(learn the appopriate use of the apostrophe- there is none called for in parlors in this instance). chiropractic is a health care profession, it's licensees have a doctor's degree in chiropractic. we resent the implication that we have anything to do with illegal massage parlor activities. this is nothing but prejudicial harassment. why don't they subject medical offices to the same disrespectful treatment?

Either your naive or you haven't been in the DC profession long. Since the PI business has tanked, chiros & their shady ambulance chasing attorneys have been scrounging for other ways to make a buck. So now the shady PI attorneys are now fleecing the public in the newfounded "loan modification" niche while some DC's are lending their licenses to questionable "massage therapists" who give "special" hands-on treatment.

Sure, not all chiros are money grubbing quacks, but your profession needs to clean house in order to regain the respectability it took so many years to build up.

Unfortunately a few lascivious types have put up shop claiming " chiropractic massage for health or actually are chiropractors running prostitution rings ... The unscrupulous make everyone pay for their actions .

I thought Mike West had Lim's ear. After all Big M goes into apoplexy with every mention of the Spearmint Rhino. That isn't ok, but a massage parlor is?

Massage parlors{a.k.a} brothels,are popping up in every city. Just like little churches here and there.And it seems we are losing our sense to VOTE for the things we want or don`t want in our communities.Are the politicians we "vote" for becoming corrupt in their own selfish way.How many of these massage parlors will actually be truly legitimate??

These massage parlors are a cover for illegal activity, such as prostitution. Furthermore, what about disease's. Most of these type businesses are operated by people who are not aware of proper sterilization of tools, pool spas which can contain many diseases and pass on to other customers and should be regulated by PUBLIC HEALTH. ANYONE CONDUCTING BUSINESS WHICH ALLOWS YOU TO PUT YOUR HANDS ON A PERSONS BODY should be LICENSED. If Cosmetologist have to be licensed to give a haircut, and manicurist to do manicures, so should so called massage therapist be licensed and monitored by Public Health and State Board. OPEN YOUR EYES TO THIS BUSINESS, Anyone who is in pain will not go to a massage parlor for a massage, they will seek out a licensed chiropractor through there medical insurance or physician. Anyone seeking a goodtime will go to a massage parlor!!!

A simple analysis:

Walnut is for sale.

Mary Su AGAIN did not disclose a recent contribution from a big shot at STC, the shopping center owner putting in the massage parlor.. You may easily verify this at the Walnut website under election financials in the city government section.(Page 12, of the 6-30-09 report)

Her abstaining deliberately and simply killed the moratorium. Her abstaining deliberately and simply let the massage parlor get in. Abstain means NO.

The parlor owner admitted people come in for sex and are turned away. She said she will be agressive turning them away. She lives in OXNARD!

Lim and Su said the NFL stadium was bad for Walnut but allow massage parlors. What is happening to our City???

Mary Su is a Lim in female clothing.

Su told the people in Belgate that she wanted Meadowpass opened. They held a fundraiser for her. She told the people on Meadowpass she would not open the road. They held a fundraiser for her.

She then abstained, trying to kill the road. She is another empty suit in Gucci clothes, nothing more. She takes credit for carpool lanes, stopping the radio towers but has done nothing but get pictures taken with politicians.

"Mayor Tom King asked the City Council to consider the ban to ensure that future massage businesses have medical oversight, such as on-site doctors, chiropractors or physical therapists. "

Docs? Chiros? You know how much they would cost? You would have to have Health insurance to get a massage.
No thank you. I rather have a young hot girl give me a massage. That's the ways it should be.

Whether happy ending or full on prostitution, what on earth does it matter? It's not like they're going to have a line of children lining up to receive services. They're not going to drag your husband in to force services on him, or lure your wife or daughter to work there. Levy a heavy tax and let consenting adults do what they want to each other - whether sexual or otherwise. Puritanical moralizing and leaping to false dilemmas such as "If you approve it, prostitution will ensue, and the 'community will unravel'." Nonsense. Be afraid. Be hysterical. Look at Industry, Roland Heights, Arcadia, San Gabriel, or even San Francisco. These have the same thing. They're not swimming up to their ears in crime stemming from such places. Their health clinics aren't collapsing under the weight of too many VD cases. Let them open. Tax them heavily. Make sure people who work there are not being exploited or held as indentured servants or slaves; make sure they are not minors etc. All that checks out, then spend your energy working on gang etc. Ask your local city hall which crimes are more abundant. I'll guess it's theft. Ask them which crimes are more destructive / deadly. I'll bet they'll tell you tagging or gangs violence. There is violence in Valinda, La Puente, probably Walnut too, which is gang or drug related. Invest all this hysterical energy there and grow up.

"The unscrupulous make everyone pay for their actions" EVERYONE? How is EVERYONE paying? What exactly is this costing EVERYONE? You're exaggerating the consequences and therefore making yourself a person with no analytical credibility.

".. your profession needs to clean house in order to regain the respectability .. " How is chiropractic equivalent to a massage parlor? Let's make sure we jump to conclusions so that we don't have to bother stating the facts. The good thing is that we can make all sorts of unfounded conclusions about the social cost/consequences of massage parlors (brothels, happy ending spas etc.), and never have to base them in fact or reality (Walnut will descend into hell if we don't stop this!).

"Are the politicians we 'vote' for becoming corrupt in their own selfish way" So having a massage parlor, legitimate or not, open, is somehow going to prevent prostitution from occurring in Walnut? Voting against legislation that regulates or prohibits a particular industry on the hopes that it will eliminate some perceived social ill, will keep communities safer? Panic driven fear mongering.

"Anyone seeking a good time will go to a massage parlor!!! " And this is going to what, exactly, to Walnut or any other community? The person goes in. The person comes out. The transaction, legal or otherwise makes nothing happen outside the doors of the business. Have a legitimate consequence before you declare that something is outrageous.

"Walnut is for sale." "What is happening to our City???" So we can all walk in to Walnut City Hall and buy a license to sell heroin, cocaine, grow marijuana, start a hit man business, print money ... What a stretch of unfounded hysteria.

Focus on repaving streets, upgrading critical infrastructure, increasing retail tax capacity, reducing graffiti, car/home break-ins, gangs, etc. Getting lathered up about what happens in a massage joint (naturally as long as it is done by consenting adults and not slaves or children - investigate that angle), is just one group fanatically imposing its lifestyle preferences upon others without considering the ACTUAL and NOT PERCEIVED consequences as proven by reality.

So Mr. Tribune editor. Why were my other comments that made logical sense, deleted. There were no profanities. There were no personal insults or attacks. Please post a warning that you will censor all comments that you disagree with, somewhere on your site so that the reading/responding public will know in advance that you're no different than Communist China in the way it censors Google.

As long as nobody is getting hurt, grown adults should be able to offer this service if there is a demand for it. It's called free market.

There are worst things. I drive down our freeways seeing big billboard signs advertising strip clubs and adult conventions where children are FORCED to see it. I find that much more distasteful than some obscure massage parlors.

Maybe you should drive to Walnut and see how much better the infrastrucure is that City compared to Rosemead. Keep the lap dance places, pot head stores, and prostitutes on Garvey Boulevard. Or go to West Hollywood or San Francisco where they appreciate that lifestyles. Communities decide how their cities should look, not dirbags.
