Well now!

52 unsolved murders from last year in Palm Beach County.

Hey guys, lets go and control peoples crotches, and play mind control instead of concentrating on real crime and solving murders!

It's all about the money!

Once any governments smell usage of any laws to collect monies, there is never an end to it!

Roe vs Wade was about letting a woman do with her body what she will. They only seem to focus on allowing abortions which kill people and sever relationships. Aborting babies is a direct result of sex and both parties consenting is not necessary in order to kill baby. The nonconsenting father, his family and the baby are victims.

But prostitution is illegal. Where two people are fully consensual in their activities, discreet in their performance and both are happy with the outcome. Prostitution is also the direct result of sex, only no one is a victim.

Legalise prostitution and arrest those involved in abortions.

Unless, of course, this is politics and not logical reality.

I can tattoo myself, I can have a sex change operation, I can have gastric bypass, self mutilate, and so on and so forth, but I cannot take $$$ for having sex. It's not rape. The women are willingly selling and the men are willingly buying it. That is the basis our capitalistic society. Why is it illegal??

Murders - Up
Violent Crime - Up
Street Gang Violence - Up
Rampant Corruption in Government - Up

So what does the Police Department decide to do??? Let's utilize our limited resources to picking up girls on street corners and lonely men. Great idea!!!!

Hold on, its nearing the end of the month. Better be careful as the cops inevitably will be setting up speed traps over the next couple of days instead of patrolling roads and neighborhoods.

I wish the article and police would say how much an operation like this costs, then we could determine if it's really worth it, i mean we are the ones paying for these stings through property tax.
Q: If you ask the cop acting as a prostitute if she is a cop before any transaction is made, does she have to answer correctly?? I thought that used to be the case, but times and our rights have definetely changed post 911.

Prostitution encites violence against women (and men) and spreads diseases.
