What is the problem with two consenting adults having sex? It is her body & if she wants to charge for it, why not? If he wants to pay for it, without having the pressure of a girlfriend, why not? They will arrest & jail these woman for making a living....but ask them to kill a child molester & they let him off with a warning. What is wrong with this country today?

Why?? They where working. Check all the people with food stamps every 15 or 30 of the month in the supermarket. They do not work.
At lease they are running a business. They are adults and ""selling something some people want.""

Prostitution is far from victimless. There is the disease spread, the underage girls, the immigrants forced into the work against their will, the drugs that go along with it, just for a starter.

Don't be naive. Prostitution in Philly is unsafe, the center of the HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B, C, and etc. epidemic in the region.

Good job to the Mayor, Police Commissioner, and the Inspector. Great to see local police working with Immigration on crimes like human trafficking.

Human trafficking is nobody's version of a victimless crime.

The article didn't mention any of the male customers getting arrested did it? Hmmm, if it's a crime to pay for sex...there would be two people involved in this dreadful crime. Hmmm. Wonder if this might betray some kind of double standard around prostitution and sex in general - "boys will be boys" on the one, slapped hand, "hookers and sluts" on the other, handcuffed one.

our government and thousands upon thousands of people make a living off the criminal justice system...
I say we rewrite the laws of this country and force police officers to work on government-owned marijuana farms

How about a zero-tolerance policy for murder, rape, arm robbery and other violent crime? Maybe the new mayor and commissioner need to reexamine their priorities

It is much more likely to contact an STD from an encounter with someone you know from work, school or church than from commercial sex. What evidence do you have that the business being discussed employed underage girls, forced illegal immigrants into prostitution or that drugs were involved?

That's not bold. That's just going where the business is.

Make sure youÂ’re not basing your opinions on fairy tales before you make that kind of statement. Read the research from the CDC about STD contraction. Then compare the innuendo released by the police initially after similar arrests with the actual facts determined by a complete investigation.
