  1. Will the names be published? Not of the prostitutes but the johns. They are the criminals. Get with it law cops and judges. Put your enforcement where the gonads lie. Or were you there?

    My opinion on the prostitution sting is that it’s messed up. there are alot of men out there that just want to meet girls. not every woman walking down the street are prostitutes and not every man are out there looking for a nasty prostitute.Plus what I have researched about what happened in this sting is that the under cover prostitute cop waved down the cars. thats not normal…. I am 100 % against prostituting and all that. but this sting doesn’t seam right.. Why don’t you guys go under cover and catch the nasty real prostitutes. there are child molesters out there runnin free…. go catch them.. don’t set men up like this.

  3. I think they should be doing stings on both the prostitutes and the Johns. They are both braking the law. People don’t forget the Green River Killer was a John & the prostitutes was his victims. People tend to forget that even prostitutes and people and they have a name and loved ones as well. If you want to blame anyone blame the pimps that beats and forces girls to sell their bodies and then take the money they made. They take young girls who are broke and homeless and sells them a dream. Then they brake,abuse, both mental & physical and so much more.
