  1. Oh look, another prostitution sting where only WOMEN are arrested. I ask you, how is this fair? It takes TWO people to commit this crime. So either you’re letting the men off or you’re wasting valuable police resources trying to snag desperate women (when we all know there are actual, serious crimes happening and if there aren’t, then maybe we have too many police officers). Either way, something stinks here.
