When Did This Seem Like a Good Idea?,0,6331642.story

Four Memphis, Tennessee police officers were alleged to have had sex with prostitutes, including some on duty. Three of them have resigned and one who was alleged to have hired a prostitute off duty says he will fight the allegations.

The police are supposed to do what with prostitutes? Have on duty sex with them or arrest them and put them in jail? If you are unsure of the answer, then you should not be a police officer; the answer is to arrest them and put them in jail.

The vast majority of prostitutes that I have encountered over the years have been sad people who are enslaved by drugs and vicious pimps, both of which destroy their lives at an early age. Prostitution is not a victimless crime. The money it brings in typically pays for drugs. That money goes to organized crime organizations. It corrupts families, it corrupts police, it destroys neighborhoods, and it especially destroys the lives of the people involved as prostitutes. It is real crime that deserves real enforcement, not police participation; that's what the SGT Says.

Just think, those mental midgets passed a background investigation.
