Cops Have Too Much Time In Parker County

Story. I honestly don't remember a prostitution criminal case in Wise County in the last 20 years. In unrelated news, the Messenger just tweeted, "Market goats in ring now." Developing . . .

Seriously, Ms. New drove from Mesquite to Parker County to ply her trade? Man, the economy must be worse off than we thought.

we are stuck in the stone age for still procecuting these victimless crimes. i guess some folks just dont like capitalism in its purest form.

After reading the story it sounds as if the undercover officers have sex with the prostitutes, shouldn't that be a crime as well? I know it may not be the case in this instance but I have read about other stings like this where there was sex and money was paid by the officers.

I'll bet the officers were using Wise County Classifieds for their sting operation!

Why should women in Wise charge?

Victimeless crimes, 11:47? Years ago I prosecuted an 18 year old prostitute in Tarrant County who had AIDS. I've often wondered how many people (and not just her customers, but their other partners, as well) contracted HIV thanks to her.

PS: The notoriously sympathetic judge gave her credit for time served so she could spend her last few months alive with her newborn, but I doubt that was her plan.

Prostitutes are not the only people with AIDS. Or herpes, or hepatitis B or C, or.....crabs, as those at the Wise county court house oh no so well.

Barry do you ever have anything nice to say about the police? I guess you think society should do whatever the hell it wants. No traffic laws, No drug laws, No DWI and No prostitution enforcement.

4:35, I think you are missing Barry's point. These cops weren't just picking up some streetwalker who was plying her trade in the neighborhood. They set up a sting, calling a girl and having her meet at a hotel. From what I read, there was no one complaining and these girls likely wouldn't have been in the area had they not set up their little sting.

I don't want legalized brothels everywhere, but I think vice should concentrate on where there are complaints.

Just me .02

traffic laws (including dwi) - yes - driving around badly affects others.

drugs, prostitution - no - your body

freedom and doing whatever the hell you want is a cornerstone of what this country was based on. the do-gooders dont think so, though.

5:43, Can I buy my health insurance from a company in Colorado because they offer a better plan for me than the ones that are only offered in Texas? That would be no. Is that what you call freedom? I can buy my car insurance from whoever I want though. I hate being a do-gooder and not having my freedom. Now I am going to have to get my insurance from Obammy.

Remember the Massage Parlor up on 287 north of Decatur? I think some of Wise Counties finest got caught in there with their pants down. I guess that was probably over 20 years ago though. Ahhh the good ole days!!!

4:35,
No there needs to be laws but not enforced like they are today.There use to be a common decency code for people.If the cops caught you making a mistake they were trained enough and involved enough in the community to know if you were a good guy or bad guy.Now days they try to screw you to the ground if your caught making a mistake no matter if your good or not.I know this first hand.And have seen good folks harmed in the name of "policing"society.If police acted more like people rather than a gang they would be respected rather than feared and loathed.

8:45 the reason why officers have little discretion is thanks to lawyers. Everything has to be equal for all. You want to talk about the old days, officers used to slap you upside the head and send you on your way. Maybe that's how it should be. Now society disrespects law enforcement. Just read these blogs. It's the officers fault for writing a ticket, not the drivers fault for speeding.
