Was anyone else's first thought upon seeing the headline: "Is that how many, or how old the oldest one was?"

"The fair wrapped up Sunday. "


I certainly hope so.

Fair food and hookers. Is this a great state fair or what?
 
2012-09-25 11:08:04 AM
Probably just another case of cops just rounding people up to meet some quota.
 
2012-09-25 11:13:17 AM
Man, and I thought getting a corn dog and a funnel cake was as good as it could get at the state fair.
 
2012-09-25 11:17:36 AM
I lived there for a number of years. The State Fair is only there for a short time. All that crime (drugs, prostitution, gang activity) is happening in that area all year round.

Because People in power are Stupid: Probably just another case of cops just rounding people up to meet some quota.


It's the one time of year they need to put on a pretty face for people who come from all over the state to visit Albuquerque during this time.

I guess you have never been to a state fair, this is not unusual. Usually though the hookers keep it a little more low key and the cops get their bribes. Some one must have forgot to pay off the police, you do have to pay off local, state, and county, so I understand if someone got a little reluctant to pay up.

I wonder how much of it was Craiglist driven...

I think they are over-exaggerating on that 85 number. There aren't that many in this crime scene photo:

Probably none. The hookers have pretty much all moved to backpage.

I lived in Albuquerque for 3 years in the mid-90s. I don't know what it's like now, but you could drive down Central Ave any time 24x7 and there would be at least a dozen (mostly scary) working girls out on the corner. Eating at the Frontier was always an interesting exercise in people watching.

Abq has a pretty bad gang problem, too.

That's probably what happened. The NM State Fair (due to low attendance in the past couple of years) had to come up with some money saving ideas. Guess the law enforcement pay-offs was one of them.

I have a clip I'd like to link that I believe is very fitting, so I'll just leave this bookmark right here and come back after work.

Gee, they found prostitutes and drugs at a carnie and whiskey-tango festival.

*facepalm*
 
2012-09-25 11:52:28 AM
There is clearly only one solution: non-prostitute women of NM, put out already!

Going to the Fair in Tallahassee as a kid 40 years ago I remember scantly clad women dancing on a small platform trying to lure men into trailers for peep shows. Not sure if there was ever any sex, or even any nudity as far as that's concerned, but I always wondered what went on inside those trailers. Maybe it was this. I know my dad sure loved going in there and it was about the only reason he had for going to the fair. By the time I came of age they'd stopped doing it. Left a huge hole in my curiosity that's for sure.

The only other area more consistently filled with drug sellers/users and whores is the Motel 6 on University under the Big I. The State Fair area is not in the greatest of locations in ABQ any time of the year.

The fairground is in the absolute worst part of town. It used to be known as the Combat Zone until the powers that be decided to retcon it; now it's the "International District." Nothing much has changed but the name, of course.
 
2012-09-25 11:57:21 AM
Buy a ticket if you want to ride the rides.

I think it's more likely that the highest bidder get getting rid of the competition.

They don't call it 'The Fun House' for nothing.
 
2012-09-25 11:59:24 AM
I was at the NM Fair last week. Apparently I missed the happy ending pavilion and the high as a kite ride.

I did get a kick out of the fact that the kids pavilion was named after Leon Harms.

LEON HARMS YOUTH HALL. Yeah honey, lets take the kids there.

How many solicitation sting arrests were made?

...

Yeah, that's what I thought.

I guess that was an interesting exhibit. Did they link up pictures to the blue ribbon winner?

Pro tip: corn dogs don't generally have a cream filling.

State fair hookers. Thank FSM they dont have any pictures. Must have been a lot of chubby chasers there. Have you seen the average state fair patron lately???
 
2012-09-25 12:58:32 PM
Well the kids have there rides...

My friend is down there right now working with other out-of-state Comcast linemen in order to get Albuquerque up to snuff. Apparently they have the worst infrastructure in their network. Someone told him it's not uncommon for carnies to lurk neaby subdivisions and steal tires off of cars for their carnival equipment.

There was a bit of a misunderstanding at the 4H barns.

I live just South of Albuquerque, and every year I think of going to the state fair, but all of my coworkers call it a "clip hjoint", so I stay away. Not big on fairs. Lived in Texas for 25 years, only went to Fiesta in San Antonio once. If I wanna see a bunch of drunk locals, I'll hang out at the mall.
