Serious note, there are dead and missing children out there right now. There's streets women can't walk down at night without getting raped or worse. There's bullets flying in the ghetto over a chemicals we used to put in children's medicine. (seriously herion for kids, look it up)

Why do these jokers have undercover detectives with enough free time to be working vice crime? Hookers are natural. It's the oldest profession. Chimps invented it as well about ten seconds after scientists taught them about money. It's in our DNA.

These guys and the traffic cops need to talk a short walkndown to the chief en masse and say "We are not police officers to harass private citzens. We're here to serve and protect, not shake down people for money! We will not be squandered like this!"

I love the PSA at the end of the article:

"Police urged anyone caught up in prostitution to seek help. The Northwest Human Services Crisis and Information Hotline is available 24-hours day at 1-800-560-5535 and the Mid-Valley Women's Crisis Service can be reached at their 24-hour crisis line at 503-399-7722. 
The Salem Police Department urges anyone who seeks assistance getting out of prostitution or who knows of anyone who needs assistance to contact their local service providers or call 911. "

So they help this woman escape prostitution by plastering her arrest, name, and photo all over the Internet, forever.

It's all about how you carry yourself.

If you were a sex slave, you'd throw yourself at the police and be "Thank you! Save me! My pimp he's so bad!"

If you're like "Nah, man. I ain't no prostitute. I'm just here to fix the cable." You're gettin' arrested.
Trust me on that last one.

I don't think we can trust you without further details.  Random internet person says "Trust me" I think "Don't trust him."  It involved a dog didn't it.  That's why you don't want to say anything.  You were pimping out dogs you evil creature.

If police in Oregon go around dressed like this, it'd be hard for prostitutes to take them seriously...

Hey, it's my town! Salem: Land of Civil Servants and Politicians! Picked-on, weird little brother of Portland, who tries to flaunt its status as State Capital around, but no one gives a damn.

Trust me, Salem cops don't really have much else to do than this. It's either pick on prostitutes or drive around and harass drivers for one made-up reason or other. The one time I actually needed them (some drunk guy was waving a gun around in the street, and my wife and I were pinned down in our car, because apparently he was mad at us for some reason), they took 20 minutes to arrive and we'd already managed to flee long before then. I was going to run his drunk ass over, but his friends got him out of the street before I had the chance.

By the time Salem PD arrived, the gun was in a dumpster somewhere, but drunkie was stupid enough to admit he'd been waving it around and threatening us. "Disorderly Conduct", they called it. He was told to leave the neighborhood and never come back (he was visiting friends half a block over).

CSB, I know, but my wife still has nightmares about that night. Salem PD are worthless.

OK, and at what point do crimes stop being minor enough to begin to be enforced? Drug crimes? What quantity? Sales but not supplying? Dealing but not smuggling? Petty theft but not grand larceny? Fraud? Assault if both parties were drunk? Battery if nobody was really hurt? They do have more serious crimes to deal with than just a couple of neighbors thumping each other over property lines after all. They shouldn't be squandered like that.

I'm only half kidding. When exactly do you want the cops to start enforcing the law? When the crime starts affecting you and yours? Are you going to be so tolerant of natural hookers practicing the world's oldest profession when they're walking down YOUR street and working YOUR sons for a quick $20? (And before you tell me piously that you don't have any sons, I'm sure your neighbors do. Will they be just as happy to see whores plying their trade across the street?)

A lot of prostitutes are victims of violence and even kidnapping/slavery. This sounds like kind of a BS operation, but if they used this sort of opportunity to build cases against violent pimps who turn out children, then it's worthwhile.

Argyle82: lol they have hookers in Salem???? hahahhahaha


Spotted quite often downtown, near Pine and Broadway (Highland Elementary is a particularly popular area for hookers and junkies), and along Portland Road (which becomes Highway 99E). But they are not exactly anything to write home about, thus why the police ordered up one special from Portland.

If that were the case, they would just debrief the people they snag, not charge them.

Instead of exchanging money for sex acts, however, the 20-year-old Portland woman was greeted by detectives and taken into custody on charges of prostitution and promoting prostitution, police said.

doglover: If you were a sex slave, you'd throw yourself at the police and be "Thank you! Save me! My pimp he's so bad!"


Interestingly, people who find themselves in a state of slavery don't have much discretion regarding what to do with their lives. They are usually monitored quite closely, and aren't given the opportunity to wander alone so they can find some police officer they can throw themselves at.

Of course, the police don't help much. When you are promoted because of how many arrests you can make, most officers take the easy way out and arrest the prostitute, then ship them to ICE for deportation. WIN-WIN. That way, when the word gets out, the women/girls in sexual slavery know that the police won't help them, and their only chance of survival is to keep the slaver happy

.

Gyrfalcon: I'm only half kidding. When exactly do you want the cops to start enforcing the law? When the crime starts affecting you and yours?

It's called "prioritizing" You will never have the resources to do EVERYTHING. In basic project management, you divide the project up into 3 priorities. A is must do or you fail. B is you do everything you can to make it happen except danger the success of A. C is to do it if you can, but if you can't, no biggie.

(Yes, I know the official terms: constrain, optimize, accept)

So the director of the police, and policymakers have, as part of their job description, the task of listing which laws are A, B and C priorities.

My thought? If there are no victims, then the priority is automatically C. So, for example, prostitution, the cop should just tip his hat and say "please don't do that ma'am, or at least don't be so blatant."

And sexual slavery? Take the slaver and shoot him on the spot, get the girl to someplace where they can take care of her which doesn't have bars on the window.

Short answer: Selfish Genes - Note that the "alpha males" (de facto leaders) in our society - Cops, Politicians, Religious Clerics etc - seem to be unhealthily fixated on sanctions of their "underlings" sexual activities with laws against prostitution, birth control/abortion, gays, censorship of sexual entertainment etc

Many animal societies have developed this way, in order for the alpha males to propagate their genes rather than their rival's. Even though this is no longer applicable to our society. the basic wiring in our authority figures brains still kicks in with depressing regularity. Fortunately, "love will find a way" allowing enough genetic variation to ensure survival of the species.

It may even release some endorphins in their brains which means alpha males actually experience pleasure when they stick their noses into consenting adult's activities and explains while they spend an inordinate amount of time doing it.

Clearly, we as a species have some more evolving to do..

It is in most countries worth going to and a few more you should avoid also.
