02:42 pm - on victimless crimes...
so our city is bankrupt, we don't have the money to fill potholes, or salt the roads. We've laid off half the police force and removed extended unemployment compensation benefits. City parks and pools have been shutdown and the parking tax has been raised to 50%. So why in God's name is the city wasting what resources we have busting massage parlors for prostitution? I mean, couldn't our police power be better spent by sending the SWAT team after jaywalkers? Oh wait, that's right, we disbanded the SWAT team. Who cares if we don't have anyone to defend the city from terrorist attacks or armed robbery, at least we can make sure that no poor Korean woman can be paid to give a handjob.

Uhm, while I agree with you about the royal fuckup of this city, that raid took place in Westmoreland county and was conducted by state troopers.

details schmetails!

anyway... the point is still true... For the record, the lack of extended UC benefits is a state matter as well. As are some of the road issues.

"Messages posted to an Internet discussion board helped investigators home in on a Westmoreland County prostitution ring police say operated under the guise of health spas."

Now that's interesting...the police discovered this by surfing the net for massage parlors & sex sites? Evidently, PA is not poor enough to curtail internet usage. Good to know their priorities are in the right place.
