Skip to comments.No Allegations of Human Trafficking and Women Could Have Walked Out in Florida Massage Parlor Stings

Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, was charged today in Florida as part of a massage-parlor prostitution enforcement effort there. The 77-year-old NFL team owner is one of more than 150 men accused of soliciting prostitution. Police say they've been investigating the spa he visited, Orchids of Asia Day Spa, since October 2018.

I’m amazed prostitution is still illegal.
Seems like this is the morality police on the move. Is it ok to secretly video naked people? Why not in dressing rooms or in bathrooms?
Sounds like entrapment. If it was a house of prostitution the county/city should have shut them down. Besides Clinton fellatio is not sex.
If the women were enslaved, then why did the police keep them as slaves for six months while making more videos of the massages?
More interesting is the way the cops were even able to record this.
Apparently, they phoned in a fake bomb threat, so while everyone was evacuated outside the building they could install their secret cameras ... just curious, how is that legal??
Kraft walks guaranteed and my butt would be puckered were I involved in this entrapment because they are going to get their asses sued off by him.
It’s still illegal because government hasn’t found a way to tax it yet.
Because, at the beginning, cops can get away with whatever they want. If they’re caught, then it may be delayed for a short time.
State by state or county by county, they have seen fit to make illegal a business which is the oldest profession and one which will never go away.
"...Early reports from local news said that all of this was "tied to an international human-trafficking and prostitution ring," but police have offered no evidence of that so far. The whole case is reminiscent of a 2016 sting in Seattle, announced with similarly dire fanfare but yielding nothing but prostitution findings (and a lot of misery for those targeted by police).
"Law enforcement has yet to back up the serious claims their massive operation was premised on. They've also backed down from some of the more shocking assertions offered at the starteven as more media have run with the sex-slavery ring narrative. Whatever comes, it's clear this story has already developed meme-like proportions that obscure the reality of the situation. Perhaps the truth lies somewhere between dens of captive sex slaves and totally empowered and free workers, but we'll never get there by treating this as a movie-style rescue fantasy."
More bs from the local yocals looking to forward their careers, get their faces in the media over grandiose claims of horrible things that never happened over a victimless crime which needs to be regulated and taxed rather than pushed into the shadows.
The Brits have this sussed. No public solicitation or pimping but ladies who choose to work in the profession are protected by law enforcement if they are harmed and they pay taxes for income earned.
We colonists can be so slow and backward at times.
Not sure this will all have a happy ending.
Ironically, no one understands that this is the story.
Anyone who thinks Florida State Atty for Palm Beach County @aronberg wasn't contacted directly by Democrats that week and either was ordered or flat-out offered to pre-empt an ongoing invest into a handful of Florida spa ho's (**yawn**) to directly divert MSM attention away from the Jussie Smokeit Hoax, well, let's just let an FOIA do the talking and subpoena his phone records.
I knew they were lying when they used the trafficking excuse.
I do beleive the humorous part of this is that if those charged claim they knew they were being filmed they might have a good chance at walking.
Down here in Florida when the story broke, the eager “journalist” mentioned Mr. Kraft is the owner of the Patriots, then IMMEDIATELY piped up, “and he is a friend of Donald Trump!”
Where did you hear about the false bomb threat?
In Australia, the prostitutes advertise in the local papers (similar to advertiser papers here).
I should have brought an example of such an ad back with me.
Not sure whether legal prostitution is more corrosive of society or not.
It has been around forever, as long as we have records. Prostitution is fairly common in both the old and new testaments in the bible.
Jesus Christ had at least one prostitute in his family line, Rahab. Tamar disguised herself as a prostitute to get pregnant by her father-in-law, Judah.
In the 1800-1900s, prostitution was regarded as a threat to marriage, because it provided competition to wives. Now marriage is under attack, and prostitution is championed by the same people who are working hard to destroy marriage as an institution, as we have known it for a thousand years.

I read that all these girls had smart phones on them. Do captive sex slaves normally carry around smart phones?
