GREENVILLE COPS CRACKING DOWN ON PROSTITUTION …
|| By FITSNEWS || Three individuals have been charged with prostitution following a recent raid on the Platinum Plus strip club in Greenville, S.C. – the latest example of tax dollars being used to crack down on behavior which ought to be perfectly legal.
Michael Wayne Hughey, 34, of Seneca, S.C., Keri E. Barnett, 23, of Hendersonville, N.C. and Crystal Anne Bullock, 24, of Greenville, S.C. were all busted for aiding and abetting prostitution. It’s the latest in a series of charges filed in conjunction with an ongoing Greenville County Sheriff’s office investigation … which is a dubious use of government resources considering there’s plenty of actual crime to be fighting.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Prostitution should be decriminalized in South Carolina (and all over the country).
“If a man or woman wishes to rent out his or her body for a specific period of time – it should be their right to do that,” we wrote. “Government should not pass laws precluding them from such actions.”
Especially not in a state as dirt poor as South Carolina …
But hey … let’s keep subsidizing the entrapment of consenting adults.
God knows they need to be protected from the horrors of enjoying themselves. Or making some actual money for a change.
Nah, it’s better if it’s illegal… Verboten … and not taxed like in Taxifornia … Hunger is the best sauce.
The serious felony is the slave trade that too often comes along with it.
Be careful going there. The bouncers have been known to kill people and people have been know to kill the bouncers. Watch out for stray bullets and make sure you pay those whores.
“make sure you pay those whores”
lol, great advice.
Yes, best advice, those bitches know how to roll ;)
reminds me of this song –
Who was really the fool? ;)
Whores wouldn’t have a job less their were desperate men? Bounce that?
Chamber of Commerce: Prostitution is the only industry that isn’t leaving town…
Good luck getting it legalized now. The latest little cause-du-jour (joining DUI, seat belts, anti-texting, CDV, ad nauseaum) is “human trafficking”. Any woman selling her body, no matter how willingly, will be deemed to be a victim of human trafficking in much the same way that any woman with a minor bruise or red place on her arm is a CDV victim and the accused is a “wife beater”.
You’re right…the “human trafficking” scam is a hot ticket federal prosecutors, big city chiefs, and pols everywhere these days. It’s really much ado about nothing- there’s very little “human trafficking” in the US if you’re talking about women being kidnapped (or even forced into employment under duress). In the homeland security business, though, talking critically about this nonsense is like criticizing the fire service. People let their emotions take over and go stupid…truly a third rail situation.
FYI…3rd rail is reserved for old-people health care. I’m pretty sure we aren’t on that same level.
Ha! True enough on the old people.
As for stats, I have not the energy (or time) to start an entire sub-thread on all of that. Besides, when the feds get to define the crime as they see fit, the stats magically show a bent in their favor, you know? Much like when a county or city cracks down on some crime, then gets beaten over the head when their “crime rate” goes up the next year (due to the increased reporting). How about a quick example to demonstrate my point instead?
First check out the salacious headline and fear mongering on this FBI website:
“It’s sad but true: here in this country, people are being bought, sold, and smuggled like modern-day slaves.”
Run! Hide your daughters, right?
So, scared helicopter mommies then click on a link to get the 411 on the prosecution of one of the heinous daughter-thieves:
Read that press release…horrible, jackass, criminal behavior- no doubt. Human trafficking? Hell yes, because federal says so! What is it really? Kidnapping, prostitution, battery, etc. All evil and worthy of an ass-whipping or prison.
So, no pity for any of the clowns who get tied up with these prosecutions, just know that *very* few represent what the human trafficking movement uses to pain their PR picture. There are no roving gangs of slavic thugs from former Soviet republics looking for young girls to kidnap, dope up, and take to brothels to await Liam Neeson’s arrival. Since prosecuting these clowns is never a bad thing, it’s only the fear-mongering and hyperbole that gets annoying.
Charge ’em all. Lock ’em up. No worries. Just be honest about we’re talking about and quit trying to milk the fear-mongering piece. Of course, in other parts of the world, there IS human trafficking on a very real scale so don’t let my rambling conflate the two issues..
Your criminal justice trivia / narrow slice moment of zen for the evening…
There are no roving gangs of slavic thugs from former Soviet republics looking for young girls to kidnap, dope up, and take to brothels to await Liam Neeson’s arrival.
Mad props, Amigo. Mad props!
High praise, indeed!
Finally! We again agree on something!!!! Bravo!
Most liberals use little boys, not women…so they don’t care if the women are put out of business.
Steve Benjamin may get P!$$#d. And Bill Clinton does not want little girls taken off the market……but they’ll likely get a pass on prosecution, anyway…
Here you go again with the gay sex stuff. Since the Champagne Room is for non-gays – I guess you’re in the Creme de Cacao Room?
“Human trafficking” has way more to do with immigration than prostitution,. Secure the borders and fix the problem.
Runaway teens also fall into the trap of human trafficking.
True, but as Mike noted, the police chiefs, sheriffs, and DHS’ers have parlayed this into one gigantic cash/power cow.
If they are that bored they can make a run for the border and assist the border patrol.
I agree, IF we allow a passage to citizenship
A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered dolphins that could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of seagulls. One day, his supply of the birds ran out so he had to go out and trap some more. On the way back, he spied two lions asleep on the road. Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them. Immediately, he was arrested and charged with:
Transporting gulls across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.
More where that came from…
Thanks! That’s a new one for me…….10+
bonus for ya’…
A bear walks into a bar in Billings, Montana and sits down. He bangs on the bar with his paw and demands a beer.
The bartender approaches and says, “We don’t serve beer to bears in bars in Billings.”
The bear, becoming angry, demands again that he be served a beer.
The bartender tells him again, more forcefully, “We don’t serve beer to belligerent bears in bars in Billings.”
The bear, very angry now, says, “If you don’t serve me a beer, I’m going to eat that lady sitting at the end of the bar.”
The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars in Billings.”
The bear goes to the end of the bar, and as promised, eats the woman.
He comes back to his seat and again demands a beer.
The bartender states, “Sorry, we don’t serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars in Billings who are on drugs.”
The bear says, “I’m NOT on drugs.”
The bartender says, “You are now. That was a barbitchyouate!”
An intoxicated woman sits at a bar, “barbender bring me another drink.”
He reluctantly brings another drink, but declares he is not the barbender and that is her last drink.
She sips it in gulps and yells, “barbender, bring me another drink.”
He informs her that he is not the barbender but the bartender, and this is her absolute last drink.
She gulps it down and says, “barbender please pring me another brink, my heart is on fire.”
He replies, “lady, I’ve told you once, it it not barbender, but bartender and your heart is not on fire, you boob is in the ashtray.”
When you stop drinking, you have to deal with this marvelous personality that started you drinking in the first place.
Or you take out all the female parts that make you question why you had them in the first place? PMS is awful for me. I know TMI, I usu bite my tongue, but it’s bleeding.
You …you…..you….would ask for them :)
Heh-Heh! She might be someone I knew?
I was just going to ask – what would you do with them? ;)
“what would you do with them?” — the fotos or the girls?
Yes, those! :)
Photos given to me are kept in a file cabinet in a folder marked “ANSWERED PRAYERS”….
And never shared as trophies?
What about the “girls” do tell.
Stripper/hooker booking photos tend to inspire very little prurient interest. There’s a reason it’s all dark up in da club.
I’ve been more than pleasantly surprised by some of the girls from Platinum Plus (Columbia). Treat them to the Waffle House if you want to see them in the GLARING LIGHT! Then you can decide on your options.
Unless your nipples are pierced and the light shines. ha!
Yeah…just what we need…more vice…
You are already throwing babies in trash cans, raping children in single digits… and “knock-out” killing white people because they are hated by you…while Obama preaches NO responsibility for the immoral and decadent…
You haven’t FILTHIED the culture enough, yet??….You liberals don’t give a S#!t if your children (the ones not aborted) have to slurp from a septic tank…and long as you can slide lower…and get your rocks off in even deeper depravity…
You are DISGUSTING….
and the best thing about it is that it pisses you off!!!!!
Dead children and pedophiles..yeah that P!$$#$ me off….
And the fact you’re laughing at those dead bodies – and raped kids – is the epitome of the character Democrat Party…
See https://www.fitsnews.com/2015/04/13/trey-gowdy-calls-for-halt-to-spartanburg-refugee-resettlement/ … For other human trafficking news.
There is no real difference … in this case, it’s for the sex trade. … In the linked case, it’s for politics.
In addition the pedophile bus drivers from CPS in Taxifornia are in violation of both the Mann Act and the Lindbergh Laws. Where do the SC drivers come from?
Politics is sex on steroids. Every politician, save maybe Graham, wants a pretty woman on his arm. These women are for hire, but not for sex in most/many cases, They are company by the hour.
“If a man or woman wishes to rent out his or her body for a specific period of time – it should be their right to do that,”
Will would be a hypocrite to have any objection if is his wife, son, or daughter chose to be a prostitute.
Exactly, with all the government hand outs these days, no one CHOOSES a “career” of prostitution. Most prostitutes are drug addicts. The movie “Pretty Woman” is FICTION!!!
I had a friend who was a horrible addict. I smoked pot in my youth (high school), did purple microdot (sp?) once and after 21, my life changed.
I once, being a rescuer, went to find her. I even offered money to get her back. She was addicted to crack and there was no getting her back. They use, abuse, and discard. That is the game. I had just moved to SC – no idea who anyone was, she was a new friend, but ….. it was sad.
Selling or renting a part of one’s body is unconstitutional to say the least.
I bet your two favorite presidential candidates,Ted Cruz and Rand Paul,don’t agree with you on this(although Paul might philosophically but since he has sold out to the Hard Right won’t admit it).
RON Paul might, but he wouldn’t stand up for them. He doesn’t a fight in him, save his personal convictions. I agree with him on Liberty, but horribly disagree on foreign policy.
We know the dumbocrats would agree with you. We know their golden boy Hillary’s husband Bill more than likely not only had sex in the champagne room, he did it in the oval office too.
“Lack of values”
I always find it interesting cops cracking down on prostitution. Is that literal or metaphorical? Having dated a criminal lawyer – for all you working girls. Demand an ID. Make the cop show you his “stuff” first. If he is unwilling to reveal the “goods” either a pervert or a cop. Take your pick.
Of greater importance in Greenville is the amount of homeless. It is in many counties. You can’t even feed them in the public parks we pay for? Hmmmm…..
A very drunk woman stood up at the bar and yelled:
“I WILL SCREW ANYONE… ANYWHERE…ANY TIME!!!”
TBG politely inquired as to her hourly rate and which law firm she worked …
A guy walks up to a hooker and asks, “How much do you charge to rub the genitals?” She says, “The same as the Jews.”
Hey, expertise isn’t cheap ;)
A husband and wife were resting on a beach when they noticed a girl with a travel bag. She would approach people with boom boxes and other electronic devices and speak to them. Occasionally she would hand them something and walk off.
“She’s probably selling drugs,” said the woman.
The man decided to see for himself. The wife watched as her husband walked across the beach to the girl with the travel bag. They spoke briefly, and then her husband returned.
“Is she selling drugs,” asked the Wife anxiously?
“No, she’s not,” replied her Husband. ‘She’s selling batteries.”
“You don’t mean…?”
“Yep,” finished her husband. “She sells c-cells by the sea shore!”
You are something…..hmmm I need to come up with some man bashing jokes! Still…thinking :>)
here’s one for ya’
A lady calls the police to report her husband is missing. The police arrive and ask for a description. She
tells them he’s 6 feet 2 inches tall, blonde wavy hair and has a smile that makes everybody love him.
The police then go to the next door neighbor to verify this report and the lady next door tells the police, “You can’t believe her. He’s 5 feet 4 inches tall, has no hair and he wears a perpetual frown on his face.”
The neighbor then goes and asks the lady why she gave the police such a false report. She replies, “Just because I reported him missing, doesn’t mean I wanted him back!”
LOLOLOL great one!
Share that one with you hubby….
Oh Shifty, you know me too well….hmmmm. ;)
When I have time later I’ll write up my experiences about having a night club act with a stripper.
PS: She was the only stripper on a Greek island.
Was the island the home of Sappho?
A luscious beauty came over to me once at a dinner party and whispered into my ear, “Do you want to have some fun?” I told her I did. So she sold me a joke book.
Since the Masters is over——
A man boarded a bus with both of his front pockets full of golf balls, and sat down next to, of all people a beautiful blonde. The blonde kept looking quizzically at him and his bulging pockets.
Finally, after many such glances from her, he said, “It’s golf balls.”
Nevertheless, the blonde continued to look at him thoughtfully and finally, not being able to contain her curiosity any longer, asked, “Does it hurt as much as tennis elbow?”
The price was too high or there would be more to this story …. LOL
Consider that stolen as of right now.
“Prostitute A guy is hanging out in his favorite bar when he spots a fabulous babe walking in on the arm of some ugly man. He asks the bartender about her and is surprised to discover that she’s a prostitute. He watches her the rest of the night, amazed that someone so attractive could be available to him. The next night he goes back to the bar, and sure enough she shows up again, only this time alone. The guy gets up his nerve and approaches her. “Is it true you’re a prostitute?” “Why, sure, big boy. What can I do for you?” “Well, I dunno. What do you charge?” “I get $100 just for a handjob. We can negotiate from there.” “$100!! For a handjob? Are you nuts?” “You see that Ferrari out there?” The guy looks out the front door, and sure enough there’s a shiny new Ferrari parked outside. “I paid cash for that Ferrari with the money I made on handjobs. “Trust me, it’s worth it.” The guy mulls it over for a while, and decides what the hell. He leaves with her, and gets the most unbelievable experience he’s ever had. This handjob was better than any complete sexual experience in his miserable life. The next night he’s back at the bar, waiting eagerly for her to show up. When she does, he immediately approaches her. “Last night was incredible!” “Of course it was. Just wait till you try one of my blowjobs.” “How much is that?” “$500” “$500!?! C’mon, that’s ridiculous!” “You see that apartment building across the street?” The guy looks out front at a 12 story apartment building. “I paid cash for that building with the money I made on blowjobs. Trust me, it’s worth it.” Based on the night before, the guy decides to go for it. He leaves with her, and once again is not disappointed. He nearly faints – twice. The next night he can hardly contain himself until she shows up. I’m hooked, you’re the best! Tell me, what’ll it cost me for some pussy?” She motions for him to follow her outside. She points down the street, where between the buildings he can see Manhattan. “You see that island?” “Aw, c’mon! You can’t mean that!” She nods her head. “You bet. If I had a pussy, I’d own Manhattan!”
Just for you Henry and Tonto ;)
Thanks —- I’ll add it to my collection!
