    Martin, 15-20 in Philly? I’d bet it’s closer to 150-200! Glad I don’t live there anymore and support this worthless BS with my tax dollars! I’m in NC where it’s free (or at least a hell of a lot cheaper!)!

    I’m pleased to see that the citizens of Philadelphia realize the stupidity and waste of chasing people who are “committing” a victimless crime.

    It give me hope there are some rational people left.

  3. Louis says:

    shouldn’t the FBI be better used to go after TERRORISTS and CRIME SYNDICATES??

    yet another waste of taxpayer money :O

    this is just a pre-election POLITICAL STUNT!!

  4. JAFO says:

    Where’s the follow up? Any arrests? Don’t you usually need prostitutes to have a prostituion ring?

    Well, I suppose after the SEC employees were busted for watching porn at work the other government agencies have learned it’s less risky to get their porn stash directly from the source.

  6. Stacy says:

    Victimless crime! Great! I’m sure we’re all safe now!

  7. JPinSphilly says:

  8. WileyCodey says:

    They thought they were going to trot a bunch of poeple of in handcuffs until they realized they were just plain wrong. What a waste of money. Fail.

  11. Tis innacurate says:

    This is mis-reported. It is not a “prostitution ring” raid. The US Attorney’s office and the FBI were involved in executing the warrant.

    OMG NO! not PORN!

    It’s a porn company that was raided.

  15. Phil Kinsey says:

    Big accomplishment! Last week a prison escapee murders an innocent jeweler during a robbery attempt after an escape and failure to recapture, but we got those prostitutes and their patrons today. Now that’s good police work!?!?!?!

    Guess someone did not have a Happy Ending!
