So, Honey, How was Work?

I gave at the office.
Spotsylvania County Sheriff Howard Smith said he stands by the practice of allowing detectives to receive sexual services in the course of their investigations so they can catch suspects in the act.

Court documents show that four times last month, county detectives allowed women at a massage parlor to perform sex acts on them. In one case, a lawman left a $350 tip. Smith acknowledged the practice is not new.

That's crap. Unless the cop is going to arrest himself for solicitation of a prostitute along with his target. Either that or it's entrapment.*

They get an A for effort however...

I'm not a lawyer either, but I did see a lot of Miami Vice. I think cops can do pretty much anything they want, as long as the crusty old lieutenant doesn't find out. He's a real buzzkill.

Edward James Olmos certainly qualifies as "crusty."

I just stayed at a Holiday Inn Express so I know that it is a crime for ANYONE to solicit sex for money. Both go to jail!

Book 'em Dano!

Look, I want to make one thing clear -- I thought the cop was a prostitute!
