    Wow, they must be some super brave deputies going after consenting adults. Instead of focusing on getting headlines for “moral law” violations, maybe they could do more breaking and entering, theft, burglary type investigations. But I guess that’s too difficult for these “brave” fellas. Always taking the easy way. I guess the Sheriff has to justify his level of staffing and their existence and overtime in some way. Pathetic, and a waste of time and taxpayer monies.

Or rapist or accident killers? etc. It is enough that the family and friends have to read about it but what about the innocent children going back to school and now are bullied because adults talk.

        You demonstrate that you are completely ignorant of reality. You probably believe everything you watch and or read like a fool.

      • embarrassed to be from Charles Co on November 22, 2013 at 4:10 pm

        For those of you commending the Sheriff’s Department’s “fine” use of it’s time and resources by busting (entrapment, could arguably be a better word for it) it’s private citizens for soliciting prostitution on the internet, I have to say that your simple mindedness is ABSOLUTELY unfathomable to me and makes me embarrassed to have grown up in Charles County. Those of you who argued that this operation is getting criminals off the streets are just simply wrong. The vast majority of these people are NOT going to be sentenced to any jail time whatsoever. Instead of focusing on real criminals and real enforcement type operations, our lazy and stupid Sheriffs department is conducting Internet Stings for two reasons, neither of which are deserving of any praise whatsoever. First, this type of operation is EASY. It takes minimal ingenuity, effort and resources to have a single female officer sitting around on a computer trolling around the internet entrapping horny and lonely people versus setting up high end undercover drug enforcement operations. So instead of protective the safety of it’s citizens as intended, the Sherriff’s department is out dictating morals and inflicting scare tactics on the very citizens they are supposed to be protecting. It is a travesty. Then to top it all off, before those charged even see a judge and with no regard for due process of law, the Sheriff’s department make the alleged offender’s photos available to the media and have their reputations ruined by placing them on the front page of newspapers and websites. Innocent or guilty, all these people are completely SCREWED. Personally, I would rather go to jail for a few months than to be publicly humiliated like that. Which brings me to my second point, this whole thing was nothing more than a PUBLICITY stunt, pure and simple. Like I said before, very few of these people are going to get any real punishment from the courts on this matter. Their punishment is the humiliation to themselves and to their families. What the operation was intended for was to try and deter people in the community from making the same mistakes. So in that regard, it maybe was somewhat a success as it will lead people to think twice. But, in the mind of most scholars and academics of human sexuality, there is very little success to be had when it comes to suppressing human sexuality (ie. catholic church sex scandals or African Aids epidemic). In Maslow’s “Hierarchy of Human Needs” he lists sexual intimacy as one of the classifications of basic human biological needs right along with food, water, and sleep. If they can’t find willing accommodation in the sexuality department, people are going to find a way which typically means turning to prostitution. So, ultimately, I seriously doubt Operation Risky Business will have any real value at all to the community. This whole ordeal was nothing more than an attempt from a lazy, stupid and ethically corrupt organization, to make it appear to the community that it is doing its job. Bullsh*t. Had this been an operation to get hookers and john’s off the street of southern Maryland, than you could consider it effective policing since it would have benefited the quality of life for its citizens because no one wants to see the sex trade going on in their own community! But, Operation Risky business had no such value on anyone’s quality of life since it was conducted PRIVATELY behind their own homes and bedrooms on THEIR PERSONAL COMPUTERS! People need to mind their own business. The only obtrusive aspect was the police themselves! And you morons talking about how the cops are stopping the spread of STD’s and saving housewives, please, that is the dumbest thing I ever heard. I do believe there is an invention called the PROPHYLACTIC whose job it is to stop the spread of STDs. So the cops can leave the job to TROJAN Industries, and go do their freaking jobs, which should be busting the people dealing the drugs that are ruining so many people lives in our community.

    I care more about the unsolved murder that occurred on the 3 Notch Trail. It seems that the one case of human trafficking uncovered in this sting, wasn’t even investigated further. Same thing with the prescription narcotics. I’d like to see the sheriffs dept invest the same amount of effort in to a sting to bring down the networks of shady doctors who supply the region with painkillers. That’s the epidemic that creates the most crime in our area.

    • SoMd Citizen on August 12, 2013 at 8:51 am

        it is, dont think one crime goes unpunished or unsolved for a lack of trying. Did you not read on the homicide? There are multiple agencies working that case and it takes a lot longer time to solve a murder then time to make a sting arrest for prostitution…

        • Anonymous on August 13, 2013 at 11:51 am

          First 48 hours are the most crucial in a homicide investigation and the closure rate falls dramatically with each additional day that passes. I have been staying informed and reading on the updates but not much info is being released. It just seems like a lot of resources (patrol officers and K-9 units as per the press release) were involved in this sting over the weekend during those first 48 hours of the homicide investigation. I’d like to think that our sheriffs dept has an over abundance of resources and could adequately handle this sting and the homicide inv at the same time but I’m not naive. It’s a relative small dept as are the other dept’s who are assisting in the homicide inv. I’m by no means disappointed in the sting’s results, im just more concerned with the larger issue.

    Jimsomething I think you just wanted to get a rise out of good people but since you did….

    “Consenting adults” consent to sex without bribes because they are “into” each other…. not OWNED by an addiction or a NEED to get cash to survive or buy drugs. At least that’s how the law abiding folks who are able to function normally in a world of attraction work. We are capable of finding mates without bribes. If someone doesn’t want to have sex with you without the payment for it – it’s not consenting and he/she is not into you. Maybe that pops your bubble. Maybe it stings a little too closely for you because it could have been you? And it really “ticks” you off because one of your “consenting” acquaintances stole your chainsaw when you weren’t looking? Reading between the lines….

    These officers did an OUTSTANDING job. There are several unknown victims being protected from further harm thanks to the efforts of these officers. Victims many people can’t wrap their brains around and don’t want to.

    A few more homes and cars will not be robbed this week thanks to the unavailability of these criminals. Thank you.

    A young woman wasn’t sold for sex trafficking. Maybe this saved her life. Thank you.

    The wives of some of these men will not be assaulted under false pretenses with the exposure to filth off the streets in their marital beds. There are no laws that protect and defend the wives of these men. These men are breeching the contract they have with their wives, breeching the trust established between them, and then coming back home to their wives where they enter into the marital bed for a consenting sexual relationship under false pretenses. There’s no informed consent for her. The wife believing this man has only been with her, per their contract with each other, per his word to his wife, consents to sex with him based on deceit and he exposes her and injects her with the filth that comes with sleeping with many. She has unknowingly now had unprotected sex with strangers and assumed all the risks that come with that – without a choice. She wasn’t given all the facts to make that choice. She was conned. What protects and saves her when she is riddled with disease or her life is shortened? Nothing. She is just another victim. Her only chance of making decisions based on reality is for the truth to be exposed. These officers did that for her and may very well have saved their lives.

    Crime, Jimsomething, is a very complex and tangled web with many victims caught up in the stickiness of it. Step back and look at the ripples and then look further. I’ve only mentioned a couple of things. There is so much more and it’s so much worse than I could type or even fathom.

    Stop them now and prevent them from evolving into more severe criminals. Great police work. Thank you. Keep it up!

    This is shameful. Knowing one of these people and to think he/she used to be an outstanding person in the community. It’s hard when you lose a loved one. But to do this kind of act. Lean on your family. Don’t go out and so something like this. That’s embarrassing to say the least. You not only embarrass yourself, but everyone you worked with and all who knew you. Get your life back together.

    There is a lot of hatred written in these comments. It’s amazing how many perfect people read your paper. Do the words “human nature” mean nothing? Yes, this is on the books as a crime but it’s way past time these laws were reviewed. The lives of many decent people have been forever changed by splashing their photographs over the page. Splashing the pictures not once but twice also. There was no need to mention their full name, “nickname,” age, and occupation. They are already paying their so called debt to society by way of total embarrassment before they even go to trial. Ease up all of you “pure” people.

      You don’t even know what kind of a man he is. For God’s sake he lost his wife and he was lonely. I bet you are one of those self rightous women that never even smoked a little pot or had one too many beers. or had sex before she got married. right??????????????????????? all our kids had him and he was great. do you feel better now? making sure that his family reads your reply. WOW !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!right back at you and all the rest of your kind.

      • Jack Wagon on August 13, 2013 at 9:19 am

        SO what if he lost his wife? That doesnt make it ok to go out and break the law! He should have stayed home and watched porn on the internet like all the other single guys!

          maybe, he needed a warm body. maybe, he tried porn like the rest of you single men. Have you also lost a wife of many many years? And it was two consenting adults? He got caught big deal !!!! he wasn’t trying to rape anyone just get a little comfort. haven’t you ever thought about it? Be truthful in God’s eyes if you think it. then you have already committed the sin. To lust in your heart is the same as doing it. you mention porn. SO YOU ARE GUILTY. Look in the mirror and learn your bible.

    This country needs to lighten up some.

      I agree. I was actually a student of one of the guys here and I gotta say… he’s not really a bad guy at all. For all I know, he might have just been really depressed and decided to do something he wouldn’t normally. I’m not condoning his actions either, I’m just saying that all these angry lynch mobbers should be empathetic of the situation and understand that he didn’t do anything violent or harmful to anyone. I also hope everyone raises their pitchforks and torches, they take a good look at themselves too.

    The comments section reveal how little understanding there is about women involved in ‘sex work’. People are degrading them, calling them ugly and skanky while trading tips on not getting caught paying for sex. The reporter should have taken a bit of time to research why women are involved in the sex trade – they’d find that the majority are products of childhood sexual abuse and were often sold into sex as minors. The psychological effects of that are often insurmountable leaving women to feel like the only value they have, and the only thing they can offer, is sex. Often, to deal with their pain and trauma, they turn to drugs and alcohol and use prostitution as a means to finance their chemical escapes. These women should be treated with compassion and respect – not like sub-human trash.

    • Jack Wagon on August 13, 2013 at 9:22 am

      Why? This wasnt a documentary on the sex trade of Southern Maryland. It was just a report on a prostitution sting.

  20. Jim Something on August 12, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    Wow, sure are many super ethically and morally superior people here who never, ever, commited any moral law violation. Get a life. Here is my motto, “Doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you don’t hurt the person or property of another.” Want to cheat on your wife, not my problem. Want to pay for sex, go for it. Smoke a joint in your basement, go ahead. But once your activities cause harm to others or their property, then you go to jail. Drink all you want, kill or harm someone with your car, go to jail… 1st time offense, period. None of these liberal coddling laws.
    Peace!

  21. Anonymous Woman on August 12, 2013 at 5:45 pm

    What makes it difficult to give a universal comment or point of view are the varying degrees of wrong and the wide variety of walks of life all wrapped up in one story. Then there are comments hitting on one piece or the other. Then comments to the comments – giving people the perception that there are two types of people: the high and mighty moral bunch and the bunch that supports what these folks were arrested for as acceptable and fine for everyone to live with. Neither is the case.

    The heartache and loneliness of the widowed man consuming him to the point he felt he had to do this. The heartache and loneliness of the half ton man thinking this was the only way. I feel a great deal of compassion for what they must have been going through. It is sad that they didn’t know all of their options. I wish they had more self-esteem. Unfortunately, they made a bad choice. Thankfully, they didn’t get far down that road. Things could have gotten so much worse for them.

    The 18 year old girl brought down here to be prostituted… what was it that she needed so badly that she would agree to travel so far to have sex with someone she’s never met and could give her any number of diseases or an unexpected child? Does she have a child? Is she homeless? Is she hooked on drugs? How many times has she been raped for the promise of money or drugs that she didn’t get? How many times has she been beaten into submission to this lifestyle? How sad is it to be owned like this? What would you feel if this were your daughter? What would you do?

    The man or woman who turns to prostitution because it’s less intimidating than working on his/her sex life at home only to be infected with hepatitis or HIV and share that at home. What then for that family?

    The man who brought the 18 year old girl down here for the purpose of prostituting her…. How many other girls has he done this to? What is he bribing them with? How young is the youngest girl? Did he beat them and rape them? Has he killed anyone? Is that what will happen as this lifestyle evolves for him? Will one of these girls go missing and never be found? Is this how your daughter’s life will end?

    What makes a person think there’s no hope and these are the only choices?

    It is the right thing for the law to step in. Realizing there are many crimes being committed and not resolved, beating up the officers that are doing a good job isn’t the answer to solving the other crimes.

    It’s not as simple as consenting adults just having fun. That’s the problem.

    Lonely men (or women) who feel this is the only answer become entangled in the much greater problem. A woman desperate for drug money meets him and gets her money. They both leave happy. He returns or she returns. It grows. Next thing you know, the price is higher…riskier but now these men are feeling an attachment they don’t want to let go of. Or, they meet up with a different one. Again, desperation leads them to another bad choice. Some of these men are robbed. Some of these men’s families and neighbors are robbed. Some become fathers of infants with drug addiction or alcohol syndrome. Some live with the silent guilt that the money or drugs they gave the other person resulted in the overdose and death of that person. Some live with the silent shame that the drugs or money they supplied that person with resulted in the horrific accident that killed innocent people… innocent children. Some of these men start supplying pills. Some start trying drugs with the partner. Some get hooked on drugs themselves. Some get beaten and killed. The police officers who caught them, caught them in time to save them. There is hope for them. They won’t serve out sentences in prison. They will go free in this world to make choices all over again. With the love and support of the people who truly know them, they can be helped.

    Conversely, there’s the polar opposite caught up in this web as well. The ones who prey on young boys and girls. Only, it’s not candy they are being bribed with. It’s far worse. Some are being abducted, beaten, introduced to addiction and prostitution. Some are trapped and ashamed. Some die. Some are never seen again. Some have drug addicted children. Some neglect their children and lose them in various terrible ways. When it’s profitable, it worsens.

    There’s the destroyed families and homes. Careers destroyed. Parents unable to support themselves and their children. Children living in shame of their parents. Children losing their parents. People forced to start over. People infected with disease collaterally. The medical expenses. The assistance. The lack of it. The family members killed because that $20 spent on fun bought just enough heroin for someone that they drove into that family head on. The son or daughter buried because they couldn’t afford to buy another hit – so they tried huffing and drove into a pole or tree.

    There are thieves. People we love and trust who steal from their own families and friends to find a fix…and those we don’t know at all.

    There are innocent children along for the ride. The babies in the car with mommy or daddy while they are high. The babies in the car with mommy or daddy when they make a buy or sell. The babies left in the car or room when a parent trades sex for drugs. The babies left all alone in their own waste waiting for someone to come feed them or clean them. The babies who find the drugs or needles. The toddlers that have seen sex in trade and think it’s acceptable when it happens to them.

    There’s death. So much of it. So many different ways. If we could remove one piece of the puzzle and save a life – shouldn’t we at least try?

    There’s a population of victims and people around them that have had enough. Enough dragging our children into the world of addiction and crime to support the addiction. Enough stealing the things people are working hard for in order to support a few hours of being high. Enough losing our children to drug overdoses. Enough killing. Enough driving into our innocent families on the road. Enough manipulating our lonely friends and family members into a life of crime and devastation. Enough looking the other way. Enough dismissing all of it as fun until it hits you and you alone. Care enough to be a part of the solution or at least to thank the people who are at least trying to be a part of the solution.

      Why cant people just stop and think before they do something? I did that yesterday. I was tired of siytting at a red light, and considered running it. Then I thought, “No, thats a gainst the law”. That was good enough for me. Its really simple actually. “Hmmmmm, I could sell my ass for rent money….. No, thats illegal, I will work hard and do it the right way!” “Hmmmm, I sure am horny, I think I will go get a hooker! Nope, thats illegal, I’m just gonna stay home and jack it to legal internet porn! Yay porn! Then I wont go to jail!!”

    I was a cop. Cop’s do make mistakes. I tried very hard not to but I am human, as well as imperfect, just like you. I was also wrongfully arrested for driving on a suspended license and spent the night in jail, right here in good ole Maryland. The Maryland MVA made a mistake and listed my privileges as suspended even though they were not. All of you that have already condemned these fellow human beings for terrible crimes, that you have no clue if they actually committed or not, should be ashamed of yourselves. I was in the Untied States Marine Corps as well. I joined to defend the country and our Constitution, innocent until proven guilty, remember?

Everybody acts like it was a minor he was trying to pick up. Big deal he was try to have some fun. They are all consenting adults. Don’t cops have better things to do. Like look for child molesters. Not grown male and females trying to have fun. I don’t look down at all on my neighbor. He lost his wife a year or two ago. Pretty sure he is trying to find compassion and attention. Don’t judge unless you know him personally.

    Shame on all of you commending the police for this. The government is squandering your money on persecuting things which should not even be illegal. Oh no, people who are willing to pay for sex. Certainly that has not been going on since the dawn of time, how will we ever stop this terrible crime against humanity? Oh no, sometimes people do drugs! We must punish this bold affront to God with righteous cruelty! Seriously, use some basic critical thinking skills. Just a bunch of crooked cops trying to justify their salaries. Where is the justice against war criminals, financial criminals, lying politicians? There doesn’t even need to be, as long as those in power can continue to distract you all by waging war on the lower class. Anyone who actually believes they are any safer because of policies like this is a credulous fool.

      “Anonymous”, are you really dumb enough to think that they are only proseciting these dirt bags? I think they more than justified their salaries. Its illegal, they broke the law, they got caught. Get over it. You seem pretty upset about it, was your best girl on the hit list? Were YOU one of the dirt bags on here? How about you dont tell the police which crimes to investigate, and maybe they wont tell you how to assemble a Big Mac.
