I went to read the article and fully expected it was another one of those "cops on Craig's List" deal. I assumed they were targeting professional escorts that were advertising either on-line or in publications.

 

What really surprised me was that cops were going up to regular guys on the street or in bookstores and propositioning them!! According to the article, some guys were arrested even though they did NOT take the "bait" and agree to exchange money for sex.

 

This is a very alarming trend. Hope it doesn't come to an area near me. Thanks for posting the link.

I find it alarming that in these times the fuzz has the $$$ to waste on such frivolous shit, not to mention tying up the court system.

Walgreen Drug Stores now have all your popular lubes such as WET and condoms on full display in an aisle and you don't have to ask a clerk to unlock a cabinet to browse and select what you want.

It is also very disturbing that this scheme can only work if the cops all agree that they will perjure themselves at trial. If one tells the truth, that the individual was approached and offered money and did not respond, the case would have to be dismissed. Even if the individual agrees, it would be entrapment without proof of a prior inclination. So there must be an agreement that they will all lie under oath. Their supervisors must be in on it. The prosecutor as well?

Even if you know the nuances of the laws of entrapment under New York law, signing off on a guilty plea for disorderly conduct and being immediately released can be a better realistic out come than spending countless hours in Manhattan's notorious "tombs" awaiting arraignment to plead not guilty to greater charge or charges. It's also cheaper. That's the game they're playing.

"The police activity was in response to community complaints of prostitution and other problems at a few locations," and was in no way aimed at the gay community..."

 

It's sad that these so called anonymous "community complaints" always seem to target the gay community... "Community complaints" have closed down gay clubs like Stella's, LaFleur's, Red's, b'boyzz parties, etc.... Yet, the "Gentlemen's clubs" seem to be thriving quite well. Perhaps the reason why the 20C (housed in the VIP Lounge) is still around.

 

From reading these articles, there's no question in my mind that the NYPD has a hidden agenda to close down any place of business that caters to the gay community.

So let me see if I've got this right:

 

A cute, 20-something man offers to pay a 53 year-old man for sex?

 

Yeah, that happens all the time.

 

All us 50-somethings are hustling!

 

Seemingly, I've been making a serious mistake for a long time.
