I never know why prostitution is illegal in some states and legal in some states. I am not an ignorant person or an idiot but I need help. The question is....How come there are different laws for different states? If we are UNITED STATES and form a country which we love, why certain laws change regarding states?

Sex is legal.
Selling things is legal.

So why is selling sex illegal?
Don't women have the right to choose how to use their bodies?

Absurd. The hookers are disease bombs. Lock them up and you take away the customers. You mean its better to lock up the customners then simply close the store? Also test these pigs for the aids virus. If they have it upgrade the charges to attempted manslaughter. I dont appreciate the cops disguises the best looking woman they have availble and have her shaking her booty on the highway to entice horny guys to solicite them. Cant they find better things to do with the taxpayers money. Like find criminals instead of inventing them? At double overtime? I get in a car and start in Patchogue and go out as far as Eastport and I could lock up all 12 whores who are hooking on the south shore. But no. In an attempt to justify their existance they entrap people. One day some lawyer with a brain is going to bring up this point. Their client did not patronize a prostitute. He patronized a cop.

I wouldnt mind seeing it legalized here in NY, but would be impossible to regulate. You would have 10+ illegal asian women using the same info and there you would have disease spreading rampant.

Let a guy get his rox off and pay rather than hunt and rape someone or even go to a bar and ruffy up someone.

Suffolk cops are cowards. They would rather arrest the unarmed for victim-less crimes than go after armed rapists and muggers. While this sting was ongoing, most likely a half dozen women were raped in their homes.

I agree with legalized prostitution. Make them girls pay taxes just like us working folks do. Set it up so they are regularly tested for diseases and drugs and if they test positive, put them out of commission. Teach them the importance of practicing safe sex (and no, abstaining in this case sort of defeats the purpose)- they are to only accept clients with the prior agreement that a condom is to be use for all activities.

I also agree with all the above statements- the problem is not the prospective Johns- they were paying consumers. If spending their money on a night of unattached fun with a lady is what they want, then so be it- they earned it. And let's face it, it's better that they are looking to pay for it than if they were to forcibly take it from a random woman... Which seems to be a huge issue in the Mastic/Shirley area; according to all the Megan's Law notices I find in my mailbox.

Well, thank you Newsday for informing us that our hard earned tax money that is used to put prospective police officers through the academy has resulted in playing dress up with a lovely female officer to entrap men looking to pay for sex. I feel safer knowing that those guys were plucked off the streets, instead of the gangs patrolling Neighborhood Road and the sex offenders piled three high in a single home are happily co-existing until one of the bunch decides to get the itch to shop around for a victim.

It's nice to see that Suffolk PD has made our concerns theirs as well.

I think that this is a victimless crime since there are two adults consenting to "do the dirty thing". Let them do their own thing as long as it isn't near a school. And as long as the soliciting isn't in a residential area. Let them hang out in the commercial areas after the places close up. Like warehouse areas or the city dump. I think we have real crime to be concerned about. Like sickos beheading their victims.

Prostitution should be legalized in New York, and that includes Long Island. This way they can regulate the industry by making sure the people who pay for the sex are wearing condoms to prevent the spread of AIDS and STD's.
I agree with the person who stated that the Suffolk cop disguising herself as a prostitute is a waste of our taxpayer's money! So I say, "legalize the oldest profession in this world now so that our money is not going to waste, and so that the PD can catch the real criminals instead!"

I agree that cops have better things to do than entrap citizens, but my question is.....why bother?
Does ANYONE think that any of these people will be prosecuted? They will have their charges plea'd down to traffic tickets, as the Suffolk County DA's office seems to be allergic to courtrooms. The cops lock em up, and the DA's let em go.
And the lawyers get paid!

I thought this was a free country, guess I was wrong. Why is prostitution illegal in the first place? Legalize it and tax the hell out of it and require the prostitutes to be tested for diseases. We would have balanced budgets and less sexually transmitted diseases, it is a win win scenario.

I mean really, don't the police have anything better to do?

Man made drugs ( like made in labs) are legal and ok to sell. Natural stuff grown from nature is illegal. Go figure.. It's all about the $$$$. So you big shot politicians. FIGURE IT OUT Look how much money your losing.

You stupid bastard. More people are killed over drugs than any other reason in this country. More lives have been ruined with drugs and our jails exploding with crack heads and addicts who commit the most hideous crimes imaginable to get their high. Many people, like yourself, have fried their brains with drugs than any other two things combined. If it were up to me I would not hesitate to execute every drug pusher in America. Crack pushers, heroin pushers, coke pushers. Like the man said, "I see alot of people going round with tombstones in thier eyes. God Dam, God Dam, The Pusher". Why don't you 86 and make the world a better place? Youre wasting all that oxegeon that humans need to breathe. You are a total F-N imbecile. You must be putting me on or are an abortion that lived.

Selling sex is illegal because studies show that it usually isn't done so hookers can send their offspring to Harvard or Yale. Prostitutes buy drugs with their money. Women that need to buy food or clothes get legal jobs.
I have a daughter and would never want her to think that providing sex for money was a legitimate business venture. Bravo to the SCPD for their sting operations.
