    Right now these are just allegations but I agree that the police should do a thorough job to determine who frequents this establishment and alsobse if these women are victims. They should also see where the folks that frequent this place reside, to see if people come from outside that community, or from within.

    Exactly. Everybody has jokes, but trafficking is all over America.

    I hope the police do a thorough job of questioning the women. They may find that they are actually enslaved. I hope they contact the Salvation Army's ProjectFIGHT to learn more.
