    A waste of taxpayer money. This is entrapment. Dont they have something more useful for their police officers to do.

    I say they need to leave the solicitors alone and don't worry about prostituition and people associated with it as we have other issues that they need to be more concerned with. Prostituition is the oldest profession in he world and it will always exist no matter what. I actually think it is entrapment but of course the court system disagrees. What 2 consenting adults do and they don't bother anyone else to me it's there business. I don't agree with it but I don't think it should be a criminal offense.

    If they want to shut down a prostitution ring, they should turn their attention to Craigslist.

    But at least Fayetteville residents can be proud that they have won an All-America City Award!!! After spending taxpayer money to send a large delegation to influence the judges. Not that I am questioning how they influenced the judges.

    Entrepreneurs will find a way to succeed! There are no laws against free samples. By the time one decides if they are really interested they will be more aware of who they are dealing with.

    Good job, that ought to curtail those crimes of violence and keep people employed.

    "That isn't true. He was accepting of the woman, and told her to go and sin no more."

    Why is it the woman's fault? If there is no demand there would be no supply, right? By the way, I am a man. I see the whole thing as a "supply/demand" thing. Eliminate the demand, the supply will dry up (figuratively speaking).

    "In too many cases, a woman can get more time for having sex with a man than someone can get for killing one."

    You can't provide one example. Guarantee it.
