The same state suffering from senior poverty, meth and opioid addiction, active school shooters and low employment in high paying sectors has chosen to prioritize going after 77 year old billionaires over-paying for hand jobs instead of protecting its citizens from actual real threats and issues.

Kraft has denied any wrongdoing. The allegations are based on secretly recorded VIDEO evidence of a sex act under a warrant issued by a local judge. Wondering what the Supreme court will have to say about this from a privacy standpoint. It doesn't set well with my legal acumen.

Short of RICO act suspects...I don't believe that secretly recorded video in areas where privacy is expected should be admissible in court of law in any circumstance , with the exception of the most heinous wanted violent criminals.

It is safe to say that the Men being charged no matter your moral compass, have zero incentive or motive to be involved in the human trafficking buzz word which keeps getting thrown around in regards to WILLFUL prostitution (which should be legalized) in a pathetic effort of broke municipal PD to get federal funding.

Expound...

After doing much research on my own many Non-profits that work with these Women find that the true rate is 1-5% (DAs seeking tenure will over exagerate and proclaim it's 25% or more) and as an American born citizen you have a 0.0001% chance of encountering any of these individuals. They operate in closed Ethnic networks and do not service outsiders.

None operate storefronts or in plain sight. Billionaires can be stupid but they are the last people who would be nominated or accepted to lead a trafficking group.

Jupiter police have no shame....

He wasn't allegedly charged; he was charged.

First, I think prostitution should be legalized.

Second, the fact that there are other problems in Florida hardly means that every lesser matter should be ignored. Should they stop issuing speeding tickets and enforcing zoning laws ... 'because, meth!'? Please...

Third, the investigation in question wasn't simply about prostitution, Charges filed include human trafficking, money laundering, and racketeering (there's your RICO Act).

Fourth, ethics aside, Kraft is apparently an idiot. Paying $50 for a wet handshake at a skeevy strip mall joint? He could have flown to Vegas on one of his private jets, been chauffeured over the Clark County line (and during this trip, his net worth would have increased by 10x the cost of the jaunt) and done this all legally (and probably under more sanitary conditions, monitored by the state of Nevada). But no, he stops by the Rub & Tug Spa! I wonder what he does when he wants a joint? Make a visit to Krazy 8 or Psycho Ed on the corner?

I'm not surprised that people are making excuses for the star billionaire sports figure. Personally, I have zero sympathy for those who enable human trafficking.

I totally agree with you. These are consensual arrangements by willing parties. "Human trafficking" is exactly as you said, a buzz word, which leads people to believe these are sex workers who were kidnapped or enslaved in some way and being held against their will. I'm not saying that doesn't happen, but it's very rare.

It was a similar deal years ago(also in FL) when an entire team of vice cops caught Pee Wee Herman playing with himself in a porn theatre. It's like, could these resources not be better spent fighting real problems?

Much quicker to just land in Carson City. The houses are about 10 minutes away. Shorter flight, shorter drive. Happier ending.

RICO Act? The feds are gonna go through his finances with a fine tooth comb. I wonder if they'll find any "gifts" given to Roger Goodell.

Kraft "went off the deep end" after his wife died.
"joined at the hip" is not a euphemism in this case.

You have to admire a man that age who was able to split the uprights without deflategate being an issue.

Well, Reno perhaps - there's no airport in Carson City.

Uh huh. Sure.

"Hey, Rog, thanks for that whole deflategate suspension. Aaron Rodgers admitted in an interview to Chris Simms that he likes overinflating balls beyond what is allowed, and that he gets away with doing that whenever he can. Yet you didn't investigate him at all, but you suspended my guy for a quarter of a season. I appreciate that, here's some cash!"

Classic conspiracy theory - makes not one lick of sense!
