LE should never convict somebody without a trial and that's exactly what these Arizona cops are doing. I guess they don't have bigger problems to deal with so they resort to (what should be illegal) harassment. If it's not illegal, it's certainly immoral to convict somebody in public when they could easily be totally innocent.
This week in serious civil-liberties violations in the name of stopping sex, the city of Tucson, Arizona, has released information on hundreds of people with "ties" to suspected sex workers. The move is part of a years-long investigation into a handful of massage parlors that may offer more than just muscle-pain relief. Obviously, such nefarious criminal activity (hand jobs—for money? the horror!) warrants extreme measures, which is why Tucson cops couldn't just stop after raiding the six massage parlors in January and seizing the owners' assets. Now the department has publicized the names of all the phone contacts stored in 15 cellphones seized during the raids.

Meanwhile, two Tucson police officers have resigned and five more are on leave due to suspected involvement with the massage parlors. The names of the officers won't be released until a full investigation and appeals process has been resolved, Villaseñor reported in June.
So, I guess it's OK to publish the names of people on these massage parlor cell phones but it's NOT OK to publish those names if they are cops.

Double standard?

I agree that is wrong of them, especially if they won't release the names of the officers yet will release the names of everyone else. That is a double standard as well.

A 55 year old father with 3 kids can be on our prime time tv turning into a mom but a man can't get a little rub & tug relieve in his own privacy... It depends what day of the week it is I suppose.
