19 of the 35 are foreign to this country. Are we really being serious on crime? Lets welcome more of the worlds criminals to our loving city, give them their entitlements. I really hate to be so P.C. uncorrect but lets check the crime rate of their countries and see if they have a problem of American citizens committing such crimes.

Posting their pictures is really slezzy slupass this isn't NOLA.

This a way to advertise that you produce revenue other then giving out traffic tickets?

This is just to let us know that murder, rape, robbery and home invasions have been eliminated; allowing the cops to focus on trivial crimes.

Is it time to legalize prostitution?

dick658, that's quick work on your part. How did you find out their nationalities so quickly? Did you just assume they are not Americans by noting that they did not appear to be WASP or of European decent? I'm sure Serpas just told the decoy to seek out 'foreign' guys first since they are such a problem.

These guys know it's illegal. They got caught. They have to suffer the consequences. There ARE other ways to take care of the urge, fellas.

us how to deal with foreign sex problems :)

Sir - If you can't look at those pictures and see that at least over half are hispanic, you need glasses!

"Is it time to legalize prostitution?" Remember this: "a body does not belong to the person inhabiting it. Your body is on loan from God so therefore you cannot sell something you do not own and probably should not rent it out, either.

Ahh - lets take the opportunity to get on our high horse when a publicized crime is committed by someone we don't look like - Wah wah wah

I am not smart enough to know that everyone who I think is of hispanic descent because of a surname is automatically a foreigner, nor is everyone with light skin automatically a citizen. If my recall of American history is correct not all of the territories that became the United States were settled by the English or Dutch, seems like the Spanish and even the French had a big part in it too.

I don't see why we should not publish names and pictures - maybe the embarassment might be a deterrent although it is not highly likely. Of interest to me is it would appear that most of the pictures were made at the scene and in daylight.
