Zapruder Analysis: The Conroe Prostitution Ring
I consider myself a fairly worldly fellow. I have a social life, I've traveled to multiple continents, I'm not afraid to try new things. But admittedly, I'm not all that dialed into the prostitution game.
Yes, Conroe has hookers, too.
Oddly enough (and despite what some of you would contend is a miraculous proclamation), I've managed to make it through my entire adult existence without having to pay for intercourse.
Not that there's anything wrong with that! (Other than that it's illegal and, I would assume, if the product were any good, kind of expensive.)
So imagine my surprise when I read this story last night about the police busting a prostitution ring in Conroe.
In case you haven't seen this story, here are the highlights:
Conroe Police Department narcotics investigators teamed up with Montgomery County Precinct 2 Constable's deputies recently to look into prostitution complaints.
The undercover operation resulted in six prostitution arrests March 7-12 in southeast Conroe, according to a Conroe Police Department news release.
Undercover officers posing as "customers" targeted a primarily residential area near South First Street in Conroe, Sgt. Dorcy Riddle, of the Conroe Police Department, said.
Those arrested were Perla Gutierrez, 27, Conroe; Sylvia Hart, 24, Pasadena; Mary Marie Jones, 31, Conroe; Amber Kirkland, 29, Conroe; Christine Smith, 53, Conroe; and Sandy Terwilliger, 24, Conroe.
All six women remained Thursday in the Montgomery County Jail on bail amounts ranging from $500 to $1,000, according to online records.
No further information on the sting was immediately available.
Okay, I have several thoughts on this story, and they are as follows:
