Tempe cops pretend to be horny teenagers who want sex from older men!!!!
Remember in the last post when I told you a number of police departments in Arizona have cops who sit around on the internet all day pretending to be horny 14 year olds who want to have sex with older men.
I said some of those police departments were the Tempe Police, the Chandler Police, the Phoenix Police and the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.
Well gee, the very next article I found in the Arizona Republic is about some Tempe cops who made a number of arrests by pretending to be hot horny 14 year olds who want to have sex with older men.
Well, OK, I was wrong about the 14 year old girls. In this case the Tempe Police officers were pretending to be horny 15, 16 and 17 year old girls who want to have sex with older men.
Jesus, don't these police officers have any real criminals to hunt down???? Real criminals that hurt people like robbers, muggers and burglars!!!! Not victimless crimes like smoking marijuana or prostitution.
Tempe underage prostitution sting yields 30 arrests

Tempe police arrested 30 suspects last week in a prostitution investigation aimed at johns and pimps who were looking to sexually victimize underaged girls.
Tempe Police Chief Tom Ryff said Friday that police around the Valley and state are making a regional effort to crackdown on sex trafficking and sex slavery, using a new state law that increases penalties. He said Tempe police have assisted in similar Maricopa County Sheriff's Office and Yavapai County Sheriff's Office sting investigations.
House Bill 2454 increases the penalty for engaging in child prostitution to a class two felony from a class six felony. It also addresses human trafficking for sex by creating an aggravating factor for a longer sentence if the defendant recruits a victim from shelters designed for runaway youth, for foster children or victims of domestic violence.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed the new law, which also closes loopholes that sometimes resulted in lighter punishments, on Tuesday.
"We are the first line of defense for these young ladies," Ryff said.
"What we are talking about is the vulnerablility of our youth being exploited."
Detectives created a page on a website to lure men who were after young girls.
Female detectives dressed as young girls
and met the men at hotel rooms on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of last week, said Lt. Mike Pooley, a police spokesman.
"It's like any undercover operation. The job of the detective is to play that role," Pooley said. "Part of the dialogue was to make sure they knew" the detectives were representing themselves as 15, 16 and 17 year old girls.
Pooley said the men were not only looking for sex acts, but to recruit underaged girls as their pimps. In some cases, suspects were looking to exchange drugs for sex, as well as cash.
"It's a whole world the average person doesn't understand," Pooley said.
Ryff said the old days of prostitutes flaunting themselves in provocative attire on street corners are over and that prostitution is now an Internet-based crime. He said police have to adapt their tactics to keep up with the criminals.
"Now, with the Internet, it's much easier and the target audience is much greater," Ryff said.
Ryff said it was obvious from the range of sexually-deviant behavior exhibited by the suspects that there is a high level of demand for underaged girls and that the problem is pervasive.
He said the problem is everywhere and not particularly acute in any Valley city.
"It's a response to the fact that we knew there is a significant problem with sex trafficking concerning minor children," Ryff said.
