The big story from the Florida murder case is that apparently, these "Asian massage parlors" are operating openly as brothels in strip malls all over the country. Are they controlled by Asian gangs? This seems to be a giant criminal enterprise to which everyone, including law-enforcement, is turning a blind eye. What's the matter with everybody? Why are we tolerating this?
"What's the matter with everybody? Why are we tolerating this?" Nothing is the matter with anyone. We're tolerating this for the same reasons we always have. 1. If the women, enterprise and 'everyone' are guilty, it's because men have always wanted sex, and women have always preferred providing it over laboring in coal mines or serving as cannon fodder in some plutocrat's war, as impoverished men must do. 2. If innocent, this is merely part of a bog-standard establishment anti-asian (anti-Chinese) fear-mongering campaign. Same old, same old. Do you imagine you can stamp out all (or even any) of humanity's misdeeds?
If women are doing this willingly, I don't have a problem with it. If they're being trafficked, it should be ruthlessly stamped out.
Oh, come on. This is women being trafficked right out in the open. Next to where you take your kids for karate or ballet classes. I'm amazed the neighborhood hasn't raised Cain about it. Maybe they get shut down and then re-open elsewhere. They probably move the women all around. They may not even speak English. Somebody promised to take them to America and this is how they ended up...trapped in sex slavery. No, that's not OK. Jesus.
Many of these women are being trafficked, and it's being done right out in the open. A massage is not what's being offered
