Wow

Nice to see the Brunswick Co Sheriffs office worried about a few people involved in the worlds oldest profession meanwhile plenty of violent crimes go unpunished and unsolved, why werent they out looking to figure out who murdered that poor football player. Who gives a crap if somebody wants to pay to get laid honestly.. While I dont agree with the whole thing for my own reasons Im sick and tired of the government deciding what 2 consenting adults decide to do in the privacy of their own home/hotel room. This ranks up there with the nannystate bullcrap that continues to go on on all levels of government.. Prime example is this along with the DOJ raid on the violent criminals known as online poker sites. Really?? Who cares?? Besides Prohibition doesnt work we figured this out 80 yrs ago and yet moralistic dipsticks continue to dictate what I should or shouldnt be able to do or watch on TV (This is the only area nearby where I cant even watch Poker After Dark on NBC but yet its available on WITN 7 in Eastern NC, and WMBF in Myrtle Beach I mean seriously Ill bet WECT would get better ratings at 2am for PAD then they do for there idiotic Infomericals that they insist on running instead of National NBC Feed). Ugh What happened to individual liberty and responsibility in this country.. We keep shipping it off to let others who claim to know better then us make decisions on what we can or cant do in the privacy of our own homes and people wonder why we are in the mess we are in because we let the big government types run our lives.

I just found out I have HIV.

I just found out I have HIV. My husband was working in Brunswick Ga (occupation I will not reveal) This upsets me so bad!!! I don't know what to do.

INFECTION, DISEASE!!!

Perhaps you are unaware of HIV running rampant throughout Brunswick County? The government does what it can to prevent a epidemic...

An epidemic of HIV?

The only way that HIV becomes "epidemic" is through misconduct. You can't catch HIV like you can catch a cold.

Keep your pants on outside the home, keep needles out of your arm, and you need not fear HIV.

I repeat my earlier statement - The problem isn't them getting an STD, it's us, as a society, thinking that we are somehow obligated to pay for their treatment.

Renting love

I do not buy or rent love. If I did, the gal in the top right hand photo would get my hundred dollars for three minutes of her time.

Whatever!

I'm so sure these fine individuals don't have any health care insurance. So when they get (or probably already have) STD's, who will foot the bill? We the taxpayers. Yes, this should be illegal. It is a threat to society and everyones health. Yuck. Get your own rocks off.

You're looking at the wrong end

The problem isn't them getting an STD, it's us, as a society, thinking that we are somehow obligated to pay for their treatment.
