    Robert Kraft Charged in Prostitution Probe

    Weird, he says he's sorry and hopes to make up for it with future actions.....which sounds like a great plan. Then he says everything the police did was wrong and they know it. So, I guess that's the future actions that proves he's sorry

    Similar move to suppress evidence going on with the epstein civil case right now

    I see. So it would be Krafts side admitting only that it's possible that the prosecution has enough evidence to find him guilty. Apparently, it's standard operating procedure for first time offense misdemeanors. Also part of the deal https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/19/prosecutors-offer-to-drop-prostitution-charges-against-robert-kraft.html Seems like a win win

    confusing It's a guilty plea in which you don't admit the criminal act and assert your innocence? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alford_plea

    Seems like a pretty good deal
  7. I removed the conversation about Tyreek Hill. I couldn't split it off into another thread because there were on-topic posts mixed in. I would have had to remove those as well
  8. As I've watched posters freak out here, I've wondered if I'm the only one who remembers that the colts didn't used to do much in free agency. Ballards approach to free agency is really very much like Polians https://fox59.com/2019/03/14/colts-gm-chris-ballard-takes-bill-polian-like-approach-to-building-roster/

    The Miami Herald has been doing an amazing job investigating this BTW, we have this problem in Indiana as well http://youarecurrent.com/2015/02/06/suspect-found-guilty-in-dove-spa-prostitution-trial-in-carmel/ https://www.theindychannel.com/news/local-news/indianapolis/owner-of-indy-massage-parlor-arrested-charged-with-prostitution http://www.dailyjournal.net/2016/10/22/after_massage_parlor_shut_down_what_next/ https://www.wishtv.com/news/crime-watch-8/police-raid-multiple-local-massage-parlors/1064269194 It is flipping everywhere. I met a woman at a summer event who was handing out flyers about human trafficking in Indiana. She said her daughter had been drawn into it via social media.

    I can see that you don't need a jury. I mean there's video tape. No need for anyone else to see it. Judge will know if he's guilty.

    Robert Kraft Charged in Prostitution Probe

    It's not a moral high ground. For me it is outrage that this is happening It's not good for the women It's not good for the country And places like this are not good for relationships between men and women. Same sort of demeaning effect that pornography has. There's just nothing good about it except from the perspective of the operators who are raking in tax free dollars......same as drug dealers. I would be happy to see no more of these 'massage parlors' in any of our communities. They're toxic

    The law has a way of bending to money as in the Jeffery Epstein case. But I think he would need the prosecuting attorneys to be complicit and I don't think these prosecutors will do that. Fingers crossed anyway. There are quite a few wealthy types that got caught up in this.

    I read an article this week about a young tech entrepreneur worth 10 Million who got addicted to a place like this. Said he's paid more than $20K over the past 6 years. He said he chose not to think about who these women were and how they came to be there. Said he knew it likely wasn't good. BUT he became addicted to this 'type' of thing to the point where it's ruined him for real relationships. Said he loved the ego-stoking. I bet that's what happens with men that go to these places. So, it's sad for them too. You are right, I am making an assumption. He knew, he didn't care. Probably cannot prove it as it's just very difficult to prove. Edit: It's my understanding that Kraft is denying any wrong doing whatsoever. Says he did NOT solicit a prostitute. I would imagine that's pretty easy to prove unless they somehow get the tape thrown out of court. https://mynews4.com/news/nation-world/patriots-owner-kraft-denies-charges-of-soliciting-prostitute

    The Patriots Stadium sponsor is Gillette. Gillette recently changed its tagline to, “The Best Man Can Be,” in an effort to represent the brand’s commitment to promoting healthy representations of what masculinity means. There's a petition now to ask Gillette to drop that deal. https://whdh.com/news/thousands-sign-petition-calling-for-gillette-to-drop-stadium-sponsorship-after-kraft-charges/

    I think it's all part of creating plausible deniability for him. He's a guy with options both with women and for massage therapy. He's also not a stupid guy. He doesn't drive across town for no reason. It's more likely than not that he knew what was going on. I don't doubt he'll be able to get out of it. Police have a very hard time proving servitude https://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/crime/article226942349.html Apparently, Flushing NY is the main part of this syndicate. Indeed, there's a New york lawyer defending one of the arrested woman I think what law enforcement did in this case was a good move https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/02/us/massage-parlors-human-trafficking.html This is organized crime. This is corruption. Yet, I'm seeing a lot of headlines like 'punishing Robert Kraft won't end sex trafficking' It's repulsive to see fans and the media turn a blind eye to this. It's willful and not good for the country. This past week I watched a show on the global economy. One episode about corruption talked about this sort of thing happening everywhere. For example Dubai https://qz.com/88278/dubais-towering-skyscrapers-are-built-by-a-horrifically-exploitative-labor-system/ Their point in the end was that the more corrupt a country is, the more the inevitability that its economy would flatline. It's not sustainable. People seeing this sort of thing in the United States and not being concerned are turning a blind eye. People who pump money into it are really willfully blind. If you don't care about the rise in indentured servitude, perhaps you care about the impact it has on the country? I would think that most Americans would care about organized crime and corruption. People are proving me wrong. They don't care. In this case, you're just saying 'they can't prove it' Probably not. I still give props to the way law enforcement tried with this one. It got attention. It needs constant attention. I hope they publicize all men who are busted at these places. Edit: Significant recent increase in sex trafficking in Massachusetts https://littleton.wickedlocal.com/news/20190303/robert-kraft-case-spotlights-sex-trafficking-in-massachusetts

    Yeah the NYPost owner is a friend of his I believe. At least they appear to be so http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Robert+Kraft/Rupert+Murdoch/Philadelphia+Eagles+v+New+England+Patriots/MFaYPMM-R2Z https://www.mediaite.com/online/ex-ny-post-writer-rupert-murdoch-killed-story-on-patriots-owner-robert-krafts-gambling-ties/ Also, none of the other major media outlets carried that particular story. That's why I didn't mention it here. Seems like PR
