It never fails. On any holiday that involves drinking - for example, Halloween,
some genius in Phoenix will have one too many and decide that getting
a prostitute is a good idea. After a quick scan of Craigslist or Backpage,
the inebriated Halloween reveler will make contact with what is likely
an undercover police officer in hopes of having some ill-advised drunken
sex. We all know how this situation will turn out. The drunken guy will
go to a hotel room and get comfortable, only to have the mood (and his
libido) killed by armed police officers storming the room and arresting him.
He is one of the lucky ones. Others will get a real live prostitute who
won't get them arrested, but instead, will be part of a robbery set
up. If the guy is lucky, the only thing he'll lose is his wallet.
In efforts to make sure that everyone has a safe Halloween, here's
some helpful tips and facts about prostitution in Phoenix to help you
enjoy the night:
- When looking at ads on Backpage and Craiglist, if the girl in the picture
is too attractive, she's a cop. In fact, if she has teeth, she's
probably a cop.
- Even a first offense for prostitution carries a mandatory minimum 14-day
- If you don't get arrested by an undercover cop, you have a 60% chance
of getting robbed.
- If you do get arrested, there's a very good chance that your mugshot
will land on the internet.
Trick or treating is about kids, candy, and fun. If you find yourself looking
for love on Halloween night, stay away from internet prostitution or a
hangover will be the least of your problems. For those who don't follow
