There is really not a reason that I can grip on. Pay what you owe.
This Daily News story is not a story about prostitution. Okay, this is a story about prostitution, but not the reasons that you think. I am pro-choice. If a woman (or a man) wants to sell a commodity (their body) to a buyer (john, or trick) at an agreed upon price, that is just capitalism. I know that people will use the child sex slave scandals as a reason to disagree with prostitution, but incorrect usage is not a reason to deny…in theory consenting males and females should be able to enter into an agreement.
Sex is one of the biggest weapons anyone can utilize. How many of you have done something to get into the sheets? How many of us have done something like faked interest in something as an entry to starting a relationship? Yes, some relationships, that are strong, are built on an initial lie. Even for the people of ChristianMingle.com, who just happen to bombard the ESPN airwaves with their commercials.
Really, pay what you owe…
CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA – The Daily News published the first photos of the Colombian call girl whose encounter with a cheapskate Secret Service agent set off the agency’s worst sex scandal.
Dania Suarez, the 24-year-old single mom of a 9-year-old son, has gone into hiding as the scandal mushrooms, according to neighbors.
A friend stopped by late Wednesday to pick up her dog, a pug named Valentino, they said.
Suarez, originally from the island of San Andres, is a quiet tenant who rents a small apartment in a hacienda-style home for about $600 a month, neighbors said.
They often saw her go out late and come home at dawn, dangling her high heels in her hand.
“She never told us what she did for a living but it was obvious,” said Maria Quintero, 31, who lives on the first floor of the three story white building.
“She was home all day and left late at night looking very nice,” Quintero said.
So, they knew what she did, but it was not a problem for them. All seemingly agreed that she was a good mother, which must be hard, if you are having a kid at fifteen.
“I asked her if she worked, she said no. I asked her if her boyfriend helped her, she said no. Then it hit me.”
Another neighbor, Maria Estela Cubides, 45, said Suarez seemed to have a glamorous life out on the town, but kept to herself at home.
“She always left late at night. She traveled a lot, to fancy destinations,” Cubides said. “She never brought guys home. She kept to herself. I’m surprised she did all that noise to get her money. She’s not that kind of person.”
Another neighbor, Dona Betty, said Suarez told people she was a dancer.
“She showed up early in the morning, with her heels on her hands,” she said. “We suspected, but she keeps to herself. She is a good mother.”
Here is where the problem lies. Prostitution is legal in Columbia, it is a business transaction. PAY WHAT YOU OWE!
Prostitution is legal in Colombia, and escorts, hookers and streetwalkers crowd the streets of the tourist districts.
Suarez has said she was a “high class” escort who made $800 – 1.4 million pesos – a night to dress well and provide sparkling company as well as have sex.
The average Colombian household earns $287 a month.
Eleven Secret Service agents and nine military servicemen are under investigation for hiring 20 or 21 hookers in Cartagena last week when they were supposed to be preparing for President Obama’s April 13 arrival at a regional summit.
Suarez was one of the girls brought back to the posh Hotel Caribe to party with the G-men on the night of April 11.
According to the story Suarez has told friends and the press, the still-unnamed agent kicked her out of his room the next morning with only $28 in cab fare.
She caused a ruckus in the hallway, demanding her full payment, while the agent remained locked in the locked hotel room and wouldn’t come out.
Dude, just pay her. Just pay her and we never hear about this, you get to keep your job and you don’t hurt the president. She did her part, met her terms in the contract. Being too drunk is not an excuse. This is also the reason to get the money first, because of fools like this.
Soon Cartagena cops got involved and while the payment dispute was ultimately settled by a whip-round among some of the other Secret Service agents, word reached the US Embassy.The men were ordered home, put on leave and stripped of their security clearances.
Three Secret Service agents, including two supervisors, were ousted Wednesday.
CBS News named two of the three Thursday: Greg Stokes, a supervisor who handled the bomb sniffing dogs, was fired. He is fighting to keep his job, exercising his option to appeal the firing.
More were on the verge of being canned.“Several more people will be pushed out either today or tomorrow,” Rep. Peter King (D-NY) said Thursday.
Two secret service agents have been given polygraphs and more are expected, two sources said.
ABC News reported that the men had booked a party space at the hotel expecting a bash for about 30 people.
“That allegation is coming from the media, but it is being checked out,” King said.
White House officials have said the president’s security was not compromised but investigators are looking into whether the agents left sensitive papers in their rooms where the hookers could have had access to them.
In addition, people on scene said the unnamed agent was still roaring drunk the next morning, when he got into the dispute with Suarez, and that could have affected his job performance.

Happy Non denomination holidays. As Bing Crosby once sang, I’m dreaming of a White Christmas, but he certainly did not mean it this way…
I wasn’t dreaming of a white Christmas, but reading this made me think of brotherly love and I came to the realizaation that I don’t love my brother this much…
Man Dies After Eating Ounce of Cocaine Out Of Brother’s Butt
thesmokinggun.comBy JULIA JACOBOpix11.com | @wpix9:41 p.m. EST, December 20, 2011SOUTH CAROLINA (PIX11)—After eating an ounce of cocaine hidden in his brother’s buttocks, a South Carolina man died soon after.Deangelo Mitchell, 23, and his brother Wayne, 20, were in the back of a North Charleston Police Department cruiser on Nov. 30. The duo was being transported to jail when they began whispering about narcotics hidden inside the older sibling.
The Mitchells were arrested when a police officer found three small bags of cocaine underneath a rear seat of their 2001Chrysler. It is evident in video footage that Deangelo Mitchell encouraged his younger brother to ingest the cocaine. The older Mitchell has a lengthy record and was concerned that he could face life in prison if convicted of a narcotics charge. “I can’t get no more strikes,” he told his brother.
He further directed his brother to “Eat that s***” and “Chew that s***.”
In the footage, Wayne Mitchell can be seen, in handcuffs, reaching back to retrieve the cocaine from his brother. He then drops his head while he eats the cocaine.
Wayne Mitchell soon after began convulsing and bleeding from his mouth. “White powder residue” was found on the rear seat of the police cruiser, cops noted. Deangelo later said “he believed his brother swallowed an ounce of cocaine.”
Wayne Mitchell died within an hour of ingesting the cocaine.
Deangelo Mitchell was initially charged with narcotics trafficking and was released from custody after posting $50,000 bond. But after a review of the police footage, authorities rearrested him Tuesday, charging him with involuntary manslaughter in connection with his brother’s death.

Now, if it stopped before the grocery store, you would have simply thought that I was talking about a porn shoot, or maybe giving you too much information about my private life. But, this happened in public. At a grocery store. What was this dude thinking?
GAITHERSBURG, Md – As a woman was leaving a Giant store a man sprayed liquid on her back. An examination revealed the liquid was human semen.
It happened at the Giant store located at 842 Muddy Branch Road on July 15, 2010.
Thanks for the investigative reporting. I will not be going to that store…
Witnesses saw the man get into a gray vehicle and drive away.
On July 29, 2010, the Gaithersburg Police Investigative Section arrested 28-year-old Michael Wayne Edwards, Jr. of the 17000 block of Downing Street in Gaithersburg. Edwards was charged with second degree assault with additional charges forthcoming.
After his arrest and interview it was learned that there are additional unidentified victims. If you believe you have been a victim of such a crime and have seen Edwards please contact Detective Corporal Word at 301-258-6400.
An arrest warrant was obtained for Edwards. Edwards was released on a $4,000 bond.
Well, at least he is not totally shiftless, as he had enough money(or friends and family) to bond him out on the ten percent tip.

I certainly hope so. The time of prison might have shown him that playtime is over…
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio State University says former football star Maurice Clarett has been granted re-entry to pursue his degree after he spent more than three years in prison.
Ohio State spokesman Jim Lynch says in a statement that Clarett started classes on Monday after he was readmitted by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled.
Clarett says in a statement that it is a “surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State” and that he doesn’t want to be a “distraction or nuisance” to the football team or other students.
Clarett led the Buckeyes to the 2002 national championship in his only college season. He pleaded guilty in 2006 to aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon, and served 3½ years in a Toledo prison, where he took college-credit courses.
Maybe he got some credits in prison…I hope him good luck and that he truly learned from this lesson. The education can take him farther than football…
The mention of sex parties and prison usually turn my stomach, because I think of the scene in American Me. (click to watch what I mean)
I never want to go to prison. But, if I had to go, I want to go to this place…
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) – The New York State Commission of Correction says top officials and staff were irresponsible when they authorized and failed to supervise a party at a youth prison where some violent offenders had sex with dates.
The commission faults the Office of Children and Family Services for directing the Goshen Secure Center in the Hudson Valley to hold the December party for four offenders as a reward for good behavior. They ranged in age from 17 to 20, three doing time for murder and one for armed robbery.
The commission says officials knew little about the four female guests, ranging from 16 to 27, who were driven from Albany and New York City by state workers in state vehicles.
OCFS says it has stopped social events and disciplined seven of its staff.
Now, I make light of this, but the real message is that prison is not the place to be for anyone.
Columbian Police Find World Cup MADE OF Cocaine! In other news, Maradona is distraught at not winning…is this why is became a coach?
July 6, 2010
Now I understand why Maradonna was so upset and why he took the job as coach in the first place.
The Colombian soccer team didn’t make the World Cup, but the country’s police made a great save to intercept a replica tournament trophy made entirely out of cocaine.
The painstakingly engraved statue was painted gold with green stripes on the base to match the real trophy. It was bound, along with several team jerseys packed in the box, for an address in Madrid when it was intercepted in a warehouse inside the airport.
Colombian National Police said the “bad condition” of the gold paint on the trophy’s surface is what tipped them off.
The real World Cup trophy is almost as valuable — cast in solid 18-carat gold — but weighs about ten pounds less.
You have to applaud the creativity of the drug smugglers. Necessity is the mother of invention…
Now, just about everyone has gotten into a disagreement with their parents or guardians. It’s natural. You want more freedom, they care about your safety and at times, those things come into conflict. There has been many times when I have been faced with that conflict. I just tried to de-escalate and plan for another time. Aaron Dean does not have the ability to control his urges. I mean, I like cheeseburgers, but not enough to stab anyone over one.
TOLEDO, OH (WTVG) — A Toledo teen is behind bars for allegedly stabbing his mother over a cheeseburger.
The altercation happened at 425 West Bancroft around 1 a.m. Friday morning.
Aaron Dean, 18, is accused of stabbing his mother over the burger.
Detectives say the teen’s mom came home with food for herself. Her son apparently got upset because she didn’t bring him a cheeseburger.
Police say he choked her, grabbed a butcher knife, and stabbed her in the right arm before running away.
We talked with Vergie Dean, Aaron’s mom, today. She told us she grabbed a cheeseburger from Rally’s and headed home.
She says her 6’3″ 300-pound son got upset because she didn’t bring one for him. “He was like ‘Where’s my food at?’ and I’m like ‘I’m not gonna give you anything’ so he smacked my sandwich and he pushed me or something and it escalated from there.”
Aaron allegedly grabbed and choked her. “He had me in the corner. I took a knife and I stabbed him in his finger. He ran in his room and grabbed a big ole butcher knife. He came back and was like ‘You cut me, you cut me.’ He was standing right there. He just took the knife and stuck it in my arm. ”
Detectives took the butcher knife as evidence.
They say Aaron Dean took off after the stabbing. He was arrested a block from his home, on Prescott Street.
His mother blames her son’s behavior on his mental illness. “He’s a paranoid schizophrenic and he ain’t been taking his medicine for one because he flips off. He be good sometime, then he get bad.”
Police charged the teen with felonious assault, false information, and drug abuse.
His mother says her son would rather buy drugs than food. “So to keep him from going in the streets to do the bad things, I give him money everyday.”
She says she doesn’t want him to stay in jail. “It’s not a good place for him there. He need to go to a mental hospital somewhere so he can get his head right because he might want to hurt somebody else on the street.”(Copyright ©2010 WTVG-TV/DT. All Rights Reserved.)
TSA screener Rolando Negrin snaps and gets arrested…Maybe that is another reason full body scanners are a bad idea…
May 7, 2010
Some ideas should never see the light of day. Full Body scanners are one of them. Remember this SNL skit on Bad Idea Jeans? (R.I.P. Phil Hartmann)Vodpod videos no longer available.
For privacy concerns, the full body scanner is the Bad Idea jeans of 2010. I was talking to my father about traveling and we both came to the conclusion that my children will never know the amount of freedom that we had pre-9/11. I can remember making a flight when I was living in St. Paul leaving my house 40 minutes before the flight was scheduled to take off. I made the flight easily and had time to ponder a snack before getting on the plane. Those days of ease and freedom are clearly over and we have the terrorists to thank. Our way of life has been irreparably changed.
Now, with the scanners, TSA agent Rolando Negrin finally had enough.
Airport security guard attacks colleague over ‘manhood’ jokes after walking through hi-tech body scanner
By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 3:18 PM on 7th May 2010Breaking point: Rolando Negrin is accused of assaulting a colleague after enduring relentless jokes about how his manhood looked an an X-ray scanner
An airport security guard allegedly battered a colleague who ridiculed him about the size of his manhood after he walked through a hi-tech body scanner.
Miami-Dade Police say Rolando Negrin snapped because he ‘couldn’t take the jokes anymore’.
During a training session at Miami International Airport, Negrin’s co-workers had noticed his private parts as he walked through a new ‘whole body image’ machine.
The technology – designed to boost security at airports – shows extremely revealing images.
Over the next few days, 44-year-old Negrin was relentlessly ridiculed and lost his temper on May 4, it is claimed.
Maybe it was shrinkage, because he had been in the pool
but, you should never feel the need to fight over that, but the proof was in the pudding. Most people will never know, but with these scanners, you can’t hide anymore. Plus, what was the supervisor looking at? I will let Riley Freeman give my response to that.
Police said Negrin confronted fellow screener Hugo Osorno in an airport car park and repeatedly beat him with a police baton while demanding an apology.
That is gansta. That is some scarface type of street justice that was doled out on Hugo. I guarantee that he will act right from now on.
The Miami incident echoes that of a similar case at Heathrow in March, where an airport worker was disciplined after ‘ogling’ a female colleague who had walked through one of the controversial scanners.
John Laker, 25, was given an official warning over sexual harassment by Heathrow operator BAA.
A police arrest report into the Miami incident said: ‘The X-ray revealed [Negrin’s genitals] and co-workers made fun of him on a daily basis.
‘They say that Negrin confronted Osorno in an airport parking lot after their shift.
Negrin wanted to ‘resolve a problem’, and get Osorno, 34, to ‘finally respect him’, said the report.
He allegedly pulled out a police baton and repeatedly struck Osorno while demanding an apology.
Witnesses told police that Negrin yelled, in Spanish: ‘Get on your knees or I will kill you and you better apologise.’
He was arrested and charged with aggravated battery when he turned up for work the following day.
Negrin has been released on $7,500 bail.
I am sure that it was worth it. If I would a judge, I would have leniency on Negrin. All it takes is one dude to start running his mouth and others think that this type of thing is okay. Keeping with the theme of stun guns, had he had one and shocked him, I would have laughed at Hugo getting a taste of the taser.
Eagle eyes: Airport security staff ‘noticed’ Negrin’s private parts during a training exercise earlier this month (file picture)
Exposed: The revealing full body scans alarm privacy campaigners
Passengers are likely to feel increasingly exposed as more stories emerge of airport staff around the world ‘mocking’ X-ray scanner nudity.
The human X-ray machines produce ‘naked’ images of passengers, enabling security staff to instantly spot any hidden weapons or explosives.
The full body scanners also show up any breast enlargements, false limbs, piercings, and a clear outline of passengers’ private parts.
However fears have been raised that they may not be safe for women in the early stages of pregnancy or children.
What happened to Rolando, will happen to others. The tech has clear advantages, but in the hands of some of the stiffs that they have put in charge is dangerous. They say that they will be well trained, but the training can’t solve for stupidity or perverts.
Privacy campaigners, meanwhile, have warned that other travellers might not want to be scanned because of the graphic nature of the images.
In March two Muslim women have become the first passengers in the UK to refuse to subject themselves to controversial ‘naked’ full body airport scans.
The pair – who security officials insist were selected at random – opted to miss their flight to Pakistan and forfeit tickets worth £400 each rather than be screened.
One of the women refused to go through the full-body scanner at Manchester Airport on religious grounds while her companion also declined for ‘medical reasons’.
The women were travelling together to Islamabad when they were selected to pass through the controversial security screen after checking-in at Terminal Two at the airport.
An estimated 15,000 people have already passed through the scanners in the UK, with the pair the first passengers to refuse a scan.
I am not trying to hide anything on my person when I am going through security. I still think that the privacy concerns are real. I would go through the scanner to avoid missing my flight, but the rights you use to have are now a part of lore of yesteryear.
