    Sounds like you can't count. There are certainly a good amount of repeat clients that go to this place. Mr Kraft himself is one of them.

    the state attorney seemed to be really lapping it up today. But I still liked him.

    Kraft is probably like, really, there going to turn this into human trafficking. That's some misrepresentation on purpose, as that should have no bearing on Kraft except for the added bad publicity. Someone will likely get hit with trafficking, but it won't be Kraft.

    Unless cash was exchanged in the video, I'm not sure how the video really hurts him. It's just another piece of evidence, and I assure none of us wants to see it.

    It's funny they are calling it a slap on the wrist for Kraft, because that probably cost $2 extra.

    And yes, he's probably done this before. Although this could be as simple as his friends paying for a handy to get over missing his wife. That would be believable.

    I agree , this is really not that bad in the public eye.

    He's not peeing on 12 year olds
    or he's not faking an assault by white supremacists at subway at 2am

    If the women weren't forced to be there, free Bob and give him a $118 spa gift certificate.

    You are completely wrong (and nonsensical), as usual.

    The state attorney admitted he used press conference and the Kraft case to spotlight human trafficking yesterday. So it appears you're wrong as usual. This is exactly what they are trained to do. And he did it.

    A crime is still a crime. And I'm pretty sure the perception on human trafficking/prostitution is more ergernious than Faking an assault. "Not that bad?" Idk how one could think that.

    In my opinion the stigma for prostitution or human trafficking is a lot worse than crying wolf via staging an attack.

    Of course any lewd or inappropriate action towards a minor probabaly trumps most crimes beside murder.

    A crime is a crime? shoplifting vs murder

    R Kelly and Jessie Smollett are facing federal court and could be in jail for many years

    Kraft is charged with a misdemeanor

    He'll probably plea down to a small fine, feign ignorance of human trafficking at these spas, and donate a few million towards non-profits aimed to stop human trafficking.

    He's only been charged with 2 misdemeanors. He doesn't have to feign ignorance. Even the maximum fine would be nothing to him.

    This.

    Criminally it is minimal. The possible punishment from the NFL and the humiliation are far worse than any charges.

    You would be surprised.

    The super rich eat fast food from time to time and some of them visit a spa or make questionable and risky choices sexually.

    It's mostly for PR from the NFL.

    Investigations like this are not about the johns, they're out to bust the people who run these businesses and shut them down.

    Busting the customers is just law enforcement's way of trying to curb demand.

    Yeah.... she isn't likely the true founder, she is the face for someone else. She isn't the one that gets the girls over here.
