An entrapment lawsuit waiting to happen...

Prostitution

From Ars Technica...

According to information provided on their Blogger, Twitter, and Facebook accounts, the PGPD will be documenting the planned takedown with frequent updates during the arrests, tweeting photos and arrestee information. The planned takedown in Maryland will target johns, not prostitutes themselves, and will be set up using online ads, according to the department.

Announcing a bust a week ahead of time, even explaining how you're going to accomplish it, doesn't scream out entrapment in any way. No, not at all...

A quick review of Twitter for the hashtag #PGPDVice will reveal how people really feel about the sting:

Regardless of how you feel about prostitution, this seems like a bit of an overstep for law enforcement.
