    From the article: "An undercover officer responded to ads for escorts in East Meadow and discussed with a woman on the phone the cost for sexual services. They made a date to meet at the motel."
    Only one I know of actually in East Meadow is the one on the Turnpike right across from the park.

    I am actually kind of curious what motels on Long Island he used so I know to avoid them , with all the talk about Bethpage I was wondering if anyone knew anything ?

    The REAL story here is his arrest for not leaving his seat at a METS game.

    The photograph of the estranged wife has no business being printed in the paper. She is his estranged wife.
    def: estranged - no longer involved or connected with something

    Maybe the News editor's mindset was to contrast the behavior of the busted cop vs. that of his estranged decorated cop wife.

    The Daily News has shown what a total sleazebag rag it is - there is simply no legitimate newsworthy reason to provide details of the guy's estranged wife and to top it off even lower to show the photo of his wife receiving her award for that she earned in performance of her job.

    The editor that allowed this in the article has to be a total sleaze bag with zero journalistic values.

    Using a page from the Daily News to pick up after some dog shit on the ground, IMHO is an insult to the dog shit.

    This version of the story is even more detailed, with info about the Long Island connection and photos of him and his estranged wife.

    The reason is because people are cheating the government out of their licencing fees and they want their cut. NYS licensing fees have gone up enormously over the past 2 decades because, like traffic/parking tickets the government now views them as a revenue source rather than a penalty.

    Yes, this is how it works in most instances for non violent crimes (and sometimes even violent crimes if they don't have a strong enough case). The reason they made the unlawful practice penalty so high is because of the difficulty of actually prosecuting them for what they are really doing. There is no valid reason the penalty is that high other than convenience.

    From what I have read in follow-up to the unlicensed practice felony charge is the girls get a public defender or some $500 legal wonder, plead down to something like disorderly conduct, pay a fine and are told that the penalty will be much more severe is they are caught doing the same thing again.

    That was always foolish, I thought (but romantic)
    lol

    I think we have lost our collective common sense
    Priorities are out of wack by such a wide margin that it boggles the mind
    Taxes on long island are nuts
    Getting nickle and dimed to oblivion
    They get us coming and going
    Death by a thousand cuts

    Free country - wtf happened
    All these agencies were supposed to serve us, the citizens.
    Instead, they bleed us dry in a million ways.

    Anyway, let's hope they legalize it. If weed is now legal due to medical reasons, this should be next.
    After all, nothing is better for you physically mentally and emotionally, and maybe even spiritually, than sex.

    Dare to dream.

    What happened to the excuse/reason that supposedly legally protected them - It's bodywork, not massage ???

    Hardly a hell hole and drug haven at all. But whatever. Its obvious they're going for easy convictions, not just busts. Code violations and unlicensed practitioners are open and shut cases. Either you're licensed or you're not. But maybe that's too nuanced for some people to understand.

    The fence and tree stuff is usually from the town code enforcement guys. I've gotten a few of them. Usually I promise to never do it again and I walk with no fine.
