    Okay, so this Zumba instructor who was working as a prostitute in the back and secretly filming the encounters... A list of twenty-one of the male clients has been made public. Some people are upset by this because of how it might hurt the families, So my question is, do you have an opinion on this? Should all charges be made public? I know at least around here, every ill-timed fart is published in the newspapers, so this information would be as well.

    I personally don't think publishing the list of names is necessary. In an area like you've described the names would get around anyway. As long as everyone is punished properly for their involvement, I see no reason for it.

    I think the families deserve to know. ''Hurt the families'' psssh! Those cheating husbands hurt their own families!

    It's a shame it has to go in the paper, but since she got in trouble for prostituting, they should get in trouble for buying protitution.

    The familes may deserve to know. They don't deserve to have their family humiliated and talked about in the community because of publication in the paper.

    Every crime is reported in our paper and these should be too.

    As they say, actions done immorally in the dark will eventually come to the light (or something similar to that). I completely agree that those in the wrong need to be humiliated and for those innocent individuals who are connected to these unscrupulous people, I guess that's the unfortunate reality of life. Let's say I was married & my husband was involved in some kind of prostituation ring, for example. I'd want him to be humiliated. the SOB deservesit! I'd just get divorced & away from him as quickly as possible!

    This is Portland. Unless there were underage (or prominent) people involved on either side of the equation, I can't imagine our Police Department spending a lot of time or money on this.

    While I'm not convinced that prostitution should be a crime, I do think that "johns" should be outed, just as the prostitutes (always) are.

    But then again, if paying for sex wasn't a crime, then it wouldn't matter.

    At my age and disability they could "out me" anytime I'd call it a badge of ........ er ..... dang .... , what was I saying?

    All kidding a side there are two tacks that can be taken:
    one the johns are breaking the law they should face the music
    Two If the John is savable (having a rude awakening that sets him on the straight and narrow) he should be "spanked" and sent home and told never to do it again! Make it a deep dark secret! Let his conscience punish him.......!!!!!!!!! BUT men who do this are lower than a dog and that is a insult to dogs

    They should be punished, and their families need to know, but publicly humiliate them? I don't care how those men feel, but what about their families? their kids would go to school the next day and get picked on because daddy is a moron? I don't think that's the answer.

    Publcly humiliating people in a victimless crime is preposterous. I know a guy who got busted in a soliciting gay sex in a public bathroom scheme. They published all the guys faces on the front page of the local paper. It's not right.

    They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Those men and that woman broke the law. Their spousess and kids and parents and siblings did not.

    I cannot imagine being the 12 or 13 year old kid, having to face my middle school friends, knowing they had seen my mom or dad's photo in the paper after facing such charges.

    I think they should be outed publicly just because it seems like all criminals in that area are outed. I think the big problem is that the newspaper is not allowed to print their ages and addresses so people with the same name as the "Johns" have been having to explain to their families that they did not participate in the Zumbatiution (thanks for the new term Irishdave, lol).

    I agree that publicly humiliating them is unnecessary because the damage to the kids is heartbreaking.

    I personally don't think prostitution should be illegal. Victimless crime.

    It has happened NUMEROUS times during my teaching career that a student's parent was not just in the police logs in our paper, but on the front page. I am sure the children were heartbroken, humilated, hurt, and devastated. Should all crimes no longer be reported?

    It's not printed in my city but I guess if people are still committed crimes even though they know it will be in the newspaper shows it is not a deterrent.

    I don't think it's meant to be a deterrent. I always thought it was to keep citizens informed about the crimes happening in their communities so they could make decisions accordingly.

    We get weekly updates on crimes in each area of the city; such as, car break-ins, business break-ins, home break-ins, etc... People who have warrants do get to be in the newspaper though, but they only choose 3 a day.
