Don't touch the premature mercandise
Accused pimp Eric Lamar Wells and his girlfriend Tonisha Alecia Moore, who is also a prostitute and the mother of his child, are in federal custody today for allegedly using the Internet to sell the sex services of two, unrelated minor females, ages 14 and 17.

Federal records show that last month on-the-ball police busted the scheme that operated in Anaheim, Scottsdale, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Las Vegas when officers spotted the 14-year-old girl leaving a CVS drug store by herself and walking near Disneyland

Orange County prosecutors filed charges against Wells and Moore, but then dismissed them when the FBI, Southern California Innocence Lost (SOCAIL) Task Force and federal prosecutors decided the interstate nature of the allegations require their attention.

The 14-year-old girl told police that Wells demanded all of her revenue and expected at least $500 per day, according to an FBI report.

Using www.myredbook.com and www.backpage.com (an entity owned by Village Voice Media--the parent company to OC Weekly), Wells sold the services of the girls for $200 an hour in escort ads that used numerous photographs, according to an FBI report.

The ads portrayed the girls as both 19 years old.

It is, of course, illegal to have sex with a minor.

the girl was walking out of a cvs near disneyland alone. what does this mean? that she was leaving and the pimps came up to her and tried to force her into prostitution? or the police new she was forced into prostitution, had been following the 2 men, and she  confessed to the police what the cretins made her do? this article is poorly written.

"when officers spotted the 14-year-old girl leaving a CVS drug store by herself and walking near Disneyland. "

I don't get how this prompted the bust. I would think there is quite a bit of this going on.

Why show white 'prostitutes' for a case that probably involved both black prostitutes (or girls being prostituted) and pimps?

But kudos for at least mentioning the (passive) involvement of VVM in this (and other) cases.

Maybe she had 10 boxes of condoms. I mean, that's twice as many as a typical teenage sex orgy.

I'd say they're both well in the running for "Ugliest Mug shot of the Week".

Dave, Nothing wrong with a guy being raped by a girl. I have always wanted to be raped by Sophia Loren, Racquel Welch, and a few others, but I never had the time to spare.

Um, the better question would be why they're showing someone who is NOT the alleged prostitutes in the first place. 

Would it have been okay to have fake stock photos if they were Black people? What if the hair color was wrong but the skin color was right, would you be questioning it then? 

I'm not sure what your concern is here: Is it important to you that people know that the alleged pimps were Black? If so, why? Isn't pimping out your kids just something terrible to do regardless of whether the parents are Black crack whores or White meth heads or whatever?

And did you not see the pictures of the two Black people on this page?

Wow, name calling and deflecting from the issue, not a very classy move there by the author of this piece of ethics-devoid anti-white yellow journalism

 Seems pretty applicable in this case but you still chose to show white prostitutes.  Does this have to do with the fact that black pimps enjoy whoring out young white girls to "get back at da whiteman"?

The culpability of VVM in aiding the sex trafficking industry can't be overemphasized.

Don't you have a book coming out?  Why haven't you pimped it int he last five muinutes as usual.?
