A Sheriff's sergeant from Snohomish County, Washington was busted for allegedly demanding sex (even while in uniform) in exchange for tipping off bikini baristas--who were suspected of dabbling in prostitution--about undercover agents.
The operation spanned approximately nine months, involved three local law enforcement agencies plus the FBI (which supplemented the generous amount of surveillance footage provided by their local partners). It culminated in about a dozen prostitution-related arrests.
So even if the arrests included people who actually were engaged in prostitution, the massive sting operation probably didn't actually curtail prostitution. What's more likely is that it resulted in new job openings for the world's oldest profession. Expect more status quo police tactics, where prohibition corrupts cops, busts people engaged in consensual acts, and diverts resources.
The Snohomish County Sheriff's Department created a deck of cold case playing cards to raise awareness about people who have been victims of violent crime. Imagine if all the resources focused on busting naughty baristas were focused instead on busting those who murdered the people whose faces adorn the playing cards.

“Gets stuff done,” is a good way to be described by anybody. Especially by coworkers or bosses. Because whether you’re in finance or a children’s librarian, stuff needs to get done. But how do you make sure stuff gets done? You definitely can’t do all the stuff yourself, unless your company/organization/government office consists entirely of you. And […]
Even the most expensive pair of hi-fi headphones can’t match the feeling of bass rumbling through your body at a live show. That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
