'Bungled from the beginning': How Robert Kraft sex sting was marred by cops' missteps

(Snip)


PUTTING UP A FIGHT

Palm Beach County prosecutors say it was simply Kraft’s “bad luck and bad timing” that he happened to be in the Orchids of Asia Day Spa when the secret police cameras were turned on.

But another view is that it was their terrible luck that Kraft, a 77-year-old who has a home in Palm Beach, was among the people Jupiter police caught in the act.

In all previous prostitution stings at South Florida massage parlors — including a few with similar sneak-and-peek warrants for secret cameras — the cases resolved quietly and mostly out of the spotlight.

Few if any people charged ever challenged the prosecutions. They paid fines and performed community service hours, to avoid embarrassment.

1. When you charge a billionaire with a crime, you had better come loaded for bear.

This case proves just once again that money rules in our criminal justice system. Putting a $130,000-$200,000 a year prosecutor up against lawyers whose monthly billings are likely twice those amounts means those that can pay high legal fees end up walking scotfree.

2. The cops fucked up from the very beginning.

What the fuck were they doing filming everyone? Even those who did not solict sex? That absolutely should not be permitted. I do not accept any reason defending that process.
