Houston Forced Prostitution Ring Busted

The details from the indictment are pretty horrible. Minors were taken from their homes and brought to Houston, forced to prostitute themselves and the pimps kept all of the money and beat and threatened them.

One of the “businesses” where this was taking place was  Taboo Modeling Studio North, which is just up the freeway from my house — I pass by it often.  Before today, I had always thought about the movie Paris, Texas. To think that those poor girls were there all this time — it breaks my heart.

Now, neither one of our local radio yakkers could pass up taking a swipe at this story.  Chris Baker‘s first thought was that the victims were more likely than not illegals.  (The first link, which was published in time for Baker to have read it during his show, says specifically that they are not.  I sent him an email to inform him.)

Michael Berry‘s take on the indictment is that it’s oh-so-very-funny that the Chronicle reporter had to identify the accusseds’ nicknames.  HA HA HA.  So everyone who calls into his show today has to have a pimp name.

  1. Wow just wow.. I want to weep at my desk. I have seen these sorts of places along the highway and wondered, but just turned my head and stopped thinking about it.

    I want to make some really smart sounding social commentary.. but I am literally stunned.. this is really sad.

    • At least now the girls are free from their captivity, but sadly not from what will be a very difficult time trying to adjust to something resembling a normal life, if they can at all.

  2. damned at random

    Although I doubt these assholes keep client records like the DC Madam, it would be great if some of the johns were exposed publicly for the lowlife baby-fuckers they are

  3. Many of guys talk about this topic but you wrote down really true words!

  4. Asking questions are genuinely pleasant thing if you are not understanding something totally, except this post provides good understanding even.
