Nightclub Raid Nets Women For Solicitation And Immigration Offences

FOURTEEN women - 12 Jamaican and two Bahamian - have been arrested for solicitation and immigration infringements after a nightclub raid by Flying Squad officers on Friday night.

Officers, acting on intelligence, descended on a nightclub at Rosetta and Madeira Streets, where they found 12 women from Jamaica and two Bahamian women hiding in a secret room. The officers suspected the women to be at the nightclub for the purpose of solicitation for prostitution.

The women were taken into custody for solicitation for prostitution and breach of the Immigration Act. The club owner was also arrested for breach of the Liquor Licence Act and solicitation for prostitution.

POLICE COMMANDOS ............... as the economy gets worse across the Caribbean, there will be more women and men in our country being trafficked by smugglers as modern day slaves like in the US and Europe ................... that may be their final destination, once they have paid their Bahamian bosses .................... its a dirty, criminal underworld that we have turn a blind eye to for decades

These people are unreal. Murderers walk the street, but strip bar workers are picked up without a second's delay. The police in this island must have no heart. Don't they realize that men have sexual needs that must be fulfilled. Make love not war. If the men need a little something, let them have it. Who are they hurting. I grow sicker of this country by the day. They don't want the men to rape or kill, yet they lock up their one release at a moment's notice. Are they not aware of Maslow's hierarchy of needs that places sexuality as a basic, survival need on the same level as eating and shelter. It's time we get over our sexual hangups as a people! If you don't want it, don't do it, but certainly don't ruin it for all the rest. Why force men to travel to Cuba for some action? That is cruel and inhumane. Even the tourists want it, but can't find it anywhere, so they're leaving in droves this hideously boring little island called The Bahamas.

Is this the same Rosetta/Madeira club they have raided several times before?

I believe so. And, how is it the nightclub's manager and owner never get in trouble or lose the licence. The police probably rounded up 30 woman but en route to the station the officers get a little piece from a bunch of them and only 14 ended up in jail. The gals that free up got dropped back to the nightclub.

Wow the moral police... what a waste of government resources, people are being killed, robbed, and rapped on this island.. Unless this is an issue of human trafficking or any unwilling participation leave the oldest profession in the world alone, legalize and tax it.

You folks really need to read up on "human trafficking"...it's not a trivial issue as some of you suggest.
