What is it with the DC area and attracting the worst of society into positions of authority. This month alone, we've covered child porn rings, child prostitution rings, and now this, all run by the 'boys in blue" from D.C.

Is there a SCUM MAGNET in the area? Maybe the large concentration of sociopathy from all of the politicians attracts a like kind.

According to prosecutors, between February 2013 and May 2013, the officer’s prostitution business serviced more than 300 customers.

Lamin Manneh, 32, of Baltimore, pleaded guilty to traveling across state lines and using a telephone and Internet to operate a prostitution business. Manneh faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison, followed by up to lifetime of supervised release, for operating a prostitution business.

In charging documents, prosecutors said his wife had entered into a “contract of slavery” with him and agreed to be subservient to him as her “master.”

Manneh posted more than 50 advertisements for the 19-year-old prostitutes on various web sites; rented an apartment and hotel rooms; and drove the teenagers to perform sex acts at residences or hotel rooms.

The former police officer provided the women with cell phones and taught them to how to talk to clients, according to the indictment. He waited outside the rooms while the women were with the clients, and carried his police-issued firearm and provided the women with synthetic marijuana.

Obviously prostitution is a victimless crime and should not be against the law as it is two consenting adults engaging in a mutually beneficial agreement. However, Manneh was forcing his wife to be a prostitute which removed any ethical definition of the word consent; therefore, he deserves far worse than the maximum penalty for his crimes.
