Good Cop, Bad Prostitute

Cops have an undeniably difficult job. While the average police officer’s daily routine is rather mundane (i.e. giving out speeding tickets or breaking up a loud party), there job can go from being really boring to being really scary in a matter of seconds. We, as citizens, often forget that they are often putting themselves in precarious situations just to ensure our safety.

One of the more dangerous aspects of their job entails going undercover. Usually, this happens to bust drug dealers or child sex operations. In doing so, they learn a lot about the ins and outs of the black market and the people involved.

Here, two cops discuss the sting operation they took part in to break up a prostitution ring and a lot of what they learned is rather surprising.



No Means No

You would think that in 2017, us women wouldn’t still be dealing with sexual harassment in the workplace. I mean, we’ve come so far as a gender and made great advancements in the job force and on the home front. That’s not to say we still don’t face many challenges in a world dominated by men, but, as a whole, we are valued substantially more than, say, thirty years ago.

So, you would think we wouldn’t still have to fend off unwanted advances or make it clear to men when they are making us uncomfortable. Furthermore, you would think we would be believed when we came forward with allegations of sexual harassment or assault. Unfortunately, this is still a huge obstacle women must face.

In an interview with the New York Times, actress Amber Tamblyn discusses her own, personal ordeal with sexual advances on-set and how she wasn’t believed when she finally got the nerve to go to her boss. Unfortunately, this is a harsh reality for many women and is one of the reasons so many assaults go unreported. Read her story here.
