    Shocking. They all look like such eligible bachelors. I’m sure any lady would consider herself lucky to score a date with one of these winners.
    But seriously the real question is where did any of them get the money to afford to pay for a prostitute?

  2. Julian says:

    Do the police have anything more important to do? Come on go to the streets where the real crime is! And the media shaming these men, hypocrisy at its finest!

    No wonder we Mexicans get the blame for everything because once a Mexican vomits a crime all Mexicans get the blame

    Wow 8 agencies used to arrest 7 guys looking for a consenting woman to have sex . That’s really great allocation of resources. Escondido is really keeping us safe. What did this cost Escondido? Maybe $30,000, $40,000 more….?
