Is that an IED in your pocket or are you just glad to see me?
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the New York City Police Department (NYPD) today raided the Manhattan headquarters of Rentboy.com, which bills itself as “the original and world’s largest male escort site.” CEO Jeffrey Hurant and six other employees were arrested, according to WABC New York. The feds also seized their homes, bank accounts, and $1.4 million.
The raid was carried out in conjunction with a criminal complaint unsealed today in the U.S. district Court for the Eastern District of New York. Hurant and the other employees were charged with conspiring to violate the Travel Act by promoting prostitution.
“Rentboy.com attempted to present a veneer of legality, when in fact this Internet brothel made millions of dollars from the promotion of illegal prostitution,” said Acting United States Attorney Kelly T. Currie, also thanking the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and the New York District Attorney’s Office for their help in bringing down the popular escort advertising site.
“Rentboy.com profited from the promotion of prostitution despite their claim that their advertisements were not for sexual services,” said NYPD Police Commissioner William Bratton. But “thanks to the detectives, agents, and prosecutors of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District involved in this investigation, these individuals will be held accountable for running this racket.”
So, instead of worrying about all the real threats to national security, the morons at the DHS are raiding escort services.
Al Qaeda holds Death To The West conferences in Chicago, and Jamaat Al Fuqra terrorists have established training centers across the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood, the Arab-American Action Network, and CAIR, three major facilitators of Islamic terrorism, operate freely in America. A government report concluded that Hezbollah has been forming sleeper cells throughout the United States that could become operational. Half the fucking population of Dearborn, Michigan, functions as terrorist facilitators.
To top it off, there’s a pro-muzzie Dhimmi in the White House who has no problem with the threat.
But Rentboy’s prostitution business gets the vice squad treatment from the DHS.
