Two Israeli nationals were arrested on suspicion of running a massive Palm Springs prostitution ring that employed more than 240 women in several Western states and generated millions of dollars, authorities said.Sick, sick, sick. A good friend of mine who serves in the Israeli army used to tell me about his unit's working with Bedouin trackers to track the scum who would transport women (and occasionally drugs) to Tel Aviv and other places to be used as prostitutes and, basically, slaves. What a disgraceful group of people to run such "businesses".
The men operated Elite Entertainment, which posed as an escort service in online and newspaper advertisements, according to court documents.
[Odd side note: One of the men is 44, married to a 24-year old Melanie Ann Smith. Something about that strikes me as quite odd...]
