    I just want to say that I am proud to be from Kentucky. We maybe simple people but the simple things in life are always the best. For the police officer, I am glad we have them around , I don't fear them everytime I go out of the house. They keep the crazies down and the prostitutes off the street. As for Cindy, girl clean up your act. Don't be so proud of yoour failers in life. I LOVE KY!!!

    WOW! This was disappointing display of commentary. I though this was suppose to be a discussion of the story.

    To Cindy; obviously you are not as smart as you think you are or you never would have been caught for prostitution. Let me guess; you were beat as a child, daddy left and mommy never loved you so you turned to prostitution to find someone who might show you some sympathy? Yeah right! My childhood sucked but I have never been arrested nor do I intend to because I don't break the law. If you are afraid of the law, you are either doing something illegal, have done something illegal, or plan on doing something illegal. They don't arrest you for nothing. Granted sometimes they get the wrong person but you said you were a prostitute and they got you for that. You really aren't making a good case for yourself but please keep on posting; it makes me feel so much better about my life :)

    Nottalula, why are dragging cars into this? Get the hell out of Dodge? What's wrong with a Dodge? Why don't you get the hell out of KIA?

    For one Steve- this may surprise you but there are lots of Cindy. Now my personal opinion the prostitution Cindy is someone making fun of me because he is not nearly smart enough to right posts in his own name to get points across so he mocks me with his poor grammer and made up stories. And to all of you that think police don't laugh and joke about beating up suspects work in the ER for a while and you will hear it all the time. They DO think it is funny. They even act like they are proud of themselves when they don't hit someone who is just sitting there doing nothing. I hear it all the time. It is gross and disheartening. I used to have a lot of respect for the police until I moved here.

    Sure is a lot of bitter people on this site. Nottalula is so angry at everyone she makes hell sound like fun! I'd be happy to give share a big Kentucky bear hug to make the poor thing feel better. SWAK!
