Solicitation of a Prostitute Sting from Backpage? | Lakewood Police Soliciting Arrest

Lakewood Police (charging 9.45.020 – Prostitution Prohibited) and Denver Police (charging General Sessions Sec 38-158) seem to set up the most frequent Solicitation of a Prostitute stings in Colorado. Lakewood Police love to use Backpage to set up massages where sex is expected or agreed to, and Denver Police love to set a cute officer up as a Prostitute on the side of the road near Colfax. Either way, I wonder how much money they must make with these stings. We often see Denver taking your car and filing a public nuisance civil forfeiture action. They make a ton of money and often get to keep your car!
