So the NFL owner got a massage with a happy ending. What’s the big deal?


Getting a warrant out for your arrest is no happy ending unless you are into that type of snm. There is likely no big deal at 77.


This is true. However, we all know he’s got plenty of money to bail his ass out of this. Unless, he owned the prostitution ring, that is.

FoxNews says the Feds have been tracking Kraft for months. It's air-tight, despite his denial just now. Power makes people feel bullet-proof.

Human trafficking often involves children.
Unwilling prostitutes as well.

Kraft may just be in the wrong place but I'll wait and see.


Perhaps often, but not always. You are wise to wait for more information here. Most of the time, a "rub shack" is run by a set of foreign immigrants, many times undocumented, that perform a service. From what I understand, there is a large group of people that are advocating for more of that in this country.

He got a handjob or BJ at an Asian massage parlor. They are sensationalizing it like crazy. I never have but I know basically all my friends have done the same. Human trafficking isn't the issue. Prostitutes choose to go there because every rich celebrity and person will be there. Good business plan.

When you’re that kind of filthy rich, in one way or the other — you’re always paying for sex. Ain’t no woman with him for his personality....

Asian Day Spas are notorious for prostitution... we just had a bust here in my little suburb. Seems like they bust one or two every year.

They should just legalize it and ensure workers are eager, legal, and of age. Waste of time and resources.

You pay some chick at a day spa for a happy ending it is illegal prostitution, but you buy a chick a steak and lobster dinner and get the same in return then we call it a date.

Yup, so in a sense, we all pay for sex.

Reminds me of the ancient phrase: ‘Men don’t pay prostitutes for sex. They are paying for them to leave at the end’.

From an article at ABC, Kraft is only charged with "soliciting another to commit prostitution" but it seems the spa is suspected of human trafficking --

As for the human trafficking case in Martin County, Snyder described the operation as an 8-month, multi-agency investigation. “The tentacles of this go from here to New York to China, in Florida from here to Orange County,” Snyder said.

Snyder stressed the case is bigger than what was disclosed Tuesday.

“I think it’s very safe to say without any hyperbole that this is the tip of the iceberg,” Snyder said.

Robert Kraft, New England Patriots owner, charged in human trafficking/prostitution investigation

There doesn't seem to be any hint of Kraft being suspected of being involved with the human trafficking.... beyond providing the demand which was being supplied...

But it ain't over yet, so we'll see.

Many of these places employ illegal immigrants and the workers are forced into it. They do the same at asian nail salons in many cases.

I think prostitution should be legal as long as it is between two consenting adults. I do agree authorities should be investigating any kind of human trafficking.

Within a few days, we have Jeffrey Epstein case being reexamined and now Robert Kraft going down for prostitution... Some powerful men are going down, and some other powerful men are likely worried of things to come..

If you have a camera rolling, you are making a porn film, which is legal.

Also, According to Adam Schefter (NFL reporter), "Robert Kraft is not the biggest name involved in all of this..."

More info to come... I'm curious who it is?

Knowing its right near Jupiter, FL, where loads of golfers live... I wouldn't be surprised if the other name is Tiger Woods, but who knows, maybe its Tom Brady... But how is a billionaire owner of the NE Patriots not the biggest name invovled??

What I find more interesting is how all the rich and powerful seem to know which places to visit... there must be like 10 of these joints within 2 square miles in my town. They all look the same from the outside. I get massages at my gym for back pain. The masseuses are very nice and professional. The massages are very clinical.

I've always known Asian Day Spas were fronts for prostitution rings. I mean none of these places look like the kind of place anyone would go to for a legit massage imho unless you were specifically looking for sexual undertones.

Maybe people shouldn't touch children


The way I read the alert that came through my friend's phone was that he basically tried to get a "happy ending" at an Asian massage parlor. It didn't mention anything about kids.

That doesn't surprise me. I know it's a problem with illegal immigration from south of the border. It's just a byproduct of the black market.

In theory, I agree -- whatever consenting adults decide to do is their right and privilege -- but it doesn't always work so well in practice. There is so much/too much room for abuse. I have no idea how to go about regulating or policing the industry though. And, in the end, sunlight is the best disinfectant, so a legal and free market will always beat the black market.

All I have seen so far he is that he banged a couple prostitutes, that the business were trafficking. Why are people talking like its kids?

Maybe someone more up to speed with the laws involved can enlighten us:

BBC is saying he's charged with a misdemeanor for soliciting prostitution. "Just" a misdemeanor, but the spa is charged with trafficking,

If it comes to pass that the spa indeed has been trafficking, will his charges be bumped to something higher than a misdemeanor?

Or is he off the hook for bigger charges because he just visited for a happy and had no idea what was going on (supposedly)?

If the latter is the case, I think his name in here is sort of a nothingburger. Who cares if someone pays for sex? Prostitution should be legal (as long as it's consensual).

If the girls were doing these things under duress, that really sucks and the spa owners should get the book thrown at them, but if Kraft truly had no idea, how can he be held at fault for it?
