Former University Head Charged With Running Prostitution Ring

Crime 1

timothy writes "'Police say five people have been arrested and two more are sought in connection with a prostitution website operated by a New Jersey professor.' Yeah, and one of them used to head a major state university. Jeesh! I wonder if this will affect the Newsweek ratings for schools by forcing them to include a whole new column listing the best crimes committed by the university president."

Severely NULL story (1)

RockDoctor (15477) | about 3 years ago | (#36578498)

To quote TFA :

"At this point it looks purely coincidental" that two of the top members were academics, police Lt. William Roseman said.

For a little more precision, this sounds more like a (semi-)organised group of "punters" (I think the American equivalent is a "Washington", or an "Adams" or something similar) with some degree of organisation to swap recommendations ("Crystal on 111-222-3333-4444 says she swallows, but really spits") and-or warnings (see previous comment).

(Do I need to explain? Surely not to an experienced group such as Slashdot's wankers^H^H^H^H^H^H^H readers.)

If there was evidence of Prof.X saying Student.Y "has a hot ass, and will do bareback anal for â150 and an A-grade in statistical analysis", then there might be a story. In fact, the appropriate phrase is "purely coincidental."

"Male human beings involved in attempts to organise access to sexually available females" is barely a story, even if a more accurate headline than the cited story has.
