Source- The 87-year-old man police say was soliciting an undercover cop posing as a prostitute will not be prosecuted.
"What would be the purpose in prosecuting him? " Kent County Prosecutor William Forsyth said Tuesday, Sept. 1. "He wouldn't and shouldn't go to jail and 87 years without involvement in the criminal justice system has, in my opinion, earned him a pass."
Howard Arthur Klein, likely the oldest person ever charged with this crime, was arrested by Grand Rapids Police around 10 p.m. June 26, near Broadway Street NW and Leonard Avenue, not far from his home.
"I could see no compelling reason to continue to prosecute Mr. Klein on the ticket he was issued for accosting and soliciting," Forsyth said. "He is 87 years old with absolutely no criminal record. In addition, I am told he struggles to some degree with dementia."
Let's have a little chat about prostitution. Anyone want to tell me why that's even still illegal? Whatever happened to the fundamental concepts of business? Supply and demand. The exchange of money for goods and services. Why doesn't sex fall under the label of a 'service' when it's something that everyone wants, and a select few women, with an extraordinary amount of daddy issues, are willing to provide? Don't we realize we are just hurting the poor, broke hookers that could be cornering the market on rarely used dick? I mean, we are trying to crack down on this whole rape thing, yet people still aren't allowed to pay for sex. What do you expect a bunch of ugly motherfuckers to do when they get tired of fucking a bunch of other ugly motherfuckers? Only so many people can date my ex-girlfriends at once (nailllled it).
Look what this whole hard stance against prostitution has done. We've got a 87 year old man that could be drowning in pussy right now. Instead he's wasting some of the valuable seconds he has left on this planet taking a ride down to the station. That blood, and possibly cum (but probably not), could be on your hands. You BETTER let that guy off with nothing more than a slap on the ass and a "go get him tiger". His wife has probably been dead for like a decade now. How else do you expect him to get his jollies? You think he's gonna spend his last few days on the planet roaming the senior citizen single scene? Gee, that sounds like a blast. It already takes this guy like a full day to get it up. I'm guessing a couple of varicose veins, some milk bags, and a pussy so dry it that it makes the entire state of California look like a waterpark aren't going to be enough to coax out whatever cloud of dust this guy still has left in his 90 year old tank. Just let him burn his hard earned money on some new, functioning vagina. You can't take it with you. Plus, you know that money would just get turned over to his grandkids to use on pussy anyway. Who needs another shameful climax more, the guy that's spent 87 years on this planet, or his grandkids that still have a lifetime of regret in front of them? At some point every single dollar bill on this planet has been, either directly or indirectly, used to pay for sex. So how about we let the guy that was around when the dollar bill was invented continue that trend. Unfortunately, we don't have time for the indirect route.
P.S. "The oldest man to get arrested for prositution" is a HELL of a title to carry into the afterlife.
