    Were GB4 OR SG forced/ coerced into the business?

    My understanding of the word coerced is as follows..


    [ame="http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&redir_esc=&client=ms-android-americamovil-us&source=android-launcher-widget&v=134000000&qsubts=1371090856936&action=dev loc&q=coerced&v=134000000"]coerced - Google Search[/ame]


    coerced: past participle, past tense of*co·erce*(Verb)Verb

    * Persuade (an unwilling person) to do something by using force or threats.
    * Obtain (something) by such means.

    While I believe that some of the GB4 victims and SG had disgusting excuses for men in their lives, who benefited off their occupation (definition for pimp), I just don't see. evidence that ANY of the victims were forced/coerced into the profession. JMHO

    I see it as a CHOICE they made, for their own reasons.

    Chime in.

    I don't think any of them were forced like something out of the movie "Taken." But I do think that when you cross a certain line and enter this world, it can become very shadowy. The lines get blurred. The usual protections of society are not present. So what does "choice" mean, in that context?

    We don't know what the relationships with the various boyfriends/pimps were like, or what it would be like if they wanted to stop working.

    We know that SG's boyfriend broke her jaw.

    MW's boyfriend was apparently up in Maine at nightclubs looking for women. Why go hundreds of miles away? Maybe because a woman from Maine is less street-smart, more easily intimidated.

    I don't think it's cut and dried.

    And I'm all for that.

    But it is interesting to look at, in the grand scheme of things, who winds up in jail and who doesn't.

    I don't care what anyone says, he's directly responsible for MW's death. When her daughter is old enough to understand all this he owes her an apology. Cruz led her right to the wolf.

    Brewer should have been arresred. MP should have been arrested. CPH should have been hooked up to polygraph.

    Is it just me or has anyone notice how uncomfortable the DA looks during any of the press conferences? I wonder why?

    I wonder if he was born here. Should immigration be waiting for him with an escort to Kennedy Airport. Maybe Mockingbird has access to that information.

    Yeah at this point in time; if that was my sister, daughter, cousin, mother, aunt, grandma......I would go rogue and take care of it myself. No doubt Kruz knows more than he is spewing. Unless he spewed it already and cops are keeping it to themselves.
