What Happened to the Days When You Could Buy a Hooker With A Roll of Quarters

“A man in Greenwood, S.C., was arrested for buying a roll in the hay with a roll of quarters, police say

Larry Collum, 63, was arrested Wednesday evening after police pulled him over because he was driving his SUV very slowly down the street.

There was another reason: The cops noticed Rhonda Kelley, 41 — a known prostitute — was in the passenger seat, WNEM.com reported. At first, Collum told police that he was just giving Kelley a ride home, but later admitted having sex with her in exchange for the $10 roll of quarters. Police located the roll on Kelley, but she denied the romp, GWDToday.com reported. Collum was charged with solicitation of prostitution while Kelley was booked on prostitution charges. Collum was taken to the Greenwood County Detention Center, where he allegedly told officers he paid to have sex with the woman because his wife had been in a nursing home for 13 years. He added that he had made a serious error in judgment, according to the Greenwood Index Journal.” – HuffPost

Everyone needs to get off Larry’s back! This guy tears through his couch cushions, lifts every rug in the house, and reaches between the seats of his SUV to scrounge up enough change to buy himself a good time, and the police ruin the party? Typical police activity, just kicking a man while he’s down.  This guy probably had the good sense to roll his own change instead of getting ripped off at a Coinstar machine, and this is how society repays him? Throwing him in the slammer, from catching some dome from a $10 hooker? It’s a disgrace, can’t a guy just live?
