TOP TEN SIGNS YOU ARE BEING SET UP BY AN UNDERCOVER VICE COP


text and graphics/cartoons by Norma Jean Almodovar©

# 10.

He asks you to bring him some drugs. Often cops will try to get an added drug charge against you in order to “clinch” their arrest and be able to manipulate you better.
DO NOT AGREE TO BRING HIM ANYTHING STRONGER THAN BREATH MINTS!!!

IF HE GETS UNDRESSED, TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT HIS PECKER TO SEE IF HE HAS ANY DISTINGUISHING FEATURES THAT YOU CAN DESCRIBE TO THE JURORS WHEN YOU GO TO COURT.

#9.

He asks, “so how long have you been doing this?”
PLAY DUMB. ASK HIM
“WHY WHATEVER DO YOU MEAN?”

#8

You hear the smoke alarm go off in the other room (if you are visiting him either at his “home” or a hotel) it’s most likely a bunch of horny cops in the other room smoking as they watch you get undressed on the video monitor. If you do get arrested, insist upon getting paid for the strip show.

IF LITTLE BELLS START GOING OFF IN YOUR HEAD- LISTEN TO THEM! YES A COP CAN LIE TO YOU..... HE HAS A LEGAL RIGHT TO DO SO... AND IN SOME STATES HE CAN HAVE SEX WITH YOU BEFORE HE ARRESTS YOU.
DON’T EVER TALK ABOUT SEX AND MONEY AND IF HE INSISTS UPON GETTING YOU TO DISCUSS A SEX ACT, GET UP AND LEAVE IMMEDIATELY!
IF HE IS VISITING YOU, TELL HIM HE HAS OFFENDED YOU AND ASK HIM TO LEAVE!
UNFORTUNATELY YOU CAN STILL BE ARRESTED EVEN IF YOU DON'T MENTION SEX AND MONEY... AND IF YOU TRY TO LEAVE, THE OTHER COPS MAY ARREST YOU ON YOUR WAY OUT.


#7

He promises to order drinks but then his pager goes off. He is not supposed to drink on duty- although he may. If he doesn’t have any beverages to offer you, the guy has no class anyway. Make him order LOTS of room service before you ever discuss business! Order the most expensive bottle of champagne, then wait until it arrives and uncork it. At least get a GOOD meal on the taxpayers before you go to jail and have to eat peanut butter sandwiches and drink nothing but warm water!

#5

He asks you to get undressed but HE won’t. If you are being videotaped, he will not undress for you- so if he acts shy- but he wants to see you get naked, refuse to do so unless he does first. Ask him to grab himself, do a little dance and hum for YOU- that will go over well in court when the jury watches the video.

#6

He says “why don’t you hum and clap and do a little dance for me?” Clapping is usually the signal for the other cops to come in and make the arrest.
You are not required to be the instrument of your own undoing. If HE starts clapping, grab your purse and RUN!

#4

He counts out the money aloud as he pays you If he has so little class that he would count out the money rather than just discreetly hand it to you, then something is terribly wrong! You are probably being videotaped. Act shocked that he is paying you. Tell him you don’t know nothin’ about no stinkin’ money. Insist that he stop or you will have to leave.

#3

He insists upon being explicit about a sex act... “do you do it from behind?” or “I’d like an American Specialty” (whatever THAT is...) If he is a cop, he wants to get you to agree to a sex act- either straight sex, oral sex or anal sex. He is not supposed to say what he is looking for but must try to get you to say it. [However, he can arrest you even if you don’t say it.]
PLAY DUMB. ASK HIM “WHY WHATEVER DO YOU MEAN?”

Remember, sex work is a dangerous profession: that’s why it usually takes 7 cops to bust one suspected prostitute- just know that they are doing all this for your own good!

#2

He asks “What do I get for my money?”
PLAY DUMB. ASK HIM “WHY WHATEVER DO YOU MEAN?”

#1

A stranger calls you and says,
“My buddy Joe says you are lots of fun-
I’d like to come over and have some fun too!”
PLAY DUMB. ASK HIM “WHY WHATEVER DO YOU MEAN?”

Other tips to avoid arrest:
•If he says he speaks another language and you also speak that language, make sure his knowledge of the language is genuine. If you think he isn’t who he says he is, you are probably right!
•Be extra careful on multiple girl calls- cops like to set up as many women as possible at one time- saves paperwork.
•If you go to his hotel room, and he asks you to sit in a specific seat, rather than wherever you want, he may be angling you for the video camera. Either make sure they get your good side or tell him you’ll sit wherever you damn please.

If you have been arrested, please consult an attorney.
To keep from getting arrested, know the law and how it is enforced.
If you engage in sex work, you have a right NOT to go to jail “for your own good.” It is YOUR body- and only YOU have the right to determine if you are being "exploited" or "degraded" by the work you do. Stand up for yourself- and if we all do, the courts will be overwhelmed by the number of prostitution cases and maybe eventually, they will stop treating adult women like we are children!
