The Thin Line That is Injustice It is common practice for law enforcement officials to employ dubious and somewhat underhand methods in their quest for evidence. More often than not, it is apparent that the desire for convictions surpasses the prevalence of justice in such criminal matters.

The law in its current state is incredibly flexible when it comes to prosecution (if the case even gets that far) offenders receive many different punishments. The fines given very by vast numbers, they are often given at the behest of the officers, and due to this they are subject to interpretations and arbitrary judgement. This means that police focus on prostitutes rather than pimps, traffickers, clients, and brothels.
