Here’s your sign: Pimp’s van a clue for cops

A man stupid enough to emblazon “Ho Hauler” on his pimp van pleaded guilty to the sex trafficking of children in federal court Wednesday.

Fox 6 in Milwaukee reports 37-year-old Sean Patrick recruited and transported girls under the age of 18 for acts of prostitution.

He transported the teens in a gold 1992 Chevrolet conversion van with the offensive words inscribed on the front quarter panel, according to court documents.

Prosecutors say Patrick punished his victims by choking them, stomping them or making them stand naked in the street next to the van.

Patrick, who was previously convicted of shooting and killing a man over a dispute about prostitutes, could spend the rest of his life in prison. As part of a plea agreement he agreed to give up $10,000 in profits and the van.

WHAT? I reported this van stolen three weeks ago. If anyone should get the profits, I should.

“Patrick, who was previously convicted of shooting and killing a man over a dispute about prostitutes,…”

That sorta begs the question, why wasn’t this guy already in prison?

How is an article about child sex trafficking funny??? And why the HELL would you even joke about making a van used to exploit and prostitute young children into a halloween costume?

And why the HELL would you even want to claim this van OR claim the money that came from selling the bodies of young children? THESE are CHILDREN who are forced into prostitution and NOT prostitutes. It’s criminal and wrong on so many other levels.

Y’all are either sick or sadly unaware of what is happening in the world. Y’all need to do a little reading – Not for Sale. Street Grace. International Justice Mission.

@ Christy: Get off of your moral high horse. Comedy based upon tragic events is just that. Maybe it is how they deal with such horrible news. I myself think the “Ho Hauler” is an excellent idea for a costume. It would help spread the message that this stuff is real and that everyone should take notice. I would also like to just clarify one thing: even if you are forced into prostitution once you turn a trick you are officially a prostitute…period. Just saying, you should read a book – Merriam Webster: Dictionary for Misplaced Do-Gooders. Furr Buss, 18-wheeler with a tramp ramp, Shaggin’ Wagon, Booty Boat, Rub & Tug Bug.

High Horse, Christy is right on in her comments, and you are a low-life d-bag. How about I come over and screw your “ho” sister for 5 bucks? Still think it’s funny, piece of shyte? Better stay in your mommy’s basement; you aren’t equipped to survive out here in the real world among the people who hate your kind.

WOW High Horse. Someone forced into prostitution doesn’t “turn tricks” she or he is raped. Forcing a sex act on someone and then paying a third party makes that person a victim not a prostitute.
