Robert Kraft video evidence to remain sealed for time being, judge rules

Tbh, this whole thing seems to have been bs from the go and publicly shaming Kraft and the woman he paid for consensual sex work is tawdry and pointless.


I agree. I don't understand why Kraft won't allow the case to be resolved. If he admits he would lose in court the case will go away. I can't fathom why he won't do that.

That's true. Pay your fine and move on, Kraft.

The real story here isn't Robert Kraft being caught in a massage parlor, it is the incredible misuse of authority by the police in talking about releasing video and such before a person has even been tried.

Really dirty stuff by the police and using the ridiculous human trafficking line to start the whole thing makes it even worse.

He is a New England Patriot:

Bela-cheat above the law, does what it takes to win
Brady cheats then destroys evidence, did nothing wrong...
Kraft Billionaire pays poor girl a lousy $100 for sex

I think he fights it, because if there is any type of conviction, he is getting a suspension.

I doubt there will be a suspension but if there is, so what?

Good point but I'm still puzzled. What is Kraft's reason for dragging this case on? I don't think it's to expose police abuse of power.

Mentions Krafts “rescued sex traffic victims” were actually just prostitutes not held against their will.

Yeah. This is why I was saying when the story broke that there’s a certain level of racism tied to those pushing the “sex trafficking” narrative without evidence. It was an asian spa — had to be sex trafficking! If they were white, it would just be prostitution of course.

The judged ruled that the video is inadmissible, and as such, it may never been seen by the public.

And all of humanity breathes a collective sigh of relief.

OK. Now the video is in the closet. Inadmissibility doesn't remove the optics. Kraft's image has taken a hit. IMO it's nothing to be ashamed of. He's a single senior who still has the ability. Maybe this will allow this case to go away in the courts and media.

He may have accomplished what he intended. No one will see him in his birthday suit.

Good. I hope none of the johns whose names were on the immediately publicly released list of arrestees lost their jobs or livelihoods due to the overblown vice squad sting.

Why?


For what should they lose their job or livelihood?

For the record, I said what I said because I thought we would all agree that no one wanted to see what was on that tape!

I think the is two clear lessons from this case....

1. Money = excellent lawyers = difficult to prosecute.

2. Local law enforcement outside of units like NYPD, LAPD, Chicago PD (you get the point) are not qualified to do these long detailed sting operations.

I've been asking why Kraft dragged this case on and on. I'm beginning to think maybe HE didn't want anyone to see what was on the tape. Imagine what a 77 year old man laid bare on a massage table looks like? Probably not a sight for sore eyes. It may be a embarrassment. Size matters.
