Unarmed Man Killed By Police in Prostitution Sting

No, this didn't happen in Thailand. This tragedy took place a few days
ago in Aurora, Colorado. The 20-year old male victim accompanied an
undercover police officer to a hotel room. Uniformed police were then
signaled to come arrest him. Police report that the victim "moved
aggressively." One officer then shot the victim with a Taser, while a
second officer used a firearm. Here's a brief report from Denver's
Channel 9.

How many acts of prostitution do such stings have to deter to
make them worthwhile, given the lethal risks they pose to
officers and would-be johns alike?
