But, let's get real. These were a few bad eggs and this does not reflect on what the majority of agents or support personnel are all about. In fact, this was one weak-minded individual who decided to haggle with a prostitute and ruin the careers of ten other uniformed Secret Service employees and, apparently, five members of the U. S. Army. That's fifteen careers destroyed over the price of making good on services rendered.
In a country where prostitution is legal, never anger a prostitute. Not only will they use law enforcement to make good on what they think you owe them, they will use the recourse under the laws that regulate their practices to ensure that you don't go out and do that to another worker.
Unfortunately, this one individual who failed to pay for sex was not sophisticated enough to understand that his shitheaded attempt to get out of paying for the services rendered would lead to a diplomatic incident that has rocketed around the world and opened up a massive wound in the Secret Service. I mean, I can't stress that enough. Fifteen careers and his own, destroyed. What a jackass.
