(Washington Post) The Tucson police department is publicizing hundreds of names and phone numbers that appeared in some cellphones confiscated from several massage parlors around the city. Of course, there could be any number of reasons someone’s number might appear in the phone of a woman working for a massage business that has been accused of prostitution. She might have her handyman or dentist in her phone. Perhaps her friends are in there. Wrong numbers, too. There may even be a city councilman in there, for completely innocuous reasons.
So far, no one whose information was found in the phones has been charged with a crime. That’s why at least some local media are refusing to publish the names.
