Dear Palm Springs City Hall:
While conducting a private citizen investigation into gay human trafficking of children under the age of 14 my attention was drawn to Councilman JR Roberts bogus credentials on your official city website. Mr. Roberts seems to have also attracted the attention of several other private citizen organizations attempting to rid our crime-infested city of potentially dangerous situations.
Yesterday concerned citizens of PS were forced to file a lawsuit against city hall and the subcommittee on short-term vacation rentals, of which Mr. Roberts is a member and public spokesperson. By repealing city ordinance 1907 without notice, you threaten municipal government as an effective application of the United States Constitution and therefore democracy itself.
Short-Term Vacation Rentals Are Still Hotel Rooms
So-called “short-term vacation rentals” are really “long-term hotel rooms” in disguise and should be regulated as such. Having a short-term rental next to your $4 million desert retreat is like living next door to a small boutique hotel. How do you know who is really living in that nice big house? What if your new neighbors are not who they say they are? Hotels require valid ID for each room and vacation rentals do not. What if registered child sexual predators from the UK are exploiting twelve year-old Mexican boys by sub-letting rooms in the desert dwelling next to you?
Taxation Without Representation
It’s The Economy Einstein: Many interesting and exciting parties and events these days are paid commercial operations conducted in leased and rented luxury homes. Hip entrepreneurs are able to offer sex parties that hotels cannot due to legal restrictions. Private paid sex parties at rented homes are a big business in Southern California and elsewhere in our libertine society. These illegal businesses take customers away from the legitimate gay sex resorts and bathhouses in Palm Springs.
Some of the most interesting gay sex parties I have ever been to are in private homes in our South Compadre neighborhood. Unbeknownst to me, some of these parties are run by gay entrepreneurs who are registered child sexual offenders. Would you want one of these types of parties to be held next door to you?
Neighbors would never know they exist because pedophiles are clandestine by nature and the music volume is intentionally kept very low. You would probably notice the parked cars but parked cars will not necessarily draw neighbor complaints and cops. These criminals are professionals sucking up public resources for private profit. Short-term vacation rentals should be taxed as heavily as cigarettes & alcohol to compensate for their total cost to the entire city of Palm Springs.
Save Our City
You are attempting to create a new commercial business model that violates public law. There are also federal questions regarding national security, immigration, etc. We should be more careful about who we let into our neighborhoods. Some people are not who they say they are. Just ask Mr. Roberts.
Very truly yours,
Private Citizen Human Trafficking Investigator
