Sweden's Justice System

Just in case you were feeling like the US Criminal Justice system was too warped to be beaten by any other country's... check this out.

Apparently, it is perfectly legal to sell sex in Sweden... with only one caveat: It is illegal to buy sex in Sweden. I'm not sure how that works out, but it's a pretty sweet deal for the hookers. What really perplexes me is that apparently the only penalty is a fine, and some respected public figures like the judge in this article are even retaining their jobs after the fact. Go figure...
