Yes, but not from a public shaming by ME.

I don't believe innocent people go to massage parlors. There are legitimate massage therapists for that.
It’s already known that with this spa there were definitely customers who went to get legit massages, including women. That’s part of the concern with making the videos public.

Is your problem here legality or ethics/morals?

Plenty of places are called a "day spa" that don't do anything sexual or illegal. Unless someone makes one alert of the ability to ask for those services, you likely would never know. It's not like you walk in and look at a menu board at a sub shop and say..."hmmmm....I think I'll go with a #3...." "Certainly sir, would you like your salad tossed with that?" The colloquialism that "massage parlor" became a euphemism for "brothel" worked in the opposite direction you're assuming. So yes, the majority of people that go to them are "innocent" of whatever you're judging them on. Kraft clearly went there for that reason, but the average retiree in Jupiter Florida was probably looking for an affordable massage to ease his aging body.

Should probably wait for the disposition of the appeal to declare victory on this one, though I'm fairly confident you are correct.
I’ll pay it now. If we have to give an extra $50 to the Jimmy Fund, cool. You want it in somebody’s honor or memory, if that’s an option?

Interesting direction with the exclusion, basing it not on a deficiency in the warrant itself, but on the lack of minimization efforts for people who weren’t charged. I hadn’t anticipated that aspect of things. Anyone got the order itself handy?

I see what you did there. But I should have looked away, because you weren’t doing anything wrong.

If the video being made public was Kraft's #1 worry, being suspended and missing the banner unveiling was 1a.
Today's ruling in FL has given Goodell cover to delay his judgement

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday the league office will take no action against Patriots owner Robert Kraft until his solicitation of prostitution case is wrapped up in court.

And those two things are probably directly related to one another. Kraft's lawyers have earned their pay thus far.

The interplay of public record law and information obtained pursuant to warrants is pretty interesting. The end result may become unwelcome for law enforcement.

If illegally obtained information is subject to disclosure then I think you are going to get higher scrutiny of certain types of warrants. I’ve posted a few times the absurdity of making subject to public disclosure information that has been judged to have been collected in violation of the law because it is an invasion of privacy. Judicially or legislatively I have a feeling there will be a fix and Robert Kraft May well be the catalyst.
