    That sucks, I've never heard of a victims tax in my life. Is it a "just because" kind of thing or is there a money pool to pay for damages?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Here on all traffic tickets there is a victims tax that goes into a fund to help the victims of traffic accidents. I think it was started when after a horrendous accident where I think more than 10 people were killed and dozens injured, people started needing help paying for PTSD therapy.

    Re: Victimless crimes

    All of these crimes have a victim, whether the victim realizes they are a victim or not. I think that is where the real issue is. Most victims don't even realize they are victims.
    Scientific fact: If you took all of the veins from your body and laid them end to end, you would die.

    Like mind-boggling stupidity most people who are victims of this horrible condition do not know they are.

    Well, I hope we never adopt that here. Not that I want people involved in something to have no recourse, but more that there is no differentiation between a little speeding and running a red light.

    Yes, that's true.

    Well it's added on to every ticket as a percentage thing but it's really small I don't know what the issue is.

    2) Prostitution itself CAN lead to those things, but in of itself is a victimless crime. There are plenty safe prostitution places in Nevada that the women there love to work. What you are saying is that human trafficing is not a victimless crime... and yes I agree with you.

    I don't know the exact classification of the laws right now, but I am saying these two are the only ones I think ARE victimless crimes.
