It was brought up how laws don't actually prevent anything, and that is partially true. They do, and they don't.

No words on paper ever actually prevent anything. Only people choosing to obey them due to a certainty of punishment does. And that, is an unquantifiable thing. No one can give you any numbers on how many crimes were never committed.
Well stated.

Let's face it -- how many laws were broken, and by how many people, for each one of these transactions? I can think of several, both state and federal. Plenty of charges to go around. Now multiply that by 47.

She, her fiance, and "Man-man" all knew they were breaking the law. So did all the eventual purchasers. What good would one more law (or ten more laws) have done when the actors set out with the intent of breaking whatever laws apply?

"So, what to do?"

Send her to prison and widely publicize that.
