The following is an article which appears in the New York Daily News. It has to do with the arrest of a real pimp. This is what pimp’s do. They mis-use and degrade the 2 most blessed creations that the Creator has given us – children and women.

Recently in the hip-hop community the ‘I’m a P.I.M.P.’ craze is seen as ‘kool’ or ok by many. We got ''I''m a P.I.M.P. and PIMP juice. Read this true life pimp article and remember it when your at that dance, or your listening to the radio and you hear this chorus ‘I don''t know what you heard about me - but this bi*ch can''t get a dollar out of me  - no cadillac no perms you can''t see - That I''m a motherf***ing P-I-M-P.’

Forget the good beat or the head bobbing appeal; think about the lyrics and the disrespect that is being shown our women. Read this article. This is not rap or hip-hop culture. A  P.I.M.P. is a sick individual who doesn’t deserve to be ‘honored'' in a song.

Realize what you are supporting and is that really the kind of attitude you do what to support. Or remember this article when you hear that little nephew or little brother singing and bobbing to I''m a P.I.M.P.; not really having no idea what it is they are claiming to want to be. The children talked about in this article could be your daughter, cousin, or friend, because in reality it doesn''t matter to a P.I.M.P..

‘Busted as brutal pimp of 2 teens’

A Queens pimp was busted for raping two runaway teens - then forcing them into prostitution and taking the money they made turning dozens of tricks a week, officials said yesterday.

Barrington Haffenden, 30, kept the 13- and 15-year-old girls trapped in his filthy Jamaica apartment, plying them with booze and pot, and viciously beating them, law enforcement sources said.

The teens each had unprotected sex with as many as seven men a night in cars, motels and various homes, prosecutors said.

Their ordeal was uncovered last week when the 15-year-old Long Island girl escaped, hopped a subway to Brooklyn and went to police.

The girl had arrived at Haffenden's door on Jan. 5 after she ran away from home. Apparently, she had called a former classmate, a 16-year-old alleged hooker, who encouraged her to go there, sources said.

The 13-year-old girl had been living in fear since June, when she ran away from her Bronx home and was recruited by Haffenden, authorities said. She was raped at his first-floor flat and his mother's Linden Blvd. home, prosecutors charge.

"He was beating her up and dragging her by the hair," said a neighbor, who didn''t want her name used. "She kept saying, ''Leave me alone!''"

Armed with a search warrant, NYPD detectives arrested Haffenden and the 16-year-old Thursday at his 158th St. apartment. They found the 13-year-old girl inside.

Haffenden's lawyer, Michael Paul, said his client denies the charges. He noted that cops traced a call the 15-year-old made from his cell phone.

"If he had intended to hold them against their will, he wouldn''t be stupid enough to let them use his cell phone," Paul said, adding Haffenden believed the girls to be 18.

The ex-con has been charged with rape and kidnapping and is being held without bail, a spokesman for Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. The 16-year-old was charged with kidnapping and promoting prostitution. Both face up to 25 years in prison, if convicted.

In a similar case, Long Island pimp Woodolph Romeo, 25, of Elmont was sentenced to six years in prison for raping and forcing two teenage girls to have sex for money, Brown announced yesterday.

The girls, ages 13 and 14, turned tricks at an area known as "the track" near Kennedy Airport, Brown said.
