"For the past two years the Wichita Police Department has used this space to post photographs and information about individuals who have been arrested and charged with prostitution -related offenses in Wichita. The Department has learned that these photographs and information were being used for purposes that the Department feels were inappropriate. Because of this inappropriate use of information by individuals outside law enforcement, the Department has suspended our practice of posting this information."[3].

To this date, it is believed that because T-n-T were using the website for entertainment that the Wichita Police Department took down the site.
