Scott, while I usually appreciate your posts, I can not disagree with you more. Most call girls are abusing some sort of substance, usually cocaine (crack or powder). Yes, I would agree that they are slightly different from the streetwalkers. However, many of these call girls have sex with shady characters. JSO Vice detectives are assigned to inforce Vice activities, which include, prostitution and gambling. These detectives make arrests and sometimes utilize these girls to obtain information on other crimes. They do see more than the average citizen. Prostitution has been linked to other crimes and should be addressed. Where you see prostitutes, I guarantee drugs (read violence) are near.

we used to run with call girls and very very few of them used drugs at all. they were nothing more than money hungry bitches. i know that sounds harsh, but its what they are. thats why call girls do what they do, for the big money. i just like prostitution should be legalized and taxed like it is in parts of nevada. it has been a very successful program out there.

Yeah, it's alright for you cops to pose as legitimate clients, producing so-called valid ID and then rape and then the 7-man team that rapes and sodomizes the escort then throws her in jail. THAT doesn't get reported, DOES IT?????

America: land of hypocritical ass-up patriachy and MORE. America has its head so far up itself, it cannot even see daylight, or anything else but themselves for that matter. Time to grow up, children of the planet.

Jacksonville's violent crime rate for 2006 is in most cases 50% higher than the national average. Maybe the JSO should rethink it's priorities.

You can find them and arrest them, but if the judges don't prosecute, as they usually don't, they'll be out in the streets tomorrow. Just look at the victim advocate paper and you will see the same ones in there month after month. Why??

because it takes the heat off of them for the high violent crime rate. it distracts a lot of people.

I can't stop wondering why it's illegal to sell something that you can legally give away. It just seems ludicrous!

let me clarify what i meant. it is a law based on morality that does not cause due harm to someone or their belongings such as murder, robbery, burglery, drug dealing and such. it is based solely on the opinion of a government based on puritan beliefes.

just wanted to jump in with i have lived in jville all my life have seen hookers and call girls all over this FU city the cops in this town would rather arrest someone for dui,trespass,tag out of date,solicting both ways,anything they can make a buck on and waste everyone concerned time what we need to do is install more street lights in places like the gardens so murders and robbers have a betterlook at who they are robbing i have often wondered why some one would have a concealed weapons permit now i know its like the old west who draws first where is marshall dillon and festus

I have seen a lot of this lately and frankly no one agrees with the time and effort spent arresting two adults skipping the money spent for the dinner and movie and just getting right to it. Police should be arresting violent criminals!!!

If you think about it just for a little bit. People using people for personal enjoyment. I'm sure bring your husband or wife a disease home doesn't your mind or perhaps your children someday may be that girl on the street. How would feel then knowing that some guy just wants sex with your daughter and will pay her, would that be ok with you. 9 out of 10 girls prostituting or escorting are drug users. If you want to take a bit out of the crime look in the mirror and start with the person you see first. It all starts with us. If your paying for a hooker or whatever your no different that the girl, so who is sicker, them or you.

Who cares about all the STD's spread by MALE and female and even he/she hookers? Pathetic men have a right to buy who ever they want! Good luck taking care of Grandma who got AIDS because of a hooker on craigslist because Grandpa wanted a little strange on the side.

"A nonprofit advocacy group against human sexual trafficking, called the Polaris Project, believes Craigslist is now the single largest source for prostitution, including child exploitation, in the country. The project surveyed all Craigslist pages for apparent prostitutes on Feb. 7 of this year. It identified thousands across the country... "

Look at Jacksonville's erotic section of craigslist and flag the hookers and write your lawmaker TODAY!
