No secret to it. Call prostitute, she arrives, give money, arrest. Or in the Johns case. He arrives, take money, arrest.

You know, I moved to OP to get away from things like this and so my kids wouldn't have to grow up around the things i did. Not that my life was hard but there was a lot of bad stuff around. I'm voting for every tax increase that has to do with law enforcement. I hear there is also a growing gang problem and rise in other crimes too.

Roe vs Wade says a woman's body is her own. CHOICE! Why is being a w h o r e illegal at all? It's her body!

OP is attracting prostitutes because it's a good place to live for them, too. The streets are nicer to walk, the money's there, and the johns are there because their ladies are too busy with shoe shopping, aerobic classes, lunching on the Plaza, etc. What better setting could one ask for?

welcome to a police state, so has anyone really seen these gangs and women of ill repute. At least they are working and putting money on the table (no pun intended) What do you expect, the oldest profession in the book yes the bible. Only they were only worth mentioning not wasting tax dollars chasing, entrapping and further more spending additional dollars housing in jail and court cost, who do you think is really paying for all this police work, prison and detainee upkeep and care (3 squares and a cot) We could send every child to college with these costs. legalize prostitution, require licenses and tax them. One you reduce tax money expenditures on all of the investiagative policing and court and jail costs. You would turn a profit. Other coutries do it why not.

Obviously there arnt girls walking the street or gangs on corners.You find them on craigslist or even local bars like Saints. They are turning tricks in OP because of all the money in the area and thats why the gangs are here to stay. With all this cash the asain gangs would be stupid not to sell their drugs here. Its all about money...if you dont like it go sustain your self in the woods

It's like this:
Normal people (people with kids, mortgages, jobs, etc..) don't want prostitutes, pimps and all of the crime that comes with them in their neighborhoods. Saying that we should quit fighting crime because it costs too much money makes about as much sense as saying that you are going to quit eating because you don't like the smell when you take a dump. Other countries do it why not?! That is the dumbest argument I have ever heard. Didn't your mama ever ask you: "If all of your friends were going to jump off a cliff, would you do it to?" Why don't you take your bongo drum and go relax in your kumbaya hippie circle and let the police do their jobs.

most of u commenting r plain dumb. if the women would keep their husbands happy they wouldnt call escorts. im sure they r not all married men either. it is perfectly normal for a man or woman to go and have sex with whoever they want as long as it is free???? AND NOONE SEES ANYTHING WRONG WITH THIS? HYPOCRITES

Your Chief of Police and your counsel people are lying to you. Craig's List? These are not street walkers that are turning 20 dollar tricks to buy drugs, nor are they trying to rob people (how do you expect repeat business if you're robbing your customer), they are earning a living.
If a woman goes on line and invites men or women to her abode and has sex eight times a day that is okay, but if she asks for a single dollar before she has sex then she is a criminal. I wonder if those two counsel women have ever promised their significant other a night of passion for a expensive dinner, or just painting the house. That quid pro quo would make them guilty of prostitution. This is a moral problem or a problem between husbands and wives, it should not be a police problem.

It's because they're probably making good money at the world's oldest profession. Now,
only the cities, states, and federal governments have their self-annointed right to make tons of money off other people. It's called taxes. And they don't have to report it to anyone, either.

Yes, it IS hypocrisy. It's everywhere. Look at the obese fat a**es complaining against smokers in public places because "it isn't healthy". Look at the powers that be who tell us to "do as I say, not as I do". Double-standard hypocrisy is everywhere.
