Is it just me, or is the prostitution problem on Mercer and Thorn streets getting incredibly worse?? I went through town a couple of evenings last week and they were out in full force, from the car wash on Thorn St all the way to the old Post Office.

And what is with them all drinking Mountain Dews?? Is that some sort of signal that "business is open"??

They were saying because of all the crime and street walkers on Mercer St. why would someone want to take their children there. Try and keep up with the conversation!

Both places are seeing distance from each so what does it matter .Also children dont know what prostitution is unless you tell them.

Well!!! When they see someone waving at every car comming and going,it will start them thinking, and when a child is rased up to be carefull around strangers, and see these Ladies of the night waving at every car comming and going,, they start to ask questions,
If they don't someone will bring it to their attention,, also an inocent girl around a place like that is bait for the Pimps. So I'd rather it be someplace else.. i can't tell a good lady from a bad lady even when i see them walking the street, maybe they are shoping around looking for clothes or going to the dollar store, or doing buisness witht the stores there,, but It's sometimes hard to tell which is which..
SO I myself Don't want to walk that street to go to a store, and I don't want my kids doing it either..

They dont wave the clients down they shake the MtDew can an if you dont know what that means you dont know who or what they are doing OMG PIMPS I think these bad girls pimp them self it not the big city.No matter what or who thats where the libary is going so you have a choise go or not.

here is an idea,,the police department needs to pimp a few girls out so that when the men offer payment Bam! arrest the men who are getting hooker lucky.

Or have welfare do drivebys and who ever is hooken needs to lose their, welfare check. I know the tax payer shouldnt have to pay for their dieases they have.

i use to live on mercer street, i moved about 6 months ago, it's horrible, i can't beleive the cops do NOTHING about this stuff, I came home from work one day and a hooker approached me asking for a cigarette and if i got into lesbian sex,I just could not beleive it, princeton town is a horrible place to live and especially with children, and yes the mountain dew bottles REALLY do mean open for business,no joke!! when i first moved there me and my 4 year old son would walk to the store and i would buy a mt.dew to drink on the way home and you would not beleive the old men stopping asking me filthy stuff right in front of my child so yeah the mt. dew bottle is true

This is a funny topic!!!
All I have to say it the oldest profession and nothing one can do will stop it.
But the best thing to do is just ignore it if one or you can...

You are so right about it being around since the dawn of day.'In germany its legal and the hookers get tested every 6 mmonths to make sure they are clean. but at least they are paying taxes .

They don't walk the streets in Germany. And I don't know anyone here who cares what you do in your house. But to walk up and down the streets isn't the way you are supposed to do things. One of my kin people came back from Germany and said they had a place to go and that palsce only..
Let me ask you this..
Do you see a club putting a table in their parking lot and selling Liquor in front of the public in plain site? How about Walmart setting up a certain place for beer like they do flowers and Garden ? No one would know what goes on if theye didn't do it right in front of the whole County. These people have houses somewhere i think. Why don't they use them instead of wearing out their knees on that pavement, and costing the Tax Payers for knee replacements? No honest person want's to see that go on, and most of the people doing it are obviously addicted to drugs, they are too skinny. Not to mention Aid's From what I hear is spreading in Mercer county.
When the police pick them up might be a good Idea to have a blood test run if possible.
I do know the police are trying to get it under controle, but since they have a drug court, why not a prostitution court, let the hookers pay for it in fines or stiff jail time.
A tell tell sign of Meth users after a while is them going around wipeing their eyes, Ive see that a lot on Mercer street, not to mention them walkiing across the road and bot even worrying about cars coming in Both directions.. If I didn't know better I'd think they was doing Insurance jobs. J walking is a crime too.

hey I live on Harrison Street and they come down there to be dropped and picked up ,but have really started slowing down a lot though since I started taking pic of the cars and trucks they r climbing in even got a few lic. plate numbers too, and yes i have seen them yell at cars passing by,and we cant blame the problem on the cops they pick them up but the courts let them out as fast as they go in
