This is pathetic. I've been reading about the Vallejo PD getting ready to shut down and the city contract with the Solano Sherrif's Office to provide law enforcement. Vallejo's been going through a crime spree - and these clowns have the money and resources to bust hookers!? Please. How about going after the killers and robbers? These dufuses putting hookers behind bars is not going to help me sleep better at night.

Connect the dots and I'd bet that the trail leads back to the Bay Area, Oakland in particular.

Do some online browsing ;-)

They only put hookers behind bars for a few hours. LOL I love that quote by the one police officer" I like to think that we still make a difference."

We have had this discussion in here not long ago. Busting hookers really doesn't make a difference. The City of V spent 3 months preparing for a vice crack down, to make arrests and then have the same gals arrested the next day for the same misdeamnor offense. LOL

I love good police work and I am generally very pro police. But hiding behind planters and targeting parents dropping kids off at school in the morning or after school to raise city coffers by writing cell phone and seat belt tickets does not really make for good police work. Busting hookers, johns, pot raids, message parlors..........sigh**.... But the christian right is happy. LOL

If you catch some bozo racing down the street in a school zone....go get him. But to make hard working folks pay for the shortages in the city maybe an easy target, but is not great police work.

come on guys.

Just Crazy ! Vallejo has much more problems then going after a working girl or man ! Where are the jobs ? This is Part Of the Obama change ! Let's get real, go after the Cartels, Gangs, Killers, drive by hoods, illegals,! Yes it is true Liberalismn is a Medical Problem ! The FBI Can do Better then This ? Maybe Mr. Tiger Woods needs to do some golfing in Vallejo ! Then those Girls of the night will be paid a good wage ? The Whore Houses will just move East : Fairfield, Vacaville, and good old Winters ! Let a Girl Make some money ! LOL LOL
But then their are so many elected officals in Vallejo, now Acorn Community Workers can get some new business, and the ACLU will help those little acorns that will grow into good jobs for Solano County ! Could this just be the Best Little Whore House in Solano county ?

Is it true that President Obama and Nancy Pelosi will go to Vallejo, and give out some Acorns ? LOL! LOL! Will Mayor Davis walk the streets with BHO and HLS Czar Janet and Pelosi ? This just Might Be a Tourist Location, kind of like: Pretty Woman Walking Down The Street ? Maybe Michelle Obama can walk the Down Town Beat with Obama, and their Acorn Community Workers ? Then Vallejo will get some Large Media Attention !

Prostitution should be legalized, especially in places such as Vallejo where the central industry, the shipyard, has been closed by the Navy.

Establish a district where legal brothels can exist, make periodic health and sanitation inspections and tax the receipts.

Anyone wonder where the Navy has been having it's ships maintained since the shipyards in Vallejo, Hunter's Point, Pearl Harbor, Long Beach, Philadelphia, Portsmouth and San Diego have been decommissioned and closed?

Yup, you guessed it - the work has largely been outsourced to foreign shipyards, a trend began by Bush 41.

Unless America goes back to a manufacturing economy instead of a service and consumer economy, there isn't much hope for prosperity within the middle-class. And, a strong nation depends upon its backbone - a healthy working (middle) class.

Same thing, any time someone gets busted for a crime:

"Why are they wasting time and money on this, why don't they go after the real criminals?"

Then someone gets killed, the suspect gets arrested, and it's:

"This couldn't have been his first crime, why didn't they bust him before?"

Crime is black and white. If someone does something wrong, nail them. Doesn't matter what it was. Can't overlook one problem without it becoming another one. Prostitution's an easy one, but you can usually find drugs, pimps, gangs, weapons, and assaults connected. Why not go after the prostitutes?
Legalizing - Ha

Why would it work? Food is legal, we still have crimes involving it. Cigarettes are legal, we still have them being stolen, sold on the black market, etc. Legalizing prostitution won't eliminate the criminal side of it, it'll just result in one set of legal prostitutes, one of illegal working on the streets. Legalizing pot won't take away the crimes, it'll result in one way to buy it legally, but still more ways to buy it illegally, and laced with other drugs.
Think for a second people..

It took the PD 90 days to plan the operation
8 to 10 officers were used
They arrested 10 women in 4 hours

How inefficient can you get?
