Cincinnati Barricades A Road In Attempt To Stop Sexwork

Another article.

 

Police installed the road blocks Wednesday morning and already some are seeing more problems than solutions.

 

"Mostly been see a whole lot of people going down there and turning around on this end, turning around on that end and the only thing I was concerned about was the buses," says Nellie Pearl Allen.

 

She and her husband watched as more than a dozen cars unaware of the closure were forced to turn around in the street. One of them belonged to Bob Stout. Stout says is was taking him nearly an hour to get home trying to find his way around the concrete barricades.

 

The sexworkers and clients will find a way around them, the people who will be most inconvenienced will be the people who live there and drive.

 

I have a feeling the cops know it's an utterly ridiculous idea, but they just want to look like they are doing something.

Yep I heard about PGPD plans to live tweet a prostitution sting and will name and shame suspects.

 

They originally had a picture of a woman with her hands ziptied behind her back being led away, but when questioned they deleted the picture and said they were only going to target the clients (or "Johns" as they like to say).

 

And I don't suppose they will wait for convictions before naming and shaming, I'm guessing everyone who is only accused will be named and shamed.

 

Like I said about the roadblock this will do nothing to stop or reduce sexwork, it's all about the cops trying to make it look like they are doing something about it.

Perhaps next they'll start cordoning off escorts' premises with crime scene tape

Idiotic stunts like this pretty much epitomise the futility of attempting to police the sex trade

They did a similar thing years ago in the Northampton red light district.

By stopping a free flow of traffic it knocked curb crawling on the head in the area pretty quickly, which was a big problem in the area.

....and only serve to drive a further wedge between the sex workers and police. 

 

Not to mention the media, busy taking photos for Twitter.  :rolleyes:
