Draft Guidance To Police To Stop Raiding Brothels

3 posts in this topic

Sky News has 'llearned' that a new draft guidance to the police is directing them towards viewing sex workers as victims, not criminals and may stop police raids on brothels!

Well firstly, many sex workers are neither victim nor crimnal in any way.

Secondly, it may pave the way for criminalising of the punter, look at the skewed reference for the parliamentary enquiry into this, recently set up.

Thirdly, they should not be raiding brothels unless there are other issues in the first place.

Fourthly, End Demand activists are stating it's not the polices' job to 'manage' prostitutuion, but to end it as they say it's exploitation and slavery (they would say that, wouldn't they?).

Fifthy, as it's Sky News what does that multimillionaire Jerry Hall see in that multibillionaire and Sky magnate, Rupert Murdoch?:D

Even if they do criminalise we probably have nothing to fear. Where are the 1000s of arrests in Northern Ireland over paying for sex? The main problem with the police is we don't have one. We have regional law enforcement at the whim of whatever the Chief thinks is important. For e.g. in Manchester(GMP) they are very relaxed about brothels but Leeds(WYP) almost zero tolerance in the city centre. However they have a managed zone in Holbeck even though kerb crawling is illegal and can be fined up to £1000. Currently as the law stands both forces are failing to enforce these laws.

My opinion the police need to root out the sex perverts amongst their own ranks even if retired.

Reading through the Sky story, I thought this quote from National Ugly Mugs CEO Alex Feis-Bryce was worth highlighting:

"Sex workers are often targeted by dangerous individuals but, due to the lack of trust in the police and the fact that aspects of their work is criminalised, three quarters don’t report these crimes to the police.

"This means that dangerous offenders get away with their crimes. The evidence is clear that police enforcement, whether it is focused on sex workers, their clients or on closing indoor sex work premises, only serves to further damage the fragile relationship with the police and forces sex workers further underground into less safe working environments....."
