Re: “Oakland Police Chief and District Attorney Talk Public Safety at Town Hall

Why not ask sex workers what THEY want to be called, and those for whom they may work, including people who drive them to their clients... instead of exploiters when the sex worker hires someone to be their safety net, why not call them the same thing that we call other people in other professions who assist in helping them stay safe? Why the language of the prostitution abolitionist movement? Isn't that how we get cops who rape sex workers?

Re: “Dan Savage: How Can Sex Worker Clients Fight to Legalize Sex Work?

Thank you for this excellent article about our clients. The so called Nordic Model allows abuse by cops who use the laws to threaten to arrest our clients if we do not provide them with sex, money or information. The reason that the Nordic model does not work is because any time you penalize the purchaser of a service, the laws can only be enforced arbitrarily and selectively, giving cops the leverage to extort sex workers. How about just arresting the people who actually abuse another person, when and if a criminal report is filed. Pursuing the non violent, non abusive clients, employers and associates of consenting adult sex workers means that scarce and valuable resources are squandered, leaving nothing to help the real victims. From 1991 to 2014, there were 6,251,076 reported violent rapes and sexual assaults, but cops managed to apprehend only 651,107 predators, leaving 5,599,969 victims without justice. (stats from the FBI Bureau of Justice Statistics, tables #5 and 69), Those who demand an 'end the demand' are ensuring that even fewer real predators are apprehended while their pathetic agenda to abolish all commercial sex leaves ALL women more vulnerable. http://policeprostitutionandpolitics.com/e…

Re: “Federal Police Officer Offered to Pimp East Bay Teenager at Center of Oakland Police Sex-Abuse Scandal

We've been telling the public for years that this goes on... what will it take before you understand that the prohibition of consenting adult commercial sex ALWAYS leads to this type of corruption? While minors should not be engaging in the sex industry, the fact that it is against the law means that cops use the laws for their own ends. Decriminalize consenting adult commercial sex- PERIOD!
