Spring has sprung




I could twitter if I really wanted too.

30 years ago, I remember "8th & Rose" as being a reputed prostitution area, but as a discreet indoor activity (perhaps out-call), not curbside hooking.

In any case, it's just nasty. Unlike on prime-time TV fiction, these aren't hookers with hearts of gold, straight, white teeth, and a healthy glow to their faces. They are mostly hagged-out hazardous-drug addicts, with meth-mouth, needle-tracks, all sorts of hidden surprises, like HIV, Hepatitis B, TB, and a bevy of other time-bombs that you don't want to contract yourself, much less take home to your spouse or SigOther.

Here's another case where if prostitution was legal and taxed 50% there wouldn't be excess people in jail, and full courts, it would also save taxpayers lots of money. Its the oldest profession out there.

That is just down right disgusting.... Who in their right mind would want that???? I think I just vomited in my mouth.

So, in this case, would HIV be considered a concealed weapon?

ARRRRG!!!! said...

For an extra $5.00, will they play dress up?

TV cop shows would lead us (average citizens) to believe that when a hooker asks the prospective john if he's a cop, the cop has to answer truthfully, or the subsequent arrest won't hold up in court.

What's the real scoop on that, and how did it affect the arrest of the Ms. Clinchard?

Re: 8:35am

Hmm, how does a drugged out prostitute file her taxes when the income is a rock of crack? Does the gov't get 50%. Because I bet she smoked it already. Does she write off the portion she pays her pimp? How much of her health insurance to we have to pay?

Glad you got none on you!

Was that supposed to be an intelligent argument, or did you get that from a three year old? It seems to me that you described the current way prostitution works in Lincoln. If you want to see a current way that prostitution works when it isn't illegal check out Germany for one of many places.

Wikipedia -Prostitutes may work as regular employees with contract, though the vast majority work independently. Brothels are registered businesses that do not need a special brothel license; if food and alcoholic drinks are offered, the standard restaurant license is required.

On the same theme, this story made me suspect that the victim was actually out looking for a "sporting lady", let what he thought was a prostitute in his van - and wound up with a robber instead. It's easier to say they "jumped in" your POV than to admit to OPD (and your wife) that you were, in fact, out looking for a rent-girl.

Sadly, if you put a wig on the suspect, he'd be a more appealing-looking woman than some of the female prostitute mug-shots I've seen.
