...and the dirty, fat, disease spreading $%&@s over at USASG didn't take long to realize we were watching them.

The amazing part is they really can insist with a straight face they're not hurting anyone or anything and that we all should just mind our own business. Sorry guys...your right to throw a punch stops at my chin, and if you're empowering the drug trade, you're hurting all of us.

THE hst2 CHALLENGE:

...if you REALLY believe that [that you'll be less fearful if disarmed and forswear the use of force in self defense], come down to my neighborhood. Help me cleanup Pigtown this weekend and help me surveil drug dealers. You wear a shirt that says "I AM UNARMED" while you do it. I'll have my ballistic vest and sidearm. We'll see who really feels safer when four or five Bloods come around the corner :)

Any bets on whether he'll accept? :D

Are the city police really that ineffective that the citizens need to resort to this? What happened to undercover female officers and putting these guys behind bars? Did they quit after a certain local news man was busted?

I love to watch Fox News because conservatives are much more interesting to watch. They make good TV. Just look at this clip.

Any video?? If so, the link didn't work.

BTW, the city could care less about ho's and Johns. There is one unit with maybe 6 or 8 folks who do that stuff. EVERYTHING is now geared toward reducing the homicide rate and shootings because THAT is what the bosses ask about at Comstat.

They don't ask about ho's at Comstat unless they are dead. They aren't even a stat!!

Yup, the USASG guys don't like everyday folk even knowing about that message board...so I like everyone knowing it's there :).

There are individuals who work for BPD who head up vice units that I'm in touch with...and they do *get it*. Prostitution powers the drug trade in many areas, including Pigtown, BP, Patterson Park areas. Deflate it and you deflate the drug trade and slow down murders.

Take care of the little stuff and the big stuff takes care of itself. I hate to admit Rudy Giuliani is right about anything, but he was right about that.

So yes, there is a site where the disgusting old men (and almost to a tee, these guys picking up the toothless hookers are 45-70, driving beater vehicles, and generally old fat white guys with a few old fat black guys thrown in...have had one Hispanic, a few Indians/Pakistanis, and even some Asians...being a john has no ethnic boundaries, though most of them are white) trade notes on which toothless addict woman is best to take advantage of.

These women are victims of their own addiction and a society that doesn't treat addiction very well. The problems that face Baltimore won't get better as long as we look the other way while the johns do their thing. Period.

I doubt that GP thinks his group can stop prostitution but they can get it out of their neighborhood. Crime thrives where it is tolerated. I am going to go out on a limb and guess that there are not hookers walking the street in front of your house or your child's school.

There are parts of Nevada that don't have that problem at all. But those areas have also legalized prostitution.

Like we said we're going to make it go away. Reading comp issues? :rolleyes:

We never said we're going to make it go away. But we have in the past and will again in the future make it stop happening in broad daylight on streets in our neighborhood.

I don't doubt nor care whether it happens elsewhere--but it doesn't have to happen where it does in Pigtown, right next to a school and church on Ward and Bayard. They can take it elsewhere.

The difference between making it go away and making it go away from here is obvious to anyone who isn't an idiot. It never fails...start doing something positive for Baltimore and there'll be an anonymous clown sounding off about how you shouldn't be. I think some people get their negativity delivered intravenously.

More power to you. I'm just shocked that the people you pay all those sky high taxes to, city government, can't or won't do anything about it.

So as long as it's gone from your view and area, you could care less if it's happening next to somebody else's school and church? Just wanted to clarify where you really stand on this issue.

Why can't it be regulated and legalized like in other places? Why not tax it to pay for healthcare for the women involved and have it sanctioned in specifically zoned areas?

In the meantime, why not take it down the street to the abandoned industrialized areas of Carroll Camden where there are no schools and churches? There are a lot of places it can go besides here that aren't residential where it wouldn't really be an eyesore or a problem...the problem is the johns in question (who, BTW, have a fondness for screen names from The Big Lebowski...coincidence, I'm sure) and the girls have refused to go where no one will care. They *like* being here. Time for them to go where people don't care and away from places were people do.

And yes...my neighborhood is my responsibility, your neighborhood is yours. My primary concern is getting it out of mine. What's wrong with that? I can't stop drug addiction and prostitution wholesale even if I wanted to. I can't fix everything that ails Baltimore single-handedly (well...I probably could if appointed dictator, but I'm a little busy to plan a coup) and I'm pretty clearly not suggesting I can save all of you and solve all your problems, dear fellow Baltimoreans. I'm simply saying I can save the six block radius from my house with the help of BPD. If everyone did the same and gave a **** about where they lived...Baltimore would be a lot better off.

So if it is legalized you would be fine with a brothel next door as long as it is legal???

Street prostitution is a _very_ different beast than brothels even though they are superficially "the same business".

FWIW, I understand that most prostitution is discreetly mediated through phone/internet contacts. While distasteful, such activity is not readily visible and detrimental to a neighborhood.

Street prostitution is what you have when someone reaches the end of their rope as far as drug addiction is concerned.

Pretty sure the zoning board wouldn't put brothels right next door. Why not put it where the Block is (from what I read, it's pretty much already a red light district where you can have sex and beejays in the backroom anyway...so what's the big deal?) or in an industrial district (like I said a few times already)? There are plenty of abandoned or under utilized industrial areas in this town...it ain't like we have hookers next door because we're running out of places for them. Duh. But yeah, had I choice between regulated and taxed prostitution vs street hooker addicts...it's not a hard choice. I'd rather see prostitution regulated, taxed, and the women involved receiving healthcare than having them hobbing knobs in front of my neighbor's house in broad daylight and then spending the $10 spot on crack in my alley.

FWIW, you're positing a rather obviously false dichotomy there. It's not either or.

And I was just pointing out I wasn't posing the situation you apparently thought I was...body shops and rendering plants are legal too, that doesn't mean you want them next door.

In the end I do think legalized prostitution is the right way to go. It will never go away. Why not regulate and tax it?
