Victimless "crimes" are victimless.

the victim is usually the prostitute.


Not always.

The woman mentioned in the article who has AIDS and doesn't use protection may have been a victim at some point, but she's not anymore. And yes, anyone who has sex with a prostitute without using a condom is an idiot and some people would say they deserve to get AIDS too for being so stupid, but they can bring it home to their wife. They may even get their wife pregnant and have a child born with HIV.

Legalize and regulate it. I think very few people would pick up a crack whore walking the streets if they could go to a licensed prostitute who has monthly medical checkups and is certified as not having HIV or any STDs.

"Are there any vice cops in here? You dicks. How do you do that for a living? I don't understand. I first read these stories and I think "Don't you have real crime to fight somewhere?" But then you think about it vice cops don't fight real crime; that's not their job. Real cops fight real crime. A vice cop's only job is to fark up the party."

That Sao, lolmormons.

So arrest the prostitute?

In other news, holland and portugal have no drug crime...


Sure we do. Technically drugs aren't legal in the Netherlands, we just "tolerate" them (best translation of the official term I could come up with). While coffeeshops are allowed to sell weed and hash, they can't legally buy it and no-one can legally grow it. Therefore every transaction has at least two illegal components, the grower and the fact that the coffeeshop bought it. There are weekly reports of grow-ops that get busted, but the police don't go after coffeeshop owners. We could simply legalise it completely but those damn holier than thou Christians in the House of Representatives keep blocking that. They are losing ground fast but it'll be a few more years until we have people in the government who can look beyond "drugs are bad, mkay?" And because of that we are stuck with practices that are 40 years (wild guess) old but aren't being updated to include the obvious benefits the program had. Sometimes it sucks being the frontrunner, once people pass you and are seeing great benefits you are still stuck in the old system. With the idiots arguing against expanding the legality we'll probably be stuck there for a while longer.

Just look at the bullshiat around the legislation that was supposed to ban tourists from buying drugs, it hasn't even been formally rolled out yet (just a few test location along the Belgian border) and already those areas are experiencing more street sellers, more crime, more harassment, more speeding cars (seriously) and so on. They are stopping the experiment but the coffeeshops the legislation pushed out of business aren't coming back because they have been zoned out of the city. And there are still parties who want to keep going with this particular brand of failure despite the fact that everyone could see the consequences. But that never stopped a moron from trying stuff "for the greater good."
