 "the collection and vouchering of condoms as evidence by members of your department" in such cases in Brooklyn "should immediately cease."

About damn frelling time . Charles J. Hynes - I dont often compliment DAs, but- that took guts and I thank you for this . Good on you.

Condoms are "evidence of prostitution"? You may as well seize their short skirts, high heels, and their vaginas while you're at it, you nitwit 1950s throwbacks.

For the sake of clarity, that comment was directed at every DA BEFORE the guy in TFA, who obviously has at least a modicum of sense.

So your saying that taking the condoms from the prostitutes WONT make them go out of business??? if anything the cops should have been giving them condoms when they arrest them.

Well, it goes back to an article about trans folks afraid of even having a single condom . For fear of arrest. Some folks like hiv to keep spreading. I am not one of them .

No clue I never heard about this but again sorry for my earlier typo, but wow really condoms should be more widely dispersed and well back in the day I went to bars that had free ones in a big bowl at the door.

Let me put this in a way you might understand when you are older- Sometimes vice does good things, like, idk, busting pimps using young kids for prostitution. Sometimes .

thats what i get for taking a big pipe rip and changing the cats water. Yes- we are in agreement. Although I dont like the very idea of anyone sold into sexual slavery, even if they are adults ( No, consentual bdsm bbq stuff doesnt count, I mean unwilling )

This.

Vice laws and those who write, support, and enforce them are the scum of the Earth. How bad is a prostitute for your town? The guy would see one arrested is twice as bad for society. Drugs, smoking, drinking, gambling, whoring: all of these work perfectly fine in otherwise civilized societies when legalized. The problems associated with them all stem from black markets.
