Police say the letter is intended as an advisory, and is not an accusation.

I'm sure some guy's wife will see it exactly that way. Better start watching that mailbox, boys.

Better be careful wording that; you could be opening the door for a libel suit. Better publish their names in the Blotter...
 
2014-03-06 01:55:09 PM
Because prostitutes aren't people? They aren't allowed to speak with the rest of humanity? It's a stain on your citizenship to even communicate with one?

Fark you, Florida, I never run out of reasons to hate you. You're just Arizona with a better tourism gimmick.

Public awareness campaign that letters will be sent may do a LOT to deter johns for exactly this reason.

Just to avoid the whole "wife opening the letter" problem, they should print on the envelop in huge bold red letters:

THIS VERY IMPORTANT LETTER FROM THE POLICE IS INTENDED ONLY FOR THE RECIPIENT.  IF YOU ARE NOT THE ONE ATTEMPTING TO SOLICIT PROSTITUTION FROM YOU VEHICLE, DO NOT OPEN THIS LETTER.

If there were no laws broken, what gives the cops the right to send any kind of letter? If they're having problems associated with prostitution, then enforce the law properly.

You want a solution to prostitutes?

Stop treating them like criminals and start treating them like legitimate workers then apply all the labour protections and regulations that apply to other workers to them.

You can't have a system where it's legal to pay a woman to have sex with someone (possibly even yourself) for the purpose of filming it and selling the film and yet make the exact same transaction minus the recording illegal and claim you're doing it for moral and ethical reasons.

There are two things our brains are hardwired to seek out above everything else and that's opiates and orgasms. Trying to make either one illegal isn't going to make the demand go away. Instead focus your efforts on trying to make the getting of both as safe as possible for all parties involved.

Yes your prison industrial complex is going to lose some jobs, boo-freakin'-hoo. There will be plenty of other jobs to replace them.

Dinner and drinks and sex later is still legal between consenting adults is still legal right? That doesn't deter anyone.

Step 3: mail letters

Seems to me they need to send a letter to themselves any time THEY talk to someone of "questionable" morals. Might make getting information from suspects rather tough though.

My neighborhood, Pigtown/Baltimore, sends two letters to the house.  One addressed to the john and another from the city that looks like a bill.  They were finding out the guys would run home and get the mail before the wife.

Unless the wife is a prostitute, then the letter might be for her.

Which of course is better than in GA where the police just murder them and the GBI covers up for them.

The neighbourhood I grew up in started to get some low-class hookers on the corners. My mom was involved in a 'shame the johns' initiative that drove them away after a few months. Basically, they would group up and harass any car that stopped to talk to one of the girls.

Legalize, license, regulate and tax prostitution like other countries do and the problem goes away. Women get to work in a safe environment, no one goes to jail, court system can concentrate on more important stuff, state makes money.

Hell, let's see if I can sex this up a bit:

"Your sleek, masculine vehicle was observed on (this warm evening, which held the promise of excitement) at an area within the city limits of Sarasota known for its selection of delectable, experienced ladies of the night, whose skills would make you forget your own name. The tall, dark, mysterious driver or occupant of your hot rod / love machine engaged in flirtatious conversation, during which mutually exchanged innuendos only caused more blood to flow to said driver/occupant's already turgid organ, as sweat began to form on his palms and brow, with either: (1) a known professional (a goddess needing no introduction who has serviced Florida State's most elite and discerning clientele, making each feel unique, pampered and in control) or (2) a seasoned, street-savvy, yet unmistakably feminine undercover law enforcement officer posing as such a professional, having chosen this assignment as a means to continually act out her secret desire to seduce and satisfy complete strangers, driven by her blissful memory of her brief encounter with a strong, take-charge gentleman with whom she had an immediate, deeply compelling sexual connection as she walked back from the library of her private, all-girl Catholic college."

Which is why they are doing it... obviously won't matter to the single guys who do this, but, there is probably some statistic that shows a fairly high % are married.

It's actually legal in New Hampshire (more like New HUMPshire, amirite? ... *cough*) as well, though there are performance issues due to shrinkage. Cold up there, don't'cha know.

Also, been to South Florida much?

You're saying they deliberately sent two letters, one for the guy to intercept and another that looked innocuous, just so they could potentially get the guy in trouble at home?

I get they want to use the threat of that to cut down on the demand for prostitutes, but damn, that's evil. Makes me think somebody should have figured out whose idea that was and get some compromising photos and send them on home for his/her own fun.

A friend of mine lived in a neighborhood that hookers worked in. When we would be coming back from someplace they would usually chat us up. Not about doing business, just some idle banter since they knew my friend.

That isn't easy when the hookers are almost always drug addicts and drugs bring crime.  When something illegal is going on in my neighborhood it is my business to worry about.
Having hookers walk around your town is what I would guess the Zombie Invasion would look like.  Skin and bones, bugged out eyes, drugged out walking around in dirty clothing.
Good old S. Florida.
Can't the government just put some poison in crack and meth and give it away free?  Fix a lot of problems.

I've often wondered that if drugs were as bad as they are made out to be, why bother to punish people for it with laws?  Wouldn't the drugs themselves constitute quite enough punishment?   (put meth in that category...)
