My humble opinion Whatever needs to be done to ensure the safety of the women in this profession. This is not a harmful or predatory profession. Pimps, or those who coerce others into prostitution, are criminals. The women are remunerated companions when they choose to do what they do. That they should have to give up their rights to protection and legal succor is ludicrous. Do you remember the small town that was stopping people and impounding their money because "it had cocaine in the threads of the bills"? People naturally assumed they were guilty of drug offenses. Then an intelligent attorney pointed out that 60% of all bills in America have some cocaine in them. The point? LE does what it wants for many reasons. Sometimes, as in the case of violent or QL crimes they do so because of public demand. When it comes to overzealous prosecution of "prostitution" they do so because it is easy and safe. These women have the same right to protection as anyone else. Whether or not you agree with what they do they are humans and citizens and they should not have to be afraid.
