    Regardless of state licensed whore houses your always going to have 10 dollar junked out hoes walking the streets and plenty of business for them.
    Regulated hookers may be a money maker for the state, but I sure hope we (outside of Nevada) don't go that route.

    I'm not sure I care much about legalizing houses, but my point was more against the folks who suggest we legalize it on the street.

    You usually hear that from people who don't have a lot of street whores where they work, and haven't seen the violence, disease, death, or juveniles preyed upon.

    I'll just say it again, sometimes being libertarian can blind you to some realities - it is something I have to remind myself of frequently.

    Why would you want to seize a john's car. I mean the seats are usually sticky and that is just gross.

    I would have no qualms with a city or state making street-walking illegal. It's not different than violating any other solicitation w/o a permit ordinance.

    I believe if you regulated it properly, you'd keep the hookers off the street (for the most part) and in houses. They'd also be a lot cleaner.

    Live in Nevada much?

    (Sorry, it is the only place that I know of that prostitution is legal.)

    if i lock someone up in a car for any reason, i usually end up towing their car anyway...i don't really see how this is any different. we don't keep it, they just have to go to the tow yard and pay the appropriate fees to have it returned.

    We rarely jail people for prostitution. We always have a jail space problem, we just tow their cars and leave them standing on the street. And they have to pay more than just the tow fees, there's some sort of other fee. Same with cars picked up with drugs. A good friend of mine loaned an old pickup he owned to a kid that worked for him. The kid took the pickup to Portland and got busted for drugs. I took my friend down to help him bail out his pickup and I remember it cost him about 500 bucks, close to what the truck was worth and a lot more than a tow bill.

    Interestingly too, we were prohibited from automatically towing cars pursuant to arrests some years ago. There has to be some reason to tow it. And no, I can't explain it or justify it. They started that after I left uniform so I never had need to know why so I didn't care. But I remember reading general orders about it.

    Sorry to sound so ignorant, but my last 18 years, the only reason I personally towed a vehicle was to write a search warrant for it pursuant to a felony. I didn't keep up on the policies, I just vaguely remember having conversations with other officers about it.

    No kidding. The first district I worked after I got my time own was the "stroll". The whores were the basis for most other crimes that went on. They were the shit and everything else was the flies they attracted. When they moved into other parts of town, the crime went with them.

    I worked promoting and compelling prostitution in vice for about a year. Those fucking pimps were pieces of work. I'd have loved to have had a baseball bat and been locked in a room with most of them.

    I'll wait for Car 4 to school anyone who wants to legalize street whores.

    He is modest, but he ran the street side of the Green River Task Force.

    The northwest has had every bit of it's fill with folks who wish to legalize the street walkers.

    You wanna talk about call girls or houses, I'll entertain the idea. On the street? No sale.

    Yeah, it's a seizure.

    Seizing the car is taking it.

    Forfeiting the car is taking it, and keeping it.

    If they legalize, I'm going to buy a hotel and rent rooms by the hour. I will be needing some housekeepers too. If there are any problems, I know a good vetenarian.

    I haven't driven out there in a long time, but when I was working there were at least a dozen motels in the Parkrose area of Portland that openly advertised renting rooms by the hour.
