Here’s a link to a ProJo.com survey about criminalizing prostitution in Rhode Island. As of Friday morning a majority of respondents are opposed. The comments section has a lively debate.
Remember, there are several bills–the bill to criminalize prostitution is not the same as the bill against trafficking. My guess right now is that the bills outlawing prostitution won’t pass, and if they do, there will be legal challenges.
I say, let’s have our police officers drive on by and ticket all the cars. Parking is never really legal in Providence, you just hope they don’t notice you.
