Re: Hooker hell zone, Aug. 15.

I see this in the newspapers across the country every day and it 
works like this, first we demonize and oftentimes dehumanize people 
in the press and then we begin the persecution and violation of civil 
liberties within a week.

Why not look at the issues of drug prohibition, supply and demand and 
child abuse as the root causes of the "prostitution problem" instead 
of attacking people who need support.
