If you sample 50 listings, investigate, and they all come up prostitution . .
How, now, will the police develop those 50 leads, possibly leading to the rescue of trafficking victims and arrest of their victimizers?
Will those heretofore participating in prostitution, especially trafficking, now cease doing business . . because they can no longer list their their < :( >"services" < :( > on CL? I wish that would be the outcome, but does anyone doubt that that is no more than wishful thinking?
We all know that the real solution is to raise taxes to hire more cops to investigate such crimes and make arrests, and to identify victims and provide them with housing/food assistance, job training and meaningful self-sustaining employment.
