    human trafficking

    The best way to combat human trafficking is to publish or broadcast the names and addresses of all those convicted of participating. This would include the names of the johns, as well as the pimps and prostitutes 18 years or older. If there are fewer customers the pimps and prostitutes can’t make money. As a result, there will be less human trafficking.

    The prostitutes are the ones being trafficked

    Nice to know that you would like to demonize them as well.

      Not really

      Well, not “nice” to know that people want to demonize them, but sadly pertinent. I’m guessing that people who feel that way would have supported the original Dred Scott decision.
