Saint Paul Police Department Biography

Position:
Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Homeowners and families are telling us that they are frustrated and threatened by the prostitution they see on their streets, sidewalks and alley ways. This section of the police department web page is designed in direct response to the fears, anger and demands expressed by law-abiding men and women of our city: they are tired of prostitutes plying their trade on their sidewalks; they do not want girls and women treated with disrespect by customers coming into their neighborhoods; and they do not want their children to view acts of prostitution enacted in public places at every hour of the day and night.”
