The New York Times reports today that police in Nassau County, New York (Long Island) have made “more than 70 arrests since it began focusing on Craigslist last year, one of numerous crackdowns by vice squads . . . ‘Craigslist has become the high-tech 42nd Street, where much of the solicitation takes place now,’ said Richard McGuire, Nassau’s assistant chief of detectives.”
Duh. Had the police not visited craigslist.org before last year? Or did they only wake up recently to the likelihood that “Hot SEXXXX. Your place or mine. $255555555,” was a sex-for-money proposition?
The NYT article focuses on the arrests of women for offering their bodies for sale. How about some arrests of their male “customers?”
Same old, same old, from what I can tell, except that it is on the front page today.
