Oakland Launches Public 'Shaming Campaign'

OAKLAND, Calif. -- A controversial "shaming campaign" aimed at fighting prostitution here will include photos on some billboards of men who have been convicted of soliciting sex. The billboards will carry the headline: "How Much Clearer Can We Make It?"

Love the idea! I reiterate what I said when I called into the program. Put the billboards in the neighborhood where they live. If they live in Maitland, put it at the Maitland Exchange. If they live in Waterford, put that puppy at the on-ramp to the 408.

They wreck their marriages by their infidelity. They wreck lives by bringing in disease, especially HPV the virus that causes cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer. They wreck their families by being absent parents from their children and showing a bad example to their children. So by making them an example to the community we are showing that bad behavior indeed has consequences and we are doing something about it!!!

They should do this with more crimes.

BTW most pimps wont give a damn either way. Having a picture of them just makes them more popular.

I think we should start focusing on the violence in prostitution rather going after the workers themselves. I don't care how many pimps are taken out but in some ways the prostitutes themselves are innocent or victims.
