    No Steve. All the tax money in the world along with all your welfare and police state spending wont stop drugs, prostitution and gambling (vice). It needs to be taxed and regulated. You're solving nothing with prohibition. Making it illegal incentivizes profit and police corruption. You are making it a growth and boom industry. Fairfield isnt going to be cleaned up. It will continue to be a undesirable place to start a business or live.

    it should at least be decriminalzed. Are we living in the dark ages? Lots of people having sex all over the place. What happens if a particular gentelman isn't very succesful with women, or is disabled. Does that mean that he is not entitled to have sex, because you don't approve him of paying for it? Don't piss me off about the statement that prostitution leads or is associated with other crimes. I'd say there is a higher likelihood that drug abuse would be connected to crime than sex work. Sex is sex is sex, get over it.

    Too bad the police didn't go to the Legislature in Sacramento and round up all the prostitutes there. If they had, there would be no one left to pass more laws to tax, spend, and regulate our daily lives.

    Dear Barry, Is it you, the police or me that has a problem? To make a statement quote Fairfield is shocked they have a prostitution problem end quote, are you all blind? Try Tabor & N Texas or Pennsylvania & Texas or ah Travis & Sunrise day and night, hot or cold I don't know who is worse you or the prostitutes? All of you are full of crap.
