Sep 13 - POLL: Should prostitution be legal in New Jersey?
 

 




NEWARK ó The weekend arrests of four women and nine men on prostitution-related charges has spurred a debate about whether or not paid s*x should be illegal in the Garden State.

Continuing a campaign it began this summer, the New Jersey chapter of the ACLU slammed the Newark police for the arrests, arguing that officers should instead be focusing on more violent crimes in the city. ACLU Executive Director Udi Ofer also said that the arrests "harm public safety by stoking fear of police among s*x workers, dissuading vulnerable communities from reaching out to police."

But, the city's Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose countered that prostitution is one of the most common complaints the department receives from residents. And, argued that it could not selectively enforce laws.

The American Civil Liberties Union is taking the city's police department to task for s*x crime arrests it called a misuse of officers' time.


"We address all complaints received in my office or by my officers regardless of whether they are minor or serious," he said.

NJ.com readers Monday had strikingly differing opinions on the issue, with some coming out against the ACLU and the idea that s*x crimes would be legal, some saying that legalizing prostitution is a good idea, and others arguing that the police are in the right, because regardless of what the law should be, they are enforcing what it is now.

"Prostitution is legal in Nevada, and it should be legal in New Jersey along with marijuana," save1nj said. "Tax both and let's move on to robbery, r*pe and murder."

But many readers, like Retired Chemist, said the ACLU was way off base.

"What about the people that have to live in the neighborhoods where this is conducted?" Retired Chemist asked. "This is not a victimless crime"

User nexus70 didn't give an opinion on legalization, but criticized the ACLU's a*sertion that the police department shouldn't enforce current laws.

"They should lobby to change the law if they have a problem with it," nexus70 said. "They should NOT, however, tell a city's police force not to enforce laws."

Make prostitution and gambling legal but regulate it and tax it. Stop telling adults what to do with their money.

Megamillions is over 100 mill and powerball is over 200 mill so if I win big I should be able to legally pay a perfect ten of a woman to have s*x with my ugly fat a*s.

Should be legal, why not? Doesn't mean there needs to be a brothel in every town

Also no jail time for drug addicts and include rehab/therapy for prisoners

No more wars, spend more money on health care/research

The new America

People arrested must have been privileged to even consider this.

Its crazy how being a pr0n star is legal but prostitution isn't, its pretty much the same thing, except you're not getting filmed.
