Manhattan DA’s Office will no longer
prosecute prostitution cases

Original Article

The Manhattan district attorney will stop prosecuting prostitution and unlicensed massage cases—and is tossing thousands of warrants dating as far back as 1975. DA Cyrus Vance Jr. appeared virtually Wednesday in Manhattan Criminal Court to ask Judge Charlotte Davidson to vacate 5,994 bench warrants and dismiss the underlying charges of prostitution, unlicensed massage and loitering for the purpose of prostitution.(Snip) “This announcement shows that the Manhattan DA is committed to changing its approach to the sex trade by decriminalizing people who are in prostitution and supporting those most at risk of exploitation,” said the Rev. Dr. Que English of the New York State Anti-Trafficking Coalition.


Great timing, considering the huge influx of underage potential sexworkers who need to pay off debts to the human traffickers. Teach them how to say "Yes, officer, I'm 18" in English and they're good to go. Behold, the Marxist utopia others demanded on our behalf.

New York's obviously trying to get back their tourist trade. I'm sure that'll work out well.

Failure to prosecute is dereliction of duty. There are other, proper, ways to change laws.

So now Manhattan will be over-run by prostitutes and their clients. Peeing and pooping using drugs in the streets, and people having sex in the alleys -- yeah, that sounds like a lie-beral utopia to me!!! Yeah, that sounds like a "plan" that only a lie-beral Demon-Rat with about 4 working brain cells would come up with!!!

On the plus side, a certain New Jersey senator will save a pile on carbon offsets, seeing how much closer it is to travel to NYC for dates with underage prostitutes instead of the Dominican Republic.

How do you make the crime stats go down? Stop enforcing the law. The stoned mayor now has legalized marijuana, and he is begging the tourists to come back where the subway is worth your life, and we don't prosecute the bums that live there. The same DA is chasing down Trump's tax records, because in all the time the IRS has had them and scrutinized them, they might have missed something. And I'm a life long NYer who has had enough.

Yep, the criminals are in charge. Murders and random attacks increasing. Drugs increasing. More and more Mexican and El Salvadoran ultra violent drug criminals, and cartel thugs importing women for their whorehouses and street prostitution services. The script for "Escape from New York" was over the top fiction in 1981, but is rapidly becoming FACT.

5,994 bench warrants would seem to indicate the policy of not prosecuting prostitutes began many years ago. So I don't see that these announcement is much of a revelation. Cyrus Vance Jr. is a very obnoxious person, wrong about everything, unbearable, and should not be trusted with a job.

I guess we will be going back to 1970's, pre-Rudy Guilanni New York City. The Port Authority area, 42nd Street, and other areas will once again become full of adult theaters, hookers, drug houses, and areas of high crime. Time Square and the area around it, which had become a tourist attraction, will now be a dangerous drug, and hooker populated area scaring away the tourists. I guess laws really do not mean much in NYC.

Cyrus Cance Jr. needs to reassign all of the Assistant DAs from Prostitution to reviewing the Donald Trump Tax Returns and other Trump Organization related paperwork to look for a crime. They don't have a specific crime identified, but they need to devote all of their time to finding one! Maybe Trump signed in the wrong colored ink, maybe he stapled the papers instead of paperclipping them. Who knows what horrible cries could be found. Drugs, prostitution, hate crimes, rioters, arsonists, looters, and everything else be damned because Trump must be prosecuted for something! Anything!

Here in Erie, Pa, we just received a shipment of 150 'girls' - illegals who showed up at our southern border. At a distance, some of them appear to be mature. If you think some of these illegals will not wind up in NYC, pimped out, you are too sheltered.

As Los Angeles is ordered to deal with the nearly 5,000 homeless people living on its 'Skid Row', around 100 will soon be given keys to a small part of the solution: a new studio apartment. The apartments are small—just 380 square feet—but they'll be a marked improvement from the tent encampments that have mushroomed near LA's downtown. A federal judge earlier this week ordered the city to finally to something to house the 4,600 people who are estimated to be living in the area without homes. The first 98 people to soon be formerly homeless are moving into the studio apartments with private kitchens

President Joe Biden´s pick to lead the U.S. Justice Department's criminal division is facing new scrutiny over a plea deal he brokered with a Louisiana district attorney who was accused of coercing sexual favors from as many as two dozen women. A former FBI agent blasted Kenneth Polite in a whistleblower letter unsealed this week, saying he lacked the courage to seek justice and left victims in the dark about the 2016 case while serving as New Orleans' top federal prosecutor. At issue is the case of Harry Morel, the longtime district attorney in suburban St. Charles Parish who was accused of trading sex for leniency

For millions of young Americans, the pandemic has been a time machine back to the early aughts. By July 2020, 52 percent of 18- to 29-year-olds, or 26.6 million adults, were residing with a parent, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis—the highest number since the Great Depression. In New York, some 300,000 left the city. Many of those people found themselves living in time capsules: lovingly preserved childhood bedrooms, plastered in posters and magazine cut-outs of boy bands and James Cameron blockbusters, and tricked out with décor from the Myspace era.

Stocks slumped on Thursday on a report that President Biden will propose almost doubling the capital gains tax on wealthier people. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell more than 200 points after Bloomberg reported that Mr. Biden wants to raise the rate to 39.6%, from the highest current rate of 20%. The Nasdaq and S&P 500 indexes also fell. Coupled with an existing surtax on investment income, the proposal means that federal tax rates for investors could be as high as 43.4%, Bloomberg said. The tax hike would be on top of Mr. Biden‘s proposed increases in the corporate tax and the hike for taxpayers earning more than $400,000

His analysis, which is still undergoing peer-review, found that cities with BLM protests had 15 to 20 percent fewer police homicides than expected if the protests had not taken place, equating to 300 fewer police killings nationwide over five years.

A Minnesota jury has found former police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of second-degree murder, third-degree murder, and second-degree manslaughter. This means they claim to have concluded that they unanimously believe beyond a reasonable doubt that Chauvin caused Floyd’s death. Given the circumstances of the trial, however, it’s extremely hard to believe the jury was solely concerned with either truth or justice. It’s extremely hard, if not impossible, for any thinking person not to have a reasonable doubt about the outcome. We know the judge in the case refused to sequester jurors from media coverage and outside influences during the trial, and that the pressure conveyed to them was beyond intense.
