Well this is a good start I suppose. The last prostitution sting on US 19 that I saw reported was in October 2012. That was six months ago. At that rate we are not even making a dent in the problem. I would like to see law enforcement hold a press conference and send a clear message that prostitutes on US 19 will not be tolerated. This should be followed up by weekly sting operations until the law of the land is established. Currently they are not doing enough to curtail the problem.

Their home addresses?! You've got to be kidding me. Talk about a violation of privacy & potential safety risk. These women clearly have enough disasters going on in their lives, public attention is not necessary nor will it "fix the problem". www.sbeezy.biz

By the way no booking photos

Addresses of people who are arrested are generally considered public record.

Nope. Addresses of people who are arrested are generally considered public record.

What about the johns, or does no one care about them? What about the lowlife pimps? I agree with everything AveryDay said!

If NPR/Pasco hasn't already done what Tampa has, why don't the citizens there ask for the same penalties. http://www.tampabay.com/news/publicsafety/crime/tampa-police-announce-new-rule-to-fight-prostitution/1215827

Take a look at the tbo.com article. It has everything: names, addresses, and prices I am assuming this is some sort of public humiliation that is supposed to act as a deterrent. However you can only be humiliated if you have any self dignity left. The only thing that is going to deter these people (johns included) is a constant police presence.

@ Tom S. Thanks for your linked article. I've bookmarked it and it will be something I will continue to talk about. Great idea and good research. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Don't worry, they are all old and ugly

It just goes to show you how much more can be done. I would argue that three strikes is too many as three strikes establishes a pattern. Drastic times cause for drastic measures.

What were they hurting? What the freak is this country if a woman cant even sell her own vajayjay? Who is the government to tell her she cant make money off of her own body? Don't you all realize what our government is doing? Prostitution was legal years ago and still is in parts of Nevada. Can't smoke a green plant that grows from the ground either. Its all about money. Can't tax weed and cant tax prostitution, so it is outlawed. I dont smoke weed or favor prostitutes, but I did spend my time in the military fighting for freedom and now own a business in Pasco. FThe freedom myself and sooo many others fought for is a mirage.

Who is it hurting to have prostitution on our city streets? You have got to be kidding. Along with the prostitution are the drug dealers and users. Entire families have to adjust when their families can go outside. Families end up moving out to where the kids are safe again. The only people comfortable with all the "traffic" are the birds of a feather. I just wish the cops could lock them up for a long enough time to make it painful for them. I am self righteous. Live with it!

Even in the most liberal of first world places where prostitution is legal, they do not allow street walking. Why is that?

Have compassion. You don't know what circumstances, brought them to this point, they may have been forced into being prostitutes. I wish they'd go after the pimps and johns, more harshly! As a female, I hate when I get stopped (sometimes followed) and asked if I 'need a ride', when I go for walks! Scary and Maddening! This has happened while school children are out walking home. Do something about the men that are involved as well!!!!
