Why are teen prostitutes "victims" who need to be "rescued" and drug users "criminals" who need to be "punished"?
Here's the story in the Miami Herald.
FBI Deputy Assistant Director Daniel Roberts said, "The goal is to recover kids. We consider them the child victims of prostitution." Well that's awfully sweet of him to say. Sounds to me like the FBI is codling prostitutes! Suspicious.
And if, like "they" say, we're winning the war on drugs, shouldn't we start on war on prostitutes? That would solve the problem. Besides... just think... if it weren't for all the prostitutes walking the street, my little John wouldn't have been pressured into sleeping with that whore! Let's have mandatory life sentences! Now that would send the right message and keep our streets safe. Either we're going to get tough with prostitutes or they'll be prostitutes in your neighborhood!
They say sarcasm doesn't translate well into writing. So I'd like to make it very clear.
