I have been under the weather and needed to take a little break from my rants. Fear not, I am back. Happy New Year to all, or is it?
“I never thought I’d see the day.” A term used quite often, and one that sadly applies to my recent outrage.
On January 1, 2017, a new law passed in California that bans police officers from charging minors with prostitution. Law enforcement will have the option of taking them into temporary custody, under limited circumstances, i.e., if they are in immediate danger or need medical attention.
So, if a minor is on the street, promoting themselves and appear healthy, they are left alone. Doesn’t being a minor on the streets for the purpose of prostitution qualify as immediate danger? Evidently just exposing themselves to beatings, drugs, and disease isn’t enough...
According to California liberal legislators, the minors are victims and should not be treated as criminals. Yes, they are victims, but if they are not arrested and sent to juvenile hall how can they get the help they need to get off the streets?
Thanks to liberal convoluted thinking, the pimps will be enjoying a bigger pay day, and we will see an increase in underage sex trafficking. I am hoping there is enough outrage out there to have this law repealed.
