How government violates our rights: from searches to prostitution
A few observations on how the government violates our rights. A 1985 United States Supreme Court Case stated it was perfectly fine for the police to search the purpose of a public schools high school student. So much for probable cause, and the 4th Amendment, don't you think? School adminstrators are the government and as the government they should have to follow all the constitutional requirements, that the police, sometimes choose to follow.
In a real case, an undercover police woman posing as a prostitute asks a man who meets her for a massage, if he uses condoms. Confused by the question, he answers yes. He is immediately arrested. I believe that is what actually happened. In their war on consensual sex of adults, as with their war on drugs, police clip corners. This guy might have just met up with this woman, for nothing more than a massage. The fact is, his reply was not consent for giving money for sex. The police set up the question to be vague enough hoping he agreed to it.
Anyway, it is strange that sex is the only thing or action that is legal when it is not done for money, but becomes illegal when it is done for money. Now, we regulate other things done for profit. You can give a hot dog away for free, but if you sell it you have to meet health standards. The reason is, to reduce harm, such the of spreading disease.
But, prostitution is not regulated to reduce harm, it is regulated because the supporters of keeping it illegal, don't think it should be legal, no matter what. There is an incentive for women to say that they are trafficked against their will. Many are, but not all. Since there is no legal avenue, than the demand for prostitution is met by those with little scruples.
The fact is, some women do willingly choose to become sex workers, from exotic dancers to full prostitution. That is their choice. It should be their choice. It shouldn't be the choice of others.
