Pimps Recruiting Underage Girls In San Diego Through Force And Coercion

@missionaccomplished...all I can say is that maybe you are stuck in the 80's. The face of prostitution has changed in the last 30 years and so has the uniform. So, if you are still looking for the prostitutes and expect them to look the way they did in the 80's...WAKE UP!

Your thoughts and opinions on this matter are outdated and insensitive. I will not waste more any more space responding to your ill-informed and chauvinistic comments.

DISMISSED!

Pimps Recruiting Underage Girls In San Diego Through Force And Coercion

Missionaccomplished...I am wide awake. I live on El Cajon Blvd and I see the prostitutes each and every day. They are not that difficult to point out, as you think. They are young and old, barely dressed and fully dressed. But most importantly, they spend hours at a time walking a 10 block radius repeatedly. Apparently you did not read my entire post. I said "I think stopping the demand is a key, but we also have to curb the push/pull factors that lead women into prostitution (poverty, education, unemployment, opportunity, etc). Don't just educate the johns...lock them up!" So, obviously, I don't think punitive measures are not the only answer to the problem. But I do think stricter actions against the johns will curb the illegal activity in MY neighborhood. I have had to chase johns and hookers out of my driveway in daylight and at night. I have found prostitutes hiding from pimps in MY bushes upon arriving at my home. I think I am very informed and familiar with the issue as it affects me and MY neighborhood.

Regarding the police responding to a call, I think I can tell the difference between a squad car responding to a call and one just cruising El Cajon. I have seen a police presence when there is a crackdown operation going on. And I have seen the police keep it moving when there is no operation going on. You have to understand that this problem is cyclic...when you don't see them on El Cajon Blvd in City Hgts/North Park its because the police have cracked down. In doing so they only pushed them to El Cajon Blvd in La Mesa. Then when La Mesa cracks down, they move back to City Hgts/North Park. That is why I suggested a countywide task force. It would join the efforts of the agencies and provide a path for real prevention/enforcement instead of shifting the problem around.

So...Missionaccomplished maybe you are the one who needs to wake up and read fully before you take someone to task.

I've seen these young girls working El Cajon Blvd night after night and even in the day time, too. I've had to chase the johns out of the parking area where I live, as well. I've also seen SDPD drive right past them ignoring the problem. I understand how difficult it is to identify who is walking to work and who is "walking to work" on El Cajon. When there is push by SPDP to curb prostitution in my area, they only move the problem to La Mesa.

Not all of the girls are drugged and raped. I think stopping the demand is a key, but we also have to curb the push/pull factors that lead women into prostitution (poverty, education, unemployment, opportunity, etc). Don't just educate the johns...lock them up! There should be a countywide taskforce that unites the efforts of all law enforcement, so that the problem isn't just shifted around like a shell game.
