San Francisco Is At It Again
One could argue that prostitution should not be criminalized, however such a decision is to be made at the state level and all local governments are to function under the state law, and the Feds must recognize and respect the state's right to handle this issue as the state and its citizens see fit. A city does not have the right to pass its own laws contrary to state laws.
San Francisco however, seems to see itself as a beacon of enlightenment to all us rednecks in flyover country (which for them seems to begin at the city limits.) No. The enlightened people of the fair and free city of San Francisco must never be restrained by the unwashed masses that are too ignorant to live in their utopian city. Whatever voters elsewhere decide, San Francisco is above it and will set its own course. The rest of the state and country is to stupid to influence them.
San Francisco is going to have a ballot issue on whether or not to decriminalize prostitution, by forbidding its law enforcement agencies from going after them or cooperating with out of city agencies against prostitution. The state law will be meaningless inside the city limits.
Can't let the rest of the country hold the most enlightened city in the world back.
What's even worse is that it would be very difficult under this to investigate and prosecute the horrible underbelly of prostitution - - human trafficking and forced prostitution. The activists pushing this referendum pay lip service to the need to protect these people but then make it nearly impossible to do so.
Maybe San Francisco needs to Secede from the United States and become its own little city state. After all, they are too good to be Americans.
San Francisco is like a bowl of healthy cereal. Just a bunch of nuts, fruits, and flakes.
Thank God I live in flyover country.
