Dead Wrong on Prostitution

48 hills is a welcome addition to San Francisco media, but on prostitution, they are dead wrong.

As I observed in my comment on the piece by Tim Redmond:

Politicians aside, the prostitution industry is an extremely violent aspect of organized crime, that destroys lives and corrupts communities. The Nordic model adopted by Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Canada, and France criminalizes trafficking and purchasing women and children for sex slavery, and decriminalizes the victims, i.e. prostitutes. Roughly 10% of prostitutes are in it by choice; the rest are victims of poverty and brutal criminal networks. Protecting the human rights of 90% of prostitutes is arguably more important than helping organized crime, don't you think?
