Scarlett A is for “Atlanta”

Atlanta’s city government has proffered an ordinance that would banish convicted prostitutes according to the Los Angeles Times.

The law would actually only banish them, including pimps and johns, from certain areas of the city. Great idea Atlanta. Natural law 101… When you see your neighbor’s house being treated for pests you better get ready to defend against them in your house. Atlanta’s lower to middle neighborhood’s better get prepared if this law passes.

    Atlanta, always sending their crap downstate. ;)

    That’s part of why they’re called “streetwalkers.” They can walk …to different streets! :-)

    Assuming this were constitutional (and I don’t assume that), how is this supposed to work on people who already ignore the law?

      The convict agrees to certain conditions as a condition of his/her probation. In Cali, and other states I’m sure, one of the conditions is waiving 4th amendment protections. If the police know you or have reason to identify you and find that you have a “search condition,” they are allowed to search your person, your car, your room, whatever you agreed to in order to stay out of jail. Staying away from certain intersections, corners, etc. are often included as a condition.

      I had an occasion to make contact with a suspect who gave me a false name. She didn’t have any ID on her but knew her DL number. I ran it and found that she had a search condition. The search ensued and I found dope. I arrested her. Upon printing her at the jail, it was revealed that she had given me a false name, the name of one of her homeys. Boom. Another charge (it’s not nice to lie to the police), all of which would have been avoided if she had given her real name (she had no warrants, etc.). She could have spent the rest of the night dealing dope in the cold streets instead of sleeping in a nice warm jail. And of course the arrest held because the search was legal.
