In New York, a new bill has been introduced that would decriminalize sex workers in New York. However, the bill will still hold pimps and buyers accountable. Pimps are one thing, but holding the buyer criminally liable is an invitation for police to masquerade as sex workers, and then if the guy agrees, they cuff him. They use this game already in drugs. They go around pretending to be a supplier or a buyer with the same outcome. This is a recipe for disaster.
Of course on the other hand, since they will probably drive business elsewhere and few people commute to New York City anymore, perhaps the sex workers will be hired by NYPD to try to catch other officers who may be all that is left walking the streets.
