NY Police To Stop Collecting Condoms As Evidence In Prostitution Cases?
Prostitutes have rights too! A group based in New York City called “Streetwise and Safe” were in Albany lobbying for bills to make New York the first state to ban police from taking condoms as evidence in criminal cases.
Streetwise and Safe, also known as “SAS”, is a project for youth of color that shares the do’s and don’ts of police encounters and trading sex for survival needs. They predominantly service the LGBTQQ community.
The group calls the act of collecting condoms as evidence “unhealthy”. Right… because boinking a lady of the streets IS healthy? I digress… They also argue that prostitutes are carrying fewer if any condoms with them to “work”, fearing police confiscation and arrest. Apparently “get a real job” is not a message “SAS” has considered sharing with their clients.
