One day is no different than the previous or the next...
On holiday weekends, men who hire women for acts of prostitution are not here in Kensington nearly as much because they're out with their families at the beach and other locations.
It's a stunningly heartbreaking system we have going here.
90% of all the women on the streets are 100% reliant on prostitution to raise money for the drug addiction that they would rather not have.
70% of all the men on the streets are 100% reliant on that 90% of women.
For the sake of discussion and easy-to-follow math let's assume that the number of men and women are equal...
That means that 80% of the money for drug purchases from the homeless population comes through prostitution.
If we started targeting for arrest the men with the money and not the women with the addiction, we might start seeing an improvement in this nightmare.
If we were to do so, the money source would dry up. The healthcare system would have to step up to the plate with prompt, dignified, and respect-filled professional care.
Let's hope these factors come together someday so that some of this sad nightmare can be resolved.
