MyRedBook R.I.P.

By Christopher R Rice

We are at war. County after county has declared a war on prostitutes. They were so successful with their war on drugs they thought they needed something new to justify their over bloated budgets. Claiming to be protecting children they have decided to use the same failed tactics they used in their war on drugs and have issued a "Zero Tolerance" warning to all you ho's and johns.

I've looked at all of the prostitution stings they keep running on the evening news and it's always consenting adults, where are the children? First, they bullied Craigslist into removing their "Adult/escort section", then they seized MyRedBook and arrested its owners.

From SFWeekly: MyRedbook was seized by the FBI in a June raid that sent a ripple of fear throughout the West Coast sex industry. MyRedbook hosted ads for escorts throughout California, Nevada, Oregon and Washington free of charge, which distinguished the site from its competitors.

Annmarie Lanoce, one of the alleged operators of the escort advertising website pleaded guilty in federal court today on charges of managing the website which facilitated prostitution.

From SCMagazine: On Thursday, the FBI announced that Eric Omuro, also known as “Red,” admitted to hosting ads on his website for sexual services. Feds noted that the action “represents the first federal conviction of a website operator for facilitation of prostitution.”

Omuro was sentenced to 13 months in a federal prison, and under the terms of a plea agreement, he has agreed to surrender the domain names myRedBook[.]com and sfredbook[.]com. In addition, he must forfeit more than $1.28 million in cash and property linked to the illegal activity. 

Redbook was seen by people that use those services (both as a customer and vendor) as a safe way to conduct their transactions, very similar to Silkroad.

LE did not stop prostitution from happening, they simply made it more dangerous for both the consumer and the supplier. 
What we need is a completely decentralized, encrypted and anonymous system for these types of services (Open Bazaar). This is one reason the government is pushing so hard to eliminate the possibility of normal people using encryption.

Recently as last week the war was raging on as strong as ever, between LE and A sheriff in Chicago convinced Visa and Master Card to stop transactions for Backpage. Bitcoin is accepted on the site but Backpage responded by making all of their paid ads free.

This is what we need cops for? Sure there are examples of pimps horribly abusing girls, but this could be eliminated if it wasn't illegal and had to be conducted in the shadows. Nevada's legal brothels have no underage girls, no STDs and no abused girls. I thought we were at risk from outside infiltrators bent on our destruction. This is where we should allocate our law-enforcement assets? Our politicians pimp for weapons manufacturers which kill millions. Likewise irresponsible drug companies. It's funny what some people find necessary to get outraged about.

The only reason it's illegal is 'cause government can't tax is porn legal?  Get paid to have sex and video tape it and it's legal, why? Because that's taxable...if the government can't tax it than it's illegal.

Legalizing prostitution could remove the need for pimps. It could help law enforcement prosecute human trafficking more efficiently and remove thousands of children from terrible exploitative positions without sentencing them to detention. It could create a legal market for those who solicit sexual services but not enforce the misery of others. If we can look past our antiquated morality, we could see the wisdom of this change.

It can be taxed
It can be regulated
Sex workers can be screened for diseases
It would cut the economics right out from under organized crime.
For many unskilled/uneducated would give them a way to support themselves legally
6. As long as there are men and women...there will be men willing to pay...and women willing to accept money for sex. To think otherwise is delusional.
