HAWTHORNE (CBS) — Hawthorne police arrested 11 people on suspicion of prostitution, one suspected pimp and 13 men who tried to hire a prostitute or a police decoy.

The 13 alleged “johns” were arrested on March 4 during a sting operation at Hawthorne Boulevard and Imperial Highway, Hawthorne police said.

The larger operation started Feb. 21.

Police are seeking “stay away” orders against the alleged prostitutes, which would make it unlawful for them to return to the areas in which they were arrested, officials said. Courts have granted the orders against four of the women, and the other cases are pending.

    They should LEGALIZE Prostitution so there would be Tons of $$$$$ flowing through this Economy. Imagine if Prostitution is Legal?? They’ld have to pay TAX $$$$$ instead of paying their pimps.

    Most Prostitutes are UGLY but the one KCAL used on the picture above(one in white dress) looks pretty Delicious!!

    Sorta opposite from a club called, “99 Beautiful Girls & 3 UGLY ones”. In the case of Prostitutes, they’re more likely 99% UGLY ones coz you can actually sample the merchandise.

    Prostitution a victimless crime 🙂

    Ask any prostitute why they don’t have a legitimate job and they will tell you, they like the fast money, they like the dope benefits that come with the territory and they hate real work. Never liked school, home-work or any other thing that required them to think or work. Open legs / mouth…open purse…drop in money…they love it.
