This protitute that got robbed ae Motel..she get's what she deserves, only her " John " beat her to the punch. What is this girl
doing dirtying up our neighborhoods by sellinr body in our town ??

Let's get these types of bad apples out of our territory. If she was there foe sex then she should have been arrested by the Officer in question. Did she wink at him and give him a sexy smile and he set her free on her way to commit more prostitution ??? What's up with that ???

Wow is all I can say

Under questioning, the woman admitted she was there to engage in prostitution, according to Pleasanton police Sgt. Kurt Schlehuber. No arrest was made.

Perhaps the officers on the scene realized that there's no difference between selling one's body to a John and selling one's body to an employer. Workers within the capitalist system are all wage slaves, forced to prostitute themselves as a condition of survival. That some here would criticize this woman for doing what most of us do reflects how unthinking so many of us are.

I thought prostitution was a crime? Maybe laws are different in Pleasanton than the rest of the state?

Prostitution Research and Education:

Web Link

Trafficking in women and children is quite common in the world, not just Plutonia. I strongly recommend that if info about a prostitute is going to be made public, then similar info about the "john" also be published.

sorry to be the one to inform you josh but life is not always fair...

as for Plutonian Resident...grow up miss primitive...tee hee

This is so hilarious. The PATCH needs to shut down. It is so UNAWARE of what they've already reported. THIS article has MANY topics, not just the Prostitute. It listed many different things around town. Perhaps the editor should go back and read what they posted and take down all the other "around town" happenings since they do NOT pertain to this Prostitute Topic.

The PATCH use to be a decent online means of rhetoric around town. Now they are so pathetic with their reports. They RARELY get things correct and constantly have to to send out corrections. Isn't it easier to do it right the first time rather than having to waste so much time correcting errors that didn't need to be made if they knew what they were doing in the first place.

The PATCH is a poor excuse for an editor trying to find a name for themselves.

@sue, a resident of Valley Trails. Why do you keep refering to "the PATCH" when we are all reading the Weekly? Do you not know what online site you are on?

@sue

what if we don't read the patch? I imagine the same topics are covered in both Pleasanton periodicals. But this is the same with the Tri-Valley Herald and Valley Times, and The SF Chronicle and the SF Examiner.

The Patch is an online only media source, whereas the Weekly is delieverd. For those that prefer the get hard copy, that is the only way they will see it.

Regardless of what a persons job title is, no one deserves to be robbed or threatened at gunpoint. A prostitute was killed in the Sacramento area not long ago by some nut job.

Post a "Gun Toting John robbery attempt" topic and reference a pic or description of possible suspects to the "Street action" section of Myredbook.com, so at least the ladies can be on the lookout.

Cowards like this have even been known to impersonate law enforcement while raping, robbing and terrorizing young naive prostitutes. This guy may have tried this with several people already. Too bad she didn't have a gun to law waste to his carcass.

Don't you people know that on almost any given day in Pleasanton there are plenty of prostitutes present at local hotels. I used to do audits for a few local hotels here. I think the PPD should make they're presence felt at Motel 6, and especially at the Best Western.

My post was less than 3 lines long and that's what the lumphead comes away with? That it's all a right wing conspiracy? The level of intelligence on these posts is difficult to fathom. And after the union takes it's rightful place in the now settled strike, we'll have this soon to be unemployed, unskilled, part-time bartender expressing more of his sickness because he's unable to find an employer to sell his labor (body) to.

I don't agree that prostitutes should be arrested.

The names of the "johns" should be published so that families know that they are not safe.

Guess what people, woman who work in the sex trade have civil rights too. The police should be pursuing the bigger crime. If she was not caught in the act of selling sex than what right do they have to arrest her? Robbery is a more serious crime and that is what should be investigated. Women would not be here in the hotels if there wasn't business for them either and what right does the government have to make laws based on religious morality against people making willing transactions?

I do not support legalized prostitution.

Prostitutes, male, female, and children are NOT evil creatures. They are human SLAVES.

There is a huge body of research available. It's important to understand how somebody becomes a prostitute and how difficult it is to leave the sex industry.

Human beings are deserving of respect.

Cholo sex slavery and independent sex work are two different things. Slavery is evil and is illegal as it should be. Woman who are pimped and trafficked are not prostitutes, they are slaves. However there are many people who choose to engage in sex work on their own terms and they have been doing this since the beginning of time and it is legal in many countries. What do we benefit from putting them in jail and wasting our money and their lives. It can be regulated, it can be zoned but there is nothing to gain from confusing willing and unwilling sex work. I'd rather have my tax money go to education.
