    Silly story, but really it’s a good case for decriminalization and regulation. This conflict could have ended in tragedy.  The article says he’s been flagged by sex workers as a nuisance customer too..

    Still ridiculous that it’s illegal to do something for money that’s legal to do for free.

      Yeah, like giving organs, or asking politicians to help swing your big contract. What’s wrong with being able to tilt the incentive scale with a little bit of dough?
