WSB-TV reports that Atlanta police are developing a new tool to combat aggressive, cross-dressing hookers, which residents say have become a plague upon their neighborhood. I encourage you to click here and watch their report. An excerpt ...
Neighbors complained to police that cross-dressing prostitutes are aggressive and have them afraid for their safety.
Midtown resident Graham Balch told Channel 2's Amy Napier Viteri that prostitutes have confronted him on several occasions.
"I have experienced some who are very aggressive to me. Who swore at me, came after me," Balch said.
Balch said he sees two to six prostitutes every morning around 6:30 a.m. as he leaves his Myrtle Street home for work.
Balch also says the prostitutes leave drug paraphernalia strewn hither and thither - his 4-year-old daughter apparently picked up a pink dime bag and asked if she could keep it, not realizing it was empty (jk) - and that the Johns who solicit their services are also aggressive and scary. But don't worry! The police have a tool!
Lieutenant "Casual Wednesday" Kreher (he's a vice officer I GET IT) says, "It's a little premature to talk about right now, but it is another tool that will help us fight this particular crime."
Often police won't discuss their methods for fighting crime, but I'm just so curious about this fledgling tool. Exploding hypodermic needles? Wigs with razorblades in them? Feel free to venture a guess in the comments.
The Ferris Wheel sounds really neat, particularly the 18 story height.
