All of California is in the middle of major budget problems. The State has had to hand out IOU’s and entire cities have begun firing workers. In order to close a budget shortfall San Jose had to cut its Vice Unit. Vice duties were reassigned to another department, and San Jose police say everything is under control. However, the ladies of the night are coming out of the woodwork.
Two police sources told NBC Bay Area that prostitutes have even been traveling from as far as Oakland and Fresno to take advantage of San Jose’s less scrutinized street corners.
South Second Street seems to be a hotspot for this type of illegal activity. Community members say that once the sun goes down, the neighborhood turns into a gathering place crawling with those involved in the prostitution business. One local store owner described Second Street as “a zoo,” particularly on Thursday nights after San Jose’s “Music in the Park” concerts.
Anyone wanna bet that flights to San Jose just went up?
