Busting The Johns

I just read an article today where in a police sting operation, 15 “Johns” were arrested for soliciting prostitutes who were, in fact, undercover officers. I applaud the efforts of this police department. It seems most of the time, you only hear about the girls getting arrested for prostitution. Why? Where are the dudes?

In economy terms, why do we mostly go after the “supply” but not the “demand”?

This is nothing new. Read the story of the Adulterous Woman in John chapter 8. Here it is:

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group 4 and said to Jesus, “Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery.5 In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?” 6 They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

My question is – WHERE WAS THE DUDE?

Now I’m no spring chicken. I’ve been around the block a few times. I am not naive enough to think that arresting these men will cause them to change their ways and never solicit again… but it might make a few of them think twice. And it’s certainly high time to go after both sides of the equation isn’t it?
