While the prostitution is not exactly a new problem in the 11th and K and Street area, Fox 5 ran a story late last night describing how the prostitutes have changed to morning shifts. Starting around 6:00 a.m., the prostitutes are dodging their usual schedules to stay out of trouble.
But a prostitute in broad daylight can cause some discomfort, to say the least. While this corner is occasionally on my morning commute, I’m happy to say I wasn’t witness to this offense:
But neighbors say it’s not just the sex. They’re also frustrated by what else the prostitutes do when they walk the streets. Our camera caught one woman leaving a client’s car. She walks to a bus stop and pulls her dress down to fix her bra. She then pulls the bottom of her dress up and does something too gross to describe. In the process, she exposes herself in full view of morning traffic.
I was wondering why I hadn’t seen any of them around the other night. I guess now I know… Note to self, don’t try to get in to work early.
