Dude Puts Up 'Hookers Go Away' Sign Near His Home! Like That Will Work!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Virginia man has posted a sign with a special message for his neighborhood`s prostitutes -- "Hookers go away."

Corbin Prydwen of Roanoke said prostitutes have been standing on street corners near his home at all hours of the day and night for the past several years, WDBJ-TV, Roanoke, reported Wednesday."



I can understand Prydwen`s frustration, but the hookers will simply laugh at his sign. Streetwalkers are scofflaws, by the nature of what they do and who they are -- a simple sign won`t discourage them from conducting their business in a residential neighborhood.

Prydwen has also tried reasoning with the working girls, but that was met with epithets and the brandishing of a knife. If a prostitute doesn`t hand all of her money to her pimp, does Prydwen think that he will give her a lecture about honesty and integrity? Of course not, he will beat her to within an inch of her life, and she properly understands the dynamics of the pimp/ho relationship.

Prydwen will only be successful in running off the women of dubious virtue if he disrupts their business by taking video of them soliciting potential customers. He should also put pressure on politicians to have the laws against soliciting strictly enforced by the police.

A sign that reads" Hookers, Go Away"? Please!
