A Cracking Good Idea

I see in the news today that upon meeting with representatives from the “Unite for Children, Unite against Aids” campaign, the Dubai Police Chief vowed to crack down on prostitution in Dubai in an effort to prevent Aids.

"As a body entrusted with ensuring security, we will fight anything that will impact negatively on society," said Lt. Gen. Dahi Khalfan Tamim.

Nice platitude, Sir – but what’s wrong with cracking down on prostitution because it’s just simply ILLEGAL in the UAE? Isn't that what a police force is supposed to do - uphold the law?

Or would that upset too many Wastafarians®©™?

I thought that too - he seemed to be trying to find a reason to clean up the streets, rather than simply invoke the law. Very odd...

The photo that they took of him shows that he just didn't even want to be there!

Heard that before. It's just word play; things will always be the same. Prostitution is one thing that the 'tourism' flourishes on.

That's true - it's just that now it's on the streets whereas before it was just in the hotels.

There's a lot of wasta around the prostitution rings that's for sure!
