Police Raid “Prostitution Street”, Netizens Not Impressed

From NetEase:

A prostitution street in Zhejiang Haining has been shut down. Happy.

June 8th, Zhejiang [province] Haining City Public Safety Bureau in collaboration with the City Council coordinated more than 20 officers from the Shu Cun and Guang Chao police departments. With the cooperation of the Nan Fan police department, they used five different routes to bust an entire street of ‘beauty parlors’.

The street is located between the cities of Haining and Lingping. Recently, the large inflow of immigrant workers has made it prosperous. The broad Yandong Street runs from north to south. Most of the shops along the street are two-stories tall and sell construction materials. However, in front of the health centers and massage parlors wedged in between, young girls with heavy makeup and scant clothing show off their bare legs, tempting those passing by with their sultry gaze.

After more than a week of undercover investigation, local police conducted the raid.

According to law enforcement, the “beauty street” has been around for some time, and has been a negative influence in the area. Although the police underwent previous operations, those in the area are very mobile and tend to reestablish themselves quickly.

The cooperation between the police departments this time hoped to overwhelm them and make the street completely disappear. As of right now this case is under further investigation.

Comments from NetEase:


Laughable…talking about busting a few small salons as if it were some big success. Probably couldn’t close other cases and picked the easiest targets to raise the rate of closed cases.


I’m just passing by getting soy sauce.


Haha, using these small venues to sharpen their knives. How come the JC is so useless when it comes to this? I know no less than 10 streets like this, seems like someone didn’t pay the protection money.


“According to law enforcement, the ‘beauty street’ has been around for some time, and has been a negative influence in the area. Although the police had previous operations, those in the area are very mobile and tend to reestablish themselves quickly.”


All this fuss for 20 something arrests. 16 people make up a “beauty street”? Many places have ten times the prostitutes and they never get busted.


That’s all they’re capable of, bullying these small hair salons. The patrons there are mostly people of low income. If [the police] went to high-end clubs, then they’d really be affecting “certain” peoples’ incomes!


Making up “achievements”, this too is police work.


It’s not good to keep this up. We should legalize the sex industry. Or the government should find other jobs for the prostitutes, and find wives for bachelors while they’re at it. Otherwise it’s not good for the stability of society.


Lou zhu, they’re selling blood and tears, do you have to write about it this way?


The prostitutes are too ugly. They were reported by their clients, hoping there’d be better ones next time.


This is the duty of the police. Not only did it take them forever to act, they’re showing off with it!!! Shameless!!!


An entire street of prostitution, and only 16 arrests, such a large street…


We can’t decide what to do with our own bodies?


Selling sex??? Who would buy it when they look like this??

Don’t get busted. chinaSMACK personals.
