Researchers have concluded in a yet-to-be published study of the economics of prostitution in Chicago that the women claim they were forced to service police officers, worked more on holidays and varied pricing based on race.
University of Chicago professor and "Freakonomics" author Steven D. Levitt and sociology professor Sudhir Venkatesh of Columbia University are the authors of the two-year study of street-level prostitution in Chicago's Roseland, Washington Park and Pullman neighborhoods. ...
Prostitutes taking part in the study who were paid $150 a week reported that about 3 percent of the sex acts they performed were "freebies" given to Chicago police officers to avoid arrest.
Police spokeswoman Monique Bond did not respond to requests for comment on the study's finding.
The study found full-time prostitutes made on average less than $20,000 a year....
The study also found white and Hispanic men were charged more, while blacks and repeat customers paid less....

And the problem is...?
I’m shocked. Shocked I tell you.
Hookers giving freebies to cops. Who knew.
In other news, the earth is round.
“This could be said of all citys and all police forces. They are forced to hire from the general public just like every other business. Sadly 2 or 3 cops can taint a whole force.”
Is there some “other” public besides the “general” public?
The “best” part of this “study” is that we are being asked to believe prostitutes (criminals) at their word, especially concerning smearing those who arrest them.
The $20,000 a year stat also shows that the ho’s work about 4 hours per day. So work a normal shift or work overtime, there is some money to be made. Also, these are the lowest level hookers available. If a hooker was work off the street, you are looking at six figues easily.
Indeed. I don’t think prostitution is legal in Chicago. It’s scary to think the police are making “deals” with the prostitutes as opposed to arresting them. I wonder if they have made deals with drug dealers.
Moral Absolutes Ping!
So, what’s the radio code for gettin’ a freebie from a streetwalker, “10-69” ?
I know. They could make that or more working full time at a restraunt or as a desk clerk. Why destroy their dignity for such little money? I mean, it’s wrong regardless of the amount of profit brough it, but I have no clue why these women would do this for such a small amount of money. Consider all the STDs and risks they are taking. One of these men could kill them!
So out of one hunred cops, three have free sex with whores? 97 do not? 97%? More than 9 times as many cops dont have sex with prostitutes than do have the sex?
I wonder how may FOX empolyees have sex with whores?
A hit piece on cops again.
My thoughts exactly.
It’s probably just supplemental income to the welfare checks.
You can’t cheat a truly honest woman.
“So out of one hunred cops, three have free sex with whores? 97 do not? 97%? More than 9 times as many cops dont have sex with prostitutes than do have the sex?”
Actually, that should be “More than 32 times as many cops don’t have sex with prostitutes as do.”
If true? IF?
I am assuming you are a guy. If you were female you would know about options girls sometimes have when stopped for a speeding ticket.
This is to be expected in a Democratic stronghold, where nothing occurs by merit.
It’s twue, it’s twue!
LOL That’s true.
