    Thanks for posting this translation of a news story.

    I’m genuinely surprised by the addition of the last sentence. In such a brief article it’s heartening to see inclusion of comment of the arresting of johns. I could pass comment on the fact that of all those arrested, well under 50% were johns as opposed to the service providers, but, I think more appropriate would be to question the inclusion of the photograph. Why not have a picture of a headless pot-bellied middle-aged saggy-suited old git stumbling around a rain-soaked neon-lit street?
    (Hmm… Okay, don’t answer that last one: it’s a rhetorical question.)
