‘Police Plan Prostitution Crackdown in San Francisco’s Union Square’
“Sometimes, I’ll come out, go around the corner, maybe by Starbucks, and see, you know, girls dressed a little, scantily-clad, you could say,” said Pierce Jagger, a Union Square storeowner. “They might offer services, and uh, I politely decline usually,” he said with a laugh.
“The police may know about it, but there aren’t any under covers I’ve seen down here working it,” said longtime San Francisco resident Chuck Davis.
