PG County police are planning to live-tweet a sex worker sting in the upcoming days. Their plan is essentially intended to publicly shame and dehumanize sex workers under the guise of violence prevention (on the contrary, this tactic directly promotes violence). This voyeuristic practice has sparked a backlash that has provided an opportunity to engage with county law enforcement over policing practices of sex work. Call on PG County police to end their plan to live-tweet sex worker stings and replace such practices with dignity, respect, and increased healthcare access for sex workers!
