Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Columbus Targeting ‘Johns’ To Fight Prostitution
Columbus Police say they’ve traditionally fought prostitution with undercover cops arresting prostitutes . But that’s changing.
“We weren’t solving the problem as it was before,” says Lt. Mark Lang. “We’d been doing the same thing for the past 80 years, but it really wasn’t making a difference.”
So, Lt. Lang says, they’re increasing targeting “johns”, or men who solicit prostitutes.
In one month Lang says it’s proven so effective they’ll spend as much time targeting customers as they do prostitutes.
Lang says johns can face jail time, but it’s much more effective to send them to the prosecutor’s “john school” that teaches them about the social issues behind prostitution and its affect on women.
