    Maybe they should sort out this type of behaviour first instead of rushing through legislation to prosecute respectful clients who treat the women with respect unlike these pigs

    In the "Independent " link , it mentions PSNI using Landrovers in raids.
    I remember hearing someone say she landed in an apartment that was known to be iffy/watched but she wasn't told.On her 1st day she was raided with 4 or 5 Landrovers closing off part of the street.

    I'm not sure of which link you're referring to, but to be fair that sounds more like the area than the job the peelers were on. In West/North Belfast or Derry that'd be the norm for any sort of search or arrest. Because you can guarantee within 23 seconds of them landing several dozen people too ill to work will be sprinting their way there to protest.

    About escorts' experiences of police.Just a passing mention of PSNI land rovers used in raids reminded me of what someone once said.

    Prostitute claims garda demanded sex for laptop

    Almost half (48.7pc) said they had garda clients

    A Garda forced a prostitute to perform a sexual act on him in order to have her laptop computer returned to her after it had been seized in a raid, a sex worker has claimed in a survey to determine experiences with policing in Ireland. The survey of 86 sex workers was carried out in the Republic and Northern Ireland earlier this year.


    Almost half (48.7pc) said they had garda clients and 2.7pc said they had provided 'free or discounted' sexual services to officers. They generally had positive experiences in their dealings with the gardai and PSNI, but complained of the PSNI's use of large numbers of uniformed officers and marked Land Rovers when carrying out raids. A number also accused the PSNI of racism and some also felt the same about gardai.
    The purpose of the survey, by the agency Uglymugs.ie, was to establish how sex workers viewed policing in Ireland given plans to introduce new laws which will effectively criminalise the entire sex trade. Such a law, to be introduced in Northern Ireland, also on its way in the Republic, will make it an offence for someone to pay for sex.
    Uglymugs, which provides an online forum for sex workers to exchange information about dangerous clients, carried out another survey last year which showed low levels of confidence in gardai among sex workers.
    While the 86 participants in the latest survey mainly had a positive view a number made disturbing claims. The sex worker who made the allegation about a male garda demanding a sexual service to have her mobile phone and laptop returned said she was speaking about a friend she had been working with in a provincial town.
    She wrote: "l and another girl were quizzed and they took my friend's computer and her phone. The next day the garda asked her to [perform a sex act] without a condom. She was happy to get her computer back for doing this service."
    Another who spoke of negative experiences with gardai also claimed to have been forced to perform sex by a garda. She replied to the questionnaire: "I was kicked out over 10 times by guards from lots of places, but have never been beaten. If you work alone they will leave you, but if you are two or more girls they tell you to leave or detain you. The next day after a raid, one of the gardas come back on his own and forced me to have sex with him. He was disgusting man."
    Another commented: "I called the garda after being attacked by three guys. Two garda officers turned up but they were not interested in catching these guys." Another sex worker said: "I had a problem with a racist guy. He didn't like me because of what I do for a living and he threatened to kill me in front of my house. The police came, but they didn't do anything even though there were almost 30 people in my yard."
    Positive comments included: "A guy tried to rob me. I had no money in the house. He attacked me and left me with bruises all over. I called the gardai and within 15 minutes they were at my place. They were very helpful and the guy is due in court now." And: "I never had any problem with garda. Once I had a chat with a garda woman and I said to her what kind of job I was doing. I did ask her if I will have any problem. She was really kind to me. When we had a chat it was outside of my work environment. She tried to help me if I was victim of abuse or mistreatment. I said to her that I was working as an independent and I was okay. I don't know if a garda male will treat me like that. I was very grateful for her kindness."
    The survey, Opinions and Experience of Police found 30.7pc of participants were satisfied or very satisfied with the garda's services whereas 28pc were dissatisfied or very dissatisfied. Thirty-six per cent felt gardai 'did not care about the safety of sex workers' but 18.7pc disagreed. Some 29pc said gardai were 'frequently racist' an 34.7pc felt gardai discriminated against sex workers. Some 35.5pc felt corruption was a problem in the Garda. Almost half (48.7pc) had received a visit from gardai which they did not request and 28.7pc said such visits were in the form of raids.
