Oakland News Now – International Blvd: Oakland Video Focuses On Prostitution On The Street During Pandemic – video made by the YouTube channel with the logo in the video’s upper left hand corner. OaklandNewsNow.com is the original blog post for this type of video-blog content.
This is by Street Ed on YouTube, and the narrator / vlogger says its the first in a 10 episode series. In the video, he focuses on the long-standing problem of prostitution in Oakland, and particularly on International Blvd. In fact, Oakland Mayor Jean Quan held a press event with the Oakland Police on International Blvd, April 20th, 2011, and ZENNIE62MEDIA was there:
Now, we’re in the middle of the Pandemic, and violent crime levels are at all time highs. The video maker poses a question: should prostitution be legalized? Also, I would think that does not mean human trafficking. As noted in many places, prostitution is the process of performing sexual acts in exchange for money without the use of force, fraud, or coercion.
The World Population Review notes that prostitution is legal in many countries, most notably Germany:
In Germany, prostitution is legal and taxed. Germany also allows brothels, advertisements, and job offers through HR companies. Germany passed the Prostitutes Protection Act in 2016, which was intended to protect prostitutes by requiring a permit for all prostitution trades and a prostitute registration certificate.
The legality of prostitution in Australia varies considerably between states and territories, which each have their own laws. In Queensland, New South Wales, and Victoria, sex work is legal and regulated. In Western Australia, Northern Territory, South Australia, and Tasmania, independent sex work is legal and not regulated, but brothels are illegal.
Prostitution is legal under federal law in Mexico. The country’s 32 states enact their own prostitution policies. Thirteen states allow and regulate prostitution. Some cities have “tolerance zones,” acting as red-light districts, which would enable regulated prostitution. Pimping is illegal in most parts of Mexico.
Perhaps it is time to look at an initiative to decriminalize prostitution in Oakland, and at the same time, set up a program of registration for sex workers. It would go a long way toward reducing police costs and allowing crime-fighting resources to be focused on criminal activity that’s universally recognized at that, rather than actions that are legal in one country or state, and not in another.

Note from Zennie62Media and OaklandNewsNow.com : this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a YouTube channel. When the video is “liked” by Zennie62 YouTube, then it is automatically uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective here, on top of our is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours – is the use of the existing YouTube social graph on any subject in the World. Now, news is reported with a smartphone and also by promoting current content on YouTube: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, or having a camera crew to shoot what is already on YouTube. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
