Metropolitan Police Chief Charles Ramsey, addressing an Aug. 5 prostitution task-force meeting in Northwest:

“[Prostitution] isn’t a victimless crime. The victims are the community members, the children who have to walk to school over used condoms. We had an incident in Southeast where a child picked up a used condom and put it in his mouth. He thought it was a balloon—he didn’t know.” —Sarah Godfrey
