Dear Utah cops: Fewer prostitution busts, more theft prevention, please

Yesterday's D-News brought us news of another prostitution bust. Earlier this month, Salt Lake City cops snared dozens of would-be johns near North Temple and State Street, and State Street between 1300 South and 2100 South. On Wednesday, Murray police arrested four employees of The Pampered Male at 772 W. Spanish Oak Way (6130 South), for allegedly offering massage customers a happy ending to their visit.

We know the exact addresses at which these services were offered because the News helpfully provides them every time they run a story about prostitution. (Coming soon: A Map This button on their website.) What we don't know is where my video camera is. Or my laptop. Or my digital camera with the photos of Chris Buttars pinching Scott McCoy's bottom.

Crime -- the kind with actual victims -- is soaring in Utah. Recently, one relative had a car stolen. Another lost hundreds of dollars of inventory. A friend's car was ransacked. In addition to my departed electronics, copper pipes have been snipped right out of my new house.

So it's with a bit of annoyance that we read about police officers spending an entire day trolling for disappointed johns on State Street. How many streets could have been patrolled in that time? How much faster could response time be on stolen groceries in Wal-Mart parking lots? Priorities, please...
