Arlington police have been cracking down on prostitution in the entertainment district – home of Cowboys Stadium – for several years. Now, they’re looking to keep hookers and johns from returning.
The City Council is scheduled to receive a briefing Tuesday afternoon about creating a Prostitution Exclusion Zone. The ordinance would set boundaries that people convicted of prostitution-related offenses would not be allowed to cross, except in limited circumstances. The exclusive zone would last for one year.
The proposed zone includes a large section of north Arlington, including Cowboys Stadium, Six Flags Over Texas and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. That area also includes stretches filled with bars and cheap motels that have attracted drugs, prostitution and other crime for year.
Say it ain't so. This is the Cowboys, for crying out loud. Are we the only one who remember the "White House" for crying out loud?
