According to a human rights group, the police in Washington are interfering with the city’s health initiative by singling out suspected s*x workers based on the number of condoms they are carrying.
On Thursday, Human Rights Watch shared the findings of a report that talks about common knowledge among prostitutes in Washington, as as well as New York, San Fransico and Los Angeles, that there is a “three condom rule”. The “rule” basically means that if the police catch a s*x worker with three or more condoms, they will most probably be arrested.
Michael Kharfen who overseas the District health department’s condom distribution program was concerned that this practice of arresting prostitutes based on the number of condoms they carry discourages people from using condoms and increases their risk of exposure to diseases.
