UK Offers Program to Track Abusive Johns

We know firsthand the physical dangers sex workers face and how little police agencies will normally do to assist them when they are injured or sexually assaulted. As UK officials seem to understand, rapists do not solely prey on sex workers and abusers exhibit "a pattern of escalating behavior," which can impact both sex workers and those who do not work in the industry.

UK officials are trying to stop the abuse. Called the Ugly Mug database, information about abusive clients provided by sex workers is shared with sex workers throughout England. 

Watch the short video here. Imagine if US police agencies were so forward thinking.
