MacTiernan to shame kerb crawlers


Now that police are targeting street prostitution in Alannah MacTiernan’s home suburb of Highgate, the City of Vincent mayor is pushing for kerb crawlers there to be named and shamed on the city’s website.

Street prostitution has long been a problem on the streets of inner-city Highgate – particularly along Stirling and Lincoln streets.

At a meeting of her council scheduled for Tuesday night, Ms MacTiernan will move that the city publish the name of everyone convicted of seeking a prostitute in a public place in Vincent.

If Ms MacTiernan’s name and shame plan is approved by her councillor colleagues, the names of convicted kerb crawlers will remain on the Vincent website for six months.

The city has long lobbied the police to crack down on Highgate street prostitutes. Several busts have occurred recently and been the subject of police media releases.

    Nobody cares, Alannah.
    You are no longer relevant.
    Your Transit Guard fiasco was your undoing and Randall slaughtered you in Armadale and surrounds as a result.
    300 ex-Railway Police, thanks to you, bid you a good riddance.
