Of All Cities!

From the local NBC news affiliate:
State Supreme Court justices questioned Wednesday whether high school cheerleaders trying to flag down motorists for a car wash might run afoul of a broadly written ordinance targeting pushy Las Vegas-area prostitutes.
What exactly are these high school cheerleaders being paid to do?! They must be including a nice wax and buff at these washes...
Under the ordinance, police can arrest someone who "repeatedly beckons to, stops, attempts to stop or engage persons passing by in conversation, or repeatedly stops or attempts to stop motor vehicle operators by hailing, waiving of arms or other bodily gestures."
I can't imagine that there are enough rooms in the state's jails to accomodate all the freaks on the streets, let alone lockup all the high school girls at 'car washes' gesticulating on the corners to get you to pull into their wash!
Susan Burke, Silvar's lawyer, says that wording criminalizes totally legal behavior and could lead to the arrest of people going out of their way to get a date with someone else.
Interesting way to achieve a date eh?

What do you expect from a state where a good percentage of kids going to school have parents who are 'entertainers'?

Perhaps these girls are cutting into the business of those who have naked women on the billboards everywhere advertising for escort services. It is protection of free speech to solicit by billboard, but criminal to wash cars in bikinis? C'mon...

Hmmmm, under this law it looks like anyone trying to hail a cab would get arrested. Don't they have better things to do with their time?
