Cops staked out a Boerum Hill corner known for prostitution — and nabbed four would-be customers on Jan. 28.

Police said that four men drove to the corner of Butler and Nevins streets at around 2:20 am and approached a woman who appeared to be on the job.

One of the men began negotiating with the woman for intercourse — his opening salvo was $20, police said — but before the deal could go down, Officers Ronald Pereira and Keith Dsouza swooped in and got their collars.

“We’ve been getting tips about that corner, so we’re paying attention to it,” said a source inside the 76th Precinct.

Reasonable discourse

Aspen from Colorada says:
The economy, and our lives, need as much stimulation as possible in these stressful times. Free enterprise! Let the strollers stroll, the poor lonelys buy.

Of course the cops didn't arrest the prostitutes -- since the pimps pay-off the cops

I'm glad they busted these guys.

I used to live nearby, and one evening I was walking home on 3rd ave (in sneakers, jeans, a jacket and wearing a backpack--not exactly attire that says "I'm on the job").

Two guys in a truck stopped, one of them leaned out the window and asked me for a "date." I was totally confused and I just looked at them like "huh?" At which point they started to yell obscenties at me and speculating about what I looked like under my clothes. I was totally freaked out and ran away from them.

I can't imagine what would have happened if I'd been dressed in something cute or on my way to go out to a party or something.

I'm thrilled guys like this are getting picked up.
