Plagued by Prostitution, California’s Vallejo Fights Back

It’s Saturday night in Vallejo, Calif., a medium-size town 25 miles northeast of San Francisco, and the locals have hit the streets looking for prostitutes — not to do business with them, but to scare them off. Half a dozen members of a local neighborhood group called the Kentucky Street Watch Owls are out on patrol, walking the streets to discourage prostitutes and their customers from plying their trade in the community.
