    Then go to the legislators and have them take the laws off the books. District attorneys have no authority to just refuse to enforce laws. The city refuses to enforce immigration laws also.

    april 23 2021 Manhattan’s district attorney announced this week that his office will no longer be prosecuting prostitution and unlicensed massage.

    Cyrus Vance Jr.

    I thought that name rang a bell: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyrus_Vance

    said Wednesday that those laws disproportionately impacted
    LGBT individuals and other vulnerable populations. He called for the dismissal of more than 900 related cases that date back over half a
    century.

    If he's not going to run for re-election, he might as well "go for broke": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PweN6Y07TlE

    He argued that dismissing cases against sex workers, as well as expunging
    the criminal records of others, would secure “a paradigm shift in our approach.”

    Then dismiss charges against serial killers as long as they stick to prostitutes...
