Sodom and Gomorrah were annihilated by God because of extreme sexual immorality.
During the early part of his political career, Mayor Lim of Manila closed down a number of sex dens whose lifeblood was fed by minors. What happened afterwards? Did other Metro Mayors try to emulate Mayor Lim to cleanse Metro Manila of street workers?
Maybe you got the credits confused? The credit for making Manila wholesome ought to be given to his Vice Mayor instead. It was the fruit of the effort of Atienza who is currently party list representative as advocate of the pro-life movement. Anyway Mabini Street was rid of filthy 24 hour bars too and removed Manila's reputation as the country's red light district.
But soon after Lim's comeback as City Mayor, nite clubs that match the old Mabini notoreirity opened up. Atienza meanwhile became a competitor for the office of Mayor, after serving as mayor for several terms and his brainchild, the baywalk was shut down because of neglect by the City Government which cited poor sanitary conditions and lack of facilities as excuses.
Today Erap converted many of the bars into karaoke type clubs masking off the lewd and often vulgar desperate street trade that run down nite clubs with aging staff got.
In a way yes. Two of my friends fell victims to robbers in Binondo area last week. And the robbers are still at large, most likely waiting for another set of victims.
Save for Japan, many older cities in the world got this problem due to deteriorating conditions.
