A state TV expose on prostitution in China's "sex capital" and an ensuing, much-publicized police crackdown has drawn criticism from the public, who expressed sympathy for the sex workers and suggested that authorities target other kinds of wrongdoing.Some voices called for China's now-entrenched sex trade to be made legal and to end discrimination against sex workers.A CCTV reporter called police to report that prostitution was happening in two hotels, but police didn't show up.However, hours after the broadcast on Sunday, Dongguan police launched the crackdown, which was widened to a three-month crackdown on the sex trade across the whole province of Guangdong. As of Monday morning, 12 entertainment venues involved in prostitution had been closed and 67 people investigated.
