Necessary to publish prostitution names?

I read in Nov. 9-10 newspaper how there had been a sting operation in a Kihei hotel. A female police officer posed as a prostitute resulting in the arrest of 13 men. Bad enough that they were arrested, but was it necessary to list all their names, shaming them and possibly jeopardizing their livelihood?

I personally feel that prostitution between two consenting adults should be legalized. Prostitutes should be carded with regular medical checks and protected by law. Puritanism be damned.
