A group of children held up signs protesting prostitution in Franklinton Wednesday night.
The children hoped their efforts will drive out prostitution that they say contributes to other problems.
"We've been trying to tell them to stop and get a job or something. They just don't listen," says Kalvin Williams, 11, one of the organizers of the protest.
Williams' mother says her children have been frustrated about the prostitution problems for months. Last week, the children witnessed something that made them say enough is enough.
"The kids were playing one day last week and they saw something they didn't need to see at one o'clock in the afternoon," Nichole Bishop said.
The children used old pizza boxes, wood and markers to make signs for their protest. They took their messages to the very corner, Wisconsin Avenue, where they say they've seen prostitutes soliciting customers.
"It's unique, different and cool," says neighbor Angel Thornton.
Their shouts even got the approval of some drivers who honked at them.
Thornton hopes the next time prostitutes walk down West Broad Street, they'll think about who's really watching what's happening.
"There's kids that run all up and down the neighborhood. There's schools everywhere. They don't need to see you in little outfits making money. Get a job," Thornton said.
The kids tell 10TV they plan on protesting again soon.
