Prior to Prohibition, which more or less rolled right into the WoD, illegal gambling, prostitution, and extortion was the norm for career criminals, alongside theft at all levels.
I'd argue gambling and prostitution should be similarly decriminalized, draining those illegal markets of their profits.
While it still happens, I'd wager a violent extortionist's and thief's jobs are getting harder, with the all the cameras around.
Freeing up police to investigate those crimes can't hurt. Without the massive profits from the vice trades, criminal will have a harder time corrupting police.
With fewer options and increased difficulty, we can hope that more folks who would otherwise become criminals will see legitimate work as the easier career path.
As for libertarianism being conservatism, it's not really defining other libertarians to state that the two ideas are radically different and thus not compatible to be smashed together constantly.
