884 Arrested In Child Prostitution Rings

Seattle, Tacoma, Sacramento, Minneapolis, Nashville… There is no corner of our society where this is not a problem. Fool yourself if you’d like, but Child Prostitution, or as I prefer to call it, Child Sex Slavery, is an epidemic.

“Child prostitution continues to be a significant problem in our country, as evidenced by the number of children rescued through the continued efforts of our crimes against children task forces,” said Shawn Henry, executive assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal, Cyber, Response and Service Branch, in a written statement. “There is no work more important than protecting America’s children and freeing them from the cycle of victimization. Through our strategic partnerships with state and local law enforcement agencies, we are able to make a difference.”  via Federal crackdown on child prostitution results in 884 arrests – CNN.com.

    Very powerful stuff. And like the post below this one as well alludes to, we here in the United States are turning a blind eye…or at least a heavily catacted eye…towards the problem. I don’t see it as an “issue” as much as a very serious problem. “Issue” seems to make it something other and something less serious than what it really is.

    Thank you for creating this blog, for being passionate about this problem, and for doing something about it. One major hurdle is first raising the consciousness and awareness of the problem, then turning the way the country looks at and approaches it.

    Thank you.
