You’d think it would be simple to prosecute someone for enslaving another human being. You’d be wrong.
Changes to existing laws are required to insure that authorities have the tools necessary to expedite the prosecution of those involved in sex traficking and modern forms of slavery. Arizona House Bill 2673, penned by Krysten Sinema, is an example of the kind of simple changes required to make it easier. The bill did away with a provision that police need to prove that a trafficked person was acquired “for transport” to be considered being trafficked.
“This bill gives law enforcement a greater ability to fight heinous crimes like human trafficking for sex or slave labor,” Sinema said. “It’s a simple fix that makes a huge difference for public safety in our neighborhoods and offers a real solution to violence along the border.”
Kudos to Arizona. Thank you, Representative Sinema.
After my deep interest in doing everything I can to end animal cruelty of any kind, I have a deep-seated desire to do something to help end the evil of human trafficking. I saw the movie “Taken” with actor, Liam Nissam. But way before this, my detestation of using a human being in this manner was disturbing me. I would like to sign a petition or something to help. Right now, I am unemployed and cannot donate money. I can’t understand any form of cruelty. It makes me ill. I also saw the movie “8mm” with Nicolas Cage which was more deeply troubling to watch than “Taken”. “8mm” deals with Snuf videos. Some people will stop at nothing to make a lousy buck. You would think they would understand that when you use a person or an animal as just a “product”, you lower your own self-estimation. But they don’t see this. All they see is they money they can make. It’s really pathetic. I believe you should pray for these people, not hate them.
Hi, my name is Feliz and I just started writing a research paper on Child Slavery for my Honors Class. The paper will focus on the different types of child slavery, accounts/stories, facts/statistics, and what we can do to prevent/stop child slavery. I hope to expand on this subject for my Honors Diploma Project next year.
I need to conduct an interview for my paper and I was wondering if I could e-mail you a few questions?
Feliz, feel free to email me here jeff at zeek dot com
