Human Trafficking
The Political Panorama ^ | 06-26-2010 | Laura

“ The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of people who won’t do anything about it…” ~ Albert Einstein

Myriad of topics were debated for my first foray into the blogging world, but ultimately my desire to share information on human trafficking won out. Of course when most people in the United States hear of human trafficking their first response is to relegate it to developing countries and espouse N.I.M.B.Y. (Not In My Back Yard). However, human trafficking knows no boundaries and outside of the drug trade is tied for the second most profitable criminal business. An understanding of the definition of human trafficking is necessary prior to discussing the issue any further.

And people get all jumpy/offended when someone says we ought to go to Capitol Hill and hang the congressmen who say things like "I don't care about the Constitution" and "we have to pass the bill to find out what's in it" or something like "we should violently guard our borders [against illegal immigrants]" when it is, in fact, the people organizing the illegal immigration who tend to be involved in such human trafficking and the Legislature and Executive's turning a blind eye to the problem only encourages it.

While I think that changing the law as to how juveniles are handled might make some sense, I think exercise of prosecutorial discretion gets you to the same place.

That said, this is just another area where the penalty isn’t so much the issue, it’s whether or not the perpetrator is caught.
