FBI: 69 child prostitutes rescued, 99 pimps held
Nearly 900 adults arrested across U.S.; kids ranged in age from 12 to 17

WASHINGTON — More than five dozen child prostitutes have been found as part of a three-day nationwide crackdown on the sexual exploitation of children, the FBI said.

FBI spokesman Jason Pack said Monday that 69 children were removed from prostitution and 99 suspected pimps were arrested in 40 cities across 30 states and the District of Columbia. Authorities arrested 785 other adults on a variety state and local charges, Pack said.

All the children found were placed into protective custody or returned to their families.

The children were found during Operation Cross Country V, a three-day roundup targeting child traffickers and pimps. The largest group of child prostitutes, 24, was found in and around Seattle, according to the FBI.

FBI executive assistant director Shawn Henry said the children found ranged in age from 12 to 17. Authorities are working with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to confirm their identities.

I am so grateful that at least this one sexual perversion is still prosecuted/reviled in this country.

Poor kids.

No mention of Somali gangsters this time, although there’s a link to the Somali article. I guess that forbidden word must have slipped out, earlier.

After all, they’re just doing what Muslims do. Especially Somali Muslims.

Mostly kids on drugs or runaways. At first I thought they were kidnapped or something.

In my world, every single pimp would have been shot and killed on sight - johns too if they were included in the roundup.

Sickening that there is a ‘market’ for this.
I hope they round up all the johns and prosecute them for rape.

I once saw this documentary about prostitutes. The women were complaining about how they feared for their lives and what the pimp would do if they left the job.

The reporter doing the job paid like a fee to the pimp to set the women free and drove them out of town.

He returned to the same place the next week, and the exact same women were back there. It seems a lot of them are drug addicts, but they tell themselves they are not there of their own choice.

I saw merely a short paragraph about the Somali gangs, stated they forced girls under 14 into prostitution in Minnesota, Tennessee, Ohio and “other unnamed places.” Their goal was “recruiting females under age 18, including some under age 14.”

Yeah, it’s not like the trafficing that’s going on in Eastern Europe say, where these girls think they’re going to another country to be an Au pair(sp?) and they get there and have their Visa’s taken away and they’re put into prostitution with no way home.

They will attend finishing school to compare notes and lift weights for a few years. When they get out, they will take positions as seasoned leaders of the enlarged gangs fortified by the tens of thousands more Somalians brought over every year.

I too saw a documentary on child prostitutes/runaways and many of them were from decent families with parents that tried to instill some discipline and impose reasonable restrictions. The kids didn’t want to live under their parents rules and have anybody tell them what to do. We all know you can’t say No! to a kid nowadays for fear of stifling their “genius” - or being charged with abuse.

A lot of these social engineers have a lot to answer for.

Are you kidding? With all forms of media pushing sex as well as the educational systems, sex is on the front burner of everything visual...and you are surprised at the demand of? Not to mention all the perversion mentioned in the news and the latest homosexual rant over the rights they demand.

Our nation is sexually stimulated at every turn and now with all the foreign immigrants who see the US as a melting pot for sex...no one should be surprised. ReallY.

Probably not even that - some will get a slap on the wrist and probation, some a mere fine.

I read a story that I posted on FB that there are kids who make friends with some older guys and then get caught up with being forced into prostitution. If they don’t go along they are threatened to be killed or beat up or their family is threatened to be killed. That’s here in this country!

The Everett-Seattle-Tacoma region had the largest number of children rescued for the third year in a row, The Seattle Times reported.

"Some of them are very young — 14, 15 years old," Steven Dean, assistant special-agent-in-charge of the FBI's field office in Seattle, told the newspaper.
