    FULL TITLE: Endemic rape, sex trafficking and appalling levels of domestic violence: Why the US and Canadian Arctic is one of the world's most dangerous places to be a woman On a freezing night last February, the body of 13-year-old Mackenzie Howard was found lying in the back porch of the church in the tiny, remote village of Kake, Alaska. She had been battered to death. In one of the world’s most hazardous natural environments, the real dangers for women living in the Arctic come not from polar bears or cracking ice but from the men they live among. Mackenzie...

    It started on the bumper cars in the children’s arcade of the local shopping mall. Lucy was 12, and a group of teenage boys, handsome and flirtatious, treated her and her friends to free rides and ice cream after school. Over time, older men were introduced to the girls, while the boys faded away. Soon they were getting rides in real cars, and were offered vodka and marijuana. One man in particular, a Pakistani twice her age and the leader of the group, flattered her and bought her drinks and even a mobile phone. Lucy liked him. The rapes started...

    "...many of the children who were recovered were never reported missing in the first place — by parents, guardians and the entire child welfare system designed to protect them. "No one is reporting them missing. Hence, no one is looking for them," said John Ryan, CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. "But for operations like this, these children likely would never have been found." He said better laws were needed to require child welfare service to report children who disappear. Right now, he said, only two states have laws requiring agencies to report children missing from...

    NEW YORK, March 21, 2014 (C-FAM.org) - Women rescued from prostitution are criticizing UN agencies and Amnesty International for trying to legalize prostitution insisting legalization would lead to more girls being trafficked, and transform pimps into legitimate businessmen. “When [UN personnel] work in a brothel then will I listen to their argument,” said one former prostituted woman referring to the newly-created agency called UN Women. “What the hell are they [Amnesty International] thinking,” said Rachel Moran, a former prostituted woman from Ireland. Author of Paid For: My Journey Through Prostitution, Moran refers to a leaked draft paper advocating for legalizing...

    Data from the Polaris Project and other research studies indicate human trafficking in Virginia primarily takes place in the urban areas of state. Studies suggest northern Virginia, Richmond and the Hampton Roads region experience the most trafficking. The Virginia Free Citizen reached out to local law enforcement officials in these areas to investigate the presence of human trafficking in Virginia and their anti-human trafficking efforts.

    Virginia Free Citizens ^ | 3/12/14 | Shelby Mertens
    It is difficult to estimate the number of cases involving human trafficking in Virginia since many cases probably go unreported and there are a plethora of charges that fall under human trafficking, such as prostitution, extortion, receiving money for procuring a person, cruelty and injuries to children and abduction. The Polaris Project tracks the number of phone calls the National Human Trafficking Resource Center’s hotline receives, but it is important to note that this is not a completely accurate way of tracking human trafficking because any citizen can call the hotline for information, and not all victims call the hotline....

    U.S. Sen.

In introducing the Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act, Cornyn and Police Chief Don Dingler were joined by leaders of four leader organizations who said they lack options when a sex slave is taken off the street. “We have to do more than that,” said Norma Mullican of...

    TYLER TX — U.S. Senator John Cornyn visited Longview Sunday to address a problem that is all too common here in East Texas. Sex trafficking is more prevalent now than ever before and the number of sex crimes is on the rise. The reason it is so hard to catch these guys, is because the internet makes it effortless for these criminals to commit these crimes behind closed doors. "The senator being here is a great help to us. It sheds light on an issue that we have," said Longview Police Chief Don Dingler. Senator Cornyn listened to the needs...

    The FBI reports on its website that "not only is human sex trafficking slavery but it is big business.

I noted in Part 1 of my series on human trafficking that ABC News reported in July on a National Geographic undercover investigation about sexual slavery, saying that "it's actually 10 times more likely for an American girl to be trafficked inside the U.S." than it is for a foreigner. According to the FBI, ABC reported, "they range in age from 9 to 19, with...

    A European Parliament report seen by Spiegel estimates that 3,600 international organized crime organizations operate within the EU.

Human trafficking alone generates profits of around €25 billion, while the illegal trade in human organs and wild animals makes for a further estimated profit of between €18 and €26 billion annually. …

    CHICAGO -- Human trafficking has grown so much, the crime is challenging illegal drugs as the most profitable criminal enterprise in the country. In Chicago, police are working to solve more than 220 missing person cases. A growing number of those are children being trafficked for sex. Police realize they can't fight this problem alone. That reality has given birth to a unique partnership. Fighting this crime wave takes more than a gun and uniform. You need a street perspective, and that's where community activist Andrew Holmes and former cop Carlos Rodriguez come in. Both now work as private investigators...

    President Barack Obama’s nominee for Labor Secretary has already been exposed for his connections with pro-abortion liberal billionaire George Soros, but he also has another pro-abortion skeleton in his closet. The Obama administration, in 2011, posted a new document to the White House web site touting its efforts to combat sex trafficking in the United States. But the document ignored Planned Parenthood — the abortion business where undercover investigations revealed staff willing to arrange for abortions for sex traffickers. Tom Perez, the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights at the US Department of Justice and Obama’s selection for Labor Secretary,...

    January is Human Trafficking Awareness Month. I didn’t want to let the month pass without telling the story of young Brianna Myers, who got herself caught up in sex trafficking before being rescued. Brianna was a 17-year-old honor roll student at her small town high school in Washington State. When she wasn’t in class, when she wasn’t cheerleading, she was waitressing at a local diner. The teen caught the attention of a middle-aged man, Richard, who would become a regular customer. He seemed friendly enough to the unsuspecting waitress. He plied her for personal information, about her life, her dreams,...

The 29-year-old Minneapolis woman was charged with prostituting two young girls, 15 and 17 years of age, who ran away from their homes in Eau Claire, Wiscconsin. The girls told police that Warborg kept them drugged up with, variously, cocaine, crystal meth, heroin and ecstasy. She also assigned them a bedroom where they provided sex for pay to dirty old men. Police tracked down Warborg through a cell phone number accompanying an online advertisement she posted on Backpage.com – but of course – featuring her under-aged lingerie-clad call girls in suggestive poses.

The protesters mostly were members of Occupy Oakland Patriarchy, a group within the overall Occupy movement tasked with overthrowing our civilization’s “patriarchy.” The conference which so infuriated them was called HEAT Watch, short for the National Human Exploitation And Trafficking Watch Conference. If there’s one issue that unites Americans of all political stripes, it’s the sexual enslavement of children. Whatever our opinions...

A court heard the pair used Liaqat’s BMW saloon to trawl for victims, pulling up alongside girls outside shops or schools and chatting them up before a ‘campaign of calls and texts’ to groom them.

Anti-human trafficking leaders in Congress and some feminists are concerned about the new Obama administration rule. “Prostitution and sex trafficking are degrading to...

    "This to me is something that I can't ignore as a person who spent my career, my life upholding the Constitution, defending the rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness of Americans and people around the world," says Lasky, 54.

So, on Saturday, in Dana Point, Lasky will speak at a rally for Stop Child Trafficking Now, a New York City-based nonprofit created last year with the goal of stamping out the demand side of the child sex slave industry.
