NORTH FULTON COUNTY, Ga. - A sting on the sex-trafficking trade in metro Atlanta netted dozens of arrests and the rescue of dozens of children forced into sexual servitude, the FBI announced this week.

Operation Safe Summer was a collaborative effort between the FBI’s Atlanta field office and 38 law enforcement agencies in six metro counties, assistant Special Agent in Charge Matt Alcoke told Channel 2’s Mike Petchenik.

“They are crimes of special concern to the FBI and to law enforcement generally,” Alcoke said. “Because the victims are so vulnerable as children and because the offenders could be from just about any walk of life, from a gang member all the way up to someone who is highly successful and wealthy.”

The sting ended with nearly 160 children rescued, including one as young as 3 years old, and nearly 150 arrests, convictions or sentences, officials said.

Fair trials.

First class hangings.

In that order.

That this happens in the United States of America saddens me beyond belief.

Anyone who exploits a child like this needs to be put down like an animal. Expedite them to God and let Him pass judgement on their eternal souls.

I was shocked (really) and saddened to hear Atlanta is a major hub for sex trafficking. These perps deserve no mercy.

The fact that they mention North Fulton is pretty telling. That is the affluent part of the county.

The Atlanta area is a hub (due to the airport) for this sort of thing. It is a real scourge. President Trump is DOING something about it.

No names of those arrested?

They should be named and booking pictures released.

Too lenient. The people doing this classify as wolfs’ heads and rate being shot on sight.

Not buying it.

I think some lines are being purposely blurred here. I believe this is an illegal alien crackdown under the guise of “sex trafficking” for political cover.

Yes, young children are being “trafficked” illegally into America and it’s not uncommon for something terrible to happen to them, but these numbers don’t add up.

The “pro-deportation” forces have been throwing the name MS-13 around carelessly as well. I see this as a similar fade. Not every illegal alien is MS-13, and not every trafficked Latin kid is being sexually exploited.

This is being used to have less pushback for enforcing immigration law.

But Sessions isn’t doing anything. There will be more arrests coming. This is just the start.

Trevey Parks was identified as a ringleader. He’s a usual suspect.

You may be right. I’ve read that the most common crimes for Hispanic illegals is DUI and sex offenses.

I don’t recall this type of enforcement until Trump.

Don’t get me wrong, I live here in Atlanta and there is “always” pimping going on around here. I just think some law enforcement public relations have learned to blur these lines a little bit when speaking to the media.

I am very familiar with Alpharetta and the number 160 trafficked “children” is simply not realistic.

Agreed. Fair trial. Just sentence. Swift execution.
