Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost discussed the results of what he believes was the largest anti-human tracking operation in the state’s history, which was conducted in the last week, WOIO reported.

A virtual press conference with Yost, as well as representatives from the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, U.S. Marshals Service, Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office and more was held on Monday morning.

Yost announced that 177 arrests of “Johns” and traffickers were made during Operation Hope. More than a dozen of those arrests involved men who were attempting to arrange sex with a child.

I am sure the survivors are being given help and support. My thoughts are with them.

Not much other info out there as of yet.

I hope this is just the beginning, I would love to see record setting arrests sweep the country and globe.

Only thing I could find on YT at this time.

According to WHIO, members of law enforcement had four priorities during the sweep:

Rescuing victims and referring them to social services.
Recovering missing and exploited children.
Catching people trying to have sex with a minor.
Arresting male johns trying to buy sex.

In southern Ohio, 76 missing and exploited children cases were closed and 45 children were recovered by U.S. Marshals, WHIO reported.

The Attorney General’s office said 157 arrests were made in only three counties, WBNS reported.

"Among those missing included a 15-year-old girl missing from Cleveland whose recovery linked her and other possible victims to an individual in Columbus suspected of human trafficking; a 15-year-old male with two warrants who is a suspect in multiple shootings and a homicide; and a 14-year-old girl who was reported missing by the Lancaster Police Department who was recovered in Columbus within six hours of being reported missing,” the Ohio A.G.’s office said.

An additional 20 or so missing children cases were also cleared.

“My thanks to all personnel who have stepped up for this operation,” said Peter C. Tobin, U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Ohio. “These are the same personnel who hunt down violent fugitives every day.”

Degenerate filth.

I certainly hope when they end up in prison the guards tell everyone what they’re in for.

If trump gets beat I hope the next administration keeps funding these operations, if he wins I hope he at a minimum keeps up the pressure.

I wonder how much funding was put into the new stimulus package for this type of operation.

Like "SUV Special Victims Unit" hasn't been alerting us to this stuff for the past 20 years! But, we're supposed to believe that Trump and Qanon are the only ones to ever care or do anything about sex traffickers. SMH

Then it should be easy for you to link a few stories of big busts like this when Obama and Biden were running things.

No but he is the first president I can recall harping on it fairly steadily for 4 years, and I honestly cant remember so many resuces getting this sort of press.

Any publicity on something like this is great, the more people know the more likely they are to watch over their at risk family members.

Sure!


The President’s Interagency Task Force to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons has forged unprecedented collaboration in the federal government and increased prosecutorial capacity and improved victim-identification and assistance efforts in the United States. Throughout this Administration, federal law enforcement agencies have initiated over 6,000 human trafficking cases and secured over 4,000 convictions. Additionally, law enforcement investigations have identified more than 2,000 victims of human trafficking – a statistic that is now available through the Victim Assistance Database, a resource that did not exist prior to December 2011.

The Department of Justice continues to return record prosecution results. In FY 2016, DOJ initiated a total of 241 human trafficking prosecutions, charging 531 defendants. During FY 2016, DOJ convicted 439 defendants in human trafficking prosecutions.
In FY 2016, the FBI investigated 1,894 cases involving the domestic and international trafficking of adult and juvenile victims for purposes of commercial sex and forced labor. Additionally, the Department of Homeland Security initiated 1,025 human trafficking cases and identified 435 victims of human trafficking.

I don't see where almost 200 people were arrested during one operation.

I don't remember as many arrests or arrests this big back then or before.

It could just be the ME.

Here's 300 in 2014.

In 2011 the FBI busted the 'world's largest ring' and made 184 arrests.

Did you just post a meme with the word 'false' on it about Trump's claims in defense of Trump?

Yeah, just caught that one myself as I'm getting bombarded with support calls.

Re-posted without it as I don't believe it's been disproven and I accidentally discredited my own point.

Good.

Maybe it's because it gets more media play these days. It seems like there are more arrests now.

Will need to look in to this and confirm for myself, if true I'm willing to own the fact i post something that has been disproven. My support for the orange man doesn't go so far as to prop him up with false information.

Question though, as an Aussie I understand ICE to be focused on immigration - is that the case? If so, would that then mean their numbers are only reflective of trafficking victims who have come over a border?

I will give trump credit if he would stop the war on drugs and start the war on child abuse and human trafficking where you have real victims.
