Fifteen-year-old "Debbie" is the middle child in a close-knit Air Force family from suburban Phoenix, and a straight-A student — the last person most of us would expect to be forced into the seamy world of sex trafficking.

But Debbie, which is not her real name, is one of thousands of young American girls who authorities say have been abducted or lured from their normal lives and made into sex slaves. While many Americans have heard of human trafficking in other parts of the world — Thailand, Cambodia, Latin America and eastern Europe, for example — few people know it happens here in the United States.

The FBI estimates that well over 100,000 children and young women are trafficked in America today. They range in age from 9 to 19, with the average age being 11.


Average age being 11...

There is a sickness, and without attention it will continue to fester and spread. People have got to get serious about protecting their children, God knows the government can't/won't take action for the most part.

Parents have to take responsibility for the welfare of their children, simple as that.

A bigger issue, perhaps, is the continuing denial on the part of all the uber-patriots hanging around. They talk big regarding issues of terrorism and nationalistic pride, but they refuse to account for the problems growing all around us. This country may be the greatest country in the world..but that's not saying much given the current state of human affairs.

We've got to put our own house in order, I think, before committing ourselves to yet another war on foreign soil.

People need to pay attention to the court reports in their area because what you see will sicken you. Where I live you will do more time for posession of Pot even small amounts than you will for being a Pedophile.
You may think this sounds crazy now but within 10 years being a pedophile will be looked at as a sexual prefrerance with children as young as 12 years old.

Yes, there are a few groups, who for a while have being calling for the age of consent to be lowered to 12.

Listening to people make this arguement is not pleasant but to hear it debated on public media (as has been done on Australian radio) with 'respect' being shown to those who claim a 12 y.o. boy should have the 'right' to 'choose' to 'love' who they will, gutted me.

As shocking as court results are, they pale to 'reasonable' when you hear some of the worst evidence, excluded from trials, that makes it all but impossible for juries to understand the whole complex web of evil used to protect paedophiles and play down the suffering of victims.

For the history of Pedophilia, look to the worlds religions, and the worlds traditions...
India: married from pre-adolescent
middle east: having sex with young boys is common
christianity: look to exodus, and leviticus for really great ways to sell your daughter...
tribal religions: common place for interfamily marriages, as well as marriages of old men, and young girls...
shamanic religions (american indian): incest between father-daughter or brother/sister is considered rampant in some tribes.

So is this just a problem of these sickos?... or almost every non-first world country?

I predict that a national age will be lowered to 14 if for no reason other than religious tolerance. (this is the age that many first world countries have already accepted, and is the age for some states in the US already)\

Let us pray that it never goes lower... 14 is bad enough. and IMO wrong...

Human trafficking for both labor and sexual slavery is sick and the people who take part in running the operations are subhuman scum and it needs to be stopped.

The White House ordered all government contractors to stop using human trafficking over three years ago, yet the Pentagon as still not enforced this. Lobbyists are trying to modify the policies.


The lobbying groups opposing the plan say they're in favor of the idea in principle, but said they believe that implementing key portions of it overseas is unrealistic. They represent thousands of firms, including some of the industry's biggest names, such as DynCorp International and Halliburton subsidiary KBR, both of which have been linked to trafficking-related concerns.

www.chicagotribune.com...


If a company is involved with human trafficking - which is SLAVERY, plain and simple - the Government needs to drop all ties with it and begin investigations to prosecute those responsible and free their slaves. Am I delusional, or was slavery not banned a hundred and fifty years ago?

Then there's the Franklin Coverup Scandal, which still needs a lot of work on its related wikipedia articles (I'm working on them) but can be summarized quite quickly.

In the late 1980s, a man named Lawrence E. King was arrested for embezzling a large sum of money from the credit union he ran in Omaha, Nebraska. After his arrest, a number of stories started coming out from kids in the area about how they had been sex slaves under King and how he had flown them around to parties in Washington and other areas where they would deliver drugs or have sex with politicians and other "important" people. It never got very far legally and one of the kids is in jail (I believe) for perjury, after she refused to say that she made up the story. However, to quote Wikipedia:


In February, 1999, a U.S. District Court awarded a plaintiff, Paul A. Bonacci, $800,000 in damages against King for various tort claims, including physical, mental, and sexual abuse. The award followed a default judgment.

en.wikipedia.org...


Allegedly, lobbyist Craig J. Spence was involved with this as well and took some of the kids, including the aforementioned Bonacci into the White House in the middle of the night for a tour. Spence was a rather sick person who may or may not have worked for the CIA (he liked to make up stories about himself) to collect information for use in blackmail against various famous people. Whatever the case, according to some of his security people, he did at least collect blackmail material for his own use. He would hold sex and drug parties in Washington and film them with hidden cameras. He was found dead in a hotel room in 1989, ruled a suicide. Many of the mainstream reports on him did not include his involvement with child prostitution, but the fact that some of the kids from Omaha described his parties and that the mainstream media reported on his sex parties, I personally believe he was involved in it as well.

That was only a very small part of the story and there are other threads that go into that topic in more detail, but I think it's still ongoing and it's a plague that needs to be publicly investigated and stopped.

I don't understand anything it seems anymore...

"The FBI estimates that well over 100,000 children and young women are trafficked in America today. "

Why isn't this put on the top priority of law enforcement?!! 100,000??? Are you kidding me! Why is it people that commit crimes like this against helpless childeren get off with a slap on the wrist? It should be the other way around. Abductors and abusers, etc. of children should be put away for life... PERIOD and possibly put to death.

I tell you what... if my child were, heaven forbid, ever abducted, I would quit my job. My new job would be tracking him down to the ends of the earth, leaving behind the dead bodies of those involved in taking him. Swear to God...

I saw this story in the paper this morning, and it holds out the glimmer of hope that this topic will continue to garner mainstream attention, but also highlights my mounting concern that we may see the outcome be nomalization of the abusive activity and lowering of consent ages.


Mainstream attention must be directed towards activism aimed at protecting our children from this abuse, not further incorporating it into the status quo.

Chris Witty has been to the Olympics before, both summer and winter, and has won medals of all colors.

What's different about these games for the celebrated speedskater, though, is what she will be carrying - and what she won't be carrying.

On Friday night, she will lead the U.S. team into the opening ceremony of the Turin Games, proudly bearing the U.S. flag. She is no longer burdened, however, by the 20-year-old secret that she was sexually abused as a child.

After she competed in Salt Lake City in 2002 and underwent therapy, Witty went public with an account of how a trusted neighbor in suburban Milwaukee had abused her, starting at age 4 and continuing until she was 11 — and her subsequent feelings of guilt, an inability to trust people, awkwardness as a teenager, and serious depression.

It astonishes me that these things are allowed to go on. 100,000 in America alone? That is an outrageous number. No... one case is outrageous. 100,000 is unfathomable.

But with regards to the Franklin Coverup, part of the reason that it was thrown out of court and allowed to continue is allegedly because some of the local police and court officials were in on it. Also, Special Investigator Gary Caradori, who had flown to Chicago in his private plane to pick up evidence for the case, was on the way home when his airplane came apart in midair. Coincidence? Possibly. But I don't think so, personally. And, former CIA director William Colby, who was involved in investigating the case and was a friend of the man who wrote the book on the subject, former Nebraska Senator John DeCamp, was found dead under very suspicious circumstances that indicate he was taken from his home in the night and possibly tortured and then executed.

These things, if they are true, and I believe they are, would indicate that there are very powerful people who don't want the prosecution of the people involved to go through.

I think we have to ask the question, "Were all pre-industrial nations and people perverts?" I think if we define perversion as "pedophilia" (the 'prophet' Muhammad with a nine year old) as opposed to "paedophilia" (the Romans, and everyone else, allowing girls to be married at 12 and up), then the answer is, "No." God, or, if the atheists/agnostics prefer, nature or evolution, designed humans to be sexually mature at around 12, no amount of social engineering on our part can change that.

When I was a schoolboy at the Waverly School in Monongahela, Peg Hill told us that David Farragut, the U.S. Navy's very first admiral, had been commissioned midshipman at the ripe old age of ten for service on the warship Essex. Had Farragut been a schoolboy like me, he would have been in fifth grade when he sailed for the Argentine, rounding the Horn into action against British warships operating along the Pacific coast of South America.

Farragut left a description of what he encountered in his first sea fight:

I shall never forget the horrid impression made upon me at the sight of the first man I had ever seen killed. It staggered me at first, but they soon began to fall so fast that it appeared like a dream and produced no effect on my nerves.

The poise a young boy is capable of was tested when a gun captain on the port side ordered him to the wardroom for primers. As he started down the ladder, a gun captain on the starboard side opposite the ladder was "struck full in the face by an eighteen-pound shot," his headless corpse falling on Farragut:

We tumbled down the hatch together. I lay for some moments stunned by the blow, but soon recovered consciousness enough to rush up on deck. The captain, seeing me covered with blood, asked if I were wounded; to which I replied, "I believe not, sir." "Then," said he, "where are the primers?" This brought me to my senses and I ran below again and brought up the primers.

The Essex had success; it took prizes. Officers were dispatched with skeleton crews to sail them back to the United States, and at the age of twelve, Farragut got his first command when he was picked to head a prize crew. I was in fifth grade when I read about that. Had Farragut gone to my school he would have been in seventh. You might remember that as a rough index how far our maturity had been retarded even fifty years ago. Once at sea, the deposed British captain rebelled at being ordered about by a boy and announced he was going below for his pistols (which as a token of respect he had been allowed to keep). Farragut sent word down that if the captain appeared on deck armed he would be summarily shot and dumped overboard. He stayed below.

So ended David Farragut's first great test of sound judgment.


A large part of the problem is our educational system, which was designed to fail, as well as designed to extend emotional childhood far beyond puberty.

I'm more concerned about the fundamental question of right and wrong as regards the innocent child than I am about historical social conventions and leanings of adults toward sexual desire for children.


from link above
subsequent feelings of guilt, an inability to trust people, awkwardness as a teenager, and serious depression.


To these symptoms we can add the violent, and self-abusive tendencies that many also act out in the wake of having sexual intimacy forced on them at an early age, regardless of what school has prepared them for. There is no 7th grade health class that can explain to a young abuse victim why Uncle Harry/Aunt Harriet, or whomever, does what he/she does to him/her.

With the obvious consequences to the victim being such as they are, and the widespread destruction of fundamental values that stems from innocent children being subjected to sexual abuse, it continues to amaze me how so little is being done about it. I guess when Uncle Harry/Aunt Harriet is the church elder, or the town mayor, police chief, or doctor, the innocent one on the receiving end of their sick desire doesn't have much of a chance to understand what is happening until they are part of it, and they feel like it is too late to speak out.

It is never too late for truth and justice to prevail.

Seriously, forget about aliens, war, and wether big foot exists in your backyard; this is a major issue that we must stop.

One of America's most disturbing street gangs, MS13, is to blame. Known for smuggling nuclear weapons, drugs and even children in and out of our country. Many police forces have their own department to deal with MS13 and are doing a fantastic job halting their activity in many areas where children like to play outside in their front yards.

I see you too have been watching the National Geographic Channel on television. MS13 gang has been aired on that channel. What we need to do is keep better tabs on our children so this doesn't happen. Some say why does this happen? We as parents and parts of society need to make the change. The buck starts with us.

That is so true... it is really a sickness.....But its even more sickening, when the threat are parents themselves....Yesterday i happened to drop by a radio show, where a guy called and started describing how excited he got when he looked to his 18 year old daughter, because, quote "she is developing so nicely...she's hot", he also wanted to know if there are any other guys out there that feel that way, becuase , qoute" I know I'm not a pervet, its a man think...ya know" this is a parent...and that girl has no idea of what goes in his mind...porbably not even the mother knows.

I hate to turn this into a policatl issue, but parties appart... since a certain main claimmed on national TV that "oral sex is not sex", this nation went from bad to worse. The sex slave trade is "just" another of the octopus tentacles. Pronography is rampant as well, and the more perverted the websites and magazines are you can be assured the more money they make. How can it be stopped ? I have absolutelly no idea.... Its a big money maker, and with so many thousands of missing people a day, sometimes i think it can't be stopped at all....

Maybe it could be refraiedn, if at least we could keep the younger members of society shilded from the same kind of pervertion that destroys their parenst and families morals.

I am definetly not a puritane, but there are so many things wrong in this subejct i don'nt even know where to start, and sadly they ahve been building up for a couple of decades now... since 1960 i guess?

The notion of "Moral" is more and more unpopular, and of course if you even mention moral you're labeled as a "christian", or a "close-minded Bu#", or something like that.



We've got to put our own house in order, I think, before committing ourselves to yet another war on foreign soil.


I would agrre to a point... the sex slavery market problem, does not stop us from helping someone else. In fact, if we help other nations with their problems, we can also be more aware of sex trade destinations, i would think.

I also know that the White House attempted to pass a lwa, where Internet Pornography would be much mreo retricted than it presently is, but it was authomacatlly stopped by the H. CLinto, Kennedy and a bunch of other "yes mam's" of hers, under the excuse that the President was trying to find another way to spy on people...
... i guess you can't have everything... specially when there are people in congress so despearte to sit their fat butts in the white house, that they will actually come up with spying theories to scare their people, and stop laws that could actually be helpfull to society.

A paedophile is "someone who is sexually attracted primarily or exclusively to prepubescent children".
That does not make him/her a criminal, the crime is really abusing the child, not thinking of it.

Here in Portugal one defendant in a paedophilia case is known to have consulting a doctor because he knew that his behaviour was not normal, but apparently the doctor did not care to much about that.

What turns this somewhat limited problem in a global one is when someone, who may even not be an paedophile, sees in this a easy way of gaining large sums of money, buying or kidnapping children to sell to the real paedophiles who have the money and that do not care about the consequences.

And this is the same kind of "market" that exists for young women, the only difference is that those women may know what is going to happen to them and the children do not.

I think this is one of those things that will always existed and will continue to exist, because it is impossible to know what happens inside every house and inside everyone's mind, but we can control the "industrial" side of this, the traffic of thousands of innocent children and young adults to the satisfaction of some and the gaining of some few.

It will be very difficult, because those people usually prepare the ground. The fact that some police officers are involved does not mean that they had the idea after enjoining the police force, maybe they always thought of the police has a way of gaining access to some "markets".

Who was that ?? Carlos Cruz ???


Anyway, this is a very serious and tragic subject and unfortunetly even Portugal has a bad spot on this market. Portugal does have a big dark market for brazilian, african and eastern european girls and even boys.,... sad but true ...

Your love for the administration is so great you're willing to look the other way while they use our tax dollars to pad the pockets of slavers?

Look at the priorities of the last two attorney generals, (Reno was no better, but bear with me), Ashcroft was obsessive about bongs, and Gonzales is obsessive about obscenity (not child pornography, which would make sense, but regular pornography that offends some people)

The priorities are bass-ackwards, and there's no excuse for pandering to special interests while innocent children are in danger.
