A total of 630 law enforcement personnel participated in Operation Cross Country II. The operation resulted in 642 arrests (including 73 pimps and 518 prostitutes), the disruption of 12 large-scale prostitution operations, and, most importantly, the rescue of 47 children—ages 13 to 17 years old—from the sex trade. Ten of those children had been listed as “missing” in the NCMEC database....
To date, the work of our 28 Innocence Lost task forces and working groups around the country have resulted in 265 indictments, 365 convictions on a combination of state and federal charges, 46 criminal enterprises disrupted and 36 successfully dismantled. Most importantly, our efforts have led to the recovery of 575 child victims.

Wow, The FeeBees done guud. I sincerely hope all the 'I's" are dotted and 'T's' crossed on this one. Even the lowest of the clowns in this organization need to be put behind bars for many years. Great news. Thanks GreenEyes.
This cooperative effort—there are currently 28 Innocence Lost task forces and working groups around the country—has been highly successful. Last June, the first Operation Cross Country led to more than 350 arrests and rescues of 21 children. To date, the work of the Innocence Lost Initiative has resulted in:
*365 convictions on a combination of state and federal charges;
*46 criminal enterprises disrupted and 36 successfully dismantled; and
*Substantial sentences of convicted pimps, including two life sentences and several sentences ranging in length from 30 to 40 years.
Most important of all, our efforts have led to the recovery of 575 child victims.

I wonder what's going to happen to these children now? They've got to be mess up because of this. I hope they don't just get thrown into the foster care system with no counseling and expect to fit right in with society after what they've been through.
This issue is MONUMENTAL in importance,
