FBI recovers 48 juveniles in prostitution raid


www.cnn.com

Law enforcement officials arrested more than 500 people, and took custody of 48 juveniles in a coordinated 29-city weekend sweep aimed at combating child prostitution, the FBI announced Monday.

Task forces made up largely of state and local police officers arrested and booked what authorities said were 464 adult prostitutes, 55 pimps and 55 customers on state charges. While most faced local charges, a senior FBI official said he expected there were would be some federal charges as well.

The FBI Monday said 19 searches were conducted, netting a total of $438,000 in cash, plus illegal drugs, cars and computers.

The four dozen juveniles were recovered in the third phase of Operation Cross Country, an initiative that seeks to help child prostitutes and crack down on people who control them and patronize them.

People truely are sick in this day and age. It is disgusting that these people will exploit children to make a buck with no remorse.

The article says that the task forces have recovered 670 children and over 3 million dollars in cash in the last 6 years. Im sure this is just the tip of the iceberg, and I don't even want to know how many children are put through hell in this country for the personal gain of grown men.
