How little value do traffickers have for human life? We now have the tragic answer after a massive nationwide FBI sting that took place this month sheds some light on some true evil that most wouldn’t believe still happens in the United States.
84 kids were rescued from sex trafficking between October 12-15 across the country, with 120 people arrested in the process.
According to a report, in once instance a three-month-old girl and her older sister, 5, were being offered up to an undercover agent for $600 together. Via Fox9.com:
One of the girls rescued was a 16-year-old in Pecos, Texas. An undercover agent in the FBI El Paso office responded to an online advertisement for entertainment. When the agent arrived, he was met by a 21-year-old woman who said he could have sexual intercourse with her and a 16-year-old for $200. A driver and the woman were both arrested.
According to the FBI press release, 12 children were recovered in Michigan alone and eight sex traffickers or pimps were arrested. They also said they arrested 46 adults who they say were involved in prostitution.
Officers staged operations in hotels, casinos, truck stops, and internet sites.
The FBI released extended raw video of the operation, and it’s both infuriating and disturbing to watch. But it’s also necessary to share with people around the country, because most Americans simply aren’t aware (or believe) that this level of depravity could possibly exist to this extent in America.
