Study finds 'alarming' human trafficking figures in Mexico's capital

While an estimated 10,000 women are victims of human trafficking in Mexico's capital, there were only 40 investigations of the crime and three convictions in the city last year, according to a report issued this week.

The discrepancy is an "alarming figure" that shows a need to improve laws and policies, according to a study on human trafficking and sexual exploitation from Mexico City's human rights commission, which calls the phenomenon a "new form of slavery."

"The authorities are not investigating, nor are they asking witnesses," said Eva Reyes, investigation coordinator at the Antonio de Montesinos Center for Social and Cultural Studies, one of the partners of the study.

    Duh, Mexicans illegally invade the US and other criminal and corrupt actions in their own country and they are suprised about human trafficking, that really surprises me that there is that many gullible people around, then again it shouldn't.

        您好!
        我的名字叫田振功。中国公民。我被恐怖组织控制、迫害已经三年多的时间了,生命危在旦夕。在此向全世界正义、善良的人民求救。
        2008年我在北京打工被以“歌手”孙悦、孙铁林兄妹为首犯罪组织跟踪、迫害。
        一开始我在那儿打工都会有道德败坏的人捣乱、破坏,而且越来越严重,有人说在互联网上给我开追悼会;说有人到我家中去调查我.....那时不清楚,现在想来早被那个犯罪组织跟踪。
        搞得在北京人人都认识我,使我无法得到工作。以致流落街头。
        此时孙悦兄妹才出现,我与他们素不相识,而且以我对中国娱乐圈的了解,里面全是些没有文化、没有社会责任感的人,他们动辄犯罪,甚至经营黑社会。
        跟踪我的犯罪分子说:孙悦看上他了,以后他更厉害了。他杀他父母,走到互联网上臭他去!我就冲上去抓他们,但是这些犯罪分子是职业犯罪、早有准备,很快跑掉。这明明是犯罪组织有组者的犯罪。我恨不得掘地三尺也要把他们抓到。
        以后他们在大街上骚扰我,指示犯罪组织成员怂恿我去打架,我不理他们。
        孙悦兄妹见自己的阴谋屡屡挫败,更加气急败坏、要置我于死地。在社会上散播谣言,说我是杀人犯。他们是名人,目前的中国有几个人不世俗,又有几人不势力,所以中国人见到我都喊我杀人犯,一两年的时间;无论白天黑夜,走到哪儿都说有杀手要杀我。见到我吃东西就号召社会上的人骂我,说拍照片传到互联网上臭我。想把我活活饿死;说绑架我的家人.......指示跟踪我的恐怖分子说警察发通缉令要抓我.......
        害得我露宿街头,很长时间吃不上一顿饭。这样的迫害长达两三个月之久,最后使我昏死在北京大街上.....
        那天在北京建外永安里地区,犯罪分子说“一会儿,孙悦的哥哥带人来抓你”我就到北京崇文区找工作,当我走到崇文区富贵园小区家乐福超市东面一栋闲置的楼房前想坐下来休息一下,因为遭受长期的非人迫害身体极度虚弱昏倒在地上......当我醒过来挣扎着往回走,一些无良市民任然恶毒攻击我。
        2008年11月5日我在位于北京永安里LG双子座大厦后面的泰和餐馆(现桂林米粉。与旁边‘地毯王国’同为河南籍老板一家经营,与孙悦兄妹犯罪组织共同害我)打工,这才是我人生噩梦的刚刚开始......
        他们收买了这家餐馆的东北籍吴姓凶手加入恐怖组织,伺机害我。
        11月下半月快发工资时,他们对我下了黑手。怕我有了钱离开北京。
        那天在餐馆打工的工友说:孙悦去过宿舍。她是去观察作案现场,可见这个凶手对这次行动的重视。晚上吴姓凶手用迷药将我迷倒,孙悦兄妹赶到在我身体内非法强行注入纳米机器人。这是包含分子计算机、人机对话装置的纳米机器人。我想什么别人全知道。凶手利用与之相连的电脑、手持移动终端遥控跟踪、迫害我(在活的生物有机体与计算机之间建立联系),最要命的是这种纳米机器人在我身体内以光速复制.......
        凶手见纳米机器人在我体内工作后就残忍脱掉我的裤子.......
        那个恐怖的夜晚对我的生命而言是多么的危险啊!孙悦、孙铁林、范冰冰犯罪集团可是世界上最毒的杀人魔鬼啊!
        四年了中国政府拒绝我报案,凶手操纵迫害我,我快没命了。

    I have seen this issue grow in alarming rates as well, especially as we have been working here on the ground to fight human trafficking and helping to rehabilitate victims.

    Traffickers are basic low-life with sub-human stadards that they adhere too.Putting a dollar figure on human suffering is so-sick-its utterly disgusting and it should be punishable by very-long incarcerations that includes many ,many years untill one is old and grey.Equatable punishment-try it that way,too!

    The mexicans have done it to themselves-looking for the easy-life in america with their pockets stuffed with american currency! In the end-run they are nothing more than the gringo with the bad-ass bandito atitude. Dont you realize that any thing that is good comes to-be through a long drawn-out process.Just do the right thing and you know exactly what i mean.
