Freeing women can be 'hardest part' of police work

Officers in California scour online dating ads looking for possible human trafficking victims - and then arrange a date.

They say one of the hardest parts of the job is dealing with traumatized women who don’t think they can successfully escape.

The operations - part of the Orange County Human Trafficking Task Force - include setting up an undercover sting and trying to catch the woman’s pimp.

      These "good old" "godly" days you speak of are idealized visions of a past which never existed. Are you proposing we return to the slavery time period? Maybe the "Good ol' days where we kept black folk at the back of the bus"? The industrial revolution with its fantastic record of respecting human dignity and safety? What?
      What a joke.

    The article doesn't mention what the cops do if the woman does not have a pimp. What do they do if she is working for herself?

    Why does the article only talk about freeing women? Do the police think there are no male prostitutes? Do they think that female prostitutes are trafficked, but male prostitutes are not?

    If you see an apartment or house with men going in and out at all hours of the day, chances are it's being used for trafficking. You might want to report it to police. It could be a sign it's being used for slavery and trafficking of women. Nice homes in suburbs have been used for this purpose.

    They need religious(Christian) education that the world consists of something entirely unknown to them. That humans are made with something beyond flesh and physical substance. The existence of entirely different kind of pleasues and deep pains in different dimentions.

    Anybody claiming that things where alot better in the old days should be crucified by our modern day multitude of GODLY COUNCELORS.THINGS GET BETTER AS WE GRACEFULLY AGE AND NEW GEMERATIONS RISE TO UPHOLD THE CELLESTIAL LAWS OF GOD.Is anybody or any society afraid of anything? Then there is good reasons for you to be. EXAMINE YOURSELVES.
