FBI crackdown nabs pimps, rescues children

The FBI's latest crackdown on child prostitution revealed a dark underside of society growing through Internet sites that provide pimps easy access to johns in hotels, motels, at truck stops and just about anywhere else.

A U.S.-wide operation over the weekend resulted in 150 arrests, with 105 children between the ages of 13 and 17 rescued, according to Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI's Criminal Investigative Division.

It was the largest such sweep to date, he said, with 28 searches and 129 seizures of cash, drugs, vehicles and firearms.

    I think the problem is from home, perents have lost the fight of morals, and good perental upbringing. The act of going after materials, fame, and riches has contributed a lot deal with moral breakdown of the children. So the government is trying but the perents have a greater job to do, untill then the law enforcement will always keep trying. God be with us. Kingsley E.T. Nigeria.

    It is surprising how little is known or reported about the slavery in the USA...............there are still 100s of thousands of young people who are either bonded to, or under the control of slave masters in the USA....................a practice that in many areas is still accepted............

    An attention-grabbing dialogue is value comment. I believe that it’s best to write extra on this topic, it won’t be a taboo topic but typically people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
