Two years trapped in U.S. sex slavery

Slavery is all over the world, not just developing countries. The film "Eden" is based on Chong Kim's story as a sex slave in U.S. Here she tells Becky Anderson how members of the public stood and did nothing when she tried to run away, and how she plotted her eventual escape.

    How about going after the owners of cheap motels and the people that work there? They rent rooms to pimps and prostitutes all the time. They know who all the pimps and drug dealers are. But they turn a blind eye to it because they're making a ton of money. They don't report anything to cops. They facilitate drug and human trafficking all over the united states.

    You also have slumlords in America and Canada who rent apartments to pimps, drug dealers, and other criminals. They don't report anything to cops because they're making money off the situation. Their assets should be seized if they're aiding human trafficking and drug dealing by not reporting it.

    How do we know this woman is not lying and making the whole thing up? Why didn't she go to the police after she escaped? Where is the investigation about the validity of her claims? It makes for a good Lifetime movie, but where is the proof?
