FBI frees 149 exploited children


There is some very good news today. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted raids to stop some sex-trafficking and prostitution victims:

14 October 2015

A nationwide FBI sting focusing on underage victims of prostitution resulted in the rescue of 149 sexually exploited children and the arrests of more than 150 pimps and others, according the bureau.

The ninth annual initiative known as “Operation Cross Country” – the largest to date – was carried out last week in135 cities including Atlanta, Cleveland, Denver, Knoxville, Tenn., Alexandria. Va., Jackson, Miss., Los Angeles, Portland, Sacramento and Seattle, with the help of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Local initiatives were coordinated through 73 of the FBI’s child exploitation task forces, which include local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, according to the Bureau. More than 500 law enforcement officers participated in stings at hotels, casinos, truck stops and other locations known to be frequented by pimps and prostitutes, the FBI says.

This is great news. I pray that the victims will be able to cope with what they have been through so that they can move forward with their lives.

Child pornography is considered to be a factor that encourages pedophilia and in the past I did a YouTube video speaking out against pornography, including child pornography (Pornography: Harmless Fun or a Scourge on Society? ).
