    maybe a debate--human trafficking

    Advertisements
    okay so do you have "massage parlors" in your backyard--not literally in your backyard but in your town/city? i was watching this thing on MSNBC last night about how most of these places employ trafficked women, do you know what your city is doing to crack down on this problem? according to this show 17,000 a year are brought to the U.S. as sex slaves.

    I don't, in my town but I saw that last night, and wow....

    then again, does not surprise me, it happens everywhere, so why not in the US where we have sufficient "cover" for such things? Even though I think it's absolutely horrible, and as the mayor in the special said, people need to WAKE UP.

    It's just like the To Catch a Predator Specials.... we had one of those done in a town about 10 minutes from me...

    I'm from San Diego. My hometown is literally 15 minutes north of the Mexican border. A girl in my high school class actually got paid big bucks to help smuggle in Mexicans. At the time, it didn't occur to me that those illegal Mexicans were probably doing various sex acts as repayment for entering the country illegally.

    Hmm, well I don't think there is anything like that in the town I live in (but you never know), but I wouldn't be surprised if there is something like that in the Twin Cities. (Mn)

    Sad. I feel bad for those people who are exploited that way.

    I live in Vegas so sex is not a part of our daily life in any way. Obviously.

    I actually did a research project, as well as an informative speech on human trafficking. It is truly scary how close to home this crime actually is. I can't remember the specific statistics on it, but there are tons of women and girls in the United States that are trafficked on a daily basis. My research paper was around 15 pages long (if not longer) because there is so much involved, and information on it.
