Human Trafficking in Colorado

5 comments:

  1. Hey. I'm always on the look-out for people with info on this atrocity. I'm in the middle of researching Human Trafficking for my college informative speech and stumbled on your site. Thanks for the great work! I just wrote an entry in my blog linking you guys. I want others to be able to read what you have to say, as well!

    Blessings,

    Where are all the underage children kidnapped and forced against their will by a pimp to have sex with the genreal public for money? How come we don’t see any of the forced victims themselves complaining about it? Why don’t the “millions of forced against their will child victims” talk about how they were kidnapped and forced against their will by a evil pimp to have sex for profit? I would like to have a interview with the “millions of forced against their will raped kidnapped child victims” So I could hear their stories. Where are they? Why do we only hear from the anti-prostitution groups that received money and grants from the government, and not the millions of victims themselves? If there are Millions of them, Shouldn't the police and public know where they are, and shouldn't we hear the millions of victims speak? Instead, none are found. Do all men really love raping children who are kicking, crying and screaming, with no one willing to help? Are all men really evil like this article says? Because according to this article 100% of men in the world are evil child rapists. Because only women help children and only men abuse them….right?

    Sex trafficking is illegal and the pentities are very severe. It is very difficult to force someone to be a sex slave, they would have to have 24 hour guards posted and be watched 365 days a year, 24 hours per day. Have the threat of violence if they refused, and have no one notice and complain to the authorities or police. They would need to hide from the general public yet still manage to see customers from the general public and not have the customers turn the traffickers in to the police. They would need to provide them with medical care, food, shelter, and have all their basic needs met. They would need to have the sex slaves put on a fake front that they enjoyed what they were doing, act flirtatious and do their job well.
    They would have to deal with the authorities looking for the missing women, and hide any money they may make, since it comes from illegal activity. They must do all of this while constantly trying to prevent the sex slaves from escaping and reporting them to the police. They would need to prevent the general public from reporting them into the police. This is extremely difficult to do, which makes this activity rare.
    Here are some good websites about this:

      This is a ridiculous comment clearly from an uninformed person. There are millions of victims across the world. Human trafficking is the 3rd largest criminal enterprise behind arms and drug dealing earning and estimated $9billion a year. If you want to hear from the victims all it takes is a little unbiased research. "Fair Girls" in Washington, D.C. is just one group that puts them center stage. Also not all men are the problem and no one is claiming otherwise.
      What really bothered me about your comment is that you dont believe someone could be held captive without being watched 24/7. It is incredibly easy for pimps to manipulate their victims by threats of violence to them or their families if they resist. They also manipulate the victims by giving gifts and promises of love that when made to a teenager seem harmless and genuine. Furthermore many of these victims come from abusive homes where no love is shown and suddenly someone shows a little interest; that can be very manipulating. Do some research before you pass judgement on a topic.
