This Article Shows Why the Talk with Metzker Today at 3 in D201 is So VERY Important

149 exploited children recovered in nationwide sex trafficking sting

Oct 14th 2015 1:53PM
NEW YORK (PIX11) — Hundreds of children who were being sexually exploited have been rescued from their “nightmare” as part of a week-long, nationwide operation meant to “end the scourage” of sex trafficking in the U.S., according to the FBI.

More than 150 pimps were arrested in the sting, the agency said. The children — 149 in all — were plucked from hotels, casinos and truck stops, among other locations, federal officials said. The youngest was 12 years old.

Investigators said they tracked down some of the culprits by scouring ads posted on then setting up meetings — recorded by hidden cameras — between the pimps, children and undercover agents.

“When kids are treated as a commodity in seedy hotels and on dark roadsides, we must rescue them from their nightmare and severely punish those responsible for that horror, “FBI director James Comey said in a statement. “We simply must continue to work with our partners to end the scourge of sex trafficking in our country.”

Executed in 135 cities and involving more than 500 law enforcement officials, the sting has been dubbed Operation Cross Country and is part of the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative.

This is the ninth operation of its kind, the agency said. The first one was carried out in 2003. To date it has identified and recovered about 4,800 sexually exploited children and led to the convictions of more than 2,000 pimps and others associated with trafficking crimes, according to the FBI.

After the children are found, crisis intervention specialists are provided for them as well as “resources for basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical attention,” the FBI said.
