When my lovely and talented wife Jade sent me this article she commented that she ‘wondered’ where the victim was advertised. While I couldn’t confirm it one could safely assume that the victim was advertised on one of the big two. However I am getting ahead of myself.
This article from change.org is mostly about how they want the Wyndham hotel chains to be more proactive in helping to prevent child prostitution at their franchises. However I want to focus on the other part of the article which is the fact that members of violent criminal gangs are trafficking children as prostitutes.
In one instance in San Diego members of the Crips were allegedly prostituting girls as young as 14. In the most recent instance in Virginia a member of MS-13 was turning out a 15-year-old girl and was advertising her as a “high school girl” and “fresh out of the box.”
So for those of you that are ‘hobbyists’ when you get a girl off of backpage or craigslist not only could you be getting a child but your money could be going to fuel some of the most violent group of criminals in our country.
But hey, it’s all consenting adults and a victimless crime right? Hardly.
