25-year-old Dmarcus Antwain Ward of Minden, La. has been arrested and federally indicted on charges of sex trafficking of minors and transporting them for the purposes of prostitution.
Ward allegedly transported two girls, ages 16 and 17, from Atlanta, Georgia to Birmingham, Alabama in order to prostitute them. Ward aka ‘Boss’ also allegedly advertised the girls on the Village Voice Media owned Backpage.com.
While I do think that craigslist should be raked over the coals for turning a blind eye to child prostitution and human trafficking I still would like to know why that Village Voice Media is getting a pass. Will it take another murder like that of Julissa Brisman until the politicians and Attorneys General wake up to this?
