Modern Day Sex Slavery

The FBI and the police have rescued a further 47 children from pimps. Here in the USA:

"This is organized crime, these people are moving kids from city to city," said Ernie Allen, president and CEO of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. "They are involved in 21st century slavery. This is a problem that is happening on Main Street USA."

These children were in nightmarish conditions, said Matthew Friedrich, acting assistant attorney general for the Justice Department's criminal division.

Adults are held in such conditions, too.
