The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

INNOCENCE LOST INITIATIVE

Foxnews is reporting a large bust in a child sexual abuse prostitution ring that runs from New York to Hawaii. I read the following story with complete disgust, and horror at what these children where made to suffer at the hands of these sick monsters.

Nineteen people have been arrested among 31 who have been indicted for sexual trafficking in children, taking minors across state lines for prostitution and other crimes, Gonzales said.The indictments, in Michigan, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, target the purported operators of four child prostitution rings. Some of the children had been reported missing or had run away because they had been abused at home, FBI assistant director Chris Swecker said."The abhorrent acts alleged in these charges include children being herded around the country as sex slaves, forced to work as prostitutes in brothels and at truck stops, and beaten at the hands of pimps and peddlers," Gonzales said at a Justice Department news conference. FOX STORY

This gruesome story has no real end, we have come to know that the removal of these low life scums will only put a bump in the road for the sick predators who use their services. The traffickers will be replaced by others of their deviant kind.
Until we stand up against not only those enabling this, but those paying their fees and demand exact justice- it will continue to happen to children ever single day.

In Detroit, a grand jury charged four Ohio residents with forcing two girls, 14 and 15, to have sex at a truck stop in Michigan. The girls had been held as virtual prisoners in Toledo, Ohio, where they were told to address one defendant, Deric Willoughby, as "Daddy," and taken to hotel rooms for prostitution. Their payments were eventually turned over to Willoughby, the indictment said.

Another defendant, Richard Lamar Gordon, is identified in the indictment as a truck driver who took the girls from a Sears parking lot in the Toledo area to the Michigan truck stop and had sex with one of them. He has not been arrested.

In the spring of 2003, the Violent Crimes and Major Offenders Section of the Criminal Investigative Division, FBI Headquarters, in partnership with the Child Exploitation Obscenity Section of the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC), initiated "Innocence Lost," designed to address the growing problem of children forced into prostitution. The program brings state and federal law enforcement agencies, prosecutors, and social service providers all from one city to NCMEC, where the group is trained together.The following fugitives are wanted as part of the Innocence Lost Initiative.
