4yo sold on Craigslist

Quote:
More than 2,900 cases of on-line child prostitution have been reported to the Congressionally mandated tip line, which debuted in 1998 to help fight Internet crimes against children.

In 2004, 559 cases of on-line child prostitution were reported, compared to 142 cases in 1998, according to the national center's Web site.
What is wrong with people? And WHO is buying these children? They need to be locked up, too!

We're talking about children being raped, hurt, violated and dehumanized. Children. Many times by the people who are supposed to love and protect them the most.

Not really a joking matter.

Not saying that mothers don't do it, but I've heard a lot of stories (via the news, not urban legends or whatever) about fathers actually trading their kids for the weekend, for the sole purpose of sexually assaulting them. As in, you take my 6 year old daughter and I'll take your 5 year old son for the day, no questions asked.

Okay, I can understand needing money/food/shelter and an adult woman prostituting herself, or an adult man.
But pimping out your own children?!?! These people are just wrong and so are the people who are buying these children.
Where is CPS? Oh, yeah, harrassing the moms who choose to breastfeed and co-sleep and not put diapers on their babes(EC)!!!


If CPS is not here to protect children, then what is their purpose?
How can there be 559 CHILDREN sold for sex?!?!?!?

CPS (or whoever is in charge there) took the kids.

As they do with anyone else who is caught.

Unfortunately, most of the time, it's not something simple, like looking at Craigslist to see who's selling their kids.

It's much more secret, via IMs and private chatrooms, etc. And that's why they (gov't) does those sting operations, and nab those who attempt to buy or sell their kids by posing as potential buyers or sellers.

I just cannot imagine that there are THAT many people buying children for sex. Seems more likely to be a handful of perpetrators and they should have been locked up a long time ago.
It really makes me question the jusitce system and the laws not in place to protect children, kwim?

This has been going on a long time. In India it is very common; children are brought up in brothels in Calcutta. There was a commentary done on it by an English newscaster....this was unbelieveable.

I also knew a lady personally who was a prostitute and had a six year old daughter that was brought up in that environment (in San Bernadino, CA), the little girl smoked grass and hung out with the adults. She didn't get signed up for school either (how did they get away with that?) With some of the people this woman associated with, they would pimp anything with legs: their mother, dog, whatever works....sickos!

At any rate child pornography is really child porn too....not just teen agers or underaged people...kids from birth on up. There was a man who worked in my building arrested and fired for a child pornography site he was running. He was an educated man too....a PHD in a science and he was principal investicator on falculty, and he was running this sort of thing. Wasn't because he was poor. The whole department was quite embarrassed about it. He was arrested but I do not know how much time he served.
