Child Sex Slaves are the fastest growing segment of the abused population. unbelievable.. even the constant police stings, television show dragnets and numerous talk show set ups don't seem to deter these crimes. Why ?
there are children in America who are slaves, yes.
The Internet is said to have increased pedophilia more quickly than at anytime in history. there are more new registered sexual predators than at anytime in history; and many of them are children themselves. these children are the collateral damage because they were more than likely abused themselves before they became abusers. international child sex rings have proliferated so quickly that law enforcement agencies are hard pressed to keep up with even a fraction of their traffic and trade in pictures, movies and other items of exploitation.
