    @Ken Anderson

    3 out of 123 found, were determined to show signs of sexual victimization. Can this be another case of cops "grandstanding", or am I dense.......

    "Signs" refers to physical harm. "Symptoms" can be emotional, traumatic, and even devastating without physical evidence.

    Quite true, but why then did they not mention "symptoms" also?

    Three cases were identified as being possible sex trafficking cases,

    Does that mean these 3 cases gave them what they needed to "rescue" all the children?

    All I meant by agreeing with you, was that the article is so lacking in information, it makes the headline seem a bit misleading, meant to cause an emotional reaction. Lots of headlines are like that. :rolleyes:

    Of course, I can't answer that. I'd like to know more, but...

    As a paramedic, I know that I wouldn't record something as a sign of an injury unless there were physical symptoms, so I suspect that's the case here. In many cases of sexual abuse of children, there are no physical symptoms, which is why these bastards get away with it so often or for so long.

    Because a lot of big, bad, powerful people are making a lot of money off of these kids and don't want us to know.

    I don't think all those kids came from that county Holly. The kids are "lost in the system kids, run aways, and I even believe some of these kids are being sold to these sex traffickers. Some of these kids have been stolen from their parents and never found. It's a really big business and as well planned as the drug business and almost impossible to take down. Especially when so many people are making so much money off of doing this.

    Dozens of police agencies were involved in the sting. So much is left unsaid in the articles that it's hard to tell, but it sounds like this must have been a large-scale sex trade operation, and probably one that they were watching for quite some time. This might have been a central holding place or something.

    And in so many other places too sadly. Baton Rouge here in Louisiana is said to be a one of sex traffickers main line cities. It makes me sick to think I used to live there and had no idea that was going on. But it's pretty much wide spread now...just like the drug business.

    Are you talking about the kidnapping of children Babs...or sex abuse?

    I know the latter goes on everywhere I was a victim myself... but if you mean kidnapping of children is going on everywhere I'd sincerely hope not... I'd be absolutely horrified and completely stunned if I learned of it happening here where I live...

    I'm talking about the taking of children by sex traffickers who sell them to perverts, etc. to fulfill their sexual fantasies. But yes I do believe the kidnapping of children can happen just about anywhere now days. And although sometimes the kidnapping is done by the parent who didn't end up with custody in a divorce situation, or for ransom, there is also evil people kidnapping children and selling them to perverts. I don't believe this is just happening here in the US. A lot of these children are even sent to other countries...sold to the highest bidder.

    Fox 17 has a story on it too, but I don't think they offer any additional information.

    Politics and other crap and suppositions aside ....

    You have to admit that it was a great thing that happened.

    I hope it has an impact on some of those who are taking these children for whatever demented purpose.

    On one hand I want the world to know we can do this .. on the other hand I fear it will result in children being shipped out of the country faster or ever killed.

    In the event that just occurred ... it's well done and let's keep going ... we need the children rescued and returned.

    It is my opinion that most of the children are being sold to the highest bidder in other countries.

    It's all for perverted sex Holly! And it's not just men doing the buying either. In the past I did a lot of research on this horrific business because of my love for children. I hate what is going on here and I pray all the time that no one will ever get a hold of my grandchildren, etc. and be able to do this to them. But it's happening all over and much more often than we know of. And it's so sick I get disgusted even thinking of it.
