    @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.
