28 Sexually Exploited Children Rescued In California Human Trafficking Operation

Just the tip of the iceberg.  This is where the slavery focus should be.  Living, breathing victims of slavery in the here and now, not the victims from 150 years ago.  There is no one alive today that can benefit from rehashing the Transatlantic Slave Trade of the 1800’s.  But if you put all of that time, energy, and money into the modern slave trade just think of how many innocent young lives could be saved.

There Are More Slaves Today Than at Any Time in Human History.

Dozens of sexually exploited children and adult victims were rescued across California during a statewide operation to combat human trafficking, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department announced Tuesday.

In total, 474 arrests were made, including 142 males on solicitation charges, and 36 males on suspicion of pimping, according to figures provided by the Sheriff’s Department.

Additionally 55 victims, 28 commercially and sexually exploited children and 27 adult victims were rescued.

“Operation Reclaim and Rebuild focused on rescuing victims of sexual slavery and human trafficking, providing victims with much-needed services, identifying and arresting their captors, seeking successful prosecutions, and disrupting the demand for vulnerable victims by targeting their customers,” the release stated.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
