Two arrested in human trafficking case
Why is it we are seeing so much human trafficking as of late? Is it because we have an overabundance of people taking advantage of the weak and the young?
Seldom does a child recover completely from rape and sexual exploitation. Many go forward appearing to live normal lives, but the scars they carry stay with them for life. Most feel a severe guilt because of the abuse their treated with by those in control. Low self-esteem and fear of physical contact with others I believe are also a problem. And, there are those that abuse others as they had been abused. My point is that these children victims have to live with the scars created by these events, and we have got to find a way to better protect children. And, the problem is not just in the U.S. but world-wide.
In the subject story two men get arrested for trafficking and prostitution of three teenagers, one of which is disabled. Is it so difficult for man to get sexual gratification that they have to resort to abusing children? Actually, their problem is not that the opportunity does not exist for sexual relations, because they probably can easily find a sexual partner or may even be married or have a girlfriend. These folks just want whatever sick enjoyment they derive from abusing children. Why do we allow them to continue to live in our society?
Think about it. We catch them, incarcerate them, and release them to do it again. Their victims are scarred for life. Why is the penalty for such so little that these people get a second and third chance at hurting others? Why is the penalties for human trafficking so little that these people get a chance at life at all? Why don’t we make such abuse a “death penalty” offense and fulfill our obligation to put the convicted to death.
How many people do these criminals cause harm to when they take someone’s child and sexually exploit them or prostitute them to others? So why do we allow someone that causes so much pain to others to live in our society? I’m just asking the question, do not really expect an answer strong enough to make a difference.
