Craigslist founder Craig Newmark received a letter from two girls asking him to get rid of their adult services section on craigslist. The letter states that craigslist is being used to sell sex with children.
According to the Department of Justice, every year in the United States there is 100,000 to 300,000 children sold for sex, usually in the age range of 11 and 14 years old.
The government spends more money to fight drug trafficking as opposed to human trafficking. Cocaine penalties are 20 times greater than human trafficking penalties in the United States.
