Craigslist´s Child Sex For Sale

 

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.

  the ´erotic services´ section  
 
is more like choosing how much you want to pay for chlamydia. it really should be banned, because not only can it be used to exploit girls, but it also exploits the men that seek out these services(no personal experience, but I´ve heard of guys just getting robbed upon arrival by some pimp. I also knew of some guys who would use similar methods(getting a guy to fuck an underage girl or someone who´s not his wife) in order to blackmail the poor fellow...

point is, craigslist erotic section is baaaad news.

"They" make money from it but "They" make more off of confiscating property.

  @ "20 times greater"  
 
I agree with the statement in general, that drug penalties can be worse than these human trafficking, and its definitely wrong.

But where does the figure "20x worse" come from? Anyone know more about this? It seems far-fetched to me that something with girls will have 1 year sentence and the drugs having 20.

For large amounts of a schedule 1 drug (10 gms LSD, for example), you can be charged with not less than 10 year in prison, and a $4 million dollar fine. That 10 year minimum can go up to life in prison. And that is for a first time offender. 2 or more previous offenses is mandatory life in prison.

Those same penalties also apply to someone who has 1000 or more pot plants.

One of the largest human trafficking cases ever involved the forced servitude of about 300 people. It resulted in 40 years in prison and a $1.8 million fine.
