The COVID-19 pandemic will push 47 million more women and girls into extreme poverty, she said, “but business is booming for the traffickers.” 

Its articles like this that deeply sadden and deeply anger me. I say anyone cought trafficking humans for sex should be hung in public, and I don’t mean in a TV studio with cameras.

My vote is to attack the underlying causes of human trafficking so there won’t be any human traffickers.

I couldn’t agree more.

My paramour, with the US Justice department, 'investigates' & prosecutes trafficking in NYC and said there has been a steady and significant rise in the 'activity'. She has unkind words for those 'organizations' that engage in such, she says there is no functional description for the evil.

In several cities in the U.S. this past year, the police did stink operations saving many children from human trafficking. The press gave it zero concern. It seems like the World is taking things like pedophilia lightly nowadays. Disgusting!

Yes, a very sad topic without question, of course, but look, there’s absolutely no correlation to corona pandemic. That all takes place for many many thousands of years now and has nothing to do with viruses. Also, corona pandemic doesn’t care if you solve those society problems or not, it just spreads increasing exponentially every day. The solution obviously cannot be to loosen all restrictions for less domestic violence and crimes against women and children, but we all die through COVID altogether then, isn’t that easy to understand in the current situation?

"Stink operations"??? If you are referring to the many kidnapped kids rescued over the past summer and fall by Federal law enforcement these were covered widely in the press.

Another right-winger barking out their talking points who clearly didn't fact-check themselves before posting their rant.

It seems like the World is taking things like pedophilia lightly nowadays.

Considering this presumption is based on the previous incorrect assertion, it's a pretty circumspect conclusion, considering I personally have never seen anyone treat pedophilia lightly.

What I have seen is people making fun of those stupid enough to believe in fake pedophile rings being run out of pizza parlor basements. That's not being light on pedophilia though, that's laughing at people who clearly lost out on the intelligence game in life.

There have been several prominent news accounts of how the QAnon conspiracy has managed to hijack the legitimate Save the Children organization name in a hashtag and in the process has acted to discredit them by associating them with a lunatic conspiracy with no basis in fact. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction where an organization that does the hard work of tracking down child traffickers and saving kids is made to look like a bunch of kooks by a bunch of kooks spouting a conspiracy about abused kids. Only in the US sadly.
