FBI Sting Frees 82 Child Sex Slaves, Captures 239 Pedophile “Masters”

“Just the tip of the iceberg…”

Some good news for a change!

The FBI says dozens of pimps, prostitutes and associates have been arrested under international efforts to combat underage human trafficking. The FBI says 239 child-sex traffickers and their associates were arrested and 82 children were rescued from Oct. 13 to 16 as part of Operation Cross Country X.

“This is a depressing day in law enforcement,” said FBI Director Comey, “because this is the world we live in and the work we have to do.”

But it is also a proud day for law enforcement, he added, “because there are people who spend every day worrying about how to rescue these children. They are true heroes.”

Among the 82 juveniles recovered during the three day operation were two sisters in Milwaukee, ages 16 and 17, who told authorities that their mother was their pimp, the FBI said in a news release. The girls said their mother also rented out their brother’s room to a registered sex offender.

Operation Cross Country is part of the FBI’s Innocence Lost National Initiative. Since its creation in 2003, the program has resulted in the identification and recovery of more than 6,000 children from child sex trafficking.

“Operation Cross Country aims to shine a spotlight into the darkest corners of our society that seeks to prey on the most vulnerable of our population,” said FBI Director Comey. “We are not only looking to root out those who engage in the trafficking of minors, but through our Office for Victim Assistance, we offer a lifeline to minors to help them escape from a virtual prison no person ever deserves.”

Operation Cross Country is now in its tenth year (hence, “X”) and has expanded to become an international enforcement action, with Canada, Cambodia, the Philippines, and Thailand joining the FBI and its local, state, and federal law enforcement partners—along with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC)—during the coordinated three-day operation that ended October 16.

Putting an end to sex trafficking, especially to the trafficking of minors, is a bipartisan issue if ever there were one. Justice is way bigger than politics, of course, but the two are related. In political terms, I think this development shows us two things:
First, I think Director Comey is highly relieved to be done with the fallout from Hillary Clinton’s investigation, because he can now devote his attention to issues that truly keep LEO’s awake at night: rescuing the enslaved, defending the weak, and punishing the wicked. Further, this kind of bravery could go a long way to restoring his honor in President Trump’s eyes.

Second, the walls are closing in on the pedo-sex ring that we have been reporting on for weeks, involving the Podestas and numerous other Democratic bigwigs. This sting may even be a warning signal to the “pizza party” perverts that the FBI is onto them. Stay tuned for ongoing coverage of this heinous scandal being dragged into the light one day at a time.

The other good news is that this major FBI sting comes just over a month after the CEO of the Dallas-based sex site, Backpage.com, was arrested. As Director Comey mentioned, it’s actually unfortunate when law enforcement succeeds in busting so many lawbreakers, because the more they arrest, the bigger it shows the problem is.

In that sense, sex traffickers are like cockroaches: if you see one, then there are dozens more you’re not seeing. That is why experts don’t think the arrest of the Backpage.com CEO, Carl Ferrer (55) will put a serious dent in the larger sex trafficking problem.

“Unfortunately with the availability of pornography,” Alicia Inns reports for KXAN News, “it just kind of stimulates the demand. And it’s rampant.”

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates in the last five years, the number of child sex trafficking cases on the internet has increased over 800 percent. One of the biggest problems is attributed to increased access to the internet.

“I think now that there are those who may not have acted out on it in the past who are acting out on it now because it’s a lot more available because of places like Backpage.com and all the different sites,” said Lt. Robert Richman with the Organized Crime Division of the Austin Police Department.

All we can do is offer our support to the brave law enforcement officials doing this “dirty job,” and our prayers for the victims who are still in bondage.
