Omaha Man Faces Indictment for Trafficking Children
It is said in this article that Human Sex Trafficking is the Third most lucrative business in the world behind drugs and weapons. This, that is coming from the same people who said Las Vegas, Nevada has NO physical evidence of Human Sex Trafficking as a problem. Human Sex Trafficking is the second most lucrative business in the world. The children that are trafficked are mostly eleven to twelve years old. They become victims due to the fact they are runaways or children whose parents just don't care. That to me is so hard to understand. Being a mother, I fiind it hard not to love my child and I can't understand these parents that can just throw them away like trash. These people shouldn't breed! I use the word breed because there is no connections there. No feelings, but even a dog or any animal cares for it's young.
Prostitution is a dark world most people never see. Thursday, United States Attorney Joe Stecher showed us an even darker side of this world. It is the world where he says people like 28-year-old Amar Henderson traffic children for sex and then prostitute them for money.
Joe Stecher says, "This individual prayed upon these young girls. He used them. He abused them."
Henderson now faces three federal charges for trafficking minors for prostitution. Prosecutors say Henderson trafficked children from Omaha into Colorado, Iowa, Florida and Missouri from April of 2007 through May of 2008.
Stecher says Henderson is alleged to have transported the girls across state lines for the purpose of pimping them out.
Dr. Linda Burkle works for Salvation Army and is an expert on human trafficking. She says this crime is happening everywhere, in every state, and every country.
Dr. Linda Burkle says, "In 2008, we have more people that are enslaved than any other time in the history of this world."
Burkle says this indictment names three children victims, but there are between 200,000 and 300,000 more children victims out there.
