Missing children rescued from Super Bowl sex trade in FBI sting

By www.Foxnews.com

imagesSixteen children as young as 13, and some of whom had been reported missing by their families, were rescued from the sex trade in a law enforcement sting operation that targeted alleged pimps who brought the victims to New Jersey for Super Bowl weekend, FBI officials said.

More than 45 pimps and their associates were arrested in the operation conducted by law enforcement, the FBI announced Tuesday. Some admitted traveling to New Jersey from other states for the purpose of forcing women and children to have sex with Super Bowl tourists for money, according to federal investigators.

“High-profile special events . . . have become lucrative opportunities for child prostitution criminal enterprises.” – Ron Hosko, FBI

“High-profile special events, which draw large crowds, have become lucrative opportunities for child prostitution criminal enterprises,” Ron Hosko, assistant director of the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division, said in a statement. “The FBI and our partners remain committed to stopping this cycle of victimization and putting those who try to profit from this type of criminal activity behind bars.”

The victims rescued during the sting operation range in age from 13 to 17 years old, the FBI said. Some of the minors include children previously reported missing by their families; others are foreign nationals.

The FBI worked with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies over a six-month period leading up the Super Bowl. The operation is part of the Innocence Lost National Initiative, established in 2003 by the FBI’s Criminal Investigative Division, in partnership with the Department of Justice and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, to combat child prostitution.

Authorities had made contact with more than 20 hotels in the New York City area on how to identify victims of sex trafficking, Special Agent in Charge James T. Hayes of Homeland Security in New York told FoxNews.com last week.

Hayes described human trafficking as an ongoing problem that law enforcement continually strives to eradicate and said many of the victims are foreign nationals, who are often from countries “where law enforcement isn’t trusted.”

    Like I said on the last comment about Mr. David Taylor, God revealing the predators to the cops was much more important than God focusing on a Superbowl teams scoring the winning point!

    While the Devil had Mr. Taylor focusing on the Super Bowl, He had the task force saving children/people that needed rescuing!!

    Thank you Jesus for not being Carnal minding like we sometimes can be!!!

    Really? If most of the children are from other countries where the law can’t be trusted then why are we finding them here? Why were all these hotels involved and why did pimps say large events a lucrative? Because it’s a big problem here as well.

    Praise the Lord!! I have prayed an intercessory prayer over this past week that the Lord placed in my heart to pray for these babies and the capturing of these snakes. Hallelujah! Give God the praise!!!

    Praise God, I see this as prayers answered. I am so aware of how human trafficking is affecting so many children. And how they are forced to ” service” all these demonically sex crazed people. I praise God that some of these kids were found. I don’t know their names or their faces. All I know is that they are going back to their families who missed them dearly. Next part of my prayer answered was for the pimps to get locked up, bc if they are not able to go back, the kids that are entrapped have a better chance of getting out. Praise God. People, pray for these kids, many teens, Tweens, children, and adults who were regretfully and painfully made to ” service ” many “clients” while other children happily sat with their loved ones and enjoyed watching the Super Bowl. Pray for the forgotten children. Amen. And I give glory to God because He does answer prayers…..praise my God!

    Thank you to all the women and men involved in helping these people and arresting the sick people whom deserve judgement by our courts. I’m ecstatic to pay taxes to bring forth such efforts, by these law officials, that worked so hard to find the criminal activity.

  7. Occupying Til He Comes

    Thank God for the rescue of these vulnerable victims. May God bless them with a safe future and return or establishment into caring guardians.

    May God bless all the legal officers who practically enforced the law in spite of the activities of this new world wide “god” of sports which pre occupies the minds of so many.

    I pray that the enforcement which is too rare worldwide, will continue and that at least social workers will do some follow up on all especially the youngest of the victims.
