After years of investigation, recording, surveillance, and convictions, federal authorities have acquiesced to the fact that Atlanta is the leading city in child prostitution cases. After so many years of aggressive campaigns and advocacies, it is unfortunate to learn that there’s still almost five hundred child and minor prostitutes in Atlanta and majority of this number are people aged 14 or younger.
A lot of prostitution laws were changed and Atlanta PD even created a special task force in order to curb the problem. The public were even invited in meetings and forums to share whatever they can. But still, the problem looms and there’s no stopping for this very lucrative business.
The main issue in Atlanta is that many young women are becoming more stable as soon as they enter the prostitution trade. What happens is that children below 18 who find life miserable and money absent resort to prostitution in order to be independent and self-sufficing. After which they eventually develop a strong and loyal bond with a pimp who looks for the customers for her.
As a manifestation of trust and loyalty, child prostitutes often do not cooperate with the police when they are caught. They are keener to protecting their jobs as well as the identities of their pimps.
As for crime networks that run the show there is always bigger money in child prostitution. In a way they become more confident when using children since they are easier to convince, intimidate, or deceive.
The problem is in fact growing for the entire state of Georgia. Without anyone providing an aggressive attention and solution towards the issue, we might be expecting a hundred percent increase in the number of child prostitutes in the state in no time and that’s horrible.
