Ohio is Becoming a Common Human Trafficking Hub

Imagine this – there are actually thousands of American children and immigrants who are either forced to work or become child prostitutes each year in the state of Ohio. Though it’s uncommon to label any American state as a hub for sex trafficking, Ohio has in fact become one.

Now let’s see why:

Current numbers show that in a year, more than 1,000 US minors and about 800 immigrants (most entered the country illegally) are placed in sex dens and sweatshops. One of the main reasons why Ohio is an ideal place for this of trade is because of its nearness to the Canadian border and if you’re familiar with it, Toronto Airport is a very popular destination and meeting point of international child trafficking.

The State commission thinks the problem is attributed much to the rapid increase of immigrants. Canadian and American culprits find it more appealing to establish trade in Ohio because of the abundance of commodities – immigrant women and children.
Nonetheless, there’s perhaps the same blame to be placed on state laws as well.

If we carefully look into the state legislation, there is almost zero laws concerning human trafficking and if there is, they’re absolutely weak. Suffice to say, weak laws immediately correspond to weaker law enforcement. The police force cannot act assertively without the basis of a sufficient law to bring offenders to justice.

For instance, child prostitutes are labeled as delinquents so what happens is that blame is placed on the child’s shoulder while the real adult offenders are somehow bailed out for the crime. What needs to be done perhaps is to treat them as victims rather criminals. The ones deserving to be punished are the criminal network groups and offenders who make the issue worse for the whole state.

Mostly, the police found and arrested adult prostitutes and pimps. When the police go after underage prostitutes they mostly find and arrest adult prostitutes and johns. Why are the police wasting their time on adult prostitutes? Instead of spending that time going after underage prostitutes?

Why aren’t the police finding millions of children forced against their will to have sex for money? Because their aren’t millions of them. And what proof do they have that they were forced against their will?

Why are the police just finding, and arresting consensual adults? Because the child victims either don’t exist or are very few in number. They use the excuse of children to arrest consenting adults. If they are just after children, they why don’t they leave the consenting adults alone? The police arrest the consenting adults that they find Why?

If there is no children involved – why arrest the consenting adult prostitutes, johns, and pimps? They are no children involved? Why are the police wasting their time on adult prostitutes? Instead of spending that time going after underage prostitutes? Because the police are mostly after adult prostitutes, not children.

Were all the underage prostitutes forced and raped? crying, kicking and screaming while being forced, against their will to have sex for money?

If a prostitute is 17 and under the age of 18, she can not give legal consent. So, she could have wanted to be a prostitute, and given consent for sex, but since she is underage, she can not give legal consent, so legally she was “forced” even if she gives total consent to sex and it was consensual - she was “forced” according to the court and justice system. There is a BIG difference between being legally “forced” and truly being physically forced against someone’s will.

This gives the impression that all prostitutes under the age of 18 are “forced” when they may in fact, not have been. If fact, if two people who are both 17 years old have sex, they both are legally considered to be victims and sex predators at the same time. It is strange how the justice system works.

Here is a good article from the Washington Post about this:

Human Trafficking Evokes Outrage, Little Evidence
U.S. Estimates Thousands of Victims, But Efforts to Find Them Fall Short

There is hard evidence that the sex slavery/sex trafficking issue continues to report false information and is greatly exaggerated by politicians, that receive fund from the government.



When the police arrest customers of prostitutes and the prostitutes themselves:
They try to get the adult women prostitutes to say that they were forced and victims of sex trafficking even though they weren’t.
These adult women just flat out say, ‘Nope, that’s not what’s happening.’ No one is forcing me”
Then the U.S. Attorney general, senators, the police and government officials say:
“We have to help them realize they are victims,”
They must be brainwashed by their pimps, and johns.
They say that adult women do not have the ability to make decisions for themselves about sex, therefore
The government must make all their decisions about sex and who they have sex with for them.
So… the police are trying to invent victims? Where no victim exist?
The adult women say that no one is forcing them to work in prostitution and the police don’t believe them?
So the police want these adult women to lie? and the police are forcing the women to lie about being forced?
I thought lying was wrong? And isn’t it against the law to lie? -Not for the police, attorney general and other government officials.
