FBI: More resources needed to target trafficking online
By Melissa Boughton and Dave Munday
At the click of a mouse, almost anyone can buy a girl online, anytime.
Photos of young women posed in skimpy lingerie are posted next to short blurbs about how sexy they are and what they are willing to do for the right amount of money.
Special Agent Robert Brown oversees the FBI's criminal investigations in South Carolina. No agency has the resources to stake out motel rooms across the state or line up dates with the hundreds of “escorts” on Backpage to see which ones involve coercion or underage girls, he said.
Local agencies have a couple of detectives who monitor Backpage for clues, and two or three FBI agents also are assigned to the task, focusing specifically on finding minors being forced to sell themselves. But it's usually only when a victim escapes and asks for help or an investigator gets a credible tip that a trafficker is busted.
“More needs to be done and it has to do with resources,” he said. “We're not as proactive as we'd like to be.”
EDITORS NOTE: Straight out of some fat stupid doughnut eating pigs mouth: "If you just give us more of your hard earned money we will lose this war for you, just like Nam, just like the drug war, war on poverty, you name it."
Craigslist, a similar website, removed its “adult services” section in 2010, a move that was applauded by many state attorneys general and advocates fighting sex crimes.
Should We Trust Police Officers?
Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

THANK YOU for stopping by Underground America Inc.
Do yourself a favor. Think for yourself. Be your own person. Question everything. Stand for principle. Champion individual liberty and self-ownership where you can. Develop a strong moral code. Be kind to others. Do no harm, unless that harm is warranted. Pretty obvious stuff...but people who hold to these things in their hearts seem to be disappearing from the earth at an accelerated rate. Stay safe, my friends. Thanks for being here.
