A problem that is happening throughout the world and in America is the sexual exploitation of children for the sake of adults of a depraved character. Instances of child abduction have been shown to be for these purposes, for the sake of child prostitution.
When I was 13 years old there was an attempted abduction against me. It was some time after nightfall and I was riding my bike to the towns square. On the way there a van stopped across the street and two men got out and started to chase me. I screamed and peddled faster and thankfully they did not manage to catch me. I went home crying and told my father but he didn’t do anything about it, I am guessing that he did not fully comprehend what I was saying. Some people’s minds might filter out information that does not agree with their world view and my father might have not fully grasped what I was saying.
There is a portion of pedophiles who engage sexually with children of the opposite sex, a significant portion are homosexual though. Both male and female children are equally at risk of being abducted by perverts who are either doing so for their own depravity or who may be part of some sort of organized operation. Below is a video documentary made by The British and was to be aired on the discovery channel in America but was banned from being aired on the discovery channel due to political pressure. It is about the Franklin case. This documentary speaks of how an organized child sex slavery ring was operating in America, this ring may still be operating today and there very well may be other organizations like it in America. This documentary documents how rich and powerful politicians and business leaders were engaging with child prostitutes. Some people have speculated that these people may have at times been blackmailed as a result of these interactions.
In the comments section there will be links posted that deal with this particular case and the problem of child trafficking.
