People pay money to have sex with small children. There have been American men who have traveled to other countries to have sex with children.

... This case took place in the Provincial Court of British Columbia, with Mr. Peter Andrew Hodgeson as the accused. Hodgeson is being prosecuted for trafficking cannabis marijuana, for breaching trust in connection with his duties as a member of the Vancouver Police Department, and for breach of trust in connection with his duties by improperly accessing the Police Records Information Management Environment (PRIME) to obtain details of an arrest for purpose contrary to s. 122 of the Criminal Code. This case may have been chosen by the editor because it relates to current issues, such as the legalization of marijuana and the current shut down of many drug houses throughout the lower mainland. This case is similar to many others, in regards to trafficking cannabis marijuana; however, it varies in regards to the trafficker. It is a rare commodity to have a member of a police department involved with the trafficking of cannabis marijuana, let alone any type of drug or illegal substance. This case is intriguing to the public because many want to know the outcome of the accused; whether his prosecution will be just or if there will be lenience because of his position as a member of the Vancouver Police Department. The public’s interest relating to this case tells us that society has become more intrigued in regards to the trafficking of cannabis marijuana, as well as cases that involve members of police departments. The accused, Peter Andrew Hodgeson, has been prosecuted and...

Human Trafficking

...Human Trafficking United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) defines human trafficking as “the acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting them”. UNODC notes that every country of the world is affected by human trafficking crimes. Therefore, the United States is not an exception. Smuggling of migrants is also often labelled as human trafficking although there are certain distinctions between them. At the same time, Chacon (2986) fairly points out: “the line between smuggling and trafficking is becoming increasingly blurry”. The United States is an attractive country for migrants from all over the world. Illegal migration is one of the major concerns of the US government. This illegal migration is a part of a broader problem which is human trafficking. This paper is an attempt to explore how human trafficking affects the US economy, and specifically how it affects Houston. Migrant smuggling refers to assistance to individuals to cross borders illegally. Usually such assistance is provided for financial gain. Individuals may illegal cross border for various purposes such as performing labour, including sex services (Chacon, 2981). Migrant smuggling is usually conducted under the coercive conditions (Chacon, 2981). The United States is majorly a destination or a transit territory for human trafficking ("Humantrafficking.org "). By different estimates, 4,500 to 17,500 people per year are trafficked to the country......

...worse kind of illegal trade. Humans. Besides the illegal trade of weapons and drugs, human trafficking is the third largest illegal money-maker (Farr 2). Human trafficking is the purchase, sale, recruitment, harboring, transportation, transfer, or receipt of a person for the purpose of commercial sex (Gerdes 19). This being the world’s third largest illegal industry, it is rarely heard of and expressed. Human Trafficking is an enormous global problem. Of the estimated four million people who are trafficked around the world each year, over one million are trafficked into the sex industry. The volume keeps increasing. Researchers believe that the “actual” numbers are much higher than these estimates because many instances of trafficking go undetected (Farr 3). Researchers have concluded that sex trafficking is one of the most, if not the most, rapidly growing form of human trafficking (Farr 5). This industry is expanding at an ever accelerating rate, operating in marketplaces where supply and demand are high and risks to the traffickers are low, making it a highly profitable and enduring business (Farr 3). , The fastest-growing source region is the former Soviet States now known as the NIS (Newly Independent States). Not only did they serve as the fastest-growing source region, but also they were the introductory, contextual example of the supply side of sex trafficking. Most recent studies suggest that there are as many as 500,000 women from the NIS......

A global problem exists reaching every developed, developing, and undeveloped country on the planet. The first ever global forum to fight human trafficking was held February 13-15, 2008 in Vienna.

In attendance were delegates from more than 100 countries, law enforcement teams, business leaders, legislators, and recognized experts on human trafficking (United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, UNODC, n.d). The Executive Director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Antonio Maria Costa, described the problem as "a monster whose shape, size and ferocity we can only guess" (UNODC, n.d).

This type of slavery has been traced back to the ancient Mesopotamian and Mediterranean civilization and has continued to grow. What is human trafficking? Commonly referred to as "modern-day slavery" is the illegal trade of human beings in return for labor or for exploitation (Sex Trafficking in the U.S., 2013). “Trafficking in persons” means the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation.

...humanity. What is it? Sex trafficking. 20 million women and children are forced into the global sex trade. Just imagine a life constantly used as an object, constantly abused, without a name but only a number.Calling for help, whilst being kept silent. Why is it still happening? One of the root causes of sex trafficking is poverty corruption, which is reflected in the lack of educational and social work opportunities of men and women. Traffickers generally target women because of their societal isonlation, violence in family, access to education, employment and other resources. And because of the desperate economic situation, heavily influences on the availability and opportunities of employment for women. Thus traffickers prey on the women's vulnerability, luring and manipulating them into false promises, visas and work opportunities into subjugation, without women conscious of the work conditions instead to find themselves forced in the internal ring of prostitution. In some cases, families view their daughters as an economic burden, (hence) selling their daughter to a brothel.( Immediate cash will then be sent to the family )and receiving an immediate payoff (delete this part man) insufficiency of laws to obstruct the efforts in trying to fight sex trafficking Even in developed countries e.g. America traffickers manipulate using finesse pimping adolescent girls showering victims with gifts, love and attention. Victims of sex trafficking face ensnare......

Trafficking

..."Human Trafficking: The New Era of Slavery" When the word slavery comes to mind in the present day most people think of it as something that has passed, a long and tragic historical event that involved the capture and exportation and exploitation of human beings as forced labor with no freedom of movement or choice. Slavery brings to mind the forcible deportation of Africans into the new world, associated with colonization and empirical money making ventures, like sugar, coffee and cotton. Yet, the reality of the situation is that slavery exists today, and on an even greater scale than it did during the empirical era. Human trafficking is one of today's most egregious human rights violations. Traffickers prey on the most vulnerable members of society: people burdened with poverty, disabilities and discrimination. Trafficking in persons refers to the illegal trade or "sale" of human beings for sexual exploitation or forced labor through abduction, the use or threat of force, deception and fraud. It knows no gender, race, age, or even boundaries (due to globalization). (Perkins) Slavery today is often called by other names, like human trafficking and undocumented immigration as well as many other less savory monikers but it is still slavery and people are still stripped of human dignity, choice and human rights on a grand scale, be they women and children smuggled across national or international borders to forcibly participate in the shady sex trade or men, women and......

Many people are familiar with human trafficking, but do not hear about it as much as murders or robberies on the news. It is like it never happens. I always question myself about what can be done to put a stop to this and make people aware of this crisis. People are being taken and others do not even know what is going on around them. Nicholas Kristof is one of the individuals that is working towards making a change and helping other girls become free from this terrible experience. They create helpful organizations that put up a fight. Organizations are creating awareness towards the public about human trafficking. They are working on cases that involve the victims and have created groups to help overcome this life changing experience. Trafficking is a profitable industry. It has been identified as the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. It is second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable illegal industry in the world. In 2004, the total annual revenue for human trafficking was estimated to be between $5 billion and $9 billion (Cornell University). Even so, there are a lot of organizations out there helping. Many people are not aware about the human trafficking that is going on in the world and the things people go through while being trafficked.

...Fitzpatrick Human trafficking is a threat that occurs in the blink of an eye. It mugs people of their right of inherent freedom. It is indeed, heartless. The sufferers end devastated, dejected and defeated. Those victimised may never be able to live normal lives again especially from the physical, emotional and mental trauma. They live in constant fear and may up end being psychologically conceded. It is an immoral state in which is one of the greatest ethical challenges facing the modern times It paints a picture of inequality. With this, it is every right over his or her life, and the victims are bound to sell their freedom. We as a collective should create more awareness of human trafficking because it’s one of the most occurring/progressing crimes of today. We as a whole should consider looking more into it and how it contributes/effects so many. Firstly, why it is important and what is the reality of it. –What we don’t know about it and how it should more focused on in the media It has established itself as a 25 billion dollar industry which has its principal participants as financiers, unprincipled recruiters and unethical public officials. Slavery isnt been a problem that has been abolished, and it isn’t something that happens in undeveloped of backward countries either. It continues in the most developed countries in the world such as the U.S and UK As we grew up, we have been “taught” that we don't value one human life over another, yet, human trafficking......

Sex Trafficking

...Sex trafficking We live in a world that has acknowledged man's outright control over another. The unjustified exchange and subjugation of individuals in the twenty first century mirrors a ruffian situation which affirms that the best moral test confronting the globe today is sex trafficking. Sex trafficking is composed of two viewpoints: first is sexual slavery and the second is human trafficking. These two things show the supply and demand side of the sex trafficking industry, individually. This misuse depends on the communication between the traffickers offering a casualty (the individual being trafficked and sexually abused) to clients to perform sexual services. These sex trafficking violations are characterized by three stages: securing, development, and misuse. The different sorts of sex trafficking are youngster sex tourism (CST), household minor sex trafficking (DMST) or business sexual abuse of kids, and prostitution (Farley). The circumstances that sex trafficking casualties face fluctuate significantly. Numerous casualties turn out to be impractically required with somebody who then strengths or controls them into prostitution. Others are tricked in with bogus guarantees of a vocation, for example, demonstrating or moving. Some are compelled to......
