@Scrbblchick -- I saw that series you mentioned. It was heartbreaking. It was also infuriating that it happens in a country ostensibly so concerned about preserving human rights. There's no way to eliminate all crime completely, but it still made me mad.
Children most often end up as slaves because they have nowhere to go and are considered disposable. What's another kid, more or less? Plenty more where they came from. It's truly a depraved mindset.
At least in the USA, pimps and johns for 3 a.m. girls ought to serve at least five years in prison, mandatory, no pleas, no early release, period.
