Weekly Censors "human trafficking" for the third time

Original post made by Author, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Oct 27, 2011

CNN is doing a massive campaign for the cause of HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Web Link

900,000 humans are kidnapped, stolen, traded, sold and enslaved

per year. Human trafficking is the third most lucrative underground trade, drugs number one and arms number two.

Westerners ARE the largest percentage of customers of child sex.

Pleasanton is NOT imune!

I don't believe they would censor something like this without a good cause. After all, have they not be accused of being a liberal site?

They may feel it's not suitable for this venue.

BTW, I agree on the human trafficking. Most Americans do not have a clue.

California sex offenders found in foster homes: Web Link

There is a sex offender living in a foster home in Vallejo. Pretty close to home. There are also sex offenders living in Pleasanton. It's well known who they are...they're listed online with photos.

Watch your kids. Review safety rules to protect kids. If you even suspect, report to the PPD. Talk to your neighbors re: best practices to protect young people from sex predators. Never allow you kids to be ALONE in the presence of clergy from any faith.

It's my impression that the USA, the President/Congress is not the least bit interested in the trafficking of children.

it stumps me that so few Americans care that children are sold into sexual slavery...and, not much happens to protect them?

Seems that the subject of human trafficking/child sex slaves in our country is WAY too much for most to even think about, so to AVOID the subject altogether is the norm.

There IS something that everyone can do! CLICK the CNN link and look at what YOU can do.

Weather the Weekly censored the post about the large corporate owned apartment complexes as RELATED to this very topic, for whatever reason, wake up!

"a sex offender's spouse running a facility"

In my opinion, this is a big problem: when the spouse of a sex offender gives the sex offender a "nice front" and can get away with volunteering, etc where children are present.

In my opinion, if a sex offender is married, his/her spouse should not be allowed to host children parties or volunteer where children are present or be a foster parent - this may be unfair to the spouse, but it protects the children, and isn't the safety of a child more important than anything?

Think about the Garridos: the guy was married, but did that stop him from hurting an innocent child? No, and in fact his wife helped him.
