It is important to note that those involved in human trafficking aren't always low-life street criminals; often they are professionals, business owners, parents, elected officials, teachers, or clergy. Human trafficking has a large footprint worldwide -- in cities and small towns -- it is everywhere.
Just this week, we've had reports of an Oakland, California based oral surgeon found guilty of sex trafficking and child pornography in the United States and Cambodia.
Another report saw a Kentucky attorney who pled guilty to five counts of promoting human trafficking for commercial sexual activity.
It should not go unnoticed or unmentioned that Facebook itself knew and profited from sex trafficking but took few steps to stop it, all but ignoring the issue all together.
As they say in New York, "if you see something, say something." You could be save a life.
