One of the biggest problems with this “war on human trafficking” is that it has largely targeted registered citizens all the while we make up a very minute fraction of this issue. Until that is acknowledged and they stop targeting us, prostitution, especially forced prostitution, is not going away.

Again, from REASON Magazine:

“American Sex Police: With sweeping trafficking stings, the FBI returns to its roots as the nation’s vice squad” by Elizabeth Nolan Brown.

This article, from the digital edition of their print magazine, does require a subscription. As mentioned previously, it can be had for $15/year for the digital-only version.

Their website is, however, apart from individual articles from the print edition, available free of charge.

Want to actually stop human trafficking?

Then prevent people from being trafficked in the first place by stopping them from successfully being targeted and grabbed via a single global effort in every country simultaneously until trafficking is reduced to zero.

Well they (LE and likes) need to stop chasing law abiding RCs and start looking at the drug trafficking individuals, that Obama released, were it goes hand-in-hand with sex trafficking. Average person on the registry is not the career criminal profiteers that the human traffickers are. Many of these crooks are working in the back rooms of the police stations.

According to a Newsday article dated January 20, 2017 approximately 20 to 30 million people worldwide are victims of sexual exploitation and human trafficking, defined by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as modern-day slavery involving force, fraud, or coercion to obtain labor… Hmmm, ask yourselves… ISN’T THAT EXACTLY WHAT THE STATES ARE DOING TO REGISTRANTS!???
