    Thank God! I hope the kids get the help and healing they'll need. I hope they understand how they were manipulated.

    Is this what happens to some of our missing children?
    Some it may be worse than death. How do pimps sleep at night?

    That is honestly great to hear.

    passionflower; I keep hearing of runaway children being basically kidnapped off the street by pimps. There was a group of pimps in Maine of all places that controlled girls as young as 13. The details were horrendous, they tortured the ones that tried to leave in ways I won't repeat.

    Edit; here is an interesting bit from a linked article-

    I hope that becomes a trend throughout the US.

    Thanks Dan.
    I hope they find some of the missing amongst the girls.

    Dear God.
    I hope none of them go back out in the street.
    Thank you

    It is heartbreaking to know that adults will do this to a child. I hope and pray these children get the love, help, and security they deserve. My love and prayers are with them all. I hope they can be returned to their families and they will have the healing they need and deserve.

    I believe there is a special place in He!! for those who would do this to a child! May God have mercy on them while they rot in prison!

    Very cool. All 50 states have to make pimping an "A" felony, just like kidnapping or rape. I once saw a very good documentary on showtime called "Very Young Girls", about minors getting pimped out by these swine:

    I highly recomend it.
