FBI: 300 Child Prostitution Suspects Arrested, 21 Victims Rescued
Wednesday, June 25, 2008

WASHINGTON The FBI said Wednesday that 300 people were arrested and 21 young victims rescued in a recent round-up of child prostitution suspects.

"The mission of the 'Innocence Lost' national initiative is to combat the growing problem of sexual exploitation of children through prostitution," said Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Robert Mueller in making the announcement at headquarters.

Among those arrested are pimps and prostitutes some of whom are in their 20s but are said to have admitted selling sex since their early teens, federal law enforcement sources told FOX News.

To date, the federal child protection initiative has resulted in the recovery of about 433 victims, Mueller said.

The Justice Department said it targeted 16 cities as part of its "Operation Cross Country" that caps off five years of similar stings nationwide.

The recent raids occurred in run-down neighborhoods and interstate truck stops in cities across the country, the sources said. The vast majority of those arrested will be charged under state and local statutes.

Many of the children forced into prostitution are either runaways or what authorities call "throwaways" kids whose families have shunned them. Officials say they are preyed upon by organized networks of pimps who lure them in with shelter or drugs, then often beat, starve or otherwise abuse them until the children agree to work the streets.

The FBI was touting the fifth year of its child protection program with the news of the multitude of arrests that stemmed from "Operation Cross Country" launched late last week in 16 large and medium-sized cities including Dallas, Boston and Rockville, Md., among others.

Mueller was joined by Ernie Allen of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in speaking about the program and the round-up at Wednesday's press conference in Washington.

I worked for the Flatbed division at Larson for 8 months under dispatcher Steve Garry back in '08-'09. He fired me for "not taking the a pay cut". I already have been working for the pay cut for 2 weeks. Tarping pay was cut from $24 to $12 per load as well as 2 cpm. Then Larson fought my unemployment saying I quit. Then They said "I aniciated my firing". All I did was voice my complaint about the wage cut.I had to go to court to fight for my unemployment benefits. The judge saw through them and ruled in my favor.

Good thing then that the guy that did this to you is no longer there. I know this because he has not been with them since 2009. Many changes have taken place since then.
