Pure Evil: The Boys and Girls Being Sold for Sex During COVID-19 and the Super Bowl, by John W. Whitehead

This is a tough article to read. The numbers are almost as disturbing as the crimes. From John W. Whitehead at rutherford.org:

Children are being targeted and sold for sex in America every day.”—John Ryan, National Center for Missing & Exploited Children

Even in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic, there’s no stopping this year’s Super Bowl LV showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While the winner of the Vince Lombardi Trophy is up for grabs, we already know the biggest losers: the hundreds of young girls and boys—some as young as 9 years old—who will be bought and sold for sex, as many as 20 times per day, during the course of the big game.

The Super Bowl is kind of deemed as the weekend to have sex with minors,” said Cammy Bowker, founder of Global Education Philanthropist.

It’s common to refer to this evil practice, which has become the fastest growing business in organized crime and the second most-lucrative commodity traded illegally after drugs and guns as child sex trafficking, but what we’re really talking about is rape.

Adults purchase children for sex at least 2.5 million times a year in the United States.

It is estimated that the number of children who are at risk of who are at risk of being bought and sold for sex would fill 1300 school buses.

Yet as shocking as those numbers may be, this COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in even greater numbers of children being preyed upon by child sex traffickers.

According to a recent study on human trafficking during the pandemic by Thomson-Reuters and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, school closures due to the pandemic, which have forced children out-of-school and subjected them to more online exposure, have made them especially vulnerable to sexual predators.

The internet, with its web cams and chat rooms—a necessity for virtual classrooms—has become the primary means of pimps targeting young children. “One in five kids online are sexually propositioned through gaming platforms and other social media. And those, non-contact oriented forums of sexual exploitation are increasing,” said researcher Brian Ulicny, who co-wrote the Thomson-Reuters study.

It’s not just young girls who are vulnerable to these predators, either.

  1. Excuse my ignorance, but where are the police and media reports on all those missing Children. 500,000 lordy lordy. I have lived in a variety of countries all over the world and never did hear of missing children. Some of the countries I refer to (if you are interested) are Germany, Hungary, Holland, Tunisia, Algiers, Saudi Arabia, New Zealand, or are those the countries where this doesn’t happen? Just asking! Did I miss something?

    • It would be difficult to get exact numbers, but I know here in New Mexico we have frequent reports of abducted children and I assume it’s the same in other states. It’s unclear how many of those abductions are part of custody and divorce disputes, but that’s certainly a factor.

  2. I respect your comment Robert, but shouldn’t things like this be more out in the open? This is serious stuff as far as I am concerned, not only children but the whole thing of Human Trafficking. It’s terrible that people can do things like that to other people, to me that means that nothing has changed since the days of the Slave Traders. Sad, very sad. Shame on governments for not addressing those serious issues.

    • Yes indeed, things like this should certainly be more out in the open. That’s why I post these articles, particularly from Whitehead, who does his homework. As for governments, Jeffrey Epstein’s flight log is perhaps answer enough why governments do not addressing this issue–many officials and politically connected individuals are pedophiles themselves. Also, it’s a big illicit business, and like all big illicit businesses it throws off bribes to politicians and other government officials.
