Throughout the D.C. area scores of beautiful young black girls have vanished, gobbled up into the recesses of inconceivable space. No one has warmed to any solidified notion as to what has happened to the girls, but a look around the area would point to sex trafficking.
Websites such as RT and us here at NCBN have long been aware of the horrors that surround the Metropolitan area. Any area, which is dominated by powerful men of influence, seems to always have strings of prostitution, prostitution that is underpinned by domestic sex trafficking. What do the young missing black girls have to do with this? The evidence of girls being abducted locally then exploited across the country, like a perverse carnival, has long been documented since the 1970s. The problem is, the young girls who are being manipulated are often charged along with their accusers due to dated prostitution laws.
The Metropolitan Police Department recorded 501 cases of missing children so far in 2017, and said 22 cases were open as of Wednesday.“We have received a lot of media attention and a lot of concern from the public because of the number of releases,” Dickerson said at a news conference on Friday. “There have been concerns that young girls in the District of Columbia are victims of human trafficking or have been kidnapped, or that there’s an increase in the number” who have gone missing.
While Lowery said the number of child abductions is down across the country, the level of runaway cases seen in DC and other major cities is particularly disturbing.
“Then there’s Linwood Barnhill, then 47, who resigned from the D.C. police department after his arrest in December 2013 on charges of pimping two D.C. girls, ages 15 and 16. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced in 2014 to seven years in prison.”
“That same year, D.C. police officer Marc Washington was arrested after allegedly going to the home of a 15-year-old who had been previously missing, ordered her to remove her clothing and took nude photos of her – all while he was on duty. He told the girl that taking nude photos of her was a part of the procedure for cases like hers. He committed suicide soon after being charged with making child pornography. Hundreds of photographs were found in his camera dating back to 2011.“
“In 2013, A Baltimore City police officer was arrested on criminal charges that included prostitution and human trafficking.
In April 2016, A police officer employed by the Los Angeles Unified School District was charged with the attempted sex trafficking of a child and use of the Internet to induce a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity.“
Independent operators, those sex traffickers that do not work for a crime syndicate, have learned that the money and access to these young girls has been made easy because of the internet. They have also learned, from the internet, the girls who are least likely to be investigated are minorities.
