    Agree 100%.

    Whenever child rapists are arrested by the gummint or local law enforcement, they tend to get slaps on the wrist, i. e. being sentenced to rehab, 5 years or less, told to wear GPS tracking, etc., or registering as sex offenders once freed.

    Sentences are even lighter (or non-existent) when members of Congress and/or the police themselves are involved in the offenses.

    Contrast this to the methods favored by members of the communities themselves to be able to deal w/child sex offenders.

    5 years or less as a child rapist in jail is not even close to being a slap on the wrist. They become pariahs in prison - as a large percentage of inmates don't really like child rapists. A large percentage of sexual offenders have to be separated from genpop. The punishment continues after they've left prison for most. They can't move to a neighborhood without people being notified they are there. States have dozens of laws in the books just to ensure if they even come within a mile of a kid, they have to notify their PO. So your "slap on the wrist" is about as subjective as it gets.

    Looks like they have made some money.....huh?

    The FBI typically does not investigate adult prostitution, leaving it as a state and local matter, but in recent years it has made child prostitution a priority in a program the FBI calls Operation Cross Country. The program includes highway billboards asking people to call the FBI with tips.

    About 1,350 people have been convicted as part of the program and at least 10 of them were sentenced to life in prison, officials said.

    The latest sweep was the seventh and largest under Operation Cross Country, they said.....snip~


    Taxes times 7. Can't have that now.....people might think someone was shooting craps.

    If we kill them, can we collect the death taxes from those profits? Seems like a win-win.

    I hope you understand that I was being extremely facetious in my comment. The FBI is attacking less than 1% of all child molestation cases. A kid is far more likely to be abused by their parent than they are by a stranger. However, nobody ever suggests killing the child molesting parent of a child. They only do that for "strangers". It's far easier to be an arm chair vigilante when you don't have to think about the family that would be further destroyed by killing the father/uncle/cousin of the victim.

    Yeah.....I knew you was. Figured I dropped in and at least show the Fed has been at least picking up on the game in recent years. Where before they weren't into it much. Bigger fish to fry and all.

    Apparently, there are higher-level pimps that are serving them, or else the FBI is shielding those pols.
    They didn't arrest any of the customers this time. Maybe that is coming.

    The FBI won't arrest any of its own members that are involved, nor any of the individuals (corrupt) agents are working for, nor any high ranking members of Congress that are involved.
