Human Trafficking

For those who have no earthy idea what Human Trafficking means let me take a moment to enlighten you on the ignorance you've been harboring. Human Trafficking- "Human trafficking is the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purposes of sexual exploitation, bonded or forced labor. It has been identified as the fastest growing criminal industry in the world and is second only to drug trafficking as the most profitable." -Dream Project Foundation ex. money, drugs, a truck! (That's right, it was a pun at Putnam County, kentucky) Now that your are possibly awake and wondering why my blog contains such a graphic subject we can move on. Human trafficking happens all over the world (see end of article) not just in big cities or in third world countries. Human trafficking in it's self with a unharmed and over 18 victim is a class D felony. If the victim becomes harmed then the charge becomes a class C. If the victim is a minor (below the age of 18) then the charge is raised one level higher. -Links- 1.
