Letters: Freeing sex slaves

September 05, 2013

Re "'It's modern-day slavery,'" Column, Sept. 1

I am not sure what was more sickening: contemplating 12-year-old sex slaves, or a society that allows the criminal behavior of rape and exploitation to go virtually unpunished, with a small fine and a misdemeanor charge. Who are these so-called human beings who would subject a young girl to the horrors of prostitution?

This diminishes all of us. No intent or amount of societal reform makes any sense unless we find a way to stop this most inhumane behavior against children.
