    This has been going on so long I really don’t see how this is kept underground. I personally know 3 women who this has happened to and the first one was over 30+ years ago. I see young amateur pimps doing this just to make extra cash to subsidize their theft cash. Dan Rather did a story on this a couple of years ago and I thought he promised to stay on the story…but I havent heard back from him. They find young girls who aren’t happy at home, hook them on drugs…rape them to make them feel broken then put them on the streets, many times shipping them out of State …. it’s a huge network. I don’t understand how someone hasn’t put a target on this…it’s heartbreaking and angers me personally to no end.

    Jillian Mourning is my daughter and lived a life of hell in this horrible crime. I applaud her for her courage to speak out on this epidemic. She is turning this into a positive by having created her non profit organization, All We Want Is LOVE. Now she is a finalist for the award Do Something airing on VH1 July 31sy at 8pm. I couldn’be more proud!

    me gustaria q se acabe de una ves por todas el tabu q tienen con los genitales del sexo masculino. oviamente q hay orarios para toda clase de emisiones, pero me llama curiosamente la atencion el porque de sensurar o tratar de no mostrar algo tan natural como los genitales masculinos.
