“No culture…worth emulation would tolerate this.”Date: 5/6/2012

Several recent articles I have come across speak to the issue of human trafficking as not being something that happens ‘over there' far away from ‘us.' In fact, human trafficking occurs at an alarming rate in the city I live near: Chicago. One of these articles appeared April 6, 2012, and is entitled, “Pimp gets 50 years at dramatic hearing” (full article: While the punishment administered is believed to be the toughest ever handed down to a convicted sex trafficker in Chicago's federal court, what really made me jump for joy were the words U.S. District Judge Charles Kocoras said at the sentencing hearing: “No culture … worth emulation would tolerate this.” Eloquent. To the point. Enough said.
