Highlights from the article:
  • In North Carolina
  • The 5 year old's mother sold her into prostitution.
  • As implied by the article, there are men in the US (and globally) who will rape a 5 year old.
  • Average age for prostitution is 12-14
  • Local motels and hotel chains need to step up their security and stop closing their eyes to the sex-trafficking problem. Also, they need to stop taking bribes from the pimps to keep their mouths closed.
  • Shaniya (the 5 year old) was killed during this process of selling and sex.
