Real Men Get Their Facts Straight: Ashton and Demi and Sex Trafficking

Categories: Crime-iny, Main
In the latest installment of Village Voice Media's investigation into the yawning gulf between myth and reality when it comes to underage sex trafficking in the United States, this week's cover story takes on a series of public-service announcements spearheaded by Ashton Kutcher. The story points out that the figure of 100,000 to 300,000 children trafficked for sex each year (which Kutcher and many others have repeated) doesn't hold up to any kind of serious scrutiny.

Further, the piece presents actual teen-prostitution figures based on statistics from police departments within 37 major cities in the U.S., as well as the FBI, over a 10-year period--and the annual tally, while certainly tragic, is far, far lower than the oft-cited 100,000 to 300,000.

I'm not sure I understand the Village Voice Media's purpose for trying to rebutt the argument with facts and statistics regarding ARRESTS of under age prostitutes. These are completely different facts than Kutcher or anyone else has presented. Other than to save their own precious ad revenue, there is no purpose to what the Village Volice has presented.
