SHOCKING: Justice Department Accused of Failing to Pursue Sex Traffickers

Posted on | July 31, 2012 | 8 Comments

An article in the August issue of Townhall magazine describes disturbing failures by the Department of Justice in investigations of human traffickers, including cases involving the sex slavery of minors. FBI informant Brandon Darby said he and human trafficking expert Dottie Laster “presented dozens of cases to the FBI,” but that the agency failed to investigate the cases.

“Many of the cases involved minors who were being forced to have sex with adults for monetary reasons under the threat of violence from human traffickers,” Darby writes in the article entitled, “FBI Informants Speak Out: Eric Holder’s DOJ Is Ignoring Child Sex-Trafficking Victims.”

“We felt assured by our research that it was a matter of law and a matter of internal policy that the FBI had to investigate and act on cases where minors were identified as being involved,” Darby writes. “But the majority of the cases . . . never turned into investigations for the FBI –even the ones involving children that the FBI was mandated to act on.”

Darby writes that an FBI Special Agent with whom he and Laster worked to initiate investigations of such cases was subsequently transferred.

    Maybe Holder is worried some high profile Democrat donors might get caught in the net.

    The oddest part of this is that many of the ignored cases clearly fall under categories they are obligated to pursue by specific statutory language.

    All things considered not odd at all.

    C’mon, Stacy! Get to the important details of the case: what color were the perpetrators? That could explain the lack of interest from the oxymoronically named Obama Justice dept.

    The modern Democrat party is the party of and for criminals. Once you realize that, their behavior makes perfect sense.

    Must be an Anti-Bush-43 measure. Bush 43 signed an EO requiring all members of the Executive Branch to Combat Trafficking in Persons (CTIP).

    Or, the traffickers are bundlers for Obama.

     It’s pretty simple. When pimps vote, they vote Democratic. Underage sex slaves don’t vote at all.
