Human Trafficking in America

Bg

If you haven't seen it yet, the Star is running a series of articles this week about human trafficking in America. It's not something that you might think is a big problem here, but the U.S. attorney for Western Missouri has prosecuted more of those cases in the past three years than just about anybody, their office says. Day One, which lays out the problem, can be found here.

Day Two focuses on how human-trafficking and the sex trades interact. One big problem, Laura Bauer writes, is that many police investigators aren't trained to notice when a prostitute is actually a victim of human trafficking.
