PIMPS RECRUITING GIRLS ON FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM

A Fort Worth pimp known as “Zigg” has been sentenced to life in federal prison for sex-trafficking children in a statewide operation that existed for more than a year.

He and other co-defendants provided cellphones, rooms, lubricants and condoms, and used threats of violence, sexual assault and intimidation to control the victims, according to federal prosecutors.

Some of the young girls were recruited on Facebook and Instagram.

Child predators, pimps, and child traffickers are no longer limited to a certain locale in their hunt for vulnerable small children and teenagers.  The internet has given them a world-wide audience in which to find and trap their prey.

The predators use social media sites to seek young and impressionable children, offering them jobs as models or a part in a movie that doesn’t exist.  Predators feed on the insecurities and naiveté of the young, and … are experts at manipulation and entrapment.  Predators start with the very young.  As a parent … so should you!

I suggest you talk to your children about child predators at the earliest age appropriate for your child.  Explain what a child predator is and where they can be found.  Explain to your child, the methods often used by a child predator.  Knowledge is the best protection you can give your child.
