Human trafficking needs worldwide attention | Opinion

Victims of human trafficking are often threatened, coerced, abused, abducted, or deceived by someone with a position of power in order to keep them powerless and at bay. With nearly 6,000 reported cases of human trafficking in the year 2015 and about 25,000 cases reported since 2007, it is safe to say that human trafficking is a growing problem poisoning todays society.

Human trafficking is often split into two main categories: sex trafficking and labor trafficking.

Sex trafficking is the transportation, recruitment, or harboring of a person by force or coercion for the purpose of commercial sexual acts. Sex traffickers target victims and then use violence, threats, false promises, and other cruel forms of control to use victims for their own greedy benefit landscaping ideas on a budget and profit. The demographic and details of sex trafficking varies from case to case. While 61.2 percent of cases involve an adult victim, a staggering 36.7 percent of sex trafficking cases reference a victim under the age of 18 years.

Out of these statistics, all derived from the NHTRC, or the National Human Trafficking Resource Center, 90 percent are female victims and only 4.8 percent of victims are men. Women and young girls alike are all too often becoming victims of forced sexual labor.

While men and transgender persons can experience the trauma of sex trafficking, the victims reported are predominantly female. Out of 2,492 sex trafficking cases involving pimp-controlled prostitution, over 40 percent of these cases referenced victims under the age of 18 and a sweeping 88.72 percent of those cases involved female victims.

Furthermore, out of 902 commercial front-brothel, or establishments concealed as legitimate businesses to hide commercial sexual activity, cases 44.56 percent of victims were adults and a low 8.87 percent of reported victims were minors under the age of 18. In those cases, according to the NHTRC, 72.28 percent were female victims and 2.00 percent of victims were men.

Sex trafficking is becoming a real problem in the United States. While it is true that many cases of human trafficking involve trafficked persons of foreign nations or victims who have immigrated, legally or otherwise, it is also true that the federal definition of human trafficking includes both victims who are foreign persons, persons who are immigrants, and those which are citizens of the United States of America. In fact, 36.6 percent of potential victims are citizens of the United States. No one state is safe from this danger. California, Texas, Florida, New York, Ohio, and Virginia, are the top six states, respectively, for human trafficking in the U.S.

Even our very own Arizona has had 388 reported cases in the year 2015. This year alone there have been 116 cases reported already. Out of these reports, 82.76 percent are sex trafficking cases and 4.31 percent are sex and labor trafficking front yard landscaping ideas pictures cases. This is just Sex trafficking alone. Labor trafficking is a whole other story.

Labor trafficking, all though just as awful, is slightly different than sex trafficking. Labor trafficking is the receipt, harboring, or transportation of persons against their will to perform acts of labor.

Just as sex traffickers use lies and coercion to lure victims into their trap, labor traffickers use violence, threats, and lies to keep victims cornered. Types of labor trafficking often include, but are not limited to, debt bondage, forced labor, and involuntary child labor.

While it is popular to think that labor trafficking is restricted to dark, dangerous factory settings, it is true that labor trafficking has a diverse set of venues.

In fact, only 0.2 percent of the reported labor trafficking cases reside in a factory or manufacturing setting. Many of the cases involve farming settings, traveling sales crews, peddling rings, bars and clubs, construction, landscaping services, restaurant and food services, beauty and health services, and many other diverse settings.

All of these branches of forced labor and labor trafficking affect a variety of people. In the year 2015 alone, a total of 721 cases of labor trafficking were reported in the U.S. Out of these 721 cases, 333 of the victims were male and 411 of the victims were female.

Regarding age, 581 of these reported victims were adults above the age of 18, while the other 114 victims were minors falling below the age of 18. Although these numbers may seem high, it is fortunate that the number of cases reported since 2013 has significantly lowered.

Previously, there were 871 cases of labor trafficking reported in the year 2013 and 818 cases reported in the following year. Fortunately, a decrease in the number of cases could mean that the practice of labor trafficking is dying off. However, dont be fooled by this fortunate outcome. Trafficking is still a major problem in the United States and has yet to be faced with a formidable solution.

Human trafficking is a poison polluting the waters of todays society. Still, we can prevent human trafficking.

As a community, Lake Havasu City can become aware.

Our citizens can look out for one another.

Warning signs for human trafficking include, but are not limited to, common work and living conditions, poor mental health or abnormal behavior, poor physical health, and lack of control.

More often than not, a victim of trafficking is not free to leave or come to their home as he or she pleases, is unpaid or paid very little, works strange or unusual hours, must comply with strange restrictions at work, has a pimp or manager, was recruited to work through false covenants, or lives or works under high security.

More red flags would be displayed in someone who is fearful, anxious, submissive or tense, displays unusual behavior after bringing up law enforcement, avoids contact with the eyes, lacks simple medical services, appears malnourished, has few personal possessions, is not in control of his or her own finances or official documents such as their ID or passport, or is not allowed to speak for themselves.

While these warning signs can indicate a victim of human trafficking, it is best to not jump to conclusions without being absolutely sure.

Human trafficking is a problem. However, trafficking can become a thing of the past with the help and support of a community.

If youd like to learn more about human trafficking visit or call 1-888-373-7888 for more information. All of the statistics and information regarding human trafficking were derived from the National Human Trafficking Resource Center.

No media access to images of semi-clad Bieber

MIAMI A Miami judge on Thursday temporarily blocked media access to any more video images of a semi-clad Justin Bieber filmed while the teenage pop singer was in police custody last month after his arrest for driving under the influence.

The police station footage included clips of Bieber giving a urine sample behind a low wall.

Miami-Dade County Judge William Altfield ordered that about 10 hours of police surveillance video not be released until he has been able to review them in his chambers.

"Do you believe that the public has the right to ... see Justin Bieber urinating?" the judge asked attorneys representing several large media companies seeking access to the video under Florida's broad public records law.

"I don't think the public has a right to see his penis," replied Scott Ponce, an attorney for the Miami Herald and CBS.

"I believe the public has a right to see him standing behind a wall doing what we know is urinating," he added, noting that Bieber's urine test was part of the evidence in the DUI case.

At issue are four short clips of Bieber urinating at the police station.

If Bieber's genitalia are visible in the videos, authorities should release the clips after blacking out his private parts, he argued.

Attorneys representing Bieber disagreed.

"I find the argument to be insulting and demeaning of the court ... to just fuzz out the private parts," replied Howard Srebnick, one of Bieber's attorneys.

Judge Altfield said he would review the video and announce his decision at a March 4 hearing. He also postponed Bieber's March 3 DUI trial until March 17.

Bieber, 19, was charged with driving under the influence, resisting arrest and using an expired license after Miami Beach police say they caught him drag racing on January 23. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges and did not attend the hearing on Thursday.

Besides a small amount of alcohol, he had marijuana and prescription medication for anxiety in his system at the time of his arrest, according to the state attorney's office.

One video showing Bieber being patted down by a Miami Beach police officer was released to the media in early February, prompting his attorneys to file a motion to prevent any more such images from being released.

"While in custody at the Miami Beach police station, the defendant was captured on videotape in various states of undress which show intimate personal parts of the defendant's body," according to the motion filed earlier this month in Miami-Dade County Court.

The motion said the Florida constitution and state law protected such images from being publicly disclosed.

Releasing video from Bieber's brief time in custody would cause "irreparable harm," the teen's lawyers say.

Attorneys for several major media companies, including CNN, the Orlando Sentinel and the Associated Press, deny Bieber has the right to privacy under Florida's Public Records Act, according to court documents.

Reuters is not a party to the case.

Under Florida law, all evidence including photos and videos became public record once they are handed to the defense.

"Florida courts have long recognized that defense attorney government records are presumptively open, and that the Public Records Act is to be construed liberally in favor of access," Deanna Shullman, an attorney representing the media, said in court documents.

Florida courts "reject the notion that simply alleging embarrassment alone is sufficient grounds to trump Public Records Act disclosure mandates," Shullman wrote.

Herald and CBS attorney Ponce pointed to Bieber's own website, which he said included a photo of Bieber urinating criminal defense lawyer information and exposing his bare behind, as well as another image of the performer urinating in a mop bucket at a New York restaurant.

Bieber, whose private life has taken a seemingly tumultuous turn in the past year, was also charged last week with assaulting a limousine driver in Toronto in December.

The Miami case is State of Florida v Justin Drew Bieber,
