The United States’ Federal Bureau of Investigation says despite their best efforts, huge numbers of children across the US are being sexually exploited. The rate of abuse is reaching “epidemic” proportions.
Tens of thousands of kids across the United States are being sexually exploited every year, and “the level of pedophilia is unprecedented right now,” Joseph Campbell of the FBI’s Criminal Investigation Division revealed to BBC News.
Only six hundred abused children were rescued by the Bureau last year.
Most of children cited in these numbers are American citizens, but there is also a large number of minors illegally transported to the territory of the US from Latin- and Central America, the BBC investigation revealed.’
