Toledo, for its delivery of teen and child prostitutes to the rest of North America and Asia, was found to be the No. 1 Gateway City for Teen Prostitution. It has supplied points in Canada and Las Vegas with teens and even infants. Aside from the global delivery of these children, Toledo has been Number 3 by itself in child sex trafficking.
Toledo is the third largest gateway city for child sex tourism and child sex trafficking in America, but supplies all the rest. The City of Toledo has run aground of some hard economic times in recent years and the Underground Economy has grown a bit larger in response — This includes anything from hair braiding without a cosmetology license to neighborhood auto mechanics working on a cash-only basis, to selling children as young as 6 months old into sex slavery.
Professor Celia Williamson of the University of Toledo chaired a task force for research into Ohio’s contribution to the child sex trafficking industry. Initial results estimated Toledo in 4th place in this trafficking in America, that this result was conservative, that it may be actually worse. At least 1,800 people at any point in time in Ohio are held in trafficking bondage. Miami Fl, Portland OR, Las Vegas NV, and Toledo OH are the top 4 US gateway cities, but the Las Vegas child sex victims come mostly from Toledo, pushing it up to third place overall. It is incredible. Also incredible is that 6-month-old infants are used sexually and that men pay $1,000 for 20 minutes to use girls ages 6 months to 12 years in sex tourism.
One of the reasons that child abuse is not reported and the tormented children are not always recused is the unwillingness of the public to see women in as harsh a role as ABUSER. Actually, girls and women have been able to participate in violence for many generations. Even serial killing has been proved among certain women perpetrators. since at least 1826 in America.
Author and historian Caleb Carr explains the role of some women in the world of violence and serial killing in American History through his novel Angel of Darkness. It is as good as his The Alienist series. All are based in American History.
