Human Trafficking in Fraimgham?

Adrian Walker from the Globe wrote a piece the other day, "Temptation's rough path" sept 25th. Evidently a city councilor sitting at the Back Bay MBTA was approached by a pimp, looking to recruit her. The pimp, named Coffee, promised not to beat her and she could make 5k a week. Shocking as that was to read, the city councilor asked a bunch of questions to this well dressed pimp. The most shocking statement he made to her was that he trolled Framingham, among other cities, for his workers. While this may not shock some in Town, it certainly gets my attention and while a bill to ban human trafficking has been stalled on Beacon Hill, dozens, maybe hundreds of young people are being asked to become slaves to a pimp.

Now that Craigs List has been shut down for prostitution, perhaps the Framingham Police department will set up real stings to catch real criminals dealing in human trafficking.They shouldn't need a ban to stop this kind of crime in Framingham.

Shame on those who have stood in the way of protecting our residents from predators.

This begs the question, for what good reason has a bill to ban human trafficing been stalled at the state house?

I read that article, and Framingham happened to be at the top of that pimps list of town’s that he recruits his girls from. If that does not open your eyes about the need for change in this community, nothing will.

Are you serious about this? They stalled a human trafficking law at the state house?

Framingham is top of the list because there are so many illegals here who will work doing anything as long as they get paid. Better they do those jobs than take away decent jobs from all of us born and raised here.

I can see why you didn’t put your name on that post you idiot. As much as I would like to point out to you how stupid you sound, I won’t waste my time because you are probably too stupid to understand what I would say anyway.

what did I miss Friend?

the bill is 33 pages long. In it, they talk about civil forfeiture and all the regulations involved.Fines, prison time and of coarse, what and who gets the money from selling forfeited assets, just like the war on drugs.

It's typical Mass politics where bills are long and not easily understood, while benefiting law enforcement first.

So I'm not sure who or why it has been held up, but it is something that I would vote for intermediately.
