While Super Bowl XLVIII may have been a huge success for the NFL it was a nightmare for NYC and New Jersey residents who hosted the affair. The biggest surprise has to be that while the big game was taking place, a disgusting prostitution ring was in operation. Federal Agents busted a huge child prostitution ring saving 16 kids who were being pimped out during the game.
From The Grio:
Some of the victims were from other countries, authorities said. One of the minors, a 17-year-old girl, had spent the past two years with her pimp, said Michael Osborn, chief of the Violent Crimes Against Children unit at the FBI. Osborn said pimps forced their victims to come to the New York City area from 13 states ahead of the game held Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The rescues and arrests all took place during the two weeks leading up to the game. Authorities said the Super Bowl and other big sporting events provide potentially lucrative opportunities for sex traffickers. There are scant statistics and significant debate over how much trafficking actually increases during such events, but New Jersey, like previous hosts for the game, paid particularly close attention to it.
