Backpage prostitution bust in Springfield, MO

Several Arrests in Downtown Springfield Prostitution Ring:

Police in Springfield, Missouri busted an elaborate prostitution ring recently and I wanted to point out this quote from the article…

An undercover officer confronted and interviewed one of the women involved. She told police a man and woman who rent the rooms would arrange the meetings with men through a website called backpage.com.

What does that sound like to you? To me that sounds a whole hell of a lot like human trafficking.

Yet backpage says that they’re doing all they can to prevent trafficking on their sites. I guess by doing everything they can they mean raising the adult ad rates.

Thanks to Phyllis for the tip.

No trafficking ever on Geebo.com.

    I live close to Springfield. It’s not a huge town, but it has many less fortunate people living in the area of this crime. There are a few shelters near this building, and many people living on the street. This whole mess is just dispicable!
