WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than 300 people have been arrested for involvement in child prostitution rings and 21 children rescued in a nationwide sweep, the FBI said on Wednesday.
"Operation Cross Country," a five-day sting that ended on Sunday, spanned 16 cities in 10 states and the District of Columbia and caught 389 people who exploited children through prostitution, the agency said.
Investigations uncovered schemes ranging from prostituting children at truck stops to promoting their services on the Internet, the FBI said.
I rarely wish the Feds well on anything, but in this case here's to their successful casebuilding against over 300 rotten spots in the civic body. Go get'em guys.
