(Newser) – A new report on British sex slavery slams officials for their "shocking" inability to curb the rise of modern slavery and human trafficking, the Guardian reports. Authors of the massive Centre for Social Justice report, due out tomorrow, offer more than 80 recommendations and criticize the "unacceptable levels of ignorance and misidentification" among border agents, police, and social workers. Worse, victims who reach the police are often charged for being an illegal immigrant.

The authors identify more than 1,000 cases, including British girls trafficked for sex exploitation and one girl who said she had been raped 90 times over a weekend, the Daily Mail reports. Other victims are forced to commit crimes including drug cultivation, pickpocketing, and fraud. "Our research has uncovered a shocking underworld in which children and adults, many of them UK citizens, have been forced into lives of utter degradation," reads the report. Among its recommendations: Create an anti-slavery commissioner and force big companies to disclose their anti-slavery practices. (Sex slavery happens in America, too: Read about about one in midtown Manhattan and the shocking child-sex trade in Ohio.)

99 % bullshit - America today ,engaged in the war against sexuality of human beings imprisons mature women for loving juicy eager young men and punishes males for normal answering their inner duty call in propagation of species . The age of consent - 18 - is one of the main weapons of the war fought by ourselves against ourselves against ourselves on behave of sexless creatures of elsewhere. We wage this war against the imaginery enemy typically ,out of envy,and deeper personal unsatisfaction attack those who still live and love resembeling the model the Nature granted to us thankfully!!! Any moral ,political ,egotistical intervention into somebody elses hetero sexuality is a desperate, ,envious and mechanical reaction to the shortcomings that are ceaslessly rumbling within the attacker herself/himself . Homosex - until we can observe it in the open within its limitations we can not form a realistic opinions .Just keep it away from political actions and our children's sexuality and parenthood.

Any case of rape or slavery is unacceptable and this is a massive international problem. If only a fraction of the money or effort put into catching copyright violators was put into catching people violators then maybe this problem wouldn't have got out of hand.
