The case of Cyntoia Brown

Brown is serving a life sentence for the murder of a Nashville man in 2004. According to Brown, after a childhood marked by abuse and drugs, she was raped and forced into prostitution by a pimp, and ended up killing one of her clients out of self defense when she was just 16 years old. Despite her youth, she was tried as an adult and given a life sentence. 

In 2004, Brown killed Nashville realtor Johnny Allen, one of the many men who paid to have sex with the then 16-year-old. As a child sex slave, she’d been repeatedly raped, abused and held at gunpoint prior to being exploited by Allen.

Slavery in Libya

Modern day slavery showing African migrants and refugees being sold off at an auction in Libya has sparked global outrage.

Video footage released by Cable News Network (CNN) about two weeks ago appeared to show youths from Nigeria, Mali and other sub-Saharan countries being sold to buyers for about $400 at undisclosed locations in Libya.

Each year for the past three years, more than 150,000 migrants and refugees have crossed into Europe from Libya in hopes of making their way to a new life, only to end up being held ransom or forced into prostitution and sexual exploitation to pay their captors and smugglers.
