21-year-old Samuel Ferraro of Philadelphia has been arrested recently and accused of repeatedly raping a 17-year-old girl and turning her out on Backp…wait. Is that right? It seems that it is. Ferraro is accused of turning the girl out for prostitution on craigslist.
Ferraro allegedly took the girl to Minnesota where he forced her to be raped by other men while he collected the money. He’s also accused of repeatedly raping the girl and threatening her with violence if she didn’t work for her.
Investigators are concerned there may be more victims, and anyone with information on Ferraro should contact the District Attorney’s Office at 215-686-5874.
Ferraro is currently being held without bail.
But let’s back up for a second. Didn’t craigslist do away with the erotic/adult services section some time ago. Yet there’s still human trafficking occurring on their site. I’m shocked. And by shocked, I mean not shocked at all. All the more reason why craigslist needs to monitor and moderate their own site. The community policing did nothing to prevent the repeated rapes of this 17-year-old girl, yet the media is still giving craigslist a pass. I guess it only takes grand gestures to stop sex trafficking, or at least it seems that’s what the media thinks.
