Police in Memphis, Tennessee recently pulled over 23-year-old Cartez Horne for not wearing his seatbelt. Not exactly newsworthy but it’s what police found in the car that is.
There was a 16-year-old girl riding in the car with Horne whom he allegedly admitted to having a ‘sexual relationship’ with. Age of consent in Tenn. is 18 with the provision that allows minors aged 13–17 to engage in sexual acts with partners less than 4 years older. Horne here does not meet that qualification so it’s a case of alleged rape. Statutory but still rape. The fun doesn’t end there though.
This scumbag was also allegedly prostituting her on backp….no wait, he was prostituting her on craigslist. You know, the classifieds site that supposedly got rid of all the sex trafficking on their site but didn’t.
So he’s a pimp and a rapist. Surprise people, most pimps usually are rapists. It’s one of the weapons in their arsenal they use to keep their women, or in this case girls, to keep working for them.
Still no outrage from most of the public, politicians or media though. I guess they think that a girl who legally can not consent to sex is old enough to make the decision on her own to sell herself as a sexual slave.
The more we stay quiet the more the problem will continue to grow.
