Local Gangs Turn to Prostitution

I read an article in the Sunday Eagle that dealt with the topic of young runaway girls being taken advantage of by local gangs. The runaways are being raped by men and driven to cities to be part of prostitution rings. If you think about it these young girls have no one to turn to on the streets and if they get caught up with the wrong people then the worse can happen. The girls are forced into prostituion for money. Gangs are using this as income flow rather than deal with the violence of drug dealing. I heard about this topic a while ago when a younger member of my extended family ran away from home and was caught up in the prositution ring. She was taken as far away as California. This is a real situation that is happening more often than not.
