i'm bernie sanders, and i approve this message. last night you saw our fox5 special report on sex trafficking. tonight we take a deeper look at a disturbing trend that's becoming more prevalent in las vegas. it's called trick rolling. metro police describe what that is, and tell me the majority of children drawn into sex trafficking here in the valley are from right here in las vegas. 80% of our juveniles from the street are from las vegas metro police lieutenant patricia spencer's vice and sex trafficking team picked up 18 underage girls in january alone. the youngest? eleven years old. the average age of a

prostitution? 13. how does that happen? sigh, it's a question i ask myself why people want to want to buy children to have sex with? just the sound of those words together, it sounds so sick and disgusting, but it happens. people are exploiting that. people are exploiting the kids of our community, the adults, the money that moves through our city, people are using that to the sex traffickers benefit. with increased tourism comes increased crime, right? absolutely. our trick rolls doubled last year trick rolls: the idea is to not sell sex for money, but to use the offer of sex to take money from the trick or john. two main category- money is taken without force, getting the guy drunk, stealing an expensive watch, chips, the other is more violent, the pimp who jumps out behind a corner, and forceful asks the guy for money lieutenant spencer

more demand for sex means more pimps and more girls in vegas. it would make our pimps happy. if i was to come back with $1000, plus a watch or whatever "mary" was a sex trafficking victim for years before she escaped. she tells me her pimps would pressure her to trick roll. he would tell me when i was in the room with the date, try to steal something valuable in 2014, about 250 trick rolling cases were reported, with an estimated loss of 1.7 million dollars in things like stolen cash, chips, jewelry. last year, 450 reports, an estimated loss of more than 4 million dollars. only about one in ten actually report the trick roll, so the real number is astronomical. guilt, they may have a family back home that they don't want to know what happened to them, maybe they're ashamed we're seeing that desperation bc they have that obligation to provide for their pimp. if they don't they will suffer severe consequences, severe. beatings, sexual assaults, not something every so often, it happens all the time here all the time here lieutenant spencer warns tourists and locals alike... if you're lured by an offer that seems too good to be true, it probably is. if you or someone you know needs
