Whoops, just as the Mayor of Nashville was getting ready to crow about being the tenth sexiest city, a bunch of thugs connected to Somalis gangs were arrested for sex trafficking in his city.
Twenty-nine people were indicted for sex trafficking that crosses three states and is supposedly run by a Minneapolis gang of Somalis.
The Somali Outlaws, Somali Mafia and the Lady Outlaws are charged with transport of underage Somali and African American girls from Minneapolis to Nashville from 2000 to 2010 for sex acts in exchange for money or other items.
Some of the child prostitutes were as young as 14. The sex ring was operating in Minneapolis, Nashville, and Columbus, Ohio.
The indictment outlined several instances of prostitution. In one case in 2005, a girl under age 14 was transported from Minneapolis to Columbus and Nashville for sex. In other cases, the girls were forced to engage in sex acts in hotel rooms, men’s bathrooms and other locations.
U.S. Attorney Jerry Martin said:
Trafficking children for sex is intolerable and the Department of Justice will aggressively enforce trafficking and other laws to eliminate these types of deplorable acts.
All of a sudden, Nashville being known as the tenth sexiest city has lost a lot of its luster.
