Child prostitution rings are advertising on Facebook? Does Zuckerberg consider this to be freedom of speech?

Only 3 years in prison for raping a 12-year-old?

Our "justice" system is deranged. Short sentences for rape are a reflection of our male-supremacist culture, created and maintained by mostly men, that systematically undervalues the safety of women and girls.

Meanwhile, people get sent away for much lengthy sentences for consensual crimes like adult to adult drug sales. SMDH

The article did not mention a child prostitution ring on Facebook, rather an adult dating website. This child has been victimized and broken by adults who should have been looking out for her. She somehow has gravitated towards this type of ‘adult content’ for validation. Once again, she has been victimized.

3 years? Not really is a registered user.

3 years in prison would be less with good behavior. Since there are no 12-year-old girls in prison, figure he would behave until released. Then again, maybe the man will get probation with a short stint in county jail. Follow the sentencing.
