I heard the teaser on the air. I do think there is a huge problem with underage girls being lured into prostitution right now, particulalrly 16 and 17 year olds. Personally, I blame pop culture. These girls think the gangster life is glamorous or something. It seems like half the young urban males in town are working their game trying to build a stable. Why it's suddenly become cool to be a pimp or a ho, I have no idea, but there is no doubt in my mind that there is a subset of young people that truly believe it is.
My other comment is that I don't believe the 300,000number for a second.. There are 300 million people in the US, and 2 million in Portland. Do the math, and that translates to 2,000 undaerage prostitutes in Portland metro. The is no way that number is possible. Probably 20, Maybe 200, but no where near 2,000.
