Detective good to see you both bill let me come to you first.
This is there.
The way as a -- enforcement officer is there any almost Willis crime in the way these people take advantage to kids and force them into the civilized and it's.
It's really -- we think as being you any civilized person you know with your parent -- have to be.
Have any type of connection with with family of friends you don't want to see anyone ever fall into this type of situation it is so heart wrenching is that these children who have preyed on.
By the Israeli monsters who have preyed on by these people who take advantage of their innocence take advantage of their own ability and then blew them into this this -- world.
We're -- it it it really.
Really destroys their lives and but you know -- I think the best thing the good news here is the fact that they've watched his campaign this was not just the FBI was local.
Law enforcement agencies while working on this massive campaign to kind of hopefully.
-- the streets I'm sure discretion to surface in many cases of what's really going on but sending a message that this is a serious crime that this is not something has taken lightly.
The only thing we hoped for Jonathan is that as these children are then sent back into some type of care system is that the system can.
Either get them back into where they have their mind -- properly and they can get back into being productive citizens.
And not have them fall victim back again in this lifestyle which maybe some of Africa content to.
And -- that this operation is as bill says -- is a great one that happened.
On the way but -- Steve Centanni also said in his report.
You know officials acknowledge the problem is getting worse and and as bill said you know what scratching the surface can you ever get far enough ahead.
This kind of evil crime to make a real difference.
Well I think there's every program that comes out that those what -- you'll -- -- -- -- local law enforcement has done the last couple days or weeks.
Is beyond scratching the surface it has taken him into custody it is trying to get some treatment the probable that exist and this is over the last three decades.

And guidance and I need to lay does not have them all back in school because my experience -- show me what days would be it would be sitting.
We did -- SB bus terminal and 42 street.
They haven't been physical back with that they don't have the support system after they are brought into custody after the since -- So it's a lot more home than simply arresting those payments rounding up the case this is that -- -- hole.
A hold sort of -- Koptev agencies' needs to be involved.
In fixing this problem I'm going forward now you can't just say do we save these kids by getting him out of here they need a law won't work.
They knew a lot more work a lot of his -- but he had a four security system and indeed -- the -- of the -- set up what sixty.
Think you have to have a support system for them -- financial system.
To put -- you also -- -- track.
For quite -- learning programs some kind of educational programs and some kind of jobs program.
To see them walk the streets because otherwise they have a tendency to pull back even if it's not the same -- They'll Floyd but would know what the world will -- -- that.
And yes I -- C writes in saying we just dies you were mentioning that with a false accounts so many people on helping kids -- herding them.
-- -- write sins says to all the odd looking special agents in the F -- FBI and all other federal law enforcement agencies thank you.

Bill way you wanna say thank you to the guys who -- that that's this isn't something either way they.
Yet -- walking into away a house on the street and find these people is a lot of work goes into this kind of off.
Right there's a lot of hard work investigation goes behind his -- emotional workable go into it because it said you know people.
You know who -- -- -- you know kind of sympathize with these these children who take advantage of -- -- one good thing Jonathan it is that.
But -- coming down and cracking down on these people some of them could face federal charges especially talk about.
Interstate transportation -- -- things -- the white -- -- you know human trafficking said some of these people who are participating in this.
You know as leave the you know as people -- it you know.
Creating a situation we faced severe federal charges which is great because the message need to be sent.
That this these crimes that didn't taken lightly and he's -- serious crimes and people take.
