doublesecretprobation: human trafficking happens EVERYWHERE, not just in places with legalized prostitution.
Andromeda: Oooooh boy.American living in Amsterdam here (for 1.5 years now) and let me tell you, the city does not resemble what the article paints it like at all. Only time I ever see prostitutes is if a friend is visiting and just HAS to see the Red Light District/ a Fark party. Nor have I as a woman been accosted going home as the article says, or anything like that.I further find it telling that this article doesn't say how much more prevalent human trafficking is in the Netherlands than in other countries. I would be curious to hear if it's much higher as of the last 10 years or so.
Arkanaut: Also, I thought the armpit of Europe is still Albania.

scottydoesntknow: I'm pretty sure they (hipsters) think that because that's how Holland wants to be viewed by tourists. When foreigners think of New York, they think of Times Square, all the museums/plays, the Statue of Liberty; not the thousands of homeless, millions of rats, murders, traffic jams, etc. that are there every day.
Karac: gilgigamesh: The thing of it is, Vegas was able to legalize the sex trade without all these problems. As far as I know.Prostitition is not legal in Las Vegas. Nevada laws on the matter differ from county to county; the ones which contain Vegas, Reno, and the majority of the population in the state do not allow it.If fly to Vegas for the weekend and want to find a legal whore, you're going to need to rent a car, get directions, and drive for at least a half hour. If you want to do the same in Amsterdam, all you probably have to do is get on the subway.
Vodka Zombie: cman: Oh, the Netherlands, how I hate ye.Your language sounds like a girl speaking English with her mouth occupied by a certain male sexual organI lived in Eindhoven for three years. Wonderful place if you're not so petty or childish as to hate an entire nation for the language they speak.

Citrate1007: The Super Bowl is an event that creates the #1 highest concentration of illegal prostitution in the world. So ya, Fark the Dutch.....
gadian: I thought sex trafficking was forced prostitution.
MBooda: Let's not let this thread drift too far off course. Steady rudder, folks.

SpectroBoy: I have been to Amsterdam multiple times. I thought it was nice. The people were nice, the food was good, the city was friendly in general.
Bastard Toadflax: Looks like the Dutch have lost their rudder.
Karac: Interesting tidbit: several years ago, the Department of Defense added a regulation which outlawed members of the military hiring a hooker; even if doing so was legal under the local laws - even if that location was one of those brothel-friendly Nevada counties.The theory behind this was that the odds of the girl being a trafficed sex slave were so high that it could be presumed that no prostitute anywhere in the world was able to consent to sex and hiring her would be tantamount to rape.

InmanRoshi: <i>Underage runaways, Sex Trafficking, Forced prostitution </i>So basically like the Republican National Convention?

CheatCommando: Vodka Zombie: Wonderful place if you're not so petty or childish as to hate an entire nation for the language they speak.In other words, wonderful place unless you are a typical American.
theflatline: Citrate1007: The Super Bowl is an event that creates the #1 highest concentration of illegal prostitution in the world. So ya, Fark the Dutch.....Because you could put 2 hookers at the Superbowl and it would be the highest number of illegal whores in the world, because most countries have legal hookers.
Vodka Zombie: I think people are taking a lot of the really bad things about Copenhagen, Denmark, and trying to apply it to Amsterdam in an attempt to disparage an entire country.
grokca: Ah, Stratumseind, I lost a lot of braincells there.
JerseyTim: Looks like Bill O'Reilly was right.
