  • Values and Ethics from the victims perspective: <br /> Values <br /> -Someone that has been trafficked coming out of their situation may value the freedom to make their own choices and decisions, independence from being bound and held down, and the support and true love from a family. <br /> - Some people might value trust and the dignity and worth of each individual. <br /> Ethics <br /> - some of the ethics one might have for their reasons in speaking up  is that they want society to know that Human trafficking exists and that it needs to stop. - They believe that we all need to do what is right and not compromise the value and worth of a person. <br />
  • For a long time, society has put a stereotype on adolescents who prostitute as worthless, throwaways, and runaways. There is no empathy for adolescents who live lives as human trafficking victims. Whether the child is 11 or 17, society believes they had a choice to live the lifestyle they do. Morally it is considered wrong, and adolescents in the profession have no values. <br /> From a law enforcement perspective, the Police Chief of Atlanta wants to ban prostitutes by passing a banishment law which means any person, regardless of age, even adolescents, who are caught prostituting, or trafficking will be banned from the city always. Victims are not victims if they have to be “coerced” into testifying and asked if help is needed. Those so-called victims of human trafficking are not worthy enough for help as they do not have the same problems as real victims like those who are raped, victims of domestic violence, domestic assault, and molestation from family members and friends. There is no option for rehabilitation and no value for the victims life. <br /> Victims are not victims if they have to be “coerced” into testifying and asked if help is needed. Those so-called victims of human trafficking are not worthy enough for help as they do not have the same problems as real victims like those who are raped, victims of domestic violence, domestic assault, and molestation from family members and friends. <br /> Proposition 35 was passed to increase the prison terms for human traffickers and to hold criminals responsible for their actions. Those convicted of human trafficking would have to register as sex offenders, and the funding would go to victims services. The proposition has had lots of people question he morals and values of society, and that it would ruin the lives of many people. A woman who states she provides erotic services to people says that the proposition could ruin hers and her military sons life because if she is arrested for her profession, her and her son would have to register as a sex offender and be prosecuted as a human trafficker because financially she helps him out. Those who opposed the law also believe that there is no way to pinpoint victims. Most also believe that victims stay with their pimp because life is better as a human trafficker than it was before……or is it?? <br />
  • When she was only 11 years old, Sara Kruzan met a man named GG. GG promised her everything in the world and taught Sara that she should never given sex to anyone for free. By age 13, Sara was ready to be put out on the streets. She became a full time sex trafficking victim. After 3 years of working as a victim, Sara snapped and planned an attack on her Pimp. She set up a meeting with GG and killed him. Sara was still a juvenile and got life in prison without parole. The justice system failed to protect her and at the time did not believe that Sara deserved treatment and had questioned her moral scruples. Sara did understand what moral scruples were at the time and as she has spend time in prison, has educated herself in the meaning of honesty and integrity. Sara has made a promise to herself that at her parole hearing, she will let them know that she has learned what morals and values are. <br /> Around October of this year, at age 35 and after serving almost 20 years behind bars for committing what some call a heinous unjustified crime, Sara has finally been set free. <br /> Some people in the justice system still believe that what Sara did was wrong and that there should be no mercy for her. Was what Sara did morally wrong? Maybe. Should she have gotten the punishment she did? Maybe not. This case proves there are those who believe that victims of human trafficking are not in fact victims. <br />
