The Los Angeles police department just completed a major operation that resulted in the arrest of 238 pedophiles. Dubbed Operation Broken Heart III, investigators spent months tracking down some of the foulest people in L.A.
“The incidence of child sexual exploitation has reached staggering proportions,” John Reynolds, acting special agent in charge for Homeland Security Investigations, said during a press conference.
Vile, disgusting sexual predators are using social media to prey on children. Many of the men nabbed by the LAPD are outwardly successful, having found careers in business, politics, and the church. Prosecutors claim that one man was so eager to get his hands on a child that he flew all the way from Australia. Undercover agents say that Michael Quinn, 33, made the journey because he was hoping to purchase a 6-year-old American boy for sex.
