Playground by Spears, Libby

Story
The documentary Playground is about paedophilia and sexual exploitation of children in America. The filmmaker held interviews with pimps, victims and police officers and shows us how young children are pushed into prostitution.

Background
The U.S. Department of Justice claims that the commercial sexual exploitation of children is the worlds fastest growing form of organized crime. US citizens count for 25% of child sex tourists worldwide. And as much as 80% in Latin America. The number one destination for Americans seeking sex with a child is the USA. In the United States alone, child sex trafficking is a multi-million dollar industry with an estimated 300,000 children annually at risk. Wherever you can buy drugs in the USA, you can buy children, American children, for sex.
