Not up for driving out to Mansfield (Hi, Mom and Dad!) tonight in Friday-evening traffic to talk about children who are bought and sold into sexual slavery and will probably live an average of seven years before dying as a result of the danger and trauma of the industry? No? Not your fun idea of a weekend kick-off? Well, be mollified: You can watch tonight's Traffick911 Shared Hope Town Hall Meeting online from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Online viewers can also submit questions for the event Q&A moderated by the Rebecca Project. On hand will be: Fort Worth Police Chief Jeffrey Halstead, Sgt. Byron Fassett of Dallas PD's Crimes Against Children unit and former U.S. Congresswoman Linda Smith.

Traffick911, a faith-based organization from Fort Worth, is on high alert in advance of the Super Bowl, which is expected to increase Texas's already high population of human trafficking victims. Their "I'm Not Buying It" campaign has been launched in advance of the big game in hopes of discouraging those who would buy child prostitutes, wittingly or otherwise

If you're interested in attending the town hall in person, the event's at the Aristede Event and Conference Center.

Human trafficking is one of the most serious social issues that we have. It is great that there are efforts being done in order to address this very pressing matter. Hopefully, these efforts can provide results to put an end to this very unlawful act.

According to the media hype There was supposed to be hundreds of thousands of under age child sex slaves kidnapped and forced to have sex with super bowl fans. At the Dallas Super Bowl 2011.

WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THEM?????

WHERE ARE THE THOUSANDS OF SUPER BOWL KIDNAPPED FORCED CHILD SEX SLAVES???????

Politicians, women's groups, police and child advocates were predicting that up to 100,000 hookers would be shipped into Dallas for the Super Bowl.

It was all a big lie told by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, government officials, and various anti-prostitution groups: Traffick911, Not for Sale, Change-org, Polaris Project, and the Dallas Women’s Foundation, which are anti-prostitution groups that tell lies in order to get grant money from the government and charities to pay their high salaries, and get huge amounts of money into their organizations. As proved in the links below:

Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:

“Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl. But Robert Casey Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did.“In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”

This myth of thousands or millions of underage sex slaves tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in.

Brian McCarthy isn't happy. He's a spokesman for the NFL. Every year he's forced to hear why his customers are adulterers and child molesters. Brian McCarthy says the sport/super bowl sex slave story is a urban legend, with no truth at all.

These anti-prostitution groups lobby the government in a big way, getting Politicians to truly believe their lies.

== World Cup 2006 ==Politicians, religious and aid groups, still repeat the media story that 40,000 prostitutes were trafficked into Germany for the 2006 world cup – long after leaked police documents revealed there was no truth at all in the tale. A baseless claim of 25,000 trafficking victims is still being quoted, recently, for example, by the Salvation Army in written evidence to the home affairs select committee, in which they added: "Other studies done by media have suggested much higher numbers.” Which has been proven by the German police to be completely false. Yet people still talk about these false numbers as if it were fact. ==World Cup 2010 ==Again using the made up number of 40,000 prostitutes trafficked:The behavior of fans in South Africa has run contrary to what was predicted prior to the start of the tournament after David Bayever told World Cup organizers in March it was feared that up to 40,000 extra prostitutes could converge in the host nation to meet the expected demand. Bayever, deputy chairperson of South Africa's Central Drug Authority (CDA) that advises on drug abuse but also works with prostitutes, warned: "Forty-thousand new prostitutes. As if we do not have enough people of our own, we have to import them to ensure our visitors are entertained."

But the tournament in 2010, if anything, has seen the modern-day soccer fan attracted to art galleries and museums over brothels. A trend that has seen a drop in revenue across the board for the prostitution industry, which is illegal in South Africa. "Zobwa," the chairperson of Sisonke -- an action group representing around 70 street prostitutes in Johannesburg -- said business had been down over the last month. "The World Cup has been devastating. We thought it was going to be a cash cow but it's chased a lot of the business away. It's been the worst month in my company's history," the owner and founder of one of Johannesburg's most exclusive escort companies told CNN.

===The Vancouver Olympics 2010=======Again anti-prostitution groups lied and used the same figure of 40,000 or more sex slaves for the Vancouver Olympics. Again they were proved wrong. There were no sex slaves at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics.

In recent years, every time there has been a major international sporting event, a group of government officials, campaigning feminists, pliant journalists and NGOs have claimed that the movement of thousands of men to strange foreign countries where there will be lots of alcohol and horniness will result in the enslavement of women for the purposes of sexual pleasure. Obviously. And every time they have simply doubled the made-up scare figures from the last international sporting event, to make it look like this problem of sport/sex/slavery gets worse year on year. Yet each year it is proved false.

This myth tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in. These anti-prostitution groups need to in invent a victim that does not exist in order to get press attention.

I do not like the idea of people getting the wrong information and believing lies, no matter what the topic is. The Sex trafficking, slavery issue is one of the biggest lies being told today. It is amazing to me how people will believe such lies so easily. The media is to blame for this. I wonder why they feel such a need to report wrong stats, numbers and information about this topic without doing proper research.

While this may happen in very rare limited situations, the media will say that millions of people are sex slaves without doing any real research on the topic. Only taking the word of special interest anti-prostitution groups which need to generate money in the form of huge government grants from taxpayers, and charities. These "non profit" group's employees make huge salaries, therefore they need to lobby the government, and inflate and invent victims in order to get more money into their organizations. If you look into how many real kidnapped forced against their will sex slaves there are, and not just take the anti-prostitution groups word for it. You will be very surprised. Where are all the forced sex slaves? I would like to meet the millions of sex slaves and see for myself if they were in fact kidnapped, and forced against their will.

These anti-prostitution groups lobby the government in a big way, getting Politicians to truly believe their lies.

This is an attempt to over inflate an issue in order to get more government money to these organizations. As a tax payer, voter, and resident I don’t want the government to mislead me.

I would like to see a news organization do a full report on the lies, myths and exaggerated numbers being told about sex trafficking slaves. But they won't do it because they are all sacred of the anti-prostitution groups, so the media continues to tell lies and only report what the anti-prostitution groups and politicians tell them to. The articles about the super bowl and sport sex slaves, has been proved wrong many times, but news organizations still report about it, as if it were fact.

Below are the few brave souls that told the truth in the media:Sex Trafficking in Sports Events links:

According to a 2007 Washington Post expose entitled "Human Trafficking Evokes Outrage, Little Evidence", human trafficking into the United States is essentially nonexistent.

actually Bronxjack..it is existent..more than 100,000 women and children are trafficked into or out of the United States each year. I'm sorry but that seems too many to be nonexistent..it's just people want to believe it's not there, but it happens all the time and most people don't care or try not to notice.

Not a Prude or Naive But If this is what comes trailing along with the The Game, Maybe the big Game its not exactly the family friendly event it is cracked up to be.

If you look at the Beyond local understanding ( at least for me ) prices of the Events being staged for the folks who are going to the game It is easy to see how they quite able to can buy what ever companionship they chose .

This is same group Creepy group of folks that assemble every year for one heck of a hedonistic week end.

I applaud the idea, but I'm not 100% sure that someone who is willing to pay for a child prostitute can be dissuaded from doing so. At that point, I'm reasonably sure one has pretty thoroughly abandoned the idea of having a moral compass. Best of luck to them though.

As a priest once told me: "Gentlemen, promise me one thing: never have to pay for sex. It is sad."

I agree, Matt, that if someone knows they're getting a child prostitute and they're buying anyway, they probably are beyond help. I think this campaign probably aims at the kinds of people who don't know (or want to know) that the prostitutes they're paying for are trafficked. I'd imagine many choose to believe that they're getting a working woman who loves her job, not a teenager who's been emotionally and physically beaten into submission by a pimp.
