Attorney General Richard Blumenthal today, ed by 17 other state attorneys general, is calling on craigslist to immediately remove the Adult Services portion of the site due to continued rampant prostitution advertisements and mounting public outrage. The multi-state letter, to craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster and founder Craig Newmark, contends that craigslist cannot -- or will not -- adequately screen theseso it should stop accepting them altogether and shut down the Adult Services section.
No amount of money can justify the scourge of illegal prostitution, and the suffering of women and children who will continue to be victimized, in the market and trafficking provided by craigslist. Even following its public pledge to attorneys general and the public that it would better police its own site, craigslist remains a hot spot for blatant prostitution .
The attorneys general said this position fails to acknowledge that craigslist is the only party positioned to stop these before they are published. While the perpetrators may eventually be apprehended and brought to justice, the victims -- assuming they survive -- will carry the scars for life, the attorneys general said.
