What do you think about prostitutes?
Most people look down on prostitution. It's a disgrace. Disgusting. And the girls are the ones who are seen as the bad guys.
After years of doing sexual favors to strangers for her pimp, what if the girl wanted out? The pimps find ways of controlling them. The girls often have no where to go, they are literally abused-- beaten into believing they can't leave. Often times their families, if they have them, are threatened.
So what if one of these girls kills him. Kills her pimp. And what if she's 16, now able to be charged as an adult. Does she deserve life in prison without parole?
Meet Sarah. This is her story.
A 33 year old man, know as GG, had sex with her when she was 13, then made her become a prostitute. He got all the money. When she was 16 she killed him. Now she will spend the rest of her life in prison. She will never get out. Ever. See her story here, and sign the petition to get her sentence lightened.
P.s. I am no expert on all of this. But I have been doing research on this subject because I plan on writing a novel about a girl like this. I've been reading a book called "Somebodies daughter", find it here -- http://www.amazon.com/Somebodys-Daughter-Americas-Prostituted-Children/dp/1569765650/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348193486&sr=8-1&keywords=somebodies+daughter
Also I don't know a ton of specifics about this girl in particular, I don't know if her pimp hit her, or forced her to do anything, but it was abuse with or with out bruises. And I strongly believe that if you are 13 when the abuse starts, at 16 you can't be considered an adult. There is physcological/emotional abuse here just as much as physical.
