    Well if the attorney generals want to stop all of this they need to look into and act on a copy cat website called backpage.com. this site is even worse than craigslist and openly has the same sections as craigslist under each city is the erotic section full of ads being posted. I dont understand how the attorney general's can not force these guys to remove ads that clearly and boldly are for prostitution. Craigslist has opened the door to let all others do what they want while lining their pockets with no regard to anyones safety.

    Anderson, I'm surprised regarding your the article on the use of Craigslist by the sex trade. It is clearly inconclusive. You did not show a definitive example of illegal activity. People posting on Craigslist are innocent until proven guilty. The Police Deptartments have every opportunity to monitor Craigslist to see if there is illegal activity. Are the Police being proactive? Why should they have to wait for CL to advise them. Should CL report every ad that specifies a young innocent woman? (Could be a 24 year old). A picture can be legal and yet very provacative. Check out your local news stand.
    I would like to see an article on why the Police department is not doing anything about Adult ads on all typs of media rather than one form of media with an ambiguous ad. Dave P

    AC, your report on craigslist was a new low for you and cnn, you are srtating to sound like the fox network. I guess you guys can't do any real investigative reporting.

    Monitoring ads submitted to Craig's List for under-age girls caught up in sex trafficking would be a full time no-skill job that evidentially Mr. Craig does not want to pay for. If they aren't going to patrol it then they ought to take the whole category down so there is no place on their list to post the ads. Mr. Craig must be making a pretty penny from those ads and those ads may be one of the bigger drivers of surfers to his website – both good reasons to them to not remove them. Unless legal means are brought to bear I doubt Mr. Craig will be pro-active in screening those ads and turning them away;
