Feel bad for the exploited minors.

This sexual abuse by anybody is terrible, It can be almost certain a good amount of sexual exploitation is done by Dominicans. However, those bad happenings are hidden behind a thin curtain of smoke that might get media attention. It is when a foreigner is caught with his pants down the media goes into overdrive to publish the all the nasty details. Why? Because, it inflames public sentiment to want more gossip, especially about foreigners, and is a catalyst to bring in advertising and periódico revenue.

Let’s hope there is justice for the minors.
