A former Major League Baseball executive is going to bat for children who have been trapped by what he calls pure evil.
For the last five years, former Los Angeles Dodgers general manager Kevin Malone has been working fulltime to rescue children from the sex trafficking industry. He has been sounding the alarm that this horrific practice is operating right here at home, with American children being harmed by American adults.
"We believe, based on research and numbers, that there's over 100,000 American children being trafficked every day for sex," he tells OneNewsNow.
Malone is the co-founder of the U.S. Institution Against Human Trafficking.
A year ago, he moved to Las Vegas to specifically fight this problem in "Sin City."
"I personally can't think of anything more of the devil, of the enemy, than child-sex slavery," he warns. "It's dark. It's ugly. And I believe these are the modern-day orphans in America."
In addition to providing safety for children, Malone is committed to helping rescue men from the addiction of pornography, which he says helps to fuel the child-sex industry.
