Florida Attorney General's Office Testifies In Regard to the Beheading of a Mexican Girl for Refusing to be Raped by Sex Traffickers

Excerpt of a the testimony of Bill Stewart, Deputy Chief of Staff for Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum:

"…I think one of the most predominant ones,  or issue  of most important to the state of Florida is the issue of human trafficking.

Florida is the number one state in the nation for human trafficking.

And I will just leave you with a recent story that occurred in the panhandle [region of north Florida].

There were several girls that were trafficked into the panhandle from Mexico.  These girls were raped repeatedly over a week’s period of time, and one of them actually resisted while she was being raped.

So the smugglers grabbed all of these girls, chained them in chairs, and put them in a room.  They brought in the girl who refused to be raped, and they beheaded her, in front of all of the other girls that were in that room.  And they left them there, with her body, and those little girls, for several hours...

This is the reality, of dangerous criminal aliens, in our state, and what happens.  They do not care about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  What they care about is money, and people are merely an avenue to get them to their needs."
