- So it's late Friday night,

and we're somewhere up

on queen Anne right now.

We followed a guy

who we've been following

for an hour and a half

on the track.

He's just been

tracing the track,

looking for girls to pick up

to buy them for sex.

He's parked over here

on this block.

So we're gonna go

confront him right now.

And we're gonna tell him,

"hey, it's not right

what you're doing.

You can't do this here

in our city."

I'm not sure

how this is gonna go.

These guys usually

don't react very well

with this type of thing.

[car horn honks]

What are you doing?

- None of your fucking business.

- Oh, it's my business now.

You made a big mistake.

You made

a big mistake.

Let's get in the car.

- He can't get out.

[tires screech]


- Get this side.

- Hey! What do you think

you're doing, huh?

Get that.

Get their license plate.

Get their license plate.

He's up on the right.

He's up on the right.

- Is that him?

- Yep.

He saw us.

- Right there?

That's him?

- Hey, what the f*ck

is your problem, dude?

- Let me tell you my problem.

- What's your fucking problem?


[horn blares]

[indistinct arguing]

- So often

when I hear people say, glibly,

"prostitution is the oldest


Now, look,

agriculture, fishing,

hunting is the oldest


but prostitution is not

the oldest profession.

It is really the oldest

oppression of women

on the planet.

It has always been that way,

and it will always

be that way.

- Men are the issue

that has to be addressed.

It is the demand side

that is the issue.

- I don't... I don't want

to hurt people,

but there's a part of me

inside that does.

That's the horrible thing.

Like, it's somewhere inside

that just...

Just only wants

to feed itself.

- In this country,

we pride ourselves on the fact

that we're a free country.

And in fact, our constitution

was founded upon that principle.

And yet, the sad reality is,

the irony is that we have slaves

in the United States.

- It comes as a shock to a lot

of Americans

that in their own community,

in their own cities,

that young people as young

as 12, 13, 14 years old,

boys and girls, are being

forced to sell their bodies

for the profit

of someone else.

They're brought from cities

around the United States

and they're brought

from around the world

to satisfy the appetites

of individuals

who have no compassion

or concern for the future

and life of a young person.

- The most common area

of sex trafficking that we see

is prostitution-related


- Rape and prostitution

are flip sides of the same coin,

and that is the sexual

oppression of women.

- That's slavery.

You may not see the manacles,

you may not see that somehow

that they are being

locked and keyed away,

but they are being held

against their will, intimidated,

and also being used

in a such a way

that they have no freedom

to pursue their own destiny.

- Nobody really likes

to think

that there are children

being sold for sex.

It's a very hard issue

to talk about.

It's a very hard thing

to recognize

that it might be something

that's occurring

in one's own community.

- Kids are captured

and forced into street

and Internet prostitution.

And we need to set

a new norm in our city

and in our country that

that's just a line

we are not gonna allow people

to step over.

- If we're looking at


in Seattle, Washington,

what we're looking at

is the average girl

begins turning tricks

when she's 13 years of age.

- And we commissioned a cultural
