The Super Bowl police sting 2014 has been helped by technology.
The criminals have been reportedly digitally mapped by data trackers. "A former Army intelligence officer, Gearheart is part of a two-year partnership between trafficking researchers and a defense contractor called Praescient Analytics, whose 100 employees normally provide intelligence analysis to the U.S. Special Operations Command, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and others from the company’s headquarters in Alexandria, Va. The group’s goal is to discern how gangs and traffickers operate as 400,000 fans descend on New Jersey and New York for the country’s biggest sports-themed bacchanal and then apply that knowledge to next year’s game in Arizona."

As TEK reported last year "The problem is not simply willing prostitutes. 53-year-old Clemmie [Greenlee] was abducted and gang raped when she was aged just 12. Kept a prisoner by 'pimps' she, and the other girls, were handcuffed and injected with heroin. Set a target of customers to have sex with, during an event such as the Super Bowl, there was no escape.
Clemmie recalls, "If you don't make that number (of sex customers), you're going to dearly, dearly, severely pay for it. I mean with beatings, I mean with over and over rapings. With just straight torture. The worst torture they put on you is when they make you watch the other girl get tortured because of your mistake."
U.S. Department of Justice data shows that the average American prostitute begins working between the ages of 12 and 14. A shocking statistic and one that many Americans probably did not know."
Previous statistical data showed that 10,000 prostitutes were brought to Miami for the Super Bowl in 2010 and 133 underage arrests for prostitution were made in Dallas during the 2011 Super Bowl.
Opinion: Way past the time to clean-up Super Bowl.
