The operation arrested four pimps in all according to an announcement by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The operation was far bigger than just the bust in the Bay Area. All last week authorities across the United States arrested 120 suspects and recovered 84 victims. The sting in the Bay Area was part of a larger effort called Operation Cross Country which takes place every year. This year marked Operation Cross Country's 11th successful year.FBI Director Christopher Wray gave a statement saying, "We at the FBI have no greater mission than to protect our nation’s children from harm. Unfortunately, the number of traffickers arrested — and the number of children recovered — reinforces why we need to continue to do this important work."

Director Wray went on to say, "This operation isn’t just about taking traffickers off the street. It’s about making sure we offer help and a way out to these young victims who find themselves caught in a vicious cycle of abuse." Several smaller arrests or citations were made to women and men for prostitution in the Bay Area including give men who were arrested for solicitation of a minor.

On the water down in New Orleans

My baby's the pearl of the quarter

She's a charmer like you never seen

Singing voulez vous

Where the sailor spend his hard-earned pay

Red beans and rice for a quarter

You can see her almost any day

singing voulez vous

And if you hear from my Louise

Won't you tell her I love her so

Please make it clear

When her day is done

She got a place to go
