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
