Daughters for Sale: How Young American Girls Are Being Sold Online
It has been 40 years since a nine-year-old Vietnamese girl - Phan Thi Kim Phuc - was photographed running naked during the Vietnam War. Too hot! Her back was burning with napalm at the time. There is nothing to be seen in the background, except smoke. The military attack was by the South Vietnamese Air Force and was coordinated by an American military advisor. The photograph won Ut a Pulitzer Prize and went on to become an iconic image of the Vietnam War as well as an eye-opening image for the plight of child victims of a war.
A year-old girl resorted to installing cameras in her bedroom and recording the alleged physical abuse she endured because no one believed her, her mom and police said. The girl provided video evidence of the alleged assaults to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office in Florida, prompting the arrest of year-old Damon Becnel on Jan. In the two videos the girl showed authorities, Becnel could be seen head-butting her, grabbing her by the hair and throwing her head against the bed, according to the arrest report.
The video posted on Facebook of a school lunch fight, shows a girl throwing a boy to the ground, kneeing him in the face and then running off. The brawl happened Thursday and as of Tuesday night, the video had been viewed more than 12 million times on Facebook. The girl can be seen taking a few swings at the boy and at one point someone tries holding her back. Sonoma Valley High School principal Kathleen Hawing said she was disappointed to see the video and disappointed to see that there was an altercation on her campus. Students have said both teens in the fight are freshmen and that the boy goes to Sonoma Valley High School while the girl goes to Creekside High School -- an alternative school located on the campus.
