The following editorial appeared in The Fayetteville Observer:
This, more than anything else, explains why it’s going to be so hard to control the blight of human trafficking that is afflicting Fayetteville: The money is huge.
The Sheriff’s Office says 41-year-old Huaan Xie was using The Oasis Spa as a massage parlor that promoted prostitution of women of Chinese descent.
And this is why it will be so hard to stop: The money is really big. Investigators say The Oasis Spa was generating about $1.3 million a year. Multiply that by all the similar operations in cities across the country. This is going to be a tough rot to cure.
