Observant Neighbors Lead to Trafficking Arrests

Three women have been charged in a human trafficking investigation. The arrests, made in Miami Beach Friday, were the result of local residents’ suspicions that illegal activity was taking place at several massage parlors.

According to reports from the Miami Herald, the seven-month sting by Miami Beach Police detectives led to the closing of four massage parlors and the rescuing of two women who had been trafficked in from China to provide money for sex.

REPORT: Some Uber Drivers Work Dangerous Shifts

A recent story from USA Today lays out how some Uber drivers work dangerously long shifts to maximize revenue. The article written by USA Today‘s Dinana Kruzman reads in part:

For some Uber drivers, long shifts have become the norm.  Dropping fares and profitable incentives lure them to keep driving past safe limits. Because the ride-hailing service doesn’t set a cap on how many hours its drivers can work at a time, there are few legal ways to stop them. By contrast, rival Lyft shuts off its app, which drivers need to find customers, after 14 hours at a time and doesn’t let drivers back on for six hours to let them rest. As a result, the potential danger for Uber passengers and drivers alike continues to grow, even as efforts to limit driving hours spring up across the country.

A family member told CBS Miami that he believes Wendell was in the wrong place at the wrong time. The victim leaves behind an 8-year-old daughter.

Initial reports lay out some similarities between this case and a negligent security case litigated by The Haggard Law Firm a decade ago.
