Law enforcement wouldn’t engage, Joette Katz remembered. It had taken weeks to even find the girl, and she was about to be sold to some creeper out of state.

Then, Katz and her team found an angle. The case had a gang connection, they said, and suddenly the officers perked up.

Police rescued the victim last year, just in time. At least, they rescued her in time to stop the sale. Her face had already become collateral damage.

 A dollar sign tattooed across her skin branded her as a commodity. She was her pimp’s property.
