Shaming sex customers effective against trafficking

A California advocate against human trafficking says the method of shaming men who buy sex is a helpful tool to fight against traffickers.

Men who purchase sex services may now see their faces on the Internet or in a newspaper. The method of shaming nameless "Johns" is a tool for fighting sex trafficking that is being adopted across the country. In California, the website "Operation Reveal" posts photos of suspects; while in Oklahoma, "JohnTV" reels through possible sex customers.

Daphne Phung is the executive director of California Against Slavery. She says that while it may be somewhat unorthodox, this method does have success.
