Why Are Child Sex Trafficking Victims
Being Arrested?

Before you all begin this post, I want to say a few things.  On April 17, 2015, I published a post “Planned Parenthood Caught Giving Children Abortions“, and the sub-title was “U.S. Jails Sex-Trafficked Kids“.

I was able to utilize one of our new resources, Demanding Justice Report 2014, a study which was led by Ms Linda Smith, President and Founder, Shared Hope International, U.S. Congress 1995-99, Washington State Senate/House 1983-94.

This was a study of supply and demand of Sex Slaves, but especially about Child Sex Slaves.  We learned that the Law is really good about arresting the victim, but they also arrest the slavers sometimes.  Although they seldom EVER ARREST ANY BUYERS OF CHILD SEX.  You are probably asking yourself why, as you read this, and the answer is simple:  because the buyers are many times people in high places.

If you read this report, this Judge you are about to read about sounds just like what Ms Linda Smith talks about, CRONYS and GOOD OL’ BOYS.  This report is the first place I ever heard this called a “VICTIMLESS CRIME”, which made my blood boil white-hot.

Here we are 4 years later, and it is hard to believe 25 states still allow commercially sexually exploited minors to be charged and prosecuted for prostitution and human trafficking offenses despite federal and state laws that recognize these same minors as victims of child sex trafficking.

Last month a judge in Kansas made national headlines for erroneously claiming that two girls — just 13 and 14-years-old — were “aggressors” in a case where a 67-year-old man paid them to have sex.

“So, she’s uncomfortable for something that she voluntarily went to, voluntarily took her top off for, and was paid for?” said Kansas Judge Michael Gibbens.

“I wonder, what kind of trauma there really was to this victim under those peculiar circumstances?”

The public responded with outrage, but the issue of children who are victims of sex trafficking being charged for prostitution and minor crimes they were forced to commit is nothing new.

Writing in a piece for Wichita State University, Dr. Karen Countryman-Roswurm from the Center for Combating Human Trafficking, Wichita State University and Linda Smith from Shared Hope International explain:

As a society, we must ask, why did money sanitize what, in any other circumstance, would be considered child rape?  And more concerning, how did the exchange of money shift the narrative so dramatically so as to characterize children as aggressors in the crime of which they were victims?

The answers lie in the paradox in which victims of child sex trafficking are legally apprehended and consequently, socially stigmatized.  Twenty-five states, including Kansas, still allow commercially sexually exploited minors to be charged and prosecuted for prostitution and human trafficking offenses despite federal and state laws that recognize these same minors as victims of child sex trafficking.

This paradox still exists despite an increase in awareness, and specific laws to protect children from such offenses over the last couple of decades.

Criminalizing youth who have experienced the horrors of commercial sexual exploitation, and oftentimes survived traumatic experiences that predate the exploitation, is not only the gravest of injustices but also prevents survivors from receiving critical services and ongoing, specialized care.

Notably, the age of consent in Kansas is 16, meaning sexual contact between an adult and the minors in this case was not consensual.  Still, comments on social media surrounding this case tried to place blame on these two girls, calling them “delinquent,” “out of control,” “promiscuous,” and “prostitutes.”

As Countryman-Roswurm and Smith write, “as Kansans we must ask ourselves: How do we really view individuals who have been victimized by and survived human trafficking?  If we truly care, how do we shift our culture to recognize all survivors of sexual violence, including child sex trafficking, as unequivocally blameless in the conduct that constitutes their very victimization?”

Man Filmed Boys, Men All Over Boston

Boston Man Arrested for Child Exploitation, Filming Young Boys in Bathroom

A man was arrested for filming high school boys in a Boston Latin School bathroom and charged with several counts of child exploitation Monday.

Eric Tran Thai, 36, allegedly filmed boys using urinals and bathroom stalls between February and December 2017 at a BLS restroom, a U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts statement said Monday.

Officials allegedly discovered nearly 45 secretly recorded videos of boys at the BLS bathroom after locating several folders with school names during an analysis of recovered items from searching Thai’s home in March 2018.  Law officials seized several computer hard drives, cameras, thumb drives, digital storage cards and other computer devices during the search.  One of the folders said “Boston Latin High School.”

We definitely feel that we’ve been compromised,” BLS senior Josh Caban said, according to CBS Boston.

BLS found the allegations “seriously disturbing” and will host a meeting with parents to discuss the incident Tuesday, CBS reported.  Thai was a former BLS student.

Police began investigating Thai, 36, after two Boston College students reported being filmed in restrooms on separate occasions without their knowledge or consent on Feb. 6 and Feb. 27, 2018.  Thai allegedly admitted to police to not only “taking some pictures” of a man in the neighboring stall but also said he was involved with such activity for nearly a year.  He was arrested on state charges following the Feb. 27, 2018 report, according to the District of Massachusetts statement.

Each charge for sexual exploitation of children can be a mandatory minimum of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison.  Each charge can also provide a minimum of five years and up to a lifetime of supervised release and up to $250,000 in fines, the District of Massachusetts statement said.

BLS serves students in grades 7-12, making it both a middle and high school, according to the school’s website.

BLS did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

The case is brought as part of Project Safe Childhood.  In 2006, the Department of Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse.  For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit projectsafechildhood.gov/

Water Water Everywhere Except Childrens Cages

As Media Freaks Over 159 Measles Cases, Thousands of Kids Sold as Sex Slaves Out
of Foster Care

If ever you needed a clearer example of the mainstream media’s intentions in this country, you just need to compare the amount of coverage given to the 2019 measles non-crisis—used to bolster vaccine manufacturers’ bottom lines while calling for the silencing of those who advocate for vaccine safety—versus the 18,000 children who will go missing from government-run “protection care” this year—many of whom will be sold into sex slavery.

As the Google trend analysis below shows, the former received a ridiculous amount of coverage while the latter received almost zero.

Unless you’ve been under a rock lately, you’ve probably noticed the utter hysteria over the measles “epidemic” being shoved down the collective throats of America.

If one were to unquestioningly buy into said hysteria you’d think a deadly epidemic is sweeping the nation and children are dropping dead left and right.  But that’s simply not true and the reality is there is no epidemic and no one has died.

According to the current numbers from the CDC, there have been just 159 people in the country to report contracting the measles in 10 states.

As a result of the hysterical coverage, however, a widespread war on those who advocate for informed consent has been waged.

For a few dozens cases of measles, Washington declared a state of emergency and media coverage has been devoted round the clock.

To reiterate, as of February 21, 2019, there were only 159 cases of measles confirmed in the entire country, prompting hysteria.  But when 18,000 kids a year go missing, many of them being sold into sex slavery, we hear nothing but crickets from these same people.

It is true that some of these kids will run away, others will escape to get away from abuse, and some will get involved with the wrong crowd and follow along.  However, many others are outright stolen or kidnapped and end up being sold on the black market like a commodity.

Equally as disturbing as these children going missing is the fact that no one cares to go looking for them, making them easy prey for human traffickers and predators.  In fact, in some states, if one of these children goes missing for over 6 months, they are removed from the system entirely and those responsible for them couldn’t care less.

As Darcy Olsen writes for Arizona Central, “giving up on finding a child after six months is contrary to the very purpose of being a guardian.  Closing the books also gives predators a green light: If you can keep a kid hidden for six months, you’re home free.  Predators should know that we will never give up on finding these children — ever.”

While the media is incorrectly referring to the measles outbreak as an epidemic, the epidemic of child sex abuse is very real.

The fact is that America has a dark secret that no one wants to admit.  Talk of this secret will get you labeled as a conspiracy theorist, fake news, and outlets who report on it will have their organic reach throttled by social media and Google alike.

Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, many in the mainstream media and the government refuse to see this very real epidemic of child sex trafficking in the United States.  What’s more, according to the government’s own data, the vast majority of a portion of these trafficked kids are coming from the government system who promises to keep them safe—a horrifying irony indeed.  But it appears to be set up this way.

This system is set up to pull children from their families for ridiculous reasons and turn them over to for-profit systems—funded by your tax dollars—that use these children as cash cows and have no incentive to keep them safe.

In 1984, the United States Congress established the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children® (NCMEC), and, as part of Missing Children’s Assistance Reauthorization Act of 2013 they receive $40 million to study and track missing and trafficked children in the United States.

In 2017, NCMEC assisted law enforcement with over 27,000 cases of missing children, the majority who were considered endangered runaways.

According to their most recent report compiled from FBI data and their own, of the nearly 25,000 runaways reported to NCMEC in 2017, one in seven were likely victims of child sex trafficking.  Of those, 88 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.

Showing the scope of the abuse, in 2017 alone, NCMEC’s CyberTipline, a national mechanism for the public and electronic service providers to report instances of suspected child sexual exploitation, received over 10 million reports.  According to NCMEC, most of these tips were related to the following:

  • Apparent child sexual abuse images.
  • Online enticement, including “sextortion.”
  • Child sex trafficking.
  • Child sexual molestation.

Other governmental organizations have corroborated this horrifying trend.  In a 2013 FBI 70-city nationwide raid, 60 percent of the victims came from foster care or group homes.  In 2014, New York authorities estimated that 85 percent of sex trafficking victims were previously in the child welfare system.  In 2012, Connecticut police rescued 88 children from sex trafficking; 86 were from the child welfare system.

Equally as disturbing as the fact that most sex-trafficked kids come from within the system is the fact that the FBI discovered in a 2014 nationwide raid that many foster children rescued from sex traffickers, including children as young as 11, were never reported missing by child welfare authorities.

Even high-level government officials have been ensnared in these foster care abuse scandals.  As TFTP previously reported, multiple victims came forward and accused Seattle Mayor Ed Murray of sexually abusing them when they were children in Washington’s foster care system.

The records in that case, dating back to 1984, explicitly noted that Ed Murray should “never again be utilized as a certified CSD resource for children.”  It also showed that a criminal case was brought against Murray by prosecutors but in spite of the multiple accusations, charges were somehow never filed and his records buried.

As Snopes and the mainstream media in general attempts to smear those who try to call attention to alleged and very real child trafficking, the government’s own data shows how irresponsible this is.  While there are certainly some outlandish theories being presented online, the facts are outlandish enough to warrant serious scrutiny. Until this epidemic is taken seriously, the government, the media, and all those who deny it will remain complicit in keeping it going.

As Michael Dolce, who specializes in these horrific child abuse cases, pointed out last year, “we have set up a system to sex traffic American children.” Indeed, and, whether or not it is deliberate, sensationalizing a measles non-crisis is perfect cover to keep that system going.

O.U.R. AND WSP IN OPERATION NET NANNY

.jpg photo of Logo of task force of Washington State Police working with other agencys to stop child predatorsOperation Net Nanny: 22 Arrests in Thurston County

Thurston County, WA  –  22 dangerous sexual predators who targeted children in Thurston County were removed from the streets, thanks to a multi-day operation run by the Washington State Patrol (WSP) and several partner agencies.

Dubbed “Operation Net Nanny,” this is the 15th operation spearheaded by the WSP’s Missing and Exploited Children Task Force (MECTF), an Internet Crimes Against Children affiliate.  Since the original operation in August 2015, MECTF has netted a total of 246 arrests and rescued more than 30 children across the state.

MECTF’s primary mission is to proactively target those persons involved in child abuse and child exploitation via the internet.  “While the internet is a powerful tool for our nation, criminals using it to target our communities’ necessitates a need for this type of proactive investigations by our law enforcement troopers and partners in order to combat these horrible crimes,” says WSP Chief John R. Batiste.

“This operation is aimed at protecting our vulnerable children and making communities safer,” adds Chief Batiste.

From February 15, 2019 to February 20, 2019, undercover law enforcement officers used various websites on the internet and phone applications to communicate with people interested in having sex with children.  The operation generated hundreds of responses.  The would-be perpetrators who were arrested over the five-day operation traveled to meet with the undercover detectives posing as underage girls and boys with the intent to engage in sexual activity with children as young as six-years-old.

The names of the individuals arrested during the operation are:

  • Michael A. Brazielle, 22, Lacey, Washington
  • Jesse D. Jones, 41, Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), Washington
  • Juvenile, 17, Olympia, Washington
  • Daniel M. Kennedy, 27, Seattle, Washington
  • John D. Henderson, 38, Lacey, Washington
  • James E. Stillwell, 40, Tenino, Washington
  • Jason L. Koster, 25, Lacey, Washington
  • Regan F, Lane-Smith, 50, Tacoma, Washington
  • Robert L. Kelley, 52, Rochester, Washington
  • Greg E. Decker, 49, Graham, Washington
  • Charles A. Yates, 22, Olympia, Washington
  • Lamar A. Smith, 22, Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), Washington
  • Jonas M. Davis, 34, Tacoma, Washington
  • Jeffrey A. LeClair, 34 Fife, Washington
  • Todd L. Schock, 20, Olympia, Washington
  • William John Tyler Smith, 22, Transient
  • Joshua A. Garcia, 21, Olympia, Washington
  • John R. Greenfield, 41, Shelton, Washington
  • Raymond M. Suarez, 46, Youngtown, Arizona
  • Curtis Pouncy, 59, Aberdeen, Washington
  • Jason P. D. Boozer, 35, Lacey, Washington
  • Quenton Parker, 31, Joint Base Lewis McChord (JBLM), Washington

Anyone with information related to the suspects listed, or information leading to the identity of victims potentially involved in these cases please contact MECTF at mectf@wsp.wa.gov.

The collaborative effort involving more than 70 dedicated law enforcement officers, agents, and staff led to the success of this operation.

The funding for this operation was made possible due in part by support from the public as well as a generous donation from Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.).  O.U.R. is a non-profit 501(c)(3) who shares the mission of law enforcement agencies to save children and see that child predators are arrested and prosecuted.

O.U.R. is privileged and honored to partner with our nation’s law enforcement heroes in this important cause to combat the sexual exploitation of children in our nation’s communities.

Hate Crimes Are So Rare They Have To
Be Invented

For the last number of years, our nation has been awash in “hate crimes” against minorities, homosexuals, and transgendered folk.

Or have we?

The national media went into an instant froth in early February when actor Jussie Smollett, of the TV show “Empire,” claimed to have been beaten by two white guys wearing “MAGA” hats and yelling that Chicago is “MAGA country,” an assertion that is about as far from the truth as it is possible to get.  Smollett was able to tick two boxes on his victim card as both a black and a homosexual.

National race-baiters jumped into battle before the first pixels of the story had faded.   President candidates such as Kamala Harris and Cory Booker (of “Fartacus” fame) were quick to call it a “lynching,” and the rhetoric heated up from there. Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it “an affront to our humanity.”  Socialist poster child Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blistered the media for describing the incident as a “possible” hate crime.  Her anti-American, pro-Palestinian colleague Rashida Tlaib wrote hysterically that “the right-wing is killing and hurting our people.”

Now, however, Smollett has turned from a victim into a perp.   Chicago police are now saying the attack was staged by the actor with the help of two acquaintances of his from Nigeria who took five grand from Smollett for their part in the hoax. Celebrities from coast-to-coast are back-pedaling as fast as they can to get away from the mess altogether.  Even Nancy Pelosi deleted her nasty Tweet.

Last November, In Mississippi, an apparently horrid hate crime involving nooses turned out to be nothing of the sort.  In fact, the “perpetrators” were not racists but anti-racists.  The nooses were not an expression of racism, but a protest against racism.

The nooses in question were hung in the Mississippi state capitol building the day before the election last November.  Cindy-Hyde Smith, the Republican candidate and eventual winner, had made a lame joke about hanging that was clearly made in reference to the fate of horse thieves in the Old West.

The nooses had been found along with what the media called “hate signs,” which was a narrative that worked until the Mississippi Department of Public Safety released photos of the “hate signs.”  Here’s what they said:
On Tuesday, November 27th thousands of Mississippians will vote for a senator.  We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims.
We’re hanging nooses to remind people that times haven’t changed.

Oops.  The message of the nooses was not targeted at blacks but at supposedly racist whites.  The media slowly and reluctantly corrected their inflammatory headlines.

Also in Mississippi, just a week before the 2018 election that sent Donald Trump to the White House, a historic black church was burned and spray-painted with the message “Vote Trump.”  It was immediately labeled a “hate crime,” and remained so until authorities discovered that the culprit was actually a member of the congregation.  After the fire, while their church was being renovated, the congregation worshiped at a predominantly white church, a sign of the progress in race relations in the Deep South.

I am the co-author of Idaho’s marriage amendment, passed 63-37 in 2006 to enshrine man-woman marriage in our state constitution.  The homosexual lobby spent a good part of the campaign insisting that the amendment would unleash a wave of hate and violence targeted at gays in Idaho.

Sure enough, the day after the election, a twenty-something man filed a police report that he had been jumped while walking on our city’s greenbelt by attackers yelling anti-gay slurs and swinging their fists.  Ah, said the activists, there is your proof – we told you this would happen!

However, it didn’t take long for his story to unravel when he was questioned by police, and it turned out that he beat himself up because apparently there were no gay-haters in Boise willing to do it for him.

Andy Ngo is a journalist, editor (at Quillette), and photographer who started a thread on Twitter two days ago rehearsing the litany of fake hate crimes over the last several years.  (I’d show you but I have been suspended – again- by Twitter for telling the truth about sexual deviancy.)

Here is his giant list of fake hate crimes, just during the Trump administration.  In my judgment, we should simply abolish the “hate crime” designation altogether.  Every crime is a hate crime, and we should not give more legal protections to victims of some crimes than we give to victims of other crimes.  Justice indeed should be blind to color.

Peter Kirsanow, a member of the United States Commission on Civil Rights, points out that the facts contradict the media narrative that hate crimes are on rapid and disturbing rise:

FBI statistics for 2015 (the most recent available at the time of the 2018 U.S. Commission on Civil Rights Hate Crimes Hearing ) show that there were 1,997,700 violent crimes in the U.S.  A total of 5,850 crimes were designated hate crimes — whether violent or non-violent.  There were 15,696 cases of murder or manslaughter in the U.S., of which 8, or .0005, were designated hate crimes.  There were 764,449 aggravated assaults, of which 681, or .00089, were designated hate crimes.  There were 124,047 rapes, of which 12, or .000096, were designated hate crimes.  There were 327,374 robberies, of which 120, or .00036, were designated hate crimes.

In 2017, nearly 90 percent of reporting police departments registered zero hate crimes in their respective jurisdictions.  And the most recent data show that blacks are much more likely to commit hate crimes than whites.  In fact, blacks are approximately 200 percent more likely to commit hate crimes than whites.

At a Commission hearing on hate crimes, Kirsanow asked this question of the panel of criminologists, law-enforcement officials, and hate-crime experts:

“Are you aware of any data, studies, or other evidence that shows that designating a crime a hate crime deters, prevents, or reduces that crime, and second, whether designating a crime a federal hate crime reduces, deters, or prevents incidents of that crime?”

No one answered.  Kirsanow poses this question to us: “If designating a crime a hate crime doesn’t deter, prevent, or resolve such crime, what’s the purpose of the designation?  By now, most Americans are getting a pretty good idea.”

In other words, “hate crimes” are not about justice at all.  They’re about giving regressives a cudgel to beat conservatives about the head and shoulders until everybody figures out the crimes are fabrications.

Here’s a point worth pondering.  If hate crimes are so rare they have to be invented, perhaps America is not nearly as racist and homophobic as the Talking Snake Media wants us to believe.  And maybe, just maybe, the hate and racism are coming from the left rather than the right.
