FIGHTING MODERN TRAFFICKING

https://www.justice.gov/usao-cdca/pr/former-hsi-special-agent-pleads-guilty-taking-bribes-korean-businessman-being  This is a case about Joohoon David Lee - a Homeland Security agent who brought women in physically from Korea to be forced to work in massage parlors as a prostitute.

Do you want to know what fighting modern sex trafficking looks like in America?  Back in 2013, a Chinese woman came to me about being trafficked.    Details about that case are here - http://sanitytodayonline.blogspot.com/2015/05/the-sound-of-music-and-pasadena.html  I had never worked on an Asian case before because I don't speak Mandarin.  However, this woman spoke English so I was able to speak to her about what was happening to her, and other women who couldn't speak English.

When I initially went to the Pasadena Chief of Police about her supposed false arrests - I was ignored.  I then went to LAPD and was ignored.  After that, I then went to Internal Affairs, Homeland Security, the Attorney General, politicians, and the list went on about every door that I went to who was ignoring me.   No one wanted to talk to me about a woman drug out of her home by two cops in front of her mother and son and then supposedly slapped with fake prostitution cases and death back in China after being deported if she didn't go "back to work" as a prostitute.

Did I let that stop me?  No.

In fact, I made a list of who I could write to about this case I hadn't written yet and started checking off names.  So also in 2013, I wrote a letter to the Chinese government about what was going on.

Note the date of Liang Yaohui being arrested.  https://thenanfang.com/npc-member-latest-casualty-of-dongguan-prostitution-crackdown/ It's 2014 - a year after my letter was sent.

After the Pasadena Chief of Police ignored me, I then went to the city business manager.  Then I did yes have the Chief start calling me five times a day literally asking me to "come in and speak to him in person" about this case.

I told him there would be no point until he had understood the depth of this case and to get a copy of the files from the Wichita authorities before I came in to talk to him about it.  I told him I'd wait two weeks to come in to give him time to get, and read, the Wichita files.  That way he'd know what I was talking about in our meeting.

https://www.justice.gov/usao-ks/pr/three-charged-sex-trafficking-wichita-massage-parlors  This is the case I was referring to.

Six months after this woman had reached out to me - this case in Wichita went down.

However, the back story was the arresting officer in Wichita had heard about "Operation Dollhouse" in 2007.  http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/SAN-MATEO-COUNTY-Two-lawmen-caught-in-raid-of-2563465.php    This case happened after I had been ignored by Chief Gillispie, and threatened by an FBI agent.

So I brought in a reporter to check out my accusation about sex trafficking in Las Vegas and corruption.  The reporter asked for a "ride along" to a stake-out.   Then pushed for a surprise raid.  The result was this case.

However, please note the reporter's name, nor my name were in any of the press at the time.  I was told by both a reporter at the Sun, and the Review Journal, they had been told there was a "ban on printing" my name, or the name of Sex Workers Anonymous.  So despite trying to get someone in the press to talk to me about "Operation Dollhouse" and the fact Vegas was only one stop in their network which spanned the country - no one would and the charges against the two cops were dropped.

Please note further Greg Munks, one of the officers, was also on the San Mateo police force.

So the Wichita cop had started trying to get them arrested in 2009 after a long investigation.  Only it wouldn't work because to quote him "he had too much interference from the local police".  So he says he waited until he retired from the police force, to go to work for zoning, and that's where he was working when he got this case pulled together.

This was his first attempt in 2009 -https://www.fbi.gov/kansascity/press-releases/2009/kc101409.htm

I figured if I asked the Pasadena Chief of Police if he had the Wichita files - he might lie to me and say "yes" when he hadn't.  So after about a week had passed - I contacted the Wichita police, prosecutor, and court. They each told me that "no one from Pasadena has called to see that file".

At the same EXACT time the Pasadena Chief is calling to have me "come down" to talk to him, a private investigator from San Mateo appears on the radar.   Please note Woodall Investigations also is a "K9 Handler".  https://www.thumbtack.com/ca/san-jose/private-investigators/investigation-services

Ms. Woodall was listed in San Mateo at the time she started speaking to me in trafficking groups on Linkedin.  Yes I screenshot this activity.  Only she didn't know me from Adam - yet every time I'd make a comment to anything about trafficking in Linkedin groups - she'd pop in right under me with "you're crazy".  I'd post something and she'd comment "you're crazy".  Even to the point of one time saying "you're 5150 and need to be locked up".

Notice her resume says she "assisted anti-trafficking task force", i.e., Greg Munks who is on the trafficking task force in San Mateo  http://www.slideshare.net/SandraWoodall/sandra-woodall-resume-1220151

Notice on page 5 of her resume it says she is a "member of the Defenders Shield Team" and again she works with the K9 unit.  Greg Munks also runs a program for inmates and dogs.  http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_18456921

Greg Munks had one person run against him for office after Operation Dollhouse, Juan Lopez. http://www.smdailyjournal.com/articles/lnews/2014-11-15/jail-workers-snagged-for-contraband-former-sheriff-candidate-others-arrested-for-sneaking-phone-and-drugs-to-inmate/1776425133421.html    

One thing NOT noted in this article however is the phone in question which was "smuggled into the jail" was supposedly a phone that an informant who had been "lost" in the jail used to call the FBI agent and let her know where he was.

In other words THIS phone http://www.dailynews.com/general-news/20160406/paul-tanaka-is-found-guilty-of-corruption-charges

Back to Ms. Woodall - when in these Linkedin groups for trafficking topics I started noticing a pattern.  Not only would she respond to everything I said with a response of "you're crazy" but she started calling people I was talking to and TELLING them "Jody is crazy" essentially.

I learned of this by people calling me to tell me of this and either letting me hear her voice messages, which I recorded, or sending me her emails, which I saved.  Without exception, anyone I so much as said one word to online - she was on them with telling them to "stay away from Jody" and "Jody is crazy".  I'd like to add I've never spoken to the woman before this same week that the Pasadena Chief was calling me to "come down to the station" and talk to him in person.

So I called Dan who founded the Defenders and asked him not only why this woman was attacking me this way, and stalking me online, but further why was she not helping me with this Pasadena Asian woman's case?

I mean if she's such an "anti-trafficking advocate" why was she not only attacking me, but also refusing my attempts to ask for her help with what this woman was telling me was going on not just in Pasadena, and not just Wichita, but also San Mateo?

In fact, one of the pimps convicted in the Wichita case not only owns property in Pasadena, but he also has a website up offering Asian prostitutes in San Mateo which I saved.   When I asked Ms. Woodall if instead of spending her time attacking me if she'd like to go check out this San Mateo address where trafficking victims were supposedly being forced to prostitute - she'd refuse.

Anyway, Dan tells me she was NOT a member of the Defenders as her resume says, and he had "only talked to her once on the phone".  The day after he told me this he then calls me up and says "she just called me and told me you're crazy and if I 'value my reputation in the field' I'll stop speaking to you entirely".

Well isn't that interesting because I've worked with Dan on past cases when we've needed his type of help and now she's not only stalking me, attacking me, and refusing to help me with a San Mateo case, but now she's trying to get Dan to stop helping our victims?  Interesting.

Also at this same EXACT time I have Meg (Margaret) Munoz, who is simultaneously running Abeni with the Orange County Human Trafficking Task force AND the Orange County chapter of SWOP (Sex Workers Outreach Project) emailing me on Facebook acting very strange. (Interestingly Chief Sanchez in Pasadena resides in Orange County.)  She's another woman I've never met, never spoken to, have no idea who she is.

The same month this all went down was when I had served the producers of "8 Minutes" and A&E with a threat to sue them for defamation if they did not take their show off the air based on the show being faked.

If it was a random operation where only Hispanic women were being called up to the hotel room working as prostitutes, and talking about how they were prostitutes because they couldn't feed their kids, their kids were taken from them, they were on drugs - and basically making it appear that all Hispanic low income women are drug addicts, prostitutes, bad mothers, etc. that's one thing.  But when it's being STAGED then that's defamation of not only Hispanic women but ALSO of sex workers who they kept repeating every two minutes LITERALLY these women were "trafficking victims" over and over (I bring up repeating every two minutes because I timed it - which also interestingly is the same time Derren Brown used to brainwash his victim in the innocence experiment https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJNHQi4uTTY.  Meaning he kept repeating his suggestion to his victim every two minutes.)

But the week after I'd served the notice, and the show was taken off the air 8 hours later, this Meg starts accusing me of having "outted the identity of the woman on the show".  Which I had not done.  I challenged her to show me proof of where I'd exposed anyone's identity which she could not do because I had not done it.  But that doesn't shut her up.  She then starts telling people online that I'm "threatening her" and "stalking her" and I'm "upset because she refused to partner with us" and I'm sitting back going WTF?  I hadn't asked to partner with her nor could I.  I run a 12 step group and therefore we CAN'T partner with anyone.

Then she escalates and sends Domina Elle to go by our post box address who then verifies it's not my house in a slam then posted on us at www.sexworkersanonymous.org  Well now you know why we don't have an office and I don't post my home address online.  Meg was asking anyone if they knew where I lived so they could "send someone out to arrest me" for these supposed threats I'm making against her.

My response?  I sent a letter to both of them saying I was going to file a complaint for defamation if they continued lying about me online, and I'd further get a TRO filed against them to make sure they didn't come near me.  I further told Ms. Woodall I would file a complaint against her PI license letting them know she found it more productive to follow my IP activity to stalk and defame me for 8 hours a day INSTEAD of taking a look at how this transnational sex trafficking operation had women in San Mateo they were trafficking while claiming to be helping trafficking victims in her marketing.

They both stopped.

However, I'm still now getting calls from Chief Sanchez's assistant now asking me to come down to talk to them.  I told her I'd "come in once he had the Wichita files" and to let me know once they did and then I'd come in.  What's the point otherwise?  I then contacted Wichita again to follow-up and they said "nope - no one from Pasadena has called".

Making me think "why does he want me to come in so badly?"  Ironically, this was about the same time as Sandra Bland was found dead in her cell.  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ex-texas-charged-sandra-bland-death-court-article-1.2573954  Especially after hearing she was pulled over by a cop while being  a known advocate against police wrongdoing and then she's found dead hung in her jail like a long list of people before her it seems.

Needless to say - I thought twice about going into the Pasadena station without an escort of some kind like a reporter or the media.

But that didn't mean I was out of ideas.  If Homeland Security was going to ignore me - well how about the LAX security?

So I wrote https://www.tsa.gov/ and told them this ring was bringing in women from China who were between 40 and 55 years of age to be trafficked in the USA and to be "on alert".

Which is at the same time they switched from Chinese to Korean women.  http://www.bellevuereporter.com/news/365214201.html  Meaning someone from Homeland Security had to know about the letter I sent.

So if the police had Internal Affairs, I thought "well Homeland Security must have someone who checks into what they're doing".  Which is the Office of Public Responsibility.  So I wrote them.

I invite you to read the part where it says here that about a year ago the "Office of Public Responsibility conducted the investigation in this case" against Joohoon David Lee.  https://www.justice.gov/usao-cdca/pr/former-hsi-special-agent-pleads-guilty-taking-bribes-korean-businessman-being

Probably had nothing to do with my letter to them about a trafficking operation which was bringing women in through LAX to staff massage parlors, licensed legal massage parlors who did NOT advertise on Backpage, who also had stops in their network in San Mateo, and Las Vegas, as well as other states going clear back to New York.  http://nypost.com/2015/04/05/inside-the-1-billion-business-of-erotic-massage-parlors/

Now I had someone who had retired from Homeland Security tell me "Joohoon David Lee was an isolated bad apple" and there was no "systemic corruption within Homeland Security requiring any special investigation or measures".

Really?

It began and ended with him?  Impressive.

What do you think?
