Subject: FYI

Dear Chief of Police:

If it is, then please allow me to bring in a speaker from our program, to talk to your officers about the realities as WE face them out there in the sex industry.  Especially in southern California over the last 10 years.  

No, dating back farther.  I myself had men from the CIA during what's now known as Iran Contra approach me to assist them in bringing cocaine into this country to raise cash to buy guns for the Contra's.  They would have the African American gangs process and cut the drug, while asking the escorts through the three madams who oversaw Los Angeles at the time to transport the drug to big Hollywood parties in their purses.  To pay for these large amounts of drugs, I helped to write the women and drugs into the budget of films.  If you've heard about the scandal in the 1980's connected to Paramount Studios - that was what I was involved in.  There were three madams back then - myself, Alex Adams and Cheri Woods.  We were the "google" of the 1980's.  

You may have also heard of the Rampart lawsuits LAPD was dealing with.  The reason for this is the CIA operation had some cops helping out who could pretty much do whatever they wanted.  I was asked for sex by 1/2 of the police force for free upon demand and if I didn't deliver then I would be beaten, robbed, raped, and even arrested when I'd done nothing but say "no" to the demand for sex by these officers.  I mean who am I going to call when being raped by a cop?

The drugs were also transported by the police, or with a police escort.  When you mix in that kind of power, with heavy drugs, well after a while some of those cops feel like they can do whatever they want and that's what they did.  Some even set up their own escort service called "Talk of the Town".  If you were a wealthy, famous or powerful man in Hollywood - you either used their service, or you got busted for "solicitation".  The women who refused to work for them and pay them 1/2 of their money got busted for "prostitution".  Handy thing that law - the bad cops can ask you for whatever they want and if you said no - you're the "criminal" and it's over.

I really started to say "no" however when I was being asked to find women who could be sold outright to the wealthy Saudi's coming over here invading Los Angeles back then with their oil money.  When they found a girl they wanted, they'd drug her, put her on a diplomat's plane and she'd never be heard from again.  If you've seen the opening of Bruce Lee's "Enter The Dragon" I believe he was planning on saying something about this but he died three weeks before the film opened in 1973.  

No one believed this sort of thing was happening back then.  Nor that Chuck Barris, producer of the Gong Show and the Newlywed Show was a CIA operative.  The "Dating Game" was used to scout for sexy women, with their audition tapes being shipped out to wealthy men all over the world.  I mean who would think to double-check who came back from those exotic "dates" Chuck chaperoned on?  He was a top Hollywood producer after all.

Say anything to anyone about this and they'd lock you up for psychiatric observation.  I know as I tried and almost got locked up myself by a doctor who thought I was hallucinating.  I recanted and realized the world wasn't going to believe the "word of a whore" as they told us when we also tried to tell the Hillside Strangler Task Force the address and names of the two pimps who were attacking, raping, and trafficking ordinary women and turning them into prostitutes so the police wouldn't follow up on their stories.  It worked.

I decided to turn an old brothel into the first "safe house" in this country for adults in 1984.  I had the cops who were angry I refused to sell them women, carry their drugs, and give them sex upon demand for free - decide to set me up with a woman who would claim I had pimped her out of this empty warehouse.  There was no evidence I was doing this as I wasn't - so the LAPD arrested my mother and charged her with pimping me in order to make something stick.

Of course the "dirty" cops were scared that I'd talk to the prosecutor who figured out something was fishy, so then they tried to murder me a few times.  They did to me what is being done to Celeste Guap - they raised my bail up to $50,000 thinking I'd never make bail and then try and "Sandra Bland" me in jail.   They then threatened every bailbondsman in town not to take my cash.  So I had a trick of mine put up his house to get me out to safety or I think I'd be dead now.  When they realized I was going to beat the case because I wasn't doing anything illegal - they arrested my mother and charged her with pimping me.

Enough was enough and in 1987 I launched the first hotline for those wanting to leave the sex industry to call in.  We also launched the first "alternative sentencing" program in the USA right here in Los Angeles.  It was so successful, I was asked to duplicate it back east.  After that, we were asked to do another in the midwest, then Canada, then Nevada.  A ten year study was done on us in fact published in "Leaving Prostitution" about how effective our work has been.  To date, we've answered over 500,000 calls - five times more than Polaris has taken today.  We're now the oldest, and largest, group of male, female and transgenders who have left the sex industry in the world.

I moved back to Los Angeles in 2013 after hearing many complaints about how the police are treating sex workers, and victims of sex trafficking, again.  In Wichita, Kansas, in 2013, nine massage parlors were shut down and three pimps arrested.  One of those pimps was Gary Kidgell.  Gary had married a women who now lives in Pasadena in order for her to get her passport into the states.  Gary also threatened to kill the judge, the arresting officer and the prosecutor in the Wichita, Kansas case.

When his ex-wife said she wanted to stop prostituting for the Triad as she's done since she was eight years old and she's now in her 50's, two Pasadena officers drug her out of her home and put two fake prostitution convictions on her record.  When she tried to complain, they threatened to do it a third time, then deport her to China, where their man with the Chinese government would see to it she got the death penalty for the porn photos they had drugged and posed her in with her sister.  A year after this, Liang Yaohui was arrested who was with the Chinese government while running over 3,000 escorts and a five star hotel.  

When I went to see if these charges were in fact faked or real, I started receiving threats from Pasadena cops,  When I went to complain to the chief, those threats escalated to coming now from private investigators.  You know PI's like Greg Reese was with Kevin Brown who staged a completely fake rescue operation for the TV show "8 Minutes".  

Produced by Relativity Media who had just partnered with a Chinese government owned film company, who also films "OC Jails", "Intervention", "Catfish" and "Gigolo's" in Nevada.  Their cameras by the way can be seen going into any jail, and any treatment program, without signed HIPPA releases or anyone waiving their right to an attorney.  I've also seen cops on their show forcibly dragging women off on 5150 charges - just like they threatened to do to me if I continued to try and help this woman, and the others complaining about they way they'd treated.  Kevin Brown had just retired as an OC sheriff after 20 years of service when he was now claiming to be running a "rescue" operation in southern California.  No one seemed to wonder why he never mentioned Sex Workers Anonymous for adults, nor the Children of the Night hotline - two groups who started the sex trafficking movement itself.

When I tried making a complaint to ICE and Homeland Security, I was further threatened.  Not even the Chief of Police would listen to my complaints about this trafficking operation, and the threats I'm now receiving for talking to victims calling our hotline talking about also being forced to prostitute by police officers just as I was 30 years ago.   So I filed a complaint with the Office of Professional Responsibility.  I guess the Chief had his hands full with the Paul Tanaka case.  

When I went to the Dept. of Transportation and the LAX security, it brought back memories of when I'd seen women sold and put onto diplomat's planes.  I thought warning them to keep an eye out for these Chinese women would suffice.   I was wrong.   Seems Joohon David Lee, a Homeland Security, ICE and the trafficking office head was now walking women from Korea physically through the airport to ensure they'd make it past everyone who had been trained to be on the lookout for what is a "rogue" pimp - not a true trafficker who looks just like Joohon.

I was refused to input the training for the airport security about what trafficking looks like.  Instead they were taught about "pimps" - not men like Joohon or what to do when they see something like this:  Just as my calls to the trafficking task forces in Long Beach, San Diego, San Jose, Oakland, San Mateo, and of course Pasadena, and Orange County's trafficking task forces about what the victims are telling me calling our hotline.  See the Polaris National Trafficking Hotline just refers victims back to the local police.  Now if you're CALLING about the "local police" - then who do you call?  If you're calling about a pimp - you can get him arrested by calling 911 in two minutes.  But when you're calling about the police - well we've seen with Celeste Guap they aren't going to let you get help that easy now are they?   Not when they have too much they're worried about what you'll say if you get that help.

That's why instead of calling us when Celeste needed help and protection, nor allowed us to put her where we know she'll be treated well, they put her on a Florida flight where we're also getting calls from cops who are running a brothel down there masquerading itself as a "safe house for trafficking victims" while they sit in on the anti-trafficking meetings they threaten our members away from attending because God forbid they speak about the cops threatening sex workers to the others on the task force who think we don't exist because our members aren't there.

Just as when we tried to launch an outreach campaign last year and the year before, we started receiving threats from local officers, while Internal Affairs, and the Chief of Police refused to listen to the recordings of the threats we were receiving coming right out of the police stations to "back off" or find ourselves carted off for 72 hour "observations".  Since we've seen the police do just this falsely to a few people on Relativity Media's shows such as "intervention" - we believed the threats to be serious.

So I'd love to be out there offering to help those women in Glendale, especially when we're in the middle of an HIV epidemic that Charlie Sheen was so busy keeping under wraps about his status, that the fact we're now in an epidemic again like we saw in the 1980's has been validated to be infecting sex workers clear down to Mexico, and also Chinese and Korean men and women.  But you wouldn't know that since they stopped arresting juveniles a year ago - so we don't have any HIV rates for LA county's juveniles.  You know daughters who might be dating your sons and have no clue they're HIV positive because no one is out there doing any HIV/AIDS outreach any longer because every one's too busy looking for "trafficking victims" to realize that if they are infected, and they are being forced to prostitute - that again we're looking at another epidemic like we had in the 1980's and we need to have a serious talk about it soon.

I've got members who would love to do outreach to the local prostitutes, but we can't because of threats we're receiving again from people who are wearing badges.  With all the "john stings", the clients aren't exactly wanting to step up and tell you they're also being blackmailed, robbed, etc. by these traffickers.  Who not only are getting information about their bank accounts, their companies, but also about their houses.  So after they're cleaning out the john's bank accounts, they're then stealing the equity out of their homes.  The "johns" are too afraid to go to the police about it for fear they'll be arrested since that's all they hear about on the news anymore.

This is MADNESS.  Now if you want to be like the visionary that Tom Bradley, Chief Gates, and Sheriff Block was, and talk to us about letting us put together a program that will WORK again  - then you let me know.  Unlike this "end demand" nonsense  that APPEARS to be generating federal grant money and grants from Shawnee Hunt - it's costing you way more with respect to the damage to the health of this community, the citizens trust in the authorities, and honestly I feel like we're right where Mexico was when Pablo Escobar was in Congress, and the Colombian Cartel was running Columbia to the point where the only way they could be stopped was to create a "faceless justice committee".

Because right now I've spoken to just about every female FBI agent, Homeland Security, sheriff, city council, mayor, attorney general, and prosecutor who tells me they've been threatened and they're scared to do anything right now.  I mean look at Mayor Schaaf - she's gone through THREE Chief's of Police before she just stopped looking, Kamala Harris is bailing out of here for Congress, and we had a FBI agent have her witness "get lost" for three days and the only cop who was charged was the one who brought him a phone to call her for help?

To top it off, after all that work to get Joohon arrested and exposed - I now find out he CAN'T BE CHARGED with trafficking?  He's now driving a limo in Las Vegas where he now lives and will retire on his PENSION after what he did.  Probably the same limo owned by Charles Horky who was exposed as using his cab and limo company to traffick women in Las Vegas while Joohon was falsely locking up an innocent family to make himself appear to be "doing something to fight sex trafficking".  

How many more FAKE victims, rescuers, and so called task force members are going to have to be exposed before someone realizes that when you want to help an alcoholic you call Alcoholics Anonymous, and when you want to help a sex workers, you call Sex Workers Anonymous? I'd appreciate it if someone would realize we're the only group out here not trying to get a federal grant, nor a piece Swanee Hunt's grant money, nor are we running a Kickstarter campaign, and we certainly don't have dirty laundry we're covering up like forcing local prostitutes to have sex with us.  I guess I have to become a neighborhood watch captain to get our complaints heard because when we were saying it was happening no one returned our calls.  But the minute a "watch captain" called - suddenly it comes to light that yes women were being forced to prostitute and have sex with LAPD officers.  

Meaning don't you think this means that you can't have officers who are watching each other's backs, and prosecutors who are watching their backs, making real sure we're not even given a seat at any of these trafficking meetings - let alone are we getting any communication or assistance in just allowing us to do our normal outreach to help these women, men and transgenders?

SB1193 requires that signs be posted with the National Trafficking Hotline in all adult businesses in this state.  We've got signs donated to us with those hotlines, along with ours who doesn't go right back to the police so many people aren't just ignoring that poster - only I can't get anyone to answer me as to WHO we call to get the citation issues when a business owner doesn't want to comply with the law.  So if you know - that would be awesome of you to let us know so we can move forward with our outreach in this area.

You can reach us at the numbers on the enclosed flyers.  Thank you.

Dear Mr. Marrow:

Growing up in Los Angeles, and being born only two years after you (1960), you and I both witnessed a lot of the same split between the reality of what we saw on the streets vs. what was being portrayed about the situation in the media portraying what was the cocaine epidemic of the 1980's.

I remembered your courage in coming out with the song "Cop Killer".  I remember you using your celebrity to try and enlighten people as to what was going on in the south central areas of Los Angeles - what was REALLY going on.  You were trying to let the world know about how the African American community was being targeted by not only police - but by the whole "prison industrial complex" defended by major media at a time when we had no internet to get "our" side of the story out.  This rendered us virtually voiceless especially when even cameras were very bulky at that time and cell phones didn't even exist yet.

You and I both were watching nightly news showing homes of older retired people having their homes knocked over with battering rams on the "suspicion" it was a crack house.  We were seeing whole communities having their doors kicked in by cops without warrants in raids much identical to that of a time when Hitler was targeting the Jews.  We also watched how the media was bombarding America with images of Bloods and Crips blaming them for the cocaine epidemic that we saw in the 1980's - again much how Hitler was creating propaganda to justify his targeting of the Jews.

We also watched as the CRASH units would stop a bunch of kids who were hanging around outside because their homes had no air conditioning to photograph their tattoos for "gang signs" all while calling them names, tormenting them, abusing them verbally, and doing everything possible to try and provoke one of them into saying something that could justify an arrest - or even to shoot one of them down while unarmed and call it "protesting arrest".

You knew those kids couldn't even drive a car - let alone were they the ones responsible for the planes and boat loads of cocaine that was being brought into this country right past the Coast Guard, Border Patrol, and Air Traffic Control who were all being greased to let them pass because in reality it was the CIA using the cash derived from those sales to fund guns to the Contra's "off the books" that was what was behind all of this while scapegoating the African American poorer community..

While there's plenty of movies now out explaining this - films like "Cocaine Cowboys I and II", "Freeway: Crack in the System", and the Iran Contra hearings that came later, these films only touched upon the drug trafficking part of the situation - while also lightly touching upon the fact what made it work was the racism that was also being used as a smoke screen to cover up the true guilty culprits behind it all - men of all races and nationalities who were part of our own government and law enforcement.

The best film I saw to try and explain how they were using racism as a smoke screen to cover Iran Contra - was another film you were in "Uprising - Hip Hop and the LA Riots".  This tried to explain that again pre-internet days the only voice that those people had to try and tell the world what was happening to them was music.  Not music that required 10 years of violin lessons, or even a huge studio to produce - but music that could be recorded by anyone, then placed on a cassette tape to be sold out of the trunk of a car to "spread the word".  A culture that you grew out of - using this not to sell albums - but to tell the world what was happening in your community.  While is one of the reasons why I've followed your career.  Yes you grew out of that community, even being a pimp at one time - but you also have tried to use your status to make a difference.

Even though I appear white (I'm actually part Native American and African American) - addiction and fear creates a level playing field.  Meaning when these people wanted to get the cocaine from the boats into the Hollywood homes of film and TV producers - they came to the three madams who dominated Los Angeles at that time.  That was myself, (dubbed the "High Tech Madam"), Alex (The Beverly Hills Madam), and Cheri (the Hollywood Madam).

They put the cocaine into the purses of our escorts, who then carried them onto the movie sets and the Hollywood parties so films and TV shows could be created to fuel demand for the drug.  As well as people could be flushed out capable of the financing and legal paperwork for some of these operations (like a group of dentists in Encino who I helped to coordinate who claimed one shipment was for their surgical procedures to get it past customs).

Cheri Woods also worked with Chuck Barris who has since made the film "Confessions of a Dangerous Mind" which also confessed his connections with the CIA.  Connections where he showed the "Dating Game" was using to get paperwork to take women into other countries at a time when passports were much easier to forge than they are today.  What was left out of that story, and so far ALL of these films/stories about Iran Contra - is the sex trafficking aspect of them.  I say that because the "Dating Game" was also used to identify beautiful women who had no family - so that when they disappeared no one would "ask any questions".

Those women were then filmed in "auditions".  Some of these women were then given paperwork to go into countries where they never were heard from again.  Some of these women were sold here in the states to drug lords and cartels.  I know because these same people also asked us to help them locate women for this purpose as well as to be involved with the drugs.  When we refused - we were arrested and then either threatened with long jail terms or even death.  It was very easy to kill someone in jail as Sandra Bland's family can attest.  Especially when you're "just another hooker" in the eyes of the court.

When I was arrested in 1984 - I couldn't mount a defense.  Who would have believed me then?  Stories of planes full of cocaine, CIA agents, warehouses where they were processing the cocaine, with crates of the drug going into Hollywood movie studios while the poorer qualities were mixed with heroin to be set up at crack houses to destroy the African American community and reputation all while the only way the truth was getting out was on cassette tapes filled with rap songs would have just got me locked up in the nut ward.  You knew it and I knew it.  

I set about to change just as you have in your way with the films you've made.  Which is why I'm writing you.  Because it's happening it all over again.  The "war on drugs" of the 1980's has now become the "war on trafficking" of 2000's.  I want you to see how the cops are now photographing strippers tattoos in the same identical manner as the CRASH units used to do with the kids of south central.

There's a campaign coming out on October 22nd called the "No Such Thing" campaign.  Note their "poster child victim" is an African American girl.  They had Jada Pinkett Smith leading a CNN Freedom "documentary" into Atlanta, GA last month.  Now this campaign is being led by Malika Saar - another African American woman who was photographed launching this campaign complete with corn rows in her hair!  The celebrities they have supporting it are P. Diddy and Russell Simmons - again African American.  So on the face of it - they're trying to create in the public's mind the connection between "sex trafficking" and the African American community.  The CIA is quite versed in brainwashing techniques using the media - because that's how they drove the cocaine epidemic in the 1980's and how they're doing it now.

The truth is the campaign is being funded by the McCain Institute (of course completely coincidentally that this is right before an election and when McCain is pushing an abortion bill through Congress), and the California Endowment.  In other words, rich white guys are who is being funding these projects that are putting an African American face on domestic sex trafficking.

Well why not?  From 1987, when I started the modern day sex trafficking movement (which can be validated by clippings I have up at, until the TVRA of 2003 passed - I was seeing progress made.  I mean people do believe it's real now.

But after that TVRA of 2003 passed - the white religious right wing Republicans used it to "hijack' this movement into being a tool to now attack the African American community in a new "politically correct" manner by calling their racial and sex worker targeting "rescue".  Because that's what's happening.  If you confront the police for example about why they were forcing those strippers to be photographed - they'll say "they were fighting trafficking".  That's funny - because as the founder of the movement and the founder of Sex Workers Anonymous I can assure you what they did has NOTHING to do with "fighting trafficking".

If this was about "fighting trafficking" - then tell me why the ONLY thing I'm seeing coming out of these so called "sex trafficking task forces" are police targeting African American men dubbed "traffickers" while ignoring all of pleas from the founder of the movement to come do something about "real trafficking" that's happening right now all over this country.

For the last seven years - I can not get one single police officer, district attorney, attorney general, judge, politician or even a reporter to do anything about evidence I have about a sex trafficking ring that's tied to the Hell's Angel's, the Russian mob, the Aryan's, and Liang Yaohui who was part of the Chinese government who only a few months ago was arrested and exposed for doing what I've been knocking on doors about for the last seven years.

So I'm writing to you to ask for your support and help.  I'm in the process of writing a book about all of this which I'm calling "Anatomy of a Movement".  I'm also going to be writing an episode for "Law and Order - Special Victims Unit" about a rescue we did where no one in the sex trafficking offices, agencies or the advocates would do anything to lift a finger to help these victims.  

You inspired me with your music Mr. Marrow.  I can't sing rap like you do  - so I'm writing a script.  I hope to meet you once I get it done and submitted to the producers.  You're one of my heroes.
