LETTER TO BRADLEY MYLES RE: BACKPAGE ARREST OF CARL FERRER

Jody Williams, Founder & Director Sex Workers Anonymous (formerly Prostitutes Anonymous) www.sexworkersanonymous.com (702) 488-1127 or (888) 666-1782 October 11, 2016 Bradley Myles c/o Polaris Via Email & Fax Re: Backpage Arrest Dear Mr. Myles: I'm sure an educated man such as yourself has probably heard of the poem popularized by John Godfrey Saxe entitled “The Blind Men & the Elephant”. This poem if you remember was based on a story that's been repeated in many cultures about the blind men called upon to describe an elephant. However, each one of them was feeling a different part of the animal – thus one was feeling the tail vs. the other feeling the tusk. While each was “correct” at the part they were describing - they were still “disagreeing” with each other about what it was simply because of having a different perspective.

Why?  Because men like Eliot Spitzer are too busy covering their ass.  Sure to up their numbers and look good for the press he'd throw a comp

RESOURCES FOR SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS

When our group started this movement to have sex trafficking not only recognized as "real" by this country, but also to have systems set up in place to help us get away from the trafficker, and find recovery from our experiences, we of course were considered the "go to" person for information because we had started the first hotline for adults to call in for help. Now anyone can put together a list of drug treatment programs.  However, the best drug treatment program in this country doesn't mean it's good for us.  Let me give you an example of what I mean.   There is a woman now dead because of Chris Batham.   http://www.laweekly.com/news/a-drug-rehab-mogul-built-an-empire-that-s-now-being-probed-by-the-fbi-da-and-state-of-california-6390686   Now I"m the first to say that this article could totally be a smear campaign against the guy so I'm not publishing this simply because of what the article said about him.  I'm publishing it because of wh
