MARTHA STEWART BOYCOTT

Dear Martha Stewart and Associates:

I've seen the commercial on VH1 with Martha Stewart dancing with Snoop Dogg to promote the "Martha and Snoop's Dinner Party" series.   http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/martha-stewart-snoop-dogg-vh1-dinner-party-1201832529/   To say I'm offended is an understatement.  This country is having a record epidemic not only of juvenile sex trafficking, but we're also in a second HIV/AIDS epidemic as well as a Hep C and HPV virus http://www.hpvepidemic.com/trailer  (diseases which are all sexually transmitted).  http://www.avert.org/professionals/hiv-social-issues/key-affected-populations/sex-workers

http://america.aljazeera.com/articles/2015/4/3/hiv-epidemic-southern-indiana.html

http://kff.org/global-health-policy/fact-sheet/the-global-hivaids-epidemic/

http://www.epidemic.org/thefacts/theepidemic/

Because of the focusing only upon the issue of sex trafficking itself, without acknowledging the fact it involves sex while victims are not exactly trained in proper "safe sex" techniques by their traffickers because frankly it profits them more NOT to have their victims engaging in safe sex - we are about to lose another generation of young people which may number more than those we lost in the 1980's.

The reason for this is because at least the media was addressing this issue in the 1980's while it's completely ignoring this documented epidemic in the young, and sex workers, today.  That and the fact people deliberately set up the AIM Clinic, which used to be run by Dr. Sharon Mitchell, out of business which had been keeping these diseases "at bay" successfully before being shut down about five years ago (replaced with the very ineffective AHN headed by Michael Weinstein who seems to care more about being the new porn czar rather than about our public health).  http://patch.com/california/northridge/clinic-for-adult-film-actors-is-closed-for-good

So the issue of sex trafficking is a true life threatening urgent issue today.  Now we see Martha Stewart, a woman most young women look up too as a role model, dancing and "frolicking" with Snoop Dogg - a CONFESSED sex trafficker as he outlined his year long RV "pimp revival" national tour in 2003 in Rolling Stone Magazine.   http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/snoop-lion-opens-up-about-his-pimp-past-20130508

The courts, police, etc., are experiencing such a shortage of operating funds that in Nevada for example the police will not even come to the scene of a car accident, even when there's bodily damage with an ambulance called, because of the shortage of funds in the budget.  http://nvcopblock.org/469/lvmpd-budget-shortages-minorities-recession/?doing_wp_cron=1476789397.1781239509582519531250

Which is why I got a call into our hotline at www.sexworkersanonymous.com by a concerned politician who needed someone to go in and rescue victims from this operation asking us to do so because of their concern if they sent in the Nevada police - then the press over such an event would cost the state "more than the OJ trial cost California".

This was because Snoop had not confessed to what he was doing while this was going on.  Instead he waited until the statute had expired in most states he committed the crime of pimping, sex trafficking and/or pandering according to each state's definition of what he did before basically gloating in the press about how he not only committed this crime in broad daylight, but knowing no prosecutor would want to take on the task of coming after him ESPECIALLY because of who the "johns" were in his so called "fantasy" - NFL players.  http://www.shouselaw.com/nevada/pandering.html

Who if you've seen the film "Concussion" then you know the NFL has their own set of "influencers" who protect them from the press which would result if anyone was arrested in this year long FLAUNTING of what was the building of a national sex trafficking operation.

In case you didn't read his confession, he brags about how he took an RV from city to city on his national Playboy tour, invited young women onto it, then after telling them he had a "fantasy" of wanting them to engage in sex for money with these different NFL players, he then claims he "returned the money".

I'm sorry but if I rob a bank and then "return the money" an hour later this does not give me a "get out of jail free card".  Not in my book anyway.  What he does not explain further however is what happened to these women he also brags about "kicking off the RV" when he got down with them.  Which was local pimps were standing by to grab these women and then put them to work in their operation - against their will in most cases.

First of all, I would like to ask every young woman who works for Martha Stewart to imagine being invited onto an RV to meet Snoop Dogg, his friends, and these NFL players.  Then I'd like them to realize when they enter this RV (which has one way in or out mind you), it's stock full of drunken, stoned, men who are all wealthy, famous and for the NFL players - some of them are 300 pound athletes who could probably lift you with one finger off the ground - and then I want you to imagine you want to say "no" when asked to do this.  No I ask you - would you feel perfectly safe in saying "no"?

Also, I'd like to know what steps were taken to verify each women who was invited onto the RV had their ID checked to make sure they were over the legal age of consent.  Which I need to add in Nevada is FIFTEEN years of age.  So understand that some of these women were SIXTEEN YEARS OF AGE.  The first woman we went to rescue was chained like a dog to a toilet in a vacant apartment while four months pregnant by a pimp with a rap sheet of felony violent arrests.  The "tricks" were brought to this apartment, and she was not allowed to communicate with anyone.

We had to stage an operation to get the pimp out of the apartment long enough to call a locksmith and get her out of there - knowing mind you we'd been told the police were not going to even respond to helping us because the state "didn't want the publicity" of going after this pimp who would then turn back to Snoop - and the publicity which would result.

This woman has had her baby, but to get her home and have everyone safe her whole family had to relocate because this trafficking operation knew where they lived.  By going from city to city on this tour doing this, what resulted was a building of a network of traffickers I've been having to content with in our program for over 30 years now and one of the reasons why I formed our hotline and program in the first place - because the police not only wouldn't help me when I was in this same situation 30 years ago myself, but I was even being trafficked BY local police, CIA, and FBI during Iran Contra and what became the Rampart lawsuits in the 1990's.  http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/lapd/scandal/cron.html

Because victims of sex trafficking could not, and still can't in most cases, call the police for help - this is again why I had to form our hotline and program at our expense.  I say that because federal grants were not available in the 1980's because the issue wasn't even considered "real" in the 1980's.  The Trafficking Act of 2000 giving this issue federal "recognition" as real was only passed 16 years ago.  This pregnant victim we rescued first on this tour is so traumatized not only by what happened to her, but the very idea that the state didn't want to rescue her "officially" because of the fear of the expense and publicity in doing so which was so great they called our little band of volunteers to do it instead "off the record", that she literally can't leave her house without going into panic attacks of what might happen to her if she did and thinking no one would come to her rescue then.

Especially when she's concerned if she did go to the press about her ordeal that men like Snoop, who has a record if you remember for a murder trial he beat in the past, might come after her to silence her.  I mean what's to stop him considering what he's already gotten away with?

While we have people like Kamala Harris and Catherine Cortez-Masto insisting they "care about the issue of sex trafficking", two Attorney General's for just two of the states where he, and his cronies, executed these crimes - while neither one of them have issued a warrant for Snoop despite the fact his confession clearly gave them enough evidence to have him arrested for at least pandering, if not pimping or sex trafficking.

Again, there is no clause in the law that "giving the money back" voids the crime itself.  So Martha Stewart dancing with this confessed, and unrepentant, sex trafficker is so offensive words can't even explain.  Meaning that I am wanting you to know that not only am I going to be boycotting any Martha Stewart show, product, and service, but also any company who carries any of her shows and/or products - and I will be sending out an announcement to our 190,000 social media subscribers/members of Sex Workers Anonymous to join us in a boycott of Martha Stewart for associating herself with this trafficker.

I understood when Martha Stewart went to jail for insider trading because I figured it was just a "misunderstanding".  Now in light of this partnership with Snoop Dogg - I can't help but look upon her in a whole other light.  Do not tell me women are safe anywhere near Martha being now who she wants to associate herself with - a confessed and unrepentant sex trafficker who has been banned in two countries for drug trafficking and I have yet to see a medical marijuana card on him either.  http://time.com/3821236/snoop-dogg-eaze-marijuana-delivery/  Combined with his football league - I would imagine the delivery service has no shortage of people filling out help wanted applications.  http://www.foxla.com/entertainment/142406430-story

Both of you by the way have enough visibility of the young women in this country to be warning them about this STD epidemic, as well as the exploding sex trafficking problem we're encountering now because of the impact the internet has had on this issue but instead of doing this and saving lives - you're dancing on VH1 together?

I'm sorry but I'm boycotting Martha now and will be sending out this letter to all of her sponsors, producers, and stores which carry her products as well as any social organizations she may be connected to who are partnering her around young women.

Martha appearing with Snoop in this manner makes him appear "harmless" like a fuzzy puppy.  The man now owns a medical marijuana delivery service, he hangs out socially with Rick "Freeway" Ross, and again he's completely unrepentant about the damage he did to young women during this pimp revival as shown by not only his confession in Rolling Stone- but also his lack of any apology for what transpired.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLWgXXr9Vj8

Let's take a look at the effect this is even having on P. Diddy.  Snoop's son is playing football at UCLA.  The same team where P. Diddy was arrested for attacking a coach supposedly of that team whose son is on the same team.  http://www.tmz.com/2015/06/22/diddy-arrested-fight-ucla-football-coach-justin/

So we have someone who has been charged with murder, flaunted being in warrant by appearing at a music awards show rather than turning himself in, hanging out with the like's of Rick "Freeway" Ross who recently was pulled over with over $100,000 in cash in his car supposedly to "buy real estate", and P. Diddy, who assaults football coaches, engaging in activities designed to clearly attract in young people - all while again being a confessed and unrepentant sex trafficker and you're dancing with him Martha like this is all one big joke?  http://www.laweekly.com/news/do-cops-think-ex-crack-king-freeway-ricky-ross-is-a-new-prince-of-pot-6214877

So you have a nice day .   I'm off to organize a boycott that has now expanded from Snoop to Martha Stewart.  On behalf of the victims of this "revival fantasy tour" of Snoop's, I find the two of you dancing as you are in that commercial completely taunting these victims about how they were held captive through intimidation, raped, kidnapped, trafficked, drugged, beaten, and otherwise outright treated like animals, for how not only NOTHING has been done to anyone involved, BUT NOW YOU TWO ARE DANCING TOGETHER?

Certainly you have enough PR people Martha to be aware of this confession.  SHAME ON YOU.  SHAME on the prosecutors who want to grandstand for the election but still haven't issued one warrant against him despite this written confession and the fact there are numerous witnesses who would come forward if they thought they wouldn't be ripped apart by the fans of Snoop's music and the NFL - who all have a history if you think about it of a lot of aggression, if not outright violence and even murder.

It's like you're dancing with Hitler Martha and on behalf of the young women in this country - again SHAME on all of you who are acting like this is not an issue.

TRIPLE SHAME on VH1 for claiming to "care about sex trafficking" while putting on this show.

It's OFFENSIVE AND IN DOWNRIGHT BAD TASTE!!! I say that because when I called the Pistachio Growers Board after seeing him in a commercial for the nut - when they learned about his confession in Rolling Stone they at least said they would "pull the ad" which I didn't see it again after that in fact.  

So Martha, you and VH1 have less taste than nut growers!

(PS - To Snoop and his entourage - if you think sending in "influencers" connected to Live Nation to try and slander me, as well as sending in others to try and stalk and threaten me online starting the minute I announced the boycott on Snoop after this confession, a company who also not so coincidentally in my opinion also manage Charlie Sheen, through straw groups such as Cupcake Girls who use their nonprofit status to launder your bribe money to try and get us to back down - we know the game so think again.  An apology to the victims is all we've asked.  It's a lot cheaper to think about an apology and an "amends" rather than the money you've spent trying to run us out of Dodge and silence us.  If pimps in the 1980's couldn't silence me over the last 30 years - your tactics won't do the job either.  We're not going anywhere!  Especially not as long as these victims of crimes such as yours and Charlies are going unprosecuted by law enforcement.  

Which reminds me - isn't it a crime to knowingly expose someone to HIV/AIDS? Kamala - why no arrest against Charlie considering he's even threatened to pay $25,000 to whack a witness?  You want to claim you care about these victims?  PROVE IT.  Your office STILL hasn't called to speak to the victims we told you have contacted us for help about these situations in how many years now?  No - you announced your fund raiser to run for Senate when we pushed on the very issue that if you had addressed it when we first came to you - then the story about Celeste Guap might not have hit.  But then you were having to contend with Joohon David Lee though weren't you?  Now remind me again how you dealt with what he did?  Tell me about it while he's driving a limo in Las Vegas about how you're "throwing the book" at him for what he did while in office for Homeland Security, ICE and the anti-trafficking task force?)
