LETTER SENT TO CONTRA COSTA COUNTY INCLUDING POLICE ACADEMY

Dear Contra Costa County:
We need to talk.  When I was in this "Celeste Guap"s" same shoes myself back in 1984, and the LAPD was trying to also silence me about what I knew about police involvement in sex trafficking, I don't mean having sex with underage hookers, but I mean actual involvement in domestic sex trafficking - one of the places they sent me during my harassment and trying to "frame" me somehow, someway, for a conviction of some kind - was to ship me off to Contra Costa County on a fake charge there.  
So the kinds of things that has been going on with people like Celeste has been going on at least THIRTY FOUR YEARS now by my count.  Let me ask you something - if you are a minority juvenile Hispanic female living in this part of the country and a male uniformed cop just simply "asks" you for sex while your mother is a 911 operator whose very job depends upon her continuing to be in the "good graces" of the police - tell me …

LETTER TO NANCY O'MALLEY AND LIBBY SCHAAF

Dear Nancy and Libby:

Do you know WHY I was asked to come help train drug treatment staff in Los Angeles county in the early 1990's?  Why Dr. James Crossen who founded the Addiction Studies program at Mission College and the National Association on Sexual Addiction came to me to develop a specialized training for staff of drug treatment programs?

So prostitutes started flooding into the treatment programs and counselors' chairs.  Onl…

Re:         Celeste Guap
Dear Ms. O’Malley:
I’m sure you remember me.  I’m the one who has been trying for oh a few years now to get you to talk to me about the very situations surrounding Celeste Guap, only to have you repeatedly ignore me. If you saw one article, an investigator said she’s connected to a case that’s “been going on for ten years now”.  That it is, and also why I’ve been trying to speak to you for some time now.  Only you told me you “didn’t have room” to speak to me about the issues our members were presenting to me, as well as calls we were getting on the hotline.  All my requests to speak to you directly were also ignored.   People wonder why I send “long letters” Nancy – maybe it’s because I can’t get anyone to pick up a phone.
The problem with “ignoring” me however is that instead of the problems going away, they j…
