POLARIS FORUM AND GIVING UP YOUR 5TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS

Has everyone forgot a little detail called the 5th amendment in this country?  

First of all, prostitution in the USA everywhere but a few tiny counties in Nevada is ILLEGAL.  Forced or not, many of the things sex trafficking victims are forced to do are ILLEGAL.  Even if it's a matter of unreported earnings to the IRS - we're still talking a possible criminal charge here could be over one's head.

Now unless that survivor has gone completely through the legal system and it's been determined by their lawyers there aren't any possible ways they can have a case come up on them in the future, or that they may be called upon to become an "informant" in an ongoing case, there are good sound solid reasons why a survivor would want to remain "anonymous" about who they are and what they've experienced.

Do I have to remind people what happened to Celeste Guap?  She wasn't supposedly a "criminal" but a "victim".  She spoke up in the media about being a survivor and next thing she knows she's being shuttled off to a treatment center in Florida SUPPOSEDLY to "help" her.  Only next thing she knows there's a guard there claiming she was assaulted and sexually approached by Celeste and she's carted off on a $300,000 bail.  During the time she was being held, because who has $300,000 bail, the authorities say she was "offered a deal".  Anyone who has been in her shoes knows what that means - it means drop your case against the 30 plus cops who sexually raped you while a minor, and who sexually trafficked you while cops and even Chief of Police, or we'll throw you in jail!  

Celeste Guap illustrates the dangers of coming forward about being a survivor without having FIRST had proper legal council.  Hence one of the very reasons why we formed our program as www.sexworkersanonymous.com

It's why we don't ask you your name when you call our hotline, and we'll even tell you NOT to tell us your name.  Unlike Polaris, we don't collect your IP address either which is way more revealing than a name by the way.

Coming forward openly as a survivor REQUIRES you understand your 5th amendment rights before doing so.  Even if you haven't committed one crime unanswered for in the past - if you even know people the police want to build a case upon you're in danger of issues as Celeste Guap's case illustrates beautifully.  She steps up to reveal she's a victim without having had proper legal council first and look at what happened to her!  This doesn't even TOUCH upon if you might have something to say someone is worried you MIGHT say.  I say this because I spent the first year after I was first arrested dodging bullets from people who were worried about what I MIGHT  say to the cops despite my assurances I wasn't going to say anything.  Look at Jeane Palfrey for example who I believe was murdered by people who didn't want their names revealed during the ethics hearing she was going to testify at.

I for example did not appear on any media until I had consulted with an attorney licensed in the state I was in who advised me that any statutes on anything I was involved with had tolled, and that I could not be compelled by virtue of being on probation, or any thing else hanging over my head law enforcement used to try and get me to become an informant back in my day.

I had the LAPD arrest my mother and threaten me with charging her, and even possibly charging my grandmother, with felony pimping if I did not agree to "snitch" on other people as an informant to build their cases for them.  In my case, my mother said to the prosecutor "we're not snitches" and we took our lumps.  But that was our decision to make.  The point remains that I have experienced law enforcement manufacturing crazy accusations against me to try and force me to become an informant for them.

I say "crazy" because the case they laid on my mother was based on a photograph of me handing her a $20 bill for a bucket of KFC chicken.  Under the law it does state the "receipt of money from a prostitute" constitutes a felony pimping charge.  Yes it would have had to have been proved I was a prostitute.  But over the years I've seen this is a very common tactic of law enforcement - to charge, or threaten to charge, one's family members with a crime in order to compel you do become an informant for them, or plead guilty to something yourself.

Now with my mom, to plead not guilty would mean I'd still be looking at a very expensive case where I'd have to hire an attorney to defend her, my grandmother (who was 70 at the time) and myself.  As it was the government took everything I owned away from me and then said I had to "prove where I got the money from" to buy those items before they'd give anything back.  Since most of everything was gifts I had no way of proving anything without dragging other people into the equation which was further what the cops wanted - to know information on who was providing me with such expensive gifts.  All done to try and force me to become an "informant" for them.

NOW NOWHERE in this invitation do I see any caution about being careful to protect one's 5th amendment rights to "not incriminate themselves" in any fashion but I do see that it's asking for "only survivors" to step up to the plate here.  The lack of acknowledgement that one needs to be sure in doing so they are not incriminating themselves in some fashion not even being an issue in this invitation tells me there's either one or both of a serious problem here - either the fact this isn't being run by survivors who would understand this is an issue OR the fact they are partners with people actively seeking information such as Palantir Technologies, Google, and Merck who are "partners" now with Polaris is a deliberate move here.

So which is it Polaris?  Why is there no warning or caution here about anything anyone who might participate in this forum being advised to consult with an attorney before doing such a forum to ensure they aren't going to say something which could incriminate them for past actions?  Was this a deliberate omission or just you don't have a friggin clue what being a survivor in America truly means?

You're asking survivors to risk incarceration, legal prosecution, even possibly someone deciding they're a risk and ordering a contract out on them by asking them to identify as a survivor at this forum.  I see no cautions about anything in this invitation about the dangers of identifying with you as a survivor.  Not even just with you - but even over phone and internet lines which can be hacked by traffickers targeting your servers.

So why is that Polaris?


National Human Trafficking Hotline

Azurdee,
The National Human Trafficking Hotline is first and foremost a survivor hotline -- it belongs to survivors and the community-at-large that it seeks to serve. It is important, therefore, that survivor voices, needs, concerns, expertise, and values always be at the heart of our work. 
In 2017, our commitment to engage, include, and empower survivors in our work will include quarterly open forums for survivors to call in, ask questions, give suggestions, and share feedback about the Hotline.
Survivor input will drive the overall content and agenda of these calls moving forward, but the first call will focus on giving an overview of the National Human Trafficking Hotline, its operations and protocols, its current capacity and constraints, an introduction to our staff and the training they receive, and then we will open the floor to share questions and feedback on these topics. Questions can be submitted in advance by replying to this email or through the GoTo Meeting chat function during the call. Any question that we do not have time to answer will be answered in a follow up email.
The first of these conference calls will take place on March 7, 2017 at 3:30 p.m. EST. ALL survivors are welcome and encouraged to participate, so please spread the word throughout your networks. We ask that only survivors of human trafficking participate in the call.
Please RSVP to this invite no later than March 3, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. EST.
We greatly look forward to hearing from all of you.
Sincerely,
Lara Powers and the National Human Trafficking Hotline staff

WHY THEY'RE REALLY SHUTTING DOWN BACKPAGE

http://www.backpage.com/statements/Children-of-the-Night-Statement.pdf

I came across this and after reading it my first reaction was "ditto".

Lois Lee had created "Children of the Night" in 1979.  I was 19 years old then and living in the same city as Lois.  I witnessed her creation of that program from her tiny apartment to the program it is today literally from the day it was just an idea Lois had.

I've spoken a few times about what Los Angeles was like in 1979.  If you know what it was like back then - then you know why Lois felt compelled to do what she did to launch her program.  I was witnessing the same war zone Lois was - and I agree - this was a war zone that existed long before Backpage or Craigslist ever existed.

I was actually right on the border of being one of Lois' clients.  I say that because I ran away from home when I was 13 years old myself in 1973.  Like so many youth who run away, I was being sexually abused by my father while being physically abused by my mother   At 13 years old, I was 5'4" tall, 109 pounds, and my measurements were literally 36C-26-36.  I ski'd just about every weekend while during the week.  I belonged to a school swim team so my body was very tight and mature looking for someone so young.

I mention this because when I ran away I wasn't going to wind up sleeping in some dumpster or alley somewhere.  There was this strip club I remember not far from my school called the "Dog Patch".  The owner wasn't very picky about checking the ID of young girls who would audition for them.  So on the very first day of my runaway story, I checked myself into a motel room next to the "Dog Patch".  Growing up watching women like Mae West, reading books like "The Happy Hooker", and listening to songs on the radio like "The Pill" sung by Loretta Lynn - I knew where I was going to be as a runaway kid.  That was working at the Dog Patch, living in the motel next door, dropping out of school and turning tricks with men old enough to be my grandfather.

My mother worked as a court reporter at the Los Angeles Juvenile Court.  I took a tour with her once of where the kids in juvenile hall were kept.   Through my mom's work, I saw what the group homes looked like as well.  One day trying "scare me silly" so I wouldn't cause any more problems at school - she took me to see where the other teens were incarcerated, as well as the runaway shelters.  Trust me - the world she showed me of where most kids wound up was light years away from where I was that first day of my runaway teen career in the  motel next to the Dog Patch.

I saw girls like me in my mom's juvenile court job.  Grown men who were teachers, social workers, and even judge's didn't view girls like me as "kids".  They were too busy starring at our tits.  I would see the boys and girls who were the type to be targeted by sexual predators.  If you threw in the mix this kid was also stripping or involved in prostitution - then every predators for MILES would be sniffing them out like a dog for the one reason that if you attack a virgin that's a student or a housewife - you will bring down the wrath of God and everyone in this country on you.  However, if you're a prostitute - then the system wouldn't lift a finger to help you back then.  You were considered "asking" for it.  With me - the fact I had big boobs meant I was "asking for it".

During the 1970's period before Lois started Children of the Night - these two cousins were pimps.  They started out their murdering spree that went down in history as pimps.  They were kidnapping women right off the streets.  Girls walking to the corner store or on their way to school or a girlfriend's house were thrown into these guy's car.  Then taken to a location where they were beaten, raped and tortured.

Then after they got bored with their victim and wanted to escalate the terror in them even more - they would take them to a motel room in the red light districts.  Forcing them at first with handcuffs to stay in the room, they'd bring the tricks in from the neighborhood to have sex with them and then also keep the money.  After some time at this, the handcuffs were taken off and then psychological bonds were used to keep them so afraid they wouldn't try to leave the room.

More tricks would be brought in this time.  After a few days the women would get so saturated with fear they'd decide to try the door to their freedom.  They'd then escape and go to the police but the police wouldn't lift a finger after hearing their story.  Why?  Because they had been branded "prostitute" by what these cousins did to them.  It was done deliberately to discredit the word of their victims.  The same rule applies believe it or not to children.  ESPECIALLY back in the 1970's as to be the brewing pot for what went into Lois creating Children of the Night.

Here look at this image of a child - very innocent looking right?

But what if the juvenile looks like this:
Image result for teen prostitute

Because the above is a photo of a woman who was being traded for money while a juvenile.  Now if she were to cry "rape" - what do you think a lot of people's reaction was back in the 1970's?  I don't mean by today's standards - I mean by back then standards?

The film "Frozen Ground" is the most accurate portrayal in film of how we were treated by the legal system back in the 1970's.   Because this woman was a "prostitute" when she went to the police saying she had been drugged, kidnapped, chained up in this guy's basement, then drug out to an island where he tried to shoot her for sport - the police "round filed" her complaint and wouldn't even search the guy's house.  Why?  Because she was a "prostitute" and in the eyes of the law back in the 1970's that meant "criminal" and "worthless".

So if a kid was being sexually abused at home and therefore probably ran away to escape this abuse, and then that same child is put into the foster care system or the juvenile detention system - this means every predator within range is going to hone in on that particular child because they offer them something more important than sexual pleasure - and that's immunity!

I myself thought about turning to Children of the Night when I was trapped within the sex industry myself - but I was over 18 years old at the time.  The family who was trafficking me only targeted women over 18 years old to avoid any problems connected to messing with a juvenile.  Because believe me people don't care about you once you turn 18 years old - then or now.  Even now reporters will tell me "don't you have a juvenile we can talk to?"  because they claim "our readers don't want to hear about nor care about what happens to adults".  Well maybe that attitude is shaped by the press who only puts that in front of them TO care about!

But there was nothing for an adult to turn to for help.  I saw how Lois had a safe place for kids to run to and I realized there was no where for an adult like myself to run to.  So I created it.  I took a warehouse I had once used as an incall location and converted it into what is now known as the first safe house for adults in America.

My reward?  I got arrested and accused of "running a brothel" out of it.  You can read about it at www.hightechmadam.com   So when I got my case over and dealt with I realized I needed to create an "outpatient" program where I couldn't be arrested like that ever again.  Which meant a hotline had to be set up.  Lois had the Children of the Night hotline specifically targeting the type of kids she wanted to target.  Since there was no such hotline for adults - I had to start one also.  So in many ways I modeled what I saw Lois doing for kids and adapted it to adults.  This meant Prostitutes Anonymous was born in 1987.

Lois is right - many juveniles and people who pimp juveniles would advertise in Backpage.  However, ADULT traffickers operate differently much of the time from how juveniles operate.  People make false assumptions here what trafficking vs. prostitution is.  Yes adult women wanting to prostitute themselves used Craigslist and Backpage.  So yes people wanting to think about quitting prostitution "one day" would be on those sites.

But those were "prostitutes" - NOT "trafficking victims".  The adult "trafficking victims" I was finding were in underground brothels, legal brothels, massage parlors, strip clubs.  Okay here's an example of ADULT sex trafficking and where we would also target our efforts to locate and help said victims - look at the case of the DEA owned strip club in New Jersey:

https://www.nytimes.com/2016/06/10/nyregion/2-dea-workers-convicted-over-ownership-of-strip-club-in-new-jersey.html?_r=0  Now this club was more than just owned by DEA agents.  Take a look at how this arrest went down.  It went down because some people had complained to a senator about DEA agents who were partying with Columbian drug lords who were so comfortable with those same drug lords they were sleeping with prostitutes at a party and putting down their guns to be able to enjoy those prostitutes.

It was because of an investigation into THIS accusation https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/report-dea-agents-had-sex-parties-with-prostitutes-hired-by-drug-cartels/2015/03/26/adb2d53e-d3bd-11e4-8fce-3941fc548f1c_story.html?utm_term=.05af24442ebd   which uncovered this club here in the states owned by some of those same agents.  Agents who were going over to Columbia and partying with drug lords.

Why?  The dancers at this club were illegal aliens from Columbia.  I want people to hear me on this because I keep hearing a strange SEPARATION in the media, and therefore the public's, mind when it comes to the issue of illegal aliens in this country and sex trafficking victims.  Because these women were in this country illegally - they were afraid to go to any of the authorities.

Also understand these women weren't just afraid of the authorities because of the risk of being deported.  To them that would mean "escape" right?  No it didn't.  It would mean deporting them back to Columbia into the hands of the same drug Cartel these agents were so buddy buddy with.  Meaning they'd just be drug right back right?  Well here's the thing - if during the deportation process they were to open their mouth about those DEA agents owning that club, and then they were delivered right back into their hands on the other end in Columbia - it also means these women would know they needed to keep their mouth shut.

Well they just get offered "witness protection" right?  Not when their whole family is right back in Columbia where the Cartel knows exactly where they are.  We're talking Pablo Escobar country here folks.  We're talking a country where Pablo, a drug lord, built his own jail with his own personal escape hatch!  Do you think then that same country could protect a woman's family from these same drug lords?

I want people to understand Lois was dealing with juveniles in Backpage who needed help.  However, when it comes to the type of person WE'RE helping on an adult level - that's not who our "target demographic" is.  Yes we get calls from people who would advertise on Backpage they wanted to quit prostitution.  But 9 out of 10 times that person would only be doing it for the money.  They lost their job, got their hours at that job cut, the economy is bad, they have a drug problem, or whatever the reason was.  With them you help them find better paying work and they're out of prostitution.  Easy peasey.

But for an adult sex trafficking victim I want you to really digest what I'm saying here we were dealing with.  The women at this same club COULD NOT BE RESCUED.  Why do you think they didn't just leave the club?  No one had to put chains around their ankles and strap them to the bar to prevent them from leaving. Why?  Because the minute they would run a phone call would go out and their family back in Columbia would be slaughtered.

Meaning you could put an anti-trafficking program for adults right next to this same strip club and it's going to be empty.  You can't go in and "rescue" someone in this type of situation either because you're then triggering a death warrant on their family back home.   Now don't you think these DEA agents also knew all the local cops?  The local judges?  The local politicians?  The local Secret Service also remember?  http://nypost.com/2014/10/09/secret-service-sex-scandal-investigator-was-asked-to-withhold-evidence/

I'm explaining to you why when dealing with adult sex trafficking we're talking a different thing completely from what someone like Lois is dealing with about juveniles.  I want you to just for a moment put yourself into the shoes of one of these Colombian women working at this DEA owned strip club.  EVERY DAY you see in this club not only other DEA agents, but SECRET SERVICE agents.  Meaning again by association you're also going to see some local police, politicians, sheriff's, private investigators, judges, etc.  Just like you see in the Pennsylvania case - http://www.phillymag.com/news/2016/03/24/justice-michael-eakin-fined-over-porngate/

Seriously, this is not limited to one NJ strip club.     But let's take those women at that club - could I call up the local trafficking task force to help these women?  Here is the NJ human trafficking task force - http://www.nj.gov/oag/dcj/humantrafficking/  Now what is the NJ trafficking task force doing now?  "Teaching teachers how to mobilize".  Okay I don't think there's a lot of school teachers who would be in that strip club looking for victims - so can anyone say "misdirect attention"?

Let's look at who are some of the "liasons" with this trafficking task force shall we? http://www.nj.gov/oag/dcj/humantrafficking/liaisons.html  Notice who there's a lot of on this page?  Detectives.

My grandmother used to have a saying about "the fox shouldn't be guarding the chicken coop".  Follow the logic here - in Columbia Pablo became a member of Congress.  He was able to help write legislation of that country to prevent extradition.  He was even able to murder two people in the prison he was allowed to build for himself.  So let me ask you something - do you really think that this type of system isn't now operating with respect to sex trafficking as drug trafficking?  In Columbia - the Cartel have control over the phone systems.  You call to report something to the police - and within five minutes you have assassinations at your doorstep wiping you out for just making the report.

So within that same logic - do you really think those women could call either the local police or the local trafficking task force for help?  So why are those cops there?  They're there because the people who are the traffickers can then trace every call coming in about sex trafficking victims so they can do what?  "Misdirect" them away from their own victims just as we've seen with the Celeste Guap case in Oakland, California.  Not a whole coast away but PART OF THE SAME NETWORK.

http://abc7news.com/news/woman-at-center-of-opd-sex-scandal-offered-deal-in-florida-attack/1508429/  Now if you follow my blog at all - you'll know that I said Celeste was deliberately arrested, and then deliberately held on a $300,000 bail for what reason?  I told you she was being held on a high bail to not only stop her from speaking to the press which she has not done since Florida by the way - but also that while she was in custody in Florida I told you she would be having people all over her convincing her to shut up about what she went through.

But I want you to trace HOW Celeste got "offered a deal".  She was taken by the Redmond POLICE who got ahold of her through the Office of Victim Services.  Who referred her to the Redmond Police  NOT to Sex Workers Anonymous.  In fact, Nancy O'Malley, the Alameda prosecutor's office, kept Celeste away from us.  When I tried to enlist her office's help to speak to Celeste I was told "no we're handling it".  Yeah they were.  They "handled" her right onto a plane to get her into Florida where she could then be set up on a police charge there.  Why there?  So no one would say it had anything to do with Oakland is why.  Simple.

Note the article here says she was "offered a deal".  No folks - that's not what it's called.  I've been in Celeste's shoes remember?  Only when I was held in 1984 on a $50,000 bail myself - I was not "offered a deal".  That's a nice way of saying I was having my life threatened if I didn't do what they wanted me to do and also to keep my mouth shut.  That's why you won't see any interviews with me and the press after my 1984 arrest until I pop up again in 1987 announcing our hotline and program have been launched.

Now while Celeste did advertise her prostitution services on sites like Backpage and Facebook - when it came to sex trafficking that wasn't who was trafficking her.  Celeste only advertised on Backpage - she wasn't trafficked by Backpage.  But the men in the Oakland sex trafficking task forces have admitted to now having kept her away from task force operations in order she not be offered help and to cover up their own asses.

Which is what I'm trying to explain here - the traffickers in America are connected to the anti-trafficking task forces.  Our adult victims can't call the police for help.  Meaning the National Trafficking Hotline is useless for a sex trafficking victim on American soil.  Let's take a look at what they have listed for help in New Jersey shall we?  https://humantraffickinghotline.org/training-resources/referral-directory

Okay we have a group in Maryland, a Catholic Church, family services, social services for youth, the city bar association (lawyers), Courtney's house is a residential program for women who were mostly street walkers, an Allentown, PA group, about four more youth groups while these were adult women stripping in that NJ club, some religious programs, a Maryland program, another Pennsylvania program, a couple of more youth programs, a program in Virginia - I mean is anyone beginning to see what's going on here with the joke being on us?

You're a NJ based illegal alien from Columbia who was brought into this country illegally so you could work for this DEA owned strip club, a club where you're seeing all the local law enforcement including the Secret Service agents are coming into this club to party with you, and the local Human Trafficking Hotline is a list of more people who know these cops, the National Trafficking Hotline if you get the guts to call them for help refer you to a bunch of programs that either don't work with adults, work with Asian's, or are based in a completely different state.  If you go into one of these shelters they have listed - the owners and people who staff these programs are interacting with law enforcement daily.

Meaning the guys who own this strip club know who everyone is in the local anti-trafficking scene EXCEPT  - who do you NOT see listed in either the NJ National Trafficking Hotline NOR the NJ Human Trafficking Task Force?  I'll tell you two names not found on either of those directories right now - Children of the Night for juvenile victims and Sex Workers Anonymous for adult victims.

Is anyone getting the picture yet here of who it is we're fighting with respect to saving sex trafficking victims on American soil?  Now I ask you - can we take one of these women to one of these programs or shelters - or anywhere for that matter knowing that if we take them somewhere not only are we going to get all of these law enforcement offices coming after us trying to retrieve and silence that victim (as they did with Celeste - with Celeste they stepped inbetween SWA and her, and they had her in a cop car going to Florida to also get her away from us and then "offered her a deal" which has resulted in her not speaking to the press anymore about her connections with local cops and the trafficking task force, and she's still hooking on Facebook last time I looked), but further we know the Columbian's will have someone sent out to murder her whole family back in Columbia.

I mean are you getting the picture here why we don't send in teams of SWA members into strip clubs to do "outreach" for one thing?  That we don't go in there and say "come with us and we'll rescue you" because we know that will only trigger harm to come to her family.

There's no point in putting her into some residential program like Courtney's House or FAIR Girls or any of those types of programs because those guys not only know right where they all are, but they're also able to go walking right into the place to "pull them out for questioning", and I'd like you to note how not ONE of these Columbia strippers (if you want to call them that because of being forced to work as a stripper) is speaking about their trafficking ordeal at the local churches, the local news, nor at any of these anti-trafficking luncheon fund raisers they put on where they trot out some victim to tell horror stories to loosen purse strings.

I also want you to see that shutting down Backpage doesn't have one single thing to do with this type of victim either EXCEPT to shut down the victims' ability to find out about HELP.  Again please look at how everything in the NJ anti-trafficking arena does not include any information on Children of the Night nor SWA.  However, Lois said she can advertise Children of the Night on Backpage and reach out information to those juveniles who are on there.  Also, SWA can put out ads for help on Backpage.

So let's just take a hypothetical question here - if these people wanted to block victims from leaving so badly as to threaten their family back home with murder if they left - then isn't it also possible they don't want these victims to know about two groups who can actually get them out of there?  Now if you wanted to keep that information out of the victims' hands as to where they could go for help - would you not then shut down the way we can reach them?  Wouldn't you want Backpage shut down for the fact WE here at SWA and Lois at CON can reach the eyes of their victims and know they can call us for help that will work?  Wouldn't you also want those victims to have useless phone numbers?  Come on - you're a victim who can barely speak English and you start calling all those numbers who are on the task force page or the National Trafficking Hotline's resource list and by the end of the day you're going to think "there's no way out there for me"?

In other words, the people who want Backpage down are the traffickers themselves who don't want word of how they can call and get some REAL help to reach the victims eyes and ears.  I mean how else do you explain the system that's being used here to keep victims from finding out about CON for juveniles and SWA for adults?  They sure as heck keep us out of their task forces and off their resource listings.

How else do you explain the rise of people like Melissa Woodward?  Take a real good look at what someone came to me about a few days ago with respect to her "trafficking work" - https://www.facebook.com/gray.castle.52  There's more information on that page about it.  Shanna has described to me a whole sphere of influence which surrounded Melissa where not only was money donated to a fake rescue, the stories about rescues were fake, there was no safe house, and on and on about how even the FBI "vouched" for this woman.  Yes there was a whole sphere of people who supported each other and made it appear to outsiders that they were "fighting sex trafficking' while in reality not only spinning their wheels but also being kept out of helping groups like ours who are actually in there getting those types of victims out and to safety.

I want you to think about what it would take to actually get a victim out of this type of situation I'm describing to you.  Celeste Guap for example has already had at least 30 Oakland police officers, a Chief of Police, involved and enabling her trafficking.  Blocking her from help while also taking good honest sincere people who want to help these victims off on wild goose chases.  But she also has family in Nicaragua  and her mother works as a 911 operator.   If you want to remove Celeste - you also have to get her family away from these people.  Which in Celeste's case would mean her mother quitting her job and going somewhere else where she can't be found by people with badges.  Which is where exactly?

Well the answer to that is not only very hard to explain but I'm not going to explain how we do what we do anywhere online and tip off the traffickers to our tactics, people, partnerships, resources, etc.   While not explaining I can explain this - it's not as simple as walking into a massage parlor, a strip club or a street corner and saying "come with me and I'll rescue you from this".

Because if you don't address what it is that traffickers are using to put those invisible chains on their victims to hold them there in the first place - then they're going to do what?  You got it - go right back.  Which is why people working in corrections, social services, the courts, the police, etc., all say is frustrating them about this community - they "always go back".  

Let's take the hypothetical route here - you take one of these women who was in this DEA owned strip club and you roll out the red carpet of resources to them to help them stay in this country, find work, and even offer them personally protection from retaliation - but you don't address the fact they have family back in Columbia who is probably going to be murdered if that victim doesn't get her ass back up on that stage working again - and what is she going to do?  Go work as McDonald's knowing that job means her whole family is going to be massacred?  I don't think so.  She's going to go back and try and keep everyone happy and alive.  Leaving a bunch of frustrated cops and social workers saying "I don't know why she wouldn't get help".  Which is what I'm saying here - the "help" being offered her isn't being designed to be what she needs.

Why?  Because the very people who need to be designing these programs, people like us who understand what real adult victims of sex trafficking needs in order to be able to break free - are being kept out of the designing of said programs and even the training of staff working with said victims.  Including the very Office of Victim Services who thought putting Celeste Guap on a plane to Florida was "help" when in reality it was assisting the traffickers in silencing her.  

You also have to address how it is that traffickers can come and get their victims back if they don't come back voluntarily.  Even how they're taken over even the training in this field to further mislead people away from who they are, how they operate, and also to facilitate their trafficking work.  

I mean look at Joohoon David Lee.  There was a huge campaign that hit Las Vegas where a bunch of people were put together to devise a system to train airport workers how to spot victims.  Three guesses as to who was not invited to be on that group?

You got it - we were shut out of that group.  Now when this whole training was created to teach airport workers how to spot sex trafficking - do you think there was one word in that training on what to do if you suspected a business colleague?  Let me explain - Joohoon David Lee was with Homeland Security, Immigration and the trafficking task forces of CA, NV and AZ.  

Now using his position, his badge, and the government's money Lee would fly over to China to pick up a victim.  Then using his badge he would take this victim right past the very system he had a hand in creating - a training which did not alert anyone at LAX what to do if they suspected someone like him was trafficking victims right past them.  

Which is what he did - he walked victims right past those stop points and checks into this country illegally.  If he was caught - well "he was just questioning a victim" because of his trafficking work.

I've spoken to one of the men who was involved in creating that bogus training.  He tells me he was brought over from Norway!  So a guy from Norway is flown into the USA to work on a training module for LAX workers of American victims on American soil?   

Couldn't be they were deliberately getting well meaning sincere people who wanted to really help victims and stuck them on a bogus committee so the wrong training could be provided which covers their ass and shuts down their competitors' right?  https://www.facebook.com/Onlyblueshies

Since Joohoon was arrested, and since men like Rob have realized they were being duped into creating security for American airports that actually ASSISTED traffickers like Joohoon - they've been trying to get people coordinated back again to try and create relevant updated training which would.  

Why is it so hard?  Because what Joohoon did wasn't technically illegal - he could not be charged with sex trafficking because according to Daniel Bogden - there ARE NO LAWS against what he did to his victims.  He not only flew victims over to the states on the government's Homeland Security dime, then used his ICE  connections to get them into this country without proper papers, but he further made it appear he was "fighting sex trafficking" while going after a completely innocent "scape goat" family!  http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/las-vegas-restaurateur-says-former-fed-manufactured-criminal-case-against-him

In fact, if Joohoon has a pension - he'll get to keep it after what he did.  As it is now he's driving a limo for CLS Limo owned by Charles Horky who has been convicted now of sex trafficking.  Boy we really come down hard on someone using our government's resources and offices to facilitate sex trafficking don't we?  

If he can't be charged with sex trafficking because he did the trafficking using government money on the government dime and therefore hes immune from being prosecuted about this - he then keeps his pension.  I want you to imagine you're a Chinese woman being taken into this country illegally by a man like Joohoon - and you can see why they might want to break down the one line of communications that does exist in the sex industry that would actually give one of these victims a useful phone number to call that would actually help them (and not just give an illusion to outsiders that help is actually available with these bogus groups - I mean how is social services or an Asian group going to help a Columbian stripper who is here in this country illegally with her whole family back home being threatened if she steps out of line?"

You can see we're not able to get out our phone number to victims using the National Trafficking Hotline nor the Human Trafficking Task Force in NJ - so how do we reach victims who need our help?  
If you made a list of every blog or site that those in the sex industry used to keep in communication with each like a "trade journal" you'd find they've all been shut down because of allegations of sex trafficking.  Backpage for one.  The Erotic Review.  Redbook, Rentboy, and the list goes on.  In other words, I propose Backpage is being attacked BECAUSE they're assisting Lois with finding juvenile sex trafficking victims, and BECAUSE I can put up an ad for Sex Workers Anonymous on their site and actually reach the eyes of adults who need our help also.  

Meaning I say the shutting down and attacks upon Backpage are NOT about "fighting sex trafficking" but in fact are tools of the traffickers being used to further entrap their victims.  Communication is one of the tools all predators use to disempower their victims.  I was kept isolated as a kid by my dad who didn't want anyone to find out what he was up to me with when we were alone.  You look at how the plantation owners were able to maintain control while being grossly outnumbered when it came to manpower.   They stopped the slaves from READING.  This is why many slaves resorted to singing - it was a way to communicate right under the slave owner's nose.

Hiring people who you think are so stupid they won't figure out what you're really up to was something even Kathryn Bolkovac has spoken about in her book/movie on the issue of sex trafficking the "Whistle Blower".  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/9041974/What-the-UN-Doesnt-Want-You-to-Know.html

The company who hired her out of Nebraska of all places was Dynocorp.  They took her to a job overseas where all the people they hired would have a blind eye to the sex trafficking that was going on.  In her case, it backfired and she came home and wrote her book which became the movie "Whistle Blower".  

I bring up Dynocorp because I've seen many of their tactics which includes that of an "influencer".  I had a woman once appear out of nowhere.  Didn't know her from Adam.  She starts attacking me like a full-time job.  She was literally coming after me for 8 hours a day five days a week.  One of our SWA members dug into her online profile a bit and came back showing me a private message conversation between her and Dynocorp where they were sharing information with her about me which she could used for the next attack the next week  Dynocorp of course wanting me to jump out of the arena because if a victim knows they can call us for help - they can get out.  That's also why they keep shoving out into the public eye all these phony groups like Melissa Woodward!

If you want to know what an alcoholic is and how to get sober - you talk to Bill Wilson.  You want to know what adult sex trafficking is?  Talk to Jody Williams - founder of Prostitutes Anonymous now known as Sex Workers Anonymous 30 years and 500,000 plus one calls older.  If someone is telling you they're "helping sex trafficking victims" I don't care if they have 1000 friends.  There's something wrong with what's going on if you look around and don't see us or Children of the Night involved.  
Magicians do their magic using diversion, distraction, misdirecting - anything to get your eyes to go where they want your eye to go which is AWAY from what they're doing!  

So those attacking Backpage saying it's to "help fight child sex trafficking" Lois Lee is saying here it's not true.  So then why do it?  That's why - they're trying to shut down Backpage because it's like a trade journal for the sex industry and how it communicates with each other.  An industry who you can get on the phone with them and find a victim in two hours or less generally.

Hitler used the same tactics to gain control over the press by the way.  He used to say he was "fighting pornographers" when in reality it was him gaining control over the media machine because he knew if you controlled the media you controlled the minds.  This is why "free speech" is so important to the issue of sex trafficking.  No it's not okay to "give away" some of our free speech rights "in the interest of fighting child pornography".  Because Lois is right here saying that Backpage was one of her most effective tools in FINDING victims!

Any industry who claims to care about the alcoholic while shunning Bill, refusing to have AA involved, and actively bashing Bill Wilson to shreds is giving you some red flags it's not the alcoholic they're trying to help.

PERSONAL EMAIL TO MONICA - CELESTE GUAP'S MOTHER

Dear Monica:

I found myself in almost the same identical shoes as your daughter back in the 1980's.  I had "bought" my freedom from a family of pimps related to Richard Pryor's family of generational pimps and prostitutes only to have word spread on the streets I was now an "independent".  Suddenly, I found myself being approached by LAPD who owned an escort service which back then was called "Talk of the Town".

They supplied escorts to the Hollywood elite, to the best five star hotels, and assured their clients we not only wouldn't rob them, but also wouldn't blackmail them.  By assuring them they were being "controlled" by cops, the clients had an assurance if we stepped "out of line" then we were the ones who would be arrested.  It was in the news yes if you were a black man in Beverly Hills you'd be arrested - but what wasn't in the news was this was them making sure the white cops of LAPD were the ones pimping us and not the African American street pimps.  You wanted to get a pimp busted?  Easy.  Call 911

 But what do you do when you've got a Beverly Hills cop TELLING you that you're going to work for them "or else"?  When I refused the first time, they busted me just for shits and giggles.  Sure they made the case disappear as the arrest was only done to show me their power.  They of course insisted of free sex during the exchange from me as well.  I continued to refuse to work with these men, and soon found myself being approached by another madam, Alex Adams.

She was called the "Beverly Hills Madam" and unknown to me at the time she was an informant for the police, the FBI, the CIA, etc.  There was no google back then, so between Alex, myself and Cheri Woods, we basically were the source to go to for a quality escort experience.  As these cops continued to apply pressure on me, I started getting calls from Cheri.  She was being asked to find "pretty girls" to come audition for the "Dating Game" produced by Chuck Barris.

We were promised expensive vacations.  I soon learned the audition tapes were being sent overseas to oil men, drug dealers, and others our government was making deals with during Iran Contra.  As I learned he was using his status as a producer as a front for what we now call "sex trafficking" (which we used to call "white slavery" back in the day as we had no word really for it), the CIA started putting pressure on me to supply them with women who would be loaded onto a plane never to be seen again.  I refused of course.


But more and more women were disappearing and their disappearance blamed on the many serial killers operating in LA back then.  Where do you go when you can't call the police and you're not even safe in jail?  Well I took an old warehouse and turned it into what I now know was the first safe house for adults in the USA.

After we managed to get some women to safety, these traffickers weren't too happy about me not cooperating as well as knowing I knew everything about their operation.  So they "set me up".  They had a woman come to me asking for help to get away from her pimp and then accused me of "pimping" her.  You can read about it at www.hightechmadam.com  Of course it was not true and they didn't have a shred of evidence.  Didn't stop them however from saying either I cooperated with them or they'd arrest my mother.

Since my mother wasn't doing anything wrong I couldn't understand for what - but they did in fact arrest her.  They charged her with pimping me based on a photo of me handing her a $20 bill in exchange for a bucket of KFC chicken.  You see under the law if you receive any money from any "known" prostitute, then you're guilty of felony pimping.  So technically they could make the case against my mom stand.  We decided to fight it because we felt a jury would think it was outrageous - so they then threatened to arrest my then 70 year old grandmother.

I didn't think she'd survive being arrested and I wasn't going to "snitch" either because I knew good and well our government wouldn't let me live if I talked about what I knew about what has now been called Iran Contra, so we took a plea bargain.  They made my bail $50,000 to keep me from speaking to the media who painted me as a madam by calling me the "High Tech Madam" because of all of the security I had on the warehouse . I wasn't given a chance to explain it was for a safe house because the press was meaning to paint me and my mother as "criminals".

I later learned the pattern - when one of us doesn't cooperate they arrest us, plaster us all over the media,  take all our money, threaten off our lawyers, and then when they got us good and where they want us - we're more "compliant".  Only I didn't want to be controlled by our government who was making women "disappear".  I wanted to blow the whistle so I took the first film and book offer to come my way.  I later learned this was a set-up also.  What I wouldn't tell the police I was soon spilling into a tape recorder thinking I was working on a script about "the truth".  Since this whole thing happened, I've been close to many of us who have been through these same high profile cases.  They follow very specific patterns which means I won't be surprised if someone else in her family soon finds themselves being arrested and/or deported or harassed in some manner.

Seven cops have now been charged, which means seven attorney's, and others, who aren't going to want her to testify.  I found myself almost murdered quite a few times for the first year this was happening.  To protect myself my attorney advised me to go move in with my grandmother who was always home so I'd always have a witness.

He warned me "not to let myself be lured outside".   Which men did try and do.  When Jeane Palfrey was in the same situation, she went to her mother's to protect her.  I also warned her "not to leave the house" and they found her body in the back yard shed.  They suppressed the fact her lower legs were bruised like someone had held her down to be hung in the manner in which she was found.  They had also sent a writer to work on her book I had warned her against also.  She went ahead anyway and sure enough the writer started saying "he knew it was suicide" and twisting facts of the case to make it appear she'd killed herself.

Of course she was being threatened and feared for her life so of course she was going to write out instructions and a Will in case of her death.  That however wasn't a "suicide plan" as the author then presented to the press  -all while I was being silenced who had spoken to her for two years daily before her death.  You can't trust the major media - especially ABC  or NBC.  I was warned about ABC when the mother of Johnny Gosch came to me saying they'd asked her for evidence to do a documentary on her son's disappearance.  Then it "disappeared".

I was prepared when they asked Jeane Palfrey for some of her "Black Book".  They had Dan Rather then get up and LIE and claim "there were no names of significance" in the book.    Because we knew not to trust them however, another copy was given to the Smoking Gun who called them out and revealed the names of David Vitter and Randall Tobias.  Two names who were involved in trafficking Jeane and her escorts - not as "johns".  They send in "influencers" to do things like get you to set up a fund raiser.  Then they gather up names, bank information, and other records which you can't deny them of her "supporters".

They are using this to get you to open up to them about her family, friends, anywhere and anyone who might hide or help her if she decides to "lay low" or "disappear".  I've been dealing with the same cops as Celeste since 2006 and I assure you there's a string of deaths connected with these traffickers.  I've already seen the deaths of more than one cop who was on a trafficking task force who was getting ready to "come clean" who was also suddenly found hung (their favorite method it seems is to hang someone).

I had tried desperately to reach out our members to help Celeste when this all went down and Nancy O'Malley did nothing but insist SHE "was handling" this.  First of all, there was a perfectly good treatment program that specializes in cases like Celeste's right in Malibu we could have got her into for free.  They've helped many a woman like her to get clean and straight.  They also don't have guards who then prosecute for assault.  It's very common for someone like her to be aggressive in early detox and the programs don't charge their clients because then they become legally liable for damages.  It was their program's fault to have controlled their employee's and also take care of their clients' - so its very very rare to see a client of a detox charged criminally.

They sent her to Florida because there are cops connected to this same trafficking operation there who have a very dominant influence down there.   Which is why there's not a doubt in my mind her arrest was manufactured to silence her and possibly even harm her in custody.  I know while I was being held on $50,000 bail it was partially to silence me to the media and also because they wanted to kill me while in custody.  My attorney had informants who told him they'd been offered money to whack me while in custody.  He was able to use that information to get me out of there so it worked out.   He had warned me not to post the bail in cash because whoever posted my bail in cash would then be arrested as my pimp.

Again, sure you can fight it.  But then you've now lost everything you owe that's been impounded, you have to then deal with attorney's, jail, court, etc.   It's so common to charge the parents - you can see they even charged Heidi Fleiss' parents.  The whole point is to make sure you don't charge them with what you can charge them with.  They'll claim your attorney is using "money laundered from criminal activity" and try and arrest your attorney.  All of these things are why we do what we do Monica.  DO NOT FALL FOR THE LIES OF SWOP.  I have proof everything they've claimed to have done is a complete fabrication.  I've spoken to the REAL "Kamylla" and it's a whole other story than they claim in the media is what they did for this "Kamylla".

Everything at www.sexworkersanonymous.org by the way is a lie.  The site was set up because I refused to be a paid informant.  So now when anyone is thinking of contacting us - they go to check out that site.  That site then captures their IP address.  It's a very cleverly designed way to get a "mirror" of my site's traffic.   These people have been doing this kind of thing for DECADES and they have a "system".

Which is why we use "pro bono" attorney's so they can't be disbarred or arrested - which is the first thing they do when you get a good attorney behind you.  They also try and get as much information on your family and supporters by coming in talking about "fund raisers".  Whatever it is Celeste and you need - we can arrange to get you for free and "anonymously".  All of your conversations with us are "confidential" by law.  We are covered by the same confidentiality laws as any doctor, lawyer or priest.  However, if you're talking to SWOP or a "reporter" you are not afforded that same law of confidentiality.  It's important because without it they can come in with a warrant or a subpena and take the information.  Including information provided to a reporter, screen writer, book author, etc., where they will then use that information as evidence for prosecution because statutes might not have expired.  That's what they did to me and countless others found in these high profile type of cases.  Including twisting things if need to be make her death appear as a suicide if they go that far.  These people have gone to great lengths to make sure women like Celeste don't speak to the media.  They completely "faked" a young girl going by the name of Wilthema Ortiz Pettigrew.

They did that because they didn't want someone who was a REAL juvenile within the system to speak out about the things Celeste's been experiencing.  Which again has been going on since the 1980's.  Yes there was the RAMPART lawsuit - but you'll notice that among the plaintiff's not one was a prostitute.  That was because it was just easier to have us disappear or be murdered and attribute it to the Grim Reaper, the Green River Killer, or any other serial killer running around.  I even had them pay an illegal alien to broadside my car to try and kill me to silence me.  That's what he told the police when they arrested him after he'd run over my car with a girlfriend of mine inside who looked like me from a distance.  You absolutely can not trust anyone with Relativity Media either.  These people do everything they can to convince you not to speak to me, including that smear campaign at www.sexworkersanonymous.org, because they don't want you to know what their "tricks" are.  Well we do and we know how to prepare you for any of them.

We want no money from you and aren't looking for press.  All we are is here to help you and your family maneuver through what's going to be a very bumpy ride for a while by sharing with you our experience and resources in this area.  We run the ONLY hotline in the country where someone who can't call the police can call us for help so again we know full well what's going on out there.   We also can show you a long list of women who had signed movie and book contracts only to have the end result appear bearing no resemblance to reality.  Then they've been unable to sue because they had either signed a confidentiality agreement, or they'd given away final cut creative control.  

I'm more concerned over how I've seen them create people around someone who then later has "validated" this person was a suicide when they weren't - and then silenced our voices to the contrary this person was murdered to silence them.  The cops down in Florida are very very dangerous.  We have members all over the country, including Florida, who can go and visit her, check in on her, and make sure she's okay.  The women from SWOP almost killed Heather from SC and for all we know she is dead now from reports we got.  We got quite a few concerned phone calls about her and no one has heard from her in months.  PLEASE trust me these women are dangerous.

I've received more then one email and call that Maxine Doogan and Domina Elle not only work as "informants" but also make evidence "disappear" and they've even "accidentally overdosed" women.  Granted these are all rumors, but when more than one woman is coming to us telling us these women are "dangerous" and we know we've seen their actions are not in the best interests of these women - then i need to warn you to BE CAREFUL.  We're here to help in any way we can.  We also know there are other women who have been treated like Celeste who we've gotten out to safety, while there are others we can't because they're surrounded by too many police.  

Keep in mind if not for Nancy O"Malley, Victory Outreach AND SWOP blocking us from Celeste - she'd be in a drug treatment program in Malibu right now doing just fine with no one knowing where she was.  We also have "benefactors" who would have taken care of your financial needs while she was getting treatment because they know she's going through a hard transition.  Iran Contra as you know was about Nicaragua - so there might even be a connection here which needs to be explored.  You are welcome to  call us anytime 24/7 at (702) 488-1127 and we'll help in any way we can.  Please be careful and realize people are not what they appear right now with what you're going through.

We however have been around for 30 years and the ONLY complaints we've gotten are not from our members - but from those women at SWOP who have been fighting us for reasons too long to go into here.  Their agenda is NOT helping us.  If it was, Celeste would be in Malibu right now thanks to us.  Just remember, they were just as much of her being in jail now as Nancy and the police were.  I hope to talk to you soon.  Jody Williams www.sexworkersanonymous.com  www.hightechmadam.com

OPEN LETTER TO CELESTE GUAP & HER FAMILY

First of all, welcome to the world of people who have been involved in high-profile prostitution scandals.  This is a small world of which I also belong so I understand everything you're going through, as did my mother, grandmother, and everyone in fact connected to my whole family who were affected by the scandal in many ways.  Because Celeste's name and face have been plastered all over the media - it's going to take some time to be able to have people not recognize her as "that girl".  There are even those who may feel she's responsible for attacks upon police officers who won't take to kindly to the whole story breaking in the press - who will blame her for this.  Who knows who might be scared of what she'll say to the press, to the prosecutor's office, and want to have her silenced.  Jeane Palfrey was murdered I believe for this reason.

When I was involved in the sex industry, I saw many things involving corruption.  Things which I honestly didn't fully even understand because I was in my 20's, I didn't have a college degree in history nor politics, and of course I only saw things from my perspective at the time.  It took me many years to fully grasp what happened to me at the time, let alone fully understand the gravity of things.  Looking back, I'm very lucky to have survived that time period, let alone the many attempts on my life back then.

I had one police officer in particular go to great lengths to get me arrested.  So far he even developed a task force so he could over step jurisdictional lines, and even to get permission to send in a task force to arrest me to make sure the others in the system viewed me as a "dangerous" criminal".  My crime?

Nothing.

I did however have a videotape.  When I used to run a brothel out of a warehouse, I used to have a hidden videocamera.  I would keep it on record to not only keep a "head count" to make sure I got paid at the end of the day, but also in case anyone got harmed, or even murdered.  There was a large number of serial killers targeting prostitutes back then and I was trying to protect everyone.

One day a party of four men came into the place.  They were using drugs, and screwed every girl in the place.  I normally would erase tapes at the end of the day, but for some reason this day I didn't.  In fact, I put the tape in a storage unit for reasons I didn't even understand at the time.

When I was arrested, I saw the cops who were on the "task force" which had been assigned to arrest me.  Four of these officers were the four men who were on my videotape.  When my bail was suddenly raised to the outrageous amount of $50,000 - my attorney advised me my life was in danger.  He had told me other clients of his had been approached with offers to murder me while in police custody hired by these cops who wanted me and my tape silenced.

I told my attorney about the sex tape.  He said he didn't believe they'd go to the extent of murdering me over simply having sex with a prostitute, even though drugs were involved.  However, he asked me where the drugs they had came from.  This was when I explained they'd come right off a boat.  I had been involved with men in our own CIA who were arranging for the cocaine to be brought into this country in boats and planes.  It was then loaded onto trucks and driven to crack houses in south central and compton where gang members processed, then packaged the drug for sale.

The smaller crack vials were shipped to the crack houses in the ghetto while the larger, more pure, packages were carried into the homes and studios of the Hollywood elite in purses carried by escorts which were arranged by myself.  These were women who weren't your "typical" prostitutes, but women who were classy enough to be working for "Talk of the Town".  This was an escort service ran by the LAPD.  Some of the same cops who later became part of the Rampart lawsuits.

The drugs weren't  just used to sell to raise cash to buy guns for the Contra's "off the books" as our country had been forbidden to help them - but also used for blackmail as well as to lock someone up you wanted locked up.  Like how they did Rick "Freeway" Ross once they wanted him locked up for what he knew also.  Information he and I both were well aware of as to where these drugs were really coming from - they sure weren't grown in south central Los Angeles.

Now my attorney says he's getting an idea why these cops are trying to get me help in police custody long enough to have an "accident".  I knew a lot more than just what was on that sex tape.  He further told me they were raising the bail so high so I'd be transferred out of the local Van Nuys jail where they couldn't explain such an "accident" to Sybil Brand Institute where you went when you were being held longer than 72 hours where "accidents" happened all the time.  If you've read up on the Paul Tanaka case, you'll know a witness was "lost" in the system for three days not long ago.  So "accidents" are still happening in police custody.  Something I"m sure Sandra Bland's family can attest to.

I had told him to just post my bail and get me out of there.  No dice he explained as the police would then just arrest whoever posted $50,000 bail on the charge of "pimping" me and then make sure prove where they got the money from was a legal source of they'd confiscate it.  He advised me until this person could verify the money was "legit" then I'd just wind up out $50,000 and another person would be in jail.  Further, the cops had supposedly threatened every bail bondsman not to bail me out because again they wanted me on the inside where I could be silenced.

I was fortunate enough to have a "regular" who was willing to put up his house for my bail and a bondsman who was a personal friend of my attorney.  The "regular"  was a retired postal worker and thus his income couldn't come under questioning.  This didn't stop them however from threatening him and trying everything in the book to try and scare him into not supporting me.  They told him things like "I would just skip on him and he'd lose his house" and other tactics to try and scare him away from helping me.  I was lucky he trusted me and proceeded with bailing me out of there before I could be harmed.  I didn't let him down either as I keep my word.

I read Nancy O'Malley has agreed to prosecute seven officers now in your case.  This means seven different officers are now going to be getting seven different attorney's to represent them who aren't going to go down easy.  Their attorney's will most likely pool their resources to hire the best private investigators they can to build their case to discredit your evidence and your testimony against their clients - that is if you make it to the point where you are called upon to testify at all.  It seems to me if Nancy cared about Celeste's best interests, she would have consulted with us about the best drug treatment program for Celeste designed for someone like her.  A perfectly lovely facility that has worked with many women in the sex industry to get them clean, and out of the industry, is right in Malibu, California by the way and I could have gotten her in there free.  These facilities don't have guards and they don't press criminal charges against clients who are in their care.

The prosecutor in my case could see I was being threatened also.  He cared about me and wanted to help.  This is why my name was changed to "Rene Le Blanc" once I posted bail.  He knew my life was being threatened also and did this not so much as to protect me from harm though, but to prevent the courts from being found liable in my death should I be murdered coming to or from the court.

Why?  Sure he cared about me, but he also made sure to protect his ass first.  They are judged by how many cases they win - not by how many they lose nor care about the victims.  Because all hearings are public record the date, time and courtroom I was appearing in was listed openly to anyone who wanted to know.  Meaning they'd know when I was coming in and out of the courthouse now.

It's listed online now, as well as it's open public record every time you're going into court to testify.  While there's great security inside the court house - they aren't responsible for what happens to you in the parking lot or the street outside of the courthouse.  My attorney argued to have the case closed for this reason so I wouldn't be murdered coming in and out of the courts, and they responded by giving me a fake name with the male spelling so they'd think I was a male even.  Only they forgot to change my mother's name whose case was joined with mine.  So they weren't being that careful to not let certain people wanting me dead know when and where I'd be - so I knew I was on my own with respect to protecting my life.

It was little mistakes like this which let me know the police weren't set up to protect someone like me who is being asked to testify against multiple police officers, as well as politicians, CIA agents, celebrities such as Chuck Barris, nor the studios Chuck worked with producing shows like the "Dating Game" who also didn't want to be drug into such a scandal.

In fact, once word spread I was being offered protection to testify as to everything I knew - a lot of people soon realized they wanted me silenced.  Meyer Lansky for example was still involved in running prostitutes back then through the nightclubs I was connected to, as well as even the Jackson family not wanting word to leak out about Michael Jackson's drug purchases from my boyfriend at the time through a club owned by people connected with Richard Pryor's family they ran to launder the prostitution and drug money.

I didn't want to wind up like Margo Compton later wound up after she testified about what she knew years on down the road from me.  http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/When-Jailbirds-Sing-It-was-the-pure-savagery-of-3018647.php  They even let her get home before her and her daughters were murdered in retaliation.

But her case, and others, showed me the system wasn't equipped to protect you when the people you were testifying against where the "criminal" type but in fact our own law enforcement, government, celebrities with money, etc.  So I decided to keep my mouth shut about everything.  I told my attorney to work out a deal with these cops to stop trying to kill me if I agreed to destroy their tape.

The prosecutor pleaded with me to "talk" so he could let me "walk" but I refused.  He knew I hadn't been using that warehouse as a 'brothel".  It was obvious because I had no phones on, no ads being run, and no sign of any prostitution.  The woman testified she'd called me asking to be helped to escape a pimp and I'd put her there as a "safe house" only to rest and heal so he knew I was in fact using the warehouse as the first "safe house" in this country for adult prostitutes trying to get away from their pimps they had no other way away from.

To try and force me to testify, they arrested my mother charging her with pimping me.  A common tactic by the way.  Even Heidi Fleiss had her parents charged with crimes.  If I hadn't of warned Jeane Palfrey in time, her mother might have been charged also.  Her attorney was able to head them off at the press and convince them charging her sick elderly mother would be bad press to get them to drop their plans to do so.

They refused to drop the charges against my mother unless I testified.  My mother agreed it was best to remain quiet, and agreed to take a plea to a lesser charge in order to make this case go away and get myself on probation.  My attorney said they knew I'd get probation because I hadn't done anything wrong - but he said now the fun began.  Now they'd try and get my probation violated he warned me -  which would then send me to prison for 10 years.  He said this was where they got most people off to prison - probation violations.

Back then a group existed which is much like SWOP today.  It was called COYOTE however (Call Off Your Tired Old Ethics).  I met the founder, Margo St. James, and heard all of her rap about how she'd formed the group to help sex workers be treated like "professionals" and to have it treated "just like any other job or professional who should be treated with respect".  She was pushing to have prostitution decriminalized.

After I was put on probation, the woman who was telling everyone she was opening the Los Angeles chapter of COYOTE, Norma Jean Almodovar, suddenly became real friendly with me.  She was telling me about a book about her life she was writing where she'd gone from being a "cop to call girl".  Only she'd been arrested for "pimping" that year (as many of us did in 1984), and was awaiting sentencing herself.  During the time she was waiting for her sentence, she was going on TV a lot to promote COYOTE, and her upcoming book.

I couldn't understand why she was going on TV talking openly about working as a prostitute while waiting on being sentenced.  I even asked her a few times "Don't you think you should be laying low until after you're sentenced so you don't piss off the court?"  She was emphatic she wasn't going to be "silenced or coerced into silence by the threat of jail" and kept going out there doing appearances and prompting COYOTE.

I then asked her point blank if she wasn't scared about being re-arrested while going through this because she was saying on these appearance's she would "never stop working as a prostitute".  It was then Margo had explained to me that one of the beauties about COYOTE was they were able to be "activists" because they had a "Black Book" of regulars they "knew were cool" they could each tap into.  Therefore, no they weren't worried about the police because they were sharing regulars in other words.  Regulars they offered to share with me so I wouldn't get popped while on probation, and also joining them in activism.

When I was arrested, the police took everything.  My condo, my cars, my furs, jewelry, cash, phones, office's, etc.  Everything was wiped out and shut down.  The idea of being able to tap into their regulars to be able to pay my own rent while on probation was quite appealing.  I certainly couldn't go back to any of my old regulars who were so scared by the press no one would talk to me for fear they'd be arrested or have their name plastered on the news.   All my celebrity clients stopped taking my calls for that reason I'd imagine because of the publicity circling around me.

That and the police had gotten ahold of my "Black Book".  They were going to all of my regulars asking them to set me up.  Ask me to come over where they'd then arrest me.  Sure it was entrapment, but then they weren't worried about that case sticking when they were really shooting to violate my probation.  So I couldn't go near my regulars at all.

I was considering this, but also was thinking about going to the press about what I knew.  Norma told me she had a list of TV producers she could offer me.  She had been acting like a real friend to me during this stressful time.  We seemed to understand each other being we'd both been in high profile'd arrest cases.  So I went to meet with her for lunch and to get these numbers.

As I left the restaurant, I was followed home by an undercover cop car.  When I got into the house, the device which let me know my phone was tapped had the light on.  Clearly someone had followed me home and then tapped my phone.  I called Norma Jean from a payphone to let her know what was going on.  Didn't seem to phase her.  Not one bit.  I told her that while she was waiting on being sentenced these people were obviously watching her trying to catch her doing something wrong.  She basically acted like she had nothing to worry about - which just seemed strange to me.  I was terrified of going to prison.  I also found it even stranger all of the phone numbers she gave me for producers seemed to be expired.

I contacted my attorney who started advising me about things like the "conspiracy laws".  He also reminded me how my so called "best friend" Alex had been a FBI information for years before she'd been a part of what got me arrested.  Then pointed out for all I knew Norma could be setting me up to get her own sentence reduced.  Just because she "says" the guy's a "regular" doesn't mean he's not an undercover cop you know?

That's when he told me to "stay away" from ANYONE who could be looking to throw me under the bus to save their own ass.  Alex had already done this, Cheryl, the woman who I had taken in to get away from her pimp had fingered me also, and this was now two so called "friends" who had thrown me under the bus to save themselves.  He warned me while I was on probation - I needed to avoid being near ANYONE who could point the finger at me for anything.  If I wanted to stay alive, and out of prison that is.

He reminded me how the LAPD had planted drugs in my car, in my apartment, in my hotel room, even planted a fake criminal case on my record just to harass me and make me drive all over half of California for shits and giggles on their part about how they could fuck with me.  He said the last thing I needed was some woman claiming I'd "tried to pimp her" or "tried to sell her drugs" and have the court believe them.  Which meant he didn't want me NEAR anyone who wasn't a 100 percent bonafide "legit" person with a job.   He said they'd have a hard time trying to make the court believe a cashier had just tried to sell me cocaine - but an easy one if a prostitute or dealer were to claim the same thing.  In other words, he wanted me around nothing but church ladies to protect myself.  Something I'd like to recommend to Celeste right now for the same reasons.

Even more than this, he wanted me to move in with my grandmother.  I had just had someone show up at my motel room demanding to see me with a like hunting knife.  The police had come but he'd refused to drop the knife.  The police had to shoot him dead.  A girlfriend of mine had been driving my car who looked like me and broadsided.  She had died and the illegal driving the car had told police he'd been paid to broadside her.  My attorney said he was worried that if I lived alone they'd try and claim I'd committed suicide.  So he wanted me to move in with my elderly grandmother who was always home so I'd have a witness where I was at all times.  He also advised me not to "let anyone talk you into leaving the house" until things cooled off.  Which men did show up and try to lure me out of her house for lame reasons.  I didn't know why because I wouldn't leave.

I bring this up because Jeane Palfrey went to stay with her mother to protect her because someone had been following her the day before.  I advised her to come stay with an SWA member we knew well but she said she was worried about her mother being alone.  I then advised her the same as I was advised - not to leave her mother's house then for any reason.  She had told me she wouldn't - but then her body was found out in a back shed.  So sadly she had left her mom's house that night.  A fatal move.

There was another reason he wanted me to stop talking to COYOTE members.  He told me that if I was accused of something, then witnesses could be called.  He said if I talked to these people who were not bound by confidentiality laws, who knows what they could say about me from the stand.  He also told me if I saw a counselor to be sure they were a psychiatrist and not some counselor.  When I asked why, he said that only doctors were covered under the confidentiality laws - not counselors, not support groups, not support groups.

He said if I was accused of anything he wanted to be sure he could keep them silent because of confidentiality laws.  Not again have some junkie or prostitute put up on the stand who had made a deal with the cops, or even the press, to claim I'd said anything the other side wanted them to say to get me locked up in jail for a long time.  You'd be surprised because I've now seen both Jeane Palfrey's ex-attorney, Montgomery Sibley, now lie in my opinion to the press as well as the author who was working on a book about Jeane lie to the the press also.

I told Norma Jean I was moving in with my grandmother and wouldn't be hooking again until at least after  I got off probation.  For some reason she got really angry with me and refused to speak to me again after that.  Like somehow I had betrayed her by wanting to keep my nose clean while people were trying to kill me and not wanting to violate my probation.  I never understood why she stopped talking to me once I told her I wasn't going to do anything illegal.

The film people came running too.  I didn't know one company from another so I took the one who offered the biggest check as option money.  They gave me a nice fat check and then told me to sell my film they had to "get my whole story down on tape".  They hired a stenographer, not a screen writer, to come in and had me tell them everything about everything into tapes upon tapes about everything from birth to yesterday.  The police knew I wouldn't talk yet here I was spilling my guts for a Hollywood producer freely.  Boy was I young and dumb.

While I was doing this, I kept getting offers to do talk shows.  They reminded me I had a clause in my contract which gave them the right to tell me when I could talk, who I could talk to, and about what.  That they didn't want me talking until they had the script done because they didn't want to worry about copyright violations.  Basically, it was a great way to get me to stop giving interviews to the press for a while and pump me as to what I knew and what I didn't.

At the end of the year, they came back and offered me double to renew my option.  Which was strange because usually movies like mine were made fast while people remembered the news.  But it wasn't selling yet they wanted to offer me more money?  Well fine with me I needed a new car and I went ahead.  It was about then however I saw Alex and Sydney's movie come out - but not mine.  I wondered why so I watched their films.  Bore no resemblance to reality.

I called them up and asked them why they let those films be made if they weren't going to tell the "whole" truth.  They said "who cares about the truth" basically as they "just wanted the money".  They both were back madaming back then so yeah it was good for business for them to have a film out and pocket the money so yeah who cares about the truth right?

Well I kind of did and when the 2nd year option was beginning to expire I began to smell a rat.  I asked a director friend of mine to look into this for me.  He came back saying "you signed with Republic Pictures?"  I said "yeah".  Then he laughed.  I said "what's so funny?"  He asked me if I knew all they did was distribute John Wayne films - they didn't MAKE films.  No I didn't know that.

He told me he had checked around and I had been given what's called a "silent option" meaning I was being signed to NOT talk to the press about what I knew.  I didn't believe him at first.  Then he started talking logically - like why were they waiting until people were forgetting about me and then coming up with more money for a longer contract if making a film was what they were really after.   I refused to sign the option for the third year so I was legally free to go talk in the press once again.

My attorney was horrified.  He told me that records and tapes the producers kept could be subpena'd by the cops any time they wanted had I found myself on a probation violation hearing.  Then he had  me go over everything I'd said on those tapes with him.  When I asked why - he said "because you don't know if you just confessed to a crime you can be charged for where the statute hasn't expired you idiot and you gave them the legal right to do with those tapes whatever they wanted to do with them including turning them over to the police".

This is when he explained to me further had I done something to file a complaint against one of these cops, all they had to do to try and counter-sue me or lock me up to prevent me from testifying would be to pull those tapes I'd just made for this producer.  When I didn't see the connection between the cops and producers at first - he reminded me I didn't see the connection between a Hollywood producer like Chuck Barris and the CIA at first either did I and we had a good tense laugh at that one.

I later heard stories about just this sort of thing when I met Johnny Gosch's mother who was part of the Omaha Franklin scandal.  She had told me ABC had asked to see a lot of her original evidence in the case only to have everything "disappear" in their custody.   She didn't think producers would make evidence disappear in a missing child case - but they did.   This came up when I was telling her how ABC had screwed me over in the film "Fighting for my Daughter".  That's when she told me how ABC had screwed her over.

We'd been involved in rescuing a teen girl from a pimp in Canada.  The girl, her mother, and myself and the SWA member up in Canada who had connected me to the mother, had gone on the Sally Jesse Raphael talk show.  After the show, a producer came down and offered everyone a lot of money to do the film. $50,000 to each one of us for our rights to the story sounded like a lot of money so we all agreed.

They wanted to know how we'd found this girl when no one else had been able to and told us they wanted to make the film to promote our hotline so "other mothers could call for help".  We bought it hook, line and sinker working with the writers for the next couple of months night and day telling them everything about the case.

Now if you were making a film about a teen sex trafficking rescue operation - you'd think you'd want to show how they did this, and also promote the group who had done this for this mother without one penny of money asked in return for our help, and to further promote the hotline for other parents to be able to call and get that help right?  Especially when they learned the pimp was so violent and dangerous the police hadn't wanted to touch the case before we got involved.

So you can imagine our surprise when the film came out with everything done 180 degrees opposite of the truth, and then our hotline didn't air at the end of the film.  So why make it?  This confused us for the longest time.  Sure they screwed us out of the money too because it was the "opposite of our story" but still why pump us then for the story if they were going to just fake it all anyway?   We tried to sue the film company but they just shut it down right after filming stopped.  

But then I had to ask myself if I would have told anyone how we found that girl as we did had it not been for the film.  I certainly didn't want the pimps exactly knowing how we operated and had kept that close to the vest before.  But along comes a producer and the offer of a fat check and suddenly I'm flapping my gums and revealing all our "trade secrets" of how we used to go in and find girls under control of men like that.  .

Which is what happens when one comes along talking about a fund raiser also.  What a great way to get the family to open up, start flapping their gums about what they know, who the family members are, where they live, is anyone a legal resident, what's their social security number, where do they bank, where do they work, and what do they know?  Great way to find out more dirt on someone too - get the family yapping thinking they're getting money.   I mean didn't we see someone in the family selling out Bobbi Christina's photos to the press as she laid dying?   So sometimes family will say a lot of things for money against another family member.

When you got 7 cops' futures laying on the line - this can be important information.  Especially if she starts getting death threats and decides she wants to run from the case and not testify.  Where would she run?  How would she get there?  Who might wire her money?  Information they've had turned over to their "informants" who got to know the family real well during the fund raiser.

Who can forget that scene in the Godfather where the man testifying in front of Congress was silenced simply by his brother from Sicily being brought into the courtroom?  Never threatened.  Just brought into the courtroom and sat down.

Does Celeste have anyone like that she can be silenced about because she loves them that much?  Easy way to find out is sweeping in offering a fund raiser.  Especially when the information is not "confidential" by law - meaning it can be bought and sold, turned over to the police, and basically done with whatever they want.   This is how they got John Gotti by the way as well as Whitey Bulger - all using film production companies.  In fact, a film with Alex Baldwin playing an FBI agent posing as a producer was even made about the John Gotti case.

See one of the reasons I choose a 12 step structure for our program is we're covered under laws grandfathered in by AA As to confidentiality. Anything said to us stays with us and no one can give us a warrant nor a subpoena to force us to say anything against you.  Anyone who gives us money to help Celeste is also covered by those confidentiality laws.

Just remember, Alex Adams was an informant for the FBI for over 10 years.  She was responsible for a lot of us being arrested - from myself once, to Cheri Woods and Heidi Fleiss that I'm aware of.  I'm sure there was more and she also relayed a lot of information to law enforcement as well during her reign.  No one believed she was anything other than their best friend also.  Alex also made a nice living off selling information to the authorities.  A practice still done today.   I know because I was offered a monthly check in exchange for providing information on those who call our hotline to the authorities.  I refused.

Same with Rick "Freeway" Ross.  He was locked up for life because a "friend" came to him asking him to make a drug deal.  He refused.  Then supposedly this guy threatened to murder a friend of his if he didn't go along.  He supposed went along to protect his friend and wound up sentenced to life in prison.  Kind of makes you realize you got to be careful who you trust around here.

Aren't sure who to trust?  Well who is warning you about things you should think about to cover your ass?  I'm not holding a fund raiser either.  I don't hold fund raisers on people we're trying to help because I don't want records of their supporters being something which can be subpena'd.  But I consider things like that, especially if we have to help this person get the hell out of Dodge to save their ass - I don't want anyone to be able to figure out where we sent them.

Just remember this Celeste - that case can't move forward without your testimony and you now are going to have at least seven lawyers, seven cops, their families, their friends, and everyone else connected to them not wanting you to testify any way they can accomplish that.  Our group had tried to get ahold of you to get you the hell out of the states before any of this went down so you'd be safe.  We were blocked from doing this by Nancy O'Malley's office, Victory Outreach, and SWOP.

Meaning you probably wouldn't be in jail now had we not been blocked.  Now sure you can probably sue these guys for a lot of money.  Maybe.  If you can prove damages.  But take a look at all the cases of police brutality and wrongful shootings over the years and tell me what your odds are now that you'd win anything meaningful against these guys for what they did to you. You don't even have a bruise on you and take a look at what they did to the cops who beat Rodney King.

Remember, a juvenile was found in "Operation Dollhouse" and a judge claimed this "wasn't a case of trafficking".  That was a juvenile found in a whore house with pimps, bags of drugs, and two cops right there on the premises caught red-handed.

Be careful Celeste.  Just be careful.  We're here you ever want to talk confidentially.
