Okay first of all - look at this guy. Tell me if when you hear the term "sex trafficker" do you think of this image?
The whole article on him can be found here https://patch.com/california/sanramon/private-investigator-christopher-butler-pleads-guilty0df4c86437
Now imagine you've gone through this, or even heard about something like this. Then seriously - tell me you're going to see an ad like this and CALL THE POLICE?
Oh I know - we can know they can call their local pastor right? http://www.toledoblade.com/Police-Fire/2017/10/05/Toledo-pastor-charged-with-sex-trafficking-of-a-minor.html
Here's the thing - people say "why should we care about some prostitutes being trafficked, exploited, robbed, raped, etc.?"
But we're spending money on this - a lot of money. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/nevada/articles/2017-09-21/fbi-billboard-owner-begin-vegas-human-trafficking-campaign
Only read the fine print. Was Chris Butler caught by a billboard? Was one actual trafficker caught off a billboard? Sure some more PROSTITUTES were busted. Probably victims of men like Chris. Then they get a hero's welcome in fact for "busting prostitutes" which might even be a smoke screen for what they're REALLY doing.
Because call the number on that billboard and where does it go?
TO THE POLICE IN THE LOCAL AREA.
NOT TO A HOTLINE LIKE OURS ANSWERED BY A SURVIVOR NOT CONNECTED TO LAW ENFORCEMENT LIKE WE AREN'T. The one at www.sexworkersanonymous.com
Now why should you care what is happening to these women?
I'll tell you WHY:
Because predators aren't picky. They prey on EVERYONE. The Chris Butler story talks about not only the "johns" that were preyed upon, but OTHER POLICE AS WELL.
