This is to Craig McCoy about  I just came across this and wanted to thank you for the story.  I also saw this today too   In 1989 I was asked to come to Allentown to help sex trafficking victims in a program that was called the "Program for Female Offenders".  We were highly effective.  By 1990, we had cleared 2,000 prostitutes out of the womens' jail who never were arrested again despite all being heavy "repeat offenders".  The hotline I founded in 1997 was done so because our kind CAN'T call the police for help when trafficked.

Why?  Because men like Eliot Spitzer are too busy covering their ass.  Sure to up their numbers and look good for the press he'd throw a competitor's escort service under the bus but never ever the service he was using.   Meaning anyone in that service who is being trafficked is just SOL when needing help.   What are they going to do - go to the Salvation Army's homeless shelter when making $4000 an hour?  Why would they need to run?  Check out his violence against an escort recently and ask me that again and that's what we know about.  When one of us is raped, beaten, stalked - we can't call the police either.  

So when victims try going to the police they wind up like Margo Compton and her twin daughters - slaughtered.  But I have a serious problem going on right now Craig I'm hoping your story might help me with - that's all this money for trafficking victims is going to the police.  What are they doing with it? Throwing a few bucks to a local homeless shelter and making them look good in the press and then NOTHING.

Absolutely nothing.  Then women who are in trafficking rings like those involving Chris Butler have nowhere to go for help but to someone like our program.  Which was fine until 2003 when the TVRA of 2003 was passed by Randall Tobias - a man whose name appeared in Jeane Palfrey's Black Book. Since then everything in the trafficking field I can show you goes back to one of two sources - either the Catholic Church or Catherine Chon of Polaris who is also head of the HHS office that provides the grants for the trafficking programs, designs the trafficking trainings, and basically only has the police, social services, mental health, etc. doing one thing and one thing only - they are focusing on the lower level street junkies who use prostitution to support their habit.

They are putting them into section 8 housing, charging Medicaid a fortune, and slapping them on $1,000's of dollars in psychiatric medications monthly while putting them into research experiments they're getting more grants for.  In the meantime, women like who are being trafficked in the DEA owned strip club in NJ can't call the police for help.  Those involved in this stripping and porn scandal you wrote about can't call the police for help.  The girls pimped by a NY cop who would drive them all the way to NJ to turn tricks for him can't call the police for help.  The ONLY group they can call for help is US.  

However, we're blacklisted from any of the grant money because we're not "faith based", nor do we work with clients who call their hotline.  To further make sure they have complete control over this field they've now even created a "survivor board" to "advise on policy" to the White House.  What they've done is cut off from receiving help anyone who is being trafficked who can't call the police for help because those harming them are people within the legal system - the cops, the judges, the prosecutors, etc.  

I've heard the big fuss about Rep. Cory Bookman going to rescue three kids - but those were human trafficking kids forced to work on an egg farm - not 14 year olds forced into porn and stripping.  No - when we get those calls and try to reach him, Loretta Lynch, Kamala Harris, Dianne Feinstein, or any of these others' claiming to be supporters of the field I created mind you (check the dates at to verify I'm the founder of this movement which didn't exist prior to 1984 when I put together the first safe house in Van Nuys I got busted over) I can't get anyone on the phone.  The Program for Female Offenders fell apart when I left town to have my daughter in 1991.  I've seen tried to get anyone who will listen to help me put the program back together because of the need and I hear nothing.

Your story explains something to me - the only group I've been able to even get to talk to me since 1991 was a group of methadone addicts in Philly.  When I've asked to be incorporated into the program there working with prostitutes in Philly - I can't get a return phone call.  That's like the drug court refusing to take Bill Wilson's call.  The methadone addicts are street walkers on drugs.  They don't have a pimp because all their money goes into drugs.  Yet when I've tried to get their counselors to speak to me - I get nowhere.  I've tried getting into where the victims are being preyed upon by the pimps such as the strippers, the escorts, and those in porn - and no one returns my calls.  In my 30 years now of experience that means somewhere some man is covering up his dirty laundry that he doesn't want anyone to find out about.

Which is why I've been saying the only way to address this issue is decriminalization.  Then I won't have these men more worried about their ass than protecting these women from these pimps who can't call the police and their only resource is us.  Which again was fine until 2003 when suddenly we've being cut out of the system entirely by these offices afraid they're not going to get their grant money if they go up against Polaris' competitor.  Only how are we a "competitor"?  Polaris wants to have the only one getting help are female trafficking victims.  Those who are sex workers, the LGBT, transgenders, and those who are Jewish, they act like they don't exist.   In other words, they are denied any services.  The result?

We're now seeing an HIV epidemic this country hasn't seen since the 1980's.   Because while we help anyone from any part of th sex industry to exit - we don't only focus on one tiny segment.  We also don't block them from going to doctors as the ACLU v. Catholic Bishops proved was happening for many years.   No our outreach campaigns used to be going out with condoms and information on HIV education and prevention - and then saying "if you know anyone who needs help to leave - have them call us".  Now, unless you want to throw a pimp under the bus - you're just SOL.  Leaving out entirely women like Pennsylvania saw of the three women who testified about how great their pimps were to them.

Only I ask you - what else would they say knowing they're going to have to give visitation to the father of those children for the next 18 years one of the victims was pregnant with on  the stand?  So there was no way she'd piss him off knowing she's going to have to let him know where his child is for the next 18 years or she gets charged with kidnapping.    What did they expect?  But did they bring us in to serve as an expert witness?  Oh hell no because then I'd be also talking to the women in the strip clubs and massage parlors and the porn sets these men in your piece don't want exposed to the light of day.

So thank you for this article.  It's more ammunition in my letters to those above at the White House about why there has to be a SEPARATE program from that connected to our law enforcement, our legal system, etc., or the majority of these men and women needing help to leave when they can't do it anyone.   Nor can we put this on a basis connected to grant money or we're going to see more cases like this coming to light.

To follow up to - in February of 2014.

Seems after the February raids - the economy had a slump.  So a lot of the prostitutes were now wondering what they were going to do to pay the rent.

Then came - in April of 2014 when more corruption arrests came down against men who were part of the Chinese government that had been threatening many of these same prostitutes with getting sentences with the death penalty if they didn't comply with the demands of traffickers according to what victims were telling us.

In May of 2014 the trials began.

We read this recently - about how the investigation loop was widening.

Is this having an impact?  Yes and no.  The ring we've been getting calls from victims about who said they were being trafficked here from China - did feel the heat.

However, their response was to start trafficking women from KOREA!!!  So the machine is still operating - just with victims from a different country now because many of the heads of this operation were not arrested yet.  This is again why the RICO laws were written in this country to respond to the same issue when we first dealt with this with the Italian mob.  The "five families" which has been pretty much dismantled - and now these "ethnic" gangs have moved into the vacuum with the Aryans supposedly in law enforcement protecting them.

Now this was the same ring that was responsible for the shutting down of NINE massage parlors in Wichita, Kansas in 2013 according to documents that I have from a victim here in California tying her to these arrests.

Please note from this article it talks about "recruiting women out of San Francisco".  I bring that up because Maxine Doogan had yes "tried to decriminalize prostitution" there.  Something I had previously supported her for in order to make the prosecution of traffickers easier.  Then I learned she had tried to get this same ballot to conceal language that would help Asian trafficking victims to get help to escape.

Which is why I have completely changed my position of previous support of the group SWOP, Sex Workers Outreach Project, under their new leadership, and the allowing of Maxine Doogan to be a public spokeswoman for them.

My understanding of SWOP previously was this was a group that believed sex workers should have the same "rights" and treatment as any other worker in this country.  That the sex industry is a profession like any other, and that no human being should be forced to engage in, nor exploited, nor abused, nor treated in any way differently than one would treat a doctor, attorney, teacher, or any other professional.

However, Maxine has supposedly helped to cut the funding to St. James Infirmary from what our members have reported to us, she tried to block wording in a proposition from going on the ballot so people wouldn't know she was trying to cut funding to help trafficking victims in San Francisco who were primarily Asian in massage parlors,  AND she was involved in denouncing the recent Seattle arrests who FREED Asian women who were being FORCED by a criminal operation that was doing things like threatening to kill their family members back home if they did not engage in sex work.

Frankly, considering Maxine's background with her own legal case, I'm shocked by her recent attacks upon our group which only started in 2015 when the show "8 Minutes" came on-air.   Now we've read there's a lot of money involved with this Asian sex trade that also carries over into operating here within the USA.  We also know the Chinese engage in very "unfair trade practices" in that they will readily engage in very complex and sophisticated "smear" campaigns such as we've seen them do just over CHICKEN.  A product which PALES in comparison to how much money is involved in the sex trade.

Maxine certainly had exhibited no problem with us at any time prior to the show "8 Minutes" (we've been around since 1987 and not a peep out of her before March of 2015)  - and in fact we might have even been able to be of some help to her in her case, and the other women in her case, had they known about our work back when Maxine was originally arrested.  Again, something I fault SWOP for not having told her about how we might have helped her, and the other prostitutes, who were saying they were forced to testify against Maxine, by a bad cop.

I say that because this case reads pretty much like what many of our members deal with, including Jeane Palfrey, who was nicknamed the D.C. Madam.  Seems a cop had sex with a few sex workers in Seattle, and then turned them "informant" who Maxine says then made false allegations against her which charged her as a pimp in fact.   Now I ask you with a COP forcing you to make false allegations against another sex worker - what do you do?  Where do you go?  Who do you call for help?

We have advertised since day one we are the ONLY hotline ( I'm aware of anyway for adults who can call us that is NOT connected with law enforcement in any way. What that means is that we don't report anything on anyone who calls us to the police for one (except as legally required such as if they're threatening suicide for example).

Second, it means that if a victim is being threatened by a cop in some fashion, such as being forced to have sex with them, forced to be an informant, or even forced to make false accusations against someone else like Maxine says was being done to her, and they decide their life is in danger - where do you go to be safe?  The Salvation Army is not set up for this kind of thing.  Nor are most homeless or domestic violence shelters.  In fact, our members have reported when they've run to such shelters for safety the cop, sheriff, marshal, etc., has shown up, flashed their badge, and the facility has just handed them over with no questions asked even like "where are you taking this person?"

Jeane Palfrey was reporting to us that men like Randall Tobias, and David Vitter, among others, were part of the men who were coming to her working within our government who were forcing her to continue working as a madam, forcing her escorts to continue working as escorts, and also using them like these informants against Maxine, to pump men for information they wanted, plant information they wanted planted, to create blackmail, and to seal government deals like we've heard about leak out like with our Navy.

She did not reveal the names of "johns" but of "traffickers" and her case was not plead out so she could make her "black book" public record where these men couldn't silence those records.   Now we had offered to help her go "off the grid" to which she replied she wanted to "prove what was going on in the sex industry" and "how trafficking extends beyond just the prostitutes to the madams as well". How traffickers are not all like Bishop Don Juan - but instead are men like we read about, and I witnessed, with Iran Contra.

My point being that there were women in those massage parlors in San Francisco, and Seattle, that were being forced to be there, and threatened, and exploited, and their money taken from them, where the only way these women could get free was to have these arrests happen.  I say that because from 1984 until about 2013 - our program has been able to organize "rescues" of women like that where they, and their family, has been able to get free of the trafficking operation WITHOUT anyone having to be arrested.  We've just helped them to "disappear" off the grid as we've done in cases such as the Chris Butler case where he was a private investigator who used to be a cop.  He had a lot of resources to find those not cooperating with him, as does men like Rick Rizzolo, who was caught getting information from OC Sheriff Mike Corona while he was in prison.

However, this Asian ring that's connected to the Wichita arrests, and the Seattle arrests, as well as operating in San Francisco, and a few other cities in the USA, has such advanced technology, combined with such corrupt contacts, which again Maxine has witnessed when a cop can sleep with prostitutes, and then force them to make false accusations.

How is that?  Probably because Maxine was a competitor to this operation which is what we've been seeing.  We've been watching as independent sex workers who are advertising on sites like Backpage, Craigslist, The Erotic Review, My Redbook, etc. are being targeted for arrest by any means possible as a measure to shut down the competition TO THESE MASSAGE PARLORS and Asian rings using cops like this Ring cop to accomplish those end goals.

So here is an operation the Seattle police were BRAVE enough to arrest and go after, who not only was trafficking those women in those parlors, but ALSO using corrupted officers just like the one who came after Maxine, to get them arrested using any means possible, just like they did with Maxine, because they are competition to their girls, just like Maxine was.

Then when this Seattle police goes after these animals like police are SUPPOSED TO DO - Maxine ATTACKS THEM?  I have documented proof I've been trying to get charges filed against police officers for abusing prostitutes which complaints, calls, emails have been going unanswered, as seems to be a pretty common thing in Los Angeles as reported in this article - which I don't think we'd even be hearing about now if not for the neighborhood block leader who finally complained - and Maxine is attacking these officers for moving in to help these women get free?


Now this is what Seattle just did and SWOP'S ATTACKING THEM?  WTF?

But at the same time I've not heard one word about 15 year old Latesha Clay, who was the mother of two children, being forced to work as a prostitute because of poverty, having a gun probably to protect herself out there in Michigan's streets, and because of this "No Such Thing" campaign which was pushing to not have juveniles arrested for prostitution - she's tried as an ADULT and now locked up in prison?  Only as an adult she should have been offered the "alternative to incarceration" ALL adults are offered which is to attend our program - but she was not because she's a juvenile?

I've not heard a word out of Maxine about Amber Batts, who was also locked up in jail RATHER than being offered our program, which cost her custody of her children, got her divorced, and then all this publicity because she was trying to provide screening and security for other working women up in Alaska country?  There was no reason for her to have been put in jail either when she could have asked the judge to attend our program instead, and a member of SWA up there could have stood up with her to take over responsibility so she's still be in her home, with her husband and her kids!  I don't remember Maxine approaching either judge in either of these cases to lend her support to them. 

Which by the way I find 5.5 years is INSANE for Amber screening calls to protect sex workers on new appointments vs. the TWO YEARS that Kemp Shiffer received for trafficking teens between California and Nevada using his IRS badge, and cop connections, for TWELVE YEARS before the police were finally able to bring a case against him?

Nor do I remember in her attacks against Katherine Griffin-Townsend, or myself, both ex-sex workers, who now try and help other sex workers AVOID JAIL TIME, say one word of attack against Kevin Brown, Greg Reese, or Relativity Media.   Things like Relativity Media might have not shown one single frame of footage about REAL TRAFFICKING VICTIMS IN ASIAN MASSAGE PARLORS because they partnered with a government owned Chinese film company who has stated they want "no films showing Asian prostitution" in other interviews.   Who raised money from investors for a "reality series" and then gave us a staged scripted production leading these investors to call Relativity Media "con artists" which Relativity slapped them with a defamation suit to get them to retract the accusations.

Why attack them directly over the way they portrayed sex workers as all "victims" and falsely portrayed real trafficking victims?   How about getting them to explain if there was no "rescue" operation clearly as there wasn't - then what were they doing running around Orange County trying to get ahold of teenage prostitutes like "Sweets" exactly to do then?

I mean what was those meetings FOR then if there was NO RESCUE?

Chris Butler, and OTHER COPS, in California, were arrested just months prior to Kevin Brown's launching of a "rescue" where prostitutes were threatened in their motel rooms, robbed,, and told they either "worked for them" or they'd be arrested.

Maxine's antics in the media probably do great for filling up her personal appointment book, great for her fund raising, but I'm failing to see how she's on the side of sex workers in any way, shape or form lately.  The fact that SWOP is not only standing by, but supporting some of these antics, is beyond blowing my mind.  I mean asking sex workers to "vouch they're engaging in illegal sex work" or asking another sex worker to "vouch they're an illegal sex worker" to join the group, then inviting sex workers to come out to meetings in public places where they can be videotaped without the need of a warrant - just absolutely blows my mind with respect to how much information they're collecting on sex workers that could be used in a court of law against them.  To further get them charged with conspiracy by having them gather to speak about how to engage in illegal sex work.  To take money from identified prostitutes as donations which is technically a felony, and to support legislation, which is also in total violation of her 501c3.  Yet she's not getting arrested for some reason.


You know she was arrested supposedly by prostitutes who were forced to speak against her.  This recent case in Los Angeles is another case where the cop supposedly turned the woman into an "informant" after raping her while Internal Affairs did nothing to help her.   I mean it's not like any of SWOP's board members are using that position to do research on sex workers for money or anything right like Lindsey? Or Matthrew?

Katie Hall-Jares seems to also be a researcher on sex workers for the Dept. of Health.  Darrell has been working on "drafting a report for the UN on HIV" for which I'm sure he's paid something in the way of a grant.  Andrea Ferguson - researcher on sex workers.  Fatemah - researcher.  Kate Zen - researcher.

What I'm not seeing on the list of directors however is men or women who are engaging in illegal sex work.  Meaning they're putting their butts out there on the line where they can be arrested - but I am seeing them signing up new members who are in very incriminating manners, and then getting grant money from research on said sex workers.  Yet the organization itself has not been charged in any way for "receiving earnings from a prostitute".

Now if my mother can be arrested for taking $20 from me for a bucket of chicken I asked her to buy, as did my nail lady for doing my nails, and the hotel desk clerk for taking money for a room from me - then I know well that ANY money received by a "known prostitute" is a felony.  Yet this group is not reporting any arrests.  Narcotics Anonymous was.  So many arrests they had to get a law passed so that cops would stop arresting them at their meetings.  Until this law was passed NA meetings had to be "rabbit" meetings moved from day to day to prevent arrest.

I know it's why our group doesn't ask for donations from members, and gives the Recovery Guide, to new members still working in prostitution so that we don't get guilty of this felony pimping, arrested, and then forced to provide information on our members to law enforcement as they've tried to do to us in the past.  We just resolved the problem by not taking money.

But SWOP is out here suing prosecutors, raising $1,000's of dollars from active sex workers in cities where it's illegal, asking members to incriminate themselves, give out bank and address information, come to public meetings where they could be photographed, AND suddenly attacking what once they were treating like a sister program that runs the ONLY program in the country which can be used as an "alternative to incarceration" for adults, helps those having problems with corrupt officials, helps those who can't call the cops for help, helps sex workers escape pimps without involving the cops, and helps provide FREE legal assistance WITHOUT having to hold fund raisers because our experience has shown that attorney's who publicly take money from prostitutes wind up often disbarred (check out what happened to Montgomery Sibley for one example, or what happened to the attorney who defended Larry Flynt, etc.).

Again hmm.

If the things Maxine was saying against people like myself and Katherine Griffin-Townsend were true - that's one thing.  But they're not.  So her behavior, combined with lying about real ex-sex workers, out there trying to help other sex workers avoid time in jail, and to get free of very real pimps and traffickers, while again NOT asking the hard questions like WHY was Relativity Media staging the show "8 Minutes", and WHY was Kevin Brown running around Orange County motels trying to find prostitutes if NOT for a rescue because one didn't exist, and so on and so on.

If she's such a friggin "sex worker advocate" then she should have been THANKING the Seattle police for freeing those victims against some very bad dudes.  That ring in Wichita threatened the judge, the arresting officer, and myself, with death threats.  Threats I took seriously in light of weird things that happened to me including being poisoned at a lunch meeting with someone in this operation that put me in the emergency room, among a few other very real things they did which also like having a police officer threaten me and slapping one of their victims with TWO fake prostitution charges.

Just a lot here not computing.

Dear Chris Hanson:

I don't know if you remember me at all - but I wrote you a letter back when I saw your show "To Catch a Predator".  I saw the way you were setting up pedophiles and after having met John Quinones when he came out to Vegas to interview me and check into our program, and after seeing his "What Would You Do"? show - I wrote you pitching the idea that you set up a combination show where you do kind of the same concept as you do with the pedophiles - but with pimps.

Then I wanted you to consider staging a situation whereby we show how when these types of pimps kidnap women right off the street to then rape them, brainwash them, and then "turn them out" onto the street - I wanted your cameras to show how NO ONE generally will intervene.  I say that based on 1000's of stories I've heard over the years from the members of Sex Workers Anonymous who have told me that even though these things were happening in broad daylight - no one will stop to help them.

I also wanted you to help me expose how the Metro police were involved in sex trafficking in Nevada.  Mind you - I was part of the press conference in 2007 where we told the world that sex trafficking was happening within the "legal" sex industry of Nevada in ways people aren't realizing.  The public is being brainwashed into thinking street prostitution is sex trafficking - and that's not the case.  The only way I could think of to show what is going on in Nevada, and how law enforcement is part of this - was to ask you to consider doing an "undercover show" on the subject.

I want you to look as a few examples to Kemp Schiffer.  This is a man who started out as an IRS officer who took over management of the Mustang Ranch when Joe had lost it to the IRS for unpaid back taxes.  He got a taste of being a pimp - and then upon realizing that the legal age to work at these brothels is 16 years of age, but the legal age of consent in California is 18 years of age - Kemp knew all he had to do was cross over into cities like Oakland, CA - then take these kids WITH THEIR PARENTS HELP AND CONSENT into Nevada to get them working at the legal brothels.

The IRS learned about how he was taking his badge and office at the IRS and using that to trafficking girls into the brothel from California - and what did they do?  Well it was legal.  So all they could do was fire him.  From there - he became a University of Reno professor.  Now if anyone is wondering why no reports were coming out of UNR that had any semblance to the reality of what was going on inside the legal brothels - well there's your answer.  Kemp was using his job at the college to get access to young women to talk into working at the brothel where he gets a "finders fee", possibly even a percentage, off each women he brings into the ranch.

I know because they've offered me such an arrangement in the past for our "rescue" cases.  No - I'm not kidding.  I once called up Dennis Hof after a pimp threw a pregnant woman out of a car driving 76 mph when she told him because she was pregnant she didn't want to hook any longer.  She was all banged up and I couldn't get anyone at the Salvation Army to take my calls.  So I called Dennis asking for money to pay for her a hotel room for three days.  I had found her a program to go into - but there was a three day gap between when I could get her on the plane.  His answer?  Bring her up there to work for him.  He then told me if I came across anyone else wanting away from a pimp - I'd get a finders fee.  But that's another story.

Kemp by the way used to be a police officer in Hermosa Beach, California.  Which is how he knew Chris Butler.  If you've ever seen an episode of Ray Donovan where they show how the cops set up this guy at a bar, drugged him, then a cop pulls him over and blackmails him - that's Chris Butler.  Not only did he run women out of massage parlors he owned - but he was also the largest and most respected private investigator in the country at one time.  He was even on the Dr. Phil show promoting his "Charlie's Angel's".  These were female detectives he advertised that he would use as "sting decoys" to see if a woman's husband was cheating.  There aren't a lot of those kind of clients however.  The reality is that these "investigator's" were also being used to set up rich and powerful men into blackmail.

Now Kemp is connected to Chris who is also connected to the most respected active duty cops in California.  You'll read about how he was also working with officers in narcotics to get access to the drugs in the evidence rooms.  Then he was reselling the drugs in his massage parlors and using the prostitutes as "mules".   Anyone familiar with the story would have heard the only way this story got busted open was a man working for him went to the press.

Now think - do you think there would have been any other way?  How far do you think a complaint would have gone against one of these officers from someone like us going to their chief saying "hey this guy is taking drugs from your evidence room and then forcing prostitutes in Chris's massage parlors to resell the drugs for them in the parlors so that if anyone does by accident get busted - it's going to be the prostitute and not them?"

Which was also my challenge with "Operation Dollhouse".  Because the drugs and the prostitutes were also being transported into Nevada.  How?  Put into these cop cars so that if stopped - well then it's "evidence".  Complete with the paperwork even!   Now with the 24 women stuck in this house - this was a private residence they were stuck in.  There was no way to do a "john sting" to get anyone into that house because of how they operated.

Read the story here very very very carefully.  Because you'll read that the only way the two cops got there was they were at the airport, they got into a cab, and they asked "where can I get a massage?"  (Well that's the story anyway).  What this meant in reality is that these cabs were being driven by drivers who spoke Mandarin.  Then men coming in from China who spoke Mandarin would get into their cabs because they spoke the language.  The cab drivers would then check their airplane tickets and baggage to see these guys were not undercover cops, or FBI - but actually Chinese businessmen who had just flown into Vegas from China.  Then they were taken into a private home.

Now I ask you - from an undercover point of view - how do you get an agent in there?  Can you get a prostitute in there?  Not unless you got a cop who speaks Mandarin that they got off a plane from China.  Because they only used women they brought over from China - just as is the case with the woman I'm trying to help in Pasadena, California.  Same for being a "john".  How do you get one in when the only way to get into that house was to get off a plane from China?

Which explains how a cab company got charged with "racketeering" by the way -  These cab drivers were the ones who made the the "johns" were coming in off the planes, had air plane tickets, their baggage was ticketed, and then they'd drive them to the spots that by the way WERE NOT ADVERTISED ON BACKPAGE!

Now I know about this because I'm getting women out from under this ring AND I'm having to also HIDE THEM FROM ACTIVE DUTY POLICE and the top investigator IN THE COUNTRY.  Not easy.  So I'm also trying to see what I can do to get the ring shut down.  Not easy when you describe this stuff before the news has come out and you sound like you're "nuts" when you're describing this to people.  I know because when I tried explaining this operation to Terri Miller, the school teacher put in charge of ATLAS in 2007 - she just looked at me like I had three heads!  So know I'm not going to get any help from a woman who doesn't even believe us - I gathered up all of the evidence I was aware of - names, addresses, etc.   Then I went to Chief Gillispie.  Who took my file and said "he'd look into it and get back to me".

The next morning I wake up to a knock on the door.  I have a pregnant prostitute on my doorstep.  I ask her what's going on and she tells me "they shut everything down and threw me out on the street".  I'm like "what?"  She tells me that the "Chief called up and told everyone to shut down, clean up and clear out".  She says they threw her out on the street and told her to "fend for herself" because of her being pregnant - they evidently didn't want to take her along.  So I got her checked into a motel and then went back to all of the houses and the chop shop (another long story) and found that yep - everything was cleared out that I had given Chief Gillispie.

Would anyone believe me?  As it was - I had two cops claiming they wound up in this house "by accident".  Accident my ass. I timed that date to have that reporter in that cop car on the date I knew there was a scheduled drop in Vegas and I had PLANNED on catching a cop in the raid.  I certainly did not think the police would be so bold as to just let TWENTY FOUR VICTIMS just go back with the pimps when even bags of drugs had been found on the property.  But they did.  That's how cocky and bold these people are now!

So Chris Hanson - I wrote you and asked if you could come out to Las Vegas and do a "Vegas Undercover" and film THIS stuff.  This was again before all of this has come out in the news.  You never answered me - but I did get to see you film a "Vegas Undercover" with Chief Gillispie showing you around to what HE WANTED TO SHOW YOU about Vegas.

What blows my mind - is he's now stepped down because of the corruption charges.  But did that mean you shelved the show?  Nope.  I was watching it tonight and getting boiling mad.  So mad I went to write you a pretty nasty note about the show airing - interestingly on NBC - which I've found is the champion of completely false propaganda about sex trafficking since 2003.   As I'm going to fish out your address - I see you're no longer with NBC.

Well good.  I realized you were handicapped by having to film what NBC told you to film.  Now I see you're branching out on your own with trying to get your own financing.  Fantastic!  Maybe now you can start filming the TRUTH about what's going on out here with respect to sex trafficking in the USA today.

If you want to talk - give me a shout.   I really did admire your work with exposing the child predators.  People needed to see what these people are like.  Now maybe we can show what happens on this side of the issue.
