CANARIES IN THE MINE

http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/las-vegas/disbarred-vegas-lawyer-linked-massive-hoa-scheme-dies-federal-custody

In the old mining days - miners used to send a canary into the mine ahead of humans.  If the canary died - they knew there was a gas leakage and to get out of there.  So the term "canary in the mine" is the smallest weakest one is your warning sign.

Hitler didn't rise overnight.  He started out gaining control over the press by attacking the pornographers.  No one cared about them.  So they let the freedom of speech and press go - and he gained control over the media.

He didn't start up with the gas chambers.  He started with a group of disabled and retarded children no one cared about because they were in a home.  No one cared and let it go.  Then he put the Jews into the Ghetto.  When no one complained - then he knew no one would care if they were gone.

"Prostitutes" are the canary in the mine.  Take a look at this case.  Another police officer involved.  A man who was not treated properly in custody.  THIS IS NOT SOME STREET PIMP.  I started this movement so people could see that trafficking, whether it be drugs or sex, ALWAYS involves a corrupt system.  Only we have a system written by our forefather's that WORKS.  The problem is when it's messed with.  WE HAVE GOT TO REPEAL THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS ACT OF 1995 and put the press back in the hands of the people instead of the corporations.  We need the press to shine the light on corruption!

If I had the same press that led to the passing of the Trafficking Act of 2000 - maybe just maybe this situation in Nevada might have been dealt with sooner.  Because there is a system in place in Nevada that is connected to the press, the police, the jails, the attorney's, the politicians - all the way up to the point where we now have an Assemblymen saying he was bullied into voting John Hambrick in as speaker.  Well if anyone had listened to me in 2013 - maybe Chris Edwards might not be complaining now about what happened to him this year.

The same with Lamar. This didn't happen overnight.  I've been telling the world since the 1980's that women are being treated horribly by the sex industry in Nevada - including the so called "legal brothels".  Which is even worse in that those women aren't going to be arrested, nor can they cry "trafficking" to get the authorities involved to help them.  This is why we in Sex Workers Anonymous have always focused on anyone for any reason who wanted help to get out of the sex industry - got it.

When we started building the first case of sex trafficking while a woman worked in the legal Shady Lady - what did they do?  Sold it to Dennis.  All the witnesses, the paperwork, records, everything is just gone.  Her life was threatened and so was mine to the point where we had to leave the state physically to be safe and protect our children.

Lamar, Barry.  People start listening before it's you next.  The Kardashians blew me off when I started calling them two years ago.  They didn't care what happened to these girls.  Well Karma is a bitch isn't it?  Then again maybe this is all God's way of getting people up on their hind legs and GIVE A DAMN.

NEVADA INTERNAL AFFAIRS LETTER

Internal Affairs for Nevada
Via fax and emai

Dear Sirs:

Back in 1988 – I did a Sally Jesse Raphael show where I appeared against Joe Conforte, the previous owner of the Mustang Ranch brothel. He brought with him four prostitutes who worked at the ranch – and for an hour the audience heard this was a “victimless crime” and how much “money they were making”. The purpose of the show was Joe was trying to get his brothels expanded into California and outside of the small rural communities that these legal brothels operate out of in Nevada spread across the state.

When the camera was off – I had one of these women run up to me in the dressing room begging for help to escape. She claimed she had been drugged, then placed on a charter plane at gunpoint (there's a landing strip at the ranch), where she was told to say what she said “or else”. Her fear was because she said other women were “disappearing” into the night and that Joe was physically abusive to the girls. Luckily, the show was being filmed in Chicago. I was working with Genesis House up there at the time so we staged a fake ambulance call to get her out of the studio and placed with them (they don't exist any longer).

Clearly I'm concerned about what this woman is telling me. I then started calling the police who were in charge of that area in 1988 and received nothing but the brush-off. Now I understood that because of the very reason I was on that talk show in the first place. Society didn't believe that sex trafficking was real – or that women could be victim of force and coercion in the sex industry. Not when the “Happy Hooker” was on the best seller list back then and musicals were being made starring Dolly Pardon singing about “down on the chicken ranch – nothing dirty's going on”.

So I packed up my family, shut down my business, and sold off my real estate in 1996 and moved to Nevada so I could help them. Mind you this was before the Trafficking Act of 2000 was passed that even gave sex trafficking federal recognition. I knew that my calling for help was going to be received about the same as if I called up saying “little green men were forcing women into sex work” back in the 80's and 90's. Meaning that if anyone was going to help – it was going to be me and not law enforcement.

I had gotten to know Sharnel Silvey at this point. She used to be a madam at the Mustang Ranch before Joe fled the country and the IRS took over the ranch about 1992. Sharnel got clean from drugs, left sex work, became a caretaker by day, joined a local church – and we started the first alternative sentencing program in all of Nevada with her taking the helm in northern Nevada. I held down the fort on the southern Nevada end of the state. Working together – her and I tried to get help not just to someone being forced to work in the sex industry – but to anyone who wanted help to exit the industry. She was then “set up” in my opinion on a theft charge that shut down the program.

Why shut it down? The stories we were hearing out of these women about law enforcement's treatment of them wasn't exactly “flattering” when it came to helping them when they were in trouble. I'm going to invite you to listen to Aubrey's interview at www.leavingtheliferadio.com She was working at the Shady Lady brothel that's now closed. Aubrey claims that when an officer would come down weekly to pick up the HIV test results – that she would be drugged by this officer, and then raped. Further, that this was done in exchange supposedly for not picking up any “real” test results from the girls. This isn't just an issue about her being drugged and raped – but one of a threat to the public health and safety.

So what do I want to do about it? At that time, I went onto the internet to find out who I could complain to about this officer. At that time, the website said that I had to take all Internal Affairs complaints to the CHIEF. However, at that time, the chief was the officer in question. Now what do I do about this? I don't know – you tell me. Go to the Attorney General? The Attorney General was trying to get AB67 passed about this time and doing everything possible to avoid speaking to me. To the point where even when our group read a letter to the Attorney General on the legislature floor – she then lied to the press saying there was “no objection” to AB67. So who do I complain to about this? No idea.

Look – I'm just a recovering addict, sex worker, and survivor. What I do well how to do is I help others to leave the sex industry and find recovery also. That's what I do. I'm not a cop. I'm not an attorney. I'm not a political science major nor a politician. I shouldn't have to have some kind of advanced degree or connections in order to register a complaint against an officer. Nor should anyone with a complaint either.

Now I invite you to look at the site for Reno Nevada now with respect to Internal Affairs. http://www.reno.gov/home/showdocument?id=26107 I can assure you the LAST thing we're going to do to make this complaint is her and I go waltzing into the police station where this guy worked. You have a phone number for a victim to call. However, this woman has two small children who are home and awake during the day. The only time she's going to want to CALL = would be after hours. Also, to be honest – calling leaves her voice on the recording. If she was going to have bothered calling – she's not going to call and have the officer recognize her voice. Yet nowhere on the site is there simply an email address for her to make an anonymous report. Of course it also says “write to the Chief”. Yeah right. I'm sorry but my understanding about Internal Affairs is that it's supposed to be someone you can report an officer to – not someone who is going to cover for another officer.

Which is what happened to me when I started dealing with victims of Kemp Schiffer and Chris Butler. Those are the names I can mention publicly because they're now been arrested and found guilty. However, I want you to think about the position I was in getting calls from women they were victimizing BEFORE this happened. Both of these men were part of a very large crime ring that was/is networking itself across the USA. Las Vegas is only one stop on the network. A network that if you read up on how Chris operated – you'll see that I was dealing with the cops and private investigators as part of this operation. The drugs, guns, money, and even the women are transported in police/sheriff cars. That way they're not stopped. Genius right? Especially when you're putting on all kinds of public events pointing the fingers at street pimps as the “real traffickers”.

So genius that when I went to Chief Gillespie about the information that I had – names, addresses, phones numbers, etc. and gave him the file to do something about this the very next morning I had a pregnant woman on my doorstep. When I asked her what was going on - she told me that the “chief had come in at midnight clearing everyone and everything out”. Describing to me even the walls were cleaned with bleach to remove any fingerprints or evidence in the brothels & drug houses. After putting her into a motel – I then went to check all the addresses I'd given the chief to find – everything had been cleaned out.

EXCEPT the Asian operation. This was Asian women in private homes speaking only Mandarin. I can't knock on the door of these homes and say “do you need help” like I could at a massage parlor or a strip club. We couldn't even get a “fake john” into the house because they were only accepting men getting off the plane from China getting into cabs at the airports with plane tickets as clients. So what am I to do? I looked on the Metro Internal Affairs website at that time in 2007 – and there was no IA at all. There was a website that said “due to a lack of funding” there was no Internal Affairs.

So I went to a friend who was a reporter and “Operation Dollhouse” went down. Then I saw 24 women sent back to their pimps despite bags of drugs being found in that house simply to make a case go away against two officers from San Mateo that was EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TRYING TO GET EXPOSED.

So now what? I turned to Terri Miller who was director of ATLAS who told me that “making complaints about the police was not her job”. Especially since Metro had just given the Salvation Army $370,000 – I bet. So I went to the FBI and got threatened with a 5150 if I didn't “back off”. Which was a great position to be in when I had fresh information coming in on the Jessie Foster case. I went to the detective listed on her page as being in charge of Jessie's case. He didn't return my calls. I went to Terri who again blew me off. I went to the DA's office – only to run into David Shubert who has since died from a drug overdose.

Now for years I've been getting calls from prostitutes needing help because of a lot of good cops. Cops who were handing out our cards to prostitutes they'd meet who said they needed help. So at one point in time – I had seven women who wanted to step up to testify against the men involved in the same ring as Kemp and Chris (this was before they got arrested mind you). They asked me to find out if they could be safely protected if they testified against an officer, a judge, a city councilman, etc. I was also talking to Jeane Palfrey then who was releasing names in her “Black Book”. While releasing names – she was not talking about who was doing what. Not until she could figure out if she could be made safe if she did. A valid concern if you look up the position those strippers in that DEA owned strip club in NJ are in. If one of them is killed or disappears – I have no way of knowing. Which is what many of these women look to me as – someone who will know if they go missing and do something about it because I won't shut up.

Lois Lee suggested I go talk to Vic Vigna. I called asking if he would show me what steps could be taken to protect a witness who wanted to testify against an officer, politician, judge, etc. He agreed to meet with me to show me. At the meeting where he showed up wearing an FBI t-shirt – he then asked me if I wanted to be a paid informant. Then after asking me if I knew anything about street pimps (which was not the point of the meeting) – he then blew me off – refusing all future phone calls because I said I didn't want to become a paid informant. When I went back to speak to these women – a few of them laughed saying they'd had some less than nice “encounters” with Vic and they weren't surprised I was treated this way.

When Lt. Karen Hughes took over – I thought things would change. What changed was the cops who were giving out our number to prostitutes they'd meet who wanted help suddenly came to a halt. Then Mayor Goodman had threatened all Metro officers if they even spoke to me – they'd be fired. This was when he was trying to get a brothel put in where the Mob Museum now sits. I was now getting calls from cops telling me that anyone who would even mention my name, especially in a good light – was finding themselves being run right off the force or fired. Okay what do we do about it? I go online to find that Karen is also head of Internal Affairs. She's also part of the Southern Nevada Sex Trafficking Task Force.

A task force that I tried to get help from when I was finding out about underage trafficking in Nevada. I have documentation showing of multiple attempts to reach out to Karen at Metro, and to the task force, about underage trafficking I had learned about – and getting no response back. Now – who am I going to complain to about this when she's on Internal Affairs?

Last week I got a call from Officer Bolzack (I don't know if that's the right spelling). This officer said that since Karen Hughes is “no longer with Metro there's nothing he can do”. When asked who replaced her with Vice or the task force – he said he “had no idea”. Funny. This is an officer supposedly from Internal Affairs who doesn't know who is the head of Vice in Las Vegas? Seriously?

I'm still getting calls from prostitutes in Las Vegas telling me one thing or another about officers. I'm hearing about raped, beatings, threats, intimidation, blackmail – the whole nine here. I'm also still hearing about officers who are working for this trafficking network that is still operating with a few new players.

The reason for the RICO act is because you could arrest a few men – and the operation continued. Men like Kemp Schiffer and Chris Butler have been arrested yes – but the operation is continuing on. I've now built up information about the heads of this operation that is based out of Pasadena, California. I know why too – because everyone is telling me they “can't do anything” until there's a police report written up out of Pasadena, California. Easy to say when witnesses are being drug out of their homes by Pasadena officers and having fake charges slapped on them signed by Pasadena judges. Easy to say when trying to help them I'm getting threatened by a Pasadena Officer.

When I escalated this to get a return call from the Chief of Pasadena Police about the situation – I then witnessed all these private investigators staging what appeared to be the building of yet another 5150 campaign on me. One where if I walk into the Pasadena police to file a complaint about anything or anyone – I'm going to be the one carted off. Now no offense – but after what happened to Sandra Bland who was also complaining about the police I'm not touching that one with a 10 foot pole.

So Karen Hughes is with the Wynn now. So what? The reason I started the modern day sex trafficking movement is because our system was not set up to address sex trafficking WITHIN OUR CURRENT SYSTEM. Back in the 1980's I was witnessing sex trafficking during Iran Contra. This meant the men involved were police, politicians, diplomats, judge's, prosecutors', etc. Men who knew how to make evidence disappear – again as we saw with the file burning and Iran Contra. There are no system then for me to go to with what I saw happening to put a stop to it – and THAT'S what I wanted to change.

Now I look at Metro's page for Internal Affairs for Las Vegas. I have emails from Metro officers telling me they're afraid to even mention my name or they'll find themselves being thrown right out of the force. That's a problem. Now I ask you – where are they going to go to file a complaint about the fact they're being intimidated? The information on your website hasn't changed when it still shows Karen Hughes as the person in charge over there for north Las Vegas (where most of this is going on). If IA doesn't know that Lt. Spencer is in charge of Vice and I can find that out on Google – it tells me your IA Dept. is pretty much out of touch. Now Karen didn't act in a vacuum. Other officers acted with her. And I'm not hearing out of Officer Bolzack anyone really seems to care about that fact either.

I want to know where I can go and have complaints about officers actually investigated and not find myself on the other end of the threats. I am not alone either. I've got a couple of files on my desk from tax paying citizens of other cities where a sex trafficking victim came to them for help. They went to the police – and they got threatened. Serpico himself is reported to be living in a cabin off the grid because of threats he's receiving from police. He's stated we have a “serious problem” with Politico Magazine. So I'm not just ranting and raving about little green men here.

Now I want to know what's going to be done about this?

LAS VEGAS METRO, VIC VIGNA, KAREN HUGHES AND SOUTHERN NEVADA SEX TRAFFICKING TASK FORCE

In 2006, Melissa Farley was asked to do a report about sex trafficking in Nevada.  Since we were the only group she was aware of who was actually working with anyone exiting sex work, and sex trafficking (there is a difference) in Nevada, she contacted me for help.  She wanted to interview women who had come through Nevada whether legal or illegal sex work, and whether trafficked or just exiting the sex industry for the report.  So I agreed to work with her.  The report I was told was to get the funding approved to set up a program in Nevada to help trafficking victims  That to get grant money made available - we had to first prove the problem existed as well as the need for help.  Okay I agreed.

Hearing about me working on this report, I then got a visit from Adam Freer from the Salvation Army in August of 2006.  He said he could not find anyone that was working with prostitutes in Nevada other than myself, nor could he find anyone that WANTED to work in Nevada with these victims either that had any experience.  I asked him "do you want me to help prostitutes or do you want to save trafficking victims?"  To which he said "the grant money is to save trafficking victims".  I looked at this budget and said I could help him but I needed TWO more things from him to be able to do the job they wanted done.

First, I said I needed money in the budget to hire a translator.  Most victims I was aware of with respect to sex trafficking did not speak English.  Mandarin, Korean, Russian, etc. but not English.  I explained I could not question every man and woman arrested for prostitution without a translator.  Because this was how the grant was originally structured - to question every prostitute arrested to see if they needed help or if they were there by choice.  I also explained I wanted to go do outreach in the massage parlors and I knew these women did not speak English.

I also said I needed the name of an agent who would be willing to arrest a Metro officer, or a judge, or a city councilman  I explained that in my experience most trafficking was being aided by, protected by, or even done by someone in authority such as the Chris Butler and Kemp Schiffer cases have born out.  I told him I wasn't going to ask a woman if she was being trafficked - and then when she would tell me officer so and so was her pimp - I needed to have someone willing to arrest another officer that I could call.  I say that because most officers won't arrest one of their own  They protect each other because of the "brotherhood".  We saw this in the movie "Serpico" if you don't know what I mean by that.

Adam agreed and said he would go back to Washington and get the budget and the name and get back to me.  He was promptly fired.  Only I didn't find out about this until I opened up a newspaper in February of 2007 to read how a school teacher named Terri Miller had taken the job as "director of ATLAS" - the trafficking task force job.  When I called her up to introduce myself - she had no idea who I was.  So whoever hired her - she had not even been told I existed - let alone I had been promised the job by Adam months ago.  That's when she told me Adam was no longer with the Salvation Army.

Then came the Operation Dollhouse arrests.  Terri called me up and said "let's go" and we were down at the Salvation Army 20 minutes later only to be told the women had just been sent home.  When I asked to see their case files - we were told "we didn't make any because we didn't book them">  When I asked for the address of the house - they said "we didn't make a file because we didn't book them".  We raised a stink because the grant specifically said we were supposed to question everyone arrested for prostitution - and here these women had been let go before we could ask them anything.  

The result?  Metro gave the Salvation Army a $370,000 grant to "restructure" ATLAS.  This meant that Terri was not allowed to even speak to a victim, or suspected victim, unless Vic Vigna, who was head of Vice at that time, gave her the referral directly.  I asked because I'm getting calls on our hotline constantly from people telling me of victims, or they are victims, or they need help, etc  She told me that I could only get help from ATLAS if Vic cleared it.  

Okay problem with that is that the people who call me again were victims of rings like the one Chris Butler and Kemp Schiffer were running.  Meaning when they run - they're now running from police, the IRS, etc.  So the big question is "how do you protect a victim from harm if they're going to make a case against their trafficker?"  Because I was told in order for Vic to clear a victim to refer to Terri to get help from ATLAS (which meant things like free housing, free medical, free rehabilitation, free counseling, and even witness protection), that a case had to be filed against the pimp or trafficker.

So for a victim of trafficking to ask me "if I make a report to Vic - will I be protected until I make it to trial?" is a reasonable question especially after what happened to Margo Compton when she turned against the traffickers.   Granted, this was in 1977 but it still sent a powerful message that if you're going to testify against anyone in the Hell's Angel's - you'd better be sure you're going to be safe.  http://www.nytimes.com/1994/07/31/us/oregon-jury-convicts-man-in-4-killings-linked-to-hell-s-angels.html

Now you may know that the woman who testified at the Nevada legislature in 2013 was speaking about being trafficked inside the Shady Lady brothel which was owned by Hell's Angel's.  I can say that openly now where this was happening because the case is no longer being put together.  The Shady Lady shut down and was bought by Dennis Hof  Meaning the witnesses to her being forced to work there, her rapes, etc. have all been scattered.  I'm not even sure we can even prove she even worked there in the first place now that they've been closed down  

But if you listen to her story at www.leavingtheliferadio.com - you'll hear that she wanted not only to file charges against her pimp for forcing her to work as a prostitute from 12 years on, and not only because he drug her and forced her to work in a legal brothel once she turned 15 years old so he couldn't be prosecuted for pimping - but she also wanted to charge the cop who was drugging and raping her weekly when he would come to pick up the HIV test results (supposedly).

Now before I'm going to tell Aubrey that she can go to Vic and make a report and be kept safe - I told her I'd find out where the victims were going to be kept.  Because if she was going to just be put in the Salvation Army - these guys would find her in two seconds.  The same for her home - they knew where she lived.  So I called up Vic and asked if he would show me what steps they take to protect victims that are reporting trafficking that involves corruption.  He agreed and told me to meet him at a Starbucks.  I also told him I didn't want to be seen meeting with and talking to a cop  I promise our members "anonymity" and I don't want anyone thinking I'm "ratting" on anyone if they see me in a coffee shop talking to a cop.  He told me "don't worry I know how to be discrete".

He showed up at the meeting wearing an Metro ball cap and an FBI sweatshirt.

Then he asked me if we could go outside to his car.  I thought that meant he was going to show me how he would protect these witnesses.  Instead he puts me in a car with three other agents and proceeds to grill me like I've just been arrested.  He starts pumping me for what I know about these women.  I don't know anything - I don't ask them.  All I'm doing is seeing if they'll be safe IF they TALK TO HIM.  That's what he agreed to show me - how he protected witnesses.  Instead he yells at me and grills me to the point where I'm flashing back to my arrest days and my PTSD starts kicking in and all I can think of is I want out of that car  

Then he asks me "do you want to be a paid informant?"  I said no - and he tells me "call me tomorrow" and throws me out of the car.  I asked "will you show me the information you promised me tomorrow?"  He said "yes".  

The next day no one ever answered the phone nor returned my calls.  

I went back to these women and then they all started laughing.  I said "what's so funny?"  They then proceeded to tell me stories of supposedly Vic trading sex with prostitutes to let them off being arrested.  Then I speak to a private detective who tells me the prostitutes he knows are telling him the same thing.

Well if that's true - then Metro is NEVER going to refer one victim/prostitute to ATLAS because he'll be busy covering his ass.  So I go to Terri and ask her  "Has Vic ever given you ONE referral?"  to which she says "no".  I then said "don't you think that's strange?"  She said "I"m not his keeper."  I then asked her "how many prostitutes are they arresting a day?"  To which she said "not my job".  Now mind you ATLAS has now received $870,000 and $370,000 that I'm aware of in grants and "that's not her job?"

Okay I table the whole thing until I get calls from prostitutes giving me leads on the Jessie Foster case.  I go into that on another blog posting.  

Speed ahead - at the end of the year ATLAS has not served ONE victim of trafficking.  The task force is defunded and shut down. 

I'm then told Karen Hughes, who used to be a police typist in dispatch, has now been made head of vice.  I think "great - a woman"  Wrong.  I reached out to Karen when I first heard she'd taken over as head of vice which was sometime early 2008 - and she wouldn't return my calls.  I wrote her emails asking to speak to her, introducing myself, letting her know I was the person who was gave the press conference and co-wrote the report on "Trafficking in Nevada - Making the Connections", etc. 

Now, with a woman in vice these victims are thinking maybe she'll be different  So Aubrey asks me to see what they can do for her if she files charges.  She can't file charges in northern Nevada because those are the cops who raped her.  Yes, the Chief is the one who collected the HIV tests, and the Chief is also head of Internal Affairs in northern Nevada - so she can't go to them.  So I write Karen and let her know I have women who are victims who would like to know what can be done to protect them if they file charges - and I get no answer.

When trafficking bill AB67 was going to the Nevada legislature - I reached out to Karen again.  I sent her a copy of the letter that was read at the legislature about how we felt about AB67 and what we would like to see done to help us get help.  

Her response finally?  "Take me off your mailing list".  Okay - yes I've saved those emails and phone logs to show the attempts I've made to reach out to Karen Hughes - with no response.  Including when I tried to make a report about underage trafficking going on inside a car lot on Boulder Highway to the task force and received no response.  I wrote her again anyway asking for help.  After no one responded back to me - I went ahead and took those girls to the bus and sent them to Children of the Night.  

Recently, I complained about Karen in this blog.  In response to that complaining - our hotline got this call from Officer Boznack (I don't know if that's the right spelling) from Internal Affairs this morning.  http://www.mediafire.com/watch/06m4hwp4xpzsa04/Metrocall.mp4

If you don't want to wade through the whole phone call it goes basically like this - Karen Hughes is no longer head of Vice therefore we can not take any action against her for any claims (I have emails from other cops claiming she would "run officers off the force if they tried to help trafficking victims or gave them SWA's phone number or spoke highly of me in any way" - and I think it's very wrong that when I'm trying to reach her to give her information on open cases, or to come help or investigate a trafficking case she blows me off).

When asked who was her replacement - he said "I don't know".  He tells us to "call Vice".  Well Vice isn't going to reveal information on their agents.  Their standard routine is to tell us to call the Press office who will then tell us "until we get a press release we don't know".  How do I know this?  Because that's what they did to us for a year when we tried to find out how to get in touch with the task force, and who the new director was  

I basically asked for help in speaking to whoever her replacement is so that things can change and he tells me as a man in Internal Affairs that "he has no idea who is in charge of Vice".  You're kidding me right?   Internal Affairs does not know who her replacement is?  Plus, when exactly was the world going to be told she's no longer in position there of any kind and retired?

If you google Karen Hughes right now, today, you'll find this about her:





Looks to me like she's STILL head of Vice, STILL head of Internal Affairs for N. Las Vegas, and STILL on the trafficking task force to me anyway  

Now like me or not - I operate the ONLY hotline in this country that is national, that is for male and female adults, and that is for ANYONE exiting the sex industry NOT JUST trafficking victims.  While Polaris is taking calls from trafficking victims - I'm taking calls from anyone who wants to leave for any reason.  Not just prostitution - but the sex industry.  Meaning porn performers, strippers, prostitutes, escorts, madams, strip club owners, massage parlor owners, porn producers, etc.   This makes me the OLDEST and LARGEST hotline for adults in the country.

Like me or not - that's a fact.  Now - every "crazy" claim I've made has proven to be true.  There WERE 24 Chinese women in that house with TWO COPS and bags of drugs in Operation Dollhouse  Kemp Schiffer WAS an IRS Agent who was trafficking girls into Nevada from California.  Cab drivers were being used by the trafficking ring as was proved by their arrest.  Chief Gillispie has stepped down because of corruption charges.  The prosecutor, David Schubert, died of a drug overdose proving he was on drugs at the time he was in office.  This means that every "crazy" claim I've made about what's going on in Nevada has proven to in fact be true INCLUDING that we rescued victims of a trafficking operation that had Snoop Dogg connected to it during his tour that I was saying happened YEARS before he confessed to this in Rolling Stone.

Including the "crazy" claim I was making that Chong Kim, Samoly Mam and Bill Hilliar were FAKES. That proved to be true as did Gigolo's prove to be actors and Annie Lobert's Destiny House not opening in reality also proved out to be true.  

So please - out of all the "crazy" claims I've been accused of making EVERY SINGLE ONE of the has proven out to be true.

Now this call we got today was from Nevada's Internal Affairs  Granted, Karen Hughes might not still be in office. But the fact remains I've had phone conversations with officers, and I've got emails from officers in Metro who reported to me they were "chased off the force" for even speaking about us or to us and they were forced to work with us in secret because of Karen.  Now SHE DID NOT DO THIS ALONE.

When I was trying to get fresh information looked in the Jessie Foster case - I also had other detectives assigned to that case who REFUSED to look at FRESH information and to speak to FRESH witnesses on that case coming into our hotline  What about them?  Are they still on the force?

Either way I didn't exactly hear from this phone call that Internal Affairs is that interested in rooting out any wrong doing in their department with respect to Vice or even Homicide.

Nor are they telling me who Internal Affairs might be for Pasadena, California or Phoenix, Arizona either.  Two cities where I also have complaints against officers I'd personally like to file but no one wants to  give me a straight answer as to where to go to file such a complaint.  

I do know this - Aubrey said that the officer who was collecting the HIV test results at the Shady Lady was drugging her and raping her.  Now is he still in office?  Since we "can't do anything about someone who isn't in office anymore" what about him?  Does his office handle Internal Affairs for where the Shady Lady was located - or is that still going under the Chief's office?  Because when her and I looked it up online - it was the same man who was Chief at that time in 2013.  

Now for whoever did take over Karen's job - I would like to try and have a better relationship with you than I had with Karen.  You can reach me at www.sexworkersanonymous.com  I'm going to follow up this blog with trying to find out who you are and send you an introduction email. I'd like you to see the "Code Red" we put out for Nevada.   

Thank you.
