The program we operate has members coming to us who can't come to the police because either there is no trafficker to have arrested, or because the person who trafficked them might even be the police.  Take for example the case of Celeste Guap.  Let's say you were her and you wanted to leave.  The news has released information she was told by one officer when and where NOT to be in order NOT to have any contact with any of the trafficking outreach projects their task force was operating.

Which by the way proves MY POINT that REAL trafficking victims aren't found in such a manner as the fact remains REAL traffickers always either are the police, or have police informants, and thus would be so tipped off by such outreach projects and that's why we don't conduct our outreach in such manners - but let me go back to my main subject here.  Which is we have members like Celeste, like Jeane Palfrey who was trying to get the word out about who was trafficking her as evidenced by her "Black Book", by women who have slept with Charlie Sheen who has admitted to now having spent literally MILLIONS trying to "keep his secret quiet".  Who signed with Live Nation by the way in 2013 - the same exact year the Cupcake Girls formed in Nevada and started smearing our name in Nevada in guess which year?  2013.  Whose lobbyist just so happens to be the SAME as to one for - drum roll please - Live Nation.  Interestingly also for Snoop Dogg - a man who we've also helped women escape his rolling brothel in 2003 who the police have yet to arrest for pimping or pandering despite his confession now giving enough evidence to warrant on a arrest on either or one of these charges.  Willing consent even and legal age doesn't negate these felony laws were violated.  But hey he's got a whole PR team and also Live Nation on his side.  Along with companies now known as hiring "online influencers" to do their dirty work.  Heck Craigslist will even pay you $100 a day or more sometimes just to "borrow" your Facebook page and pretend to be a real person while they go after their real agenda - like attacking us the day we launched

So then why are people saying we're "being crazy" when we started talking about finding a private investigator online who would be following our every movement using our IP address to track these movements?  Then after finding out everyone we'd spoken to online, they would then go to this person, ask questions about us, and then after pumping them for information they'd then threaten them with a "if you value your reputation you won't have anything to do with her because she's "unpredictable".  I don't know when this exactly became a bad thing to be "unpredictable" considering most of what I do is help women organize rescue and escape plans from traffickers where if you were "predictable" then you wouldn't exactly be effective, but I wander again here.

When I would then serve one private investigator with a threat to file a complaint with the licensing board, along with a defamation lawsuit, yes they would immediately roll up shop and stop.  However, only to be replaced in five minutes.  Meaning this wasn't someone who had a personal grudge against me - but clearly was because someone was either PAYING them to do so - or there was a common interest of some kind.

Now since I found every private investigator who was talking, harassing, and threatening people connected to me was also working in some capacity on a sex trafficking task force, a committee, etc., where the police are a direct recipient of federal grants and fund raisers - where money which was designed to be going to service victims rehabilitation is now instead going to "police training" not to get the victims to open up to exit services by the way but to instead show them how to "arrest more traffickers" (which if you look at the training created NONE OF IT addresses traffickers such as Joohon David Lee or Chris Butler represent - every single scrap of education coming out of the programs being taught to law enforcement doesn't have ONE SHRED of information about what to do when the trafficker is another police officer, or a Homeland Security Officer, or an ICE officer, or a police officer such as in the Celeste Guap case, etc.)

So what's the motive here?  For one thing, the money going to the police for their "training" was supposed to be going into building exit and rehabilitative services for victims.  Not for cops to be taught how to target African American and Hispanic men on street corners as "traffickers", nor to replace good old fashioned "john stings" with the name of "end demand" and operate in the same exact manner as before without one shred of consideration for the fact the person not only the MOST likely to know where sex trafficking exists within that region, AND who has the mental and financial stability to be a much better witness in court than the victim IS the "john".

So my opinions would mean the training could go back to being provided to them for free by our members as was done before this whole scrapping for grant money came down the pike, and that money could be going into services for the victims or heavens forbid teaching police officers how to be "interventionists" instead of trying to arrest people as well as how to turn "johns" into informants rather than the victims whose lives, and that of their children, are holding in the balance here.

The training we would provide would also include what to do in the very real situation that it's another officer involved in the trafficking they're now having to figure out how to deal with it.  I've asked the airport security people to see their training that teaches them how to identify a victim, and how to report sex trafficking and there's not one single shred, sentence, or word in there about what to do when the trafficker is someone like Joohon David Lee - a man working for Homeland Security, ICe and the sex trafficking task forces in California and Nevada as well as Alaska when he had problems there in 2009.

The reason?  There's "no law on the books yet" as to how someone like him can be arrested.  So does this mean the training doesn't include how to report it?  Is that it?  Are we seriously limiting the training by what the law says a trafficker is rather than what one is and about helping victims?  When is it we only help victims when we can arrest someone?  Yes ideas like that are so dangerous this right here probably explains why private investigators who are friends with the trafficking police task forces who are dependent and scrapping for grant money are coming after me trying to shut me down like I'm the friggin enemy here.

Which is exactly what the traffickers want.  This is why Jeane Palfrey was trying to show people why Randall Tobias' name was in her "Black Book" and why he was the author of the TVRA of 2003 who then had everyone focusing on going after grant money now instead of going after saving the victims of this crime, and helping those to exit who simply wanted out.

I mean let me tell you something - after you've got a completely screwed up neck from 10,000 blow jobs like I have, and your knees are literally blown out from dancing in heels and also being on your knees a lot, don't even get me started on how bad my back is according to my latest MRI, and your immune system is shot from having sex work well over 25,000 men as I have, and you've contracted Chronic Fatigue Syndrome which has now infected over 80 percent of the porn industry in California to date, so you wind up at 25 years old wearing tennis shoes, barely able to nod your head and throwing dinner together on a Foreman Grill because you're too exhausted to cook a meal and you're walking around with a heating pad on your lower back all the time - then yeah it's time to get out of the sex industry and one might need a little help going from $500,000 a year to a friggin office job at $10 an hour!!!

And the last thing I need is some private investigator harassing me online when I'm trying to talk to the CDC about the fact all of the calls we're getting lately are from those who have never been tested for HIV/AIDS ever because sex workers aren't getting that type of training any longer because everyone's out looking for "trafficking victims" instead of servicing the needs of sex workers who don't even know what that term means because it was invented by politicians who couldn't say the word "prostitute" without gagging - and those who are coming back with their test results being positive are telling me that we're now back in the same epidemic we were in during the 1980's.

Only we had the LGBT community to blow the whistle and alert the world through men like Elton John and Elizabeth Taylor back then - only right now the only ones I'm seeing coming down with this are the prostitutes.  So no they're not going to be organizing any protests or marches because they're too busy trying not to get their asses arrested!  Leaving me having to try and get through to the CDC we have a problem going on here right now and then I'm finding they're too scared to talk to me because private investigators like Sandra Woodall are calling them up saying "oh don't talk to Jody because she's crazy".

Yeah right.  And this guy was imagining he was set up too I bet huh?  I guarantee you if some PI would do this over a contract that small - the stuff I'm talking about being in the millions is more than enough to warrant why my statements this is happening to me are not only true - but "standard operating procedure" for these guys.

Especially when I'm having cops tell me "off the record" they're being threatened with their families being harmed if they step up to help any of these women and kids being prostituted.  Well this is how it's being done.

Stories like this are why we've been getting nothing but the runaround for YEARS about bringing meetings into the jails.  To blame me, to attack me personally, to try and laugh off our program, etc., or any of the lame excuses they're using to put us on the outside of being able to hold these meetings does way more than affect just women like this one who was sexually assaulted within the system by a guard.  This article says they "know and don't do anything about it".

They do more than just "ignore" the situation.  Our meetings are preventative.  I can guarantee you that guards will think twice about sexually assaulting a woman they know is coming into our meetings once a week, and into contact with people from the outside.  Just our presence alone within the jail can help to prevent these kinds of attacks.

Second, it REDUCES the number of women who have no other recourse than to go seek an attorney once they're released.  Which by the time valuable evidence could be destroyed which could either prove he's guilty, or that he's innocent for that matter.  If for example one of our members was told by a woman such as this that she was sexually assaulted right then and there because of our meetings - then an investigation could be started IMMEDIATELY which might even exonerate the guard because evidence would still be fresh, and witnesses would still be available for either side.  My point being that if they can come to us to talk about what's going on - we might then be able to provide another avenue for them than just having an attorney to go to about what's going on.

I'm the first one to acknowledge that the guard could have been set up by a woman falsely claiming she was raped in order to get a cash settlement.  Maybe her medications are off because of being moved around and she might even be hallucinating.  I'm just as interested in protecting guards from false accusations as I am for making sure predators are shut down.

By us not having meetings inside of the jails, then we can't establish a relationship with these men and women which will help them to re-enter society upon release.  We help them find work, housing, and offer a support network of someone who is clean from drugs and all crime so that they don't have to call up their old pimp or old dealer to take them home once released.  Cutting us out of the equation cuts us out of being able to make sure this person doesn't re-offend.  Which only protects society in the long run.

When I point out stories like this - I'm trying to explain why it's important our program be allowed to bring our meetings back into the jails.  Since they can't "officially" shut us out, it's just a bunch of excuses.  I'm not personally the person who is going to be bringing these meetings in.  I'm just the liaison of our program to the outside work to protect the anonymity of our members.  Women like this one who are terrified their predators are going to seek them out for retribution in many cases who live in fear of being found.  So while she'd make a great sponsor for someone new in recovery - she's not going to be the one to call up the jail petitioning to get our meetings put into the facility.

Not all of these women are "trafficking victims".  Some are just plain up straight "prostitutes".  Our program is for ANYONE, male or female, straight or gay, white or black, from any part of the sex industry who wants to leave for any reason.  To shut us out because of trying to cover up these dirty deeds is only allowing men like this to build their walls of secrecy around them which allow them to continue to abuse more victims.  It also lends towards more false charges against innocent guards as well who might be losing valuable time to gather evidence to protect themselves should these women continue to be forced to wait until their release to file any type of complaint.

It's got to stop.  We have to bring Sex Workers Anonymous back into the jails and prisons of California (we're in jails in other states now).

Revolution, TRUE revolution, doesn't come easy.  When I first formed our program, originally called Prostitutes Anonymous, now called Sex Workers Anonymous, my sponsor gave me an assignment.  He had me study not only the greats of civil rights movements such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X and others, but also the founders of 12 step programs such as Bill Wilson, Jimmy Kinnon, Roy K., Ruby, etc.

Why 12 step programs?  Because before Alcoholics Anonymous was founded, there was no such concept as there could be person with a disease.  Alcohol was viewed simply as alcohol and you either could drink or not.  It was viewed as a choice, and choice only, back before AA.  Only when AA came out, suddenly a person was being recognized who didn't have a choice, and for them to drink was not good.

Also, AA had their opponents.  Opponents who still exist today.  Not just the alcohol industry, but there's also the church.  Before AA the church made a lot of money off sweeping into towns and having people sign "pledges" about sobriety.  There were politicians whose whole platforms were based on the issue of Prohibition.  I even read about one group who would pledge a lot of money to any politician who would support Prohibition.  Then of course you had therapists who called drinking excessively a "poor coping mechanism" who believed that if you taught someone better "coping skills" then they wouldn't drink so much.

AA however was not designed to replace any of those things.  They were designed for those for whom the church, therapists, or even pledges of sobriety weren't sufficient for them.  For people who needed something "different" or even "more" depending upon your viewpoint.

I found an interview with Bill Wilson even talking about how people who were once supporters of his program started pulling away from this position once they realized it wasn't something that could be explained nor bottled for mass consumption.  In other words, no one but another sober alcoholic can lead an AA meeting or sponsor.  Not a therapist, not a priest, not even a "normie" who is sober - can lead an AA meeting or work with newcomers.  Kind of a problem if you're trying to run a shelter or a treatment program for alcoholics if you can't also add in an AA meeting until you find another sober member of AA willing to be the secretary of that meeting.

Which is also the same problem posed by Sex Workers Anonymous.  While there may be a recovering member of SWA living in a certain town, that doesn't mean they're willing to break their anonymity by going to a local shelter or treatment program and offering to run a meeting in their facility.  Nor with the courts, prosecutor, or local police by letting them know about a local SWA meeting for the purposes of alternative sentencing.   We might have a huge meeting in one of those cities - but members who have been in situations, or currently in situations, where they don't want to let the local authorities know what their name is, who they are, or that they were once in the sex industry for any reason - trafficked or not.

If you go online today you'll find quite a large stack of people who aren't thrilled with Bill Wilson.  In fact, some are quite hostile.  The same for Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Malcolm X, etc.  There is no such thing as any revolutionary person of their time who was universally loved and accepted.  The same honestly goes if I even mention a politician's name.  If I speak for example of how much Obama has done to help the trafficking movement - I will be swooped down upon by a horde of people who will tell me about all the horrible things Obama has done.

So a universal law happens to prove true - if you're standing behind someone who doesn't have opposition against them - then you're standing in the wrong line.

Are these people "love and light"?  I watched this documentary on how much this Grace Lee Boggs contributed to the civil rights movement, and stood behind Martin Luther King even after many preachers started excluding him, and how she was so abrupt that she "sometimes made people cry".  Changing views isn't always an easy thing to do.  I also found her words here to be what we as survivors of the sex industry need to take note of as to where we need to be going now we have recognition what is happening to us is in fact real.

Neither is trying to change a system that considers Joohoon David Lee is ONLY guilty of bribery.

I went to the person in this case listed as someone responsible for bringing him in to face charges to ask them about where the arrest is of the man who PAID the bribes.   Joe Jeronimo it appears has now been made a "trainer" for FLETA.

How convenient.

So no I don't agree with "case closed" as the court files say.  I find it even more interesting that his entire case has disappeared right off the Clark County database.  ALL files that have had court dates are normally stored on their database.  But yet I run a search now after his May 23rd sentencing to find out what sentence he got - and I can't now find that information out.

Isn't that public record?  Where did the case go?

Now if you get a call from someone "warning", I mean "threatening" you to "stay away from Jody" because she's "negative" or whatever other name calling they have for me, I just want you to note that person isn't a survivor I'm sure for one thing.  For another, I'm willing to bet they've never even met me in person.  Nor are they going to attack my work because they can't.

All they can do is attack me as a person.

Of which am I a perfect person?

Never said I was.

But that's not the point is it?  There are people who CLEARLY want this Joohoon issue, among other issues, to be forgotten.  I'm not going to let it go.  I wasn't going to let it go when I wrote the Office of Professional Responsibility that I understand was behind his investigation.  Nor when I wrote to the Dept. of Transportation at LAX that this ring was importing in Chinese women who were clearly on guard for that as to why Joohoon then had to personally escort women past them from Korea who the ring switched to trafficking BECAUSE of the exposure I was putting on this case since "Operation Dollhouse".

I'm not going to let it go because the fact remains that we do not have a system yet in place where a victim of someone like Joohoon can call for, and get help.  I want you to notice his arrest did not happen because his victim was able to call 911 and get help to stop what he was doing.

However, victims like her ARE calling our hotline.  And then we have people trying to talk others in the field not to take my calls.

Gee I wonder why?

So again, if you're not standing behind someone in support of their work who doesn't have opposition against them coming as a backlash of them doing things like this - then baby you're not in the right line.

This email is to Mr. Joe Jeronimo who now works for FLETA

Dear Mr. Jeronimo:

I'm writing you about the case involving Joohoon David Lee.  I suspect this case might be connected to a letter I wrote to the Office of Professional Responsibility about a trafficking operation I've been trying to pull victims out from under since 2004.   While you did catch Joohoon, the ring itself is still operating.  So too are other officers like him that I have yet see answering for their crimes.  Officers who are not only threatening their victims, but also threatening me to stop helping them.

Why?  I tend to wonder if Joohoon for example wouldn't have been called into play if not for the letter I sent to the Dept. of Transportation at LAX advising them this ring was bringing in women from China and to be on the "lookout".  It was shortly after this letter the ring switched up to using women from Korea to "go off the radar".  A ring tied to the arrests a few months ago in Seattle, back in 2007 with "Operation Dollhouse" and also the 2009 and 2013 arrests in Wichita, Kansas.  A ring connected to threats I've received from Pasadena police officers being the people connected to the head of this ring reside in Pasadena.

Why Pasadena?  Well they can "fake a homicide case" don't you know?  Even get PETA arrested and chase minorities out of Pasadena for it's "gentrification". Meaning this case doesn't end with Joohoon.

I spoke to Claude Arnold about the fact I still have victims of this ring telling me they can't break free because of how high up the power goes in this trafficking operation and you must admit Joohoon's authority was pretty high.  I was told "someone would get back to me" as I always am told - and no one has yet as always happens.

Now I'm sorry that my work causes embarrassment like this, like it did with people like the case Heather Weyker  was connected to (a case I was telling people for some time was phony), but we have many cases now stacking up about the innocents being thrown into the grinder here to make it appear people are "doing something" but then the REAL traffickers are getting away scot free here.

I didn't start this movement to get pimps arrested.   You want to deal with a pimp back in the 1980's - call 911.  No.  What I did was start this movement because HOW do you leave sex work when it's a cop, a marshall, a sheriff, or a Homeland Security officer, who is trafficking you?  Whose own boss tells people there's "nothing he can do" about the situation?  No I'm sorry but more needs to be done.  And frankly I'm getting real tired of the minute I read anyone like yourself has actually stepped up to do something about this - the next thing I know they're in a different job.  Fine for you - but then I get shoved back to square one of trying to explain to your replacements that yes this kind of thing is real.

I was hoping you were still in your old job that was a part of Joohoon's arrest but now I see you're in "training".  How convenient to now tell me there's "nothing more you can do" about the fact the ring itself IS STILL operating and I STILL have victims I can't get out because of who is involved in this who hasn't been caught yet.

So if you have any ideas on how we can get to the bottom of the ring that Joohoon was only a cog in the wheel of  - I'd love to hear them.  Because I've heard the argument that his trafficking was done while he was "on duty" and therefore he can't be charged with either trafficking nor racketeering, but I find it highly unlikely that he didn't do some of this work while not on the clock.

I'm sorry but where's the arrest of the man who PAID Joohoon?  This case is far from over and I STILL don't have someone getting back to me about what's going to be done about this ring despite dealing with them since 2004 now.  I think I'm being pretty patient don't you?  Especially when for some reason every time I hear we've got another cog in this wheel suddenly it seems like everyone connected to the case retires, get promoted, or transfers to another department.  Leaving people who then don't know me from Adam and the process starts over again.

(By the way why is NO major media reporting on this?  A Homeland Security officer is caught trafficking women and NO ONE in major media is reporting on this?  Why is that?  You want to know about what type of victim CAN'T call the National Trafficking Hotline and maybe call ours instead?  Try someone who was brought over here by a Homeland Security Officer.  THAT'S a victim who can't call the police for help, nor anyone on the trafficking task force, nor anyone in uniform for that matter.

So the million dollar question is then if those victims call our hotline for help then why can't I get anyone to respond to our calls?)

Monday, September 28, 2015


As you know who follow my blog, I'm having problems with police all of the time who are involved in some fashion to sex trafficking. Since I do most of my "face to face" work in California and Nevada - most of the calls I get on the Sex Workers Anonymous hotline is in those two states.

Since 2013,  I've been trying to get someone to talk to me about what's going on in Pasadena, California's police station for a while now because of the "Music" case.  This is a woman who called for help who lives in Pasadena - and claims two Pasadena officers drug her out of her home when she told her traffickers she wanted to leave and they slapped her with two phony prostitution charges.  

I then got my own threats from a man saying he was a Pasadena officer when I was helping her - and then I've had some weird issues with their chief.  For example, he tells me he "didn't return my calls because he's already working with a trafficking group".  Okay - who I ask him? I never got an answer.  When I asked what measures he was going to take about my safety to come in and talk to him in person about this case - I didn't get an answer either.  He's not even asking me the name of the officer who called me.  Now I ask myself "how is he going to make sure I'm safe coming to this meeting if he doesn't even know the name of the officer who called me?  When I ask him about this - he's STILL not asking me the name of the officer.

The Pasadena Police already had an audit ordered when a tape leaked of a detective bragging that they could "fake a homicide" -  which the audit report was done.  It's results?  They need "more money and training".   If you google right now "corruption" along with what's going on in California law enforcement - this is much more than a lack of training going on with these officers.  

Okay the report thing is not getting us anywhere.  Not when a cop is recorded bragging he can "fake a homicide case" and then the station gets a report asking for "more money".  

At the same time, Chief Sanchez is saying he "opposes more oversight".  I bet he does.  When I asked for the qualifications of the person who wrote this report - I couldn't get a straight answer out of anyone.  I noticed for example the last name was the same for the man who prepared the report - Sanchez.  So I asked if they were "any relation".  The answer was "no".  But no matter what kind of digging I did into the background of the man who prepared this report - the best I could come up with is he sold some insurance.  I also find it interesting that in April of 2015 - the report was REDACTED.  I mean THIS was all I could find on "Veritas Assurance Group"  They sell "legal plans" like Prepald Legal.   I couldn't find his resume anywhere when the report was released.  Since then I found this -  Does anyone but me remember what LAPD detectives were like in the 1980's in the Hollywood Narcotics Division by the way?  I do.  

Now I'm going to quote an article about the report itself - In addition to looking at cases handled by Okamoto and Broghamer, the audit "will also examine a cross-section of Detective Bureau reports and criminal case filings to ensure consistency in reporting and that procedure was followed. At the conclusion of the audit, an executive summary will be made available to the public, according to the city.

Now I ask you - what does this have to do with detectives being recorded as saying they can "fake a homicide" for one thing?

Here's another quote about the report:  "The judge found that Detective Okamoto intentionally wrote a report that was misleading," Stein said. "The police reports did not match what the witnesses said."

And:  During the recorded interview of a female witness, Broghamer is heard warning her that her child could be taken from her. Such "duress" is not permitted, Stein said.

Honestly - I don't see what "consistency in reporting" has to do with things like "faking a homicide case" or the problem I've been trying to get someone to look at where a woman was drug out of her home and slapped with two fake prostitution charges (supposedly), and when we tried to get the booking videotape to see what was going on, not only was she threatened again, but so was I and another person.   Nor does this address (1) me getting a call from a man identifying himself to be a Pasadena officer threatening me to "back off" and then (2) when I tried to make contact with the Chief to talk to him about the threat he refused to return my of my calls or emails unless he got pressure from up above him!

I find it especially interesting that the MINUTE the Chief was forced by people above him to speak to me about the case, this weird "5150" campaign starts up against me online that was completely staged.   So if this detective is bragging he can "fake a homicide case" then I'm sure faking a 5150 case is a piece of cake.  ANYONE can be hauled off for a 72 hour "observation".  My only concern at this point is I might wind up a Sandra Bland or another hooked hung from a jail cell.  

Because the MINUTE Chief Sanchez actually is getting pressure to speak to me about this case - suddenly a woman I don't even know is claiming I'm "stalking" her and she's "afraid for her life" and telling people she wants to file a 5150 charge against me.  A woman who just happens to be getting funding through the OC Human Trafficking Task Force - a task force that I'm questioning it's honesty with respect to their connection to Kevin Brown and the whole "8 Minutes" fiasco.  She further goes online making crazy accusations that she's "afraid to leave her house" and asking people where I live so she can "file a charge".  Yeah right I'm going to go waltzing into any police station right now while she's doing this and this Chief is acting so strange.  

So what do I do about it?  I've gone to everyone on up to Senator Kerry and Loretta Lynch - only no one is coming to take a look at evidence I have about a criminal ring where three
 pimps have now been sentenced in Wichita, Kansas, in this ring nor about what's going on with the police, or this money going into the trafficking task force I'm not seeing go anywhere to benefit victims.

Like what am I going to do next?  What do you do when you've got grave concerns about a Chief of Police who is acting weird.  I have googled "Internal Affairs" for Los Angeles and find nothing.  

Then I then read this article closely.  It says there is a "Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau" so I go and google that.  Notice I find information for a Nevada Internal Affairs - but the rest is news stories "about" Internal Affairs.  But yet I can't find any contact information.

The first pdf I find has NO contact information.

I do find 10 sheriff's have been let go for inappropriate behavior within the jails.  

Which I'm just going to point out again WHY most sex trafficking victims can't call 911 for help.  Nor the task forces when they're out executing arrest warrants  I was under the impression that the sex trafficking task force was to help victims of trafficking.  Well now if they're splashing photos of people they arrested for running a brothel they aren't.  First of all, if the brothel IS NOT connected with sex trafficking - I have no idea why then the trafficking task force is arresting those people number one.  Number two, I don't understand why the POLICE aren't doing the arresting if they are not a sex trafficking operation or part of one.  Number three - if they ARE a part of a sex trafficking operation - then arresting them IS NOT treating them like victims.  Now if they're the predators in a trafficking operation - are they the absolute head?  No one else is above them?  Because if someone is above them in the trafficking operation - and they just blasted their photo online like this - they just signed a death warrant out for them by the traffickers who will be wanting to shut them up before they talk.  So I COMPLETELY don't understand WTF is going on with the trafficking task force arresting two people in this illegal brothel case in Vegas.  

Back to California, I'm trying to figure out who is who I'd talk to about problems with the Pasadena Police.  In Google, I found a budget that's paid by the Board of Supervisors -

In going through these budgets - I see a lot of money going to 'Operation Safe Streets" but they arrest gang members, not investigate corrupt cops.  So this doesn't appear to be about investigating cops anyway..

This appears to be Internal Affairs for Los Angeles City Police -  But that's not Los Angeles county nor Pasadena, California.  That appears to be the city of Los Angeles.  This budget shows a Michael Egan with the Internal Criminal Investigations Bureau - not Internal Affairs.   I don't know if Michael Egan is a detective, or the actor who filed fake sexual abuse charges.  Either way - I still see now contact information for this unit.  

So how do I find out how to reach these people?  Board of Supervisors?   They don't respond to my request to speak to them about this case either.  Not since I'm also trying to file a complaint against how the Board heard two people talking to them on July 14, 2015 about sex trafficking cases they said "no one was following up on" and when I checked with the board - no one knew what I was talking about - so then guess what?  NO ONE IS FOLLOWING UP on those charges just like the people who appeared said then!  

Okay now what?  So who now do I write to in order to complain about the Board of Supervisors green lighting millions of dollars to "fight sex trafficking" yet when TWO PEOPLE come right into their meeting to report sex trafficking TO THEIR FACE and they do nothing.   So who do I go and complain to about the Board of Supervisors doing this?  It's like Bush crying he is going to issue a grant to find people to go looking for Osama Bin Laden - only Osama walks into Bush's office and says "hello here I am" and then he does nothing because he's issued a budget.   I'm not understanding this (and why I posted this in the Sanity Today column also where I post other things where I feel like I just dropped acid or something they're so crazy).    

So how  are you  supposed to file a complaint or get an investigation started against an officer who isn't with the LA City?  I'm not finding anything.

I did find this article that says the "board of supervisors voted to start a civilian oversight committee" in December -  Only I google "civilian oversight committee Los Angeles" and found NOTHING.  

Go to the Chief of Los Angeles?  Been there done that with Chief Gillespie in Nevada.  Twenty-four hours later - all the evidence I handed him from a two year long investigation was then wiped clean in 24 hours.  Not doing that again.

I've already been trying FOR A YEAR to reach Jim McDonnell.  First when I wrote him when I read about him "working with prostitutes" I got no answer.  Then I wrote again, and faxed again.  I then got a woman who told me the articles were "no accurate" and that he would speak to me IF he got elected.  Okay he got elected, so I reached out.  I then told told he would get in touch with me "AFTER the swearing in".  Okay.  I waited until that was done and reached out again.  This time I was told he would get back to me "after he formulated his trafficking policy".   Okay I then saw him submit a grant application for sex trafficking.  That sounded like he "formulated" something - so I reached out again.  This time I was told he would contact me "once he got the funding".  Now I know he knows about me because I actually had a member of his trafficking task force call me up, speak to me, invite me to go on the Brian Shapiro radio show.  But when I asked if I could come in and meet with the trafficking task force to talk to them about the victims I'm working with - he blew me off the phone and I haven't heard from him since.  Still no contact from Jim McDonnell's office either.  So not going to him about the issue at this point.  At this point I'll be told he'll call me "when he retires".

Now it appears the FBI is investigating corruption.  I got a general fax number here for the FBI in Los Angeles  - but I don't know who in the FBI office is investigating corruption or sex trafficking.  The one FBI agent I spoke to, the one who arrested Bill Hilliar told me there was "nothing he could do unless the traffickers were Muslim".  He didn't even know where to report issues of corruption.  He said he would "look into it and get back to me" but of course I've heard nothing.  

Can someone please explain to me why I can't find out who or where to go to file a complaint about a Pasadena, or a Long Beach, or an Orange County cop in California, or a cop in Las Vegas that's not also on Internal Affairs?  How am I supposed to file a complaint about a cop who is also on Internal Affairs?  I have emails from cops telling me that every single time they've tried to refer a prostitute to Sex Workers Anonymous for help - they've had her "run the off the force" while theirs have told me they've seen this and for that reason they're scared to give out our cards to prostitutes?

 I mean who is above Internal Affairs in Las Vegas?  I already know I'm not going to get anywhere with Internal Affairs in Vegas because Karen just tells people I'm crazy but she won't return my calls or look at any of our evidence, nor speak to any of the victims who come to me.  

Why is there not something online that's simple I can follow?  Some kind of corruption organizational chart?  This FBI website says they just RECENTLY put together these corruption units.  Okay - but where do I find how to get in touch with them?

I did find one in Los Angeles city - but why am I not finding anything anywhere else?  Why can't I find a way to reach Joseph Dickey directly that it says handled the Mally Mall raid (not arrest)?

Then I found this which was pretty disturbing when I googled for "corruption" -  Especially when it says there was "no agent" in San Francisco at all in 2004?

This is even more disturbing when you realize that Snoop was pimping across the country BY HIS OWN ADMISSION in 2003.  But clearly Joseph Dickey isn't afraid to arrest someone who is connected to Snoop Dogg - but how do I reach him?

So this is more of the reason why when I got a call from a politician asking me to help rescue a woman out from under that ring because the "police didn't want to get involved" - you can see I had no one to complain to about this.  In Nevada - there was no Internal Affairs at all in Las Vegas in 2003.

It's things like this as to probably why right now as I'm speaking in September of 2015 - I know for a fact a drug dealing pimp just got hired with Metro.  His mom, also a drug dealer, was telling me about how the whole family, including their daughter, who is a prostitute, had to go to some function to "vouch" for him to get him on the force.  Of course he wants on the force - to protect him and his mom and sister.

Which is why right now in this country - everywhere there's a "task force" to "fight trafficking" I'm dealing with the office of the police protecting the traffickers.  Now you might say they just don't want me "interfering" or "working alone".  If that was the case - they would be talking to me about what the victims are telling me AS THEY HAVE FOR YEARS.  

But when I look at the FBI departments that are investigating "corruption" I'm not finding anything to do with "corruption".  Now I give you three guesses what that means?  If you're a corrupt cop and you don't want to have an FBI task force coming after you - go work on a trafficking task force!   They have one for drugs.  They have one for white collar crimes and even ART for God's sake.  But committee for corruption with sex trafficking?  I don't see a category listed.

When I started this work in 1987 - if I had a case involving a pimp that the woman/victim wanted to see arrested - we could go to the police and get help.  Again, look at the Margo Compton case. She was able to go to the police and get help.  Now back then I feel the system wasn't set up to properly protect victims - which is what I feel led to her death.  The police would tell me they didn't have the money to put victims into proper housing while waiting on trial because sex trafficking didn't have "federal recognition".  That's what I kept hearing about why we needed federal recognition.  But the Margo Compton case is why victims like her DON'T go to the police anymore - they come to me.  But that doesn't mean we don't want to do something to shut down the ring itself.  Okay who do we go to then?  The National Trafficking Hotline says "only the victim" can make out a report - so what happens if they are too afraid to directly so they come to me?  Then I try to go to the police with the information - and I'm getting blown off.  Something's got to give here.  

We were told they weren't helping prior to 2000 because "they didn't have the money because sex trafficking didn't have federal recognition.  Okay so we pushed for the recognition - and we got it and since the TVRA of 2003 - now I can't get a cop anywhere to talk to me as anything but the enemy.  Maybe, just maybe it's because there's no watchdogs!  I'm not finding any anyway.  I sure can't find an attorney to help like we used to either.  Too many have wound up really slapped like when that attorney went after Kamala Harris for the homeowners who got illegally foreclosed on - and he gets 17 years in prison.  Not inspiring cops to want to get involved anymore that's for sure.   I see in fact it was the ACLU who got a corruption team put together against the LAPD in fact.

I'm not alone in this view that corruption's gotten out of control.  Serpico feels the same way.

So too does Judge Goethals.  Who by the way, this Slate article said that Kamala Harris was "going to ask UC Irvine's professor of law" to do a report on this situation. He however said to me last month, August of 2015, that "no one has contacted me about it".

I guess she was too busy reviewing an illegally obtained videotape against Planned Parenthood.  Right or wrong - it was illegally obtained.  Which means anyone who aired it is also guilty of a crime as well as those who recorded the tape.  So she can hold a press conference against Planned Parenthood with an illegally obtained tape - but when I write, email, call and fax about a multi-national sex trafficking ring I get bumpkiss?  Maybe it's because I don't have the campaign contribution money that the pro-life people do.  I don't know what the issue is here.

Now it appears the FBI is beefing up "foreign" corruption.  Huh?  Can we do something about at home first?

Okay 2011 looks like they're doing something about corrupt judges and courts.  Upon further investigation it appears this is in NY only.

Oh this explains something.  Kansas got a corruption officer to work in the human trafficking area. in 2011.  THAT might explain why they were finally able to get an arrest in 2013 against pimps in the trafficking ring I've been working on getting someone to go after the heads of said operation there - but I can't here in California!  In fact there was a whole slew of massage parlors shut down in 2013 in Kansas.   Too bad no contact information for Amanda on the article.  But I still find it interesting that this was a tough case - and they got those three pimps in jail in Kansas - but not California.  I've been wondering why and maybe it was because of Amanda on the job!

Let me try and google Nevada corruption.  This looks like the "Criminal Intelligence Unit".

Okay I google that.  I get this.  I get a lot of articles about how corrupt Nevada is - but I'm not finding anyone I can file a report with about the issue to open an investigation!

Now let me bring up a point here for a moment.  It's now 4:55 a.m. I'm writing this.  I have to do my SWA work in my "spare" time. I have no salary.  No grant.  No fund raising.   So I have to do my daily stuff during the day, take care of my daughter, and work with our members.  By the time I get to do everything else - it's after 5 pm.   Now when I was a victim of trafficking - I didn't wake up until about 5 pm.  I remember that was my biggest barrier to finding help - no one was in after 5 pm to take calls.  So today there are emails and fax machines.  So when I find a phone number of an office that closes at 5 pm - that does not help me.  Nor will that help a victim either.  Just a site note here - and why we have an email address and I answer the SWA hotline until 4 am before I shut it down to go to sleep.

Now I find a vice corruption unit here in Riverside, California -  But again no email or contact form even.

The brothels however are in northern Nevada.  Going to the website to "file a complaint" for northern Nevada - I see we're still complaining to the Chief.   However, over the years the women tell me the "chief is involved".  So we need to find someone to go to over the Chief's head in Nevada.

It does appear that Internal Affairs has been replaced with the Office of Professional Responsibility -

Okay they have a form on their website -  It says you fill out the form and then mail to:

1535 Old Hot Springs Rd, Suite 20
Carson City, NV 89706

Problem is I don't know of one single hooker that is going to go to that website, fill out that form, and mail that letter.

Oh here we go - on another page is an email address -

Now Clark County says it has a "citizen review board"

Okay here's an email for them and here's the form -

It's now taken me HOURS to find these forms.  But at least I found out where and how to file a complaint against law enforcement in Nevada.

I've emailed these two emails now to see if these are the right offices to complain about a problem with police officers.

This is interesting - the Office of Public Safety appears to be DMV.  The NV legislature is saying their officers have the "same powers" as cops.  But when they ask if that means DMV employees can arrest someone - this guy isn't "comfortable answering".  But finally someone said "yes a DMV employee can arrest you" as of March of 2015.

I'm really confused now.  I'm trying to figure out who and how do I file a complaint against a cop in Nevada.  Now it appears I can be arrested by a DMV employee?  Well if that's the case, maybe I need to go talk to a DMV agent about arresting some of these pimps!

They don't seem to be doing much about the corrupt police.  Now in reading this article - it appears that I would complain to the DA's office.   This case by the way only ties back into why many sex trafficking victims CAN'T trust the police enough to call them for help!  Oh wait, that article is 2010 while Gillespie was still chief!

I remember that's when he'd report everything to the DA's office because David Schubert used to cover everything up before his death from a drug overdose.

Now back to filing complaints against police officers.  Yes it's as bad in northern Nevada as it is Clark County. Which this article ties back into why a sex trafficking victim can't safely call 911 in Nevada.  Especially if the cop is just going to go and tip off her trafficker like this guy tipped off people who were about to be arrested!  By the way - notice this a California officer that's working through a Reno police office.  This is just tipping off people - not that they'd harm a prostitute right?

Think again -

BTW - I've told you people that prostitutes are the "canary in the mine" about problems didn't I?  I want you to read this about Hambrick.

During the 2013 hearings on the sex trafficking Bill I was "intimidated" into not coming in to testify.  I asked the legislature if I could testify remotely by phone or skype and they refused.  They kept holding the hearings at karate studios where they trained the officers and I took this as clearly a threat.  What prostitute is going to go into a martial arts studio where they train cops with cops there to testify against what's going on with the cops and why we didn't want to see that law passed?

We did have a very brave member go and testify at the legislature to not only register our objection to the trafficking bill, but also to oppose the brothel expansion into Las Vegas.  She appeared in front of the whole legislature with the other anti-trafficking advocates and read a letter to them - which John heard because she was looking right at him.  When I spoke to him on Facebook about this - he FLATLY DENIED ever seeing her, hearing her, talking to her, etc.  When I reminded him this hearing was VIDEOTAPED and sent him over a clip of him SPEAKING TO HER - he then blocked me from his facebook account.

While refusing to have coffee with me to talk about the Bill, or speak to me on the phone, he did have dinner with Dennis Hof the night before the hearings.  He then had me BANNED from the property where Congo Justice, whose president was from Nigeria by the way, came in to show films about sex trafficking in the Congo, while they were discussing a trafficking bill in Nevada!  I still don't know where the money went he raised by the way.  I do know that while he was pushing this trafficking bill - he was refusing all contact with us, the only group that had been working with trafficking victims IN NEVADA SINCE 1996.

Does it get written about or believed?  Not until someone "else" gets pushed on.  They always do it to someone like us first - and then when they get away with it enough - they start getting cocky.  Next comes the "regular" citizens!

But this is just like when I was supposed to testify at the NV legislature about the brothel's proposed sales tax on a Monday.  On a Friday they showed up with a bogus arrest warrant that of course they couldn't get cleared until I saw the "judge on Monday".  Sure they let me go Monday after court - but the hearing was over then.  What you're reading about here folks - is how Nevada does things.  This is why prostitutes are NOT STUPID and why they're NOT GOING TO CALL 911 WHEN THEY NEED HELP IN NEVADA WITH SEX TRAFFICKERS!

I'm still confused though.  This guy gets arrested in a corruption case - but he lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.  But the office that arrested him was out of the NY corruption investigative unit.

So this email is for people who are doing corruption in NY I guess - even if they live in Nevada.  Okay the trafficking ring I've been trying to get someone to look at for TWO YEARS NOW - has massage parlors in NY.  So maybe I can get them to look at the case!

From this article - it again appears Assemblyman Chris Edwards went to the "Criminal Intelligence Unit" for help.  I give up.  I can't find that unit anywhere on Google - so I've written to him to ask where directly I can reach this arm of law enforcement.

This article makes it look like there's been people trying to report corruption in Nevada and California for a while now.

I'm now COMPLETELY CONFUSED trying to figure out where to report various corruption in just Nevada and California.  I'm lost.  There should be an easier way to do that where just ordinary people can file a complaint.

That does it.  I'm going to build a website where people who want to file a complaint can file a complaint.  Then I'll help them figure out how to get the complaints filed.  After HOURS of research - I still don't know where to go to file complaints.  I mean I read that Internal Affairs is now the Office of Public Safety.  But then I see a site at Internal Affairs to file a report.  Ugh! 

Update?  9/28/15 3:45 pm I've actually gotten a call from someone in Nevada about these issues. Don't know where it's going yet but Nevada MUST be improving situations if I actually got a phone call today from two offices!  Yahoo!
