PROOF OF HOW THE OTHER SIDE OPERATES

http://orangecountyda.org/civica/press/display.asp?layout=2&Entry=4935

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…

IT'S MORE THAN JUST HER

Stories like this are why we've been getting nothing but the runaround for YEARS about bringing www.sexworkersanonymous.com 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.

IF YOU'RE STANDING BEHIND SOMEONE WITH NO OPPOSITION - THEN YOU'RE STANDING IN THE WRONG LINE

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 sweep…

JOOHOON DAVID LEE - HOMELAND SECURITY OFFICER AND TRAFFICKER

This email is to Mr. Joe Jeronimo who now works for FLETA https://www.fleta.gov/profile/joe-jeronimo

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 aft…

CORRUPTION IN NEVADA AND CALIFORNIA RE: SEX TRAFFICKING

CALIFORNIA
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…
