Dear Canadian Media:
I know you probably don't know who I am from Adam and there's a reason for that. I'm writing you to see what I can do to change that and explain. Catch this clip from "Enter the Dragon" with Bruce Lee in 1973. http://www.movieclips.com/videos/enter-the-dragon-official-clip-master-fighter-510741059967 I need to get the rest of that scene - but you can see this jail cell with men in this clip. The men are human trafficking victims. After they show the men, they show a white girl, not an Asian girl mind you, but a white girl, who is being drugged and clearly being prepped for sex trafficking. In Elvis "Harum Holiday" he's also trying to rescue a woman from sex trafficking. Only we didn't have the word "sex trafficking" back in those days. In fact, when I asked about those sorts of scenes - I was told "oh those sorts of things don't exist anymore".
There was no where for us to go. No one even believed we existed except Lois and she only took in kids. Even with her - she had trouble making people understand why she had to make a distinction between prostitutes and runaways. People couldn't understand that a young girl in most of these shelters would be raped by the other clients and staff alike and they needed special protection. Covenant House by the way wouldn't even take prostitutes because the pimps would come looking for them with guns and they wouldn't hire armed security. Then suddenly they would take male prostitutes. That's when we learned it was because Father Ritter liked boys. Took ten years to get him out because no one wanted to stop the money machine to get him out. So for ten years I had staff smuggling the male prostitutes out to me when he wasn't looking because they didn't want to go to the press or the police - but we could at least get the boys out. Until it was discovered what they were doing and then they'd be fired anyway.
They aren't safe in court - even with court staff around and it's a guard whose feeling them up. http://lasvegastribune.net/clark-county-court-patricia-doninger-youre-fire/
They can't call the police because they might be like Holtzclaw http://www.buzzfeed.com/jtes/daniel-holtzclaw-alleged-sexual-assault-oklahoma-city or like Chris Butler http://patch.com/california/sanramon/private-investigator-christopher-butler-pleads-guilty0df4c86437 or just either completely incapable of protecting them http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/When-Jailbirds-Sing-It-was-the-pure-savagery-of-3018647.php or they took a bribe or were blackmailed to look the either way. In Margo's case we don't know other than she agreed to testify against her traffickers and her and her twins were savagely slaughtered in their own home.
Nor does the stamp "christian" mean they're a good place to go either for help. http://rhrealitycheck.org/article/2012/02/21/dark-side-mercy-ministries/ Remember, there was a famous study done once that revealed 100 percent of porn stars came from very strict religious backgrounds, and that their sexual abuse was done within that context.
So this is why you haven't been hearing about us. There are a lot of people who are trying to go for this $20 million that I understand the ministry has set aside to do something about trafficking. So what I saw was they went after the PEERS people and wiped them out of the way so they had a clear path. Now the people who made nothing but a mess of things in the states are trying to get their hands on money there in Canada. I just need your help please getting the two hotlines out there for this community where we can meet them where they're at and get them what they need.
