Study Finds Nearly Half of Child and Adult Sex Trafficking Victims Were Abused by Police

Leave a comment

A shocking new report from the Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women paints a disturbing picture of law enforcement and their role in sex trafficking. The report found that instead of preventing child and adult sex trafficking, many police officers are participating in it.

The report is titled “Sex Trafficking in Hawaii: The Stories of Survivors,” which detailed the testimonials from multiple victims. One particularly disturbing part of the report was the fact that almost half of all the victims interviewed reported that police officers participated in their abuse and victimization.  

“The corruption of members of the criminal justice system reported by the participants in the study was pervasive in their stories of being prostituted,” the report noted.

The report found that the average age of those being trafficked is just 14-years-old, showing how early the abuse began.

One of the victims interviewed, who wished to remain anonymous for obvious reasons explained that “the same people that are charging you for prostitution are the people turning around and buying it from you.”

Families demand probate reform

“If we desire respect for the law, we must first make the law respectable.”

–The Honorable Louis D. Brandeis

The dangers facing a largely unsuspecting public looms large as families find their assets and civil liberties being high jacked and trampled by the legal industry via probate courts. Historically probate courts were specialized courts that handled the administration of estates, ensuring that the decedent’s wishes were carried out.Athena-Roe-photo

Today, probate courts have become venues for instant liquidation of assets, pillaging, legal abuse and other atrocities. Probate lawyers work with banks and realtors and are quick to jump in the game. Beneficiaries are denied due process rights and are threatened and harassed as their inheritance is depleted.

All too often there are bribes to public officials and law enforcement “looks the other way.” Lawyers devise schemes to defraud estates and others sell off property to their groups of cronies for pennies on the dollar. Families are destroyed, estates pillaged, inheritance depleted, careers shattered, as protracted litigation bankrupts the brightest and the best. Just ask the forty families who came forward to share their “horror stories of probate” at the state Capitol in July 2015.

This dirty little secret comes as a surprise to vulnerable family members facing the loss. Although public awareness is slowly growing, resistance to change plagues the industry. According to financial expert Juliette Fairley probate is big business topping nearly $41 trillion annually, double the energy industry.

For those of us who have legally abused by court appointed and estate lawyers experienced threats, corruption, forced to sign non-disclosure agreements to conceal the lawyers schemes and fraud, legal fee churning, and other abuses, life is never the same. New media websites like the Estate of Denial, F.A.C.E.U.S. (Denver), the National Association to Stop Guardian Abuse, and HAR Justice’s, “The Economic Rape of America” along with online radio programs have done their part to “highlight” the issue, yet this ugly reality persists.
