Saving a stranger from slavery

[cross-post from NewsStream]

Right now, imagine you are reading a plea for help from someone you have never met. You believe the two women in a photo are about to be forced into a life of prostitution.

Do you carry along as usual? Should you write back with advice? Or do you take action?

Last May, a tale of suspected human trafficking unfolded in real time on MetaFilter.com. A regular user of the community weblog started a thread called, "Help me help my friend in DC."

Over the next 26 hours, Daniel Reetz received offers of assistance and links to other resources. He points out that all of this poured in from anonymous Internet users.

And one of those strangers, Kathrine Hinds, opened up her home to two young Russian women thought to be targeted by human traffickers.

Hinds and others on the blog believed those two young women were going to be tricked into sexual slavery. And they did what they could to stop that from happening.

It's an incredible story that shows we each have the power to halt this terrible practice. Reetz raised the alarm. Hinds heard it and responded. How far would you go to save a stranger?

    this problem will always be -untill laws are changed in the realm of online escort services – why because it loopholes arround prostitution –

    reasons – 1. prostitution is illegal in everyplace in the u.s.except puerto rico and nevada . so if any other plces a person is engauged in sex acts for money it is a criminal offence -as a business to sell sex acts for money .

    2. the loophole is this – escort services online -massage therapists online -and chripractor or spa therapys online -people that basically advertise for a speciffic trade – is legal in all 50 states – so once a "john -books online say an escort /guide service . say for three hours at $300.00 per visit – once the escort shows up and the two consenting adults – over 18 decide to stay home and have sex on a one night stand -friends with benifits understanding instead of going to corporate functions -well according to a judge this is not illegal -so this is the loopholes many traffickers use.

    as for massgae therapists chiropractors and spa thereapists -yep they can have legitimate licences and businesses as fronts and do real massages by day -but for regular favorite customers the massage therapists or there mgmt may tend to offer – at home theraputic treatments -or the massuse may invite a customer to "there home " under the watchfull eyes of there handlers -and quietly ask for funding for services rendered .after said actions are acomplished – including "happy endings " ....term used for completed massages after sex acts . -if any johns tend to read this and get ideas to check this out and entertain thoughts of getting involved with supporting this "type of business " first i would ask you to study every aspect of how cruel and violent this trade is to its victims wich – torture would be an understatement . now add prolonged abuse over years . so have a heart and do not support this in any way shape or form -2. if your the heartless perverted type "word to the wise herpes is cheap " :} along with every other std disease that every other pervert has given your -lady of the evening " also you may end up as a registerd sex offender if the place is raided -and so much for your life freedom and family and marraige . and 3. the last thing anyone still would want to entertain in even trying to seek and get involved with in supporting these forced "cage brothels " is as a last deterant -3 . would be – if your not a normal criminal type parolee gang affiliate or conected to the mob to begin with . take your pick in the future wich mob you will be permanantly dealing with – because once you get involved with them at any level – you are now and forever tainted by there systems and influences -so dont be suprised as a john if you got to screw and then end up getting your life screwed up by them . learn from me – i dabbled in drugs and that culture – in ten years in cost me two in jail i lost several friends -and screwed up my own family . lost thousands of dollars -comunity friends and family respect and trust that can never be replaced -screwed up my health -my record -my job and my sanity – and it took 6 months to get in and ten years to get out -so i lost a decade of my life to "criminal issues " ive got nothing but regrets now – of my past . and i still have to deal with residual issues for life related to it . so to any future johns -"it isnt ever worth it " besides – what if this was your mother or sister or aunt or cousin or close freind or business freind or neibhor or anyone else you know and consider or care about – would you see them treated this way – would you – get involved in systems that cause them severe problems like this . and lastly – when you die what will god say about your actions – on judgement day ???. – the choice is yours – to support this perverted business or to support anti trafficking anti slavery groups that dismantle these organisations legally . and help there victims . if you want a taste of what its like to recover from this kind of abuse -i advise reading and joining online – survivors of sexual bause support group sites -then by the stories you read from victims youll see first hand the damages you get involved in as johns and wreck lives . . many victims of child hood trauma or domestic violence-carry severe mental issues for life at times – many recover but some cant live with things and become suicidal – . so read and see what your actions do to others if you engauge in support of any kind for traffickers- my advice watch – "HUMAN TRAFFIKING " THE MOVIE ON YOUTUBE.COM -IT TAKES TEN MINUTE INTERVALS OF 18 VIDEOS -ABOUT AN HOUR AND A HALF OF YOUR TIME TO WATCH THE WHOLE MOVIE AND YOULL UNDERSTAND HOW DESTRUCTIVE THIS ACTUALLY IS . – -good bye ....peace . please keep those in prayer that currently live in this siuation as victims being forced to do these detestable things daily just to survive the abuse by there victimisers -daily -prayer for there release and there recovery would be apreciated . thanks – god bless -p.s. 70 percent of trafficked sexually exploited people in the u.s. are american citizens dealing with drugs gangs criminal life and prosituition – and a 1/4 are minors . so be on alert for it here next door . sad -verry sad .

      i forgot to add a few more damages cuased by supporting this "TRADE " .

      THE REASON I ADRESS THIS TO CURIOUS – "JOHNS" OR SEX-OFFENDERS " IS BECAUSE -ive herd some look at these sites ocasionally in interest -and are still in the life style where they support this garbage -so part of my comments are geared toward people who do not understand this system and others the offenders that dont consider nor care enough for other peoples lives they may effect in the future by there support and actions toward others in this life style -or poor choices they make when they involve them selves in the future in this system – and because they just dont comprehend the damage they do to others or they would possibly reconsider -and since this "EPIDEMIC HINGES ON MONEY FROM SEX OFFENDERS AND JOHNS I TARGET THEM WITH EDUCATION ABOUT THE TRUE COSTS OF THERE ACTIONS TOWARDS OTHERS .

      some other problems related to sex -tourisim .or being involved with supporting sexual exploitation and supporting human traffciking – that these people may be un aware of . that ive studied .

      1. you risk the lives of whom you "rent by the hour " by death from exaustion – how – many of these victims service 30 to 50 or more people day 24/7 and they do not eat right have no rest and get std"s alot and also tend to have drug addictions forced upon them or are given tranquiliers or pian killers by there handlers -so a compromised imune syetem and a compromised resting time and a drug problem tends to add up to systemic failure on the prat of the victim .over time .
      2. if they become pregnant – many are not sent to hospitals for deliverys and many just by being underage – are no physically built to bear children so pregnacy complications are verry high as seen in forced arraged underage marriges in places of the middle east and south asia – so by a johns actions in less that a year you are directlyor indirectly involved in the deaths of the victims you help victimise by your patronage -in pregnacy complications -resulting in the deaths of the victim or the child -or both due to complications or back alley botched abortions -and in some cases where a child survives the child is removed from the victimand the child is used as a extortion device to further manipulate the victim from a distance by threats of its death if the victim does not comply with demands . sad true fact – especially with the mexican drug cartels. and if the victim is forced to have an abortion – that just made the john an accessory to murder in my eyes – but since so much time has passed the johns never hear of it nor care -mot even knowing the traffickers have just slaughtered a child that was in part theres -.

      3.something that johns seem to be verry niaeve about – and this goes for all victims of human trafficking or prostitution
      if you go to a club or a massage parlor or a brothel or another country for sex . or hire an escort .or go to a strip club or night club . remember these things .

      1.you are now engauged with the mob in business – so you better pay whats owed – .
      2.dont be surprised if your black mailed by there video footage .
      3.and remember everything you do is being observed from many angles ."as handlers control there victims – you make be targeted for a future crime – such as – black mail- street robbery – home invasion robery and car theft or corporate theft -again your dealing with organisided crime – they allways loo to exploit even clients .
      4.dont be suprised if you ended up in jail because of survelience and your recorded acts . when agents come knocking at your door and arrest you several months later after a night out on the town – investigations can be several years long on federal levels .
      5. and what evr you do – be verry kind and gentle with a victim if you employ them – why because a verry short distance away in observance via camera or via a two way mirror besides being video taped youll be observed by a " gaurd type or gaurds – these people are there for two simple reasons .a. to make sure the victim is doing there jobs -two to make sure you the john do not chase and harm to thee victim – and these folks aree armed and heavily skilled at fighting and i wouldnt be surprised if he – organisation had hols allready dug to fill out in the desets or the mountains with abuser type offender -johns . so mind your manners. and also dont be suprised if you get set up by the victim – ive herd of ransoms in mexico – the john goes in to the brothel the victim is rented by the hour and at the hotel – when
      business is enacted – dont be surprised if five goons come through the door and taser you/or beat you and gag and bag you and haul you off – while the victim – just shakes her head and gets dressed -and goes after the next hombre:}.
      6. dont be suprised if you get a fake police raid in mexico and have to have your wife and extended family send extortion money to bail you out via "la murtath" the payoff .-since crime and corruption go hand in hand down there anymore . :} .justice at its finest – victimisers becomeing victims themselves .
      7 then theres the creditcard and id theft you have to watch for :}.
      8. and dont be surprised if you end up in an unauthorised internet porn movie – people forget besides observers /gaurds there are also video cameras rolling behind the mirrors or in sub resolution cameras in small spaces .not all filming in those places are for police investigations or blackmail .

      as for why im such an avid hater of these expoilter systems of human trafficking -im a surviovor of child hood sexual abuse .

      so i know first hand the damages that are done .along with self medicating for decades with various addictions also ruining my life more -and trying to prevent issues from making me into a cycle abuser /victimiser – . in regaurds
      to tendancy problems along with about 15 other mental disorders that have had life long effects .

      the case in point of this blog is this -what people do not know or understand is these final points . and these should turn any would be victimiser away from support for this system .

      life expectancy of a human trafficking victim in this system if they do not get away from it .

      in research reports : for adults its avg is 4 years .till there dead .
      for children its avg. is two years .till there dead.

      why – here are the reasons .
      1. violence from clients
      2. violence from handlers or traffickers – yes they are beaten regularly to keep them in line .
      3. exhaustion- reasons stated above .
      4.forced drug addictions and accidental overdose especially in children .
      5.sexually transmitted diseases -left untreated.
      6.infections left not treated .
      7. forced – botched abortions .
      8. suicide -intentional overdose .
      9.disease related mal nurishment .
      10. being made an example for others – executed for terror tactics inspireing fear-femicides like those of juarez victims .
      11. killed for trying trying to escape .
      12. or being hunted and executed after there escape .
      13. being witness to another serious crime by accident .
      14. or being – kliled for no longer having any use to the handlers or traffickers or crinimal organisation such as when you get weak and sick and are no longer a profit but are a burden and know to much aout there organisations inner workings .
      15. starvation – in cage brothels in india – under debt bondage – girls and women are litterally starved into submission .
      16 the list goes on and on .

      i would have the – sex tourists -the johns and sex offender types understand three last things about this system and themselves .

      1. as ignorant as you may be – and thinking everything is "all good " when overseas and have – verry attractive women from brothels come out and pay you attention and ask you to go in and pay for a good time for sex -please keep in mind – that these women have to do this – or if they do not please you and smile and look like there haveing a good time -they get violently beaten – for not making you happy – not phyisically pleaseing you and not doing there job in production and business of getting customers and filling there quota"s . so – again they have to show you they are happy about doing things they cant even stand -they have to do things they dont want to do -and they have to -give you attention they normally would not .and they have to loo happy and act happy as they do it – so gentlemen -everything you pay for with the exception of phyisical pleasure is all a show – there not interested in you and dont want to be your friend and cant stand you and normally would not give you the time of day . -so its all business and -there is no love – just you paying for a lousy acting job -and supporting a system that truly harms and tortures and kills -these victims of abuse over time and it exposes great risks to yourself – so remember – behind that smile she glares at you with – theres nothing there- because they have been so desensitized by regular violence and abuse and drama and trauma . .

      second – many women that get trapped in this system are of muslim or hindu and catholic or christian faiths – and in isla,m and hinduism – they women are trapped from going back home because there families would have them killed in honor killings or in western cultures there familys would abandon them if they found out they were involved in drugs and prositution – weather its there fault or not . si by supporting this system – you imprison many of these trapped women as they cannot return home in the condition of a drugg addict or prositute because of religious or cultural problems -this is verry prevalent in asian and south asian and middle eastern countries .

      third – if i were a perspective future john or sex offender – i would truly look deep inside my self and wonder about my own character – if for 1. i had issues of needing sexual desires filled by underage girls or boys . or 2. if i had to pay for love or attention or phyisical desires to be fullfilled by same age a dults -instead of haveing the aility for a correct relationship based on love and care and consideration and mutual respect where all the love and attention and physical needs and desires are met for free -this to me would show that i have a severe personal problem needing to be addressed .on a professional level mentally .i would consider why im so unatractive in phyisical or mental capacitys or character or personality flaws . anotherworsds maybe the problem lies with me and not with other people .

      i would seriously consider my relationship with god and how he views my actions toward others – incase i die soon .wich place would i end up .

      lastly i would -consider my actions – are they normal and acceptable and lawfull in society and how do i view what im involved in personally – how do my actions affect others what drives my desires – are the real or are they vain imginations -am i treating another person as a human being with respect to there persons/ and space and feelings \ or am i treating them like an object that has no feelings emotions or soul thats not recognised as a human being – just a -machine or toy or object of my attention to give my own selfish desires for a sexual act to be completed at there expense . – this any supporter of this system must ask themselves .

      are you a man that treats women or children correctly -in there weakend states of vulerability or are you a monster that feeds off of weakness and vulnerability that abuses women or children ???.

      that only you can answer presonally . then you have to ask yourself if you still have the care and consideration and capacity to honestly care about them . or is your own conscience so seared you cant tell anymore the differeance between right and wrong . if you can – you may not even realise you are in deep trouble -–.mentally .

      my advise if you are at that point -in life – you may not see it coming – but for most this direction in life leads to perverse addictions that one day down the road leads mentally ill men to cross a legal line and become a criminal in there actions towards others – basically my advise is simple – get professional help to correct your own life -and its path and direction -and do this before it leads you to cause grief or harm to another person because thats where it leads – the cycle is this – first you brainwash yourself into a preverse addiction – in time with out help youll end up causeing problems for others and when you cross the line and do this – shortly after you tend to destroy your own life right after – – buy legal or mental or phyiscal related issues ariseing after the abuse of another so save your own lives – if you detect a problem – then get it fixed before you become a problem to others in the future – because it will ruin your life also . many sex offender types have crush problems earlier in life – and develop stalker type behaviors -and if not put in check early become rapists or child molesters or whore mongers -and porn addicts and fixate with obsessive compulsive disorders and have control /relationship disorders and become cycle abusers and victimisers if not fixed or kept in check -and may become suicidal or homicidal in there futures and destroy there own abilitys to form real relationships – by not getting serious mental help .-

      i hope this was a blog worth reading – sorry about typos and length – i just wanted to show people what kinds of damages the system of human trafficking causes and also to warn people of sex addictions or perverse ways of living . hopefully the sex offenders and johns will read and understand what they do is wrong -and no longer continue thinking there actions are ok .and i do this to let every one know to look out for trafficking victims . adults and children – and to see what happens when they are not helped . im against human trafficking – domestic violence – im anti modern day slavery -and anti child abise in all forms including sexual abuse and expliotation. im a survivor – and in rcovery also of traumatic events in life /my prayers go out to those still trapped in this and it is my hopes that the supporters – the johns anmd the sex offenders- after reading this is they happen across it – change there ways and no longer abuse victims anymore ... take care everyone please keep me in prayer also -bye

        p.s – for more research information check these topics to see how despicable people who abuse other people get .

        1. in india they have a religion -and a people called devadassi -or jogininni – tey are religious temple servants / made later into prostitutes -they are purchased in india for the price of a case of american beer – and they are temple care takers as children and they are -married to the dietys /gods of the temple when they are 6-10 years old – they are then – used at ages 14 to 25 as temple servants – prositutes to service the – religions higher caste elite that contribute and donate – with the blessings of the high priest .deciple -shaman or holyman . they turn tricks for contributions less than it takes to buy an american beer . and the problems faced by them in there caste system is when they have – girl children -they tend to get abused just as there mothers by unscruolous men . as the men of the religion think its just ok since the mother has a label the daughters do to .and the sad part is they castrate young boys they buy and turn them into – unucks and also require them to do pererast or gay sexual acts as they get older . sad .
        many illiterate and uneduacted – women of the rural areas of many countrys in south asia are used and manipulated by perverse men in the form of false marriages and they are – gatehred to be married and married -then sent away with the groom – to another area just to find out upon arival -that the groom has sold his new wife to traffickers and madams .its really sad when india is considering legalising the sex trades -just to give the prositiutes offical rights becuase of the amount of abuse internally traffickd persons suffer . -.
        2. mexico has there -"RAPE TREES " places by the border or on the u.s side of the border where when the coyotes bring illegals over -word has it they pick a person out of the line and abuse them sexually and toss there undergarments up on the nearest tree to leave a reminder of what example they made to others at that place and time -as a sign . verry barbaric .
        3. on the island of cyprus -according to a turkish man i once spoke with – the govt is corrupt the police work with the mob organisation and it has many night clubs and the polce help enforce the secirity to were once a victim is trafficed in from former russian states -the night taht a group of women show up – the entire bar -crew and mob crew gang rapes them just to "break them in ,to show them how many men they are expected to service daily .standard fee for – relatives to buy back trapped victims – avg $30,000 .00 u.s. .
        4. as for underage afhgan wives in arranged and forced marriages – if they are – made pregnant too early – and bear children too young they have reports of midwives having to kill and cut up living babies in order to remove the child so the mother does not die in delivery . read on bbc news – in referance – ngo"s were explaining the need for better trained mid wives for complicated deliverys .
        5. cage brothels in india – where women – given in exchange to cover debt bondage -are starved into submission – to do prostitution and being forced to live in jail cells on premesis of brothels till family debts are paid .
        6. child prostitution in mexico because legal age for marrige is 14-16 – many young girls are – being pimped out by the cartels at yound ages – per cnn news . a few weeks ago . and are more and more becomeing victims of sex tourisim .
        7.other formes of human trafficking in india -beggars – buy children and assemble them in troops to beg for them – they are beaten if they do not make daily quota"s and at times verry young children that are betwen the ages of 5 and 10 years old are – beaten – suffer broken bones and are cut up and scared and disabled – and made damaged with life long disabling injuries – just to "LOOK" more needy and desitute in there begging for there handlers .sad verry sad .
        8. other children are forced into severe child labor fields like carpet making in india they work 15 hour days and are beaten or have there fingers injured by not working hard enough 7 days a week . .
        9. slaves are still sold in sudan for what ever reason slaves are needed – usually christians being sold by islamics by darfur .
        10 . child prostitution of illegal aliens happens here in the u.s. in the san diego ca. field areas – on farms and ranches – the traffickers call by cell phone – and go to farms and take the kids and about 20 guys avg out into the tall reeds and then the children are forced to service 20-50 guys at $20.00 a person avg age of the kids 12-16 and most of the buyers are migrant mexican nationals .
        11. mexican cartels pray on migrants from guatamalla -nicaragua – panama -venesueala -the yucatan -and cuba – and middle east erarn and south asian and asian peoples .
        12 – many middle astern countrys
        trick domstic workersd into slavery at there countrys by offerening a high paying job then -takeing there visas and telling them to work as slaves to pay back debts – as domestic servants – funy prt is – they can work all there lives and never catch up to the bills owed -and as long as there in debt the courts will not allow the "slaves to leave " under sharia laws .that are enforced – and if a woman marries a man of a middle eastern country – they will not adequatly recieve help from any agency -because they lost rights and citizenship when they married abroad . especially in afgahanisatn – also many wone in forced marriages in afgahanistan – in suicidal attempts to get out of debt bondage marraiges will light them selves on fire with gassoline to get out of there hopeless situations .also many chinese citizens – imigrants are – prostituted and traffickied in afghanisatan in kabuls brothels . ive read .
        13. in mayanmar /burma – the soldeirs for the rulling military dictatorship are actually awwarded for new and unique ways to make the karen people suffer .
        these are all the topics arround the world to day that show abuse of enslaved exploited people . if you care to read up on any subject they will be found in detail online .

        my last question to the sex offenders and the johns out there that engage in underage -prostitution and sex tourisim –

        what kind of monster does it take to betray the friendship -trust – loyalty -and innocence -and weakness of an abused child ? what kind of monster takes advantage of a weakened woman in an abused state . – thats only a question – sex offenders and johns can answer . but im my eyes you people that fall into these two catagorys are nothing like the animals that manipulate -coerce and force by torture – women and children – into this trade/system -in my euyes they deserve a fate worse than death in my opinion . – also remember – men are forced to work danerous hazardous jobs and work in factories or sweatshops and women are forced to work in elder care and also domestic servant jobs world wide . so again please keep all these poor abused victims in prayer for there release and recovery .lat point o make to the sex offenders and the johns – -if you people ever get obsesive fixations on someone else -and find yourselves again – loseing sleep and dwelling on the person of your desires too long and its affecting your life -schedule -work appetite and you find your life starting to revolve around that of another persons . before you break the law and commit a crime and do time after you have abused another person -get help professionally asap to keep from ruining your own life afterr you ruin anothers -so look further ahead and see where it goes "KNOWWHERE GOOD " any ways bottom line dont ruin you life by affecting another person in a bad way .get off the cycle abuse thing .-get profesional help first – not after a crime has been commited . so your life isnt ruined as you try to re habilitat-just my opinion . –

      I appreciate everything that shadowcaster wrote because this IS a serious issue. If all people were as calloused as you, you can expect to receive no help should you ever find yourself in trouble.

    Sex trafficking doesn't exist in Singapore. The offenders are whipped publicly with a cane. This added drama on top of imprisonment is enough deterrent. Other countries should adopt this approach. I think the immigration officers know or can sense when someone entering the country is being a victim or would be a victim of human trafficking. They should be instructed to report to the chief of police or social service in the city they would go to. No astute human trafficker would want this added scrutiny and would do their business somewhere else.

      hate to break it to you but trafficking exists *EVERYWHERE*. singapore is no exception. The only reason you think they don't exist is because no one is devoting any resources to finding trafficked women and children.
