Aug 15th – Help the Uninformed to See the Bigger Picture: Summary Lists of Professionals & Organizations Associated with Trafficking & Abuse
In This Newsletter
Human trafficking is the ugliest subject imaginable and one that we’d all like to see buried. But we’ve learned that it must come fully to light in order to be stopped and for healing to take place.
After endless hours of compiling research on such darkness, my energy has taken a beating. But we do this work for a reason: to help those who have eyes to see the truth.
Please use these summaries to help the uninformed to see patterns in disjointed news reports.

Boy Scouts of America: Reported Abuse of Nearly 800 Children
A lawsuit filed Monday against the Boy Scouts of America says hundreds of former Scouts have come forward in recent months with accounts of sexual abuse, allegations from across eight decades that reach nearly every state. Lawyers began collecting the accounts this spring as they prepared a suit, which they filed on behalf of a client who alleges his former scoutmaster plied him with drugs and alcohol before repeatedly sexually abusing him. At a news conference Tuesday morning, the lawyers said they have nearly 800 other clients who were abused while Scouts.

German Catholic Churches:
1,670 Catholic Officials Abused 3,677 Children;
Boys’ Choir: 547 Children Abused
A “shocking” report into the sexual abuse of children by Catholic clergy in Germany is “probably only the tip of the iceberg”, the country’s justice minister has said.
The German Catholic church presented… a report detailing the cases of 3,677 children, the majority of whom are male, who were sexually abused between 1946 and 2014.
– The Guardian (2018)
At least 547 members of a Catholic boys’ choir in Germany were physically or sexually abused between 1945 and 1992.. The Domspatzen choir in Regensburg was run for 30 years by pope Benedict XVI’s brother, Rev. Georg Ratzinger… The report said 547 boys at the Domspatzen’s school… were victims of physical or sexual abuse, or both… At the choir’s preschool, “violence, fear and helplessness dominated” and “violence was an everyday method… Breaking the will of the children with the aim of maximum discipline and dedication formed the basis for violence.”

Archdiocese of St. Louis: 61 Clergy Members Accused of Child Sexual Abuse
On Friday, the Archdiocese of St. Louis released a list of of 64 clergy members who have had credible allegations of sexual abuse made against them. Of the 64 members named, 61 of the accused had substantiated molestation of a minor claims against them and three were found in possession of child pornography.

Pennsylvania Catholic Churches: 301 “Predator Priests” Named in Grand Jury Sex Abuse Report
A Pennsylvania grand jury found that for decades, 300 “predator priests” had abused at least 1,000 victims.
They were raping little boys and girls… The cover up was sophisticated. The church protected the institution at all costs… One boy was forced to stand on a bed in a rectory, strip naked and pose as Christ on the cross for the priests. They took photos of their victim, adding them to a collection of child pornography which they produced and shared on church grounds… To make it easier to target their victims, the priests gave their favored boys gifts – gold crosses to wear as necklaces. The crosses were markings of which boys had been groomed for abuse.

Police Officers Ordered Not to Arrest Catholic Priests
The report, which looked at six of the state’s dioceses, concluded that the church persuaded families not to report sexual abuses and police not to investigate them… As a report in Sunday’s News showed, police in Buffalo went along, too. Cops here were under orders not to arrest Catholic priests but, instead, to report their crimes to the local bishop who could then continue the dirty work of covering it up… More than 100 priests have been implicated as child molesters in Western New York and hardly a one spent even a night behind bars. How, without police offering aid and comfort, would that be possible? A former vice squad detective, Martin Harrington, and other retired officers confirmed to The News that they were ordered not to arrest Catholic priests, but were instead to tell the bishop. And bishops, as has become clear – both here and around the world – desperately wanted to hush it up

Worldwide Catholic Church: A System Allowing Abuse
The United Nations heavily criticized the Vatican on Wednesday for what it said was a systematic adoption of policies allowing priests to rape and sexually abuse tens of thousands of children. The devastating report published by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of a Child said… the Holy See [worldwide Catholic Church] had “systematically placed preservation of the reputation of the church and the alleged offender over the protection of child victims.”

St. Michael Jesuit Priests: Accused of Sexually Abusing an Entire Generation of Children
He was among an entire generation of children, now mostly in their 50s and 60s, who survived years of sexual abuse by Jesuit priests and Catholic church personnel shipped to the village of St. Michael. His wife was abused too. Nine Jesuit priests, volunteers and laypersons who served in St. Michael between 1949 and 1987 were later credibly accused of sexual abuse, the Diocese of Fairbanks has acknowledged. The church has apologized for the abuse.

The United Nations: 311 Sexual Abuse Victims in 2016
The United Nations is raping children. The facilitation of these child rapes is in part funded by the UK taxpayer… Earlier this month, UN Secretary General António Guterres in releasing the 2016 UN annual review said that there were 145 cases of sexual exploitation and abuse involving troops and civilians across all UN peace missions in 2016 alone. The United Nations Secretary General is talking about his own organisation… These 145 cases involved 311 victims and even the UN recognises that this is the tip of the iceberg. Many of the victims, by the UN’s own admission, are children.

Massive Pedophile Ring: 51 Arrested
Police in Norway have filed charges against 51 men suspected of involvement in a massive paedophile ring. Authorities seized 150,000 gigabytes of data, including photos, videos and chat transcripts between members of various paedophile networks… The police operation revealed sexual assaults against children as young as babies, according to The Local… “The material shows, among other things, the penetration of toddlers, children being tied up, children having sex with animals and children having sex with other children.”

Playpen Pedophile Network: 870 Arrested
The arrests were in connection with the Playpen network and followed a more-than-two-year investigation into the group’s members around the globe that began after Chase’s arrest in 2014. Playpen was accessible in what is known as the “darknet,” where internet users can engage in illegal activities using encryption and anonymity software in an effort to hide their identities. The secret network allowed anonymous users to engage in a forum where they could share photos and videos showing the sexual abuse of children… Of the 870 people arrested, 368 were in Europe. The investigation also identified at least 259 sexually abused children.

UK Slavery Network
They tricked vulnerable people from Poland into England with the promise of work and a better life. But their victims were made to live in rat-infested houses and work menial jobs… A total of 92 victims were identified but police believe at least 350 more were used by the gang… “This was trafficking and exploitation on a massive scale; this gang treated these people as commodities purely for their own greed. What they did was abhorrent: they subjected victims to a demi-life of misery and poverty. They forced them into work and, if they objected, they were beaten or threatened with violence and told family members back home would be attacked. Some were told they would be taken to the woods to dig their own graves.”

American Foster Care Kids at Dramatically High Risk of Being Trafficked
There are tremendous numbers of kids… being sold as sex slaves today in America. These are American-born kids, 50 percent to 60 percent of them coming out of the foster care industry. … The State Department’s report found that children in foster care, homeless youth, undocumented immigrant children and those with substance abuse problems were especially at risk [for] human trafficking.
– Human trafficking in America among worst in world (Jun, 2019)
Most Americans who are victims of sex trafficking come from our nation’s own foster care system. It’s a deeply broken system that leaves thousands vulnerable to pimps as children and grooms them for the illegal sex trade as young adults. We have failed our children by not fixing the systemic failures that have allowed this to happen for decades. Most people don’t know about our nation’s foster care to sex trafficking pipeline, but the facts are sobering. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) found that “of the more than 18,500 endangered runaways reported to NCMEC in 2016, one in six were likely victims of child sex trafficking. Of those, 86 percent were in the care of social services when they went missing.”

Child Sexual Abuse & Cover-Up in Police Mentorship Program
C.F.’s story is just one of many that have helped lawyers, local politicians and prosecutors piece together a picture of sexual abuse, negligence and cover-up within the program and police department. It adds to a growing list of abuses by officers involved in the nationwide program spanning decades. C.F.’s lawsuit also helps establish a pattern of allegedly sexually abusive behavior by Betts specifically.

Michigan-Based Child Sex Trafficking Ring Involves Modeling Agency, Kidnapping & Forcing Narcotics on Children
The head of a child modeling agency in Michigan has been indicted for multiple charges including being involved in a conspiracy responsible for child sex trafficking and child pornography… FBI Special Agent Impola is a longstanding member of the FBI Flint North East Michigan Trafficking and Exploitation Crimes task force, who stated that for nearly two years now his agency has been investigating the violent Flint-based Spanish Cobras Gang. Special Agent Impola says that the disturbing gang is involved in the production of methamphetamine, and the worst part, the sexual trafficking of children. Agents ended up interviewing dozens of minor victims who were addicted to heroin and meth in Owosso; stating that the gang would recruit the girls, sometimes kidnapping them, only to force narcotics upon them and turn them into controllable addicts similar to zombies, Impola wrote.. It would soon be discovered that many of the girls who were victims of the Spanish Cobras Gang, were also being filmed through a child modeling agency; which turned out to be Instinct Entertainment LLC., led by Ulman.

ITNJ Seeking Truth, Disclosure, Reconciliation of Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse
The International Tribunal for Natural Justice launched the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse at an inaugural seating in Westminster, London on April 16-18th 2018. The filmed testimonies are now available via this Official Commission site to the Press, Public and all interested institutions and organs of government. The principal intention behind this Commission is not to instigate witch-hunts or target individuals, but to set in motion a culture that ensures restoration of truth, disclosure and reconciliation around the subject of human trafficking and child sex abuse. Our goal is to achieve in 9 – 12 months what governments and leaders of the world have failed to do for centuries — shed the full light of truth on the nature and extent of the human trafficking and child sex abuse pandemic.
