Child Sexual Abuse - Organized Crime

by Evelyn
(Alabama, USA)

Child sexual abuse is just one spin off of organized crime , and just as the system is operating in it , so is the church . However , there is not one prosecutor who will come forward and stop it . The one prosecutor in Penn who should have got himself lost . yes, he got himself lost because he was a coward , just like others who are part of the problem .

I believe that prosecutors do need to step up and do their jobs: to prosecute offenders. But when we have juries who misunderstand the term "reason doubt" to be "any doubt whatsoever", no one will ever be found guilty. And I do not believe that even when prosecutors do their jobs that sex abusers will be stopped, except for the sex abuser on trial. Much depends on the juries. But even beyond prosecution, the problem is so much more complex than any one group to lay the blame on. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this topic with my visitors and me.

organized crime?
by: My Two Cents

I'm not certain I understand your story. To me, organized crime has one motive - profit (and protecting that profit).

When it comes to "child abuse" the only ways I can see to make money are:

Child pornography (including snuff films, see "8 mm" movie with nicholas cage)


Sexual slavery

All three of those are VERY high risk, and I don't think the reward always justifies the risk.

In order:

There is a trend in child pornography towards younger victims and more vicious acts. But there are also increasingly harsh penalties for this crime. I think I remember a distributor (hubby wife pair, not producers of the material) getting multiple life sentences for doing that.

Prostitution is also seeing a trend towards younger and younger victims. There is a book called "children in the game" written by ross mclean (writer name??) Who is a former vice cop out of alberta. It is an eye opening look into that world and the way predators get their hands on these girls. The problem with this revenue source is that you have living victims who can testify against you. It takes a cunning predator to keep prostitutes productive. Then there's prostitutes who develop drug habits, get a disease, get pregnant....

Sexual slavery. This is more common in europe but the basic idea is that organized crime will find you a 5 year old female red head for x amount of money if that's what you want. The more common scanrio is for people to promise women with "nothing to lose" jobs in Canada or wherever in exchange for a fee, then they are put to work in a "massage palour" or a strip club and forced to work off their "debt."

So...did I miss something? Has organized crime started to do something different? Anyways...I'm sorry for the long post but I really wanted to get everything I was thinking down.

Be well.

The book I mentioned above is:

Children in the game: child prostitution - strategies for recovery
Written by Ross A. MacInnes
Published 1998, published by Street Teams. $12.95 in USA, $16.95 in Canada.

And with regards to the money to be made: there is a case study story, Christine. This is what was said about the money.

"Christine and 3 other girls working for Jamus (the pimp) produced almost $4,000 a day. They worked 7 days a week, and by the end of the month had turned over to Jamus the incedible sum of $104,000."

Oh, Christine was 14 years old when she started hooking.

I'm just...words fail me.

Be well.
