    State Funds to Open Centers for Abused Girls


    Submitted by Courtney Ferrell on Fri, 05/11/2007 - 11:16am.
    Georgia lawmakers have earmarked 140,000 dollars to help young girls who have been prostituted, and advocates expect to set up assessment centers in metro Atlanta.
    The Juvenile Justice Fund had sought 700,000 dollars from
    Georgia's 2008 general budget. Its goal was to open a seven-bed regional assessment center and emergency shelter for sexually exploited children, possibly at Inner Harbour, a psychiatric hospital for children in Douglasville.
    The nonprofit group affiliated with the Fulton County Juvenile Court now plans to create satellite assessment centers for exploited children in five metro Atlanta counties: Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clayton and Cobb.
    Executive Director Kimberley Borna says the centers will be based at existing hospitals or treatment centers, which first must submit proposals to the Juvenile Justice Fund.
    Few places exist to help sexually exploited kids, even though authorities call metro Atlanta a major hub for child prostitution.

    So what are they saying we won't take care of our own American Citizens? there isn't enough money for our American Children? WHERE IS ALL THE FUNDING FOR THESE KIDS? THESE ARE VICTIMS OF PREDATORS?

    The Oswald Supporting Organization of the Toledo Community Foundation recently awarded $75,000 in grant money to three area nonprofit organizations.
    Wake Up Youth, a Toledo group that helps women involved in prostitution and substance abuse, was given $45,000 to support prevention and intervention programs.

    A grant of $20,000 was awarded to Visiting Nurse Extra Care of Maumee for the Prescribed Pediatric Center to provide nursing services and enhanced child care at the specialized day-care center for children who require intense daily medical supervision.

    $20,000 in Nursing Care is a P^SS IN THE WIND>>>>>>>>>>>>>>.

    Bizarre flyers say ex-pupil is a porn star, drug dealer


    By Derrick Spies Safety and Security Reporter
    A KRUGERSDORP man has been handing out flyers at several Port Elizabeth schools claiming a former female pupil – whom he names – is a porn star and drug dealer.
    Simon Groom claims his motive is to make parents aware of the dangers their children face, but staff at St Dominic‘s Priory, where the 18-year-old girl was enrolled until the end of last year, say the bizarre flyers are slanderous and that Groom is unstable and has an unhealthy obsession with the teenager.
    The girl, whose name is known to The Herald, left St Dominic‘s at the end of Grade 11 last year and is apparently staying with relatives in England.

    Only a sick deranged wacko would do something like this so he is probably headed to the US. and he'll probably get through...........

    Dennis Rugama, 44, pleaded guilty to one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child for the maximum sentence of 16 years and one count of forcible child molestation for an additional three years, said Deputy District Attorney Robert Hight.
    An automatic deportation order was issued in the event the Guatemalan native is ever released from prison, Hight said.
    But Rugama will have to serve at least 15 years before he can even be considered for parole.
    And it is possible he may spend the rest of his life behind bars because the plea labels him a sexually violent predator, the prosecutor said. "What it comes down to, he pled for the hope that at 62 years

    Former Penn professor sentenced in child porn case


    By the Associated Press
    May 11, 2007
    ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- A former University of Pennsylvania professor was sentenced Friday to 15 years in prison for importing child pornography.

    Lawrence Scott Ward, 64, of Philadelphia, was arrested Aug. 27 after returning from Brazil through Washington Dulles International Airport. Customs agents discovered child pornography on Ward's computer and found DVDs containing videos of Ward having sex acts with an underage boy, according to court documents.

    Ward pleaded guilty in February in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. On Friday, Judge Leonie M. Brinkema also ordered Ward to pay a fine of $17,500 and, after his prison term, to serve a three-year term of supervised release.

    Why only 3 years? He was obviously documented so what's the problem?

    Internet predator


    In March, the CyberTipline received information about a possible transaction regarding child prostitution stemming from an AOL chatroom discussion.
    While case specifics are not available to the public, Collins said the tips come from one of two sources, the general public or service providers. Internet Service Providers, like AOL, are required by federal law to monitor their services and report any possible exploitation of children.
    In this instance, according to the affidavit filed in Grady County District Court, the Center was provided a transcript of an Internet conversation regarding the possible sale of a five-year-old for sex.
    Collins said the center has a staff of 20 specialists who review cases to determine jurisdiction, a tricky subject on the world wide web. Those cases where jurisdiction cannot be identified are handled at the federal level.
    According to the affidavit, the information about this conversation was handed down to the New York State Police as one of the conversation participants was identified as Keith Comire of Cohoes, New York.
    That department then contacted the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation when the man offering the child was identified as Jason Todd Burns, 25, of Chickasha.
    According to the affidavit, Burns first denied having the conversation when interviewed by OSBI Agent Lonnie Rickey and Chickasha Police Officer Jason Maddox.
    Burns reportedly admitted later to Maddox that he did quote a price for a one-year-old and a five-year-old.
    Burns was arrested on Friday, May 4, and is in Grady County jail on $500,000 bond.
    “This is a very disturbing case, very upsetting,” Collins said, “The one silver lining is that law enforcement is standing ready to respond to these incidents and the public has a resource like the CyberTipline.”

    this is what it should be in all 50 STATES
    $500,000.00 and cut the B.S.

    Risky behavior is ironic


    AIDS organizations around the world bitterly opposed the policy when it was proposed, pointing out that it would hinder outreach efforts to sex workers who are at high risk of receiving and transmitting HIV.
    Bush wouldn’t budge, and signed a 2003 National Security Directive that said prostitution and related activities are “inherently harmful and dehumanizing.”
    Several groups and countries had their funding cut as a result. Brazil lost about $40 million for one of its more successful anti-AIDS programs, one that urged sex workers to use condoms.
    During an Ask the White House online chat in 2004, Tobias defended the policy. He said the United States was “fighting sex trafficking and prostitution,” while serving victims of these activities. He added that he was overseeing programs “aimed at men and boys to help them develop healthy relationships with women.”
    Tobias is one more example of politicians who enforce strict moral codes that they cannot meet themselves.
    It is true that prostitution is a dangerous, dirty business that needs to be curbed. But exacting, moralistic anti-prostitution policies only drive the business underground, making it more difficult to fight

    Okay here is some money to put towards the victims at home here right under our noses.....

    The New Disappeared


    Sex Offenders, Civil Confinement and the Resurrection of Evil

    One of the first acts of New York's newly-elected "liberal" governor, Eliot Spitzer, was to secure passage of the nation's most far-reaching civil confinement law. With its passage, New York joined nineteen other states that permit the continued imprisonment of sex offenders after they have completed their prison sentence. These inmates are defined as suffering a mental disorder and, thus, posing the threat of committing new crimes upon release. Civil confinement permits the state to transform a criminal sentence with a specified duration into an indeterminate life sentence.
    Convicted sex offenders are joining a growing list of what can only be called "the new disappeared." Latin American dictatorships (under CIA and U.S. military supervision) pioneered "disappearance" as a government practice to deal with radical opposition during the tumultuous '70s and '80s. Today, both U.S. federal and state governments are instituting a less barbaric, but no less effective, means to ensure the disappearance of a variety of unacceptable citizens. In effect, once a person is convicted, sentenced and imprisoned, he or she can be disappeared from civil society for life.
    Today, the terrorist, particularly the Muslim jihadist, and the sex offender, especially the pedophile, are perceived as the gravest evils to civil society. But they are not alone.
    The new disappeared also includes those swept up in the CIA practice of "extraordinary rendition" or identified as "enemy combatants" and imprisoned in the American gulag, Guantánamo; those, like Sami Al-Arian, the Palestinian educator, and Josh Wolf, the indie video journalist (recently released), being held for an indeterminate sentence for contempt of a grand jury subpoena to testify under a questionable (if illegal) order; those, like Mumia Abu-Jamal and Leonard Peltier, the former Black Panther journalist and American Indian Movement activist, respectively, serving a life sentence or are on death row with no likelihood of release; those given extraordinarily punitive prison sentences reaching to 100 and 200 and even 900 years; and the nearly 6 million ex-felons and those awaiting trial who have been disenfranchised from civil society. America is practicing disappearance with a bureaucrat's smirk.

    Now they are thinking, better the offender missing than our children.

    Woman pimp lured girl of 12


    Pimp: Fiona Walsh

    A female pimp who lured girls as young as 12 into prostitution after getting them hooked on crack cocaine was jailed for ten years on Wednesday.
    Fiona Walsh gave vulnerable youngsters clothes and other gifts before plying them with drugs. When they became dependent, she would force the girls to have sex with customers.
    One, aged just 12 when she fell into the call-girl's clutches, ended up selling her body for years to clients in filthy alleyways and seedy hotel rooms.
    Another child was locked in a bathroom and told she had to pay for her next fix by having sex with a pair of drug addicts.
    Five youngsters came forward to tell police how Walsh had ruined their lives, although the case against her was limited to offences involving just two.
    The 33-year-old, of Kilburn, North- West London, pleaded guilty to procuring underage girls to take part in sex and supplying hard drugs.

    In Albany, Push for Child Prostitutes to be Seen as Victims not Criminals


    by Cindy Rodriguez

    NEW YORK, NY May 09, 2007 —Kids who become prostitutes are treated like criminals or delinquents when they get caught. Some lie about their age and spend a few nights in Rikers Island. Others get shipped off to a number of different state run juvenile detention facilities or group homes. Recently there’s been a push in Albany to treat these troubled youth, some as young as 12, like victims who’ve been sexually exploited. WNYC’s Cindy Rodriguez reports:
    REPORTER: Inside a tiny cramped office in East Harlem, Denise Brown has just finished a 3 hour long therapy session.
    Brown and Caseworker: So how are you going to get prepared for Monday. Oh I’ll be ready.
    REPORTER: Her 26 year old caseworker has found her a GED program and a parenting class to attend. The teenager has a two year old being raised by a relative. Brown has agreed to talk to me but only if her name is changed and her voice is slightly altered.
    Brown: I’m 17 years old and I’ve been prostituting since the age of 12.
    REPORTER: The teenager says it started shortly after she ran away from home:
    Brown: …I was here and there sleeping at other people’s cribs and that’s when I met a john, uh a pimp and he taught me how to work around on the tracks and in the strip clubs. I used to work in the strip clubs too….It wasn’t me. It wasn’t something I liked. It was just something I did to get food and sleep and clothes.

    These poor kids. I am guessing here but I have 3 States in mind that are going slam the hammer on this It will either be NY or NJ or California my guess is the first 2 , someone has to get a landmark case and go with it. They have to come down hard and swift.

    ".Sometimes you stay out there until they feel like you can come home. Until they feel like you met your needs of getting the money"

    Brown: If we can have people come out and talk to us and have people that show that they care about us. Then us young people would be off the streets. Because a lot of us feel that nobody cares about us and that we’re not wanted. How awful these kids are left to feel like this.

    Sometimes I wonder if anyone ever thought this would be happening to American children in the year 2007?
    We have lost our direction here. If this is example we are setting for the next generation to control the Country how will this affect them in the way they think ? Will they have compassion? There are a select few really trying very hard here to change this .
