FYI: Everything on our site is fully documented with links to the original source. While we are quite aware that the folks at the FBI Bureau of Justice Statistics don't seem to be able to coordinate their statistics- and the numbers in their tables often conflict with other tables for the exact same 'crime' or data sets- there is no other valid source for this information. If their data isn't good enough to show the statistics of numbers of arrests, crimes and ages of arrestees, then what would be? Yes, there can be political reasons for arresting or not arresting individuals, as well as charging arrested persons with less serious criminal charges (i.e. reducing a solicitation charge to a disorderly conduct charge), but there are currently no other sources for this information. If it doesn't come from a government source, the statistics involving persons of any age or gender alleged to be in prostitution presented by a group or individual can only be 'guesstimates' based on speculation and flights of fantasy, not on 'facts.' So an academic, statistician or mathematician cannot present statistics that are any more 'reliable' or 'valid' than the ones we present on our site. You are free to check ALL our numbers using the links to the government websites- in fact, we highly encourage you to do so.

This page is part of our reference library. Its purpose is to provide documentation, information, data and statistics with links to the original source articles, tables and reports where we found the information- which is primarily from the US Government.

You may notice that there are no statistics giving the number of persons convicted of any of the reported crimes, be it rape, domestic violence or prostitution related 'crimes.' If you know of any websites where this information can be found, please do contact us at the email address below.

Use this reference material to counter the absurd arguments and fictitious claims of the prostitution abolitionists of the religious right and the left. If you have any suggestions on how to make this pager easier to navigate, contact us at: normajeanalmodovar [@] gmail.com

fbi page

The FBI statistics and reports presented on this page show a much different picture of the numbers of persons who are actually victims of human trafficking, regardless of their age. The numbers of minors who are arrested each year for prostitution or related offenses such as disorderly conduct are so far removed from the 'guesstimates' given by the faith based organizations (victim pimps) that one wonders why these people aren't charged with fraud and perjury. Sex worker rights activists do not expect that the public will take our word for it that these numbers cited by those with a political agenda are not only highly inflated but purposely misleading to generate income for their grand plan to 'eradicate' all commercial sex.

We believe that there is no better way to prove that the numbers of sex trafficking victims as postulated by the prostitution abolitionists and so called 'anti- traffickers' are complete falsehoods than to use the government's own statistics- collected and posted on their websites. This page is dedicated to helping those who are interested in learning the truth, to find the source of the statistics in the multi- year spreadsheets, graphs and charts we compiled using the government data, reports and records.

STATISTICS/ DATA FROM 1981 TO 2012/2013 [WITH LINKS TO ORIGINAL SOURCES, DOCUMENTS, REPORTS] OF ACTUAL ARRESTS, CRIMES REPORTED AND OTHER RELEVANT DATA PRESENTED AS CHARTS, GRAPHS AND MULTI- YEAR SPREADSHEETS. THESE DOCUMENTS SHOW THE NUMBERS OF ARRESTS AND AGES OF PERSONS ARRESTED [*MALE, FEMALE- ADULT AND CHILD] FOR PROSTITUTION AND DISORDERLY CONDUCT, AS WELL AS CONTAIN COMPARISONS TO NUMBERS OF VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, RAPES AND ARRESTS FOR RAPES/ CHILD SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIM RESCUE EFFORTS.

ALL OF OUR MULTI- YEAR SPREADSHEETS, GRAPHS AND CHARTS ON THIS PAGE WERE COMPILED USING THE DATA AND STATISTICS FROM THE FBI BUREAU OF JUSTICE STATISTICS. A LIST OF THE VARIOUS TABLES WHICH WERE USED TO COMPILE EACH MULTI- YEAR SPREADSHEET, GRAPH OR CHART CAN BE FOUND IN THE LAST SECTION OF THIS PAGE .

THESE ARE NOT OUR 'ESTIMATES' OR 'STATS'- BUT ARE STATISTICS PUBLISHED BY THE US GOVERNMENT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE NUMBERS ON OUR SPREADSHEETS- TAKE IT UP WITH THE GOVERNMENT.

Although most of this data is available for years prior to 1981, the analysis of government statistics over a period of 30 plus years, 1981- 2012- ought to be sufficient to prove the scope of the lies, hysteria and outrageous claims made by prostitution abolitionists/ victim pimps of the far left and religious right, as well as the fabricated claims of pandering politicians, the compliant media and the US Government itself -in the thoroughly misguided and extremely harmful attempt to 'eradicate' all consenting adult commercial sex. Anyone who believes that prostitution will ever be 'abolished' need only look at the government's 'success' with its previous and current wars against other 'vices'- from alcohol prohibition, drugs, homosexuality, abortion, gambling etc. to see that these vices are never going away and the costly and futile attempts to eliminate them has and will always result in the corruption of law enforcement and the criminal justice system, as well as great harm to those whom the government penalizes for daring to challenge the government's authority to control our lives and our bodies.

*Currently the US Government does not recognize any other gender than 'male' and 'female,' so there is no method to determine how many arrests were of persons 'outside' those two 'acceptable' genders.

REPORTS AND TABLES USED TO COMPILE OUR MULTI- YEAR DOCUMENTS: (there are many other tables on the FBI website which contain some of the same information but are sorted by different criteria such as by population, urban and non urban areas etc.- the tables shown below were used because they contain more of the information related to our interests than those other tables. As noted above, many of those tables contain different statistics for the same 'crimes' or' numbers of arrests' and we have no way to ascertain which statistics are current and which were preliminary statistics)

REPORTS:

  • CRIMINAL VICTIMIZATION REPORTS- gives comparison of crimes in previous years to year of current report- especially important for numbers of violent rapes and sexual assaults, domestic violence, and other comparative information from the previous and current year of the report:

    • FROM THE 2011 REPORT:
      • 2008: approximately 1,740 children died due to child abuse or neglect. More than three-quarters (80 percent) of children who were killed were younger than 4 years of age. (1,392)

guide

GUIDE TO USING OUR LINKS, CHARTS, SPREADSHEETS ETC.

Each year, the government collects all the statistics and data from every state and then sorts this information using different criteria, such as by age, by gender, by city and state, by urban and suburban populations to create its tables and reports, and in some of its tables, it compares data/ statistics from previous years in segments of 1, 5 and 10 years. Therefore, it has a significant number of tables in its various sections, containing some of the same information but presented in different categories. A list of all the tables in each section and a summary of what each table contains can be found here (the links below are to the 2012 tables and statistics; the same information is available for all previous years by searching for the year as follows "Crime in the United States- 2011" etc.):

Our primary interest is in the numbers of reported crimes of violence such as rape, sexual assault, domestic and intimate partner violence, and the reported number of arrests for rape, sexual assault, prostitution and disorderly conduct, drug use and other 'vice' crimes. For easier reference, we highlighted only the above categories on most of the downloaded spreadsheets, and deleted most other crime statistics which are not relevant to our research. You can view the entire documents with all of the list of crimes and arrests at the FBI Bureau of Justice Statistics website and the FBI.gov Crime Stats website for the year and table number you wish to access.

In the page below, we link to only the tables, reports and summaries from which we took their data for our spreadsheets, based on the type of information we were seeking. This page was created to assist you in finding those documents/ tables/ reports to confirm the statistics we present here.

The FBI changed its formatting and record keeping through the years, which, in some cases, made it difficult to find the annual information that pertains to this issue. It is not easy to put all this information together in a comprehensive and simple to navigate page, and most likely we will be re-arranging this page as we receive feedback from users.

MULTIPLE YEAR SPREADSHEETS ARE NECESSARY TO PUT THE BASIC NUMBERS OF CRIMES, ARRESTS, AGES AND GENDER OF THOSE ARRESTED INTO CONTEXT AND SHOW WHETHER OR NOT THE NUMBERS ARE CONSISTENT YEAR AFTER YEAR.
BY PUTTING ALL THE DATA AND STATISTICS INTO SPREADSHEETS, WE CAN THEN COMPARE STATS OF ONE TYPE OF ACTIVITY WITH ANOTHER AND ASK RELEVANT QUESTIONS SUCH AS WHY SOME VICTIMS ARE MORE IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THAN OTHERS:
IT IS EASY FOR THOSE WITH AN AGENDA TO MAKE CLAIMS ABOUT ALLEGED VICTIMS WHEN NO ONE HAS THE RAW DATA TO CHALLENGE THEIR 'GUESSTIMATES,' WHICH IS WHY HAVING SPREADSHEETS WITH GOVERNMENT STATISTICS AND WHICH COVER A SIGNIFICANT TIME PERIOD IS SO IMPORTANT:
THE NUMBER OF ARRESTS OF ADULT OR JUVENILE PROSTITUTES DOES NOT REFLECT THE ACTUAL NUMBER OF PERSONS IN PROSTITUTION, BUT IN A CRIMINALIZED SYSTEM, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WAY TO KNOW HOW MANY THERE ARE, WHICH IS WHY IT IS SO EASY FOR ABOLITIONISTS TO MAKE UNVERIFIABLE 'GUESSTIMATES'

overview of page

OVERVIEW OF THIS PAGE:

WHY: [COMMENTARY] The US Government provides a wealth of information relating to actual statistics, reported crimes and arrests for a variety of criminal offenses. If one takes the time to peruse their websites, one can find all sorts of interesting statistics which disprove the histrionic allegations of the prostitution abolitionists/ anti- trafficking/ victim pimp crusaders like the Polaris Project (among the many, many faith based victim pimp 'rescue and restore' organizations vying for the public handout). If only journalists would be thorough in their investigation of this issue and get their facts straight, they would stop repeating the same old tired fabrications that have circulated since the last anti- sex-trafficking campaign a century ago.

The stories become less and less credible as sports events and other gatherings of 'testosterone-overdosed men and their would-be sex slaves' draws these zealots into a frenzy of 'social activism' as this January 17, 2014 Christianpost.com article by alleged journalist and pedophile priests/ evangelical predators apologist Alex Murashko: "You've read the devastating statistics (An estimated 27 million are enslaved in the world today; Approximately 80 percent of human trafficking victims are women and are children (boys and girls); human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world-second only to drug trafficking.)," states Calvary Chapel on its website. "But did you know that this epidemic is running rampant at one of the largest sporting events in the world?" BUT IT ISN'T TRUE AT ALL! SO WHY DO YOU NOT FACT CHECK RATHER THAN CONTINUE TO SPEW THESE LIES TO THE GULLIBLE PUBLIC? Murashko quotes from the Calvary Chapel website: "As we gear up for Super Bowl festivities on Feb. 2, there's a grim reality veiled behind the hype of this iconic sporting event: human sex trafficking. As hundreds of thousands of sports fans descend upon New Jersey and the surrounding area, traffickers are among them. And they're not coming to watch the game," the post on the church's website continues. "They're coming to buy and sell human beings, most of which are underage girls. The horror doesn't just masquerade itself within the weekend revelries – it goes on for weeks and months after the game clock has run out."

EXCUSE ME... BUT WHERE IS THE PROOF? TO WHAT UNDERAGE GIRLS DO YOU REFER? BECAUSE SURELY IF THOSE 'UNDERAGE GIRLS' WERE OUT THERE THE FBI AND LOCAL COPS WOULD FIND THEM, WOULDN'T THEY???? BUT SO FAR, EVERY SINGLE EVENT AT WHICH THE 'SEX TRAFFICKING' HYSTERIA HAS REARED ITS UGLY LYING HEAD, THOSE GIRLS NEVER MATERIALIZE... EVER... AND IT ISN'T BECAUSE OF YOUR CRUSADE- IT'S BECAUSE THEY JUST AREN'T OUT THERE BEING 'BOUGHT AND SOLD'... and why is the Catholic Church- of all institutions filled with pedophile priests and those who cover up their crimes- participating in this at all? Or the Evangelicals, whom Billy Graham's grandson says the sex abuse among those evangelicals is even worse than that of the Catholic Church...

The article continues "During this year's Super Bowl, 'a large network of religious women and men and varying congregations,' including an alliance of Roman Catholic institutional investors in greater New York, which use their influence to address social concerns, will focus on human trafficking, according to NJ.com...'" We say- why not address the more pressing concerns about those priests and the bishops and archbishops who cover up for their multitude of crimes against children? As the LA Times notes "Archbishop (later Cardinal) Roger M. Mahony and a top advisor plotted to conceal child molestation by priests from law enforcement, including keeping them out of California to avoid prosecution..." That would be hundreds of cases of victims of pedophile priests whom CARDINAL Mahony wanted to protect because exposure of those crimes was a threat to his 'agenda,' priests who were deliberately transferred from one parish to another to keep them from being prosecuted for their crimes of molesting the very children whom this tenth rate journalist and others like him believe are going to be kidnapped and forced into the sex trade to become sex trafficking victims at the Super Bowl... isn't the sex abuse of children by priests and evangelicals of any 'social concern' for those who are rallying around a primarily non- existent problem? [When 3,900 federal, state and local law enforcement agents in 76 cities over three days can only find 105 child victims to rescue (that's 37.1 agents per child rescued, 1.4 child victims per city) can that really be as big a problem as priests and preachers, teachers and cops molesting children and no one caring?]

superbowl imageAs Wired journalist Alexander Abad- Santos says in his January 6, 2014 article "The Super Bowl Sex-Trafficking Story That Just Won't Die" ... "With Super Bowl XLVIII on the horizon, it's now time for the annual "here come the prostitutes" story, an annual exercise is fear-mongering over a threat that never materializes. Stop us if you've heard this one before. Because you probably have. The same story was written about the Super Bowl host city in 2011 and again 2010 and again 2009 ... and again before basically every Super Bowl in living memory. (The Super Bowl has even been called the single largest human trafficking incident in the United States.) Every city that hosts the NFL title game goes through this, but there's one problem with the narrative. It isn't exactly true..... In 2012, The Houston Press's Peter Kotz thoroughly tore apart that story, explaining that law enforcement officials in the cities where past Super Bowls occurred never actually saw increases in prostitution busts or the number of trafficked prostitutes, even despite increased efforts to catch johns, pimps, and traffickers. "We didn't see a huge influx in prostitutes coming into Tampa. The arrests were not a lot higher. They were almost the same," a Tampa police spokeswoman said in 2009, and a police spokesperson in Phoenix said in 2008 that there was nothing out of the ordinary: "We may have had certain precincts that were going gangbusters looking for prostitutes, but they were picking up your everyday street prostitutes," and not foreign women "imported" for the event.

Further, the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women (GAATW) — which has a vested interest in promoting this topic — said in a report that
cost of rumorthere's NO correlation between sporting events and a rise in prostitution. "There is no evidence that large sporting events cause an increase in trafficking for prostitution," the organization concluded. They also included this table which looked at the world's biggest sporting events, and the lack of evidence to back what they essentially say is a "myth." The history of those events make this year's claims of trafficking even harder to believe and bring up questions of the gullibility of the media. The "Super Bowl = prostitutes" story begins to look more and more like a lazy journalistic trope or an urban legend. Or more cynically, a cheap attempt by some local politician using the Super Bowl media blitz to score points by standing up to the menace of sex work..."

But hey, who would know more about this? A so called 'journalist' who can't bother to fact check his story before he spreads more lies, or someone from the Global Alliance Against Traffic in Women? Or even the cops and the FBI agents who monitor this stuff?

"Top FBI agent in Dallas praises Super Bowl security effort, sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking..." "The top FBI agent in Dallas on Wednesday praised the massive effort to keep residents and thousands of out-of-towners safe during Super Bowl XLV... Speaking at a gathering of the North Texas Crime Commission, Robert Casey Jr. gave security preparations for the Feb. 6 game an “A-plus” grade, crediting the “tremendous coordination” by many agencies.

Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl. But Casey, special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did. “In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”

Why is it so much easier for people to believe these lies than it is to believe the truth? Because people WANT there to be victims of sex trafficking? Because people NEED a boogeyman? Because they would rather that the boogeyman NOT be someone whom their children look up to and 'respect' like cops or priests? From the 2011 sex trafficking 'threat'- "Super Bowl prostitution: 100,000 hookers didn't show, but America's latest political scam did..." "Had elected officials done even the slightest research, they would have known it was myth. But this had little to do with protecting women and children. Think of it as a combination religious revival and political scam..." Unfortunately, neither the politicians OR the media can't be bothered to do any research on something they KNOW will get them readers AND voters... because who wouldn't be against 'sex trafficking' of women and children? The article continues: "Before every big game, church bells ring of a massive hooker invasion. Incurious newspapers parrot the claims; a five-minute Google search being too much trouble. Then politicians and activists climb aboard... The recipe for civic panic is placed in the oven, set for baking to a charred husk... Yet when each event ends with just a handful of arrests, police admit the invasion was nothing more than myth. The panic whimpers away to seclusion, only to resurrect itself just in time for the next big show...."

It is understandable that these bizarre claims were repeated ad nauseam 100 years ago, given that there was no internet and certainly no government department which gathered such information and made it publicly available. This is not the case today and journalists have no excuse for failing to do their due diligence to find and report the truth. Next time you read one of their articles in which they fabricate numbers of hundreds or thousands of 'sex trafficking' victims- ask them where they got those statistics... and where is the proof of those 'estimates.' Then refer them to the FBI website and show them that those numbers they print in their poorly researched (by which we mean no research whatsoever) articles cannot be confirmed anywhere and are in fact disproved BY the FBI arrest statistics.

POST SUPERBOWL 2014- HOW MANY CHILDREN WERE 'RECOVERED/ RESCUED/ ARRESTED? According to the FBI, 45 different agencies, 50 law enforcement agents in 4 states 'recovered' 16 children (ages 13 to 17), arrested 45 'pimps' and their 'associates' (meaning that each alleged pimp once again had the services of  .35 child- not a very lucrative venture, for sure!) Somehow, the 10,000 or more children and adult women who were supposed to show up for this event did not get their invitation and didn't make it this time. Oh well, maybe next year....  http://www.fbi.gov/news/pressrel/press-releases/sixteen-juveniles-recovered-in-joint-super-bowl-operation-targeting-underage-prostitution CBS news coverage here "The FBI’s Super Bowl operation efforts are part of the Innocence Lost National Initiative that was established in 2003. The initiative is responsible for recovering more than 3,100 children. The investigations and subsequent 1,400 convictions have resulted in lengthy sentences, including 11 life terms and the seizure of more than $3.1 million in assets, according to the release..." Hmm, over the 11 years it has been in operation, that averages 281 recoveries per year, 127 convictions per year,  $281,818 assets seized per year (and how much did these operations cost the taxpayers?) which amounts to about $2,214 per convicted pimp.... a PHENOMENAL SUCCESS FOR SURE! (and to think there are 100,000 to 300,000 child victims forced into prostitution every year... too bad they can't be found despite the valiant efforts of all those victim pimp agencies and law enforcement agents!)

And here's an interesting development out of Arizona and  (McCain Institute) Cindy McCain's funded project  at the Arizona State University School of Social Work (run by 'victim pimp' professor  Dominique Roe Sepowitz who is training even more little 'victim pimps' - her mindless students who believe every word of her nonsense and go out to 'rescue' the poor trafficking victims in their 'Project Rose' program where 'victims' are offered "Jail or Jesus")-  just weeks after the 2014 Superbowl, she and her little bright and shiny  'rescue' ghouls have put together their 'study' on the sex trafficking situation during the Superbowl. Most research takes months or even years to complete and be able to present credible evidence of their theories, unless of  course you are a 'victim pimp' whose every word is gospel to the media and fellow 'victim pimps.'

"Each day between Jan. 24 and Feb. 2, researchers found between 201 and 459 online ads involving prostitution in the New York and New Jersey area. The study compared those results to Phoenix during the same period: 132 to 275 ads each day.
"As you can see, there are a significant number of ads being placed online to sell sex," said Dominique Roe-Sepowitz, the study's author and director of ASU's Office of Sex Trafficking Intervention Research, part of the School of Social Work."

Most sex workers post their ads every day- not just once, so during the time period that 'researchers' (students following their professor's abolitionist agenda and direction) found between 201 and 459 online ads involving prostitution, the likelihood of those ads being posted by the same persons every day, rather than a different alleged 'sex trafficking victim'  makes this research useless. What's even more astonishing is that this miniscule number of ads falls far short of the untold thousands of 'sex trafficking victims' who were supposed to be trafficked to the Superbowl by their  evil traffickers, yet they claim that this is a 'significant number of ads being placed online.' Not unlike the FBI claims when they run their annual "Operation Cross Country" sting and manage to 'rescue' a little over 100 'children' and 150 pimps, using an average 35 agents per each 'rescue.'

Here are the numbers for that time period (based on 201 ads per day, 459 ads per day in NY/NJ and 152 ads per day and 275 ads per day in Phoenix):

superbowl ads

Notice that during this time there are nearly as many online ads placed in Phoenix - a smaller city which was not hosting the sports event, yet the entire NY/ NJ area has not that many more ads either at the 201 ads per day or at the 459 ads per day. Again, it is highly likely that most of  not all ads are repeat ads every day and not unique ads. If the statistics from the university study take into account the repeat ads and are claiming that these ARE unique ads, the numbers still fall FAR short of the estimated 10,000 to 100,000 'sex trafficking victims,'  and the 100 arrests of prostitutes and 16 'rescued' minors despite the thousands of law enforcement agents who were tasked with finding and rescuing those 'sex trafficking victims'  indicates that either the cops are incredibly inept or that the 'sex trafficking victims' got lost on their way to NY/NJ.

Did the research include online ads from well before  or after the event? We don't know.

traffic_in_young_girlsThe crusade against consenting adult prostitution parallels the government's previous 'crusades' against the so called 'white slave trade,' porn, masturbation, homosexuality and abortion that were so 'popular' with the progressives and religious moralists throughout the past century, as well as its' current 'war on drugs.' There are still ongoing crusades against gay marriage AND abortion although currently the government is not involved, only the religious zealots/bigots who can't stand the thought that adults might engage in any sexual behavior not condoned by their Bible. Hundreds of millions- if not hundreds of billions of dollars have been spent indulging the prohibitionists of whatever flavor whose psychotic fantasies lead them to believe it is their right-- whether God-given or due to the luck of their birth, education or their election to public office-- to control the lives of others. Yet none of those moral or social crusades have ever done anything to reduce violence in society or make saints out of stubborn sinners, and have instead allowed police and judicial corruption to flourish; destroying millions of lives, families, communities because those in 'charge' either have a very selective memory when it comes to history or don't really care that the outcome of all prohibitions of consenting adult 'vices' and sexual preferences has always been and always will be the corruption of those who are entrusted with enforcing the laws these moral and social busybodies impose on the rest of us. Their attitude is "Oh, THAT!" as they roll their eyes and dismiss the harmful consequences of their irrational policies as not even worthy of mention. And yet they claim that decriminalized prostitution, or drugs or gambling will destroy the 'moral fabric of society," as if the resulting police/ judicial corruption from the continued prohibition of ice_cream_parlorsthose activities was somehow 'moral.' One would think that a justice system that condones, permits, covers up  or overlooks police corruption which is inherent in the arbitrary and selective enforcement of  'vice' laws, would be far more detrimental to the 'moral fabric of society' than what consenting adults do with or to each other in private. Unfortunately, these people blinded  by an over-inflated sense of their own importance do not see it that way.  And as a result, there is no justice.

(image above left -"Fighting the Traffic in Young Girls- Or War on the White Slave Trade" Ernest Bell 1910 Image left- from the same book "Ice cream parlors of the city and fruit stores combined, largely run by foreigners, are the places where scores of girls have taken their first step downward..." Who knew that Baskin and Robbins parlors were nothing more than dens of iniquity where chaste virgins would take their first step toward 'sex slavery'? )

*

These people do not care at all about a woman's right to choose ANYTHING (except for the feminists who support 'choice' ONLY if that 'choice' is abortion)- they consider all female sex workers to be victims- who need rescuing through the arbitrary and selective enforcement of laws which give government agents so much control over our lives and bodies.

As Dorchen Leidholdt, a founding board member of the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women - a group which receives over $1 MILLION dollars per year in donations and is an activist group pushing the change, acknowledges "They have the power to pick and choose the cases they want to prosecute. They don't have to prosecute local pimps if they don't want to." Is this individual completely unaware of the consequences of laws which can be selectively and arbitrarily enforced? Does Dorchen Leidholdt not know anything of history and previous prohibitions? OR does Dorchen Leidholdt even care what power such laws give to cops to abuse and extort those whom the abolitionists claim are vulnerable victims? Just ask the victims of Anchorage Alaska Police Officer Anthony Rollins, or of San Diego Police Officer Thomas John Sadler, among MANY, MANY other rapist cops. Rollins was a decorated police officer who once received a reward from a prevention thomas sadlerorganization, Standing Together Against Rape. How ironic that a man with a penchant for raping prostitutes would receive such an award, but it is truly a very common occurrence for those yelling the loudest about 'protecting prostitutes' from exploitation to be the ones abusing/ exploiting us (think Eliot Spitzer for example who during his governorship of NY enacted stringent 'anti- trafficking' laws  to stop the 'exploitation of modern day slaves'' even as he flew his 'sex slaves' to other states to entertain him whenever he was out of state- which was in violation of the MANN ACT-  a FEDERAL FELONY,   and also State Department official Randall Tobias- who was in charge of enforcing the anti- prostitution pledge for organizations receiving US Government funding for their AIDS projects) .

Sex worker rights activists realize that journalists, politicians and others with an abolitionist agenda are not going to take the time to research the actual numbers because they have no incentive to do so. The campaign against so called 'sex trafficking' (or what we call the "War on Sex Workers") is the moral/ social crusade du jour and to write the truth about it would be detrimental to the career of any politician or mainstream media journalist. In the US Government's all out war against prostitution, regardless of the harm to the sex workers or those whom the prostitution abolitionists claim to want to protect, truth has no place (in their opinion, not ours). Which is why it isn't all that surprising when op ed pieces such as the one which appeared in the 'Dallas Morning News' on November 23, 2013, in support of a 'crack down on sex traffickers,' claiming that there were "300,000 sex trafficking cases being prosecuted every year, in Houston alone " despite facts to the contrary.

These people are getting very bold with their lies. Thankfully there are people out there who call them on their BS, even though we know that those who read the original article are not likely to go back and read the revised version. We note that they did remove the 'factually challenged' number from the page after it was pointed out to them that their claim was absolutely not true (aka- a LIE!). Nevertheless, those who did not see the update will forever after cite the wildly inaccurate 'statistics' posted in the op-ed piece the 'Dallas Morning News' first published, and like a rock thrown in a pond, the ripple effect of the original lie will keep going and going and going.

From criminal defense attorney Mark Bennett's website:

"Dallas Morning News’ Credulity = Incredibility [updated because math is hard]"

"Accord­ing to the Har­ris County Dis­trict Clerk’s web­site, there hasn’t been a pros­e­cu­tion for sex traf­fick­ing in Hous­ton since 2010. But when peo­ple say “sex traf­fick­ing,” they may mean “com­pelling pros­ti­tu­tion.” There have been two compelling-prostitution cases filed in Har­ris County this year.

Not 300,000. Two."

Hmmm, but those numbers are SO darn close... it is very easy to see how they mistook '2' cases for '300,000' Hey, when you have an ideological agenda to promote, who cares about facts, right?

Another excellent commentary on this "Dallas Morning News" blunder:

"Over 200,000 Innocent Defendants In Houston Prisons" Simple Justice- Criminal Defense Blog

"Mistakes happen? Sure. But mistakes of this magnitude should never make it past fact-checking. It’s inexcusable." Scott H. Greenfield

Indeed it is inexcusable. And yet the lies continue.

Do you doubt that this is a concerted effort to use whatever means necessary to 'eradicate' what the progressives and religious right call a 'social evil'? Here is the 2013 "Prevention: Fighting Sex Trafficking By Curbing Demand for Commercial Sex Acts" document from the US Government website which 'splains it all (with our editorial comments, of course), and an article which shows how the ideologically biased abolitionists conflate sex work with sex trafficking: (click on images to view) It is for this reason sex worker rights activist must fight back and present the actual statistics given by our own government. While we cannot guarantee that the numbers on the government's website are accurate, numbers which are obtained through reported arrests and/or crimes are far closer to the real numbers than the ones touted by the 'victim pimps' who need every single 'victim' they can conjure up in order to show a real need to continue to arrest consenting adults for engaging in consenting adult commercial sex. Those phantom victims generate funding and allow the victim pimps to expand their 'mission' to 'rescue and restore' adult women who have not indicated that they are in need of rescuing.

WHAT: [COMMENTARY]

The online government resources can be a bit overwhelming to navigate, as the information we present here is scattered on may different parts of the US Government websites, and there are many tables and spreadsheets which offer sometimes contradictory statistics, and in some cases fail to note certain very important facts. We hope to make this information easier to access and use for any research that journalists, students and academics may conduct using the information we have put together in our spreadsheets, graphs and charts. Much of the material is raw data- and all of it can be found on the government websites with the links we provide.

Please note that there are inconsistencies (not ours) in many of the statistics, which appear to change from one table to another inconsistenciesand in other annual documents that the government makes available online. And it does not appear that the Bureau of Justice Statistics updates any of its' previous tables for each year, meaning that some arrest stats in their summary reports published the following year do not match the information in the tables from any given year. I.E. the 2012 Criminal Victimization Report shows a statistic of 244,190 rapes and sexual assaults in 2011, but in the Criminal Victimization Report FOR 2011, it showed 243,800. We do our utmost to use the most recent statistics given, but it is not clear how the government counts specific information or why there are disparities between one government document and another. Some of the discrepancies range from just a few (which can be accounted for because they round off their numbers) but in other documents, the numbers differ by as much as 1,000 to 10,000 or more (see chart above for examples of the variances in the 2012 tables).

red_arrowWe also note that the US Government does not have a separate criminal offense category for 'human / or sex trafficking,' other than when they publish their periodic reports. Also there is no separate category for the 'crimes' of 'pandering' and 'pimping' within the arrests for prostitution. In most states, prostitution is a misdemeanor, while pandering and pimping are felonies. A number of states have re-classified 'pandering and pimping' as human/sex trafficking, with severely increased mandatory prison sentences up to life. In places where there are not sufficient 'human/sex traffickers' to facilitate obtaining government grants to help the poor sex trafficking victim realize they are a victim, cops have become very creative and charge sex workers with trafficking of themselves, guaranteeing that they can keep that federal government grant money coming in to pay their overtime and other perks (begging the question, who is the real trafficker here, if the cops are financially benefiting from an increased number of victims and traffickers- who are one and the same????) ...

meet my pimp

"Pimping" laws did and do not just refer to someone who 'sold' the sexual services of others, but red_arrowinclude anyone to whom a prostitute gave/ gives any of his/her earnings from sex work, including one's family members, friends, landlord, bank, grocery store, etc. whether or not the money was given to others voluntarily by adult sex workers to pay for goods and services that the sex worker wished to purchase. Any recipient of the money earned by a prostitute, regardless of whether or not the recipient knew the person was a prostitute, can now be charged with human trafficking and sent to prison for decades or even for life, and be placed on the sex offender registry for life. And yet, if they are arrested and charged with a crime, probation sentences are handed out to cops who rape children and prostitutes... and they never even bother to search for the 89% of rapists whose victims have reported being a victim of rape or sexual assault. Law enforcement agents who rape children, adult men and women and prostitutes and who are given probation or minimal sentences do not have to register as sex offenders. [San Diego Police Officer Daniel Dana, among many others]

Furthermore, when law enforcement agents seize the money and property of alleged pimps or madams, the money is NOT given to the alleged prostitute/ victim, but is used by law enforcement to continue the crusade against all consenting adult commercial sex. If the government really believed that a prostitute was forced to give up any of their earnings to someone else, why would they not return that money which they seized from alleged traffickers to the alleged victims? For the same reason that the alleged victims of sex trafficking are arrested?

Recently we learned of a NY call girl who was forced to work for the DA's office, in order to set up the madam known as the Soccer Madam, Anna Gristina. "Over several wildly turbulent years, Rebecca Woodard went from making thousands of dollars a day working for two of the city’s most notorious madams to wearing a wire to help bring down one of them, she told The News, speaking out for the first time in a wide-ranging, one-on-one interview... Manhattan prosecutors insisted she continue seeing clients while working undercover — and then forced her to turn over all of her earnings and gifts, the sultry blond said in her talk with The News." So, in actual fact, the prosecutors were pimping and pandering- the very crimes with which they wanted to charge the madam... and not only were they expecting Rebecca to continue to see the clients- WHO WERE NEVER CHARGED WITH A CRIME- THE PROSECUTORS TOOK ALL HER MONEY AND GIFTS AND MADE HER WORK FOR THEM FOR NOTHING.....

Can you imagine the outrage from the public if the prosecutors had made a victim of rape continue to visit her rapist and allow him to rape her over and over again just so they could get more evidence of the crime of rape? In the end, all of the evidence she obtained for them was inadmissible...

"Prosecutors forced Woodard to continue seeing clients while she worked as an undercover informant — but with one major catch: She had to hand over all of her earnings and gifts.“When someone requires you to do something you don’t want to do and then you don’t even get the benefit of that, it’s a terrible feeling,” Woodard says. Having to turn over all her earnings was crippling.
“There was a day I had $76 in my pocket. That’s it,” Woodard says. “I didn’t know how I was going to pay for rent — how I was going to put food on the table for my daughter.”

After more than two years of working undercover, Woodard finally decided she had had enough and demanded a lawyer.
The assistant district attorney flipped out on her, but she didn’t hear from the office again until 11 months later.
The news she finally got from prosecutors was devastating: The recordings she had obtained had to be scrapped because they would be inadmissible in court.
“You made me go through hell and back 28,000 times, and that’s it,” she says she told the assistant district attorney." NYDN 12/30/2013

Hey- it was all for her own good. After all, she was being exploited by the men who were paying her so much money, which allowed her to survive and take care of her daughter. She should be grateful that they were trying to rescue her... and didn't send her to prison for her own good!

SHE WORKED UNDERCOVER FOR THE MANHATTAN PROSECUTOR FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS? AND THE GOVERNMENT AGENCY FORCED HER TO CONTINUE TO ENGAGE IN PROSTITUTION AND GIVE THE GOVERNMENT AGENCY ALL HER MONEY?????????????????

WHO IS THE PIMP HERE? THE GOVERNMENT!!!!! PROSTITUTION ABOLITIONISTS CLAIM THAT ALL PROSTITUTION IS 'LIKE RAPE' AND YET THERE IS NO OUTRAGE OVER THE GOVERNMENT FORCING THIS WOMAN, UNDER THREAT OF ARREST, TO CONTINUE TO BE 'LIKE RAPED' AND HANDING OVER ALL THE MONEY SHE 'EARNED' TO HER GOVERNMENT PIMPS!!!

WHAT DID THEY DO WITH HER MONEY?

In order to make this page easier to navigate, all definitions other than rape, prostitution, disorderly conduct have been deleted. Please click the Definitions of Offenses link above to view the entire document listing all definitions of criminal offenses on the FBI website.

Forcible rape

OLD DEFINITION OF RAPE TO JANUARY 2013: The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will. Rapes by force and attempts or assaults to rape, regardless of the age of the victim, are included. Statutory offenses (no force used—victim under age of consent) are excluded.

ACCORDING TO THE FBI WEBSITE, AS OF JANUARY, 2013, THE DEFINITION OF RAPE HAS BEEN CHANGED TO REFLECT THE TRAUMA WHICH ALL RAPE INFLICTS ON ITS VICTIMS. GOING FORWARD, IN ALL FUTURE TABLES AND REPORTS, IT WILL INCLUDE MALE AND FEMALE RAPE- WHEREAS PREVIOUSLY IT WAS DEFINED SOLELY AS THE PENETRATION OF A VAGINA BY A PENIS, AND EXCLUDED MALES, TRANSGENDER PERSONS AND ACTS OF RAPE BY OBJECTS OTHER THAN A PENIS:
  • Penetration, no matter how slight, of the vagina or anus with any body part or object, or
  • oral penetration by a sex organ of another person, without the consent of the victim

The revised definition:
  • Includes either Male or Female Victims or Offenders.
  • Includes instances in which the victim is incapable of giving consent because of temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity, (e.g., due to the influence of drugs or alcohol or because of age).
  • Reflects the various forms of sexual penetration understood to be Rape.

REGARDING FORCIBLE RAPE, PRIOR TO THE CHANGE IN THE DEFINITION OF RAPE:

Many states define the term "rape" as non consensual vaginal penetration, rather than any coercive sexual activity, such as forced oral copulation or anal penetration, or other unwanted sexual acts. In those states which define rape solely as coercive vaginal penetration, all other forced sexual acts are defined as 'sexual assault.' Unfortunately these acts are considered less 'heinous' and are given less weight in reporting such acts and when an alleged rapist goes to court. One such example is that of NYPD officer Michael Pena- whose shocking sexual assault on a 25 year old school teacher resulted in a 'not guilty' of the more serious charge of rape because there was no vaginal penetration. "A New York police officer who brutally sodomized and inflicted oral sex upon a schoolteacher at gunpoint has not been convicted of rape, despite DNA evidence and witness testimonies about the violent attack.New York’s state law excludes nonconsensual oral and anal sex from the definition of “rape”, calling them “sexual assault” instead, the New York Daily News reports."[ALL THE STATISTICS ON THIS SITE REFER TO THE NUMBER OF REPORTED RAPES UP TO THE END OF 2012, EXCEPT WHERE THE INFORMATION IS GIVEN AS 'VIOLENT RAPES AND SEXUAL ASSAULTS'- AS LISTED IN THE CRIMINAL VICTIMIZATION REPORTS. IN FUTURE UPDATES BEGINNING WITH 2013, THE NUMBERS WILL REFLECT THE NEW DEFINITION]

Prostitution and commercialized vice

  • The unlawful promotion of or participation in sexual activities for profit, including attempts. To solicit customers or transport persons for prostitution purposes; to own, manage, or operate a dwelling or other establishment for the purpose of providing a place where prostitution is performed; or to otherwise assist or promote prostitution.

Sex offenses (except forcible rape, prostitution, and commercialized vice)

  • Offenses against chastity, common decency, morals, and the like. Incest, indecent exposure, and statutory rape are included. Attempts are included.

Disorderly conduct

  • Any behavior that tends to disturb the public peace or decorum, scandalize the community, or shock the public sense of morality.

NOTE: THE CHARGE OF 'DISORDERLY CONDUCT' TO MAKE AN ARREST IS OFTEN USED INSTEAD OF THE 'OFFENSE' OF PROSTITUTION WHERE A SOLICITATION CANNOT BE PROVEN OR WHEN THE ALLEGED OFFENDER 'COOPERATES' WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENTS. BUT NOT ALL OR EVEN MOST OF THE DISORDERLY CONDUCT ARRESTS HAVE ANY CONNECTION TO PROSTITUTION. THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT PROVIDE INFORMATION WHICH WOULD CLARIFY WHICH DISORDERLY CONDUCT ARRESTS WERE INSTEAD OF A PROSTITUTION CHARGE AND WHICH WERE FOR SOME OTHER UNKNOWN TYPE OF 'CRIMINAL' ACTIVITY SUCH AS VIDEO-TAPING A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER(S) BEATING UP A HOMELESS PERSON, ETC.

[EVEN THOUGH 'DISORDERLY CONDUCT' IS A 'PART II' OFFENSE, APPARENTLY IT IS CONSIDERED MORE IMPORTANT TO APPREHEND INDIVIDUALS WHO 'SHOCK THE PUBLIC SENSE OF MORALITY' THAN IT IS TO ARREST THOSE WHO COMMIT VIOLENT RAPES, SEXUAL ASSAULTS AND DOMESTIC VIOLENCE -CONSIDERING HOW MANY PERSONS ARE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH DISORDERLY CONDUCT EACH YEAR. IT WOULD SEEM THAT THE PUBLIC SENSE OF 'MORALITY' IS NOT ALL THAT 'SHOCKED' BY THOSE ACTS OF VIOLENT RAPE, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR SEXUAL ASSAULTS, WHICH SHOCKS MY SENSE OF MORALITY BEYOND WORDS!]

Suspicion

Arrested for no specific offense and released without formal charges being placed.

[DO WE REALLY HAVE THE RESOURCES TO CONTINUE TO ARREST PEOPLE FOR 'NO SPECIFIC OFFENSE' WHEN WE HAVE SO VERY MANY ALLEGED RAPISTS, PEOPLE WHO COMMIT INTIMATE PARTNER VIOLENCE AND OTHER REAL CRIMES GOING UNSOLVED BECAUSE THERE ARE NOT SUFFICIENT RESOURCES TO PURSUE THOSE REAL CRIMINALS?]

"Eleventh Circuit US Court of Appeals allows false arrest lawsuit to proceed against cops who arrested motorist for being up to no good." THIS 2013 ruling says that no, the cops cannot arrest people based on nothing more than "contempt of cop" or being 'up to no good...' THIS RULING WILL NO DOUBT BE CHALLENGED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES NATIONWIDE...

red_arrowNOTE- THE GOVERNMENT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE 'CRIMES' OF "HUMAN TRAFFICKING" "SEX TRAFFICKING" "PIMPING AND PANDERING" IN ANY OF THE 'CRIMINAL OFFENSES' DEFINED ABOVE, NOR ARE THERE SEPARATE CATEGORIES FOR THOSE OFFENSES IN THEIR TABLES, DESPITE THE GOVERNMENT SPENDING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS EVERY YEAR LOOKING FOR THE ALLEGED VICTIMS. THEREFORE IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO KNOW HOW MANY PERSONS HAVE BEEN ARRESTED SPECIFICALLY FOR THOSE CRIMES.

2001 commercial sexual exploitWhat did we find in our research?

Well, the primary outcome of this research is the number of arrests of prostitutes over a thirty year period, which shows a much different picture of the actual ages of most prostitutes than the claimed 'average age of entry into prostitution being 12 or 13 or even 14." Even though we knew that it wasn't true, we had no way to prove it other than with our own personal first hand knowledge of others in the sex industry. Despite the fact that this statistic which is quoted incessantly  by the prostitution abolitionists comes from the 2001 full report "The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in the U.S., Canada and Mexico" ( by Richard J. Estes and Neil Alan Weiner), those who cite it seem not to have noticed that the study was of JUVENILES and that no one over 18 was included in the study:  page 92 of 260: "H.6 Ages of First Intercourse and Entry Into Juvenile Prostitution" and even worse for the real victims, these abolitionists completely ignore the rest of the information on this page (pg 92) which states "...some 105,000 substantiated or indicated cases of child sexual assault occur in the U.S. each year (NCCAN, 1996). The bulk of these assaults are perpetrated against children 12 years of age or younger and nearly all (84%) occur in the privacy of the child’s own home. Sadly, 96% of all child sexual assaults are perpetrated by persons known either to the child or the child’s family-- 96% by acquaintances (e.g., neighbors, teachers, coaches, physicians), or by members of the child’s own family (e.g., fathers, step-fathers, uncles, older siblings). Contrary to widely held belief, only a small number of substantiated child sexual assault are committed by strangers (DoJ, 2000b:29)"

percentage of sexual exploitationWhy is it that the prostitution abolitionists overlook the statement from the researchers that the majority of all child sexual assaults-  that is 96% of child sexual assaults - are perpetrated by those whom the child knows and trusts? And, according to this report, the children who comprise the majority of sexual exploitation victims are significantly younger than the victims of sex trafficking- MUCH younger- and yet the lack of concern for them by these people who argue "Even one is too many" and demand that all prostitution be eradicated to protect THOSE victims - is quite puzzling, unless you factor in the money that these abolitionists receive from their exaggerated claims of numbers of child sex trafficking victims and then it all fits into place.... follow the money and you will find the motive!

THERE IS NO MONEY IN CRUSADING AGAINST THE PREDATORS WHO ARE THE PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE CARRYING BADGES!

That's not to say that there are not juvenile prostitutes- because we know there are. And we also know that a man who is looking for a sexual relationship with a minor is not going to be seeking the (paid) sexual companionship of adults. Not to mention that other monitoring agencies of the US Government say that over 90% of the cases of child sexual exploitation are at the hands of someone whom the child knows and trusts.... not adults who are looking to pay for the services of children. Those predatorsinclude priests, preachers, rabbis, imams, teachers, coaches, babysitters, doctors, lawyers, parents and law enforcement agents- to name a few. In 2012, the Ohio State Attorney General's Office published its findings on "Domestic Sex Trafficking in Ohio"- and not surprising to sex worker activists, the report said that the number one buyers of sex from victims were law enforcement (page 17).ohio sex trafficking

[2006 CBS story on teachers that sexually exploit their students "Has Media Ignored Sex Abuse In School?" "[T]hink the Catholic Church has a problem?... The physical sexual abuse of students in schools is likely more than 100 times the abuse by priests."]

We included statistics for the 'crime' of "Disorderly Conduct" arrests as well- but these are  shown separate from  prostitution arrests. Many states use the "Disorderly Conduct" statutes rather than the prostitution laws when they are not able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that someone solicited  an act of prostitution (either a sex worker or a client). Many such arrests may originate as prostitution arrests but are later downgraded to 'disorderly conduct,' although there is no way to differentiate between those and other types of 'disorderly conduct.' Please see the definitions below for more information on that offense.

trafficking nonsense

The police were obviously arresting underage persons, if prostitutes were 12 or 13 or 14 when they began their career, so one cannot help but wonder how it is that so many adult prostitutes worked until they were in their 30s or 40s or even 50s and 60s...? According to the "trafficking and the sex trade" 'card'- the "average life span" of those who enter prostitution is '7 years'... but there is absolutely no evidence that this would or could be true, unless it means "life span" of one's career in sex work, after which one finds other work and transitions out of the sex industry, but even that has no evidence of being true.

The graphs and charts of these statistics show much more clearly what the 'average age' of persons in the sex industry looks like and it ISN'T 12 OR 13 OR 14....: (in order to be 'an average age,' one would have to see as many babies still in the womb or not even yet conceived being 'prostituted' as there are women over 40 or 50 in order to have an 'average age' be 12, or 13, or 14.... but those who make this claim leave out that the one word which makes more sense (even if it still isn't true...) they are referring to studies of juveniles, which excluded ANYONE over 18, as Janie Har says in her March 2, 2013 article "Is the average age of entry into sex trafficking between 12 and 14 years old?" "and the number in question is on page 92, under the section "ages of first intercourse and entry into juvenile prostitution,"' referring to the 2001 University of Pennsylvania study conducted by Richard Estes and Neil Weiner, entitled "Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children in the US, Canada and Mexico." Notice the word 'CHILDREN' in the title????

When asked about the oft quoted statistical lie "the average age of entry into prostitution and sex trafficking is between 12 to 14 years old," Arizona State University Professor Dominique Roe-Sepowitz said "That is statistically impossible." She goes on to say that MINOR or JUVENILE trafficking often starts between the ages of 12 and 14, but we say that given the greater number of 16 and 17 year olds who are arrested, that would NOT be an average. We know that cops are arresting very young children- male and female- for prostitution and there is no reason to think they would NOT arrest SOME of then just to skew the arrest statistics. A few states are now passing 'Safe Harbor" laws which may impact the statistics in the future when those states stop arresting minors for prostitution related activity, but no states have had such laws in the past and were arresting minors- which is reflected in the 32 year statistics.

COMMENTARY: From these arrest statistics, it would seem that the 'average age of entry' into prostitution is around 25, certainly not 12 or  13 or 14 (graph B). Of course, not all  sex workers get arrested during their lifetimes, and some of these arrests may be of the same individuals through the years, but it still shows that the majority of sex workers could not have been 12 or 13 or 14 when they 'entered' prostitution (Graph A). As noted above, the media and organizations (such as  Polaris Project,   Shared Hope International, rely  on the continued telling of this lie to raise money to help the "poor child victims") which quote this statistic leave out the fact that the studies to which they refer were studies of JUVENILE prostitutes, studies which excluded anyone over 18 from the research. Is it any wonder why they left off that VERY• IMPORTANT•DETAIL?

The 2001 report "The Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children In the U. S., Canada and Mexico" has much more very valuable information which is 'overlooked' (deliberately) by the victim pimps. Such information, if it were not so blatantly ignored by those with an agenda, changes the entire dialogue of the issue. Yes, "one child is too many" which is why it is difficult to understand why these people would leave out the 96% of all children who are sexually exploited - and focus on the possible 4% of those who are commercially 'exploited.' A good place to start is with this statement "The numbers presented in these exhibits do not, therefore, reflect the actual number of cases of the CSEC in the United States but, rather, what we estimate to be the number of children “at risk” of commercial sexual exploitation. A different type of study from ours--one that uses a different methodology and a higher investment of resources--is needed to carry out a national prevalence and incidence survey that could produce an actual headcount of the number of identifiable commercially sexually exploited children in the United States and the frequency with which they engage in such behaviors." (page 10)

In Exhibit 3.4, (pg #7) "More and Less Common Forms of CSE" [Child Sexual Exploitation]- "Sexual Molestation of both boys and girls by acquaintances"
• 49% of all sexual assaults against children are committed by persons known either to the child or the child’s family—teachers, coaches, physicians, scout leaders, neighbors (DoJ, 2000b) [and we add to this list - law enforcement officers- click link to see the list] "Sexual Molestation of both boys and girls by family members" • 47% of all sexual assaults against children are committed by members of the child’s own family—father, step-father, uncles, and older siblings (Araji, 1997; DoJ, 2000b; O’Brien, 1991)..."Comparatively few cases of child sexual abuse or child sexual assault are economic in nature" "Some 105,000 substantiated  or indicated cases of child sexual abuse occur in the U.S. each year. The majority of this abuse is perpetrated against children 12 years of age or younger and nearly all of it occurs in the privacy of the child’s own home (84%). Sadly, 96% of all confirmed child sexual abuse cases are perpetrated by persons known either to the child or to the child’s family (49%)--i.e., by neighbors, teachers, coaches, physicians--or by members of the child’s own family (47%)--i.e., fathers, step-fathers, uncles, grandfathers, older siblings. Contrary to widely held belief, only a small number of substantiated child sexual assaults are committed by strangers (4%). (pg #15)

Hmmmm....Why aren't the 96% of children who are sexually exploited important to the victim pimps? Granted, it would be rather difficult  to run a moral or social crusade when the predators against whom you are railing  are 'pillars' of the community- the men most likely to make tax deductible contributions to the non profit 'rescue' organizations. In some cases [ such as Jerry Sandusky pedophile coach],  the predators ARE the ones who start and run the organizations whose goals are to help 'at risk' or underprivileged youth... while helping themselves to the vulnerable children.  Mr. Sandusky's "Second Mile" organization was the perfect cover for finding, grooming and sexually exploiting the boys to whom he was attracted. And because of his standing in the community, no one would believe the boys who found the courage to tell someone what this sick, twisted predator was doing to them.

Another such 'pillar' was Keith Brown, the father of the Mormon musical family "The Five Browns." Originally from Texas and transplanted into Utah, The 5 Browns are a classical piano group  that features the three sisters and their two brothers. Dad Keith was their manager, and for the three sisters, their molester. He was sentenced to serve at least 10 years.  I cannot imagine that there would be a very successful crusade to investigate and arrest all the potential fathers, teachers, priests, evangelical preachers and cops who are much more likely to be sexually exploiting children than who are seeking to pay for the sexual services of their victims. NO ONE wants to believe that such upstanding members of the community could be capable of doing these things to children. It is MUCH easier to rally against strangers without names and faces who may be paying for their predations with children.

Here's where the age "12" comes in, which is used nearly universally by  'victim pimps' to claim that the average age of entry is 12/ 13/ 14-"Children and youth older than 12 years are prime targets for sexual exploitation by organized crime units." And so, from this, they extrapolate that the majority of persons who are recruited into prostitution are 12 years of age. But given that the study was of  'CHILDREN" and not "ALL PROSTITUTES" one must wonder why anyone would leave out that pertinent fact?

Why indeed? It is all about the money.  Faith based 'victim pimp' organizations such as "Shared Hope International," "Not For Sale" and the "Polaris Project" (for example) receive millions of dollars in both public and private donations as well as well as government grants. Without hundreds of thousands or even millions of (phantom) 'victims' and promoting the lie that sex trafficking is the 'fastest growing criminal enterprise' (arrests have been declining annually for quite some time- Graph C) how would these organizations rake in the millions of dollars? It it a fabrication that is told and retold, regardless of the government's inability to FIND those victims...

And then there are the 'journalists' who take the 'child sex trafficking' to a whole new level- now they are not talking about 12 year olds- they're talking about "Children as young as infants are sold on the black market, wrangled up from every corner of the globe and herded from one master to the next. Some of these young girls are used as sex slaves until they are "used up," -- after which usually ends in their murders..." Chelsea Hoffman... Chelsea, Chelsea- WHERE ARE THOSE VICTIMS? WHY CAN'T THE FBI OR THE COPS FIND THEM? IS IT BECAUSE SO MANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ARE THEMSELVES THE PIMPS OR HAVING SEX WITH LITTLE CHILDREN (CHILDREN AS YOUNG AS INFANTS- AS DID PREDATOR WICHITA KANSAS COP GREG P. NICKS WHO SEXUALLY ABUSED A 15 MONTH OLD GIRL? AT LEAST HE WAS GIVEN A LIFE SENTENCE, UNLIKE PIKE COUNTY OHIO CHIEF DEPUTY CLYDE FRANKLIN SANDERS JR. WHO PLEAD GUILTY TO RAPING A THREE YEAR OLD GIRL TWICE AND RECEIVED PROBATION... ) ?

Anyone can find out exactly how much money these groups receive each year, including the salaries received by the chief officers, by visiting this website: http://www.eri-nonprofit-salaries.com/?FuseAction=NPO.Search and putting in the name of the organization. The amount of money they receive to find so few 'victims' is staggering (if the government with all ITS resources cannot find them, how will a non profit organization find them and then rehabilitate them?). It would seem there are plenty of pigeons out there willing to fork over lots of money to help these organizations 'raise awareness' about the 'growing crisis' of sex trafficking in general and child sex trafficking in particular, even if the 'crisis' is dubious at best. Sex worker rights organizations run by current or former sex workers, on the other hand, are lucky if they can scrape together a few thousand dollars a year from sympathetic donors, because we are on the 'wrong' side of the issue. There is a great deal of money to be made 'rescuing' people who do not want to be rescued and who do not think of themselves as victims, but you need to exaggerate the estimated number of 'victims' as well as the ages of alleged victims or people just won't contribute to your cause. And what happens when those sex trafficking 'victims' who won't cooperate with the rescuers/ cops and admit to being a victim?

Denver vice Lieutenant Aaron Sanchez explains the 'problem': “Prostitutes are not friendly. It’s not like you’re talking to a child-abuse victim or a fifteen-year-old sex assault victim who wants to cry out and wants to explain what happened or is just scared. These girls just flat out say, ‘Nope, that’s not what’s happening.’ red_arrow“We have to help them realize they are victims,” Denver vice Lieutenant Aaron Sanchez says. (His department received a $300,000 grant to find and convince those victims of their victimhood... Sanchez suspects the currently small number of cases will increase. Estimating the scope of the problem of human trafficking has long been an issue. "I can guarantee you the numbers will increase," Sanchez says. "I just don't know by how much." See the stats for all prostitution arrests in Colorado- which have gone down by HALF since this article was published in 2011, so either there aren't all those victims or these guys will plead for more money to find them...)

You might ask- what do sex worker rights activists get out of their involvement in fighting for sex worker rights? Most sex worker rights activists are volunteers and receive NO compensation for the many hours they work tracking down the many, many fraudulent articles and media 'reports' on so called 'sex trafficking,' challenging the complete fabrications about sex work/prostitution perpetuated by the media and the prostitution abolitionist 'victim pimps,' because it is about our right to exist, to not get arrested or punished for engaging in consensual adult commercial sex, and to have access to the justice system when we ARE victims of a crime, including when we are victims of predators with a badge- cops who use the prohibition of our profession to extort us for sex, money and information.

Yet the prostitution abolitionists claim that sex worker rights activists are "shills for the pimp lobby," or that we are actually 'johns or pimps' using female identities to promote decriminalization of prostitution without any evidence or proof (Melissa Farley is one of those guilty of making such bizarre claims- because she knows that we know she is a complete fraud, as Canadian Judge who ruled on the original case brought by the sex workers to make their working environment safer). It is all about persuading the public that they are working in the best interests of 'prostituted women and children' even as they fail to acknowledge that the majority of sex workers are neither trafficked victims or underage. But then, if they told the truth, they wouldn't raise millions of dollars, would they...? And what of those academics and journalists whose careers depend on the publication of their prevarications- why, they might actually have to find some other group of 'victims' who needed rescuing. (Sex worker organization ISWFACE is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization - and you can find out how much it receives and where the money goes by looking it up as indicated above. No salaries have ever been paid to any of the board members or the officers of the organization.)]

COMPARISONS: 1991 - 2012 [22 YEARS] Misc. Statistics: Comparisons of Rapes/ Sexual Assaults/ Arrests for Rapes/ Sexual Assaults / Arrests for Prostitution Arrests for Drug Use/ Comparison of Rates of Homicides by Circumstances/ click here to view document as pdf

comparisonsThere are so many unsolved crimes like violent rape and sexual assault, with a paltry overall arrest percentage rate average of 10.9%, so it seems natural that we would include those statistics for comparison to the number of arrests for prostitution and disorderly conduct- 'crimes' for which the reporting parties (the 'complainant') are the cops who make the arrests, not the 'victims' (who are arrested, prosecuted and punished). Undoubtedly, one argument for the significantly lower rate of arrests for rapes and sexual assaults is because these cases are more difficult and more expensive to solve, despite the fact that DNA evidence and a physical description is usually obtained from the reporting victim. We know that there are hundreds of thousands of untested rape kits deteriorating in evidence lockers nationwide, according to a number of reports, and if those kits were tested in a timely manner, it could save the lives of the very prostitutes who are most at risk.

Detroit (MI) Prosecutor Kim Worthy recently held a press conference regarding the difficulty she has had getting to the 11,303 rape kits which were found after the Detroit crime lab closed, and what has resulted from NOT testing them. "We have usually a woman who was raped, they went to a police department to report their rape and they willingly went to a rape kit exam- so three to four hour extensive exam, literally every orifice of your body is looked at and scoped and examined- and hoping we can get some DNA and hopefully that produces a trial," Worthy said. She said 600 of the kits have been tested. The most recent "wave" of 200 resulted in the detection of 21 serial rapists among 153 test results. One of the test kits contained DNA belonging to Shelly A. Brooks, a serial rapist and killer arrested in 2006. This man killed and raped five more women after the date on his first victim's rape kit. Those women he murdered were prostitutes. We must seriously question why the cops are not pursuing rapists rather than squandering scarce resources arresting adult prostitutes for engaging in prostitution, regardless of how the prostitution abolitionists view all prostitutes [as victims]. These numbers speak for themselves: law enforcement agencies prioritize arresting [victims] prostitutes over [criminals] rapists.

COMPARISON OF RATES OF MURDER BY CIRCUMSTANCES:

We've included this information because the media, prostitution abolitionists and law enforcement agents like to claim that prostitution is very dangerous. And while street workers are no doubt at much higher risk than those who work privately (because they work in a public space, just as street cops, taxi drivers and others whose work is very risky BECAUSE they deal with complete strangers but THEY are NOT arrested and put into jail to protect them from their dangerous work), from home or at hotels or brothels- it is interesting to note that the rate of law enforcement homicides is about 5 times greater than for prostitution, at least the reported homicides of sex workers... there may be more which were not counted by the cops, but we can only show what the numbers made available to the public from the FBI. There are more children killed by their babysitters than murdered prostitutes. People murdered during a rape are more numerous than murdered prostitutes. And at an even greater risk of death are those who are involved in romantic triangles- the homicide numbers surpass the rate of cops, prostitutes and children killed by babysitters combined. Except for the deaths of cops, the statistics are from the Murder by Circumstances tables which you can find on our links here: http://www.policeprostitutionandpolitics.com/database_spreadsheets.html Law Enforcement deaths are reported through Law Enforcement Officers Feloniously Killed and can be found individually by the year for each document that is available from the FBI, starting with 2001.

COLLEGE STUDENTS AND RAPE:

College Students Raped 2006Among all these statistics, the number of rapes of women attending college are NOT included, but from the FBI's 2012 Statistical Overview of Crime in statistical_overviewthe United States comes this shocking statistic: in 2006, according to the Statistical Overview (2012), there were 673,000 college women raped- which is more than the total violent rapes and sexual assaults from that year as reported through the police to the FBI.

We do not have any statistics on how many of the rapes resulted in an arrest of the rapist, nor do we know what criteria was used to determine that a rape occurred. Were these rapes which were reported or is this number a guesstimate? It seems unlikely that there would have been this many reported rapes on college campuses without becoming a media issue. If these were reported violent rapes on campus, this number of rapes would indicate that perhaps we ought to consider banning higher education for women, or at the very least, segregating students... given that this is the 'solution' we are told will work to stop the abuse of prostitutes... Shouldn't we spend at least as much money "creating awareness" for the victims of campus rape as we do for the extremely small number of sex trafficking victims that are found every year? Of course, there just isn't that much money in 'creating awareness' for other, real crimes, real rapes, REAL VICTIMS, as there is in the 'sex trafficking' crusade, so it would probably be a waste of time trying to help THOSE victims.

2012 Criminal Victimization- Real Victims VS Polaris Project 'potential victims referenced'

Polaris Project 2012 missing callsIn order to understand the significance of the disparity in the statistics from the FBI and the "National Human Trafficking Resource Center" aka "The Polaris Project" it is necessary to look at what is considered more important by the government.... and it isn't the health and well being of EITHER 'sex slaves' OR the victims of rape and sexual assault who have asked for but do not receive help FROM their government. The government puts its resources behind the issues it deems more important. Which is why, in 2012, the police arrested a mere 15,591 alleged rapists out of the 346,830 rapes and sexual assaults (or 4.5% rate of arrest) noted in Table 1 of the Criminal Victimization 2012 document.

In the same time period, police arrested 48,148 people for prostitution, of which 657 were under 18. Minors account for 1.365% of arrests for prostitution- and yes, whenever the FBI and local cops stage one of their 'Operation Cross Country" raids and 'rescue' children, those children ARE ARRESTED and taken into custody. Yet the Polaris Project (which should be renamed the PoLIARS Project) insists that "With 100,000 children estimated to be in the sex trade in the United States each year, it is clear that the total number of human trafficking victims in the U.S. reaches into the hundreds of thousands when estimates of both adults and minors and sex trafficking and labor trafficking are aggregated." Why do they make such a claim when the people who wrote the report on which all the prostitution abolitionists base their fraudulent claim of the number of juveniles in prostitution say that it just isn't true: (not to mention that there are not hundreds of thousands of adults who are victims of sex trafficking either)

TIP report 2012 says there were 46,570 CONFIRMED victims WORLDWIDE... including 'sex trafficking' victims... So where are the rest of the 'victims' that the Polaris Project claims are out here?

Sex Trafficking of Minors: How Many Juveniles Are Being Prostituted in the US? (revised in 2012) Michelle Stransky and David Finkelhor

[click on image to view pdf] from the Crimes Against Children Research red_arrowCenter

"There have been many attempts to estimate the number of juveniles who are being prostituted (or trafficked) within the United States. These estimates range from 1,400 to 2.4 million, although most fall between 300,000 and 600,000. BUT PLEASE DO NOT CITE THESE NUMBERS. READ ON. A close look at these diverse estimates reveals that none are based on a strong scientific foundation. They are mostly educated guesses or extrapolations based on questionable as‐ sumptions. They do not have the substance of typically reported crime statistics, like the number of robberies or the number of child sexual abuse victims. The reality is that we do not currently know how many juveniles are being prostituted. Scientifically credible estimates do not exist. The most often cited estimates on the prostitution of juveniles (also known as domestic minor sex trafficking) will be described here and their source, along with the major problems with their validity."

And it gets worse:

"Despite the fact that the General Accounting Office estimates are obsolete, current groups concerned with child welfare still use this estimate....

As this critique of estimates suggest, there is currently no reliable estimate of juveniles who are prostituted in the US. Some current estimates are based upon “gut hunches” and “guesstimates” from almost thirty years ago. Others offer definitions of sexual exchanges that may not actually constitute prostitution. Also, the methods used to create these estimates are often difficult to find, making them methodologically suspect. Organizations may recognize these problems but continue to cite such poorly calculated estimates. [um... like the POLARIS PROJECT????]

People concerned about the problem very much want there to be a number that they can cite. Because other people have cited numbers, there has come to be a “collective intuition” about the rough magnitude based on these earlier claims. But in reality red_arrowthere is little scientific substance behind any of them. This is not an uncommon phenomenon in social problem analysis and has been called the “Woozle Effect” (Gelles 1980). The “Woozle Effect” occurs when one writer reports an estimate based on a typically weak methodology or “guesstimate” that is subsequently cited by other writers, but without the first writer’s caveats (Gelles 1980). Estimates of prostituted juveniles seem to have taken this path: the “gut hunches” of one author and the compiling of such hunches by the General Accounting Office have seemed to provide a basis for contemporary estimates of juveniles who are prostituted, despite the fact that the General Accounting Office states that the estimates in the literature are “general perceptions” (General Accounting Office, 1982).


What are journalists and scholars to do?

It is our suggestion that in the absence of any estimates with any good scientific basis, that scholars, writers and advocates stop using the unsubstantiated estimates and simply indicate that the true incidence is currently unknown. It is very frustrating to write about a topic and not have an estimate of its magnitude, but we believe that continued citation of unsupported estimates gives them [the unsupported estimates] credibility. Even writing that “No one knows how many juveniles are being prostituted, but estimates have been made from 1,400 to 2.4 million,” contributes to the problem. It gives people the impression that these are knowledgeable estimates about the current situation and that the real number lies somewhere in the middle of that range, which it may not.

[WE SAY- IF THEY WERE HONEST THIS IS WHAT THEY WOULD DO:] For brief treatments of the problem, one can say simply: “Unfortunately, there are no credible or supported estimates about the size of the problem.” For more extended treatments of the problem, one can cite some of the statistics, but then indicate that these numbers are based mostly on guesses or extremely imprecise and speculative methodologies. It would be a good idea when citing any numbers to be sure to include the low end estimate from law red_arrowenforcement of 1,400, since this is among the most recent and clearly defined of the estimates, and counters the assumption that all the estimates are large."

colorado-liesAs noted above in the statistics for male and females for prostitution, in 2012, there were a grand total of 657 persons under 18 who were arrested for prostitution. How on earth do "657" minors become "100,000" or "300,000"? And in 2012, Colorado Tribune 'journalist' Lisa Collacott dutifully reported another whopper that "according to the "Stop Child Trafficking Now" 2.8 million children run away in the US each year. It is estimated that within 48 hours of hitting the streets one third of those are then lured or recruited by sex traffickers..." [this would be about 924,000 minors recruited into prostitution each year- apparently the estimated 100,000 to 300,000 phantom children at risk are not enough for this organization- and we note that there is not a single credible source which would back up this statistic for child runaways... it is a flat out LIE....]

Why do they make these claims? All you need to do is look at their 990 tax returns (click this link to look up all the non profit organizations follow_the_moneywhose income relies on LIES) and see how their donations from private and public organizations increase every year that they tell those lies. Being a 'victim pimp' pays far better than being a sex worker rights activist, that's for sure! You can read more about this and the numbers that don't add up by going to the "2012 Polaris Project Crisis Calls" (click here to see the charts and tables which show that somebody has a serious math problem and can't add up their own paltry numbers).

Why did we compile over 30 years' worth of data and statistics from the FBI Bureau of Justice Statistics? Because politicians and reporters with a prostitution abolitionist agenda are willing to lie, prevaricate and fabricate numbers to justify their hideous crusade against consenting adult commercial sex... politicians such as Texas' Republican Congressman Ted Poe make outrageous, demonstrably false statements about the number of sex trafficking cases prosecuted in the US each year- as he and his Republican crony Senator John Cornyn pass more laws to help the poor helpless sex trafficking victims... of which there are so very few... here's what they claim: "Poe, a Republican from Humble, said sex trafficking rings prey on the large number of immigrant women and girls living in the Houston area and across Texas, accounting for a disproportionate share of the estimated 300,000 sex trafficking cases prosecuted each year." Only problem is that there have not been 300,000 sex trafficking cases in the US OR around the world- EVER... but hey, what's a few lies when your heart is in the right place, right? Perhaps these guys suffer from the Spitzer/ Vitter Syndrome- where their guilt over their own involvement with sex workers leads them to pontificate on the horrors of sex trafficking?

MULTI YEAR DOCUMENTS II- CRIMINAL VICTIMIZATION REPORTS-

The annual Criminal Victimization reports are where you will find summaries of rapes and sexual assaults, as well as domestic violence and other violent crimes. These reports are usually available in October of the year following the close of the previous year. Interestingly, these reports do not contain any information relating to prostitution or sex trafficking- or human trafficking of any sort, despite being summaries of 'violent' crimes. The Criminal Victimization Reports by year can be found below

Click on either link to view the FBI Bureau of Justice Statistics "Criminal Victimization, 2012" Document (excerpt shown below is from page #2 of this document :

covertable 1

We note that there was a significant increase in rapes and sexual assaults from 2011 to 2012: in 2011, there were 244,190 rapes and sexual assaults and in 2012 there were 346,830 rapes and sexual assaults...according to the Criminal Victimization 2012 report:
polaris project 2012

This is an increase of 102,640 victims. Meanwhile, the Polaris Project showed an increase of 478 calls related to 'potential victims referenced" but we do not have any evidence that the phone calls for 'potential victims referenced' were even calls of actual victims... but let's say for the sake of argument, they were... we are looking at 346,830 real victims of REAL CRIMES - and an increase from the previous year of 102,640 REAL victims, versus 1,251 'PHONE CALLS from POTENTIAL VICTIMS' and an increase of 478 from the previous year when they showed 773 'phone calls' for 'potential victims referenced.'

Despite the fact that government statistics are available, reporters do not do their homework and merely report the same old lies from these victim pimp organizations. When their readers are confronted with the facts in the comment section, many of them get upset that someone dares to challenge the false information- but none of them attempt to refute the facts and instead resort to name calling and defending the fact- deficient articles as being 'important' to shine a light on the 'problem of sex trafficking.' Yes, it is important to show that there are problems in society which need addressing- but that cannot be done by using lies and distorting the facts to fit one's ideological agenda.

Based on the 2012 actual cases of police officers having sex with minors (over 200),what if I suggested that there were 30,000- 91,000 cases of cops raping children? Using the same ratio of known arrests/ rescues of minors to the claimed guesstimates of children sex trafficked every year, it would look like this: in 2012, there were 657 minors arrested for prostitution and if we use the '100,000 to 300,000 number that is often cited, this would be the percentage of actual arrests to the estimate:

Arrested Minors 2012
Guesstimated number of victims each year Percentage of actual arrests to guesstimates
657 100,000 0.657%
657 300,000 0.219%
Arrested Cops 2012 (rounded off to 200) Possible number of cops who rape children each year Percentage of actual arrests to guesstimates
200 30,000 0.667%
200 91,000 0.219%

There were over 200 law enforcement agents in 2012 arrested for having sex with minors (or possessing child porn or both) and using the 'logic' of the victim pimps, so I could extrapolate from the 200 known cases and claim that there were either 30,000 to 91,000 other law enforcement officers having sex with minors who WERE NOT CAUGHT. Do you believe that if I made such a claim that no one would ask for proof , since I only had evidence of 200+ who were caught? For all I know, there are 30,000 to 91,000 cops every year who are raping children- but I'd have to have a lot more than a 'gut hunch' if I wanted people to believe those statistics. Why are the prostitution abolitionists able to cite their 'guesstimates' based on nothing at all?
