Across the country, States Attorneys General are demanding that online classified website like backpage.com and others shut down their adult services ads- supposedly to protect underage persons from being sexually trafficked. According to the letter being sent to backpage.com from these states attorneys general, "More than 50 cases of trafficking or attempted trafficking of minors on Backpage.com have been filed in 22 states in the past three years." (NOTE: the cases listed below of pedophile cops, district attorneys and judges is just from 2011... over 100 cases). Further, the letter notes, "These are only the stories that made it into the news; many more instances likely exist..." to which we say, the same is true of the number of cases of cops and other law enforcement agents who have sexually exploited children. A child is not likely to want to report their sexual exploitation at the hands of a trusted member of law enforcement to... another member of law enforcement...
Unfortunately for underage persons who are victims of sexual abuse at the hands of an adult, the majority of abusers do not find their victims through these classified ads. The abusers are often persons in positions of authority, such as cops, judges, district attorneys, and even FBI agents. Clergy, teachers, boy scout leaders and others are also among those whom a child trusts and looks up to for protection but find in them an abuser. According to the government's own statistics, 90% of underage persons who are sexually abused are victims of someone they know, and 68% of these underage sexual abuse cases are at the hands of a family member. (See the US Department of Justice Report : Sexual Assault of YoungChildren as Reported to Law Enforcement: Victim, Incident, and Offender Characteristics )
Sexual abuse of teenage girls by police officers is so prevalent that there is an article by that name which can be found here:
POLICE SEXUAL ABUSE OF TEENAGE GIRLS
And the prevalence of rape in juvenile facilities is also high, as indicated by this report from the US Department of Justice (published January 2010):
Sexual Victimization in Juvenile Facilities Reported by Youth, 2008-09
Here is a prime example," Ex-Officer Sentenced For Misconduct With Juvenile Inmate
WRTV News 6 April 15, 2008
Former Indianapolis Juvenile Correctional Facility officer Octavious Tyler has been sentenced to six months in a community corrections program after pleading guilty to two felony counts of sexual misconduct with a minor for engaging in sexual activity with a female at the facility.
And in late 2011, "former Alameda County sheriff's deputy was sentenced Friday to three years in prison for molesting one of his daughters throughout her childhood.
John Eric Freeman, 53, of Concord, pleaded guilty earlier this year to three counts of child molestation in exchange for the three year sentence handed down in Contra Costa County Superior Court this afternoon after hearing emotional statements from his four daughters and ex-wife." Three years for a lifetime of scars his daughter will endure. Yet politicians and the media are screaming for laws which will send men who have sex with 17 year olds to prison for 15 years!

Why do these abolitionists not know that when a law enforcement officer has sex with a juvenile, they are given a mere slap on the hand? But they want to send other adults to prison for decades if there is money involved....
With so many unfortunate cases of the sexual exploitation of juveniles who have been arrested, we have to wonder what is going through the minds of supposedly well meaning people like Evann Gastaldo when they write articles like this one "Why We Must Arrest Child Prostitutes: IT MAY SOUND CRUEL, BUT IT COULD BE THE ONLY THING THAT SAVES THEM" ?
Are the not aware of the US Government's own reports on these things? Do they not care that they are subjecting these 'victim' juveniles to rape at the hands of those who are supposed to protect them? Are they so callous that they think being raped by a jail guard or other inmate is preferable for the underage person than being 'sexually exploited' for money? Surely if the guards are willing to risk their jobs and even possible incarceration for their crimes when they rape NON prostitute juveniles who are in their custody, those juveniles who are charged with prostitution- no matter that they are considered 'victims' by those arresting them- are an even greater target, as are the adult prostitutes who are arrested and raped by law enforcement agents and corrections officers. Indeed, according to a May 5, 2011 article in the Economist, "Sexual abuse in prison is distressingly common: the Justice Department estimated that more than 217,000 prisoners, including at least 17,000 juveniles, were raped or sexually abused in America in 2008."
For the information below, if the outcome or punishment is listed as "unknown" it is because when we first did the research, this information was not yet available. Some of the arrests of law enforcement officers are too recent and do not have an outcome yet as they have not gone to trial. If you know the outcome of any case listed here, please feel free to send us an email and we will post the updated information when we can. You can contact us at: normaja [at] webuniverse.net.
We are attempting to add all the names of officers, judges, district attorneys and other abusers in positions of authority or trust to the website. It is an enormous job because there are just SO MANY out there- so we shall start with a partial list of cops/ judges and other law enforcement agents from 2010 and 2011. Please be patient as we add others and expand the lists to include the members of the clergy, teachers etc.
PLEASE NOTE; IF YOU ARE A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER WHOSE NAME IS ON THIS LIST BUT YOU WERE VINDICATED OF THE CHARGES, WE WILL BE HAPPY TO REMOVE YOUR NAME IF YOU SEND US VERIFIABLE INFORMATION TO PROVE YOUR INNOCENCE. WE ARE ALL TOO FAMILIAR WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT SUPERIORS USING FALSE CHARGES TO DISCREDIT WHISTLEBLOWERS AND THOSE WHO DO NOT CONFORM TO THE POLITICALLY CORRECT WAY OF DOING THINGS.
