Seven Police Officers Charged with Running Eight NY Brothels & then 40 Year old Cop Rapes 15 yr Old Girl

      Comments Off on Seven Police Officers Charged with Running Eight NY Brothels & then 40 Year old Cop Rapes 15 yr Old Girl

 Let’s take a closer look at how the media covered this story.

 

7 NY police officers have been arrested for running 8 NY brothels. They used women from Central America  and yet the media doesn’t mention the word trafficking. This shows how much prosecutors and the police control the narrative in the media, because usually when a few sex workers who work together get arrested for prostitution the police and the media report that it is a sex trafficking ring.

By the 3rd day of the media reporting on the story, the narrative started to change.

The prosecutor recounted an incident in which honest cops had arrested a prostitute at the organization’s brothel in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Samaniego had learned the Human Trafficking Bureau at the Brooklyn district attorney’s office was looking into the case.

“Upon discovering that Human Trafficking was interested in a simple prostitution arrest, he immediately leaped into action, reporting to the organization exactly what he was told to the point… that the intelligence from the Kings County District Attorney’s Office investigation [that] was provided to him was then provided immediately to the organization.”

The organization had then communicated with the prostitute who had been arrested, providing her with a script to recite while still in custody to the Human Trafficking Bureau so as to misdirect its investigation, the prosecutor said. This conduct was egregious,” the Queens prosecutor said in summing up Samaniego’s action. “It is far beyond any of the other officers that are charged here today.”

Yet from coast to coast human trafficking organizations, who are part of local trafficking task forces have always been allowed to groom sex workers and pressure them to report that they were forced and raped by tons of men. Now the cops don’t like the same narrative that they have been promoting since 2000.

GROUP THAT OPPOSES SEX WORK GAVE MONEY TO PROSECUTORS’ OFFICES — AND GOT STINGS AGAINST JOHNS IN RETURN 

Vice stings targeting so-called “massage parlors” exploded in recent years, primarily in Chinese immigrant neighborhoods in Queens and Brooklyn. According to a 2017 report from the Urban Institute and the Legal Aid Society, arrests of Asian-identified people in New York City charged with both unlicensed massage and prostitution increased by 2,700 percent between 2012 and 2016.

Over 18,000 women have been dragged through NYC prostitution diversion court over the past few years. 91% of them are Asain women. The court mandates them to participate in some fake services which include the free yoga classes, some shamed based counseling, and immigration services.  However, the program does not provide them with any of the vital services that they need such as affordable housing, jobs that pay a living wage or access to money.

Update January 2018

“Rape allegations for having sex with the minor, identified in court only as SG, will be adjudicated in Bronx criminal court at a later date.
 
Yet the NYPD Advocates office, which prosecutes police misconduct, is pushing to get Olmeda fired. The department trial will determine if he should get kicked off the force. “
 
So I guess you can have a rape charge in criminal court and still work for NYPD
