All a parent has to do is read this article and suddenly the thought of having millions of kids online this fall without supervision, bored and with time on their hands, becomes a reality. And we realize our world is about to change. “34 Central Valley Men arrested for trying to meet children for sex, Fresno Co Sheriff Says”……. August 7, 2020 This week the Fresno County Sheriff conducted multiple undercover stings where they used a variety of apps and posed as children ages 12 and 13 years old. In a less than one week 34 men had conversations with the “minors” and arranged a meet up for sex where they were met by law enforcement and arrested. If you think online pedophilia is not rampant during this Covid crisis knowing that our kids will have lots of time on their hands and are playing online, you are not informed.

EXPLOITED: Crimes Against Humanity
Thursday at 7 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Variety Channel
This program is designed to educate first responders, civic leaders, social workers, education professionals, faith based leaders and parents about how predators access, groom, recruit and exploit victims into prostitution and sextortion. We analyze real cases from the perspective of Law Enforcement, the victim, and the perpetrator. We look at hard core trafficking cases and how law enforcement is able to intervene. We examine cases of child pornography and the Dark Web. We examine how predators use apps, chatrooms, games and the latest technologies. We discuss the impact of gangs and cartels on human exploitation. We also look at trends in global human trafficking. Our goal is to build a global interactive community of individuals empowered to eradicate human exploitation. EXPLOITED: Crimes Against Humanity is broadcast live every Thursday at 7 AM Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.
