The Challenge to Obtain Justice and Protection for Victims in a Global World of Encrypted Social Media and Disappearing Evidence (Part 2)

Poof – The Evidence is Gone!

This week we are rebroadcasting one of our most popular shows to date!
(Original Air Date August 3, 2017 | Season 5 – Episode 10)

The last six months has brought a plethora of new technologies that are changing our lives at the speed of light. We are now seeing disappearing video, encrypted messaging, encrypted chat rooms, live-streaming within a video game chat room, anonymous and untraceable cyber currency and, yes even Backpage is now taking untraceable gift cards purchased with cash.

WhatsApp has led the industry in encrypted messaging. They have a monthly user base of 1.3 BILLION users sharing 55 BILLION messages, 4.5 BILLION photos and one BILLION videos PER DAY. 

This week Opal Singleton, President and CEO of Million Kids, will explore the impact on crime and crime solving when there is no chain of evidence. We will look at the search warrant process, the Rule of 41, and how law enforcement can investigate illicit sexual activity in an encrypted world. Join us Thursday, August 16, 2018 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com.

The Challenge to Obtain Justice and Protection for Victims in a Global World of Encrypted Social Media and Disappearing Evidence (Part 1)

This week we are rebroadcasting one of our most popular shows to date!
(Original Air Date July 27, 2017 | Season 5 – Episode 9)

Our world is changing at the speed of light. As Americans we are protected by the First Amendment and expect a right to privacy where law enforcement has to obtain legal permission to enter our world and gather evidence. Our nation’s primary responsibility is to protect its’ citizens from harm. However, once an American citizen posts information on the world wide web, the discussion becomes quite fascinating. Once that citizen engages on the Dark Web, uses encrypted messaging or views child pornography, live-streamed sexually abusive encounters, or disappearing video, the discussion becomes volatile.

This week Opal Singleton, President and CEO of Million Kids, looks at the race for technology in providing global anonymity and how terrorists, pedophiles and predators use emerging technology to confound legal evidence gathering. Join us Thursday, August 9, 2018 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com.

When MOM is a MONSTER

monster-moms

This show is one of the most difficult shows we have ever done. It is not for the novice or faint of heart. This week we take a hard look at cases where mothers sell their kids (or may have allegedly exploited their children). AND, we look at cases where men did not purchase the child, but, instead, reported it to law enforcement.

We also examine many cases of sex trafficking and sexual abuse by mothers. Some did it because they were addicted to drugs. Some were hard core sex traffickers working with male partners. Some used social media apps like KIK, Meetme and Snap Money. Others were trying to please a boyfriend.

It is important to understand the dynamics of these cases so they can be recognized and reported if they are happening around you. It is also important to recognize that incest is prolific in our society and it is a LIFE SENTENCE for a child. The bond between a mother and child is unlike any on earth. A child carries its mother’s DNA and spends nine months in her womb where their entire existence is dependent on protection of the mother. As years pass and that trust is violated, it will forever alter the life of the victim, whether male or female. Sexual exploitation by a mother is one of the greatest travesties on earth.

Join us Thursday, August 2, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, takes on the difficult task of analyzing cases where moms exploit their own children.

Crypto Currencies, The Dark Net and Sex Trafficking

United-States-Legislation-Targets-Crypto-Sex-Trafficking-696x449

This week The U.S. House of Representatives passed HR 6069, known as the “Fight Illicit Networks and Detect Trafficking” Act (FIND Trafficking Act). Today we will discuss the impact of this act on money laundering connected to sex, gun and drug trafficking.

As technologies advance, we are seeing the convergence of multiple technologies that empower cartels and organized crime by providing them a network to launder money generated by the exploitation of people around the globe. As sex ads move off shore, exploiters use cryptocurrency to continue to advertise sexual services in the U.S. by claiming commercial sex is legal in the country where the ad service resides. Will this bill make that activity illegal? Additionally, there are challenges for law enforcement to obtain search warrants in the dark net where there is a virtual marketplace of sex trafficking, child pornography, gun and drug sales. And, what about all those live streaming sites that will be using virtual currency to charge for live streaming of pornography?

Join us Thursday, July 19, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, discusses the correlation between CryptoCurrencies, The Dark Net and Sex Trafficking.

How Technology and Social Media Impacts Gang Activity with Anthony Ortiz Jr. and California Youth Outreach (PART 3)

anthony_ortiz_jr
Anthony Ortiz Jr., California Youth Outreach

Anthony Ortiz Jr. was raised in the gang culture. His father, a former gang member, left the gang lifestyle to become a pastor and eventually became a nationally recognized expert in the field of gang intervention and prevention services. Due to his leadership and expertise in working with hardcore, gang-involved youth, he helped to develop and implement the San Jose Mayor’s Gang Prevention Task Force. In 1992, Pastor Ortiz received national recognition for developing programs that successfully turn gang-prone youth away from gangs. Together they run California Youth Outreach, an organization dedicated to reaching out to all gang-impacted youth, their families, and their communities through education services, intervention programs and resource opportunities that support a positive and healthy lifestyle.

This week, host Opal Singleton, and Anthony Ortiz Jr. will talk about how gangs are reorganizing territories based on social media and sex trafficking. How gangs recruit young people and how to help kids stay out of or get out of a gang.

Join us Thursday, July 5, 2018 at 7a.m. PST on VOICE AMERICA – Variety Channel as host, Opal Singleton, and gang expert, Anthony Ortiz Jr., talk about how technology and social media impact gang activity and how to help kids from getting involved in gangs.
