The Power of Fantasy in Grooming

Victims of sex trafficking are most often lured, groomed and controlled by pimps and predators. Pimping is not about sex. It is all about creating a facade. A dream. A Fantasy. Stimulating the want in the mind of a vulnerable person for something they don’t currently have. We sometimes call that grooming.

Sometimes the smartest people are lured in. Sex and fantasy can be amazing or it can be a prison. How do you break the fantasy of a 15-year-old girl being groomed by a predator? She wants to believe with all her heart it is real, but you see the warning signs. 

This week we are going to talk about the role of grooming and psychology in sex trafficking, sextortion, adult and child pornography. 

Fantasy relationships – mood altering, adrenaline addiction, the personal obsession you create, the impact of a teen becoming obsessed with a predator. We will examine how a parent should intervene if they see their child being groomed.

Fantasy relationships and the psychological damage to teens who have been groomed and virtually exploited even though they may not have been physically violated.

  • The Psychololgy of pimping – romeo and gorilla
  • The Psychology a pimp uses to put the victim in a shame-based box
  • The psychological impact on victims of sextortion that teens experience through chat rooms   
  • The “you deserve better” psychology is often used by foreign recruiters that lure victims into both sex and labor trafficking in the U.S.

This is a show every parent and grandparent should hear!

Join us this week as we explore the power of fantasy in grooming. Listen Thursday, September 7, 2017 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com

Runaway Teenagers – Vulnerable Targets for Predators

Nearly every other day it seems Million Kids posts cases on the Facebook page about how runaway teenagers are targeted for sex trafficking or sextortion. It is truly heart-breaking.

This week we will have as our special guest, Lindsey Kahney, Prevention Specialist for the National Runaway Safeline. Together we will discuss the statistics revealing how often this is happening around the country. We will talk about why kids choose to runaway; some of the driving forces of conflict between teens and their families; and the impact of social media on the issue. Lindsey will share with us solutions for families who have had a child who chose to runaway from home and preventative ideas for families who have a child who may be at risk.

Join us this week as we explore the issue of teen runaway. Listen live Thursday, August 31, 2017 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com

Sextortion: Is Your Child at Risk When They Have 75,000 Followers?

This week we will look at the top apps and trends of the social media industry. We will also explore what predators and pedophiles look for in potential victims and how they use apps to groom victims. Most importantly, we will look at what a family can do to develop a strategy for social media to keep kids safe while online.

GENERAL FACTS ABOUT SEXTORTION:

• The average age of victims is 14.
• Predators have a hiearchy for identifying potential victims:
AVAILABILITY – VULNERABILITY – ATTRACTIVENESS – RISK
• Predators will move on if the victim resists
• Most teen victims will defer to predators to avoid rejection of parents
• 2017 – More than 75% of children under eight have access to a smart phone

Be sure to join us as we look at some apps that are fast becoming a playground for predators. Listen live Thursday, August 17, 2017 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 2)

Poof – The Evidence is Gone!

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 3, 2017 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)

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, July 27, 2017 at 7:00am PST on Voice America Variety Channel or access the archived show on ExploitedCrimes.com.
