SOLD FOR SEX: SURVIVOR STORIES

SOLD FOR SEX: SURVIVOR STORIES


NARRATOR: This program
contains graphic descriptions
of sex and violence.
Viewer discretion is advised.
“LAURA”: You’re officially in
ownership of someone else.
You’re a product, you’re cattle.
SAKURA: I’ve literally had to,
essentially, turn tricks
to get my money back.
RACHEL: Drugs and alcohol
became part of the picture
at a very young age, seven,
eight, nine years old.
“LAURA”:
That whole time was a blur.
Being drugged, beat,
raped repeatedly.
SAKURA: This is horrible,
I hate this.
This is not me, but I’m stuck
I don’t know where to go.
I don’t know how to get out.
RACHEL: I don’t know that I
necessarily processed anything
beyond surviving.
“LAURA”: If anybody could take
anything away from my story is
it could happen to anybody.
(solemn music)
MIKE TOBIAS:
Sakura, Laura, and Rachel
are sex trafficking survivors.
Three of likely hundreds, if
not thousands of Nebraskans,
mostly women, who are
sold for sex each year.
It’s different
than prostitution,
because trafficking
isn’t voluntary.
Here are their stories.
SAKURA YODOGAWA-CAMPBELL:
Currently, I am a
crime victim advocate,
here at the Sarpy County
attorney’s office.
(door opening)
We keep them informed
of what their rights are
as a victim or witness.
But also where the case is
going, what the movement is.
TOBIAS: Sakura
knows what it’s like
to be a crime victim.
She says her first rape
came as a sixth grader
behind a bowling alley.
Many more followed in
high school and college.
Bad relationships and
alcoholism were the norm.
Then a job transfer
took her to Kansas
where she met a guy she
thought was perfect.
SAKURA: We go on our first date
and we go to a little concert
in Lawrence, then we’d go
back, we’d sit in a park,
and we’re swinging and
having a good time.
And then we go for a
walk in the neighborhood.
I mean, to me, that’s
like the perfect date.
And the next day, he’s at my
house, and he’s moving in.
It was so weird, because
again, I’m two and a half hours
away from anybody I know,
so this is all new to me.
From there, he controlled
everything I did.
Made sure that he knew
where I was at all times.
I could not move in that
town without him knowing
exactly where I was.
We started frequenting
the strip clubs,
there were two of them
in Topeka at the time.
We went to the one
quite frequently,
and we’d spend like
entire paychecks there.
And buying lap dances
from the dancers, and he
had talked them into doing
some extra things while
they were dancing.
Going to those, I don’t
know what they’re called,
like sex shops.
And I can remember going in
the back of one, in particular,
and they had these
booths in a row
where you could rent videos
and watch them there,
and do what you do.
But they had big windows, so
people could see in there,
and I can remember we
had to have sex in there
and allow other people to watch.
And again, while this is
all going on, I’m thinking,
“This is horrible, I hate this.
“This is not me, but I’m stuck,
I don’t know where to go.
“I don’t know how to get out.”
So you have to go with it,
because standing up
to it, saying no,
that just gets you beat.
TOBIAS: This probably
isn’t what you think of
when you think sex trafficking.
Sakura realized later
that’s what it was, a crime
defined by force,
fraud, or coercion.
SAKURA: I would put my check in,
he would take the money out,
and then the only way I
could get my money back
to pay for rent was we’d
go to these sex shops,
these strip clubs.
We did the swingers thing,
we called those 800 numbers
or whatever those numbers
are for phone sex.
We were doing all of these
things, and I didn’t have
a choice in this.
It’s like you do
it or you get beat.
So you’ve got your force,
you’ve got your fraud,
you’ve got your coercion.
And then, of course,
the interstate,
because it was between Topeka
and Independence, Missouri
on Interstate 70.
Again, at that time, I’m not
thinking this is trafficking,
and this is really horrible.
I’m just thinking well
this really kind of stinks,
and but I’ll get through it.
But yeah, I literally had
to, essentially, turn tricks
to get my money back.
The thought of leaving
my job, something I felt
I had worked so hard to
prove to myself and to others
that I can do this.
And everything that I
had, I had worked for,
and it’s so difficult
to walk away from that.
And I felt like I’m stuck.
TOBIAS: Sakura’s
tattoos now hide one way
she dealt with her life.
SAKURA: And in certain light,
I can see the scars
from when I cut
myself to get away,
because I didn’t know what
else to do, but that was
my main addiction was cutting.
TOBIAS: Then came a
life-changing realization
as she talked with
her mom on the phone
watching the events
of 9/11 unfold.
SAKURA: And we’re watching
it together, and we see
the second plane hit.
And I realized at that point,
I need to be with my family.
I need to figure
a way out of here.
TOBIAS: Sakura moved
back to Omaha, and decided
not to follow him to
a new job in Florida.
SAKURA: He had threatened if I
can’t have you nobody will,
so I was concerned for
suicide as well as homicide.
And he had the gun, so
I know he had a means.
So we go to file a
protection order,
and halfway through the
paperwork, I remember looking
at my mom and saying, “I
just gotta let him go.”
Me filing this, he’s gonna
maybe try to fight it.
He’s gonna be living halfway
across the United States,
I just gotta let him go.
And the whole time he
was moving, he called,
I felt bad for him
like this is my fault.
And then he got to
Florida, and within about
a couple of months I was able
to finally, just break it off.
Emotionally break it off.
Like, the physical
part not a problem,
but the emotional
part, I had to do that,
and change my number and
haven’t heard from him since.
ANNA BREWER: Mean that survivor
where that survivor is.
TOBIAS: It isn’t
easy to identify victims
and help them
escape trafficking.
Anna Brewer knows
this from her years
investigating trafficking
for the FBI in Omaha
and other places.
Now, she helps educate and
train others about the crime.
ANNA: It’s difficult,
because first of all,
they don’t see themselves
as victims, right?
They see themselves in a love
relationship with their pimp.
That’s my boyfriend,
he’s not my pimp.
If I’ve heard that once, I’ve
heard it a million times.
So, self-identification
is very, very challenging.
Also, because it’s
hidden in plain sight,
it might not be that obvious.
Because it does look
like a partnership,
or it could look
like a partnership.
If the resources aren’t
there, it could be mistaken
for a domestic
violence relationship,
or just a sexually
abused person.
When in fact they’re a
human traffic victim.
LINDA BURKLE:
People want to go in and
swoop and rescue the victims,
and I get that.
I mean, believe me,
that’s my prayer everyday.
But the deal is, sometimes
the victims don’t
want to be rescued, because
right now they feel safer
with this person even though
they don’t really know
what’s gonna happen
from moment to moment,
because it’s what they know.
That person makes
all the decisions.
It’s a very, there’s lots
of rules and regulations.
The world is very small.
(car driving)
TOBIAS: “Laura” thought
she was on the road
to a better life the
day she left Omaha
for a trip to Chicago.
A couple of years earlier,
she was gang-raped
and then trafficked by
an abusive boyfriend
who also got her
hooked on drugs.
But she got help, got clean,
went back to school and church.
She met a new guy, a little
mysterious but nice, clean-cut,
just friends, no pressure.
They’d known each
other for about a year
when he told Laura he
was driving to Chicago
and offered a ride so she
could hang out with friends.
We’re masking “Laura’s”
identity at her request.
“LAURA”: We went to Chicago,
and the whole drive
he’s such a gentleman, nice guy.
And never would I
have guessed what
was about to happen to me.
I’m sitting in the
car, and he’s like,
“Can I use your
phone really quick?”
And, you know, being naive
and young just passed him over
what I would call my lifeline.
Oh, here you go.
Follow him inside, and
it’s like one of those
brick duplex houses,
so it’s like probably
four different little
apartments in one house.
And I remember going
in, and as we’re about
to go downstairs, he just
turns on me
and punches me in my face.
And I felt like the
blood just running down.
And he just looks
at me and he’s like,
“Don’t do anything stupid, do
whatever I tell you to do.”
So I’m thinking in my
head, what is going on?
What is he talking about?
From there, I was thrown in
a room with another girl.
Concrete floors, real dark,
it had little red lights.
I remember these
little red lights.
It was like a bed built into
the wall, but there’s blankets.
And the other girl, she
didn’t talk too much.
I had kind of found out
that she was from Florida.
She was there from
school and she met a guy.
That whole time was a blur.
Being drugged, beat,
raped repeatedly.
I mean, you wake up and
it was the next guy,
and you would just pray
the next guy was nice,
or pray that they
would use a condom.
You’re a product, you’re cattle,
and what’s so crazy about
it is, he had my phone.
He was using it to contact my,
my parents would contact
me, he would text as me,
and if they would call too much,
he would give me the phone.
But before any time he
would give me the phone,
he would threaten me and
say, “Remember, I know
“where your family lives.”
And, “Remember, I will
kill your nephew.”
You don’t know how many
days you’ve been passed out,
because sometimes they
would beat you so bad
that you would just
go unconscious.
You’d be so drugged
up, you don’t know.
But I do remember one
day, they came in,
and he told me we’re leaving.
And I was like, okay, yes,
now I’m gonna go home.
This nightmare is over, you
know, I did what I was told.
I get a chance to go home.
And he said, “No, we’re
going to South Dakota.”
And we get to South
Dakota and it’s like,
how do I explain it?
They would call it
like a trap house.
I mean, there’s drugs,
there’s prostitution,
there’s gambling,
lottering, you name it.
Everything is going
on in this house.
And the cycle begins
all over again.
One john after the next
john after the next john
after the next john.
And then when you think
you’re done, then you have
all the pimps and
them, you know.
They take their turn at
you, and whoever else
wants to take their turn at you.
Women, it didn’t matter.
And then I was told,
informed by the guy,
“We’re leaving here
and when we leave here,
“everything’s staying here.
“We’re leaving your phone,
we’re leaving, no one’s
“gonna know where you go.”
And I knew this was
a turning point.
If I didn’t do something
or if I didn’t try to run,
I could disappear.
I wouldn’t be sitting
here right now.
In my head, I had this
bright idea, and I made some
crazy story about my phone
needing a charger,
and the gas
station’s right here.
Here’s the house and
there’s this big fence,
and then there’s a gas station.
Get my purse, I know it was God.
I knew it was some adrenaline,
because I get over a fence
and as athletic as I have
ever been in my life,
I’ve never been able
to climb a fence.
But that day, I got
over that fence.
TOBIAS: “Laura” got to a
phone, got to local police,
who she says were
more interested in a
drug investigation.
Then she waited for her
parents to come get her,
and bring her back to Nebraska.
“LAURA”: My dad walked right
on in, and I just remember
getting up and
running to my dad.
I can’t explain the
feeling of seeing my dad.
The next day, my mom and
dad took me to the ER,
and I just remember
all the tests
and them looking over
my body and everything
that was wrong with me.
Truth be said, I pray
I can still have kids
after the damage
that’s been done to me.
But the physical
damage doesn’t compare
to the mental and emotional
damage that I had.
For a good three to five
months, I didn’t want
to leave the house for nothing.
If my parents weren’t
going, I wasn’t going.
It was just real,
how can I explain it.
It was just shell shock.
Everything scared me,
everything frightened me.
MEGHAN MALIK:
As we looked at the body
of literature out there,
one of the things that was
missing was survivor voice.
TOBIAS: Malik
hopes this Women’s Fund
commissioned report
changes that.
For this, two University
of Nebraska researchers
did in depth interviews with
22 trafficking survivors,
all women from
Omaha and Lincoln.
The survivors say threats,
coercion, violence,
psychological
manipulation, and drugs
led them to being sold for sex
and kept them under control.
(solemn music)
They say fear of judgement,
shame, even how they
were treated afterwards
by service providers
and law enforcement made
it hard to get help.
(solemn music)
They say lack of awareness
makes trafficking possible,
and they want
people to understand
traffickers and buyers
could be anyone.
(solemn music)
Survivors say they need
trafficking specific housing,
treatment for drugs and
addiction, mental healthcare
to deal with the trauma of
trafficking, basic life skills
like job training and
financial literacy,
and peer support groups and
community building opportunities
with other survivors.
MEGHAN: Hearing it from
those individuals who
have lived that life
is critical to us setting up
a system that’s gonna work.
And it was also critical
for us to knowing
how to best combat this.
RACHEL POINTER: I don’t know if
it’s still there or not.
So you could get from the
back rooms down onto the porch
pretty easily even
as a little kid,
knowing that it wasn’t
that hard to do.
So that’s where that
all started, really.
MIKE TOBIAS: That was a
decade of being trafficked,
starting when Rachel was
a six year old in a house
she says was full
of kids and chaotic.
As a result, easy to slip
out at night unnoticed.
She had a friend who
had an older sister
who had a boyfriend.
Rachel says that older
boyfriend raped her,
and then started selling her.
RACHEL:
He used my friend, threats
against him first of all.
“If you don’t do what
I’m telling you to do,
“then I’m gonna hurt him,”
and those kinds of things
as ammunition basically to
rope me and then started
with threats against my
family and other people
that I knew.
First, it was just random
other people coming over
to the house next door,
and then it was like,
well, I think that we
can probably do more
or get more out of you,
so let’s go to the house
down the street or around
the corner, or across town.
So it was not right away
but almost right away
within a couple of days.
TOBIAS: So, how often
was this happening?
RACHEL: Probably three, four
times a week, mostly at night.
He would either come
and tell me, this time,
or when this happens then
I’m gonna need you to do this
and leave your house.
Or, he would tell my
friend to tell me this,
after dinner tonight pretend
you’re sick or something
along those lines.
And then, “Go to bed
early and then sneak out.”
Those kinds of things.
Looking back on it now, I
feel like it was probably
a lot better orchestrated
than I even comprehended
at that point in time.
Of course back then, we
didn’t have the language
that we have today.
In my frame of reference,
growing up, I understood that
to be me being a prostitute.
It didn’t take long,
probably a few months,
before somebody else kind
of took that role over,
and he was still involved
for a little bit,
but at some point he
kind of fades out,
and just off the face
of the radar, basically.
And then it was just different
people, to be honest,
that today it would be this
guy and a couple days later
it would be another guy.
But you always knew
who was in charge,
and who was going to follow
through on whatever threats
that they made when
they came along.
I don’t know that I
necessarily processed anything
beyond surviving from
today to tomorrow.
Or figuring out how to keep
my mouth shut long enough
so that I didn’t actually
say the wrong thing
to the wrong person.
When drugs and alcohol
became part of the picture,
because a person can really
only take those kinds
of threats so much
before they start saying,
“Well, I’m gonna tell anyway.”
So drugs and alcohol
became part of the picture
at a very young age, seven,
eight, nine years old.
You know, people are really
good about not leaving marks,
super obvious marks.
So a lot of my bruises
and things like that
were in places that you
wouldn’t see unless you were
bathing or something
along those lines,
but definitely there were bones
that I didn’t know could hurt.
And muscles and things like
that that I didn’t even know
a person had.
For my dad, actually, when
I finally kind of came clean
to them about what had happened.
This was actually years
after the fact, but, he said
one of his big keys that
he just recognized later
was that I stopped talking.
I was a very jibber-jabbery
child, and I’m sure
that’s hard to imagine,
(laughter)
but I just stopped talking
at one point about the time
that I was six almost seven,
he said just stopped talking.
And that makes so much
sense now, but then,
he didn’t know what that was
about or really had no way
to kind of
investigate that more.
And then I had a couple
of doctors wonder,
“What’s going on with you?”
But there really
wasn’t any consistent,
“I’m seeing all this
physical trauma to you,
“what’s going on?”
A lot of the things that
I would actually go see
the doctor for were
easily explained
by being around a bunch of kids.
Pushed down the hill
sometimes, you know.
Skiing, quote unquote
skiing down this hill
back behind us actually
even as little kids.
“Spraining my ankle” and
those kinds of things.
And after a while,
it got to the point
where I was very uncooperative.
It sounds so weird to say
those kinds of things,
but in terms of business, I
wasn’t profitable anymore.
And basically said, you
either need to let me go,
or you need to do
whatever you’re gonna do,
because I’m done, I can’t
keep doing this anymore.
After a couple of weeks of
silence, I got the notification,
basically, to meet
them downtown.
And they made a pretty
significant threat to my self
and my family, and then I
never heard from him again
after that.
TOBIAS: No one ever
faced trafficking charges
for what happened to
Sakura, Laura, or Rachel.
And that’s common.
Because of the ways traffickers
control their victims,
some aren’t fully aware of
what’s even happening to them.
Add to that, the concept of
trafficking is fairly new
in the United States.
And resources to help
victims have been scarce.
Jaime Manzer says
in one year alone,
the SASA Crisis Center in
Hastings came in contact
with 14 trafficking victims.
How many of these led to
trafficking cases or charges?
JAIME MANZER: None,
in the human trafficking sense.
Other portions of the
crime were reported
in some of our cases,
whether it be as assault,
or whether that be
trespassing, harassment,
terroristic threats.
But none of our survivors
at that time reported
the sex trafficking,
the prostitution element
for any myriad of reasons.
In part, mostly because
they had a hard time
identifying with that
label themselves.
TOBIAS: The label of?
JAIME: Sex trafficking,
prostitute.
TOBIAS: Do you ever
find yourself saying,
“I wanna go back and have
this guy held accountable
“for what he did.”
SAKURA YODOGAWA-CAMPBELL:
Oh yeah.
I do, but I can’t think of
anything that the criminal
justice system has to
offer for me in this case
that any system,
honestly, has to offer.
I can’t think of
anything that would,
I don’t know, make
me feel better.
TOBIAS: When you tell your
story, what do you hope
people take away from it?
RACHEL: For any of the victims
and survivors out there
that there is a
life beyond that.
And don’t give up, because
we are fighting for them.
And if you’re out there and
you wanna reach out to us,
then we can get
together and hopefully
kind of help each other.
(solemn music)
“LAURA”: If anybody can take
anything away from my story is
it could happen to anybody.
Hopefully that it
opens people’s eyes,
that they start to be more
aware of their surroundings
and what’s going on.
Maybe it’ll make a mom check
their daughter’s Facebook
and stuff more.
My biggest thing is just I
share my story for awareness
so that there won’t
be another me.
Or I can save
another girl’s life,
and give a mom hope,
give a dad hope
that their child can
make it through it.
(solemn music)
SAKURA: I would not go
back for anything,
because those experiences
have put me in this seat today
to where I can talk
about the horrible things
that human beings are doing
to other human beings.
And hopefully be the one
person that’s gonna listen
to my experience.
And believe me, and realize,
yes this is horrible,
there’s something
I can do in hopes
that somebody else does not
have to go through this.
What I’m doing is not about me.
It’s about my daughter
and that generation.
It’s about other thousands
of women and children
that are subjected
to this everyday.
(solemn music)
RACHEL: We have a responsibility
as a community
to stop ignoring it.
There were a lot of people,
obviously looking back,
who could’ve
intervened and didn’t.
And because of that, there
are countless other kids
and adults, even, who are
still being victimized,
because we didn’t
recognize it back then.
So we have a responsibility
as a community
to step up and say
enough is enough.

  1. Help stop human trafficking!!!
    Every concerned citizen needs to purchase an infared heat detector. Everytime your at a gas station take a walk around and point this at car trunks. This will tell you if there is something in that trunk that is hot. I dont know how well it will work in the summer but I believe it will still work. You can take it to truck stops and fast food places especially after you hear of an amber alert. Or sit on a street corner as a homeless person and point the thermal sensor at peoples car trunks. Its a small thing that might yield big results even if it just saved one persons life!!!! Be ready with your camera to get those tag numbers!!! Then call 911 and your local media!!!

  2. Wow the cruelty of mankind has no limit. Horrific. Those people involved in raping and al of this trafficking stuff really need to rot in hell for ever. They don't deserve to be alive. If I was to ask they all would disappear from this earth pretty quick. They are monsters, not people.

  3. There is no way I am going to be sneaking out of my house at night to be abused on a regular basis. No way in hell. Also, that first lady who let that man into her house, no way. I would definitely call the police and have him arrested.

  4. You see people if we do not have a tougher laws on this kinda crime .This kinda crime will not stop . Nebraska is a State that protects this kinda offense .They shelter them after that they will cut them lose to the society again .

  5. Ugh, she has tattoos! WHY? And a nose stud! WHY? I have ranted about all this for years online, trying to help people understand how having tattoos and weird piercings can create a bad impression, attract the wrong type of people and limit your job opportunities! Why would she DO this to herself? What type of guy is she going to attract??

  6. ya i understand this i been though this over a decade it is very hard to get out but once you're free its theost liberating experience i ever had

  7. Pimps deserve death either by victim of their abuser or electric chair. A girl who kills her abuser should NOT be charged.

  8. Victims DO want to be rescued. They are just scared of what will happen if they don’t “stay in their lane.” And I’m going to stop saying they. WE have a right to be scared. Because we have records and the world still sees us as criminals and the world isn’t necessarily going to welcome us back, like you advocates are. So please don’t even say someone doesn’t want to get out. We are just afraid of being at the mercy of the system, rather than a pimp, if we’re bound to fail EVERY background check for an apartment or a job. That puts you at the mercy of the system to take care of you. A LOT more societal work needs to be done to give survivors an equal opportunity for a life, or we are not being rescued but, rather, condemned. At least we know that on the streets there is a place where we are welcome. THAT is what we are thinking. Also, a lot of people are afraid of reprisals.

  9. Why introduce it as 'its different from prostituting'? Stupid! Different altogether and doesn't need to be in the same sentence!! Some people prostituting themselves also don't have a choice! Don't put blame on people!

  10. Okay, I’m sorry, because this is a tragic, serious topic, but I’ve been watching for about 3 minutes, and I’m distracted by the tattoo on the first woman’s chest—what is that, a crudely-drawn man kneeling on a mountain?
    It’s great she ended up being a victim advocate. She’s turned all that pain into something she can use to help people. I admire that.

  11. Where is trafficking. Trafficking is kidnapping against the person well. These women can easily leave. Their parents know where they are

  12. INEZ Qtaish was not sold , Inez Qtaish is not associated with no sex trafficking scheme, Inez Qtaish don't even know sex traffickers, Inez Qtaish is not controlled by evildoers, Inez Qtaish control my own behavior, my own actions, Inez Qtaish is responsible for what ever I do., Inez Qtaish is against evildoings.

  13. Very scary world that we haft to release our children into…we haft to warn them about sex trafficking .. its hard because we don’t know who that trafficker could be

  14. I think, what is most interesting about our Judicial System is:  if I were to kill a sex trafficker, the courts would put me in prison.  So my conclusion of our judicial system is "sex traffickers" are valued, but our women are not.  Probably, the only thing that will change the system is, vigilante justice.  Private organizations should put a bounty on sex traffickers, kill them on sight.  I'm not against prostitution.  That should be a women's choice to make.  Many women like that lifestyle.  But kidnapping women, and forcing them to have sex for money, against their will should be a capital punishment.  And it seems the only way to change this practice is to declare "open season" privately on sex traffickers.  For those of you who are old enough to remember the Oprah Winfrey show (about 25 years ago),  Oprah did a survey on high school students, and found the following: eighty-five percent of the high-school boys thought there were entitled to have sex with their dates, if they spent a considerable amount of money on their date.  More alarming is that forty-seven percent of the high-school girls agreed.  Also, equally alarming is that these "high school" folks will grow-up, and be Judges, cops, lawyers, congressmen, senators, and so on, who will harbor the mindset of all people that Oprah Winfrey Show discovered.  In other words, 85% of our male population favors sexual abuse of women.  And folks, equally alarming is: this situation is World-wide!

  15. If you have a child, especially a daughter, this issue should concern all of us… I can’t imagine this happening to my son or daughter. This is abhorrent. We must teach our kids how not to become prey. We need to be introduced to their friends, especially romantic interests. We need to know their real identities and get their background checked. In this day in age, you can’t be too over protective about this issue.

  16. The men who pay for sex are the reason this crap keeps helping. The sick thing is most are dads with girls. And would kill a man if he did this to their wives or daughters. The buyers are the worst.

  17. I would get him to commit suicide while he was asleep and then maybe help him to disappear, it seems to me that this what he would want from me.

  18. People are doing children no favor bringing them into a world like this. In Hawaii alone–3,000 children a year go missing. Sex trafficking.

  19. They are so brainwashed and controlled by these men. It takes them a long time to get the guts to leave. Their whole psyche is damaged…. they feel they have no power of their own. I pray these women can be healed mentally and emotionally.

  20. I love all of you ❤️And you are beautiful in Gods eyes, our eyes 🙏And thank you for telling your story, which I know must be very hard for all of you, but by doing so, your helping a lot of VICTUM’S, and Women, Men, even Children from becoming their next Victum. Thank you🙏

  21. Sad this goes on so much more than ppl think. I a thankful these ladies got out I pray that other victims will get out and that the pimps get caught. No one should be forced to do anything especially sell their body. ❤️🙏

  22. These woman are so strong to have gone through hell on earth and survived. May God be with you and heal you and bless you and keep you safe always. You can keep on being strong with Jesus on your side. Accept Him and trust Him and pray. In Jesus wonderful name. Amen.

  23. Trauma Based Mind Control
    Split Personality Dualism Manipulation She ought to avoid TV and Movies and read only the Holy Scriptures and do knitting sewing, gardening, volunteerism, but avoid regular employment, take up and instrument and learn a foreign language.

  24. And really, when it comes down to it, our American Public Schools fail to deal with this subject effectively, other than, "Say NO," or "Tell someone," or "See something, say something," just once or twice (if we are lucky) a year. There is NO instruction about trafficking, what you can do, what resources. I am an American, a Public School Teacher, going on nearly 3 decades, and am absolutely horrified, I feel that this is in part due to the "politically correct" culture that has its claws into the mainstream media and political narratives that people in this country are "allowed" to know or ponder or respond to. So the System itself is part of the problem since it "controls" us to an extent.

  25. Bless all of you that has ever been in this situation. I cannot imagine and y'all are so brave. Y'all are so loved. Your beautiful and so is your heart. I hate anyone ever has to go through this. Laws should be stiffer for these people. I worry so much about this and already have talked to my daughter at ten year old about this. Because it's getting bad in our town. So I had to just talk to her and show her. Sure I watch her like a hawk but she will eventually be doing things and I want always be there. So I hope I got across to her. Another things it seems they been targeting places like walmart. They have had it at some around my house. My husband and I talked about it and he doesnt even want us to to Walmart at night but less face it. It can happen anywhere anytime. Please women have to watch out for each other. I pray for all of you. God bless 🙏

  26. Pimps and buyers are modern day Slavers.and should be in jail for life. And the girls and boys should have mental health care.available to them

  27. The girlsLadied lost trust that the court sentense the pimps the panidhment that he deserves. That is the readon of the unarchic level in nsbrasks.

Must panished to avoid from him even if he wanted (and he will want) to do this crime sgain. Hr could not to do it again.

  28. May the Lord completely heal you Laura in Jesus name!!!! Get back into reading the word of GOD everyday; the lord will sanctify you with his word. He will avenge you of your adversaries. John 17:17; Romans 12:19 KJV. Your sister in Christ.

  29. last story was very vague, very interesting but I just couldn't put it together. maybe she has more about her story in another video? God Bless all these girls they are all in my prayers.
