Global Kingpin of Pimping Arrested

Global Kingpin of Pimping Carl Ferrer, CEO, Arrested
Statement by Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of NCOSE

Washington DC – On Thursday, as a result of a three-year investigation spearheaded by the California Attorney General’s office, authorities in Texas arrested CEO Carl Ferrer on felony charges of pimping a minor, pimping, and conspiracy to commit pimping. Warrants for the arrest of controlling shareholders Michael Lacey and James Larkin have also been issued. They stand charged of conspiracy to commit pimping. The National Center on Sexual Exploitation (NCOSE) applauds these actions and is optimistic that at long last the executives will be held accountable for their role in the sex trafficking and exploitation of countless individuals.

Backpage’s profiteering from sex trafficking and prostitution is equivalent to the East India Company’s facilitation of the African slave trade,” said Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. “Their business model is based on sexual exploitation. Serving as a global, modern-day auction block, Backpage collects fees from individuals posting advertisements offering human beings who are bought and sold for sex.”

“The California Attorney General’s office reports that during the period of January 2013 to March 2015, 99% of Backpage’s worldwide income was directly attributable to its ads selling people for sex. With sites in cities around the world, Backpage ads in California alone are reported to have generated $2.5 million per month and more than $51 million during the 29-month period. Additionally, Ferrer created similar sites such as and with related content to expand the company’s market share of the sexual exploitation industry.”

“Notorious for its role in the sex trafficking of minors, it is important thatBackpage is also denounced for advertising prostituted women and men,” Hawkins added. “Prostitution is inherently exploitive and harmful, and is an illegal activity in which no company should be engaged.”

“I expect Backpage may claim Ferrer, Lacey, and Larkin are protected by Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, which protects Internet providers from liability for user-generated posts,” Hawkins continued. “However, the public should know that the CDA was originally intended to protect children from pornographic Internet material. In a tragic irony,Backpage―with the support of other tech industry titans― flouts the spirit of the law by using legal misinterpretation as a license to profit from sexual exploitation. So yesterday’s arrest of Ferrer marks a historic moment in the movement against sexual exploitation. All those who hope for a world free from sexual exploitation should be greatly encouraged that the California Attorney’s General office has acquired the evidence necessary to finally bring this global kingpin of pimping and sex trafficking to justice.”

Founded in 1962, National Center on Sexual Exploitation is the leading national organization opposing pornography by highlighting the links to sex trafficking, violence against women, child abuse, addiction and more. The organization changed its name from Morality In Media to the National Center on Sexual Exploitation early in 2015 to better describe the organization’s scope and mission, which is to expose the seamless connection between all forms of sexual exploitation.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Is Now My S.O.N.

My husband and I were watching The Man From U.N.C.L.E. binge this weekend on “Decades” TV. We both enjoyed this popular, award-winning spy show as kids in the 60s, and I, like many other girls, had a crush on blond, “long-haired” David McCallum who played Illya Kuryakin. Co-star Robert Vaughn as Napoleon Solo was quite handsome as well—although he had the traditional clean-cut hairstyle and appeared older or more mature to me back then. I mean, as a kid, I thought he must be at least 40!

But as we were watching this weekend, I began to notice how YOUNG they both looked. Sometimes the camera would hit them at just the right angle and they seemed to have such baby faces. What was going on? I never felt that way before! What was different? Then it occurred to me. These men were now the same ages as our grown sons! I am old enough to be their mother! Eww.

So no wonder the show felt a little different to me. I was getting older, while Napoleon and Illya were locked in time. I even checked Wikipedia to find out their ages, and sure enough they were in their early to mid-30’s throughout the show, which ran from 1964-68. They are both 83 now. Wow. When my parents were that age, they were dead!

Okay, so now it seems a little weird to be crushing over baby-faced Illya. But at least I can still dream about being an U.N.C.L.E. secretary, like Barbara Moore who joined the cast as Lisa Rogers in the fourth season. Oh those beautiful women in their classy skirts and tops, fiddling with computer knobs and delivering important messages to all the spies at UNCLE Headquarters. The intrigue! The glamour! But wait, I think they only hired pretty, young women. So I’m too old for that, too. Sigh.

Oh well, the show is still fun to watch, even if those “uncles” are like sons to me. They are so cute, I just want to pinch their cheeks!!

Ravi D: 

Cindy, life is no fun without mind altering drugs and what people do in their own home is none of your or my bussiness. People cook crack in their homes can I stop them? No! Do I find them and tell them not to do it or something? Cindy id LOVE for you to go to the worst hood in Compton or Chicago where you live.....and tell someone selling crack cocaine not to do it. Id love to see that.You'd knock on the door of a crack house and start preaching. Well, you'd get about 2mins in before that person shut the door in ur face or stabbed you and put you in a shallow grave somewhere. People sell illegal drugs as a JOB and probably make more money than whatever you get from disability so why dont you shut the fuck up and quit talking before someone hurts you. Hopefully someone finds your address and burns all those creepy dolls and makes you act like an actual adult instead of a whiny little baby who plays the victim in order for people to feel sorry for her. LOL well we dont. Cindy, you got butt fucked as a child probably by your uncle or the creepy man at the park. GET OVER IT WE DONT CARE. Get some pills and some therapy and grow up! Whatsmore you are ugly and no one feels bad for you people would probably murder you(I wouldnt) no joke hope you have ADT or something. I would of jumped by now if I were you. Found a really tall my favorite dolly and jumped. Thats your other best bet.

Hi Cindy,
Respectfully,there is usually a difference between medical grade marijuana and regular pot. The safest means of using mj for relief of pain for instance, is by using cbd oil,which is mot psychoactive. There are many cancer patients who find relief from their pain symptoms by using medical marijuana, and who am I to deny them an opportunity for relief from that excruciating pain? Please rethink your position on MM vs ordinary pot.
Best regards,
Tony Fa├žade (remember me?)

Cindy's reply:
So, first of all, this Tony guy is the same guy who has posted mean comments about me, making fun of me for not "pleasing my husband" (to put it delicately). And now he is talking to me about MEDICAL marijuana, asking me to "rethink my position" on it, telling me that it is safe, etc. AARGGHHH, has he not read a thing I have written over the years??? It is because of people like him that I realize we all need to keep speaking up against pot. It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Do we really want jerks like him to walk around actually USING a mind-altering drug?? HECK NO!

Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using all the THOUSANDS of comments and emails I have collected, to show what these "medical" users and supporters are like! The world needs to know!! It is so depressing. I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters and growers would be NICE, and surely agree that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally. What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and get high on POT? At any age? And I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! That's all I'm saying! You guys always think that just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, that I'm all "hung up on pot" and think that it's all dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life" and that I am all against "medical marijuana." I never say that! All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally, that this is good morals and just plain common sense! And I am NOT against medical marijuana or ANYTHING that truly helps someone with a true medical condition! But as I said, I have yet to find any kind of true, decent medical marijuana user! It is just crazy!!! 
Why did he ask me to "rethink my position on medical marijuana"? Why can't people understand that I am just saying we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs RECREATIONALLY! It really isn't that hard of a concept to grasp!! And I have explained this over and over so many times for the past 15 years online, how can people not understand it by now??
