Take it from someone who scours through mainstream media outlets on a minute-by-minute basis to bring you alternative news you need to be aware of, I was shocked to learn there was barely any mention of the child sex-trafficking bust involving SEVENTY minors that happened 5 days ago in West Texas.
There was no mind-blowing breaking news interruption, nothing from Biden, and not a word from activist groups. But you better believe there was plenty of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard coverage just in case you missed the last SEVEN WEEKS of the trial!
According to BorderReport.com, seventy minors, many lured from their homes by online acquaintances and some subjected to sexual exploitation, are now safe thanks to the work of West Texas law enforcement agencies.
The missing children, many of them runaways, ranged from the age of 10 to 17. The children rescued included victims of sex trafficking and physical and sexual abuse. The majority of the children were located in West Texas, but some were located in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex as well as the state of Colorado and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. A coalition of federal, state, and local investigators rescued the children.
Results of the operation were released during a news conference on May 25, which we barely heard anything about. Granted the Texas School Shooting in Uvalde, which killed 19 students and 2 teachers, dominated the headlines, but you’d still think that SEVENTY children who were kidnapped and sexually abused would be a pretty big deal that the American people would want to know about.
This isn’t the first time this has happened in recent years. The previous bust, similar to this case, resulted in the return of 24 children home.
It was the first time that more than 15 area agencies and non-governmental organizations collaborated to locate missing children reported through the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and local law enforcement agencies. We heard a bit more about this case, but nowhere near as much as we should have.
More than half a million children go missing in the United States every year and some are never heard from again, investigators said.
“Federal and local officials are preparing to prosecute some of the adults hosting or holding the minors. However, that’s a process that takes time, sometimes because the children don’t want to divulge the full extent of their ordeal”, said Taekuk Cho, deputy special agent in charge of Homeland Security Investigations in El Paso.
It’s very concerning that we hear about these cases often in the United States, yet we rarely get to the bottom of who exactly is responsible for the actual sex trafficking? We witnessed a blatant cover-up of this recently in the Ghislaine Maxwell case where Maxwell was convicted of child sex trafficking, but the courts seal the records, giving no indication of who actually committed the crime. Why?
In many of the press releases that you dig through trying to get to the bottom of these cases, you always hear about the bust, and the agencies involved, but rarely any mention of the monsters who kidnapped and sexually abused the children.
It certainly leads one to think, why the cover-up? Why are these stories barely being reported by the MSM, and most importantly, why do we rarely learn of the perpetrators?
