kiko was a prostitute on the streets of l.a. during her teenage years it's a possibility that she might have. but she is wrapping hits but she's not really being cooperative so what i'll do i'll contact after today i think that sounds very promising i'll see here yeah hopefully on our it. is part of the charity journey out which is made up of former trafficking victims she comes several times a week and touch to the women in their cells about her personal experiences to help get them off the streets but when i disclose that i used to be in the life myself they're like they're willing to listen and i always tell them it's the very easy to change something that has been a part of you since you were a child. but i let them know that if i can do within those 6 no reason or
a way that they couldn't do it because i don't want special. 30 years old it's a miracle that has survived growing up in los angeles she was raised by a mother suffering from depression and a violent father who was addicted to crack cocaine and 12 years old after running away from home she agreed to get into a stranger's car. said that he noticed that i was nervous and he offered me some marijuana i tried it for the 1st time and i i passed out or blacked out and. next thing i know i was waking up in this strange place full of pain because i was being raped at the time eventually managed to get away she spent. he's wandering the streets alone. at that time i was
suicidal i didn't want to live anymore so i knew the longer i stayed in the streets so it would take my life i knew that hopping into anyone's car walking around the streets a middle and i that someone would eventually abducted me and take my life. under the control of a pimp who took advantage of her vulnerable state and he says oh well you've done it before now you can do it again under. with with a little bit more guidance and you know as long as you do what i tell you to do i will have to beat you. is your media a reflection of reality. in
a world transformed. what will make you feel safe. high salacious community. are you going the right way or are you being. direct. what is true what is faith. in the world corrupted you need to descend. to join us in the depth. in the shallows. a new gold rush is underway and gone or thousands of ill equipped workers are flocking to the gold fields hoping to strike it rich here's a good. as they. were children are torn between gold. my family was very poor i thought i was doing my best to get back to school which side
will have the strongest appeal. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in. spearing dramatic development the only really i'm going to resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk.
tika was only 12 years old her abuser didn't sell around the streets and as he was scared of the police instead she would be sent to motels or the customer's home or deal would last 2 years. one guy told me that i was too i was too old i was probably about 14 years old at the time so obviously they were in that they wanted someone that wasn't as physically mature but wanted someone to look at the young as possible so i started to go to figure our which was a famous track in los angeles and i started to work on the streets. for 4 years it was passed from one pimp to another around 10 in total she managed to get
away by leaving california and finding love however her years of prostitution were so violent that her body has been left permanently damaged i can't have many children because of that. because of the stuff that i've been through. it's very hard for me to. you know because my harmonise are telling me that i need to reproduce but at the same time i see what i'm able to give to other people and other children and i probably wouldn't be able to do the work that i do the way that i do it if i did have children so it's a hard pill to swallow but it's it's. the reason so many women are falling into the hands of pimps is probably because in the u.s. pimping has now entered popular culture. pimps are appearing more and more on social media they show off their new recruits
and tattoo their name on them to show that they are their property. tonight the hollywood vice squad are leading an operation that is turning getting sex traffickers sergeant laurie oakes has been in the squad for 13 years and knows their techniques well. these women get dropped off by men who pretty much run them and we call them because they need their supervisors or pimps and they are the ones who pretty much stick with these women and put them on the street to work and they take the money from that. the supervisor oversees dropping off and watching the girls who are working the street the also collect the money to give to the pin in general they hide in darker
side streets close to the intersection. so they stay out here because they have the western corridor which is to the east and then figo up which is farther west. and then i don't use both is back and forth and this is where they treat women we are going to go with sergeant laurie oh she is on the lookout for any unusual behavior coming from drivers in fact prostitutes are often followed from a distance by their supervisor or pimp to protect them. go for it. i'm not going to. enter what i'm going. to go on the market. just a few streets away his colleagues have just stopped a prostitute who is getting into a car with 2 men in the front both the woman and the 2 individuals are arrested for
sergeant this is unusual and they have these males driving around she made cars. but don had some sense unless she got an idea. that it's not common for a female to be picked up by 2 males and i. think it's a safety issue for that. the driver is saying that the girl is his cousin and he's dropping her home after a family get together. he did biggio for somebody to do. i. was able to visit a very. young woman however gives a completely different story. i. think i was. present.
when the searching the prostitute police find several condoms in an inner bra. in the man's car they find bundles of dollar bills an empty alcohol bottle and boxes of pills which they also find the same brand of condom as the girl sergeant laurie oakes concludes that the evidence is overwhelming for these 2 guys and what they have right now basically is possibly a supervisor and this and them being the supervising the feel now that she is ok and then taken a different locations that are managed by somebody else which will be the. 3 suspects are placed into the cars they will head to the police station where detectives will attempt to clarify the specific role of each person.
sergeant continues his patrol. another young woman has just been arrested in a street adjacent to western avenue. her supervisor or pimp has definitely just dropped earth. further away from the scene surgeon laurie is thinks he spotted a suspicious vehicle. frequency at the. pier institute in a dodge magnum. lincoln mixer all through 6 years watching the whole time he took his 1st girl down and he is now going northbound on western and the number one made number to leave. me here and stop at the stop sign that is. when we get units to
take this guy down. you know we're at the santa monica and tried my western at santa monica and. he's going front of your name taken down. after being chief the driver pulls over and doesn't resist. he was there he backed up watch this still. doing it and as we were driving off he was looking to make sure if she was looking so he gives it like a sort of a signal like don't say nothing and don't speak and then he gave me the which
training and experience of so much time on the job i know what that means he's involved. in his trunk the police find items that leave no doubt about his activities. you know there are a lot of fun bones. when introduced to me to other people's ladles. see just the fact that he beats out here. in the car they find the i.d.'s of 2 young girls one of them belongs to the blonde girl who was arrested earlier. now we also found the girls i've been in there with they did together so now we've got them all going up together so now the investigation begins about human trafficking. this expected pimp is taken to
the police station despite the evidence he is denying everything he insists that he doesn't know the young woman. but. his daughter doing this you know. it is very sort of the wrong dog choose to stare at their walker or at their disposal or syria but i want to say something to your marriage you know marriage is your warm enough you know you're serious i'm sure or maybe in the end. the mirror was so which you're doing. your prayer to this. is this very. very big you know i mean i was going.
oh. oh oh dear the operation has been a success for sergeant laurie house. pimping is punishable by 6 years in prison this man who had 2 girls under his control was therefore at risk of 12 so yes always always found learning together we called her phone this phone answers or whatever id was in her car was it is car right so we know there's stuff going on i do way he's going to go down for at the very least supervise their trust to show no i think very nice and big to fit. in 2018 more than 106 traffickers were arrested by the l.a.p.d. 6.
