Episode 8: When Fantasy Turns to Nightmare​

(Original air date  07/14/16)

​​Episode Description


This week we are going to continue to explore the intricacies of the grooming process and how predators use our own imaginations to ensnare the vulnerable.  Whether it is an adult male in Thailand, a single woman in Las Vegas, a sweet 14-year-old girl sending an Instagram or a teen boy obsessed with winning at World of Warcraft, no one is safe.
 
Predators are manipulators. What starts out as an innocent fantasy quickly ensnares the victim and they are powerless to get free. This show will delve deep into the abyss of human exploitation and the psychology behind blackmail, sextortion, forced labor and prostitution.

Episode 13: A Look At Human Trafficking in the Global Migration and Refugee Crisis in Europe and the Middle East  - and how that affects you as a U.S. Citizen

(Scheduled air date  08/18/16)

​​Episode Description


Millions of individuals around the globe have lost everything due to war, gangs and political unrest in Syria, Ukraine, Africa, and Latin and South America. Some have been forced out as their homes are bombed and others have chosen to find a way to escape gangs, cartels and ISIS through migration to keep their families safe. Families have been separated and reduced to the possessions on their back. Most have no income and millions are just trying to find a way to safety and stability. Women are especially vulnerable to rape and being forced into sex trafficking.

Our guest this week will be Dr. Skip Lanfried, the Global Freedom Pastor for Yorba Linda Friends Church. Dr. Lanfried just returned from visiting the refugee camps in Turkey, Jordan and Greece. He will share about some of the people he met, the challenge of dealing with gangs, and child exploitation in refugee camps. Dr. Lanfried will tell us the stories of real people, in real danger desperately trying to save their family from sex and labor exploitation. This will be a truly fascinating discussion as we attempt to fathom just how quickly a life can go from safety and success to complete destitution and annihilation.

Human Trafficking & Child Pornography expert, Opal Singleton, has educated tens of thousands of first responders, government agencies, civic leaders, school administrators, medical personnel, faith-based organizations,  parents & grand-parents about how predators operate and how to prevent young people from

Episode 6: The Truth About Male Sex & Labor Exploitation

(Original air date 06/30/16)

​​Episode Description


This week on Exploited – Crimes Against Humanity we are going to explore sex and labor trafficking of males.

Trafficking involving males often does not get enough attention. Sometimes it is an adult male who is being exploited through labor and sex trafficking. Sometimes it is an unsuspecting teenage boy who is lured in through the promise of a modeling  job or a free iPhone. Sometimes boys are sextorted through relationships developed via apps like Grindr or video game chat rooms where they have bonded with their new friend. Sometimes it is “survival sex,” known as trading your body for food and shelter to have a place to stay. Research shows that over 60% of exploited males are heterosexual.

Episode 7: The Power of Fantasy in Grooming

(Original air date 07/07/16)

​​Episode Description


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.

 This week's show is going to examine the power of the grooming process. 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 is a show every parent and grandparent should hear.

This is where you will find upcoming show information with links to the cases that will be discussed.

Episode 9: When a “GAME” is not a “GAME!”​

(Original air date  07/21/16)

​​Episode Description


There are an estimated 1.8 BILLION video game players in the world. In many ways, it is how our kids learn, communicate, and express themselves. Technology is not good or bad. It is how we choose to use it AND how we teach our young people to live in an electronic age to protect themselves from exploitation.

Your child’s innocence may be at stake! This week’s show will explore how pedophiles and predators use apps, chatrooms and games to access, groom, recruit and exploit young people. Gaming requires the player to maneuver between a world of fantasy and a world of reality and not become the prey. We will look at Pokemon Go, Minecraft, World of Warcraft, Black Ops, Grand Theft Auto V as we also talk about DIGITAL MORALITY.

Join us for a fascinating discussion you won’t hear anywhere else!

Episode 3: The Psychology of Pimping & Grooming; Live Streaming Child Sexual Abuse; and Global Migration Exploitation

(Original  air date 06/09/16)


​​Episode Description

Police uncovered a national child sex ring covering 23 states and 60 victims -- many under age. These pimps were brutal monsters who groomed and broke the girls into compliance. We will explore the psychology of pimping.

How does a predator reach a child, seduce them so they can open the door to trust them, and then groom them so that they will become trapped in a world of exploitation? This segment examines the psychology of grooming based on Opal Singleton’s book, “Seduced: The Grooming of America’s Teenagers.”

Child sexual exploitation being live-streamed around the globe is a fast-growing global phenomena. Men sitting in the privacy of their own homes exploit children living in poverty struck countries. We will examine the technology that makes this possible.

We are in a unique time in history where literally millions of individuals are being uprooted and displaced. Most of these are good people, who are desperate, but easy prey for exploitation.
