    For the second time in two years, Los Angeles detectives have found a man dead inside the apartment of Ed Buck, a political activist who rose to national prominence in the late 1980s for his effort to recall the governor of Arizona, the authorities said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said it received a 911 call shortly after 1 a.m. on Monday from a person who claimed that a man inside a West Hollywood apartment had stopped breathing and could not be resuscitated. When emergency responders arrived at the residence, a second-floor unit on Laurel Avenue, they declared the...

    Singer Selena Gomez learned firsthand about some of the horrifying atrocities of sexual trafficking during her A21 internship, Christian author Ann Voskamp revealed. Gomez, who opened up about her volunteer work with the global anti–human trafficking nonprofit in an interview with Elle back in September, was taking notes when abolitionist Christine Caine shared of a grizzly discovery in Istanbul, Turkey. Caine, who leads A21, explained how 30 bloated bodies of young girls were discovered in a shipping container in Istanbul, with another 28 “gasping for one breath of air that isn’t thick with the stench of rotting evil.” She pointed...

    A Russian former escort has claimed disgraced former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer used to smuggle her into his apartment in a suitcase. “He used to sneak me into his Fifth Avenue apartment in a black suitcase … when his wife was away,” Svetlana Travis Zakharova told The New York Post in an interview published on Thursday. “My knees would be up by my face. When the doorman would ask if he could help, Eliot would say, ‘No, thanks,’” she added, noting that she was sneaked in this way at least 15 times. The woman first became known in 2016...

    Thousands upon thousands of Venezuelans pour into Colombia over the crowd cross-country bridge, their faces gaunt, carrying little more than a backpack. Rail-thin women cradle their tiny babies, and beg along the trash-strewn gutters. Teens hawk everything from cigarettes to sweets and water for small change. The young, the old and the disabled cluster around the lone Western Union office – recently established to deal with the Venezuelan influx – in the hopes of receiving or sending a few dollars to send home. Without passports or work permits, the Venezuelans – many with university degrees or decent jobs in what...

    A husband-and-wife duo ensnared female Chinese tourists in an oppressive sex trafficking ring, locking down at least two Portland homes as prostitution dens for their enterprise, federal prosecutors say. Sou Chao Li, 37, and Derong Maio, 37, of Concord, New Hampshire, face multiple charges of conspiracy to engage in interstate transportation and travel for prostitution, sex trafficking by fraud and coercion, and interstate transportation for prostitution, according to a Thursday afternoon announcement by the U.S. Attorney’s Office. A grand jury indictment for the husband and wife was unsealed on Thursday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The indictment alleges that...

    A strange thread runs through the most prominent women associated with Jesus: they are all women of, shall we say, ill repute. Most of their notorious reputations spring from sexual scandals. What does this say about Christ? An awful lot. If your habit is to skip over the genealogies in the first chapter of Matthew’s Gospel, you may have missed a treasure buried in this list of forty fathers who comprise Jesus’s ancestry (if we count Joseph), stretching as far back as Abraham. The hidden treasure is the five women: Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Jesus’s mother, Mary. Why are...

    Former Los Angeles Dodgers general manager and vice president Kevin Malone is a passionate man. It may well have been his passion that led to a confrontation with a fan in San Diego in 2001 that later resulted in his resignation from the senior circuit ballclub and proved to be the last moments of his 17-year Major League Baseball career. But in the years following Malone’s departure from baseball, God pointed his passionate heart toward a new area of interest, one that he wasn’t really fully aware of until he went on a trip to Thailand with his pastor at...

    I'll Be Honest ^ | 9/9/15 | Tim Conway
    Why in Hebrews 11 is Rahab singled out for her past sin and called a prostitute? We see here that her background was so sinful that her title has followed her for 3,500 years. This shows us that there is hope for the most defiled among us, and that no matter what title has been attached to your name there is hope for you if you come to Jesus Christ.

    We’ve covered plenty of stories coming from the ongoing corruption trials of donors to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio, but the most recent one is turning into a highlight reel for Page Six. We previously noted how de Blasio had been subpoenaed to testify in the trial involving campaign finance violations and bribery with City Hall donor Jeremy Reichberg and NYPD Deputy Inspector James Grant. Many of the details of those charges were routine, boring allegations of political malfeasance. Promises were made, donations were solicited and “favors” were done.But not all of the...

    They worked in brothels frequented by troops serving on the front line in northern France, but their role has been virtually erased from the history books. Thanks to a new Roundhouse art project, Cause and Effect, to mark the centenary of the end of the conflict, the wartime sex workers have been immortalised in a film with poet Hollie McNish. McNish worked with historian Clare Makepeace from Birkbeck, University of London, to create War’s Whores, which details the “significant minority” of men paying for sex on the front line.

    The woman sipped from a can of Mike’s Hard Lemonade, feeling carefree as she walked along Leavenworth Street in San Francisco’s Tenderloin. She thought she’d been invited out to celebrate her birthday. Instead, she said, her former pimp crept up from behind and dropped her with a roundhouse punch. Two men heaved her into a car trunk and they were off, forcing the woman to claw for her life in the dark as the vehicle careened along crowded city streets. Her life as a sex worker was dangerous, but now it had turned potentially deadly. Soon police were in pursuit...

    According to the head of one of France’s most prominent asylum seeker support organisations, the global network of human traffickers which aid migrants across borders into Europe and elsewhere constitute a $32 billion (Ł25bn) industry. “it is absolutely necessary to crack these various networks that thrive on the misery and credulity of a certain number of people and it is to be hoped that the victims will be protected,” Pierre Henry, director general of the asylum seeker support association Terre d’Asile, said. “Exploitation today includes, in addition to sexual exploitation, labour, forced services, slavery, servitude and even organ harvesting.

    Stormy Daniels has been adamant that money is not what motivated her to tell her story. That may be so, but she certainly finds herself able to make a lot more of it these days. Since allegations of a 2006 affair with Donald Trump and a $130,000 hush payment made by Trump’s lawyer surfaced in January, Daniels has become a household name—with the earning power to prove it. “Stormy’s essentially become the most famous porn star of all time,” says Alec Helmy, publisher of adult industry news outlet XBIZ. “And with that level of fame comes a windfall of opportunity.”...

    Tourist hotspot Amsterdam turns into a "lawless jungle" after dark with the police powerless to intervene against crime and violence, the city's ombudsman warned in an interview Saturday. "The city centre becomes an urban jungle at night," Amsterdam's official ombudsman Arre Zuurmond told Dutch daily Trouw, warning of illegal car and bike races zooming through the streets, open drugs sales and general mayhem. "Criminal money flourishes, there is no authority and the police can no longer handle the situation," he warned. Some 18 million tourists flock to Amsterdam every year -- more than the entire population of the Netherlands. ETC...

    Former President Bill Clinton was interrupted by protesters demanding the decriminalization of sex workers worldwide on Friday, while he was giving the closing speech at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam. Clinton had just begun addressing the crowd when the protestors began chatting and blowing whistles. “President Clinton, we demand for decriminalization of sex work worldwide and in the United States,” one protester shouted at Clinton. Another protestor shouted at Clinton, “we know you support sex workers, please help us!” Clinton remained silent on stage while the protestors shouted their demands at him. Once they concluded, he commended the conference...
