in FBI Child Sex Trafficking Sting

COBB COUNTY, GA  –  Earlier this week, the FBI Metro Atlanta Child Exploitation Task Force held a sting to catch alleged sex traffickers and made multiple arrests in the process.  During the sting, a high-ranking Air Force Colonel was ensnared by federal agents.

The undercover sex bust unfolded Tuesday night at a Cobb County hotel at which Lt. Col. Willie Newson, 47, was arrested.  According to authorities, Newson thought he was meeting a 14-year-old girl at the hotel.  He was actually meeting undercover agents pretending to be a child.

Georgia Department of Defense spokeswoman Desiree Bamba told AJC.com that Newson is on the command staff of Maj. Gen. Jesse T. Simmons Jr., who is the commander of the Georgia Air National Guard.  Newson also was formerly the commander of the 165th Communication Flight of the 165th Airlift Wing, according to the official.

“Lt. Col. Newson’s alleged actions do not reflect the values we uphold in the Georgia National Guard,” she said.

As WSB-TV reports, the “undercover officer that Newson spoke with gave him the opportunity to stop communicating several times.”  However, Newson continued to pursue who he thought was a 14-year-old girl.

The Air Force Colonel was using a popular dating app to pursue the child.

On Tuesday, Newson was arrested on multiple charges stemming from the child exploitation charges.  After he was taken into custody, he immediately bailed himself out for $20,000.

He is currently on leave pending the outcome of the case.

“It’s upsetting to the safety of our kids, the safety of this community as a whole,” Mark Samuels, who manages the hotel where the bust took place.

As TFTP previously reported, another high-level government agent was arrested under similar circumstances. 41-year-old Donald Baldi, a Navy contractor with top-level security clearance was arrested and charged with second-degree distribution of child pornography and third-degree possession of child pornography.  Baldi was also released on bail.

Just down the road, in Fulton County, GA, a massive sting operation carried out by the FBI in metro Atlanta captured dozens of child traffickers and rescued 160 children who had been forced into sex slavery by their captors.  The operation concluded in June of this year.

Illustrating the massive scope of the sting, called Operation Safe Summer, it was a collaborative effort between the FBI and 38 other law enforcement agencies from six metro counties.

“They are crimes of special concern to the FBI and to law enforcement generally,” Special Agent in Charge Matt Alocke told Channel 2.  “Because the victims are so vulnerable as children and because the offenders could be from just about any walk of life, from a gang member all the way up to someone who is highly successful and wealthy.”

In total, the sting ensnared 150 traffickers.  Approximately 160 children, including some as young as 3-years-old were rescued.  According to Alocke, the sting was specifically timed to catch these predators before summer started as the trade tends to prey on children when they are out of school.

“It’s important for those of us who are responsible for the children, the parents, the guardians, the older siblings, to not let children fall away (from) those strongly centered circles of importance,” Alcoke said.

On multiple occasions, the Free Thought Project has reported interviews of former child sex trafficking victims who’ve all noted that they had nowhere to go as police and high-level politicians all took place in the abuse.

In case after case, the Free Thought Project reports on horrifying instances of child sex rings that were allowed to go on for decades because politicians — including heads of states — policemen, clergy, and others were all in on the sick game.

TX Law Enforcement Investigating ExNurse

The mother of one 2-month-old boy said he now has several fractured bones.

McKinney daycare worker suspected in at
least three Child Abuse cases

MCKINNEY, TX  –  New police documents show a former McKinney day care worker arrested for child abuse is suspected of hurting three infants.

Records show while police were investigating the first complaint against Jessica Wiese and looking at daycare surveillance video, they discovered two more possible cases that the babies’ parents didn’t even know about.

McKinney daycare worker arrested after baby goes home with broken bones

Six-month-old Henry is one of the babies former Joyous Montessori McKinney worker Jessica Wiese is accused of injuring.  His mother agreed to talk to FOX 4 as long as her face was not shown.

“I don’t know what to do, you know?  I don’t know what the next steps are.  This is all new to him.  This is what he thinks life is,” she said.  “And I can’t bear to think that anyone could hurt a precious baby.”

Henry’s mother said he has been in Wiese’s care since he was 8 weeks old.  Since then, she’s noticed him with a scratch.

“They said they would look into the video,” she said.  “I come back from work to pick him up.  ‘Oh, that’s not on the video.  There’s no video.’”

The first-time mom said on other occasions Henry came home with bruises and a bit of a black eye.

“At the time in my thinking, yeah he could’ve just grabbed the toy and hit himself,” she thought.

After another mother complained about bruises on her child, police investigated and arrested Wiese Monday for injury to a child.  The next day, Henry’s mother was contacted by Montessori management, Child Protective Services and police.  She said she was asked to watch video footage from the daycare to identify her son.

“It was her slapping the back of his head.  But that’s all I wanted to watch,” Henry’s mother said.  “I can’t watch any more than that.  It was pretty, pretty rough.”

An arrest warrant affidavit states that Wiese was caught on camera slapping Henry, “causing him to cry out in pain,” and then “slamming his head into the changing table” and finally covering his face “pressing down, crushing [his] face downward.”

Another affidavit states that Wiese was captured on camera that same day injuring another child by “body [slamming]” that baby onto the changing table.

Records reveal Wiese used to work as a labor and delivery nurse in North Texas but she had her license revoked for stealing and using drugs.

Henry and his mother spent part of Thursday at the hospital, getting a full body scan that will tell them whether he has any fractures as a result of her care.

“Just to think that someone has the nerve to hurt an innocent newborn baby,” she said.  “I can’t even put into words what should happen to her.”

The daycare said Wiese is no longer an employee.

McKinney police are still wanting to talk to the parents of any children who have been at Joyous Montessori since May 2016.

AG Paxton Defends State Ban on Barbaric Abortion Procedure at the 5th Circuit

AUSTIN, TX  –  A legal team from Attorney General Ken Paxton’s office today urged the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit to overturn a lower court ruling blocking part of Senate Bill 8, a law enacted by the Texas Legislature, which prohibits ghastly dismemberment abortions.

Abortion by dismemberment, which is performed in the second trimester, kills fetuses by using forceps to tear them apart limb by limb while they are still alive, causing the unborn child to bleed to death in their mother’s womb.  The law does not prohibit other second-trimester abortions.

“My office’s legal team exposed the horrific truth of dismemberment abortions, a gruesome, inhumane, and barbaric procedure that completely disregards respect for human life,” Attorney General Paxton said.  “During today’s arguments, we demonstrated that Senate Bill 8 is constitutional, and I’m optimistic that the 5th Circuit will uphold Texas’ lawful authority to protect unborn children from this abhorrent procedure.”

Although the U.S. Supreme Court previously held that states may pass laws to protect and foster respect for unborn life by banning inhumane abortion procedures, the U.S. District Court in Austin ruled against Senate Bill 8 the day before it was to take effect.

The Texas law was put on weeklong trial in November 2017 and the district court ruled in favor of abortion providers who challenged Senate Bill 8.  Attorney General Paxton immediately filed a notice of appeal to the 5th Circuit.  A three-judge panel of the 5th Circuit heard today’s oral arguments.

NM Man Jailed Over Child Not Sitting

Boy who couldn’t sit down at school
sparks abuse investigation

LAS CRUCES, NM  –  Authorities arrested a Las Cruces man suspected of spanking his young stepson multiple times and hard enough to leave visible bruising on the boy’s buttocks.

Joshua Salais, 23, is charged with one count of child abuse.  The charge is a third-degree felony count.

Investigators learned that on Oct. 22, 2018, a 7-year-old boy was at his elementary school and had difficulty sitting down, according to the Las Cruces Police Department.

The young boy went to the school’s nurse, where it was discovered he had black and purple bruising on his buttocks.

The boy indicated to authorities that he was injured by Salais, who had spanked him.

The boy also indicated that his mother had to intervene to stop Salais.

Las Cruces police detectives believe that Salais used a belt on the young boy’s bare skin 8 to 10 times over the last two weeks.

Investigators subsequently observed bruising, in different stages of healing, that were consistent with allegations of the boy being struck hard, multiple times over several days.

Custody of the young boy has since been turned over to his grandmother.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of Salais.  He was taken into custody Friday evening and booked into the Doña Ana County Detention Center where he was initially held without bond.
