    That’s why sex trafficking should be included in the death penalty.

      Nope, we shouldn't even have the death penalty, they've already had to overturn 5%of convictions after being proven innocent, and the number is rising.
      If you really want to punish them you send them to regular prison, they'll get tortured until they have to kill themselves to escape it. Prisoners don't like pedos

      In a way, it's better she out her face out in public. Those traffickers won't target her again.

    Even though I'm a guy, I've been through the same sort of situation when I was 18. This is a very sick perverted world we live in. Sex Sickos/Sex Trafficker's need to be put away for the rest of their lives, so they will have to remember all the pain and anguish they brought upon those persons. I for one have forgiven the person that did me wrong, even though it really messed me up for years after that. We need to be the ones to make the change for better or life will only get worse in this world.

      Holy shit...I am so sorry. None of this "even though I'm a guy" stuff, you are a human being. As entitled to life and freedom as all of us. People don't understand for some reason that these horrifying offenses can happen to men too. You never need to excuse yourself because of their ignorance. I hope you have found peace. You've definitely done a great job searching for it.

      I think the penalties for f-ing with a postal worker are pretty severe. Once he put her in the van she was home free. Harming a postal worker can be a class D felony with a fine of up to $250,000 and up to 10 years in prison. Any kind of mischief against a federal employee is more serious than say, just fighting with your neighbour.

    7 years ago a UPS driver saved my grandsons life. My 17 year old grandson overdosed on heroin at his girlfriend's home. The girlfriend was dragging him out of her home like a piece of garbage. Her mother told her to get him out of her house and take home home and leave him in his yard. A UPS driver was at a stop lite next to her car and noticed my grandson slumped over and looking bluish. He yelled at the girl to pull over. He then went to her car and examined my grsnd son , he barely had a pulse, he called 911 and emt came and took my grandson to hospital.
    I did not know this UPS drivers name although I did attempt to find out who he was. So if you are out there thanks for saving my grandson's life.

    what gets me the cops know that area is a crime-filled place and prostitution aka sex trafficking. isn't a cop's job is to eliminate the crime-filled places and save the victims from crimes being done against humanity. Sex slavery is human trafficking. the community should demand it to stop and help the victims find their loved ones since most were kidnapped.

    I hope Ivan is okay and safe after being PUBLICLY Id'ied as the one who saved her. Had the criminals seen that - and knew what he looked like and his name they could have went after him as payback. Journalists need to THINK and reason these things out before the ID good samaritans in a situation like that. No one should be afraid to help others - but obviously, they need to be concerned if the media gets involved and wants to make sure the public knows who you are, where you work or live.

    • ImTheDaveman

      @radioheadnyc you somehow have lived a sheltered life. Criminals are criminals because they don't play by rules. Some are more aggressive than others. The world is not run according to the rules of The Brady Bunch. No one said never report a crime, no one said not to help others! I SAID, I as concerned about MEDIA ID-ing witnesses or heroes in gang crimes. Newspeople really do not care about the surviveors or heroes - they care about "Ratings". THATS what I said. READ before jumping to conclusions.

    • radioheadnyc
      radioheadnyc 6 months ago +2

      i write all that to encourage readers of this thread to not be afraid to be like the mailman, to not be too afraid of criminal, to not be afraid to help others.
      yes criminals can be dangerous, but if you don't directly hurt them in any way, if you don't be a jerk, if you don't incite them unnecessarily, they will leave you alone. They are just like any other businessmen, and are oftentimes more afraid of you than you are of them. Don't be afraid to stand your ground and protect what's yours.
      They are running a business that often makes more money than you can imagine. It's risky and costly for them to engage you.

      criminals are NOT going to go after mail man, because the mailman didn't fight or hurt any of the criminals. The girl ran off, the mailman didn't do anything against the criminals.
      If the criminals wanted to go after the mailman, they would have gone after him in the original incident, because they would have gotten the girl back immediately. That was the best and only time to go after the mailman. They were afraid of the mailman, that's why they didn't approach the mailman in the original incident.
      Now the mailman is a known public hero, and all the cops know who he is. Going after him is a big risk for the criminal. If anything happened to the mailman, there will be journalists and politicians involved, cops are not going to let it slide and are going to look into it. The last thing the criminal wants is the mayor to assign more police resources dedicated to looking into the criminal's trafficking business.
      And the criminal has nothing to gain from going after the mailman, because even if they killed the mailman died, they still won't get the girl back.
      For the criminal, go after the mailman will take a whole lot of work and time, for basically no money in return even if the criminal succeeds. Just to "get even" with a random stranger on the street who doesn't even know who you are and have nothing against you personally. Why bother? It's much easier to just find the next girl victim
      So no, I wouldn't be worried for the mailman's safety

      @Joe that probably isn’t her fault. I’m sure she was forced into a lot. Not saying she didn’t make any bad decisions of her own but, I guess there is no way to know that. I feel so sorry for her for what she’s been through and am so glad she was rescued.

    No mention of the abductors descriptions, age, race, possible name or alias', car make, possible location like apartment/house, color of said apartment or house, city block, or even police statement on their commitment in solving this crime. Yeah you can say...oh... they're doing all of that behind the scenes but some of this info is imperative for the general public as it's apparent there is a band of child sex slave network working in that area, and might help children in the area to avoid a similar fate.

      @Sachorna Brissett: Well, at least you found out what kind of person your biological father is in the process. He'd still be the same person even if nothing had happened to you, but you'd never realize it. There are a lot of shitty people in the world, and basically all of them can have kids. Some of those people are killers, some of them are molesters, and some of them are rape apologists. It's only natural you'd distance yourself from your father after finding out he's one of these people. At least you know.

    Damn, my sister could of been going through this. I honestly did not understand this at a time but they had these guys who was trying to kidnap her.
    Basically what happened, she was this manager at this store called “she’s happy hair” (smt like that) and she arrives early to open up. She started to notice this car that always come in before her. This kept happening. They stay then leave. To the point, it felt like they were tryna watch her on purpose. So she called in my mother and asked the bodyguard who she good friends with to come with her when she opens up. Cause at this point, she was freaking out. Ion what happened after that, just remember my mom telling me that they were tryna take my sister. I wouldn’t be able to see her if they actually succeeded.
    My sister quit the job, not cause of what happen but of something else, and now she thriving.

      @DarkPisces And you’re right, in a way. Firstly. evil doesn’t exist in its own way. Or at least good exists within evil, and there is no pure evil nor no pure good. Good (with a capital G) is absolute. Meaning it’s whole, and that Good has both evil and good. WE as humans created Evil (with a capital E) and that means pure Evil (no such thing exists). claiming that evil, and good are dualities when duality is an illusion. So we created Evil when we created this fake ass figure named the devil or SaTaN 😐 We create what we don’t understand. We split wholeness (which is a law of the universe) into duality. I believe in God. Just not the way they tell me.
