As with their recent arrest of dozens of people involved in various sex crimes, including Disney employees involved in sex crimes against children, Florida police have just struck a heartening blow against those sex criminals in their state, arresting dozens of people involved in either providing or soliciting paid-for sex “services.” Or, in plainer language, prostitutes and their johns.
The week-long arrest of those prostitutes and their customers was called “Operation Fall Haul II.” It was meant to find and rescue the victims of sex trafficking.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office, responsible for the massive operation, released a press statement on the matter in which it discussed what happened, gave credit to those involved in conducting the operation, and provided details on some of the notable johns arrested. Beginning, the statement gave due credit and noted that some victims of sex trafficking had been rescued, saying:
160 people were arrested by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office Vice Unit during a seven-day undercover human trafficking operation, “Fall Haul 2,” which began on Tuesday, August 30, 2022. PCSO was assisted in the effort by police departments from Winter Haven, Haines City, Lake Wales, Davenport, and Bartow, as well as the Office of the State Attorney 10th Judicial Circuit, State Attorney Brian Haas, members from the Florida Department of Children and Families (DCF), and social services organizations: One More Child, Heartland for Children, My Name My Voice, Selah Freedom, and the Children’s Home Society of Florida who provide on-site services to identified or potential trafficking victims.
Those who travelled to provide prostitution services were screened by detectives and the social services organizations to determine if they were being trafficked or exploited by others.
Two trafficking victims, and another five possible victims, were identified. All prostitutes taken into custody were offered services by the social services organizations at the operation. Follow up will be conducted with those who are suspected to be sex-trafficked or exploited.
Continuing, the statement went on to quote the Polk County Sheriff, Grady Judd. He, speaking on the matter of the operation and what its goals were, said:
“The online prostitution industry enables traffickers and allows for the continued victimization of those who are being trafficked. Our goal is to identify victims, offer them help, and arrest those who are fueling the exploitation of human beings (Johns) and those profiting from the exploitation of human beings. Prostitution is not a victimless crime – it results in exploitation, disease, dysfunction, drug and alcohol addiction, violence, and broken families.”
The press release then went on to describe some of the interesting facets of the operation. Those included “26 of those arrested told detectives that they are married,” “Criminal histories of everyone arrested included 419 previous felonies and 619 previous misdemeanors. Some of the prior histories include charges for kidnapping, robbery, aggravated battery, and sex offenses.“, “12 suspects told detectives they receive government assistance“, and “7 of the arrested are suspected of being in the country illegally.”
So a bunch of criminals bizarrely let back out on the street, illegal immigrants, and welfare queens were taking advantage of sex slaves. Sounds about right.
But it wasn’t just typical members of the criminal sludge oozing around America that were arrested. Two Disney workers were as well, as the Polk County Sheriff’s Office also reported, saying:
57-year-old Guillermo Perez of Winter Garden was arrested for Soliciting a Prostitute (M2). He responded to an online escort advertisement and agreed to pay $80 for a quick visit to have sex with an undercover detective. Perez is employed as a bellhop at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort.
26-year-old Samy Claude of Orlando was arrested for Soliciting a Prostitute (M1). He responded to an online escort advertisement and agreed to have sex with an undercover detective. When Claude arrived at the residence, he brought a bag of sour Skittles for the undercover detective. He is self-employed as a photographer and is often contracted by Disney.
Want them around your kids? Probably not. But they worked for the woke mouse, which must care more now about pushing wokeness on the kids than keeping them away from those hiring prostitutes. Sounds about right.
Oh, and a Georgia cop tried paying for sex with White Claw. So that’s nice:
49-year-old Jason DiPrima of Kingston, Georgia was arrested for Soliciting a Prostitute (M1). DiPrima responded to an online escort advertisement and agreed to come to an undisclosed location to meet the detective. He initially agreed to pay the undercover detective $120 for a half hour of “full service” sex. When he arrived at the undisclosed location, he confirmed the arrangement by giving the undercover detective $180 and a multi-pack of White Claw Hard Seltzer. DiPrimia is the Deputy Chief of Administration for the Cartersville Police Department in Georgia
All in all, it sounds like quite a few scumbags are off the streets.
