Super Bowling for Dollars

The great American game is another chance to foist false research on a gullible media

The push by advocates to gain publicity at any cost often involves local law enforcement. Once again, the Super Bowl became a platform to push a religious agenda and bogus numbers.

Last November, Dallas Police Sgt. Louis Felini was quoted predicting that up to 100,000 prostitutes would descend on the city for the Super Bowl.

"We believe, without a doubt, that God gave us the Super Bowl this year to raise awareness of what's happening with these kids," Deena Graves, executive director of Traffick 911, a local Christian group, told the Dallas Morning News.

Into this frothy mix of panic stepped the Women's Funding Network's Dallas affiliate. The WFN stirred up the fear even more by releasing a Texas edition of the bogus Schapiro Group study.

Becky Sykes, the chair of the Dallas Women's Foundation, told the Dallas Morning News that the study's January release was timed "to focus public attention on the problem because underage girls will be brought to Dallas and sold into prostitution during the Super Bowl."

Like its sister studies in Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, and New York, the Texas report relied on guessing the ages of women in online photographs accompanying classified ads.

And it came up with the same outlandish conclusion of a local sex trafficking epidemic: 740 Texas teens were sold for sex in one month, according to the research.

But the hard data afterward told a far different story: Police reported that the massive dragnet, involving multiple jurisdictions and the FBI, produced just 105 prostitution arrests—and only two involving juveniles.

The Super Bowl Prostitute Myth: 100,000 Hookers Won't Be Showing Up in Dallas.

Super Bowl prostitution: 100,000 hookers didn't show, but America's latest political scam did.

According to the media hype There was supposed to be hundreds of thousands of under age child sex slaves kidnapped and forced to have sex with super bowl fans. At the Dallas Super Bowl 2011.

WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL OF THEM?????

WHERE ARE THE THOUSANDS OF SUPER BOWL KIDNAPPED FORCED CHILD SEX SLAVES???????

Politicians, women's groups, police and child advocates were predicting that up to 100,000 hookers would be shipped into Dallas for the Super Bowl.

It was all a big lie told by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, government officials, and various anti-prostitution groups: Traffick911, Not for Sale, Change-org, Polaris Project, and the Dallas Women’s Foundation, which are anti-prostitution groups that tell lies in order to get grant money from the government and charities to pay their high salaries, and get huge amounts of money into their organizations. As proved in the links below:

Top FBI agent in Dallas (Robert Casey Jr.) sees no evidence of expected spike in child sex trafficking:

“Among those preparations was an initiative to prevent an expected rise in sex trafficking and child prostitution surrounding the Super Bowl. But Robert Casey Jr., special agent in charge of the FBI’s Dallas office, said he saw no evidence that the increase would happen, nor that it did.“In my opinion, the Super Bowl does not create a spike in those crimes,” he said. “The discussion gets very vague and general. People mixed up child prostitution with the term human trafficking, which are different things, and then there is just plain old prostitution.”

This myth of thousands or millions of underage sex slaves tries to make every sports fan a sex criminal. No matter what the sport is, or in what country it is in.

Brian McCarthy isn't happy. He's a spokesman for the NFL. Every year he's forced to hear why his customers are adulterers and child molesters. Brian McCarthy says the sport/super bowl sex slave story is a urban legend, with no truth at all.

These anti-prostitution groups lobby the government in a big way, getting Politicians to truly believe their lies.

Here are some good links about this:

It's amazing how easily Law Enforcement can use the media as their lapdogs in order to force an agenda and/or get a bump in the budget.
