signs of the end of the world: rape video games

my homage to rem’s its the end of the world as we know it and sport’s illustrated’s sign that the apocalypse is upon us…beyond a moment of zen, this feature displays wtf on steroids! leaving the realm of being humorous or laughable and entering the reality of really disturbing with(at least)one foot in evil territory.

facebook users should go to the original post for the disturbing video report

this will have people nostalgic for the good old innocent days of grand theft auto!

i especially like the couple who finds these games to be somewhat acceptable without a hint of social consequences. anybody ever consider the limits of freedom? …the diminishing returns on limitless freedom?

perhaps even more heinous?…equally heinous? is this tidbit about japan: “The national government is considering making possession of child pornography illegal — currently it is not. But this possible change to the law is due to outside pressure, not internal protest.”

“Japan has ways of expressing sexuality that are practically indecipherable to a Western sensibility but that are so normalized in Japan that the Japanese don’t often understand or acknowledge the critiques that are made against them,” Cleveland says. Cleveland believes the international debate will pressure Japan to amend its laws, making it harder for hentai games to be sold and distributed. He believes Japan will not comply for moral reasons but because “it’s politically expedient.”

signs of the end of the world: what you don’t want to know about bestiality

this is a real story as it appeared in the vancouver sun. the picture is equally disturbing.

Bestiality ban in Netherlands to cut video source

AMSTERDAM – The Internet potentially will lose one of its main sources of bestiality videos under a ban approved on Tuesday by the upper house of the Dutch parliament.

The new law bans human sex with animals, including in private situations where the animals are not injured, and prohibits the production or distribution of animal pornography, a summary of the law posted on the upper chamber’s website said.

Given the illicit nature of the product, precise figures on animal pornography video sales are difficult to find, but the Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad, in a 2007 survey, found that distributors in the Netherlands were responsible for some 80 per cent of bestiality videos worldwide.

The bill was introduced in April 2007 and passed the lower house in July 2008, but took time to make its way through the upper house to final approval. It was not immediately clear how soon the law would go into effect.

Sex with animals had been legal in the Netherlands, as long as it could be proven the animals were not injured.

signs of the end of the world: superbowl sex trade

here is the dark side of any major sporting event.  some countries even legalize prostitution during soccer tournaments perhaps in an attempt to capitalize on tax revenue. the bright side is that there are people attempting to help.

Volunteers try to help young sex workers on Super Bowl weekend

(CNN) — Volunteers are taking to the streets of Miami, Florida, this weekend to provide alternatives for teenage girls working the streets as prostitutes on Super Bowl weekend.

Just as Miami’s hotels, restaurants and retail stores are seeing a bump in business for one of the biggest sporting events of the year, law enforcement and social service agencies say they are also witnessing a spike in trafficking of underage sex workers.

“Many social service agencies and law enforcement agencies recognize that there was an increase of victims of trafficking during last year’s Super Bowl,” said Regina Bernadin, Statewide Human Trafficking Coordinator for the Florida Department of Children and Families.

“That correlates with research that whenever there’s a convention, a concert or a large event, traffickers will bring girls to the area to serve the influx of visitors,” she added.

Girls and young women, as well as their pimps, come from as far as New York and Texas to meet the increased demand, says Brad Dennis, director of search operations for KlaasKIDS Foundation, which is spearheading the outreach effort.

“It’s just that party culture,” Dennis said. “Super Bowl is an entertainment event and everyone wants to come down and party and when you throw that mix into an area with lots money to spend, it’s a traffickers’ playground.”

Due to the clandestine nature of underage sex trafficking, it’s hard to track the exact number of girls who are brought in for the Super Bowl and other big events. But a look at online escort listings gives some clues, Dennis said.

One free online site offered 38 ads for Miami on January 16, but more than 200 on Saturday night, he said. It was impossible to tell how many of the advertised escorts might be underage.

On less high-profile weekends in Miami, Trudy Novicki, Executive Director of Kristi House, said her organization looks at the number of reported runaways as an indicator of how many girls could be working in the sex trade.

“We know that a very high percentage of runaways will end up being approached by a pimp within 72 hours of hitting the streets and they will be prostituted in order to survive on the streets,” Novicki said. “So we know there is an extremely high correlation between runaway juveniles and underage prostitution.

Kristi House is also helping to coordinate the Super Bowl weekend outreach, Novicki said.

The profile of a typical runaway cuts across socio-economic lines, Novicki said, but many of them leave home to escape some form of abuse.

In an effort to reach those girls, state and local law enforcement agencies are teaming up with social service agencies to coordinate nighttime outreaches to girls on the streets.

Starting Wednesday, small teams of three or four volunteers have set out each night scoping the streets for potential trafficking victims, covering ground from Fort Lauderdale to South Beach to Hialeah. The hard part isn’t locating the girls but finding an opportunity to approach them without drawing the attention of their pimps, said volunteer Eddy Ameen.

“Safety’s always an issue because we know the girls aren’t alone. We have to make sure we’re not presenting potential harm to them,” said Ameen, executive director of StandUp For Kids Miami.

If they get a girl’s attention, they hand her a card with a hot line number for resources on how to get out of “the life,” Ameen said.

“It’s usually a very brief encounter — just a few minutes, if that. Some may not call the next day or the day after or ever. We can give out card 100 times and maybe five will call. But if they do, we’ve made a difference,” he added.

Another component of the operation aims to educate hotels and the hospitality industry on how to spot sex-trafficking operations on their premises and report it — an approach that yielded the majority of leads at last year’s Super Bowl in Tampa, Florida, according to Dennis.

“Last year we put together 21 leads that we gave to law enforcement, most of them from business owners or hotel owners basically stating I believe I have a trafficker and his girls stay at my hotel,” he said.

“They’d see a lot of traffic coming and going, or girls standing out on corners.,” Dennis added. “Those are all obvious signs, but good on them for actually reporting it.”

The epidemic of underage sex trafficking isn’t contained to Super Bowl weekend. An estimated 100,000 girls in the United States are under the control of a pimp or trafficker, according to Shared Hope Intermational, a nonprofit that works to combat worldwide sex trafficking.

It’s a reality that groups like KlaasKIDS, StandUp For Kids and Kristi House encounter daily, Ameen said.

“The common perception is that the girls enjoy it, they make money, they’re independent or they do it by choice. But when you work with young people selling their bodies, it’s not a choice. It’s a way to survive,” he said.

“I don’t want the idea to go away when Super Bowl ends. The reality is that it’s more concentrated on Super Bowl weekend, but they’re still out there come Monday morning.”

Arrests made in ring that sold human fat, Peru says

November 20, 2009 1:21 p.m. EST

(CNN) — Peruvian authorities say they have arrested four members of a gang that specialized in selling fat obtained from dead humans.

Officials are investigating the disappearance of at least 60 people who may have been killed by gang members in two mountainous states in central Peru, the nation’s attorney general said in a release Wednesday.

The four suspects have been charged with murder.

Two of the suspects were arrested November 3 as they left a transport business with a plastic container with human fat in it.

The fat was sold in Peru and Europe and used for commercial purposes, Peruvian officials said.

signs of the end of the world: the wrong philly phever

Woman arrested for trying to trade sex for World Series tickets

By KITTY CAPARELLA

caparek@phillynews.com

So what would you trade for a coupla World Series tickets?

Several hundred bucks? Your dog? Your first-born?

How about creative serial sex?

Step right up, Susan Finkelstein, 43, a rabid fan who really loves her Phillies.

Married with children, current Penn grad student in liberal arts and onetime assistant PR director at the University of Pennsylvania, she posted an ad on Craigslist.com: “DESPERATE BLONDE NEEDS WS TIX (Philadelphia)

“Diehard Phillies fan – gorgeous tall buxom blonde – in desperate need of two World Series Tickets. Price negotiable – I’m the creative type! Maybe we can help each other!”

Bensalem police were scouring Craigslist looking for illegal activities, like pornography, drug deals and child molesters, when they saw the ad from “Desperate.”

Posing as a ticketholder, an undercover cop called Finkelstein in Philadelphia and asked if they could meet in a Bensalem bar Monday night.

At the bar, Finkelstein was willing to engage in various sexual acts in return for a ticket, said Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran.

Then, she asked if the ticketholder had two tickets, and he claimed he did and she was willing to up the sexcapades, according to Harran.

After all, she posted on Facebook that she was “very, very liberal.”

“She was overcome with Phillies fever,” said her attorney William J. Brennan.

Well, Finkelstein got herself a ticket, but not for the World Series.

She will be receiving a summons via mail at her home on St. Barnards Place near Springfield Avenue in Southwest Philadelphia to appear in Bensalem court on charges of soliciting prostitution and related misdemeanors. No court date is set.

No one answered Daily News calls to her home.

So how long did this sweettalking last?

“It was quick,” said Harran. “About as long as it takes Chase Utley to throw somebody out at second base.”

And what did the ticketholder look like?

“Probably a cute guy if I was a woman,” replied Harran.

But when the cute cop clamped handcuffs on Finkelstein, Harran said, “I guess she realized she’s not going to the World Series.”

Her Facebook comment after the arrest: “Susan Finkelstein is wondering about the integrity of the police.”

signs of the end of the world: olympic brothel spirit!

what kind of olympic spirit is this???

Olympic hopeful opens brothel to pay for training

(CNN) — A cash-strapped Olympic hopeful in New Zealand says he has been forced to open a brothel to fund his bid for taekwondo glory in 2012, but officials say his entry into the sex trade could mean his exit from international sport.

Logan Campbell, who represented his country in Beijing last year, says without the financial injection from his “gentlemen’s club” he will be unable to continue his intensive training for the London Games.

“There is no point me going to the Olympics to make up the numbers if I go I want to be a medal contender,” Campbell told the local TVNZ network.

The 23-year-old, who finished in the top 16 in Beijing after losing his first match, says he needs to raise $190,000 over the next two years.

But his brothel business has upset his sport’s national governing body, which says it could hurt his chances of competing.

“It may be unlikely that he will be selected because of his involvement,” Taekwondo New Zealand’s Secretary General Matt Ransom said.

Campbell insists he should be entitled to compete as his Auckland business does not violate New Zealand liberal laws on prostitution.

“This is perfectly legal, so I do not see why I would wreck my chances,” he said, adding that if people had other ideas how to raise the cash, he would be willing to consider them
