Sex-slaver faces 25 years

By WILLIAM J. GORTA, NY Post

A Queens man who bought a woman for $2,000 and forced her to work as a prostitute is the first person to be convicted under New York's new sex-trafficking law, authorities said yesterday.

David Brown, 32, of St. Albans, paid an old girlfriend for the troubled 19-year-old woman and forced her into the sex trade in 2008, said Queens DA Richard Brown.

The woman was compelled to have sex with about 30 men over 12 days, charging between $60 and $200, which she gave to David Brown, according to the DA.

He faces up to 25 years in prison after being convicted Tuesday on charges including kidnapping and sex trafficking.

Nussbaum, you're next.

Good point, judge. I fail to see the difference between the Trib's whore ads and other forms of exploiting women in the various sex trades, including prostitution and porn. Some of the "Models of Queens" photos in the Schenkler/Nussbaum/Ackerman rag are inappropriate for a general audience. How do they get away with those ads and photos? It sets the paper apart from the other weeklies.

For the next 25 years in prison, this thing named David Brown must be traded around among all the Bubbas, every single day, all day long.

Taxpayers can save on laundry and clothing costs, since this creep will be naked at all times. And, he will be a bunk partner for whoever has him at the moment.

About time the slap on the wrist has ended. Good for him.

Man so there's probably going to be about 1,000 25 year sentences throw around in Flushing.

Check ANY of those Korea bars with the full black tinted fronts. All sex slave "establishments".

It's about time. Remember I posted about "White Slavery" a few weeks ago. This is exactly what they mean.

Now let's hope they go after everyone who does this to someone else, regardless of the age, ethnicity or race of the victim.

This is the tip of the iceberg.

Geee, George. What a fine and courageous thing that you've done in publishing the name of individual employees of the Queens Tribune (done with the shield of your pseudonym, of course. If you're going to print their names, print yours).

What are you going to say if these individuals get harassing phone calls...or worse? Go after Schenckler and Nussbaum, who deserve it, not them.

But why we're on the subject. Is the Tribune the only paper that prints ads like these?

Gary the Dope (that's what an "agnostic" is - one who has "no knowledge". Look it up)

These names are all publicly found on the masthead of the Tribune. Shenkler publishes them each week.

Gee, George. That's telling me off. Have I irked you in some way, you arrogant boob?

Your point is irrelevant, and you're targeting innocent people. Go after Schenkler, Nussbaum, and Ackerman. Lead a boycott of their advertisers. Stage a demonstration in front of the Tribune's building (then again, you'd have to appear in public to do that).

That's the smarter and more effective thing to do.

And by the way, what specific laws has the Tribune violated?

I don't doubt that they've violated good taste and community standards, but what specific laws of New York City and State have they violated? With your extensive knowledge of the law, you ought to know. But what would happen if someone brought them into court, and the Tribune's lawyers cited the First Amendment of the United States Constitution?

I assume that you've read that.

They're advertising prostitution.

That's illegal.

georgetheatheist said...

Don't you find it strange that 22 women on the Tribune's staff don't march into Shenkler and Nussbaum's offices and tell them to finally cut the crap with the prostitution ads? With this exploitation of women? This has been going on for years. There are more women on the Tribune's staff than men. Don't these 22 women have any "balls"? Just what the hell is going on there? With them?

primadonna said...

I'm gonna have to agree with Gary on this one. It's up to those in charge to cut the crap. The rest are probably happy just to have a job.
Sorry George.

I. M. Curious said...

I wonder how much income is derived from those sex ads? Also, are any of those "services" linked to other businesses that the Trib gang is associated with?

Then have someone take it to court, and prove that the law has been broken to a jury, and then win the appeals process. Until then, it isn't.

It's called earning a living, George (a strange concept to you, I'm sure, but that's what it is). No one's going to do anything without a lot of support.

And you think the DA and elected officials are going to crack down on their own political rag run by their mentor Gary Ackerman?

Boy, are you naive...

I'm a realist, which is why I'm saying what I'm saying. I know the way politics works.

Marcia Moxam Comrie is the wife of a well-paid NYC Councilman, Leroy Comrie. She does not work for wages at the Tribune. She is a prominent columnist at the Tribune's sister publication, the Press of Southeast Queens. She "mouths off" weekly on anything under the sun. Her silence on these prostitution ads is deafening. You hear that, Marcia?

Also, where are the other community newspapers on this issue of the Tribune's perfidy? Victoria Schnepps of the Courier, a few years ago, mentioned it once. And then she too fell silent.

Women in the Age of Liberation being afraid to speak out? Are you kidding me?

I tell you, there's more to this than meets the eye.

How are these women staffers at the Tribune any different from the whores in the classifieds? They all work for the money? Shenkler, Ackerman, and Nussbaum are their pimps.

georgetheatheist said...

"The rest are probably happy to just have a job."

You've seen their 1040's? The issue isn't monetary. It's self-esteem.

an investigative researcher said...

Because these Trib women "employees" are indentured wage slaves George....probably unable to land a job at a real newspaper.

So the abuse continues.

But let's not forget Congressman Ackerman who is the real whore master here!

Is he not connected to "Tribco"?

The Trib would go bust were it not for their whore ads....most of them catering to the Asian market.

Don't you get it? Nausporn and Shankin own the judges, the pols, the cops, everything it seems - except the irrepressible Queens Crap. Everyone has a price, George, what's yours?
