Seattle backpage pimp and rapist busted

Joseph Anthony McDaniels

Woman escapes from violent pimp:

Charge: Rapist turned to pimping after prison:

42-year-old Joseph Anthony McDaniels is one nasty scumbag. Previously he did a 15 year stint in prison for raping a 16-year-old girl. The girl placed a classified ad selling a trumpet. McDaniels posed as an interested buyer, entered the girl’s home, raped her, robbed the house and then left her tied up with a towel in her mouth. So how did McDaniel’s rehabilitation go? Not too good apparently.

Instead of being a rapist he became a pimp…’allegedly’ Police say that he turned out two women on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com. One of the women kept trying to escape from McDaniels’ violent ways but every time she did he would beat her. Once he threatened the woman’s brother…

McDaniels “threatened the victim that if he ever went back to jail because of her, he would tie her and her brother to a tree in the woods and she would have to watch while he tortured and killed her brother,” Deputy Prosecutor Christopher Bell told the court. “After he killed her brother, he would torture her and she would have to beg for her life.”

Sex traffickers are notorious for keeping their ‘word’ on threats like this. He also threatened to shoot up the woman’s mother’s house.

Thankfully the woman saw her chance to escape. McDaniel made her go to the courthouse to vacate a restraining order against him, instead she begged the court for help. She told them that her life was in danger and told them all about McDaniel. Police were waiting for McDaniel when he came back to pick her up.

Not only does this show there is no rehabilitation for rapists but Backpage probably thinks his threats are protected as free speech like the blood money they make off the violence of these cowardly pimps.

Trafficker used craigslist to recruit women and backpage to sell them

Roshaun Nakia Porter

Long Beach Man Accused of Running Sex Trafficking Ring:

Long Beach man indicted for allegedly luring women on Craigslist and forcing them into sex trafficking:

Long Beach man allegedly forced women into prostitution in OC:

36-year-old Roshaun “Kevin” Nakia Porter of Long Beach, California was recently indicted on charges of sex trafficking. He’s accused of allegedly forcing several women into prostitution in the Orange County area.

Investigators say that Porter would meet these women on craigslit and a site that bills itself as being the #1 site to find a sugar daddy. The women say they thought they were becoming Porter’s girlfriend. Instead he put them to work on the streets. Just like every other cowardly pimp he threatened them or their families with violence.

Then to complete the circle of slavery he advertised them on the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com.

He was eventually arrested by the Santa Ana police.

Surprisingly he’s looking at life in prison which is what all sex traffickers deserve.

This story points out two things. The first is don’t meet guys on craigslist. They’re probably scummy in one way or another. The second is backpage will say that this is a free speech issue and it’s their constitutional right to make money from the ads where these women are sold against their will.
