HNewsWire- StevieRay Hansen Commentary:Cyntoia Brown, a sex trafficking victim who had been serving a life sentence for the murder of a man who paid to have sex with her when she was 16.This story is all too common of children being exploited for sexual gratification.
Brown was born Cyntoia Denise Mitchell to Georgina Mitchell in Tennessee on January 29, 1988.Her father is unknown. Mitchell drank alcohol during her pregnancy, which Brown’s defense attorneys would later claim to have caused her to have been born with fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, and, after Brown was born, Mitchell began to use crack cocaine. Unable to care for her infant daughter, Georgina ultimately placed the child up for adoption with Ellenette Brown, also known as Ellenette Washington. Though Washington tried to provide a stable home for Cyntoia in 2004, the latter, then 16-years-old, ran away from home and began associating with a man named Garion McGlothen, Jarvis also known by his street name Kut-Throat or simply Kut, who would become her pimp and force her into sex-trafficking. Homeless, the two took up residence at an InTown Suites, with Brown supporting the two of them through involuntary prostitution. During this time, McGlothen reportedly threatened, beat, and raped Brown on multiple occasions
This story appears to be one of a poor black girl in Tennessee that was Known child of sex trafficking, yet the state prosecuted her for killing a man who at the age of 16 was being forced to have sex with older man.
Who should’ve ended up in prison in this situation, the Pimp, the perverted customers looking for sex with children, no the child landed in prison, in a world where bad is good and good is bad these type of stories are becoming commonplace in society. We live in an evil world dress appropriately, only God can change these types of horror stories.
Another travesty of justice, a young girl forced into the sex trafficking trade for profit ends up in prison because she’s an easy mark for a prosecutor.
Brown’s case has been championed for years by advocates of trafficking victims, as well as by celebrities including Kim Kardashian West and Rihanna.
In 2004, when Brown was 16, a 43-year-old real estate agent named Johnny Allen picked Brown up at a Sonic Drive-In after agreeing to pay her $150 for a sex act and took her to his home in Nashville. According to Brown, at one point in their encounter she believed Allen was reaching for a gun under his bed, and she feared for her life. After he fell asleep, she shot him with a handgun from her purse, took money and two guns from him, and fled in his truck.
While Brown’s advocates have maintained that she, as a victim of abuse and forced prostitution, was acting largely in self-defense and took the money because she was afraid of returning without money to her pimp—a man who repeatedly raped her and forced her into prostitution when she ran away from her adoptive family—prosecutors argued that she killed Allen to rob him. Brown was tried as an adult, and a jury convicted her of first-degree murder and robbery in 2006. She was sentenced to life in prison with the possibility of parole after 51 years.
In 2011, a PBS documentary revived national interest in Brown’s case, and while her lawyers worked to get her a new trial, activists cited her case as an example of the need for criminal justice reform. In 2017, Rihanna posted about Brown on Instagram, further centering Brown’s case in the debate about the juvenile criminal justice system. Other celebrities such as comedian Amy Schumer, basketball star LeBron James, and actress Ashley Judd joined in calling for clemency.
“Cyntoia Brown committed, by her own admission, a horrific crime at the age of 16,” Haslam, who leaves office later in January, said in his statement. “Yet, imposing a life sentence on a juvenile that would require her to serve at least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is too harsh, especially in light of the extraordinary steps Ms. Brown has taken to rebuild her life. Transformation should be accompanied by hope.”
Brown, who has earned a GED certificate and an associate degree in prison, thanked the governor and her supporters in a statement Monday. “I will do everything I can to justify your faith in me,” she said.
Brown will be eligible for release on Aug. 7 and will remain on parole for 10 years.
HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”; and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.
In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as a “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense, since sexual orientation has to do with gender not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings! Psychiatry, it should also be noted, has a history of inventing fictitious diseases such as ADHD (as admitted by its inventor on his deathbed by Leon Eisenberg).
