Unfortunately, this is becoming all too routine. Pretty soon I’ll have a standard template for these stories and will only have to insert the names and locations.
Anyway in Lubbock, Texas police have arrested 37-year-old Bobby Childress and 24-year-old Savannah McGill for allegedly running a prostitution ring that involved teenagers. Since you’re reading this here you probably already know that police say they were using the Village Voice Media-owned backpage.com to do so.
The girl was a 16-year-old runaway when she first met Childress who supposedly made her call him ‘Daddy’. I never get any less disgusted when I type that.
The ring was discovered while police were conducting Backpage stings. The girl was being advertised on Backpage in suggestive photos and nude photos of her were found on McGill’s computer. When police raided McGill’s place the girl was found in a closet. Whether she was hiding there on her own volition or was instructed to do so is unknown.
Apparently, the alleged millions that Village Voice Media is spending on the so-called reviewing of ads are going to waste since it’s not stopping child prostitution from happening on their sites. That is if they’re actually spending money for that purpose. I would bet it’s more like they’re spending money on lawyers to keep their asses out of court.
