RENTBOY.COM: Largest Online Male Escort Service Raided and LGBT Mafia Whines Over Loss

EDITORIAL: The LGBT and pro-pimps Amnesty are already throwing fits about shutting down the illegal prostitution website, RentBoy.com. It’s a pimping site, plain and simple. Pimping is still illegal and it’s high time our government agencies get involved in tackling the sale of human beings for commercial sexual exploitation. Media is corrupt in their reporting that agents should go after sex traffickers instead of these pimps. We ALL know they are one and the same. The pimp’s entire livelihood depends on sexually exploiting their victims. Our media is mostly owned and controlled by foreign influences. They want nothing more than for our country to fail and our daughters to become sex slaves to the World.<

My main concern with this raid is whether we are being set up to throw this issue instantly into the forefront of mainstream media headlines and shoved through our court systems to get the sex industries pimps legalized before Obama leaves the White House. With two teenage daughters, he doesn’t dare publicly support the decriminalization of pimps and buyers of humans. But is he working behind the scene to help these criminals have free access to our daughters? He has been for the past 7 years. We know he’s done NOTHING to stop pimps from growing into these mammoth publicly known illegal organized crime businesses. We watch as they steal our daughters souls!

Yes. I’m surprised about the raid too. Only difference is . . . It’s a great thing. Stop  your whining, pimps. Evil will not win and you’re looking like a bunch of sore losers. We’re going to shut you all down. It’s just a matter of time. TICK TOCK!

Rentboy.com CEO and Six Current and Former Employees Arrested

A criminal complaint was unsealed today in federal court in Brooklyn charging the CEO of Rentboy.com, Jeffrey Hurant, and six Rentboy.com employees with conspiring to violate the Travel Act by promoting prostitution.  The defendants were arrested this morning and are scheduled to appear before United States Magistrate Judge Marilyn Go at the United States Courthouse, 225 Cadman Plaza East, Brooklyn, New York.

The charges were announced by Kelly T. Currie, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York; Glenn Sorge, Acting Special Agent in Charge, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), New York; and William J. Bratton, Commissioner, New York City Police Department.

As alleged in the complaint, Rentboy.com is a male escort advertising site  founded in 1997 which hosts thousands of paid advertisements.  While the site has disclaimers stating that the advertisements are for companionship and not sexual services, Rentboy.com is designed primarily for advertising illegal prostitution.  The website charges subscribers a  minimum monthly fee of $59.95 and up to several hundred dollars to advertise sexual services.  Once the fee is paid, subscribers can select from a number of categories created by Rentboy.com the sexual services they are willing to perform and the price charged.  Subscribers can also include their physical descriptions and provide links to another website where their sexual services are rated by prior customers.  Between 2010 and 2015, Rentboy.com had over $10 million in gross proceeds.

“As alleged, Rentboy.com attempted to present a veneer of legality, when in fact this internet brothel made millions of dollars from the promotion of illegal prostitution,” stated Acting United States Attorney Currie.  Mr. Currie thanked the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Field Office in New York for their assistance in the investigation.

HSI Acting Special Agent in Charge Sorge stated, “The facilitation and promotion of prostitution offenses across state lines and international borders is a federal crime made even more egregious when it’s blatantly advertised by a global criminal enterprise,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Sorge of HSI New York.  “HSI will use its unique authorities to disrupt and dismantle such organizations and seize the millions of dollars in illegal proceeds they generate.”

“As alleged, Rentboy.com profited from the promotion of prostitution despite their claim that their advertisements were not for sexual services.  Thanks to the detectives, agents, and prosecutors of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District involved in this investigation, these individuals will be held accountable for running this racket,” said Police Commissioner Bratton.

In addition, earlier today the government served warrants authorizing the seizure of over $1.4 million of alleged criminal proceeds from six bank accounts.  The government also took steps to restrain the domain name www.rentboy.com.

The charges in the complaint are merely allegations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.  If convicted each defendant faces up to five years imprisonment and a fine of up to $250,000.

The government’s case is being prosecuted by the Office’s International Narcotics and Money Laundering Section.  Assistant United States Attorneys Tyler Smith and Melanie Hendry are in charge of the prosecution.

Gay activists fume over de Blasio’s role in rentboy.com raid

Gay activists fume over de Blasio’s role in rentboy.com raid

Gay activists are furious over the rentboy.com raid and arrests for prostitution — and they are wondering whyMayor de Blasio and Police Commissioner William Bratton worked with the federal prosecutors in Brooklyn.

Both the mayor and Bratton march in the very same gay pride parade in which rentboy.com has a float. “Koch, Giuliani and Bloomberg didn’t go after rentboy.com. Why is de Blasio?” wondered one gay man who has used the service.

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. had his name taken off the press release on the bust because he had nothing to do with it.

Meanwhile, police have recently been ticketing men in the gay cruising area of Prospect Park.

Quipped one activist, “The LGBT community hasn’t seen such harassment and intimidation since before Stonewall in 1969. This has become a City Hall war against gay consensual sex. Some wonder whether this is happening to rid the city of ‘gay sin’ prior to the arrival of de Blasio’s friend, the Pope.”
