U.S. Marshals Just Saved 39 Children in Operation Not Forgotten

This of course is being completely ignored by the national news media, so I’ll do my small  part here. The U.S. Marshal’s Service, at a joint press conference with officials from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, announced today that 39 children had been rescued from sex traffickers in the Atlanta, Georgia area in recent weeks.

Evil does indeed exist, and one of the main ways it manifests itself in the world today is in the realm of human-and-sex-trafficking. This is a problem that the Obama Department of Justice essentially ignored for 8 longs years, but which the Trump DOJ under both Jeff Sessions and William Barr has aggressively pursued to their great credit.

Here is the press release issued by the Marshals Service today:

U.S. Marshals Find 39 Missing Children in Georgia During ‘Operation Not Forgotten’

Investigators charge individuals for sex offender violations, other related charges

Washington, DC – The U.S. Marshals Service Missing Child Unit, in conjunction with the agency’s Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) and Georgia state and local agencies, led a two-week operation in August in Atlanta and Macon, Georgia, to rescue endangered missing children.

“Operation Not Forgotten” resulted in the rescue of 26 children, the safe location of 13 children and the arrest of nine criminal associates. Additionally, investigators cleared 26 arrest warrants and filed additional charges for alleged crimes related to sex trafficking, parental kidnapping, registered sex offender violations, drugs and weapons possession, and custodial interference. The 26 warrants cleared included 19 arrest warrants for a total of nine individuals arrested, some of whom had multiple warrants.

“The U.S. Marshals Service is fully committed to assisting federal, state, and local agencies with locating and recovering endangered missing children, in addition to their primary fugitive apprehension mission,” said Director of the Marshals Service Donald Washington. “The message to missing children and their families is that we will never stop looking for you.”

These missing children were considered to be some of the most at-risk and challenging recovery cases in the area, based on indications of high-risk factors such as victimization of child sex trafficking, child exploitation, sexual abuse, physical abuse, and medical or mental health conditions. Other children were located at the request of law enforcement to ensure their wellbeing. USMS investigators were able to confirm each child’s location in person and assure their safety and welfare.

The Justice for Victims of Trafficking Act of 2015 enhanced the U.S. Marshals’ authority to assist federal, state, and local law enforcement with the recovery of missing, endangered or abducted children,
regardless of whether a fugitive or sex offender was involved. The Marshals established a Missing Child Unit to oversee and manage the implementation of its enhanced authority under the act.

In 2019, the USMS helped recover 295 missing children based on requests for assistance from law enforcement and has contributed to the recovery of a missing child in 75 percent of cases received. Additionally, of the missing children recovered, 66 percent were recovered within seven days of the USMS assisting with the case. Since its partnership with NCMEC began in 2005, the agency has recovered more than 1,800 missing children.

“When we track down fugitives, it’s a good feeling to know that we’re putting the bad guy behind bars. But that sense of accomplishment is nothing compared to finding a missing child,” said Darby Kirby, Chief of the Missing Child Unit. “It’s hard to put into words what we feel when we rescue a missing child, but I can tell you that this operation has impacted every single one of us out here. We are working to protect them and get them the help they need.”

This initiative was the culmination of several months of planning and coordination between the USMS, NCMEC, Georgia Bureau of Investigation, Georgia Office of the Attorney General, Georgia Department of Family and Children Services, Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Just a reminder that these are the law enforcement officials that Black Lives Matter, Antifa and the communist Democrats want to defund.

If they’re defunded, who will save our children?

That is all.

    Good thing the riots are happening outside of Georgia, so that resources are not being diluted. Thanks Dave, good news is always good.

  2. Gregg - August 27, 2020

    Great story Dave. Thanks for posting it.

    As a suggestion, since you are now putting out three or four articles a day.

    How about dedicating one article a day a or a couple a week (titled good news) to highlight all the behind the scenes good that the Trump Administration is doing that the MSN (D) is NOT reporting.

    I follow this stuff pretty regularly and until I listened to some of the “little people” who have positively been impacted by the president’s and his administration’s actions speaking at the convention, I knew very little about their cases/situations.

    In an era of everything sucks and in this most difficult year, it is heartening to hear some of the good that is happening from time to time.

    It sure would be a nice contrast to hearing the daily crap coming from MaligNancy Klink and others mouth’s.

    Hearing good positive stories of government actually doing something good and right would be a great elixir for positive thoughts which we all need from time to time, more so now than ever.

    Even though I and we here pick on and bitch about government corruption and incompetence often, I know and do believe there are many good people working in government at all levels on our behalf – we must not lose sight of that in all the muck and mire of the daily ‘news’.

    Hearing about good outcomes reminds me of a couple of happy songs from the seventies and the eighties: “Stop and Smell the Roses” by Mac Davis, and “We Sure Could Use a Little Good News These Days” by Anne Murray – timeless classics, which I am going to start listening to again.

    Again Thank You for all you do here Dave.

    Agree with Gregg.

    On child trafficking: it’s a happy day to see pervs put in jail for possessing CP, but there must be more severe charges for those who produce it (i.e. child sex traffickers.) The death penalty sounds about right.

    Watch and wait (but don’t wait) for Hollyweird and the Left and the MSM continue to try to normalize this behavior. We must push back.

    As someone who was molested by a physician in my early teens – and having it profoundly affect my life – I have no tolerance for these people. None. Whatsoever.

      I agree with both yourself and Gregg… Good news is always appreciated…

      I also agree Jimmy that there needs to be far harsher punishments for crimes against children. When these evil parasites prey on our children, we as a body should not/ cannot allow this to happen without a response.

      IMO… child crimes should be punished at the same level as first degree murder…
