PEDOGATE: Trump administration moves on child sex trafficking ring; 160 children rescued, say authorities

Atlanta, GA — A sting on the sex-trafficking trade in the metro Atlanta area netted dozens of arrests and led to the rescue of approximately 160 children who had been forced to work as sex slaves, the FBI announced this week.

The sting, known as Operation Safe Summer, had been ordered by the Trump administration as part of its ongoing war against child sex trafficking.

Approximately 150 arrests were made in accordance with the bust and the children, some as young as 3-years-old, were taken into protective custody.

“They are crimes of special concern to the FBI and to law enforcement generally,” assistant Special Agent in Charge Matt Alcoke told WSB-TV’s Mike Petchenik. “Because the victims are so vulnerable as children and because the offenders could be from just about any walk of life, from a gang member all the way up to someone who is highly successful and wealthy.”

Alcoke said the operation was timed to interfere with a trade that preys on children during summer months.

“It’s important for those of us who are responsible for the children, the parents, the guardians, the older siblings, to not let children fall away (from) those strongly centered circles of importance,” Alcoke said.

Among those charged is Trevey Parks, a child predator Alcoke said is among one of the worst he’d ever seen.

“Trevey Parks is one of the worst of the worst,” Alcoke said. “He was ultimately arrested in a joint effort by us and the local police.

The arrests in the metro-Atlanta area encompassed a 6 county area, many of which include rural and upscale areas.

“A lot of people don’t realize these things happen here,” department Alpharetta Police Department spokesman Howard Miller said.

The latest sting on human trafficking is part of President Trump’s ongoing agenda to crackdown on child sex trafficking, which he has mandated as a priority in his administration. The effort has resulted in thousands of arrests nationwide, mostly unreported by the mainstream media.



‘HE JUST SNAPPED’: Teacher taken into custody after allegedly opening fire in Georgia school

DALTON, GA — A teacher was taken into custody Wednesday after police say he opened fire inside a north Georgia school.

Dalton, Georgia police said a teacher, identified as Randal Davidson, was arrested without incident after initially barricading himself inside a classroom at Dalton High School, a public school located about 90 miles northwest of Atlanta.

Police were called to the school after a witness said Davidson fired at least one shot then locked himself inside the classroom.

According to a report published by local affiliate WSB-TV (, the school was immediately placed on lockdown.

One student was injured while attempting to flee the school, the Dalton Police Department tweeted, but no other students or faculty members were reported injured in the incident.

No one knows what triggered Wednesday’s incident, but witnesses say they are shocked by the events.

“I don’t know what happened. He just snapped, that’s all I can think,” said one woman who did not want her name revealed. “It’s so scary. You just never think something like this could happen here.”

Parents were instructed to pick up their children at the nearby Northwest Georgia Trade Center.

Police have identified the weapon used in the incident as a handgun.

The shooting follows an incident on February 14 in Parkland, Florida where 17 students were killed in a mass shooting. The alleged shooter in that incident was also taken into custody.

The Parkland school shooting triggered a raging debate between gun rights proponents and gun control advocates over the need for stricter gun laws.
