Prostitution. The child’s Hell in Tijuana
In the alleys on of the Zona Norte, in Tijuana, Baja California, there are not just Americans, but they are the basic business source. Many billboards are in English and as one walks, the cantina security guards call to you with loud cries of “beer and girl.” The locals have neatly perfected their accents.
Somebody is constantly appearing to ask you where you are from, and what do you want. They offer powdered crafts brought from China in 1980, and the typical photo while mounted on a burro with prominent ribs painted as a zebra. Other times, into your ear, they offer a child, very young.
Carlos is 17 years old, and a veteran according to the logic of the pedophile, who says the business deals in Tijuana are sealed with a handshake in downtown internet cafes in this border city.
The children wait to play Candy Crush on a computer, until a greasy 50-something appears, with a double chin and big belly. Although the belief exists that a child costs more, the standard fee is between $20 and $50 dollars for all night.
For Carlos, the Veteran, he was retired this year. After being prostituted for seven years, he was allowed to leave the business. There is no market for a boy who recently contracted HIV.
Tijuana is the destination for sexual tourists, a couple of weeks ago, Joel Wright, a seminary student from Ohio, who had contracted a “tourist guide” who was to have three babies ready in Tijuana so he could abuse them, was arrested by United States authorities at the San Diego airport.
According to the complaint, to which El Universal had access, the Catholic seminary student published an announcement on Craigslist, an internet classified ad site. He asked for the services of a tourist guide for Tijuana.
Upon making contact with some, the confessed to them his desires to have sex with little girls. It was at that time that some of the guides contacted American authorities. Agents from Homeland Security infiltrated and exchanged mails with the seminary student.
Joel Wright has a fat face, sunken eyes and prominent ears. His glasses are like coke bottle bottoms, his shirts were pastel and the priest’s robe he wore in his photographs made him look even scarier.
“I planned to do everything when I visited Tijuana, it would be great having sex with a 1-year old and another 4-year old,” according to the court documents, in which the seminary student exchanged more emails, with details that turn anyone’s stomach.
