railroad: Sunday Night's Matt Doran goes undercover with Operation Underground Railroad to bring down Haiti child sex ring JULY 23, 2017 4:03PM Swipe left... We need to protect children from evil men! If I was in charge they would be disposed of, not go to jail! On a luxury yacht in the Caribbean, a group of men are waiting for their party guests to arrive - dozens of girls, some as young as 10 years old, who have been sold to the group by human traffickers. But there won't be a party. The men onboard the yacht, posing as pedophiles from the US and Australia, are actually undercover agents who have been planning a dangerous rescue operation for more than a year. In a major Sunday Night investigation, reporter Matt Doran joined the team from global child rescue agency OperationUndergroundRailroad (OUR) as the sting took place on the yacht and in a nearby luxury resort. Among those undercover are two Australians: Pete, a paramedic, and Vivienne, a former detective. While Vivienne's job in the operation is to look after the girls as a 'groomer', Pete's role is more hands-on. "Part of it is a disgusting part and that's being one of the pedophiles, and I'm there to party, be one of the party goers and actually pretend that I want to have sex with one of these girls," Pete said. "My other part of the Haiti job is that I'm a medical expert, and part of that is overseeing everyone in the team and making sure that all their health and safety is looked after." On the day of the operation, the traffickers arrive at the resort accompanied by more than 30 girls. As the children are ushered into a room with Vivienne, the criminals make their way out to the yacht, where hidden cameras have been set up to record conversations that will be used as evidence against the traffickers. The men are filmed laughing and celebrating as they boast about the ages of the children. With clear admissions on tape, the final phase of the sting is to get the traffickers back to the resort to collect their money. "The boss doesn't give money on the boat - the money's in the house," one of agents tells them. As soon as the cash is handed over, a signal is given and local police storm the room with their guns drawn. At least 8 mid- to high-level traffickers were arrested and 30 children rescued. chakabars

Swipe left... We need to protect children from evil men! If I was in charge they would be disposed of, not go to jail! On a luxury yacht in the Caribbean, a group of men are waiting for their party guests to arrive - dozens of girls, some as young as 10 years old, who have been sold to the group by human traffickers. But there won't be a party. The men onboard the yacht, posing as pedophiles from the US and Australia, are actually undercover agents who have been planning a dangerous rescue operation for more than a year.

railroad: SUCCESSDIARIES YOU'RE NEVER TOO OLD TO BECOME WHAT YOU COULD HAVE BEEN If you feel like you're too old to achieve your dreams or feel like your time has past, this post is for you. The other night I was reading the incredible life story of Colonel Sanders. If you're struggling with failure or feel you are too old to accomplish your dreams, you need to read this below... - At age 5 his father died. - His step-father and him had a bad relationship. - In seventh grade he dropped out of school. - At age 13 he left home. - By the age of 17 he had already lost 4 jobs. - He got married when he was 18 and had a son who died from infected tonsils. - Later his wife left him since he couldn't keep a job. - He joined the army, but was discharged 4 months later. - He was a railroad conductor, but got fired. - He applied for law school and got rejected. - He became a fireman and later got fired. - He became a lawyer, but lost his license after a courtroom brawl. - He became an insurance agent and again got fired. - At the age of 65 he retired his life up until this point was nothing but failure. - He decided to commit suicide, but he again failed. - One day he decided to write out a will, but instead of writing what he would pass on when he died he wrote down what he would accomplish with his life. - During the Great Depression he began serving chicken dishes out of his living quarters it became such a big hit that he opened a restaurant. - With his recipe he went door to door selling his chicken. He gained so much popularity that he was commissioned as Kentucky Colonel. - Later, he acquired a motel that he attached a restaurant to. That was burnt down by a fire shortly after. - He went back to work on his chicken recipe and got a job cooking - He later started the franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken and built his empire. - The story of Colonel Sanders is a powerful one of perseverance. No matter how many times you fail in life. No matter how old you become. You can always do what you have dreamed of. - Think if he would have given up after any of his failures. Think if he would of actually committed suicide. Think if at age 65 he stayed retired and just coasted until death. Never ever ever give up!!!
