Black Lives Matter leader Charles Wade charged with sex trafficking

Again we see another outstanding citizen “helping” those in his community. It’s funny how these type of activists get invited to White House dinners and red carpet events and activists on the right side of the spectrum tend to get cruel and unusual treatment.

Charles Wade, a prominent Black Lives Matter organizer and co-founder of Operation Help or Hush, was arrested last month and charged with human trafficking and prostitution.

Mr. Wade was arrested at a Howard Johnson Inn in College Park, Maryland, on April 25. Police said he was residing in a motel room where he allegedly pimped a 17-year-old girl, The Daily Caller reported Thursday.

Mr. Wade was held on seven counts relating to felony human trafficking and prostitution. He was bailed out shortly after his arrest, according to a statement he released on Twitter Wednesday.

He was arrested as part of a sting operation in which an undercover officer responded to an ad Mr. Wade allegedly placed for a 23-year-old woman on backpage.com, a website frequently used by sex traffickers and prostitutes, The Daily Caller reported.

Investigators said the woman, who turned out to be a 17-year-old girl, called Mr. Wade her manager. She said he knew she was a minor but wasn’t worried because of her upcoming birthday. She also told investigators that she provided all the money she earned to Mr. Wade, The Daily Caller reported.

Mr. Wade told The Daily Caller that he was unfairly arrested because he was “too trusting” of a female tenant whom he was temporarily housing as part of his Operation Help or Hush charity.

Mr. Wade said she told him she was 20 years old. He said he was arrested because he signed for, provided identification for, and paid for the room, but said she acted alone in conducting illegal business there. He said she was also arrested for solicitation and prostitution.

“Her family said she has a history of running away and doing this. I didn’t know. I am not pimp. Never have been,” Mr. Wadetweeted Wednesday.

His statement posted on Twitter blamed conservative “trolls” for attempting to smear him with the story of his arrest.

“For the past two to three days, ‘trolls’ have been actively baiting conservative news outlets to report on my arrest, amongst other vindictive things that they are actively working on,” he wrote. “I am confident that I will be cleared of the charges I am currently facing.”

Mr. Wade’s nonprofit was created during the Ferguson, Missouri, unrest in 2014. Last September, he began crowdsourcing a center for children and youth near Ferguson and Dellwood, a local Fox News affiliate reported.

Last year he was listed as No. 40 on The Root’s 100 most influential black activists.

He was also invited Tuesday by the White House to a movie screening with other Black Lives Matter activists. He said he did not attend, The Daily Caller reported.

  1. “I am confident that I will be cleared of the charges I am currently facing.”

    Where have I heard that before?

  2. “I am confident that I will be cleared of all charges I am currently facing.”
    We have heard that from every corrupt politician that has been charged or suspected with a crime and walked away!

  3. Anyone who doesn’t take this domestic terrorist organization (Black Lives Matter) seriously does so at their risk. It has the ears of government at all levels and commands some radicals that have been linked to law enforcement officer murders. Many in this organization have openly called for the murder of white people and cops and many in the Obama administration have lent an air of legitimacy to this extremist group. We would be wise to keep an eye on this consortium of cowards and be ready to defend ourselves, families, property and communities against what could be acts of violence against white interests across the country. Plan for the worst and hope for the best! The assault on white America has only just begun and I fear it will get much worse before it gets better. It may take a concerted militia effort to bring sanity back to this country. Lets hope not!

  4. Considering my trust in the media, and others potentially involved, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out that this was fabricated to smear him. I read nothing that would be anything more than circumstantial. There could be facts that haven’t been released or aren’t included in this article but from what I read they got nothing.

  5. So if he is in fact innocent can he report and prove his source of income that buys the room , food, liiving exspenses ?
