Bacolod City: Cybersex Hotspot?

Remember this story I did back in May about a 62-year-old geezer that was filming his own sex videos and posting them online? The American expat was living in Bacolod City, “The City of Smiles,” at the time and was arrested. With the American’s arrest and the recent raids on alleged cybersex dens in Bacolod the past few months, one has to wonder if this post’s topic, “Bacolod City: Cybersex Hotspot?” might not be appropriate.

Bacolod City: Place of Interest for PNP

Superintendent Maria Shiela Portento might think the title of this post fitting. Portento is the top dog for the Philippine National Police, PNP, Women and Children Protection Center-Operation Management Division. The center is based in Camp Crame, the National Headquarters of the PNP, located in Manila.

The chief recently stated Bacolod City is considered as a “place of interest” when it comes to cybersex rackets.

Bacolod Mother Uses Her Minor Daughter in Cybersex Den

Case in point: On May 5, 2017, a mother was arrested at her home by Bacolod law enforcement officials.

The mother allegedly used her minor daughter in taping lewd videos and photos that were being sold online.

The raid was conducted following the recovery of sex videos and photos of the minor from the laptop of a foreign national. The foreigner was recently nabbed in the United States.

Authorities who arrested the American coordinated with the aforementioned Women and Children Protection Desk in Camp Crame. When the files were reviewed, it turned out that the videos were taped in Bacolod City.

The videos and photos of the minor were sold online in a website managed by the minor daughter’s mother. The mostly foreign clientele were paying through credit cards.

Another Bacolod City Cybersex Den Raided: Seven Minors Rescued

Senior Supt. Jack Wanky, Bacolod City Police Office (BCPO) acting director, said they continue to hunt for alleged cybersex dens in Bacolod City. A recent cybersex raid in Bacolod City rescued seven minors on July 13, 2017.

The PNP Women and Children Protection Center-Visayas Field Unit based in Cebu City rescued a 2-year old boy and six other minors.

Wanky told The Daily Guardian there could be more cybersex dens in the city.

“We are strictly monitoring this and we are on the lookout for these,” he said.

Mother Used Her Two Children, Ages 2 & 5 in Cybersex Shows

Out of the seven minors rescued, six were females. and a boy, two of whom were the suspect’s own children.

The 35-year old suspect allegedly used her two children, aged two and five years old, in cyber sex shows.

Children Forced to do Live Sex Acts on the Internet

The suspect was caught offering her daughter to do live sexual acts via the Internet.

The mother also enticed her two nieces, aged 17 and 22 years old, and two other female neighbors ages 5, 14, and 16 to do the live sex shows.

Wanky said the suspect offered live sex shows for fees ranging from P1,000 to P25,000.

Foreign customers paid the suspect through money remittance.

Cyber Crime Unit in Bacolod City Planned

Chief Supt. Edmund Gonzales, PNP regional director in Negros Island Region (NIR), is planning to create a cyber crime unit because of the proliferation of cybersex dens in Bacolod City.

Gonzales said he will send a request to the PNP headquarters in Camp Crame, Metro Manila to form a cyber crime unit in NIR.

He explained that the PNP’s cyber crime division can extend its duties outside Metro Manila and even abroad via the International Police Organization or INTERPOL.

He said he will request Camp Crame to send cops with expertise in stopping cyber crimes in NIR although he cautioned that the unit is short in manpower.

Bacolod City Mayor Pissed at Cybersex Den Hotspot Tag

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia is pissed. Understandably, being the mayor of a city reputed to be a cybersex den hotspot doesn’t look too good on your portfolio. Imagine walking up to the Pearly Gates as Saint Peter peruses your file.

“Hmmmm. I see your city, Bacolod, was tagged as a cybersex hotspot when you were mayor,” Saint Peter remarks to Leonardia.

Will the mayor react as he did in a statement to the press?

“This [Bacolod] is a big city, we are 572,000 people and if two or three had violated and if this is the ancient time where cyber matter are so prevalent, then I would say that would make us a hotspot.”

The mayor goes on to say “ but there were only two (cybersex dens.)” (Yeah, mayor, and OJ only killed two people, right?)

I’m betting Saint Peter won’t be buying it. Look, Peter might have denied Jesus three times before the cock crowed, but he’s been around the block a few times since then.

The Bacolod City mayor also finds it surprising why some parents are the ones involving their children in such illegal activity.

C’mon? Really, mayor? It’s all about the money. There some people so depraved, so evil, they will do absolutely anything for a little extra cash.

Personally, the mothers in this story that have allegedly used their own children in cybersex dens should really not worry about Saint Peter too much. They’re not even going to get an invite to the entrance of the Pearly Gates.

It’s going to be a hell of lot warmer where they’re headed.
