OPINION AND EDITORIAL
Half-hearted attempts at combating human trafficking and child rape extortion are generally perceived as a sign of a guilty conscience by many members of the public. This is the apparent reason questions now orbit Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito after a nonchalant appearance at this week’s Human Trafficking Summit in Cape Code. Ms. Polito seems to illustrate the care-free foot-dragging government bureaucrat.

HYANNIS – Attorney General Maura Healey hosted the office’s first Human Trafficking Summit recently and many Cape Cod agencies and organizations participated in the event.
The summit, held during Human Trafficking Prevention Month, brought together more than 200 law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and victim advocates who investigate and prosecute human trafficking cases, along with direct service providers from organizations across the state.
Lt. Governor Karyn Polito spoke on the second day of the summit.
Polito serves as the Chair of the Governor’s Council to Address Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence and has successfully worked to support effective implementation of key provisions of Chapter 260: “An Act Relative to Domestic Violence”, including the expansion of protections for victims of human trafficking.
Through the Council, in 2016, Polito announced new polices to target human trafficking, which included the formation of a High-Risk Victims Unit within the Massachusetts State Police, and improve inter-agency coordination and communication between the State Police and the Department of Children and Families.

Meanwhile, Corpus Christi, Texas investigative journalist Denise Matteau is a life-long resident of Massachusetts and has doubts about the clean-up of human trafficking. Matteau believes many high-ranking state government officials are protecting a child rape and pedophile network operating in Berkshire County (Western Massachusetts).
Several licensed social workers as well as fake non-credentialed ones, including Lorene Burke Zeif and one Rose Constapoulos have been involved. Zeif is Renee Burke’s daughter and left Catholic Charities in Berkshire County in the 1980’s after being found allowing her mother to use her credentials to access information about my family. Loree later converted to Judaism and used her new Jewish identity to continue the attacks while we lived in Great Barrington, where she instigated several mob-style assaults on my daughter by accusing us of “anti-semitism” and that is when Rick Ross Institute was included in the attacks. Our neighbors all along the road at June Mountain were contacted by these “anti-cult” “experts’ and it was years before I found out the truth. The Rick Ross people were all over Berkshire County attacking anyone who challenged the corrupt rings there.

Matteau apparently claims that the human trafficking of Berkshire County can be traced to the LENOX 7, seven high school students in Lenox High School that “murdered” two students from a rival high school. Matteau if the aunt of “J.K.”, “Jody“, one of the teenagers charged in the murder plot.
