Fed-Up Truckers Have Finally Had Enough Of Human Traffickers, Now They’re Fighting Back
The unsung heroes of today are working men who show up, put food on the table for their families, and do the right thing every day. These men actually know how to get things done.

A coalition of truck drivers have decided to team up and take the fight to human trafficking scum. You won’t hear a peep from the fake news media about “toxic masculinity” when it comes to these blue-collar heroes. This is manliness at its finest. And it’s high time a group of heroic men finally get some respect from the lying mainstream media.

A few months ago, Sprowel said he got a late-night knock on his door while he was resting at a truck stop in Quartzsite, Arizona. A sickly looking young woman came up to his truck window and asked if he wanted any company. He said he pointed to the National Human Trafficking Hotline number on his truck and asked her, “Ma’am, is there something I can help you with? You see this number on the side of my truck? Do you need help?” She ended up running away, Sprowel said, but the red flags were enough for him to alert the authorities.

“I figured, ‘well, this ain’t right, there’s something going on here,’” Sprowel, 59, told NBC News.

Other truck drivers sometimes call him an everyday hero, in part because he drives a Kenworth rig known as the “Everyday Heroes” T680, but also because of his involvement with Truckers Against Trafficking (TAT).

The Colorado-based nonprofit trains truck drivers and various other members of the transportation industry to recognize human trafficking and alert authorities to potential victims. Since its creation in 2009, TAT says they have trained about 845,000 people in the transportation industry, over 700,000 of whom are truck drivers. That’s out of the total 3.5 million truck drivers who are employed in the U.S., according to the American Trucking Association.

“My heart goes out to these people,” Sprowel said. “If I see somebody in trouble, and it [doesn’t] look like they’re able to get out of the situation, I’m picking up the phone and making a phone call for them.” [NBC News]

The lying media doesn’t like to tell the public that most working men have a sense of duty, honor, chivalry, and empathy. But it’s true. The unsung heroes of today are not the butch “ladies” who want to usurp the role of men in the workforce, or the mentally ill men who believe they can “change genders.” The unsung heroes of today are working men who show up, put food on the table for their families, and do the right thing every day. These men actually know how to get things done. And it’s showing in the statistics.

It’s a call to action that seems to be working. “That curriculum is critical in advancing the anti-trafficking movement,” Caroline Diemar, director of the National Human Trafficking Hotline, said.

TAT said that, in the past decade, truckers have made more than 2,000 calls to the National Human Trafficking Hotline, helping to generate more than 600 likely cases and potentially identify more than 1,000 victims. Most of the truckers who called the hotline were trained by TAT, according to Diemar.

“We’re greatly appreciative of their vigilance and the eyes and ears that they are keeping out on the roadways and at rest stops and at truck stops and helping protect the incredible, vulnerable individuals who are being recruited by traffickers and exploited by traffickers,” Diemar said.

There are tons of abused women whose lives are being saved everyday by these heroic truckers. These women who have been saved and now are turning their lives around are the real brave women, not the ladies who “pass” watered down tests to “become” firefighters or Marines, or the crackpots who have abortions and then “shout” about it on social media.

It’s the type of bystander vigilance that didn’t exist when Bekah Charleston says she was trafficked 10 years ago. Despite being moved all over the country for a decade — through Las Vegas, California, Florida, New York City, North Carolina — and encountering many bystanders, including truck drivers, she says no one said anything or tried to help her, even when she was getting beat up in public or renting motel rooms as a 17-year-old.

“People just choose to look the other way,” she said of her experience.

That’s why she says a program like TAT is crucial in ending human trafficking. Not only because it educates truckers, who are on the road all the time, but also because their calls and reports can help build a wealth of evidence and allow victims to seek justice.

“If I could go back and there had been reports made about me across the country, then it would have been so much easier to prove interstate travel and things like that,” Charleston, 38, said. She eventually escaped trafficking thanks to a neighbor in an upper-middle class neighborhood in Denton, Texas, who called authorities about suspicious activity. She celebrated her 10th year of freedom over the summer.

“They saw something and they said something,” she said. “So I can just speak from personal experience that it’s so important for people to make these reports. You may never know what happens, but just like in my case, that’s how I was able to get out. That neighbor literally saved my life.” [NBC News]

It turns out these truckers have educated each other on how to spot human trafficking with this instructional video (link):

These men never had to do this. They never had to educate themselves on this issue. They did it out of a sense of compassion, love, and duty. And these are the unsung heroes who the lying media vilifies every day as “uneducated” or “white-privileged” or “Trump-supporting racists.”
