Since then the shame based John's school program, specifically SAGE, has closed down in San Francisco, however the DA is still running a shaming program. Clients are in the crosshairs around the world. Here is a collection of material for further info.

Re: “The Real Reason Why Oakland's Police Chief Was Fired

This sort of abuse is not uncommon. Young people often report that police officers engage in such behavior. Research demonstrates this, such as this excerpt on page 29:…

"Many girls said that police sexual misconduct happens frequently while they are being
arrested or questioned. One journal respondent wrote “Girls recognize that they need advocates when dealing with these systems, whether it is from their peers, or a trusted adult.” Stories about police abuse outnumbered the stories of abuse by other systems by far."

This would potentially fit into the California definition of trafficking, so I am surprised not to see that word used.
