Last week, the news world was rocked when it was announced that John Griffin, a longtime producer at CNN, had been arrested.
Griffin has been charged with child trafficking.
What we did not know is that a search warrant had been issued 17 months ago.
Why So Long?
Jane Turner, a former FBI special agent who blew the whistle on the FBI’s mishandling of child sex crime cases in North Dakota’s Native American reservations, is now slamming the agency for how it treated this case.
Much like the case she was involved with, she believes it took the FBI far too long to act.
She stated, “He obviously is a sexual predator, and has gone from grooming children into actually ‘capturing’ them.
“Very, very dangerous offender.”
She even went a step further saying that the FBI “don’t give a da– about these kind of cases.”
The case seemed pretty cut and dry, at least from the evidence we have seen.
For instance, the prosecutor’s pretrial detention memo reads, “When confronted with this video during an interview by FBI agents, Griffin’s first response was merely to suggest he was not looking at the naked girl, despite that she was standing so close to him to be touching.”
Turner, on Griffin, stated, “He has a horrific hatred of women.
“I would like to know his background.
“He is an incredibly dangerous offender.”
She then suggested that the delay in his arrest may have put other girls at risk.
Turner stated, “As Roy Hazelwood taught profilers at Quantico, where you find one, there are many more: Kick open the door.
“They should have kicked this up to the ‘A Team,’ put a lot of time and resources on it, but as we all know, anything to do with sex and kids holds a yuck factor for a lot of agents and their supervisors.”
Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor who has been monitoring the case, added, “I can’t think of any legitimate reason for the delay in arresting Griffin, especially when the adoptive mother was arrested in August 2020.
“Even if he were cooperating, it would usually be post-arrest and indictment.”
Griffin is now facing two counts of attempted child sex trafficking and one count of child sex trafficking.
