FBI Ignores Senate Requests To Investigate Company Distributing Footage Prosecuted As Child Porn

NOTE: NSFW=ADULT CONTENT

BACKGROUND

U.S. feds prosecute commercial footage as child porn. The alleged minors include vintage performers Tove Jensen, and a long-haired blond female known as “Christa”. A government witness testifies that Tove is no older than 14 in her prosecuted footage, “Teenage Tricks”. The government is repeatedly made aware that the Tove and Christa footage could be found on “Blue Vanities” tapes #80 and #82, distributed by a company the prosecutor referred to as “other traffickers” in child porn, Filmfare Video Labs.

Yet post conviction, federal officials allowed Filmfare and retailers to distribute the tapes containing the prosecuted footage as adult material, while a federal agency renewed their trademark.

Senator’s Letter

This conflicting conduct calls into question the integrity and public reputation of the government, and denies citizens the right to know what conduct is legal or illegal. With that background, two U.S. Senators requested the FBI to investigate Filmfare and their “Blue Vanities” (B.V.) tapes. One of those requests, pictured at left, states:

The information you provided to my office, including the name of the company distributing the tapes, has been forwarded to both the US Attorneys Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I have requested that the matter be investigated and I am confident this issue will be reviewed.

An attorney with this Senator confirmed that a personal call was made to FBI Headquarters (and the local U.S. Attorney). A staffer with the second Senator confirmed discussions with a regional FBI supervisor.

FBI Response

Recently, an FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request was made to the FBI for all documents related to any investigation of Filmfare Video Labs and their “Blue Vanities” tapes. By policy, any investigation would have been completed long before the request was made. In a response, dated March 4, 2008 (pictured above), the FBI confirms they ignored the Senators’ requests:

No records responsive to your FOIPA request were located by a search of the automated indices.

If the FBI had conducted an investigation, what would they have found?

TOVE

First, they would have confirmed what the prosecution team refused to acknowledge; that the Tove Jensen “Teenage Tricks” footage prosecuted on government exhibit 17-A, is the same as the “Patsy Learns To Play” footage on B.V. #80.

Diplomat Film Catalog Cover Catalog Ad For Tove's "Teach My Sister" 8mm Cover of Diplomat Film #1027-"Teach My Sister" CC Video Ad For Sex Orgy #806-"Teach My Sister"  Second, they would have discovered that Tove appeared in a number of loops, including the Color Climax produced “Teach My Sister”. As detailed in the photos above and below, this loop was released on their Diplomat label, identified as #1027, then re-released on the video compilation Sex Orgy #806.  The FBI would have discovered that this same footage is identified on B.V. tape #397, (NSFW) with an altered title. NOTE: None of the B.V. tape covers contain the alleged females.

Tove Jensen Index Of Appearances

This would have led to the other appearances of a known female which are well documented  and openly distributed.  And which were produced in the time frame the DOJ claims Tove was a young teen being abused.

CHRISTA

Again, the FBI would have confirmed what the prosecution team refused to investigate; that the prosecuted “Group Sex” footage on government exhibit 17-E, is the same footage as the “Group Sex” loop found on B.V. #82.

Second, as noted previously, Christa appeared in a number of the Teenage Climax loops produced by Film Lab A/S. In addition to the prosecuted “Group Sex” loop, identified as TA Climax #1509, she also appeared in TA Climax #1501 “After School Time”. The FBI would have discovered this footage on B.V. tape #147. (NSFW)

This would have led to the other appearances of Christa, including Color Climax #1435, “Disco Gang Bang”, which can be found on B.V. tapes #151 and tape #433. (NSFW)

The FBI also would have discovered a company operating out of a St. Louis, MO post office box named New Path. New Path bought a large volume of B.V. tapes and is advertising them for sale in the Softcore, Miscellaneous and European categories on their website, adultvid.com. This includes the prosecuted footage of Christa on Tape 82, and footage of her on Tapes 147 and 151, (Euorpean category) which contain the same content and numbering system as the B.V. tapes.

UPDATE: Adultvid.com, registered in 1996, was not set to expire until 2009. But it is currently in limbo. Yet, as the photos below detail, the Christa loops “Group Sex” and “After-school Time” were available on tapes 82 and 147. And the site Contact info was a St. Louis, MO address and phone number.

QUESTIONS:

Under what circumstances would the FBI refuse to honor Congressional requests to investigate a company distributing footage prosecuted as child porn?

Under what circumstances would the FBI allow the unrestricted public access of pornographic footage containing a known female the DOJ claims is 14 years old?

What does the FBI know about the evidence used in this prosecution that they refused to acknowledge to the Senators?

Child porn or continuing conspiracy? What’s the trewthe?

    Hello again,

    I really dont know why nobody wants to solve this case ! They only have to contact the danish authorities. They can do this via INTERPOL. Tiny Tove wasnt 14, this is totally absurd, she started shortly after her 18th birthday. She looks much younger, and the US “experts” use the Tanner scale, thats the reason for this “underage”. The Tanner scale isnt reliable, especially not for north-european girls and young women, who in average look younger as US girls/women of the same age. e.g. Kirsty – a dutch model, she started with 17 in porn – was estimated as 13-years of age with the Tanner scale.

    Christa indeed wasnt 18, she was 15 or 16. She later gave an interview to a swedish magazine, where she said she started with 16. But because Sweden had already a 16-years minimum age for porn, it is possible that Filmlab Denmark dont wanted to tell, that she already started with 15, because of legal problems in the rest of Scandinavia. That she was at least 15 is sure, because the danish government checked the age of the models after 1980, when the laws against childporn were passed and the new legal minimum age for porn was 15. But she wasnt 18 in these loops.

    If someone is really interested to clear this case up, they can do it. But from what Ive read here in the last months, it looks like they dont want it. This is one of the strangest cases ever !

    Welcome back.

    Clearing it up requires them to admit they screwed up, and then covered up.
    Over 50 government officials were given the opportunity to clear it up. Some refused, some, like the two Senators referenced above, looked into it initially, then refused to follow up. Others conspired to prevent access to information and evidence of the government’s misconduct.

    Others put the footage back on the store shelf claiming “we don’t care what the feds say”.

    Now, with international exposure, governments around the world are asking hard questions. We have reason to believe that, like the jury, these governments are being lied to by the U.S. feds.

    @trewthe: “Govenments around the world are asking hard questions” – which governments ? This case raised dust in Denmark ( and to a lesser extent in the Netherlands ), only in the scientific press and among experts, also among former actresses, but thats all. It isnt a theme in the mass media, northern Europeans know, that quite a lot of porn models were 15-17 years old, because that was the law until 2002/3. But it should be a big topic in the US media, because over 50 government officials refused to clear it up. And if I look at the child porn hysteria in the USA, this is very strange. And it is even more strange, that this isnt a big topic in the news. Is it possible, that they wanted the distribution of this material ? How many customers and shop owners got in trouble buying and selling this material ?

    The governments that tend to follow U.S. law, either on their own or under pressure. On the one hand, those that take a hard line approach on anything appearing to be child porn. On the other hand, those that know the U.S. is constantly being exposed as a hypocrite. But it’s going on behind the scenes for now, as most countries are active members of the various coalitions against child porn. Yet no action can take place until the U.S. comes clean.

    Yes it is strange. When Traci Lords was found to be under age, it was all over the news, as were the threats from the DOJ, who had dreams of hundreds of indictments. But the U.S. media, like most Americans, are afraid of their government today. No one seriously challenges the government, especially on child porn issues. In this case, fear prevents most from investigating the matter, as the U.S. continues to insist the footage is child porn, but nothing prevents them from asking why the footage is still available over the counter, and copyrighted. Except fear of the government.

    As far as we know, this is the only case involving this footage, but it’s difficult to know for sure. What we do know, is that a private investigator swore out an affidavit detailing where this footage could be found in area video stores. That affidavit was hand delivered to a federal prosecutor, who did nothing. That information was then presented to the local police where one of the stores was located. They rented and copied B.V. #80 and offered it to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. We’ll be posting about that in the future.
