The job was formerly held by Vice President, Kamala Harris. Her platform: Justice for VictimsShe describes herself as a ‘tough-on-crime candidate’ who, in recent years, has helped put the Golden State Killer behind bars, and has been a leading force in the pursuit of justice through DNA evidence and cold-case prosecution. In 2002, she formed the Cold Case Prosecution Unit and served as its first prosecutor.While Anne Marie Schubert may be best known for the successful investigation, arrest, and conviction of the Golden State Killer, she has made a career of protecting kids from sexual predators and human trafficking and making sure violent criminals are held accountable for their crimes.  As District Attorney of Sacramento, Anne Marie Schubert has successfully put some of the state’s most notorious and violent criminals behind bars, including murderers, rapists and child molesters. She has aggressively prosecuted major corporations for practices that harm the environment and has worked to get illegal firearms off the streets.If elected, Schubert, 57, would be the first openly gay state attorney general. She is the co-parent of two teenage boys who she loves dearly.Even more significantly, Schubert is the rare political candidate vying for a major statewide office who is neither Republican nor Democrat but is running as an Independent.Join us for an open, candid discussion of one woman’s powerful vision of justice for victims of child sexual abuse and sexual violence now running for Attorney General in California.

In this episode I’m talking with AUDREY MORRISSEY, a sex trafficked BIPOC child now adult survivor who says she was sold 10-20 times a day. “I’ve  been beaten, tortured, and left for dead.” "I thought I was going to die in the combat zone of sex traffickers.Her traffickers would use words like “Young. Fresh."It’s not like the blockbuster movie, “Taken”, where a pair of unwitting girls travel to Paris, and make every parent cringe by giving men they just met their address, and confirmation that they’re traveling alone. They’re abducted, and Liam Neeson saves the day and his daughter. However, for the hundreds of thousands of children that are sex trafficked, there’s no one coming to save the day. “Taken” is not what sex trafficking looks like in America. In most cases, our stereotypical perception of a “prostitute” is, in reality, a commercially sex trafficked victim,” say Morrissey.It  is a multi-billion-dollar industry, and our children are being sold on a large scale. The sex trafficking industry makes more profit from sex trafficking than any other illegal trafficking in drugs or weapons. Morrissey says “People don't understand this is happening right here in the United States."Her fervent conviction is that no child should be bought or sold.“Image sex with someone you love, but you have to have sex with them 10-20 times per day."If you can’t have sex with someone you love 10-20 times a day, how can you want to have sex with strangers 10-20 a day?”"I never once in my life, when I was a kid, said 'When I grow up, I want to be a prostitute.'" Listeners, Please Note:  Shari Karney, the host of Roar with Shari. . .

I’m talking to social activist and rainmaker, Cherie Benjoseph, LCSW.  She has a passion for empowering children in order to keep our kids safe.  As co-founder of the KidSafe Foundation, she works with community leaders, kids, parents, guardians, foster care, and child-serving professionals to improve defining the ever-changing issues around protecting children.  Because, in order to keep kids safe we need to educate adults, parents, and their caregivers as well. Predators, pedophiles, and perpetrators groom not only the kids, but the community as well.  Cherie Benjoseph says, “We teach children to recognize their feelings, go to their Safe Adults, and speak assertively when they feel uncomfortable.  Through a fun—not fearful—interactive education, they can be taught what a right to safety really means and that there is strength and support in asking for help.”Now, more than ever, it is critical that we work to keep our kids safe. Pornhub is the 10th most visited website in the world and has 113 Million downloads a day of child sexual abuse and child pornography. There is more child sexual assault, stalking, blackmailing of children through fear of their sexual images being circulated on the internet than ever before!  Predators can abuse, assault, blackmail, and perpetrate online. Gaming, social media, are where many of today’s child predators are lurking posing as 13-year olds, and preying on our children. Just as technology changes, so must the protection of our kids so that the next generation can live healthy, productive, trauma-free lives. Cherie’s mission is to keep our KidSafe and free from child sexual abuse and exploitation. “It is attainable”, she says. 
In this episode, I’m talking to child-on-child sexual abuse survivor, Adrianne Simeone, the founder of the non-profit, The Mama Bear Effect.She calls our unwillingness to confront this issue head-on as “ Willful Blindness.” “Child sexual abuse is not necessarily an epidemic because abusers are so effective at perpetrating, but because the taboo, and consequent discomfort and fear, hold protective adults back from being aware, effectively empowering children, and responding appropriately.”Child on child sexual abuse as well as all child sexual abuse is one that parents, caregivers, and loved ones, just don’t want to deal with. And they don’t know how. Adrianne works tirelessly educating parents, caregivers, pediatricians on behalf of children to prevent child sexual abuse.  The Mama Bear Effect is a nonprofit whose mission is  to change the way people think, talk, and respond to child sexual abuse. Adrian calls child sexual abuse, “The Silent Pandemic.” About the issue of should I protect my children from the reality of child sexual abuse, Adrianne says, “ I am not going to shroud my children from this reality to somehow 'protect' them from the truth that the world isn't as safe and wonderful as we want it to be. I want them to know the truth so that when they have the power to do so, they can help make it better rather than turn a blind eye like so many doListeners Please Note: Shari Karney, the host of Roar with Shari. . .

In this episode, I’m talking with Nicole-Earnest-Payte raped at gunpoint by a man who threatened to kill her. She knew at that point; she wasn’t getting out of this.Here is how Nicole told us her story.On June 22, 1991, 21-year-old Nicole Earnest-Payte was awakened on her couch by a man in a ski mask carrying a handgun about 8:30 at night after falling asleep on a couch in her home. He put his arm around her neck and throat to control her, while holding a gun at her head, held her hands behind her back as he forced her up from the couch, partially disrobed, all while continuing to hold a gun to head, telling her that he was only there to rob her and to stay quiet. Still masked, behind her with a gun still at her head, he then led her upstairs to her bedroom, put her face down on her bed, hog-tied her hands and feet together, duct-taped her eyes and mouth, and tied a pillowcase around her head. He then left her on the bed while he went downstairs to go through her personal belongings that he ultimately stole from her. He came back with a boom box. He turned it to a station that played love songs and told her these are our songs; these are our love songs. Nicole never saw her attacker’s face because he wore a ski mask and taped over her eyes.  Then, he turned the radio on. Nicole said, “At that point, he had only been looking through my belongings and asking for money, But at some point, he turned me over on my back and I started shaking because I knew what was about to happen…. I was shaking and started to cry. He said, ‘Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be as bad as you think.’” Nicole knew at that point she was not getting out of this. While raping Nicole multiple times throughout the course of several hours, Nicole’s attacker threatened multiple times to kill her that night. I felt terrified for my life, couldn’t believe what was happening, Nicole said , “I tried to think of ways to get away. “I knew there was no way I could get out of this. I was absolutely terrified. I just wanted him to get out of my house, and I thought if I don’t fight him maybe he’ll leave.”  The man told her he had been watching her for a week.  After the first time he raped her,  he began kissing her all over her body. He knew details of her personal life: how tall her ex-boyfriend was, where she worked, that she typically left her sliding glass door unlocked during the day while she was at work, generally locking it at night when she was in the house.  At some point, he started to apologize while laying kind of next to her. He said, ‘I’m sorry for doing this. I’ve never done this before and I’ll never do it again, I promise.’” The attacker finally left her home at about 2:30 a.m., after taking her ATM card and PIN and tying her hands in front of her with duct tape. Then he gave her a butter knife to cut the tape and strict instructions. “He instructed her to wait for three songs on the radio and cut herself free. Don’t call the police or I will know, and I will come back and kill you before they come.’ Then, as he left, the attacker said something “mockingly, ‘You should lock your doors from now on. Someone might come in and try to hurt you. ’After the three songs had played, she cut herself loose, got dressed, and grabbed a clothes iron as a weapon because she feared he was still there. Even after finding no one inside the home, she was still too terrified to call the police. She called her mother in Tiburon. She said ‘Mom, I just was raped at gunpoint in my house by a masked man, I need you to get here,’” Her mom told her to hang up and call the police. Nicole, too terrified to call police, truly believed he had access to a scanner.” Within minutes her mother showed up with Rohnert Park police with her as she passed them making a traffic stop in Rohnert Park near Nicole’s home. After 27 years of believing he would never be caught and punished here's what happened. 
In this episode, I’m talking with Jennifer Carole, the daughter of a successful attorney, on his way to becoming a judge, who was murdered and his wife raped and bludgeoned to death, while the killer remained free to rape and kill some more,  and the victims and their families were deprived of justice for 40 years!  Today Jennifer Carole is here with us to share her horrifying experience learning of her father Lynman Smith and stepmother’s (Carlene Smith) murdered & RAPE when Jennifer was just 18 years old.  Finding justice was long and arduous for her. It took 38 years of dead ends, heartache, and personal struggles to learn that her father and stepmother were murdered by Joseph DeAngelo, aka "The  Golden State Killer."  IT  confounds her as to why and how her parents were targeted to be the only murders in Ventura by the GSK. For years she thought it was something her parents had done that caused him to murder them but now accepts this was a senseless random attack.  Sadly, Joseph DeAngelo is not talking, and it is not expected that the Smith family will ever get the answers they need to have.Throughout the search for her father’s killer, Jennifer lived with her father’s legal perspective in her head and as a result, she looked at this case through the eyes of a lawyer and the heart of a victim. We, at Roar as One, understand, that if you don’t take rape victims seriously, like the crime victims they are, you could be the next victim on the rapists, now turned murderers target list.Listeners,  Please Note:Shari Karney, the host of Roar with Shari. . .

In this episode, I’m talking with rape victim, Rosebud Ireland, the last rape victim of The East Side Rapist before he turned into The Golden State Killer (raping and then killing his victims). Rosebud Ireland was only 22 years old when she was awakened suddenly at 3 AM feeling suffocated by a leather glove and a pillow over her head. The gloved man raped her and disappeared. For the next 39 years, Rose tried her best to go on with life, but she suffered from  PTSD, and rape trauma, never knowing who her rapist was, or being able to hold him accountable.  The day that Joseph DeAngelo, the Golden State Killer (HBO docuseries I'll Be Gone in the Dark) was captured, Rosebud knew it was him. The one that had raped her so many years ago. She then set out to find and seek justice. She was disbelieved, blamed, disrespected. The detective on her case asked, “what were you wearing at the time of the rape?” Rosebud Ireland describes her battle trying to get justice from the wealthy entitled, privileged, celebrity enclave of Santa Barbara County, CA to hold the killer accountable for raping her in 1979. Listeners, Please Note:Shari Karney, the host of Roar with Shari. . .

In this episode, I’m talking to a grandmother who experienced first-hand the devastating impact of child sexual abuse in her family. The financial, emotional,  psychological and legal devastation.  It all began when Carol D’Attoma’s six-year-old granddaughter was sexually abused by her father.  He was arrested, and Carol’s daughter’s main source of income was gone. The mother of the child (Carol’s daughter) had to sell her home, her car, and re-locate to a less expensive area with more immediate family support.  Her income was not enough to support her four little girls, so Carol and her husband John began a campaign to raise money to help her pay for medical deductibles, co-pays, fresh fruit and vegetables, and assist with her living expenses.Carol D'Attoma now devotes full time executing her passion for helping families and children victimized by child sexual predators. She is Co-Founder of Sexually Abused Children’s Relief Endeavor known as SACRED.Sacred has raised $1,082,102 since our inception, granted over $640,000, assisted 340 families and growing and assisted 317 children. Listeners, Please Note:  Shari Karney, the host of Roar with Shari. . .
