Vigilante Truckers:

Diminishing demand in the sex trafficking industry to set victims free

Interview by Dr. Jay Zinn


I first met Bo Quickel in a men’s meeting and he later became a member of our church. Bo has a unique calling on his life, a passion that God gave him for the victims of sex trafficking. He is the founder of “Vigilante Truckers,” a ministry that concentrates on diminishing the demand side of sex trafficking.


Let’s start with a little background on yourself, Bo, so that we may get a sense of your life’s journey toward this mission you have now.

In 2007 I had come back to the Lord. Though I grew up in a Christian home and attended a Bible-believing church, I went astray to build the kingdom of Bo and made my millions. For two decades I worked hard and played hard having no boundaries when it came to the material possessions I wanted. But none of those things provided long-term benefits or satisfaction. So I decided to turn around and go back to building my heavenly Father’s kingdom.

The first thing I wanted to do was to create a faith-based movie series beginning with a nice edgy plot involving sex trafficking. Well the actors were chosen, the script written, the production company online… then the bottom fell out of the U.S. economy and along with it vast sums of money from my earthly kingdoms vast treasures. So the movie never became a reality, and the passion to end sex trafficking was placed on the shelf along with the script to gain a healthy layer of dust.


What happened after that?

Fast forward to early February 2012, where the kingdom of Bo no longer exists except in the minds of past fair-weather acquaintances. I received a phone call from a new business acquaintance and friend, Bonny Church. She asked me to meet with a young, dynamic couple who was starting an abolitionist movement. They needed help with a business proposal to raise capital. With my experience in putting together proposals for my past companies, I felt this was an easy request to fulfill. I must admit that I hadn’t heard the word “abolitionist” since my high-school social studies class. Abolitionists are people who fight against human slavery. We met for lunch, which extended to dinner and beyond into the late night.

I learned that human slavery is 80 percent defined under human sex trafficking, and 80 percent of that number is made up of women. As I listened to their stories about all the physical and mental atrocities … well, let’s just say that childhood boy who dreamed of Sir Lancelot, and that childhood boy—defender of God’s Kingdom—came raging back on the scene as a grown man who would never be the same. It was in that 10-hour meeting that God birthed an unquenchable passion for the liberation and total restoration of God’s girls from the hands of the enemy. There was simply no way that having that knowledge in my mind, attached to my heart, that I could ever turn my back, put my head back in the sand, or any other variation of selfishness. I would have to do something, anything to help; and the question rapidly became “what?”

That “what” for you became a different approach than the other abolitionist movements?

Yes, because most of the charities, ministries, causes, abolitionists, and great-hearted people that I’ve met who are combating the sex trafficking industry are all attempting to reduce the supply of girls in the marketplace. And with all good intentions aside, this can only make the industry stronger by driving up the demand, which drives up the demand price. So I am tackling this from the “demand” side of the business.

Explain what you mean by that?

Well, let’s look at it first from a purely business sense. Aside from the emotional implications of this horrific industry, sex is a product for sale, a multi-billion-dollar industry. Big box stores would sell it on their shelves if it were legal and morally accepted. The sale of a product begins with the manufacturer, and sales happen in any business when there is a demand for the product—which in this case is sex. The product then has to be distributed, and in sex trafficking, the distributors are the recruiters, the handlers, and the pimps. Then you have the consumer—the men who desire sex. So the business model for sex trafficking is that you have the product of girls being sold by handlers and bought by men. The girls are supplied because of the demand from the consumer. Girls taken off the streets, though an important piece in dealing with this, doesn’t eliminate the demand. There are always more girls to replace them. But if there weren’t the demand for the girls, then the manufacturers would pull back from finding more girls.

So how do you get men to stop demanding the product?

It has to begin with a vehicle to educate men about the “new normal” of prostitution, which isn’t prostitution at all, in the purest sense of the word. Today’s alleged prostitute is a slave, not operating out of her own freedom to be the entrepreneur of her body.

Prostitution is one the oldest professions in history. A prostitute sold her body for money and had a partner, called a “pimp,” who provided her with security against the buyer (an immoral, bad man). When the woman owned her own body, the buyer (the man) would pay $60 for sex with her. Then she (the seller) would pay her pimp (the protector) $20. She kept the $40 to put herself through law school, or buy food and clothes for her children, or invest in her hobby of drug addiction. But no matter what she did with the money, sexual immorality aside, that was a pretty clean business transaction, similar to buying a new pair of expensive shoes. Now if we looked at it like this today, then according to supply-side economics, it makes sense to get the product (the prostitutes) off the shelves through awareness, education, and some good old-fashioned religion.

The breakdown to this approach, however, is two-fold. One, the girls who are removed from this so-called career of prostitution are replaced by another supply of girls, because of the ever-increasing demand for sex in a sexually charged society. Two, these are no longer legitimate prostitutes. I am working toward educating the men, who are the consumers, so as to remove the fantasy and misleading belief that they are having sex with prostitutes who are doing this as a profession or a career. In their minds, the product approaches them, the price is such and such, money is then exchanged for the service, and no harm done. This is no longer the case. Prostitution is gone. It has been run out of town a long time ago. These girls are now human slaves, not freewill agents of their own bodies who have a pimp to keep them safe from sexual deviants.

So you are saying that all the girls seen on the streets are sex-trafficked slaves?

Not only on the streets, but at truck stops and nice hotels in the upper-class scale of sex trafficking.

How did this all come about?

Somewhere along the line, in 2002- 2003, drug dealers figured out that smuggling drugs into our country had become a high risk for a one-time reward. And it was getting very hard to find a place in the world to manufacture the drugs. Then the dark bulb went off. They could smuggle a kidnapped, seasoned girl into our country one time, and sell her 20 times a night, 365 days a year, for 7 years. They thought, “What a business concept—the return would be in the billions!” And so it was, and so it is! So trafficking enters our borders into a distribution pipeline that is already established on every street corner, with a demand that is not only made up of the poor, dirty and addicted, but also the highest flying well paid and well-paying executives.

There is a real serious game change then.

That’s right. What used to be a simple business transaction grows dark and dreary. The pimps who were once the protectors became the predators. So now the transaction goes like this: The pimp or the handler, now sells the sex for the same $60. He keeps it all and gives the girl nothing. She gives up her product of sex with her body for free, because she is under the threat of physical harm and most certainly death. And in every state in this country, when you have sex with a person under the coercion of physical harm, well that my friends is called “rape.” The 2013 business of sex trafficking and prostitution is no longer sex for money between two consenting adults, it is money for the opportunity to rape a child, or at best, rape a non-consenting adult. So, now, “supply-side economics” doesn’t work. Now, “demand” drives the activity. Now, “demand” drives the profit. Now, “demand” dictates that the distributors (i.e. the recruiters, handlers, or pimps) get all the money and the woman gets nothing but a polluted life and the garbage that floats in it until they receive a welcomed death.

How does this fit into your mission with Vigilante Truckers?

Well, in my journey of discovering the facts about this industry, I found out that truck drivers make up 60 percent of the demand. They are 60 percent of the buyers of the sold product. So I have launched a grassroots group of protectors called “Vigilante Truckers.” I am slowly building a fleet of trucks to be driven by men who are on board with my mission. On the outside of the cabs, my trucks are wrapped with advertisements to soccer moms on the highways. But more importantly, to let the handlers and truckers (the demand buyers) that we know the deal, and are putting a stop to it.

I now move throughout the Southeast spreading the word that if you are a truck driver and you have sex with a female for money that you are in fact, raping her. Even in prison, the lowest level of moralistic humanity, the prisoners have no respect for rapists, and, furthermore, kill them. Even the most hardened God-hater has a mother, sister, or wife that he would kill for, should she be raped.

So by helping the public and the truck driver understand that prostitution is now “rape,” the demand will stop, the supply will drop dramatically, and tens of thousands of God’s victimized girls will be returned to their rightful place, sitting in his lap of love!



Bo and Vigilante Truckers
Vigilante Truckers was established in 2011 as a Kingdom Solution to ending the atrocity created by the sex slavery industry within the field of freight transport.
Bo’s background in business is diverse to the definition. He has founded and co-founded more than 12 multi-million-dollar businesses in eight different market industries. While his focus was in building his own kingdom over the previous four decades, after the last economic siege left his castle in shambles, he realized that rebuilding his kingdom was not worthy of the effort. Rather, Bo decided that joining forces with his God to restore a Heavenly Kingdom on Earth was much more important. Under this new theology, Bo works hand in hand with Vigilante Truckers, Drivers, and Company Owners to educate the truck drivers that sex trafficking exists and how they can play a role in its demise.
