Buffalo man accused of using social media for rape, child porn and child prostitution

Robert Pritchett

Robert Pritchett

20-year-old Robert Pritchett of Buffalo, New York is a real piece of work. Not only is he under investigation for child porn and rape charges in which he allegedly used mobile messaging app Kik for, but he’s also accused of prostituting a 17-year-old girl on Backpage and MeetMe.

Federal investigators believe he may have more victims…

While online, Pritchett went by a variety of names including James Heart, James Cooper, James Matthew, Tyler Games, James Allen, Jamez Tommy, Gabriel Michaels, Jess Allen, Thomas Allen, Matthew Allen, James Church, Faith Anderson and Max Heart.

If you have any information in connection to this case, you’re asked to contact the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force at 716.856.7800 or go to http://www.fbi.gov to submit a tip electronically.

Again I would recommend talking to your kids about scum like this and let them know that any adult they don’t know that starts talking to them online is more than likely out to harm them.

Suspect crosses state lines in attempt to have sex with 12-year-old from Omegle

Ryan Salehzadeh

Ryan Salehzadeh

25-year-old Ryan Reza Salehzadeh, of Fayetteville, Georgia, allegedly traveled to Pembroke Pines, Florida, in order to ‘have sex’ (child rape) with a 12-year-old girl whom he met on the webcam chat site Omegle. According to Google Maps that’s roughly a 9 hour drive. For those of you who may not know Omegle is a site that pairs you up with a random person to chat with. Its motto even encourages you to ‘Talk to strangers!’

Salehzadeh is said to have told the girl that he loved her and wanted him to be the first mas she had sex with. He also used the old predator adage of ‘age is just a number’…

“Age doesn’t matter it’s just a silly number, plus I’m not one of those people who freak out about age, I don’t care about age,” he wrote, according to the arrest warrant. “I want you baby.”

As I’ve said before Omegle is not an app. It’s a website that cab be accessed from any camera enabled device that has internet access and a web browser and Omegle has no way of verifying your child’s age. That means your kids could potentially access Omegle from their phone, tablet or computer at any time opening them up to predators like this. Luckily Salehzadeh was arrested before he could harm the girl but other children that have met predators through Omegle have not been so lucky.

Trench’s Linux Recommendation: Linux Lite

linuxlite

Recently I came into possession of an older netbook. It was recommended to me to use Linux Lite on it as its repeating system as Linux Lite is said to be great for older and low powered computers. I was pleasantly pleased with the performance of it on my netbook. Then my main laptop was starting to have issues with the Linux distro that I had on it. Just some inexplicable little glitches that made the experience with my previous distro somewhat annoying so I decided to put Linux Lite on my main computer and boy is it fast.

What I like about Linux Lite is that it boots fast, it has a clean and crisp design, it’s based on Ubuntu and comes with the XFCE desktop. While I was able to install it on a netbook with a normal sized hard drive Linus Lite can not be put on the Asus EEEpc 701 4g Surf but that’s a minor quibble. I can not recommend Linux Lite enough to anyone looking for a fast and clean OS for not only older computers but new ones as well.

20/20 to air interview with mother of Columbine killer

columbinesign

This coming Friday ABC News will be airing their interview on 20/20 that Diane Sawyer did with Susan Klebold, the mother of Columbine coward Dylan Klebold. They’re calling the episode “Silence Broken: A Mother’s Reckoning”. That’s because the airing of the interview coincides with the release of Klebold’s book “A Mother’s Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy”. You’ll have to forgive me if I don’t believe any actual reckoning will take place. I’ve posted about all this before so please indulge me while I copy and paste some of Sue’s greatest hits.

From my initial post on when the book was first announced

In the past during rare times that she has spoken to the media she has made excuses for her, her husband Tom and their hellspawn. In 2004 she told the New York Times that “I haven’t done anything for which I need forgiveness.” In 2009 in an essay she wrote for O Magazine she basically admitted how clueless she was when it came to her son and again she admitted as such in a 2012 book about children who commit crimes. So you’ll have to forgive me if I think the book is going to be anything but more of the same.

But I hear you say “She’s not being paid for the book.” Of course she isn’t, not directly anyway. The only reason the proceeds are going to charity is because the families of the real victims of her son would raise holy hell if she took even a penny. That doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to get compensated especially if the book takes off.

Then from my post about when the 20/20 interview was first announced

Too many news shows these days try to portray criminals as victims or falsely accused and a number of gullible viewers believe whatever is spouted from the mouths of talking heads which in turn is helping to lead to a society where no one is held responsible for their actions. As having said before that she has nothing to apologize for, Sue Klebold will be their champion.

And I wrote that months before people were starting to be deceived by Making a Murderer.

Susan Klebold is not brave, she doesn’t deserve sympathy and she’s certainly no victim. For the past 17 years she’s been nothing but the poster child for not taking personal responsibility whether it be for her or her cowardly demon spawn.

RSO accused of running child porn ring on Kik

Robert J. Holloran

Robert J. Holloran

With the recent news of mobile messaging app Kik being connected to the murder of Nicole Lovell a copious amount of Kik creepers have emerged from the woodwork. Some of whom look like they literally came from the woodwork.

For example, take 39-year-old Robert J. Holloran of St. Louis. He is accused of running a child porn group on Kik called “youngtorture”. Let that settle in for a minute. Holloran was not only charged with allegedly downloading thousands of child porn images but since he’s a registered sex offender he was also charged with failing to register his social media accounts.

Sadly Holloran is probably far from the last sex offender or pedophile to be found operating within the confines of Kik.

Pervert priest in training pursued purchase of baby on craigslist

Joel Wright

Joel Wright

23-year-old Joel Wright of Columbus, Ohio, isn’t doing the Catholic Church any favors when it comes to shedding their pedophile priest image. The seminary student was arrested in San Diego for allegedly trying to buy and adopt an infant girl in Mexico. Wright allegedly placed an ad on craigslist looking for a child to adopt in Tijuana. Wright’s intentions were reportedly anything but altruistic.

Investigators said after the tipster began responding to the newest Craigslist ad, the conversation eventually revealed Wright’s “desire to engage in illicit sexual conduct with female infants.” In one email, Wright reportedly said, “I have not gone all the way before but I have made it very close in the past so I do have experance.” (sic)

Sadly this is not that uncommon of an occurrence on craigslist. Criminals like this are constantly posting ads either looking for children to have sex with or in some cases the parents are turning out their kids on craigslist to monsters like this. Craigslist still refuses to do anything to clean up their own yard preferring this child trade to continue unabated. For every creep that’s arrested for crimes like this how many more are getting away with it?

Trench’s proposed rules for choosing the antichrist

starmason

Facebook seems to be a never-ending source of both amusement and frustration for me. I used to block people who would post something completely ludicrous. Now I use it to see what bullcrap is being posted and being passed off as fact.

Today one of my Facebook friends posted a link to an article from an end times conspiracy website. The article was about Pope Francis and how something he said in a sermon was some kind of secret code for all Catholics to eat babies or something. The actual subject of the article is immaterial because what I want to focus on is that at the end of the article it basically states “We’re calling it right now. Pope Francis is the antichrist.” The same Pope Francis who has eschewed the financial trappings that many of his predecessors embraced. The same Pope Francis who has preached nothing but peace and love among all religions since being elected to his position. The same man who drives around in a used 1984 Renault. It’s kind of hard to take a website like that seriously when they claim that the Super Bowl was filled with hidden Illuminati propaganda. More than likely Pope Francis is not the first person they’ve claimed to be the antichrist. I’m sure if I dug deep enough they probably also accused President Obama, Peyton Manning and Justin Bieber of being the antichrist although they nay be right on that last one.

So I am officially imposing a rule on antichrist accusations right now. From now on you only get one so make it count. If you say that Pope Francis is the antichrist and it turns out that you’re wrong, you’re done. No more antichrist guessing for you.

Also here’s a fun game to play if you know someone like that. If they say that so and so is the antichrist bet them $1000 that they’re wrong. Tell them that if they’re so sure that they know who the antichrist is then they’ll have no problem putting their money where their mouth is.

Lastly as an aside before you go bashing all religions in the comments I am a religious man but what I’m not is a fundamentalist asshat who hides behind their faith in order to spread hate and ignorance.

When a podcast pursues prostitution

microphone

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts recently when the subject turned to prostitution. Now this wasn’t some hard-hitting news podcast but more of a humor/entertainment podcast. The podcast participants started commenting about how prostitution should be legal and how they don’t see it as a problem. I had to turn the podcast off at that point. I wasn’t offended but I just knew I would get frustrated listening to what essentially came down to the much cited myth of ‘consenting adults’. I just don’t see how legalizing prostitution would magically eliminate all the problems that go along with it. How would that eliminate human trafficking, child prostitution, rape, organized crime, drug addiction, violence against the prostitutes committed by both johns and pimps, and the like?

As is usually the case when this subject comes up a lot of people will point to places like Amsterdam and Nevada as examples of how legalized prostitution is flourishing. Sadly the reality here is even in legal zones like those mentioned all the aforementioned problems still take place.

Do I think the podcasters were trying to push some pro-sexual slavery agenda? No, of course not. Like too many people they are just uneducated on what prostitution really entails beyond the ‘consenting adults’ mantra.

Florida teacher suspended over explicit Snapchats

Dionne Younce

Dionne Younce

I’m going to level with you. Half of the reason I’m doing this story is because of the traffic it will generate to the site, however let me make it perfectly clear that so far no criminal charges have been filed.

28-year-old Dionne Younce is a high school phys ed teacher at a St. John’s County high school in Florida. She was recently suspended with pay for allegedly sending nude or suggestive Snapchats to some of the male students at her school. As of the time I’m writing this the ages of the students have not been made public but local police are conducting an investigation. Younce is not believed to have had any kind of sexual physical contact with the students in question.

The other reasons I’ve posted this story is because here we have another case of a teacher using Snapchat inappropriately with their students and the fact that since she’s young and reasonably attractive will she even be charged let alone see any kind of legal admonishment for her actions. I’m no woman hating neckbeard but this story has the potential to once again high light the double standard society has for female sexual predators. If this had been a male teacher he probably would have been arrested with extreme prejudice but since the alleged perpetrator is an attractive woman we have too many guys who think “I wish she could have been my teacher bro.” not unlike the case of Debra Lafave. Lafave was a young attractive Florida teacher who only got three years of house arrest for ‘having sex’ with a 14-year-old male student. If the gender roles had been reversed and a male teacher sent nude Snapchats to female students you’d be able to see all the pitchforks and torches looming over the horizon.

This one will be interesting to say the least.

Alabama Kik kreeper tried to check girl out of school

Carlton Carvel Bates

Carlton Carvel Bates

First I want to give props to AL.com for using the word rape in their headline regarding the following incident. Underage children can not legally consent to sex so it is a form of rape.

Anyway, 35-year-old Carlton Carvel Bates or Birmingham, Alabama, is accused of allegedly ‘having sex (i.e. child rape) with a 14-year-old girl that he met, where else, on the mobile messaging app Kik. Prior to his arrest Bates had already ‘had sex’ with the Blount County girl on at least one occasion. On this trip however Bates went to the girl’s high school in an attempt to check her put of class. Luckily the school staff didn’t fall for it.

Think about that for just a moment. This man allegedly went to the girl’s school an hour away from his home, walked into the school and spoke with school staff possibly posing as a relative in an attempt to check her out of class for the sole purpose of ‘having sex’ with a 14-year-old girl. That’s a new parents’ nightmare for you.

Luckily it was his hubris that caused his downfall. The school contacted police who posed as the girl on Kik and maybe no so ironically arrested him outside of an establishment called Mugshots.

Not to belabor the point but if you’re not keeping an eye on your kids’ online activities the many sex offenders and pedophiles using the Kik app will.
