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.

Colorado Kik kreeper caught in Connecticut

Nathaniel Smith

Nathaniel Smith

29-year-old Nathaniel Smith of Aurora, Colorado, was arrested in New London, Connecticut, after traveling there to allegedly have sex (i.e. child rape) with a 13-year-old girl he met on the mobile messaging app Kik. Smith reportedly took a bus from Colorado to Connecticut in order to take the girl back to Colorado with him. They missed their scheduled departure and Smith booked a hotel room where he ‘had sex’ with the girl.

Talk about a twisted determination. This assclown traveled for days by bus, which seems to be the preferred method of transportation for interstate child molesters, in order to basically kidnap a 13-year-old girl. God only knows what could have happened to this girl if they had made it back to his place.

Anyone who has information concerning this incident is encouraged to contact the New London Police Department’s Detective Division at 860-447-1481 or anonymous information can be submitted via the New London Tips 411 system.

By now I shouldn’t have to tell you that Kik is crawling with any number of sex offenders and pedophiles. While Kik does often cooperate with police they’re really not looking out for anyone’s kid. In our always connected world a vigilant parent is the best and in most cases the only line of defense between their kids and online predators.

Florida man charged with sexually assaulting girl he met on Omegle

omegle-logo

36-year-old Scott Prince of Naples, Florida, is accused of allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl. He is said to have met the girl on the random web chat site Omegle. Here is a list of his alleged offenses courtesy of WINKNews.com…

The pair met on three different occasions between December 2015 and Jan. 23:

A Bob Evans restaurant off Northbrooke Plaza Drive in December. They had sex in a nearby parking lot, the report said.

At Prince’s home in January. She was asked to perform sexual acts, the report said.

On Saturday, she was forced to perform sexual acts in his den, then was sexually assaulted in his bedroom, the report said.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office say that there may be more victims.

Here’s the thing about Omegle. Some reports call it an app but it’s not. Omegle is just a website, It can be used on any device that has a camera and an internet connection. It works amazingly well not only on PCs but on mobile devices as well. The only thing you need to use Omegle is a web browser. So if you’re looking for an Omegle app you won’t find one. If you’re looking for it on any of your kids’ devices you’ll have to check the browser history.

The other think about Omegle is that I don’t think enough law enforcement agencies are aware of the site. ‘Omegle arrests’ and ‘can I be arrested from Omegle?’ are the top search terms people use to find my website yet there aren’t enough arrests in proportion to the number of searches I receive. Kik makes many more headlines with arrests being involved yet hardly anyone searches for that. It leads me to believe that Omegle is possibly just as rife as Kik is with predators. The problem may be that Omegle doesn’t require any kind of user account as its purpose is to connect you with someone random regardless of age. That kind of anonymity combined with the number of kids that are on it and the lack of law enforcement involvement is a dangerous mix.

Dance teacher sent Snapchats to students letting them know it was ‘shower time’

Angel Pagan

Another case of a teacher using Snapchat to prey on students. This time it’s a 31-year-old dance teacher from a Chicago prep school. Angel Pagan is said to have allegedly taken pictures of his junk and sent it to some of his male students over Snapchat. That doesn’t even begin to cover how creepy this guy allegedly is.

From DNAinfo…

According to prosecutors, Pagan taught the first victim, a 16-year-old boy, in one of his dance classes. In early December 2015, Pagan allegedly walked in on the boy as he showered, fully nude, in a school locker room, and began to make comments about the teen’s genitalia.

Pagan also groped the boy several times, claiming he was performing a “cup check,” prosecutors said. In late December and early January, the boy received Snapchat photos of Pagan’s penis. The teen took a screenshot of one of the images and turned it over to police, according to prosecutors.

From ABC7…

Prosecutors also say Pagan fondled two students, exposing himself to one of them in the school’s locker room after showering. He also allegedly sent pictures of his genitals to the students with captions that said “fresh and clean” and “shower time.”

From the Chicago Tribune…

Later, when Pagan got out of the shower himself, he called the boy’s name, and the boy saw he was naked and aroused, prosecutors said.

And the Sun-Times…

When Angel Pagan sent pictures of his uncircumcised penis to a member of the dance team on the social media app, he added the hashtag “teamskin,” Cook County prosecutors said Thursday.

Again what is it with teachers using Snapchat to get in trouble with students. Just because someone is a teacher doesn’t mean they’re smart enough to know that pictures from Snapchat don’t always disappear.

Kip Kinkel to use Supreme Court ruling to appeal sentence, second verse same as the first

Kip Kinkel

Kip Kinkel

Late last month the US Supreme Court reaffirmed its earlier ruling that automatic life sentences without parole for teens was unconstitutional. This re-ruling has caused the attorney for Kip Kinkel to appeal the 115 year sentence a then 15-year-old Kinkel received for the 1998 murder of his parents and shooting killing two at Thurston High School in Oregon. The problem we’ve been here before.

In 2013 Kinkel tried to appeal his sentence after the Supreme Court made their initial ruling in 2012. is appeal was denied then because his sentence was not a mandatory life sentence. Kinkel entered into a plea deal of 25 years however the sentencing judge added 40 months for each charge of attempted murder which there were 25 charges. While I’m far from a legal expert I fail to see what’s changed in the last three years.

As far as I’m concerned Kinkel is the only school shooter who got a sentence close to what he deserved.

La Loche gunman was allegedly teased

Dene High School at the La Loche Community School

Dene High School at the La Loche Community School

Again my apologies for being so late on this, as I mentioned in my previous post I was taking a mental break from working on the website but I’m back now.

In the days following the shooting at Dene High School in La Loche, Saskatchewan, The National Post reported that the gunman, who is said to have killed four, had been teased and bullied.

Perry Herman, who also knows the accused, said the teen was teased about his large ears.

“So many of those times that those boys joked around with him about his ears and whatnot, he didn’t get up and say, `You boys stop talking to me like this, it’s hurting my feelings.’ He just bottled it up.”

Herman said the bullying must have been going on for a long time.

Did he strike out at his bullies? It doesn’t seem likely…

“He once said that, ‘Some day I’m going to eff-up (the bully). I’m going to beat him up. He said that like a couple times,’ ” said Janvier.

Instead he killed two brothers, who have been rumored to be related to the gunman, and two school employees. Did this accomplish anything for him? Will any shooting no matter how violent ever stop bullying? For close to 20 years now those answers are still no. Bullying will always occur in our schools and yes I do know how traumatic bullying can be, however mass murder is not the proper response. No sympathy should be shown toward this kid. Instead of doing something to help his situation or bring attention to it he’s become just another killer to be profiled so schools can be more concerned about finding the next shooter instead of offering assistance to the bullied.

Kik used by Va. Tech student in murder of teen

David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers

David Eisenhauer and Natalie Keepers

I’ve been taking mental break from the website for the past week or so but I read something tonight that demanded my attention.

I’m sure a lot of you have heard about the murder of 13-year-old Nicole Lovell of Blacksburg, Virginia. She went missing last Wednesday after sneaking out of her house. Her body was later found across the border into North Carolina. Police believe that she was allegedly stabbed to death by 18-year-old Virginia Tech student David Eisenhauer. Also arrested was 19-year-old Natalie Keepers who is being charged with being an accessory to first-degree murder and helping dispose of Nicole’s body.

It’s believed that Eisenhauer met and communicated with Nicole through the smart phone messaging app Kik. Unfortunately that makes a lot of sense to me. For the past few years I’ve been posting just some of the examples of how Kik is used by sex offenders and pedophiles. Nicole, by all accounts, was a very vulnerable child. She was bullied not only in school but also online. She had survived several health scares when she was much younger, one of which left her with a visible scar. She seemed to be insecure about her looks and looked for approval online. That’s fertile ground for any kind of online predator. They live to prey upon the insecurities of their victims. Nicole honestly believed that Eisenhauer was her boyfriend.

The thing is any girl could have been Eisenhauer’s victim or the victim of another predator. There’s no profile for the type of victims on Kik. They can be smart, popular, cool, nerdy, loners or what have you. What I’m trying to say is that any kid using Kik is a potential victim. Have a talk with your kids. Let them know that if someone that old is showing ‘romantic’ interest in them it’s more than likely not for a good reason. And above all else educate yourself on these smart phone and tablet apps. Even if a cell phone is inactive it can still use a wi-fi signal to connect to these apps.

When I was young my parents could afford to be technologically illiterate and let the VCR flash 12:00. In today’s world where there are so many online avenues to your kids that luxury no longer exists.

One suspect dead, another wanted in craigslist home invasion

craigslistbanner

It seems that even the bad guys aren’t safe on craigslist anymore solidifying its wild west comparison.

In Littleton, Colorado, one suspect is dead and another is on the run after a home invasion gone wrong. A man had advertised something for sale on craigslist and two men showed up at his house and tied him up. They tired stealing the man’s cars but the man freed himself, retrieved his own gun and shot one of the suspects that was trying to steal his SUV. The other suspect got away in a gold 90’s Ford Mustang. The Mustang has been retrieved but the suspect is still at large.

The Sheriff’s Office is still searching for a Hispanic male in his forties. Anyone with information regarding this crime is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office tip line at 303-271-5612 or Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867).

So far no charges have been filed against the homeowner.

UPDATE: According to a Facebook post by another local man this may not have been the first time the home invaders tried robbing someone in their gold Mustang.

UPDATE 2/4/2016: The man who was killed is reported to be 38-year-old David M. Martinez.

The second suspect has been identified as 54-year-old David Ernest Mascarenas and he has been arrested.
