Yet another round of Kik Kreepers

kik

Police in Pasco County, Florida, say that 22-year-old Carlos Perez would pose as a female on Kik and would send photos of a nude women to underage boys on Kik and would allegedly get explicit photos of the boys in return. Perez was a high school wrestling coach and allegedly targeted two kids he knew through the wrestling program. of the school.

45-year-old Eric Jenney of Westfield, Massachusetts, was recently arrested after police say that he was allegedly part of a child porn ring that traded files on Kik. Investigators also say that the very explicit pictures were shared between adults and minors.

Remember, as I keep saying, Kik is a well documented favorite tool of both pedophiles and sex offenders.

Wash. man turned out his stepdaughter on craigslist for others to rape

Normally I don’t like to post stories where the suspects have not been named however this one is so horrid that it needs to be shared.

Recently a 56-year-old man from Marysville, Washington, allegedly admitted to advertising his 6-year-old daughter on craigslist for others to molest. He’s also accused of raping his stepdaughter as well and also faces child porn charges for allegedly recording his step-daughter being molested by someone else. Investigators say that the man may have posted 190 craigslist ads for the girl. One woman in Texas is said to have made arrangements with the man to molest the girl’s daughter.

Where was mom you ask? You should know better by now. Mom was allegedly in on it and is facing child rape and child porn charges as well. Investigators say she can be seen in one video playing on her phone while her daughter is being molested.

This is going on through craigslist all the time. For every one of these scumbags that are caught it makes me wonder how many are out there doing this with impunity. This jackhole allegedly posted close to 200 ads. It doesn’t sound like too many of them were flagged by craigslist community policing. Then again when you’re community consists of so many pedophiles how much policing is really getting done?

Another round of Kik Kreepers

25-year-old Carlos Javier Rojas Paz is/was a substitute teacher in Broward County, Florida, who is accused of ‘having sex’ (statutory) with three of his students. In at least one case he allegedly used Kik to stay in contact with one of his victims.

Another teacher, 33-year-old Patrick Newman of Louisville, Kentucky, allegedly coerced a 13-year-old boy to send him explicit pictures on Kik and then traded them with other pedophiles on Kik.

Kik, as a messaging app, isn’t inherently evil. It’s just another way for people to communicate. However as discussed before it has become a fundamental tool used by online predators. I advise every parent out there to see if their child is using this app on their phones and to find out who the people are on their friends list.

9 arrested in Polk County, Florida, child porn sting

Daniel Dunfee

Daniel Dunfee

Recently the Polk County Sheriff’s Office arrested 9 men in a child porn sting. Those arrested were…

Daniel Dunfee, 21
James Crawford, 34
Arthur F. Lee, 55
Steven Rivera, 26
Santos Palacios, 29
Eric Reynolds, 32
Roger Coulson, 63
William Humphrey, 24
Richard Murray, 22

Before we get into the rest of the sting I want to focus on Dunfee in particular. He allegedly solicited two underage girls from Illinois for nude pictures through Kik and Snapchat. One he got pictures from his victims he would threaten to post them online if they didn’t send more. This is one of the oldest ploys in the online predator playbook. It used to be that you had to know someone’s Kik username before you could message them but now there are several apps within Kik that allow you to meet other users and there are no age barriers.

If Polk County sounds familiar it’s because it’s my favorite police department in the entire country. Sheriff Grady Judd has been featured on this site for years for his dauntless work not only against online predators but also against human trafficking through sites like craigslist and Backpage. The pedo-defenders like to claim that Sheriff Judd is motivated by greed for his department through federal grants rather than duty and are incarcerating innocent individuals. I doubt that since between the 9 men arrested they all racked up 205 counts of child pornography charges. But please do tell me how these scumbags were victims of entrapment.

Ohio man uses Kik to trade child porn of his own kids

kik

Previously I’ve posted about how both pedophiles and sex offenders say that the messaging app Kik is one of the big weapons in their child luring arsenal. It appears to be popular with child pornographers too,

In Springfield Township, Ohio, an unnamed man has been arrested for allegedly using Kik to share child porn of his own teenage children.

The article states that he sent the pictures to both adults and minors so it makes me wonder if he was using his own kids to find other victims.

Now I’m not saying that Kik should be driven out of business or anything like that. Kik is just a tool but it’s the way that others use that too that you should be aware of in order to better protect your kids.

Kansas creeper sentenced on Omegle child porn charges

Kyle B. Rains (obviously lacking in the  B. Rains department)

Kyle B. Rains (obviously lacking in the B. Rains department)

31-year-old Kyle B. Rains of Park City, Kansas, was sentenced to almost 14 years in prison for distributing child porn on the webcam chat site Omegle. (Click here to catch up on what Omegle is.) Rains was streaming child porn videos on Omegle that contained scenes of a toddler being raped. He would then find young biys to target on Omegle.

Once again I have to bring up that one of the more popular searches to find this site is “Will I be arrested from Omegle?” or many one of its variants. That answer continues to be yes as once again the National Center For Missing and Exploited children (NCMEC) were contacted by Omegle when they discovered Rains’ child porn.

What makes me even more mad about this story is that there were young boys on Omegle for him to target. If you allow your kids to have a webcam in their room unattended you’re leaving an unguarded open window to your kids for every sick predator on the internet to use.

Ark. suspect accused of exchanging explicit pics with a 12-year-old girl on Kik

James Warren Breedlove

Do you want another cautionary tale about why you should check the apps your kids are using? Too bad, you’re getting one anyway.

In Bentonville, Arkansas, police arrested 52-year-old James Warren Breedlove for allegedly possessing child porn. Police in Bentonville were contacted by police in Wadsworth, Ohio, when parents there discovered that their 12-year-old daughter had exchanged nude pictures with Breedlove over the messaging app Kik.

Further investigation of Breedlove showed that he also communicated with a 16-year-old girl from Ireland, a 14-year-old girl in Illinois and an 11-year-old girl in Georgia. In total police believe that Breedlove received explicit photos from 10 underage victims.

I’ll keep saying it until I have a reason not to anymore. Check what apps are on your kids’ devices and check who is on their friends list on these apps. If you’re not paying attention the predators are.

NCMEC reports Kik child porn perv to police

James Miller

As I have posted before the Kik messaging app is a tool of the trade for pedophiles and predators. Not only is it used by predators to groom and lure kids but it’s also used by child porn purveyors to trade child porn among them. That’s not to say that Kik isn’t actively reporting such activity.

For example there is 40-year-old James Miller of Lincoln, Arkansas. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a tip that child porn was allegedly being traded through Kik which led to Miller’s arrest. A lot of times the NCMEC receives these tips from the website’s or app’s administrators as they have in the past from sites like Tumblr and Omegle.

So if you’re a predator or child porn perv don’t think that you’re not being watched or the app or website won’t report you because they will.

RI RSO caught using Kik to corrupt teen

kik

24-year-old Joseph Oakes of Coventry, Rhode Island, was recently arrested for ‘having a sexual relationship’ with a 14-year-old girl. Not surprisingly, Oakes was using the messaging app Kik to communicate with his victim. Kik has previously been called a tool of the trade by an admitted pedophile.

The problem with Oakes being on Kik is that he’s on probation for a 2011 child porn arrest and according to the terms of the probation he’s not supposed to be on the internet.

I still can’t stress this enough that as a parent you need to not only know which apps your kids are using but who’s on their friends list. Even a tiny device like a smart phone can leave a huge open widow to your kids.

Man sentenced for sex chats with teen that started on Omegle

Marckenson Chery

Marckenson Chery

Everyone’s favorite anonymous webcam chat site is back in the news again. 29-year-old Marckenson Chery, of North Lauderdale, Florida, was recently sentenced to 12 years in federal prison for having explicit web cam shows with a 15-year-old girl. Chery met the girl on Omegle and continued the shows using Skype.

Now here’s why I keep saying that parents should be aware of what apps are on their kids’ phones, tablets and PC’s…

By the time the girl’s father became suspicious and confiscated her phone about two months later, the girl had already participated in several video-sex sessions.

Her dad printed out “approximately 143 pages” of sexually explicit online chats between the girl and Chery.

Not to mention that once a picture or video hits the internet you can never get it back. I hope that in this case that Chey doesn’t like to share.

This story also answers a question that brings some curious folk to this site. Not only can you be arrested for using Omegle with underage kids you can also go to jail for it for a very long time.
