Cincy RSO charged with seeking 10 yo. virgin daughters on craigslist

Cincy RSO charged with posting ad on craigslist for 10 yo. virgin daughters

Kerry Murphy

45-year-old Kerry Murphy of Cincinnati, Ohio, isn’t the first registered sex offender to allegedly ask for child sex on craigslist, but he may be the most detailed.

“I’m looking for an open-minded parent who would be interested in bringing their daughter or daughters by for some passionate play. You cam just drop off and pick up later, stay there and wait while we play, come in the room and watch, or if a mom you can even join us in our play time. I’ms safe, sane, clean, ddf, discreet and respectful. Will respect any limits agreed upon ahead of time, like no bdsm or whatever.”

“You will be compensated for your time. Compensation will be dependent on several factors. Age, experience, time, limits and your involvement. A dad in a hurry, with a lot of limits wanting to watch, a 17yo daughter that’s been around the block a few times, lowest amount. A mom with all day, almost no limits, wanting to join, 10yo and 11yo virgin daughters would be the highest amount. Looking to set this up at a later time, so we have time to talk, set limits, discuss involvement, etc. Please change this subject line to your daughters age to weed out spam.”

As you can expect, the ad was responded to by undercover investigators. Murphy is a registered sex offender, reportedly by his own admission to police, for sexually abusing his 13-year-old stepdaughter.

With such a blatant ad, there’s hardly any room for doubt as to what Murphy was allegedly looking for. This was on craigslist with no moderation or any kind of flagging, with someone just bluntly asking to have sex with children. The two things that really disturb me about this story is that craigslist does nothing to remove these ads, and that people care so little that this goes on through craigslist is they continue to use it. Would you patronize a store that was known to sell child porn? So why do you continue to support the Sears catalog of sex offenders. (Kids, ask your grandparents what a Sears catalog is.)

My apologies to FOX19.com for my liberal interpretation of fair use.

Pokemon Go and sex offenders: Next on Scare Tactics News

Pokemon Go and sex offenders: Next on Scare Tactics News

It’s no shock that I’m no friend of sex offenders, and if I see an app that is prone to abuse by them I’ll call it out. However, when I see an article that’s pure FUD that involves the two, I just can’t let it go.

For example, I found an article out of Florida from a news station that ‘revealed’ sex offenders that were living near Pokemon Go gyms and Pokestops. As the article explains…

They stop at PokéStops to buy items and at PokéGyms to battle each other, but those stops and gyms can be anywhere—including where CBS12 found more than 1,000 registered sex offenders.

Do you know where else there are Pokestops and gyms? They’re near schools, churches, libraries, museums, and businesses. They are almost everywhere. Hell, there was even a gym in front of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church. Unfortunately, in this day and age, a lot of these locations will inevitably be near a registered sex offender. That does not necessarily mean that registered sex offenders are using Pokemnon Go to prey on children. It would be incredibly stupid for them to do so since they would be the first person police would go to if anything like that happened. Personally, I have only heard of one instance where children playing the game were approached by a possible predator and that guy was driving a van. I’m not saying it’s impossible, just improbable.

Instead of letting children roam freely playing Pokemon Go, maybe parents should learn how to play it and join their kids. You never know, you may actually have fun spending time with your kids doing an activity they enjoy.

California caveman Kik kreeper caught with kiddie porn

Christopher Coates

Christopher Coates

Registered sex offender and possible missing link Christopher Coates, 41, of Carpinteria, California, recently pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to allegedly making and receiving child porn on mobile messaging app Kik. Coates is no stranger to the world of child porn as he was previously convicted of child porn twice and for sexually assaulting a disabled female at a home for the disabled where he worked. Obviously those ‘harsh’ jail sentences and ‘rehabilitation’ didn’t have an effect on this one not to mention his time on the registry. Then again he is just a caveman pedophile and our world frightens and confuses him. Sometimes when he gets a message on Kik he wonders if little demons got inside his phone and typed it.

Apparently it’s so easy to find child porn on a Kik that even cavemen, sex offenders and pedophiles can use it.

Skout skoundrel indicted in kidnap and rapes of girls

Robert Blaine Harris

Robert Blaine Harris

50-year-old Robert Blaine Harris was recently indicted for allegedly kidnapping and raping two teen girls that he met on dating and social app Skout. Harris is accused of luring two 13-year-old girls from Abilene, Texas, to his home in Fort Worth where he allegedly repeatedly raped them. Here is what one of the victims actually thought…

“I thought we were just going to stay with him a day or two,” the teen said in January. “He had other plans.”

I can’t stress this enough to teens on social media. If an adult who you don’t know is befriending you on social media and is acting like they want to help you they only really want to help themselves to one thing. Harris is also a registered sex offender who was convicted of assaulting two women.

skout1

Skout is best described as a dating app and 13-year-olds have no business being on it. In the Android Play Store Skout is listed as an app for people 17 and over. That is just a general rating like the movie or video game ratings. I would personally say that it’s not for anyone under 18. Know what apps are on your kids’ devices.

UPDATE 10/27/2016: Harris was sentenced to 14 years behind bars.

Pa. RSO posted child porn to Tumblr

James Clemens Jr.

James Clemens Jr.

26-year-old James Clemens Jr. of Taylor, Pennsylvania, is a registered sex offender who was recently arrested for allegedly posting child porn to Tumblr. Clemens pleaded guilty in 2011 to bad-touching some kids at a church picnic. He’s also charged with not registering his Tumblr account with the state like I’m sure all sex offenders do.

How about instead of putting them on a registry we keep them in jail with real sentences. That will keep them from re-offending for a while.

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.

Kik kreeper asked 11-year-old for pics of 6-year-old

Timothy Walker

Timothy Walker

26-year-old Timothy Walker seems to fit the nomenclature of both sex offender and pedophile that seem to be so prevalent on the smart phone messaging app Kik. Walker was arrested for allegedly trying to solicit explicit pictures from an 11-year-old boy in Murfreesboro. Not only that but police say that Walker also tried to get the 11-year-old to send him explicit pictures of the boy’s 6-year-old sister. The NewsChannel 5 article states that the boy’s parents found photos on the boy’s phone but doesn’t elaborate on what kind of pictures they were. Since police say that Walker was posing as a child on Kik he may have sent the boy child porn. Walker is also a registered sex offender but the article is unclear as to what his prior offense was.

I know they probably don’t feel that great right now but hats off to the parents about being proactive with their kid’s phone. No 11-year-old needs to be on Kik no matter how many of their friends might be.

Police believe there may be more victims and are using Walker’s phone to possibly track down more suspects since Kik is an active trading place of child porn.

Here are some great tips on how to work the parental controls on iOS devices and here are some parental tips for Android devices.

Knowledge is power and you can use that power to protect your kids from online predators.

Indiana man indicted for assaulting NJ girl he met on Omegle

Joshua Elkins

Joshua Elkins

32-year-old Joshua Elkins, of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was recently indicted for allegedly sexually assaulting a then 15-year-old girl from Bergen County, New Jersey, that he met on the video chat site Omegle. Elkins was arrested back in 2013 after making the ten-hour drive from Indiana to New Jersey.

Elkins is also a registered sex offender from a previous conviction of sexual misconduct with a minor.

As I’ve stated previously one of the main problems with Omegle is that all you need to access it is any camera enabled device and an internet connection. That means phones, tablets and computers can all be used to log on to Omegle. To their credit Omegle does report some of the offenders they find to law enforcement but for the most part it’s up to the parents of these kids to make sure they’re not allowing these sexual predators into their lives.

Kik kreeper busted for child porn also kept woman prisoner as sex slave

Calvin Patrick

Calvin Patrick

34-year-old Calvin Patrick of Mt. Morris, New York, was recently charged for allegedly displaying child porn through his Kik messaging account. He is also believed to have been in contact with minor girls from other states.

What makes Patrick so reprehensible is not just the child porn charges but the child porn was probably discovered while he was being investigated after he was arrested for allegedly holding a woman prisoner repeatedly raping her for months. Unfortunately as the old slogan goes, but wait, there’s more.

Patrick was supposedly a level one sex offender. Level ones are considered the least likely to offend, in theory. Obviously that was not the case with Patrick since he went from pleading guilty to child porn possession in 2008 to not only torturing his victim for months but according to reports he was said to have been talking to an 11-year-old girl on Kik and commenting to a witness about how he wanted to keep the girl locked up.

Sadly it appears that keeping victims imprisoned is becoming a trend for Kik kreepers.

As usual, and it’s a shame we have to call this usual, this is the type of story that your kids need to see in order to understand the consequences for talking to adult strangers not only on Kik but any social or messaging app.

Lastly this should show that there should be no ‘levels’ when it comes to sex offenders and pedophiles. I’m reminded of Michael Jacques of Vermont from back in the MySpace days. He raped and killed his own niece, Brooke Bennett. He was also a sex offender who completed a ‘program’ in order to get an early release from prison. There’s only one level of sex offender and they’re all capable of committing barbaric atrocities such as this.

RSO offered runaway girls “whatever u need” if “you help me” on craigslist

Raymond Andrew Berg

Raymond Andrew Berg

Minneapolis police say that registered sex offender Raymond Andrew Berg allegedly placed an ad on craigslist that seemed to be targeted to homeless or runaway girls.

According to the criminal complaint, the Minneapolis Police Department got a tip about the ad on Saturday, Nov. 7, which said, “Homeless? Had a fight with parents or bf? Need a place to stay tonight?” The ad offered free rent, rides, food and “whatever u need” if “you help me,” according to the complaint.

Police responded to the ad posing as a 15-year-old girl where police say he asked the girl for phone sex. I guess his intentions weren’t just for helping someone off the street. Berg was arrested at a pre-determined meeting place.

As I said recently that this is an everyday occurrence on craigslist and they refuse to do anything about it. While this time there was no actual girl that doesn’t mean that victims are being preyed upon every day by people like this on craigslist. Do they all have to be 4-years-old for anyone to care?
