All Crime Is Personal

Brandon Neece

Brandon Neece

Investigators say that 19-year-old Brandon Neece hitchhiked from California to Brandon, Florida where he had sex multiple times with a 14-year-old girl that he met on MySpace. In case you’re new here to me that is basically child rape since an underage victim can not legally consent to sex.

Not surprisingly Neece allegedly claimed that he thought the girl was 20. Yeah, like we haven’t heard that one before. If he thought she was 20 don’t you think he’d be a little suspicious when the girl supposedly let him into the house through the window?

He stayed in the girl’s room for several days before the father found him. If they had paid closer attention to the girl’s internet activity they wouldn’t have had to have worried about finding him. Again I have to wonder if they let the girl have a computer in her bedroom. Kids should never be allowed to have their own computers that can be used where parents can not monitor them.

    It is hard to just say; “Don’t let underage children have computers in their room”, when all phones are now hand held computers. I suppose You could confiscate their phones when they come home, but what about outside the home? You give them the phones in the first place to keep them safe. So if they are ever in danger, they can call you right there and then. Not as if there are any payphones left. You are forced to have a cell phone. There was just an incident today where someone was targeting my sons’ high school, Connetquot High, Bohemia, New York, on snapchat. Asking for nude shots or else. Makes you want to rethink the whole “home schooling” idea.

    AND, by the way, this is the same high school involved with the Fry Cook Plotters and, if I am not mistaken, the McDonalds he worked in is right up the block. I believe he dropped a notebook in the parking lot detailing his plan. That is how he was caught. However, these criminals have the element of surprise on their
    side. You never know when or where. It is scary as hell and probably convinces some people not to have children at all, because you can not guarantee their safety and happiness.

    1. First off, thank you for your comments. However, you have to take into account that this was written in 2011 when MySpace was still a thing and not everyone had a smartphone in their possession at the time. As for 2019, you’re right. There is the risk you run when children are out with friends. But on the other hands devices can and should, in my opinion, be taken away at bedtime. Apps should be reviewed to try to make sure nothing illicit is going on. You can trust your children all you want but you can’t trust a predator who may be trying to groom them. No measure a parent can take is foolproof, but it’s better than doing nothing.

        Speaking of grooming, love to hear your comments about the HBO Special Leaving Neverland and Oprah’s interview. Also, reading along in your column, I was glad to hear that the Fry Cook Plotter is now all straightened out and doing well. Does this mean that this site is obsolete as well? I actually came across it when
        I was trying to get the whole story about what was going on in my sons’ high school. Although Myspace is not as popular, I do drill it into my both sons’ heads
        that predators look for youngsters on web sites. They may say they are a teenage boy or girl, but may very well be a 56 year old man or woman. Not to give out
        our address to anyone. Not to post pictures of inside the house. Not to EVER take unclothed pictures at all. I teach them; “say it, forget it. write it, regret it”.
        AND if anyone ever tells them to not tell anyone or they will harm them or their family, to notify me immediately so I can contact police because it is a crime.
        It does suck to pop the balloon of innocence and have to tell them these things exist. I do have blocks on all electronics.

        Have a wonderful weekend.

        1. Again, thank you for your comment.

          As far as Leaving Neverland goes I haven’t watched it and I’m not planning too. While my personal opinion is that Jackson was a predator I don’t see the point of coming out with this documentary long after he died. People already had their biases before it came out and I doubt many minds were changed one way or the other.

          This site isn’t obsolete but I have slowed down over the years. I am no longer able to keep up with every school shooting and plot that has occurred over the oast few years so I try to pick out stories about them that I feel deserve more attention than they’re getting. Plus I’ve moved on from sites like MySpace and focus more on apps like Snapchat and Kik.

          From what you’ve told me it sounds like you’ve done a stellar job with your sons. Yes, it is sad that we have to prepare them for such a harsh world at earlier ages but it’s better to have them prepared then fall prey to the dangers of the internet.

          Have a great weekend and I hope you stick around.
