Kik kreeper caught in Arkansas with diapers and dog collar

Kik kreeper caught in Arkansas with diapers and dog collar
Randy James Myers

32-year-old Randy James Myers, of Honeybrook, Pennsylvania, was arrested after traveling from Bismarck, North Dakota to Conway, Arkansas, in order to allegedly meet an 11-year-old and 14-year-old for sex. According to Google Maps, that’s a 17 hour drive of over 1100 miles. Myers is said to have used the mobile messaging app Kik in a chat room entitled “Incest Family Fun” to make these arrangements.

Thankfully the person he was actually talking to was a Faulkner County Sheriffs Office investigator. At the time of his arrest police say that Myers was in possession of the following

…multiple sex toys, including a ball gag, rope, sex wrap, restraints, diapers, leash, dog collar, lotions and lubes.

Remember, he allegedly intended to use those on children ages 11-14.

It’s no secret that Kik is full of sex offenders and pedophiles and I’ve been letting Kik off lightly until now. If they are hosting chat rooms called “Incest Family Fun” then they need to start tending to their own yard, so to speak. They definitely need more monitoring in shutting these rooms down.

UPDATE 12/1/2016: Authorities are now saying that Myers could be facing an additional one hundred (100) charges of child porn possession.

Kik kreeper teacher said sex with boys is fun

Evan Ballowe
Evan Ballowe

24-year-old Evan Ballowe, of Fayetteville, Arkansas, was recently arrested for allegedly messaging a 13-year-old boy for sex over Kik. Ballowe is a teacher however it appears that the boy he messaged was not from the school he taught at. Ballowe allegedly posed as a 15-year-old boy using the screen name of “Southern Guy”.

“Southern Guy” told the boy sex is “fun” and asked the boy if he could sneak out of his house when his parents were asleep to meet him to have sex, according to the report. The complaint also says “Southern Guy” sent the 13-year-old a picture of an erect penis and a picture of a nude white man laying face down. “Southern Guy” reportedly asked the boy to send nude pictures, but the boy told him his camera wasn’t working.

Now that’s a smart kid. Unfortunately not every kid is that quick on their feet. As I’ve been documenting, Kik is lousy with pedophiles and sex offenders. If you’re not monitoring your children’s online habits someone else will and it won’t be someone with good intentions. More than likely it will be someone like this who wants your kids to sneak out of the house before they abduct and molest them if not worse. So isn’t worth a little inconvenience to your kids?

February craigslist killing in Little Rock

Jeramye Hobbs

They say that April is the cruelest month but I think February may have just taken the crown.

Back in February 56-year-old Frank Steinsiek of Little Rock, Arkansas, was shot and killed by someone allegedly posing as a craigslist buyer for the motorcycle he was advertising. Arrested for the shooting and charged with capital murder was 24-year-old Jeramye Hobbs. Hobbs allegedly told police that he bought the bike from Mr. Steinsiek legally but police gathered other evidence that led them to arrest Hobbs.

My prayers and condolences go out to the friends and family of Mr. Steinsiek.

Again, no matter where you are or what you’re selling or buying you are taking your life in your hands by using craigslist. As I’ve stated many times, possibly the only safe place to make transactions is at a police station.

UPDATE 12/19/2016: Hobbs pleaded guilty to the murder of Frank Steinsiek, and was sentenced to 60 years behind bars.

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.

UPDATE 2/17/2016: Breedlove was sentenced to 25 years behind bars.

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.

Criminal masterminds from AR able to circumvent Backpage’s screening process for minors

backpage2

Recently in Fayetteville, Arkansas, the married couple of Doncouri and Sherwanda Wells were arrested for allegedly prostituting a 16-year-old girl on Backpage. To hear Backpage tell it you would think they have a foolproof screening system for these kind of ads since they claim to delete a million inappropriate ads a month. So how were the Wellses able to get past such a rigorous screening process?

The girl was found to have several ads for prostitution on the site, according to arrest reports.

Both Wellses had user names posting ads, police said. Both admitted using their credit card to post the ads.

Such a complex scheme rivaling of some of the greatest criminal capers in history. No wait, scratch that. That’s how every ad for an trafficked teen is placed on Backpage. So what exactly does your process entail Backpage because it’s obviously not working.

I don’t know if I’ve made this offer to you yet Backpage but I’m going to make you the same one I made to craigslist. I’ll give you the solution to all this then you can pay me a tidy consulting fee. Do you know what the best way is to prevent teens from being trafficked in sexual slavery on your website? Stop publishing ads for prostitution.

You’re welcome.

Suspect poses as craigslist escort service owner to assault woman

Loyton Francis
Loyton Francis

Man arrested for assault of woman who answered Craigslist ad:

Police in Conway, Arkansas have arrested 31-year-old Loyton Francis for allegedly assaulting a woman that he met through craigslist. How he met her through craigslist is a new one on me.

Francis, while using the alias ‘Jake Lancaster’, allegedly placed an ad on craigslist posing as an escort service owner looking for new employees. Police say that he picked up the woman at her home. She believed that they were going to dinner for an interview. Instead the victim says that Francis ordered her out of the car at a vacant field and tried forcing her to undress. Luckily she was able to get away and call a friend. Police were able to trace the ad back to Francis.

Not surprisingly Francis was out on release awaiting a federal trial. I was unable to find out what exactly those charges were but this arrest put him back in federal custody. Police also believe that Francis may have had more victims…

The department asks potential victims or those with information about the case contact Conway police at 501-450-6120, or contact the US Marshal’s Office in Little Rock.

Applying for a normal job on craigslist is risky enough. Applying for ‘adult’ employment opens you up to a whole other level of possible dangers.

AR man accused of raping MySpace girls, one is pregnant

Antonio Lopez
Antonio Lopez

Man Accused of Raping Underage Girls He Met on Myspace:

Not a lot of detail on this one but 24-year-old Antonio Lopez of Springdale, Arkansas has been charged with raping two 13-year-old girls that he met on MySpace. The article doesn’t clarify if it’s statutory rape or not but let’s face it, when it comes to 13-year-old girls it’s all rape.

To make matters worse one of the victims is 8-months pregnant. The article insinuates that Lopez is the sperm donor.

If the child isn’t given up for adoption imagine trying to explain that to the child. “Well, your father (statutory?) raped me when I was 13.”

Again parents, if you don’t monitor your kids’ online activity this could be just one of many horrible fates that could await them.

18 Attorneys General call for the shutdown of craigslist’s adult services but one is missing

jimbuckmaster

AGs Call for End of Craigslist Adult Services:

Attorneys general target Craigslist:

Missouri AG Chris Koster joins other attorneys general asking Craigslist to remove adult ads:

Ohio AG: Craigslist should drop adult services:

Tennessee AG joins in call on Craigslist to eliminate adult services section:

AGs demand Craigslist drop adult services section:

Gansler among 17 state AGs calling for Craigslist to drop adult services:

Kansas AG Asks Craigslist To Remove Adult Ads:

In case you couldn’t tell this is big news.

18 U.S. State Attorneys General have called for craigslist to shut down the adult services section. Among those are Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, Martha Coakley of Massachusetts, Chris Koster of Missouri, Richard Cordray of Ohio, Bob Cooper of Tennessee, Dustin McDaniel of Arkansas, Douglas F. Gansler of Maryland, and Steve Six of Kansas. Not mentioned are the AGs from Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia.

Of course craigslist was quick to pay lip service to the AGs…

Craigslist supports states’ efforts to stop illegal exploitation, spokeswoman Susan MacTavish Best said in a statement that did not indicate whether the website plans to get rid of its adult services section.

Of course they have no intention of getting rid of adult services. Craigslist has a history of flying in the face of common decency.

While this is a big piece of news there’s something missing. It’s easy for these attorneys general to call for craigslist to shut down adult services. There’s only one attorney general who if he put his name behind this movement would have a huge impact. I am of course referring to former governor, former mayor of Oakland, current gubernatorial candidate and current attorney general of California…

JerryBrown

Jerry Brown

Attorney General Brown, we may be politically opposed in some of our views but for a man who cares about the environment and opposes the death penalty I would imagine that you would be opposed to the trafficking of women and children that is being facilitated by craigslist.

Craigslist is headquartered in your home state. In my opinion craigslist’s shameful record when it comes to prostitution, child prostitution and human trafficking is a black eye for the Golden State. If I can’t appeal to your heart I will appeal to your aspirations. How much of a huge political coup would it be in your current gubernatorial race if you got the biggest facilitator of human trafficking in the country to get that section of the website shut down?

Mr. Brown, I beg of you to add your name to that of the other state attorney’s general in asking craigslist to shut down the adult services section. Maybe they will listen to you.
