Canadian craigslist creeper said put the age of your kids in the subject line

Sex offender arrested again for allegedly targeting kids:

Frank Cunningham

Frank Cunningham

33-year-old Frank Cunningham of Newmarket, Ontario, is a registered sex offender with a number of infractions to his name. In 2004 he was convicted of sexually assaulting a little girl and in 2005 was convicted for luring a child over the internet. Apparently Canadian prison agrees with him because he’s been arrested again, this time for allegedly trying to lure children through craigslist. The way he tried luring them is downright repugnant.

Police say that Cunningham posted an ad on craigslist looking to meet single mothers where he talked about cuddling up with the mothers to watch chick flicks. You can see a picture of the creepy ad he placed on craigslist in the linked article. However it’s not the mother’s he was really after, it was their children since he placed in the ad “put the age of your kid/kids” in the subject line.

Cunningham did get at least one response to his ad, the local police posing as a single mom. They had been tipped off that someone had been posting ads like this in order to gain access to the children. Police say that they also found child porn in Cunningham’s home. At this time they do not believe that any children were harmed this time by Cunningham. They are asking for anyone who has come into contact with Cunningham to call them.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact police at 1-866-876-5423 ext. 7078. Anonymous tips can be left through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477, visiting 1800222tips.com, or texting YORK and your tip to CRIMES (274637).

Even still there are people who walk around with their heads in the clouds thinking that craigslist is still a safe place to meet someone. It doesn’t matter if you’re male, female, gay, straight, or whatever, craigslist is not the ideal place to meet someone new. The chances are too great they’ll turn out to be someone like this.

Toronto man charged with being craigslist date rapist

Eric Alexander

Eric Alexander

Man accused in Craigslist drugging and sex assault case:

Quasimodo over there is 48-year-old Eric Alexander of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Area police say that Alexander used craigslist to meet at least one woman in order to drug her and sexually assault her, or as most people call it, date rape.

According to reports Alexander and the woman went to a motel room where he allegedly spiked her drink before ‘sexually assaulting’ her. Since sexual assault has become such a vague term I’m going to assume it was rape. No word on whether or not if the victim was a craigslist pro but I imagine only money could get anyone to go back to a motel room with The Frog up there. That shouldn’t matter anyway because rape victim is a rape victim. And if she’s not a pro that’s one more reason out of a million as to why no one should use craigslist for hook ups. Too many creeps like this scumbag out there.

Seriously look at him. Makes me want to iron something.

Anyway Toronto police believe he may have other victims as well.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sex Crimes Unit at 416-808-7474 or Crime Stoppers at 416-222-TIPS (8477).

Craigslist isn’t safe people, not for anything.

Omegle trolling pedophile busted in Ontario

And by trolling I mean the dictionary definition (#2) and not the Urban Dictionary definition.

Chestnuthill tip leads to child porn arrest in Canada:

Ex-hockey coach busted for sending child porn to U.S. teen:

37-year-old Eric Ernest Cloutier of Timmins, Ontario has been arrested for allegedly sending child porn to a 15-year-old girl he met over the anonymous chat site Omegle.

Police say that Cloutier told the girl he was having sex with his 13-year-old daughter before sending her the video. Luckily Cloutier has no daughter.

The girl from Pennsylvania notified the NCMEC who in turn notified authorities.

Not so luckily is that Cloutier is a convicted sex offender. He served less than a year on house arrest and weekend jail for trying to hook up with a 14-year-old girl that he met online back in 2010. If you think the US is bad on how it lightly sentences child predators Canada is even worse.

When will all courts start treating these scumbags like the monsters they are and when will parents wake up to the real dangers to their children that are on the internet?

Prolific MySpace predator Joshua Threlkeld sentenced to 100 years

Joshua Threlkeld

Joshua Threlkeld

For once the California justice system did not drop the ball as Joshua Threlkeld was sentenced to 100 years in prison.

Threlkeld posed on MySpace as a 14-year-old girl named Sarah Miller to gain the confidence of underage girls then convince them to model for her ‘friend’. Some of the girls were molested by Threlkeld and some of his child porn victims were as young as 11. His victims stretched far and wide across the country and went even as far as Canada and the UK. His victims may have even numbered in the 100 range mark.

As far as I can recollect Threlkeld has received the longest sentence for social network related crimes.

It would be great to see even more predators like Mr. Classy Neck Tattoo get sentences like this.

Joshua Threlkeld

Man guilty of exploiting, abusing girls found online:

I’ve posted about 34-year-old Joshua David Threlkeld many times before in the past. To make a long story short Threlkeld of Orange County California posed on MySpace as a 14-year-old girl named Sarah Miller. Threlkeld would then use the persona of the girl in order to gain the confidence of other underage girls and would convince them that they should be models. That’s when Mr. Neck Tattoo would either get the girls to send explicit photos of themselves or he would take the photos himself pretending he had a modeling agency. Some of his victims were as young as 11 and his victims are said to be in the hundreds. He even molested some of the girls he took pictures of. Some of his victims were even from Canada and the UK.

This week a Riverside County court convicted him of 79 felonies. He is looking at life when he is sentenced next month. Hopefully California won’t drop the ball on his sentencing as there is obviously no hope for rehabilitation for this scumbag.

Canadian pervert convicted of Nexopia child rape

Nexopialogo

At least that’s what I wish the Canadian courts and media would say. Instead we get headlines like this..

Man lured underage girls over the Internet for sex:

Man guilty of underage sex:

First off the victim in this instance was 12-years-old. Let’s call it what it is. Either child molestation or child rape. 12 is even well below the highly controversial Canadian age of consent of 14-years-old that has since been changed to 16.

28-year-old Brian Allan Cockell of Edmonton, Alberta was convicted of what we would call child molestation of a 12-year-old girl that he met through the Canadian social site Nexopia. What the Alberta court called it was ‘sexual interference’. Seriously, what the fuck is that?

Cockell groomed the girl through Nexopia, communicated with her through text messages, met the girl at an ice rink, then took the girl back to his place where he raped her. You can’t convince me it was anything but rape. This went on five more times with Cockell knowing the girl’s age.

To make matters worse his defense attorney is arguing that the two years his client spent in jail awaiting trial should be enough and that he is “no longer a danger to young people.” Are you shitting me?

If Canadian legal history is any indicator I wouldn’t be surprised if this scumbag actually did get time served.

Seriously Canada, grow a pair.

And why the hell was a 12-year-old girl on Nexopia unattended, having a cell phone and allowed to go to an ice rink by herself? Get a clue parents for the sake of your kids.

UPDATE 5/14/2012: Cockell only got 9 1/2 years along with 27 months time served. So in all total he’ll only serve a little bit more than 7 years and will probably be released early. Pathetic.

Legalizing prostitution won’t solve anything

prostitute

Liberalized prostitution laws make life more dangerous for women:

Usually after I post a story about a big prostitution bust I get a comment from a ‘hobbyist’, code word for a john, that says that everything will be great once prostitution is legalized. They seem to think that once prostitution is legal that no harm will come to the women, no children will be trafficked, streets will be paved with gold and everyone will have a rainbow farting unicorn.

In Canada that’s currently a serious debate, legalizing prostitution not the unicorns. It seems that there is a good possibility that prostitution could be legalized in the Great White North. In the article I linked to in the Calgary Herald by Licia Corbella in which she interviews a former sex worker who points out the hazards of legalizing prostitution…

Timea Nagy, a former prostitute and author of Walk With Me, A Memoir of a Sex Slave Worker, says legitimizing prostitution and driving it indoors has not, and will not, make the sex trade any safer and, in fact, will make things worse for vulnerable women and girls.

“If the laws are liberalized, the police will have no way to go into these places to rescue the victims of human trafficking,” she said Wednesday from Toronto, where she was forced to work as a sex slave after responding to an ad in her native Hungary to work as a waitress in Canada.

“Striking down these laws will hand the victims on a silver platter over to the human traffickers and that means pimps are going to become legitimate businessmen and more women and girls will be sold, trafficked and victimized,” she said.

There goes the myth of consenting adults. The other myth that is always touted is Amsterdam’s infamous red light district. For that Ms. Corbella interviewed University of British Columbia law professor Benjamin Perrin…

“In Amsterdam, in recent years, they had to shut down almost half of the red-light district because of the infiltration of organized crime and violent pimps who profit from the trade in women,” said Perrin.

When authorities studied who was being sold, it wasn’t Dutch women, “who were choosing prostitution over medicine or law as a career choice.”

“Three-quarters of the women were impoverished women and girls from North Africa and Eastern Europe. Most of them were controlled through violence and this was in a place that had the most stringent forms of regulation that was supposed to prevent this kind of thing from happening,” added Perrin.

The last myth I usually hear is the one about how legalization will go to fighting the spread of STDs. Again Ms. Corbella goes to Prof. Perrin…

“So, the john is promised a disease-free woman to purchase and do with as they choose, but that woman, who these regulations are supposedly made for her safety, she’s not given the same privilege to know that the person who is buying her is not infected with a life-threatening disease,” explained Perrin.

There is no benefit to legalizing prostitution whether it be in Canada, The States or wherever. If you keep buying into these myths by soliciting prostitutes you’re only filling the pockets of modern-day slave traders just so you can pay a woman to forcibly touch your woefully inadequate penis. ‘Hobbyists’ are nothing more than pay to play rapists.

Prostitution ads remain on Canadian craigslists

prostitute

Prostitute ads remain on Craigslist for Canadian cities:

The Canadian government is saying that while craigslist has removed the erotic services section from its site prostitution is still running rampant on craigslist. According to this article some of the ads have migrated to the therapeutic services section. This is the section that normally houses ads from legally licensed massage therapists, the non-happy ending kind.

This has long been a bone of contention (no pun intended) with massage therapists. They have long been saying that it’s hard for them to advertise on craigslist because their ads keep getting flagged by those who are not so legitimate.

This just goes to show that craigslist needs to be moderated as the so-called community policing is actually a tool used to intimidate those who are trying to make an honest living.

Child porn bust reveals pedophile network on BlogTV and Tinychat

Tinychat-1

In London, Ontario, Canada their cybercrimes unit arrested one 30-year-old Jason Bezzo for allegedly having the largest child porn stash they had ever seen.

They say that Bezzo’s child porn collection was 700 gigabytes large.

Like a lot of pedophiles that get caught Bezzo claims that he needs ‘help’.

“I’m sorry this all happened,” Bezzo told McGrath. “And I hope to get help where I’m going.”

And of course we have a sleazy lawyer trying to defend this scumbag.

Bezzo’s lawyer Andy Rady said his client had a girlfriend until he was 19 when he suffered a head injury in a home invasion. He hasn’t had a relationship since. About five years ago, he became involved with child pornography and it snowballed. He was relieved when he was arrested because “he knew sometime he would be caught,” Rady said.

I think the help that Bezzo needs is more and more frequent head injuries but Bezzo is not the part of the article I really wanted to talk about.

During the course of their investigation authorities from both Canada and the US have discovered that there is a network of pedophiles that haunt streaming live webcam sites like BlogTV and Tinychat.

The network convinces kids on these sites to commit sex acts for them then the videos are traded on file sharing networks.

In case you haven’t figured it out by now your kids do not need a webcam. As I’ve said before letting your child have a webcam is like inviting pedophiles and predators into your home.

If you know of anyone that has kids old enough to use a computer please send this post to them. It could mean the difference between their kids staying safe or having their images traded worldwide between pedophiles.

Craigslist removes erotic services in Canada

canadianflag

Craigslist removes erotic services ads:

It seems that with no fanfare or press conferences that craigslist has removed its erotic services section from its Canadian websites.

I went to the Toronto version of craigslist since T.O. supposedly has a big trafficking problem and sure enough not only is erotic services gone but so is the adult gigs section. Casual encounters is still there though so Canadians can still look for children to buy for sex on that section of the site but I digress.

3 countries down* and only 100+ more to go. Hopefully craigslist sees that human trafficking and prostitution in all forms is a global problem and will do this worldwide.
