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?
