Flight attendant charged with Phoenix Facebook rape of teen

Flight attendant charged with Phoenix Facebook rape of teen
Joshua James Kuhn

(Story broke 6/6/2017)

Eraserhead Chandler Bing up there is 24-year-old flight attendant Joshua James Kuhn. He is accused of allegedly raping a 17-year-old girl while wielding a machete. The victim went to the Phoenix apartment where Kuhn was after meeting another person on Facebook and agreeing to a date. Kuhn and two other men were also there. The victim tried to defend herself against Kuhn with a knife but Kuhn was able to disarm her. Kuhn is reportedly claiming that the sex was consensual and that ‘she said she was 18’, which is the age of consent in Arizona.

No matter how well your kids think they can defend themselves, nothing is ever absolute, and rarely do situations like that go as planned. Even at the tail end of their teenage years, kids still need to be reminded that not everyone they meet online is necessarily their friend no matter how nice they may seem, and scenarios like this should be avoided.

Georgia man drives over 800 miles to try to rape Facebook friend

Georgia man drives over 800 miles to try to rape Facebook friend
Kung Bik Cem

19-year-old Kung Bik Cem, of Tucker, Georgia, was recently arrested for allegedly trying to rape a woman that he met through Facebook, but the story is much more scary than that. Cem, and a friend, drove from Jacksonville, Florida, to Johnson County, Indiana where his female Facebook friend was attending a wedding. According to Google Maps, that is close to a 900 mile trip, clocking in at roughly 13 hours.

Cem reportedly approached the woman at the wedding and took her cell phone in order to get her into his car. Once in his car he drove off with the woman. She grabbed the wheel, causing the car to go off the road on the local interstate. It was then that Cem is said to have thrown the woman in the back of his car and tried to rape her. He allegedly told the woman that he was going to impregnate her so she would have to marry him. Luckily, if that word can ever be used in stories like this, they were found by an Indiana State Trooper before Cem could rape his victim.

I have a few questions. First off, who the hell thinks in 2017 that if I make you have a rape baby you have to marry me? Cem told police that the stealing of a potential bride was customary in his culture. What culture is that and when was it customary, the Mongol Dynasty maybe? Secondly, what was the friend’s role in all of this? Did he or she agree to Cem’s deranged plan or just think it was a road trip? Lastly, how was this emotionally stunted ignoramus able to function in society before making his road trip of rape?

Be careful who you friend on Facebook, you never know who is going to be a psycho stalker.

Chicago gang rape victim was threatened with pit bull attack

Chicago gang rape victim was threatened with pit bull attack

The 15-year-old Chicago girl, who was gang raped on Facebook live, was threatened with a pit bull attack if she didn’t comply or if she tried to escape. Of course it would have to be a pit bull. I’m not saying that pit bulls are inherently violent dogs, but it seems like a number of criminal types own them as some kind of ghetto/trailer status symbol.

In other news about the brutal assault, the 15-year-old suspect who turned himself in, was accompanied by his mother at the time of his arrest. It makes me wonder if the kid received a righteous ass beating by his mom before she dragged him to the cops. One can only hope.

Speaking of the 15-year-old suspect, his public defender argued that the suspect shouldn’t be charged with production of child porn, claiming that the 14-year-old was the main aggressor. Judge Patricia Mendoza had a very matter of fact response.

“The very nature that he’s in the video … one can assume he was manufacturing child pornography,” Mendoza said.

So far this has all been handled in juvenile court. I would imagine that prosecutors are awaiting the additional arrests and evidence before the teenage suspects are charged as adults. I can’t imagine them not charging them as adults as it would be a grave injustice if the alleged perpetrators were only held until their 21st birthday or less.

Arrest made in Chicago gang rape that was broadcast on Facebook, more expected

Arrest made in Chicago gang rape that was broadcast on Facebook, more expected

Chicago police have announced that yesterday they arrested a 14-year-old male in connection with the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl that was livestreamed on Facebook Live. The unnamed suspect has been charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault, manufacturing child pornography and dissemination of child pornography, all of which are felonies. So far, I have yet to see any mentions of prosecutors wanting to try him as an adult, but I can’t see why they wouldn’t.

The police also announced that they have issued an arrest warrant for a 15-year-old male they also believe was involved with the rape. They expect that individual to be arrested soon. Several other teens and at least one adult are also suspected to face charges along with whoever was working the camera at the time.

Sadly, the investigation isn’t going as fast as police would have hoped since the victim has not only been severely traumatized, to say the least, but as mentioned previously, she is also being harassed by people in her neighborhood. It’s also unfortunate that the people who viewed the video as it happened and didn’t call police can’t be traced. According to this 2015 article from the Chicago Tribune, there is no law in Illinois requiring you to call 911 if you witness a crime, which is sad in itself as everyone who viewed this video and did nothing should have to face judgment for being the heartless monsters that they are.

UPDATE 4/3/2017: A 15-year-old suspect has also been arrested after turning himself in. He has been charged with same felonies as the 14-year-old. Still no word on if either suspects will be charged as adults.

Chicago girl gang raped on Facebook Live, no one reported it, victim being harassed

Chicago girl gang raped on Facebook Live, no one reported it, victim being harassed

A 15-year-old Chicago girl was dropped off at her home on March 19th after spending the weekend with her relatives. Sometime during that Sunday, the girl went missing. She didn’t return home until the following Tuesday, but before she had been found, she had been gang-raped by up to six men as it was being broadcast on Facebook Live, Facebook’s live streaming service. Up to 40 people watched the video live and not one of them reported it to police or Facebook. A teenager was able to get the video to one of the girl’s relatives who took it to a neighborhood activist who contacted police. However, the girl’s torment did not stop there.

After the victim returned home, she started receiving threats online including threats of violence. The girl and her family have since been relocated to a safe place by Chicago authorities.

So far no arrests have been made but a juvenile was taken into custody shortly after the girl was found.

This isn’t the first time Facebook has made headlines out of Chicago with these types of crimes. Back in January, four people were arrested for allegedly broadcasting the torture of a developmentally challenged man who thought one of his attackers was his friend. Also, in 2013, prior to the advent of Facebook Live, a gang of Chicago teens raped a 12-year-old girl, then posted the video to Facebook.

Not only does Chicago appear to be a city that would make Kitty Genovese roll in her grave, but for many people it seems to be a living hell on earth. It’s starting to make Detroit look like a vacation spot.

Facebook refuses to remove hoax picture accusing man of child abuse

Facebook refuses to remove hoax picture accusing man of child abuse

I originally posted about the Cody Wright child abuse accusation here, back in December of 2015. For the TL;DR version someone posted an uncensored version of the above picture on Facebook. I believe the picture to be a hoax because there has been no arrest, no criminal charges and no mentions in the media in over a year. Even though there is no factual evidence to support the accusations, the photo still gets spread around Facebook like it’s gospel. People who claim it’s true can’t even agree where it took place. Some say it’s New Hampshire, others say it’s Manchester in the UK, some say it’s Florida and one person has even claimed that it happened in Manchester, Indiana. This story has all the markings of being an urban legend, born out of a false accusation.

Right now, a new round of infecting the less intelligent among us on Facebook has occurred, and this time it’s been shared over 500,000 times. Since it’s going around again I thought not only would I remind the Facebook zombies that there is no proof that it’s true, I’m also going to share my story of trying to get the photo removed from Facebook. I mean, we hear all the time about how Facebook is trying to fight ‘fake news’, yet they’ll let a baseless and possibly libelous picture that has the potential to destroy an innocent man’s life spread like a disease on their network.

First off, let’s talk about the numbers. The post I attribute to the first main spread of this misinformation has been shared over 43,000 times since it first appeared in late 2015.

The second post that seems to have spurred the latest rash of postings was also posted in December of 2015, and since that time has been shared almost 600,000 times.

I thought to myself that this has to stop. Surely, this picture violates some part of Facebook’s terms of service. Well, according to Facebook, it doesn’t.

I reported the first post as harassment and this is the reply I received. I removed the names of the posters because I’m not an irrational douche, but I digress.

Then I reported the second posting as inciting violence, and this was the response I got from Facebook.

So let me get this straight. Posting what basically amounts to a bounty poster and the picture of a severely injured child with no evidence to back up the accusations doesn’t violate ANY of your ‘Community Standards’, even though posts like this in the past have severely damaged innocent people’s lives? Yet God forbid you post a picture of a mother breastfeeding her baby and Facebook will bring the wrath of God down upon you.

If anyone is reading this, who has a decent heart, go to Facebook and search for ‘Cody Wright’ Manchester’ and you should be able to find the original posts. Please report them to Facebook. Maybe if enough people report it we can finally put these unfounded accusations to rest. Also, please consider sharing this story on Facebook. Maybe if this post can become as viral as the original picture we can get it taken down.

Lastly, to those of you who believe it’s true, show me proof. Not third-hand information you heard from the girl’s cousin’s brother’s roommate. I mean actual evidence, like an arrest report or news article. Until then, shut the fuck up, sit the fuck down, and move away from whatever device you’re using because you’re just making the rest of Facebook as dumb as you.

UPDATE 3/29/2017: I found another instance of the picture being shared. This time it had been shared over 100,000 times. I reported this one to Facebook as well and again I received the same answer.

Someone with more cache than I have needs to ask Facebook why this is considered acceptable by their ‘community standards’. If any one reading this happens to be a reporter or journalist, could you please submit a media request to Facebook asking them why they think this is the best use for their platform?

Read this before sharing a post about a missing child on Facebook

Read this before sharing a post about a missing child on Facebook

First, please allow me to apologize for the click bait headline. Hopefully after you read what I post you’ll see that it was necessary.

Facebook has replaced the milk carton when it comes to disseminating information about a missing child. I’m sure many of us have shared the image of a missing child on Facebook hoping that our post will help find them, but are we doing more harm than good?

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police recently issued a warning to Facebook users that sharing a missing child post on Facebook may actually put the child in danger. According to the RCMP the child may be hiding for their own safety. By posting the image of a missing child we could be unwittingly returning a child into the hands of an abuser.

That’s not to say we should stop sharing all images of missing children on Facebook, however we should consider the source of the missing declarations. Much like the false accusations that have been posted on Facebook that have ruined people’s lives, a number of missing children posts come from unverified sources. Besides police and media sources, you can always check the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as they have an extensive database of a number of the country’s missing children.

When it comes to sharing information like this on Facebook we need to stop for a moment and use our heads instead of reacting purely from the heart. That moment could go a long way in keeping someone safe.

UPDATE: Something that I forgot to add, but a Facebook friend reminded me of, is that sometimes these missing child posts can be severely out of date as well. When something gets shared on Facebook, it can sometimes be reposted years after the original post. For example, while it’s not a missing child post, this Facebook post is still circulating two years after its original posting with people still believing it even though there are no sources to verify it.

Facebook vigilantes humiliate man waiting for his child at school

Facebook vigilantes humiliate man waiting for his child at school

In case you needed another reason why you shouldn’t share everything you see on Facebook, a Kansas City man was humiliated on Facebook after doing nothing more than walking.

A black man was waiting to pick up his child in school in order to walk the child home. While waiting, he decided to walk around the neighborhood when a local woman pulled up in her car, took a picture of the man and said “I got you.” She then allegedly posted the man’s picture on a neighborhood Facebook page with the warning that her neighbors should watch out for this man. The picture made it back to the man’s friends and family which he says has left him humiliated.

This man says he just wants to put it behind him, but if I was him I would be pursuing legal actions to make an example out of this woman for being such a racist, and for spreading such bullshit on the already polluted pages of Facebook.

In the past, I’ve posted about how such posts have ruined the lives of people, and even caused one man to take his own life. If you know someone who shares unfounded trash like this on Facebook, consider sharing this or any of the other stories with them. It may be blunt, but they probably deserve it.

Phoenix Facebook fiend sexually assaults girl half his age

Phoenix Facebook fiend sexually assaults girl half his age
Felix Joel Perez Fong

29-year-old Felix Joel Perez Fong, of Phoenix, Arizona, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl that he was friends with on Facebook. He is said to have met the victim at a family party before continuing to talk to the girl on Facebook where they exchanged explicit pictures. Reports say that Fong repeatedly mentioned that he knew the girl was half his age. So let’s assume that the victim was either 14 or 15, that’s still under the legal age of consent. Apparently the age difference wasn’t large enough to stop Fong from picking the girl up from school so they could have sex, or as it should be called child rape.

There’s nothing that’s not creepy about this story, from meeting the girl at a family party to picking the girl up at school for sex. If you’re not careful, this is who could be talking to your kids on Facebook. While kids are more likely to be abused by someone they know, like a friend of the family, doesn’t mean predators won’t use electronic means such as Facebook to groom their victims.

Facebook defamation lawsuit should serve as a warning to others

Facebook defamation lawsuit should serve as a warning to others

Dayvyne Dial of Asheville, North Carolina, recently won a $500K lawsuit settlement after someone made disparaging remarks about her on Facebook. It really doesn’t matter what caused the feud, however, a woman by the name of Jacquelyne Hammond allegedly posted the following about Ms. Dial on Facebook…

“I didn’t get drunk and kill my kid.”

In 1976, Ms. Dial’s 11-year-old son died in an unfortunate gun accident.

Ms. Dial had this to say about the outcome of the settlement…

“I think the warning was out there to other people who have been victim to these cyber stonings,” she said, “that if it’s not true, you may not be able to get away with it.”

So before you go making unsubstantiated posts on Facebook calling someone a child rapist or a child abuser, ask yourself if it’s really worth having to shell out 500 grand.
