Doctors claim that father of missing Giovanni Gonzalez is competent

Doctors claim that father of missing Giovanni Gonzalez is competent

Ernesto Gonzalez

It’s been 8 years since then 5-year old Giovanni Gonzalez disappeared. In 2008, Giovanni was supposed to have spent the weekend with his father Ernesto Gonzalez in Lynn, Massachusetts. When it came time for Giovanni to be returned to his mother, Ernesto Gonzalez never returned him and Giovanni has been missing since. After being arrested for Giovanni’s disappearance, the elder Gonzalez claimed that he murdered Giovanni, but authorities claim that there is no evidence that corroborates that story.

After having kidnapping charges against him dropped Ernesto Gonzalez has been held in a Massachusetts mental hospital. Now that hospital is claiming that Ernesto Gonzalez is mentally competent. This starts the process for Gonzalez to stand trial in the disappearance of his son. The next step is for Gonzalez to be examined by doctors from both the defense and the prosecution to see whether he is fit for trial.

As I have previously stated, I unfortunately don’t believe Giovanni is alive, even though I pray that he is. If he is still alive he us believed to be either still in the Lynn area or in Puerto Rico. I’ve included his most recent missing poster from the NCMEC below.

Mass. man tries to get girls in his van with Pokemon Go

Sketch of the suspect

Sketch of the suspect

From the interdepartmental cooperation between the ‘It was bound to happen’ Department and the ‘This is why we can’t have nice things’ Department comes this story from Bridgewater, Massachusetts. This past weekend a man described as being in his 20s, allegedly tried to get three 11-year-old girls into his van by asking them to play Pokemon Go.

He is described as a slim, well-built, dark-skinned male in his 20s with tattoos on both of his arms and chest. He was not wearing a shirt at the time of the incident.

Anyone with information about the incident, the person of interest or his vehicle is urged to call the Bridgewater Police Department Detective Division at 508-697-6118.

In this day and age, everything innocent unfortunately becomes perverted.

Kik kreeper blackmailed Mass. teen for nude pics

kik

Many years ago before I just had the one blog here at TTRR I had several and one of them was called MyCrimeSpace. It dealt exclusively with all the crimes that were happening on or though MySpace. Today I probably could open one specifically just for the criminals on smart phone messaging app kik.

In our latest incident 20-year-old Saudi national Abdulrahim Altalh, from Evansville, Indiana, has been recently arrested for allegedly blackmailing a 15-year-old Danvers, Massachusetts, girl into sending him explicit photos of herself on Kik. Altalh is said to have used one of the oldest tricks in the online predators playbook. He would pose as a teenage girl to gain the confidence of his victim. At first he is said to have started out asking his victim for a topless photo, Once he received that photo he would demand more explicit photos or he would send the pictures to the victim’s friends and family which in this case he is said to have actually done just that. At one point, still posing as a teen girl, he tried to convince his victim that she should meet a man named only as A.A. and have sex with him. Nice alias you came up there with Dillinger. The treatment from Altalh got so bad the girl even considered suicide as a way out. Instead the victim reported the acts to her father and police. Altalh is now being held on $750K bond since he’s considered a flight risk.

The reason that online predators use the same old tricks is because they’re effective. He may have tried this trick on dozens of victims before finally finding one that would take the bait. Also I shudder to think what would have happened if this girl did take her own life. Altalh probably wouldn’t have cared. It also makes me wonder how many girls have committed suicide after running into predatory assclowns like this guy.

Kids, I say to you only talk yo people on Kik that you already know in the real world and parents keep tabs on who is on your kids friendlist on Kik because as I’ve said before and will keep sating Kik is a veritable playground for pedophiles and sex offenders.

Suspect claims Boston Pokemon threats taken out of context

One of the suspects arrested in Boston for allegedly planning a mass shooting at the World Pokemon Championships in Boston said that the alleged threats of violence were ‘taken out of context’. Never heard that one before. I’m surprised they didn’t say it was just a joke.

As for being taken out of context please tell me how this is taken out of context…

bostonthreat

In case you’re wondering those aren’t airsoft guns. Not only are those the real thing but they were the alleged weapons they were arrested with, not to mention the rather large amount of ammo they brought with them.

I’d be interested to hear what the supposed correct context should be.

And oh look, there’s a claim now that 18-year-old alleged plotter Kevin Norton was bullied in high school. That usually makes me wonder if he was bullied because he was already an entitled psychopathic knob considering he couldn’t even handle being banned from a Pokemon forum without taking to violence.

UPDATE 7/31/2016: Both ‘men’ have pleaded guilty and were sentenced to two years behind bars.

Mass shooting plot thwarted at World Pokemon Championships

No, it wasn't Team Rocket

No, it wasn’t Team Rocket

I didn’t want to do this story. When the story first broke I posted a link on my Facebook page that said “That’s it. We’ve failed. The last one leaving society please turn out the lights.” However the more I read about the story and saw just how outlandish it was I had to comment.

For those of you who haven’t heard 18-year-old Kevin Norton and 27-year-old James Stumbo were arrested at the World Pokemon Championships in Boston over the weekend for allegedly planning a mass shooting at the event. For those of you who were curious like I was the championships were for both the card game and the video games.

It’s not like the pair had much of a chance because they were consistently bragging about it on social media leading up to the event. They allegedly posted images of their firearms saying that this would be bigger than Columbine, natch, and referenced another Boston Massacre. At the time of their capture the pair were said to have an AR-15, a shotgun and a cubic ass-ton of ammo.

While both ‘men’ were invited to the event the supposed reason they wanted to shoot up the place was because Norton was banned from an online Pokemon forum. Let me rephrase that in greater detail. An 18-year-old Pokemon player was banned from what was probably a message board, got so butthurt over it he wanted to shoot up a public event and convinced a 27-year-old man to join him. He was playing chicken with a message board moderator with guns. While this may seem a tad silly and they were easily captured there could have been a substantial loss of life…OVER A POKEMON MESSAGE BOARD. I don’t think there could be a bigger first world problem than that.

With each passing generation our society is becoming more spoiled, more entitled and less able to properly emotionally deal with some perceived slight without resorting to violence and yes I do believe it is a problem uniquely entrenched in America.

UPDATE 11/12/2015: Both suspects have pleaded not guilty and their bond has been set at $150K each. In setting the bond the judge stated…

“They can buy guns anywhere: Wal-Mart, Bass Pro Shops. … I’m not going to add a thousand conditions that are virtually unenforceable.”

Mass. AG’s office takes over local Backpage sex party investigation

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey

Recently in Auburn, Massachusetts, a sex party in a Holiday Inn room was broken up by police. The party was said to have been facilitated on both craigslist and Backpage. Some of that facilitation must have been prostitution since the alleged party organizers, Jon A. Lowell, 45, and Courtney C. Nicholopoulos, 39, have both been charged with deriving money from prostitution.

The investigation has recently been taken over by the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office. AG Maura Healey has been a very vocal opponent of Backpage stating the following in the wake of Sanisha Johnson’s murder

In a statement from earlier this month, Healey said, ““As we have seen through our office’s work, Backpage.com and the internet have become increasingly popular vehicles for commercial sexual exploitation. In fact, most of the human trafficking cases that our office has prosecuted specifically involve advertisements on Backpage. It is clear that Backpage must do more to end the kind of exploitation that is advertised every day on its site. Today, I am calling on Backpage to immediately shut down the ‘adult’ section of its website – a long overdue step that I urge them to take now.”

While Backpage is on its financial knees we need more politicians to keep pounding away at them until they submit. So far Backpage has been an evil that has triumphed because too many good people have done nothing.

Backpage prostitute killed in Massachusetts

Fisher and Jeune

Fisher and Jeune

34-year-old Sanisha Johnson, of the Bronx, was shot and killed while working as a prostitute on Backpage in Burlington, Massachusetts. Charged in her murder are 24-year-old Epshod Jeune and 21-year-old Derrell Fisher, both of Roxbury, Mass.

The pair was allegedly robbing escorts in the area as one escort who was robbed was able to tip police off to Ms. Johnson’s alleged killers. If this sounds familiar it’s because it was the same racket Philip Markoff was running when he killed Julissa Brisman after using craigslist to find his victims. The Boston media is already making that comparison.

Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey is calling for Backpage to shut down its ads for prostitution. However, Backpage may already be on its way out since the major credit card companies stopped allowing their cards, pre-paid and otherwise, to be used on Backpage. Currently the only form of payment they’re accepting is Bitcoin which isn’t exactly the easiest form of payment to use.

Will the attention brought on Backpage by this murder be the final nail in their coffin? One can only hope that will be a positive that comes out of this senseless tragedy.

Teen raped in graveyard by older Snapchat ‘friend’

Bruce Henrique

Bruce Henrique

Police in the Cape Cod area of Massachusetts have arrested 24-year-old Bruce Henrique for allegedly raping a 14-year-old girl in a graveyard. Investigators say that Henrique communicated with the girl through Facebook and Snapchat. They also say that after the victim told Henrique she was underage that he sent her what the article calls “multiple nude photos of himself in a state of arousal.” Ick.

It’s heartbreaking how the victim’s mother found out. She noticed her daughter was missing and found her daughter’s bike on the side of the road near the cemetery where she was allegedly raped by Henrique.

I can’t stress this enough, know what apps your kids are using on their phones and know who all their friends are on their friends list even if that means asking them who every single person is. Also parents please talk with your children and let them know that if adults are approaching them on these apps that they probably don’t have their best interest at heart.

Yet another round of Kik Kreepers

kik

Police in Pasco County, Florida, say that 22-year-old Carlos Perez would pose as a female on Kik and would send photos of a nude women to underage boys on Kik and would allegedly get explicit photos of the boys in return. Perez was a high school wrestling coach and allegedly targeted two kids he knew through the wrestling program. of the school.

45-year-old Eric Jenney of Westfield, Massachusetts, was recently arrested after police say that he was allegedly part of a child porn ring that traded files on Kik. Investigators also say that the very explicit pictures were shared between adults and minors.

Remember, as I keep saying, Kik is a well documented favorite tool of both pedophiles and sex offenders.

It pays to have a charity in Backpage’s pocket

An alleged accurate representation of what Backpage gives o charity.

An alleged accurate representation of what Backpage gives to charity.

Normally I don’t post links from biased news sources. One News Now touts itself as an American Christian news outlet. However, this article is spot on when it comes to Backpage escaping justice because of the outdated Federal Communications Decency Act.

Specifically the article about the lawsuit in Massachusetts filed by three women who were trafficked on Backpage while underage and why the suit was dismissed.

“It allows for service providers who make good-faith efforts to protect children from pornography, from sexual exploitation, and even prostitution,” explains Donna Rice Hughes, who heads Enough is Enough. “If they make a good-faith attempt to protect children, then they will have civil immunity from any type of prosecution.”

What good faith efforts are Backpage realty making? By good faith efforts do they mean getting a discount for using anonymous payment methods or having the head of a supposed human trafficking charity in your back pocket, or the part where they might try to move overseas to avoid US prosecution?

That doesn’t sound like good faith to me. Instead it sounds a lot like Backpage trying to cover their own ass while raking in a cubic assload of dough on the exploitation of women and children.
