Update on if Kik kreeper David Bryan Poplin is a fugitive

Update on if Kik kreeper David Bryan Poplin is a fugitive

David Bryan Poplin

Shortly before the new year, I posted about David Bryan Poplin who is accused of grooming an 8-year-old girl from Pennsylvania over messaging app Kik in 2015. Since then I hadn’t heard anything about Poplin but an anonymous reader sent me an article that said he was caught grooming other girls in Argentina. He did some time in Argentina and was deported in October of last year but I was unable to find if he had been apprehended in the United States.

In my previous post, I asked if anyone had any information about Poplin’s legal status to send it to me. Well, the anonymous reader came through again. I was sent a link to a court document from Pennsylvania that states Poplin is, in fact, a fugitive from the law.  If the link disappears I have posted the doc below.

Hopefully, we’ll be hearing about his arrest sooner rather than later.

Again, if you have any information on Poplin’s whereabouts please do not post it in the comments but contact me instead. Any communication with me will be held in the strictest of confidence.

Again I ask that you do not take matters into your own hands.

Where in the world is Kik kreeper David Bryan Poplin?

David Bryan Poplin

Before we even get started with this story I want to stress that I don’t want this turning into a Facebook lynch mob type of situation. I don’t want anyone taking matters into their own hands. Let the police do their job. However, I am looking for some information.

Back in 2015, I posted about David Bryan Poplin from Durham, North Carolina. He is a registered sex offender who allegedly used Kik and Instagram to groom an 8-year-old Pennsylvania girl. After I made that post, Poplin became more or less an afterthought to me. I just assumed he had been arrested in Durham and was extradited to Pennsylvania. However, that may not be the case.

An anonymous reader sent me a tip that Poplin was deported from Argentina back in October after being caught allegedly grooming two 13-year-old girls there. (If your Spanish is a little rusty you’ll need Google Translate.) In Argentina, Poplin allegedly used WhatsApp, which is more internationally used than in the US, and Instagram to groom these girls and coerce them into sending him explicit pictures.

So, the first question is what was he doing in Argentina in the first place? Was he not arrested in Durham back in 2015? If he was deported from Argentina where is he now? The US and Argentina do have an extradition treaty but I was unable to find Poplin in North Carolina, Pennsylvania, or federal inmate searches.

So the question remains, where is he?

If you have any information on the status of any pending legal action against Poplin in the US or his whereabouts, please do not post it in the comments but contact me instead. Any communication with me will be held in the strictest of confidence.

Again I ask that you do not take matters into your own hands. I just want to know if Poplin is on his way to trial or not.

Omegle man brought a dog collar to a 15-year-old’s house

Omegle man brought a dog collar to a 15-year-old's house

Robert Alexander Kusma

33-year-old Robert Alexander Kusma of Scranton, Pennsylvania, was recently arrested for allegedly molesting a 15-year-old girl he met over Omegle. If you’re unfamiliar with Omegle, it’s a website, not an app, that encourages strangers to talk to each other. There is no age verification on Omegle and while their terms of service state you must be 13 to use the site, anyone with an internet connection and a camera can use it.

Kusna is said to have taken a full stockpile of bondage gear to his victim’s house including, but not limited to, whips, ropes, and a dog collar. He is even said to have used the dog collar on the girl after previously telling her…

…”that he was her master and he was in charge of her and was training her,”

You know, if you’re into the whole BDSM thing more power to you, but don’t push your fetishes onto a 15-year-old girl who can’t legally consent. I wouldn’t be surprised if this assclown was one of those guys who give fedoras a bad name and spend way too much time on Reddit.

To the parents out there, again, Omegle is not an app but a website which means if you’re going to look for it on your kids’ devices you need to do so in the web browser’s history. Since Omegle isn’t an app it tends to fly under the radar of parents and the media, however, it’s been a popular site among predators for years. You really want to keep an eye for Omegle since I imagine you don’t want some filthy lowlife dog-leashing your daughter.

He walked over to the small boy, then stepped over his body and fled

He walked over to the small boy, then stepped over his body and fled

Christopher Kuhn

27-year-old Christopher Kuhn, of Hamilton, New Jersey, is a heartless selfish bastard of the highest order. Not only did he allegedly cause the motor vehicle accident that killed his own 2-year-old son, but the reason he did it was so petty it’s almost hard to believe.

Kuhn was said to have tried to shoplift a soundbar for a TV from a WalMart in Levittown, Pennsylvania. He reportedly had his 2-year-old son, Qadan Kuhn, in tow. When security saw Kuhn trying to steal the $228 speaker, Kuhn tried using his son as a human shield to put distance between him and security. When Kuhn made it to the parking lot he put his son in the vehicle and took the time to put a sweatshirt over the license plate. What he didn’t take the time to do was secure his son into the vehicle in any way.

While fleeing the scene, Kuhn ran a red light where he was t-boned by another vehicle. The impact caused the vehicle to roll and his son to be ejected from the vehicle. Then comes one of the most heartless things I’ve ever read.

Authorities told CBS Philly that as his son lay dying in the street, Kuhn walked over to the small boy — then stepped over his body and fled on foot.

A 2-year-old boy now lies dead just so this assclown could get better sound out of his TV without having to pay for it. What makes you think you deserve to take anything for free? What have you accomplished in your life that entitles you to anything? It’s obviously not your parenting or domestic skills since you’ve been arrested for holding a screwdriver to Qadan’s mother’s throat while she held him. You are lower than vermin and didn’t deserve to have any kind of guardianship over that poor child who died in such a violent manner. It’s too bad that in Pennsylvania you’re only looking at a max of 40 years for third-degree murder charges. Hopefully the ancillary charges of theft, homicide by vehicle and endangering the welfare of children will keep you incarcerated for the rest of your wretched and worthless life.

If you’re so inclined, a GoFundMe has been set up to help with Qadan’s funeral expenses.

Thanks to Moon for the tip.

Pa. teacher accused of Snapchatting three students

Pa. teacher accused of Snapchatting three students

29-year-old David Andrew Borghesani of Northampton, Pennsylvania, was a teacher at a nearby high school. He resigned from his position back in February after it came to light that he allegedly sent pictures of his junk to three separate students over Snapchat. He also allegedly exchanged explicit pictures with one of the students so you can add child porn charges to that as well.

If someone were to ask me what was the most popular social app among teens, I would have to say Snapchat since it’s the one creepy teachers use most to prey on students.

UPDATE 10/10/2017: Borghesani pleaded guilty to sending explicit Snapchat messages to students.

UPDATE 12/1/2017: Borghesani has been sentenced to 3 to 23 months in jail. Not nearly enough.

Breeders waterboarded girl because they saw it in a movie

Breeders waterboarded daughter because they saw it in a movie

Dion Stevens, 34, and Malisa Stevens, 41, of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, are on the run from police after allegations they waterboarded a 12-year-old girl. The news doesn’t state what relation the Stevenses had to the girl, but obviously they had some kind of guardian role over the girl.

According to the victim…

The girl told police in an interview that she [was] dragged into a basement by Dion and Malisa Stevens, bound to a chair by packing tape, and had rags shoved into her mouth. Dion and Malisa Stevens then put a wet towel over the child’s face, tilted her backward so that her feet lifted off the ground and poured a bucket of cold water onto her, police said.

Thankfully a neighbor was clued into what was going on by the victim and notified authorities.

The Stevenses are even said to have admitted using waterboarding as a form of punishment and they had learned how to waterboard from a movie.

First off, what in the blue hell could this girl have possibly done to warrant such a tortuous punishment? Did she know the location of ISIS sleeper cell agents or something? Secondly, just because something is done in a movie doesn’t mean you have to do it. One of my favorite movies is Highlander, but you don’t see me going around with a sword cutting off the heads of other people in trench coats. People, and I use that term loosely, are the reason movies and video games get a bad rap.

While I’m trying to be less ‘pitchfork and torchy’ these days, I wouldn’t be too upset if the Stevens’ disappearance was the result of being black-bagged and being sent to Gitmo.

However, if any good can be taken from this story it is that the neighbor was able to reach out to authorities to get help for the victim. Again, if you see something, say something. It’s better to call and be wrong than not call and allow a child to be abused.

In Pennsylvania, you can report child abuse at 1-800-932-0313.

UPDATE 12/18/2017: Through their attorney in court, the Stevenses said they want their daughter back. The daughter is the victim in this story. Good luck with that.

Columbiner kills three in Pennsylvania supermarket before killing self

Columbiner kills three in Pennsylvania supermarket before killing self

(Story broke 6/8/2017)

24-year-old Randy Stair, of Dallas, Pennsylvania, shot and killed three of his coworkers at a supermarket in Tunkhannock before taking the coward’s way out. Stair was a columbiner, as he made a 42 minute film that was said to include homages to the Columbine cowards Harris and Klebold. Like most columbiners turned shooters, he was also a loser who blamed his problems on everyone else…

“I’ve been stepped on my whole life; not anymore. …I’ve had enough of this putrid planet and I’m going to leave my mark,” he wrote in the film.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Stair also claimed to be transgender, saying he was a woman trapped in a man’s body. I’m aware of the struggles transgender people face in trying to establish their true identities. However, that should not excuse the fact that this coward taking the lives of three innocent people just so he could leave his ‘mark’.

As far as leaving a mark, I don’t even remember if this broke the national news last week. I don’t watch a lot of TV news and I’m actively avoiding Facebook as much as I can. If I didn’t have an email alert registered for the word ‘Columbine’ then I probably wouldn’t have even heard of this shooting. His name will be forgotten in time, lost among the toxic throng of mass shooters that this country unfortunately produces on a continuous basis.

The names you should remember are 63-year-old Terry Sterling, 26-year-old Victoria Brong, and 47-year-old Brian Hayes. These are the people whose lives were selfishly cut short by a coward just for trying to make a living.

Being a columbiner is not a phase, it’s a sickness. If you know someone who shows the characteristics of being one of these failures, tell someone. Too often their so-called phase turns into real word violence.

Philly-area man almost kidnapped by craigslist date

Philly-area man almost kidnapped by craigslist date

Lara Mountz

(Story broke 4/19/2017)

It’s not only women who need to be wary of dates they meet online, while not as frequent, men can be victims as well. For example, there was a man from the Philadelphia suburb of Landsdale who placed a craigslist ad looking for ‘companionship’. According to him he wanted someone to ‘hang out’ with and go to one of the local casinos. Instead, his ‘date’, 25-year-old Lara Mountz, and two accomplices, 23-year-old Gabrielle Mountz and 25-year-old Marquis Lamar Smith, are accused of allegedly holding the man at gunpoint during a failed kidnapping attempt. Only by sheer luck was the victim able to escape.

Seriously guys, stop thinking with your pants region. Life is not like porn.
