Mom finds MySpace a harmful disgrace:

Check out this letter to an advice column called “Ask Amy”…

DEAR AMY: I didn’t realize the harmful nature of MySpace.com until I received an anonymous copy of my 16-year-old daughter’s MySpace page. She thought it was “just fun and games” when she posted provocative pictures on her home page. I was shocked when I read her Web space, which was tame by comparison to other kids from our community who have posted lewd pictures with profane comments for the world to see! I’ll be monitoring my daughter’s activity, if not deleting it altogether, but what about the parents who are unaware of this Web site? What has our culture degenerated to when photos of girls imitating sexual acts and wearing bras in the midst of boys are posted online for anyone to see? No wonder we are so concerned about predators. Our children are making themselves targets for anyone to exploit.

Saddened by Complacency

Rather than give the whole answer away I’ll just post the best part that should be common sense…

DEAR SADDENED: If your daughter is demonstrating such poor online judgment, then it’s time to take the “car keys” away until she figures out that those photos could affect her life now and haunt her well into the future.

Is that so hard for parents?

Sex Assault charges in Rhode Island

Man Charged With Sex Assault Of 12-Year-Old:

WESTERLY, R.I. — A 26-year-old Westerly man has been charged with having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old girl.

Police said Alexander Manso met the girl on line, possibly either on MySpace.com or Zorpia.com.

Police arrested him in a sting operation, after allegedly finding he had text-messaged the girl on her cell phone.

He’s being held at the ACI on two counts of first-degree sexual assault.

Police said Manso might have thought the girl was 16 years old.

“So thought she was 16” is the best he could come up with? Granted the age of consent in RI is 16. However just because something is legal doesn’t make it right.

I was unable to find his profile.

Mr. A comes through again and in a huge way as he has brought us a plethora of information.

First he brings is the story of 13 men who were arrested in a sting operation conducted by the Orange County California D.A.’s office back in February….

NEWPORT BEACH Thirteen men, ages ranging from 19 to 51, were charged after an internet sexual predator operation was conducted in cooperation with the Laguna Beach Police Department, Orange County Probation and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. A citizen group called Perverted-justice.com helped gather the internet chats from the accused sexual predators. All of these men were charged with attempted lewd acts upon a child under the age of fourteen. In addition, one was charged with possession of methamphetamine and a pipe. Another was charged with sending an explicit image over the internet. The child molest charge carries a maximum penalty of four years in state prison.

The facts on each of these cases are similar in nature. All of them engaged in internet chats with fictitious 12 or 13-year-old girls. Some of these chats stretched for hours and hours and multiple days. The chats detailed explicit, graphic sex talks including oral sex, masturbation and intercourse. One man sent pornographic pictures. Others exchanged regular photographs. One brought a pornographic DVD. Many of them worried about being detected by law enforcement and parents. Many of them brought sexual paraphernalia, cameras, food, flower and alcohol. One of the men left his own 13-year-old daughter to have sex with a fictitious 13-year-old girl. These men came from all over Southern California and held many jobs, including a law enforcement officer.

And of course Mr. A brings us the MySpace profiles of some of those arrested. Like Jimmy Miguel Varela. How prophetic that the song playing on his MySpace is “American Idiot”. Then there’s Robert Carlos Alarcia. And lastly Deep Arora.

Welcome to the Rogues Gallery boys.

***

Then Mr. A brings us the Google cache of the deleted MySpace profile of one “dragon7025”. Here’s what he had to say on his profile…

i am mainly attracted to boys ages 12 and under-yes i do have a small sexual attraction towards them, but i am against sex in an actual relationship with a boy-boys just need true love from the heart and thats what im here to give them-pure love like almost all parents should give their children

It is unknown if he deleted the profile himself or if it was deleted by MySpace. Either way he is just one of many pedophiles that inhabit MySpace.

***

Mr. A is almost 100% positive that these are the internet habits of Bruce Chute who I told you about here.

***

This next gem from Mr. A would almost be funny if it wasn’t for the crimes the suspect is being accused of. His name is Keith and here is his profile. And below that is a comment from his ex-fiance…

hi some of you might know me as Keith’s fiance well that is no longer the case he has been convicted of crimes that have to do with ellicting sex from a minor. Currently we are trying to find if Keith has bothered anyone else online in similar cases in order to press charges. Currently he is serving time in the navy’s jail. Anything you say to me will not be seen directly by him so if you have any information please send me a message.
thanks
Patti

I feel real bad for Patti honestly. Imagine finding out that your fiance or spouse is a pedophile.

Again we salute you Mr. A for all your hard work.

Another Hawaii Arrest

Another Suspected Internet Predator Nabbed:

A third sexual predator has been arrested in Hawaii while using MySpace to select his prey…

(KHNL) — It’s another frightening reminder of the dangers lurking on the internet. A Waikiki man is in police custody, accused of sexually assaulting a girl he met on-line.

It’s at least the third time in one month that Honolulu police have made this type of arrest. That’s three different men who are suspected of turning their on-line relationships, with minors, into sexual ones.

“The fact that we have three now so far this year gives us reason to be very concerned about it,” Capt. Frank Fujii, Honolulu Police Department, said.

Officers arrested Matthew Cargill Sunday. Police say the 29-year-old posed as a 16-year-old boy on MYSPACE.COM, and arranged to meet with a 15-year-old girl.

The victim told investigators the suspect sexually assaulted her in his car, near the U.H. Manoa campus. Police recovered the suspect’s car in Waikiki.

Officers arrested Cargill for investigation of two counts of first-degree sex assault, five counts of third-degree sex assault, and one count of electronic enticement of a child.

Court records indicate Cargill has prior convictions for indecent exposure, open lewdness, and harassment by stalking.

Since he was using a fake profile I was unable to find his MySpace profile.

This should serve as a warning to that the person that they’re chatting with on MySpace may not be who they seem and as a warning to parents to what their children may be up to online.

While doing some research on MySpace I came across the MySpace of a 16-year-old girl who claims to be from “Fuck, New Jersey”. So right off the bat I know I’m dealing with someone who has a ton of class. What also caught my eye is that her MySpace opened up with “Bang, Bang, Your Fucked. “RIP REB and VODKA 4.20.99”. So now it’s obvious she’s just another mutant. And then there was some more ranting on her MySpace…

For those who read how I like Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold I don’t care if you hate them because I like what I like deal with it. I do not also have to tell you why I am interested.

Again I ask do the parents not know or do they just not care?

Hawaiian Arrests

Another isle man allegedly baits teen victim on MySpace:

Normally I wouldn’t think that Hawaii would have sexual predators but I guess they’re just like anywhere else unfortunately…

Honolulu police have arrested a second man who allegedly solicited a sexual relationship with a teenager through the MySpace.com social-networking Web site.

The 33-year-old man was arrested Tuesday during an arranged meeting with a 15-year-old Aliamanu girl at the McDonald’s at 4561 Salt Lake Blvd. Detectives later booked him under suspicion of three counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of third-degree sexual assault.

This is the second time within a month that Honolulu police have arrested a man who allegedly used the MySpace Web site to contact a minor for sexual purposes. Joseph Colasacco, 30, was charged last month after he was found on Feb. 12 in the bed of a 14-year-old Waialae boy whom he had met on MySpace.

In the case involving the 15-year-old girl, police said the man met the girl online in November when he contacted her through her profile at MySpace, and they later exchanged cell phone numbers. Police said they met face to face for the first time at a military installation and from there began to have a consensual sexual relationship.

The suspect did not have a home of his own and arranged meetings with the victim at his friend’s home or in his friend’s vehicle unbeknownst to the girl’s parents, police said.

Police learned of the case in January when the girl was identified as an unescorted minor by security at the front gate of the military installation. She told military investigators that she was having a sexual relationship with the man, who worked until then as a civilian employee for the Department of Defense.

As a result of the investigation, the man was barred from the base, and he has since been terminated from his job.

Police said the girl had a MySpace profile that showed her picture and indicated her age. The suspect also had a MySpace profile displaying his age when he contacted the girl, according to police.

Police said the suspect served in the military in the 1990s, then stayed in Hawaii but has no residential address.

In the Feb. 12 case, according to a police affidavit, the boy told police he had met Colasacco on three previous occasions prior to the incident. On that night, the boy said Colasacco entered his house and came into his bedroom.

The 14-year-old told police he had gone to the bathroom and that when he returned, the TV and DVD player were turned on and that Colasacco had brought him two magazines depicting nude men in sexual acts and poses along with a DVD showing men engaged in sexual acts.

The boy’s father later found the suspect in his son’s bed pretending to be asleep, according to the affidavit. Colasacco was arrested and charged with five counts of first-degree sexual assault, four counts of promoting pornography for minors, three counts of first-degree electronic enticement of a minor and one count of third-degree sexual assault. His bail was set at $20,000.

With any luck The Goddess Pele will wreak her vengeance upon the evil men.

I’ve only been doing social media crimes for 11 days and I already have an anonymous source. I call the source Mr. A. They called themself just “A” but I thought I would name the source after the comic book character. They could be Ms. or Mrs. A for all I know. Anyway Mr. A a left a comment about Michael Ramos. Apparently it’s not the first time that Mikey’s been caught trying to solicit little girls.

Thank you again Mr. A and I hope you make more contributions in the future.

Man to answer sex with minor charges from four towns:

This scumbag has been arrested FOUR times in four different towns for trying to solicit young girls…

NEW BRITAIN — The Berlin man arrested for allegedly engaging in a sexual relationship with an underage Bristol girl he met through a Web site is scheduled to answer to the charges in Superior Court today.

Kevin Karbownik, 21, of Berlin has been arrested in four towns since December. He was first arrested by police in that town, who alleged the man picked up the 13-year-old Bristol youth and brought her back to Berlin to have sex. At that time, Karbownik was charged with two counts of first-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor.

Karbownik was also arrested by both Plainville and Bristol detectives in late January and charged with a combined 10 counts each of second-degree sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor and one count of using a computer to entice a minor.

On March 1, Karbownik was arrested by Farmington police officers who, after a lengthy investigation, alleged he brought the same 13-year-old “victim” to a construction site in town to continue their sexual relationship.

According to police records, though the relationship was probably consensual, the girl is only 13 years old and by law she is too young to consent to sex. Therefore, she is viewed as a victim in these cases.

According to the investigation reports from the various police departments, Karbownik met the girl on the Internet site MySpace.com in August. Soon afterward, according to records, the two engaged in at least 20 sexual encounters until Karbownik’s first arrest in December.

I hope he gets a rather extended stay in the “pokey”.

Indiana sex crime charges over Xanga

Local man charged with Web sex crimes:

I’m not just picking on MySpace, I’m picking on Xanga too…

MUNCIE — A Muncie man used his computer to lure a 15-year-old North Dakota girl into posing nude for him and then published the photos on the Internet, according to police.

Police this week arrested Ronald R. Karas, 34, and found computer discs in his car that contained nude images of the teenager, according to the probable cause affidavit for his arrest.

Karas admitted to learning in December that the victim was 15, the document said.

He also allegedly admitted — during interrogations by Muncie police — to publishing nude photos of the girl on the Internet and directing her over the Internet to perform sexual acts.

Karas had been under investigation by Fargo, N.D., authorities since Dec. 22, and is charged in that state with using a minor in a sexual performance and luring minors by computer.

Karas met the 15-year-old on a weblog known as www.xanga.com, according to Fargo police records.

The two apparently e-mailed each other and talked by phone but never met in person.

Again I ask, do you know what your kids are up to on the internet?
