Austin craigslist creeper offered free room and board to teen for “adult video work”

Joshua Rube

Due to all the breaking stories lately I’ve had to put the craigslist creepers and other predators on the back burner so I’m going to try to get these stories out as quick as possible today.

Anyway, 31-year-old Joshua Rube of Austin, Texas, has been charged with allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl that he met through craigslist. Police say that Rube placed an ad promising free room and board for someone who’d be willing to do “adult video work.”

A 16-year-old girl responded to the ad and is even said to have told Rube her real age. Sadly this was not an undercover detective but an actual girl who Rube allegedly had sexual contact with. The girl’s mother discovered the e-mails between Rube and the victim.

Since when is 16-years-old considered ‘adult’? This also shows that kids are on craigslist despite what the creeper defenders say.

Dallas Backpage pimp lured teen through Mocospace

If this was an SAT test it would be one of those sentences like Mocospace is to Texas like Pennsylvania is to MeetMe. The Lone Star State’s fascination with the social site/mobile gaming app continues.

32-year-old Ladarin Franklin, aka Bloodshot, of Dallas is accused of allegedly luring a 13-year-old girl into prostitution after meeting the girl on Mocospace. Franklin is accused of convincing the girl to leave home and turning her out for 3 months. Where did he turn the girl out? Why Backpage of course. Another criminal mastermind who got past Backpage’s defenses, or just some guy with a pre-paid credit card probably.

I can’t stress this enough to parents, know what apps are on your kids’ phones and know who everyone is on theor friends list.

As for Backpage the young girl who was forced to be raped by strangers for money is just another exercise in their free speech if you ask them.

California Kik Kreeper extorted pre-teens for pictures

Man uses threats to get young girls to send him nude pictures:

‘Sextortion’ suspect set for freedom:

Child porn, exploitation suspect ordered to home incarceration:

kik

25-year-old Brian Caputo of Arvin, California is a Grade-A scumbag, allegedly. He’s accused of posing as a young girl on Facebook, Yahoo Messenger, and Kik as a young girl in order to gain the trust of other young girls on these platforms. He would use aliases like Giavanna Derann, Catness Love and Melissa Harpson to convince girls from ages eight to 13 to send him nude photos.

Let’s stop right there for a second. While I’m sure the parents of the victims are horrified over what has transpired no eight-year-old needs to be on any of these services. Not even under the supervision of a parent. Secondly is this a thing that teen or teen girls send naked pics to each other? It sure as hell wasn’t in my day by cracky.

Once Caputo would receive any of these pictures then he would blackmail his victims into sending him more pictures or he would make the pictures he already has public. He tried blackmailing a 12-year-old girl from El Paso, Texas, into sending him pics and if she didn’t he would release the pictures of her 11-year-old friend. Instead the girl went to her parents who in turn went to police.

Caputo is not only accused of possessing child porn but trading the pictures he received as well. When questioned by police Caputo tried claiming that whoever was doing it was stealing his wi-fi.

So you think a predatory scumbag like Caputo would be kept under the jail while awaiting trial. Nope. He’s currently under house arrest at his mommy’s house where his underage sister was forced to move out. Does anybody want to lay odds he gets in trouble again before going to trial?

This assclown intrigues me so I’ll be keeping a close eye on this story.

UPDATE 3/13/2014: The courts have come to their sense and have revoked Caputo’s house arrest. He’s now being held without bond.

Will wonders never cease: Texas man confesses on the stand

Capital Murder Confession:

txlethal

Please check out the fascinating article by journalist Alex Wukman that I posted the link to above.

Do you know how I’m always saying just once I wish one of these murderous troglodytes would actually admit to their crimes? You know, like the ones who shoot several people in front of witnesses then please not guilty? Well it seems one man on trial for capital murder did just that.

Darrell Wayne Parker was facing a possible death sentence, in Texas no less, for the shooting deaths of his mother and stepfather, Cathy Youngblood and Charles Youngblood. Parker seemed to be the type who couldn’t keep his nose clean and ended up having to live with his folks. He got into it with his stepfather when Parker didn’t do some chores that Mr. Youngblood asked him to so Parker gunned down Mr. Youngblood and his own mother who just happened to have breast cancer.

Parker pleaded not guilty but while testifying admitted to the crime.

“We all agree you are guilty of capital murder,” Nelson Barnes, prosecuting attorney, had asked Parker. A “yes, sir” then stumbled out of Parker’s mouth.

I would have paid good money to see the virtual aneurysm his defense attorney had. Subsequently Parker was sentenced to life without parole.

Not surprisingly there are plans to appeal but those plans seem to come from his attorney and not Parker himself at least that’s how it’s being portrayed in the press.

As usual I’m not doing the article justice so I urge you to go read it in its entirety.

Our first Instagram creeper

Police: Laredo man sent sexually explicit video to El Paso teen:

Alejandro Xavier Marquez

Alejandro Xavier Marquez

I must be getting slow in my increasing age because I never thought of photo sharing and sepia-toned app Instagram as a tool that sexual predators would use to scout victims. Then again it makes sense the more I think about it. Kids are obsessed with their cell phones and its camera and are constantly over-sharing personal information on the internet so this should be no surprise.

On that note I induct our very first Instagram creeper today and he is 23-year-old Alejandro Xavier Marquez of Laredo, Texas. He’s accused of meeting a 14-year-old El Paso girl on Instagram and sending her a video of a man punching the clown through Kik. No word on if it was his clown. Still you can’t send stuff like that to underage girls.

Kik I don’t have so much of a problem with because you have to know someone’s Kik ID to message them. However, parents need to be aware if their kids have Kik on their phone and who their Kik friends are. Also now may be a good time to educate your kids about sharing too much on Instagram as well. Unless you want to be like this girl’s mother who found the clown punching video. No one wants to see that.

San Antonio Facebook predator gets slap on the wrist

Alleged Facebook predator takes child injury plea:

Facebook predator takes plea deal for 10 years probation:

Jeremy Andrew Martinez

Jeremy Andrew Martinez

In 2012 22-year-old Jeremy Andrew Martinez of San Antonio, Texas was arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. It seems that he allegedly lured a 13-year-old girl to his hotel room after finding her cell number on Facebook. He then ‘had sex’ (And what do we call that? That’s right, child rape) with the 13-year-old after she said no.

Late this past July Martinez pleaded no contest to the charges and received 10 years. I’m sorry I mean he pleaded no contest to the lesser charge of injury to a child and was sentenced to 10 years of probation. That’ll show him. I’m surprised his lawyer isn’t appealing calling the sentence cruel and unusual. What I really want to know is was Martinez’s lawyer that good or was the prosecution that bad?

‘lol’ and ‘j/k’ are not excuses

Texas teen jailed for Facebook threats to kill kindergarteners is on suicide watch:

Teen Justin Carter Jailed In Texas After Making Sarcastic Threat In Facebook Comment:

Justin Carter

Justin Carter

It seems that the collective internet has their trusses in a bunch again over a so-called violation of freedom of speech. 19-year-old Justin Carter was arrested back in February for allegedly posting a threatening statement on Facebook.

Carter is a gamer from Texas who was participating in a flamewar with other gamers when someone said to him…

‘Oh you’re insane, you’re crazy, you’re messed up in the head,’

To which Carter allegedly replied…

‘Oh yeah, I’m real messed up in the head, I’m going to go shoot up a school full of kids and eat their still, beating hearts,’ and the next two lines were lol and jk

Carter has been in jail since March since his family can not raise bail and he’s been placed on suicide watch.

As usual as both sides play hysterics the truth should lie somewhere in the middle. Being the grim spectre of truth that I am I’m here to lay it out for you.

First off threats are not protected by the First Amendment no matter how many lols and j/ks you put in front of it. In this day and age since Columbine and most recently Sandy Hook these types of statements posted on the internet should be taken seriously. Should Carter have been arrested? Absolutely.

On the other hand Carter is looking at 8 years behind bars. Why? Historically these kinds of threats usually carry a fine and probation. When the police investigated did they find any weapons? Did they find any ongoing plans to attack any school? No, they didn’t.

Now I’m not saying that he shouldn’t be held responsible for his actions. This kid did something dangerously stupid and will have the rest of his life to reflect on that but if the local Texas authorities want to save face reduce his charges, reduce his bond to something reasonable, and cut him loose.

Also parents you should use this as a lesson to teach your kids that it matters what they say online even if they are j/k.

Craigslist ad said “Incest is a plus”

Harris County man charged with online solicitation of a minor:

‘Incest is a plus’: Man tries to solicit sex from mother and underage daughter in creepy online ad:

Kingwood man arrested over online ad looking for sex with moms and daughters:

Jesse Michael Kibert

Jesse Michael Kibert

Police in Houston, Texas recently arrested 33-year-old Jesse Michael Kibert on charges of online child solicitation. It seems that Kilbert posted an ad on craigslist allegedly looking to have sex with young girls and their mothers. The ads were also said to indicate that incest between the mother and daughter would be a plus. I really need to get that chemical shower installed.

To make matters worse Kilbert allegedly told police that he’s been placing ads like that for a while now. That always makes me wonder how many times he may have been actually successful in fulfilling his twisted plans.

Sadly ads like this are not an uncommon occurrence on craigslist yet still nothing is ever done about it except by the police and by then it could be too late for the victims.

Houston craigslist creeper didn’t care what grade she was in

Raul Garcia

Raul Garcia

Man accused of using Craigslist to find HS girls:

Houston man allegedly took out ad seeking ‘sexy high school girl’:

25-year-old Raul Garcia of Houston, Texas allegedly posted an ad on craigslist looking for high school girls and not to tutor them. Police say he posted the ad from his work computer which basically said ‘Looking for any hot high school chicks.’ A Harris County Precinct 4 Constable responded to the ad posing as a 14-year-old girl. They traded messages back and forth. Some of Garcia’s are said to have contained the following…

But the 25-year-old allegedly asked the supposed 14-year-old if she wanted “sex on the down low” and if she would send him a “naughty pic.”

‘We really don’t care what grade you’re in.’

“I am looking for a sexy high school girl who wants to experience an older guy…,”

In case there was any doubt what he was talking about investigators say that Garcia also sent an explicit photo of himself.

I know I sound like a broken record (kids, ask your grandparents what a record was) but it needs to be said. This is the user base of craigslist, pedophiles and predators who use it as a kind of catalog to select their next victims. Still no one is calling on craigslist to monitor their site. No one in the media and no one who holds an office. What kind of hideous atrocity do the craigslist creepers have to commit before craigslist is on the hot seat again?

Another Mocospace assault in Texas

mocospacelogo

AUTHORITIES ASK PARENTS TO MONITOR CHILDREN’S INTERNET USAGE:

22-year-old Jesus Torres was arrested late in May in Brownsville, Texas for allegedly picking up a 16-year-old girl that he met on the mobile/social gaming platform Mocospace. The assault charge stems from Torres allegedly biting her on her lower lip.

As I’ve stated before Texas is to Mocospace what Pennsylvania is to MeetMe however parents from all states should be aware if their kids are using Mocospace on their smart phones.
