Preface: Warning:The contents of this article are not for the faint of heart. It’s disturbing, and not appropriate for children. Read it at your own risk. I originally approached my editors and publishers with the idea for this article because I feel most of our society is numb to things we should never let ourselves get desensitized to. The short version of the story is: they don’t feel their software offers a solution to the problem and therefore it’s too incendiary an article to publish just for the sake of shocking readers. I personally DO think their software is a great tool to battle what you’re about to see, but out of respect for their wishes, I’m leaving that part of the article out.
Peeling Back The Curtain
Forget what you think you know of the Internet. Forget the world of fun kid’s games and little Mary chatting with her friends online and watching Disney on Hulu. What you THINK you know about the Internet is wrong. What you THINK people do online – is wrong. I’m going to take you on a ride that will scare the daylights out of you, probably make you mad as hell, and I hope above all makes you concerned enough about your children to keep an eye on what they do online. If you can read all of this article without wanting to hug your children and then immediately go take a shower, there’s something missing in your DNA.
If you’re a reader of action novels you’ve read about those places where the secret-agent goes to an online dead-drop account and transfers account numbers for Swiss banking records to spies in China. You’ve read where the asset communicates to his CIA handler via an underground web site. You’ve heard about, or seen on television, the online child-smuggling rings portrayed in fiction programs, right? You’ve probably seen a movie where someone hired a hitman to kill their wife and thought to yourself “that doesn’t really happen. They’d get caught!” If you’ve watched any episode of NCIS-Los Angeles, you’ve seen where the bad guys buy and sell arms shipments over the net using untraceable accounts. You probably think that’s Hollywood fiction, or maybe the dark imaginings of a creative script writer. You would be wrong. You need to open your eyes. Chances are your fifteen-year old son can show you how to get to those sites in less than 60 seconds. I can, and I can do it with free technology at home. It’s scary.
I’m sitting at my home office writing this while running a virtual machine I’ll wipe and delete off the face of the earth as soon as I’m done with this article. The things I’m about to show you sicken me to my core and I don’t ever want to see a single trace of it again once this article is completed. In fact, to be honest, I don’t even want to be writing this. I had to consult three different attorneys to determine if it was even legal to write this.
To get where I needed to go to prove this to you, I’m bouncing my internet connection off half a dozen different countries and eventually leading anyone sniffing my trail back to Romania, which of course I’m not in at the moment. Sound confusing? No worries. Chances are your teenager can probably show you how to do that easier than I can. It’s really not that hard with the right proxies and secure tunnels. But you’re a good digital parent, so you already know all that right?
Why in God’s name would I be doing this? It’s simple… because just to see some of this stuff, just to prove it’s real, probably involves breaking a law or two in my home state and the only way to get to it to show it to you is to do so from another country’s ISP entirely.
What’s your point, Tommy?
I had a conversation with one of my editors a few days ago about parents, children, and technology. They released a survey to collect some data on what parents thought their kids were doing online. My personal philosophy is that the creators of the survey gave parents too much credit; assuming that parents today are in-tune with their kids and technology. The result; most parents assume their kids are safe. They really assume they are safe. The results came back so ridiculously skewed that the guys over in data-analysis had to re-crunch them again to be sure they were correct! How could something like only 4% of parents really believe that their kids are subject to nefarious people and harm online? Ninety-six or so percent believed the net was safe and that their kids never engaged in harmful activities. For God’s sake, Facebook is a harmful activity if it’s used by the wrong people!
Part of me wanted to stand up and scream at people, go make another YouTube video and just yell at parents for being so God-blessed dense but I realized it would do no good. It would just be one more Tommy-rant on my YouTube channel and no one would take it seriously.
That got me thinking.
While searching for recent media information about kids, the internet, and safety I was bombarded with the same old stuff you see every day. Today’s headlines included:
- Teen testifies that 71 year old man molested him.
- Police charge Juneau man with abusing girls.
- Hagerstown man sentenced to 2.5 years for molesting preteen.
- Female police officer creates fake Facebook profile to bully high-school girls.
Twenty years ago, any one of these would be headlines and we’d be screaming for the death penalty. Ok, maybe not for the bullying thing, but for the rest, hell yeah! Today, it’s nothing. Most of you won’t even see those articles because they’ll be buried under the important news such as “Mark Zuckerburg had a milkshake today” or “Somewhere a movie star is getting divorced for the 26th time.”
No one cares. Disagree all you like, but it’s a fact. If we cared enough, as parents and as humans, we’d put a stop to it and we’d do it with one voice, together; a voice so strong that Congress would have no choice but to stand up and listen and take action. For God’s sake people, we are the ones raising these kids. Our ONLY job in this entire world is to protect them from harm and to raise them to be upstanding adults. And we’re raising them in a place where the population of sicko’s out there is at its highest in human history and they’re equipped with internet communications, making them capable of stalking and harming people (not just kids) from anywhere.
So, while I considered writing one more article on the “Let’s protect our kids” vein, I decided something more drastic must be in order, since you people are apparently all asleep in class. Well, it’s time to wake up, folks. Put your big-boy britches on and bring a trash-can, because you’re going to be physically ill when I show you what’s out there.
Do you want to know what the Internet is really like?
You Want Drugs?
Go to Google and search for “LSD” on Google shopping. Don’t see it? Recently Google removed all guns and gun parts, and accessories too. Do you think that means you can relax? Here, take a look.
Don’t assume because YOU can’t find it in a five-second Google search that it’s not out there. What’s your pleasure? We can purchase you some premium LSD, heroin by the pound, or maybe you’re a little less hard-core and you just want some prescription Xanax? No problem. These guys will even combine shipping if you buy combos I’d imagine. Yup, you can quickly and easily buy illegal drugs online with no problem. What about shipping them to your house? Well, no! Duh! Read the instructions provided by the sellers that tell you how to have the drugs shipped so you don’t get caught. They’re provided as part of the marketplace literature.
That’s NOT a Photoshopped image. Ok, well technically it is. I removed the prices. That’s an online drug marketplace where you can buy anything from a kilo of cocaine to a shipyard container of heroin, depending on your budget. They even have verified sellers, so you know you’re buying from a “reputable” dealer! God forbid you get shafted on your purchase of meth-amphetamines! What’s the world coming to when you can’t even trust your drug supplier?
Yeah, you don’t do drugs do you, and your kids certainly don’t do LSD. Maybe they just need a fake ID for that night club they’re not quite old enough for, or to buy alcohol at a bar, or to drive your family Nissan. No problem we can order those too! I can even browse by state! Passports; yeah we can get those too.
Oh look, a combo card! How convenient! I can get a fake ID AND access to a public medical clinic for about $35.00 Awesome deal! Hell, I really DO need that! That’s better than what I get in real life for the money!
Oh, I’m So Scared (yawn). What’s the Point, Tommy?
Yeah, well some of you might not really want the true nasty version of what’s out there on the web these days. It’s likely we’d all prefer to stay within the safe confines of our web browser and pretend those news stories we’re reading about kids don’t’ happen to OUR children. Here’s a quick little thought to keep in mind; it’s never your kid…until it is.
Just for the sake of argument, have you ever considered what the sick, twisted, perverted examples of our society are actually DOING with kids? Let’s forget teenagers altogether if you wish. How about we think about what they’re doing to little kids; kids often too young to speak out or to even know out to speak out about the abuse they’re undergoing. Does sexual intercourse between a grown man and a six year old make you want to commit murder? Ok, let’s take it a step further then; how about a man-and-wife couple trying to decide what age is best for introducing their daughter to anal and vaginal intercourse? No, really. Is it OK at two-years-old or should they wait until three or four?
The Worst of the Worst (originally removed by the editors on their site.)
See the date on that message board post? That’s from August of 2012. This is a father of a six year old little girl, who apparently “has the body of an eleven year old.” Thank God this dad doesn’t go for six year olds. Wait… read that carefully. It says “she has the body and curves of an 11yr-old [sic] – which I *do* go for!” Not only is this man a pedophile, but this obviously isn’t his first time abusing little girls. It’s only his first time abusing girls THIS YOUNG and ones who happen to be related to him. So he’s not only a pedophile, but an incestuous pedophile at that.
If you’ve not turned away in absolute horror yet, let’s keep going. You really DO need to know this exists, people; for one reason only. You need to KNOW that there are sick and twisted people out there trying to get their hands on our kids! Read on.
Doing the Right Thing
Read through this from the beginning. This is a man who has been molesting a boy from the time he was four until the present; about three years. He’s well-spoken, probably seems normal to everyone in his community, and probably has a full-time professional career of some sort or another. But at the end of the day he’s a man who fondles seven year old boys seeking advice on how best to proceed with the relationship. You don’t see it here but I followed the thread to its conclusion; long enough to discover that the boy will probably be living with this man soon enough. His parents have no idea. His neighbors have no idea. No one has any idea. By the tone of the post, his parents might be assumed to be too drug-riddled to care, but someone has to.
If you’re the overly sensitive type, skip this next part. I’m serious. Feel free to scroll on down the page a little. This makes my blood boil and yours will too. I’ve redacted the worst of the language, but this will literally make your skin crawl and make you want to vomit.
Check the date on that photo; August 11, 2012. Somewhere here in the US (most likely, considering the use of vernacular) a couple are having “lovemaking” sessions with someone they’re referring to as Crystal, which we can assume likely isn’t the child’s real name. While we don’t know the child’s age, we can infer she’s three years old.
Let me say it again.
This is a couple of adults who deserve to be put in the most heinous prison ever invented and brutally sodomized until they eventually die of infection or starvation, whichever happens first!
What’s worse than the previous post? How about advice from someone who’s apparently an expert at abusing three-year-olds. Read his post in detail. He’s giving advice to the same couple from experience, even going so far as to tell, what he feels the best age is for beginning to teach a toddler’s body to accept sexual penetration. To make it even more gruesome, he’s apparently so experienced at it that he gives advice on how to abuse the child in such a manner as to fool a gynecologist. The mere fact that someone thought that much into it should qualify them for prison!
This stuff is REAL, people! These aren’t fake Photoshopped conversations, or images made up to generate a false sense of urgency amongst readers. This is absolutely real! I took all these screen captures TODAY! I was going to end this section with a screenshot of where you could go to download full movies of preteen boys and girls, but the truth is it would take so much redacting of information as to make it almost not worth the effort to show you.
The worst part of it; law enforcement can’t do a thing about it.
Who Will Protect Our Kids?
Some of you are ready to write your congressman right now. Others are going to want to call the cops or the FBI. Guess what? It’s not their problem. It’s ours.
It’s ours as parents. It’s our responsibility to protect our kids, not someone else’s responsibility to do it for us. Grow up and take a little personal responsibility for your own family. It’s not someone else’s responsibility to protect your children, and if you believe it is, you are just as bad as some of these people. It’s your children, people. Your own flesh and blood these people are out there after; the pedophiles, drug pushers, gangs, criminals of every sort. Our nation, as a whole has gotten used to delegating responsibility for everything to other people, other organizations, and other agencies. It’s the school’s responsibility to educate. It’s the government’s responsibility to protect us from everything under the sun. It’s the state’s responsibility to provide us with tuition assistance to get our kids into college, instead of actually working for it like we used to.
I didn’t go into all the other deep dark holes available to the viewer on the internet; the ones you don’t want to know exist. They are certainly there in full force. I can securely order underage foreign children for sexual slaves. I can pay for a kidnapped adult foreign national as well if I’d prefer. Apparently the trafficking markets are thriving for all ages. I can order drugs online. I can order chemicals to make bombs, or even weapons-grade uranium if I can catch the deals before they’re gone. (Nuke stuff apparently goes fast on the internet black markets.)
This last week in the news we had a former US Marine arrested for a posting he made on Facebook about wanting to incite an uprising, but in places like I just showed you I can find conversations on assassinating people, hiring hit-men to do it, or discuss bomb-making scenarios that involve over-the-counter explosives compounds that won’t set off US federal government’s Spidey-sense. After all, you can’t go researching how to build bombs to blow up office buildings from Amazon now can you? But there are places where you can learn here from the pros. Have you just been waiting for the right time to join a jihadist cult? C’mon over. I could show you page after page after page of things so illegal and heinous you’d have a hard time believing they really exist outside the realms of fantasy and fiction. Hell, when I sent this to my lawyer for proofing, he admitted he didn’t really even believe people actually existed that talked the way these people I just showed you do. He didn’t think that was actually possible. It’s the stuff of gross fiction novels, isn’t it? No, it’s not.
Some of you, especially the quasi-enlightened internet users amongst you, are going to comment and get mad and say the government CAN stop this. That’s ok. You’re entitled to you opinion as long as you’re ok knowing it’s completely inaccurate.
The truth of the matter is; it takes an incredibly large and intelligent team of security analysts using some super-incredibly high-tech equipment a lot of time and a lot of manpower to break into these online communities. They are hidden behind a dozen different security protocols, IP masks, proxies, and fake ISP information. Yes, both the CIA and NSA know about these sites and these tools. In fact, it’s widely rumored they use them for their own purposes from time to time, which they probably do. After all, it’s open-source code that makes it possible. And yes, they’re working harder than ever to stop them, but they’ll never succeed. (In fact, I’m 100% sure that just some of the keywords in this article probably tripped a few web-alarms somewhere in Langley, Virginia) You’re talking about places where the worst of the worst hangout; a distributed network that doesn’t reside in one building, or even in one country. The network that makes these things possible has tens of thousands of nodes at any one time, all constantly going online and offline, and all constantly changing address information just to prevent the normal joe-hacker from ever getting close. A normal police department or county law enforcement doesn’t have a chance.
Finding them online is easy. A twelve-year-old with Google can go from searching “how to” to being inside the network in less than 5 minutes with no training. They’re easy to find, to meet, to see, to talk to! They’re just hard to catch!
How to Protect Your Kids
Completely redacted. Unfortunately this part of the article had information in it that I thought was beneficial to the reader, but that the parent company didn’t think was. They have decided they want to be distanced from the article and anything pertaining to it. So, in lieu of that information, my advice is… well, I’m not sure what my advice is now. I’ll have to think about it and rewrite this section later.
Since all the mainstream media articles have afflicted readers with a desensitized view of reality, it is my hope that this post just might shock some of you to attention. You’re all numb to this because you hear a little about it every day, but I bet you’ve never seen it in this light until now.
This is real, people. We can’t protect everyone from harm, but we HAVE to protect children from some of the things I saw today while researching this article.
This is probably the most incendiary article I’ve ever written. I want to convey to both the reader and law enforcement that I most certainly don’t condone any of the things shared here today, nor does any other human being with any sense of morality or conscience.
I’ve been purposefully vague about some details in this article. You deserve to know why.
The thing I hate most is when something incredibly evil is revealed by the press who then tells you exactly how the criminals performed the acts they were convicted of. Well, great! You just told the entire world how to do it. Way to go!
In the interest of freedom of the press and headlines they sometimes endanger even more people and they do it because we (readers) want to know more. There are some things people (I believe) shouldn’t be told. If they’re smart enough to find them on their own, that’s bad enough, but it certainly should be in the forefront of our minds as writers not to endanger them by making it easy for them. There are enough sickos out there that already how to get to these sites without help that I’m not going to make it worse by revealing how I did it. Some of you already know and you’re nodding in agreement with me as you read this. Others readers will be the wannabe-hacker type that thinks revealing how will make you cool. It won’t, and if you do, I will just remove your comments anyway.
Further, there are parts of the Internet that are dangerous for anyone, not just kids. Simply by visiting a site you can both horrify yourself and generate a massive investigation by any government organization with the desire to prosecute you for it. (Yes, it can be considered a federal crime to go searching for ways to sodomize children, and it should be!) I basically just went online and found out how to molest children, how to commit the acts and fool a medical professional to mask the signs of it, how to find support groups for others who do it, how to find videos of the act itself, how to buy illegal narcotics, and how to purchase fake identifications.
So what’s the stuff I didn’t show you? Well, for starters, there are:
- Preteen and teen Snuff, Rape, Gore, Violence, videos and services.
- Teenage escort/prostitution services.
- Illegal arms, single or bulk quantities.
- Contract “hit”men/women for hire.
- And many more things you don’t want to know about
All of those I just mentioned were less than two clicks away from the pages I was on regarding pedophilia.
Lastly, the safety of me and my family is a concern. Pulling back the curtain in Oz isn’t always as gratifying as you might think. That’s why all the names and relevant information are redacted. It’s not because I want to protect their identities for their safety, but rather for my own. There’s a difference between saying “the internet is bad” and calling people out by name. The former just creates a minor annoyance in those communities. The latter can result in more serious consequences. While I fully endorse finding these people and beating them in the genitalia with a large hammer, I’m not likely to incur their ire by simply pointing out things they already know others can see. After all, that was a pedophiles message board… It’s also true that even if I posted their usernames, there’s little law enforcement could do with it. The FBI can’t get to them, so Podunk PD isn’t going to be able to either.
If anyone in law enforcement on a local or county level wants more information on how to find these places, simply get in touch with me. I’m not hard to find. The federal alphabet agencies already know about these sites, so you already have better resources than me at your disposal, but I’ll help in any way I can, even if it’s just showing you how I did it so you can keep an eye on your own municipalities better. Government just can’t crack them thanks to the myriad security protocols and false-trails this kind of network tends to employ.
In conclusion, I hope I’ve left you horrified, sickened, slightly nauseous, and more concerned for our children than ever. Maybe that’s what it takes to make people sit up and take notice.
Have a Good Day Y’all.
It was brought to my attention by a reader that these conversations portray people abusing their OWN kids more than other people’s kids, and that therefore they aren’t relevant. It was probably my bias in selecting material that caused it to turn out that way. In my own mind, molesting your own children deserves a special kind of place in Hell. For some reason that made me choose these few images to use, rather than the hundreds of others I could have picked from. Don’t think for a moment there aren’t just as many “how do I seduce this kid without their parent’s knowing?” kinds of conversations. I just forgot to include those. These affected me worst of all, so I used them to show you it’s real. I think this material should stand as evidence enough that this kind of thing is out there. It doesn’t need any further exposition to determine they’re after yours too…
