Meet Kelso WA wannabe libertarian vigilante Curtis J. Hart

Don't Tread On Me hats are for douchebags.

This man is Curtis J. Hart, a "libertarian politician" from Kelso, WA. In addition to running a small-time online radio show and generally making an ass of himself, and losing elections by landslides in podunk towns, Hart runs his own joke of an online vigilante team called "The Punisher Squad." What a joke. I guess he must be desperate if he couldn't beat a 70 year old man for a podunk commission seat.

Curtis felt the need to call me from his home phone number, 360-442-1878. Looks like SOMEBODY just ran afoul of Ohio's harassing communications law. 

How Hart feels about helping the homeless

Vigilante group hunting potential child predators in Kelso

KELSO, Wash. -- Ask Curtis Hart if he considers himself a vigilante and you’ll get a blunt answer.

“I’ve been called worse,” he said.

Regardless of the title, Hart says he and roughly five of his friends, who call themselves the Punisher Squad, are serving a vital purpose. They’re catching potential child predators before they have the chance to strike, posting videos of their encounters on YouTube, and only calling police once it’s time for an arrest to be made.

Their first experiment, which happened Thursday, was a success in Hart’s mind.

The proof, being that of 36-year-old Adam Olson, of Castle Rock, who is behind bars, being held on $50,000 bond.

“He believed he was there to meet a 13-year-old girl to have sex with,” said Hart. “The whole thing was exactly like an episode of ‘To Catch a Predator.’”

According to the Kelso police report, Hart and a friend posted a message Thursday in the online app ‘Whisper’.' They posed as a 14-year-old girl, looking to “have fun with an older man”.

“Immediately, I got 30 to 40 responses,” he said.

Hart says he zeroed in on Olson. The two traded selfies, and Hart, still posing as the teen, said he was actually 13.

Quickly, reports show, the conversation became sexual.

“It was absolutely disgusting,” said Hart.

Hart said Olson pressed to meet the fake teen, so he rounded up some buddies, at least one of them armed, and headed to Kelso’s Tom O’Shanter Park.

He said Kelso police had no idea, until Hart and his friends decided it was time for officers to make an arrest, which they did moments later.

“We didn't want to leave it up to the police because you can't just sit around on your hands waiting for government to come and fix everything,” said Hart. “To wait for government is to want your city to end up like Flint, Michigan.”

It’s the same rationale used by similar civilian groups around the world.

The trend, in one city, was dubbed “The Hunter Phenomenon”.

Police elsewhere have pleaded for it to stop, saying it’s ruined lives, put civilians at risk and left would-be slam dunk cases riddled with holes.

KGW reached out to Kelso Police for comment on Olson’s arrest. We were told no one was available.

People living in Kelso and Longview, though, did want to talk about the idea, including David Willis. He has two daughters, and he’s all for it.

“The police are overwhelmed,” he said. “As far as a community, you want people to come together.”

Others were not so sold.

“They're not police,” said Bob Johnson. “They don't have experience. They don't know what they're doing, and we have laws that protect people that haven't done anything yet.”

Prosecutors in Cowlitz County have yet to file formal charges against Olson.

He’s being held on probable cause for one count of second-degree attempted rape of a child and one count of communication with a minor for immoral purposes by electronic means.

March Madness Selection Sunday: Nicole O'Kelly ("Nicky") and her stupid "pedo symbol" story is even dumber when you check out her FaceBook page

This entire silly story about a two heart symbol being code for "pedophiles are trading children for sex" is even dumber now that word has gotten out that Nicole O'Kelly, the idiot who started the hysteria a few days ago, got her information from LAW & ORDER SVU. Seriously? Someone has been watching waaaaaay too much SVU. (And yes, it was a load of crap made up by SVU, using other BS posted on Wikileaks and adopted by the various "chan" communities to mock the conclusions made by this show and Wikileaks. Note the references were mostly Wikipedia articles. The FBI needs better references.)

You know how the WFLA report (by that other Shiitake Award nominee Melanie Michael) claimed that "When a pedophile sees children with the heart symbol, it’s a code. It means this child is ready to be traded for sex"? Well, it seems the source of this claim didn't come from Wikileaks and that alleged FBI memo, but from an episode of SVU. Out of the mouths of idiots...

Law and Order SVU isn't exactly a bastion of accuracy (in fact, they tend to get a lot of even basic criminal justice facts wrong), so if you cite it as a source, you are an idiot. And yes, there are a ton of idiots out there who bought this tripe:

At least one guy got it right: 

The insanity just gets worse with this woman:

So now this woman has taken the crazy to the next tier. But it just gets worse and worse. So there were three symbols-- a heart, a rose, and a fist (Black Panthers?), and one idiot made the following suggestion: 

Yes, a victim industry group helped this bimbo feed her insanity. AOL quotes the ex-baby-killer ex-Planned Parenthood worker Anna Potter of the Bivona Child Advocacy Center: "When I see that heart inside the heart, it's pedophile,' said Potter of the symbol. 'It's that underground culture that they use to communicate... They're giving it to their daughter thinking it's a toy and then to someone else it could mean criminal behavior."

Anna Potter, certified dumbass
At any rate, so now this idiot concluded that the symbols on this toy truck is like the Da Vinci Code for "pedophiles," but they didn't really explain the fist. Black Panthers? They use the fist. I guess Nicole will be biting her nail for a while awaiting the hordes of militant black pedophile sex traffickers to proposition her for sex with her spawn. I can't think of a more ludicrous proposition. 

How does this stack up among the worse of the stupid sex offender-related stories featured on the Shiitake Awards? Since forming the 'Holy Shiitakes" category in 2010 to document some of the dumbest RSO-related stories in the media.  some of the most absurd beliefs about so-called "pedophiles"-- bus-surfing, using license plates to lure kids, newspapers refusing to publish the names of children out of predator fears, denying homeless shelters to teens because they fear there may be RSOs in the shelters, cops using the bait-and-switch to arrest adults looking for adult hookups online and claiming they were looking for kiddies, cops wanting to take pics of nude teens to see if they were sexting, fears that stick figure families on your cars lure "pedos," sex offenders running anti-sex offender sites, robotic kittens saying "rape me," Pedobear scares at ComicCons and Kit Kat ads, Lance Armstrong blaming SOs for his doping scandal, insurance companies refusing service because SO status is a liability, Ohio State recruit decommitting because there was an SO on campus, cities building walls around houses of SOs, Child Porn Barbies, the "Erin Brockovich of online dating" and her alleged rape by an RSO, government workers fired for marrying an SO, vigilantes proposing SO concentration camps with color-coded armbands, Idaho reps walking out on an SO bill reading because they could handle descriptions of private parts, mock electrocutions to scare SOs, and women setting up their boyfriends by downloading CP, O'come on, Man-Kelly may not be the worst but If this was the NCAA tourney, I'd have to see her tripe pretty damned high on the list.

That heart symbol is also a universal symbol for British Ice Cream.

Melanie Michael actually believes that a symbol on a kid's toy is a euphemism for sex trafficking. Guess which state she's in...

There are just so many jokes I could write, but the one that comes to mind is that I believe the media should be represented by a similar symbol to the one discussed in this video, only the media symbol is a large brain encompassing a smaller brain, to symbolize the shrinkage of one's brain through too much exposure to the media. [See my rough drawing of the proposed media symbol].

By the way, nowhere on the entire internet could I find this symbol in connection with Sex Trafficking (one anti-trafficking group mentions "Tattoos of a name, symbol of money or barcode could indicate trafficking." Yeah, nothing about two hearts. 

Did I mention Melanie is from the land of 'Duh?

Code for pedophiles ends up on children’s toys sold at Monster Jam
By Melanie Michael

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Nicole O’Kelly couldn’t believe it when she heard the stuffed toy she bought for her daughter at Monster Jam may have a symbol meant for pedophiles.

What an ugly bitch... the dog ain't much of  a looker, either.
“I’m absolutely sick. I bought this for my 2-year-old little girl. This toy was made for little girls. I wanted answers,” O’Kelly said.

When she got the answers as to why there was a strange heart symbol on her daughter’s stuffed toy truck she nearly threw up. The souvenir recently purchased at a Monster Jam event held a sick secret; a disgusting calling card for creeps. The heart on the toy was a symbol for pedophiles.

“This is pink,” O’Kelly said. “This is for little girls, especially at a predominately male event.”truck-symbol1

The more News Channel 8 investigated this case, the worse it got. This toy, we learned, wasn’t made far away. It was designed in the Tampa Bay area, at Feld, Inc.

Here’s what the heart means. When a pedophile sees children with the heart symbol, it’s a code. It means this child is ready to be traded for sex.

Pasco Detective Anthony Bassone has been with the agency for more than 16 years. He has one tough job every day. And, what he encounters, he can’t forget. He has to see the worst of the worst. He picks out pedophiles online and busts them, along with two other detectives in the cyber crimes unit at the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.

These investigators have to deal with the most horrendous, gut-wrenching, heartbreaking material. Sadly, they see children tortured and raped on a daily basis.

The alleged "pedophile" symbol what this reporter claims is shorthand is the
little girl is available to be sold into sex trafficking, with NO proof this is true.
These crime-fighters make it through with their motivation to protect children and keep them safe. What drives these detectives to do their jobs and face another day, they told us, is to put the bad guys away.

The company, Feld Inc, admits they are shocked and did not realize this was going on. They have since pulled the toys from the shelves. Anyone who attended the Monster Jam event on January 16th or February 6th should contact detectives.

A company spokesperson released the following statement:

“We’re shocked. We had no idea. We reacted immediately. We wanted to do the right thing as quickly as possible. Clearly we’re in the business with providing high quality family entertainment. This was really obscure. Until yesterday, I had no idea there was an underlying meaning of these symbols and the deplorable behavior. We just don’t know if a crime was committed here. We have not been contacted by LEOs. We just want to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” said Stephen Payne, with Feld Inc.

Aw, Melanie is all butthurt over being blasted on the Internet.

Attorney General Hector Balderas puts both the "bald" and the "ass" in the New Mexico Attorney General's Office

If there was ever a man who helps the state keep the spirit of the derisive slogan "Land of Entrapment," it is Attorney General Hector Balderas. He and his staff walked out of a legislative session in protest over a bill allowing teen sexters to get off the registry, citing that the NM ICAC would lose funding. At least he admitted it is all about the money!

AG opposes teen sexting exception in amended child porn bill
Milan Simonich, The New Mexican 6:46 p.m. MST February 17, 2016

SANTA FE – In a cantankerous hearing Tuesday night, a Senate committee approved a bill to increase penalties for those who manufacture, distribute and possess child pornography, but not until adding an exception for consensual cases of teenage "sexting."

The amendment so upset members of Democratic state Attorney General Hector Balderas' staff that they walked out in protest.

I bet being an asshole is also part of who he is. 
Sen. George Muñoz, D-Gallup, called the behavior by Balderas' staff "a joke" and told the bill's sponsor, Rep. Sarah Maestas Barnes, "It's an embarrassment that they did that to you."

A spokesman for Balderas later said in an email: The "attorney general staff walked out of committee in support of stronger protections for New Mexico children." Then Balderas himself sent a statement that said in part: "I cannot support an amendment that weakens protections for teenagers from predatory activity, creates a dangerous new child exploitation loophole, and places New Mexico's federal Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force funding in jeopardy."

Maestas Barnes, R-Albuquerque, originally sought to allow prosecution of defendants for every individual image of child pornography that they possessed. She said some defendants with large numbers of pictures have drawn sentences from no prison time to 18 months. Her bill got out of the Republican-controlled House of Representatives intact, but it has been heavily amended in the Senate and criticized by a senator from her own party.

Sen. Lisa Torraco, R-Albuquerque, in a previous hearing, said Maestas Barnes' bill was flawed because it wasn't tough enough on manufacturers of child porn, and because cases of teens texting explicit pictures to a boyfriend or girlfriend could have been subject to prosecution.

Maestas Barnes reluctantly accepted Senate rewrites of the bill. It now calls for a 10-year prison term for possession, 11 years for distribution and 12 years for "manufacturing" lewd images of children. Those producing child porn often molest the children as well.

Maestas Barnes on Tuesday night gave halfhearted support to Muñoz's amendment in the Senate Finance Committee, so that teens ages 14 through 17 in consensual boyfriend-girlfriend relationships would not be prosecuted for texting photos that might be construed under other circumstances as child exploitation.

Clara Moran, a prosecutor on the attorney general's staff, testified that her office opposed the amendment. She said the Children, Youth and Families Department had no cases in the last three years in which texting byplay between teenagers had led to criminal offenses. But a spokeswoman for defense attorneys countered that those sorts of prosecutions of teenagers had occurred.

Muñoz at one point talked of withdrawing his amendment. But Sen. Sue Wilson Beffort, R-Sandia Park, said she would filibuster the bill unless it contained a provision to head off prosecutions of teens who did something stupid but without criminal intent.

Beffort said she feared teenage boys would end up being prosecuted because of a complaining parent with clout. "It strikes a terrible nerve with me. It is a fairness issue," Beffort said.

Senators on the Finance Committee approved the amendment 9-1. Sen. Pete Campos, D-Las Vegas, dissented.

After that, Moran and other members of the attorney general's staff walked out, leaving Maestas Barnes to answer any other questions from the committee.

Attorney General Balderas for two days had sent news releases calling on the committee to approve the bill without amending it. But he didn't attend the hearing, prompting Muñoz to criticize Balderas. "If he cared so much, why isn't he here? He sends his little henchmen."

Balderas' spokesman, James Hallinan, said Balderas did not attend the hearing "because he sent his staff."

With less than two days remaining in the session, the amended bill next goes to the full Senate.

Alabama Republican State Rep Steve Hurst wants your 'wurst in the worst kind of way

Steve Hurst has been trying to get a mandatory SURGICAL castration bill passed since 2007. I think the legislature should pass a mandatory surgical lobotomy bill for people like Hurst.

I think this guy is pretty perverted, quite frankly. ecause this guy is completely obsessed with cutting penises.

Alabama lawmaker introduces sex offender castration bill
By Matt Fernandez
Published: March 4, 2016, 10:26 pm  Updated: March 4, 2016, 10:29 pm

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WIAT) — An Alabama lawmaker has a plan to permanently and physically punish someone convicted of certain sex offenses against children.

The bill, known as HB 365, would make those sex offenders have to get surgically castrated before they leave prison.

HB 365 was introduced by State Representative Steve Hurst, R-Calhoun County.

He said the bill will be for sex offenders over the age of 21 that committed sex offenses against children 12 years old and younger.

“They have marked this child for life and the punishment should fit the crime,” said Hurst.

This is not Hurst’s first time introducing the bill.

“I had people call me in the past when I introduced it and said don’t you think this is inhumane? I asked them what’s more inhumane than when you take a little infant child, and you sexually molest that infant child when the child cannot defend themselves or get away, and they have to go through all the things they have to go through. If you want to talk about inhumane–that’s inhumane,” said Hurst.

Hurst is hoping this would make sex offenders think twice.

“If we do something of this nature it would deter something like this happening again in Alabama and maybe reduce the numbers,” said Hurst.

Residents have some mixed emotions about it.

“Somebody that wants to mess with a little girl or little boy that age should be castrated, and they should not be able to mess with any other kids,” said Keith Dison.

“I understand prison and going to prison for a long time for some kind of crime like that, but to physical mutilate someone…that’s a little out there…it’s crazy,” Jessica George said.

The bill will have to pass the judiciary committee before it’s heard by the Alabama House and Senate.
