Alleged predator sues group

There are a variety of “predator hunting” groups in the world. However, you don’t hear about them being the target of a lawsuit, this group is special in that regard. Recently, a group that seeks out child predators and exposes them live has come under fire. Florida resident, Roy Anderson of Pensacola has filed a lawsuit against the predator hunting group, Oklahoma Predator Prevention (OPP.)

In the lawsuit, Anderson claims the group has maliciously slandered his name. One of many reasons for this lawsuit derive from what has happened post the video being broadcasted. Death threats, various calls, and even the loss of his job are just among the many events Anderson has delt with since the video. While we are not in the business of protecting predators (nor are we doing that here,) it is our job to present the facts as we know them. Below, are some snippets from the conversation between Anderson and whom he believed was a 15 yo girl.

The conversation does have us wondering just how far his lawsuit will actually go. Within, there are a variety of “red flags,” potential indicators that OPP may have been onto something. Even if they are in the right, the group itself has arisen questions with us.

While we have seen a variety of videos from this group, what we have not seen is any evidence that the group actually contacts law enforcement. While there maybe a reason for this, the group has never addressed them, a potential red flag in itself. What we have seen, however, is a couple of men who have conversations with potential predators. They meet up with the target at public locations, make a video, and leave it at that. There is a correct way to do this and there is an incorrect way to catch predators; this method would be correct if they worked with law enforcement and actually removed these people from the streets. Instead, in most cases, the alleged predator leaves upon gaining some fame and the story ends there. So who are they really protecting by doing this?

To be for the children, and to be about protecting them means that one takes the evidence in hopes of securing an arrest. If they aren’t doing this, and that does appear to be the case, than they really aren’t protecting the children; the advice is simple: get the predators off the streets. We are going to be observing this one closely due to the lawsuit. While we do intend to update this when able, we also hope the group takes a more proactive approach of getting these predators incarcirated.

Haunted house or legalized torture?

Recently, a “haunted house,” located in Tennessee has come under fire. The “McKamey Manor haunt,” located in Summertown, TN. has, in part, gain attention because of the extreme measures taken just to enter. The requirements of having a Doctor’s note, signing a 40 page waiver, providing a “safe word,” proof of medical insurance, and even a background check are mandatory. With all of these guidelines, how does a Halloween event become so contraversial?

To start, many people are claiming that it is a legal form of torture. This derives from the amount of mental and physical traumas that are often reported at the location. Within the waiver, it allegedly states that the staff may inflict a variety of injuries to the visitors. Rather it be suffocating a person with a plastic bag, using tools to break bones, and so fourth, people find themselves in a variety of potentially life threatning situations. The staff themselves have been within the scope of contraversy.

Allegedly, the staff of this “haunted house,” comprise of former inmates who have convictions ranging from violent to sexually based crimes; this isn’t to farfetched as there are reports of rapes at this location. The house owner, Russ McKamey, allegedly forces people to watch a two hour video prior to entry. During this video, the observer sees other people who have attempted, and failed, to complete this event. The phrase, “You really don’t want to do this,” is seen throughout the video; given what we have learned about this house, we have to agree. The waiver, as previously mentioned reads as follows:

74. Participant fully understands and agrees that they may have a plastic bag or wrap on their face which could possibly cause suffocation, blackouts, etc. and particpant will not hold MM responsible or libel.

For us, the portion that has really stood out is the use the term “etc.” This leads us to believe that a particpant may very well die from this situation should the employee decide not to remove the bag, something that seems very plausible given how the waiver is written. Other portions of the waiver discuss “being crushed in a pit by various objects,” being injured with fishing hooks, and even being tazed. Another repeating issue is in regards to the alleged safe word. According to some posts, employees are notorious for ignoring the word completely and continuing this torture.

Halloween is meant to be a fun family event, while there are those who take it to the extreme, from what we have learned about this place, it’s on a whole new platform. With this article we hope that anybody who intends to visit this location: research it first. This is a location with many reports, some we only mentioned without discussing further. We did this not to hide information, but to protect any reader who may suffer from PTSD or have been a victim of rape. We are looking further into this and hope to find more information soon. This article will be updated as needed.
