Family Foward Project supports convicted sex offender!

For any person fighting CPS, there is an expectation of security when dealing with an advocate. For the group, Family Foward Project, it is easy to say that this trust has been violated.

The group’s founder, Connie Reguli, has knowingly endorsed convicted sex offender, David Shore. David Shore got placed onto the registry when he molested his 14yo handicapped daughter. Although this information is publically available, this has not waived Connie’s support for the convicted pedophile.

Connie’s support appears to be a rather tight bond-going as far as to endorse David’s book; however this support isn’t without consequence.

Already, people have began to comment their distain for David, as well as Connie’s endorsement. Family Foward Project, which has already been plaqued with issues, is now seeing people removing themselves from the group. Meko Haze, for his own artical, attempted to make contact with FFP only for his post to be deleted by the administrators.

A group such as FFP should be devoted to protecting families and children. As we view it, they seem more concerned with aiding and protecting a convicted pedophile. Regardless of what reason she may have, it doesn’t alter the fact that she knows of his conviction, a fact she willfuly has ignored. When a family needs an advocate, one should be very cautious about groups such as this. If they are protecting a registered sex offender, they cannot claim to be for the children.

Man who admitted to molesting a child, threatens journalist

If you haven’t heard the name, “David Shore” before, sit back and grab the popcorn, you are about to get a crash course. The shortened version is David, who oddly enough is friends with Francesca Amato, is a sexual predator, confirmed by his registry on the sexual predator’s watch list. He was accused of molesting a child, who was under 14 yo at the time.

Above is an image portion of the charges. Recently, in what we consider a rather comical PM, Meko Haze recieved a threat from Shore (not worthy of being called Mr. Shore.) Rather than explaining the PM, we will let you see it.

This PM is what we intend to breakdown.

First let’s address the detective lying. While we agree the police do lie, often times interrogations, such as these, are recorded. They are recorded for evidence as well as accountability purposes.

He goes onto state that he has a civil attorney and has contacted the feds regarding cyber harassment. Well, we can tell you from experience that the Feds won’t get involved…even if they did work that sort of case, it’s unlikely they would aid a convicted child predator. Furthermore, DOC is actually public information. If Shore had an attorney, as he proclaims, he would had been informed of that.

He goes back to gloat about the feds being involved, they aren’t involved. I’m sure you can see where we are going with all of this, but if you don’t, let’s nail this coffin closed.

David Shore is upset that people learned of his twisted past. In retalliation, he thought that threatning a journalist was a smart move. If he knew anything about journalists, we never back down. He is apparantly bluffing about having an attorney as he knows nothing about the laws involving sex predators; DOC records are PUBLIC information. Afterall, what parent would want to move next door to this guy? In some way, he is associated with Amato as he is on her friends list, though the how remains unknown. To dumb it down, thanks for putting a beacon on yourself, David.

Advocate scam

We have stated it before, the worst thing for a parent is to be ripped away from their children. The desperation, vulnerability, the sleepless nights are just a portion of their nightmare. Many of the parents turn to the Facebook community in a desperate attempt of seeking an advocate, and advocates are in abundance.

While there are many good people who truly want to assist these victims, there are many who wish to exploit them; it is such an person we wish to expose, Punished for Protecting (P4P,) Francesca Amato-Banfield.

Looking into P4P

Two different platforms did research into her 501(c)4 organization. As an organization, she would had obtained either a tax number or a tax exemption number, both are public information. According to the outside source, neither things were found within IRS records. As we had stated in the last artical, the state of New York also had nothing within their records pertaining to P4P, this is an enormous red flag to anybody seeking an advocate.

With the lack of any relevent, and legal, information to validate this 501(c)4, we must presume it isn’t a legal organization. Once we came to this conclusion, we decided to further investigate. Because of Ms. Amato’s consistant outbursts, looking into her, as a “founding” figure was rather easy.

Amato vs. Meko

In the above image, the true color of Francesca is clearly seen. First, let’s nust point out the idiocy of the original post, prior to her editing it.

She states, “hes a fake fraud…pedophile too.” This was a review left on a page operated by Meko Haze. First, to let’s look at the “fake fraud” aspect. To be a fraud, that would mean that you are not legitimate. It is furthered determined that if you are not legitimate, you are fake. So, in retrospect, she used two negatives. In the English language, wo negatives counter one another. That means what she really stated, had she of known proper English is, ” he’s legitmate” as the double negatives contradict one another.

She goes on to use the pedophile claim. As we have seen in the past, these criminals, who get exposed, absolutely adore that claim. In fact, one of our own had an actual campaign against him deriven from this very accusation. The reason they use the pedophile claim is simple.

The pedophile claim, often times, needs no proof, nobody ever says, “prove it.” As a result of this, the claim is often spread around, doing extensive damage to a person’s reputation. But wait, here’s the good part: it’s also illegal. Libal slander, slander, and defamation of character are three great litigation cases for people like this. Upon being called out on this claim, Amato edited her comment (post below the first one.) Sadly for her, however, Facebook let’s you see the original post.

Free of Charge!

A claim that Francesca has made regards to fees. She claims that she accepts donations. That sounds legit, right? Of course it is! Well…one little problem with this claim. Rather than taking our word for it, look for yourself.

As you can see, this clearly states that all of her classes must be paid upfront, as a fee. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here but this is not a donation. So, if she is collecting donations, making book sells, why is she charging for a class while denying taking fees outside of donations? The answer to this is obvious: she simply forgot this part of her deception.

The forced payment cannot legally be classified as a donation. Doing this is considered fraud because, as we all know, donations are essentially gifts. If you force people to gift your organization, you are not a non-profit, you are not taking donations, and you shouldn’t try to claim that you are.

In her own mind, she is a revolutionary woman. She is running for governor (no records exist to prove her claim,) she has a magical affadavit that returns all children, though in reality you denounce your citizenship and ultimately lose your case, and she is a top selling book author, even though her “top seller” is valued to be a little over $5.00 on Amazon. All-in-all, she has a great imagination.

We have already exposed one of her “organization’s leaders” here. With the behavior that seems to run rampant within “P4P,” it makes me glad to not be a desperate parent. I do, however, fear for those that she has/will victimize(d). It is, with this in mind, we brought this information to our readers.

Victimizing the victims.

For any parent, CPS is a potential nightmare waiting to happen. Sadly for many, however, the nightmare is a reality. For these parents, desperation is what drives them; for many of them, this is what drives them to frauds, predators who willfully exploit their situation for money, a form of idealistic fame, or one of countless other reasons.

Recently, “The Daily Haze’” founder, Meko Haze outed such a fraud, John Gentry. The alledged former Marine has been giving legal advice to desperate parents. Attorneys do this all the time, right? This is where it gets interesting. As it turns out, John doesn’t have a license to practice law. Now, anybody who knows even the basic logic of the law, would most likely know that it is a felony to practice law without a license, look at the Ronnie Davis case.

Mr. Gentry, upon being exposed, attempted to discredit Mr. Haze’ claim. Although the intital claim to which he practically admitted to having no legal training was in a public setting, be fought anyway. In the end, we can state that he lost. As Gentry spammed post upon post from Meko, it became clear that any support Gentry could had gotten…gone.

What we saw in his comments consisted of self embelishment, blows toward Mr. Haze who spoke the truth, and examples of his alledged legal training. We spoke to Mr. Haze prior to this artical. He informed us that all the documentation was to be handed to the FBI. It is, for this reason, we have not posted any screenshots. However, his Facebook is open so looking into it for yourself should be relatively easy.

The Daily Haze attacked with false claim!

UPDATE:

24 hours after releasing this article, Meko Haze recieved a letter to cease. Below are the images.

A very disturbing trend floating around activists who deal with children, is the pedo claim. If you disagree, correct, or simply meet the wrong person, you may get accused. Doing what we do, it shouldn’t be a surprise that a claim would be made against a journalist. Thankfully, this time it wasn’t anybody associated with our platform.

Background

The Daily Haze, in the past, has always proven itself to be a reliable and trustworthy media source. In the past, we have shared many of their articles. In fact, we have even gone as far as to write a few some years back.

Although, until now, we have never addressed any claim made against its founder, Meko Haze, this one we felt compelled to. The accusation, quoted by “The Daily Haze,” is shown below. The accuser, Amelia Duran.

The accusation is fairly blunt. The claim is that Meko believes that pedophilia doesn’t harm children. The way it is worded almost makes it sound as if he is content with the act. There is just two issues here:

1. We have had many discussions with Meko, over the years. At no point had he ever given us this impression.

2. Her unwillingness to display any form of evidence. In fact, she outright states that she won’t. Why is that?

I had intended to question her about the claim, ask for the evidence myself. However, according to Meko, she had blocked him. Being that I knew for a fact that they were friends, I checked. Sure enough, he was no longer on her friends-list. This sudden block confirmed exqctly what we thought:

1. She made a false accusation, and got caught.

2. When confronted with actual facts, she eliminated the source. This tactic is to prevent other people from seeing the confrontation; people do this so to not tarnish their lie.

We looked into Amelia, following this claim. According to an anonymous source and friend, she is proned to alcoholism. Furthermore, she is pro ed to making posts such as this, accusing people of various things. Even if she isn’t an alcoholic and our source is wrong, she still tried to make a devestating claim against a respected journalist.

We have advocated before against false alegations. The damage they cause is often unrepairable. Although a few people will always take a person’s word for gold, we choose to stand with Meko and his platform, “The Daily Haze.

Fighting the beast

We recently covered the complete destruction of Free speech within the Facebook Social Media site. Of course, we all know of the various accusations the platform has received even from the Senate. While Zuckerburg denied all of the accusations, the recent attacks on the media, and their owners, is apparent; now, it has come to us.

While WoC has not been “unpublished” unlike other platforms, the individual who started it all, has been placed on a 30 day ban for “hate speech.” The odd part to the ban is Facebook’s lack of transparency into what the hate speech actually was. To put this in lamens terms, he is banned and has no idea why.

One thing that does make this suspicious is the fact we openly endorsed/supported pages like “CopBlock,” “Free thought project,” and “Anti-Media.” All of these, and hundreds more, were suddenly and without reason, removed from Facebook. Perhaps, it is our belief in “Free speech” that they find to be “hate speech.”

As it stands, our lead journalist is in appeal number three, the other two being denied. Perhaps, it is at this time, advocates, activists, and journalists begin to give Facebook the legal president it apparently beckons for; yes, we are talking about a very large class action suit against the mega giant.

Of course, I digress. We already know this could never happen, we would never be able to rally that many people together. But what if it did? What grounds would they have?

Well, censorship of free speech is a big motivator. Most Americans can agree that free speech is a very important right they hold. So, if the Government can’s censor that right, why is a company allowed to? They would stake the claim that they own the servers and can run it as they please. This maybe true. However, federal laws apply. Censoring out platforms and people who oppose your own beliefs can only cause problems for the company; but this is Facebook we are talking about.

Because if is Facebook, WoC has actively began moving away from that platform. Because we pay for our own domain, we know that Facebook can’t keep us quiet and shut us down. We also know how to branch outward, and branching we are. Rather you agree with Facebook or not, all of us need to be aware that, at some point, we could become the next target of their censorship.

The Facebook commentary

Anybody who has ever heard of the infamous social media site, Facebook, is probably already aware of the numerous contraversies surrounding it. With this in mind, we shouldn’t be all to surprised that the site has been violating privacy laws in its collection of personal data.

As you maybe aware, or not, anything you post to Facebook is considered fair game. So, that boyfriend/girlfriend breaking up with you post…don’t be surprised when you start getting ads for dating sites. Now, that collection of information is not what we are here to discuss.

If you go to your account settings, there is an option to download a copy of what Facebook has collected on you. Upon doing this, I found that they had more information than what they legally should have. Text messages, my phone contacts, etc. are just a couple of things they had stolen from my personal phone. So, is collecting this information legal? No.

In order for law enforcement to obtain this information, they must first get a warrant. To get a warrant, they must have probable cause. Now, because Facebook is not law enforcement, they cannot obtain a warrant. However, they can conduct internal investigations if you are employed with them. So what does this have to say about their collection information on you?

Your text messages, your contact list, who you called, the duration of said call, etc., Facebook obtained in violation of Federal privacy laws. Because they cannot obtain a warrant, shrouded their collection in secrecy, and made no attempt to inform people, we now see the newest hashtag, #DeleteFacebook.

With this hashtag trending, it does make us wonder rather or not Facebook has finally come to its end. Although, there will always be people associated with the Social media site, alternative sites have taken this oppurtunity to grow their user bases. Given the extensive, and yet, contraversial history of Facebook, leaving the mega site may not be a bad idea.

Investigations: who can do it?

You see it all the time in the world of Facebook. Some idiot decides to make an accusation, such as my situation, and runs their own “investigation.” What you don’t see, or may not know, are the legalities of these actions. So, it is to say, I am going to give you the tools you need to wipe the floor with such brainless adolecents.

Investigations

First off, there are actual laws regarding the method to which an investigation is conducting, even within a workplace. While a company can conduct an internal investigation, this only applies to its current employees or those employed at the time the investigation began; this applies to 501c3, and other organizations as well.

Now, in this situation, if a company, or 501c3 is conducting an investigation on you, and you were never employed by them, they are breaking the law. It goes back to that magic word: internal investigation. Furthermore, if the investigation is being conducted in a harassing or malicious manner, that is also illegal.

No company, or 501c3 can conduct an external investigation unless licensed to do so. If they are not licensed to conduct one, that gives the investigative target legal grounds. Furthermore, if the findings are being shared via social media, it is now libel slander unless you can establish loss.

A loss can include friends, employment, etc. If any of these things have happened as a result of the fraudulant investigation, you can now sue for Defamation of character. For a 501c3, this is especially hurtful as you can actually sue for the revocation of its non profit status, removal of its president, or for ownership of the organization itself. To put this kindly, you can destroy an entire organization if they have committed this crime.

Who can conduct an investigation?

Alright, so there are a variety of agencies and people who can actually conduct an investigation.

Local and state police, FBI, etc. If we branch out to the civilian world, private investigators. What do all of these people have in common? All of them have obtained a license to do so. Law enforcement are granted this right via the state. Private investigators are given a license to conduct such investigation. If the person conducting one is not licensed to do so, any and all findings ars null and void, their evidence is useless in court. Firthermore, if they are blasting it on social media, the courts could rule that null as well, not to mention the ratifications of conducting the illegal investigation.

If the investigation is on your past, for example, a closed case, you could call double jepordy, especially if the “evidence” is being used against you. You can claim they are enacting as an unlawful court and are, essentially, placing you on trial once again; this is where social media can turn dark for offending parties.

To conduct this style of investigation, is very much illegal. Here, I will give you the breached law categories:

1. Stalking.

2. Harassment.

3. (Cyber) bullying.

4. Libel slander.

5. Defamation of character.

6. Conducting an unlawful investigation.

This, my friends, is your ammunition to fight back. If you are a victim of this, do not wait for it to just vanish, it rarely does. Take action, begin legal proceedings, and pdf anything posted to any social media platform that contains slander; this is how you end such slander. Do it right, keep it legal.

Libel slander/ defamation of character information

Most Americans are familiar with defamation of character and slander. However, how many are familiar with libel slander? What is it exactly? This article is one that has been a long time coming, it is one that needs to be written.

Libel slander is established when an individual (or group) write maliciously about a person with the intent of destroying their name, image, and reputation. While it is not often an arrestable offense, it is still a crime. A person who is conducting such slander will often find ways to validate it.

If the slander, for example, is in regards to a court case, they may try to use documentation from that court, but only enough to establish the slander. For example, a police report. The issue in such documentation is the courts classify it as “hearsay” and thus it is not municiple. However, even with that in mind, it does not matter to the would-be criminal.

For a victim of such a crime, do you actually have any course of action? In the case of libel slander, yes. As long as you can establish that the information being written is false, you can file suit. However, bear in mind, you may also sue for defamation of character, also.

Defamation of character can be established when the libel slander, or any variation thereof, has caused loss. For example, if you are terminated from your place of employment. Once this has occured, you now have defamation of character as part of your lawsuit. It doesn’t stop there.

With an employment loss, you now have monetary loss, add loss of wages to the bucket. These abuses have psychological effects as well. With that, you now have mental/emotional trauma. If those close to you have been targets, they can file jointly with you.

As long as you have supporting evidence to back your claim, the court will most likely grant you a settlement. If the individual fails to pay, however, in time you could put a lean against their property. However, we are not attornies, please research this information before blindly following our helpful advice.
