Vincent Nicotra: gallery

It is, without say, that articles go along way. However, evidence goes even further. We have decided to make another gallery, documenting Nicotra’s unethical, and potentially illegal, behaviors. This, like the Onision gallery, will be updated as needed.

UPDATE: We would like to thank everybody who has posted images. It is through this, we were/are able to collect evidence in the hopes it will finally bring justice to those targeted by Vincent Nicotra.

Updates

Yeah, we know…this didn’t take long. However, when running around in the cyber world, we found this little gem.
An apology given by Nicotra, at some point. This, as to date, is the only time he has taken accountability.

The Nicotra scheme

Introduction

Former “web designer,” Vincent Nicotra, has been the target of various unethical and even illegal activities. While we had been following this, mildly, that has since changed. If you haven’t been following the Nicotra situation, let’s get you caught up.

Vincent, of “Ven interactive Media“, was originally in charge of websites for journalist, Chris Hansen. Nicotra recently was given the public spotlight when he filed multiple false DMCA claims against various Youtubers. However, his criminal, and unethical, activities didn’t stop there.

Doxxing Claims

Even prior to Nicotra’s termination from Hansen, there have been accusations in regards to doxxing. While we normally don’t discuss hearsay, there are multiple individuals making this claim. Oxford defines doxxing as, the “search for and publishment of private or identifying information about (a particular individual) on the Internet, typically with malicious intent.”

While doxxing is illegal, it is often hard to get an actual conviction. In many cases, it’s simply to difficult to establish who the doxxer actually is. However, that’s if the doxxer plays it smart, something Vincent has clearly failed to do. While he has been exposed by his victims, and countless others, it appears to have no effect on Vincent’s behavior.

DMCA claims

Alongside the doxxing accusations, Nicotra is also accused of filing false DMCA claims. Baked Salmon and Wes Moast, being a constant target of such claims. Recently Baked Salmon even had his channel shutdown as a result of Vincent’s false DMCA reports. While the channel has since been restored, this doesn’t change the malicious intent behind Vincent’s actions.

Baked Salmon is an individual who has a history of being critical of Hansen and Nicotra. It is possible that the subjects within the video is what lead Nicotra’s actions. Even if this were to be true, it doean’t make the action any less illegal. While Hansen has, in recent times, apologized for the false DMCA claims, Nicotra has only continued to make the false reports. So what exactly is DMCA?

A DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) claim is intended to prevent copyright infringement. However, Vincent has apparantly forgotten that. In filing a DMCA claim, Vincent is claiming property ownership of the videos posted. The problem, however, is upon watching the videos targeted, it’s obvious that the claim is false. What Nicotra may not be aware of is section 512(f) of the DMCA. Section 512(f) of the DMCA act places legal liability on any person who willfully, and knowingly, files a false claim; remember, a DMCA claim is a legally binding document and can be used in court.

The computer and the FBI

One tidbit that has been circulating Twitter, in regards of Nicotra, is the infamous computer. A victim of Onision had apparantly sent a computer, containing evidence against Onision, to Vincent. Upon recieving the computer, it was supposed to be forwarded to the FBI. Sounds like a great plan, right? The problem is, and recently confirmed by Chris Hansen himself, is Vincent never actually sent it. Instead, after months of holding it, he sent it back to the victim. By doing this, it raises questions as to rather or not Nicotra was purposefully trying to derail the Onision investigation. In the end, we may never know the real reason as to why he did this.

Conclusion

Regardless of how you speak out, if it’s against Nicotra, you can ensure that problems will occur. Upon being terminated, the website, “Hansen vs. Predators,” was essentially taken hostage by Nicotra. Since the time of this event, the website has been put up for auction. Various other individuals, who have spoken against Nicotra, were met with insults, DMCA claims, and even the loss of their channels.

Nicotra, appears to be trying to salvage his reputation while destroying it. Filled with many allegations, some being sexual harassment, to which we haven’t even begun to cover, it leads us to ask, “why doesn’t he simply stop?” As with most things, this is a question to which we may never get an answer. In the meantime, the people he has targeted have waged an all-out virtual war against this apparent abuser.

Family Rights Movement: Observations (Opinionated article)

LEGAL DISCLAIMER.

We are making this disclaimer for legal purposes due to the content: This article is not intended to defame, slander, attack, or harm any individuals or their organizations. This is an opinionated article, written to express an opinion regarding the “family rights movement” as a whole.

The issues

Introduction

By now, most people are very much familiar with the “Family Rights Movement.” While, on the surface, we know it as the movement dedicated to the ratification, or expulsion, of CPS/DFS, there is a much deeper element that lurks within. This article is going to discuss why the movement, to many of us, is viewed as being a complete failure. However, we are going to at least play fair, we will highlight some of the good that has arisen from it over the years. Within this article, we are going to be covering a few core issues:

  1. Pettyness
  2. Artificial advocates
  3. Fabrication of information

The three categories are among the most serious issues I have witnessed within this movement. In fact, these issues are a big contributor as to why our platform completely removed itself from this arena, only touching on it if certain criterias were met. For instance, if an individual was causing people financial, emotional, or even harm to their case, we covered it. Sadly, that in itself has changed upon completion of this article.

Pettiness

Within the movement, emotions are one of the biggest contributors to this segment of the article. The thing to understand, in defense of the movement, is most of these people are hurting in a very deep way. However, that isn’t always the case. Spending just a few moments looking into the various groups, pages, and even personal pages, the disfunction becomes quickly apparant.

For the sake of simplicity, we are going to divide the movement into three categories: victims, advocates, and advcoate victims. While this may appear insignificant, it is, in fact, critical. The victims within the movement are families who have lost their child(ren.) Rather their case is currently opened, or was previously so, they are the ones seeking a variety of support. Many of these people allegedly have PTSD. For an advocate, it’s reccomended that they have training in this area. However, most don’t. To handle somebody who has been through such a traumatic event, with no training, is nothing short of a reciepe for disaster.

Among some of the other issues, is the constant bickering. Within the movement there is a lot of “he said/she said.” Where most other movements try to vet this sort of thing out, the Family rights movement has failed in an epic way. On nearly every group, page, etc. that relates to this movement, it is almost assured that there will be some form of drama. The drama varies from “exposures,” which are highly debatable for a variety reasons, isolation of “undesired” individuals, and the list goes on. While there are close groups within the movement, if you’re not one of those individuals, it is best to simply keep the list of people you trust to a bear minimum.

Within the movement there is a radical mentality of “perfection.” What this means is that certain individuals, or groups, are harshly targeted for minor mistakes, where others are simply forgiven. For some people, this means that no matter what, at some point they are going to get the short end of the stick. The short end of this stick comes in a variety of forms. A person could be isolated with the loss of those they considered friends. Furthermore, they could be berated in public, in the form of videos. And, to add onto this, they may get a combination of videos while their names are being dragged through the dirt on a variety of pages, though we have not seen this done to an innocent person in sometime.

Artificial Advocates

Now, if the above section isn’t “ramming a harpoon into the bear,” this segment just may do that. An artifical advocate is a person who, online, proclaims to be an advocate. However, if a person claims to be the Pope, does that make them such? To be considered an advocate, one must have training, or at least a great deal of knowledge of family law. Within the movement, there are a lot of people who make claims of knowing this, and thus making them an advocate. However, very few of them are being honest. For many families, this becomes a game of “Russian Roulette.” If you are seeking an advocate, we always suggest conducting research into the individual first. If you fail to do that, get the wrong “advocate,” your case may have a closing that is not what you expected.

Now, we are going to tie the “advocate victim” into this section. An advocate victim is a person who has been through the system. In many cases, they use this background to suggest that they know about the system; that is not true. While there are some good people out there, who have conducted research, you want to ensure that you find the right person for you. This type of “advocate,” however, does have one advantage: They know what moves CPS/DFS may make. For this reason, it isn’t always a bad idea to casually speak to a willing participate about this subject.

Fabrication of information

One of the worst things I have seen personally, over the years, is outright fabrication of information. Generally, this coinsides with a “smear campaign.” A smear campaign is the malicious, and willful, bullying to ruin a person’s reputation. This is a vicious but very rampant issue within the movement. The source of this usually derives from speculation. For instance: Person A sees you speaking to Person B. Person A doesn’t like person B. Regardless of your personal opinion of person B, person A begins to make accusations that you somehow “work” for person B. Generally, these campaigns are conducted with malice intent, lack of knowledge, or a simple lack of communication. Regardless, they cause the targeted individual emotional distress.

In other instances, partial truths are given out. Within the movement, over the years, this has been seen more than once. In fact, at one time, this was almost an epedemic. A partial truth is when an individual knows the entire story, but chooses to use words that are intended to make the target look bad. Regardless of the reasons why, the target is the one who suffers from this ignorant. In nearly every one of these issues, rarely is the intended target allowed to speak in their defense. Generally, they are forced to watch their names, pages, or groups get strung out on a rope. Occassionally, however, they are able to speak. This usually happens when the situation is being done via postings. However, more times than not, friends are lost and nobody listens.

The Good

There are people out there who will scam you for money, ruin your case, and think nothing of it. There are people who don’t know what they are doing, who intend to help. However, there are people who do truly mean well, will have your back regardless of the cost. On my personal Facebook, for instance, I have surrounded myself with these people. Some I have known for awhile now, some I am still getting to know. For all of them, however, their actions speak. Over the years I have lost many friends, while that is never easy, I don’t fret it for to long. These are the people who, ultimately, had proven themselves to be “flaky,” “toxic,” or simply those with ill intent.

If you are lucky, you will find those who will have your back.; this is one of the biggest highlights to the movement. You may find the advocate who helps you get your child(ren) home, I personally know of some who can-and will. The Family rights movement has dozens of severe issues. However, within the mix of those issues, there are a few good people; those people are the ones worth keeping.

For our platform, this is most likely the last time we will ever write about this movement. While there are a few things good, it is often very difficult to write articles such as this; this is especially true when you know there are good people within the movement. Furthermore, we don’t feel there is anymore benefit to touching on this subject any further as it has, over the years, spoken for itself. Rather that be good or bad, that is truly up to individual perception. With all of this being said, we are closing this chapter.

 

P4P: Final Review

As you have probably figured out from the title, this is most likely the last article we are going to cover on this subject. While it is our goal to protect vulnerable families from those who may potentially cause them harm, we can only beat this dead horse so many times. For those who have followed our platform, you are most likely aware of the alleged “non-profit” organization, “P4P.” Punished 4 Protecting, which was founded by Francesca Amato-Banfield, is an organization that has been under fire for sometime now. The reasons for such scrutiny vary for many reasons. This article is going to cover, not only this questionable organization, but its founder as well.

Punished 4 Protecting

Punished 4 Protecting was founded in early 2018. While this alone has no merit, it does in that Francesca Amato claims to have been around for many years, that is the only claim she makes that is factual. According to Amato, P4P is a “non-profit” organization. As a matter of fact, the below image is one to which makes such claim.

70687609_10156117359077303_421226430769135616_n

As stated, she claims to be a “non-profit.” What exactly does that entail? To be classified as a non profit, an organization has to be a 501(c)3. Organizations of this nature are tax exempt. However, with “P4P” one simple issue arises; it’s not a 501(c)3.If anything, it would be a  501(c)4. This sort of organization is defined as, “an organization that is not geared for profit and operated exclusively to promote social welfare. However, her organization is neither of these. It is incorporated and as such, cannot be a 501(c)3 or 501(c)4, We covered this issue in one of the first articles regarding Francesca’s organization. You may read the article, Sorry: 501c3 not found. 

When looking at the “P4P” site, you will notice another contradiction. Looking at the name, it has one slight flaw that disproves it being a “non-profit.” The minor issue is simply “inc.” If that doesn’t sound like anything critical, it actually is. It is because an organization cannot be incorporated and be a non-profit; it is either a corporation, or a non-profit, it can’t be both. While this could be argued as a simple oversight, looking into the list of New York’s registered non-profit organizations, one organization is missing: Francesca’s.

The above image brings fourth another problem. In the same post, Francesca, the family advocate, actually threatens Ashley Cooper with CPS. Now, for an individual who is “bringing down the system,” wouldn’t this be a bit counter-productive to her cause? If anything, it does demonstrate what lengths Francesca is willing to go to silence anybody who opposes her. Given the dialogue, one can presume that Francesca is fully aware of who Ashley is. Though this is also useless by itself, it plays into something we will be covering shortly.

Francesca Amato-Banfield

As we have stated, Francesca is a woman that has been encircled with controversy since 2017. With a variety of articles and YouTube videos, she has been repeatedly accused of being a con-artist. Furthermore, there have been many accusations regarding her friendships with registered sex offenders. In recent times, she faced accusations of spreading “sovereign citizenship” ideologies. One such example, comes from early 2019. Francesca Amato, alongside her typical group of associates, had a “one cure fix all” affidavit. While they claimed this affidavit worked, no evidence has ever been produced to validate this claim.

70458054_10156117127127303_9187273085839998976_n

In the first image we presented, it is clear that Francesca seems to know about Ashley’s case. Furthermore, she alleges to know enough to even know who the caseworker. However, in this most recent image, she is seen asking, “Who are you?” and, “Again who are you?” This question is a complete 180 from the original image. How does one implicate to know about another’s case if they don’t even know who that individual is to begin with? The fact that a self proclaimed advocate would resort to, what is essentially a form of blackmail, to silence anybody who speaks out against her, has only added to the controversy surrounding her.

Francesca Amato-Banfield, as we can tell from our research, is not an advocate. The amount of controversy, damaging information provided by her, and various other forms of questionable deeds has many people raising a brow. If the controversy isn’t about her directly, it surrounds her associates. One example of such is David Jose who, according to many people, takes money from a victim and then proceeds to block them. As if that isn’t enough, photographic evidence shows him illegally withdrawing funds out of bank accounts.  If you intend to use an advocate to fight your case, do your research. Don’t just pick the first beautiful flower you see, it may be toxic.

Secret “Congressional” meeting?

In the past, we have covered a group who allegedly scams families out of money. The families they often target are those fighting the CPS/DFS/DSS system. While this is already considered to be highly unethical, they appear to be completely oblivious to this. However, recently P4P’s (Punished 4 Protecting,) Francesca Amato-Banfield, David Jose, and a few others arranged a “congressional hearing.” According to the P4P team, they were going to be meeting with a few representatives of congress. During this time, they filmed a live video, which can be watched here.
This video brings up many questions. Among the questions:

1. Where are the representatives of Congress?
Notice, at no point during this video, are any of these alleged representatives seen. In fact, at no point do we ever actually hear them interact with the group in any form. If these representatives were truly there, wouldn’t they naturally be asking questions, or at minimum, conversating with the P4P team?
2.Where are the victims?
Now, these people had this “secret meeting” essentially on behalf of these CPS/DFS/DSS victims. So, with that in mind, where are the victims?

Francesca Amato-Banfield isn’t unfamiliar with being “exposed” online for her scams. Going onto YouTube, and even Google search, typing in her name will reveal videos, and articles, dating back to 2017. Another aspect of Amato that has, upon many occasions, concerned online advocates, is her past friendships with convicted pedophiles. You can find an article relating to this here. We could go deeper into this woman, however, we already have previous articles covering her and her affiliates.

The video, which was the alleged “congressional meeting,” is highly suspect. Not only have the online activists torn it apart, some of P4P’s own allies are beginning to question it. An actual attorney, Connie Reguli whom we have previously covered, came forward to “The Watchman’s” Randy Davis, and began discussing further questionable aspects of this meeting. The video, in its entirety, maybe watched here.

While the P4P team continues to make rather radical claims, none with actual documentation, it is apparent that people are beginning to see the pattern for what it is: A scam. On many occasions Francesca Amato has pushed for funding. Rather it be through her “self published” book, or with her controversial “consultations,” she exploits vulnerable families for all they are worth. Most of these families are unable to afford an attorney, they are desperate, looking for some form of hope. For a, what Amato claims to be a 501(c)3 (also proven to be false,) this truly brings a rather shady view toward her ethics. Regardless of your opinions of her, or the most recent video, we simply end this article with this: The evidence speaks for itself.

Black Salve: Abuse of animals?

For any pet owner, the concept that your beloved “fur baby” has developed a life threatning condition, such as cancer, can be overwhelming. While there are benefits in seeking potential alternative medicines (ie: CBD oils,) there are many alternatives that are not safe. Among these unsafe treatments is “Black Salve.” Before we get into the core of this article, let’s explain what Black Salve actually is.

Black Salve is a rather contraversial alternative treatment for cancer. Also known by it’s brand name, “Cansema,” Black Salve is believed, among it’s supporters, to literally burn away the afflicted tissue. However, in doing so, the product leaves behind a scar known as an Eschar. While there are many who support, and even endorse the “medical benefits” of Black Salve, it is important to understand that there is absolutely no evidence to support any medical claims regarding this product. However, what can be proven are the risks involved with using this dangerous “medicine.” Necrosis, which is literally the death, or dying of tissue, being one of the more severe effects of Black Salve. Other side effects include scarring, delays in legitiment medical procedures, ulcers, and even death.

PicsArt_08-27-06.03.04.png

In the above photograph, we have a very recent post to Facebook. In fact, this post was made just over a year ago. Within the post, the individual, identified as “Master Splinter,” explains that their mother’s pet was so inflicted with cancer that the vet suggested putting the dog down. In cases such as this, it generally means the pet is beyond salvation, the cancer has simply spread to far. Although an actual medical doctor gave this advice, clearly that wasn’t going to fly with this poster. Instead, they went to an alternative practitioner, whom also claimed to be a doctor. Now, let’s point out two problems with this First off, falsely proclaiming to be a doctor is a felony. Secondly, even if the individual at “Herb Healers” was a doctor, it’s doubtful they would suggest using a dangerous product, such as Black Salve, on your dog.

As we continue to read the post, it’s obvious this “Master Splinter” gave the dog Black Salve orally. At this point, we may as well claim “animal abuse;” in fact, in a recent comment, somebody did, in fact, make this claim. The proceeding conversation is photographed below.

JPEG_20190827_180809_6324969098982490535.jpg

 

Clearly, with the Black Salve supporters, stating factual information, such as destroying your dog’s internal organs, makes you an “animal hater.” However, we would have to dispute that. Based on the information we have regarding Black, we would have to concur, this poster should be arrested. While we may agree, the next comment clearly has a different view. If by “saving lives” they mean subjecting their pet to a slow, painful death, than we agree. The poster did a wonderful job of destroying their pets’ body. However, if curing the animal was the objective: they failed epically.

Black Salve is not unfamiliar with contraversy. Those who support and endorse it, are willing to spread their pseudo-science based information. Those who oppose it, do so because of the dangers involved with its use. We haven’t found any updates to this post. However, we presume this dog passed away from this unconvential form of abuse/medication. While we strongly suggest not using this product for any reason, we also recommend that people conduct their own research. Look into Black Salve, see for yourself the information that is available.

Super “Starr”

When we released the article on Francesca Amato, it was only logical that we would, in time, write this article. Looking into the self proclaimed “advocate,” Jamie “Starr” Johnson. While Jamie isn’t as popular as some of the others, she is equally, if not more, diabolical than the Fran club.

Jamie, while it isn’t confirmed to us, appears to have gotten her name known through a specific case. The mother, Nikki (lastname omitted) had a child who was hospitalized. We are going to spare the details as that isn’t prudent for this article. We may cover that at a later time, only with the mother’s consent. To make a long story short, while the child was dying in the hospital, Jamie made multiple videos to which she exploited the situation. Bear in mind, that nobody related to the child had knowledge of this until much later.

In time, the child did pass. Jamie retreated to the hospital grounds, just outside the hospital. Again, without the family’s knowledge or permission, a livestream was made. During the video, Jamie, without consent, had announced the untimely death. Naturally, this created a rather large rift between Nikki and herself. The exploitation didn’t end there, however. While the mother begged her former “advocate” friend to cease, Jamie continued to exploit the death, all while Nikki publically demanded that she stop. From this point forward, Jamie’s shattered legacy spirals downward.

Contraversy involving the self proclaimed advocate doesn’t end there, however. Recently, there have been several images discovered pertaining to the “super starr.” While taking seductive images is not a crime, it has many people asking, “should a family adcocate act in this manner?” The answer is simply, “NO.” When proclaiming to be a family/child advocate, there are certain expectations that one must uphold. For example, an off duty officer posts racially driven statements, they are suspended. While Jamie defends the images, it has risen much concern regarding her advocasy. However, we will let the evidence speak for itself. At the end of this article, we have attached some of the images.

Jamie has caught even more attention. In a recent livestream, in which Rudy Orr and Randy Davis seem to make amends, Jamie went on the offensive. Among words of encouragement, Jamie began a vicious attack against Mr. Davis. During this assault, one of our own began to challenge her. He asked, on several occasions, for evidence to support her claims. Among her claims were: stalking, harassment, and slander. As of the time we wrote this article, Jamie has still failed to provide any evidence.

Following the assault, Randy and Rudy conducted another livestream, openly inviting Jamie to partake. They are heard repeatedly questioning rather or not Jamie would appear to present her evidence. Jamie did not. In fact, while they were doing the livestream, she had apparantly been commenting in the initial post, containing her assault. As far as we can tell, she has no evidence to present and thus avoided any subject to which she is called out.

If this is what an advocate is, I truly feel for any family who are desperate. Before choosing an advocate, look into them. It is strongly suggested that you not only check into them criminally, but morally, afterall it’s your children who depend on you to make the correct choices. We are going to assist in the moral department. Here is your potential advocate.

John Anderson: quick review

Normally, I try to avoid writing about idiots and their frivolous smear campaigns. However, there is one being conducted that reminds me a bit to much of one I went through in 2017 and finally ended early this year. With that in mind, I felt compelled to write this. The group, “Support Actor John Anderson & Friends,” appears to be where it started. Their target: Meko Haze. Another group, presumed to be operated by the same people, “Monster Hunters,” has taken up the campaign as well. So who is John Anderson?

John Anderson is a self proclaimed “pedophile hunter.” in a recent post, to which they “expose” TDH Meko Haze, they go to say:

“This is the man we all confronted(,) associated with Elizabeth mason, John Aster, and many more exposed frauds and convicted pedophiles.
Keeps calling John Anderson’s number in direct attempt to ruin his case against Francesca Banfield and convicted pedophile John Aster, mark W Mumma, and more.
Meko just did a live trying to tarnish the case John Anderson has going against the exposed scum.
He keeps calling and using others to act as John Anderson in other calls he stages using spoofcalling.”

Let’s break this post down. To start, there is the accusation of being associated with frauds and pedophiles, they also claim to have confronted Meko. Upon our research, we found this to be completely false. To start, their idea of “confronting” is to block anybody who challenges this, or their various other claims; we learned this first hand when one of our guys called them out on their page and requested to see their evidence. This, if anything, confirmed with us that this was a case of slander. To address the pedophile aspect: this claim is derived because Meko is alleged to have a friend, who has a friend on the registry. That is not the claim made by their post, however.

They go onto list people he is apparantly in association with, another claim easily debunked. Not to long ago, “TDH” exposed Francesca Amato as a con-artist. If that is association, it’s a poorly done one. As for the other individuals listed, we found no evidence that they are pedophiles or any association with “The Daily Haze.” They go onto make the claim that Meko had been calling John Anderson. In a recent livestream conducted by Meko, not only is it obvious that John Anderson is the caller, it becomes clear that even this statement is false. The evidence further comes from another post Meko had made, to which he remarks about ignoring John’s wife who attempted to make contact months prior.

So let’s look into John Anderson. As I previously stated, he is a self proclaimed “pedophile hunter.” While he proclaims himself to be an “actor,” we had found no evidence to support this proclamation. But we did find a couple of videos, one that has Anderson in a world of trouble. In 2018, Anderson livestreamed a video. Within the video, he lists off individuals that he intended to murder. Within his list he names off Geri Pfeiffer, John Aster, and countless others; this is just one video. In a second video, Anderson can be seen attempting suicide. In the 35 minute video, Anderson is seen in a suicidal state speaking to an officer. While we essentially ruled this as an attention grabber, he had apparantly been called a pedophile himself. We find it ironic how those accused go onto orchestrate smear campaigns against others.

The issue with smear campaigns of this nature comes from the lack of evidence required to make it take flight. While no evidence is required to destroy an innocent life, the victim is often left having to prove the accusation false. The twisted aspect to this? Often times it is impossible for the victim to ever disprove the claim. In the end, the results of a campaign such as this will fall into two categories: those who believe the victim, and those who won’t.

For further information, and to see the videos, you can read the article published by “The Daily Haze” here.

“Advocate” exploits sexual abuse victim

In a perfect world, we wouldn’t have to write this article. Something that should be obvious, apparantly isn’t for Francesca Amato-Banfield. Obviously, you shouldn’t exploit a sexual abuse victim as a means of pushing sales on your book. Nor should you use such a case to gain momentum for your “organization.” Francesca has done both.

A video, containing a father and a child of approx 5yo, has the Facebook community in an uproar. In the video, the father, identified as Sean Windingland, is seen speaking to his daughter. We won’t go into full detail due to the graphic content. In short, it is him asking about her previous consent to perform sexual acts together. With a topic this hot, it is not to our amazement that the scammers would jump in.

Francesca, earlier today, did a livestream in which she displays the video. As a “child advocate,” the most fundamental understanding of protecting a victim child’s identity should be a no brainer. Francesca, however, failed to understand this. Blasting the uncensored video, initially posted by the group, “Pedo-Hunters,” the child’s face is seen to all. But the video goes downhill.

Within the first five minutes, Francesca (pictured below) begins promoting her own book. What starts out as a rant regarding a pedophile father, tirns into an advertisement for “best seller.” Within the video, she later begins advertising her own organization while pushing her radical agendas.

One thing is clear from watching this video. It is obvious that she conducted no research into the child’s situation. If Francesca had spent a little more time doing research, and less time advertising, she would had learned that the victim is now with the mother, away from the father. She would had also known that the child is completely safe, at this time, thus making her entire video redundant and void.

However, she failed to do any research. For Francesca, this appears to be a habitual problem. Rather it be making accusations against those who oppose her scam, bullying victims, or simply spouting off, it seems that she does next to no research into her claims. Her other pattern seems to be broadcastimg her book. A good writer has no need to push their work as she does. The reason is simply because it’s good. The readers would spread it around naturally. The fact that she has to constantly advertise her book leads me to question its sells. Has it sold only a few copies?

Regardless of this, it is clear that Francesca screwed up here. As an advocate she should had placed the safety and dignity of this child first. She should had declined to show the video, perhaps just played the audio. However, because Francesca saw an oppurtunity to advertise, she may have done more harm than good. This young girl’s face will forever be online, her story and identity exposed to the entire world. Not only was this neglectful, this was absolutely immoral.

A simple blurring of the girl’s face would had prevented many things. It would had also se ured the child’s integrity. Because Francesca was more concerned about making a quick dollar, this child’s identity has been further exposed. What effects it will have on the girl are yet to be seen. What is crystal clear, however, is bow low Francesca is willing to go just to promote a book and organization.

Is the movement a failure? A review of the CPS movement

If there is something that can be disputed, chances are it has a movement against it. So it should be presumed that something as contraversial as CPS/DFS would rally an entire network of advocates, activists, and victims alike. Because of current technology, as well as social media, to get involved in such a movement is fairly easy, to say the least. But is this movement legit or is it just a satiracal joke?

The CPS movement, as a whole, has a rather powerful concept with an equally powerful message. Like a painter crafting on their easle, they blast a powerful message: “stop taking, killing, adopting, and trafficking our children!” From the outside, the movement appears to be an army worthy of any advesary. From the inside, that’s where we begin to see its true form.

As journalists, we often get the “help me” cries. Parents who have lost their children, blindly walking into a maze littered with snakes, waiting to strike their heels. To conduct a story on such cases, however, we have to establish credibility for it. For example, if a parent gave their child “Drano,” obviously, we couldn’t absolve them within the article. For the parents that don’t contact independent media platforms, they reach out to the advocates of Facebook. But are they safe in doing so?

In a perfect world, they would be. However, as recent and old articles demonstrate, that is not always the case. With any movement of potential, there are always preditorial people hoping to make a quick dollar from it; the CPS movement is of no exception. Sadly, this sort of movement seems to attract these predators.

In 2017, we all witnessed the first of these people. A CPS case, which was still open at thus point, had case files blasted all over Facebook by a 501c3 organization. The organization obtained intimate details of the open case, and in a sudden “smear campaign” released these documents for the entire world to see. People, naturally were enraged, at least those with ethics, and began a counter assault. By the end of it, people were accused of “pedophilia,” actively, and offline, stalked, and smeared along with the CPS victim.

But this is one example. Another organization, ran by Connie Reguli, willfully allowed a convicted pedophile into her group. During this time, until his account was was terminated per Facebook policy, he had been collecting information for a book. However, when reading his book, all we found was a confession to his crimes alongside material written by others. Where did the various collected information really go?

Beyond that, we have another woman pushing the sovereign citizen agenda, the very ones that landed Ronnie Davis in prison. She pushes an affadavit, a highly illegal one at that, claiming it will help in any CPS case. While a magical “cure-all” would seem appealing, her claim isn’t without flaw. First, why hasn’t she posted evidence that it works? And why has nobody come out to reinforce that it works?

These are just a few examples of the plagues within the movement. But there are more problems than just scammers and cons; the movement has issues within its actual legitimate groups. Many, if not nearly all, of the groups suffer from “in fighting.” In fighting is a commonly used term to which advocate A deals a blow to advocate B and so on. When a group is dealing with victims, stress is the last thing they need. However, the fighting continues regardless. But it doean’t stop there.

Over the years, we have gotten many CPS coverage requests. For whatever reason a child was taken and the parents need the media. For 99.9% of these claims, they share one commonality. Upon being asked for documentation, primarily sl we have an understanding of the case as CPS sees it, we never actually get those. When asked, the families grow silent all while slamming CPS for removing the child(ren.) It almost seems like they have something to hide. Credibilty is everything within a movement. If the movement lacks credibility, nobody will take it seriously. But, this movement has a few redeeming, and legit people.

For some advocates, merely speaking out isn’t enough. In fact, some cover a variety of subjects. For instance, Randy Davis of team #revitup. Rosemary Dalton of M.A.F.A., and even Geri Pfieffer of America’s Taken Children. These groups, and organizations, are a collective of passionate indivuduals. While they work in different ways, they work together, even if they are unaware of this factor.

Team #revitup, if you are unaware is the “no bulls***” group. With Randy Davis, no relation to Ronnie, the corrupted are exposed in elegant glamour. M.A.F.A. is the group of compassion. Ms. Dalton has devoted many years of her life, even with failing health, to comfort and show love to families in need. America’s Taken targets the children who have been forcibly adopted. With her group, she gives these families the tools to potentially reunite and become a family once more.

Every movement has its flaws, thisone is by far an exception. But, like any movement, you can see the darkness within or you can choose to see through the darkness within. While we do not believe the entire movement is legit, there are glimpses of truth and credibility within the twisted wreckage. That is what we should be promoting.
