The Maya chat (Gallery)

The controversial images have been omitted, only leaving a notation for their location. Below, is the entire chat, up to the point Maya sent the third image. You will notice my lack of response, though I was reading these messages as she sent them. This gallery is to prove, once and for all, that Maya herself ilhas sent the very images she tried to file a CP report on.

Maya sends alleged CP image.
After calling me disgusting, as if I had requested the images, she resends the initial image. Note that I had not responded to any of her DM’s.
Because Maya had to be the one who released the initial document, she would be incorrect. She was not doxxed as she made it public the moment she sent it online.
Not going to lie, I actually began tuning her out at this point. I had work to do and her constant bombardment of messages was getting old.
Again, without me asking, or even responding to her, she sends me image number 3. She then refers to my article as Bullshit, while making herself appear to be mentally unstable.

As I have stated, Maya sent my platform three images that she herself alleged to be CP. This means that she most likely filed a false report against the 16yo who she also alleges doxxed her when he released one of the images.

Is Auburn PD protecting a Youtuber?

In recent months, an image of Youtubers’ Daniel Sulzbach (Repzion,) girlfriend, Maya Moore, began to circulate. Since its release, the image has become a focal point to massive controversy. According to both, the Youtuber, and his girlfriend, the image in question was taken illegally. That’s just part of the fiasco circulating the image. They also claim the image to be child pornography. That is the second reason I decided to write this article.

Our previous article had very clearly gotten Maya’s attention. In fact, it enraged her to the point of making direct contact with me on Twitter. During this verbal assault, Maya made a point to send this image to me, all while I remained unresponsive. Unfortunantly, she didn’t just send the image once. Upon sending the image, she sent a message saying, “you are fucking disgusting,” and then proceeded to send the image a second time; shortly after, she made a point of sending another image which appeared to be from the same video.

After this, I made the choice to inform her that our article would not be taken down. However, I still had this potential evidence that Maya herself just sent my platform child porn. Upon conducting research, I had found which police department Maya had filed a report claim, citing these images as child porn; I gave them a call hoping to discuss the fact that she had just sent my platform the images.

Although I explained the reason for my call, I have yet to get a call back. Why wouldn’t they call an individual, who is reporting the distribution of potential CP, back? There are two potential reasons I see for this, though they make Auburn PD look bad.

The first theory dives into the original report filed by Maya and Repzion. In this theory, it’s possible that the police did not take the report seriously. Of course, this raises even more questions regarding the department as a whole. One would think this would be a serious accusation, after all, it is a felony for a reason. Of course, there is theory number two, which still makes the department look bad.

Repzion, in at least one known instance, made a claim that he is on the departments’ “no swatting” list. During my investigation I found that the department did, in fact, have a registry. While this could be a good thing, it also brings the question of rather or not Repzion is being protected. If the department had falsely presumed my call to be a swatting attempt, they would simply shrug it off. This means that no investigation would be started, no call back, and Maya got off free for sending an image that she claimed to be CP.

The image being sent raises many red flags. Because she sent it to my platform, after calling it “child porn,” it leads me to believe that she lied. If this is the case, that means she knowingly filed a false police report simply to cover her actions. It also means that they have willfully slandered and defaced the reputation amd image of a 16yo child. In the worst case scenerio, the images sent to my platform are CP. This still is a terrifying situation.

If the image is truly CP, it means that Maya, who is now an adult, is distributing sexual images of a minor, a felony if convicted. Although the image is of her, in the court system, that will not matter; CP is CP regardless of who sends it. Worst of all, it demonstrates how lazy that department is, when faced with serious allegations. Regardless of this, I have contemplated on a question of my own, being that she sent me these images, unprovoked and unwanted, how am I the disgusting one? A question I will most likely never have an answer for.

Twitter account sparks outrage

As with any social media site, Twitter has a vast culture of thoughts, opinions, drama, and even the occasional racism. When things, such as racism, occur, it’s generally a matter of time before the flood gates open, unleashing a berage of hate toward the individual.

In a series of racially targeted speech, Twitter user, “tauralovesallpeople,” made a vast series of hateful tweets. The targets of her content, the black community, witnessed everything from a photo of the user in “black-face,” posts discussing how George Floyd deserved to die, and much more. While the black-face image was removed, she ultimately reposted it saying, “Got deleted, so I’m posting again. IT WAS A NOKE N***** RELAX.” Naturally, this created outrage.

Using a secondary account, now removed, this girl makes yet another racially targeted tweet.

So what is black-face? Black-face is the act of making your face look as though it has black skin. This act goes back decades and was commonly used as a method lf mocking, degrading, and insulting the black community.

Upon posting the image, for the second time, it is presumed that Twitter took a final stance on the situation. Upon looking for her two accounts, I quickly discovered that they had been terminated. This was most likely done as a result of violating their “terms of service.” Does it end here? Possibly not.

While Twitter has apparantly deleted her accounts, the young lady behind the posts could see herself in litigations. While something like this is generally civil, it is possible for the state to file criminal charges, all it takes is for somebody to file them. Furthermore, as we have seen with certain public officials, it’s also something that could return to haunt her later in life. In this situation, deleting her account was the best response. However, that doesn’t prevent her from creating another one at a later date.

Article II: more criminal activities revealed

Update after the editor’s notation.

Recently, I wrote an article regarding the girlfriend of the well known Youtuber, Repzion. In the short time, since its release, more details have arisen. This article is going to dive into the details, not mentioned previously. Though I may get hate for this article, the truth is the truth and it will be told.

Doxxing revisited

In the previous article, we discussed the doxxing of a 16yo minor. Though this is a very serious ordeal, the doxxing wasn’t the end. Since the time of the initial dox, we have been able to make contact with this young man. He, alongside multiple sources, have confirmed the brutal torment endured as a result of the information leak. The police being repeatedly called, false pizza orders to his home, and even death threats are just some of the things these “grown” adults have put this child through. It gets worst: he isn’t the only one to have been doxxed.

Another alleged victim, who we will identify as Jane, was also a victim. The reason for her dox? She was accused of releasing photographs of “Repzion’s” deceased grandfather. Though I have not been able to locate this young woman, I did find a conversation to which swatting her was discussed. I will include the image below.

The most disturbing image I came across, confirmed our victim, Jane, had been doxxed. In the post, Repzion is tagged. The question simply asks rather or not it’s her address. We have included a blurred version of this photograph. Upon asking the question, the poster goes onto thank Maya for the victim’s full name.

A tweet, which not only contains doxxed information, but also implicates Maya’s involvement.

So what is “swatting?” Swatting is the act of making a false police report, generally of a violent nature. The intent is to get the police to initiate their SWAT unit. Once this happens, the unit will force entry into the victims’ home, only to find the call to be bogus. Meanwhile, the victim is left emotionally distraught, and cases of PTSD have been reported from this act. With this, I find it disturbing that Maya is apparantly encouraging the act by stating, “I don’t give a fuck if you swat her, you might end up being my friend.” She then goes onto encourage harassment, stalking, and bullying. If you haven’t guessed yet, all of this is illegal.

In another photo, which is shown below, Maya is shown to have released her victims’ work location. In her post, she encourages people to “go crazy.” The phrase, “go crazy,” is extremely vague. However, the intention behind the post is not. At this point, it’s clear to me that this woman is a threat to anybody who crosses her path in the wrong way.

In a tweet, Maya is seen encouraging her followers to ruin a young woman’s life. All of this over a photograph?

While doxxing in itself is not illegal, it can become so based upon intent. In this situation, we have a woman who is encouraging people to harass, stalk, bully, and even attempt to get her victim fired from her place of employment. All of this together goes beyond a simple doxxing case. This now falls into the realm of stalking. Bear in mind, a 16yo minor is going through this very situation as we speak.

Camgirl and rape

Maya has made claims that she was within the age range of 14-17yo when she took a now infamous image. During my further investigation into this, I had found several claims stating that she was a “camgirl” during this time. Doing what any journalist would do, I ask this simple question: why has she not been charged for the distribution and production of child pornography? In the past, we have seen cases to which minors were charged under these very conditions. I had also discovered a contradiction, while investigating this.

I discovered that there was a contradiction in regards to Maya’s age. It seemed as though her age changed depending on the post. For instance, we have the 14-17yo claim. However, I also found a claim to which she states that she was 15yo. Meanwhile, Repzion claims her to have been 16yo. Why is that? Though I have no answers, I do have my theories. However, for now, I will leave you to your own conclusions.

One of the more disturbing statements I found, was that to which discussed rape. In her statement, Maya says, in regards of Jane, “she can get raped and thrown thrown into a ditch and we can post her photo all over the internet to see vile cunt.” I don’t even have to explain why this is disturbing. I can, however state this: if this victim were to get raped, hand an image were to be posted, Maya would have a lot of legal problems befor her. To begin with, she would would automatically be considered a person of interest. In this instance, she maybe considered a suspect due to her statement.

This situation is not one to be taken lightly. It shows that Maya is not above breaking the law, destroying lives, and being exceptionally vicious in doing so. While I have collected a wide variety of evidence, I remain curious about the information we don’t yet know. In the past few days I have seen hate speech, doxxing, stalking behaviors, and the list just seems to grow. If a 16yo child isn’t safe from this woman’s vindictive behavior, I can’t see any possible way that anybody else would be. While I do not know, nor ever spoken to Maya, I believe I have a fairly solid idea as to who she is.

Editor’s Notation

War on Corruption is willing to work with and cooperate with any police investigation relating to this situation. Upon request, we will forward all evidence to any law enforcement agency requesting them. You may find our email address at the below locations. Alternatively, you may DM us on Twitter or Facebook directly. Please leave a contact number for your department.

Update

As it turns out, Maya was not a minor when she posted certain images, the same images they allege a 16yo boy had posted. When asked about it, Repzion refers to it as an “error in math.” What this means is he, alongside his girlfriend, knowingly filed a false police report against a child. Regardless of the fact he refrences it to revenge porn, that is not what they told contacted the police about. As he himself publically tweeted, they called the police in regards to the distribution of child pornography. Photos below.

The online circus

This was an investigation that, due to lack of a better phrase, found us. Prior to a couple of days ago, I was oblivious to a circumstance revolving around the Youtuber, “Repzion” and his girlfriend. However, that changed when his girlfriend, Maya, messaged my team. Due to the messages, I began probing into her.

I found a claim regarding a doxxing event, and from there, I nose-dived into the rabbit hole. Sadly for me, I had no idea as to what I was about to find. Because of the complex nature of this situation, I am forced to narrow down the scope. For this article, I am only looking at the potentially illegal activity, alongside posting the evidence. There is one exception to this: a photograph that is claimed to be revenge/chil porn. For obvious reasons, we cannot post that image, even blurred. Now, before we dive into this, I will not be using her name. This isn’t for legal reasons, this is a to vile to be formally addressed reason. Let’s dive in.

Hate Speech

While looking into the dox claim I discovered this little gem; this would prove to not be the only incident of hate speech. During a conversation, this “princess” makes it clear that white people are the “superior” race. In another image I obtained, she speaks of traveling to South Korea and obtaining a nuke with the intention of bombing Isreal. Granted, while it may had been a joke, it is also identified as planning a terroristic attack, a felony no person wants. As if potentially plotting a terroristic act wasn’t enough, I had also stumbled upon this image (picture below.)

Though the situation remains unknown, one thing remains clear: there is never an excuse or justification for attacking any person based upon their skin color. But, sadly for me, this rabbit hole wasn’t over yet.

The attack of a child

A 16yo boy had allegedly released some controversial images regarding this woman. Through this act, the police were called, as she claims to have been a minor at the time, the photos were taken. This situation brought forth some questions. For instance, how did this child obtain these images in the first place? As it turns out, she allegedly released them herself.

Here’s where it becomes legal for this woman. Her and her boyfriend called the police on a minor child for releasing these images. Though that is legally a distribution of child porn situation, she was the one who allegedly took the photographs prior to their release. Though it’s never good when images of this nature get out, this is a situation where both her, and this 16yo child, could have been met with some very nasty consequences.

In a conversation, of which we cannot present the image, this wonderful person was involved in a conversation to which a nude image was released. So far, I have seen multiple postings that discuss this being a revenge porn situation, which is also a criminal offense.

Going back to the 16yo child, it appears that the situation for him has degraded, resulting from his action. The thing to remember is the fact he is a child, thinks like a child, and acts like a child. What several adults, and I use that term loosely, have done is nothing short of disgusting.

So far, I have seen doxxing claims, harassment, potential slandering, and outright bullying from these wonderful adults. Let that sink in: adults are terrorizing a child over an impulsive childish act. For me, this was my deciding factor on writing this article. Regardless of what this child has done, bringing fourth a public, and virtual, onslaught against him is absolutely vile. While the woman, to which this article is about, may not be involved with every aspect of this, there are tweets of her fighting with this kid, which could have initiated the targeting.

Message that was sent to a 16yo child from an unknown individual. The threat here, beyond the dox, is an act called “swatting.” This is when you make a false police report, initiating a swat team response. This has not only gotten people killed, it is a felony.

Doxxing

By this point, it should be apparant that doxxing is the “go to” crime for online bullies. In an image, posted below, this young woman is clearly observed promoting the activity, so long as it’s against specific people. Regardless of who the people are, she is still promoting a criminal act.

As if the doxxing of a child weren’t enough, it seems that it’s okay to simply dox anybody they don’t like. There’s just one problem to this. Doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, not to mention the prison sentence. If you have a good prosecutor, they can stack the cards against you, giving you a hefty sentence. In other words, don’t do it.

This is a very complicated case. While there are many other angles I could tackle, it’s just not possible to do so with one article. What started out as a hostile message toward my team, has taken me down a very interesting rabbit hole of criminal activities. From revenge porn, hate speech, and the bullying of a child, I am glad that this got my attention.

COVID-19: Reality Check

For months now, we have seen abuse from the government unlike anything before. While most Americans are perfectly fine with the loss of their first, fourth, and even sixth amendment rights, some are beginning to wake up. As a result of this, social disobedience is quickly becoming a common trend. With so much confusion, who is in the right?

The introduction of COVID-19 introduced more than a new potential threat, it brought out mass fear and even hysteria. As the government began learning about the virus, they implimented some rather debatable “safety procedures.” Social distancing, masks, that sort of thing has now become common practice. However, many debate as to rather or not they went to far.

First amendment

Under the first amendment, all Americans are granted the freedom to practice their religions. What this means is the government has no legal grounds to interfere with this, or other, rights. However, since the COVID-19 situation began, we have seen that very ordeal unfold. In several cases, those who have dared to break the “law” of not going to church, were met with arrest. How is this possible? A simple loophole is all it takes, more on that later.

On social medias, such as Facebook and Youtube, those who are speaking out against the governments’ actions, are finding themselves censored, ability to post/comment blocked, or outright banned. In a controversial move, Facebook has gone as far as to form its own “Supreme court.” The intent of this is to determine what is, or is not, allowed on their site. However, this has lead to many conspiracy theories.

Fourth Amendment

Under the fourth amendment, all citizens have the right to be secure in their persons, homes, and property. At this point, we may as well just rule this one a dead right. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have seen what happens to those who dare to defy their government overlords. While initially, the “safety protocols” were mere suggestions, people have been brutally beaten and arrested by police. Their crime? Daring to run their businesses.

There are many articles discussing how the police have arrested business owners for literally committing no crime. By violating the “recomendations,” and being arrested for it, proves that these are not just suggestions. Furthermore, they demonstrate the more disturbing image at hand. It was Adolf Hitler who once said:

“The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way, the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed.” For many, this is what’s happening. Of course, when it’s a $1000+ fine for not wearing a suggestion on your face, it does seem plausible.

Sixth Amendment

The right to a speedy trial. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you already know that this has been absent. Upon getting arrested, one could expect to sit in jail for an undetermined amount of time, with no courtdate. Why? Because the courts shutdown. While this is starting to change, it doesn’t change the fact that this right may had potentially been violated. Of course, this is just another cog in the political wheel.

What we have seen is nothing less than government operated terrorism on its people. Criminals are being released from jails/prisons over alleged COVID fears. However, people are being sent to jail simply for operating their own businesses. Places where facemasks are “mandatory,” don’t even care what you wear on your face. A person can walk aroumd with tissue paper on their face and have no problem.

From what I have seen, this os a game to strip citizens, using fear and false numbers, of their constitutional rights. The worst part of this, we are allowing it. When you really begin to dig into this, the contradictions become very apparant. This situation is no longer about protecting the people or preventing the spread of a virus, which has an approx 3% fatality rate globally. This is a war in which it is the government vs. the people.

Troy PD: A history of corruption exposed!

At this point, we should not be at all surprised by the law enforcement agencies of Missouri. For me, revisiting the police department of Troy Missouri brings back many unwanted memories. Since the time they last reached the scope of my radar, it seems they have only perfected their corrupted game. Today, I say it is time they are held accountable for their abuses, past and present.

Troy police department first got under my scope back in 2017. During this time, a young autistic woman was being bullied by a local 501(c)3 president. Although various calls were made, the department absolutely refused to act. When the virtual smear campaign reached critical levels, it was then that our platform aggressively defended the woman. The results of this action lead to a three year smear campaign against me personally. By the time it finally emded, there were nearly 40 additional victims, a false EPO, and a video we obtained to which the man believed he was livestreaming my home. All the while, the Troy police department failed to act.

The autistic woman was able to get a legit EPO against her cyberbully. With nearly 100 calls to the police, the woman was brought down to the point of suicide. At the same time, I was enduring my own smear campaign. Even when I was told to put a shotgun to my mouth, the police failed to act.

I could go on for days about this one situation, but we have previous articles about the subject. This isn’t why they have my attention yet again. The above information, if anything, only serves to provide a history on my detestment of this department. Let’s get into the recent behaviors of this classy group of incompetent misfits, shall we?

On a recent video, posted to Facebook, a man is assaulted on his own property. Apparantly the officers were looking for somebody and decided this guy was the guy. When questioned by another man, who is present, the officer is observed cussing the individual out as he informs him that he isn’t talking to him.

The officers begin speaking to a man in a black hat, all the while being informed that he isn’t who they are looking for. At one point, during this altercation, the man begins to walk away. At this point, the police had yet to establish that he had done anything wrong. Regardless, they begin to follow and then taze him. Once the man was on the ground, the officer is seen punching him, while unprofessionally cussing out the man and other residents.

The departments’ Facebook page holds other complaints of harassment. In one review, the harassment was initiated when a man dropped his car off, after hours, at a local business for repair. As with the video, the officer is accused of being rude, going as far as to say, “you’re in the wrong county, son.” This came as no surprise due to the widespread racism within the Missouri police departments in the region.

There are many vile officers serving on various departments. For Troy Missouri, it appears they recruit the rejected, most corrupt officers possible. If they like you, they will do nothing that will give you a record, even if you deserve it. However, if you accidently end up on their “wrong side,” you will be harassed, you will probably be arrested, and apparantly you will be physically assaulted.

The James Saroka case

My years of journalism has brought me across many vile people. With these people, I believed that I had seen the worst of society, as I have learned, I would be proven wrong. Our team stumbled upon James (Jim) Saroka by mere circumstance. While many have already begun investigating into this man, we conducted our own investigation. The results, thus far, are condensed within this article. I have also began collecting evidence in hopes of criminal charges being filed on Saroka.

Operating scams, lewd acts with minors, physical and emotional abuse are just a few of the accusations Saroka has against him. As with anybody accused of such things, we began the process of compiling information. We first researched his organization, “Feetpeace,” his Youtube estimated income, and evidence to support the lewd accusations. The internet has not failed to provide.

Abuse accusations

Several Youtubers have covered this, and other subjects already. The videos that captured my attention, were made by two individuals known as “Digital Goon” and “Repzion.” The videos show various uploads from Saroka which outline the abuse. They can be found here and here. The videos outline, in depth, the abusive nature of Saroka.

Within his many uploads, Saroka admits to physically abusing his girlfriend, Kaitlyn. While this is an arrestable offense, the abuse doesn’t end there. In multiple videos, he berates, degrades, emotionally abuses, and uses many other forms of manipulation tactics on her. While discussing these things in his various videos, not only is he proud of his actions, he appears to be proud of the attention he gets from it. Below, we have included financial stats from his Youtube channel.

The abuse isn’t just toward his girlfriend, however. There have been reports of Saroka sending lewd videos to children. In one video, allegedly sent to a girl around the age of 12-14, he is accused to have been masturbating. While this video has not been found, or confirmed, edited photos have begun to circulate the Twitter feed. One such image is below.

Provided to us by an anonymous source, this is allegedly what was sent to a child.

With the image above, a source sent us an offical statement. That statement reads as follows:

“He was a part of our youth group (bc he used to believe in God but now I’m pretty sure he believes he is God?) (ALSO I knew him bc he was one of my friends cousins) but anyway, we tried to include him in our group and such, he was a little off but never as crazy as he is now. I studied psychology in college and my theory is that he always had some type of underlying bipolar disorder, but that typically doesn’t come out until your late teens early 20’s BESIDES THE POINT. BUT he took a liking to my best friend and we were all just trying to be friends with him. I don’t remember how it got to this point but he ended up sending her a voicemail poem but it was very creepy, and it ended with us waking up dead. He said he was going to kill us all. Obviously as young teenage girls, we were freaked out so since it wasn’t something that we could go to the cops with (so we thought) bc it wasn’t actual assault, we called our pastor since this POS was acting like the actual devil. The pastor contacts him and invited him to meet up just to talk to him (since he also has a background in Psych) and just to see where his head is at and if any other actions needed to be taken. When they met up, they were talking and everything was fine and James just freaked out and attacked him. Started choking him and stuff. So of course he called the police and filed a restraining order.”

Feetpeace and scams

As if abusing his girlfriend wasn’t bad enough, the criminal activity doesn’t end there. Over the years, Saroka has made a profitable career of operating scams. The scams, which often are operated by his organization, “feetpeace international,” are directed toward helping other people. What we have learned is, at no point, has the people ever recieved any money from him. So where the money go?

Saroka often creates “donation campaigns.” Through sites, such as GoFundMe, he raises money for people in need. However, the money is actually going to James Saroka, not the targeted individual. Because his campaigns are so questionable, we began looking into the organization itself.

Using several governments sites, we ran a nationwide search for “feetpeace” and “feetpeace international.” The results came back with a message stating that no such organization could be found. This means that his organization does not exist legally. With this information, we as a platform, recognize his organization as another one of his scams.

The search results from the IRS.gov site.

For many, these scams have not gone unnoticed. We found reports, on a variety of sites, that discuss Saroka, his organization, and his scams. One site, picutred below, had reports going back to 2017. This only furthered our questions as to why he has yet to be criminally charged. While assaulting his girlfriend would most likely not be a felony, these scams would be.

One of his victims, Josh (42,) was scammed out of $60+ thousand. As he paid off Saroka’s debt, while raising his own, it was clear that this vulnerable man was paying with his health. When comparing two photos of Josh, it is apparant that after meeting Saroka, he had sacrificed food for himself.

Currently, we have reached out to Sugarloaf police department for comment. Though to date, we have not recieved a statement, we remain hopeful of obtaining one. In our inquery, we asked them about the fact no charges have ever been filed against Saroka. Should we get a response, this paragraph will be edited to reflect that.

In my years of journalism, I have come across a variety of predators and abusers. While all of them are vile, none compare to the level in which James Saroka has obtained. This man exceeds anything I have ever seen from any predator before, preying on people in multiple ways. Worst yet, this article only covered a fraction of what this pitiful excuse for a man has done. We plan to stay on this, working to get legal action taken against Saroka. Until that time, this article is the best we can do.

The COVID-19 tour

Recently, I took it upon myself to do a three week trip across country. This time was spent studying the affects of the virus in various locations. In this research I focused on local economies, civilian mindset, impact on various industries, and how COVID-19 has impacted various cities. impact

No matter where I traveled, one thing remained true: businesses were suffering. Practically overnight, Americas witnessed the loss of thousands of jobs, entire cities came to a grinding halt, and supplies began to run dry in local stores. Although grocery stores have worked hard at keeping supplies stocked, it appeared to be a losing battle. For many, entire aisles were baron or close to it. Many of the items that seemed to be high demand were things that could be stored for prolonged periods. This includes canned and frozen products.

As the mass hysteria set, items such as toilet paper, hand sanitizers, even hand soaps seemed to be a luxery item in some locations. Employee morale was clearly low, doing anything they could to keep the potentially infected public away from them. However, it extended far beyond local retail stores.

In every city I visited, the streets were practically deserted. While a few vehicles remained, it was clear that no opened business would be able to sustain itself for long. Fast food resturaunts had also taken a hard blow. Being forced to close their lobbies, the customers simply stopped coming. Though there was the occasional drive-through order, they weren’t like they used to be.

“I can’t support my family, I can’t pay my employees, and I am about to lose it all because of the f****** city forced me to close,” were the solemn words of a local resturaunt owner I spoke to. Clearly, the pandemic had hit him hard.

With the impact being so hard on the stores and resturaunts, I began to wonder how it affected the industry that was charged for delivering these products. With this in mind, I sought out the trucking companies. Though there are articles discussing this industry already, I wanted to find out for myself how they were handling the inner workings.

While researching the first company, I was invited to sit and observe their orientation process. Though the process, according to them, was three days, I decided one day was more than enough time to collect my data. Upon leaving, I took my journey to Dallas, Texas. With safety precautions in mind, I began my expedition.

Like Cedar Rapids, Dallas was essentially empty. Businesses that once thrived, stood as ghostly reminders of the world before the outbreak. While there, I had gotten word of a local business that was ignoring the safety precautions. Naturally, I had to locate this business for myself. ‘Big D,’ a truck wash, with parking, was confirmed to be ignoring protocols. Upon entry, I noted hotdogs being cooked. While most stations removed these to prevent further spread, this location did not. When asked about it, the clerk simply stated, “we are not violating safety precautions, now get out.”

Utah, Illinois, and so fourth, the scene was the same: fhost town after ghost town. With the scene being all to familiar, in so many cities, I couldn’t help but assess the mindset of the residents.

Precaution or hysteria?

With media crying the end of the world, social distancing, self quarantine methods, etc., I began looking into rather or not this was precaution or fear. I took what I had learned on this trip and began writing my observations down. It is here, I will be discussing them.

While all cities have taken precautions, some cities have taken it to an entirely new level. Salt Lake City, with plastic “shields” in front of the registers, have gone as far as to not directly take money from customers. While these precautions are, to a degree, understandable, they show the amount of fear people now live in.

City by city, fear creeped in, set itself into the social network, and shutdown entire nations. At this point, one can only wonder which is worst: the virus or the fear that follows in its wake? Sadly, this is a question that is purely opinionated and thus will never concieve a factual answer. Even with this, we can conclude that this fear stems from the fact that this is a “novel” virus, it’s an unknown agent that has entered our lives. I wanted to compare stats. How lethal is this virus in contrast to the things we are familiar. Below, is a grid displaying this very thing.

Comparing the death rates of COVID-19 to elements that we are familiar with.

It is hard to determine rather or not we, as a society, have handled this ordeal correctly. For this, future generations can only determine that based on the words of history. For now, society waits. Some wait for a resolution, others wait for the nightmare to conclude, and for some, they wait to grieve for those who didn’t survive. While the situation is horrible, history has shown that pandemics, such as this, do end. Until then, stay safe.

Handling a dox threat

This article isn’t like the ones we typically write. Instead, this is a basic guide into handling a dox threat, as well as handling the situation after a dox. My platform, and myself, aren’t new to this. In 2017, while facing a three year smear campaign, I had been doxxed, alongside my family. Needless to say, I have had plenty of time to prepare for another round.

Initial threat

If you have never been through something like this before, the mere threat of being doxxed can be a very serious element to contend to. Having your information made publically available, without your consent, not only places you in potential danger, but those around you as well.

Rather or not the dox happened, you must remain calm. Remember, if you go into a panic, you aren’t able to think clearly and therefore miss potential evidence.

Collect Evidence

Always keep a record of the evidence. The more you have, the easier it is to prove. If the would-be doxxer is broadcasting his intentions, screencap it. The same goes if they are bragging about past doxxings. Remember, doxxing can be a felony, it can have added charges such as stalking, and you cannot afford to not have enough evidence.

Find Support

In most cases, pertaining doxxing, the individual has a history of the behavior. With that in mind, finding former victims, who have been threatened or doxxed, may be critical. The reason for this is it demonstrates a past behavior. In the law enforcement field, the past behaviors will often dictate those of the future.

Centralize

As you collect evidence, especially from other victims, find a way to centralize it. By having it in one location, law enforcement is able to get to it mich more quickly. In the case of Vincent Nicotra, we have a gallery for this very purpose.

Statements

This is especially essential when reporting it to law enforcement, links provided below. Having a written, or typed, statement will allow you to summarize without the pressure. If going to the police with a prewritten statement, always be sure to sign the end of it.

Reporting

In cases to which there are multiple victims, this maybe a challenge. When reporting, and using other victim names, try to be accurate. If you do not know their real names, try using an alias they are known by. For example:

Youtuber: John Doe

Though it isn’t their actual name, it does give law enforcement a means of contacting the individual. So who do you report these crimes to?

First off, you want to start with your local law enforcement agency, this begins the legal trail. If all they can do is take a report, that’s fine, don’t be discouraged, you are making a trail that dhows you have reported the situation. Now, once you do this, you may file an ic3 report.

An ic3 report, as it’s commonly called, is the cybercrime division of the FBI. By this point, you would had hopefully collected the evidence needed, should they ask for it. However, it never hurts to mention, within your report, other victims, centralized evidence location (if applicable,) and any information you may know regarding the doxxer.
