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.

Vincent Nicotra: Doxxing

Earlier this year, people witnessed the moment journalist, Chris Hansen, terminated his web designer, Vincent Nicotra. The termination was a result of countless unethical behaviors that ranged from false DMCA claims to doxxing. While you would think the lesson would had been clear, it appears that Nicotra is back to doxxing.

Nicotra implying that she was doxxed. Being that he posted this, implies he had it done, or did it himself.

Doxxing

Doxxing is a common method for obtaining personal information about a targeted individual. If used to harass the target, doxxing can be classified as a form of stalking, one of many reasons it is illegal. Illegal doxxing is the method of obtaining personal information and posting it online with malicious intent, exactly what Vincent has a history of doing.

Due to the nature and legalities of doxxing, social media sites have options for reporting this behavior. Twitters’, for instance, can be found here. Beyond going to social media, a victim can report these crimes to agencies such as the FBI. Information on this can be found here.

With each dox Vincent continues on innocent people, it is obvious that he either doesn’t care about the legal effects or is completely oblivious to them. The facts are simple, in a case such as this:

  • What Vincent is doing is illegal.
  • His doxxing can be classified as stalking, especially since he has doxxed some people several times.
  • Vincent can go to prison for these crimes.
  • Being that most of his victims are spread throughout several states, he could face felony charges.

While it is unlikely that Vincent will ever stop without legal involvement, we still issue this article as a warning to him. Furthermore, we present this article with the hopes that his victims are able to get the justice they deserve.

Nathaniel Woods set to be executed

In 2004 the lives of three families were forever changed. Three Alabama officers were gunned down, killed, by who the state would later identify as Nathaniel Woods. For many, however, there are questions regarding his innocence.

Activists on Facebook took to the page of Governor, Kay Ivey, with the hastag, #FreeNate. While this has been going on for sometime, it has recently gained momentum. Much of the momentum stems from his execution date, which is March 5, 2020 at 5:00 pm. As per protocol, defense attorneys have contacted the Govenor in attempt to stop this from taking place. However, the office of Kay Ivey has outright ignored these requests.

In the case regarding the shooting, another individual had taken accountability as being the gunman. Regardless of this, it is evident that the state will proceed with the execution. The issue we see in this derives from the other individual who took accountability. Because of this, it opens the door to plausible doubt. With plausible doubt, the state should, if Woods were to have a legitimate fair and impartial, review the new evidence.

While activists continue to fight for the life of Woods, the clock continues to tick, potentially sealing the doors to justice. While it is very possible that he is the shooter, the concept that he isn’t, should at least be entertained. In any competent justice system, reviewing potential evidence, especially regarding a man who will die in mere hours, would be mamdated. However, Governor Ivey seems more determined to execute, regardless of the secondary confession.

Developing story: Woodson Terrace shooting

War on Corruption just recieved an exclusive in regards of a shooting that occured today. Though it is unconfirmed, at this time, that anybody has been injured, we do know some details regarding this situation.

At approx. 11:49 this morning, a birage of gunfire was heard by multiple residents. During this event, multiple houses and cars were damaged. At this time, the police are actively investigating. However, War on Corruption has obtained surveillance photage of the investigation.

According to residents, an unknowm individual, driving a Beige colored car is responsible for the shooting. Witnesses state, according to our source, the vehicle was observed driving West. We will do an update once one is availabe. The video can be seen below.

30 second clip of the investigation.

Updates:

We have reached out to the investigating department. Though they are keeping quiet, they did issue a short statement.

Raven Queen Official

A small Youtuber, known as “Raven queen official,” has become the centerfold of anger. From alleged videos containing animal abuse, confirmed videos of murder threats, she has violated, not only Youtube’s TOS, but multiple laws. Below are two examples of her videos, we are not uploading them to Youtube due to the content. While we could write out an entire article on this girl, we will just let her own videos do the speaking.

Notice: the content of the videos may be disturbing for some viewers.

Seen here, playing with a knife while making threats of harm.

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.

Completely unemployable: former DOC officer speaks to us again.

Last month, we did a couple of articles in regards of a former correctional officer turned whistleblower. This article is an update on their situation. We like to think that doing the right thing means being rewarded, this is not the case.

As you maybe aware, the whistleblower’s former department caught onto who they were. Once this happened, they were issued a cease and disist via email. However, the Department of Corrections didn’t stop there. Through a recorded phone call, we were able to verify that the former officer resigned due to ongoing abuse and unethical treatment from their acting captain. The abuse extended to not only inmates, but to officers the captain did not like.

Recap of the resignation

The officer, who we only identify as “whistleblower,” resigned in December, 2019. Through bank records, we saw what they identified as “the final straw.” The department deposited their paycheck into their account in late November. However, early December the same department somehow withdrew their entire paycheck out of the account. As of this time, the bank has refused to comment in regards to how this happened.

Further documentation has revealed that the department intended to place the officer on what they called “secondary” payroll, a move often done as a form of punishment. However, this never happened. What transpired can only be described as sadistic. Once the pay was removed, the captain, as verified in audio recorded calls, placed the officer back on “primary” pay. By doing this, it negated the secondary payroll, thus making it where the officer got no pay until January. The targeting didn’t end there.

What’s happening

Since leaving the department, the former officer has been deamed completely unhirable. Living on only the money saved in their bank account, the noose of time has a constant effect on them. Allegedly, the department has fabricated the situation, claiming the individual was terminated for violating a policy, one that we have already shown to not exist. We, as a media platform, have been assisting the whistleblower, locating potential places of employment in their area. At this point, we have began assisting with their bills when able.

This entire series has opened a floodgate into what happens to those who refuse to conform. It demonstrates a warning to anybody who seeks to be in law enforcement: “join the blue brotherhood or pay the price.” Sadly, this individual’s convictions caused them to be against this uniformed, unspoken code. However, this isn’t an isolated event. In the past, we have seen similar articles to this. It also demonstrates the amount of power behind these agencies.

Insider Report

Department of Corrections: Article II (insider information)

Previously, we had covered a few aspects of the department of Corrections and their operations. You may read that article here. Today, we are going to be expanding on this. Furthermore, as our insider has been discovered by their former department, giving an update to that situation. The intention of this article is to provide more inside information provided by an individual who would know best-a former officer. As before, their identity is being withheld to, at bear minimum, protect them from those who may wish to target them online.

Smackdown happy

We see it often in videos, the police brutally assaulting a person when it isn’t needed. However, we don’t see how officers often get away with this. According to our insider, a lot of it boils down to the wording on their reports. One example we were given is as follows: “when an officer utilizes use-of-force, rather justified or not, they are usually coursed on how the report should reflect that. For instance, if an officer body slams an inmate to the floor, a common occurance, their report will state that they ‘assisted’ the inmate to the floor. They do this because any report written maybe subject for court use; the officer can get into legal trouble if they state they body slammed the offender.” According to our insider, this is the big part of the foundation to getting out of legal responsibility for any injuries.

In cases where the force wasn’t warranted, the department has a tendancy to “doctor” reports, the classic cover-up. While this is publically denounced by D.O.C. it is a normal occurance. Furthermore, if an offender attempts to defend themselves from this, they are slapped with additional charges. These charges may include assaulting an officer, which leads to a longer prison sentence.

When the officer uses force, it is very common for jokes to be made, at the offender’s expense. These people take great pride, from what our insider saw, in laying the “smackdown” on those who may not be able to fight back. “Officers will generally make jokes such as ‘damn, talk about a rag doll effect, sucks to be them, and so on,” according to the insider. Officers, in many ways, are expected to have this mentality. Failing to do so usually results in being made a target by those who outrank you.

The “blue” brotherhood

“During my stint in working for D.O.C., I met a captain who was hardcore about the brotherhood. In the end, because I refused to act like the rest, I questioned him, I was made a target,” according to the source. Cadets who enter the department, with the “brotherhood” mentality, often find a high paying career. According to our source, if you aren’t one of these new officers, you are harassed and bullied into resignation, this also applies to seasoned officers.

While working there, our insider informed us of some of the harassment endured because of their former captain. Pay check being withheld for a month, constantly being in his office for various, and even petty reasons, and at the time they resigned, for violating a policy that did not exist within the department. As we are told, the above mentioned are only a few examples.

We asked the officer, aside the harassment, what was the final straw? What lead you to resign? Their answer is as follows: “the final straw, for me, was the captain getting the warden involved. I was supposed to go to a meeting, regarding violating a non-existant policy, a meeting that I knew meant my termination. The captain had already fucked me out of my pay, which meant, since we were paid monthly, I would go two months without a check. I simply had enough of their bullshit games, the amount of control over my life, and how they used threats to make us do what they wanted, even if we felt it unethical.”

We went on to inquire about the policy, we asked what policy did they violate, exactly? “Honestly, as stupid as this sounds, I drove myself to another facility, to which I was required to be at. I didn’t have the money to get to my home facility so taking a state car wasn’t an option,” was the very quick response given. As we could tell, it appeared that our insider actually violated the “blue brotherhood” code in several ways.

As we can tell, and as generalized law enforcement has revealed, this is a career of being a thug. Those who are thugs last. On the other hand, if you opt out of this mentality, you are bullied into resignation or even terminated. If there is no “justified” means, they fabricate one. Their job, according to the insider, is to ensure inmates don’t break out of the prison, do what they are told when they are told, and to ensure the institution operates smoothly.

Isolation

A disturbing concept of prison comes in the form of the “segregated housing unit” (S.H.U.) the unit is essentially a jail within a prison. This unit is classified as a “maximum” security unit. What this means for inmates is: they are locked down 23hrs a day, aside from weekends. They get one hour on a secured yard, Monday-Friday only. If an inmate gets in trouble, they maybe sent to this unit pending investigation. The investigation can take upwards of 30 days to complete. However, this month is actually extended as weekends aren’t counted. This means that if an investigation takes the full thirty days, the inmate will actually be in this unit for approx. 45 days. It was further noted that our insider has, by first hand account, seen the mental deteriation of those locked down.

Synopsis of the information

From this, and our previous article, it is clear to see how this system is in shambles. A system that treats human beings worst than animals needs a complete overhaul. Worst yet, we are only about halfway through our notes. Should there be enough interest, we will happily do article III on this.

Officers laughing and joking about injuring people is appauling. Officers targeting their own, simply for wanting to do their jobs, is just as bad. We often ask ourselves, “why aren’t there any good officers?” These articles are demonstrating the answer, as provided by, first hand experience.

Whistle-blower update

Our insider has informed us that after releasing our previous article, there has been some rather suspicious activity around their house. Daily, in some cases several times a day, police cars have been witnessed slowing down in front of their home. In several instances, the cars have been observed coming to a complete stop, the officer watches the home for a few minutes, and proceeds to drive away. Furthermore, they have informed us that several “unmarked” cars have been seen doing this. We are told this is a common practice when officers, or former officers, begin whistle-blowing their department. This seems, if it is a common occurance, to be a form of fear tactic, in our opinion.

Haunted house or legalized torture?

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

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

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

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

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

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

Exposure pages/groups: Legit or is it harassment?

In the field of journalism, regardless of the sort of platform you operate, you can expect that somebody will, at one point, challenge your information. Earlier tonight, a page calling themselves, the “Victim’s Rights Advocacy Group,” had made a video to which they target a few individuals. However, within the video, they make a claim that was found to be questionable. Doing what we do, one of our admins challenged the claim. The claim was against the girlfriend of journalist, Meko Haze, Paige Adrian Chapman. Though the accusation, in itself wasn’t much, it accused her of being a “traitor.” At this point, our admin asked to see the evidence.

“There are many sources of information that can be easily looked up. You can do your own homework and catch up. But if you insist we would be more than happy to do a “Traitors Caught Red-Handed” video.”

The above is a portion of the reply given to our admin upon challenging the claim against Meko’s girlfriend, Paige. If so much “information” exists, as the administrator claims, than why was it so difficult to simply provide the said “information?” In normal circumstances, it isn’t. However, it is much harder to produce information that doesn’t exist than it is to provide something that does. With this response, the agenda of this specific page became clear. At the end of the statement, the admin makes mention of creating another “video.” It is presumed, based on the overall context, that they would, in some way, include either our admin or the overall platform. We will use this time to make the following statement:

“You may create any video you wish, your 253 followers may enjoy it. However, if you wish to include War on Corruption, please bear in mind, that we are a much larger platform, on multiple sites. If you do create a video, by all means, let’s see some of this alleged evidence you were so unwilling to provide.”

A key point to know is if a platform is posting factual information, providing documentation isn’t a problem. At this point, however, the group’s owner, became aggressive, and proceeded to ban the individual prior to deleting comments. While that may not seem like a “big deal,” it actually sheds a lot of doubt into the credibility of her page. However, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen this sort of irrational behavior. Another group, “Un-blessed BIG Liars, Frauds, and Fakes” has displayed similar behaviors. But are groups like this actually legal?

Legal Issues?

Exposing an individual for malicious, illegal, or unethical deeds is one thing. However, looking into these groups, they go well beyond simply exposing an individual’s wrongful deeds; in fact, they borderline harass whoever they are after. So who makes this list? From what we can tell, it’s anybody who simply pisses the page owners off. While we have exposed some of the nonsense from Jamie, Fran, David, etc. we have always left it to specific situations. Beyond those situations, we have made a point of not hammering them. The pages in question, however, make a point of constantly harassing individuals they target, this is where the harassment aspect begins to form.

According to the dictionary, harassment is defined as,aggressive pressure or intimidation.” According to pacer.org, cyber harassment can include:

  1. electronic forms of contact
  2. an aggressive act
  3. intent
  4. repetition
  5. harm to the target

Over the years, I have seen many pages like this. They have three things in common.

  1. They rack up a few followers.
  2. They begin targeting individuals, groups, or pages.
  3. And finally, they seem to eventually phase out.

While we aren’t fond of some of the people mentioned on pages such as this, we are even less fond of blatently harassing, stalking, and bullying an individual. At some point, one must pull the ethics card. For groups like this, we have decided to do that very thing. We have seen personal information such as home addresses blasted into groups like this, what exactly is that exposing? If anything, information such as this can potentially place somebody into a dangerous situation; this is not “exposure.” This is outright digital stalking, and WoC is standing up against this behavior.
