Online crime fighter Stinson Hunter blasted by cops during public meeting

"At a public meeting held last night Warwickshire Police’s assistant chief constable Lewis Benjamin was asked for his perspective on Hunter’s actions.

Mr Benjamin responded: “He does it quite blindly. He doesn’t know if we’re engaging a police operation against his target.

“He may well drive them underground and ruin what we are doing.

“Secondly he could be putting the paedophile at risk. Some people might say so what? [... they've got a right to life, as well, and it could be endangering his safety... ] but also he could be endangering their family as well.

“People could get it wrong like that case in Cardiff where they attacked the paediatrician.

“It’s not a good thing to do.

“We have written to Mr Hunter and protested about his methodology and what he does. We are waiting to see what his response to that is.”"

The Paedophile Hunter Airing on Channel 4

"Unsurprisingly in our totalitarian society I expect that the documentary will be largely supportive of Stinson Hunter. The documentary will inevitably try to pretend that it is ‘impartial’ and claim to be to some extent critical of Hunter’s extra judicial actions, however, it’s underlying direction will be that the ‘public’ (whoever they are) are ‘sick of paedophiles’. Hidden behind a veil of political correctness the documentary’s message will be clear: A final solution is needed for the ‘paedophile problem’."

PSU Child Sexual Abuse Conference: Overview and Epidemiology

Sexting is the new normal for high schoolers, study finds

"Researchers at the University of Texas looked at the sexting habits of an ethnically diverse group of more than 1,000 high school students. The study is the first to analyze the relationship between teenage sexting and future sexual activity.

About one in four teens is sexting, and sexting is firmly linked with increased sexual activity. Researchers found adolescents who had sexted were more than seven times more likely to have engaged in sexual intercourse than their non-sexting peers.

But they were not more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors - classified in the study as unprotected sex, a high number of sexual partners in the past year and alcohol or drug use before sex.

"That we did not find a link between sexting and risky sexual behavior over time may suggest that sexting is a new 'normal' part of adolescent sexual development and not strictly limited to at-risk adolescents," write authors Jeff R. Temple and Hye Jeong Choi."

TV vigilante paedo [sic] hunter Stinson Hunter is no journalist

" a 'journalist' Hunter should be working with facts, and in many instances, the facts are that, despite his work, the men he confronts are not charged with any crime by police.

As a journalist, he should be referring to the people he encounters as 'a man' and not by name.

He certainly should not be posting video content showing their face to the entire world, often putting them at risk of being attacked by people who know them in their local area.

When The Sun published images of Christopher Jefferies, suggesting that he had murdered Joanna Yeates, they ended up paying £50,000 in damages for ruining his public image.

The Mirror also had to pay out for publishing the same images.

Sooner or later what Hunter is doing will bite him on the backside, and once one person has taken him to court, many others will be sure to follow.

I'm not saying I don't agree with what Hunter aims to achieve – I give him my full backing if it means making our streets a safer place.

But there are already so many things that give journalists a bad name, so the thought of adding a vigilante to the list doesn't appeal to me.

He either needs to conform to the same standards that all journalists do, or he needs to stop calling himself one."

Published 15 Oct 2014.

Newspapers divided over self-styled vigilante ‘journalist’

“There are already so many things that give journalists a bad name, so the thought of adding a vigilante to the list doesn’t appeal to me,” he went on.

“He either needs to conform to the same standards that all journalists do, or he needs to stop calling himself one.”

The Tamworth Herald, Hunter’s local paper in his formative years when he was imprisoned after a £250,000 arson attack on an empty school, agreed that “everyone is united in their revulsion to paedophiles”.

But in a leader column last month the paper admitted that “Hunter’s methods can be divisive.”

The weekly added: “He has thousands of fans on the Internet, but many question what he does, not least the police who have shown real concerns over his actions. Similar stings by others have failed to end in convictions and left innocent people’s lives in tatters.

“That is the devastating power of the lens.”

The vigilante’s actions have had the most tragic consequences when it emerged that last June a 46-year-old man killed himself after he was confronted by Hunter over claims he had groomed a 12-year-old girl."

Paedophile [sic] 'stings' put targets' children and families at risk, say police

"Some have questioned the effectiveness of the police to investigate these types of cases, but I would like to reassure the public that we have a team of specialist officers doing excellent work in this difficult area.

"Since January 2012, 164 people have been prosecuted for committing 404 sexual offences against those under 18. In the last 12 months we have launched 33 separate investigations into online exploitation, including working with the National Crime Agency on the high-profile national investigation Operation Notarise.

"We do not condone the actions of Stinson Hunter: the tactic of putting video footage of those he accuses of being paedophiles online goes completely against the vital principle of people being innocent until proven guilty in the UK. It also puts those individuals and their families, including their children, at serious risk of vigilante attacks.

His actions have many other serious risks: those he targets could destroy evidence before police had a chance to take action and he could very easily jeopardise ongoing police investigations into individual offenders or paedophile [sic] networks he is unaware of.

He could put children at risk of harm, for example by an abuser who feels targeted or threatened, or the police or other agencies not being able to put measures in place to protect abused children as they would do in their own investigations.

"We believe Stinson Hunter's behaviour is irresponsible. We have met with him on many occasions to discuss his 'stings' and where possible have tried to persuade him to stop, but with no success, so in January we served him with a 'cease and desist' letter. Despite a second letter in April, he has ignored us and continues his activity."

Further details on the risks posed by Stinson Hunter:

He could actually cause harm to vulnerable young people by not allowing the opportunity for police and other agencies such as Children's Services to properly assess the risk posed to any children associated with the abuser and put in place safeguarding measures. The protection of children from harm is our priority.

He could be unknowingly compromising police investigations. The individuals he is targeting may already be under investigation, and his activities could damage those ongoing inquiries. He could further compromise investigations into paedophile [sic] networks where law enforcement agencies are operating online. Stinson's activities in this way would actually damage criminal investigations rather than assist them.

He risks the destruction of vital evidence. His actions in trapping individuals, filming them and posting those films online could result in them destroying any evidence before police have an opportunity to seize it and pursue a successful prosecution.

He could cause harm to vulnerable young people by sparking an abuser to harm a child if they feel they are being targeted or threatened.

He is posing a serious risk to the families, including partners and children, of those he is 'stinging' and exposing on the internet. When the police investigate and arrest individuals, they do so as part of a wider operation within which careful consideration is given to any welfare needs of others who could be affected. His activities provide no opportunity for the police to put in place any measures to protect others who may be adversely affected.

For example, Stinson's method of filming individuals and posting them online exposes them to a risk of serious physical assault. We have already seen evidence to support this assertion, through comments posted online from people who have viewed the 'stings'.

Also, if the individual has children, they could be bullied or attacked, or the family home could be subject to attack, placing the individual's family and children at risk of serious physical harm."

'Doing this has made me feel worthwhile' - Stinson Hunter exclusive

"I'VE never had a purpose, I've never felt like I belong or that anything mattered to me.

I was always strolling through life thinking I'll upset as many people as I like, robbing, stealing, taking drugs, beating people up and not giving a s***," said pervert catcher Stinson Hunter.

"Now I have found something that I genuinely care about.

This has changed me as a person for the better." This is how former Tamworth schoolboy-turned online vigilante.

Stinson Hunter described the immeasurable impact that exposing paedophiles [sic] has had on his life."


Expose of Stinson Hunter



The Paedophile Hunter; saving or ruining lives?

"Peter has claimed that this has caused him anguish and to his family. It caused his wife’s attempted suicide, his children not communicating with him, the loss of his job and ultimately the loss of his life. Some men who are what you could call ‘victims’ themselves have claimed their own lives due to the torment and desperate lives they lead after the footage surfaced on the internet.

Peter claimed to believe the girl was of age, but what of the other men who know the age of the minors? Should it be a private matter where only police and official investigators have access to the information? Are these men victims to online slander/defamation? Do they deserve the public humiliation and abuse?"

Stinson Hunter makes vow to supporters after Kickstarter appeal raises £32k

"Stinson Hunter has vowed to deliver on his promises after raising a staggering £32,000 to fund his next project.

Ex-convict Hunter has also been asked to go into two schools to talk about internet safety.

As part of the fundraising on the website Kickstarter donors receive different rewards depending on how much they pledge.

“The main thing I’m dealing with primarily is making sure everyone gets what they are owed,” he said.

“Then come the new year we will start looking at doing the other things we have been talking about.

“I have to honour the Kickstarter - that’s hugely important.

“Two schools have approached me too so I’m looking forward to that. Others, like nightclubs, have got in touch, but I’m not interested in anything like that.”"
