Male Sexual Predator Photographer Now Stalking Midwest Pools

Postby Moderator » Sat Nov 03, 2007 8:32 pm

Sexual predators of young boys at pools in MIDWEST

A midwest photographer named "Freddie", a photographer from Midwest Sports Photography has been taking and posting (on the internet) HIGHLY inappropriate photographs of male swimmers and water polo players from high schools in Ohio, Michigan, Illinois and Indiana. These are HIGHLY questionable photographs that do not include water or action shots. All are out of the pool during stretching etc. All centered on body parts that are posted on gay message boards and commented on by pedophiles all over the world.

The photographs of the young boys are sold by the DVD on gay and pedophilia websites all over the world and some are put into pornographic calendars that are sold through the internet. The kids pictures are being posted on sites around the world with key words "speedo, lycra, bondage, sexy lads, hot young boys etc" and worse. These are not even thinly disguised as kiddie porn sites, all using our own normal kids as the bait.

These photographs feature kids in team caps with photographs of the venue so it is clear where the kids are to be found.

This is not funny. This is NOT to be taken lightly. There needs to be a concentrated effort to get these people off our pool decks. Notify your kids coach, notify your AD, and question EVERY photographer who is taking pictures at boys high school or college events. If someone is taking photographs and you do not know them, chase them out or call the police.

The company is Midwest Sports Photography http://www.midwestsports.bravehost.com/. The owner is a man by the name of Freddie who publishes a regular photography column displaying the kids pictures on gay pedophile websites called "Freddies Faves"

This guy is in cahoots with the two prowling Southern California. Several parents are working on tracking them down. We have photographs of the two in California and will post the ones of Freddie as soon as we obtain them.

Mod:

Could you re-post this under the "Serious Warning" thread in the News section? I think this is important enough to include under the original thread. I tried to copy and paste it, but it wouldn't work.

Thanks.

Will do, Pete. Keep yours eyes open for anyone with a camera who is on the pool deck. We DO know that this guy uses NIKON equipment.

It looks like this guy has done a lot of work in Ohio and while we have not tracked his full name down yet, our suspicion is that he is based in Ohio. The midwest guys in USAWP have been notified but there are a lot of people out there below the radarscope of USA Water Polo and we are trying to get the word out as soon as possible.

The California people who are tracking these guys are continuing to work on identifying him and will post all updates as they receive it.

I wonder how that NIKON would work under water? :mad:

I would recommend doing the experiment in this order:

(1) throw it in the bottom of the pool, see if it works;
(2) then put it in a water-proof housing and see if it works better then.

As one scientist to another, shouldn't we state a hypothesis before conducting our experiments? :D
