Sextortion?

I was leafing through BBC site and came across a term that I am unaware of…..SEXTORTION!  My first reaction was….”what the “f”?

Of course having a curious mind I just had to follow up on my curiosity.

This is what I read at first…….

Hundreds of thousands of men around the world are falling victim every year to a pernicious form of online crime.

It has been nicknamed “sextortion” and is a form of blackmail.

Victims are normally lured in through social media sites; the blackmailers are criminal gangs operating in countries like the Philippines.

Okay I have an idea of what it is but further investigation is needed…….

Sextortion - Last year, Miss Teen USA Cassidy Wolf became one of the nation’s most high-profile cases of “sextortion,” an increasingly common crime in which a hacker steals a person’s photos or videos (usually by hacking a computer, phone or webcam) and then demands some form of payment not to distribute them online. There are several different ways individuals can lose their private images to a hacker: an ex-partner can send shared images to a third party; the victim can be enticed or threatened into sharing them; the hacker can hijack an online account that stores these sensitive images; or the victim’s computer or mobile device can be infected by a Remote Access Trojan (RAT) that allows the attacker inside access. RATs allow the hacker to remotely enable the victim’s webcam to clandestinely capture images of them.

Let see….some hot little thing cons me into having some racy chat….then she records it and threatens to expose my dalliance unless I compensate her monetarily……that about it?

What to do…what to do?

Personally, I would get a good chuckle and tell her to knock herself out….even if I was married……why would I do that?

Simple….Kim Kardashian.  She is famous for nothing more than making a sex tape….it is worth a try.  I could use a few bucks more and I would call the National Enquirer myself….save her the charge.

You want to stop this sort of thing….then my answer….do not do it….you moron!

Today will be a very lean day…I have a family member going under the knife and I will be at the hospital most of the day……sorry to cut it short today….I will be back tomorrow if all goes well….

With the decisions in Ferguson and NYC and the death of a 12 year old in Cleveland…..people are taking to the street…..they are protesting the deaths but few have offered up any solution.

This is another piece I wrote for Ace News Room 2014…..I appreciate my friend for using some of my op-eds for his service….stop by and visit the site…..become better informed….

Are Cameras Really The Answer?

There have been numerous incidents where the police have shot and killed unarmed suspects…..many in this country are looking for an answer to this problem….

As usual the country is looking for a quick fix….instead of facing reality….sad to say that a simplistic approach may not be the best approach……..and there you have the “simple” answer…..make the cops wear body cameras…..this will force the cops to re-think their approach to a dangerous situation…….

Personally, I do not think that this is the sole answer….just the simplest one to implement…..and it seems that others feel the way I do….

Can body cameras really curb police abuse? Experts aren’t so sure.

Body cameras on police officers? Not so fast, say some researchers

Read the articles and please let me know what you think….is it or is it not…..the ANSWER?

To Be Young (Again)

Remember what you were doing when you were 17?  I was thinking about asking that special gal out for the first time….and that was making me extremely nervous…..I was working making about 75 cents an hour and trying to get through school…….but there was something about her that made me think of her all the time…..

How about you?

It is scary these days especially when I read this piece…..

A 17-year-old girl was charged with organizing a prostitution ring at two Florida high schools. Police say she pimped out a 15-year-old girl to a client for $40 and a bottle of liquor so a 21-year-old could have sex with the underage student.

Sarasota High School student Alexa Nicole De Armas was arrested Friday and charged with human trafficking of a person younger than 18, a felony. John Michael Mosher, 21, was also arrested, and charged with sexual battery on a minor, WWSB reported. Police told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune that one more person would be arrested Tuesday.
