Letzgo Hunting – Undercover parents filmed seven child sex suspects

In their latest sting the parents arranged to meet a 45 year-old man, from Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, in a car park in Burbage, Leicester, on Saturday afternoon on April 13, after chatting to him on the internet for several weeks.

Seven suspected paedophiles have been arrested by Midland forces after a group of parents sent officers video footage of their investigations.

The concerned mums and dads, who call themselves Letzgo Hunting, have been posing as underage children online to snare paedophiles since January.

The six parents film their confrontations with the suspects and post their footage on the internet.

The group said they are currently talking to as many as 35 more suspects online.

In their latest sting the parents arranged to meet a 45 year-old man, from Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham, in a car park in Burbage, Leicester, on Saturday afternoon on April 13, after chatting to him on the internet for several weeks.

One Letzgo Hunting member posed as a 15 year-old girl, wearing teenage clothes and make up, and sent photographs of the disguise to the suspect before their meeting.

In the car park the parents ferociously questioned the suspect about disgusting messages they claim he sent to their team member.

A video of the confrontation was posted on the group’s Facebook page, but has since been removed at the request of police.

Officers from West Midlands Police arrested the suspect on suspicion of online grooming on behalf of Leicestershire Police, who are leading the investigation.

The Letzgo Hunting leader, who identifies himself only as Scumm Buster, said: “It’s amazing to watch their faces drop as they realise they are not meeting who they thought they were. This guy from Birmingham was the biggest scumbag ever.

“The stuff he was saying was just vile; adults wouldn’t say it to each other. I can’t repeat most of what he said. He actually hit me with the side of his car as he tried to get away.


“He took a lot of steps to make sure we were real. He said he’d been duped before.

“He asked us for pictures, phone calls. He asked us for sexual photographs as well, but anything explicit we declined.

“He reiterated quite a lot of times that he couldn’t believe a girl that age was interested in him.”

Police have arrested another six paedophile suspects after being contacted by the group.

Leicestershire Police arrested a 54-year-old man in Warwickshire on March 19; a 24-year-old man in Loughborough on March 20; and a 33-year-old man in Hinckley on March 30.

Warwickshire Police have also arrested three men on suspicion of sexual grooming in three separate incidents in Warwickshire as part of an ongoing investigation with Leicestershire Police – these are a 26-year-old man in Nuneaton on March 17; a 54-year-old man in Leamington on March 19; and a 51-year-old man in the north Warwickshire area on April 16.

All are currently on police bail pending further enquiries.

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “A man was arrested on suspicion of online grooming after trying to arrange a meeting with a girl in a park. It follows a regional investigation after a video was posted online showing a man being confronted over the allegations by members of the public.

“A warrant was executed at an address in Sutton Coldfield where a 45-year-old man was arrested on child sexual exploitation matters.

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police said: “The men were brought to our attention by a person or persons who use the internet to pose as young girls offering to meet with men for sex.

“The meeting is filmed and posted on the internet and, in some cases, police informed.”

Cops: This risks proper justice

Plolice warned people not to take the law into their own hands last night following the revelations by Letzgo Hunting.

A Leicestershire Police spokesman said: “Unfortunately, these kinds of public ‘naming and shaming’ activities can actually have a negative affect on victims of child abuse.

“While we understand the strong feelings that motivate this kind of activity, it can seriously affect the chances of success in court, preventing victims from getting justice and increasing the chances of offenders walking free.

“It also fails to take into account that many victims of child abuse are the children or family of the offenders, thus bringing extra distress to innocent people and affecting our ability to safeguard victims.

“This is one of the reasons why you would never see any of the legitimate crime agencies doing it this way. The best thing people can do, if they have evidence of child abuse or paedophile activity, is report it to the police, Crimestoppers or CEOP.”

A spokesman for Warwickshire Police added: “It can compromise ongoing investigations and could spark an abuser to further harm a child or themselves. Those who take this approach to exposing suspected paedophiles could be breaking the law.”

Scumm Buster said: “Ninety per cent of people think what we are doing is great and are really supportive. The others just don’t seem to understand what we are doing; they probably don’t have kids.”

THE number of members of a Facebook group set up to name and shame sex offenders has nearly doubled in a fortnight.

Communities Against Paedophiles Southlakes has also set up its first public meeting to take place on April 18.

Group spokeswoman Debbie Armstrong, 44, said the local community was throwing its support behind the group.

She added that she hoped that everyone would turn up for the 6pm meeting at V40, the old Conservative Club in Abbey Road, Barrow. Ms Armstrong said: “We have a lot of support from the community with this cause, which explains the growth in members to over 3,000 in such a short space of time.

“The meeting is a chance to ask questions to the various authorities about child abusers so that us as parents can make informed choices regarding the safety of our children.”

Police say the controversial group could force convicted paedophiles underground, making it harder for officers to monitor them. They have demanded it be shut down.

But those involved in the group, which was set up around four weeks ago, say they have a right to protect children by informing their Facebook followers where child sex offenders live and what they have been convicted of.

Group organisers have vowed to continue their fight to protect children by informing followers where child sex offenders live and what they have been convicted of.

Paedophiles and rapists will dodge bedroom tax while hard-hit families face homelessness

Published April 2, 2013 by misty534

SEX offenders who live in large houses will not have their housing benefit cut because they can’t let a room out to a lodger and are almost impossible to rehouse.




PAEDOPHILES and rapists will dodge the bedroom tax while poverty-hit families face homelessness.

A shocking loophole in the Con-Dem welfare cuts, which come into force today, could mean thousands of sex offenders being exempt.

A Department for Work and Pensions whistleblower tipped off Scotland’s Health Secretary Alex Neil about the scandal.

Last night, the Airdrie and Shotts MSP said: “When hard-working people who are being forced to pay the bedroom tax realise that convicted sex offenders are often exempt they will be very angry indeed.

“This just shows how daft and unfair this tax is in the first place and it should be scrapped immediately. This tax is riddled with loopholes and contradictions – it doesn’t make any sense to penalise hard-working people in this way.

“It will also force many families out on to the street with nowhere to go.”

Neil and Airdrie councillor Michael Coyle were horrified when they were told of the loophole.

The DWP man told them sex offenders with large houses would not have their housing benefit cut because they couldn’t let a room out to a lodger and are almost impossible to rehouse.

Child abusers and rapists freed from prison would still be housed in larger homes and not penalised as it is hard to find them suitable accommodation.

Neil added: “We shouldn’t be forced to look for these loopholes. The tax should be scrapped and if the Scottish Parliament get powers over welfare through independence, the SNP will scrap this shocking policy.”

The rules will affect housing benefit, which is paid to less well-off tenants to help with rent.

Families deemed to have too much living space by their council will get a reduced payment. It has been claimed as many as 105,000 households in Scotland may lose £14 a week of housing benefit on average.

Foster carers and families of forces personnel will be exempt. But Coyle said the DWP are leaving local authorities to deal with each sex offender’s case on merit.

The DWP have given councils an extra £10million in discretionary funds this year to help vulnerable and poverty-stricken tenants. Coyle said: “I am really worried this money, which isn’t much when it’s split between all Scotland’s councils, will be used for sex offenders.

“A system that gives preferential treatment to sex offenders is sickening.”

The DWP refused to discuss how the bedroom tax would affect sex offenders. But a spokesman said: “With many thousands of people on housing waiting lists, we need to end the spare room subsidy and ensure a better use of social housing.

“Councils in Scotland have been given an extra £10million this year for discretionary housing payments to help people in difficult situations.”

The Government argue the changes will help cut the £23billion annual bill for housing benefit, free up more living space for overcrowded families and encourage people to get jobs.

The Church of Scotland, the Baptist Union of Great Britain, the Methodist Church and the United Reformed Church accused ministers of manipulating figures to vilify the poor.

A Methodist spokesman said: “Whatever problems the country faced, it wasn’t the poor that caused it and shouldn’t be them that pay for it.”

And homelessness charity Crisis said: “The result will be misery – cold rooms, longer queues at food banks, broken families, missed rent payments and more people homeless. Devastating for those directly affected but bad for us all.”

uPSD were responsible for unmasking West Yorkshire Police paedophile, DC Michael Vause. Working with the Yorkshire Post‘s Rob Waugh we were able to propagate this news story:   Without that publicity, Vause would have disappeared into retirement with his vile tendencies unknown to the wider public.

A CID detective for most of his career, Vause ended up in Professional Standards investigating other suspected paedophiles, would you believe? One of those West Yorkshire Police officers he investigated, a Police Band member, was alleged to have abused his own child, by his own wife, but was cleared by Vause. The same Band playing officer also perjured himself at Crown Court in Bradford but faced no action from his own Force.

A third West Yorkshire Police paedophile was arrested after child images were found on his computer.  A criminal file was prepared for the CPS but no charges were preferred and the inspector (a former custody sergeant in Wakefield) was allowed to retire on full pension. uPSD are aware of the identity of this individual and our enquiries continue.

Throughout this process we have been obstructed at every turn by West Yorkshire Police and their co-conspirators at the Police Authority but this is an issue of massive public interest and  importance, particularly in the light of Jimmy Savile operating unfettered in Leeds for over 40 years by his local police force. Apart from Inspector Mick Starkey, we are keen to learn of the identities of the other eight serving/retired police officers who met at Savile’s home in Leeds for his self-styled ‘Friday Morning Club’ for over 20 years.
