Action Alert: Email Websites That Offer “Kill a Pedophile” Merchandise

There are at least four websites currently offering for sale merchandise with the message “Kill a Pedophile.”  The websites are Amazon, Etsy, Killer Culture Shop and Scratshirt.  Merchandise being sold on these websites includes clothing and/or stickers.

“The logos on some of the merchandise being sold include graphics of a person aiming a gun at the head of a bound man on his knees as well as the message ‘Kill a Pedophile,'” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci.  “We must stop the sale and advertisement of this merchandise.

Registrants, family members and supporters are urged to contact each of the websites online and demand that merchandise promoting violence against any person or group of people be immediately removed from the website.

“There is no need to identify yourself as a registrant or a family member when you communicate this demand,” stated Bellucci.  “The primary reason for removal is that the message incites violence.”

Here are the websites, how to file complaints for each website, and an example of what you can say. You can follow the instructions yourself to see the images of the terrible merchandise.

Anything for a buck? How American.

Imagine the outrage, backlash, and boycotting if they sold “Kill a *igger” merch. Or the “silly faggot, dicks are for chicks” shirts that are now frowned upon. But somehow society high-fives itself, condones, and advocates the killing of anyone even suspected of being a pedo. The most disturbing part is, society doesn’t make a distinction between SO and pedo. Thank you media!! /s They’ve been brainwashed into believing they’re one and the same.

Reminds me of a bumper sticker, “ keep kids safe, kill a sex offender.” Nothing says street justice than an idiot with a gun on a power binge.

I contacted Amazon and they are working to remove the site. I would not be surprised to see it pop up again under a different name.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I sent messages to the companies and received this gem from Killer Culture:

“Go F*&% Yourself”

Note: F*&% was spelled out in the email.

Thanks for sending this email Janice. I have sent emails to each of those sites as well. Hopefully we can change this too.

Since the Killer Culture shop owner is inciting violence, which is against the Shopify terms of use, please make sure you report him using their handy form:

https://www.shopify.com/legal/report-aup-violation

The material on Amazon is a book. It is called “How to kill a pedophine: my beautiful suscide book three by Atty Eve. While we HATE the word, which really does not exist in the enlish language, it is part of a series of book and it looks like she is just a creepy author.

Pushing the envelope. A nudge here and there, another life taken. They don’t really care, so watch yourself. It’s just beginning. Stand up and defend yourself.

I found on Amazon that going to the product’s page there is a “Report incorrect product information” link next to the product image that you could report to.

Once you click on that a small box appears that says ,”Report an issue.” Then click on “Which part of the page?” Then select “Image” for the specification of the complaint.

Underneath it asks “What’s the issue?” Click that and select “Offensive or adult content.”

In the comments section state your complaint. For me I wrote, “Image incites and promotes violence.”

There are alot of these shirts being sold by different venders. I wrote to every one of pages. I found it disturbing that they sell those shirts in kid sizes with a boy and girl modeling it on Amazon.

It seems the link for Amazon is for sellers. Is there a link for the public to file a complaint?

How do you report stuff on Instagram?

DAMN POOR LEADERSHIP!

So you think it’s good public policy to utilize a database to attack and enslave humans?

https://www.breitbart.com/law-and-order/2020/09/11/minnesota-police-group-withdraws-democrat-endorsements-after-video-of-union-chief-beaten-in-effigy/

https://www.politico.com/news/2020/09/11/johnson-ig-wiped-mueller-team-phones-412757

And all they do is protect their political security and unfettered uses of the infrastructure. That is the collateralized implications of granting state’s authority to indenture. To assist law enforcement, the federal deepstate, and ubiquitous surveillance saints & contractors.

No doubt we should firmly demand that those shirts be taken down or threaten lawsuit on them. The real question at hand, however, is: why did Amazon allow them to be on the website in the first place? (While I haven’t sold on Amazon before, I would think that a reputable e-distributor as Amazon would screen their items and approve/reject items that BLATANTLY violate their own policy of conduct; and BLATANTLY break the law!)

Not only is this horrible to begin with that this type of message is printed on a T-shirt but they have sizes with models wearing this t-shirt that are CHILDREN. They are telling children that violence is ok and they are promoting it!! What the “F”!! is wrong with you Amazon?

I selected one of the listings with a child being used as a model wearing this t-shirt and gave Amazon a piece of my mind!

https://www.amazon.com/Colorful-Comfortable-Creative-Pedophile-T-Shirt/dp/B08HMZXZKR/ref=sr_1_38?dchild=1&keywords=kill local pedophile shirt&qid=1599905376&sr=8-38

I told Amazon this message is unacceptable no matter the age!

Everybody’s just cashing in on the sexofender logo the media dosen’t all the time so dose LAW Enforcement and bloggers and journalist and any lame out there trying make a name for them self’s.
Kill a pedophile Tshirts WTF that shiit is funny as hell people will say and do anything for attention
People forced to register need take the power back and start making their own Tshirts start wrighting their own books make their own blogs start their own pod cast why not everybody else is cashing in off the sexofender logo

Good luck

Since this is is a crime being committed in interstate commerce I think federal code 18 U.S. Code § 373 should come into play here… but it probably won’t – And I think forfeiture of their assets should be in order for profiting off of the commission of crime.

Amazon and the Washington Post are owned by the same individual. Soooo, maybe WaPo should do an investigative story on it’s owner who has a business which looks to incite hate speech and possible violence against people through the selling of merchandise which Amazon gets a percentage of and thus raises the stock price and overall value of the owner’s stock portfolio? You could also ask that of the other media outlets so they can do a story on this huge internet success story. Nothing like other media outlets sniping at each other. The only problem is the possibility of more success for these businesses given the free publicity.

BTW, Etsy was just listed on a stock exchange, so lower their price through bad publicity too.

At the same time, Amazon has a large US Gov’t business line for their web services, e.g. DoD, etc. Maybe elected officials as well as US Gov’t officials should be queried about Amazon profiting from inciting hate speech and possible violence against people as noted above? Embarrassment is ugly, especially at budget request time every fiscal year.

There is more than one way, other than directly, to get change done without causing problems for those who are the target of such speech.

Well, beyond the merchandise, he is also advocating using the registry to hunt RSOs. Here is a Facebook post where he tells people to murder people on the registry. I understand a slogan on a shirt may be protected free speech, but how is posting a picture of the SO registry and telling people to “hunt pedophiles” not actionable? When I use the Megan’s Law website, there is a disclaimer you have to accept which says it is a felony to use the registry for any criminal purpose, including harassment, which is exactly what he’s doing.

While the website for killercultureshop (dot) com is Shopify, the Email provider is a reseller account with infrastructure operated by OpenSRS.

Perhaps we ought to file legal or criminal complaints against the website and work to identify the people behind the websites. I have a pretty good idea who’s behind the site and just hope the FBI in Phoenix Arizona is aware of their current operations. I’ve been tracking their activities the best I can.

I’m in a tough spot on this one. I know not everyone on this site will agree with me but here I go. I’m not mad. I believe it’s freedom of speech. I was a US Marine and that’s why I was in. I also don’t agree with the BLM movement, I’m pro police, pro Republican, and pro Trump. I believe everyone gets what they work for in life. I believe people make mistakes. I’m also a 290. I think it’s a t-shirt. I’ve tried to start a dialogue with Donnie Wymer and haven’t got anywhere. I’ve seen some of his posts on Facebook and they are ridiculous. I know this, my charge has to do with my ex wife, nothing to do with pedophilia, but when looked up, unless you’re us, there is no differentiation. I’m not looking to stand out anyways, my charge is no worse, no better than any other registrants regardless of the alleged charges, pleas, guilty verdicts. So Donnie Wymer, I’m also a fighter. I take no offense when you say what you say but stand in front of me and call me a rapist or pedophille, etc… I’m making no threats, I’m not that stupid but stand I’m front of me and say those things instead of being a keyboard warrior/lee press in logo maker. I’ve fought so far in two Battle of the Badges and have been boxing since childhood. I am a huge fan of mma and have extensive training in that arena too. So please Donny, wear your shirt, doesn’t bother me. Sell your shirts, doesn’t bother me. Mess with me, my family, that’s another issue. One more thing Donny. Tell your wife to stop changing her lipstick because I’m starting to get rainbows around my d___!

This is frustrating. I reported several posts on FB for that T Shirt page that very clearly had the Shoot Your Local RC and the “Pokemon Go” posts. Apparently none of that is against the community standards. But when I generally said Americans are morons for think Covid was a hoax, that was super bad and warranted my account being blocked for several days. WTF??

FB needs live customers support to deal with this bullshit. I guarantee whomever reviewed my report against him, had a laugh and dismissed it outside the actual guidelines. I cant otherwise belive those posts don’t violate things.

Sent complaints to all but killerculture. Traced them to Shopify and filed a complaint with Shopify instead. May be able to also report them to a US government agency for internet abuse and the EU for violations.

Used image of child in one of those shirts for Amazon. As someone who sells shirts on Amazon, I know that is a HUGE NO-NO and they don’t allow any shirt for any size with that sort of content.

STOP!!!!! STOP!!!!!!
Do not give in to this Bullshit.

We have to find a stronger thing. We have to be so much better.

In my darkest times I found that one must find a small missive, a bit of a life to hold onto. People were h0rrible towards me. I lost all my family ,and its been two decades now. My only child screams at me through calls me “Pedophile” while he shits all over himself and commits crimes to support his opiate and benzo addition with a devil face and no one speaks to me from what was before.

Now, what do I do with this? I can and could have laid in the misery of what others though, or I could be courageous and FIGHT.

No one can take me to Task. NOT the *uking Federal POs or their minions. I stand TALL before them. I stand tall now after 15 years under fedral SR, and now 3 years coming up off the reg here in CT.

I say this to anyone whom wants to listen.

There comes a Time when a time has come. To stand up and to defend oneself. To get Really *ucking angry in a way that sets fires to small towns and villages.

To be absolutely and firmly bad ass and look these rotten folks in the eyes and call them out. They don’t know what do do in the face of strength.

To us here, for GDFM stop mee-mooing!!!!! Get smart about your particular situation. Fight it. Yours is not mine and mine is not yours. But dont bitch about stuff. Be smart about it, educate yourself on the LAW. Case law the LAW, any damn law. But above all fight and pushback. Okay?

Be legally smart. Look your Fed Or State PO in the Face and say “well thats Not what the law says”. And watch the giant shit in the pants. Am not talking a normal shit. But when LEA shits in their pants.

Cow Shit: Methane. Law Excrement: Oh well we didn’t have an authorized shit, but someone shit therefore its a valid arrest. “Judge” : But who shit? Answer: well that person Could have Shit, but we cant ever know if they would have. therefore the are a danger to the community. If one does so regarding a Minor, well HOLY SHIT!!! And therefore one must be of such low consequence that one is deserving of nothing more than shit.

This is what my life has been. My entire family whom I loved so much walked a way 17 years ago from me. I know nothing of them now. They know nothing of my courage and fight back to regain whom I am….not WAS but who I am NOW.

I have been in the belly of the beast. Terrified and closed curtains and when halloween came around, hiding from fear. Years spent being subjected to the SO “Treatment” paradigm. The coming into the probation office because New Britain CT had the “contact” and sitting there. I fucken took every leader of that group to task. Okay “dickshine” here is what is the facts. s

Oh my, i get heated.

Be well all.

Federal Judge: its clear to me!!!!

Sigh.

Actually we all can steal put this type of blame on America today or the logical thinkers of this generation or is this marketing merchandise no different than goverment selling out or selling a nation or people out. Now all these comments on here are one’s view’s about another person. Sure its shocking but what isn’t today in so many ways. Look was playboy a good idea way back when to make someone rich.

Brandon with his bumper sticker view. Facts with his anything for a buck. Even Tim with his grand illusion of see what the database has caused or what the database has spread. Talk about women gossiping. One wonders who know’s what abuse is today, who knows what is rape today or is it all sexual.

This guy with the screen name of finally off the register talks about political things. Is it all about being to proud of oneself, the I don’t care attitude or go fly a kite mentality of none of your business, or who is wearing the mask today when they go out to shop? Would the president today lower himself to wearing a mask like some governors do or is is golf the four letter word used in some homes today for those wall street people.

Do men actually know who’s been raping who today. Believe it or not babies have been raped, men, women and children have been killled. Should we all talk about indian wars back in the early American colonies, the abuse of the BLM movement., the 70″ sex revolution, or the 30 seconds of fame for say the John Lennon murder.

Should we all talk about this oredeal we all are going thru, if its blantent punishment or government doing bad to enslave as they did to the black person or are we all some property of the state. So were does that leave christian morals or ethics if a person has them.

Has man actually heard women talk about rape crisises on campus or this teen sex issue or how it effects each one as a violation woman’s rights. Sure a geek scientist can come up with the fix as its all due to the database and thats the great cure all of a one button click. They didn’t have any database in the civil war era but they did have men of honor. Are police forces a men or women doing honor in many cases today.

Hey if a women is in the service of the police force, government, or any course of that nature they are going to say anything to save their job. Here they entrap others, sort of fish with their nets of deceit in this game of who wants to hook up with a teen and than labeling starts. Is that christian principal? Is the nation divided or is government wearing a mask when the President would not as that would cheapen i’m sure his or her standards.

Ruses and abuses come in many different forms or are we all what we eat or should we or this nation humble ourselves sort of put a little love in your heart. Being judgemental isn’t good on any bases or should solving issues be a big factor if done in the right way.

Your group lives in California. You live right where places like Facebook, eBay, and Google have their main corporate offices, so how about you have a public demonstration right at the corporate offices? Sending emails isn’t always enough.

Donnie @ Killer Culture is quite a pip

“Please drink bleach and give some to Derek for me”

How mature 😒

Senator Cruz is launching an investigation on the French movie Cuties saying it promotes CP. where were people complaining of Toddlers n Tiaras and beauty pageants for minors a few decades ago.

To me, this is nothing important. We all have much larger issues and that is just in day to day life even without the registry. This is not something new – the T-shirts. When i was a kid we had shirts like, “Kill a Commie for mommy” and kids wore them. It was not that big a deal. I know some will say it is promoting violence but i would submit that anyone who sees a T-shirt and kills for it, was going to do it anyway. A T-shirt is just not that big of an influence.

@Wow Patriot. Haven’t hear you voice on here for a long time. I’m sure your just as upset as the rest. Talk about Culture killer or if one wants to use the words Culture Club. Course I liked the pharse quite a pip.

I’m sure everyone has their views on this Culture killer ordeal. Even some of the things about Derek or all should really have something against Derek. and remember who can tame the tongue, or as one President said.. It takes to to tango. well who is doing the “Hustle” in a lot of this or were many hustled in much of this sex registry riff ordeal by this pimp up or pippish way?

Should we all go back to Jack Daniels or Charlie Daniels . One should understand a lot today just isn’t right or who is stepping on others in these tactics. Even this guy with this merchandise ordeal plus much of thsi government ordeal can be taken to far. Its time for a change in American Law and government. Some of you all might of been fans of Charlie Daniels enjoy.

Watching Killer Culture on Instagram has made me realize that our emailing towards Donnie Wymer’s shop has garnered more attention and support for his business by haters than if we left alone this otherwise obscure subculture of serial killer lovers. How ironic…A business that embraces the worst of human impulses – torture, murder, cannibalism, and necrophilia – be looking down on sex offenders….I mean REALLY?

Killer Culture even celebrates fictional serial killers like Jason and Micheal Myers that MURDER UNDERAGE KIDS…and yet be upset over people’s past sex charges. According to their logic it is better to murder children than the other thing…

I called Amazon customer service. Was transferred a couple of times. When I got to what was considered a “responsible party”, I explained my concern with the product and message they were sending out. She explained that her dept only took customer concerns in and routed them to appropriate parties.
I asked her if it was alright if I held up a sign saying “Kill Amazon employees” outside the gates of the local Distribution facility. She said she didn’t find that amusing and that communicating a threat is against the law. I then asked her what the difference was. She had no answer, but I knew by her tone she wanted to say, “ But they are pedos”.
I doubt if my call will be addressed, but I did it anyway.

I hung up. Then I was called back a few minutes later by another Amazon rep. He said he reviewed my conversation ( they are recorded) and then proceeded to take information down About product. He said since it was 3rd party data, they would search out all vendors caring this item. If it was deemed offensive (really?) they would remove the product.
I recommend everyone call them and complain. Many voices carry more weight.

Tenacity? Haven’t heard that word since schooldays. Janice you just may be my english teacher. Her and her husband owned a suziki shop in the 60’s and 70’s. While this whole issue of the sex offender is type of Controversial topics with this introduction of this internet What would be more controversial than the sex registry.

So were do morals and understanding come into play. A.D.A.T. you did good and persistance at times pays off. Its like falling off a horse you get back on. This sex offender issue is an issue and I’m sure we all see many things wrong with it. Its just like drugs or alcohol or who is deceiving and altering the mind. Even James Brown, the god father of soul had his moments. Sure I watched the movie uneasy rider back in the 60’s. We all went thru this women’s rights movement and yes women do have rights as we all should have or should we all talk about equality in certain issues.

This sex offender issue is way out of balance and is more Marxist in many ways . If you want to look at a mark of Cain it seems seems gloomy or doom to some so where is the constitution come in on all of this. Holding a man with a mark on them for the rest of their life and after they have served their prison sentence. Now this guy has a pedofile type of head shop selling T-shirts via computer to Kill all pedofiles. Maybe we all should bring back the issue about why taking prayer out of school was so important. Guess thats were your data base comes in.

Their was nothing wrong with Ronnie Regan as my grandmother called him. Course he did change parties. Thss sex registry in many facsets is a game and yes my hats off to A.D.A.T for being presistant to trying to understand this illogicaial facebook of amazon or whatever in this issue as well as some should. Does much of this come down to greed or a kill the beast or do some actually understand that life is precious.

I wish to apologize to folks on here.

I had a “stream of consciousness” and was upset and needed to vent.

Be well

Today, I had talked with an eBay rep from the Phillipines.

I had a copy of a book writen by a certain infamous madman from the 20th Century who wrote a very famous book. No doubt you can guess who, and I wrote a very scathing comparison years ago comparing American registry laws to the philosophy of said madman using direct quotes from said book. Having taken what I need from the book, I sold it on eBay, and there were at least a half dozen copies for sale, I decided to rid myself of the book, and it went for $20, which is more useful to me. It sold over the weekend and went out yesterday.

Today, eBay told me the listing was removed because the material was “Offensive material.” After a runaround I finally got a rep on the phone. He says eBay won’t allow this book to be sold because it is “offensive to Jews.” (It is odd given you can sell lots of other items bearing symbols from said madman’s regime, like currency bearing certain logos.)

I asked him why, then, if this book cannot be sold because it “promotes or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination,” why is eBay allowing merchandise with the slogan “Shoot Your Local Pedophile/ Sex Offender” being sold? He said it was different but cannot explain to me how it is different. He gave me some convoluted response, something about this was one man’s opinion. But wasn’t this book I was selling also about one man’s opinion?

Long story short, eBay decided only certain people are worthy of consideration but we are not. Perhaps we need to slam them with a lot of “one man’s opinions.”

That killer culture website is such a joke. They offer kill your local pedophile shirt yet they also offer Pogo is a friend of mine shirts, referencing John Wayne Gacy who himself was a sex offender. Oh and let’s sell shirts that say we like serial killers yet we also sell masks so you can protect yourself from a virus. What a bunch of losers trying to act tough.

pure hate.. These companies need to be held liable for these merchants selling this kind of stuff. We need to sue companies 5allowing this kind of stuff and see what happens. This needs to be a civil suit for all registrants.

One look at his personal and professional page is all you need to see to realize he’s a lowlife.

It seems to me that lawsuits work where enforcement of the law doesn’t. Class action of some sort? Sue ’em out of existence seems to get results where other tactics fail.
As to whether or not these “slogans” are illegal or not, it sure seems like it to me:
18 U.S. Code § 373 – Solicitation to commit a crime of violence

U.S. Code
Notes

prev next
(a) Whoever, with intent that another person engage in conduct constituting a felony that has as an element the use, attempted use, or threatened use of physical force against property or against the person of another in violation of the laws of the United States, and under circumstances strongly corroborative of that intent, solicits, commands, induces, or otherwise endeavors to persuade such other person to engage in such conduct, shall be imprisoned not more than one-half the maximum term of imprisonment or (notwithstanding section 3571) fined not more than one-half of the maximum fine prescribed for the punishment of the crime solicited, or both; or if the crime solicited is punishable by life imprisonment or death, shall be imprisoned for not more than twenty years.
(b) It is an affirmative defense to a prosecution under this section that, under circumstances manifesting a voluntary and complete renunciation of his criminal intent, the defendant prevented the commission of the crime solicited. A renunciation is not “voluntary and complete” if it is motivated in whole or in part by a decision to postpone the commission of the crime until another time or to substitute another victim or another but similar objective. If the defendant raises the affirmative defense at trial, the defendant has the burden of proving the defense by a preponderance of the evidence.
(c) It is not a defense to a prosecution under this section that the person solicited could not be convicted of the crime because he lacked the state of mind required for its commission, because he was incompetent or irresponsible, or because he is immune from prosecution or is not subject to prosecution.

Im seeing more of these on vehicle in my area, it is great to have an opinion but encouraging felony gun violence does not seem very adult or American to me.

I can certainly understand the Constitutional right to free speech, however, speech that promotes, incites, or advocates violence, harm, or murder is illegal. You can yell at, cuss at, or scream at anyone so long as threats are not made, but signs like this are akin to yelling “FIRE!” in a crowded theater, or chasing down a random person and shouting to passersby to kill him.
If I were to walk around in public holding a sign that said “Kill the President”, or “Shoot all police”, there is no doubt I would quickly be arrested and charged with a crime.
So explain to me how selling signs that advocate murder are acceptable. Why is this company not being investigated or charged with a crime?

Thanks for the links. I’ve been looking for this stuff.
