CA: YouTube host leads police to arrest suspected sex offender in EG

Source: 8/18/21

The Elk Grove police on Aug. 11 arrested a 20-year-old man who allegedly visited Morse Community Park to have a sexual encounter with a minor in a restroom.

“Ghost,” who is a YouTube channel host and the anonymous leader of an self-described movement called, Creep Catching (CC) Unit, announced that their decoy operation led authorities to arrest Timothy ___ of Elk Grove.

CC Unit targets sexual predators online and then releases their video-recorded confrontations with them on YouTube. They also submit evidence to law enforcement in order to have the suspects arrested. The CC Unit in June reportedly led authorities to arrest a suspected sex offender in Roseville.

“The mission is to expose adults who prey on children,” Ghost told the Citizen about the CC Unit’s work. “Get these adults arrested and convicted for their crimes. Change laws to where predators get harsher punishments for their crimes against children.”

During the Elk Grove incident, the CC Unit confronted Timothy ___ at Morse Park before the police arrived. Ghost said that he then gave officers the text messages and online chats between the suspect and the decoy who posed as a 13-year-old boy.

“He was on our radar for four months,” he told the Citizen about the suspect.

These operations should be illegal for everyone including law enforcement. Claiming to be someone else for the purpose of luring others into acting in a certain way isn’t proof of a crime, it’s proof the person or persons involved in the bait and switch sting are terrible people. If society really wanted to help people there would be widespread promotions for mental health and other services for anyone wanting help to get it.

Here is the thing. We live in a different society now. I had an issue with prostitutes. You would be in shock to know how many illegal brothels operate under massage parlors. Some are located near schools, within medical buildings and the list goes on and on. There (true story) are several located within a tough on crime city in SOC where 30 plus operate and you can find/get anything there. One office building (near car dealerships/residences) has 10 plus massage parlors where the girls come to the windows (it’s like a red lights district) and wave you in. They still operate? I have a low view on people who do this. It ruins people’s lives and is very addictive. Why aren’t they registering? People should be outraged!

What If ACSOL threw a two-day event where they had speakers come from all across the United States to spread awareness of the harm the public registry is causing people and their families in America.
And let’s say 5.000 people showed up 3 days in advance to register with the local police department haveing jurisdiction over the city where the event was taking place, obviously it would be impossible to register that many people in 3 days the line would literally wrap around the building 3 times and still go down the street it would be similar to people waiting in line to see A Rolling Stones concert.
Can you imagine the news coverage every television station would be out there with helicopters in the sky the police chief will have to contact the mayor and the mayor would have to contact the governor and the governor would have to contact the Department of Justice and they would have to contact ACSOL and beg them to dismantle the event in the name of Public Safety.
We gotta fight fire with fire we’re not trying to reinvent the wheel or anything Martin Luther King already laid down the blueprint all we have to do is follow it to the T.
If ACSOL doesn’t have support from registrants when they need it then what’s the point, this fight isn’t just in a courtroom we also gotta fight publicly against the public’s opinion of what a sex offender is

Good luck

What is up with people pretending to be teens while going after adults in chatrooms than posting it on YouTube? Amateur training before enrolling in the police academy.

I concur with TMZ. Like him, I obtained my COR about a year ago … I’ve learned being angry and blowing up at others shows your mindset. Remember, people read these comments. … Nothing has changed

Thanks my fellow COR/off the registry: Those of us rehabilitated don’t lash out on others, accuse others of having issues – … Rehabilitation is a long process. It takes someone to change their mindset. … Best of luck

Will (park) Allen, this is a good example of why your here. I suggest you stop. You have shown you hate adults, like children/parks and you focus upon others perceived weaknesses. Your manipulative, deceptive and clearly seem to demonstrate entitlement! You try to play the victim, use manipulative language, ridicule and boast! I could be off the registry anytime I want? These are all character traits of ?

i rarely post comments, but really? Some of you hate propel/each other? Animals? I could get off the registry any time I want? You 2 guys are off the registry, but still here? Your all retards. Why are you still here? I’ve read some very deceptive comments. I think your all hypocrites and your ruining this website with your childish tit for tat antics. Nobody will win. The only people laughing are the moderators, general public who reads this and possibly the sex management board. We can hate the big government all we want, but think about what would happen if no laws existed? I’m clearly ashamed by my registry status, but you are all little kids. Playground like!
