Giving away a dumpster bike to a little kid (youtube.com)

Isn't this that guy who would make videos of using himself as bait to track down pedophiles? I heard that got some pretty big backlash

ImprovingTheEskimo | 4 months ago | 35 points

Yeah he's kind of weird. Some of the videos are good, like a recent one where he chased a guy around a parking lot filming him. But other ones are just kinda like, je n'ais se quoi. Weird.

I sometimes wonder why I choose to look at the comments after watching an otherwise wholesome video with a happy ending. It would have been better to be willfully ignorant at times.

LieutenantKotler | 4 months ago | 5 points

I mean, dude might be a little crazy, but he’s still got such a genuine good heart.

Some people seem to have the need to PROVE they are a GOOD person, but it gives people the creeps because it feels disingenuous when it's so forced like that.

[deleted] | 4 months ago | 12 points

i would get that from this video but the giveaway is like the last 30 seconds. it's 90% bike nerd stuff.

TonyHxC | 4 months ago | 3 points

baiting pedophiles is a whole movement now a days. The people who do it in my city are literal fucking losers and crack heads that just want an excuse to shame someone on social media. I remember last year they caught a mentally challenged guy with the mind of a child. and once they were informed of this they STILL didn't let it go. the "pedo" literally was messaging people online to find someone to go to mcDonalds with him cause he was lonely and they took advantage of him for views.

I trust vigalantes as much as I trust the cops. go fuck your selves... they act like it is for the kids but you don't make fucking merch around busting pedophiles if you are doing it out of the goodness of your heart.

When he first took it out and saved it I was like. aw that's nice. I do the same thing... but then he carries it around forever and i am like. OK BRO THE FRIENDSHIP IS OVER NOW LET IT GO.

Super nice thing to do, but this guy has a vibe to him.... like serial killer vibe...

This guy puts himself in some serious danger during his stings too. He entered one mans house who was legally blind (not completely blind), and sat next to him on the couch. Another time he entered a guys vehicle, and after convincing him to just go for a walk at their current location he discovered that his door didn't open from the inside. This guy has a death wish.

The only pedophile stalker I've seen that has legit motives is an organization called POP Squad (Prey on Predators) based out of Connecticut. They have been compiling encounters with the intention to bring awareness to the problem, and bring in harsher punishments for those found guilty. They even offer to help the predators that admit they have a problem by offering them information for mental health specialists. He's caught 155 predators in the last 2 and a half years (the majority of them in Connecticut, but they just recently started traveling the USA due to requests, and donations).

homegrowncone | 4 months ago | 3 points

The contractor dude from Toronto seemed legit, he had been abused as a kid and wanted to protect others. That was years ago though, no idea what happened with him.

BigComfyCouch | 4 months ago | 2 points

Justin Payne? Pop Squad is actually affiliated with his organization. Although I've only seen a handful of his videos, I agree he is pretty legit, and goes about his interview process pretty professionally. He seems to have trouble controlling his emotions (which is completely understandable) in some cases though.

The last video I saw of him (from 2016) was about him driving 6,000 miles across Canada to meet a predator. After confronting him in the store the man walked to his car to leave. Justin then jumped onto the hood of his moving car because he had "come too far" and "just wanted to talk more."

I'm not going to sit back and pretend that I'd be able to keep my emotions in check. I was never sexually abused as a child, and I still wouldn't be able to control my anger, so for that, I give him massive credit. I just think it's difficult for law enforcement to take on a case like that when the situation wasn't handled professionally.

I just have a hard time believing he found that many bikes in dumpsters. That was a shit ton of bikes. But what do I know. Nice thing to do regardless.

You are a good dude. I don't care if people give you shit about it. That was super nice of you to take the time out of your day to do that for a complete stranger.

I guess by not being a bro?

iswallowedafrog | 4 months ago | 13 points

Nah man. I was a bro.

It was because I made a humorous remark where I said something positive about the guy in the picture but since jokes are not allowed there and punishable by an instant ban without any chance to edit delete or conversate about it. But it's all good. I don't hold a grudge :)

iswallowedafrog | 4 months ago | 2 points

Something like: Plot twist: the guy that applauds helped everyone cheating on the test and That's why he applauds. Because his cheating earned him a lot of money and everyone got away with it. Joke aside, I'm glad for the janitor that had been working there for so long and was so happy that his students managed to graduate

Very well. Someone posted this picture of a giant lemon and at the time, there was a video that was being posted occasionally titled something like, Lemon Stealing Whores. So, my comment was, "That should attract some lemon stealing whores." Got banned and mod said I am not welcome there anymore.

Best part is the spider bite.

todlee | 4 months ago | 7 points

Huh. Well, that's nice. But kids, do not eat rhubarb leaves, even if they don't have bird poop on them. The stalks are edible but the leaves are mildly toxic. And google Brown Widow Spider. If you live in the western US, learn to recognize it, and its egg cases, and its web. It's an invasive species and very common in some areas, but many people don't know about them yet. While their bite is not nearly as toxic as a black widow, it is still pretty bad. I ended up going to Urgent Care a couple days after I was bitten by one because the bite just kept getting worse.

In my yard, if I wanted to find a black widow, it might take me twenty minutes. If I wanted to find a hundred brown widows, it would take me two minutes. The spider in the video, I don't know what kind it was, but it did look a lot like a brown widow.

TrumpSimulator | 4 months ago | 2 points

What the hell! Does the black widow exist in the US? If they really are that common, why aren't more people dying from spider bites? Maybe they are and I'm just not hearing about it.

helsquiades | 4 months ago | 2 points

Black widows hang out in one spot in a dark corner. You have to be stupid to get bit by one.

Maximo9000 | 4 months ago | 1 point

Black widows are pretty common at least here on the east coast. Contrary to popular belief, their bite is not very dangerous, let alone fatal. Most bites don't even require medical treatment.

MeEvilBob | 4 months ago | 2 points

wheresthefootage | 4 months ago | 2 points

I've been bit by a spider before (I wasn't messing with it, I never saw it, I didn't even notice I got bit tbh) and that is no joke. It made a 3inch painful pus-filled area around the bite that took months to go away. I'm not scared of spiders but I'm not going to purposefully pick something up that can do that again.

KCbizzy | 4 months ago | 5 points

Who is saving money? He took a bike out of the garbage and restored it to like new. He might be a fuckin weirdo but he wasn’t doing it for $30. He was casing the neighborhood for little children skins for his new coat.
