U.S. predators use video games to lure Canadian kids

Winnipeg police have recently investigated seven cases of online predators who lure children through gaming consoles, a problem that is often undetected and under-reported.

Det.-Sgt. Darren Oleksiuk of the Winnipeg Police Service’s Internet Child Exploitation (ICE) unit said police are made aware of new cases of luring through online gaming each month and have investigated seven recently.

All but one involved a Winnipeg child interacting with a suspected predator in the United States.

CBC contacted several police organizations across Canada. While many indicated they were aware of cases, none would share details.

Searches of court files found three cases of predators luring children through online games, leading to arrests in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., Trois Rivieres, Que. and St. John’s, N.L.

Signy Arnason, the director of Cybertip.ca, said the organization has warned parents about predators using gaming consoles to contact children since 2005. (Culture, PC, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)

Tie a rope around a pedos balls tie the other end to an over pass. Push the sicko off the over pass and watch him swing. Play a game with your friends see how many big rigs can hit him before he dies.

Parents just need to educate their kids more about the internet, online chatrooms and online gaming. And the fact this is CBC which is bad I prefer CTV News myself. As for the Playstation home its not just adults asking sexual favors you can have little sick 12 yr olds out there to.

If you raise your kids "fine" then pedo's are a non issue.
All this fear mongering and scaring people is so over exagerated, its basicaly criminal on its own.

I got a 9 month old daughter, and i refuse to see every man/women around her as a threat, this paranoid behaviour does more harm to the child and the community then anything other.

this Pedo propaganda is getting out of hand..

today's kids are raised on the Internet. they see porn and become sexualized at a much earlier age.

when I was growing up, I had no idea that I was sexually attractive to older men/women. yet today, kids by the age of 10 are very aware that they can be desired and again are too much aware of what sex is how vast it's fetishes can be.

the laws need to change and people need to stop being so stupid. there is a HUGE difference between a monster that rapes a 5 yr old baby and some perv that has a consensual relationship with some 13 yr old perv child.

BECAUSE the general public is so out of touch with reality, generally a baby raper that destroys a human life, ends up getting the same amount of time as the teacher that's been seduced by the horny cheerleader.

because of the media and because of how unbelievably dumb people have become, every retard parent thinks everyone's a pedo out to rape their baby, yet when they grow up and can speak and ask for a computer and webcam, they go ahead and give it to them without the slightest hint of thought.

I highly doubt the MONSTER's that rape babys and or purchase child sex slaves are playing xbox live or psn, trolling for their next victim.

The reality is, those Monsters are your politicians and local business owners. These sick f*cks build rape rooms and buys kids from other countries. These are the Monsters we need to wake up too and go after.

One sex slaves torture doesn't compare to a million middle aged pervs trolling for equally perverted parentless teens on xlive..

It's amazing the horrors that media can cover up with half truths and false perceptions..

Its nice to finally see someone doesn't have their head up their ass bubbles to you.
Sucitta  +   530d ago
thank you = ) I need them lol, I lost them for talking poorly about Forza..

I returned the favor = ) Bubble party !

on topic, it's such a shame that the powerful men that preform unspeakable horrors upon defenseless kids walk freely amongst the power players of the world.

because the public refuses to accept the true horrors of War or Slavery, nothing will ever come to light of the sickest of sick..

the Hostel movies are very close to how the real world works, only the victims are almost always kids ages 2-15. They are bid on and disposed of by some of the biggest corporations in the world.

both the UN, NATO and Halliburton have been caught red handed trafficking human beings and it's just recently taken over the drug trade as the most profitable black market product. Humans for Organs, Sex and Slavery.

just think for one minuet what it would be like to be sold into the sickest of sicks homes. where you will most certainly die after months if not years of the worst types of torture/rape.

these crimes are so unspeakable and taboo that most people will choose to ignore them, even when it hits the mainstream..

personally im so ashamed to be apart of this New World.. A world where information is available to everyone and still most would rather have it spoon fed to them via bias corporations that spin everything.

the darkest science fiction depictions of our future wont even come close to the future we're all currently hurling towards.

thank the gods for video games, puppies, mountains and marijuana, or I would have flown the coop a long time ago..

those damn 'mericans!

By your use of "'mericans" I'm assuming you're being sarcastic, but since the issue will inevitably come up, I'll address it in response to your comment (which may or may not be serious).

There are 10 Americans to every Canadian. What are the chances that a neighboring country, that also speaks mostly English and has 10x the population, would have a predator from that neighboring country conversing with a child of the first country on an international gaming service, over it being a native predator?

10x the chance due solely to population differences.

So there's absolutely no cause to turn this into an issue of "Americans being horrible" as the internet loves to do.

What happened to the Xenomorphs? Why would Predators hunt human kids instead??
