RI man convicted of Backpage murder

I guess the murdering of Backpage prostitutes has become so prevalent that I don’t hear about all of them. For example 34-year-old James A. Adams, of Warwick, Rhode Island, was just recently convicted in the 2012 murder of 20-year-old Backpage prostitute Mary Grier. Adams is said to have used Backpage to try to rob one […]

Trench’s Further Adventures in Linux: I try to review Zorin OS Core 10 RC

I’ve been a fan of Zorin OS since Core 5. At the time I thought it was the greatest Linux distro of all time. I used longer than any other distro I had tried at the time. Future iterations of the OS made me less in love with it even though it was still a […]

Backpage allowing free sex ads but desperation is showing

With Visa and Mastercard recently cutting ties with Backpage the controversial website is now allowing sex ads to be posted for free with the insulting promo code of #FREESPEECH. Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel after all. I guess #FREEDOMFORALL as a promo code was shot down, or in Backpage’s case chained to […]

I didn’t think I’d be doing another story about the modeling scam so soon yet here we are. Police in Horry County, South Carolina, which includes Myrtle Beach, have arrested 32-year-old Paul Joseph Shuler for allegedly raping a 20-year-old woman he met through craigslist. Police say that Shuler posted an ad looking for models to […]

Trench addresses the Facebook Confederacy of Dunces

I know Facebook isn’t the apex of intelligent political discourse but I was shocked at the amount of people, who I thought were smarter than that, defending the confederate flag. Yes, I know it’s not the official flag of the confederacy, stop being pedantic, and while you’re looking up the definition of pedantic you may […]

A Voice For the Innocent has an important announcement

My friends over at child advocacy group A Voice For the Innocent, based in Cincinnati, have recently made an important announcement in regards to the help that they need. In their own words AVFTI’s goal is to allow people to share their stories of sexual abuse and rape to a listening ear who won’t judge […]

DARPA helps law enforcement fight human trafficking on the dark web

One of the most frequent arguments I hear against shutting down Backpage’s adult ads is that it will drive the traffickers and pimps further underground. It turns out that they’re already there and if DARPA has any say it they won’t be hiding there long. DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) is the agency under […]

The Kentucky Attorney General’s office say that 42-year-old Gregory Mathis, of Louisville, allegedly posed as a 15-year-old on Facebook to solicit explicit photos from underage girls.

Married Kik Kreeper used modeling scam to solicit pics from girls as young as 12

I’ve posted about the modeling scam many times before. Basically how it works is an online predator will pose as someone in charge of a modeling agency and will solicit underage girls for explicit photos or even try to get the girls to travel them for either molestation or child prostitution. I’ve posted about the […]

This week both Visa and MasterCard said that their cards will no longer be able to be used to place ads on Backpage.

Facebook vigilantes beat California homeless man because of hoax

Here is just one more reason why you shouldn’t believe everything that’s posted on Facebook.
