This article is being written for all the children that Katelyn herself would want to help.
On Dec 30th 2016 Katelyn Nicole Davis took her life.Katelyn streamed her suicide using an app called LiveMe. Her suicide video went viral and the police had no control over it's removal from the Internet. Katelyn's story is tragic and it captured the attention of people worldwide. Everyone fell in love with her big blue eyes and bright smile. We couldn't believe that behind all of that was so much sadness and pain.
Since then there has been many people advocating for justice on her behalf. Katelyn left an online diary. In her diary she spoke of being "catfished", bullied and made allegations of sex abuse against her step father, neglect by her mother and abandonment by her biological father. Katelyn has touched so many lives and has left her mark here on the internet. She wanted to be heard and we heard her loud and clear. Sadly when we heard her it was too late.

THE HORRORS OF SOCIAL MEDIA THAT EVERY PARENT SHOULD KNOW
Most of you think your child is safe because they know better than to talk to people they don't know. Well let me tell you that's not how social media works. Even you have spoken to people you don't know on your own Facebook or other social platforms. How do you expect your child to know better when you don't? That's what we're here for. To educate parents and give them a glimpse into the other side of social media.
Here you will be linked to actual pedophiles and their wrong doings. You will see actual Facebook groups that cater to pedophilia and some of the members comments. Keep in mind these groups are public and some of these men are registered sex offenders and some of them are not. And all of this is happening right under our noses.
*WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT - PLEASE BE ADVISED*
Your 11 year old wants a Facebook. What harm can it do right? So to accommodate them you alter the year of birth and say
"It's okay I can monitor them."
Reality is NO YOU CAN'T nor can you monitor what they are viewing. You may have control of who can send them a friend request or think you do but you do not. As mentioned above if you or ANY family member speaks to anyone they don't actually know in real life and they are friends with your child the "stranger" can now send your monitored child a friend request. It's that friends of friends thing you forgot about.
I'm not knocking anyone's parenting skills.What I am doing is pointing out the flaws in Social Media you don't think about. Most parents think its okay they're on my friends list or I can sign in as them. It's okay we've all thought the same thing at one point or another.
There are certain things your child can access and once they've seen it they can't "unsee" it so to speak.
I know it's a lot to think about and how could this be happening on Facebook of all places? Well it is happening and it is very real. Let's start with the public groups easily accessible by anyone of any age while using this social platform.
This group is a restart of the original. The original public group had over 24,000 members and 340 of them were active. What is active? That means 340 people were liking commenting and sharing the photos posted in this group. At a glance the pictures were what seemed to be masturbatory photos selected to keep the group members involved. As if that wasn't disgusting enough the comment section of these posts were nude photos of children and grown men asking for more.Sick right? you have no idea...
**before you click the link remember that warning**
Since the discovery of these groups we have managed to get most of them removed.If we find more we will keep you updated.Here are some screen shots from the original group..try not to vomit.
Let's talk about Larry K
There are many comments by Larry in the original group. Each comment more revolting than the last. It seems Larry K likes little boys and little girls. He does not discriminate. Larry K is a registered sex offender. His crime took place in Wyoming he was released after paying his dues to Mississippi.Larry is listed as being in Mississippi and homeless.
Larry is nowhere he says he is. In fact hes listed his addresses as being in New Jersey and also in Kentucky and a few places in between. Larry's Facebook says he is married to a lovely drug addicted lady and now living in Kentucky. After speaking to her daughter it seems they're homeless and they do not stay anywhere that long. I wonder why! Anyway his hell-beast is well aware he's a pedophile and stands by her man. Seems these two hit the matrimonial lottery.
Before we move on mom hasn't ever been responsible for her children. Her teen daughter has never met her nor has her teen son. Thank God for that huh?
*Larry has been reported to Wyoming sex offender registry and also to the ICE Predator Unit*
Now let's chat about Sandy S
Sandy is a rapist sodomite from California. He seems partial to young boys ages 10 and up.I think his record speaks for itself. Here are a few screen shots of Sandy S and his online activities.
*This sick sob has also been reported to his local authorities*
Here is a glimpse of what was in the comments section of the group posts. I hope you have a barf bag because you're going to need it.
Here we have photos of naked children that were posted in the comments section of the group photos.This is beyond disgusting.
By Now you're probably wondering "So what does this have to do with my kid on the internet?"
It has everything to do with your child and every child.Keeping them safe from predators like Larry K and Sandy S is priority. what you've seen here is a small glimpse of who and what is on social media.This example was from Facebook. There are many other social media platforms that are a lot less monitored. A fine example is LiveMe. The application is a pedophiles dream. It seems so long as you agree that you're 13 or older you can do whatever you please. LiveMe is just bad news.
This brings me to the next two individuals that turn my stomach. One of them was discovered on LiveMe when Katelyn passed. He was there collecting broken girls for his LIVE TEEN Group on Facebook. Geoff E tells young girls he can help them with their problems. Passes on advise promises gifts and professes his attraction to them when he thinks they are at their most vulnerable stage. He attempts luring them to him saying he has police involved and ex military that can keep them safe.(All we found was his 12 year stay in jail for attempting to run down two police officers so he couldn't be arrested for his drug deal going bad) The other dude is James V . He is a homosexual male with mental problems.He openly admits being addicted to young boys and suffering from depression and several other ailments.
These men are NOT sex offenders they have never been charged.It is unknown rather they've committed any sex offences but their online activities are something to definitely look out for.
Meet James V
James is also in the screen shots from the group with Larry and Sandy! These three men don't know each other but they all knew where to find underage children to indulge their perversions. This guy looks like someones grandpa or your neighbor.He seems harmless doesn't he? *coughs*
Meet Geoff E
Pretty creepy stuff from two gentlemen that have no record of being arrested a day in their lives for a sex offense.
This just goes to show you that you cant always count on finding information on Megans Law or NSORB. Not every predator has been arrested and keeping that in mind do not count on Facebook being able to keep the registered ones off their site. Every time your child sign on he or she could very well run into one of these scheming perverts. People like Geoff E,Larry K,James V and Sandy S are counting on it.
