There is a post from October 2008 regarding Tony Alamo. He is the founder of the Tony Alamo Christian Ministries, which is widely considered to be a cult. He was arrested in September and is currently facing ten child abuse charges in the state of Arkansas. A total of thirty-two children have been seized from his ministries. He will be facing trial in February 2009.
Twenty-three year old Aaron Jay Lemmon answered an ad on Craigslist for a babysitter. He then used the child he was "babysitting" to make a pornographic video. This happened in Minnesota, but it can happen anywhere. Sexual predators are using the internet to prey on others, and this site is just another way for them to contact people and gain access to them. Craigslist is doing its part by joining a pact with forty other states to try and prevent people from using the site for illegal activities, but each one of us needs to be aware and protect ourselves as best we can. Social networking sites and places like Craigslist are great resources, but can also be dangerous places for all people.
