Stinson: 'Pedo Hunter' Causes Kids Grief for Fun:
By Bernie Najarian
He was born Kieren Parsons in 1981, but in his 17th year he damaged his brand severely by burning down a school. No one was in the building at the time, luckily, but Hunter, who says “I wasn’t a nice person,” served 10 years in prison. In 2014, the then 32-year-old husband and father told Sam Dimmer of the Coventry Telegraph ,
What drives him? Was he ever sexually abused? Not as far as we know, though he claims some sort of abuse in a children’s home – but, of course, when it comes to being outraged about abuse, everyone reads the news. And Hunter is a new dad. Just as one might clear a new flat of bedbugs before moving in, why not do some hygiene, redeeming and employing oneself at the same time, by eradicating some pedophiles from his child’s new global playpen? He wants to do right this time. And much of his society believes in him now. Old youthful sex offenders may never be reliably reformed, in the popular view, but this old arsonist surely is. A Bafta-award-winning director, Dan Reed, loaned his skills to Hunter to produce a documentary on his efforts for British television’s Channel 4. Called ‘The Paedophile Hunter,’ it lauded his efforts while confronting some of the controversies involved. According to The Independent’s Jess Denham in Oct. 2014 
If you sense another shoe hovering here, then, as they say in dubstep music, get ready for the drop.
March 18 was also the day that a story that has been simmering on the internet for several weeks or months finally began to break out into the open. A story of Stinson Hunter, not the old one but the new, involved in the most unexpected and apparently contradictory activity you could possibly imagine.
It transpires that Hunter, in 2014, actively pursued a hobby called ‘griefing,’ a kind of publicized internet pranking, where his favorite activity was to invade the digital fantasy worlds of young boys in the online game Minecraft, and set fire to their digital buildings.
Huh? Is this story trolling? Is it fake? No. It’s all immaculately evidenced, and even tacitly confessed by Hunter himself.
It begins with a video  , posted on Nov 29, 2014 on a hosting website called vid.me (but possibly first posted elsewhere, some weeks or months earlier) that was produced by an acknowledged associate of Hunter, Michael Donald of Dunfermline, near Edinburgh, Scotland. Donald is 20-something, a dedicated internet trickster and online ‘football ‘ooligan’ who styles himself ‘The Karrit,’ ‘Killer Karrit’ and ‘Michael the Dug.’ He also frequently describes himself as a ‘c—t’ and a ‘bellend’ (a nasty popular insult implying an idiot, possibly malicious).
Donald's many and diverse pranks have broken into mainstream press reporting on at least one occasion – on 3 Jan, 2013 , Donald made waves by threatening to give out all his banking details online if “bottom of the table Queen’s Park Rangers would lose to European Champions Chelsea” in a televised football match. ‘QPR,’ as the Rangers are fondly known, did pull off an upset, but the bank details were not forthcoming.
One of the mainstays of Donald’s ‘KillerKarrit’ Youtube and other video channels is ‘griefing,’ as mentioned above – the destruction of the internal virtual inventories and constructions of online gamers. Here’s Donald’s introductory comment to one such adventure :
Games like Minecraft come in a communal, online version in which friendly users invite other members of the player community into their worlds to game with them. The competition in the games doesn’t turn around the destruction or preservation of the houses and other niceties that the hosting players have erected. The arrival of a gang of virtual thugs bent on destruction, then, is completely unexpected, and causes shock. The aptly named ‘griefing’ hobby consists of video-recording the shocked reactions, plus the gleeful destruction, and posting the resulting videos on the internet.
In the video cited above and a companion video , we see the virtual avatars of Donald and Hunter (clearly labelled ‘Stinson Hunter’), and hear the actual voices of these men as they lay waste to virtual worlds that have been constructed by boys whose voices have not yet changed. That Hunter and ‘The Karrit’ are best of friends is confirmed on Hunter’s Twitter channel.
“Stinson Hunter on Twitter (31 Jan 2014): "@KillerKarrit @kaneJL haha enter the karrit."
(Donald is being welcomed as he intervenes to insult a tweeter who was arguing with Hunter)
Their shared hobby is so revolting that the videos beggar belief. Only the fact that most viewers are not gamers and don’t understand what has happened has protected Hunter from the outrage his activities would surely provoke in the community. A supposed protector of online children spends his spare time causing pain and suffering to online children by trashing their video game constructions. It’s sickening.
Let’s look at what happens in the first video  . Tweeter Kamil Beylant has made a complete transcript of its dialogue, interspersed with comments on what is seen on the video screen . The video is clearly captured from the perspective of Donald’s ‘The Karrit’ Xbox online account.
It begins with a young boy’s shrill voice telling some men that they’re being horrible and asking them to get away. A few cuss words are thrown in. Later screen shots identify the boy as living in the US, and he has a distinct northern US accent.
A small megaphone symbol shows that player ‘Stinson Hunter’ is speaking. He says, “What’s wrong with you? What’s wrong with you?” His accent is clearly from the British midlands. Many online videos featuring Hunter show that he characteristically challenges people by rapidly asking the same question or making the same assertion twice.
The boy complains back, “What’s wrong with YOU? You dropped my house! Everything is gone!”
The video then shows a typed message to the viewer from Donald. It reads, “Then we convinced him to let us back into his world. We helped rebuild his house.”
Donald and Hunter re-enter the boy’s virtual world; the latter is seen as a robot-like figure in royal purple with an overhead banner saying ‘Stinson Hunter.’ Donald is seen from his viewer perspective wielding a device called a ‘stone sword.’ He begins smashing up blocks of debris that litter the virtual terrain, ostensibly cleaning up past damage. He calls the blocks ‘big c—ts’ and makes innuendo-laden remarks like ‘I love smashing c—ts.” The boy complains “this is going to take FOREVER!” Donald then begins smashing a wall, calling it a ‘cock.’ The action immediately provokes an outcry from the boy, since the wall is, he says, part of his “inventory,” the list of items he has won or built in the game.
But this is all a distraction. While Donald is stressing the boy with his slow destruction of debris, Stinson has been over at the boy’s seven-storey house, an item clearly made of virtual wood. Something is happening over there, out of our range of view. The boy suddenly shouts, “My house is on fire, my house is on fire!” Animated flames are bursting out of the fourth level of the house. We see another ‘griefer,’ a player called ‘xTSx iMoNsTeRv,’ climbing the house towards the fire, perhaps rushing to help put it out. Donald’s player enters the house and we see Stinson’s character inside. His player is the only one that has been in the right place to set a fire, though he makes an absurd statement, 'It's the forest fire.' There is no forest.
The boy’s ‘Sharkman12’ black robot character has remained outside the house. Donald then, while out of the boy’s online vision, quickly clicks to his inventory and loads his character with an item called ‘fuel.’ We see his character setting a new fire on the inside of the house.
The boy soon figures out that Stinson and Donald have been deliberately setting fire to his house. He uses his powers as host to expel the adults from his virtual world, but remains in voice dialogue with them. He says,
“First of all, your friend Hunter ... I just got stopped making my house and he’s trying to destroy it again … second of all, if you guys ever, ever, and I mean EVER try to invite me to anything again, well? you can go screw yourself, and call yourself a c—t! Yeah! I’m going to use that c—t word!”
There is much coarse laughter among the three adults involved. Donald tries to send the boy a ‘friend’ request that would give him higher access to the boy. The boy, who trusted Donald reluctantly after the first destruction of his property, has now been hardened.
“I don’t like you, and I don’t WANT to like you. Stop sending me friend requests. I DON’T LIKE YOU,” he shouts. “Nobody likes you! Not even Kerrit. Not even Monster. (He is apparently addressing Hunter here). I don’t like you NONE of you guys. So you guys - can f—k it.”
If the boy’s parents knew what sort of company he was keeping online, they would be livid. Though the boy clearly knows a few cuss words, his generous and trusting nature has been abused by a gang of guffawing adult British hooligans.
And the theme of their hooliganism is one you’d think Hunter would think twice about – arson.
The adults are so proud of themselves that they post their sadistic, child-tormenting videos on the internet. The video I’ve described, and a companion piece that shows the virtual worlds of another three boys being set on fire, are said to have been on the KillerKarrit and/or Stinson Hunter Youtube channels for a short while, but then withdrawn. Copies, however, are circulating elsewhere. Tweeter Eric Hardcastle re-posted the first video on his own Youtube channel but was obliged to remove it from public view when he received a violation of copyright complaint.
The official, legally enforceable complaint, according to Hardcastle, came from Stinson Hunter 
That’s the tacit confession of involvement that I referred to above.
Hunter makes no effort to claim that anyone is impersonating him in the ‘griefing’ videos, and in any case, given his close, long-time association with ‘The Karrit,’ such a claim would not be believable.
My Twitter researchers have all been blocked by Hunter, so he has not been available to answer questions.
Though it may seem unbelievable that a supposed child rescuer, reformed arsonist and public hero would busy himself cyberbullying little boys by setting virtual fire to their virtual worlds, Hunter’s action fits a pattern that long-time observers of the internet have seen many times.
You only need to ask yourself what sort of a personality type would identify himself as a ‘hunter’ of other human beings. There are many such people on the internet, including many masked members of the shadowy Anonymous movement, and Hunter has much in common with them.
The problem for a writer writing about such people is how to describe them without inadvertently insulting people who have ‘Shades of Grey’ aspects in their sexualities, that is interests in bondage, discipline and sadomasochism (BDSM). We commonly use the word ‘sadist’ to refer to two kinds of people: essentially kind and conscientious people who role-play sexually with whips, ligatures, and so on, and essentially sociopathic people who gain pleasure from tormenting others who are helpless and unwilling. Let’s call the latter ‘sociopathic sadists’ to keep them separate from the former group, which includes many good friends I’ve known.
Long study has shown that most freelancers who track or ‘hunt’ online pedophiles, whether the latter are trying to have sexual interactions with children or not, are not merely do-gooders who aren’t qualified to join the local police force. In keeping with the old saying ‘every prisoner wants to be a hero,’ such people are often sociopaths who are aware of their social shortcomings but also have a desire to feel good about themselves. It’s ideal for them if they can look heroic while doing something that gratifies their sociopathic urges. Humiliating and tormenting people who society despises as sexual deviants fills the bill perfectly. In 1975, people with this penchant, or at least males, would have got together in a cruisy park at night and looked for queers to bash. In 2015, that no longer seems heroic to anyone, so the compass of sociopathic heroism has pointed towards pedophiles.
A typical and well documented sociopathic sadist who made a major impact as an online pedophile tracker was Cynthia Jean Harvey, a 50-year-old computer security professional from Nashville, TN (12). Working undercover as ‘Determined,’ she was the chief administrator of a pedophile profiling website that sprang up under the umbrella of Perverted Justice (PJ). While most of PJ concentrated on chat-based entrapment schemes that caught people planning to stage illegal sexual encounters, Harvey’s department, Wikisposure, concentrated on finding and publishing the identities of people posting in online legal (not connected with child pornography) websites hosting discussions among persons attracted to minors.
It soon became clear that Harvey didn’t care if the people she undertook to expose were involved in illegal acts or not. She portrayed all pedophiles as dangerous, based on the ‘ticking time bomb’ meme that suggests that, since all deviants lack self-control (a residual 19th-century superstition), no one with pedophilic urges would be able to resist committing sexual assaults over the long term. When she uncovered the identity of one of the pseudonymous posters she was tracking, she and her colleagues did everything possible to warn the person’s online and offline friends, his parents, his employers, and so on, that he was a dangerous man who was probably raping children behind their backs. In a few cases, these efforts did unmask some lawbreaking; in many others, they merely resulted in the public hounding of conscientious non-offenders.
Harvey clearly didn’t care. She stalked teenagers online who spoke about experiencing attraction to young children, and she exposed them to the world as ‘sick,’ dangerous pedophiles as soon as they turned 18. She relentless violated the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) legislation by pinching and displaying personal images from private social media she had penetrated, and could not be induced to correct any factual error that had become mixed in with her poisonous rants about the ‘sick’ and ‘perverted’ people she was profiling. When PJ deleted her increasingly illegal web pages, she painstakingly reposted them independently as ‘evil-unveiled.com,’ using complex and costly identity masking techniques to prevent DMCA takedown. This website eventually floundered due to lack of financial support, but Harvey has again reposted its pages in one of the internet’s most consistently trashbaggy defamation websites, encyclopediadramatica.se, the TMZ of the nobodies.
Harvey was finally exposed, herself, by a dogged online sleuth styling herself ‘azu-info.’ It turned out that beside the pedo-hunting Determined, Harvey had a host of other online handles, and many of them were found on online sadomasochism sites. The most prominent was ‘TrainerC.’ Harvey was and is a sexual sadist, which in itself is arguably benign, but she admitted to several incidents in her past where her sadism had surpassed the usual boundaries. Says azu-info (substantiating links have been removed but can be seen at reference link  below):
The hero of Great Britain is a sociopathic sadist. But British society, in any case, has become something of a madhouse lately. The long-standing British nervousness about sex has been intensely microwaved with petapixels of online pornography and hundreds of new means to make wanton interpersonal connections. Faced with the imagined consequences of such liberal electronic communication, the national popcorn is starting to pop: the UK as a society is having a mental breakdown. A growing movement has arisen online that is determined to find that every member of the royal family, the broadcasting world, the politicians and the police have been involved in a decades-long, massive conspiracy to cover up rings of elite pedophilic serial murderers.
