Violent RSO charged with sharing child porn on Kik
Randall Eugene Bateman

Do you know how I’m always saying that mobile messaging app Kik is full of sex offenderspedophiles, and child porn collectors? Well, today’s subject is all three wrapped into one. You could say he’s the ultimate Kik kreeper.

37-year-old Randall Eugene Bateman is considered to be a violent sex offender by the state of Tennessee. He’s accused of allegedly sharing on Kik multiple videos of children being sexually abused. Some of the children in the videos are believed to be as young as four-years-old. Bateman is said to have admitted to police that he shared the videos on Kik.Click here for more stories about Kik

So why was Bateman on the sex offender registry you might ask? It’s funny that you ask that because I originally posted about Bateman back in 2006. Back then, Bateman was arrested for the statutory rape of a minor and taking explicit videos and pictures of his victim who he met on MySpace.

After his 2006 arrest, I never heard what kind of sentence Bateman received. As far as I can tell, he only received probation if I’m reading the Tennesee DOC website correctly.

If he is considered a violent offender by the state, why wasn’t he kept on a tighter leash, you know, like real prison time?

And as for Kik, are they doing anything to try to keep violent sex offenders like this from trading child pon on their platform? It sure doesn’t seem like it.
