Kik kreeper accused of using dead mother's phone for child porn
Richard Funk

Police in Burlington, Wisconsin received a tip from the National Center For Missing And Exploited Children who in turn had received a tip from mobile messaging app Kik that someone was using their platform to share child porn. Will wonders never cease considering how often Kik is used for this.

Anyway, Kik states that a user who goes by the screen name of ‘godd999’ (Oh, how edgy) had uploaded child porn files to Kik that contained images of children ranging in ages from 7 to 10.

Investigators were able to track the IP address to the home of 40-year-old Richard Funk. Funk was said to have had two phones that allegedly contained child porn with one having belonged to his now-deceased mother.

In police interviews, it seems like Funk tried to deflect the blame to Kik itself…

“It’s stupid internet (expletive). It was hit or miss, but it wasn’t for me.” He said that it got weird with things like underage pictures, animals and food.

He said that he got into a Kik group where you get things sent to you and you send them to others and trade images. He said it was good at first, but that he kept getting added to Kik groups.

He said eventually got out of it because it got creepy and people were talking about things like children and bestiality.

You know you can actually decline invitations to those groups, right? It’s not like when some other creeper invites you to a group that you’re required to join like some kind of blood pact.

While Kik may have tipped off authorities this time, I would imagine they are reporting only the tiniest fractions of criminal activity that takes place through their service.

I really can’t think of a good segue so I’m just going to shoehorn this reminder in that Kik is overridden with sex offenderspedophiles, and child porn collectors.

As an aside, who in their 40s still uses 666 derivatives in their username? Leave that shit back in high school where it belongs.
