Stop the trolling! This is about kids being victimized! Any color or gender of person can be a SICKO. Those boys did the right thing. They are heros. Who knows how many other boys this pervert was or could have hurt.

Chances are, if this is accurate, there are more victims.
Please come forward. It is not your fault. You didn’t cause this. You were the victim. The best way is to Contact the FBI directly.

Good for the mom doing phone checks, and social media checks!
So many parents dont.
I'm not sure if its cause they want to be a friend instead of a parent.
Or...they feel their child deserves privacy.
Reality is teenagers aren't equipped to handle certain situations, and can often do something out of pressure - like these guys are saying - they felt pressure to give in to the requests.
Its not about privacy. It's about protecting your children!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16. God punishes sin. Do not regard man. Follow God’s righteousness. Man leads you astray. Don’t worship celebrities they are sinful and don’t hid it. Sin is greed, selfishness, wrong teaching and philosophies, fornication and adultery, not helping orphans, widows, strangers like to our country and the poor.

Moms, Dads, Parents—-This mom made the mistake of deleting a sexually explicit video from the alleged perpetrator.
Lesson here: if you ever find anything from a possible predator on your child’s phone, NEVER delete it. Instead, make a copy. Think of it as evidence. Note the time and date. Preying on children is more common than you can imagine. Look into buying a phone monitoring software created specifically to ensure this isn’t happing. Educate yourself on vids like Snapchat and how they work—like many vids auto delete after a period of time so your child may have been sent something that is unavailable.
Also, if you’re on the fence about something, trust your gut. Most people will help you too if you reach out.

Let me give you a run down on why they wait a couple years later to investigate and file charges.. They just want the money and attention. Something that they don’t have and are taking away from Jerry once he became known as Jerry, the star of “Cheer”, Netflix Series. To “block” one is to CHOOSE to not engage in one. Baby I see you doing nothing but replying to him 🤭. YOU let it continue to happen. YOU led him & chose to let it continue to happen. YOU are as guilty as he is. But no let’s just put the blame on the adult bc it’s easier to get people to believe that.

That is sad but I am not surprised. It’s not only black families suffering from fatherless family dynamics, obviously many white families are suffering from lack of healthy masculine fathers stability, discipline, guidance and love.

NETFLIX!!! Promoting p3dophillia since 2020. All parents should be making routine phone checks on their kids' smartphones and devices, and teach them not to become victims like this. Educate them properly as much as you can about safety online.
Side point but why are both these kids so effeminate?
Edit: Oh Yh they're cheerleaders.

If you're a minor, you have the choice to NOT show up on a clip and chat about this type of thing, right? And the um . . 'flexibility' photo. Kinda weird. Might not be the last time this happens to these kids. Probably not the most popular thing to point out, when the topic is abuse of a minor. Just saying, that if a 16 year old girl cheerleader was abused, and submitted a 'contortionist' pose for the clip might not be deemed necessary or normal. Sounds like Harris did something really awful. Last time, I spoke to a teenager was 10 years ago. I was at a cafe, having a coffee. He was high. His father was picking him up, and we chatted about snow boarding and video games. He said he was getting a sponsor that year. He said his dad was really cool with drugs and girls. Teenagers, who are cooler than most, will talk to a grown up, at times. Just kinda weird if you make friends with them, though. You know?

Ok but snap doesn’t censor anything so at 1:44 it’s kinda weird that that is censor and it looks like a normal photo that they could have changed to make it say that just a thought

This is so disappointing. I don’t think those twins are innocent, they k ew what they were doing, they didn’t get preyed on. But!! The mom did a good job at stop her boys from making the wrong mistake and putting themselves in danger. Kids don’t always think straight. Jerry is now 21... he is no longer a 19 year old child.

So disappointed in him. I was rooting for him! I prayed for his success!
