Now this is how you use social media to protect your kids. According to Fox affiliate station, WJBK, Antoine Martin, a Detroit father, was checking his 13 year old daughter’s Facebook page when he noticed inappropriate messages from an older man. The suspect, was a 22 year old man who worked at the Southeastern Michigan Boys and Girls Club. Martin’s daughter, Ariel, who frequented this Boys and Girls Club location, met the suspect there.
From there Martin took it upon himself to bring the man to justice. He started chatting with the suspect, pretending to be his daughter. The conversation quickly escalated from the suspect wanting to be a “big brother” figure to a “secret boyfriend” who wanted to have sex with Ariel.
Martin invited the suspect to his home. Once he arrived, he grabbed and handcuffed the suspect where he was able to collect his confession on tape.
MARTIN: “You know how old Ariel is?”
SUSPECT: Yes, I know how old Ariel is.
MARTIN: How old is Ariel?
SUSPECT: She’s 13.
MARTIN: And how old is you?
SUSPECT: I’m 22.
