What a true friend! If it wasn't for him his murder would have been swept under the rug along with the other Murders.

What happened to these young men is horrible. Grindr is a disgusting app, used basically like a legal prostitution app for gay men. Like prostitutes these young men were living very high risk lifestyles. Prostitution, drugs etc.

John Pape and Nickole Atkinson (Shannan Watts friend) are the type of friends ppl should have. Why have hundres of social media friends when only 1 or 2 may be the only good ones.

Poor response by the police after being criticized. There is no "lgbt community" way to drug and kill people. This means scapegoating the scapegoat again. Ridiculous.

FFS why do you keep calling them gay dating sites? Call them what they are. Websites where gays can find other men for anonymous ( drug induced) gay sex..... disgusting..... you reap what you sew.

Someone can also forcefully make you write a suicide note by threatening your life if you don't comply with what they want you to do so although they may have been the person to have written the note it doesn't mean that they wanted to write the note it could be that that person writing down the words of what someone else wanted them to say also if that person that wrote the suicide note was the one responsible for killing his friend why are. Boys only and around the same age may I add still showing up dead in almost identical ways after that person took his life because of the guilty conscience he had of him being the reason why his friend died(? And a statement) also the guy and this video who helped solve his friend's death should be a detective or some type of investigator he is very smart at finding out the truth everyone is important doesn't matter who you are and everybody should be treated fairly black white asian straight gay disabled we should all be treated fairly and treated like human beings

Jeffrey Dahmer was reported by neighbor Glenda Cleveland for having 14 year old Konerak Sinthasomphone with him in his apartment. Glenda Cleveland BEGGED the officers to help the boy, telling them something wasn’t right in that apartment, and that men went missing in there. What did he officers do? Officer Gabrish and Officer Balcerzak believed Dahmer when he said the child (who was not only clearly a child, but also clearly drugged), was his “lover.” The officers also blew off the fact that the apartment had a disturbing smell, along with blood, and evidence of criminal activity. After Gabrish and Balcerzak handed the child back to Dahmer, they were recorded making homophobic and racist remarks - the racist remarks directed at the soon to be deceased victim Konerak (whose head Dahmer drilled into right after the police left), and the poor woman who tried to save the boy, Glenda. There are many officers that are amazing, and then you have officers that willfully don’t care because they are homophobic/racist/sexist, and believe the victims “have it coming.” This case reminds me so much of the Dahmer case that it is painful. Police who don’t care because it is a marginalized community - one they don’t care about, and rather believe the victims are just “getting what’s coming to them.” Canada has a long and sordid history of allowing serial killers to roam free in communities they deem “lesser than. Two good examples are Willy Pickton, who murdered multiple prostitutes and had them rendered into bacon, and the Highway of Tears, which has claimed countless First Nations women (and men). It is time Canada had a massive governmental overhaul, especially considering how those in charge have been recorded as saying these people “deserve” what is happening to them, and that they are “not a priority.” The lives of these victims mattered, and they still matter. It’s time we stop allowing injustice to roam free within institutions that have deep roots of hatred towards anything “other.” Stand up if you see something that isn’t right, don’t stop fighting to be heard, and protect yourself and others in need. We need to be a community that helps the most vulnerable, not one that gives into institutionalized homophobia, racism, and sexism.

Stop going online to meet people. Thats the no1 thing pshycopaths use to trap their victims is online dating apps. Look at the murder rates before and after online dating started.

Because they were gay men, the police didn't take this seriously. Meanwhile young men are dying, unfortunately this isn't uncommon of law enforcement. Thank goodness for John for letting the world know these young men are human beings. You are right John that's exactly how gay men are viewed. It shouldn't take murder for officers to do their jobs of protecting its citizens, all citizens not just some.

John, Thank you and God bless you for staying on top of these cases. Without you, resolution to these murders may have NEVER been realized! You, my friend, did all the work for the police and deserve the credit. I hope the family, friends and loved ones of these young men may rest a bit essier because of your relentless efforts and tenacity. John, Thank you again!

The british police were not at all concerned about these murders, and is why they insisted theses deaths were NOT suspicious because, .....they involved ONLY gay men and boys. Many police agencies, not just in the UK but elewhere, take the stance that, .... ....."Uh, who cares, it's just a bunch of nasty, sissy di*k sucking queers (puffs) killing other queers. They're doing us all a big favor by eliminating one another. It's a good thing. We don't have to get our hands dirty dealing with such vulgar scum. They deserve whatever happens to them. It's God's way of eliminating the trash from the earth, just like AIDS. We'll just turn a blind eye, sweep it all under the carpet and pretend it never happened. It'll all go away and everyone will soon forget about it!" This is exactly why I have NOTHING but contempt for the filthy, low-life, scum-bag, corrupt police! They all cover for one another which makes them culpable and thetefore, ....ALL evil, guilty and responsible non-human garbage!
Pample Moose (1 month ago)
How stupid and inept are the police in the UK? You are telling me that they were so damn dumb whereby they couldn't do a simple Google search just as you had done, in order to establish a connection? These police officers are absolutely inept. They need to be arrested for stealing the publics money for a job they were not qualified, nor smart enough to do.

I will say again that cops are dumb and or crooked and not much else. People become cops either because they got picked on in school and want a badge and gun to pick back, they were the bully in school and want to keep picking on people as a cop because they loved it, or they're just too damn dumb to do anything else and they have to feed themselves somehow. I'm so tired of these clowns being held up as Heroes that they are not. The hero cops are few and far between.

Wow.. Just wow.

I'm so glad justice was served and the sick prick was caught. RIP to the beautiful souls who were taken, simply because of who they loved.

Henry Black (1 month ago)
It's the English police who are slacking here. The serial killer is English & killed people in the country of England, hence the reason English police were dealing with, & failing, in the case. Killer now serving time in an English prison, put there by an English court using English Law. Be ashamed of being English.

So why would Stephen Port message the guy investigating his crime with information??? Meh, I guess if he was dumb enough to fake a suicide note with "don't blame the guy I was with last night" he was dumb enough to do that

Thank fuck I'm a straight guy, we're 98% of the male population, so even though we're probably tasty pieces of meat to the rest of the population, they can't do shit because we're the ones breeding them so they better respect us if they don't want to be written out of the gene pool.

I think that Stephen Port was a scapegoat for the old men that without a doubt have power and money to do this.
ANDRUU SCOTT (2 months ago)
But the EU live in a society now, where you get offended over any little thing. Especially words. Protest take place. So even if it did lead to Stephen Port. People would doubt and claim "homophobia for assuming a gay man could do this. The police are targeting LGBT people based on their sexuality". Intersectionality and sensitivity to words is taking over the EU. So I have an inkling it wouldn't have gone down so easy if the police properly investigated

He shouldn’t feel guilty about giving that story a voice at all, because it should have led police directly to the killer in more ways than one. Not only would they have identified Stephen Port, but they were being given the whole motivation and methodology of the murders on a silver platter! Even though the story about the parties wasn’t true, there WAS an older man drugging, raping, and killing young gay men who were targeted for being in that demographic. All of those details were true, because liars often mix a bit of the truth in with their lies. That one witness and what he told them could have practically wrapped the case in a bow and prevented the next murder!
