Michael Brutsch: Creepshots and "Jailbait" Troll Unmasked
The Disgusting Anonymous Man/Troll Who Posted Semi-Pornographic Photos of Children on Reddit Website Had His Anonymous Identity Unmasked and Exposed by a Hero Journalist, Adrian Chen, in Gawker Article
(10/12/12) - Watch CNN 10/18/12 Interview Below
Michael Brutsch pioneered and moderated sub-reddits (sub-forums) on Reddit, the social media website -- forums such as "Jailbait" (featured sexualized photos of children), "Creepshots" (featured sexualized photos of kids & women), "Incest," "Photos of Dead Children, " Choke-a-Bitch," and "Rape Jokes." Brutsch stated in a 10/18/12 CNN interview that Reddit actually gave him an AWARD for his work on the "Jailbait" Reddit forum.
Reddit is a powerful social media website, that gets about 3 billion pageviews a month - President Obama hosted a question and answer forum on Reddit in August 2012.
"Creepshots" was a particularly disgusting Reddit forum, where anonymous creepy men posted sexualized photos taken of women and young/underage girls in public without their knowlege or consent.
A 35 year old substitute teacher, a sexual predator named Chistopher Bailey, had taken many sexualized photos of young girls who were students in his classes without their knowledge and posted the photos of the children on the sub-reddit forum called "Creepshots." Bailey was later arrested and charged when the police found naked photos of himself on his cell phone that he had sent to young girls via his cell phone.
Unmasking Reddit’s Violentacrez, The Biggest Troll on the Web
by Adrian Chen
[ Michael Brutsch's] speciality is distributing images of scantily-clad underage girls, but as Violentacrez he also issued an unending fountain of racism, porn, gore, misogyny, incest, and exotic abominations yet unnamed, all on the sprawling online community Reddit. At the time I called Brutsch, his latest project was moderating a new section of Reddit where users posted covert photos they had taken of women in public, usually close-ups of their asses or breasts, for a voyeuristic sexual thrill. It was called "Creepshots." Now Brutsch was the one feeling exposed and it didn't suit him very well. Read More

How to Shut Down Reddit’s CreepShots Once and for All: Name Names
A 25-year-old female Redditor has finally come up with a way to beat Reddit's r/CreepShots posters at their own game: compile their personal information and report them to their bosses and local authorities. So far, it's working. One afternoon in late September, Coweta County Sheriff Investigator Jason Fetner asked Christopher Bailey, a 35-year-old substitute teacher at East Coweta High, to meet with him regarding a school theft. But when Bailey arrived, Fetner told him the real reason for their meeting: he knew that Bailey had been posting photos of his students — "Hot senior girl in one of my classes," read one charming caption — on the subreddit r/CreepShots, some of which had been viewed thousands of times.
Most of Bailey's CreepShots contributions were relatively "innocent" (for example, you couldn't see the senior girl's underwear) and therefore legal, but the content Fetner subsequently found on Bailey's cellphone — including multiple texts and nude photos that he sent to girls as young as 16 — were not, and police are now pursuing charges.
