Mom who posed as 11-y-o girl online details journey of exposing child predators

Roo Powell, whose Medium essay, titled "I’m a 37-Year-Old Mom & I Spent Seven Days Online as an 11-Year-Old Girl. Here’s What I Learned," was written using a pseudonym and viewed over 7 million times and translated into four languages, recently detailed the extent of their investigations into the prevalence of pedophiles preying on children online.
In a video released last Thursday, Powell explained that the abuses that occur online mostly go unreported and happen quietly. To gain greater understanding on the depth of the problem, her team created a fictional 15-year-old girl named Libby Connelly, complete with a believable back story and social media identity, and then documented how long it would take for a predator to reach out to her.

Using photo manipulation, the Bark team managed to make Powell look two decades younger and used that image as the fictional girl since they could not use a photo of an actual child. The team coordinated their efforts with law enforcement agencies at every level of government.

"Within the first hour of posting on Libby's accounts seven adult men contacted her," Powell explains in the video. "By the end of nine days, that number was 92."
Amid questions about the legal bar for what is allowed regarding adults interacting with teens online, the Bark graphics team went further, again using high-tech photo manipulation, and transformed the 37-year-old Powell into another fictional character, a pre-pubescent 11-year-old girl named Bailey.

A mere minute and seven seconds after launching this new fake persona, a predator approached online whose profile picture was an explicit image of male genitals. An incoming video call from another predator came within five minutes of going live.

Think of the Press as Democratic Operatives with Bylines and it All Makes Sense - Glenn Reynolds, Instapundit blog

Modern journalism is all about deciding which facts the public shouldn't know because they might reflect badly on Democrats. - Jim Treacher

This is in keeping with the Democrat policies and forceful promotions of lewd and perverted conduct, transgender insanity, cross-dressing lectures to young school children, and calling the murder of innocent unborn babies "choice."  One evil leads to more evils.  One good act leads to more good acts.

No one disgusts and infuriates me more than an adult who preys on children. The death penalty would be too good for them.
The American people will never knowlingly adopt socialism, but under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program until one day America will be a socialist nation without ever knowing how it happened. --Norman Thomas, six-time Socialist Party candidate for U.S. President.
