Thumbs up Interview With BELZEBUB of Legion

SirWilliam
Hello Fellow OPU members,
I'm speaking with BELZEBUB, The Founder and Leader of Legion and INFERNO, how are you BELZ?

BELZ
^I'm doing well Sir William...^

SirWilliam
Good, can you tell us a little about Legion and Inferno?

BELZ
^Sure...Legion iz a group that I started a little over 5 yearz ago in order to wage a war of typez against online pedophilia...Inferno iz the core group of Legion..The elite of Legion so2speak^

BELZ
^We have had different levelz of success depending upon what sitez we are operating in^

SirWilliam
ok, so you been doing this for 5 years?

BELZ
^Yez...Thiz September will be 6 yearz^

SirWilliam :
thats a long time and takes a lot of dedication doesn't it?

BELZ
^Yez it doez William...From myself and from the operative memberz az well^

SirWilliam
I bet, how many members are there in your group that help you?

BELZ
^Well once a Legion member alwayz a Legion member lol...If you count current active memberz and memberz that have gone on to help other organizationz we number in excezz of 500 memberz...Thiz iz not counting outside resourcez that offer uz assistance if the need arizez^

BELZ
^One of the thingz that haz helped uz to be succezzful iz that you never know exactly who iz a Legion member..lol^

SirWilliam
WOW, thats a lot of people working for this cause, course I bet it really isn't enough to handle the problems, is it?

BELZ
^No..For every one we help take off of the street another 50 surface...Itz a much deeper problem than alot of people realize^

BELZ
^We alone have had over 50 ironclad arrestz with a 65% conviction rate^

BELZ
^Itz the other 35% that concern me^

SirWilliam
Thats a pretty impressing number for such a group, so can anyone help? and how do we as a group get involved?

BELZ :
^Well I posted a thread in the new Legion Lounge here at the forumz...At thiz point what that thread statez iz where we will start...^

BELZ
^Different situationz warrant different actionz...We have to deal with it on a case by case basis^

BELZ :
^There are certain criteria and protocol that must be followed and I will explain them in the forum in time^

SirWilliam
ok, well I must say as a Grandfather of 6 grandkids, knowing that there is a group such as this out there is a little comforting, as they will all eventually be on the internet.

BELZ :
^There are other groupz out there az well...Which we welcome and wish there were more of^

BELZ
^We have done what we could to assist thoze groupz whenever the opportunity haz arizen^

SirWilliam
yes indeed, I hear more and more everyday on the news about these types of problems.,

SirWilliam
Can you tell us how involved you actually get in the prosecution of online predators?

BELZ
^The main thing we do iz the collection of the evidence..After we hand that over to the proper individualz itz pretty much out of our handz...^

BELZ
^And I don't want to get into detailz about how exactly we operate becauze, well, you never know who might read thiz..lol^

SirWilliam
Ok, Does law enforcement actually approve and support your actions, in believing the information provided to them?

BELZ
^It sometimez takez a little while if itz a new contact...If itz an established contact then they pretty much know that if we have information itz good information^

BELZ
^I have been schooled so2speak by contactz that we have had on the proper handling of evidence and I pass that on to my memberz^

BELZ
^Following that protocol iz very important^

SirWilliam
oh, good, thats understandable

SirWilliam
So , do you get paid to do this work, or are you self funded?

BELZ
^Legion iz and haz alwayz been self funded...^

BELZ
^And the only pay that I get iz the satisfaction of knowing that I did something to help keep a child safe^

SirWilliam
Great !, so does Legion take donations? and how would someone do that if they would like to help?

BELZ
^We have had donationz in the past and they have alwayz been greatly appreciated..If anyone would be interested in helping, they could pm or email me and I will direct them through the proper channelz^

SirWilliam
Very good, so I must ask you, What made you actually get involved and Start Legion?

BELZ
^Well 1st off I have children...2nd I noticed a steady increase on the web of both children and what I consider "possible targetz"^

BELZ
^But at the time I didnt really see any groupz out there doing what we do...^

BELZ
^There are several now and some have had a good deal of succezz but Legion waz one of the "grandfatherz" of hunter groupz^

BELZ
^We're kind of like the Ozzy Osbourne of pedophile hunting groupz..lol^

SirWilliam
LOL, ok, I know I first met you playing poker, and we sort of exchanged websites, since then we have both exchanged forums so to speak, We (theopu.com) have a forum on 34u.org. Can you tell our members a little about 34u.org?

BELZ
^Yeah...34u.org iz a site that haz dedicated itself to help in the war against pedophilia..It iz chiefly moderated by a friend of mine who uzed to be a Legion member and waz in fact my right hand man in Legion for quite some time^

BELZ
^They have direct linkz to another group like mine called Perverted Justice...^

BELZ
^They have not been around for az long az we have but have more resoursez available to them so have had vast exposure and a great deal of succezz...Which I for 1 greatly admire^

SirWilliam
yes I noticed a few other links there as well, I seen one from close to where I live it was in Lawrenceville Ga.

BELZ
^Thoze are actually casez I believe...That PJ haz been working on^

SirWilliam
yes it was, and a good job at that.

BELZ
^Perverted Justice haz a really decent website where they post alot of what they do^

BELZ
^We had our website within 3 weekz of launch at one point but the financial resourcez fell out^

BELZ
^Az I said, we have alwayz been self-funded...^

BELZ
^And sometimez the "self" didnt have the "fundz"..so2speak..lol^

SirWilliam
thats good to see whats going on out there. kind of keeps you updated. I can understand the funds part, I'm sure it takes a lot of work to bring perverts to justice.

BELZ
^Alot of work, time, and patience^

BELZ
^And sometimez itz eazy to "burn out" on the work you are doing^

SirWilliam
I bet, it is, gets tiring hitting brick walls, Ok just a couple questions on the lighter side, how the heck did you come up with the name BELZEBUB?....LOL

BELZ
^LOL...That in itself IZ an interesting story...^

BELZ
^When I 1st started I would actually have to "possess" a targetz uzer handle in order to ascertain that it waz a valid target...^

BELZ
^While in theze handlez I noticed that besidez groupz like "Daughter Sharing" or Older Men for Younger Boyz" they would 9 out of 10 timez be in a whole bunch of religious groupz^

BELZ
^They didnt fear the law..they didnt fear the site adminz...so I had to think of something that they DID fear...^

BELZ
^...and at the time someone waz already uzing the GOD name at the site..lol^

SirWilliam
AHHHH, now I get it....LOL Was just wondering that, as some have mentioned your name sounded scary...lol

SirWilliam
Specially looking at your profile....lol

BELZ
^The ironic part about it iz that I am a celtic wiccan..We dont even believe in the devil...lol^

BELZ
^And personally Ive alwayz been a big fan of horror moviez and literature...so I guezz if the cloven hoof fitz, wear it..lol^

BELZ
^Other memberz of my group have similar nemez..HELLZ FURY...WARPATH...Etc...^

BELZ
^The thing iz that over the yearz I have BECOME the handle..some people only know me az Belz...^

BELZ
^Some that do know my real name STILL call me Belz..lol..both on and offline^

SirWilliam
Ha, well said ! ok one last question, whats the deal with the Z's??

BELZ
^LOL..I started that in a few sitez yearz ago so that Legion memberz could identify one another when they were under new or different handlez...With me it just stuck...sometimez I even catch myself doing it when Im writing on paper...lmao^

BELZ :
^And if you read it out loud it soundz kind of serpentine az well...lol^

SirWilliam
LOL, now thats funny, confusing but funny

BELZ
^The hornz ^^^ are pretty much the same deal...havent started writing them on paper yet tho...lol^

BELZ
^I'll give it another few yearz...lol^

SirWilliam
LOL,Well I'd like to thank you for your time Belz, and also thank you for doing the work you do to help keep all our kids safe from online predators, is there anything else you would like to say to the OPU members before we close?

BELZ
^Your most welcome...And yeah...I came to the OPU becauze I sort of adopted poker az a "downtime" activity...But I've met some really kewl ppl there and look forward to representing the union with the same honor and integrity that I've tried to instill in my memberz...If Im not out hunting Im at the OPU lol...And if anyone should need my help in any way ,I'm alwayz available^

BELZ
^Oh yeah...and STAY EVIL.....^

SirWilliam

Hi Belzbubz

[COLOR="Navy"]Hi BelZbub^,

My take is that any anti-pedophilia campaign is unconditionally justified, to say the absolute least. I am a father who would have taken the law into my own hands and de-nutted any culprit of abuse against my only son.

This being said, is it just me, or is it that you bring in a sense of the macabre here

OK, perhaps annoyance at style and a certain pic of a guy with an illegal weapon made me overreact. As far as yourself having protected my son from sex predators, I
