I was contacted Sunday by the mother of one of our younger Youth Safe Haven members, who asked me to share what happened with her son with all of you. Thankfully the father was with his son, saw this happened, and it was reported, and an arrest was made.
It's pretty sad when kids cannot go to a baseball game and use the bathroom without having to worry about things like this going on, but it should remind all of you, be aware of who is around you, pay attention to what people are doing that are close to you.


CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A 37-year-old convicted sex offender has been charged with trying to take pictures of a 12-year-old boy Saturday in a Wrigley Field bathroom.
About 3:35 p.m., the boy was in the bathroom when his father saw the man trying to take pictures of the boy, according to Chicago Police. The father told security and the man was taken into custody.
The Illinois Sex Offender registry identified him as Nicholas Gregor, formerly of Glendale Heights, who pleaded guilty in 2011 to child pornography and illegal taping of minors, and was sentenced to six months in jail.
He was arrested for filming a 14-year-old boy in a bathroom in St. Charles in 2010. After his arrest, police found hundreds of videos of child pornography on his home computer in Lombard, DuPage County prosecutors said at his trial.

Damn. That's scary and if someone ever takes a picture of me in the bathroom... I would totally kick his ass in an instant. Evil or Very Mad

That is what I like about our rec center, they got seperate restrooms for adults and kids,
There are way too many creeps out there, and it seems that if this guy was in trouble before for doing this sort of thing he did not learn his lesson and needs to go to prison.

I feel really bad about this, because this like happened to one of us, meaning one of us at Youth Safe Haven.
I am glad his dad was there with him too, because if he had been alone and not noticed it,  this guy might have recorded him for quite a while and uploaded it on the Internet, or posted it in some of those sites that pedo's hang out in,.

Unfortunately we live in a society where we have adults that are sexually attracted to children, and will use whatever means is at their disposal to supplement that attraction.
By making yourself aware that these people are out there and are from all walks of life, and paying closer attention to your surroundings while out in public, may alert you if something does not appear right to you, or you get an uneasy feeling about how a particular adult is acting around you, or talking to you.

Never hesitate to pay attention to that little voice in your head that says to you "something is not right here".

I will be in high school this coming school, and even now, if I go to a large stadium or someplace in a public bathroom I will never go in there alone, it's either with a buddy, or one of my older brothers.

I am so sorry this happened to a member of Youth Safe Haven, but I am glad the person who did this is now in jail.

Sickos, Like The One In This Story Make Interacting Among Older & Younger Peeps More Strained...!

Glad He Was Caught & Hopefully This Time, He'll Get Counseling, For His Illness...!

Just Incarcerating Peeps Like This Does Little To Discourage Their Actions...!

Sometimes They Come Out Worse, Being Exposed to Similar Minded  Inmates...!

When Treated, There's A Much Better Chance He Won't Have a Relapse !

But Silver you and people like Eeenie Buns, and Ryan, are the good guys, so I think it is important that good guys keep hanging out like here with us younger guys just we keep understanding that as many bad people are out there that would take advantage of kids, there are people like you guys here that would help us if we needed it,.

I have been to Wrigley a lot with my dad and Uncle's and never had any problem in the bathroom, but there is usually a ton of people in there. It bothered me when I read this and I never thought about any adult man watching me in there, I usually go in, do what I have to do and leave. Now though, Iwill kinda keep a closer watch on anyone that is older and try to use a urinal that is father down the line.

Sad that kids have to worry about something so simple as using a public bathroom that some perverted asshole is going to try something with them.
Keep alert as everyone says!!
