|Alex Rosen, Houston's (alleged for now)|
town drunk and vigilante punk
Indeed, the teenagers running this group make a few racist comments, and the names of some of the videos have racist underones; one video featuring a sting on an Asian guy was labeled "Ninja Predator" and labeled the victim's walk away from the group as a "WOK of shame." Another video of a Hispanic man is labeled "Vaquero Predator." They're also noted for targeting people primarily in the LBGTQ community.
Unfortunately, the Houston news media is hyping up this group by giving them coverage.
Apparently, this group was already banned once by Youtube but has a second Youtube account. The founder of this group, 19-year-old Alex Rosen, was recently arrested for DUI. So much for his "dream of becoming a cop."
Also, it was reported Alex was once charged with assault but the charges were removed from his criminal record. Obviously, there would be no way to confirm this as the record is not available, but the DUI arrest is available online.
"Predator Poachers" publicly shame adults accused of trying to prey on young kids

A group of teens is shaming grown men, who they accuse of trying to meet up with young boys.
The group of Houston based teens, calls themselves the “Predator Poachers”. So far, they have dozens of videos on YouTube that expose possible child predators to a form of social media shaming.
"We want to put these people on blast,” says Alex, a 19-year-old from Predator Poachers. “Being a predator slash pedophile, that's like one of the worst crimes you can commit."
We had to blur the men being shamed in the videos, because they haven’t been arrested, or officially charged by police. However, all of them are accused of thinking they were meeting with young boys they messaged through online dating apps.
“We don’t need high tech forensic evidence to find who’s a predator,” said Alex. “All we have to do is say we’re 13, and see who takes the bait.”
After a series of disgusting messages, and even phone calls, Alex then confronts these possible predators in public.
“I do this voice on the phone, to convince them I’m young,” said Alex.
Their most recent video was recorded inside a San Antonio Walmart.
"I meet in the back of Walmart on purpose,” said Alex. “If they want to walk out of Walmart, it gives me a nice 3-minute window to shame the cc&#$ out of them."
So far, the so called “Predator Poachers” have gotten 4 possible predators fired from jobs. However, more than twenty people in total, have been shamed through online videos for the world to see.
In a few years, Alex hopes to work as a police officer. Until then, he hopes this vigilante work helps keep children safe.
"I think shaming teaches them a lesson,” said Alex.
Local police don’t recommend this form of public shaming. If you suspect someone of being a child predator, call authorities right away.
