Dad catches 21-year-old photographing boys in mall bathroom
WKRN-TV ^ | July 29, 2013

Posted on 07/29/2013 3:31:36 PM PDT by SLB

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A 21-year-old was arrested at the Opry Mills Mall after getting caught recording a young boy in the bathroom.

Police responded to the food court area of the mall on Sunday in reference to a call about obscene behavior.

The victim, a 10-year-old boy, was using a public restroom and needed his father to retrieve some toilet paper. As the boy began to wipe himself, the father observed a hand holding a cell phone over the wall of his son's stall taking photographs.

The father confronted the suspect, later identified as Gerrit Greiert, who tried to leave the area.

However, as he was leaving, he began accessing the photographs, so the victim's father detained him and confiscated the cell phone until authorities arrived.

Once in police custody, Greiert admitted to taking photographs in the restroom and consented to a search of his cell phone.

Police found several photos of two male juveniles, in which their private areas were visibly exposed.

Greiert was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

His bond was set at $100,000.

Greiert is due in court August 1.

I would have simply beaten the crap out of him. Dragged him out in the middle of the mall and yelled at the top of my lungs that he was a pervert.

That works better than the criminal justice system and happens before the victims and perpetrators die of old age.

I would do the same unfortunately that is not smart and can
backfire on you by someone, a witness, with the opposite values(quite a few: gay values) calling the police. Then justice will be delivered to both of you and a possible civil lawsuit for going beyond a ‘citizens arrest’. Messed up world, we live in.

The days of beating the tar out of someone instead of calling the police can backfire heavily.

Why do all of you pedophobes have to hate on this guy?

He's just exercising his civil right to his own sexual preference.

( adding an explicit "/sarc" tag, just in case it isn't completely obvious )

Just you wait, they will punish the dad, because in today’s America the pervert is protected.

Should have just grabbed his arm and pulled downward rapidly....

Pulled hard and fast enough to either dislocate or break this pervert’s arm.

Try having him explain how his arm got broken....

I might’ve gone further. To the point where, within a day or so there would be a makeshift memorial placed where the perv breathed his last. Then there would be candlelight vigils and that mall would be swarming with greif counsellors.

Horrible story. Compounded by horrible journalism.

Leave it to a TV news source to write this..... “The victim, a 10-year-old boy, was using a public restroom and needed his father to retrieve some toilet paper. As the boy began to wipe himself...”

Am I the only one who is repulsed not only by the deviant sex act, but also by idiotic writing skills?

“The days of beating the tar out of someone instead of calling the police can backfire heavily.”.

They have to catch you first. Once the perps laying on the floor all smashed in and you are long gone, let them first find you and then prove who did him in.

Get the job done quickly and then get out of Dodge.

It is getting to the point where the law is going to be on the side of the perp 100% and vigilante justice will be the only justice.

I give the father credit for having more patience, tollerance and grace than I likely would have had. Of course, it is easier to explain to the boy, why the police came rather than why his father went ‘medieval’ on the 21 year old!

San Diego has a large queer community. The current DA is a raging lesbian. The last Republican mayoral candidate to run against perverted mayor Bob Filner was gay. As if that weren’t sickening enough, the city hosts a queer “pride” parade each year so that the gays can take to the streets what they do “in the privacy of their own bedrooms”. I try to spend as little money in that city as possible preferring instead to spend in outer lying cities that are predominately conservative.

Not really, such deviants have always been there, since ancient times. What has changed is today, people don’t shrug it off. Though I agree with other posters that the perv was remarkably lucky not to have seven bells beaten out of him before the police arrive, and another seven bells beaten out of him after he was in custody.

I think my favorite such police story was two cops who had arrested a child rapist. To get to the police station they had to drive on a road twisting and turning down a steep cliff. One cop sat in the back and shoved the suspect out of his side of the car. Then they would drive down to the next cut, pick him up, and shove him down the next cut. By the time they had reached the bottom, the perp had fallen the better part of 300 feet, 50 feet at a time.

He was somewhat the worse for wear.

Sounds like the mall needed to have a big sale on ass-kickin'.

In my experience, it is not unusual to see a Mother bringing her 12 year old son into a Walmart ladie’s room. According to the Moms, the sons had bad things happen going into men’s room alone.
