Don’t Get Jacked on “Jack’d” (The Irony?)

15x21cm_Jackd-412x320oh…
find “him” now all right.
“him” being a violent jackal out for blood and that wallet.
an f-bi wanted to update the foxhole on another hook up app story.
this time its on “jack‘d”.
the irony.
the story was found via atlanta q journal

Atlanta police arrested a 19-year-old man who is accused of targeting gay men through the cruising app Jack’d, linking him to at least three violent robberies and kidnappings that included shooting at one victim and beating another. 

Davonte Hinson, 19, remains in the Fulton County Jail facing 15 charges, including armed robbery, kidnapping, aggravated assault, hijacking, identity theft, false imprisonment and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. The charges are related to three armed robberies during a week in late June in which Hinson allegedly targeted gay men he met on Jack’d. 

Using the name “Charles Holder,” Hinson would allegedly arrange to hookup with his victims in southwest Atlanta. When they arrived, he would meet them on University Avenue and ask the victims to drive a few blocks away so he could buy marijuana, according to incident reports from the Atlanta Police Department. When they did, a second person – and in one case, a third accomplice – would approach the vehicle, pull a gun and the men would rob the victim. 

Hinson and the other men would also allegedly demand at gunpoint that the victim provide the PIN to their debit card. One of the men would leave – in two cases, taking the victim’s car – to drive to an ATM to steal the victim’s cash while the other would hold the victim, according to police reports.

Project Q Atlanta first reported one of the robberies on Thursday. A second victim came forward on Friday. Jeremy Nealey, 39, says he met Hinson on Jack’d and when he arrived to meet him about 3 a.m. on June 28, Hinson and another man allegedly robbed him.

“When we got there and parked, something was not right. But it was too late. The next thing I knew, there was a gun in my face and nothing I could do at that point,” Nealey says. “They took me out of the car and took me behind the building.”

Nealey says Hinson took his debit card and Toyota Prius and drove to a nearby Chevron on Pryor Street to withdraw cash. The two robbers were coordinating using cellphones. When the card didn’t work there or at a second convenience store, the robbers grew agitated, according to an incident report. Nealey says his bank noticed the multiple attempts to withdraw cash and shut down his card to prevent fraud.

“Mr. Nealey stated that the subject kept telling the gunman that the PIN was not working and then the gunman would press the gun harder against his head threatening him to give him the correct number,” according to an incident report. 

Nealey says he was held with a gun to his head for about 20 minutes. But when Hinson called the second man again, his assailant lowered the gun as he answered the phone. Nealey bolted. 

“The guy lowered his gun when he answered the phone that time. I ran all the way from the intersection of University and Ira Street all the way to the Chevron on Pryor Street. I ran straight to a paramedic and they radioed the police for me,” Nealey says.

The men stole Nealey’s phone, wallet and Prius, which police recovered in the area a short time later.

Hinson allegedly started his Jack’d crime spree on June 23 when he robbed Kevin Dean. Hinson and two other men took $600 from Dean’s checking account after stealing his debit card and forcing him at gunpoint to provide his PIN. The men let Dean leave after the robbery but shot at his car as he fled. Police found a bullet lodged in a door of his car.

Two days later, Hinson and two other men – both armed with guns – allegedly robbed a 35-year-old Tennessee man who meet Hinson on Jack’d. When one of the armed assailants ordered the man out of his, the victim fled, according to an incident report. But Hinson and the other two men caught him and then beat him.

“They proceeded to attack the male by hitting him with a gun on his back, and continually punching the man,” according to the incident report. 

The men also ripped the victim’s pants and stole his wallet, driver’s license, credit cards and $50 before they fled.

Hinson’s alleged Jack’d crime spree came to an end days later. He was identified in video surveillance as a suspect in a carjacking. And on July 4, the Atlanta police officer who responded to Nealey’s robbery spotted Hinson walking along Garibaldi Street wearing the same clothes he wore in the Jack’d robberies. He was quickly arrested. On July 7, the Tennessee man identified Hinson in a photo line-up, according to police. 

Nealey says he was impressed with the response by Atlanta police.

“APD was really, really great in the way they handled this. They were sensitive about what happened to me and they weren’t dismissive. They responded fast and they genuinely seemed to care about what was happening. I got a great response out of APD,” Nealey says.

He also expressed relief that an arrest has been made in the string of robberies.

“I’m ecstatic that they caught they guy. I am very happy that it happened. I was upset to learn other people were involved and that they targeted a specific set of the gay population,” Nealey says.

A spokesperson for the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office says a trial date for Hinson has not been set.

GxImo06i could go on and on,
but i won’t.
so i’ll the foxhole this question:

What precautions can you take to be safe on a hook up app?

…because lets face it,
this is the only way some of us can get fucked/fuck.
so:

go half on a room?
meet at the police station?
get their social security number?

…what?
that story was scary AF.
who wants to deal with that when you trying to get some ass?
i know the victims had blue balls central.
what a way to fuck up the vibe.

tumblr_ny6hymWez51qm6oc3o1_500i thought about something while reading this story.
they say pussy is the downfall of straight wolves.
how many wolves in history,
and good tv,
have lost it all over some pussy?
most of the time it was pussy attached to a clear red flag.
in the gay community,
all we have is the “hook up app”.
more than likely,
it is used for quick sex.
the common theme in the gay community is “fucking”.
everyone is fucking or trying to fuck someone.
that leaves out trying to get to know someone’s true character.
a clever screen name,
or a nice bawdy,
isn’t always the best screening process.
is sex fucking us all up?
or is it the choices we make in regards to finding sex?
these days its easy to find something quick with no effort,
but  i had to wonder…

Can hook up apps be the down fall for most gays?

lowkey: i’ve come to the conclusion my wolf,
either “mister right” or “mister right now”,
is not on a hook up app.
sigh?

  1. Reading this remind me of the scam where the lonely woman flirts with the guy in the bar of the hotel then take him to her hotel room and she say she’ll go to the bathroom to “freshen” up o is on top of him getting ready. Then her “husband” slam the door with a gun, threaten to kill them and the victim runs out, forgetting his pants and wallets. Well I feel like that what Jackd is now.

  2. Never have your wallet on you when you meet someone! Hide it in the car or whatever but it should not be on you!

    You don’t meet someone after 3 am, especially in a hood you’re not familiar with.

    Don’t go on weed pickups AT ALL. Of course it’s a setup if you do.

    One guy tried to get me the to drive into an ally when I was young to get weed but I’ve NEVER been gullible or stupid. I said hell no.

    Finally, I’m no ones chauffeur! If you don’t have a ride, you cannot apply! You don’t have a ride or a place then I know you have nothing to lose and everything to gain when you see me in my 2015 with an iPhone 6.

    If I ever went to their house, no wallet. Car alarm
    On and tracker on iPhone on. I would never sit where they wanted to avoid any cameras they may have on.

      1. Thing is you need an ID for hotel rooms. Of course you can find cheap hourly rooms but those seedy places leave you open for blackmail because your ID will always be on file.

  3. Jay…better to go that route that to be jumped and/or have a gun shoved in your face. Not to say that it can’t happen in the motel/hotel room either. But the best bet is to set up the location yourself. If they refuse, then you know something is up. If you can afford a hotel room, that would probably be the best route. I know a guy that met someone off Backpage and the guy wanted to meet him at a motel near JFK. He got there earlier than planned because he wasn’t familiar with the area, and happened to see three guys go into the room where he was supposed to meet the guy. He got out of there fast. He said the dude called him asking him where he was and he told him that he couldn’t make it because of car trouble. The dude offered to pick him up but he declined, and he said the dude proceeded to call him all kinds of names so he hung up.
    Crazy!

    1. I know guys who rob people who setup hotel rooms.

      It’s actually quite common but guys rarely report it. The guy I know is illegal anyway so good luck finding him.

      Always get there earlier than you tell them! That’s another one!

  4. Too many horror stories I’ve heard connected with these hook up apps, I know a couple that have ended in death. No promise of dick is worth your life.

  5. I always say you need you to run with some grimey dudes to really learn their hustles and how they think.

    I’ve talked to people that rob gay dudes, escorts, and just plain thugs and it was an invaluable experience to learn how they think so you don’t fall into those traps.

    Felt like I was undercover lol

  6. Unfortunately, this is what social media, in this respect, has become–a vehicle for crime. But as was alluded to in one of the posts, why on earth would you allow yourself, after hours, to meet up with a youngian at 3am in the morning? You are asking for trouble, especially when in an area that you are clearly unfamiliar with, in terms of its surroundings. “The Freaks Come out at Night,” and in some cases aren’t looking to fuck or get fucked as opposed to just Fucking You Up and taking your possessions, including your Life.

  7. Never have, and never will make a profile for any of those apps. Heard way too much about them before I was even curious about what it was lol.
    I’m good.

  8. What precautions can you take to be safe on a hookup app?
    Best precaution is to press the [uninstall] button.

    Find you a local tearoom and be happy about it!
    They won’t rob you there . . .

  9. I know I’m late with this but I’ve used Jack’d and Grindr. Both have their set of low lives. However, it’s been my experience that most of the degenerates and thugs cling to jack’d. I now use Scruff where it’s mostly decent human beings. Jack’d attracts the most low life trash of any gay app out there. End of story.

"off topic" and other nonsense gets sent to my spam folder. other than that, play nice and let's discuss!
