How to avoid dating an abusive creep
"And I responded back saying 'Thank you.'" But Ashley had a surprise. "I'm score-keeping men's beer league hockey," he says. C., in which an RCMP officer was wrongly identified after an ambush. The video of the confrontation has been posted to the Langley Creep Buster's Facebook page. "The privacy commissioner is looking into a complaint right now, and I'm curious to see what the outcome of that investigation is going to look like." Jacoe's father, Pat Jacoe, is now joining that complaint, contacting the office of the Information and Privacy Commissioner.
A short time later she revealed she was actually 14. CBC News hasn't seen the exchanges, but Jacoe says "I thought I was doing the right thing in making a friend," he says, smiling. "Oh no, but that's not the fact, it's not that it was a guy, it was a 14-year-old child, you wanted to make her your girlfriend, right? Unlike most similar films, in which the accused usually bolt when confronted by the online vigilantes, Jacoe stands motionless. "In the past, I've actually been…pro-vigilante," says the 46-year-old concrete delivery driver.
He was nominated for “Best Daily Excellence” nationally by the CAJ in 2010. His family is now speaking up, saying Jacoe was humiliated and lost a job he loved after being caught up in a sting orchestrated by online groups aiming to catch sexual predators. Interviewed by CBC News a week later, the young man is still shattered. he knew what he was doing was wrong." CBC News showed the video to the province's Public Safety Minister and Solicitor General Mike Morris. I think it's absolutely reprehensible that this kind of thing can happen," said Morris.
In late February, Jacoe decided he wanted his first girlfriend. Almost immediately, Jacoe was approached online by a woman going by the name Ashley. "She messaged me first, saying I was cute and I want to ask you out on date," recalls Jacoe. Because we're going to them whether you take us or not." The Creep Catcher chimes in, saying: "You work in a place full of little girls and children. You're preying on them." Jacoe tries to explain he doesn't deal with children. There's children here…you're going after little girls." Creep Catchers and similar groups have been under fire before, including a case in Surrey, B. "Planet Ice was my home," he says, fighting back tears. He called the ambush "vigilantism" and indicated that he's awaiting the outcome of a privacy complaint from another person "outed" by Surrey Creep Catchers.
But his smile fades as he recalls how Ashley asked him where he worked. The confrontation was caught on camera by two men who had posed as Ashley online. The Creep Buster and Creep Catcher ask if Jacoe has a problem. "I actually liked the idea of people standing up for others. It's really that simple." He says his family has been devastated by the actions of the vigilantes.
He wishes he'd never told her he was a part-time scorekeeper at the Planet Ice arena in Coquitlam, B. His eyes tear-up as he remembers what happened next. "They were harassing me, they were bullying me", he says, his voice shaking. "If they take out one real predator while damaging five other people's entire lives…it's not worth it.
In the meantime, Jacoe says he will monitor his son's online activities from now on to make sure his son doesn't inadvertently get into trouble, or get duped again.
His honours include the 2017 RTDNA national and regional awards for In-depth/Investigative reporting (“The Frontline of Fentanyl”), the 2015 RTDNA regional TV award for Best In-depth/Investigative Reporting (“Casino Money”) and the 2009 Jack Webster award for Best TV Reporting. His father says he has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) that's left him developmentally delayed and mentally challenged, with a pre-teen's understanding of the world. A few hours later, Jacoe says he was told he was fired. CBC News wanted to talk to the men who confronted Jacoe, identified as Douglas Perry of White Rock Creep Catchers and Cody Hunter of Langley Creep Busters on their Facebook pages. Hunter, however, provided this explanation over Facebook messaging: "We did not see anything mentally wrong with Jax(s)on on the catch or in the chats …
"I'm not going to talk to any girls ever again," he says.
The confrontation goes on for five-and-a-half minutes, only ending shortly after Jacoe makes a promise.
They might tell you you are not allowed to hang out with a certain person anymore, or wear a certain shirt, or go to a certain restaurant.

Of course, your partner is allowed to do whatever he or she wants and you are not allowed to question them, but they will control everything you do. You can’t control what happened to them, and you can’t solve it for them.
One day, he is caring and loving and wonderful, and the next he is hateful and raging and mean. You are afraid to talk, or when you do talk you feel like you are never heard, your words are taken out of context, misunderstood, or blatantly ignored. In the beginning of a relationship they might seem like everything you ever wanted….usually this is because they are trying to act like everything you ever wanted. You have no support group and therefore your partner gains more power. He or she might be mean to people they think are “below them” or people who are defenseless, like babies or children.
