Symbol For Pedophiles Featured On Children’s Toy
( 4UMF NEWS ) Symbol For Pedophiles Featured On Children's Toy:
A disgusting symbol likely meant for pedophiles was discovered on a children's toy in Florida.
Local mom Nicole O'Kelly recently noticed the toy she purchased at a Tampa Bay Monster Jam for her daughter featured a sick symbol meant to lure pedophiles.
The heart-like symbol was located on a pink plush Jeep sold at the event and the icon reportedly means the child is ready to be traded for sex, according to WFLA-TV.
"I'm absolutely sick," O'Kelly told the station. "I bought this for my 2-year-old little girl. This toy was made for little girls. I wanted answers."
The toy itself was distributed from a company near the event called Feld, Inc. of Tampa Bay. A Feld, Inc. spokesperson said the company had no idea about the symbol and were shocked to learn of its meaning.
Feld, Inc. has stopped selling the item, but the original creator of the toy is unclear.
"Clearly we're in the business with providing high quality family entertainment. This was really obscure," said Stephen Payne.
"Until yesterday, I had no idea there was an underlying meaning of these symbols and the deplorable behavior. We just don't know if a crime was committed here," Payne added. "We just want to make sure it doesn't happen again.
Detective Anthony Bassone of the Pasco County Sheriff's Office told Snopes.com that the symbol did resemble a similar symbol that the FBI released in 2007, which is a common application for pedophiles.
The symbols are used by pedophiles to denote their own preferences rather than mark children as potential victims, according to the FBI documents obtained by WikiLeaks.
"The GirlLover logo (GLogo) depicted below is a small heart surrounded by a larger heart, which symbolizes a relationship between an adult male or female and minor girl," the documents read.
Regardless, parents are still up in arms over why the symbol appeared on a toy to begin with.
Those who attended the event, which was held in January, are being asked to contact Pasco County detectives.
