Robert O’Block: Parade Shooting

Robert O'Block reports that 12 people were injured during a shooting at a Mother's Day parade today. The police are searching for three suspects. Police were at the parade and saw two to three suspects running away from the scene after the shooting in the 7th ward. Police Chief Serpas reported that the youngest victim is believed to be a 10-year-old girl. It isn't believed that she was seriously hurt and just suffered a graze wound.

There were about 300 that were in attendance at the jazz band parade when the shots were fired. The police aren't sure what triggered the attack. There were 11 people admitted to Interim LSU Public Hospital. It is believed that none of the injuries were life threatening.

The parade was a second-line parade. This type of parade is one in which people form a loose procession and dance down the street as they follow a brass band. Sometimes this type of brand is impromptu and sometimes they are planned. Today's event was organized by a social club called The Original Big 7.

Robert O’Block, ACFEI Founder, Announces Support of Dr. Internet Safety

ROBERT-OBLOCK-ACFEI-IPREDATOR-CYBER-ABUSE

Robert O’Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International, announces his support of Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s introduction to media and the community his pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety. As the largest forensic sciences organization in the world, Dr. O’Block and ACFEI support the mission of Dr. Internet Safety to introduce Internet Safety & iPredator Awareness to children of the Information Age.

New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, is the author of a technological predator construct, iPredator. His construct explores the dynamics of people who engage in criminal, deviant, nefarious and malevolent activities using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Robert O’Block, CEO & founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International. (ACFEI) announces his support of Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, to media and the community. As the largest forensic sciences organization in the world, Dr. O’Block and ACFEI support the mission of Dr. Internet Safety to introduce Internet Safety & iPredator Awareness to children of the Information Age. 

Technological predators and their pediatric victims are Information Revolution dynamics causing devastation to children, teens and young adults throughout all industrialized nations. As stated by Dr. O’Block, “As an educator living at the beginning of the Information Age, I’ve seen both the educational potential of Information and Communications Technology and the damage it’s caused humanity. In addition to ACFEI’s goal of educating the forensics world of iPredators, it is also vital to educate the pediatric mind.” As part of Dr. O’Block’s educational model, he will be introducing ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s construct, iPredator, and his pediatric educational moniker, Dr. Internet Safety.

Children of the 21st century are enamored by the novelty of the Information Revolution. To slow the harm to children and all ICT users, Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media sources (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli).     The moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, educates all age ranges, but specializes in educating parents, children and adolescents using “net lingo”, Information Age developmental psychology and family dynamics.

Child abuse, whether perpetrated by a child or adult, is detrimental to all aspects of their development following them into adulthood. Stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, “Dr. Internet Safety was developed to hinder the natural instincts of children to rebel against adults attempting to teach them a caution. Instead of Dr. Nuccitelli educating the community on iPredator dynamics and tech. predator profiling, Dr. Internet Safety discusses how “uncool” & “immature” it is to tweet or post how fat, ugly or stupid a fellow student is in their Facebook profile.

Topics Dr. Internet Safety is adept at discussing sensitive to a pediatric consumer base include: cyberbullying, cyberstalking, cyber harassment, cybercrime, online sexual predation, internet culture, mobile device safety, ICT relationship dynamics, cyber psychology & regional/national criminal news involving all forms of ICT. A brief definition of iPredator used to create Dr. Internet Safety is as follows:

iPredator:  A child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator.

Dr. Nuccitelli has created a variety of creative templates to use by broadcast & internet radio and online & offline print media including “Ask Dr. Internet Safety”, “Dr. Internet Safety’s Top 10 List” and “On the iCouch with Dr. Internet Safety” geared to a pediatric consumer base. In return for Dr. Internet Safety’s volunteer time and services, Dr. Nuccitelli requests that the host media outlet encourage their readers, listeners or viewers to work within their communities to design strategies reducing victimization of children using Information and Communications Technology.

Robert O’Block | ACFEI Founder Supports Dr. Internet Safety

Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media outlets (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli). Given iPredator Inc.’s mission is to increase awareness of technological predation, Dr. Internet Safety is volunteering his time to educate the public. Although Dr. Internet Safety can educate all age ranges, he specializes in educating parents, educators, children and adolescents.

Robert O’Block Supports Dr. Internet Safety

Children of the 21st century are enamored by the novelty of the Information Revolution. Adults, parents & educators are equally intrigued, as well as, unprepared for this societal paradigm shift centralized around Information and Communications Technology (ICT). To slow the harm to children and all ICT users, Dr. Internet Safety is announcing his availability free to all offline & online media sources (a.k.a., N.Y.S. licensed psychologist & iPredator author, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli).

Given iPredator Inc.’s mission is to increase awareness of technological predation, Dr. Internet Safety is volunteering his time to educate the public. The moniker, Dr. Internet Safety, educates all age ranges, but specializes in educating parents, children and adolescents using “net lingo”, Information Age developmental psychology and family dynamics.

As ICT continues to become a growing thread in the fabric of all nations, the people using these billions of electronic and digital devices must learn to identify, at a minimum, the iPredator. The veil of anonymity afforded to all ICT users is taken for granted when used by those engaging in malevolent and nefarious activities. It is for this reason that diligent caution must be practiced. A brief definition of iPredator is as follows:

iPredatorA child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage.

iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using ICT. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cybercriminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The intermittent to frequent usage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to obtain, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by ICT. These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using ICT in an abstract electronic universe.

Child abuse, whether perpetrated by a child or adult, is detrimental to all aspects of their development following them into adulthood. Stated by Dr. Nuccitelli, “Dr. Internet Safety was developed to hinder the natural instincts of children to rebel against adults attempting to teach them a cautious approach to ICT. Instead of Dr. Nuccitelli educating the community on iPredator dynamics and tech. predator profiling, Dr. Internet Safety discusses how “uncool” & “immature” it is to tweet or post how fat, ugly or stupid a fellow student is in their Facebook profile.

Robert O’Block | Dark Psychology, A Brief Introduction

robert-o'block-acfei-forensics-crime-

robert o’block, forensics, crime dr. robert o’block, dr. o’block, ipredator, forensic sciences, acfei

Robert O’Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International examines a new theoretical criminology construct. Developed by a forensic psychologist & ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, presented for the reader is a new theoretical construct of criminal and deviant behavior called Dark Psychology. Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses.

Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings and perceptions that lead to predatory behavior. Dark Psychology assumes that this production is purposive and has some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time with the remaining 1% of victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by evolutionary science or religious dogma.

The serial arsonist may not assault other people or find gratification from being a human predator as does the serial killer, but he actually experiences joy and elation from his fire setting. In addition to joy, he feels a sense of accomplishment from the devastation he has caused. His episodes of fire setting are extremely dangerous given he can cause harm to others, but the goal of inflicting pain or bodily harm is not his modus operandi.

For the serial arsonist, the big payoff is his sense of pride and distorted perception of accomplishing a brilliant feat of genius. His perverted sense of achievement will at times lead him to become sexually aroused and masturbation ensues. The arsonist's behavior is reprehensible, illegal and dangerous, but typically does not involve premeditated murder. They live within an abyss of infernal obsession.

Although the Necrophile is not causing pain to another person or victimizing others, his actions are extraordinarily bizarre and absent of any sense of logic. The Necrophilia's need for perceived control is so insidious that he actually develops a sexual attraction to a corpse. Imagine what the experience must be for him. He is sexually aroused by a lifeless body that is expressionless and absent of warmth. Most people yearn for connection during sexual intimacy, but the Necrophile does not require this. He becomes aroused by the experience of a total and complete disconnect. Clearly, his mind has entered a very dark realm.

The serial killer is one of the most despotic characters that manifests from the dark side. In films, court cases and news coverage, the serial killer is frequently a subject of intrigue. The essence of this deviant evil echoes a part of the human psyche that only the serial killer himself can realistically experience. Just as an alcoholic craves his next drink or an opiate addict yearns for his next fix, the serial killer becomes addicted to murder.

The serial killer speaks of the gratification and elevated sense of release once his murder has come to fruition. Unlike the Necrophile or serial arsonist, the serial killer's sole endeavor is to extinguish life. For many of these assailants, sexual arousal by torturing their victims is a common theme.

These four examples are illustrations of the extent to which humans will go for the experience of power, pleasure and/or goal attainment. All of the criminal profiles described, involve assailants feeling a sense of gratification from their abusive and/or heinous actions. The reality is that these examples are merely basic profiles of four segments of the population of men and women who participate in criminal, abusive or deviant acts. The extent to which humans will go for sexual gratification, perceived control or financial gain is quite extensive and elaborate.

Before the advent of scientific advancements and the capacity of society to explain deviant human behavior, monsters and demons were the cause of such chaos. Unable to understand how people could commit such atrocities, metaphysical beings were the only logical explanation. Instead of fearing their neighbors, early civilizations concocted legends and tales of demonic beings. Werewolves, Vampires and Ghouls prowled the night stalking their prey.

Although contemporary society deems itself as advanced in its ability to comprehend the potential for humans to commit violent, heinous acts, learning how to reduce and/or prevent bizarre and deadly actions perpetrated by humans remains elusive. Our species is the only group of living organisms that participate in actions antithetical to our survival. Dark Psychology is both the study of criminal & deviant behavior and a conceptual framework for deciphering the potential for evil within all human beings. Dr. Nuccitelli does not claim to have the proverbial "holy grail" of defining deviant human behavior, but rather a framework for inquiry and further investigation.

Ten years ago when Dr. Nuccitelli first became interested in the study of forensic and criminal psychology, he posited that aberrant deviant behaviors were part of a psychiatric illness not yet determined. With the passing of time and research, intrigue followed from the vast array of theories and explanations for why humans maintain a capacity to prey upon other humans.

The idea of Dark Psychology became Dr. Nuccitelli's theoretical exploration, and he began to formalize a set of concepts he believed plausible. The sum of his attempts ended in narrow concepts aimed at trying to explain the psychopath and sexual predator. Six years ago, he experienced his first paradigm shift pertinent to his present theory.

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. Dark Psychology assumes this dark side is also unpredictable. Unpredictable in the understanding of who acts upon these dangerous impulses, and even more unpredictable of the lengths some will go with their sense of mercy completely negated. There are people who rape, murder, torture, and violate without cause or purpose. Dark Psychology speaks to these actions of acting as a predator seeking out human prey without clearly defined purposes. As humans, we are incredibly dangerous to ourselves and every other living creature. The reasons are many and Dark Psychology attempts to explore those dangerous elements.

Robert O’Block | Dark Psychology, Criminality and Deviance

ACFEI-Robert-O'Block-Cyber-Justice

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon others. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans & living creatures. While many restrain or sublimate this tendency, some act upon these impulses. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings and perceptions that lead to predatory behavior.

Dark Psychology assumes that this production is purposive and has some rational, goal-oriented motivation 99% of the time. The remaining 1%, under Dark Psychology, is the brutal victimization of others without purposive intent or reasonably defined by evolutionary science or religious dogma. Presented for the reader are four criminal and deviant profiles along with the introduction of a new theoretical construct of criminal and deviant behavior called Dark Psychology.

The Arsonist is a person with an obsessive preoccupation with fire setting. These individuals often have developmental histories filled with sexual and physical abuse. Common among serial arsonists is the proclivity to be loners, have few peers, and absolutely fascinated by fire and fire setting. Serial arsonists are highly ritualistic and tend to exhibit patterned behaviors as to their methodologies for setting fires.

Preoccupied by fire setting, Arsonists often fantasize & fixate upon how to plan their fire setting episodes. Once their target is set ablaze, some arsonists experience sexual arousal and proceed with masturbation while watching. Despite their pathological and ritualistic patterns, the serial arsonist feels pride in his actions.

Thanatophilia, Necrophilia, and Necrologies all define the same type of disordered person.  These are people, and they do exist, who have a sexual attraction to corpses. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Illnesses by the American Psychiatric Association classifies necrophilia as a paraphilia. A paraphilia is a biomedical term used to describe a person's sexual arousal and preoccupation with objects, situations or individuals that are not part of normative stimulation and may cause distress or serious problems for the person. Hence, a Necrophiles paraphilia is sexual arousal by an object, a deceased person.

Experts who have compiled profiles of Necrophiles indicate they have tremendous difficulty experiencing a capacity for being intimate with others. For these people, sexual intimacy with the dead feels safe and more secure rather than sexual intimacy with a living human. Necrophiles have divulged in interviews feeling a great sense of control when in the company of a corpse. A sense of connection becomes secondary to the primary need for perceived control.

The iPredator is a child, adult or group who engages in psychological and/or physical victimization, theft or disparagement of others. They are motivated by; peer acceptance, malice, spite and criminal or deviant intent using digital technology, telecommunications or mobile devices. iPredators are driven by deviant sexual fantasies, aggressive desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, psychological distortions and personal or monetary gain. iPredators can be any age, either sex and are neither bound by socio-economic status nor racial/national heritage.

Within the next century, iPredators and their acts of theft, violence and abuse will become a global phenomenon and societal epidemic if not squashed. Segments of iPredators include cyber stalkers, cyberbullies, cyber terrorists, cyber criminals, online sexual predators and political/religious fanatics engaged in cyber warfare. Just as Dark Psychology views all criminal/deviant behavior on a continuum of severity and purposive intent, the theory of iPredator follows the same framework, but involves abuse, assault and victimization online in cyberspace.

A serial killer is a true human predator typically defined as someone who murders three or more people over a period of 30 days or greater. Interviews with most serial killers have revealed they experience a “cooling off” period between each murder. The serial killer's cooling off period is a perceptual refractory period whereby they are temporarily satiated with their need to cause pain to others. Criminal psychology experts have hypothesized their motivation for killing is the pursuit for an experience of psychological gratification only achieved via brutality. After they murder, these individuals feel a sense of release combined with egotistical power. The experience for them brings such gratification that they become wanton of feeling the experience of release and gratification once again.

Sexual assault, rape, humiliation and torture are often involved during the course of their murders. Experts at the Federal Bureau of Investigations have outlined other motivations in addition to anger, rage, attention seeking, thrill seeking, and monetary gain. Often, serial killers exhibit similar patterns in their choice of victims, how they murder their targets, and methods for disposal of the body. Criminal experts trained in behavioral analysis concur serial killers have a history of significant emotional, behavioral and social pathology. Although not absolute, serial killers tend to be loners who experience difficulty engaging in functional relationships.

Provided above are four examples of offenders and offender groups who commit abusive and/or violent bizarre acts sharing the common bond of having deep psychological deficits with distorted worldviews. These serious psychiatric and/or personality constructs, which may metastasize throughout their being, defies reason. What is it about these human predators, how do they function and socialize in their day-to-day lives? These brief profiles speak volumes about the dark nature of the human condition. In addition to all sharing mild to severe psychopathology, they all are perceptual loners with deep-seated forces governing their decision-making capacities.

Dark Psychology is the study of the human condition as it relates to the psychological nature of people to prey upon other people motivated by criminal and/or deviant drives that lack purpose and general assumptions of instinctual drives and social sciences theory. All of humanity has this potential to victimize other humans and living creatures. Dark Psychology seeks to understand those thoughts, feelings, perceptions and subjective processing systems that lead to predatory behavior that is antithetical to contemporary understandings of human behavior.

Dark Psychology posits that all humanity has a reservoir of malevolent intent towards others ranging from minimally obtrusive and fleeting thoughts to pure psychopathic deviant behaviors without any cohesive rationality. Dark Psychology encompasses all that makes us who we are in relationship to our dark side. All cultures, all faiths and all humanity have this proverbial cancer.

From the moment we are born to the time of death, there is a side lurking within us all that some have called evil and others have defined as criminal, deviant, and pathological. Dark Psychology introduces a third philosophical construct that views these behaviors different from religious dogmas and contemporary social sciences theories. As Alfred Adler stated, "It is the individual who is not interested in his fellow men who has the greatest difficulties in life and provides the greatest injury to others. It is from among such individuals that all human failures spring."

Stalking & Stalker Typologies

ROBERT-O'BLOCK JUSTICE-CYBER-JUSTICE

The stalker profile involves multiple descriptions, definitions and dimensions. With the advent of the Information and Communications Technology, cyber stalking has gradually grown to become a serious concern for law enforcement and anyone engaged in online activities. Presented is a brief overview of stalker typologies.  

The typologies of stalkers are theoretical descriptions shared by both the cyber and physical stalkers. The goal of victim prevention is to first understand their rationale for acting as a predator and then developing strategies to prevent becomingg a victim. Learning to profile and predict the stalker & cyber stalker greatly reduces the predator’s objective of causing you or your loved ones psychological and physical harm.

Stalking is defined as a behavior wherein a person willfully and repeatedly engages in conduct directed towards another person who, if known by the victim, causes significant concern and fear. The predator that initiates and sustains the stalking behavior(s) may or may not recognize he/she is causing their victim serious alarm, perceptual torment and the unfortunate experience of being terrorized.

Stalking involves one person’s obsessive behavior toward another person. Initially, stalking usually takes the form of annoying, threatening or obscene telephone calls, emails or letters. During this period, the victim views the stalker’s actions as more of a form of harassment as opposed to an escalating dangerous situation. Once the harassment stage has been established, it is during this period the potential victim needs to contact law enforcement. It is also crucial to begin keeping a written log documenting each time the stalker makes contact.

Psychiatrists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals view most stalkers as suffering from a psychiatric illness(s) causing them to be psychotic or delusional. When not deemed as psychotic, stalkers are considered plagued by some type of personality disorder or fueled by unique psychological factors. In the most severe cases, the stalker is defined as a predatory stalker or sociopath.

Whatever the psychological rationale may be, the stalker rarely comprehends the fear he/she is causing the other person. Blinded by his/her motivations to be stalking someone in the first place causes them to lose sight of the fear and terror they are causing. When anger, rage and hostility towards the victim are involved, the stalker is fully aware of the anguish he/she is causing, but feels the victim is deserving of the fear or simply does not care. In 1999, Australian stalking expert, Dr. Paul Mullen, and a group of investigators identified five types of stalkers, which, remains applicable today for stalkers and cyber stalkers and as follows:

I.   Rejected Stalkers: This type of stalker is motivated to pursue their victim in attempt to reverse what they perceive as a wrongful set of circumstances causing a prior divorce, separation or termination of a relationship. These offenders either feel misunderstood hoping to reverse the break up or feel angry and seeking revenge because their attempts at reconciliation with the victim has failed in the past.

II. Resentful Stalkers: This type of stalker can be dangerous given their perceived motivation for stalking. Resentful stalkers are fully aware the victim is cognizant of the stalking, but continues to fulfill a distorted vendetta he/she feels is warranted. Fear and distress experienced by the victim are the goals of this type of stalker. For this type of profile, the stalker believes the victim both deserves and requires being frightened because they have caused them and/or others anguish and distress.

III.     Intimacy Seekers: This type of stalker does not have ill will towards their victim and simply wants to engage in a loving relationship with them. Intimacy seekers view their victims as their soul mate destined to be together at all costs. Within their mind, they believe it is their job and purpose to ensure destiny of a loving relationship is fulfilled. Intimacy seeker stalkers are often the segment of men or women who harass celebrities and public figures. Blinded by their distorted perceptions of a destined love, they lose sight of the distress and fear they’re causing the person they stalk.

IV. Incompetent Suitors: These individuals who fit this profile are stalkers deeply enamored with their victim. Their interest for the victim at times can reach a state of fixation whereby their entire waking life is focused on the endeavor of one day becoming a couple. They tend to lack social, communication or courting skills and may feel entitled that their fantasy of a loving relationship is inevitable. Feeling entitled and/or deserving of a relationship with the victim inspires the stalker to gradually increase their frequency of contact. Although similar to the Intimacy Seeker stalker, incompetent suitors are more gradual in their means and methods of contact.

V.  Predatory Stalkers: Of the five types, the predatory stalker is by far the most dangerous and determined. This type of stalker is motivated by a perverted sexual need. They engage in actively planning an attack and premeditate as the predator how he will go about engaging in a sexual act(s) with his victim. They do not have feelings of love for their victim nor motivated by a belief of predestination. Their fuel to dominate and victimize resembles the sociopath experiencing little to no remorse for the welfare of their victim.

Understanding the types of stalker and what motivates them is the first step in reducing the probability of becoming one of their victims. Unfortunately, many men, women and society in general minimize the stalker profile and mistakenly view these people as “unfortunate souls looking for love.” What people fail to understand is most of these predators engaged in stalking suffer troublesome psychiatric illnesses, psychological issues, or motivated by urges to sexually dominate their victim(s).

Every year in the United States alone, over 1 million women and 370,000 men are stalked. Roughly 80% of women and 65% of men know the identity of their stalker. Regarding stalking activity, more than 66% of stalkers engage in pursuit of their victim at least one time weekly. Cyber stalking and online predators are new dangers since the birth of the Internet twenty years ago. People ranging in age from children to seniors now use the Internet for a multitude of reasons. As millions of people use Information and Communications Technology (ICT), millions more will become victims. The Information Age has created an entirely new breed of stalker called the cyberstalker.

Robert O’Block Announces Commitment

ROBERT-O'BLOCK JUSTICE-CYBER-JUSTICE

Robert O'Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International

Robert O'Block, founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International, announces his commitment to technological predator forensic education. As the largest forensic sciences professional organization in the world, Robert O'Block and ACFEI are introducing information to members and the community relevant to Information Age forensic sciences.   

New York State licensed psychologist and certified forensic consultant, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, is the author of new technological predator constructs he has termed, iPredator & iPredator Bridge. His constructs explore the dynamics of people who engage in criminal, deviant, nefarious and malevolent activities using Information and Communications Technology (ICT). Robert O'Block, CEO & founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI) announces his commitment to technological predator forensic education to members and the community. As the largest forensic sciences professional education organization in the world, Robert O'Block and ACFEI are introducing information to members relevant to Information Age forensic sciences.       

Technological predators and their victims are new dynamics causing devastation across all elements of society. As stated by Robert O'Block, “Many people may not know why I started the American College of Forensic Examiners International. The reason is my belief in justice. Justice for all and the safety of Americans. And now that we live in the Information Age, ACFEI will help educate Americans in the forensic sciences, justice and cyber justice.” As part of Robert O'Block’s educational model, he will be introducing ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s, two theoretical constructs, iPredator and iPredator Bridge. iPredator was published in the 2011 winter issue of the Forensic Examiner with iPredator Bridge being published in their 2012 winter issue. A brief definition of each is as follows:

iPredator:

A child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage. Whether the offender is a cyberbully, cyberstalker, cyber harasser, cyber-criminal, online sexual predator, internet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator.

iPredator Bridge:  iPredator Bridge is a theoretical tenet of iPredator representing the psychological, perceptual & behavioral trajectory of people who use Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to harm others. Similar to the iPredator, they are motivated by personal convictions, greed, power, control, narcissismor psychopathology. Different from the iPredator, they have yet to fully engage in criminal/deviant activities using ICT or use complex perceptual distortions to validate the harm they cause. iPredator Bridge investigates why some people draw near to this nefarious and malevolent realm and either proceed in their maladaptive trajectory or cease and desist.

The iPredator Bridge is a symbolic representation of the approach, route and initial crossing into the realm of the iPredator. In a rudimentary and abstract way, it is posited that cyberspace, ICT and all future technological advancements, related to information technology, is an extension of the mind and the instinctual drives of the collective brain to replicate itself outside a human organism.

Dr. Nuccitelli is honored to have Dr. Robert O'Block and ACFEI support his mission to bring to light the widespread growth of nefarious, criminal and malevolent activities in cyberspace. Vital to understanding the theoretical core of iPredator is Dr. Nuccitelli’s staunch belief that iPredators are variants of classical criminals, deviants and nefarious entities. ICT and the Information Age have created a new dimension leading to an entirely new population of humanity engaged in malevolent, harmful and deceptive practices. ICT and cyberspace are not tools used by the sociopath, deviant, narcissist or classic criminal, but part of a new generation that will be permanent fixtures to humanity for centuries to follow.

The study, exploration and understanding of iPredator is the first step in the humanization of global Information and Communications Technology. By understanding iPredator, humanity walks safely in cyerspace.” Michael Nuccitelli Psy.D., C.F.C. (2012)

Robert O’Block – Six Typologies of iPredator

Robert O'Block founder of the American College of Forensic Examiners International (ACFEI), has committed himself and his organization’s resources to disseminating ACFEI member, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli’s, new technological predator construct termed, iPredator. Robert O'Block | Six Typologies of iPredator

ACFEI-Robert-O'Block-Cyber-Justice

Cyber Bullying, Cyber Harassment, Cyber Stalking, Cyber Crime, Online Sexual Predation & Cyber Terrorism

As the largest forensic sciences professional organization in the world, Robert O'Block and ACFEI have begun introducing information relevant to Information Age forensic science. He hopes his endeavors will one day initiate a national awareness campaign to what he terms, Cyber Justice. Robert O'Block is passionate about helping stop the widespread growth of cyber victimization of children, adults and all ICT users. The definition of iPredator and the six typologies are as follows:        

iPredator: A child, adult or group who, directly or indirectly, engages in exploitation, victimization, stalking, theft or disparagement of others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) iPredators are driven by deviant fantasies, desires for power and control, retribution, religious fanaticism, political reprisal, psychiatric illness, perceptual distortions, peer acceptance or personal and financial gain. iPredators can be any age, either gender and not bound by economic status, race or national heritage. iPredator is a global term used to distinguish anyone who engages in criminal, deviant or abusive behaviors using Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) Whether the offender is a cyberbullycyberstalkercyber harassercyber criminalonline sexual predatorinternet troll or cyber terrorist, they fall within the scope of iPredator. The three criteria used to define an iPredator include:

I. A self-awareness of causing harm to others, directly or indirectly, using ICT. II. The intermittent to frequent usage of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to obtain, exchange and deliver harmful information. III. A general understanding of Cyberstealth used to engage in criminal or deviant activities or to profile, identify, locate, stalk and engage a target.                                                                                                      

Unlike human predators prior to the Information Age, iPredators rely on the multitude of benefits offered by Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) These assistances include exchange of information over long distances, rapidity of information exchanged and the seemingly infinite access to data available. Malevolent in intent, iPredators rely on their capacity to deceive others using Information and Communications Technology (ICT) in an abstract electronic universe.

Although it is assumed all humanity, has residing deep in their psyche, the potential & Dark Psychology for behaving in harmful and malevolent ways they rarely or never activate, ICT and cyberspace offers a direct connection and psychological route to the dark side. Just as ICT and cyberspace is incredibly pro-social and beneficial to humanity, these same technological advancements can lead humanity to diabolical and sinister endeavors.

The typologies & behavioral patterns of iPredator include: Cyber Bullying, Cyber Harassment, Cyber StalkingCyber CrimeOnline Sexual Predation, Internet Defamation, Cyber Deviance, Cyber Deception and Cyber Terrorism. Within this construct, Cyber Harassment is the adult form of Cyber Bullying and used when the perpetrator is an adult.

Vital to understanding the theoretical core of iPredator is the staunch belief that iPredators are variants of classical criminals, deviants and nefarious entities. ICT and the Information Age have created a new dimension leading to an entirely new population of humanity engaged in malevolent, harmful and deceptive practices. ICT and cyberspace are not tools used by the sociopath, deviant, narcissist or classic criminal, but part of a new generation that will be permanent fixtures to humanity for centuries to follow.   

The term, iPredator, is a global construct designed to include any child, adult, business entity or organized group who uses ICT to harm, abuse, steal from, assault or defame other ICT users. Also included in this construct are people who use ICT to benefit from the victimization and harm of others, but are not the principal perpetrators. Prime examples of this iPredator subset are criminals who engage in the sale and profit of child pornography using ICT. As ICT advances and humanity becomes more dependent upon information technology, it is inevitable the typologies of iPredator will expand as well. The 2012 formal definition of iPredator is as follows:

Cyber Stalking: Cyber stalking is defined as the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to stalk, control, manipulate or habitually threaten a child, adult, business or group. Cyber stalking is both a tactic used by an ICT assailant and typology of pathological ICT user. Cyber stalking tactics include false accusations, threats of harm, habitual monitoring, surveillance, implied threats, identity theft, damage to property and gathering information to manipulate and control their target. To meet the criteria of cyber stalking, the information and tactics used must involve a credible or implied physical and psychological threat to the target. An example of physical threat involves bodily harm to the target or their loved ones using ICT. Examples of psychological threats involve using disparagement, humiliation, dis-information dissemination and environmental damage to the target's reputation, credibility or financial status if the target does not acquiesce to the cyber stalker's demands.

Cyber Harassment: Cyber harassment is defined as the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to harass, control, manipulate or habitually disparage a child, adult, business or group without a credible or implied threat of harm. Cyber harassment is a tactic used by an ICT assailant that may or may not be rooted in an attempt to control, dominate or manipulate their target. Although cyber harassment pertains to unrelenting taunting and disparaging information directed at a child, adult, public figure, group or business using ICT, the motivations of the assailant may be rooted in their own pathological drives and motivations devoid of the need to control, dominate or manipulate their target.

Cyber Bullying: Like classic bullying, cyber bullying is harmful, repeated and hostile behavior intended to taunt, deprecate & defame a targeted child. Cyber bullying describes threatening or disparaging information against a target child delivered through Information and Communications Technology (ICT.) Unlike classic bullying, cyber bullying includes a phenomenon called Cyber Bullying by proxy. Cyber bullying by proxy occurs when a cyber bully encourages or persuades others to engage in deprecating and harassing a target child. Cyber bullying by proxy is a dangerous form of cyber bullying because adults may become the accomplices to the cyber bully involved in the harassment and do not know they are dealing with a child or someone they may know. A cyber bully is usually driven by a need for peer acceptance, but may engage in these maladaptive behaviors out of ignorance of the distress they cause a target child, or the most malevolent form, feels minimal remorse for the harm they are inflicting upon the target child.   

Cybercrime: Cybercrime is defined as crimes and criminal activity committed on the Internet using Information and Communications Technology as the tools to target victims. All forms of cybercrime involve both Information and Communications Technology and a targeted victim(s). Cybercrime is segmented into two distinct categories involving the focus of the cyber criminal activities. These activities are focalized on the technology of Information and Communications Technology to achieve the cyber criminal’s aims for personal and financial gain or targeted at the person using the Information and Communications Technology. When the individual is the main target of cybercrime, Information and Communications Technology is the tool rather than the target. These are the crimes, which have existed for centuries in offline societies. Scams, theft and fraud have existed long before the development of information technology. Cyber criminals utilize technological tools that increase their potential pool of victims and make them difficult to identify and apprehend. Cybercrime targets people, property or governments using Information and Communications Technology.

Cyber Terrorism: Cyber Terrorism is defined as the use of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) by iPredators, organized groups and/or terrorist groups to advance their agenda motivated by religious, political and/or philosophical ideologies. Examples of cyber terrorism include 1. The use of ICT to organize and execute attacks against networks, and Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructures. 2. The exchanging of information or making threats electronically. 3. The act of hacking into computer systems. 4. Introducing viruses and malware to vulnerable networks. 5. Defacement of websites and blogs. 6. Denial-of-service attacks 7. Terroristic threats made via electronic communication.

When strategic cyber attacks are motivated for financial gain, these attacks are defined as cybercrime. Cyber terrorism is any premeditated, politically, religious or philosophically motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs and data, which results in violence against non-combatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents. A cyber terrorist attack is designed to cause physical violence or extreme financial harm to the targeted victims or community. According to the U.S. Commission of Critical Infrastructure Protection, cyber terrorist targets include the banking industry, military installations, power plants, air traffic control centers and water systems. The F.B.I. define cyber terrorism as "The premeditated, politically motivated attack against information, computer systems, computer programs and data which result in violence against noncombatant targets by sub-national groups or clandestine agents."   

Online Sexual Predation: The typology of iPredator that is categorized in Online Sexual Predators has a variety of different terms used to describe the same patterns and motivations for their abuse. Online Sexual Predators are defined as adult online users who seek to exploit vulnerable children or adolescents for sexual or other abusive purposes. Online Sexual Predators are sexual predators who use Information and Communications Technology and the Internet to locate, target and victimize minors. Common forums used by Online Sexual Predators to target children include chat rooms, instant messaging or social networking sites for the purpose of flirting with and meeting others for illicit sexual experiences. Online Sexual Predators often are motivated to manipulate or "groom" a minor with the ultimate goal of meeting and engaging in sexual activity, despite knowing they are engaging in illegal activities. In instances where meeting their victims to engage in sexual activities is not the primary objective, Online Sexual Predators also attempt to persuade children and adolescents to participate in some form of online sexual and/or sexually provocative activity motivated by sexual deviance and/or for financial gain engaging in the distribution and sale of child pornography.

Robert O’Block | Hard Work Leads to Success

ACFEI Robert O'Block

Robert O'Block has been working hard since he was a child. At the age of thirteen, while other boys were spending their time playing, O'Block was working at a driving range, where he retrieved golf balls. While other boys did sports, Dr. Robert O'Block was busing restaurant tables. Other children joined clubs; Dr. O'Block worked with nursery stock. He even financed his own Catholic school education by cleaning department store floors.

Dr. O'Block even worked late-nights as a law enforcement dispatcher to pay for his advanced studies in criminology. During his time in the force, he overcame another kind of challenge – an officer and good friend of his was killed while reprimanding a mentally unstable crime suspect. The incident was incredibly traumatic for everyone involved, and Dr. O'Block survived it by putting his energy into supporting local charities. As a way to pay respect to his lost friend, he helped found the Greene County 100 Club in Springfield, Missouri.

Robert O'Block accelerated all of his studies and officially became Doctor O'Block after earning his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, EdS and PhD in only six and a half years, all the while continuing to work full-time as a law enforcement officer. At the young age of twenty-five, O'Block managed to take on the responsibility of assistant professorship at a university and even wrote a textbook about criminal justice. For two years, he tackled the challenging and critical job of educating students.

On top of his teaching responsibilities, O'Block even had to face a sociopolitical battle: he discovered that he was being discriminated against within the school system, and that his teaching evaluations had been altered. While others may have accepted the course of events and not stood up against the system, Dr. O'Block took a stand. He brought the issues to the university’s attention, even though this put his professional reputation, career, and everything else that he had worked for on the line. His commitment to justice caused him to have to overcome another major hurdle as those threatened by the truth of his accusations retaliated by making false allegations against him. He was wrongly accused of plagiarism when in reality, he had only been working to help English as a Second Language students improve their academic work. Meanwhile, his father’s health deteriorated, and Dr. O'Block watched him suffer through diabetes, amputations, and finally, die of cancer.

None of these obstacles, however, were enough to slow Dr. O'Block down. He had triumphed over a modest upbringing, worked hard to put himself through school – earning multiple degrees by a young age – and had made it through the death of a close friend, attacks to his professional and academic career, and even the failing health of his father. None of these struggles had defeated his spirit. In fact, when he recognized a strong need for a particular kind of scientific organization to exist, he set about creating one from scratch. And that – using money from his own personal savings and a spare bedroom – is how Dr. O'Block took his first step to forming what would eventually blossom into the American College of Forensic Examiners International. This is the largest and fastest-growing forensic association in the world today.

Robert O’Block | ACFEI Fulfills Forensic Sciences Educational Needs

ACFEI Robert O'Block

Late in the 20th century, the field of forensic science exploded with new discoveries due to the advancements in technology and specialization. While numerous forensic associations were in place, many were unprepared for the abundant developments that were taking place in the field. In 1992, however, the American College of Forensic Examiners Institute (ACFEI) formed and filled the desperate need in forensic science. Beginning as a brainchild, ACFEI founder Dr. Robert O'Block was discouraged that existing forensic associations operated like closed, secret societies. He realized that many well-qualified professionals and their ideas were being shut out. In response to the problem, Dr. O'Block started his own association which was catered to handwriting experts, but soon other experts joined from areas such as psychology and physiology. Growing at an incredible speed, Dr. O'Block's brainchild is now one of the world's largest associations of forensic professionals.

20,000 members strong, ACFEI and its sister associations have experts that represent fields of forensic science, homeland security, psychotherapy, integrative medicine, and behavioral science. ACFEI provides an impressive number of certifications including, but not limited to, the following: Certified Forensic Consultant, Certified Forensic Accountant, Certified Medical Investigator, Certified Forensic Nurse, Certified Forensic Physician, Certified in Disaster Preparedness, Certified Master Forensic Social Worker, and the list goes on and on. ACFEI also publishes the world's foremost peer-reviewed forensic science journal, The Forensic Examiner, which is circulated worldwide and is on bookshelves nationwide. In addition to this printed magazine, the organization offers online, interactive content such as multimedia forensics courses provided by members with a goal to advance the frontiers of the field.

Dr. O'Block had a vision to bring the work of qualified professionals, who were previously being disregarded by forensic organizations, to the community of fellow enthusiasts in the field. Such has been accomplished and Dr. O'Block's efforts have been widely recognized and appreciated by the world's top forensic experts. Many of these experts have shown their support for the association by serving as keynote speakers at the national ACFEI meetings. Some of these renowned guests include famed defense attorney Barry Scheck, FBI criminal profiler John Douglas, forensic pathologist Dr. Cyril Wecht, and the first Secretary of Homeland Security, Tom Ridge. The increasing success of the organization is awarded each year with the respect of professionals in forensic science and the pleasure of giving such experts an outlet in which to present their work.

Dr. O'Block has encouraged others in the field with their own apparitions, and numerous organizations have been created as a result of the development of ACFEI. Some of these associations include the American Psychotherapy Association, which arose from ACFEI members specializing in forensic psychology; The American Board for Certification in Homeland Security, formed in response to the attacks of 9/11; the International College of the Behavioral Sciences, founded by Dr. O'Block; and The American Association of Integrative Medicine, which was cofounded by Dr. O'Block. ACFEI and its various sister organizations have filled the void once present in the forensic science field and answered a calling that previous associations were unable to fulfill.
