A video of what appears to be a trans woman caught by a civilian Colorado group in the act of allegedly attempting to hook up with a 13-year-old girl she met on the internet has gone viral on several social media platforms, with many calling — in no uncertain terms — for an end to pedophilia in an era that has increasingly normalized the sexualization of children and the perversity of so-called “Minor-Attracted People,” or “MAPs.”

In the video, Thomas Fellows, head of the civilian group, Colorado Ped Patrol, can be heard confronting a tattooed trans woman as she tries to enter a McDonald’s restaurant.
After Fellows introduces himself, he explains that his group monitors the internet for “adults lurking for minors.”
The accused maintained that, although she was talking online with a 13-year-old, she wasn’t looking for a minor.
“I was going to take her shopping,” the woman insists. “I never said anything else.”
When Fellows asks if they talked about kissing, the woman replies, “Kissing. There’s nothing wrong with that.”
Things quickly went downhill from there, with Fellows vowing to call the police if she lies to him.
The woman admits she brought a “spinner” as a gift for her “date,” but says she forgot it. “Kids like spinners, don’t they?” she asks.
The confrontation intensified as Fellows accused the woman of telling the girl online that she would “teach her to have sex.” He offers to read the woman a transcript of her conversation with the girl, who was clearly an adult posing as a potential victim to flush would-be predators out.
“Do you want me to read it to you?” he asks.
“I know what I said!” the person shoots back. “I said I could teach her, but I didn’t say I was.”
When Fellows again threatens to call the police, she answers, “Why? I didn’t do anything!”
The edited video then cuts to Fellows and the woman facing off. Fellows tells her to “back the f**k up” and for a moment, it appears the confrontation will come to blows.
“Do not come and get in my face,” Fellows yells. “I will knock you the f**k out.”
“You’re here to hurt our f**king children,” he shouts.
“No I’m not!” she screams back.
“The f**k you’re not!” Fellows bellows back. “You are f**king 61 years old!”
The clip cuts again, and the woman admits the site she was on when she encountered the girl was for “dating.”
“There’s no law against” meeting a child, the woman argues.
She contends the child would have to “force” her to do anything illegal.
“Are you f**king insane?” Fellows demands to know.
In the second video posted, Fellows reads back to the woman her own words, asking the young girl to go into the bathroom and take inappropriate photos of herself.

After the two go back and forth over her offer to teach the girl how to have sex in a truck, the woman explains that “150 years ago, 13 was nothing.”
“The only reason it’s changed is because of Puritans and the church,” she says. “That’s all.”
Eventually, police officers arrive on the scene and take the predator away.
It’s all in a day’s work for the Colorado Ped Patrol, whose YouTube channel boasts 102,000 subscribers and has garnered more than 16 million views. The group’s sting operations have led to arrests and convictions in the past.
But that doesn’t mean the police are supportive of their work.
Following a 2021 bust they made in Colorado Springs, CSPD informed the group that they had succeeded in compromising any investigation the police may have previously had, KRDO reported at the time.
CSPD lieutenant James Sokolik called groups like Colorado Ped Patrol “dangerous.”
“If you have contacted somebody who is now fearful they are going to be held responsible for a criminal act, there is that potential you could get hurt,” he said last year. Besides, he noted, as Fellow and other members of the Colorado Ped Patrol aren’t trained police investigators, it is unlikely that their videos would hold up in court.
But that hasn’t stopped users online from cheering the citizen group on.
“Who are these Heroes that are finding these Pedos,” asked one user on Twitter. “I Thank Them very Much.”
Who are these Heroes that are finding these Pedos. I Thank Them very Much.

Others were not quite as polite, as Twitter made its thoughts about pedophilia perfectly clear for all to see.
Sick bastards are emboldened in these times.
Decisions have consequences.

God bless these people, they’re doing amazing work and I’m grateful they’re shining a light on this kind of horror. Kids need to be shielded from people like this.

This literally gives me chills. My God, how many more of them are out there that don’t get caught? Good job, guys. Thank you.
