Snapchat Gender Swap Filter Helps Student Catch A Paedophile Cop

Snapchat gender filter: Student uses gender-bending Snapchat filter to catch cop Robert Davies allegedly seeking underage hookup Student Uses Snapchat Filter to Catfish Pedophile Looking for Teen Girls on Tinder

A 20-year-old student in San Francisco has used Snapchat's gender-swap filter to pose as a 16-yr-old girl, catfishing a police officer who was allegedly looking to hook up.

Ethan (last name withheld by NBC, out of concern for his safety) used the Snapchat gender-swap filter to make a photo of himself appearing as a girl. The filter replaced his short haircut with long flowing black hair, gave him full lips and flushed cheeks, and added a thick layer of black eyeliner and mascara to his eyes.

Then a man messaged Esther.

Ethan told the station: "I believe he messaged me, 'Are you down to have some fun tonight?' and I made a decision to take advantage of it".

The 40-year-old policeman was arrested after exchanging explicit messages with what he thought was a 16-year-old girl. Eventually, the two took their communication to the instant messaging app Kik, where the tipster claimed to actually be 16, cops said.

His age did not bother the cop, according to the San Jose Police Department.

"I was just looking to get someone", Ethan said. But when Esther asked if he was "still down", he responded with the emoji of a man shrugging.

San Mateo police officer, Robert Davies, was arrested after allegedly trying to meet up with someone he thought was a 16-year-old girl on Tinder.

ICloud for Windows offers less awful PC file access
The iCloud app functions just like the OneDrive in the File Explorer and appear to support OneDrive's Files On-Demand feature. Apple's iCloud app is the same desktop version available online, but it offers a new iCloud experience on Windows 10.

"He just happened to be a cop", he said. He didn't give NBC Bay Area his last name, saying he was anxious about retaliation.

The student turned his phone on airplane mode which stopped alerts to Davies that their conversations were being screenshotted. Then he shared them with police.

Investigators confirmed Davies was arrested last week by San Jose police on suspicion of discussing sexual activity with a minor on social media.

"As soon as we became aware of the investigation by San Jose, the officer was placed on paid administrative leave and remains on administrative leave", the statement reads.

A court clerk told Law&Crime that Davies has no attorney of record.

San Jose police looked into it. According to police, screengrabs of the conversation showed it did not bother the suspect. Davies is an officer with the San Mateo Police Department.

"This alleged conduct, if true, is in no way a reflection of all that we stand for as a Department, and is an affront to the tenets of our department and our profession as a whole", wrote San Mateo Police Chief Susan Manheimer.
