Unsolved crimes are about to be a thing of the past.. not quite

We've blogged regularly about Robbie Thomas falsely claiming to support charities and non-profit organizations but this one is a little different.  Robbie actually has found a person who will allow him to use her non-profit organization to suggest legitimacy of his con game.

Jennifer Romero is the founder of an organization called "Mothers of Murdered Youth" and is the mother of a murder victim.  Her 13 year old child was killed in a drive-by shooting.  My heart goes out to her.  This site is about protecting victims from further abuse by psychics - not about faulting people who accept the assistance of the liars and cheats.  We can completely understand why it is that families of lost loved ones will reach out for help - any kind of help.  For some, hope, it seems, is all they have.  Many families feel that not enough is being done to solve their cases and accept any offers of help. 

The problem here is that Jennifer is not about to get help.  She is about to be (and currently is being) abused.  Robbie Thomas is not psychic and has absolutely no legitimate skills that will provide any relevant information that may assist in solving crimes. 

If Robbie Thomas was truly a "supporter" of Mothers of Murdered Youth and he can solve crimes, why doesn't he simply solve the crimes?  That'd be real support.  He can't - that's why he doesn't.  He isn't psychic - he's lying.

And, doesn't it seem odd that Robbie Thomas of Sarnia, Ontario would be supporting a small-time non-profit in Colorado and not a local organization?  It isn't odd when you consider that Robbie's previous attempts to abuse (err... use) local groups, to provide himself an appearance of legitimacy, has resulted in emails and letters demanding that he remove their names and logos from his site.  Legitimate organizations distance themselves from outright liars and frauds or they stop being legitimate organizations.

SarniaSkeptic: Of Course Psychics Aren't Self Serving

As some of you may be aware, SarniaSkeptic is a regular contributor to the site.  He was one of the driving forces that lead to the creation of this site.  Recently he posted an entry that I think is fitting for the site (but since he didn't crosspost it, I'm not going to copy it here and add a few other links) - take a look at:

SarniaSkeptic: Of course psychics aren't self serving, that's why I love them

It is important to remember that Robbie Thomas isn't the only 'psychic' who purports to have abilities that can be used to solve crimes and other miraculous things - he's not even the only one in Sarnia.  In Sarnia, they are lucky to have another 'psychic' that has preyed on families that have been victimized by violent crimes.  Darin James (Darin Scheiding) ( / is another non-psychic that needs to adjust his ways.

And the other 'psychic' listed in the first link, is Mary Demitro/Mary Young
