To shut down, or to not not shut down this website?

Approximately 8.5 years ago, a 32-year career criminal by the name of Grant Norman King, who had dramatically harmed the lives of 69 other fraud victims causing approximately $3.5 million dollars in fraud, chose to do the same to victim # 70 (me).

I was to be his last victim, and the consequences of King choosing me as a target proved (and still prove) to be a disaster for him.

So, what to do now?

After 8.5 years, King has experienced extensive media exposure, a raft of criminal convictions (including a jail sentence), an indefinite bankruptcy, and in indefinite restraining order.

There has also been no further reports of King committing any new criminal acts since this website went live in 2011.

Has this website done its job, or would the removal of the website (it’s online presence statutorily reinforced by a landmark court order), simply invite King to begin re-offending, safe from Google’s ever-present eyes?

I’m thinking these things through, and would welcome any feedback on this musing.

Grant Kings’ adult daughters Emma King & Sequoia King should be utterly ashamed of themselves in their local defence of their pedophile father.

Grant King 2015 Verdict Waitakere District Court

He scuttles here, he scuttles there, Grant King scuttles everywhere……but there is just no escape.

If there is one thing that readers have learned about Grant King over the past 5 years, it is that anything or anyone that King comes into contact with, experiences damage of some sort – we were no exception to this rule.

This damage can be commercial, financial, personal, and in the case of Grant Kings repeated sexual grooming and assault upon minor females, both physical and psychological.

Recently, Grant “Levy Ponyboy” King scuttled away to Whangamata to serve out the rest of his 18 month jail sentence, and is now reportedly living with family.

No doubt thinking he was safe from the GNKASS Network, King then went about trying to once again create another victim of what we in the network have termed”GNK Syndrome”.

The trouble for King was – the GNKASS Network (which now includes members from the Bay of Plenty)  got wind of what King was up to, and stepped in to assist.

King was stopped before he even got traction on his latest attempt of extortion.

Delightfully, we now hold all the correspondence King used in his attempt to victimise another innocent party.

Again, in little words so that Mr King is able to maximise his understanding of his on-going predicament:

We have eyes everywhere:

A message to Grant King from the Morgan Family: Stay gone.

The following message is from the family of Hayley Morgan:

“Hayley is now living with her family and working to start a new life and does not wish to have any involvement with Grant King. We don’t want Grant to be able to take away Hayley’s enjoyment of Horses and competing, so we are asking people in the horse circles to help keep an eye out for Hayley and let Grant know he is not welcome at horse events”.

Hopefully “Levi Ponyboy” will get the message, even all the way from Whangamata.

From the Sunday Star Times 25th May 2014

A fraudster’s victim who fought back has won a landmark battle to name and shame the man who scammed him and dozens of others. Nearly two and a half years ago, Steve Taylor contracted Grant Norman King to build a sleepout for his elderly father behind the family home in West Auckland. Taylor paid three-quarters of the price – $23,500 – as a deposit. The sleepout was never built and the money was not returned. In a bid to get even, Taylor brought civil proceedings against King but when the cost of continuing the case became prohibitive, he took a different tack, setting up the website grantnormanking.com with the intention of warning others who might be drawn in.

Within months other victims were clamouring to tell their stories and it was not long before Taylor built a comprehensive timeline of King’s offending. King then tried to turn the legal tables on Taylor by using the Harassment Act to sue Taylor and demand the website be taken down. Taylor was forced into Auckland District Court to defend himself. However, that was King’s mistake. “What he did was open up the opportunity for every other victim to tell their story, which was the very thing he was advocating against,” Taylor said. Affidavits in support of Taylor’s cause flooded in and he said it was surreal to be standing in court with the public gallery full of people backing him.

In court Judge David Wilson sided with Taylor and said the website, with all its explosive accusations, could remain online. “It would be inappropriate if a man in Mr King’s position could close down postings of essentially factual material on the basis that it interferes with his commercial plans and deprives him of customers,” the judge said. “I accept Mr King is distressed by the postings but in my view that distress arises because he would prefer potential customers were unaware of his history and is not such as justifies the making of restraining orders.” Lawyer Madeleine Flannagan, who advised Taylor and has been the victim of online harassment herselft, said the judge’s decision showed free speech was alive and well.

She said the unique nature of the case, setting a new precedent in harassment laws, meant it was already being used by media law professors at Auckland University. Taylor’s website also resulted in King being punished. Since setting up the website, Taylor said more than 70 victims had come forward, across a 32-year span, claiming losses of more than $3 million. As a result, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and the Ministry of Social Development began their own investigations, which ultimately led to eight convictions against King for fraud. According to Taylor’s timeline, the pattern of dishonesty started when King was convicted of receiving stolen vehicles in 1982. Taylor vowed to continue his campaign against the scammer, whom he labelled “a classical sociopath”.

King rejected the criticism of him and said he was now working as a salesman for a bike company, putting his criminal past behind him. “I have moved on and I do not deserve the sort of treatment that he’s [Taylor] given me,” he said. “I’ve been kicked from one end of the country to the other by this guy for two years with absolute bullshit mixed in with a little bit of fact and I’ve had enough of it.” He was defeated in the recent court hearing because of the “presentation of the case”, King said, but it was not his only way of hitting back at the blogger. “I’m not going to say what my next step is because I’m not going to telegraph that,” he said. Taylor was sceptical of King’s claim he had changed his ways. “I’ve been relentless in the pursuit of justice . . . I don’t think he’s going to stop, but neither am I,” he said.
