My Mistake In Believing
Keegan William Kangas
(Michigan inmate #937832)

"The conduct that you displayed is very disturbing. Not only was it troubling that you were targeting these [13-year old] girls for sexual activity.

And when the police came to you, you tried to get out of it by giving them false identities...
It's very troubling - the behaviour you displayed and the targeting of these young children. Not onIy target them but to have sexual intercourse with them... The behavior you displayed is vile. These were children..."

"I am very sorry to learn Keegan betrayed you and took advantage of your trust."

I felt obliged to amend this website after managing a campaign that argued Keegan Kangas was innocent of the crimes
for which he was convicted (as he claimed), and then discovering, on 12/13 May 2017, that he had lied to me. I have therefore sought to correct what was originally said here, and on social media and in numerous emailings.

supporters, I sent him money and books and provided other support, but I also spent a great deal of both money
and time in a campaign that asserted his innocence (because, I, unwisely, believed his claim that he was innocent). The fact
that I came to realize my error in doing this, should be a warning to anyone who may make the mistake of contacting
