Unmasking Frank Beckles

Steven Trustrum Commentary 1 Comment

My latest project isn’t a RPG, it’s a guy by the name of Frank Beckles

Long story short, someone noticing the misbehaviour of a guy by the name of Frank Beckles asked me if there was anything I could do to help out the person he was cyberbullying. They approached me because of my previous efforts at revealing the plagiarism perpetrated by Dark Phoenix Publishing and they though my work on DC Adventures might mean I could talk to someone at DC Comics (you’ll see why this comes up.)

My verification code for this post is Y#YW>@s-9e]v5De (more on this in the PDF.)

After looking into the situation, I decided to help how I knew best: doing some research and putting my findings online.

Frank Beckles lives in Augusta Georgia and, after giving an interview to a reporter, Tracey McManus, she found out some of what he’d told her was fiction and exaggeration. Since revealing this, Frank has undertaken a campaign of online harassment, slander, and aggression against Ms. McManus that just keeps going on and on.

Well, my research into this guy paints a very clear picture of the sort of guy he is.

He is a misogynist who hates women who dare to stand up to him.

Because he is black, anyone who gets in his way is painted with the label of being racist (indeed, because of my research into him, I’m certain it’s only a matter of time before he tries saying that I am a racist as well.)

He is a bully who hides behind the facade of a make believe identity by which he portrays himself as a church leader, civil rights icon, military hero, “9/11 hero,” public servant, educator, writer, actor, film director, star athlete, and much more.

Frank Beckles does so under various spellings of his name, and has even created entirely imagined identities he weaves into his delusions.

Frank also likes to use free web services, such as blogspot and flickr, to spread his lies and aggressive behaviour — against specific individuals and against women in general.

My files and videos on Frank Beckles

Here is a link to a PDF I made of my compiled research along with an Excel file that paints a timeline of Frank’s many claims so you can see just how implausible (and even impossible, in many cases) they are:


So that this information has a context, I’ve also broken down and summarized my findings in the following videos. So massive was the muck I had to wade through that it took SIX videos just to explain the important parts.

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 1

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 2

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 3

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 4

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 5

Unmasking Frank Beckles Part 6

Excuses some of the typos in the videos. I did most of the editing at 2 and 3 in the morning.

Have a look before Dr. Pastor Bishop Frank Beckles starts taking down websites.

(sorry for the mumbling in the videos, by the way. I burned my mouth and had visible blisters on my inner lip at the time.)

Spread the word about Frank Beckles !

Look over the PDF, watch the videos. Even if you don’t want to do so yourself, please share links to this blog or to the videos and PDF/Excel zip file directly. Spread the word that aggressive cyberbullies like Frank Beckles who feel they can use the supposed safety of the Internet to harass others, such as Tracey McManus of the Augusta Chronicle, are not free to do so without people taking notice and saying it is not okay.
