"You're Busted Buddy!"

The Original Video Vigilante ©


Since 1996, Brian Bates, Oklahoma's own Video Vigilante, has been spotlighting the graphic realities of street, forced and underage prostitution. All in an effort to expose the perpetrators, dispel the myths & raise public awareness. JohnTV achieves this goal by lifting the veil of anonymity that empowers the 'Johns' & the pimps by exposing them on this website. More about Bates and JohnTV here.

As featured on 20/20, Dateline, Nightline, Maury, CNN, MSNBC, LA Times, and more! 2009 regional EMMY award winner.

Website Update:

When JohnTV transitioned over to new servers and a new website design awhile back, we lost a great deal of our archived articles - much to the delight of hundreds of 'Johns' and pimps. Well, guess what? Those archives are returning! Every week we will be adding articles of interest from our archives that are not currently on this new website. Next to "Featured Blog Posts" you will soon see a column for "Resurrected from the JohnTV Archives." Those articles will often also contain updates not previously posted. Enjoy
