Re: Convicted Sex Offender Working with Tekkoshocon
- The guys running the anime room no-showed. I remember having several
conversations with Renee, both at the con and at Comics World about
the group (I think they're called BZAnime or DVAnime), but I don't
have any contact information for Dave Shields or any of the guys in
the group that ran the room about that.

As a staff member with Tekkoshocon, I can certainly tell you that
Christopher Dalton is not a staff member, nor has he been one since
2006. He was released from the Tekko staff when we were presented with
his criminal record. He was neither a second-level staffer nor a web
We would appreciate it if this issue would remain separate from
Tekkoshocon Inc. concerning his former volunteer status.
Artist Alley Lieutenant

have taken this issue with Ellen to private message as to not clog the
However, keep in mind, this just another of a long list of
"suspicious" activity by Tekkoshocon. Let us not forget what happened
at last year's con with the artist's alley that was by every
definition, ILLEGAL. For the uneducated, several members of the
security staff barricaded the artists in the artists alley in a room
and yelled and screamed at them for 20 or so minutes. Meanwhile, the
former con chair of Tekkoshocon was attempting to gain entry to the
room from the outside and knew this was going on. This act led to a
member of Tekkoshocon's senior staff's resignation from the Board of
Directors, as he was the person "screaming" at the artists. From my
nine years in the legal field, if even one person would have called
the police from inside that room, my sense is there would have been
arrests made for false imprisonment, possibly kidnapping (much in the
same manner that OJ was arrested for kidnapping), and the con more
than likely would have been shut down at that point.
Also, I have it from good authority from some people at the Expomart
that Tekkoshocon was asked to not return to the Expomart over a year
ahead of the planned renovations because the hotel was tired of
playing babysitter to all the under 18's running around the hotel and
Expomart unsupervised. And from my experience with the Westin,
because I stay there for business when I'm in Pittsburgh, they are not
going to tolerate unsupervised children and the noise and ruckus for a
With that, I'm done ranting, and this topic, at least as far as I'm
concerned, is closed.
