Jonas and Beryl were listed as "instructors" for Efficient Pickup, run by RSD alum JMULV, who plead guilty to "sexual coercion". http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2 ... crets.html

Despite their instructor bios saying Jonas has "extensive experience in teaching" and Beryl "was running bootcamps every week," at 2:14:40 JMULV claims they "never actually taught programs for us [and] were not affiliated with us at all".

Here is Jonas's bio from Efficient Pickup

http://web.archive.org/web/201310090159 ... structors/

Jonas (San Diego, San Francisco, Los Angeles)

This guy’s game is on another level that no one has ever seen. He pulls every single night he is out. He has regular threesomes from cold approach, and it’s not uncommon for him to fuck 3 girls in one night from the same venue. His lay count is now over 150. At the age of 24 it’s hard to believe just three years ago he was a virgin.

His style is focused on hitting it up hard 24/7 while also keeping it simple and being efficient. He will push you harder in the field than you have ever been pushed, and he doesn’t put up with any bullshit. Having experienced the initial pain period of getting no results for longer than the average guy he understands what actually works for getting guys RESULTS.

Jonas has a very in-depth understanding of game with extensive experience in teaching guys how to become ridiculously advanced players. His advice is direct and easily applicable. He cares about his students and puts their success above everything else.

And here is Alexander Markham "Beryl" Smith's bio.

Beryl (Any U.S. City – Travelling Instructor)

Beryl read, and began the game in October of 2011 with no results for the rest of the year (and a bakers dozen of lifetime lays) Beryl now has a total count over 120. On January 1st, 2012 Beryl met Josh who took him under his wing, and within their first night meeting; they were pulling several girls per night in Vegas. After that Josh and Beryl winged together every weekend for nearly two years; since then change has been dramatic. Within one month past 2012; Beryl was running bootcamps every week after his skill level was noticed by the San Diego Pickup Community.

After two years; Beryl has taken game to a new level – fucking over 100 girls since January 2012 while being in relationships for most of 2013. Recently he has fucked 25 new girls in 2 months, as well as 7 in 8 days. Beryl invented the art of running Train Game; and has threesomes and gangbangs on the regular. Beryl knows what it is like to have shitty instruction – and pushes his students hard to make sure they get results. Most of Beryl’s pulls are within 3 minutes of meeting the girl(s). He is a master of game; logistics; and improvisation and now regularly fucks strippers, some pornstars and can deal with any sort of environment for game.

Beryl knows what it is like to have shitty instruction – and pushes his students hard to make sure they get results that exceed their wildest expectations. No matter what your skill level is; Beryl will take you up several notches and open your eyes to what’s actually possible.

It looks like Jason Berlin is getting sentenced today. I don't know what happened to Jonas Dick last week. Those two pled guilty; Alex Smith has not yet been tried.

It sounded like that Asian chick was pretty down with it honestly until she was outed as being a huge skank to her friend; then surprise! She sobers the fuck up quickly. They all sounded pretty sloppy. None of us like these frauds, but I don't want to see people's lives ruined over skanks that can't deal with their bad decisions.

EDIT

Hmmm. I have some doubt with the OP I guess on 2nd read. He does go from the girl throwing up on the floor to the sex part pretty quickly without nary a mention of the girl's state inbetween her throwing up and the sex.

Beryl is back in court tomorrow. This is interesting, because the other guys will go to jail for years after pleading guilty. So Beryl might figure he has nothing to lose. If the victims are bad witnesses, or if the jury is deadlocked by prude blame-the-victim jurors, then Beryl could go free. It is just weird that the guiltiest defendant did not take a plea.

LOL, did she first report him or did he get outed by writing this field report?

The stupid defendants probably posted their blogs while police were processing the victims.

Jason wrote:girl goes apeshit ... slapping the shit out of him and made him bleed. Beryl literally throws her out.

Beryl wrote:So we run a train on the hoe. I text Jonas to choo choo her but he has to occupy her friend. ... my chick freaked out (cause now she's the slut etc.) I get hit in the face with a high heel. I laugh; we kick them out.


It's a damning fact pattern when two defendants admit sex with a puking victim who fights back.

Again, I'm puzzled that both field reports agree Jonas merely "occupied the friend", yet
News Story wrote:Jonas pleaded guilty to one felony count of rape of an unconscious person. Sentencing range is mandatory between five and eight years.


Presumably, Jonas pleaded guilty to get a lenient sentence. They must have had slam-dunk evidence and threatened him with the maximum. For example, maybe Jonas texted "I will occupy the blonde so you can rape her unconscious friend", or maybe they have DNA evidence that he participated. Obviously there was no consent if he jumped in at the end with an unconscious victim. In contrast, Beryl will try to raise reasonable doubt about consent, and claim the woman was at least conscious with him at the beginning.

Otherwise, it makes little sense that Jonas will get at least five years, while the worst defendant Beryl will get at most eight years, with a chance of acquittal.

So two already got convicted (Jason Berlin and Jonas Isaac Dick) and the 3rd defendant Beryl (Alexander Markham Smith) has pleaded not guilty and is asking for it go to trial.

I seriously doubt this will ever end up in an acquittal considering his co defendants were already convicted. Not only that but the victim's testimony, the written field reports(that he was in fact there), and two of his co-defendants testifying against him to get a lesser sentence.

His lawyer can only argue consent, but with the "field reports" claiming she was puking that will be very difficult to prove reasonable doubt. Not only that but the victim's testimony will SURELY mess up any reasonable doubt about consent.

then again, i don't have all the evidence/discovery like the attorneys/prosecutors do.

Regardless, it doesn't look good for Beryl aka Alexander Markham Smith.... he will most likely get convicted and will get the harshest punishment.

IN california, Jason Berlin and Jonas Isaac Dick will not be sentenced yet until the end resolution of the 3rd co-defendant. Judging from what i notice, they will get a lifetime registry in the sex offender list AND 4-7 yrs in prison(depending on mitigating factors). Beryl(if convicted) will get the harshest sentence though

one of them couldn't afford a lawyer so he got a public defender. More than likely, their attorneys probably showed them the discovery of evidence and told them that they will most likely be a conviction even if it goes to trial since the prosecution has a slam dunk case with overwhelming evidence

Then again, Beryl is taking the risk. I would be surprised of Alexander Markham Smith gets acquitted while his two other co-defendants pleaded guilty. Because if Beryl gets acquitted, shouldn't his two other co-defendants also be acquitted since they were there with him?

This is big news in the PUA community.

JMULV was also charged with kidnapping/sodomy/etc, he took a plea bargain(misdemeanor attempted kidnapping/battery) but he was banned forever from the las vegas strip.

Then his colleagues (1 bootcamp student and 1 instructor) were convicted of rape

things aren't looking good LOL, then again I kinda knew this would happen

Excellent, ecellent..... :-)

Is it really lifetime sex offender registry? Wow... :cool:

yup, lifetime in the registry

they call it the "california special"

they give it out ESPECIALLY to people who accept plea bargains w/ a promise of a shorter prison sentence

rest assure, berlin and dick won't ever have gainful employment and residency anytime soon even afer they get released

I don't know what to think.

On one hand these guys are scammers and they deserve what they got for scamming people.

On the other hand, these fucking sloots are worthless and have zero self-respect, their vaginas are like a hotel corridor, random people come and go and they don't give a a fuck. 5 years for using such a public vagina is way too harsh IMHO.

If the mandatory sentence is 5-8 years, then I appreciate why Beryl will gamble on getting 8 years for a chance chance of acquittal. He might argue that the victim was consenting with him, and then became progressively drunker and sick when his friends joined. This story won't match the blogs (or testimony), but it might be worth a gamble if he has a high-priced lawyer who can confuse the jury.

It is harsh compared to the Stanford rapists six-month sentence. But Beryl is a piece of shit.

My name is Beryl and ... I run trains on girls and enjoy breaking a lesbians willpower down and fucking her. RSD nation are faggots and banned me for teaching people how to run trains on bitches.

It is highly unusual to text friends to consensually "run trains" or to "break a lesbian's will power down". IMHO, Beryl routinely gang-raped victims. I doubt Beryl will bring any of his conquests as character witnesses. If the prosecution finds other credible victims, then Beryl is in big trouble.

Maybe you'd think differently if they used you as a hotel corridor. Hope I got you thinking...

I seriously doubt they will not serve any jail time off a rape conviction

the most lenient sentence for raping while intoxicated was that stanford swimmer guy, but he still got 6 months. I doubt this judge will give them 6 months, probably 3-6 yrs

This is yet another huge problem of the PUA type brainwashing that goes from beyond just misinformation and mostly harmless, in terms of severe life consequences, delusions to things which can can actually cause you serious harm to you and your life and potentially even death.

PUA's live in a fantasy world and teach from one where there are no "social consequences" which shows just how truly out of touch with actual socializing and social skills they really are despite PUA claiming to teach these these things and better than anyone else to top it off.

Fact is this is the real world. Humans are social creatures and there is far more to the social world and it's workings and functions than stupid reckless irresponsible PUA's understand or teach. This is not some fairy land where you are playing a video game on god mode and can't be injured or killed.

Try amogging and doing cold approach in a closed off social environment such as a biker bar with different social functioning and rules and see how long it takes for you to get your ass beaten and removed from the venue.

But remember "no social consequences".

Also go to the mall and act like a fucking creep (if your a PUA you probably don't realize that you are being one) and just wait for the police to circle up on you and then confront you and remove you from the place and ban you.

Or go hit on the wrong guys girlfriend aggressively and get your stupid smirk pushed through the back of your thick skull.

But it's all just a "social experiment" remember?

It's lala land where people aren't real human beings just programs in your little matrix play ground to toy with that can't actually harm you or cause problems for you.

Fact is this is real life and especially if you are doing so in certain environments you are in serious potential danger if you don't know what you are doing and your social guidance consists of Owen cook and his socially vapid "beast mode" garbage.

Human behavior and interaction is a huge complex subject that that you could put tremendous effort and study into and you would still have a ton to learn and explore.

Trust me that Owen didn't fully solve and encompass the whole entire thing with his stupid DVD sets of him rambling even though RSD brands itself as some sort of cutting edge social understanding that is beyond all of the thousands of years of human thought and understanding of the subject.

Picking up chicks is a mans games and yes you run risks. Just like any other enjoyable but risky dangerous activity. Of course there is lower and higher risks ways of doing it also.

If you want to run the streets at night and hit up bars and clubs and go aggressively screen women physically in public locations for the purposes of quick sex yes you are obviously exposing yourself to some dangers and risks.

Just like with all other things they actively and conveniently keep from their students like looks mattering they also don't discuss things like this and instead blow a bunch of smoke up your ass that you are some sort of macho superhuman alpha god that can't get his ass kicked or worse.

You get the same shit with stuff like "plowing" because of course most of PUA's user base such as RSD is socially retarded and then goes out and tries to rape someone and then brags about it on RSD forum.

It's like the bluepill version of consequences to your decisions and behavior.

Instead maybe they should rightly instill some fear and common sense and actual social skills / perception into their students instead of their rainbows and puppies and baby teddy bear macho bullshit that is just a fantasy in the students head not actually anything remotely resembling reality.

lol wow, Alexander Markham Smith(his 2 co-defendants are already guilty) why is he even fighting this?

a simple testimony from the victim and the incriminating "field report" from his co-defendants is enough evidence for a conviction

lol he will get sentenced to a lifetime sex offender registry and 5-6 yrs in prison

UPDATE Alexander Markham Smith aka Beryl found guilty of the jury(2 women 10 men). He will be sentenced Oct 20th

Jonas Isaac Dick has pleaded guilty to two rapes. One of which was a 16 yr old girl(which matched his DNA) and the original charge of rape while intoxicated. He is expecting to serve 8 years in prison and lifetime sex offender registry

Jason Berlin has pleaded guilty of raping while intoxicated(he was equally as guilty even if he didn't do the crime). He's facing a maximum of 8 years and lifetime sex offender registry.

From The Daily Beast Article:

Jonas’s crime was essentially rape in concert—even though he hadn’t had sex with Claire, he admitted that he’d known what Alex was allegedly planning to do to her. According to California law, by keeping Claire’s friend Laura occupied—in part by hiding her phone—Jonas had acted as an accomplice, and was just as responsible.

Jonas was also charged with another rape shortly after being charged with Claire’s.
...
As it turns out, Jonas’s DNA swab matched yet another victim in a national DNA database ... which ... involved alcohol and a college student.
...
UPDATE: On Wednesday afternoon, a San Diego jury convicted Alex Smith of two felony counts: rape of an intoxicated person and rape of an unconscious person. He’ll be sentenced on October 20, and faces a maximum of eight years in prison.
....
Linda set up another security camera in the hallway of the third floor, and pointed it at Alex and Jonas’s apartment.
In court testimony, Detective Nugent described seeing “several” women from Linda’s tapes who appeared “distraught and upset.” Linda couldn’t say how many women she saw leave that way.



The mystery is solved. Alex "Beryl" Smith and Jonas did this shit regularly, and the judge was probably appalled. Jonas got eight years for being an accomplice. No wonder Alex didn't take a plea - he won't get more than eight years.

There is no "rape culture". These guys are unrepentant predators who used alcohol to disable their victims.

They are also dumbasses. The police did not investigate until the victims found the blogs bragging about the rapes. Otherwise, there would not have been enough evidence for a prosecution.

^Legit

Even though judging by your username, I don't know whether you are serious or not
