They're still investigating....They move slow around here... Don't see why it's takin so long.... Only thing I'm worried about is that they could have came to "terms" on not releasing his ident to the masses as long he didn't sue the father for sluggin him...Hopefully that's not the case here as he was stupid enough to talk and request these pictures and the Dad still has the messages saved on the PC.
But literally the dad still did the right thing in my book. He has every right to make a cizten's arrest and kick some as$ while he's at it that douchebag lost his rights the second he messaged this girl. He cannot sue he cannot do sh#t, bust his as$ and let his name out and toss him into the pen cause he damn sure isn't gonna be safe. We have enough fu@king pedos all over this town. I'd take a bullet to each one of them if I could.
They don't have rights they need to be DEAD.

the father didn't call the cops he didnt want the called. Someone wgo saw tge fight calked. its amazing how people just make up the story they want people to hear. The man did not just get a punch in the nose the father and some girl WERE beating him to a pulp. Some citizen interfered and calmed the father down so he wouldn't kill the man. I know it's hard in this situation to understand when so much rage is going through your body but the father is not a hero for hurting the man he is a hero for showing mercy and listening to the man who was talking to him. The fact that he wasn't going to let his rage get the best of him is what made him remarkable letting justice be done by the law and God. But know the true story not what you read he dis go there with the intentions of beating the man to death and begged not to have the police involved. But these people set up their sting operation and brought two little girls with them...who does that. The kids were in their vehicle crying saying they were scared. Not sure this man deserves father of the year but maybe a medal for showing restraint and not killing the man. The man deserves to be behind bars but no one has the right to kill someone no matter what they have done that's not our place..unfortunate sometimes I know. ut the good thing is the police were called and the man dis go to jail. And this is the true story not the lies in the paper.

LOL IT WAS A STING initiated by the FATHER.... IF IT WASN'T He wouldn't have called the "COPS" He'd had just beat him plup and attached a brick to his leg and tossed him into the Lake!
This man deserves the "Father of the Year" Award for real!!!!!!!
Not many fathers have the "heart" to be that forgiving.. And letting them off with just a slug to the nose, Myself I'd kill the bastard. I wouldn't even call the cops.

I didn't know they didn't arrest him but was probably because the father and girlfriend beat the daylights out of the man and failed to report it. The man would be behind bars of they would have involved the police first instead of taking matters into their own hands.

good. serves the pervert right. where's the usual topix idiots who would have posted by now about how the little 12-year old was leading him on and all that? The ones that usually stick up the pedophiles and statutory rapists around here? They're disappointing me. They're usually all over this sort of thing when it's a pregnant 13 or 15-year old and an 18 or 19 year-old like they think it's still 1890 around here, but suddenly they develope a conscience when it's a 12-year old getting asked for a picture in a bikini by a 42-year old? The lack of conviction on their part is appalling. Also, I want the Herald-Citizen to follow up on this article. This jackass is a danger to the community. That police report should have included his name and address (and why he wasn't arrested is a mystery to me. I'm glad he got a bloody nose, but he's a sexual predator as well. He used social media to solicite a child for pictures of a sexual nature. They need to do a little more about this pervert then a brief interview and a bit of contrition on his part.)

Who is the pervert from Monterey? Come on, somebody's got a name. People with kids need to know. You won't be held responsible if something happens to him. He will be responsible.

damn! just damn!!!! Why would a soul stick up for that pedo?!!!/facepalm... The law isn't called because of this fact...

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/546/pedo...

See how they work and operate?!!! There's too many of them here! Even some are in vcilation of the law not to live less than 1500 ft from a school/ daycare / park etc..

See how many there is?!!! Not even counting the overlapping!!!

The law no longer works for people. They work for themselves and never use any "common sense" when sentencing the pedos or rapists...

This town is Pedoville as you can see on that picture...

Tho yeah damn he brought the KIDS?!!! Geez not something I'd do!/facepalm

But yeah that's coming from you... Fact or not???

HC never prints FACT only what they want to...

HC IS GARBAGE!!!!

When people find out who he is, he will have to move out of Monterey, he won't see any peace once people know who he is for sure! He don't deserve any either.

<quoted text> Gotta agree with you on this one! That is scary. I wonder why it's not in the paper? The law is hard to understand, sometimes, but perhaps the Dad would actually be in trouble for assault; I hate to think that, but the actual consequences to him, legally, might be greater (the Dad). SOMETHING has to be done in cases like this. The DA can only operate within the law, and there may even be issues of entrapment, please don't get mad, I am not at all trying to minimize the event! I would like to know who it is, also, coming from Monterey. Sheesh, my uncles never asked for a photo of ME in a bathing suit! I am on the Dad's side and feel pretty good about him handling the situation at least to give the guy a bloody nose. wow
I am by nature a suspicious person. The paper has no reason not to investigate the facts and get the information on who the perp from Monterey is. So it makes me think that something is being hidden from the public. WHO is this man? WHY isn't his name being published? WHY wasn't he charged by the police as stalking a child? WHY isn't the public being alerted that there is a CHILD PREDATOR among us?

Blank, wrong. There is no justice in letting a pedophile go free...that is total stupidity. Now the pervert is free to go after a different child. Maybe next time he will succeed in rape or even murder. The police need to investigate this incident since it is made so public, and make the arrest, and prosecute this guy so he can be put on the Tennessee Sexual Offender Registry for all to be on the watch out for. That is what needs to be done. Don't invoke God's name in this...God has nothing to do with it.

obviously you can't read seeing how I said he needs to be behind bars. and do not tell me not to bring Gods name into it because I will bring God into anything and everything, God has to do with everything. Did you even read the post. I said God will judge and punish this man and he will . Of course he needs to be behind bars which is something I said in my post. Your mind only works one way obviously if that post was that difficult for you to understand. You didn't see either party and you really don't even know what happened just what you have heard. I knew some idiot would turn my post into something else when all it meant was that it should have been delt with by the police, then they and GOD could deal with him. But my guess is he is out because they did take it into their own hands. but come on if course this guy needs to be in jail on the sex offender list all that..really who would disagree with that honestly?

If a child is under 15 maybe 16 imo they shouldn't even have a fb. And their internet use should be monitored and have parental controls on it. The internet is way too dangerous. My children are only allowed to use it for school or to look things up, not to chat or play. They also do not have cell phones , its insane these 10 year olds that have laptops and smartphones with full blown internet and texting. Ive seen 6 year olds with a phine just like mine. to me thats nuts i mean really what is wrong with some parents. Why do 6-14 yr olds need smartphones? My generation didnt have them and there was a lot less kids getting in trouble over internet chat and things like that. My kids will not have smartphones until they are driving.

Mine didn't have a cell until he was old enough to buy it himself and pay his own bill. You know, when he had a job. Same for computer, till he bought his own and pays for 1/2 of internet, no computer in his room, and he was 19 when that happened.
