I agree with you because so many people just jupm on someone without knowing more about that person. There are many times when good people do stupid things.
this goes beyond doing a stupid thing. what more do you need to know other than than he is a sick perverted POS that needs to go away for a long time and suffer many pains from his fellow inmates.
the fact that you even have some empathy for this POS makes me question if you can be trusted in society around children

I am thinking they took the wine because it showed in the pictures he sent the kid and need it for evidence.

Huh? So you are saying a fine man who goes to work and pays his bills can not possibly want sex with a child?

Stop posting negative news that has nothing to do with Columbia or Lexington. It makes it appear we live in a terrible place based on the headlines. Start focussing on some positive stuff around the Midlands and Lexington

Wrong guy. I know this guy and he does not live in a trailor park. He actually lives in my old neighborhood and was a friend of mine. I am so shocked and could have never foreseen this. Dennis was always such a likable guy....this is so bizarre and incredibly sad for those who know him.

Meanwhile...what about the poor kid who would have been raped? I mean I know everyone makes mistakes and this guy may have very well been a great guy and all that, but apparently he has a HUGE character flaw. He came prepared to have sex with a little girl!! I don't care how sweet and kindly you are: thats sick and wrong.

Can we PLEASE start giving a d- about the children in cases like these before we start crying over the pervert?

He thought he was talking to a 12 year old buddy, not to mention he tried to meet her. If this is what it takes to stop perverterted a holes like this, then I am all for it.

I would say to take a look at pervertedjustice.com .
They bust dirtbags like this all the time and post the logs and contact info when they can. Go take a look at the "entrapment" that they use on these idiots. Of course for their tactics to be considered entrapment someone saying "12f" would have to be seen as a mating call.

Personally, I could care less how they bust these people as long as they bust them. I would much rather see them pull this crap with a cop and ruin their own life then to try it on a real kid and ruin the kid's life.

Someone wants to sleep with a 12 year old and you are okay with that?
Or do you think it was fine since it wasn't REALLY a kid he was talking to?
It would have only been illegal if he HAD actually slept with the 12 year old?

Great, let's apply that logic to other crimes shall we? I would be perfectly acceptable to plan and attempt to murder someone - it is only a crime if you succeed.
It would be totally legal for those that wish to do this nation harm to plan and begin terrorist attacks provided they don't actually blow up a plane or a building.
It would perfectly acceptable to point a loaded weapon at a law enforcement officer provided one didn't actually pull the trigger. If said law enforcement shot back before the trigger was pulled then he violated the gun holder's rights to bear arms.

Is that fact that it is ILLEGAL to sleep with a child the part that bothers you? Are you the type that would much rather have adults free to sleep with kids?

As one of those "boys" who fault for this country, I didn't do what I did to give pedophiles the chace to screw up some poor kid's life because they can't keep it in their pants. In fact, I fought for just the opposite - to keep the good people of this country safe from those that would do them harm. Personnally, I don't think offenders like this should be given anything but the death penalty...amazing what a 5.56mm peice of metal could do to curb their impulses.
