Stupid ignorant pervert......... why in the h3ll would you want to have sex with a 12 year old????

Should have gone to a "free porn" site with a jar and tissue, but instead, he is going to jail as a sexual predator. Good riddance & here is hoping that he gets lots-o-pleasure in prison from the biggest "bubba" possible.

Actually, if you read the story, it was a Lexington Co Deputy posing as a 12 year old. It didn't say anything about an actual child.

Get a good look at that picture. This is someone's relative, friend, neighbor or co-worker.

Keep him away from your children and keep your children away from him.

Just about everytime I look at ANY grown man anymore- the thought runs through my mind that he might very well be some perverted creep that likes to do young girls. Men are pigs and getting worse all the time. What's the matter with grown men these days that they cannot control themselves and their "urges"? Yeah, you hear about female school teachers getting it on with the young men in their classes but women are not doing the perverted crap near on the level of men. The internet has made it so much easier for these pervs to think they are anonymous. Stupid clod. He probably had a double life going, too.

I think she meant that if this weren't happening to REAL little girls, we wouldn't need law enforcement to set up stings to catch people like this. Any man who would try to have sex with a child is a sick, nasty ba$tard...and the women are no better.

My logic is that there are too #@&* many sex perverts out there and quite frankly, I'm sick of it. The reason I cited the the difference in perversion is that I was sure someone would bring up the fact that women are also getting arrested for crimes against minors. My point was yes, some females do this but not on the scale of men. Are you an expert on this type of behavior? Where do you get statistics that men usually go after strangers and women go after acquaintances? I've heard of plenty of men who go after acquaintances and girls they know quite well. How many times have you heard of the jerk doing his kids' babysitter? I doubt I'll get over the gender issue because I stand by my statement- men are pigs for the most part. Sorry if this offends you but that is the way I feel. I don't trust 90% of the men I know-especially around young women. Seems like the older they get, the worse they get.
I don't care who offends more against the innocents,man or woman,it needs to stop.

These guys haven't figured out that they are all cops posing as teenie boppers. A teenager would more than likely tell these fu**ers to go **** themselves. The officers let them "go" as far as they want and respond to their perversions in order to put them in jail. I am not saying the officers are wrong, just the perves are really, really, stupid. I don't want him at 40 something - can you imagine at 12 saying "sorry girls, he's all mine". He is not what you would call eye candy.

I fail to understand your logic what is the difference in perversion with an adult female has sex with 12, 13, 14, etc. boys vs an adult male having sex with a 12, 13 ,14, etc.
You need to get over the gender issue. The fact is male sexual predators usually go after strangers. While female sexual predators go after acquaintances - i.e. student, someone they are baby sitting etc. Female sexual predators are much harder to catch because of their method finding prey.

This man could be a husband, father or grandfather and it is a shame he has done this to his family. But what is even worse is that he is from a very small town and who's to say he hasn't done this with a child there.

How many times have we heard about an arrest of a murderer, rapist, predator, whatever, and had someone who knows that person say "He is just the nicest guy, he couldn't have done that"?...I have never personally known any of these alleged criminals, until James Capps was arrested. I have known James, his wife and children, now grown and one a Citadel grad for over 20 years. I must say that when I heard his name, on the news last night, I was shocked. Never in a million years would I have thought James would do something like this. If convicted, he deserves whatever is dealt him. I do feel for his family though. It does go to show that predators can be anybody. Just don't be too surprised when it's somebody you know and would never suspect! Even though this was an undercover operation, I do agree that parents are too liberal with their children. It's time to start being parents and kids being kids.

We would have never though it either. Thank you for your kind words though undeserving so it may seem. I ask that everyone out there remember it's not the families that have committed this crime. We are still the same, however deeply scarred and mentally traumatized as that "same" may be.
These crimes are not new folks. Theyíve been around as long as humans have been. They are just getting better at doing something about them. Itís estimated that one out of every 3 women have been molested or raped and of those only 1 out of 5 report it. In a room of 10 women at least 3 of them and only 1 probably reported. Itís not much better for men either, 1 out of 12 and even more of those go unreported.

I know this man's wife, and have for years. You are right, they have nice adult children who have children, and yes this could happen in any family! There are many men who are addicted to porn, chats etc. and they are ruining the lives of their wives and children. So if someone reading this is an addict...PLEASE GET HELP before you ruin the lives of those you love.
