you must not have any children to be defending these pervs. You cannot always monitor your kids especially if they're at someone else's house. Besides wasn't the "13 year old" an undercover cop? So if the guy knew this "kid" was underage why was he still talking to her? Obvioulsy, he had some devious intent if he kept it up--pardon the pun.

they are not doing these stings legal , they are not following the constitution. and the police are wrong . we all want the pervs taken care of but in a legal way, that is what america is all about . rights
Are you kidding me

I'm gald this "girl" was realy a cop. If it had been a real 13yo girl that would have been a tragedy. We need more officers in these chatrooms acting like little boys and girls so we can get more of these people off the streets. I have been in chatrooms and as soon as i see that the chatter is under 18 i end all posts no matter the nature of the convo. What business does an adult have chatting with a teenager
What they need to do is shut all the chat rooms down! Problem solved! What did we all do before chat rooms?

Gee, your're concerned about the rights of a pervert. How noble of you. I'm sure the ACLU loves people like you. It's illegal to send someone you think is a teenager pictures of yourself performing sexual acts. Teenagers who are minors are being protected from these predators by law enforcement officers who pose as potential victims. The accused gets a lawyer and a trial. If the conducts cops conducted their investigation in an illegal manner, the case gets tossed out.
If you have a problem with busting pervs, before they arrange a meeting with some teenager, then I suggest you get some mental health care.
Very well said.

#1 Make sure a person is guilty before you affect his reputation, his freedom or his pocketbook.#2 Make sure that during your investigation you always assure yourself that you are the fairest juior a suspect will ever have. And #3 Remember - you do not make facts; you discover and report them.

As soom as a person tries to solicit sex from someone online who he/she believes is underage they have comitted a crime. i don't think the papers should release the names of the accused until there is a conviction however. but to say that this is entrapment is to say that this person had no other choice but to try and solicit sex from this supposed minor when in reality the adult should have terminated the chatting as soon as the "teen" stated that he/she was underage.

Okay, let's see, here's my anology of it. If I'm walking down the street, minding my own business, and someone walks up to me and offers to sell me drugs, am I going to buy them? No, because it's illegal. If this same person is an undercover cop and follows me all over town, do I finally give in because he convinces me I won't get caught? No. If I did buy the drugs and was arrested, would I be a victim? No! Nuff Said.

if you bought the drugs yes. but these men never touch any one , and it was a cop that they were talking to not a minor, they lure them in this is called a incomplete crime, entrapment , if he got there and touch this girl yes , if you were put in jail for murder , dont you need a body they cant charge you with murder until they have a victim that is the law .
