I say hang this guy. Did he really think a 13 year old would really be interested in seeing a 52 year old? Scarry to think these perverts are all around us.

what a sick man. Why would a grown man think a child would be intrested in his sexual advances ? Has he never seen Dateline to catch a predator. Hand and neuter this sick child predator.

It is such a shame that perverts such as this guy are allowed to walk the streets. What was he going to teach her? Biology.

If found guilty. Has he been found guilty yet??? Next and just as importantly..What was a supposed 13 year old doing in an chat room that has verified age of 18??? Fantisy is fantisy. I am not saying this guy is right. What I am saying is the two wrongs don't make a right. Saying she was only 13 should have been the key for him to tell her or report her as an underage person in the room. This smells of intrapment. It is not any different then illegal or forged ID to by beer. If he met her that would have been a totally different story. I think that exposure to a minor or something to that effect maybe in order here.

Entrapment is getting the person to do something they would not ordinarily do. The police didn't solicit the sicko, the sicko solicited the girl (police.) That is not entrapment.

That's sick that anyone would even cry foul on the part of the police in this. You're right, he should've reported the minor for being where they shouldn't have been, but no... instead, he allegedly solicits her for sex. That's the point. What if it was a real 13 year old girl? His intention was allegedly still to solicit sex from a 13 year old girl as evidenced by his alleged actions. Let the police entrap the id10ts of the world if that's what it takes to protect the children who may not know any better.

Oh gee. Could they have deceived this fellow? Does their deception not equate entrapment and therefore shouldn't all charges be dropped?
No. He'll get his day in court and an attorney who will no doubt bring that into question.
The cops started trolling the internet for perverts when a few kids got lured into meeting some perverts off line, in the real world. Some got seduced, abused and murdered. So the cops started posing as "bait" and seeing what these nutjobs were upto. When they step over the line, they get arrested and charged. I guess exposing yourself via a web camera, to what you believe is a child is still a crime. Perhaps since this guy was a teacher you could console yourself that it is fortunate he has been identified before he did something to a student at the school.
Myself, as a parent I have no concerns about the police deceiving him. Forget the two wrongs don't make a right logic. I'm sure his lawyer will count on a few concerned citizens like yourself being on the jury. Just do the parents of this community a small favor and stay off jury duty.

Is this the same logic as passing around child porn of a 13 year old because it's fantasy and he would never act on it and didn't take the pictures?

Jeez, these people don't need to be anywhere near our children. The only problem is how can you know if they haven't ever been convicted of the same crime?

What are chemtrails? Bets are if you watch the sky for a few weeks you will see them. They resemble jet contrails in that they start out as a white line of 'trail' from an aircraft.
Unlike contrails, they can be very low and are sometimes tinged with oranges, yellows or purples or even reflect oily rainbows in them.
Analysis of chemtrail spray have turned up powdered aluminum, barium, pathogens and even dried human blood cells.
When you see Chemtrails, it's obvious. They are commonly see in patterns of "X" or "tic-tac-toe", parallel lines and random etches.(Again,'normal air traffic" follows set and rigid air flight paths and do not fly where they feel like it in repeat, tight patterns). The lines can reach from horizon to horizon or be confined to a specific section of sky. Also commonly reported is the eventual oily "airport smell" , a 'metallic' smell or the smell of chemicals. This was two reasons people noticed them, but the main reason is that they are making people sick. Chances are if you see spraying in your area, you will be sick the next day or possibly within hours. You know those times, out of nowhere, you got a sore throat, or felt like you had the flu, or woke up in the morning feeling all stuffed up and achy? I bet if you had looked at the sky the previous day, you'd have seen Chems. The symptoms of "Chem-illness" include sore throat, "flu-like" feeling, diarrhea, itchy eyes, abdominal pain, joint aches and pain, headaches, fatigue and respiratory illnesses; upper respiratory and blood infections, severe asthma attacks, dizziness, inability to 'get a deep breath". People report symptoms lasting for as long as several months.
Chemtrails are being sprayed daily all over USA (and other countries too) in a white crisscross pattern. They contain diseases and chemicals which affect our state of consciousness. They can produce apathy which works in conjuction with fluoridation of the water, as well as aspartame and drugs. Fluoride disables the willpower section of the brain, impairing the left occipital lobe.
Dude, lay off the 'shrooms.

I disagree, but the fact of the matter is...What was a 13 year old doing in 18 year old age verified room??? Solicit is an actual act to someone in person. I am not sure the internet is in person... If he would have met the girl in person I would say...Cut his nuts off..
