It must have been a slow day for real crime.
A Couple of Sheriff’s deputies ran their own little sex sting here in Sarasota resulting in the arrest of a handful of young men ages 18 to 53. The police trolled on Backpage.com, Meetme.com, Craiglslist.com, Grinder.com, Badoo.com and even used KIK messenger. They targeted two young men that were gay. Sadly, young men, barely out of their teens are no match for savvy female detectives twice their age.
In these types of sex stings, the detectives are the real sex predators.
Think of the good that could have been done if the detectives had spent that same amount of time lecturing and speaking at local schools. The real solution is to warn young girls and young men of the dangers of the Internet.
It does no good at all to arrest a bunch of young guys, make them registered sex offenders, stick them in prison and ruin their lives.
- Sex stings like this clog the Courts, waste police resources that could be better spent on real crime.
Violent crime should be the priority.
Crimes against the elderly should be a priority.
Heroin addiction and treatment should be a priority.
Ruining a handful of young men’s lives has no place in real meaningful law enforcement here in Sarasota.
