Early this month the Manatee Florida Sheriff announced the arrest of 14 men. Just this week another Sting in the Daytona Deltona area claimed another thirteen victims and in the last two days, two more stings were announced in the Jacksonville area as well as South Georgia in Effingham and Chatham Counties. The Effingham sting ran for weeks and was called operation “summer heat”. In that one sixteen men in their twenties succumbed to the police entrapment techniques. That sting also roped in another thirteen men in their thirties and amazingly another seven in their forties. That is a total of four stings in less than two weeks. Law enforcement has found a way to create crimes, run up arrests and destroy lives. I would be willing to be out the eighty six men arrested, there were only a handful that ever had any intention of hooking up with anyone underage. Sex is the ultimate bait….Bait and Switch…That is why they call it jail bait
The police are scraping the bottom of the barrel now and arresting men with learning disabilities, developmental impairments and other mental deficits. The propaganda that they are “protecting the public from predators” is simply false. What amazes me is that eighty six men got talked into traveling to arrest locations. I have blogged on this issue over and over.
As a sex crime lawyer I see how these arrests destroy families and lives.
The best way to not get arrested is to never communicate with anyone underage, period.
There are no young girls on the Internet that are looking for sex…Ever
If you hear the age 12, 13, 14 or 15 terminate all contact immediately
Nothing good will ever come of talking to a minor on the Internet.
If you have a friend or relative or son that spends time on the Internet, warn them to never communicate with a minor. In my opinion the police should focus on educating teenagers to the dangers. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
It is always a trap….There are no real underage girls….Do not even think about it…do not do it.
Everyone’s goal is the protection of children…My goal is to protect people from police abuse
