While their is good and bad in everything I have to question these internet sting operations. Most all sting operations I know of are done in public with something tangible, such as a bait car, underage alcohol purchasing, speeding, prostitution rings, murder for hire. etc.

I cannot think of any occasion that a sting operation is not done in the physical since.

None of these internet sting operations wouldn't happen in public and that's a fact.

Using an internet were one cannot see who's really on the other end of the screen doesn't give any advantage and to me that would seem to go against the police code of ethics.

If you really think about this one has to put all the pieces of the puzzle together and look at all this with common sense.

What is the opportunity?

Is this a real teenage gal or a fictitious gal posing as horny person in an adult chat room?

What's a teenage gal doing in an adult chat room?

Who entices who?

Who suggests meeting? Was it her or you or did you ask if she would like to meet you. Their is a difference.

These internet sting operations are cunning and the so called fictitious teenager will use everything to try to bring you down to her level.

Now suppose you suggested if she would like to meet you, I would image she would be soliciting herself if she said yes.

Now suppose you said that you had a condition before meeting that their was to be no sex.......... I would think the whole opportunity for the chat was for the purpose of having sex but since you can't have sex with a six foot officer than it has to be attempt.

I am just wondering what kind of ruse the police are doing all in the name of safety on an adult chat site when yahoo states one has to be 18 to participate.

I am not quite sure about other chat sites about age but from what yahoo states one has to be 18 and has to register which is a form of a contract stating the person's age.

I don't know about the rate of internet sting operations verses actual crimes involving real teens or kids but I do know that these sting operations are a cottage industry for police and they are making a lot of money with these so called cat and mouse games.

If anyone out there reads this could you please enlighten me on all this as I would love to know how the american citizen is getting duped by all this.Contact me at magic357@comcast.net

I have wrote letters to my congressman and am getting ready to write the judge in my case as we all need to stand up and not let this go on deaf ears.

Stand up for your rights! Two things I think all people hate are liars and thief's........... and they are thief's when they take your rights away.

I am engaged to a sex offender. We have been together for almost 4 years. He was 18 when he had consensual oral sex with a 14 year old. He served 10 months in the county jail and was placed on probation. In the last few months of probation, before we started dating, he and a friend crossed state lines without permission of his probation officer. After we started dating and on the day before his probation was to end his probation officer had him turn himself in and violated him for his trip across state lines. He is now at the end of his sentence and at the end of his treatment program in the state program for sex offenders. The program has actually been a blessing in disguise.

The real issue is trying to find a place for us to live when he gets out on parole. Besides the fact that he has a felony conviction on his record and that most landlords do not want to rent to someone with that type of record he also has to be on the state sex offender registry. When looking for an apartment to rent that needs to be affordable I need to ask if they will allow a sex offender to live there. There is no sense in my asking to be approved and moving in only to find out that in a few months when my fiancé gets out he won't be allowed to live with me and therefore I will need to move again. The state has done away with residency restrictions and I have called the local police stations to make sure that we can move to the local towns. When speaking with the landlords I have found that I may pass all the requirements and all other areas but as soon as I mention anything in regards to my fiance's record and having to be on the registry the landlord tells me that suddenly someone else qualifies more for the apartment, or finds some reason that I don't fit the requirements. I am not able to pin them on discrimination completely as I haven't put my fiance's name on the application, but they know my intention.

I am not ashamed of my fiancé. He is a wonderful, loving, supportive, protective man. He is so much more than the label the government has put on him and I love him with all my heart and soul. But because of the registry I am now forced to omit him from my life in order to find a place for he and I to live and have a future. How can anyone think that this is a good thing, helpful to a return to society? What if he was in this alone and didn't have me or his family to support and encourage him? It boggles my mind at how the judgment eminates from the phone through a simple call for information on a home. I used to have all the bias about if you are convicted then you must be guilty. I have certainly learned my lesson in life. I need to help make sure everyone else learns theirs now...
