Wow, going to jail as a convicted pedophile AND an Ex-Cop? His bung will be the size of the Holland tunnel if he ever makes it out alive.

FTFA: There are some new details that a lot of people will probably find disturbing.

They lied.

# Patrick is accused of having sexual chats with the decoy in a chat room on Yahoo! The chats were explicit involving sexual acts.

well no sh*t.

# According to the warrant, Patrick also e-mailed a picture of his nude genitals to the girl.


OMG, not his nude genitals! When most people send photos of there genitals, they never send nude genitals.

When you say a cop is accused of bad things, AND you say most people will find it very disturbing; you gotta do better than that.

Nope- sending a picture of your junk across state lines to someone you think is under 16 is illegal.

I'm a HUGE fan of Chris Hansen. I write him letters all the time and send him gifts to his office at NBC. I also spend a good deal of time in chat rooms and meeting minors. I've been arrested several times, the cops never believe me when I tell them I could care less about the minor, I just want to meet Chris Hansen. One of these days Chris, we will cross paths. And it will be beautiful.

I just had a wierd thought, isnt this a victimless crime? No 14 year old virtues were harmed, it was always a cop on the other end, so no victim...

yeah still a crime, no problem there, but no victim...

Is there a reason other than overexposure that there hasn't been another To Catch A Predator lately? I loved not only the predator series, but the iPod series as well. The whole idea was good entertainment.

The scary thing with this is that it's only the stupid ones that get caught. The smart ones know that everyone in any chat room is an undercover cop (or could be). (Hi, Sgt. Studenko!)

FTA

...Patrick also e-mailed a picture of his nude genitals to the girl.

Investigators say this went on for a couple of week and the officer made repeated contact with the 14-year-old girl, apparently having no idea it was actually all part of that undercover sting.

Patrick made plans to meet with the 14-year-old in Virgina, where she said she lived


I think they really mean "decoy" every time they write "the girl" or "the 14-year-old girl" or "14-year-old".

The writing is a crime.

The other guy is trying to get into politics, mr. knife.

Seriously though, I'd rather have reporters doing their ambush crap on entertaining topics than using it to pry black ops data from officials.

The main reason why it hasn't been on air is because of what happened in the last one they did. A man they ensnared in the trap committed suicide by gun right then and there when they tried to arrest him. They got sued, big time for it. Both NBC and Perverted Justice. This article says it all: http://wizbangpop.com/2007/07/24/to-catch-a-predator-sued-after-suspect-committs -suicide.php

True enough I enjoyed it too, DeathByGeekSquad. But once they start offing themselves, game over. For them...muhahaha!

Not a non-story, but an overinflated one. The news station is pissed because the judge in the case banned cameras from the arraignment and now a cranky news director wants revenge. Way to take it national, boys now QQ more.

I'd be curious as to what chat rooms the adults and "children" are hanging out in where they hook up like this.

Is it a teen oriented chat room, or one of the adult relationships chat room? If it's an adult room that the "child" came into could it be considered entrapment? Could a defendant claim that he thought the "child" was actually an adult pretending to be a child for role-play?

Pedophile?

for going after a 14 year old?

Sorry, that ain't pedophillia.

What the guy did is seriously messed up for a lot of reasons, but by 14 girls tend to have done the puberty thing already. They have boobs, extra hair, and raging hormones. Girls at that age were often getting married off not too terribly long ago.

Actually, 14 years old is still a child. We're no longer in a society that marries 14 year olds to 30 year olds. Thank Goodness. I lost the v-card at 14 to a 16 year old, and even though I was sexually active, there was no doubt in my mind that the 25-year olds trying to chat me up where the textbook definition of "skeezy" and dangerous.

No adult in their right mind wants to have a balanced mental and sexual relationship with a 14 year old of either gender. If you want to debate the ethics of it, perhaps you should talk to someone from a country that accepts that sort of thing. Because it won't ever be hunky-dory over here.

Based on what? The guy never showed up at the meeting place. Are you sure this isn't something you wish to believe, therefore we should shoot the guy?

How many 14 year olds a year get on a computer and meet old guys for sex in real life? I'm not protecting this loser, but where is the crime? Where is the 14 year old girl the law protected?

What if a 14 year old boy posed as a 28 year old cop on the internet (happens in Chicago) and he sent pics of himself to a 28 year old cop pretending to be a 14 year old girl. Who gets arrested?

They guy holding the child porn, right?

This isn't a "thought crime", give me a break. This is a lame argument, and I really don't hope lawmakers start picking up this attitude.

It may be a "victimless crime" but it's a preventative measure and it's very common for law enforcement. They have women pose as prostitutes or men pose as Johns, another victimless crime by those standards. We have cops who pose as drug dealers and buyers also. Obviously when they bust one of these people, it's usually not the first time they solicited a prostitute or purchased drugs, just like it's probably not the first time these perps have met a minor online.

Couldn't he simply claim he knew she wasn't under 16 the whole time? That this was a "fantasy" he presumed to be communicating and the picture (if it's even his junk) was part of the fantasy?

I'm not defending anyone here, but it does seem like there was no crime... and to the person who mentioned cops posing as prostitutes, you're talking about actual contact: A guy in his car cruising for hookers and asking propositioning, in real life, a real live hooker.

That's not what this guy did. This guy sent a picture of junk over the Internets (which is a series of tubes filled with pictures of junk).

I don't see this as being a crime. He is guilty of bad taste and nothing more.

THIS

There is no doubt that an adult sending pictures of his genitals to a child, having explicit conversations with said child and planning to meet a child for sex, is a pedophile. If any of you don't think there is anything wrong with this, YOU should get some help immediately.

Correct, he didn't. He made plans to but looks like he chickened out at the last minute and the investigation ends. Maybe one little shred of consciousness in him.
