(CBC)   The Department of Homeland Security catches four pedophiles in a 19-month long sting using a fake tourism website that portrays Canada as a safe haven for pedophiles. For some reason, Canada has a problem with this   (cbc.ca) divider line 208

Well, good for them in nabbing those sickos, that being said...how much money was spent in catching and prosecuting four people?

FTFA: Moskowitz noted that the Precious Treasure website used symbols and coded language known in child-sex circles to draw in predators.

WTF? Special symbols? Like the Jesus fish symbol? Seriously, what are these symbols?

Why do you need to know, sicko? I'm reporting you to DHS.

Deal.

We don't think you're a sanctuary for kiddie diddlers. No one in their right mind thinks that, which is why a bunch of people who felt a sexual attraction to children thought that it was true.

I'm so glad we spent money on a threat so immense and immediate.

Not to throw chum in the waters, but To Catch a Predator managed to fill a demanding network schedule like clockwork, serving up a perp a week regardless of due process. Either the Feds were napping or NBC was, er, fudging their results.

/okay, so I chummed the waters

"However, that was some concern of ours because we're certainly not trying to attempt to suggest Canada is the place to come to for that type of criminal behaviour."

So what type of criminal "behaviour" is Canada the place for?

I thought pedophiles went to Thailand for this sort of thing. I wonder how many they would have caught if they had used a country renown for its sex trade instead of a fake country like Canada.

Site got 140k visits - they arrested 4 people. I'm sure none of the other 139,996 will travel to Ontario for any reason. I can see why Canada is pissed.

They misspelled "fantasies".

Also.. "The fake website was outed by The Smoking Gun as a government sting..."

Thanks DHS for pointing pedophiles at our country and our children.

I suppose that now I'm just going to have to treat every American tourist I meet as a pedophile, just to be safe. If you're American, not a pedophile, and visiting Canada and somebody comes running up and kicks you in the junk, we suggest you take it up with DHS.

And, as always, we're sorry for the inconvenience.
 
2011-10-10 02:59:26 PM
Kiddy fiddlers are now an issue of "Homeland Security"???

I mean, yeah, great that they were caught and all, but if we're not even vaguely pretending that DHS has anything to do with homeland security any more, can we change the name to something meaningful?
 
2011-10-10 02:59:26 PM
Say what you want about pedophiles, but they do slow down in school zones.

This is BS, that time and money could have been useful elsewhere.

Wow, nearly 2 years, a website and 4 arrests. Now THAT is efficiency.

Yeah. Why is DHS worried about pedophiles?
 
2011-10-10 03:00:57 PM
the department of homeland security is overstepping it's intended purpose.

pedophiles are in the jurisdiction of parents and their firearms.

if pedophiles are active in human trafficking, or using the internet to distribute information or media related to child abuse, get the FBI involved.

if every parent took responsibility into their own hands, there wouldn't be any problem.

DHS would have you believe that you can't be trusted.

DHS is evil.

This.

Why is Homeland Security even running this kind of investigation?
 
2011-10-10 03:02:40 PM
Just... wow.
They caught 4 guys in 19 months. So essentially, they only caught the most absolutely and utterly stupid.

Now THAT was a waste of money.

FTFA: "The fake website was outed by The Smoking Gun "

This time, I think that TSG really could have restrained themselves....

For all the whining about how and such they did this... I'd rather they do it if it means getting bad people off the street.

Petulant Dwarf: Wow, nearly 2 years, a website and 4 arrests. Now THAT is efficiency.


That's what I'm thinking.

It's great and all that these pervs are off the street, but there's got to be another way to do it that makes more economical sense.

Most people don't know that one of the names originally considered for DHS was the Department of Extra-Constitutional Law Enforcement, but DECLE didn't roll off the tongue like DHS does.

Hmm all of my fantasy's are owning my English.


Anyway, not everybody wants to have their hometown suddenly become an internet sensation for being a vacation spot for pedophiles! Of course they'd complain! If a location is the hub for all the pedo's fantasies, then that location's government, police, and even its citizens have something wrong going on. It gives them a very bad image that might scare away potential businesses or actual tourists who don't want to fark little kids as a form of recreation.

If the situation was flipped, I can't say that as an American I'd really care.

How many people here are still skeeved out by the vague Spetsnaz/Stasi feel of the phrase "Homeland Security"?

Here are the Presidential Directives for the HSD: http://www.dhs.gov/xabout/laws/editorial_0607.shtm

So, if this operation cost any money that was taken out of HSD funding, it's misappropriation. The FBI should be pretty upset about this since it's their money HSD is basically infringing on.

Maybe a test run for something else?

If some other country did something like this and used the U.S, would Americans have a problem with this?

Did you hear the one about the ghey Ontarian forensic scientist? he was fired for sucking down a few cold cocks at work.
