Geoffrey Portway, 40, was also ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution to five children whose images were found in online chats by Portway, according to court documents. Portway, a citizen of the United Kingdom

Well, there you go.  EVERYBODY knows that the British suck when it comes to cuisine...

What do you think his sentence should be?
 
2013-09-18 04:13:40 PM
It's worse than that.

All the sick f*cks who were chatting with him about it online are still out there.

Probably not all on Fark....

I'm going to hope that subby meant "free from his mortal coil" and not free to walk the streets.

He didn't have a basement.  And only liked the taste of teens.

I remember in high school there was a "kids, you can't beat 'em" campaign.

I remember getting handed a sticker with that phrase and promptly cutting out the "'t b" so it read:

"Kids, you can eat 'em"

Exactly.  Are we being punished for things we want to do but haven't actually done?

1. The dude is set to begin a 26 year prison sentence.
2. If he survives being a creepy pedo in prison, which he probably won't, he'll be under lifetime supervision.
3. You can't imprison someone for a crime (in this case murder and a whole lot of other nasty stuff) that they might do.

All those photos... it's the kind of evidence you'd expect to find in a movie or something.  I mean, it seriously looks like he was framed by a B-move director or something.  Castrating tools, murder dungeon, butchery set...

... and then the last photo is of a router and a bottle of Clorox.

His house was full of child pornography...that is illegal by itself.

From what I gather, the solicitation to commit violence (chatting about eating children) was a misdemeanor.  He got the 26 years in prison for possessing thousands of child porn pics.

But the media likes to make it sound like he got 26 years for talking about eating children and setting up a dungeon, because ratings.
 
2013-09-18 04:21:18 PM
The very thought I this guy gives me the creeps, but if we start locking people up for crimes they might commit that is a slippery slope. Might get him on threats but it isn't illegal to build a dungeon. Creepy, but not illegal.
 
2013-09-18 04:21:31 PM
Wait, is it normal to deport AFTER the sentence? I thought the point of deportation is to make the criminal some other country's problem?

I store a bottle of store-brand bleach in my apartment. Does this mean that I am less of a threat to the public than is Mr. Portway, or am I an even greater threat?

I don't think this will be something to worry about if he gets put into general population
 
2013-09-18 04:26:09 PM
When the government begins regulating soundproof basement dungeons, baby coffins, handcuffs, and deluxe butchering sets, only criminals will have soundproof basement dungeons, baby coffins, handcuffs and deluxe butchering sets!!!

Wait. What?

And I'm fine with pedos being locked up for what they have done.  He will most likely be shown early on exactly how highly pedos are thought of in prison.  I just don't want to see us start thinking about tacking on life sentences for thought crimes.  And I know that nobody was really suggesting that.  At least I don't think they were...

SuperNinjaToad: Do you feel comfortable him being your neighbor?


There's this dude in my neighborhood who never seems to do anything but lurk in his front yard and smoke all day. He gives me the willies. Clearly he should be imprisoned for making me uncomfortable.
 
2013-09-18 04:30:23 PM
This guy is huge creepy.  However, 26 years kind of sounds like a long damn time for having and distributing child porn.  I would think the largest sentences would be reserved for people making child porn.

Make no mistake, I have no use for people that are involved with child porn.

I do think it is legal to build a dungeon in your house, fill it with evil shiat, and fantasize and/or talk about having people down there.  Doing it is the illegal part.

I am all about the monitoring his ass forever if and when he is released.

Now, I am going to go back and look at that slide show and see what kind of nightmares it gives me.

He's being locked up for child pornography. His cannibal dungeon is being taken into consideration when determining his sentence, but he is being punished for the actual crimes he actually did commit.

If I didn't know about his thoughts to kill and eat children and his penchant for child porn?  Sure.

If I did know about those things, I'd probably turn him in though.

It was more than just thoughts.. dude had massive collection of child porn and cannibalistic type reading materials. Also had the infrastructure built i.e dungeon etc.

Cagey B: 2. If he survives being a creepy pedo in prison, which he probably won't, he'll be under lifetime supervision.


When I used to work at a prison, there was a catholic priest pedo in minimum security who never suffered from it.  You're right that it's kind of the lower end of the Totem Pole O' Crime, but I think people imagine the death rate for these guys is waaaaay higher than it really is.

/might vary by state, though

He also pleaded guilty to:

Solicitation to commit a crime of violence

Apparently, it wasn't just fantasy.

Sounds like this guy had every intention of carrying this out. That's more than a thought crime.

I've got one just like it I carry around in my pick-up truck.  I've used it many times and the knives hold their edge well.  The saw isn't that great.  For cutting through bone, I prefer bolt cutters.

/deer, not people.  ;)
