There will probably come a time when a cop ends up chatting with another cop. Wonder how that arrest will go.

I just want to point out the story two lines down about the raped 14-year old girl as counterpoint to this one, and present the two as proof of how irrevocably farked our society has become at handling crimes of underage and/or non-consensual sex.

Mutually jacking off to their chat logs?

kendelrio: 1. There are no women on the internet

There are lots of lonely 30-somethings with ticking biological clocks. Maybe not as hot as slutty teens, but they'll fark you, cook you dinner, and then fark you again in the desperate hope that you'll come back for a second date. If you like chubby middle aged action, the internet is a wonderful place. The teens that want to fark you are always cops (who will really fark you over).

Digitalstrange: Was I supposed to feel sorry for this guy? No matter how they tried to warm and fuzzy him up and how he was hedging his bets he was talking about banging a 14 year old. Maybe it's just that I have a teen daughter myself but I'm OK with that sting.

I'm sure there are times when the cops go too far (like the other poster mentioned about the guy too obese to leave the house, obviously he was just indulging in fantasy he could never follow through with) but this wasn't it. Yeah. hardly the most dangerous predator out there but a predator none the less

What I read before TL;DR set in, he could argue he was planning to get his foot in the door by playing daddy to both, then wedge them apart over the course of the night so he could lock the bedroom door and bang the hell out of the legal one while the underage one slept on the couch.  Everybody knows she'd be asleep from the wine coolers by 9 anyway.

And if there seems like there is anything wrong with that, you obviously have no idea what efforts and practices have proven not only successful, but necessary to get laid on the first date on the cheap.

dv-ous: miss diminutive: Do they train these officers to chat like underage teenage girls?


I used to work for my university's continuing education / adult education program.

This was back in the '90s, (Yes, I'm old) when smaller departments didn't have Uncle Sugar (DHS) throwing money at them, and high speed internet didn't go most places yet.

We had two computer labs, (Pentium 90s, baby!) which would be filled most evenings with police officers - either getting training on how to do this, or doing actual stings. I saw some of the course materials they left behind, and it included bits on communicating like a teenager.

Wow, can't say I'm surprised though. I used to chat on yahoo in my early-mid teens and the room was always full of perverts. I should've just worked for the local police, it would've paid more than babysitting.

In 2011, 43-year-old Army veteran Edwin "Trey" Gennette lived just outside Pensacola, Florida, with a pet possum and a talking Ford Mustang

Throw in Meagan Mullaney as the sassy land lord who doesn't know about the talking Mustang and you got yourself a pretty good sit com.

It sounds like government funded perv-on-perv chatting. It's not normal behavior for an adult man to want to role play as a 14 yr old girl trying to get the attention of another man. I'm pretty sure there was a time when that was a crime, too. Not sure who's protecting/molesting who. Weird.
