    Jerk.

    If he's guilty, of course.

    On the Internet, no one knows you're a cop. :D

    My High School locker partner and former coworker in the Bloodmines of Boulder got popped in a similar sting a couple of months ago. While hitting on a nubile young thing is way cool when you're 14, its way icky when you're 40. :barf:

    Not only did he try to grab some underage girl off the net, but he used his real name and Homeland Security office and cell phone numbers.

    How many other astronomically stupid dirtbags do we have working for us in Homeland Security?



    Nah... This can't be.

    Nobody is really that stupid, right?

    It's gotta be set up or something, right?

    Right...?

    :uhoh:

    Glad he got caught. If he's guilty, I hope he goes to a REAL prison to become someone's special friend. I still have the rather un-PC opinion that the best "treatment" for pedophiles is best delivered in a caliber 9mm or higher. Before they take away some kid's childhood.

    Scary to think this is what's supposed to be helping keep us safe, though. :barf:

    Again? They just busted one of those guys on TV not long ago for more or less the same thing (it wasn't a girl). Haven't they had enough time since creation of the agency to dream up things for them to do and stay out of trouble? What do these agents do? Was creation of this agency just a feel good publicity stunt like gun control? I have never crossed paths with one. Sounds like that's probably a good thing.

    If we discovered that they used data from their job, I would absolutely wet my pants with laughter.

    Then I would feel a little sick.

    Hi.
    I'm not sure I understand your comment: but then I'm not from there.
    Your Dept. of Homeland Security has possession of what sort of data, exactly?
    Is it of an extent that would allow a predator to locate a potential victim?
    On the net? Just asking.

    Thanks.

    Horge, the way things are set up now, the DHS has access to just about any information that is available anywhere. They have been given, both in law and in practice, authority to do whatever they "need" to do to protect homeland security. It sounds like this guy was in more of a PR position than an operational position. I wonder how much access he had. I'm pretty sure that guys who are in operational positions can get just about ANYTHING. All for our safety.

    My question is always, who is protecting us from the protectors?

    "Homeland Security" is now a pick-up line? This has all the twisted kinkiness of Germany in the '30s.

    Horge,
    The DHS (Dept. Homeland Security) has access to vast amounts of personal data on US Citizens and people living in the USA. The man in question may not have gotten info on the "girl" he was talking to from his duties, but it may not be out of the question that he could get it.

    Ah yes, one of the now millions of men of steel whom we can be certain will not abuse their powers.

    It does seem though that if he was not set up and framed, he is extremely dumb.

    Ah yes, more (do we really need more) examples of the sickness and corruption that exists in government.


    Why do some people insist on holding authorities in a higher regard? As if they are morally superior, have higher ethics, or respect for the law and decency?



    Folks, THESE are the people that run this nation. These are the (types) people that make laws, policies and decisions.


    This is why freedom is almost dead.

    I don't hold authorities in a higher regard. I DO hold them to higher standards of conduct and think that they should face stiffer penalties for certain crimes.

    Ah, the Internet:

    Where Men are Men,
    Boys are Boys,
    And 14 year old Girls are FBI Agents!

    What is ironic is that actual 14 year old girls dont appear to be soliciting sex on the internet and getting picked up by pedophiles. Rather, FBI agents appear to be soliciting sex with adults and inducing them to cross state lines for sex.

    I cant say this for sure, but I am 90 percent sure I was agressively solicited by a 13 year old female FBI agent a few years ago. I told her she should be studying instead of having sex. But many men have been caught by this technique.

    My point is that the FBI isnt really fixing a problem, it is more like they are using a perception of a problem as an excuse to create criminals. Real pedophiles (around here at least) appear to be molesting relatives and neighbors rather than people online, which is definitely not a problem for federal police. Also, any pedophile sophisticated enough to go online is probably sophisticated enough to know better than to think that the person on the other end of the line is really who they say they are.

    If the story pans out, it sounds like the guy wanted to do to a youngster what the rest of the government is doing to the USA . . .

    1940: "Von't you pleaze kommenzie mit me, Fraulein . . . I vork vor der Geheime Staatspolize, und I vill show you a gut time mit der schnapps und der muzik und den . . . "

    2006: "Why don't you come with me little girl, I work for The Department of Homeland Security, and . . . "

    I'm afraid t's not just in Homeland Security . . . :(

    And still, a lot of the Looney Left doesn't understand why many of us mistrust "The Gubmint"...

    "Who Will Guard The Guards?"...as in if these are the people who are supposed to be making us safe and secure, what are they REALLY doing???

    Other than surfing for porn and kiddies

    Geez, guys, the moron was just a deputy press secretary in the public affairs department ... no doubt some former journalist whose job was simply to edit news releases for DHS. These perverts are all over; you want to make statements such as
    you don't understand the real problem. Internet porn solicitation has nothing to do with why we shouldn't trust the government. These perverts exist in all levels and all occupations in our society, not just government agencies. Why make this into a cause celebre against DHS when there are legitimate reasons to question the agency?
