Dateline story on internet predators
Last night I watched the recap on the Dateline story of sexual predators who prey on-line, and I've seen another one of the episodes they've done. First off, I just cannot believe what this world has become, that they caught over a 100 men in 9 days in different cities with this sting. And several of them were already convicted of this in the past, and how many of them were teachers, or coaches, and one was even a rabbi! One brought his SON - who looked like he was younger than five (the phone rang at this point and I missed most of this guy) with him.
My BF and I got into a discussion about entrapment and tricking these men into this...I did see the point, but at the same time, I really didn't care less. Any man (or woman, for that matter) who sends a child pornographic photos of themself via the internet deserves what they get.
What is going on in this world? Has this always been this bad, only now we are more exposed to it because of the internet? Anytime I see something like this, it makes me so scared to even think about having kids. I know you can't protect them from everything, but it seems like in this day and age, there is so much more we can't protect them from.
Sigh. Sorry about this. It just blew my mind and I had to vent!
