FL: Police lured innocent men into online sex stings and seized their property, records show

Police posed as underage teens online to lure men into breaking the law as part of an apparent revenue scheme by Florida law enforcement agencies, according to an investigation of newly released public records.

Emails and other online communications analyzed by WTSP-TV revealed that many of the men who were eventually arrested were not interested in meeting children but were instead seeking adult sex partners – until they encountered undercover officers. Full Article

  1. Tired of hiding

    For lazy Florida police it is easier to hide behind a computer and create crime rather than go into the real world (which would require actual work) to do their jobs.

    These policemen are doing nothing to protect anyone and most of them are probably actually secretly trapping men into doing exactly what they themselves desire to do…so what better way to break the law than do it from behind a badge! These people dishonour their actual sworn duty to “serve and protect” and give those few who work in law enforcement with the intent of really making a positive difference!

    Those Florida law enforcers are in reality lazy, sexually perverted, and frankly REAL criminal – Shame on them!

  2. Eric Knight

    I’ll be blunt. If Janice were in Florida, she could easily represent many of these VICTIMS of police BRUTALITY (I don’t mince words; this is EXACTLY what it is…POLICE BRUTALITY) in a major lawsuit against the department. By not releasing the results of investigations, this opens up the department to so many constitutional violations it makes one’s head spin.

    In fact, there is probable cause to actually bring CRIMINAL charges against the department sting members. This goes beyond sovereign immunity, and should be prosecuted to its fullest extent by a State or special prosecutor from outside of the region (not just jurisdiction), or even a Federal charge.

    • Q

      Kinda of makes one wonder what’s the matter with the attorneys in that state. No balls? No backbone? no courage to stand up to injustice?

  3. jim

    Puts a spot light on who the real criminals are.

  4. G4Change

    cops = criminals on patrol

  5. Ron

    I don’t want to sound like I believe in most government conspiracy theories, but this situation reminds me of Ruby Ridge Waco and the Delorian Drug Case.

    • Timmr

      Ignorance and corruption often looked planned, but I believe it’s just simple, but widespread incompetence. I wouldn’t give these people credit for having the intelligence to pull off a conspiracy.

  6. Double A

    Sometimes when I read an article that is tied to the state of Florida I suddenly feel happy to reside in California. One of the things I always tell myself to help me get through tough situations is “someone out there has it rougher than you”. This holds true for the registrants and other citizens of Florida. I could be wrong but they have it pretty rough over there.

    • Nicholas Maietta

      I always advise any registered citizen who is thinking about visiting Florida: “Do not go there. Ever.”

      I always advise any registered citizen who lives in Florida. “Leave now and don’t go back.”

    • Tired of hiding

      I can tell you from experience that it is. My so-called “offense” happened in the sunshine state aka Florida. I was forced to move a number of times. I actually encountered more problems with citizens than law enforcement if you can believe that (although they were a-holes as well).

      I was there prior to the residence restrictions so I could live anywhere (at that time) that I could get approved for. I managed to live in a few places that really didn’t do background checks…they just saw a nice guy with his long term partner and usually having a Chihuahua was the problem!

      There would always be one busybody who would consider themselves the I don’t know, the watchdogs of the building and in one case put up photocopies of my “rap” sheet they printed from the Florida website. In another instance someone in the building sent envelopes to every apartment (including mine) with a printout of my online rap sheet (of course, with no return address hiding in the dark like the roaches that type are)!

      I moved out of Florida and to California the very week that they passed all of the residence restrictions and have not been back there since then but we all know how terrible it has become and has simply continued to go downhill there since.

      So yes, if you want to compare bad situations it is MUCH worse trying to exist in Florida!
