How I Became a Monster

Hello. I’m a monster. Not just any kind of monster. Vampires and werewolves get to star in movies. They’re monsters, but they can also be heroes. I’m the worst kind of monster. I’m a sex offender. And the worst kind of sex offender. I’m a pedophile.

Don’t worry. I’m locked up. I’ve been in a federal penitentiary for almost two years and I’ll be here for at least another seven. No time off for good behavior. Not for monsters like me. When I get out, I’ll be on lifetime probation. That means that every couple of weeks, for the rest of my life, I’ll have to report to a parole officer and tell them what I’m doing. They can tell me where to live. They can tell me where I can’t live, or work or go. And everywhere I live my neighbors will get flyers warning them about me. If they miss the flyer, a handy database is there to show the address where I live. That makes it easy for anyone to find me and tell me what they think of me. Anyone. It’s perfectly legal to deny me an apartment, or service. You’re probably thinking that I deserve it. Being a monster and all.  So… want to know what I did? Full Article

This is what happened to you – your government attacked you and they have ruined your life.

“The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals.
Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them.
One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for man to live without breaking laws.”
– Ayn Rand, 1957

“The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.” — Tacitus, Roman senator
and historian (A.D. c.56-c.115)

“Once you grant the government some new power or authority, it becomes exponentially more difficult to roll it back. Regardless of how little value a program or power has been shown to have (such as the Section 215 dragnet interception of call records in the United States, which the government’s own investigation found never stopped a single imminent terrorist attack despite a decade of operation), once it’s a sunk cost, once dollars and reputations have been invested in it, it’s hard to peel that back.” – Edward Snowden Citation source This could easily be said of Megan’s Law and the… Read more »

It’s beyond me how the sentences are meted out…the selective unfairness. Seems that now internet crimes have become the “crime d’jour”, the easiest to prosecute, the easiest to convict. This is simple entrapment, the begging, pleading and cajoling by the police to get a person to do what they’d normally not do. The excessive bail, the effed up “deal” . I know, been there, done it. This really hurts to read how the police have created yet another criminal, how it’s been sensationalized and how they’re applauded for such great police investigative work. I was lucky, got probation only, but… Read more »

Everyone needs to beware of these tactics (by police) not only in the CP/internet activities. I have had kids that would come my home and work, either wanted just to hang-out or wanted sexual favors, of course, I did not entertain them. Since, I did not know these kids and their boldness was alarming, I am sure they were decoys of the PD.

Paranoid…NO As I have stated, we are at WAR after being unjustly ATTACKED by the very government our taxes have paid to PROTECT us! This is nothing less than a war on individuals rights by the government and it is totally un-American and unjust. This MUST be counterattacked with the legal system and not level of “peaceful” protest will change anything! These people are EVIL and that is the ONLY word strong enough to represent their TRUE NATURE! They have not morals they have no pride and they themselves are projecting onto innocent citizens exactly the sort of PERVERSE things… Read more »

Another life thrown on the heap and cut short of promise. Just imagine all those student loans accumulated that he’ll never be able to pay off because the government has deemed his as unemployable when he gets out.

Also, just wait until CSI: Cyber premiers. This guy is going to be the poster boy for the stories they will run along with CP and other related Internet “grooming” nonsense.

“I’m a pedophile.”

WRONG! WRONG!! WRONG!!!!!!!!!!
If that’s the case, then ALL CANADIANS ARE PEDOPHILES as 14 was the age of consent in Canada until a few years ago.

I’m SO SICK of the P-word being used out of context.

I agree that this man used very poor judgment in all of this but entrapment and bullying by authorities of any rank should be a crime. Criminals come in all colors, shapes and ranks. It is hard in this day in age to be a young person and do what young people did not so long ago, without being arrested and put into juvenile facilities or prisons. The excessive laws mean that the corporate world and corruption is well and thriving in the world-hence all the prisons they keep building. It’s all about money unfortunately. And where there is money… Read more »

“Criminals come in all colors, shapes and ranks.”

Exactly. Put another way, “Criminals come in all types of uniforms.”

Yep it used to be that a girl was lucky to have a experienced older man as her first sexual experience. Someone tbat was gentler and more compassionate so as to make her experience more pleasurable and meaningful. Just read the series clan of the cave bear by jean auel about prehistoric man and it is supposed to be historically accurate. For generations upon generations grown men have married and had sexually experiences with young Edmonton as soon as they became sexually mature and in the animal world every species has males that are attracted to the females as soon… Read more »

It seems like this whole thing that destroyed this man’s life and career was manufactured because there wasn’t a problem until the police created the problem.

No. No. No. Anyone who supports cybercrime teams using these tactics is the real monster. Want to know what true evil looks like? The people who turned this man into a criminal are excellent examples of what pure evil looks like. Very few of these cases end up involving individuals who were at risk of doing anything remotely sexual with someone under the age of consent. I seem to remember a law or two or more about it being illegal for minors (even pretend ones) to proposition other minors or adults for sex or alcohol on the internet. If anyone… Read more »
