😖 Ugh.😫 Another “sex sting”

This release is intended to inform the public of the number of individuals arrested for attempting to solicit underage children online and the consequences that go with these actions,” the Fort Worth Police Department said.

No, the release is intended to self congratulate and claim what great protectors they are while accomplishing absolutely nothing.

How many of these ” minors” were actually minors and not some male or female cop pretending to be a minor? Stings such as cops pretending to be minors should be illegal.

Any responsible adult or anyone that has children knows that A 15-16 old kid is not interested in hooking up with some random creepy old man they met online, 90% of teenagers have friends some more then others but they all have friends, whether it’s somebody from school or someone in their neighborhood or a family member their confiding in somebody.
The other 10% are kids that come from broken homes with parents on drugs, that are neglected and easily manipulated and groomed by these type of individuals, which is very sad and unfortunate.
Good work by the Texas Police Department for getting these 11 men off the streets and hopefully teaching them a really good lesson

Every time I see these sting operations I think the same thing. Why aren’t they taking the time to run sting operations by posing as adults trying to find the under 18 kids who are searching for encounters with adults (at least where it comes to online adult oriented sites). Posing as a child to catch adults might catch some adults that would commit a sex offense but the fact of the matter is that if a child is on that site they are going to end up having a sexual relationship with an adult if they want to therefore saving the child from nothing. Sting operations like this save zero children from being a victim of a sex offense. Therefore there is little societal value in wasting limited resources performing these kinds of law enforcement operations. The only benefit is for law enforcements pockets.

My offense was not a sting operation but I don’t see any value in conducting them.

How about go down to the border where real children are being trafficked and molested along the dangerous journey to come to this BS country .
