Creepy ChatsMarch 7th, 2007 by josh farley
For this Sunday’s edition, I am at work on a story about the new world of internet sex crimes — and how law enforcement is working undercover to lure predators before they strike online.
I thought I’d give those of you who read the blog a preview of what’s coming. This so-called “new frontier” of internet crimes is a scary one. To give you an example, I’ve posted below an actual chat log between a Kitsap County man in his 20s and a 12-year-old girl.
(Note: This is an actual excerpt from a MySpace chat between a 25-year-old Bremerton man and a real 12-year-old Kitsap County female, not a member of law enforcement.
Since MySpace doesn’t allow anyone under 14 to have an account, the girl had posted her age as 100 to disguise her real age. The man had apparently viewed the girl’s MySpace home page.)
man: u don’t look like no 100 year old … lol
(The two chat back and forth and the girl says she is 14-years-old, the man reports he is 25-years-old.)
man: o damn is righ was plainin to ask u out tonight … lol (he then discloses to her where he lives).
girl: will I was looking for just hanging out and some booty calls u would get in trouble cuz im a minor … lol
man: lol prolly right bout the trouble, but who says that would stop me, who says i dont like trouble? … lol
man: so, any luck finding a booty call?
(girl says she has no way to drive anywhere.)
man: well what if a guy had a car and could get 2 u?
(girl says she would need a babysitter for siblings)
man: well cant ur sis watch her? I could pick u up and have you back by 11 or 12
(girl says she can’t meet him)
man: that’s to bad I was looking fwd to breaking the law with u tonight (many times) … lol just was well though I guess
