I would like to thank those of you who so far have sent me their stories. I posted on my home page that I would like to collect as many letters as I can from as many loved ones as I can so I can get a package together. All our voices together will make more noise. I still do not have nearly enough, so if you have not yet sent me your story, please do so.
Remember to also include how this has affected the your life as well. What it means to society and how unfair it is compared to other laws. The more I get the better it will be.. I also stated that this must be a first time offence and that this was an isolated incident. Please read here for all details.
Bascially from the response I get regarding the internet stings, the men involved were on the internet in adult based sites, talking to adults at first and then the undercover bringing up the conversation of a minor. In lots of cases the men stated they were not interested, but yet they were still pushed. It was not the idea of the man, it was the idea of the woman.
Not one person who's story I read had any previous indications of interest in children. No child porn, no previous email contacts, no suggestions of pedophilia.
A majority of the men had some stressful incident going on in their lives where they were more vulnerable than usual, who were seeking attention or looking for something to compensate for their loneliness. These men were not looking to go after your children. They were looking to hook up with an adult. Yes they talked some crazy shi*, but that is what is was talk. Even if they went to meet, with no history of interest in children, how can law enforcement say that they really did not believe the person on the other end of the computer to be an adult playing games?
How is it that these laws are so much different then actual child abuse cases and murder? Anyone who really takes time to read these stories would see the truth. It is all about money and making law enforcement look good by putting all the men in prison. Men who were not stalking children!!
Visit after visit I have realized more and more that people make mistakes. People do need to go to prison when they do wrong, but the punishment needs to be fair. I have learned a lot about the way the system works. I always thought that we had this great legal system. People have no clue what is going on behind the scenes. The abuse of power, what these men have to endure. It is not right. It just really blows my mind.
I am going to try to start a support forum here on my website. To be honest, I am not sure how I will work it right now. I know that when I get it up and going I may need some people to help out and be administrators. People who can help answer questions and moderate. If you would be interested in that, please contact me.
The longer we wait to speak, the more men and families will be going through this. It does not look like they are stopping these stings. Or these entrapment's!! I pray for change now.
