The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office in Florida arrested 22 people who thought they were meeting a 14-year-old for sex. Investigators responded to ads that people had posted looking for sex with children and posted some of their own as well. Two people who were arrested were a woman and her boyfriend.
Here’s the punchline. None of those arrested were on any kind of sex offender registry. I’m pretty sure they will be in the near future.
As usual while the article does not state it I can almost guaran-damn-tee that the ads were on the casual encounters section of craigslist. Since that section is still unmoderated by craigslist imagine how many predators are on there operating unchecked. Yet craigslist still refuses to anything about the casual encounters section like it’s some squeaky clean happy playground.
