39-year-old Brian Watson of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, has been arrested for allegedly soliciting for a 12-year-old girl to have sex with on craigslist. Watson’s ad, that was noticed by police reportedly said he was looking for “mothers who were looking for a guy to teach their daughter about the joys of sex.” Nothing too subtle about that one, huh? But I digress.
Murfreesboro police responded to Watson’s ad, posing as an interested mother with a 12-year-old daughter. The meeting took place at a local fast food restaurant, naturally. The kicker is when Watson showed up for the meeting, he had his 9-month-old baby in tow. I shudder to think what would have happened with the baby if this wasn’t a sting. How do we know that Watson hasn’t done anything like this before? How do we know the baby hasn’t been molested? Thankfully, CPS is investigating as well. Did I forget to mention he’s also a school employee?
Again, this isn’t even taking into account that craigslist allows these ads to fester on their site for who knows how long, and they do nothing to stop it. Not to mention, every time the cops catch one of these scumbags, it makes me wonder how many are carrying out these meetings with people willing to turn out their kids to child molesters.
But hey, you once found a cool couch on craigslist so it can’t be that bad, right?
