Back in March, which is going to be a recurring theme for a while, before FOSTA was signed into law, and before Backpage was taken down, craigslist took it upon themselves to remove the personal ads section from their website including the casual encounters section. Anyone clicking on any of the personal ad links on …

49-year-old Ian Alexander Pincombe of Las Vegas, Nevada, was recently convicted on child porn and child solicitation charges stemming from his 2014 arrest. None of the articles I found elaborated on the child porn charges, so I’m just going to focus on the child solicitation charges, and boy is there a story to those. Pincombe …

I really don’t mean to be picking on the upper Midwest today but Minnesota and Wisconsin seem to be producing all the creepers today. For example, 43-year-old Jon Mulder, of La Crosse, Wisconsin, was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl on craigslist. Police say that Mulder responded to the following ad …

I originally posted about 58-year-old Donald Tisdale of Albertville, Minnesota, here. He was arrested earlier this year for soliciting sex from an underage girl on craigslist after posting an ad that said “Who’s playing hooky from school today???” Of course it was law enforcement that was actually responding to the ad. Back in July, Tisdale …

For some reason a lot of people care more about what happens to animals than what happens to people. For example more people hate football player Michael Vick for dog fighting than those who hate Aaron Hernandez who actually murdered a man in cold blood.
