I’ve posted about craigslist stings in Great Falls, Montana, before. It seems that their keeping it up as back in January they arrested one Rueben Friesen of Canada in one of these stings.
Rueben allegedly responded to an ad placed by investigators that said “looking for a teacher, looking for someone to teach my niece.” As you can guess the teaching implied was not for piano lessons. According to police Friesen knew that the niece in question was 10-years-old. He was arrested when he showed up at the meeting place which was a local gas station. He has recently pleaded not guilty to felony attempted sexual abuse of children.
As I’ve said before if police are posing as parents or other guardians willing to turn out their kids to child molesters that means that actual parents and guardians are doing it as well. Hell, we have enough stories here to know that it’s going on. Since craigslist and their reliance on ‘community policing’ won’t get the job done it’s up to the real police.
Police in Great Falls, Montana along with the Department of Homeland Security arrested five men during an online sting using craigslist. Investigators placed ads on craigslist and other sites that posed as a woman looking to have a man teach her 12-year-old niece ‘become a woman’. Even in the wilds of Montana I’m surprised they only got 5.
Those arrested were Edward Burk Dupuis, Zachary Beston, Perry Gamache, Albert Stuart Ross, and Miguel F. Gardipee. The men allegedly believed they were there to have sex with a 12-year-old girl, three of whom brought condoms with them.
It seems that the DHS has been really busy helping catch these creeps lately. That’s what I like my tax dollars going to.
Speaking of which how bad is your website when the DHS has to get involved to try to curtail the amount of child predators contained within? This should be a sign to you craigslist but I doubt that you’ll heed it.
UPDATE 7/8/2013: It seems I spoke to soon as a 6th man has been charged in the Great Falls sting. That man would be 33-year-old Canadian, Thomas Anderson Quinton.
What’s worse than an alleged father that leaves his daughter in a freezing car? How about one that leaves his daughter in a freezing car so he could possibly knock boots with a 13-year-old?
That’s what allegedly happened in Great Falls, Montana. 22-year-old Jeramey Sheeler left his 4-year-old daughter in the car while he went to see a 13-year-old girl. Since it was Montana the temperature at the time was -14. That’s 14 degrees below zero. That’s -26 Celsius.
When the girl woke up two hours later she got out of the car and started knocking on doors looking for the sperm donor. The next door neighbors let her in and called police. The article states that Sheeler was in bed with the 13-year-old but ‘nothing sexual’ was going on.
When police searched Sheeler’s car they also found a bowl with pot residue in it. Not a cereal bowl either. You burnouts know what I’m talking about.
So this girl has an alleged neglectful burnout pedophile for a father. Again, once you have kids your priorities are supposed to change. You’re supposed to stop doing drugs and banging teenage girls. Well, really you’re not supposed to do those things anyway.
