Details are sketchy ion this one but investigators in South Carolina arrested 25-year-old Henry F. Borgeson of Myrtle Beach for allegedly using craigslist to solicit sex from a minor. Since you’re reading this here you can safely assume that the minor in question was actually the Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office.
I’m going to assume that police were the ones who placed the ad on craigslist since the arrest is being touted as a sting.
I could probably also safely assume that the ad placed by police was not flagged by the community policing that craigslist is so fond of telling us about. Because once again this is the type of clientele craigslist has in the personals and casual encounters section.
As I keep saying just because craigslist shut down the adult/erotic services sections doesn’t mean that craigslist is clean by any stretch of the imagination. Now it seems like the go to website for child predators looking for somebody to offer them a victim.
Craigslist needs to moderate these sections but most people would rather act that crimes like this aren’t actually happening.
