Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have arrested Dale Lamont Williams for allegedly soliciting a 15-year-old boy for sex through craigslist. Police there say that Williams posted an ad on craigslist looking for sex with someone young. When the 15-year-old asked Williams if he was ok with the boy’s age Williams was said to respond with…
“As long as you can carry yourself like an adult when you get here and the vibe is right. I’m cool.”
Williams then instructed the boy on how to get to his residence by bus. It’s always by bus with some creepers.
If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time you should know by now that the 15-year-old boy was actually a detective who is part of Wisconsin’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. It turns out that Williams is a registered sex offender who was wanted in Illinois for failure to register. Wow, another sex offender who re-offended. What are the odds? And he used craigslist too. This story seems so unlikely. Ok, that’s enough sarcasm for now.
It really should come as no surprise that a registered sex offender used craigslist to find his next victim. They know that craigslist itself does nothing to prevent these type of ads from being posted.
I originally posted about Todd “King Tut” Carter here.
He’s the pimp from Milwaukee, Wisconsin who pimped for over 2 decades and was busted for pimping out underage girls on craigslist.
It turns out he has also sired 16 children that he owes a cubic assload of child support to.
Anyway he’s been sentenced to 25 years behind bars on child prostitution charges.
Stories like this need to be given more publicity as the scum that dare prostitute children need to be made more aware of the consequences. And on the flip side of this these crimes should come with a mandatory life sentence.
This murder actually took place in October of 2008 but since it happened in the ‘flyover country’ of Milwaukee, Wisconsin it never cracked the national media. Even I didn’t hear of this one until now.
Anyway 21-year-old Tammi LaFave was sentenced to 20 years behind bars for her part in the murder of 32-year-old Haroon Khan.
Khan was trying to sell his car on craigslist. LaFave and her boyfriend, Travis Zoellick, went to meet Khan about his car. Instead of buying his car Zoellick and LaFave kidnapped Khan, took him to Watertown, WI where Zoellick stabbed Khan to death.
LaFave said that she was in fear of Zoellick as to why she was so complicit in the crime. The judge and jury would hear no part of that. Let’s go to the judge…
“You drove all the way to Watertown in a separate car, with a cell phone. You could have called your mother, your father, your friends, and explained to them, I’m in a situation, what can I do? But you did nothing,” Judge Carl Ashley said.
Zoellick took the coward’s way out by shooting himself when police came to his house to question him.
I want to say this is murder #12 connected to craigslist. I’ve honestly lost count.
A 15-year-old runaway girl from Onalaska, Wisconsin was found in Milwaukee prostituting herself on craigslist.
Milwaukee police found that girl’s ad on Craigslist offering oral sex and other acts. She also was advertised as working with another female whose age was not listed in the warrant. Like the 16-year-old, detectives found the Onalaska girl at the Port Motel.
Around that time, 33 advertisements on Craigslist offered prostitution in the Milwaukee area, about half of them from the 15-year-old girl, the warrant indicates.
Police arrested an unnamed 21-year-old male who posted the ads on craigslist for her.
But there’s no victims here right?
Our favorite craigslist mouthpiece had this to say…
“Our hearts go out to the victim and their family, and there is nothing more gut-wrenching to our staff than to hear Craigslist has been abused to exploit children,” said Susan MacTavish Best of Craigslist.
Riiiiiight. If your gut is that wrenched why does the erotic services section still exist?
