So the other day I received an e-mail about Raymond Boden who I dubbed a craigslist creeper. Go read what he did. I’ll wait.
You’re back? Ok, here’s the e-mail…
You dub him “Craigslist Creeper”. I am all for the first amendment, but seriously you have NO IDEA who this man REALLY is or what he stands for. No, I don’t agree with his choices, but he was NOT looking for a 12 year old. In fact he asked on several occasions how old the daughter was! Why is it that law enforcement is never looked at as a possible problem? Does anyone ever think that showers like To Catch a Predator can make police set people up?
And really? Craigslist Creeper? A bit harsh don’t you think? Yes, it may get you readers but at who’s expense? I know that when Ray gets out my kids or my grandchildren will be with him ALONE and they will love him as much, if not more than I always have – and ALWAYS WILL!!
First off you act like I dubbed him THE craigslist creeper. Take a look around. He’s just A craigslist creeper. Unfortunately only one of many. He wasn’t the first and he isn’t the last.
Secondly I’m really sure he was set up. That’s why he pleaded guilty. I hear that all the time. If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard that I’d at least be able to take my family out for a nice dinner.
Speaking of family if you really want to leave your kids or grandkids around him that’s your prerogative. Not only is blood thicker than water it’s dumber than water too. I’d hate to see any child get molested but I’m not the one that will have to pay for therapy if Uncle Ray ever had his way.
Oh and don’t flatter your friend Ray. He’s not going to get me any more readers.
58-year-old Raymond Boden of Knoxville, Tennessee recently pleaded guilty to trying to solicit a 12-year-old girl for sex through craigslist.
Back in may of 2011 Boden posted an ad stating that he was looking for a mother and daughter to have sex with. A woman responded to the ad claiming to be the mother of a 12-year-old girl. Boden made his intentions very clear that he wanted to have sex with both of them. Boden showed up to a hotel armed with ‘sexual aids’ and a present for the girl. However instead of a girl and her mother he was met by the Knoxville Police. They were the ones who actually responded to the ad.
With his guilty plea Boden is looking at 10 to life but as I always say it will probably be closer to ten than life. While I’m at it let me beat another dead horse. This is further proof that craigslist needs to monitor their site. When someone posts an ad looking for mother-daughter sex they’re not talking about a mother and her adult daughter. One more dead horse to beat. If police are continually arresting guys like this think of how many have not been arrested or have gotten away with it before being arrested.
I’ve had commenters try to tell me that craigslist is a boon for police trying to catch child predators and that moderating the site would drive them underground. That’s the point slapnuts. The farther they are driven underground the less often these crimes happen. Since craigslist has refused to do anything about this they’re nothing more than a public avenue used by pedophiles to network with each other. Take that avenue away from them and there will be less victims.
