I have seen this Doctor in my place of business :eek: You just never know who is doing what. I am soooooooo glad the police hunt these perverts down and get them off the street. What the heck is going on with his last name ? He may have been doing this crap for years let us hope this will his last time. The sad part is the doctors family will suffer for what he has done and even though he deserves what he gets his wife or kids or parents will still feel the sorrow and pain.

Slocum??? Is that really his name or his Internet handle?? LMAO Unbelievable if true.

That name.. HA HA HA HA HA HA .. that's just too darn funny.
The crime is of course a tragedy. But that name. :eek:

This is probably a stupid post... and if the guy got caught, he got caught.
I'm just wondering, as the story says:

A Shreveport surgeon has been arrested in an internet sting, accused of trying to solicit who he thought was a 15-year-old girl.
Since who he was "chatting" with and sending pictures back and forth with turns out NOT TO be a 15-year-old girl, but actually a

I'll leave that, at that. Not out to make excuses for this guy. Just thought it was worth bringing up. ?

Or even worse, I suppose he could come up with the Pete Townsend defense "I was doing research on child pornography" :eek:

I think stings like this are outrageous and the fact that they result in prosecutions sickens me. The man broke no law. He did nothing with a child, nor did he attempt to. He solicited sex from an adult, that is not against the law.

Obviously I see your point, and thus my earlier post.
And although I agree in principal, I'm left asking myself what is the alternative. Do we wait for him to get ahold of some young girl FIRST, THEN arrest him ? Or should he not try to be stopped in some way BEFORE it happens ?

Isaac-Saxxon 02-22-2007 03:09 PM

I have to disagree here

This guy has some major issues sending photos of his man hood to someone he thought to be 15. If he had fifty bucks he could go pick up a ho that is of legal age and consent. I do understand the intent and action are two different things and either one is bad. He did take action by going to meet this girl "cop" at the park. I will say even if he is found not guilty his career is over in this town and maybe forever. Thank the media for that.

I understand both points in this matter. I'd think it's a matter of what they try to prosecute him with. He didn't actually do anything with a 15-yo nor was he ever actually in contact with one to begin with. However, his intention was suspicious. A public indecency charge might apply, but statutory rape should not as the act never happened. Solicitation to a minor is iffy because, as KT suggested, there was actually no minor involved.

In short, can you prosecute someone for having the intention to commit a crime, but never actually having the opportunity to attempt it? I think this just brings up political correctness again.

>Do we wait for him to get ahold of some young girl FIRST, THEN arrest him ?

Yes, just like with every other crime.

>Or should he not try to be stopped in some way BEFORE it happens ?

Before what happens? Before he has sex with a 15 year old that doesn't exist?

AnimeSpirit 02-22-2007 04:36 PM

I'd like to think that some people still have a conscience that will change their minds when presented with the desire and opportunity to do something wrong. You just have to wait and see if their conscience is stronger than their intention. However, we will never know that if we prosecute before knowing.

I'm waiting for some father with a daughter or two to chime in here :)

Can't you get busted for the "intent" to do something ? Or if you solicit someone to a do a murder ?

I don't think you can be busted for intending to commit a crime until you attempt it. As far as soliciting someone to murder, you can't get busted until you and the person have conspired to do so, if I'm not mistaken.

For instance, if someone asked a friend of theirs to kill me, it would not become a conspiracy to do so until they plan how and under what circumstances.

Al Swearengen 02-22-2007 06:28 PM

Well, since he ALMOST went thru with it, they should ALMOST prosecute him for it! I'd think the public humiliation and disgrace would be punishment enough...not to mention the damage to his career and whatever loses he incurs with that.

Isaac-Saxxon 02-22-2007 07:06 PM

Excuse me here on this one ...
 
Would they have to tie a sacrificial lamb to a post and wait till he bites it before they stop his predator like behavior. Please this is not aimed at you guys but having three daughters I feel like this perv should be charged and maybe do some treatment time and have to post his presence in any place he lives. I think the word is pedophile. The courts will have the final say but he is very wrong here ! Very :nono: :nono:
