I agree that the set up part of this by the police is a fine line. The guy out trying to pick up children needs to be dealt with in a way to stop what he is doing. If I found photos on my daughter computer with that 42 year olds pecker on it and I could find him he would have a large problem. Yes I hear you wheels turning if my daughter was a tramp then who is at fault. I say the older cunning man over the 15 year foolish child. I do see both sides of the issue the police do like to make a name for the department some times but I agree with the police on this issue. I respect your view too.

Is it my imagination or has Sir Isaac lightened up a little here recently? :D He had me wondering there for a while. still does sometimes (ducking)

By the way, I have yet to put anyone on this board "on ignore". I thought I was going to for the first time last weekend. But so far, I'm wide open. There really isn't enough traffic on this board to make it a real problem.

Cases like this where the wrong-doer has so much to lose...surgeons, astronauts, clergymen...people who occupy positions of trust and respect... people who know the meaning of the word "sacrifice". They apply themselves and work so hard to accomplish these lofty goals, then, in a moment of madness they throw it all away. Just flush their lives right down the crapper. Amazing!

I was gonna make a tasteless comment...but nevermind.

When times are hard people are good and times are good people are bad. We had a problem and that problem is gone so now everybody that sat on the side line as all this took place is now coming back to the middle and enjoying the post. I treat people good but I will not take a talking to and I do not expect anybody else to either. I keep looking for a red dot by my name :eek:

Al you are on the right page on this issue and besides it will be up to the courts anyway.

Well I stand corrected. Sorry about that Joe.
I just about have to agree. I was the first to bring up the 'intent' vs. actually committing the crime. It's just when it comes to Pedophiles whether it's intent or not, just bothers me. I'm all for giving someone the benefit of a doubt when ever I hear of cases like this. I can only imagine how many lives have been ruined because of false accusations. This however was not a false accusation, so it'll be interesting to see how any trial goes. It's like those hooker sting operations.. I mean all you have to do is ASK right ? then you get busted ?

This is entrapment, plain and simple....but I disagree with letting him "slide" too.

A "sexual encounter" date needed to be setup, and if they guy arrived on the scene, THEN arrest/charge him before he commits the crime but after he has shown clear intention of committing a crime.

As it stands, he's done nothing more significant than expose himself as a dirty old man who finds teenage women attractive.....and a lot of us fall into that category.

Brooke Hogan, only 18. I rest my case.

Slocum, a general surgeon and vascular surgeon who teaches part-time at the medical school here, was arrested at Columbia Park in Shreveport late Tuesday afternoon. Authorities said he had made arrangements for a meeting there to get the pictures.

D'oh

Guess I should read the story instead of just the comments. Appears he made arrangements to receive child pornography AND arrived on the scene.....clear cut case of intention to commit a crime as far as I'm concerned.

Yeah, but she's like a supermodel type. Lechers are to be expected in her case. We're talking about what could have been some 15-year-old girl. If I'm reading the posts right, I think he did go to meet her somewhere and that was where he was busted. I don't know if this meeting was for a sexual plan though.

The way I understood it is that the purpose of the meeting was to receive pornographic pictures of a 15 year old girl, and he showed up.

Clear cut case of intention to acquire illegal goods as far as I'm concerned....simply put, I can no longer dismiss his actions as simple flirting.

First I would like to ask Joepole how old are his daughters? Are they toddlers, elementary, middle or high school age?

2nd I have an 18 yr old daughter and some of you know her in RL what she looked like at 15, no she didn't look 15!!!! I kept a lock down on her computer during her early teenage years till she moved out the house due to perverts out there just as this dr. I watch to catch a perdator each week and each time one of those guys walk in the house they deserve the 50k bond that is fixing to be slapped on them.

When will men wake up and realize what a chlid is vs a legal girl? Is youth so tempting that you loose your career and family over? What do men see in these young girls? Yes they are beautiful but remember they are NOT LEGAL! Is it the innocence of the under age girls that is so tempting like they have never had sex before? Don't men realize in todays society more and more girls are having sex at the ages of 12 and up? Is it the sexy clothes these parents are allowing their under age children to wear that tempts men?

If you ask me it's pathetic, sick and immoral but who has high morals these days?

If the intent on the internet is talked about having sex, doing this and doing that and sending nude pictures of themselves to under age girls believe me the intent is to have sex with them.

In texas they don't even have to show up for the meeting all they have to do is have the intent and they get arrested.

I say wake up men and keep your nasty thoughts in your minds and not on the computer because it will cause you more grief in the end if you are caught.

And that's my .03!

>This however was not a false accusation

Sure it was. There no minor involved.

Isaac-Saxxon 02-23-2007 11:51 AM

I do not think the court will see it that way joe

I agree that there was not a minor involved this time because the police took the place of the 15 year old but that does not change the fact that the doctor was on the hunt. I have three daughters and they dress like the older girls and it is hard to stop that I have one still in the nest and she is 15 and
5'10" and very pretty and does not look 15 so I guard her close because I know how naive she really is.

Come on Joe, I think you know what I was talking about.
Jane falsely accusing John of Rape != John getting faked out and caught trying to attempt the crime.

One is false accusation and the other is INTENT. Big difference I would think.
