Readers — This report by Noah Pransky, my new Journalism Hero, is so well done and so shocking, I hope that it gets reposted throughout the blogosphere: (I have removed the video because it automatically starts playing anytime you go to my blog.) It details how men who go online to adult chat rooms and begin chats with people who say they are of legal age, then get entrapped as “sex offenders,” when the date bait “reveals” that she is actually underage.
The “kids wandering into adult chat rooms and accidentally having sexual conversations with grownups” seems like it would be a very tiny group of people — if any. After painstakingly crunching the numbers, it also reveals that the majority of men talking to these “teen girls” are young men themselves, who are naturally going to be interested in a partner they think is about their same age. Here is a note I got from a mom earlier this week: My son is currently facing charges for Internet luring he went into an adult website where the age was to be 18 he started talking back and forth with a profile seating she was 20 after a few texts back and forth he felt there was a connection and began conversations with her then at some point she stated that she was only about to turn 15 yes he should have stopped communication then, but a few more texts went and the charges came.
Watch the piece and then try to remember some of the details when people tell you: “I can’t let my children play outside. He was not in any kind of chat room for kids gaming rooms or anything just trying to meet someone his own age which turned out to be a cop in and adult place.
