SSCC #444–NYPD

I saw this last week and I kept trying to come up with something to put with it and then a reader bumped it to me over the weekend.  This one is just disturbing in so many ways.

A New York City police officer who allegedly planned to kidnap, cook and eat as many 100 women has been arrested following a joint NYPD and FBI investigation.

This one makes the count because of the following:

Gilberto Valle III, of Forest Hills, Queens, was charged with one count of conspiracy to commit kidnapping, according to a federal criminal complaint, as well was using the National Crime Information Center database to access unauthorized data.

This is why I have serious issues with databases created even with the most noble of intentions.  Just because the intent is good at the beginning or even the majority of users doesn’t mean that it cannot be turned by one individual set upon evil.  The details are just sickening.

It makes me wonder if he came across this(NSFW, Not Safe For Work, seriously do NOT click at work!  What can I say? GBC has corrupted me.) and didn’t realize that was all fake.

This is disturbing and sickening on so many levels.

State Sponsored Criminal #444: Gilberto Valle

Because the state exists to enable criminals and cannibals to find their unwitting victims to prey upon.

    Yeah I saw this last week as well. Some people were calling it a thought crime, but really this went beyond a mere fantasy. He took actual steps to make it happen, they were just lucky to have caught him before he started.

      Initially I wasn’t sure to put this one on the count because they busted his ass immediately when they found out.

      As for being a crime, a thoughts would be fantasizing about it, everyone has their own kinks, and different strokes for different folks. That said, he started researching and moving towards doing it for real by finding accomplices and researching how to do it. You bet it’s a crime and sadly I don’t think they’ll be able to fully nail his ass to the wall until someone disappears. I’m afraid at this point we’re prolonging the inevitable.
