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.
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.
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.
