  • really?

    Is the integrity of the profession really being protected here? The law surrounding this type of stalking / predatory behavior hasn't caught up with our technological times -- but applying simple standards of human decency, it is clear that this man's admitted criminal offenses were pretty heinous. This is no different than placing a hidden camera in a bathroom or behind a mirror - in fact, it is scarier given that he was right there, stalking his child-prey and then tried to shove his way out of the situation and flee the police (not to mention the evidence that he engaged in the same perverted conduct on a repeated basis before he was caught).
    In my personal opinion, this decision sends the public a terrible message about how we police ourselves. I hope this man rehabilitates himself and does no more harm - but shouldn't the keys to our profession be more carefully guarded - for the benefit of all of us and the courts?
