‘Sting’ by vigilante group results in firefighter’s arrest: We’ve mentioned these guys before. Here’s their Web site. Looks like they bagged one clean.
An indictment alleges Ryan Hogan, 24, of Massapequa, N.Y., used a firehouse computer to try to entice a woman posing as a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him, and to send her an obscene image of himself.
The girl actually was a member of a group called Perverted Justice, a group that sends volunteers into Internet chat rooms to pose as young teens. When men contact the “teens,” the group’s Web site posts their sexually explicit conversation and often the men’s pictures and phone numbers.
I’ve read through some of the chat transcripts they’ve posted. Lemme tell you — they’re awfully disturbing to a guy with two daughters.
