In Hora's street, earlier
I would agree the internet has made it easier for those that want it to access rather than "turned" people.
I actually find the area interesting and would love to be able to study offenders. Rather than the simplistic tabloid "evil" depiction I think theres a lot more to it, based around things like emotional development. I arrested one guy in his 70s who'd written a story about eloping with a 3 year old and marrying her - no sexual fantasies involved. An otherwise intelligent functioning adult, how or why was that a fantasy?
This doesnt mean I'm defending it or saying they shouldnt be criminalised or detained, just that I think its a much more complex and deeper issue than simply being "evil" or a "dirty perv".
I'm surprised she's still the same person, tbh.
they do a lot of regular psych assessment and welfare stuff, and tend to tenure the posts.
that's not how 99.9% of men gain access to children.
it's not, but it was how stranger danger was taught to us in the 70s (I'm same age as Hora) which I believe was his point.
