I can’t believe people are this desperate and still fall for this crap. I mean come on, if you are chatting with an underage girl or boy on the internet about having Sex, chances are in this day and age it’s a setup.
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — A youth pastor, a fire lieutenant, a doctor, and theme park employees are just a few of the people arrested in an online child sex sting in Orange County.
Fifty people were arrested as part of Operation Spider Web. Channel 9 was the first to report on the sting operation Monday. Now, the Orange County Sheriff’s Office has released more information about the bust.
Here’s how the sting worked; 50 detectives took part in online chat rooms, some posing as parents offering sex with their children, others posing as children themselves. They set up in a west Orange County home where the people came to meet what they thought where children ranging in ages 8 to 15. Instead officers surprised them and took the people down. One of those arrested had a knife in his pocket with his hand on it. Thirty-three of those arrested came from other counties, even other states to have sex with children. Even with the busts completed police say there is still a lot of work to be done.
“In this case a lot of it will involve forensic information. I know the sheriff’s office executed a lot of search warrants on these individuals homes to get their personal computers,” said Assistant State Attorney Deborah Barra.
Channel 9 is working with the sheriff’s office to find out more about some of those arrested, like Michael Lee, a 32-year-old youth pastor at Eastland Baptist Church on Lake Underhill road.
The majority of those arrested in the sting operation have bonded out of jail.

I am all for these people being busted and having the key thrown away, but watching the way that these overzealous sheriffs deputies throw them around and yell “stop resisting” before they even identify themselves at times leaves me with a raised eyebrow. The testoserone level might need to be bumped down a few degrees.
I understand the inherent danger and the need to strike quick, but the CYA shouting of “stop resisting” just sounds like an excuse to beat up a suspect, which isn’t cool. Even if these guys deserve it.
