Seems to me this should be getting more press then it is...


DETROIT (AP) - An assistant U.S. attorney from Florida was arrested in an Internet sting operation after flying to Michigan to have sex with a 5-year-old girl, authorities said Monday.
John D.R. Atchison, 53, was arrested Sunday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after several weeks of Internet conversations between the prosecutor and a detective posing as the mother of a 5-year-old girl, authorities say.

"There wasn't much reaction from him at all," Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said. Atchison was cooperative with authorities, he said.

He was charged with using interstate communication to entice a minor to have sexual contact and traveling across state lines with the intent of engaging in illicit sexual contact. If convicted of both charges, he faces up to 40 years in prison.

According to court records, Atchison initiated an online chat Aug. 29 with an undercover officer posing as a mother interested in letting men have sex with her daughter.

At one point, Atchison said: "I'm always gentle and loving; not to worry; no damage ever; no rough stuff ever ever," according to an affidavit filed in court.

Atchison, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., is a prosecutor for the U.S. attorney's office for northern Florida, based in Tallahassee. He requested a court-appointed lawyer at his hearing Monday.

My question to you... how should this bastard be punished? Feel free not to mince words.

I have a few ideas but I'd like to hear yours too.


And because I try not to make all of my entry horrific at any given time, here's some happy Ukrainian Eurovision dancing.

It's not the same thing. A child rapist is a child rapist and deserves all that and more as far as I'm concerned.

I pray to god there's no "civil rights" movement for child molesters, and rapists.

If we look back on these days 60 years from now with horror at how those that abused children were persecuted, I pray I'm long dead.

Did he molest a child? No. Was there a victim? No.

The bottom line is that in the usual hysteria that occurs when a large group of people can't think straight because their emotions cloud their judgment, laws and rights are disregarded and tossed away as if they don't matter.

It happens again and again. It happened to black people in the south, witches back in the day, gay people, and people who never committed a crime yet are prosecuted as if they had.

What's next? Making criminals of those who THINK about doing something but never do? Do we ever draw a line?

It's quite clear by his own ommision that he's done this before.. he's "always gentle" etc. I am interested in seeing how this court case turns out.

I wouldn't be surprised if he admits to having done this in the past.

As it is.. i'm exhausted of the topic, so this'll be the last I post on it. All the same, thanks for the dialogue on it. I appreciate debates. :)
