Deputies posed as minors online to lure them to a home where the cops were waiting.
SARASOTA, Florida (PNN) - July 26, 2019 - Terrorist pig thug cops in Florida have released footage of 25 men who were snared in an online sting operation designed to capture pedophiles.
The men are accused of trying to have sex with children as part of a Sarasota County Sheriff's Office undercover operation called Operation Intercept VI.
Sheriffs posed as minors on social media sites and online apps where suspects engaged in sexually explicit conversations with them.
The men traveled to a house in the county with the intent of having sex with a child but instead walked into the arms of terrorist pig thug cops.
Footage shows the two dozen men walking into the house expecting to be greeted with a child
they were planning to molest.
But their plans are quickly scuppered when the door opens and terrorist pig thug cops burst out, handcuffing the men and dragging them away.
“Unfortunately, the Internet allows for easy and anonymous access to children by strangers who are hiding behind a computer screen,” Sarasota County Sheriff Tom Knight said in a news release. “That is why these operations are paramount to ensuring our most vulnerable population is safe and protected.”
“The men arrested during this operation managed to blend into society and attempted to prey on children by developing a trust through promises to exploit them for sexual purposes. As long as men like these prey upon our community, I will ensure our ongoing commitment to putting them behind bars,” said Knight.
A similar operation in 2018 led to the arrest of 21 individuals. More than 100 have been arrested in operations dating back to 2013.
Those convicted could face up to 15 years in prison, with a five-year minimum sentence.
