The Enterprise of Brockton, Mass. www.enterprisenews.com Sex fiends avoid prison By Maureen Boyle ENTERPRISE STAFF WRITER Only a fraction of men nabbed in police online sex stings in Plymouth County went to jail — even though a majority admitted trying to lure children over the Internet, a review of recent records shows. Of the 34 men charged in online police stings since October 2005, 21 pleaded guilty so far. But only five served jail time ranging from 90 days to one year — even though prosecutors asked they all be locked up. And in three of those cases where the men were sentenced to jail terms, they were set free because they had already served the equivalent of the sentence while awaiting trial, records show. The 21 men who pleaded guilty in district courts or in Brockton Superior Court received suspended sentences, probation or their cases were continued without a finding. Cases against 13 men are still pending. "It is probably not the best message to send. ... It is an offense that deserves time in jail," Plymouth County Sheriff Joseph McDonald said. The men had been arrested — including 16 last summer in a sting dubbed "Operation Trenchcoat" — following investigations by the Plymouth County sheriff department's High Tech Evidence Analysis Team (HEAT) and state police. One of the suspects arrested, Sean Dodgson, a Plymouth selectmen at the time, is awaiting trial. He has since resigned as selectman under pressure. In the investigations, authorities posed as young girls and were enticed by men online who tried to lure them into sexual encounters. Several of the men drove to meet who they thought were children and were arrested by police at the meeting spot. One of those men, Richard S. Kruczynski Jr., who drove from Worcester, received a 90-day jail term. And Harold Spector, a pilot from Peabody, who flew to Marshfield Airport with condoms and Viagra after arranging to meet who he thought was a 15-year-old girl for sex, served a one-year jail term. But then there was Salvatore Lariccia of Medway, who agreed to meet a detective posing as a 13-year-old girl and then backed out — only to go to North Attleboro, where he was caught by another detective posing online as a child. Lariccia, former chairman of Medway Tax Facts, was put on probation for five years — even though Plymouth County prosecutors wanted him jailed for 21/2 years. He is scheduled to be tried on the North Attleboro charges Aug. 9. There was Michael Hennessey of Plymouth, who went to Hanover Mall after chatting online for hours with who he thought was a 13-year-old boy — then went to the Hanover Mall to meet the "child." Hennesssey was given five years probation. There was Robert DeMarcoi of Brockton, who drove to Marshfield to meet who he thought were two girls, ages 14 and 15, after saying online his fantasy was to have sex with both of them. He was given a 21/2-year suspended sentence, five years probation and has to wear a Global Positioning System tracking device. Edward Thomas of Malden sent photos of himself naked and cash to who he thought was a 13-year-old girl so she could buy a Webcam to send photos of herself. He was given five years probation and a string of conditions, including keeping away from children. But Attorney Raipher D. Pellegrino, whose specialty includes computer law, said to expect more people to be caught in online stings — and more going to jail in the future. The law is still catching up to technology and the sentences may be reflecting that, he said. "It is a learning curve," Pellegrino said. "In most states, the statutes are somewhat antiquated." Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy J. Cruz said that even though judges didn't lock up most of the defendants as prosecutors wanted, the men — many with no previous criminal records — are now identified by law enforcement, must register as sex offenders and adhere to a list of restrictions. "If nothing else, it puts these people on the map," he said. "Now we know where they are. We know where they live. We have a starting point." McDonald, the sheriff, said that even though most of the men got probation or suspended sentences, everyone so far has pleaded guilty. "It is interesting that none of them so far went to trial," McDonald said. "When they were arrested, the defense lawyers were screaming entrapment. "I think the truth has come out about that, based on their pleas," he said. "It clearly is not entrapment." Maureen Boyle can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Family of the America's: http://www.familyplanning.net 5. Pope Paul VI Institute http://www.popepaulvi.com If you would like to understand the rational for why the Catholic Church rejects artificial birth control read Pope Paul VI's 1968 encyclical HUMANAE VITAE: http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/paul_vi/encyclicals/documents/hf_p-vi_enc_25071968_humanae-vitae_en.html For insights on living life in harmony with the mystery of God, and others, check out Pope John Paul II's LOVE & RESPONSIBILITY and THEOLOGY OF THE BODY. A criticism however needs to be brought to these two aforementioned books. They're built on the premise that humanity is "fallen" and that the trajectory of mankind is to be redeemed back into its "original innocence." Once having entered this mindset of original innocence harmonious relationships follow. And I agree... it's definitely a good mindset to have, but it's not an innocence we lost from the "Fall" of Adam and Eve. I believe there was no "Fall", and the only innocence we're returning to is the innocence we felt as children. Evolutionary biology is showing us that we are born from something more complex than the snap of God's fingers, and whatever our genesis, it includes severe conflict and competition. And this competition goes deep into our beings. For example, the book Sperm Wars by Robin Baker shows that a good portion of the sperm in a man's ejaculate is designed to fight and kill-off sperm from another male in the woman's cervix. Reflection on this biological fact unwinds for me so much Christian theology, especially the premise referenced above in JP2's two books. They're built on Jesus words in Mathew 19:8... that before "the fall" man and woman (Adam and Eve) were one in marriage, and that it was a result of the fall we need to return to how it was "in the beginning." Jesus is the supposed Redeemer who will deliver us to the harmony of how it was "in the beginning," but we know that the beginning was an awful place. Our physical bodies tell us that millions of years ago reproduction was a gang bang nightmare where after the men nearly fought to the death over who'd have the woman first, even then their sperm had to fight like gladiators. Is this God's design from 6000 years ago? I don't think so. And it is because I can't reconcile traditional Catholic theology with science and its reasonable methods my conscience and prayer-life are being pushed to find a new understanding. Today I argue that the Christian mission is not to have us return to some mythical Eden, but to have us evolve into our potential... to go where we have never been before. It's no longer Jesus as savior delivering us back to Eden's innocence, but Jesus as older, wiser friend inviting us over for dinner, and in that conversation, we discover for ourselves those areas that need maturity and purity. It's a new Christology, and maybe it converts much of Jesus into allegory, but it connects the reality of evolutionary science with our human experience... and by that, I mean that deep quiet desire we all have to want to be more than we are and to live up to our potential. Jesus lived up to his potential, and modeling our lives after his brings out the virtues, which are universal and are not exclusive to any religion. [Side note: it just occurred to me that the virtues are nothing more than God's personality traits. This might be worthy of meditation.] As a complement to this way of looking at life, I believe one's own personal physical nature is to be in harmony with the mind and spirit. Medicines are important in this as they help heal us when we're sick, but the contraceptive pill is not a medicine. It is not fixing something that is broken, it is breaking something that is working just fine (i.e., female fertility). This is why I'm opposed to it, and I think there's a better way for couples to manage their reproduction. And, I think people should know the facts and risks regarding how "The Pill" may cause embryonic abortions. This alone should bother a lot of Christians, especially those precious few who still believe that although we are "fallen," that's not an excuse to be passive, but that we still have an obligation to try to live up to our potential.

5 million views for an old codger giving a lecture about arithmetic?? What's going on? You'll just have to watch to see what's so damn amazing about what he (Albert Bartlett) has to say. I introduce this video to my students as "Perhaps the most boring video you'll ever see, and definitely the most important." But then again, after watching it most said that if you followed along with what the presenter (a professor emeritus of Physics at Univ of Colorado-Boulder) is saying, it's quite easy to pay attention, because it is so damn compelling.

For many years Paul Karason drank a solution known as colloidal silver, which is touted by many as being a cure all and remedy for just about any disease, illness or health problem there is. The problem is that colloidal silver does none of this, but it does cause a condition called argyria where the skin of users turn blue after ingesting this quack remedy. There is no cure for argyria and Paul Karason will live the rest of his life with blue skin. Don't fall for the quacks and charlatans who promote colloidal silver as a "supplement" with health benefits. Contact the FDA today and ask them to ban this dangerous compound from human use. http://www.fda.gov/comments.html More information on colloidal silver and argyria: http://www.quackwatch.org/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/PhonyAds/silverad.html http://www.rotten.com/library/medicine/quackery/argyria/
