[Poconos? I think it was there that a young PJ used to spend HOURS staring at an incredible Diego Rivera mural. It had a commie theme but it was compelling. Okay, back to the pervo news story...]
A former chief United Nations weapons inspector is accused of contacting what he thought was a 15-year-old girl in an Internet chat room, engaging in a sexual conversation and showing himself masturbating on a Web camera.
[As Yogi Berra once said, this is like déjà vu all over again.]
Scott Ritter of Delmar, N.Y., who served as chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98 and who was an outspoken critic of the second Bush administration in the run-up to the war in Iraq, is accused of contacting what turned out to be a Barrett Township police officer posing undercover as a teen girl.
[What's the drive time between Delmar NY and Newton MA?]
The police affidavit gives the following account:
Officer Ryan Venneman was posing as 15-year-old "Emily" in an online chat room when he was contacted by someone using the name "Delmarm4fun." This person, later identified as Ritter, told "Emily" he was a 44-year-old male from Albany, N.Y.
[Ben Burch would prefer Ryan to "Emily."]
"Emily" told Ritter she was a 15-year-old girl from the Poconos, at which point Ritter asked for a picture other than the one "Emily" had posted on her account. Ritter then sent her a link to his Web camera and began to masturbate on camera.
[Ben Burch wants that video!]
"Emily" asked Ritter for his cell phone number, which he provided.
Ritter again asked "Emily" how old she was. Told she was 15, Ritter said he didn't realize she was 15 and turned off his webcam, saying he didn't want to get in trouble.
[Too old for Scott.]
Ritter told "Emily" he had been fantasizing about having sex with her, to which she replied: "Guess you turned it off ..."
[This conversation has already turned me off.]
Ritter then said: "You want to see it finish," reactivated his
webcam and continued masturbating and ejaculated on camera.
[Ben Burch just broke his thumb hitting the "replay" button.]
The online conversation occurred in February 2009, but the investigation lasted until November, when Ritter was charged, because police had to undergo the lengthy process of obtaining court orders to get Ritter's cell phone and computer information.
[Any interesting e-mail sent to a certain patron of Bukowski's?]
Ritter is awaiting his next appearance in Monroe County Common Pleas Court. He waived his right last month to a preliminary hearing and is free on $25,000 unsecured bail.
[Saddam Hussein is now dead so no flight risk. And now the DUmmies, with the very notable exception of one, discuss this sordid story...]
And they still can't arrest Bush and Cheney for war crimes.
[Good news! You can still buy "War On Iraq" by Scott Ritter and WHO?]
Mr Ritter I hope you're ready for what awaits you in the lockup. Only pedophiles like other pedophiles the rest of us detest them. Most of your future cell mates will be in that hate you group.
[Ben Burch will be in that love you group.]
I seem to recall he had similar charges against him a few years back.
[Uh-Oh! Ritter will be in the slammer for a long time...unless he gives up some names or at least one name.]
it was very political since the details of that case were supposed to sealed
[His case was sealed for 24 business hours on May 12, 2006.]
Hasn't Ritter already gotten himself in trouble trying to hook up with underage girls? I remember there was some Burger King incident a few years back.
[He tried to get out of the latter incident by telling a Whopper.]
Blew his credibility all over a web cam- asshole.
[Ben Burch would also like to blow some of that credibility.]
Sounds like he has a WMD in his britches
[More like a WSD. Weapon of Self Destruction.]
Jesus H. Christ, how many times do these guys have to get busted?
[It is Chris Hansen to whom you need to address that question.]
"I made some sweet tea it's on the table, I just gotta put this stuff in the washer real quick ."
so i guess he won't be invited to testify in congress any time soon
[Perhaps not but he has an open invitation for "To Catch a Predator.]
Wow. Ejaculating on camera gives new meaning to the term "smoking gun".
[Ben Burch wants to pull that trigger.]
I am waiting for the trial
[Guess who WON'T be appearing as a character witness.]
Didn't he co-author a book with a well known DUer?
[I believe you're right but recalling his name WILL be a tough task. I PITTy the one who has to figure that out.]
Co-author night be considered a stretch as I understood the book was based on one long face to face interview with Ritter. Our DUer, like most DUers, felt totally betrayed when the first story broke.
[Our DUer turned himself into a Temporary SockPuppet when the first story broke.]
