The news is out: [HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a police officer, a high school teacher, a minister and 13 others in a sting New Jersey officials said Wednesday was aimed at men who tried to set up sexual encounters with people they thought were teenage boys and girls.
The arrests were made as part of “Operation Home Alone,” which targeted people who officials say used social media messaging and dating apps in an attempt to lure children.
New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said most of the defendants were arrested when they arrived at a residence in Bergen County, where they expected to find the victim home alone. The arrests were made from April 11-15.
Despite the undercover officers identifying themselves as 14- and 15-year-olds, authorities say the men still engaged in conversations about sex and arranged to meet up with them.
“The 16 men we arrested allegedly used social media to stalk victims they believed were vulnerable children who could be sexually exploited,” Grewal said. “Parents need to know that the profiles of underage girls and boys we posted on social media to catch these offenders could easily have been profiles of their own children.”]
Can someone receive a religious exception? The Torah sets the age of consent at 9 years old, the bible at 14 years old and Islam at 6 years old (I guess they have small dicks).
