A paedophile thought he was meeting a 14-year-old when the cops surprised him at London Bridge, Friday, March 27.
Dark Justice, a team working on paedophile cases are the ones responsible for the set up. They are a group of journalist and broadcasters who interact with the suspects online pretending they are young and innocent.
The team shared their strategy in conducting investigations through their website, www.darkjustice.com.uk
“When conducting our investigations, we never approach anybody first. Instead, we set up a profile and wait for messages. When we receive a message, we reply immediately and tell them that we are underage.
When talking to anyone, we always try to avoid sexually explicit conversation. We act young and uneducated on the subject, and we NEVER encourage sexual chat or sexual behaviour.
The people we talk to suggest a meeting, and at this point we take over and suggest a place where we know we can control what’s going on, and where we’ll be safe.
When a person confirms that they are coming, and when our team spots them, we ring the police and report the crime. We then confront the person with cameras, and ask them about their actions and intentions. As soon as they have been arrested we go to the police station to make statements.
If someone suggests a meeting after a chat online with our decoy and then doesn’t show up for the meeting, our evidence is still handed in to the police and investigated.
Some people are sceptical about what we do and how we do it. We’re not vigilantes who operate above the law, we’re concerned citizens who work closely with the police to help effect change and to keep our children safe! We will continue to work to catch these sexual predators who terrorise our children, and we’ll do our best to bring awareness to the epidemic our children are facing online today.”
The Times, UK stated that there are 25000 identified paedophiles. Unfortunately, not all of them can be arrested. The reason is because the number of paedophiles is too big that it can be impossible to capture them all to prison. The National Crime Agency pointed out that they are focusing on the most dangerous people and those who can carry out physical abuse.
