    Man plotted to kill and eat children, feds say

    (CNN) -- A Boston-area man, who was planning to kidnap children, lock them in a basement dungeon, rape and eat them, should be imprisoned for at least 27 years, federal authorities said in court documents filed this week.
    The man, Geoffrey Portway, 40, pleaded guilty in May to distribution and possession of child pornography and solicitation to commit a crime of violence, according to court documents

    .....

    His home in Worcester was searched last year and authorities found tens of thousands of computer images and videos of child pornography, 4,500 exchanges of child pornography between Portway and the people he chatted with online. The images included children being cooked and prepared to be eaten, court documents said.

    Authorities also found a locked basement, court documents show, that contained a child-sized coffin, a steel cage, a steel topped table, two freezers, disposable scalpels, butchering kits and castration tools.
    Online chats, seized by police, showed Portway call his basement a "dungeon" where he intended to "keep kidnapped children while he sexually abused them and as a place to eventually murder and cannibalize the children."

    Two other men who chatted with Portway have already been convicted.

    One was a puppeteer who, authorities say, plotted with Portway to kidnap children the puppeteer knew from his work at a local Florida church.

    Sometimes there are stories that just stun me and this is one of them. Another example of a vile person (and the other two convicted already) and what dangers can await children out in the world. Truly sickening if you ask me.

    Left unsaid in this story is how this internet chatting lead to federal charges. Are we actually paying federal agents to monitor (participate in?) internet chat rooms? It is no wonder that we "lack resources" to locate and deport illegal aliens if we assign federal LEO's to chat on the internet.

    So you would rather the feds not spend time trying to stop monsters like this, but instead keep an eye on Julio at the Home Depot? You're kidding right?

    Good point!

    It's a shame the feds are wasting precious resources going after law abiding citizens who want to do nothing more than merely capture, torture, kill, roast and eat young children

    How many hours per monster identified does this "secret" snooping take? This is news because it is very, very, very rare, not because it happens all of the time. We could ignore all crimes below cannabalism and murder too, yet that makes little sense. Having laws that are not even attempted to be enforced is simply insane. Do you realize that we have 5K ICE field agents, a force the size of the Boston, MA and Baltimore, MD police forces combined that is assigned to patrol the entire USA?

    Yet again, the article doesn't list how many man hours were put into this, so your assumption that it is somehow taking from catching Julio at the Home Depot is just your assumption.

    Again, I'd rather the feds do this and catch real monsters especially if they are going across state lines.

    I'm sure if your daughter or son was eventually killed by this maniac, you would be happy to know that 10 border crossings were stopped instead right?

    Another good point!

    Because walking past an imaginary line causes far more damage than abusing children.

    OK, please show me how many such "monsters" are caught each year and how many federal man hours, per potential cannibal caught, are expended. This seems to be yet more justification for federal internet patrols, a really nice job if you can get it.
