RSO wanted vibe to be right with craigslist teen

Milwaukee police nab convicted sex offender in online sting operation:

Dale Lamont Williams

Dale Lamont Williams

Police in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have arrested Dale Lamont Williams for allegedly soliciting a 15-year-old boy for sex through craigslist. Police there say that Williams posted an ad on craigslist looking for sex with someone young. When the 15-year-old asked Williams if he was ok with the boy’s age Williams was said to respond with…

“As long as you can carry yourself like an adult when you get here and the vibe is right. I’m cool.”

Williams then instructed the boy on how to get to his residence by bus. It’s always by bus with some creepers.

If you’ve been reading this site for any length of time you should know by now that the 15-year-old boy was actually a detective who is part of Wisconsin’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. It turns out that Williams is a registered sex offender who was wanted in Illinois for failure to register. Wow, another sex offender who re-offended. What are the odds? And he used craigslist too. This story seems so unlikely. Ok, that’s enough sarcasm for now.

It really should come as no surprise that a registered sex offender used craigslist to find his next victim. They know that craigslist itself does nothing to prevent these type of ads from being posted.

The victimless crime in Milwaukee

Craigslist child sex ads lead to arrests:

A 15-year-old runaway girl from Onalaska, Wisconsin was found in Milwaukee prostituting herself on craigslist.

Milwaukee police found that girl’s ad on Craigslist offering oral sex and other acts. She also was advertised as working with another female whose age was not listed in the warrant. Like the 16-year-old, detectives found the Onalaska girl at the Port Motel.

Around that time, 33 advertisements on Craigslist offered prostitution in the Milwaukee area, about half of them from the 15-year-old girl, the warrant indicates.

Police arrested an unnamed 21-year-old male who posted the ads on craigslist for her.

But there’s no victims here right?

Our favorite craigslist mouthpiece had this to say…

“Our hearts go out to the victim and their family, and there is nothing more gut-wrenching to our staff than to hear Craigslist has been abused to exploit children,” said Susan MacTavish Best of Craigslist.

Riiiiiight. If your gut is that wrenched why does the erotic services section still exist?

craigslist, the home of lip service.
