Could this be the stupidest cop?

    State trooper nabbed in Internet solicitation sting

    Obviously with the Dateline programs, anyone who gets caught is pretty stupid. But a State Trooper to get caught has got to be the ultimate.

    This thread shouldn't go unreplied to.

    And yes, he is a damned stupid cop.

    It absolutely amazes me the idiots who get busted in these stings.

    And these idiots admit they knew there was a chance they were talking to a cop, when they show up to the house and Chris Hansen pops out.

    Ugly story, especially since the cop in question was part of a Safe Kids program.

    On another note, Hank, what's up with the spelling of sergeant in that story?

    I noticed that too. It's right in the headline, but misspelled in the story. Likely some sloppy copy editing and even sloppier writing.

    Man, how'd that get past us? I think we were too busy focusing on the errors in that story.
  10. AME Jack Mehoffer would have caught it.

    As would copy editor Hugh Jass and publisher Mike Hunt.
