Miss America doesn't care about sex predators

    Miss America won't testify in sex predator sting

    The case against at least one -- and probably more -- of the 11 men arrested in Suffolk with the help of the beauty queen and the television show "America's Most Wanted" is in jeopardy because representatives for Miss America 2007 Lauren Nelson have told prosecutors she won't return to Long Island to testify, said Suffolk District Attorney Thomas Spota.

    Without Nelson available as a star witness, every case she actively participated in during the undercover police sex sting may be up in the air, said Spota. He called the police operation well-intended but "nothing more than a publicity stunt."

    "Given the fact that we have now determined that Miss America was actually speaking to one of those arrested, I have instructed prosecutors not to present any more cases to the grand jury until we can determine her involvement," said Spota, who added that police didn't tell his office about the April 20 operation until the afternoon before it went down.

    Referring to one case that already has been presented to a grand jury, Spota said, "That case, in my view, could be compromised."
    Officials with the Miss America Organization did not return several calls for comment Monday. Spota said his office was trying to contact Nelson Monday, but was unable to do so. "Her agents have told us that she's not coming back to testify," Spota said.

    Subpoena her.

    I somehow doubt the Miss America organization would be too wild about the idea that Miss America couldn't set foot in the state of New York without being served with a subpoena.

    Wow, what a strong stance, Miss America. That's pretty damn weak - if you're going to start something, you'd better finish it.

    I DVRed that show and watched it today. What a disappointment. Nowhere near the entertainment quality provided by Chris Matthews. All John Walsh did was badger the guys as they did the perp walk in handcuffs.

    BTW, if you think TTIUWOP:
    Miss America 2007 Lauren Nelson of Oklahoma, with a team of specially-trained cops, take down accused predators who thought they were about to meet with a teenage girl, on a special edition of America's Most Wanted.
