Sheriff says Craigslist facilitates bestiality
The Washington Times ^ | March 16, 2011 | Jerry Seper

Posted on 03/17/2011 9:32:46 AM PDT by yoe

America’s self-described toughest sheriff has issued a warning to the CEO of Craigslist saying the popular Internet website is providing a “mechanism to facilitate criminal activity.”

Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s warning to Jim Buckmaster follows the arrest last month in Arizona by Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detectives of two men — one a middle school teacher and the other a handyman — on charges of conspiracy to commit bestiality.

Sheriff Arpaio said an undercover investigation by his office began after detectives became aware that persons in the Phoenix area were using Craigslist to engage in illegal acts with animals. Detectives set up meetings through computer communications where the suspects believed they were meeting animal owners at a hotel.

“I would hope that Mr. Buckmaster takes my advice seriously and looks into our concerns,” Sheriff Arpaio said. “I think it is sad that people would utilize technology to take advantage of animals like this.”

Although bestiality may not be illegal in other states, the sheriff was instrumental in making the offense a crime in Arizona in 2006.

A quick google search shows there are several websites devoted to bestiality.

...when a Chandler or Mesa (don't remember which) senior Fire Department official was caught having sex with a sheep.

Do the companies that provide these guys with cell phones also facilitate beastiality? What are we gonna do about them? How about the manufacturers of the cars they use?

OTOH, the Sheriff was able to nab them BECAUSE of the public CL ads.

Sheriff Joe promotes bestiality because his officers patrol around farmlands.

I guess all the other crime problems in Arizona were solved by 2006, leaving the police free to crack down on pig molestation?

This give me serious second thoughts about Arpaio.

"mechanism to facilitate criminal activity.”

So are telephones. So is any communication or socialization technology. So is the bulletin board at a laundromat or the writing on a bathroom stall.

[ Craigslist does not facilitate bestiality, a fallen immoral world facilitates bestiality. ]

Plus Craigslist also helps law enforcement round up these freaks when they post on there.

If there was no Craigslist it would be further underground and harder to setup sting operations.

Actually I am very happy to see this prosecuted.

There is an undercurrent of opinion on FR that perverted sex does not harm anyone.

Au contraire.

People who achieve orgasm over interaction with: animals, or same sex, or etc., are socially deviant.

Social deviants are very destructive to society.

God’s laws regarding sexuality are for our protection. Inasmuch as our laws reflect His, I am grateful.

I do want to see animals kept from abuse, although in some cases bestiality does not physically harm an animal. But I far more want to see evil restrained. And bestiality is evil.

As the old joke goes: Ole and Sven are sitting on the bench outside Ole's barn, watching his old bird dog, who's lying under a tree, intensely licking his private parts as dogs are wont to do.

Ole: "By yiminy, Sven, I wish I could do that, you know?

Sven: "What's stoppin' ya, Ole....he's your dog, yah??"

Unless they're using my dog, it's not my problem.

I have to think that there are other websites that cater to that crowd more so than craigs list. Actually, I’d say the charge applies to the makers of waders more so than craigs list, maybe a lot of waders get sold on craigs list.

He was caught by a 10-yr-old girl, who went screaming to her Uncle.

There may be a ref to the incident in Google; it was in the news at the time. Pretty freaky stuff...

I must disagree. Distasteful as it may be, I am unaware of any part of the Old Testament that proscribes the most common form of bestiality.

I refer, of course, to conservatives sleeping with Liberals.

Yes, it does sometimes happen.

There are both religious freedom issues and commerce clause issues involved in any bestiality case.

For example, just because a Palisimian owns six sheep, and all are living in his house, is not indicative of the Palisimian practicing bestiality.

He could be the owner of a Moslim whore house.

I don’t find an undercurrent of support for bestiality. Some may think Sheriff Joe is a publicity hound, and some may enjoy rating female statutory rape suspects, but I don’t sense any subculture of bestiality here. There are some that don’t like women very much, I have noticed that.

You have the joke as wrong as 2 boys in the horizontal position! This is how the joke goes!

As the old joke goes: Bubba and Hank are sitting on the bench outside Bubba's barn, watching his old bird dog, who's lying under a tree, intensely licking his private parts

Bubba says: "Hank, I shore wish I could do that".

Hank says: "What's stoppin' ya, I'll hold him down if you want to go first. "

No, not a subcurrent of bestiality. A subcurrent of “perversion’s ok,” with the exception of violent and child rape, which is still thankfully not shrugged at.

Thank you for posting that photograph. I did not find the location of the starving man, or the circumstances, (yet.)
But I did find this :
