This blog page has been created for an assignment focusing on Cybercrime.
Thank you for reading and feel free to comment and share :)In relation to the previous blog post on covert sting operations, the Channel 4 documentary, ‘The Paedophile Hunter’, will now be explored in order to demonstrate the successes and failures of undercover methods.
In addition to this, Hunter secretly filmed the encounters and posted it on Facebook, effectively humiliating the predators.
The Channel 4 documentary managed to gain significant publicity following the honey traps; however, there has been frequent criticism over this form of public exposure.
Therefore, I believe that the most effective policing strategy would be to employ more covert sting operations; this will enable the police to prevent potential as well as existing sex offenders from communicating with genuine victims.
Feelings of sadness and anger as well as hostile, self-blame, and aggressor-blame attributions were more often elicited from face-to-face victimization than cyber victimization.
Sadness and anger were linked positively to later face-to-face and cyber aggression.
Overall, this most notorious case of online grooming is of a man named Douglas Lindsell who was jailed for numerous sex crimes against underage girls.
This case served as a dramatic catalyst towards the emergence of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 which intended to cover a wider range of sex offences, including online grooming, and sought to impose more stringent sentences.
