The Revolting Cannibal Cop Who Never Canabalized Anyone

“The judge’s ruling rightly highlights the problems with finding someone guilty of a “conspiracy” or an “attempt” to commit a crime when the evidence of a crime is nothing but words. It’s one thing to use a Google search as evidence of intent or knowledge, when an actual crime has resulted and there’s a real victim. But in the Cannibal Cop case, no women were hurt. No kidnapping plans were consummated. For Valle, the words were the crime. The online world was the conspiracy.”
