Does anyone really believe all these stories?

Or that this is how these alleged events actually transpire?

Interesting isn’t it too that there’s been a sudden surge of these local crimes, and that the BPD has already admitted that they engage in sting operations on Craigslist?

Police arrested a 33-year-old registered sex offender Thursday accused of having sex with a Burbank teenager he met online, police said.

The investigation began earlier this month after a Burbank mother found text messages between her 16-year-old daughter and the man, who police identified as Hanford probationer Arnold McGovern, according to Burbank Police Sgt. Claudio Losacco.

After the victim’s mother found McGovern on the state’s sex offender database, she, along with her daughter, reported the incident to police.

The girl told police that she met the man online in February, after which they met at her Burbank home and had “consensual” sex, Losacco said.

Burbank and Hanford investigators reportedly searched the man’s home Thursday, seizing his phone, computers and other evidence.

McGovern, who police said has been convicted of committing lewd acts with a minor, was arrested on suspicion of having sex with a minor, sexual penetration of a minor, contact with a minor for the purpose of lewd and lascivious behavior with a prior conviction of a sex crime and meeting a minor for the purpose of sexual contact, police said.

He’s due in Kings County Superior Court next week.

Police reminded parents to monitor their children’s online and phone activity.

Because the local police certainly are.

Sorry too, but we also find spying on kids to be deeply offensive. We weren’t raised that way. No one should be advocating it. It doesn’t respect them, and all it does is turn the kids into hypocritical little sneaks. Much like the adults around them.

Now here’s a question to be asked that no one in the local journalism world is apparently curious enough to wonder about themselves. They all just reprint the press releases.

Which is, that if the major alleged crime occurred in Burbank, why is this guy being arraigned (or whatever) in Kings County? And does the BPD now no longer need actual physical evidence of sexual activity before they go about charging people?

Yes we know: how deeply offensive it is to question things around here.

Too bad. You know what too? We’ve also heard from a number of sources that BUSD administrators have been searching into student phones galore recently. Surveillance is in the air.

    I don’t believe all of them, but I do believe some of them. Not sure why the court local isn’t in Burbank, but if the story is accurate about the guy going to the 16 year olds girls house…that doesn’t sound like an ad on craigslist.

    Checking kids phones is a tricky one. Look at the girl’s tweets you posted yesterday from the car crash. She didn’t start acting like that at 18. Some kids/people (in theory) could use a watchful eye at times.

      I think it’s at least 50 percent drummed up by the police. I suspect that there was a good amount of luring in going on here.

      I’m also curious how they got in touch with each other to begin with.

      If the BPD is using Craigslist to lure in potential suspects — which they’ve already admitted they go through — that’s just creepy and inappropriate as hell. The council should put stop to it. It’s entrapment.

      As to the newest angel, the parents have repeatedly kissed her ass AFTER they knew what was going on with her. By her own words alone she’s been rewarded with presents and trips.

      The only person I feel sorry for in that accident is the one girl with decent parents who apparently was literally only going along for the ride. The rest of them are trash.
