Fire Chief John T. Boutin Arrested in Sex Sting

FARMINGTON -- Police arrested Colebrook's volunteer fire chief Wednesday after he showed up at a local restaurant to meet and have sex with what he thought was a 14-year-old boy he'd met on the Internet, police said. The "boy" turned out to a police officer. John T. Boutin, 49, of 31 Eno Hill Road, Colebrook, is in custody with bail set at $100,000, police said.
I think it's great that the police have these stings set up all over the Internet and when they catch some pervert, they publicize it as widely as possible. Now there one less perv on the street and pederasts everywhere will think twice before attempting to make contact with some kid. Bravo.
As for Boutin, I don't suppose he can help who he's attracted to and like the rest of us he probably couldn't change his predilections even if he wanted to. Accordingly, I think they should lock the poor bastard up until he is no longer a threat to children, which may be a very long time.

Wow - empathy and a call for life in prison in the same paragraph - nicely played!
