  • I am the person that you are talking about. It is now 2014 and you are right, my life is ruined. I am bankrupt, I live with the knowleage that people out there that don’t know me one little bit, thinks of me as some kind of monster, hiding in the bushes for that little girl to abuse. I am NOT a abuser, never was never will be. I was in that chat room because yes I was a very lonely and depressed person that was seraching for love in all the wrong places. It was all a fanasty that was it all fanasty. Yes I did wrong, but my god how much must a person suffer?.I have graduated from the sex classes that one must endure and pay for.It cost me $8000 a year for 4 yrs,plus over $50,000 for my defense, for talking about fanasty, and yes I didn’t know who was on the other line, again it was all a fanasty. It’s true that there are some really bad people out there just looking to abuse some little child and they do DESERVE all they get, but the people I was surrounded by in my sex offender classes were all good people who made that one stupid decision that forever ruined us. I’m glad I am an older man because it will not follow me to much longer, but I thibnk about the “kids” that will have this over their heads for so many years to come. Thank you James Thomas for sticking up for me and many many others because you are so right in what you say.

  • it is a chat room where people go there to talk about “things”, pretending they are someone they are not for the sole purpose of non threatening, safe, self gradifying sexual release. no one is touched, no one hurt in anyway, and then gets into trouble because someone traps the other person. thats why those rooms exist, for the purpose of pretending, nothing more. tom is a lonely man who has really no social life. it may be strange to some people, but does no one harm. browning is in no way a predator, has never been one is never goinbg to be one. i believer he would rather die then to hurt a child in anyway,especially in the matter that is being talked about. its just too bad that his life is ruined, it will never be the same. he will always have that black cloud over his head. he is now broke because he had to defend hisself, with the possiblity of maybe going to jail. and when he gets out he will be 64, broke, homeless, with no one on his side. its a shame a man who went to war, worked for 26 yrs at the same job, raised kids who are now in college, will be a broken man completely in a matter of time, if he isnt already a broken man. to entrap a person, use words that person said even when not true and ruin that person is sad. this is not justice, it is a lynch mob. he probaly doesnt want to live anymore knowing wht people think of him, and what is going to happen to him. life is really already over for this man, and it is a shame

  • Dear James I would like to point out the obvious

  • how can you just run with info no matter where you get it wheather it is true or not. You just run with, ruin a persons life, then you find out in court that it was not true, but to late you have Ducked up this guys life! too bad it wasnt you here having these things said then see how you might day scott you will find yourself on the wrong end and you are going to flapping your lips, and saying but its not true, its not true, or it must be be cause this guy scott castruita says its true and he knows everything. maybe mistakes could have been made, but who gives you the right to say anything about a person without the proof, i mean isnt that what our system is built on, you are innocent until they prove you guilty, or are you judge, jury and the god almighty. one day you will find yourself on the wrong end true or not, but……you must be guilty because you say everyone is guilty, because your word is true, and you know it all. fall in a hole as i am walking by and see if you get a hand
