This past Tuesday, Dateline NBC aired the second of two "To Catch a Predator" stories filmed in Murphy.
When the sting was in progress in November, 2006, it set off an intense debate in the community. Among the issues brought out in the town hall meeting: Citizens said they didn't feel safe because the Internet predators were being lured to their town. Some said the Murphy Police Department shouldn't work with Perverted Justice. On the flip side, many citizens fully supported the operation, with several residents offering their houses for the next sting. They said it was important for the police to do everything they could to take the Internet predators off the screen, so to speak.
In November, Murphy was a town divided.
What about now, four months later? Now that more details of the operation have been released (Murphy Monitor, 11/23/06), have those against the sting changed their opinion? Have those who supported the operation changed their mind, or do they still back the blue?
Please post your thoughts.
