A Denton County constable drove to a Colorado restaurant on Thursday and called a woman he met through the Internet to let her know he had arrived, according to court papers.High level of visibility? Check. Serving the citizens in a professional manner? Well, if you count being a professional pervert, check.
Instead of Marsha showing up with her 8-year-old daughter for a sexual encounter, he met her colleagues – Cañon City, Colo., police officers.
Larry Dale Floyd, a 62-year-old constable from The Colony, was arrested on suspicion of soliciting to have sex with a child and was charged with seven related crimes, Cañon City police said.
Charges against Mr. Floyd include conspiracy and criminal intent to commit sexual assault on a child, pandering of a child, inducement of child prostitution, trafficking in children, criminal solicitation, solicitation for child prostitution and enticement of a child.
In one phone conversation, Rick asked whether Marsha knew any other children. Marsha replied that she had a friend with a 16-month-old boy and 3-year-old girl.
"He wanted us to be able to have my friend's two children for the weekend so we could be sexually active with them also," the officer wrote in the probable cause statement.
Mr. Floyd has been a Denton County constable since 1993. A Republican, Mr. Floyd was unopposed in his most recent re-election in November.
"My promise to the people was to have a high level of visibility and to serve the citizens in a professional manner," Mr. Floyd wrote on the Web site for his Constable's Office.
What the hell is it with these people? And exactly how much of this crap am I going to have to read while simultaneously being lectured by the GOP about how they’re the party of moral values? Get real, you bullshit artists. Your party is full of men who use your cloak of alleged virtue to hide their depraved proclivities, and until you can purge your ranks of this inordinate number of elected perverts and quit peddling your godliness under the guise of hatred, I don’t want to hear anything more about how you’re so superior to the rest of us mere mortals, whose greatest transgression is simply not worshipping your hypocrite king.
