'Cannibal Cop' Says Plot to Kidnap & Cook Women Was Just Fantasy & He Can Prove It (VIDEO)

Twisted 8

Remember the demented and bizarre case of the 'Cannibal Cop'? He's the New York City police officer who was arrested after his wife found messages on his computer indicating that he was plotting to kidnap and cook at least 100 women. He also allegedly illegally accessed a law enforcement database on various women whom he wanted for dinner. In one of his sickest moments, he allegedly wrote he wanted to set up an apparatus to cook a woman over a "slow flame" and keep her alive as long as possible.

From the get-go disgraced cop Gilberto Valle's defense has been that this was all fantasy talk.

He and his lawyer claim that he never had any intention of carrying out his plans of cooking women -- and it was all just some big online game. In fact, he's demanded that prosecutors give him the names of at least 20 other sickos he would chat with online about "violent sexual fantasies" so he can bring them on the stand and prove this was all just a bunch of bizarro blather. Says Valle's public defender:

Indeed, effective trial preparation could uncover facts critical to Mr Valle’s defence in that the individuals with whom Mr Valle was chatting likely will corroborate that they were engaging in fantasy role play with no intention of acting on their fantasies.

Does that make anyone feel better? Frankly, it doesn't make me feel better. Additionally, if none of it means anything, then WHY was Valle allegedly gathering REAL information on women, including their names and addresses?! You don't use real money when you play sicko sexual monopoly.

What's really shameful here is this guy was a cop. He's supposed to have the public's trust. And since police reportedly have "hundreds of thousands" of emails and IMs between Valle and his cannibal pals, this isn't something that he just did once and awhile. Sounds like it was ALL he did. And how scary is it that there are so many others just like him out there?! If Valle gets his way and these other men are named, there could be some very shocked wives and girlfriends.

Should people get jail time for sick fantasies? Should the other men's names be released?

I'm willing to bet that ever single serial killer in the history of the world fantasized about their kills before committing them so I don't really see what difference that makes. There is absolutely no way for his lawyer to prove that his fantasies could not have become realities. And the amount of preparation he put into said fantasies shows me he fully intended to carry out his plans one day. Yes, he deserves jail time.

Yes and yes. This doesn't sound like a fantasy, it sounds like an actual plot. He and all of his sick friends should be punished for attempted murder. Why is this still even being talked about as if he wasn't serious? Because he's a cop?

Do the women he put on his "hit list" know that he targeted them? Did investigators fill them in, has anyone heard?


Slippery slope

I agree with PRIMA this is slippery slope as much as I think this scumbag should be off the street and is a danger to society he didn't actually commit a crime, yet. Aconviction could create precedence for "thought crimes" but hey just one more thing Orwell was right about.

jessi... jessicasmom1

ahhha just like a cop .. to include who he role played with

Good thing he was caught or he'd be playing the real-life version of the "Cooking Mama" game!

Seems like he wasn't just fantasizing about these disgusting things but rather prepping to commit them as well. Hope he goes to jail & dies.
