That is called “entrapment” and Ritter should have been able to walk away from such accusations without guilt. :wink:

I have no idea why Ritter never contested based on 'entrapment'. But over the years I have come to learn that there is a great difference between "The Law' and getting Justice. Here .... it is WHO you know that counts! :wink:

Have you ever tried to 'take-on' The Police ..... in Cyprus? :shock:

First problem ..... they close ranks, then they tell lies, never answer the phone, never reply to or acknowledge e-mails or letters and are hostile and uncooperative ! If you still decide to carry on ..... you won't find a Lawyer to take your case, you need to go to one in the EU. Crossing the police can ruin a Lawyer, he gets marked as a trouble maker,

As for the Police complaints dept or the Ombudsperson ........ :D :D :D ........ you are better of talking to a chicken! The system is self servingly and often fraudulently corrupt, from the top down in ALL public service departments. :evil:

So the claim that this was a ”.....completely unprovoked and illegal attack on a peaceful Sovereign State and without any justification” as pronounced by the Western Alliance of US/UK/NATO etc was very far from the true picture of the event. Nobody told you the full story!

Russias actions were also NOT illegal! (Same justification as NATO used for the Serbia attacks but legal. Kosovo was recognised only after the US/UK intervention.) Within the period from 17th to the 23rd Feb, Luhansk and Donetsk declared UDI’s because they were being attacked by their government ....... the Russian Duma recognised both as independent states ...... a responsibility to protect was established between both States and the Russian Federation ..... a request for protection under the R2P was made ....... and at 05:00 hrs on the 24th Feb the Russian Federation responded to Kyiv’s aggression and implemented their Special Military Operation.

Russia was not the aggressor ..... the US backed Regime in Kyiv was. That is a whole different ball game to the one the Western Alliance of deceivers would have you believe. :roll:


He knows everything RH he just plays dumb.
Before the war started his main argument was that Ukraine as a sovereign nation had every right to join Nato, and he was mocking my concerns about Ukraine having 1300 Km land borders with Russia.
Nato is his dream, his life...

He even mocks the Cypriots (he is an expat btw) calling us idiots for not applying to join Nato in the 60s, knowing full well that by the constitution we were only allowed to have 750 militia (GC and TC) with light arms plus 3 Guarantor powers all Nato members. The GC National Guard (headed by a mailand Greek General) was actually illegal/unconstitutional. It only became legal after the 1974 invasion on grounds of necessity....
When exactly could we ever be able to join Nato is beyond me.

Laws have changed ever since, any woman who appears on porn sites has to sign a contact, with all her details ID etc. Visa, Mastercard etc may sue the site with millions if anything like what happened to Ritter happens today.


It's illegal to be grooming young minors for sex on the internet or social media or any other means in both the USA and Australia.

You can even get done in the USA and Australia if the authorities get your metadata and you look at under age porn or sex of minors not of legal age and also other soft porn. The reason for that is because the porn industry takes advantage of young minors and abuses them especially if they are from poor and impoverished nations, bringing about a sex slave industry. This is highly illegal activity.

Yes you can get convicted and go to jail. And many have been convicted too. Happens all the time, especially among people of trust such as police, teachers, priests, and social workers.

People with security clearances and serving their country are vetted continuously by the authorities (every year in fact) - from law enforcement and even espionage agencies like CIA and NSA. This can include phone tapping and other nefarious means at their disposal and they can get very creative. These authorities also take a keen interest in your sex life. For instance, if you are a closeted homosexual who is married, or bisexual. The reason is, you are vulnerable to foreign actors and not about your sexuality per se. Being homosexual or bi though is ok and allowed, if in the open and everyone is aware of it and don't pose a potential security risk to the country.

He got done with grooming minors for sex which is very serious.

That makes Scott Ritter not terribly bright because every officer and service man or woman is vetted by CIA and NSA - down to your family and associates.

It's not just service personnel who cop this. Parliamentarians get it as well - because of their high level security clearances. Even Presidents and Prime Ministers are not immune or out of their reach.

These espionage agencies like the CIA and NSA and FBI have a lot of power and sometimes more power than the President. Their job is to protect the nation from idiots.


There was absolutely no crime because the girl was an undercover police woman of at least 20 y.o.
That was a clear trap set by the Police, targeting Ritter for political reasons.

Did you know that at the time he was convicted his wife was shouting in the court room to keep his head up high and never bow to those crooks? He is still married and lives with his wife while his 2 grown up daughters adore him, and help him do his internet stuff as he is almost clueless.

Whose wife or daughters would ever stand by like that to a real child molester?


The police officer was an undercover agent impersonating an 18 year old and the authorities would have had a warrant to investigate him based on his online activities from beforehand.

In USA and Australia and I am pretty sure many many more other countries, we have undercover agents on the internet and dark web investigating all kinds of things - especially porn, human trafficking, drug trafficking, gun running, organized crime, fraud, and money laundering.

And yes it is a crime to be grooming or conducting sexually predatory behavior to anyone online if they purport to be under age. If you groom an under cover police officer or agent who says they are under age, you have committed a crime, and the authorities can arrest you and convict you if they have enough evidence. That happened to Ritter. He tried to groom a 16 year old minor. And was convicted. Convicted by a jury pf his peers.

Too bad and so sad.

Police do these kind of operations all the time in US and Australia. Just recently, an entire underworld organized crime ring was infiltrated by the FBI and Federal Police (Australia) across 4 continents and that led to the arrest of 800 people, including members of the Sicilian Mafia.

You are now looking at the same information the Russians would have been following very closely leading up to their special military operation in Ukraine. I asked a couple of question which no one has replied to but, the answers to them are:

Although it had been planned and building up prior to the start date from Mid/Late 2021 ......The civil conflict was escalated by the US backed, Ultra-Nationalist Regime in Kyiv, and was manifest to observers on the 15th/16th Feb 2022, when shelling almost stopped for 48hrs as Kyiv regrouped, and then rapidly escalated by orders of magnitude from the 17th Feb until the OSCE stopped monitoring on the 24th Feb, when the Russians responded to Kyiv’s aggression. Most of the shells/missiles/rockets as a result of the escalation, fell to the South/East of the Minsk LoC.

That Russia took this decision probably prevented the genocide of tens of thousands of the Russian speaking Ukrainian minority in Donbas. In the preceding eight years 14,000 people died in the civil conflict ...... but the US et al didn’t notice, they just kept sending the Kyiv Regime more weapons for their genocidal war!

The following extracts from the OSCE reports over that period show that statement to be factually correct. The OSCE only collect facts. The following is taken from the report for each 24hr dated period ........ from the 10th Feb to the 24th Feb 2022. You can access all the full reports and computer generated maps from here:

He did contest everything with his legal representation and he lost.

Authorities have a right to investigate as long as they have a warrant and suspected him of a crime for an ordinary citizen.

However, it is a little different for Ritter as he comes under the States Secret Act and that opens him up to a lot of things from the countries Secret Services who will see all his skeletons and dark secrets. What happens then is they get hand-balled to the FBI which is a law enforcement agency, who will then go and see a District Attorney for warrants and conduct their investigations.

And then the FBI conducted their investigation. Then they arrested him, and he was convicted.

Believe me. I know about State Secret Acts. Been living under that dark shadow for nearly 20 years, even as a contractor for a long period. You can go to jail for 7 years even for a minor violation. And you can't do anything. If you cheat on your wife, they will find out about it. You might think that is unimportant but to them it is important because in their eyes they believe you become a target and vulnerable to foreign state sponsored influence.

If you are active on porn sites, they will know about it. If you try and groom minors they will know about it and report you to the Federal Police. Sexual preferences - they know about them as well.

It's because the law in the US punishes "intent" even those expressed verbally, with up to 10 years in prison either the person proceeds to execution of the intended crime or not.
Not so in the EU. The police has to set the suspect under surveillance, and collect evidence he was on the way of executing the intent.

The American system is flawed in many ways. While it's very fast and effective in locking every possible child molester behind bars, it also swipes many innocent on the way.
Entrapment is also allowed in the US when there was a previous complain by a parent.The parent's testimony is not required by the Court which takes it for granted there was one.
This leaves the police plenty of room for a setup.

That's called proper law enforcement.

If you plan a terrorist attack on the dark web, or plan to kill someone, then yes that is intent and as far as I am concerned, its the job of law enforcement to prevent these terrible acts from even taking place in order to protect the general public and society at large and the targeted potential victims.

If you were going to groom a 14 year old for instance for sex, then law enforcement needs to take every step to prevent that 14 year old from being harmed by a sexual predator, not sit by and let it happen before they arrest the scumbag. That's what law enforcement must do. I am pretty sure that all of us who have children expect that.

Ritter is very careful and often refuses to answer questions when he has to reveal secrets he is not allowed to, while he always explains the reason.
He was never accused or convicted of anything like that.

What made him a target was his courage as a Chief inspector, to say that after years of investigation they did not find a single trace of any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, which was the excuse behind the American Invasion. That was not a State secret anyway. Biden was then a Senator and at a public hearing told him "you did your job and we thank you for that, and so the people who make crucial decisions were wrong. But those people are BEYOND YOUR PAY RANGE". :!: :!: :!:

There's a video in youtube, watch it.
