FBI: NYPD Officer Plotted to Cook, Eat Women

An NYPD officer who plotted to kidnap, cook and eat women was arrested by federal authorities Wednesday, according to court documents.

Gilberto Valle, 28, of Forest Hills, who's an officer at the Upper West Side's 26th Precinct, was arrested after a three-month FBI investigation into the horrifying plot. He had a computerized list of 100 women, including a photograph of each one, along with their address and a physical description, according to court documents.

The six-year veteran of the police force then used federal and state law enforcement databases to track down more information about his potential victims and started staking out their homes and businesses, documents said. Investigators have interviewed 10 of the women and all confirmed they know Valle.

    If I was the ACLU guy in charge of corralling opposition to the surveillance state and government databases, I would keep this story bookmarked.

    You know, as much as I'd like to think this pig's goose is cooked, we all know how the double standard works. I wouldn't be surprised if, after a little grilling, they just put the case on the back burner and garnish his wages. It would be rare to see a cop fry for this sort of thing, but if they do pull it off -- well done!

    I'll show myself out.

    So if this guy is convicted beyond a shadow of a doubt, I think he needs a potassium bolus IV. Generally I am opposed to the death penalty but this is just too heinous.
