Lieutenant Brandon Pursell, Commander of the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, says the task force conducts undercover operations in which members pose as children online to identify sexual predators. He says when men show up to meet a child to have sex, it has been made very clear that the person they have been talking to is underage.
 
“People who say we set them up and we’re entrapping them are liars. Plain and simple. They know that they’re meeting with a child,” Lieutenant Pursell says. “It pisses me off to say that this is a victimless crime. These men are showing up to rape a child. These men are predators.”
