Why dirty cops must be banned from Facebook
A DIRTY cop used Facebook to urge underage girls to take part in threesomes and send him naked photos, a judge heard today.
Prosecutor Fiona Thompson said that during a year of online offending Senior Constable Paul Raeck, 34, bombarded seven victims with sexually explicit suggestions and continually asked some of the girls to have sex with him.
Ms Thompson said the girls were aged between 13 and 15 and when they were interviewed by police they described Raeck as "creepy'' "gross'' and "weird'' and they were concerned when he suggested meetings.
Raeck set up a fake Facebook page in the name of Zane Harrison, a good looking tradie in his late teens and his profile picture was taken from a male modelling agency on the internet.
Ms Thompson said Raeck hounded some of the girls with lewd suggestions and one said that whenever she logged on to her Facebook site he would immediately contact her.
He told one 15-year-old victim she was "pretty hot and sexy'' , asked for a photo of her breasts, suggested a threesome with his 27-year-old mate and asked her to "go parking''.
Raeck asked the girls to use a webcam to pose naked for him or flash their boobs and told them he was "getting horny'' and masturbating to their profile photos.
Ms Thompson said the victims mainly ignored his requests and suggestions but one 13-year-old girl removed her jumper while he watched her on a webcam but then stopped when her mother entered the room - Herald Sun Australia
