PlayStation executive fired after pedophilia allegations

George Cacioppo, Sony's Senior Vice President of the PlayStation Network since 2013, has been fired after allegedly being featured in a video by the vigilante, pedophile sting operation group People v. Preds. A member of the channel had been posing as a 15-year old on grindr and received nude photos from "Jeff", alleged to be Cacioppo by the group, and arranged to meet for sex. In the video, a member of the group approaches a home and addresses the man standing in the doorway, wearing a PS5 t-shirt, as Jeff, and admonishes him for arranging to meet up with an underage person for sex. "Jeff" quickly closes the door and refuses to engage, even as the man threatens to phone the police.

In the description for the video, there is a Google Drive link to screenshots of the alleged chat logs between "Jeff" and the operators of the People v. Preds account. The screenshots show two different conversations, one on October 10, 2021, which did not result in a meetup, and one on December 3, 2021, the day the video was posted and appears to end with them arranging a meetup. In the chat logs, "Jeff" exchanges many pictures with the minor, and in one selfie is seen wearing the same PS5 t-shirt as in the video. He is also aware he is speaking to a minor and provides his address so they can meet up.

In a statement to Cnet, a Sony spokesperson confirmed that Cacioppo had been fired. "We are aware of the situation and the employee in question has been terminated from employment," reads the statement sent to Cnet. Also, in a correspondence with Kotaku, the People v. Preds account claims they released this information publicly rather than simply handing it over to police because "the police department doesn’t work with ‘Cyber groups’ like us. That’s when the internet takes over.” However, since then, the "evidence has been turned into the authorities." There is no news yet of legal action being taken as a result of the sting.

PlayStatio’s really going for broke after the gender discrimination lawsuit, huh.
I guess it was too long since the PSN hack for the universe in terms of PS-involved crime.

A senior vice president should be rich enough to afford to fly to a country with legalized prostitution and have legal sex with several different 18 year olds every day.

Correct terminology aside, he's a sick fuck for trying to get going with a 15 year old.

"Twinks" as they're called in the gay community are young men, so do some not mind the age difference? Still, that's illegal so when they're caught, they deserve their punishment.

Unfortunately no criminal charges, he will likely go back to being a predator and he probably has a ton of money already saved up for retirement
Well, that's how the system works. People up high have it one way, we have it a different way.

A man or a woman steals a piece of bread and gets arrested, while a millionaire rapist or pedo gets scot-free. Celebrities and politicians talk about "SaVe tHe WoRlD" all the while they go around the world in their private jets. lol

Politicians favorite teen girl without a script:

If he wanted to have sex with 18 year olds, he wouldn't be a pedo.
My point is he could have experienced having sex with a young person without suffering any consequences. It probably wouldn't feel the same if he's not breaking the law but its a compromise between what he wants and safety.

He has already been punished to an extent. Publicly shamed and fired. Ostracizement is painful. Even without any criminal charges he might be denied entry to foreign countries. Members of the public will track his movements until he dies.

It is so unfortunate that there are so many sexual predators/discrimination in gaming. It's already an area with an enormous amount of stress for people working in the industry. The employees are not always paid enough for the work they do, and not to mention overworking, followed by exhaustion.

My only hope is that all these people are found out, fired and prosecuted. I'm sure this has been always the case, and only now more voices are being raised (which is a good thing).
Absolutely disgusting to see this.
Please do not support companies that close an eye to these issues.

I am happy to see when ever one of these people get caught. That said, I think we need a separate containment system for child molesters as it is not uncommon for them to get the royal hell beat of of them if not brutally murdered when they attend a regular prison...
...were prisoners and guards seem to think it normal to have sex with each other...

That said, we will not see the people involved in the Epstein case become exploited. No Hollywood stars, no politicians, no business men, media faces, judges, bankers, clergy men, etc. unless of course they them selves have upset someone or rather a group within the "elite", in which case they become the fall guy.

Likewise, we will not see a return to more sensible days when temptations like crass sexuality, theft, violence, etc. were not honored and praised upon the TV and Theater screens nor braodcast on the radio 25 hours a day. This effects the adult populous and does not serve our health nor sanity, and it most especially effects children, hence the sudden and massive surge/trend of gender dysphoria cases or cases where children are becoming sexual (groomed) way before puberty has began. We feed into the very powers that make these realities true and wide spread and we have only our selves to blame.

    it's better to learn on your own, it goes much faster than the snail pace they teach you at in school

  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembly is actually great, gets you to run everything about 80% faster than C massaged code
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    assembler syntax is dead easy, but "how to put pieces together" logic requires to have in mind the original idea, and the CPU layout, and that's like double the work of C stuff. It's best to write C first, add some unit tests, then go assembly, then run the unit tests
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    it can run faster than compiled code, but modern compilers are really good at optimization and you need to be even better at assembly to do a better job
    Gift
  • Coto @ Coto:
    with that all your assembler base will actually work

  • Coto @ Coto:
    even on embedded systems, without a damned debugger
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    syntax is easy but the code is hard to read, you can't look at a piece of code and expect to understand it without looking at all the code around it to see how it all works together so it takes much longer to read the code, it takes longer to write it too because what might be 1 line of code in C might be 20 lines of assembly
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    the language is very simple to understand (because it's barely a language at all) understanding how all the instructions work together to form a whole is another matter, in general it's such a pain to work with that i would never recommend it unless you have a need for it. don't listen to this guy and learn assembly just because you want to make your code run faster, you are wasting your time, but if you run into a situation where your code isn't fast enough even after you enabled -Ofast and you NEED it to be faster, then you can consider assembly
