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.

Not quite, unless you're saying there was porn movies in ancient Greece and Rome? I'm pretty sure this has always been around, it just wasn't illegal until pretty recently.. and even now the world can't seem to agree what the right age should be. I've seen some villages where an old man can marry a 12 year old girl, it's disgusting.
Yeah, you are right... it does existed in Ancient Greece and Rome but porn movie doesn't existed in ancient time. However, the porn movies is a bad influence and those sick and disgusting sexual predator and things like that are increase worse in years to come. No, we can't stop the porn movies because it is a billion dollars industry. Nothing we can do about it. To prevent ? Never. Crazy world.

No surprise a woke company censorship happy like Sony had some like this

What the fuck does that mean? You anti-"Woke" people are so desperate to slam "Woke" things that you're just crashing edgy shit together haphazardly and calling it a point. Stop doing that, it looks stupid.

The classic "die pedo scum" and "i hope he is raped and tortured in prison".
hmm, maybe instead of advocating for killing people that have a clear mental illness, we try to get them help and rehabilitate them?

Help them what? Pedophiles don't stop being pedophiles. There's no "help" for that, they know what they're doing, they know it's illegal, that's why they have to use the dark web and Grindr and all these underground methods for trying to indulge their sexual fetishes. They chose it and the consequences of it should make them examples of why you should not act on your lust just because you have it.

Yeah, it's "sick", but there's no medicine for it. You don't "help" these people, you remove them from the equation because what they did still exists to this day. The kid they raped will never not be haunted and disturbed by it. There's no medicine for that, either. If it's a "mental illness" that does that, then it just means some mental illnesses make you garbage and deserving of your own awful life and fate. There is simply no excuse for it or humanizing here, pedophiles do not deserve pity or mercy, they deserve unending pain in this world and every world after it forever.

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:


Love the video of the swedish doom goblin!! Clueless child. go back to school love, you clearly need your education :D

You do realize that pedophile and child molester are not synonymous, correct? Many of them are otherwise normal people who have never touched a child and never will. They've only the misfortune of being burdened with one of the worst mental states imaginable. On the flip side, the majority of currently imprisoned child molesters likely aren't pedophiles at all based on current research. Are they better people in your eyes than those non-offending pedophiles?

If you look at the rest of my post, I clearly outlined 2 solutions that have shown effectiveness into reducing pedophilic tendencies. I'm sure there's more.
I'm not against charging pedophiles who act on their sick desire with a crime, and sending them to jail, (although it would be cool if the prison system focused on rehabilitation too) but pedophiles probably don't try to seek help before they abuse a child because their condition is stigmatized to the point where people like you advocate for their death.
We should always try to help people, because that's what humans do. If we follow your line of reasoning and kill them because of their mental illness, something they can't control, that's not too far off from straight up eugenics.

Pedophilia ain't a sickness, kiddos. You can't take pills and stop being a predator. You can't go to therapy and change how you view kids. There ain't no rehabilitation for these types. Especially not if they've acted on their sick urges and desires. This isn't like a bipolar disorder. It's not like alcoholism. It's not depression, or anxiety. You can't take Tamiflu and be better in 2 days. Stop side stepping the issues. Thank you!

its almost like theyre born that way.. regardless on how you view it. pedo doesn't = predator or rapist. actions do.
an unfortunate soul who's attracted to kids and does nothing is not the same as a serial child rapist. it absolutely is a mental health issue, just like MANY things wrong in world today. the lack of mental health awareness is one of the biggest issues on the planet

Your conflation of 'woke' with Sony's censorship of whatever is unfortunate.

If Sony were 'woke' they'd be enlightened to systems of discrimination, how they function and to what benefit.

However, since Sony are a tech giant and significant corporate power rather an individual who's learned a few things outside of school textbooks and wants to help build a better world, they are fundamentally incapable of doing anything outside of the pursuit of profit.

When I read / hear someone use the term woke in a sneering, derogatory manner it usually signifies that they either don't know what the term means and / or that they're opposed to the idea of societal progress (if you count dismantling systems of oppression as societal progress).

As far as this Sony executive being caught attempting to abuse / elicit sex from a 15 year old, Sony seems to acted wisely in their corporate interest to publicly distance themselves from him.

What I find interesting though is why this story is made public as I have no doubt people with similar interests exist in pretty much all high level executive branches in tech (and other industries).

Something about having access to huge wealth seems to lend itself naturally to abusing those without power. Depravity comes with the territory.

so now sony have no ps5 stock and are full of pedos. keep up the good work!

When I was like 14-years-old I had a dude named "Stixx" wanting wanting me to talk dirty to him on X-Band on SNES (online modem thingy with chat boards and email) and let me tell you, it sucked because it didn't have any type of keyboard input so you had to type out the messages using the SNES gamepad.

🤷🏻‍♂️

Shame, I really doubt he's going to get charged formally for this. The evidence just isn't there.
The hunters should have lured him out to a public area to get more out of him or pushed the underage thing in the chat some more. He pretty much shrugs everything incriminating off both online as well as in-person and with a good lawyer will likely just say "lol i didn't mean it" or "lol I misread the conversation and didn't realize he was 15" and get off scot-free.
