Bloomberg plans to disarm New York women, and give police lots of firepower.
A New York police officer was convicted on Tuesday in a bizarre plot to kidnap, torture, kill and eat women.
The officer, Gilberto Valle, 28, could be sentenced to life in prison for one count of kidnapping conspiracy.
The verdict came on the 12th day of his trial in United States District Court in Manhattan.
The officer was also convicted of illegally gaining access to a law enforcement database that prosecutors said he had used to conduct research on potential victims. He faces up to five years in prison on that count, prosecutors said.
The trial had drawn widespread attention in part because it involved a police officer’s bizarre and disturbing behavior, but also because it highlighted some of the darkest corners of the Internet, where fetishists hide behind Web identities like Girlmeat Hunter, which Officer Valle used, and engage in role-playing fantasy about cannibalism and sexual torture.
