Should you be imprisoned for a thought? Should websites like darkfetishnet.com be allowed to exist and facilitate conversation about “dark” fantasies?
Dubbed “Cannibal Cop,” Gilberto Valle, a former NYPD officer, was imprisoned for conspiracy to commit a series of grisly murders, involving the kidnapping and cannibalizing of numerous women. He has since been exonerated by a federal judge, who deemed conversations Gilberto had as nothing more than “fantasy role-play.” In one of his first interviews since being released, Paul and Jordan talk to Gilberto about what led to his arrest, the challenges he faces due to his now highly publicized fetish, and his dissatisfaction with the documentary that promised to vindicate him.
