A New York City police officer pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he plotted to kidnap, torture, cook and eat at least 100 women.

Authorities say Gilberto Valle, who has been denied bail, pulled  photos, names and addresses of potential victims from a confidential law enforcement database.

Valle entered the plea in federal court in Manhattan. Authorities arrested the 28-year-old New York Police Department officer last month based on a tip from his estranged wife.

The operative words in this report are..."based on a tip from his estranged wife." Think about it. Cook and eat 100 women. Only an estranged wife could concoct that kind of accusation. I would not have sufficient time to perform my duties were I to kidnap, torture, then COOK 100 women! Forget about the time spent eating them. That would be a dead give-away with fellow LEO's watching me eat a "Hand Burger" or "Roasted Rump."

This is going to be interesting to see how this plays out. Honestly it sounds a little far-fetched. Or a LOT far-fetched.

Leonard Mather-you're kidding, right? How did his x or "estranged" wife set his nutty as* up? She hacked into his PD and FCIC/NCIC/DHSMV and gathered ALL this confidential info to set him up...bulls*it!!! Unless his soon to be x is some kind of computer genius, he's a whackjob who was on the verge of EATING A CHICK-and more then likely, MORE THEN ONE!!! We aren't talkin about a guy who's vindictive x put forged notes on someone's windshield or made fake domestic reports on him-he's been full on busted accessing CONFIDENTIAL records and gathering INTEL like a serial killer/stalker..the chances of a female x having that computer saavy knowledge and to frame him for being a future CANNIBAL, not to mention DREAM up something SO HENIOUS and against NATURE is ABSURD. Clearly you are not a cop because common cop sense/evidence (not the kind on CSI: Miami or your own personal bad female experiences) would dictate that if it looks like a cannibal/serial killer, walks like a serial killer/cannibal, and TALKS ONLINE TO OTHERS LIKE A SERIAL KILLER/CANNIBAL it probably IS ONE-DUH, BRO..the chances of her dreaming up such an IN-FREAKING-SANE scenerio to set him up is like .05%..I've known plenty of crazy, angry wives and they will typically go with the he-molested-our-kid-type-scenerio ..a less then zero percentage of women would come up with something so horrifying for merely revenge...not IM-possible, but nowhere NEAR a set up scenerio from the craziest x..
