    It's my real name - I use Sir Robert in Ripperology as a feeble attempt at humor.

    Gilgo 4 defense mechanisms

    Here's a snippet and a pdf from the Baltimore talk on what I find to be one of the more curious aspects of this case:

    Defense Mechanisms (Discussion)

    The Internet, and especially sites like Craigslist and Backdoor, has changed the dynamics of the sex industry. It’s enabled many women to avoid the old escort service or pimp system. The clients come to you and you don’t need to share much of the money. With the empowerment however comes danger. Big danger. There’s no way to assess whether a client is a psycho – you don’t get a look at him beforehand. Bear in mind Amber’s sister’s admonition that “8 out of 10 calls nowadays [are] affiliated with drugs” and you have entered precarious territory without a passport for return.

    New York Magazine recently ran a cover article entitled “Is Prostitution Just Another Job?”. There is some interesting material there. First off they report that in one survey of New York City sex workers, 27 percent reported police had used violence against them. It’s important to bear this in mind as one LISK theory is that he is a cop. I’d argue that the Gilgo4 would not have necessarily dropped their normal defense mechanisms just because someone claimed on the phone to be law enforcement. In fact, if what we have read about former Police Commissioner Burke and his fellow cops favoring rough sex are true it might have set off an alarm.
    What is also worth noting is one escort’s safety protocol.

    She takes as many precautions as she can. At first contact on the phone, she listens to clients’ voices to see “if they’re saying things that are weird” or give her “that feeling” in the pit of her stomach. Before agreeing to meet them, she Googles their addresses and looks at their houses. (Anna also requires the info on clients’ driver’s licenses, or two references from other “reputable providers.”) She makes sure a friend knows where she is. For the first meeting, “I have a driver, so when I say, ‘Okay, your session is 45 minutes,’ then I will open the window and show them that the car is parked right outside their house. That’s the way of putting them into the mind-set that people care about me.”
    She considers herself very lucky. “I’ve never really walked into a situation that was super, super terrible,” she says. “I don’t wanna make it seem like I know for sure that this person is safe, because safety is, like, not real.”

    We don’t know the full protocols the Gilgo4 normally followed. (Show slide). But we do know a little. (Discuss slide) It’s clear that they did recognize the dangers of internet prostitution and did take precautions. Yet they all failed to observe them the night they met LISK. Why?
