Why would the Khmer media come up with that story Eric? That's fucked up.

Eric are you the person who is the subject of the Oregon sex or porn court records? That's an easy one. When you refuse to answer it, you look really squirrelly.

Okay, if you are going to talk, can you shed some light on why there would be so much attention from local coppers and especially from embassy personnel over a visa overstay. That is unprecedented and not they way it works.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

No I am not. I already said that and have no idea how you are pinning some dude from oregon to me. Where are you getting your information from? The story says nothing about oregon.

Theres an Eric David Erdman born on 4/1/78 subject of Wisconsin court records. I think that's sniper_m4. He looks that age from his photos.

Another Eric David Erdman is from Portland Oregon born in June 1972.

I believe sniper_m4 is not the subject of the Oregon court records. He was probably followed and approached/detained due to suspicion he was the guy.

I put nothing past Khmer media. Completely unreliable, corrupt and unethical. Little better than tuktuk talk.

Do you believe you were mistaken for that Oregon guy? Did the topic come up during your detention?

Pedo Eric David Erdman is from Portland Oregon born in June 1972.

I believe sniper_m4 is not the subject of the Oregon court records. He was probably followed and approached/detained due to suspicion he was the guy.



This is my take too. I suspect the authorities and even the embassy thought he was the other Erdman and got it totally wrong. They likely arrested him on a visa charge suspecting he was the pedo (explaining why the embassy was there) and then realized they got it spectacularly wrong.

Eric what did they say when they arrested you? Did they give a reason there or later? How come you were released eventually?

I have no idea why it is recieving so much attention but as I clearly stated the story is false and I was detained for expired visa overstay.

No, you didn't say it before. You just kept calling the entire article "a lie" and said you were not "from Oregon," which is quite different from saying "I am not the subject of the Oregon court records"

I did not bring up Oregon here or try to pin it on you. Four other posters mentioned it before I pressed you for a definitive clarification, which you have now given, and which I actually believe. I'm the one trying to explain to everyone that you are actually from Wisconsin and that there is another Eric Erdman in Oregon on Facebook who doesn't look like you.

If sniper is saying the truth, he should sue for defamation. Khmer politicians use the new law all the time, so he should also be able to use it...

FYI, I'm pretty sure i recognize the KTM parked by the barber shop.

Yes I am from Wisconsin. Not Oregon. Perhaps the media got their information crossed. I dont know. A friend sent me the news article and I almost shit my pants.
