NY - Cop's cannibal fantasies a (thought) crime?

See Also:

We all know the police and government would just love to charge people with "though" crimes (Minority Report), but this raises a question.

If they say they cannot charge him with anything because it's a fantasy, then what about others who have twisted fantasies?

Should viewing child porn be put into the same situation if a person is simply viewing it and has not acted on anything?

NOTE: We are not saying child porn should be legal, we are simply posing a question.

And what about other fantasies where someone thinks about it but has never acted on it? Like threatening someones life? Threatening to bomb something, etc? Should thoughts be a crime? If so, then maybe we should arrest many in the general population for their thoughts!
