NEW YORK -- A New York City police officer charged with plottingto kidnap, torture, cook and eat at least 100 women had discussed having"girl meat" for this week's Thanksgiving holiday.

Prosecutors sayGilberto Valle made the remark in an online chat in February with anunidentified man. They read the transcript during Valle's bail hearingTuesday in federal court.

Valle was quoted as saying that he was getting a plan in motion to abduct a woman for the holiday meal.

His lawyer has said the alleged plot was pure fantasy.
