So cops can just go around offering people drugs and if they buy them they get to bust them?

Anyways it seems the cops are now taking their lessons from Youtube pranksters.



Next they should do some clown scare pranks. If people fight back then bust them for assault. Or something there abouts.

People are reaching again...


Bait cars have been a thing for a while. The entraptment argument has been had, denied and defeated by law. I don't see why adding more high theft items into the vehicle changes anything.


So you say them adding Nikes is racist?

I say you saying that "adding Nikes is racist" is racist.

What about this has anything to do with race other then assumptions about blacks and Nikes.

Geez. This is nothing new. Cops have been doing this forever. People are acting like they never heard of this before.

And it has been upheld in court and is completely legal, if a person is not forced to do something that they did not want to do.

Yeah. For putting a career criminal in jail, good plan.

For busting a ghetto kid, wonderful. Right?

You just projected that, I didn’t say anything like any of that.

Its not entrapment by any means.

Do you think the point won't be raised at trial?
I think that will likely be the only possible defense. You are correct, it is complicated.

A judge would hammer them, a jury would probably be the luck of the draw.

For most of us this is as simple as don't steal, it's a crime and a crap thing to do.

If these kids took an opportunity to steal, it is doubtful that it was the first time, or would have been the last time.
This is not the only thing that was ever out there to steal.

You know this, how?

Maybe a loaf of bread?

I swear that most people on this site these days either argue semantics, are doing some devil's advocate debate or just refuse to give up on a poorly constructed knee jerk opinion devoid of any logical basis.

It's getting sad.

You have a problem with a devil's advocate approach?
You think Socrates had it wrong?

Poor people tend to steal more. So lets go down to the projects and bait some poor bastards.

You dont think this is kind of predatory?

Like hey lets go down to the methadone clinic and bait junkies with dope.
