If your boyfriend had taken the bike, he would have deserved to be arrested. Stealing is a crime.


And what if the boyfriend's intent was to take the bike home and call the cops to report it as found property but the cops catch him before he ever has the opportunity to call the cops?

This is a class separation tactic and I don't like it. They should leave a backpack full of coc aine in a rich neighborhood and see what happens.

then it wouldn't be America would it.

kinda like the opiod crisis is a 'medical' issue as opposed to calling out a war on drugs and destroying lives for ounces of weed, which is now legal.

People making excuses for criminals is part of the problem with society.

Crime pays in today's world.



Very good point.
The lack of basic morals in this thread is astounding.
What the heck is wrong with people today?



those pretending to not know what's happening here is the lack of moral here, and lack of humanism.

sounds like you already convinced your subconscious this is right.

What I can't wrap my brain around is people who want less government supporting this.

Entrapment is when a person is forced or coerced to do something that they normally would not do.

You are mistaken. What you describe is duress or coercion.



Youre saying that blacks cannot resist a free truckload of premium sneakers so it shouldnt be against the law?

Dont we make enough excuses for them already?

Do you really think that these same people would never have stolen anything just because the police did not put something there?




We will never know, will we?

Not everyone that comes from the ghetto or the projects is a thief.

Much better uses of time and money, I don't like it, certainly doesn't promote goodwill between LEO's and the public.


But how much sense does it make in real life — a high-tech, high-priced crime pursuit that mostly gleans low-hanging fruit?

I think it's supported because it puts "undesirables" into the crime database.
Especially good for those who have no police record yet. Now they can be tracked.

It's just an awful, racist thing to do.

Why not bait an Ivy League College with Cell phones and tablets?
There would be takers, we all know there would be.
oh, those ornery college boys and their pranks!

I suppose one answer would be to park cars full of donuts and Barry Manilow records, near the police stations.
Irresistible to some "types" of people yeah?

While police were focusing on this "major sting entrapment", 3 people were murdered not far away in separate incidents.

Chicago police priorities are all screwed up.

I wouldn't have a problem with that either. Round up all the people without the ability to not take things that don't belong to them.

The one I really don't like is when they stage a $5000 bicycle just so they can tag some idiot with a felony.

Entrapment, btw, is typically reserved for when the police actually encite someone to break the law. The FBI asking someone to take part in a faux-bombing should be entrapment. If the police had someone undercover saying, "I will give you $75 for each box of Nikes you drop at my shop later" or "hey, I'll give you $100 bucks if you nab that bike for me" and hands him a pair of bolt -cutters then they would be enciting a crime. Just giving people the opportunity to break the law isn't entrapment.

You may not have a problem with it, But I just don't think that scenario would ever play.
I just don't think they would try this entrapment game on kids that had lawyers for parents.
too hard.

Go Ghettem in the Ghettos.
They have no money to fight the charges there. Probably not many decent role models. Probably a rough time growing up.
and now a criminal record.

Well, you're wrong. There are bait bike programs on nearly every university, for example.

The problem is it is a method to entice people to do something they normally would not, nor were they planning on doing it. Why not set up a really nice tax "loop" for people who make over a million per year that is basically illegal, but is seen as easy thing to do with zero chance to get caught, other than it is a full sting and everyone who does it goes to jail.

Well true and they are after people who purposely steal bikes... throw 100 dollar sneakers in the back of an open car in a poor area and I see that as something different. Kind of like offering a fat kid ice cream and then busting him for eating something that will help make him fatter...
