Five Internet predators from Western and Central Pennsylvania have been arrested and charged with felonies for sexually propositioning undercover agents they thought were 13- and 14-year-old girls, according to Pennsylvania Attorney General Tom Corbett.
In all five cases, the attorney general's office said, the men approached undercover officers in Internet chat rooms and quickly steered the conversations toward sexual topics
The cops should also be to blame because they're the one that caused someone to commit the crime

I agree with you--there is no excuse for the guys going to have sex with who they thought was a 13 year old. But, the cops enabled it to happen. Had the cops not been there, who knows--nothing may have happened!

I agree with you to a point. However, once someone moves away from fantasy ( chatting about sex online IS fantasy ) and actually goes to meet one of these "kids" then a crime has been committed - whether it be a lapse in judgement or something they do regularly is immaterial.

There's a very fine line between the police catching someone who was going to commit a crime on there own and the police committing entrapment.
