A California judge tossed out a case against a former Navy man caught in a sting orchestrated by the NBC program in part because the show's producers engage in entrapment.

clearly the evidence is in the chat logs that the crime was being commited prior to the entrapment
a.k.a - sending illicit photos to minors
sending the photos to a agent who is not 13 though .
would it make you guys feel better if the person the predator was talking to was a real 13 year old girl ? When sending the photos and the things he would like to do to him or her?
would that justify this ?
i don't believe there is any case of entrapment here
nbc helped out alot of people by airing it and woke up many to the dangers of it .
Im sure many predators have thought twice about the consequences after watching date line
at the end of the day is it not about childrens safety and education for the masses?
what if it was not entrapment and it was a real 13 year old girl ? would you perfer nbc never have stepped in and those girls and boys violated ?
Atleast NBC tried to do something positive with there media power and bringing in pedophiles ?
what have the rest of you arm chair champions of justice done lately?

I agree with the Judge on this one. How do you have a crime against a child, when there is no child?
