The reason I think entrapment should still apply here is this:
A few years ago, a friend was going through a nasty divorce. They were seperated and she was talking with him on the phone. He was getting drunk and, according to him, she was a bit tipsy too. She invited him to come over. Then she called the cops and said her hubby had called her, was drunk, and was on his way over.
He was charged with DUI.
Now, there is really no way for you or I to decide whose version of the truth is to be belived. But, the cops always side with women.
You see the chat logs on PJ. You think these guys are real sickos. Maybe they are. But, who knows what was logged? How much did they leave out?
I'm sure PJ has a few lawyers to make sure they follow the bounds of the law. But it still takes two to tango.
Something else to think about: what law have the pervs broken? You are filming a movie. If someone gets shot in a scene, are you charged with murder? As long as no one dies, chances are, you are safe.
If I chat with someone who is 18, but said she's 14, then I haven't broken a law.
If I meet with someone who is 18 and said she's 14, I still haven't broken a law.
If you have any "schoolgirl" or "babysitter" pr0n, you haven't broken a law...usually.
If an adult pretends to be a child as part of some role-playing fantasy, then no crime has been committed.
PJ does not see it this way.
PJ belives that if I meet a girl who claims to be 18 but is, in fact, 16, then I deserve to be in prison. It does not matter what the girl claimed, I should have known better.
PJ also belives that if I meet a girl who is 18 but claims to be 16, then I deserve prison.
Do you see the lack of parity in this?
