I see yet again a man has been caught, filmed, jailed, shamed in the media for attempting to meet a "young boy" for sex. Now, don't get me wrong, I am not condoning sex with minors and yes when caught they should face appropriate punishment. What I really don't like, as in the case I've currently read about, are these groups of vigilantes who create false profiles on apps such as Grindr (where you are supposed to be 18 to use) and have a profile age of 18 or older (I think the one I read about yesterday stated he was 21 on his profile). They then start conversations with men, arrange to meet etc and then tell the guy that they are in fact under 18. The guy still agrees to meet the 15 year old or whatever. It is obviously a trap and they meet some blokes with a camera with the police on their way. You could argue that the guy is not on the app looking for kids but is drawn into it (yes, they should say no) by the hunters. Would such a thing have happened without them? Where they there looking for kids on an app designed for adults? They don't appear to be predators getting caught using teen chat rooms etc, where the sole intention is to get to a child. It is very much entrapment and it wouldn't surprise me if these vigilantes actually get a kick out of what they are doing. I understand that this has led to several suicides. The courts don't see it as them being Agent Provocateurs, but it certainly fits the definition. So, it is not the issue of whether it is right or wrong to meet underage boys for sex, but whether this whole craze of catching the men is right. What do you think?
