Yep, 13 is about when those pesky secondary sexual characteristics pop up.
Well, it's not JUST that I think entrapment is unfair, I just think it's ineffective. Except for on the street molestors, I think as far as the internet is concerned they need to focus on the assholes that are PROVIDING it, not just those who are going for the bait. I think it would save more kids. Who knows how many of these assholes wouldn't have even thought of indulging this sickness unless it was offered? I can just sit here, an overweight, middle-aged mother of two and I get child porn spam. (By the way, you can report it to http://www.asacp.org
, which is what I normally do.)
I think they should spend more efforts finding the distributors. If a perv is a perv, and deals with it and behaves himself, gets counseling, whatever, I have no real issue except pity. But I think that if they want to STOP this, and really protect kids, they need to go after the slave traders and pornographers. This method is just sloppy and I don't think it helps the most kids for the effort. Instead of entrapping these sick perverts, they ought to be entrapping the dealers.
And yes, I think the consenting statuatory thing really just clogs up the system and wastes time, money and effort. We spend all these resources tracking "predators" just because there's a few years difference between them and their girl/boy friend.
