Police in Opelika Alabama Bust people not paying child support by offering them free football tickets
Those of you who have never been to the USA might not know this but Police in America regularly and routinely use entrapment techniques to bust bad guys. A lot of the times like the case of the dateline show that shows Chris Hansen busting potential child molesters is what is called entrapment. A lot of people might never have even "potentially" committed a crime if the police didn't entrap them.
James Johnson the first guy in the video was so excited that he won the tickets he was oblivious to the fact he was about to be arrested.
Why on earth the local news media were there I'm not sure, but that's how things are done in America, set up a sting, and bust ordinary citizens who would have done nothing wrong anyway, entrap them, and use the local and national news to sensationalize it. Now these people weren't paying their child support, ok, but did they have to put their faces on the news like they did here. This wouldn't fly in Australia or England.
Entrapment should be made illegal, it happens in Thailand too. Like the case about the couple who were soliciting sex on the Internet. Police posed as potential customers and then busted them. This happens a lot in Thailand.
Where the Opelika Alabama police department right in luring the offenders in by sending them letters and then showing their faces on the news? I don't think so do you? Comments please.
