The trial Judge was correct the first time.
ROMANS 14:13
“Let us not therefore judge one another any more; but judge this rather, that no man put a stumbling block or an occasion to fall in his brother’s way.”
I, for one, appreciate a little "truth" with my "justice" and there is no truth in an arrest brought about by lies and deception from law enforcement. I am not sure when all of these imaginary scenarios became a way of life for law enforcement. Some say it was when the Supreme Court said that law enforcement did not have to identify themselves as such. I am not sure. What I am sure of is the fact that our citizens are doing "real time" for "unreal crimes". The Bill of Rights ensures that we have a right to face our accuser and in created crimes there is no accuser. There is no victim!
I started researching police causing or bringing about crimes when an entrapment touched me and my family. It has been a nightmare! I have been, however, surprised at the amount of people that find such actions acceptable.
Entrapment is defined as "the luring by a law-enforcement agent of a person into committing a crime".(Per Dictionary.com ) They say that it is only entrapment if the person involved would not have normally committed this crime. Who makes that distinction? The arresting officer? The court? Who? That is my biggest problem with all of this - we have no one policing the police!
Millions of dollars are received by the states to pay for these games so this gives them incentive to carry out such practices.
I remember an America when taxpayers paid police to "protect and serve". Now they lie and deceive to make arrests. My grandson asked me - "so cops can lie?" - I sadly had to respond "yes, they can." As I realized the impact of just what he had asked me I became overcome with sadness and I realized that he will not look at the police with the same vision I had of them as a child. My father was a policeman and I was so proud of him and his integrity!

Cops suck, they aren't your friend. Avoid them at all cost. And if someone is committing a crime and/or enticing you to join in, good chance its a cop or a paid snitch.

One more thing, Thomas Rose, of Delmont, should have had his balls cut off and fed to him. Call it entrapment, call it sickening, call it both. Don't expect anyone to cry for this sicko. Why would you defend this P.O.S?
