Most of you admit that there are a lot of predators out there, lot of drug users, coppers thieves, etc. Don't you ever wonder why do they need stings. If they're everywhere, why not catch them doing it. Why do they have to set-up shop to lure them when they're all out there? If they are to dumb to find them, why resort to lies and deception and lower our respect for authority when they lie. It should be unconstitutional for any law enforcement to be allowed to lie. If they will lie to arrest, why not lie to convict. If you condone lying, then fine. In the case of Mr. Fox, he acted on someone, big difference with no victim. Mr. Craig was also caught on a police sting. What is a police hiding in a public bathroom waiting to see if a person does what he perceives is wrong. Now that's creepy.

I cannot understand why you would be happy for the police taking your rights away in their misguided approach to fill our prisons with people that did no crime, except in the minds of the thought police They take away your right to chat with any one you so please, your right to say any thing good or bad. People write sexually explicit best sellers. The police tell you who you can and cannot meet, tell you where you can or cannot go, tell you what is in your mind, what you were thinking, what your intentions are, that you should know her age because I told you so. The list can go on and on, but no space left.

You are sick.
Get help.
He is not sick, he is one of them-a CM.
The state better check the state owned computer in his office and review all his innocent chats and emails with his young constituents. Thats what he will call it when he gets busted. And for him to disguise himself as a republican is a scam.
He sounds like he is trying to sabotage the republican party for the democratics or the democratics really found out how perverted this guy was and kicked him out of the party.

Remove Bartham from office. He certainly doesn't possess the ethics to needed to continue as a state leader!
