But dear, Officer Darling did not arrest Mr Doe for grabbing his crotch to say hello, he waited until after he agreed to have sex with him and then arrested him for a booty tooch into his crotch. It was why Mr Doe's conviction was overturned. You can't be arrested for consensual foreplay, even if it is with an undercover cop. Sorry.<quoted text>
Maybe it is time YOU read the story. "Darling saw Mr. Doe on a trail hiking toward him. As they passed each other, Darling said hello. Doe grabbed his groin." Since when is saying "hello" initiating sex? Oh, of course, on Planet Gay, where EVERYTHING is about sex. I say hello to dozens of people in the course of a week. Not once has anyone ever grabbed my groin. I guess I have just been lucky that I haven't said hello to any gays.
You're right about one thing, this sort of activity really doesn't need to be going on in a public park, but there are better ways to address it than badly thought out, ridiculously executed, undercover police stings. Uniformed patrols and closing the park at night, usually will send the folk who do such things elsewhere
