BBC News - Webcam sex with fake girl Sweetie leads to sentence
So this is taking the "To Catch A Predator" thing to the next level.A man in Australia is believed to be the first to have been convicted as the result of an undercover sting in which charity workers posed online as a 10-year-old Filipina.
Details of 1,000 men who contacted the fake child, nicknamed Sweetie, were sent to police around the world
The men had requested Sweetie perform sex acts in front of a webcam for cash.
I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this. Obviously there's a lot that's wrong and punishable, but at what point is all this a crime and at what point is it entrapment?
Everything is done online. There's no child. It's all fake.
The flip side is obviously some of these guys are truly sick.
Do you support this kind of police activity and prosecution?
I know some people thought the "To Catch A Predator" show was going too far.
Is this going too far?
