LOL. You have no idea what "entrapment" means, do you?
Entrapment applies when a person is persuaded by a law enforcement officer to commit a crime that they never had any intention of committing before the law enforcement officer got involved in the situation. For example . . . an off-duty or undercover cop who goes out and challenges another motorist to a drag race cannot have that motorist arrested for reckless endangerment or some similar charge.
In order for entrapment to occur in the Gov. Walker "phone call" incident, two conditions would have been needed: (1) the person making the phone call would have needed to be a law enforcement officer, and (2) Gov. Walker would have needed to commit a crime. Nothing remotely resembling either condition was involved here.
The only person who might legitimately claim that they were somehow harmed in this case is Gov. Kohl of Wisconsin, and this would only be true if the caller had done something to defraud or harm HIM. And I'm no lawyer, but in this case that would seem to be a civil matter, not a criminal matter.
Hello and thanks for the clarification. Unfortunately, I had simply considered the possibility that entrapment could be something outside of the bounds of law enforcement. Upon further research, I discovered all manner of definitions, in many nations other than our own, with all except Germany, indeed defining it in terms of law enforcement or government only. Again, thank you for the correction. I always learn something here.
I am wondering though who Gov. Kohl is? I googled that phrase, and confirmed a Senator Kohl from Wisconsin, but found no gubernatorial connection.
Anyway, aside from the entrapment, I still hold that the intent was to injure Gov. Walker, and therefore some charges could be filed, if such laws exist in Wisconsin, or New York. Hopefully, more knowledgeable folks will pursue this if it is indeed a viable option.
and May God bless.
Gov Kohl? Old news his name is Walker .... Update needed...btw its absolutely a crime...
