"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelologus
What if I hide the URL with another word or picture, and make someone click into it?
By the way, according to WiKi:
“Entrapment is the act of a law enforcement agent in inducing a person to commit an offence which the person would not have, or was unlikely to have, otherwise committed.”
Of course links "can't be spoofed or disguised" right?
Click Here if you support the troops and Love the USA!
Get the picture now?
So what is to stop somebody from finding out the URL for the link, and just for grins, put that link on their page, and label the link as something like, “Click here for more information....”, to trap unsuspecting people into clicking on the link?
It's not entrapment because it leads to a search warrant, not an arrest (at least for not clicking the link).
>>Its not entrapment because no one is forcing you to seek out child porn or illegal drugs.<<
Let’s be honest now. If you knew the address where these “bad buttons” are, wouldn’t you be scared to even touch that site? I have accidentally moved meetings in Outlook by indadvertantly left clicking as I drug my mouse across them.
Also, although I would not expect to find myself on the sites in question, I could imagine a guy, bored at his computer, noticing one and just thinking, wonder what that REALLY is, and on a lark clicking the button. Maybe even immediately wondering what he was doing and leaving before the “fake video” even has a chance to start playing.
Heck, before Limewire had an adult content filter, I used to get all sorts of hits on “underage, pre-teen, xxx” and used to wonder, “gee, if I clicked on one of those, would I be a registered sex offender the rest of my life?” Of course that’s different than a web page, and I was not the least bit interested in clicking on one, but on more than one occasion the list was populating as I tried to click on one song or video and ended up with downloading the one above it as the list shifted without my knowing it. With my lists I only ended up with the wrong file though, not a “bad” one.
This whole thing is silly and dangerous. Any judge that actually thought this through would AT THE VERY LEAST require the person to get past a “this site contains nude pictures/video of underage boys and girls. You must be over 18 to enter this site. Click yes to proceed” page.
Even that is too invasive of privacy, but the fact that they won’t even go that far shows that something is seriously askew here.
It gives me the creeps.
So what happens when some douchebag get the URL and hyperlinks it into an eMail to you that say’s “JoeBobs Excellent Gun deals” just because they don’t like you and it redirects you to the nanny states “please bust me now” child porn site??? You think the Feds are gonna just say “oh, obviously we weren’t after you so we won’t still take this opportunity to trash your house and possessions and maybe even find something completely unrelated”.
Are you freakin’ high? This is bulls**t GSG and if you can’t noodle it out as such you need to go back and take Liberty 101 over again.
If people were sick of pervs they do the only thing that cures them, lock them up forever or kill them. This applies to a huge amout of other crap too. You could have the same answer for 1099’s and all the financial crap.
20 years ago there were people using that same dumbass line about how “Well golly Bob, if you don’t have anything to hide you shouldn’t worry” and now days we put up with RIDICULOUS financial bulls**T and you know F***in’ what, DRUGS ARE STILL EVERYWHERE!!!
