you Cannot judge a person by his look!!!! that's just pure non sense..
The article also sounded like they were meeting for the first time before the police intervened.
lets say he is a pedo but still not guilty until proven.
It was more or less a joke.. I said he could pass for a pedo.

The whole legal system is a bunch of FUD. It's also very oriented against screwing up males lives as opposed to vice versa. There are woman out there who do the same thing and get away with it scott free or if they get charged it's not with some type of sexual related charge. The sting setups are a bit iffy too if you ask me because it sounds like baiting the suspect. Although I don't know if the suspect goes out looking for the girl first (as in he's doing it to a bunch of girls and hoping they're kids)? Then the question is what is the real line age wise some 23 year old going after a 17 year old, some 18 year old going after a 15 year old, etc... our legal system is very poorly designed when it comes to this.
That said there are certain limits and boundaries you DO NOT cross. Child Molestation, Child Pornography, Rape, etc... that's all an instant go to jail card however a 20 year old guy (basically someone over 18) going after a 15/16/17 year old it gets kind of iffy.
Sting setups are iffy? Have you watched the dateline episodes?... sure they show the more obvious ones but those mofos know that they are going to see a 13/14 year old girl who is home alone and show up with all sorts of sick stuff. I dont understand how some of you can defend these low lifes. Dont know why you bring up the "age wise stuff"... he is 25 going after a 13 year old... granted he said she told him she was 18 but cmon... drive 10+ hours to go pick up a chick he never met before?...
Off topic since the situation doesnt match the article - I do agree some people get screwed by the system 18/16 year olds but they know the law going into the relationship or whatever. Ignorance is not an excuse..
Ill also disagree that a 20 year old and 15/16 year old should be dating. There is no reason a 20 year old guy should be picking up his girlfriend from high school.... IMO
