I dont know I mean ya I think its retarded that a 32 year old man wants to talk dirty to a 12 year old girl... that is messed up. But at the same time, I dont see how a virtual chat is akin to a sex crime, or w/e it is. I guess internet luring, but does that mean you have to sign up on the sex offenders list??
Its almost like "thought crimes". You think it and therefore youre guilty. Its a bit of a stretch but its almost at that point.
But I dont really see the correlation with what that poster is saying. Talking to your grandson, or to people on the internets, if you dont have sexual intent, then I dont see how that is possible..
i'll explain how. its all about how the words are defined (their meaning) in legalese
this ruling (an expansion of this laws definition) makes the crime of internet luring
very vague, or more easily & widely applicable. interpretation of what constitutes 'luring' is now very wide, and that interpretation is at the investigators (cops) disscretion! they'll be deciding if your speech is 'innapropriate'
thus making it Criminal. even if you never tried to meet the 'minor'
and yes i guess this would put you on a pedophile list? like the kid at the beginning of this thread.
and like you said earlier sirex: don't matter if he had no intent, he still possesed it.. same thing here i guess? we deem your convo on abortion or warfare or etc to be innapropiate to a child (thats 15 or upto 18even? i guess), so we're charging you with luring! some will of course be 'NO chance', but eh: 2 girls sending bra shots to eachother -felony child pornography charges. 1 dump truck doing 90 in a 40 is 'racing/ stunting' heres your $10K ticket. right?
we have minors on forums (here, all over), we could now as of TODAY be conducting ourselves 'innapropriately' at a criminally chargable level? without even knowing it
I know, I know im just too paranoid, cause im sure not engaging in chat with minors that i know of
