“Hard Candy” great movie of a 14yo crazy girl (17 at the time of filming) who engages in a bit of castration on a 32yo pedophile who has a dark secret.

No fhakk, it’s only entrapment if the undercover operative initiates/suggests the actual offence (not the casual contact).

So it was a copper who was 14 year old ‘Roxanne’

Isn’t that entrapment? (not that there’s anything wrong with that in this case…)

Sounds like this former teacher has some issues

I can’t comment either but I seem unable to stop so I thought I’d use it to my advantage and bump down an attempt at seeking attention in the recent comments section.
No don’t look!

Sadly, I really can’t comment on this case….

Nothing to do with me, but this is quite amazingly close.

You reckon they’ll be around after 5?

Deadmandrinking 5:05 pm 22 Jan 08

Anyone here work with him?

Mr Evil 4:43 pm 22 Jan 08

And he was caught out by Steve Waugh! 🙂

Hah farout, its not a NZer who came up with the line ‘cheap wine and a three legged goat’, an iconic Australian Cold Chisel verse…

Mr Evil 2:28 pm 22 Jan 08

I’d be more interested to hear what Tom Cruise thinks, after all he is God.

Ari 2:27 pm 22 Jan 08

Doesn’t it say something about old goats laying down with lambs? A clear reference to NZ.

farout 2:18 pm 22 Jan 08

I didn’t think it mentions New Zealanders specifically.

Frank Fearless 2:13 pm 22 Jan 08

Its pretty sad, I wonder what the Book of Mormon has to say about all of this??

farout 2:04 pm 22 Jan 08

Naaah, I’m happy in my current Detective job.

From the Telecommunications Act 1997 – Section 7 (the one relevant to grooming via interweb, people):

“carriage service” means a service for carrying communications by means of guided and/or unguided electromagnetic energy.

Also, I suggest farout never become a judge.

farout 1:42 pm 22 Jan 08

The plot thickens…
So it appears we have a 14 year old Kiwi who is either:
(a) an employee of the NRS provider; or

(b) an emergency call person; or

(c) an employee of an emergency service organisation; or

(d) an APS employee in the Attorney-General’s Department acting as a National Security Hotline call taker.
