And what exactly is the problem with that?

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen them, but Dateline periodically works with police to do sex stings, filming people coming to houses where they think they will be having sex with underage boys or girls (when I’ve seen it, the targets were going to meet 13-year-old boys). They also include interviews with the people who work online pretending to be these boys and girls. Later, they run the stories including coming out to tell the filmed what is going on.

Last year, one man filmed doing this pulled a gun and shot himself when police tried to serve him with an arrest warrant.

A prosecutor killed himself as police tried to serve him with an arrest warrant alleging he solicited sex with a minor, authorities said.

Louis “Bill” Conradt Jr., 56, chief felony assistant district attorney for nearby Rockwall County and former district attorney in Kaufman County, died Sunday.

. . .

Police in the town of Murphy, in nearby Collin County, said Conradt solicited sex from a decoy posing online as a 13-year-old, said Murphy Police Sgt. Snow Robertson.

I trust I don’t need to point out the sad irony of a felony assistant DA soliciting sex with a 13-year-old. The extra stupid in this ordeal is the sister of this cretin is now suing NBC news for millions.
