California RSOL is grateful that the media have begun an investigation regarding the use of military personnel in sting operations. These types of operations are a waste of taxpayers money as well as violate the U.S. Constitution.

I always like how they use “To Catch a Predator” television show as the example of stings. The self righteous masters of the internet stings fail to recognize the existence of Karma and eventually Karma will bite their butts! Just ask the host of the show, Chris Hansen,51, who was caught cheating on his wife with a 30 yr old reporterette. That was the last we saw of that hypocrite and similar things will surface about the over zealous police and prosecutors who continue to run unconstitutional internet stings. Sic ’em Karma!

Not surprising this is happening in Florida. Breaking the law seems to be a regular and largely accepted practice by police agencies there. After reading many articles on this and other sites I think the courts in Florida are by and large just as corrupt as the police are in that state.

If there was a way that rising sea levels could only inundate Florida and nowhere else, I’d take a hairdryer to Antarctica and help the process!!!
