Under most circumstances their tactics are permitted because they fall under the auspices of trying to do their job.
However, there are circumstances where the police go too far in the pursuit of trying to catch what they believe are sex offenders.
The bottom line is that if you are going into a chat room to be involved in any type of illegal activity, you are basically playing “Russian Roulette” with your rights and freedom.
Law enforcement knows that many individuals who prey on those under 18 years of age are going into these chat rooms.
Dance clubs and dive bars may have worked in the '90s, but now, even if you’re out, your phone is a much easier way to find someone to "watch Netflix and chill" with (especially someone you won’t regret tomorrow).
This is a fairly easy question to answer…of course the answer is yes.
Most people are caught through government sting operations, where an undercover law enforcement poses as a minor and catches the perpetrator committing a sex crime through the use of chat rooms.
The parents then alert law enforcement, who traces the offenders IP address and later shows up at their home armed with a search warrant and seizes all of their computers, phones etc.
Chat rooms are really like shooting fish in a barrel for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.
If the person they are talking to is not predisposed to commit a sex offense and it is the police who initiate everything and actually create a crime where none would normally have existed, then this is a scenario where the entrapment defense can be used quite effectively.
A good example of creating a crime on the Internet where none would have existed is when the police tell a person on Craig’s List that if they bring ecstasy to meet with a woman they the guy will get lucky.
