One thing I find interesting is that apparently Foley was scrupulous enough to wait for these guys to hit age 18 before actually approaching them to do anything.
As I said before,
wait til you hear the squeals when it is determined that he broke NO laws. Unless they "Scooter" him
So your saying he did no wrong?
I don't recall... what is your position on homosexuality? Not that I want to condemn Foley for it. I just want to know if your consistent across the board on this or just (gulp) cherry picking?
Is that what he said?
Look again. Maybe put your glasses on first.
(NT) Hmm, you think DM can speak for himself?
I just asked if that's what he said. Do you have a problem with that?
I'm sure he can ...
... others are just helping you out so you can move on. What does anyone's position on homosexuality have to do with this? Technically he probably didn't do anything illegal, and that is likely more do to those that stand up for the rights of criminals over innocent children. Even if he had sex with one of the current pages, it seems that wouldn't be a crime in DC. Go figure.
More to the point...
Broke no laws does NOT equal did no wrong.
You gotta love how the jewel of the country has some of the highest crime rates and where flirting with an underaged page is OK if they are at least 16. As I have said repeatedly... I have yet to see proof of a broken law, yet ethically was he as innocent?
Your right. Go figure.
Again... I have seen nothing...
to indicate he actually made advances to anyone under 18. The e-mails were described as weird and overly friendly. That is not against the law. I am not sure I would call it flirting.
As to his ethics... he DID resign, didn't he? You have to give him that because some others didn't even reach that level, even if they did worse than he did.
In most of the country ...
... age of consent is 16. It appears now that some states -- like Fla -- are trying to tighten that up by making that consent age higher for relations with adults over a certain age. It's all so arbitrary. Is sex between someone that has just turned 25 with someone who is not yet 18 really "worse" than someone who is about to turn 25 having sex with someone who just turned 16? And there are reports tonight that Foley may have actually propositioned a page for sex electronically -- if the reporting is accurate, the electronic proposition could put him in jail, but if he just asked in person, it would have been OK!?!?
I don't think any of it is right. The only thing that really makes sense is to agree on ONE age of majority for EVERYTHING. You can drink, smoke, have sex with whomever you want when you're an adult, and you can't when you're a minor. And no sex for minors
Grim CAN'T STAND IT! He's got a gotcha, and it's
threatening to wriggle right out from under him.
as long as its there choice
