Online Vigilantes luring potential predators

Sun Times:'Online vigilantes' luring potential predators

DeLuca is among a growing number of civilians across the nation who are conducting online stings to catch potential child predators. Perverted Justice, an organization that's dedicated to outing online predators, expects to double its volunteer corps, to 100, by year's end.

Critics say it borders on vigilantism. Criminal defense attorneys argue that it amounts to entrapment and that the nature of the charges -- rather than the weight of evidence -- forces people to plead guilty to avoid publicity.

Yeah, it's just not fair for private citizens to turn the tables on Internet predators. "You supposed to be prey, not me."
