Interesting article on sting operations, like the one that stung George Michael in a Beverly Hills bathroom in the 1980’s. I think it is scientifically referred to as EN/TRAP/MENT. Charges were dropped against a man who was arrested for LEWD/CONDUCT.

“The presence and tactics of the decoy officers actually caused the crimes to occur,” Dhanidina ruled.

LA Times artle also stated “Dhanidina said Long Beach’s vice tactics are discriminatory because the squad uses only male officers as undercover decoys in lewd conduct stings.”
