In case you haven't noticed, the law is technical. Whether you or I or anyone agrees with the law or the person's behavior, or whether your sole purpose in this thread is to drum up some hyperbolic commentary from suburban moms and church ladies, is irrelevant to the outcome or to the crimes committed, in this case.

In case you also haven't noticed, you neglected to either find out the definition of the words you used, or the law of the State of Indiana. Then, when you were met with the official versions, you retaliated by blaming the people who simply corrected you, of stating that the person's behavior was "OK" (which as far as I can tell, nobody did). Regardless, the law says that his behavior is legal, and this is the true crime forum.

If this is still too difficult for you to comprehend, the Parenting or Politics & Other Controversies forums might yield more of what you are looking for.

A 16 year old girl beat and rob a married 41 year old guy because he was soliciting sex on Facebook? Ehh...I'd be on the side of the girl in this case. Pervert got what was deserved, no problems with it here. Hey maybe he'll learn a lesson...probably not but one can always hope!

I do find it quite disturbing that some people support 40+ year old men wanting sex from a teenage girl. Obviously many grown men may "check out" teenagers and 20-somethings in public, but to actually attempt to hook up with one on Facebook is just plain disgusting. I'd much rather throw his ass in jail for being a pervert than throw the girl's ass in jail for giving him his "just desserts".

This is funny. Both need to be charged for their separate crimes. However, this is great as far as karma goes. Truly he got what his hand called for.

I checked out the IndyStar news and the reporter Kristine Guerra replied in the comments section why the man's name wasn't published. It seems to me if there is a police report there would be names.

Kristine Guerra: "Just to clarify, there are no charges yet. IMPD says no one has been arrested or charged. All the information in the story are from the police report. Had he been a teacher accused--and formally charged--with sex misconduct with a minor (or something like that), yes, we would have released his name because there would've already been formal charges against him in public court documents. Hope that helps! Thanks for reading."

Who said they supported it? What part don't you people get? This is the true crime forum. The OP positioned this as a crime, but under Indiana state law, it is not a crime. That doesn't make it socially acceptable, it simply makes it not a crime. The OP was corrected by several people who bothered to research the letter of the law, rather than to simply spout off as if this was the Politics & Other Controversies, Religion, Parenting, or other general forums not related to "true crime".

Also, stating that the law says that it's not a crime, doesn't automatically place anyone in the camp of thinking it's OK, and anyone with an ounce of critical thinking skills understands the logical fallacy that this presents. I still have not seen anyone who actually attempted to justify the action, and nobody has been able to point to a post wherein someone suggested that this was socially acceptable.

Ok then technically assault is a true crime if you want to go about it that way.
Or do they have more crazy laws there that you are allowed to carry out vigilante justice based on personal morals?

Honestly it's no wonder this stuff goes on. If everyone would just stick to shaming the man by calling him a pedophile instead of harping on how legal his actions were, we'd have a lot less of this crap. Society has to rise up collectively and put these predators in their place. There's no room for excuses, explanations, and moral relativism here. That coddling does no good for anyone.
