1. Justice was done. I want to see Larry get off as well.
No pun intended.

We need to keep this guy in the news. He represents rethug family values, to a "T."

2. I wonder if he's now going to re-appeal his conviction?
:shrug:
I still say he's deeply cloeted though.

4. "the police officer initiated the foot-tapping"
Could this also be the case in the arrest of the 41 others at that restroom?

11. There were two officers involved in this entrapment operation, if I'm not mistaken
They took turns. They also placed sexy internet ads to lure in customers.

5. Craig plead guilty. He could have fought it but didn't.
He had hoped it would go away, but it didn't.

7. No one is found "innocent" in the criminal justice system
They are found guilty or not guilty, or not guilty by reason of insanity, or guilty but mentally ill, but not "innocent." People are presumed innocent until proven guilty, but are not found innocent. Sorry, but it's a pet peeve of mine. That is all.

13. The "boys" in the Duke rape case...
were found innocent, albeit not by a jury. I guess you could say they were DECLARED innocent.

15. They were presumed innocent
and never tried. Had they been tried they would have been found "not guilty."

8. The guilty plea hurt Craigs chances of being "found innocent".

12. Except there was a major difference.
This guy pleaded not guilty and demanded a trial.

16. Larry, it's safe for you to go back on the prowl now!

Your cover might be blown, but with this news, you might be too!
