    Police Stings

    Robin Garrison, an off-duty 42-year-old firefighter, was walking in Berliner Park in Columbus, Ohio, in May when he saw a woman sunbathing topless under a tree.

    He approached her and they started talking and getting comfortable, the woman smiling and resting her foot on his shoulder at one point.

    Eventually, she asked to see Garrison's *****; he unzipped his pants and complied.

    Seconds later, undercover police officers pulled up in a van and arrested Garrison; he was later charged with public indecency, a misdemeanor, based on video footage taken by cops who were targeting men having sex or masturbating in the park. While topless sunbathing is legal in the city's parks, exposing more than that is against the law.

    Garrison was convicted, ordered to stay away from the park, placed on a year's probation and fined $250. Currently, Garrison remains on paid desk duty while the fire department conducts an internal investigation into his behavior.

    In New York City, nearly 300 people, many of whom had no criminal record, have been snared this year through the NYPD's Operation Lucky Bag, in which undercover officers leave a wallet, iPod or cell phone in a subway station and wait to see who picks it up.

    That seems kind of cheap . . .

    That said, sunbathing topless is legal in Columbus, Ohio parks?

    Well, she can't show her cha-cha either. I've just long wondered why we hold female nipples as obscene like we do, but not male's. That's what doesn't make sense to me.

    Re: Police Stings

    The part about the Operation Lucky Bag is what bothers me most. How is it considered criminal activity to pick up a lost cell phone, or wallet? Maybe these people were going to return it the authorities there so they can find the rightful owner. Stupid. Especially in NYC....they should have better things to do there.

    The only thing I can think of is that if they waited for them to not turn it in to the lost and found there. But even then, it's pretty weak and it bothers me as well.

    Usually those stings involve the suspect being present when the decoy leaves the item. The suspect then grabs the item and makes no attempt to advise the "victim". Sometimes the decoy has the item sitting next to them and they are "busy" doing something else and the person grabs the item when they aren't looking. They don't just drop a wallet in a park and then swarm anyone who picks it up. And that IS a big issue in NYC and other tourist destinations so that is why they focus on things like that.

    I think her request to see "it" constitutes entrapment. Good Lord, he's a man.......what's he supposed to do when a topless woman asks that? Say no?

    Yes he is supposed to say "no." If he does that, he doesn't get arrested. He could have easily controlled himself.

    Obviously he shouldn't have whipped it out, but the police officer requesting him to commit an illegal act should constitue entrapment if that's what actually happened.

    That being said, I think I can live with the fact that I now know I can walk through a park in Columbus and it'll be wang free but full of funbags. I guess they needed some way to get people to live in Ohio.
