Public ire in Ohio has been raised over questionable tactics used by Columbus police to ensnare 'perverts' in a series of stings to reduce criminal activity. Firefighters, lawyers, and retired state troopers have been caught with their pants down.
The trap involves posting a talkative topless woman in a park to lure men into a trap. After rubbing the alleged criminals with her leg she asks to see their penis. Once they comply they are arrested by undercover cops who pull up in a van.
All attempts to have charges of 'public indecency' dropped have failed. A recent case is on appeal due to the jury not being told the meaning of 'entrapment'. It is legal for women to sunbathe topless in Columbus, but displaying a penis is not.
