So a cop goes undercover "21 Jump Street" style to bust kids at a high school for selling weed. 22 students are arrested, the majority  of whom are special needs kids. The kid in the story has problems reading social cues & it's really hard for him to make friends so when he transferred to this school & one guy was willing to hang out with him, he likely thought he was making progress.

 

Soon "Deputy Dan" (So named by other students because he was obviously a cop to kids who pick up on social cues) started asking him to by weed for him, sending him 60 texts asking & an unknown amount of times in person. The kid refuses, cop gets mad at him, kid freaks out to the point he starts hurting himself, finally the kid agrees, takes $20 from the cop, & spends 3 weeks trying to figure out how to do it til he buys half a joint off of some homeless guy. Cop gets him to do it again, then when the cop tries a third time, the kid refuses, the cop cuts off all contact, kid gets depressed, then uniformed officers show up at the school to arrest the kid in front of his classmates for teh awesome perp walk.

 

Now his parents had the money to get a good lawyer, & get the kid a not guilty verdict (though he still had 20hrs community service.) the other kids weren't so lucky.

 

 

This is particularly disgusting to me because I know several people who are on the autism spectrum including my father-in-law & I know how hard it is for them to recognize & deal with manipulation.

How is this not entrapment?

 

To my understanding when an LEO entices someone into committing a crime that they were otherwise not predisposed to commit and subsequently arrests them for the act the LEO has entrapped the person.  From the reading of this the LEO preyed on the disability of the young man and goaded him into committing the crime.

 

Cop should lose his badge and the Dept should have to dig deep to pay for the kids continued treatment that stems from this.

Police departments need to stop this poo. This is worse than the ones where they send in some hot 28 year old woman as an undercover high school student to flirt with fat nerds (who have never smoked weed in their lives) and say she'll blow them if they buy her pot.

Agree with everyone here.  That's manipulation and entrapment if there ever was such a thing.  Taking advantage of people with disabilities is pretty low.  Just wondering how this sort of thing get's green lighted.

Everyone of them...except for the Indians.

 

 

Seriously though, Native Americans can defend themselves...mentally handicapped people not so much.
