    is often what defines a crime, not whether it's successful or not.

    Isn't the essence of entrapment the provision of an intent that didn't already exist?

    Personally, I'd rather the FBI guide the execution of that prior intent rather than the guy deciding 'fuck it, I can't find any explosives' and buying an AK-47 knockoff at a gun show.

      Because I am always fantasizing about some right wing wacko's being caught with their pants down or some not too critical accident happening that renders them unable to run for office :)
      Come to think about it I often find myself fantasizing when a certain type of woman bends over and...... Never mind..
      Anyways the intent is there but I come to my senses in the end.
      Married 33 years without a single "inappropriate fantasy" ever becoming a reality. :)

      peace
