Oh oh.....

(Reuters) - A Texas man whose plan to sell blueprints for 3-D printed plastic guns spurred national controversy was charged on Wednesday with paying an underaged girl for sex at a hotel, according to court documents.

Hah. Just posted this in the bar too.

They have video of them going into a hotel together! He's obviously guilty!

My first thought? There's absolutely no way I could believe this. There's also absolutely no way I could disbelieve it either.

It's an accusation that, when made like this, doesn't really matter if it's true or false. Especially when made against such an obvious enemy of the state.

Well video is pretty tough to argue against especially when they also have your credit card used to pay for the room.... You can steal the card number but faking the video is a LOT tougher.

This was probably a sting but he still appears to have done it intentionally... and if so he's ****ed.

What is a 17 year old doing on SugarDaddyMeet.com (digital pimp site)in the first place? He is a law student if I recall so I guess we shall see how good he is at law. But I agree if you want to put yourself on Uncle Sam's radar this is a stupid move.

"If you're going to poke the bull make sure you didn't do something really stupid first..."

Yeah, don't poke a calf.

Moreover, when you decide to go against the Deep State ( i.e., the less known and sometimes unseen faction of the multilayered government) you better have a good game plan. For example, you better understand that you are going to be a target 24/7 and the Deep State won't play nice.

Remember how the FBI surveilled MLK and kept an hour by hour account of his activity --- including his sexual activity? Well, that's you, if you decide to go head to head with the government in a big way.

And don't think the Deep State (or even the local DA) won't try and frame its enemies, either. It happens.

Nothing suprises me anymore. Nothing. In a world where Catholic Preists are boning youths left and right is it any wonder that normal men are doing wicked acts?

But I'm not going to judge Cody until I get some more facts, e.g., in there a voice and video recording of what happened in the hotel room. How old did this youth claim to be and what does she look and dress like? Does she look 20 years old?

One thing is for sure: Cody won't be treated by the "law" the same way in which Anthony Weiner was treated....

the video might be the motel's usual video surveillance. a lot of these places that attract prostitution activities make nice with the cops by having video of guests as a company policy. they retain the footage for a very long time and make it available for legal uses. ask any divorce attorney how useful is this video.

he is probably watched to some degree by various authorities, but more likely he is guilty of being stupid. some guys with the balls to challenge the system get blinded by their success and get sloppy, thinking that they can do anything. the best way to win is to know when to quit.

in no case has a girl ever hesitated or took offense when i was concerned about her age and asked for ID. and it sucks to take advantage of underage females or where there is a power situation or damaged person. if a girl this young enters the sex worker profession, she is seriously broken and a man should not contribute to her destruction. this makes him a dirtbag.

It says girl "under the age of 17"... I agree at 17 it's a nothing burger.

How far under and what she said in her profile will play into this. Eh, who am I kidding, they're going to fry him...

But if she said she was say 19 and was 16... What do you do? Check ID first? I guess in today's day and age you need to. Most "high school" students on TV and movies are 20-something but pass for 16-ish when dressed appropriately. It works the other way too... I was 19 or 20 and knew a girl through a friend who was 14 going on 24. She looked and acted the part too... Was dating a 26 yr old at the time... Not sure what to think...

Definitely a dumb move given what he's into. Buy socks by the caseload...

His ego just stabbed a lot of the Second Amendment Supporters in the back.

Laws of Society will exist whether a government enforcement apparatus exists or not.

Anarchists should remember that.

He managed to cross both if he is guilty.
