    I can't believe this is happening.

    Then you’d be after him with the emoluments clause. Although when the Obama people set the thing up, they probably wouldn’t have wanted to throw him the business.

    True. Although he’s been plenty emolument all without adding this to the equation.

    Personally, I'd like to see ICE disbanded and charges brought against those who had no trouble following increasingly cruel orders and, without an apparent shred of humanity, allowed people to die in their charge.

    The Forbes writer used rouse instead of ruse. It annoys me when people paid to write make these errors, and makes me wonder how accurate their reporting is.

    I'd agree that it's absolutely insane. And then some. Rob

    Since the "university" site is down, I can't tell exactly how it was set up, can you?
    If it didn't list classes, schedules and locations, how would one not think it was a diploma mill (fake school).

    And something else to remember, law enforcement, doesn't have to tell you the truth.
    There have been lots of stings over the years, where LEO's have done things such as :
    1. You have won a prize.
    2. Your invited to a party, friends, food, music by spoc.
    etc.

    At the end of the day if the only reason someone broke the law is because law enforcement tricked them into breaking a law they would not otherwise have broken then law enforcement is the problem, not the solution.

    well, but—those tactics have been used in my city, to round up badnicks with warrants. They had already committed the crimes, the “you have won a prize” ruse was to locate them.

    We do have occasional discussions on Nextdoor about bait cars put out for car thieves, but
    I don’t know how prevalent is this practice of the cops. I don’t think is IS prevalent.
