so Mr I will turn you into a prostitute (whose blog seems to have disappeared) got me thinking:
I was watching a documentary on hbo this weekend about the cannibal cop. for those that don't know he was a cop that would go on fetish websites and talk about cannibalizing women. well he wound up getting prosecuted for it. the doc is interesting not so much because of his specific story but because it brings up complicated issues of when does thought become action, when is a "crime" really committed, when does public safety out weigh personal rights, what is thought crime?
