Wilson may be on the lam:

From The New York Times:
 Cody Wilson, a leading proponent of 3-D printed guns, has been arrested in Taiwan after being charged in Texas with sexually assaulting a 16-year old girl there, Taiwanese officials said on Friday.
Police in the Wanhua district of Taipei arrested Mr. Wilson and delivered him to the National Immigration Agency, according to officials in the city.


  1. The description of the alleged crime would mean the perpetrator committed statutory rape at most because of the age of the accuser, assuming the sex-for-money trade was voluntary, but not an assault.

    1. Dude if you are getting in the govt's face on a subject they are hot on, you have to be squeaky clean.

  2. What a damn fool. Libertarians simply do not wrap their heads around the nature of the game being played. This is not debate club.

  3. What a sweet little naive lass. Trolling for johns on SugarDaddyMeet. I bet dollars to donuts she's done it more than he has.

  4. BTW, she'd be legal in half of the other states. (assuming she's 16)

  5. If she's under 18, and creates a profile saying she's 18 or over, and never communicates her real age, she might be guilty of rape by fraud.

    1. Except that in practice the man is guilty of statutory rape no matter what she does, what lies she tells him, fake IDs, doesn't matter. There are men in prison when there was no dispute they were tricked. Men are considered to have the responsibility of accurately determining a girl/woman's age.

    I hear the click-clack of your feet on the stairs
    I know you're no scare-eyed honey.
    There'll be a feast if you just come upstairs
    But it's no hanging matter
    It's no capital crime
    I can see that you're fifteen years old
    No I don't want your I.D.

  7. I think the government has him by the short hairs on this one. Hell, they might've orchestrated the whole thing from start, finish.
    And no, there's no beating a statutory rape charge if you did the deed. My Crim Procedure professor in law school drummed two rules of rape into our heads: If it's a statutory rape charge, you deny deny deny...that the act ever occurred. And if it's a forceful rape charge, you deny deny deny...that consent was ever withheld. Thankfully, I haven't had to resort to these helpful rules-to-live-by.

  8. Taiwan age of consent is 16. Shouldn’t they tell the US, “Not a crime here. Go pound sand.”? But this isn’t about protecting young women, it’s about government control.
