You will of course now reference the place in this thread where I stated it
wasn't a "real crime"? FFS, I just said AGAIN that it was a crime in the
very article you quoted. Did I say it was an unreal crime, or a petty crime
or any other type of crime? 

Didn't think so. I just used the word by itself. Crime.

Where did I ever say otherwise?

>> Just as identity theft is NOT THEFT.
>> It is fraud. Another entirely different CRIME.

> Still illegal so why do you and your ilk continue to defend it.

Where have I defended it?
Hmmm? I simply called it what it is. Not what the media WANT it to be.
