Another news organization decides it’s okay to play cop

Fox 12 of Oregon decided to play cop, judge, and jury by posing as 13 year old girls in a sex chat room. WHILE catching a twenty-year old that wanted to be beaten by the “girls”, this smells of more news organizations crossing over the fine line of investigative reporting and law enforcement.

domCollapse

domCollapse:

domCollapse allows you to collapse and expand parts of page by activating other parts of a page.

To define a element that expands or collapses others add the class trigger to it as an attribute. This will automatically collapse the next following element in the document tree and add the functionality to alternately collapse and expand it.
