So if I understand it is perfectly fine to con them out of money because they are stupid enough to believe the nonsense but becomes criminal if they are really dumb and take off their clothes because a bald man told them to.

Surely no GENUINE psychic would stoop so low.
 
2012-06-21 01:24:24 AM  
Not going to hate on the guy. If you had the power to make women take their clothes off, wouldn't you exercise it?

I mean, more than usual.

Meh, too bad the courts are now involved. To me it looks like idiots met each other and some got hurt feelings when others pointed out their gullibility. Dumbass tag on vacation?

There is always going to be an industry for cons to legally trick idiots (the lottery for example). The women falling for his trick is seem to be just slightly stupider than the usual customers he likely gets. The psychic's case might just consist of him claiming a precedent of his career of scams being legal, than extrapolate that into him really needing the customers naked to perform at his best, and shouting on about religious freedom or the free market or some such shenanigans.

/also: pics or it didn't happen.

Anyone notice the story on the right sidebar?

i4.mirror.co.uk

How can the reporter mistake a sex toy for fungus?

How this story hasn't been submitted with a green-worthy headline is beyond me.

Unless there is some crazy state law where he lives that says that a psychic has an actual responsibility as a medical provider or legal counsel or some such thing, I fail to see how this wasn't laughed out of court already.

No reasonable person would act in reliance on this man's advice, and that's the issue.

It's not for lack of trying.

Can someone explain to me how when you ask someone to strip naked and they do, you caused them "to engage in sexual activity without consent"? Put me on that jury and he's not guilty.

He's an exploitative jackass, but that's something we deal with in everyday society. For all you know, he was talking to invisible people and seeing naked women helped in that process. If you think this is a con, then why not every aspect of religion?

once upon a time there was a fortune teller who acted as bait for a chain of low-priced brothels.

"Yes, I see a future on your back, poor girl."

this

A good opportunity for the court to have fun with the whole concept in a very public forum.

Also the Defense could argue that being naked did help. How can anyone prove otherwise?

While it wasn't exactly the best headline or source (kotaku), it was up a few days ago.

While I hate to see anyone taken by the charlatans and purveyors of snake oil which flood this world, I see nothing illegal. He made a nonsense story which she willingly believed; he has no authority over her, and she is not in distress. My initial thought is something happened to anger her, and now she is heading to the police with this story. However, if her story is accurate, I do truly feel sorry for her because this situation cannot be emotionally easy.
 
2012-06-21 02:16:19 AM  
Just because tricking the stupid is mean shouldn't make it automatically illegal. If I met these women in public and told them "the spirits say you should fark me to prevent armageddon, let's go to my place", we're good. Did /you/ see an armageddon?

If it's legal to tell someone eating a bit of some bread made of dead guy will keep his dad from kicking the shiat out of them this should be legal too.

/ actually, reviewing the evidence, the perp lacked a fanciful hat. Obviously, this is the real crime here

I see no crime by stupidity on the women's part. They are adults, It's no different that I guy asking a woman if the knows the difference between a blow job and a ham sandwich and ends up getting a blow job out of it. I'm sure the woman feels that she was raped when she orders and ham sandwich and gets something that doesn't look anything like the one she had yesterday. Hell, all I hear all the time is that women are smarter than men. You go girl!

"Sexual fraudster"? Aren't most men at one time or another?
His mistake was mixing money and dead people into the deal.

This. Guy is a creep, but just being a creep isn't enough to be charged with a crime.
The only exception I would make is if the woman is actually cognitively disabled. I mean, obviously if she bought that story she's not the brightest star in the sky, but if she's just 'stupid' and he talked her out of her money, there's no case for fraud -it's her own fault. If she's actually handicapped in some way, then yeah, that should be illegal.

Man, I'd love to have a psychic as one of my employees.

Then I could fire them, sending them a letter that starts with "as, no doubt, you have foreseen ..."

But at their sessions she claimed Lang told her he was the "reincarnation of Jesus Christ".

People have been falling for this one for almost 2000 years.
