davynelson: i LOVED to catch a predator
there was never any 'misunderstanding' about what was said online
those assholes were looking to bone a 13 year old...

and i commend the show, even if someone killed himself after being caught.
too bad they all didn't


It was discovered that a lot of that "evidence" they showed on TV was doctored by the project members, and more than a few guys got out of any charges because of it.

Also, I never quite understood why every guy showed up with Wendy's hamburgers.

/Wendy's. Not pedophiles, but #1 with pedophiles.
//Actually, going for teens is not pedophilia. It's ephebophilia. The distinction being that the subjects of interest have gone through puberty.  Pedophiles are turned off by puberty.

machoprogrammer: To Catch a Predator was just awful. How any of those arrests stood up, I have no idea. Entertainment should NEVER be mixed with justice.


I dont know that many of them did, IIRC besides the suicide, part of the reason they canceled the show was that the conviction rate was ridiculously low. They definitely crossed the line into entrapment frequently.

Yeah, except Perverted Justice was often paid more by NBC to get the guys to show up, so their decoy begged the guy to come over. Which is, you know, entrapment, except when it is done to catch "bad guys". And the guy who killed himself didn't even show up... He decided it was wrong and didn't show up, and they farking went to his house with a camera. I am glad NBC got the shiat sued out of them for it

They're going to catch a guy that has a really good lawyer and then they get their ass handed to them.
/Or a cop.
//Or a guy with a knife.
///Seriously guys you really prove nothing and you put yourself in a lot of danger.

One more time: there are no teenage girls who want to hookup with your fat middle aged ass.  Unless you're rich, then they're just in it for the money.  But there are plenty of chubby 30-something women on craigslist with self image issues who will put out for a dinner at the Sizzler.

Hell, I think a Texas DA threw out every case they got out of a local sting because Von Erck & Co. wouldn't divulge unedited transcripts.  And if Texas--who has executed mentally disabled people--will not prosecute your case, then yeah, you don't have one.

dantheman195: My question is why would a 13/14/15 year old girl want to bang some 40/50/60 year old dude?

If you are 40/50/60 old dude on the Internet and you somehow encounter a 13/14/15 year old girl who wants to bang you, would you just assume s/he was a cop or another weirdo pretending to be said 13/14/15?


1)  Daddy issues

2)  Most normal guys, yes.  But, predators are usually far beyond "normal" and have a tendency to look on themselves as still being young and attractive, letting their fantasy rule their everyday lives.  Many tend to view themselves as though they are teenagers and for many believe that makes it perfectly acceptable for them to have relations with teenagers.


CSB:
My cousin was held by some vigilantes trying to do the TCAP thing.  He was lost trying to find a friend's house who happened to live across the street from the place they were doing the sting operation.  He rang the doorbell and when a young girl answered the door, he asked for his friend.  She said, "Yeah.  He's in the kitchen.  Come on in!"  She ran upstairs after pointing him to the kitchen.  He walked to the kitchen where he was met with a video camera and some angry-looking guys who started yelling at him making a big deal about how my cousin was a predator and a pervert, etc., not letting him get a word in edgewise.  My cousin didn't say one word during the whole thing and just told them to call the police if they were so sure he was there for the girl.  Instead, they took him out to the front lawn and pepper-sprayed him while beating him and yelling at him, calling him a pervert.

My cousin's friend saw what was happening and called the police and rushed to help him.  The vigilantes were arrested for hate crimes since my cousin is flamboyantly gay and they assaulted him while calling him a pervert.  He also won a small settlement against them to cover his "medical expenses."

/Vigilantes need to watch themselves and not let bravado blind their eyes to obvious gayness.

I wonder if the daily fail has liability if someone tries this, ends up killed and their kid raped.
God forbid this ever happen, but frankly I can imagine it occurring in this day in age.

This is prime horror movie material. "You went to a house expecting a little girl. You didn't tell anyone where you were going. How long will it be before anyone realizes you're missing?"

Or maybe some kind of BDSM porn.

"A British band of self-styled pedophile hunters has been ambushing men it believes are out to meet young girls, posting video of the confrontations to the Web in a tactic which has yielded arrests - but alarmed police."


Jeebus, Redditors are trying really hard at rehabbing their image after the whole Boston Marathon investigation disaster.
