FTFA: NBC News also backed off on the controversial-but-popularPredator and itsDateline segments when the subject of one of its investigative pieces -- in which Hansen interrogated sexual predators on the show found online by the watchdog group Perverted-Justice -- committed suicide during a taping.

Damn, I didn't know that. Did he bring a weapon when visiting the "child's" house?
 
2013-08-03 02:00:23 PM
Since he's basically a male Nancy Grace he should pair up with her. The family of the guy who committed suicide should have gone after him until they ran him of the air.  That shiat he was pulling was not journalism and it was wrong.  I don't care if the guy was a pedo.

:::sigh::: I submitted this YESTERDAY with the headline "Why don't you take a seat right over there, gather your personal belongings, and wait for security to escort you out? "

I still think it's a better headline.

He going to team up with fellow out of work journalist  Soledad o'Brien and pitch a show to BET.

"Catch a "black " predator

Five times a week .3 hour show every night.

Are...are there seats in the unemployment line? Because I don't think it's a line if there's seats in it. How do you move up? Do you scoot your chair? Are there wheelchairs? If so, I should get fired because complimentary wheelchairs sounds better than any job I've ever had.

He ought to do a spinoff--a game show where, instead of confronting the pedos in the kitchen, interviewing them, and then releasing them to the cops, the kitchen transforms/morphs into a Price is Right-style studio, where Hansen offers them the chance at redemption/clemency by having them answer trivia questions.

Kind of like that car-repo game show, but with dangerous perverts instead.

ugh-I was watching that live when she was woodenly parroting the Wiki definitions on-air during her 'debate' with a guest, I kept thinking "this is very Broadcast News"

RE: the on-air suicide, this wasn't during the actual 'Predator' sting taping but later when the cops showed up @ the prosecutors' house, Dateline NBC always sent a crew along for those 'follow-ups'

It's important to note that he never showed up at the sting house. The cops busted in a couple of days later.

And you are correct.

This guy is an embarrassment to journalism. Glad to see him given his walking papers. But I'm sure Fox News will scoop him up in a flash. His garbage is right down their alley - exploit any opportunity to make people bereft of critical-thinking skills think the nation is crumbling around them.

not only did it look bad, she was a shiat ton younger than him as I recall.  Not making him a pedo or anything, she was a legal age woman but jeez.  Hard to take the man seriously after that to me.

No.  Hansen chased the man down to his own house, and when he was confronted that was when the guy blew his brains out.  I remember there was a lot of evidence of entrapment, or at least enough to make them settle.

How does that work? I thought the point of these shows was that the prep going over to the decoy's house proved intent, which allowed an arrest to be made.

it was already illegal to sexually chat up an underage minor online.  didn't have to show up for it to be a crime.

Wait.  Unless I remember wrong, he got caught in a Predator sting on TV, but killed himself later at his own home.  Not "during the taping".

Here's the Wikipedia entry on the matter: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/To_Catch_a_Predator#Louis_Conradt_suicid e

According to this, in Texas it's illegal to have an explicit chat online with someone who has identified themselves as underaged. The guy was a DA, too. IIRC the local police chief decided to go over himself and give him a chance to surrender.

"Occupation: District attorney"

He got caught doing what he probably prosecuted others for. I wish more individuals in our government that acted in this fashion would follow suit. We'd all be much better off... When you're in public office, it's expected that the individual should hold themselves to a higher level of integrity.

He knew he was in the wrong, which is why he did what he did. The cameras may have had some impact, but the fact that he was a prosecutor probably had much more bearing on his final action. If he didn't believe it was wrong, why was he in a position that would bring sorrow to others acting the very same way?

You do remember wrong. He never showed up to the house, and in fact stopped communication with the decoy long prior to the sting. Perverted Justice convinced the cops that the chat logs they had were enough to prove intent (in Texas, where this happened, it's illegal to have a sexually explicit chat with a minor) and a SWAT team showed up to serve an arrest warrant, Dateline in tow with cameras rolling. Once the guy knew that Dateline was out there, he blew his own head off. The Wikipedia page linked above is pretty short but thorough enough to show what a clusterfark the whole thing was.

It is a shame that the man thought he had no other way out.   I don't understand how one can be convicted of sex talk with a minor if the person isn't a minor. Heck lets really get them and have one of the ladies dress up as an underage girl and actually have sex with the man. Get him for raping a minor while their at it.
