    I love this documentary series.

    For those who don't know what it is, to sum it up.
    It's basically the police force luring paedophiles into traps they set. They pretend to be a young child, IM the predator, tell them where to meet them. Predator shows up, hilarity ensues. Police take him down and arrest him.

    It's funny how they do it. They walk into a house and the expression on their face is priceless. It's funnier when they try to escape and they get tackled to the ground.

    Serves them right, bunch of sickos. Anyone else watch this or something similar?

    It's on NBC I think. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I sickens me that there are people like this. Just so wrong. We should lock them up for life for scarring a child like that. No child should go through such trauma.

    It did. NBC stopped producing it because of its already shady and nigh-illegal and entrapment practices landed them in some legal hot water.

    I like the idea for sure, and think those perverts deserve what they got and then some. However, I'm not sure if it is completely ethical. What's next? Sodomize these people because they planned on doing it to a small boy or whatever? As a civilized society based on the rule of law, we should treat scumbags better than they would treat others.



    Nah, they probably should sodomize those pederasts, now that I think about it :D

    I like the spoofs of it that have been made more than the actual show. Though some of the pedos excuses and lies once they are confronted are pretty entertaining

    I love that show. Among my favorite incidents include the case of the guy who attempted to offer Chris Hansen a pizza in exchange for his freedom.

    yeah, if it does return they can impliment new and exciting ways to capture the criminals. Such as Saw style, lure them into a trap and they have to chop off their own leg to escape. If they survive they can go free, if not...well, sucks to be them ^V^

    It is kind of entertaining but as someone else mentioned very shady itself in terms of entrapment and so forth. From memory the fake underage girls normally have to work extremely hard to get the dudes to come over and really force the situation that may have never ever happened in reality. I'm not defending the dudes at all but honestly a good amount of them would probably have never tried anything bad outside of the trap set for them on the show. Also, on a more technical note, most people on the show are "sexual predators," not pedophiles. There's a difference hence the title "To Catch a Predator."

    One reason they had to end it is one of hte suspect later killed himself a few days later.
