To Catch a Predator

Last night I found myself getting sucked in to watching NBC's Dateline, because it was the 4th installment of "To Catch a Predator" and the commercials just looked too good to pass on. I couldn't help cracking up most of the time at the types of guys who were on this edition.

To recap, this company called Perverted Justice tracks down predators in Chat rooms and they set it up so that the Predator shows up at this house that has about 8 cameras set up, thinking they are going to meet up with the underage kid they met online. The girl decoy is upstairs and yells out "I'll be right down-- in the meantime help yourself to some cookies" and most likely the guy comes in and starts eating away at the tollhouses. Then walks in Daniel Hansen, Dateline correspondant, and says, "Can I get you some milk with that cookie" and 9 times out of 10, the guy goes "SURE" and just continues to sit there like nothings wrong. Fast forward five minutes of denying every possible thing Daniel Hansen accuses them of, they get up to leave and get attacked by the police force waiting outside the decoys house,and are immediately dragged off to the slammer.


Wow, AOL needs to just end chatrooms all together! The only chatroom I remember is when Erica and I somehow ended up in a Knitting Chatroom when we were 14 yrs old, and asked everyone if they could make us mittens. Yeah, we got blocked.
