Has anyone seen this show on NBC? It is currently on Wednesday nights. It is great to see these sexual deviants get busted. Does anyone have an online protection agency in their PD? /

I watch this show often. With all the arrests made people still fall for this. Just shows that their sick and twisted minds are willing to take the risk. It gives me great pleasure to see these bastards get busted. It's amazing the backgrounds of some of these guys. Any one of them could be our neighbor. For me the sickest one was the guy that was strutting around butt naked when the camera came out. Sick SOB.

I find the show both hilarious and disturbing. The look on their faces when Chris Hansen steps out and they realize they have been caught is priceless. What is so disturbing is not just that people would actually do this, but the sheer amount of pervs that they catch shows how dangerous a place the internet can actually be.

Amen. The scary part is, the sheer number of pervs that are caught. How about those that aren't caught. Very Scary.

Anyone can help out with there investigations. Its threw perverted justice. They are the ones that initially talk to the perps, and make phone calls.

The even more scary part is that these people are regular people. They are Dr.'s, Lawyers, Business men, school teachers, and cant forget the Rabi.
I'm waiting for an eppisode where they catch a few females

Sad part is most of the offenders are found not guilty.

Yes Odin, they need to prepare the perp for what he is bound to receive when he gets to jail.

The craziest one to me is the one where the guy was at the house one day.. and then the next day he was caught "trying" to meet a little boy at the mcdonalds... UNDER THE SAME SCREEN NAME...
i think they need to do a reverse one.. where the decoy is an older male... and the suspect is a CHILD... just to show the parents what their child is doing...and to show the child what they can get themselves into.
you cant blame just the dirty men... you have to show some blame to the 12-14 yr olds that make themselves look 18... but wearing a pound of make up and skimpy clothes with their cleavage hanging out.

Dressing up and making yourself look older is not a crime. Having a 40 year old man want to have sex with a minor is. The offenders know how old they are before they even see a picture. So it has nothing to do with girls looking older.

I am a big fan of the show, I tivo each and every episode so i an watch after work. I get great satisfaction from watching these perves get busted. As someone who hopes to become a cop in a few years (at 19 im not old enough yet) I was really disturbed by the Officer caught in flagler beach, florida. The fact that someone entrusted with protecting the community would do something like that is extremely disturbing and the amount fo weapons he ha din his vehicle was just astonishing.

I too enjoy the show but like the earlier post said, "How many of them actually get prosecuted?" Maybe dateline should start following up on some of these cases to show what a joke a judical system can be at times and get some changes made.

I saw one episode where the Police weren't even there. I do believe Dateline took the evidence to the local PD though.

There early shows didn't have a Police presence. They were contacted by Perverted Justice (?) who coordinates with the local PD's, and Mr. Hanson stated he was suprised early on of the amount of response he got during the investigation (read # of perv's). From the after-show follow up blurbs, I believe they may be shooting a little higher than 75% on pleas/ prosecutions.

I saw them bust a reserve once. Painful. He was generational, and young'ish (23-26). The cat started crying, and let it all out- started blubbering about Saint Michael around his neck, what Dad would think, etc....

Sorry, no tolerance here.

I just clicked on Henry's link and read some of the sick pervs conversations with what they thought were 14 years olds. It is very graphic and they have a really bad sickness and should never be let out on the streets.

I have seen every episode of this show and absolutely love it. The main reason I watch it is because of my daughter, who is 5 years old. I am thankful that Perverted Justice and law enforcement are putting these perverts where they belong. Chris Hansen is doing a great job. I am amazed at the different types of people who soliciting underage children on the internet. I have seen military guys, teachers, politicians getting busted. Now a lady named Patricia Conradt is suing NBC because her brother committed suicide after getting busted. She obviously has some screws loose thinking the show is for profit. It is about time that people have stepped forward to take on the subject of adults trying to meet kids for sex. The show is not for profit, but it is there to get the word out into the different communities about the real dangers of adults and children. The right thing for her to do is withdraw the lawsuit or the judge can just throw it out. Seems to me she is the one looking for a profit. Kudos to Perverted Justice and law enforcement.

As for the women who is suing, her brother did the right thing.

The perverted justice site recommends setting up a screen name on Yahoo and entering a chat room and just wait and see what happens. I did it. It is unbelievable the amount of IM's that start coming almost immediately. Most from India! I start a conversation with these a--holes and then terminate it almost immediately. Only had one that said "goodbye" when I answered 14 f to his asl question. The rest are bonafide pervs. There is one in my state that I kept the conversation going with this past Friday. He was doing this from work. He says that he shouldn't be talking to me. A judge wouldn't think its cool. He hasn't gotten to the real deal yet, but I believe it's coming. The sick part is, he has two daughters, 9 and 5. I'm going to see how far it goes, and if it gets to where I think it might, I will turn it over to the local police and hang this bastard out to dry. Sick SOB's.

I think that they all deserve what they get. Maybe if we get lucky more will commit sucide and save the tax payers some money.

Sometimes I will be watching the show and laugh at some of the excuses given by these perverts because they think we are stupid. There was one guy talking about what he wanted to do and ended up driving to the house. Now after being caught he wanted to be a father figure to the little girl. Someone needs to slap the shit out of him for being stupid. Perverted Justice and NBC are doing a great job. NBC is the only television station that hits on this touchy subject. I like the fact that they are changing the show a little bit by changing scenery. I just watched the episodes at the beach. Thank you to Perverted Justice, NBC, and those of you making a difference by getting the word out on this very important issue.

I love the show. I would like to see them here in Atlanta. That would be a show !! We have Chicken-Hawks and Rapes every where. We do not have an Internet unit. We need one. Hell, we even have Mark Carr down here.

I work in a small community and would like to try and set something like this up to see how well it would do. In Montgomery County Tx we have alot of registered sex offenders but could alway use more on the books.
