To Catch a Predator (tv show)

Anyone watch this show? It's amazing how many preditors are out there looking for teens.

Yep, we've seen it, or at least, I think that's the one we have watched. The one that we watch is where they talk to people on the internet and make them believe that they are talking to a 13 year old girl, get them in the house and the host of the show walks out and asked them what they he// they are doing. Then they arrest them when they walk out. I love it. But, it amazes me too that there are so many sick people in the world!! I'm very happy that they have these stings!!

Yes have watched it several times and it's great they are doing the shows and that parents will be more alert on what their kids are doing on the internet. Yes there are alot of sick people out there that want the young ones. Also seen on the tv yesterday that the webcam is a no no. Only use for the webcam is porno and that all parents should NOT have one in the house where the kids can get to it. Dateline sting is doing a great job on catching the sick people. Just think, alot of the sick people look just like an ordinary guy, the guy next store. One guy even brought along his little boy when he went to meet a 13 year old girl. Now thats sick.Hope all parents watch their kids closer and know what they are doing on the internet.

Web cams can be a good source for keeping in contact with friends/family, but definately not for kids unless they are supervised. Porn is an issue with preditators if kids have computers in their bedrooms, not only with cams but especially in chatrooms! Monitor you kids everyone, and it's best to keep the computer in a communal area of the house, and know who they are chatting with online.

I haven't seen it yet, and it is amazing how many dirtbags are out there. When the internet came around, it made the job easier for all the freaks and preditors out there - they jumped for joy...
