Child Predators: Dateline NBC and Beyond

Dateline NBC has run a series of shows called “To Catch a Predator”. Police officers would chat with unsuspecting men. Police officers would pose as a 13 year old boy or 13 year old boy. Casual chat would turn to serious and perverted discussions of sex. Then, a meeting would be arranged to meet the child for sex. While NBC staged these scenarios, children are harmed everyday by relatives, friends, acquaintances, teaches, religious leaders, coaches, and other preying adults. NBC and the police would be set up at the safe house with hidden cameras and “catch” these predators. It is important to monitor the computer use of children. Predators are not only on the streets but online. You can view some of the predators caught in the investigation on You Tube and other sites on the Internet.
