"To Catch a Predator", All the Characters in a nutshell
7 July 2008 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

The "Predator"- A helpless child of the past, who never could interrelate to people, and did not take significant strides through adolescence. Now in the prime of his manhood, he is trying to master adolescence when the world around him tells him he is too late.

The Watchdog Group "Perverted Justice"- Helpless children of the past, who don't understand what a real day of hard work is really like and "want their cake and also eat it." They want to be helpless children, but also police officers. Society does not permit people to do this except possibly places like Bellvue. So Dateline NBC seeing a ratings smash decides to use "Perverted Justice" as their pawns to knock the enemy pawns, the "predators" off the board, to allow the knights (police and state superior courts) maneuverability to checkmate the queens, (the real men who only are interested in kids). They try to scam the viewer into believing that stupid adult children who can't do anything constructive and are feebly trying to break out of their shell are dangerous pedophiles.

The police who arrest the adult children oh "Predators" have already mastered the horny adolescent stage, have survived the military & have structured themselves to take discipline from commanding officers who pay their salary with taxpayer money. The stupid adult children oh "predators" have only understood structure from mommy and the public school system who manipulate mommy into authoritarian parenting such as send warning notices to mommy for her little angel not passing mid-term exams with important questions like, "In Rowling's "Lord of the Flies" was it Ralph or Piggy that was running in the buff trying to escape from the savage boys, and why was Simon so mean to pummel Piggy for not helping him and the other boys gather sustenance?" "In Salinger's "Catcher in the Rye" why did the hooker cut Holden Caufield some slack and only take a stipend of his balance for services rendered? and why was Holden paranoid that the male teacher kissing him maybe gay?"
