Storyline

To Catch a Predator is an American reality television series that features hidden camera investigations by the television news magazine program Dateline NBC. It was devoted to impersonating underage people (generally ages 12 - 15) and detaining male adults who contacted them over the Internet for sexual liaisons. People were lured to meet with a decoy under the pretense of sexual contact and then confronted. Show host Chris Hansen clarified in an interview with NPR News that these subjects should be labeled as potential sexual predators, and not pedophiles. "Pedophiles have a very specific definition, people who are interested in prepubescent sex," he stated. Written by NBC

Chris back at it again.
4 April 2019 | by SnoggyTheBearSee all my reviews

Must watch, the way Chris says "Take a seat" it boggles me. You gain this sense of euphoria whenever the cops come and arrest him. Not just that but you get to see when they go to the station. Good for everyone.
