Hansen Vs Predators
15 February 2017 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

Chris Hansen ? A modern day folk hero in my opinion . TO CATCH A PREDATOR must have been the most life affirming thing in the history of television . A man turns up expecting to have sex with a child only to find that their next sexual encounter will be in the shower block of the state pen . Be very careful what you wish for . Worse than going to jail is being immortalised by Chris Hansen's witty quips which makes Kerr Avon from BLAKES 7 seem dim-witted in comparison . After TCAP got in to legal difficulties which saw the TV station settle a case out of court the show was cancelled and after intermittent rumours over the years Hansen has returned to the sting operation . Get the popcorn ready because justice has never been entertaining

Except for one slight problem - the world has moved on and other people have taken up the cause , all of which makes Chris Hansen look tame in comparison . Anyone reading this heard of Shane Brannigan ? He's a Briton who uses the Hansen sting technique but while Hansen is merely brilliant Brannigan is brutal and brilliant . You need cheering up ? Then go on youtube and type in "Shane Brannigan nonce hunter" and you'll get the playlists . A particular favourite of mine is the Andy Slater sting where Brannigan confronts Slater in the predator's workvan . Brannigan tells him in no uncertain terms via the F and C words what will happen . Despite the countless number of swear words used by Brannigan his etiquette is British royal family compared to his decoy who is phoned up and asked "You need to talk to this f*cker and you tell him what you think of him . Go on girl"

Phone is handed to predator

"Andy ? Andy ?"

"Yes ?"

"Oh you dirty little...."

I don't think I need to tell you what a woman who has been posing as a 14 year old child and has had to endure naked photos and the most disgusting sexually charged conversations with a 52 year old man over the course of weeks might have to say to a paedo but if there's a swear word in the English language then Slater was called it before the police turned up to arrest him . There's other Brit paedo hunters such as Internet Interceptors , The Hunted One and probably my favourite Guardians Of The North , a bunch of really scary blokes from the mean streets of Sunderland . There's similar groups all around the world posting stuff on youtube , perhaps most famous are The Surrey Creep Catchers from Canada

Chris Hansen started a revolution but now he's been left behind . Thank you for everything Chris but you're yesterday's man
