Chris Hansen starting a Kickstarter to bring back Catch A Predator

The Kickstarter begins today but all I can find Are articles about the campaign. I will gladly donate cause that was some damn entertaining TV.

I'm curious as to what the rewards are gonna be

Why is Kickstarter even necessary? This should be on TV every week. Not sure what ABC is even thinking by not bringing this back.

Re: Chris Hansen starting a Kickstarter to bring back Catch A Predator

In all honesty while I found the show very watchable, it always seemed super sleazy and unethical. I know these dudes are looking for underage sex, and that's wrong, but the tactics used by the group that bates them also seemed predatory. He probably needs kickstarter because NBC got tired of the sleaze. Didn't a dude kill himself?

Did any of the cases against the accused hold up in court? I thought I had heard that most of them were thrown out.

That's the best part....if these guys weren't sleazy in the first place there wouldn't be any issues. They go out looking to commit a crime. Fuck them if they're caught using sleazy methods. I have no problem how these fuckers are outed.

I would donate but I just spent all my spare cash on condoms and Mike's Hard Lemonade. I got a hot date tonight!

12 investigations led to the uncovering of about 300 predators, including trusted professionals from teachers to clergy to military men. Over 80% pleaded guilty or no contest and received punishment up to 24 years in prison.

Re: Chris Hansen starting a Kickstarter to bring back Catch A Predator

What if, Hansen is like a Dexter, he's really a child predator too, and is using this for his own gain to eliminate the competition? What if......

Dexter was a good guy and he did eliminate his competition because they were evil and whoever else the law couldn't convict. Nothing beyond that.

Lame rewards. Where's the $2k "Date the Decoy" and the $5k "fuck the decoy" rewards?
