MIAMI, FL (AHN) - Shaquille O'Neal has joined a Department of Justice task force that tracks down sexual predators who target children on the Internet.
Shaq was recently sworn in as a U.S. deputy marshal and, on the Saturday afternoon before the Miami-Washington playoff series, O'Neal spent six hours with Miami Beach police investigators helping with cases.
Miami Beach Police Chief Don De Lucca says O'Neal is becoming familiar with the techniques and software the officers use to track down the predators. O'Neal spends countless hours on his home computer, logging into the police network and learning the ropes.

In a game of internet skill I bet a 13 year old could kick his butt.
He'll be able to see over firewalls and stuff.
You misunderstand. He is the interrogator.
And of course we know all professional athletes are paragons of virtue, right?
Don't underestimate this guy. He has a great Dad.
That's what I was thinking - can you imagine him walking in the room and telling the suspect, "Either you talk, or I put this size 21 EEE shoe up your ass..."
Most Overated Ever
I am one of the biggest Detroit Piston fans around!! Grew up near Motown and have loved them since the days of Isaiah Thomas. I am true blue loyal to the Wallace boys, the Prince, RIP, Chauncey and the bench.
I normally dislike whoever it is they are currently playing. Much to my chagrin I find myself liking Shaq. It is things like this that make him a stand-up guy in many ways.
That said, I hope the Pistons show them again tonight how a REAL team plays basketball. GO PISTONS!!!!
Can you imagine some perp when "Walker" and a 7 foot tall husky black guy burst into his place and tell him to "assume the position"? I'd pay good money to see that.
Of course not, but they aren't all scumbags either. Shaq is one of the good guys, from everything I've read, and from a what a guy who knows him personally told me, although that was some years back.
My fault for not putting sarcasm flags on that one. I don;t realy follow basketball, so I know Sh*t about Shaq. My apologies.
Why does this remind me of Elvis Presley being a memebr of some drug task force? lol
What would happen would go along the following lines. The two hombres would burst into the trailer-park/meth-lab and tell the perps to assume the position. The perps would just stare, absolutely dumbfounded, at the sight of a star NBA athlete and a quasi-movie star suddenly bursting into their domicile. After a few seconds of pregnant silence the perps would break into crackles of laughter, wondering if this is some weird joke, a new TV 'gotcha' program, or the after effects of some meth mixed with bad pizza.
At which point Norris and Shaq would give them the beating of their lives (and the perps would wonder if it is better to get the heck kicked out of you by a Tang-So-Doo expert, or get a traditional whuppin' by a 7 footer with shoes the size of a 12yr old's arm). .
And yes, I'd pay to see that. Good money infact! LOL.
