Skip to comments.Katie Couric's Sympathy For The Perverts (my title)
Posted on 11/11/2005 10:02:40 AM PST by subterfuge
Hour 2: Chris Hansen did this excellent expose on Dateline NBC last week. In the piece they posed as young boys on the internet and lured sexual predators to a home. Once the men entered the home they confronted them. Besides the rabbi, there was a doctor, a special education teacher, an army man, a defense contractor, a medical student
the list goes on. Not one of these men, if you saw him on the street would stand out in a crowd. This piece was a scary view into the world of internet predators. What is your major malfunction guys!
If you didn't see this show, here is a synopsis:
Dateline's producers set up in a nice, residential neighborhood and proceeded to lure men to this location and they got it all on film. One guy was instructed to show up to the house under the guise of meeting with a 13 or 14 year old boy, and he was to enter the house NAKED and carrying a 12 pack of beer, which HE DID! They caught the very same guy a day or two later after they told him to go to a McDonald's restaurant!
But here is the part that justifies my title: When perky Katie interviewed the producer of the show her concern was for the PERPS! As near as I can remember them her words were "I get almost sick to my stomach wondering how these men could have gotten themsleves in this situation."
Katie wanted to know if the network were going to turn the men in and that if so "what kind of punishment would they get?"
Maybe there was more that I didn't hear but on the WFLA clip, she showed no concern for the ease with which these men were lured in and that there were so many of them. A normal person would be chilled at that, but alas, the perky one was concerned for the poor men who had put themselves in a terrible situation.
As an aside, no one on the radio show or the TV show (reportedly) mentioned anything regarding the link between homosexualtiy and pedophelia.
Ping for the TodayShowMeister!
Well, considering the fact that she supported child murdress Karla Faye Tucker, why should I be surprised?
There is nothing about these animals that warrants any sympathy IMHO.
But be prepared to have your stomach turned. These guys look just like the guys you know...I guess I can understand a lot of sin-- but I'm just clueless about men like this--what is the deal with men and kids?
You are right. You shouldn't be suprised.
When the guy that walked in the front door, completely naked and carrying the beer, the look on his face was priceless as the cameras were rolling and an entire production crew looking on.
He scrambled to get his clothes on and get the heck out of there (but he never let go of that beer).
Do search on this site and there are plenty of posts concerning adult women molesting young boys. It is not a gender issue, but a society issue.
I believe that technology (computers/Internet) has shone the light on how perverted so many in our society are. Ironically it is the technological innovation that has allowed them such easy access to our children.
This was a truly scary show....amazing how many guys showed up at this house. So important for the parents to have some control over their computers. I would also recommend putting an initial password on the computer before you can even get it running so the kids cannot get onto the computer when you aren't home. Because you won't be home all the time and even if it is in the den or living room you won't always be there to monitor. That way with the startup password the kids won't be able to chat without being in view. It also talked about how guys take photos of their private parts and post them.
These men barely made dateline--dog bites man. I don't think it's something universal. It's men who go for porn, although I'm sure you'll find the occasional woman.
The sexes are not the same.
Pedophelia is not exclusively a male dominated sickness and I'm no expert, but the ease with which these men were lured in was astounding. And it was a steady stream who showed no fear of being caught. When the camera crew caught the naked guy for the second time they asked him why he did it and he said simply that he "didn't know."
From the Hannity last night: only 38 out of 800 perps were convicted. The media talks about punishing these perps, but it apparently happening.
This is what you get when your culture embraces moral relativism for a few decades.
Yet, amazingly, if you flash your breasts, or "streak", you get put on the sexual offender list. Not that I condone these actions of course.
I dunno--I'd sure like to think that it was not.
Conduct your own experiment, it's easy and harmless enough. Next time you're waiting in a public place and watching the folks walk by on the street, at the mall--
Check out the guys checking out the gals. You'll find perfectly normal, average guys checking out girls twelve--thirteen...if you asked them why they do it..."I dunno."
Maybe it's hardwired? Maybe it's just a part of nature to rise above, just to avoid jail.
My reply: Too bad because I DO KNOW why I am kicking your ass right now!
Just for the record, this operation was not about pedophilia. A boy old enough to have reached puberty is bait for homosexuals. These guys they caught were queers, NOT child molesters.
I think there were "straight" (after teen girls) guys on the show, too.
As the father of a 16 yo girl, I know of what you speak. Over the years, when she is with me I've not noticed it so much, but when she is with my wife the "men" don't even try to hide the fact that they are ogling a child.
The thing is, so many men do not realize the prison of lust they are in, imo.
you are so right lust is a prison....everyone whether male or female needs to learn how to take captive their thoughts....the Bible says, "take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ" and get professional help if you can't.
You are correct. A pedophile is a pedophile to me though, fwiw.
A group of citizens lures child rapist to a deserted house, where the pervert is murdered. The crime is easy because the perv makes a point of not letting anyone know where he's going when he's planning on meeting a child.
At the end of the movie the feeling that the group is going to get caught is heightened by the police chief approaching the house used for murder. But the surprise ending is that three judges and the police chief, are running the scam killing the child molesters. And absolutely no one is going to catch them. Ever. The last scene is a perv on the computer setting a time to meet a 9 year old...
Pretty chilling in a couple of ways GOPJ. Nice twist.
I've got to go now, but the saddest thing to me is that Katie and her brethren in the media get away with voicing the sentiments that they do.
Where is the outcry, the outrage by her contemporaries? A mere 20 years ago she would have been justifiably fired. Today, barely a wimper from the MSM, as a small time radio personality and a few FReepers voice there displeasure. Its depressing.
Thank the Good Lord for that! I am not trying to minimize the abhorrent behavior of some of my gender, just a little sensitive to the 'it's always a man at fault' thing. The acts of the molester is that of a coward, cowards are afraid of punishment. If punishment is swift and terrible the coward will consider his own hide and maybe refrain from the act.
As I have said before, the only time repeat should be associated with a sexual predator is when referring to the second jolt they get when they ride 'ole sparky'.
Sounds to me like they're both, pedi-queers. (13 or 14 yr.olds)
I think teeny weenies may be part of the problem!

I heard the audio from the show yesterday on Glen Beck. My jaw dropped when Katie did her poor, pitiful perverts number.
She and the rest of the party of pathetic perverts are just wacko. There is no other way to describe their sympathy for the perverted nut jobs and NONE for their underage victims.
Thanks. Now that you describe it I think I must have seen bits of the show - maybe on Dateline. Were guys literally running down the street to get away from the interviewer?
You might want to take a look at the stats. Based on population, far more men than women molest, and homosexual molestation is much higher as a percentage than the percentage of homosexuals in the general population.
Didn't say that there was more women than men that were molesters, as if that is not common knowledge. Responded, not to you, concerning a statement that said 'what is wrong with you men'. Perhaps you could share you statistics with that poster. It obviously points out that there is, even if only statistically, women molesters.
As far as the homos being the majority of molesters, who cares. All men, women, and homo molesters should be treated the same. Harshly!
I am beginning to wonder if her husband Jay is dead or just hiding from her.
one problem i see with the latest view on sexual preditors is that lately the law seems to lump them all into the same catagory. the man who is foolish enough to trust a false statement of age by a 16 year old girl about her age is cast into the same light as a sicko who rapes little boys and girls over and over again. there must be some kind of common sense way to approach this.
The whole looney left has been saying for years that sex crimes are not really crimes. Is it any wonder that the prevalence of this type of activity has gone through the roof. Now, I'm sure lust for children and teenagers has been going on for a long time, but it was taboo. Now, anything goes as long as it's consensual.
Y'all are funny!
Yes. They were scrambling to hide their faces and put their clothes on and run like the wind.
Absolutely correct. If you get taking a leak on a golf course you can be entered into the same data base as the pervs.
Again with this same damned sick post. You post this in almost every thread dealing with any kind of sex crime. I'm beginning to wonder what the hell is wrong with you.
And again the same objections to the old lex talionis coming from your direction. Lex talionis is not sick. I am at least within an old and venerable tradition, which is more than I could say about you, at least in this instance.
Not sick? The slow cruel death of a man, any man, even the worst of us is incredibly sick. And you make sick jokes about chair rentals and beer concessions? What kind of twisted freak are you that you would find this entertaining?
