- Do you know who I am? I'm Chris Hanson for Dateline NBC. (Posted on February 12, 2007, 10:31 am Chris Hanson)
- Don't these guys watch Dateline? I'm amazed at the lengths these predators will go to - driving all the way from Klamath Falls, or flying in from Seattle. The thought of these people preying on children sends shivers down my spine.
I'm concerned about the methods used by the Dateline stings, though. It sometimes seems like the online decoys pursue the predators - or at least encourage them to a great deal (according to statements made by some of the men arrested - along the lines of "she kept IMing me" or "I told her we shouldn't, but she contined to email or call me").
This local mission, though, seems above board - and I applaud the efforts of our law enforcement officers in the steps they take to protect our children. (Posted on February 11, 2007, 3:20 pm Wendy Donaldson)
