Hansen and perverts and tasers that sting…

…these are a few of my favorite things!

There are so many things to love about this newest segment of Dateline‘s “To Catch a Predator,” I don’t know where to begin (if you want the money shot, skip to the five-minute mark). First off, this guy is willing to drive almost six hours to hook up with someone he had just started chatting with. Folks, sexual perversion and a complete lack of impulse control are a dangerous mix.

Next, despite the fact that this creep is in the house (and presumably about to seal the deal), he still feels the need to lie about himself to impress the ladies. I don’t know much about police work, but I’m pretty sure they don’t promote to lieutenant after just one year on the force (turns out he was a trainee for about two months then got the boot).

I like the new “Predator” touch – the usual wet bar setup has been replaced by a much more intimate “dueling Barcalounger” motif. The predator’s chair even has a back massage pad!

Now for that aforementioned money shot – hot taser action! This guy had already dug his own grave by telling the decoy that he carried his gun everywhere with him, so the real police were ready for him when he tried to go back to his car. Within seconds he’s tased, and proceeds to run through the house and scream like a sorority girl during a panty raid. The “don’t tase me bro” goof took it with more dignity than this clown.

I suggest you go back and watch that arrest again. I know I just did.

  1. The best part of the entire video is when he breaks into his high pitched girlish squeals as he’s being tased and chased around. Priceless!

  3. I never claimed I didn’t laugh – because I’m not about to lie. But I can laugh at a lot of things that I consider wrong. Hell, I’m pretty sure I snickered even at the “don’t tase me” video.

    Pain is hysterical when it happens to someone else – otherwise America’s Funniest Videos wouldn’t be on it’s 30th season or whatever.

  5. I have to go with Thom on this. The guy should have been arrested, but what did he do that required a taser? He already demonstrated that he was unarmed, he was outnumbered 10 to 1, and he wasn’t making any aggressive moves (not that he was even within striking distance of any of them).

    What is this department’s policy on using a taser to provide entertaining TV?

    (OK, I’ll concede that I laughed when he started wailing… but we did watch Faces of Death in HS, so we’re both pretty desensetized to violence)

  7. Well to be fair, they had already conducted a few sting operations on their own (no TV crews). They were quick on the taser, but you can’t tell me that wasn’t funny. Well you could, but I wouldn’t believe you. No sir, not for one second.

  9. Geez, the police are really lazy aren’t they? They use a TV show to lure the perverts to them, and then they taze him, what? 5 seconds into the arrest attempt? I’ve got no sympathy for these idiot perverts, but these trigger-happy cops scare the bejeezus out of me.
