Catch A Perv

I thought this was fairly interesting. It's a British based site set up by two guys who go into chat rooms posing as 12 year old girls and basically try to trap internet perves. They capture their faces on webcam, copy the chat transcript and put it up on the site for all to see.
The British police are apparently not too impressed and are considering whether they can shut it down.

btw - some of the transcripts are fairly lurid, so avoid them if you are sensitive.

Re: Catch A Perv

I think its a good idea in a sense. It appears to be a big problem on the net bringing more awareness to the issue can only be good in my eyes.
I had a look at their pics not surprised they all looked quite creepy, I skipped the transcripts though... I can only imagine.

Re: Catch A Perv

Yeah, its a hard issue in some respects. These guys are creeps (and don't they look they creeps too - is there a perve gene or something?) but the police are concerned that these kind of sites encourage a vigilante mentality.

I notice a couple of comments from guests saying they recognised one of the guys or they could possibly figure out where they lived etc. That's a bit of a worry.

Do they? Wow, that's taking the whole concept another step further again. I can't imagine them having a show like that here somehow - too many legal and civil liberties hurdles to jump.

Yeah thats why I see it as good not great, it leaves these pervs open to attack, then again its sorta their karma and then on the other hand rights are being violated in a sense.
I can be a fence sitter at times, I do see both sides of this... but still without to much thought to these men as people I can easily say I overall see this as a good thing better they be hurting then some 12yr girl.

I doubt very much we would legally to be able to run a show like that in Australia - entrapment, non-disclosure etc.

But I must admit, it would make fascinating viewing.

Re: Catch A Perv

I read about this yesterday. Apparently, the police are worried that it'll cause the pervs to go 'undergound' and there was also something about the high number of suicides as a consequence of actions such a Catch A Perv.

I've seen that Dateline show a few times. These type of shows are becoming pretty common in the states. Dateline runs other shows in a similar vein with secret cameras trying to entrap people that are involved in different kinds of wrongdoing.

One I saw featured a couple that wanted to adopt a baby and had become involved on an online adoption message board where a women in their area would offer to be a surrogate mother for them. They scam artist they featured would take money from the couples with no intention of giving them the baby in the end. She'd get close to the couples and basically rob them blind. They uncovered her actions on one of the Dateline episodes by following her around in their car and had the couple record their phone conversations where you could see her saying one thing and doing another. (I'm on my way to the hospital - when she'd actually be going to the mall with a friend) It was pretty awful watching the whole thing unravel.

This is the argument that is often used here against the case for us having a local version of "Megan's Law" - where convicted pedophiles are put on a public data base.

I suppose the difference between that and the catchaperve site is that the men caught out there aren't necessarily convicted peds and in some cases, may not actually have committed a criminal offence. It's a complex issue I guess.

It just goes to show that you have absolutely no idea who or what the person you are talking to in a chatroom actually is. Even here, any of us could be...well anything at all couldn't we? But speaking personally I'm not posing as a 12 year old girl or looking for one!

Jesus - I just read one of the transcripts. That's gross. It's absolutely vile and I've got a pretty strong stomach. I wonder how many pervs like that there are out there. I would be seriously worried if I had a young daugther.
