Description

WTSP's series investigating sex predator stings exposed how detectives were improperly entrapping men that posed little - or no - threat to society. They challenged authority, exposed wrongdoing, and prompted changes over the course of our two-year-long investigation. Even though NBC ended its run of “To Catch a Predator” stings years ago, similar operations continued in Florida well into 2014, thriving on federal grants and made-for-TV press conferences. Their nine stories showed how detectives had to start leaning on dishonest and unethical tactics to keep up their arrest totals.
