Summary This series raised questions about the relationship between law enforcement and the NBC Dateline show "To Catch a Predator." The investigation revealed that police may sacrifice justice, and their role as independent investigators, in the interest of taping the prime-time show. This situation raises concerns about entrapment, tainted evidence, faulty warrants, and questionable arrest reports.
