Creep vs. Predator

The guys busted on "To Catch a Predator" are obviously super creepy. But the head of the group that chases these guys (photo) is a weirdo too.

In a recent interview, he admitted that he spends "seven days a week, mostly from a laptop in his bedroom" pretending to be an underage girl in chat rooms. Yeah, uh, thanks so much for defending us against creepy guys...grown man who's not a cop yet spends two-thirds of his life pretending to be a 13-year-old girl named Tiffany who's really into horses, Hannah Montana, and anal. That's totally normal. (Note: He's also got that weird thin-beard thing going on.)

Another one of these creeps is Pete Townsend from The Who. He was busted with child porn on his computer and said it was there because he was doing "research" in order to give it to the police.

Yeah, right, research...Is that what we're calling it nowadays, Pete? I bet you've been doing a lot of "research"....yup, quite a thesis you've been growing there. It's really gonna make a big splash, eh?

I'm not buying Pete as "The Profiler." Anyone who knows The Who well knows this guy has some pins in the wrong alley. After all, this is the same guy who wrote, "I'm a boy, I'm a boy, but my ma won't admit it." And don't even get me started on that whole Ivor the Engine Driver thing from "A Quick One."

The "it was just research" excuse is a funny one. Can any weirdo use this excuse? Maybe like this: "I like to 'research' Asian midget cheerleader gangbang porn. It's terrible stuff...but someone out there has got to stop all this senseless violence against Asian midget cheerleaders. I'm a real vigilante...The Equalizer of the Asian midget cheerleader world."
