Preying on the predator

A couple weeks ago I was having lunch with a fraternity brother of mine. I brought up  a funny episode of To Catch A Predator that I was watching the night before. He responded with, "oh, i love online child predators". Of course I had to ask how anyone could love a child predator. He proceeded to tell me that he actually uses them to his advantage. A couple years ago he didn't have enough money to pay for a trip to Las Vegas, apparently the child predator capital of the U.S. While browsing the internet he came across a group of people that went to online chat rooms, pretended to be helpless underage girls, and got video cameras and all kinds of "gifts" sent to their homes, which I assume were P.O. Boxes or random addresses. Of course my buddy, being the ingenious border line stupid guy that he is decided to take it one step further. He actually spent about two weeks online talking to some pervert convincing him that he was a 14 year old girl who hated her parents that couldn't understand her. My friend decided that they had talked enough and that it was time to meet. He actually got the guy, who lived in Vegas, to send out round trip tickets their and back. To this day I can't believe that it actually worked and I am flabbergasted by my brothers flexible morals. Is it wrong to take advantage of the people who prey on underage girls??????
