Mom Pretends to Be 12 to Catch Online Predator (VIDEO)

How far would you go to protect your kids from online dangers?

A Harlingen, Texas mom recently went under cover to capture an online predator.

As the woman explained to Action 4 News, "He was being very explicit about what he wanted done. He wanted (oral sex) and told me what position."

Watch the video below to find out who "Freddie Love" turned out to be — which might be the scariest part of all — and how this daring mom assisted the police in his capture.

I understand the upset about the child only being 12 and on facebook. However it did say in the story that the daughter went to her mom and said this man named Freddie Love is trying to friend me. I think that the 12 yr old showed huge responsibility by going to her mom. Makes me think that mom and daughter have a wonderful relationship and the daughter showed that she can be trusted.

Why would you allow your 12 year old to have a face book page at all??

This is a great job,i think all mums should follow her foot steps. As already said by some of the commentators we should not allow children under 18 to join face book,and if they do please make sure you keep an eye.Bravo
