Update: Case of Rabbi David Kaye - Dateline NBC

DATELINE NBC is on Friday Night (Shabbat) - Set your VCR's so you won't miss the follow up of Dateline NBC

Catching Potential Internet Sex Predators - Part 2
Friday, December 16 -
8:00 PM, 7 Central

Last month we brought you a Dateline Hidden Camera Investigation into what experts say is a frightening and growing problem: online sexual predators— adults, targetting children.

The story got a tremendous response from parents. And now, there’s some new information about some of the men caught by our cameras.

What happened to those men? (Chris Hansen)

During our investigation, there was a parade of men showing up at a Virginia house. 19 men in 3 days arrived after making a date online with a person posing as a young teen.

Once they saw me, some headed for the door. Others stayed, apparently believing I was the child’s father or with law enforcement. None of them knew our hidden cameras were recording their every move.

One man, an army sergeant, not only tried to entice our decoy into having sex— he wanted to include a dog.

And perhaps more shocking than the number of men is who they are: One was a 54-year-old special education teacher. And he wasn’t the only one: A 50-year-old is an emergency room doctor showed up to meet a boy he thought was 14 years old. When I confronted the doctor, he said he had no intention of having sex with the boy. He only came here because he felt badly for the teen who was left home alone.

The doctor, like most of the men who showed up at our house, maintained he was not doing anything wrong.

And then there was a rabbi.

We even had a man strip naked in our garage after our decoy asked him to.

One 43-year-old showed up with a 12-pack of beer thinking he was going to meet a 14-year-old boy.
So what happened next to these men? We told you in our first report that the rabbi resigned and the teacher was fired.

On the day our report aired, the doctor’s hospital privileges were suspended and he was also fired.
Dateline has learned that one man, who had recently become a U.S. citizen, went back to Egypt.

And just this week, the Fairfax county police brought in for questioning the man who came into the house naked. They also executed a search warrant for evidence in his car and home. They seized a computer and other property.

Why do they keep showing this during Shabbat?

It seems odd that Dateline NBC would be airing this show on a Friday night, especially since one of the alleged offenders is a rabbi.

For those who don't know, Jews who are observant don't watch TV on the Sabbath.

Do you know if Dateline will re-air the show during the week?

Dateline NBC is not aimed at an Orthodox audience and Kaye is hardly an observant Jew no matter how you define the term. No child molester is. At least not in substance.

It will be shown several times over Saturday and Sunday on their cable news network MSNBC. Your best bet is to catch it Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

I believe it will be reshown in several of the MSNBC Investigates slots (not all, a 3rd or a quarter of them). Unfortunately, they don't specify in their schedule and it can vary between regions.
