Watch Chris Hansen from Dateline and To Catch a Predator sit down with Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson.

He's baaaaaack...and this time, he's in Flint.

Chris Hansen, the television journalist who gained notoriety for his To Catch a Predator series, has a new YouTube series called Have a Seat with Chris Hansen. While working with law enforcement groups in different cities, Chris and local police would set up sting operations to bust child predators.

His follow-up show, Hansen vs. Predator was produced for Crime Watch Daily. It debuted in 2016 and ended in 2018; it was wildly popular with millions of views, so Chris started his own YouTube channel and podcast. And, in another odd #PureMichigan twist, he teamed up with Insane Clown Posse to "catch" a predator.

He also sat down with Genesee County Sheriff Chris Swanson to talk about the GHOST team (Genesee Human Oppression Strike Team) here in Flint which has caught several child predators and human traffickers locally.

And, of course, there's video of a local sting included in the interview, because that's what we all really want to see, isn't it?

Hey, I'm all for whatever brings these people down, whether it's a phone call or a TV show. Michigan is on the top 10 list for human trafficking in the country in 2020; we have one of the highest percentage rates in the country, and that is NOT something to be proud of.

Love seeing Sheriff Swanson team up with Chris Hansen on this. Keep up the good work!
