Moving Targets [electronic resource]

Like any predatory animal, a serial criminal defines a territory through the predatory logic that guides his hunting. In this program, Professor David Canter illustrates the complexities of running a human predator to ground through three cases. The first, which occurred in Las Vegas, focuses on a teenager who was arrested for committing a crime spree that combined murderous assault, rape, and robbery; the second, which occurred in Canada, focuses on 36-year-old Garrett Young, who abducted prostitutes in St. John's, Newfoundland, and then raped, beat, and left them for dead in a rural area outside of the city; and the third, which occurred in Bath, England, focuses on a perpetrator dubbed the Batman Rapist, who struck at least 14 times.

Marauders and Commuters [electronic resource]

In the world of criminal investigation, a marauder is a serial predator who works from a centrally placed home base.

Virtual Crime and the Future [electronic resource]

In the 21st century, "we are all becoming visible...in that other, parallel world of electronic records, databases, video films, and computer memories," says Professor David Canter. "Criminals who would've been hidden in the past are also becoming visible in this virtual world-provided we know how to look for them." In this program, Canter addresses the use of data mining to track the virtual and real-world movements of criminals. Case studies include the following: Simon Wadland of Northamptonshire, who, using only his telephone, terrified 11 women into mutilating themselves and was snared by his phone records; Londoner Edgar Pearce (the Mardi Gra Bomber), a terroristic extortionist who was tripped up through a sting involving a huge surveillance campaign; and Gary Ridgway (the Gree [...]

Criminal Conversations [electronic resource]

This program interviews criminals to learn how and why they commit crimes. In a segment on burglary and auto theft, criminals describe how they break into homes and cars, what keeps them out, what they look for, and where they find it.

In a segment on rape, rapists reveal what they look for in a victim, and how to spot and discourage sexual predators. Rape survivors also explain the benefits of fighting back. Finally, the program looks at kidnapping and how to teach children to be safe without instilling fear, how to spot dangerous situations, and effective self-defense techniques.
