The POP Squad in the flesh.

”Apologies to the family/friends of the individual in this video for the embarrassment their actions have brought you. TO ALL VIEWERS: the friends and family members of the individuals featured in POP Squad videos have nothing to do with the choice that has been made.”
— The opening disclaimer

P.O.P. Squad (short for “Prey On Predators”) is a group that catches pedophiles and other creeps that come to meet children. The group is lead by a man known only by “Incognito”; “Nito” for short.

Here is their website.

Tropes present in POP Squad videos:

  • Audience Participation: Nito will sometimes live-stream his stings on Instagram, and will ask the viewers if they have any questions for the predator.
  • Blatant Lies: Predators in the videos will lie, even when the evidence against them is airtight.
  • Gotta Kill 'Em All: Nito strongly believes that predators deserve the death penalty, and isn’t afraid to say so to the predators’ faces.
  • Humiliation Conga: A well-deserved one to each predator who shows up.
  • Karma Houdini: The vast majority of the creeps caught by POP Squad often evade justice, with a slim minority actually being arrested/convicted.
  • Advertisement:
  • Papa Wolf: Nito, himself a father, often points out to predators that if the predator came face to face with the parent of the child instead of him, the parent would probably beat the living hell out of them.
  • The Quiet One: Some of the predators, upon being caught, do not say a word to Nito and just walk away, remaining silent throughout the video. #141 is a primary example.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here: A lot of the predators will leave immediately upon meeting Nito.
  • Smug Snake: Some of the predators are downright condescending and arrogant, to the point where even Nito can no longer talk to them professionally.
