“It turns out that sex offenders and particularly pedophiles secrete an enzyme for DDHT, which is actually detectable,” stated Cohen (as Morad) to Moore. “It is three times the level of non-perverts, so the phrase ‘sweating like a rapist’ is actually based on science. In Israel, they’ve developed a machine that is used in schools and playgrounds to detect anyone coming in, and if they detect the pedophile, the wand alerts the law enforcement and schools within a hundred-mile radius.”
Cohen ran the gadget over himself and it was silent. When he ran it over Moore’s physique, it started to beep.
