So terribly sad that our children can’t walk to school, to the store, to a friends house...all the places we went when we were young. I blame the permissive society, and by that I mean permitting perverts to live among us. Many years ago perverts just disappeared after they were found out...and since there is no such thing as a real “life sentence” anymore it would be a good thing if this started happening again. JMHO!
As others have already posted here, the problem is not so much that there are more perverts than there used to be. The much bigger problem is that TV news used to be just 30 minutes a day.
