    If its not the young children the perpetrators bothers its the elderly. These are the people that needs the most protection. I notice one of the comments below mention race, it is not about race. Than again if ALL races would conform to all laws of the lands, no would be afraid to walk the earth. But I am afraid that is not so. Continue to watch the children and the elderly in your own community.

    Suspect must not be white; they usually give a description when they're white.

    there should be an underground hole for monsters like this to go to when they are caught.

    My prayers are with the victim

    Just atrocious- an elderly person can't even feel safe in his/her own home. I pray that they catch this scumbag, and that this poor, sweet lady recovers.
