    Hmm...the town of Cary has a designated unit, the cyber crimes unit, that specifically looks for child pornography, which is what the majority of sex offenders in Cary have been busted for. I'd be more nervous in surrounding towns without a cyber crimes unit because these people are everywhere, but at least in Cary they're actively looking for them!

    I feel sorry for the other inmates who must be around this predator.

    NO. That's why parents should ALWAYS know what their children are doing, WHERE they are, and WHO they are with.

    Getting quite tiresome that you keep trying to blame the town of Cary for people like this. Knock it off.

    If the alleged crime didn't take place at the museum, why include the museum in the headline?

    Another childs innocence has been shattered by; ONCE AGAIN ANOTHER CARY RESIDENT!!!!! How could anyone let their child walk more than 5 feet away from them in that town. ALL these headlines are just the ones being caught!!! It boggles the mind how many are not being caught or are afraid to tell anyone!!! They must give a class at the local community center or something. Poor, Poor children while your parents are trying to keep that postage stamp size yard you are neglected and fall prey to these evil residents!!!! Build a wall around that town to keep them all in and out of our communities!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
