    Another sicko, and another Cary, Raleigh sex offense. Other cities have it's crime, but this offense seems to be more re-occuring in these cities. I mean what do these people think they are doing to these children, besides their own selfish acts and sick pleasures. Creep x 1,000,000 = life in prison.
