    It is a pretty sick indivual who would do something like that. I think that the penalty should be worse than what it is. What would make a person do something like that is more than I can fathem. You would think with that show on T.V. "How to Catch a Preadator with Chris Hansen" it would get people more aware of how sick this world has become. No child is safe from the sickos. What as the Public should we do to protect our children from these sort of people.
