In Case You Think You'll Never See These People...

I had a brief conversation yesterday while walking Fritz with a guy who looked extremely familiar to me. Well, my suspicions were correct - he's in the Registered Sex Offenders database for my mom's beat. I don't know what he did to get in the database except that the victim was under 18. That's all the info you get. Do I want to assemble a torch-carrying mob and storm his apartment building? No, not really. But did I come face-to-face with a known criminal? Yes. In fact, I'm kind of glad that I knew this because of a database and not because of neighborhood gossip - that's the kind of thing that starts torch-carrying mobs. So, be alert, crimewatchers.

I will start the torch-carrying-mob for you.
