mdoneil writes "Some disgusting scumbag masturbated while using a public Internet computer at the Portsmouth, New Hampshire library. This brazen act of public lewdness was done in the presence of a child who reported that she was afraid and did not know what to do.
It is obvious that the child can't trust the adult employees of the library to protect her. The child witnessed the perverted public sex act on Monday but was too scared to report it to anyone until the next day when her parents assisted her in contacting the police.
The library director Mary Ann List has said that the library has unfiltered access and that children using the library after school are exposed to (apparently she meant that literally) "a cross-section of the city's population." It seems that the director is OK with perverts and sex offenders in the public's library. Didn't the librarians see the material the man was looking at on the Internet, didn't they see his penis, didn't they see him masturbating?
Free access apparently means to your sex organs as well to some librarians."
