mdoneil writes "A 25 year old man was seen by librarians entering a bathroom with a 14 year old runaway. Librarians then observed the child and the adult male with their clothing down their ankles, still in the bathroom of the public library. Librarians told them to stop.
Librarians conferred and asked them to leave the library. Yep, the asked them to leave the library. Did they call the cops, nope. The libraians never bothered to help the child that they saw being sexually abused. The libraians failed to do the least required of any adult who witnesses a child being abused by an adult, the least required of an adult who finds a man with his pants around his ankles in a ladies room accompanied by a partially nude child
They conferred and told them to leave. They ordered a sexual offender, a pervert they witnessed harm a child, to go away. Not only did they just fail to protect the child they forced the child to leave a library — a place that should be known as a safe place for a child — with a dangerous pervert.
The library staff are as disgusting, if not more disgusting, as the criminal. They were able to follow them into the ladies room, they were able to order the child molester to stop his abhorent behavior, they were able to order them from the library, yet they couldn't pick up the phone and call 911.
