Before the age of technology, not many people were as worried about the predators that lurk around our society. But as technology as evolved, allowing us to access an instant stream of information in a split second, it has given us an idea of the number of incidents that occur daily. Society has become more aware of the degenerates that target children.
It is a very real problem, and it happens all the time even in our developed nation. There can be a number of reasons why a child is targeted, but none of them have good endings, which is quite scary. Some complain that people are now too paranoid about their kids, but there always grim reminders of what could happen.
