Dear PoP – Mayor Corps Alert Please Post

“Dear PoP,

Please post that at 1:30PM today 8/4 at the Adams Mill playground, some students from the Mayor’s Youth Corps were taking “up skirt” pictures of a 3 YEAR GIRL. She was just changed and was running from her mom up some playground equipment. She didn’t have any diaper on yet and these pedophiles lean over from otherwise doing nothing and take phone camera pics. My wife notified the lady, who owns a local business and demanded the creeps empty the phone. We should have called the cops. What do we do with these Neanderthals? I’ve notified Green Corps and our ANC folks. They’ll be off the street in no time…”

This is obviously extremely disturbing.  The writer of this “Dear PoP” is the young girl’s father and is understandably extremely upset.  I can’t imagine how outraged I’d be in a similar situation.  I hope to God the offenders can be identified and punished.  I’m not sure the offenders realize just how abhorrent the act they committed was.  I most definitely think they should have the crap scared out of them.  Of course I wasn’t there so I don’t know exactly what happened but I’d be cautious to label these teens something beyond idiots.  And they most certainly were idiots.   And we’ve spoken about this in the past but it is becoming ever more clear that these Summer youth programs need more supervision.  Of that I am certain.
