Why is this article so slanted towards a single aspect of the suspected criminal's interests and backgrounds? Why is it not incriminating against computer shop owners, IT people, t-shirt makers, techies or so on? Maybe better, why didn't it focus on people who let a 14 year old do activities without supervision and associate with strangers, let alone inappropriately associate in their presence?
"Leatherbury told the court Irwin invited the boy to his Onancock computer store, made T-shirts for the boy and gave him gifts, including disc golf equipment and a laptop computer with a webcam"
IMO, a hack job article that places an improper focus on a single aspect of the incident and shows the writer of having an internal bias of some sort. Why wasn't it a slam on back yard tenters? I hope local disc golf people are writing letters to the editor or paper itself complaining about the article and the way unfairly puts the sport in a bad light.
To be clear, no qualms with you or your post, cwphish. But I think we sometimes need to quit apologizing and stand up against the crap comments based on stereotypes and misperceptions.
