It disgusts me how accountability has been thrown out the window. Nothing is ever done until it is too late. If it were a crime to sit on your hands and do nothing, there would be a lot of 'authorities' in prison right now.

I agree, but in the same breathe the mother should of been watching/walking staying close to her daughter while she was outside their home. If the mother knew of a situation that took place she also has an obligation to protect her child. I know my child would not have left my site if I felt there was a predator in my neighboorhood. Just a thought.

The mother bears some responsibility for what happened. When she knew that a monster was lurking nearby she should have been more attentive to her daughter's whereabouts.

Maybe the cops were too busy dealing stolen heroin! Typical Philly cops!

If one person accuses another of something and has no proof, then what are the police supposed to do? Frankly, I think they act too much in cases like that. Without proof, then law enforcement just becomes witch hunters, arresting anyone off the word of people who surely couldn't be lying about something like that.
