Police: Concerned Citizens Help Bust Two Sex Offenders Breaking The Law

Recently two men from Eastern Carolina were busted for living to close to a school or park.

The men told police it was hard for them to find a place to live.

Morehead City Police say it was concerned citizens who notified them that these men were breaking the law.

Major Richard Abell of the Morehead City Police Department says it's important for people to check the North Carolina Sex Offender Registry when new people move into your neighborhood.

    What was the point of this story that was already reported about a month ago Mr. Baldwin? Why did you condemn people that you did NOT talk to? I agree that it was a self-conceded mega ego that caused you to report an old media topic because you cannot find real news.

    why did the police allow a sex offender to register an address that was located next to a school?

    Um, yep, I'll be more than happy to "rat out" any sex offenders I get the chance to. If they had not done something wrong, or if they are not doing something wrong, they have nothing to worry about now do they. We should be more worried about the obamophiles making us a socialist country. He is the new Hitler.

    Actually I have a better idea than jail but unfortunately it's not an option. Our children are not safe anywhere.

    This is just like Nazi Germany or Communist Cambodia. Rat out your neighbors even if they aren't bothering you directly (or anyone else). Make lists. I'm sure re-education camps are just a few years away. Who cares what the perverts are looking at from their windows? You can't control what people look at or think. Unless you're a Nazi/fascist, in which case you'll surely try.

    These people know that they are not to be near Schools. This is probably just the begining of many sex offenders that live near Schools. Most that are from out of state fail to register in state and when caught need to be put in jail. A concerned Law Enforcement Officer.
