    The girl, who police are not yet identifying, was able to escape after being drug several feet behind a house.


    Captain David Thompson, Owensboro Police Department, said, "I happen to know the little girl personally. She is a scrappy little ten-year old, brave girl. She stayed calm until she could get away, and at that time that she saw that she could, she did."

    register

    Let me see if I understand this sex offender register thingy...once a convicted sex offender is released from prison, he is expected to suddenly develop an honest character that will keep LE notified of his address? Do I have this correct?

    I think they should tatoo "sick ba$&rd" on the forhead of every sex offender. Then we wouldn't have to worry about registrys.
