Library As A Place: Crimes

I got this news few days ago and though about writing about it, but I was just too busy and did not have much motivation until today.CBS2Chicago and Naperville Sun cover the story about crimes in libraries, with the highlight on sexual related threats.  Interestingly, they found that after getting informed by patrons, librarians did nothing, not even report the polices.   They also shows that it happens in a few libraries in that area as well.

Why is that?  It could be a very complex one to answer, since it seems like it contain a lot of social contexts and layers in this issue.  It could be because of poor policy, individual, community, professional, or all of those mentioned.
