The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

Predators of summer

Christmas brings the pedophile Santas, Halloween brings the haunted houses with perverts running about, and evidently summer brings the pool party predators.

Scott Lurken, 47 of River Drive NE, is being held without bond at the Brevard County jail, according to a Palm Bay police spokeswoman. Investigators said they don't know how many kids have been invited to pool parties at Lurken's home over the years, but they said they have had three young girls who don't know each other come forward on their own and they wonder if there are more.

Detectives say he performed oral sex on a nine-year-old girl. They also believe he abused an 11-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl.
