News commentary by WJXT Assignment Manager Frank Powers

A 77-year-old man from Ohio man was arrested Friday for lewd and lascivious exhibition in front of several women and children at Crescent Beach.

Donald Gilbert was booked into the Flagler County jail.

It was the latest in a seemingly never-ending string of reports of profoundly disgusting behavior that produce a common reaction in the newsroom: "What are people thinking?"

TV and website viewers see the sanitized stories. We see the reports -- many times in graphic detail that we absolutely cannot make public. And too many times, we cannot forget.
