Child visits strip club

A reader sends this North Carolina story:
Cary Dad In Trouble For Taking 4-Year-Old To Strip Club

CARY, N.C. -- A Cary man could be charged with neglect for taking his 4-year-old son to a strip club.

The boy's mother said her son went to Pure Gold in Cary on Christmas Eve while in his father's custody.

Child Protective Services and the Cary Police Department are investigating.
I am not sure what to make of this. It sounds odd and inappropriate, but I do not think that it is criminal neglect. Child neglect laws are designed to make sure that kids get necessary food and shelter. They aren't written to punish odd behavior.
