Two years ago the National Crime Agency revealed there are up to 80,000 people in the UK who present some kind of sexual threat to children online – a figure some experts say is conservative. (Guardian 3 Sep 2018)

If this proportion of the British population is applied to the total population of the US it means that there could, in theory at least, be as many as 480,000 people in the United States who could present some kind of sexual threat to children online”. Whoa! We are in dead trouble!
The web has brought numerous advantages, but this type of thing, along with fake news is the threatening downside.
