So freaked out! ( child sex offender related)

We have a playground close by in the next neighborhood that I like to take the kids to when its nice. I have a dd3 and ds1. I usually put them in the stroller and walk there. Well we went yesterday and this lady that lives there comes out of her house and tells me to be careful that in the house right at the end right by the playground lives a child sex offender. Apparently this guy sodomized and molested a 8 and 10 year old girls. I can't believe it. I'm so freaked out. She told me the whole neighborhood is trying to get rid of him but apparently our town doesn't have a law against him living right next to the playground. Wth?! This is a really nice area too and lots of families with children. The house this guy lives in is beautiful but kinda creepy because all the blinds are down and just a little crack open at the bottom. He probably stares at kids playing all day, sick! I'm just really scared to go there now especially alone with the kids:/ way to ruin my summer fun.

Oh my! That would freak me out too! Hopefully something can be done soon. I don't think someone like that needs to be anywhere near a playground.

Wow.  Keep writing your local and state representatives about wanting that legislation.  And see if there are any groups or petitions going around that you can join in to try and make change.

But, I'll also advise you to make sure these stories are true before plunging into the fray.  Sometimes people start nasty rumors about reclusive old men that are entirely unfounded.

Yea for sure. I always carry my cell and I'm getting pepper spray now. I'm gonna drive by the house to get the address so I can look him up online so I know what he looks like.

I know. I can't believe he is right by the playground. I'm so disgusted. There should be a law against it.

I thought a sex offender couldnt live within so many miles of a playground or school. I guess I am wrong.
