While doing a routine search in my zip code for sex offenders, I discovered that my new "better" neighbor was indeed a sex offender with a felony towards a child under 13. Sigh. I know they are everywhere and having done their time have a right to live back in society, but come on!
I warned the kids, showed them the man's picture and told my neighbors with children of his presence. I felt like it was us against him. Recently, we discovered two more men with sex crimes listed to that address.
I thought, no way, they are pulling a fast one on the parole board, that can't be allowed. My nosy-get-things-done mom puts in a call to the parole board or somewhere. She is told that, yes, they are all registered and living at that address. They, in fact, share a parole officer and are current and compliant.
Its just another beautiful day in the neighborhood.
