I appreciate those who are concerned of an RSO who lives so close to a school, playground, park, etc.. I'm a parent of 3 children and am very concerned of pedophiles who prey, lure, and abuse children. And before you start "yahooing" at my first comment, please understand that not only am I a parent of three children, I also have to register as a sex offender. I was 26, my victim was almost 18yo, and this in NO WAY makes what I did right....it was 100% wrong, and I deserved the punishment that I received. But I am not, was not a child molester nor have I ever preyed upon children. Unfortunately, people think all sex offenders are pedophiles or looking to molest their children. Without knowing their situation everyone jumps to judgment. The ONLY reason that we have as many on the registry is because Texas will lose money and politicians want to keep their jobs! It's on their websites, it has NOTHING to do with the safety of my or your children. The Colonel of the Texas DPS even stated when asked by our legislature "out of the 64,000 people on the registry how many people truly do we need on there?" His reply, "maybe 8,900...the ones who are truly a threat." Even he knows that everyone on the registry does not pose a threat. The same laws that entrapped those of us on the registry AFTER we had done our time are the same laws that will affect your children if they (which I know you are shouting out "my children will never do that!!") are even caught in a "boyfriend/girlfriend fling." Just wait until your neighbors want YOU and YOUR CHILDREN to leave the neighborhood not because of your children getting hot/heavy before or after prom, but because they are listed as a sex offender. Your neighbors will NOT come over and ask what happened, they will treat you as a leper just because you or yours are on the same registry as child molesters, pedophiles, murderers who committed a sex crime. Yes, I know your children were "just playing doctor" or "doing what teenagers do because of hormones...." but now they will be sex offenders and it will affect your children. Of course, this will NEVER happen to you or your children, but what if it does? Where will you live? Where will you work? Where will you go to church? Where will you eat? Where will you go for friends? HOW will you live?? If you aren't faced with our situation, be blessed. And if you truly want to get rid of us all, please come meet with us and help us find the answers to the questions I asked above. If you can't help, don't hurt!
