Information Regarding Sex Offenders

By Rod Hemphill

Good afternoon, Readers.

What an incredible story this weekend of the recovery of two children kidnapped by a pedophile! One was abused for 4 1/2 years, and the neighbors thought this was just a normal father and child.

According to Family Watchdog, 1 in 5 girls and 1 in 6 boys will be sexually molested before their 18th birthday. And 1 in 5 children have been sexually propositioned on the internet.

Remember the several reports throughout last year of pedophiles abusing children, and their neighbors were unaware of any such activity. It is especially important that we know of any such persons living in our neighborhoods. The link pasted in below will open an interactive web site which describes registered sex offenders and their crimes, and locates their residences and work places.

But a word of caution: Remember that not all sex offenders register with the government even though they are required to do so. And many/most registered offenders do not re-register when they change residence locations. Still, it is important to be aware of those who are identified, as well as being cautious and careful regarding the possibility of unidentified pedophiles that may move into or cruise our neighborhoods, and the areas around our schools and places where young people tend to congregate.
