Today I was driving up one of the roads near my house that happens to drive along the backside of an elementary school, a school I went to as a kid.
Along the fence near the gate, smoking cigarettes, leaned two speaking with each other. They appeared not to be armed, with no vehicles, no tools, and
no orange vests that signifies some sort of community service or road work. This fence is also located near a small parking lot in the back, in
between the cafeteria area and one of the few playgrounds
Now, this was around two, two fifteen, and elementary schools around here don't get out until about four in the afternoon. So I presumed that this
may be the time that kids may have just gone inside from recess or were about to be able to go outside and play.
I thought this over with myself, and finally I decided to go with "better safe than sorry", even though I was definitely worried about being the
lady who called in a lion when it was actually a poodle with a fresh new haircut.
A few hours ago, I checked the local bookings for my local department and then my specific area and noticed there was a person brought in for being a
violated sex offender. I ran the name, pulled up the mugshot, and there was one of the men that I described to dispatch.
However, his last mugshot was in 2006, so I will have to wait until tomorrow or next week to see the updated photo, to be sure and match his clothes
(a bright blue t-shirt, shouldn't be hard to spot).
I don't say all of that to brag, I say all of that to say this; if this is indeed the man, and he was caught leaning up against a fence smoking
cigarettes while he watched young children play, then don't you think he's probably been up to a little nasty surfing in the comfort of his own
home? Don't you want those kinds of people regulated? Especially distanced around our children?
If anyone would like, I'll gladly give the name, however I've chosen to withhold it due to people that may oppose my stance on the topic. OR my post
will go unnoticed, either way I've said my piece and feel as though I may have stopped something that could have or couldn't have escalated, and
I'm alright with that.
