Juvenile Sex Offenders:
America's New Sweethearts
Mille Lacs News staff writer
One has to wonder why a
community would shun a small group of law-biding, tax-paying, good-hearted
neighbors whose homes are being threatened by their government and a big,
powerful corporation: and at the same time staunchly
defend a large group of convicted juvenile sex offenders as if they were being
unjustly criticized. Time and again, the argument becomes focused on those
poor, sad, abused church-going, cookie-baking, leaf-raking kids. Screw us
neighbors. Grab a rope. Get your torches and pitchforks.
First of all, let me clear up
the misconception that we are anti-sex offenders. We love sex-offenders just
like everybody else does. We want them to get all the loving
care they so richly deserve. And since all of us taxpayers are paying $235 per day for
each and every one of the little pud-pullers, we truly hope that their
therapy is working, their little psyches are being soothed, their crooked
halos straightened, their damaged lives repaired. We're paying their way. We
want them to succeed.
Seriously, why must it be one
or the other? Why are we being ostracized and accused of hating kids when what we are
interested in is protecting our homes from a large intrusive corporation who
is forcing their facility down our throats? And let us not forget the small
town government that's making it all possible. Pod people.....
