IA - Offender’s Home Vandalized

Mob mentality
Original Article

We modified the title, we all know how the media likes to add the "pedophile" word to the title. The media has no clue what that term truly means, they seem to think sex offender = pedophile, which is not true! You can email the reporter using the link below, and tell him the difference.

A convicted sex offender moved into the small Marshall County town of Liscomb and quickly learned he was not welcome.

_____ was greeted with smashed windows and the word “Pedophile” spray-painted on his garage. “We got spray paint on our garage last night around midnight. And the window got broken,” _____ said, pointing to the damage.

We couldn't find any neighbors who admitted to doing this but we also couldn't find any who felt bad about it.
- Of course they don't, but a crime is a crime, and the police should do their jobs and investigate the crime!

For the simple fact what’s on his garage lets everybody know who he is, where he lives,” says neighbor Joe Robinson. “I don’t know. I’m not upset about it.”
- The online registry (hit-list) is for that, but apparently someone used the registry to target this family for vigilantism, and by the police not investigating it further, they are condoning it!

If it’s true they got what came to them,” adds neighbor Alex Draft. “I live right over here and I got a younger sibling, she’s about 14 years old and she’s kinda been scared to come out here lately.”

Police understand the neighbors’ frustration. Afterall, _____ molested a five year old girl back in 2005. But authorities say he did his time and he has to live somewhere.

The bottom line is these individuals are in our society,” says Marshall County Sheriff Ted Kamatchus. “We can’t victimize those people based on something that they’re legally doing.”
- So why aren't you investigating the crime?  That is you job isn't it?

_____’s wife says the couple just wants to live at the home in peace, “We just want to be left alone so we can live our life without all the hassles that they give to pedophiles and stuff.”

Neighbors say they know the _____ have to live somewhere just not in their town.

It makes my gut wrench,” Robinson says glancing at the _____ on their front porch. “Especially to watch him sit there watching those kids. Is it going to continue? I don’t want him to be here to continue.”

Police say _____ could face charges for failing to report his change of address.
- And what about the criminals who vandalized his home?

"- And what about the criminals who vandalized his home?" This does not count. So now this victim may be arrested for failing to register. Has it become very very clear as to the mind set today in America. Here is another good one:
“If it’s true they got what came to them,” adds neighbor Alex Draft. “I live right over here and I got a younger sibling, she’s about 14 years old and she’s kinda been scared to come out here lately.” Other than the police now wanting to arrest this person, do we read about anyone interceding for this person? Or the city? County? The state?

things like this breed more vigilante behavior. If we examine what was said in this we see that the reporters are stirring the pot with their comments. They say they will check to see if they can arrest him for not registering. One might think he has or he wouldn't have risked calling the police who have said he is not doing anything illegal living there. The only crime here is his house was damaged. No one tends to care about that. We all have neighbors that if we knew what they have done in their life we would surely want them to move. but as it it goes we don't and leave people alone. There is a line where our rights end and from what I was told in school that is the end of your nose. Once you cross that line your nose is in another's business.
