Erin Runnion founder of The Joyful Child Foundation lost her beautiful young daughter Samantha to a sex offender. She talks to Colleen Williams on Nonstop News LA about Irvine-aposs proposed ban on sex offenders near parks...
We are so sick of the media and others making it appear as if all ex-sex offenders are out hiding behind bushes in parks, drooling, just waiting for some kid to snatch. It's pure fear mongering that is not backed by the facts.
You will notice how most news agencies queue up some playground or park scene near the beginning or during the video to make it seem as if all ex-sex offenders are child molesting, pedophile predators, which is pure BS!
When are you going to report all sides other the story and all facts, instead of the usual BS to help you get ratings and viewers?
You continue to put all ex-sex offenders into the child molesting, pedophile predators category, which is simply not true. That would be like saying all ex-felons are serial killers because a couple are.
Not all ex-sex offenders enter parks to "leer" at children! Many ex-sex offenders have children of their own and are simply taking them there for the same reasons you do, to play and have fun. Not all offenders have harmed children, or even adults.
This is the type of mentality that is keeping the hysteria alive, instead of solving problems.
Are ex-sex offenders going to get a tax break because they cannot use the parks they are paying taxes for? They should!
