Predator Soup

Over hype by the media, parents who are in the vast minority, and a public that is more than willing to be scared and appalled is all that it takes to be brought into hysteria. I think that I've found the precise ingredients to make the best soup...

Predators online
Predators on camera
Predators at school
Predators deported
Predators reading
Predators in wheelchairs
Predators encouraged

Parents...guess what? You're child is more likely to die on the school bus than to be perped on by a predator. I guess the media couldn't draw the same amount of viewers if that's all they talked about. Or better yet, why don't you talk to your kids?


Well, as you know, I am from a small town. This week our local newspaper reported that a man who has lived in our community for the past 30 years, whom I have met a few times, was arrested for indecency with a child. Since that time, others have come forward with more accusations. It's very difficult for people to empathize with a predator. Car accidents, on the other hand, are a little easier for one to come to terms with because they are usually accidents.
