Protect them from what? Check on recidivism rates for sex offenders before you speak. Your precious children are not in harm’s way unless you look at the recidivism rates for those people living in your community with DUIs on their record. Now that’s a population you’d better protect your children from. Look at the SOs that have been battered and even killed by vigilantes and the targeted vandalism to the homes of SO relatives before you say no harm will come to those on an implemented witch hunt list.
