      This letter is so true but missing one important thing. Sex sells! The government is making a fortune off of it. The real threat is boring and not news worthy in their eyes. A few people hit by cars ” God rest their souls” a real problem on Haloween doesn’t sell as well as harassing and monitoring sex offenders who with out their intervention would be on the streets like zombies on Holloween chasing children around. So un true but sounds good so they continue to sell something that’s not true but makes them look good because no sex crimes occurred but would not have without all the hype and waste of tax payers money. They know all about The “Trick” on Haloween! Sex offenders make up about 3 percent of the population. Maybe History can repeat itself.

      I agree. A story about children being hit by automobiles on Halloween in the media just doesn’t have the staying power that mythical monsters do, meaning sex offenders. Everyone wins. Media outlets make money; probation officers and the police look like heroes and politicians can use it as a selling point. The people who lose are us, those who want to be left alone on Halloween but can’t because of the power of the lie. As we as society remains “precrime” at its core, things will never change. Precrime exists; it’s why all of us are on the registry. I know we committed an act to get on it but the whole reason for its existence is because the government “knows” we will commit another act. That’s a different motive than doing things the old fashioned way. Someone is punished, he or she pays their debt and then can move on. That’s an utterly passe sentiment with psychological profiling and precrime. Society, except it already. Registered citizens do not hurt children on Halloween. Automobiles are actually more dangerous! Media, leave us alone and quit sensationalizing a problem that doesn’t exist!
