Our county sheriff is out grandstanding about getting tough on sex offenders. He says he wants to see every one of us either dead or behind bars! I’m both angry, and terrified. What can I do?

Certainly the fact that an elected official is out grandstanding is disappointing. However, grandstanding about sex offenders is not uncommon for an elected official, and the sheriff is entitled to his/her misguided views. This is precisely why educating our elected officials is so crucial. A sheriff of all people should already know that there are many people listed on registries that have never touched a child inappropriately or committed a predatory act.
