Won’t Someone Think of the Children?

Posted by on October 30, 2008

[This post was originally written for my employer’s blog, Show-Me Daily.]

One of the top stories in the Post-Dispatch today reports that registered sex offenders will be closely monitored by increased police presence on Halloween.

There are some problems with sex offender registration as a whole, so it may not be worth the increased police presence. Some states require handgun owners to register with the state; would we want increased police presence outside the homes of registered gun-owners?

If parents worry (they will, and should, worry) for their children’s safety on this most-spooky holiday, perhaps their concern should center around more obvious dangers. The kind you can literally see coming.
