    I think some members of this council should be looking for new jobs right about now. FIRE THEM ALL! If they cannot even protect our kids they should not have their jobs.

    It's not just members of the council - the Derry police chief, resident parents, child abuse experts and the state's House Representative all spoke against the ordinance. The council's job is to listen to its constituents.

    These types of ordinances are complicated on a number of levels. Additionally, no one has a clue whether or not they protect children. I laud the council for making a sensible decision and not just passing it to curry favor with voters who get wrapped up in the emotionality of the issue.

    They really could head anywhere where these laws are on the books - so many of them are being currently being challenged as unconstitutional that none of them have much weight until the Courts sort it all out.
