Squeeze, your post and my own personal situation I have been dealing with for the last few weeks really hit home with me!!!! Several months ago someone very close to me began seeing a man quite a few years her junior (70 vs 57). I thought it was odd - I don't really see this person as a cougar! Next thing I know, she's moved this guy in with her! She told me "it's not sexual - he lives with his sister and they argue all the time." Okay, too much information. About two weeks later, my husband tells me that the man is a RSO. I wanted to argue with him saying we had to be careful about judging him that there are different tiers and levels.... He looked at me like I was crazy. I too thought WTH is wrong with me!! So, I looked him up on the Texas Sex Offender site. Sure enough! There he was - all 6 feet and 280 pounds of a registered sex offender. Smiling and grinning with OUR FREAKING ADDRESS as his home address!!! The lady rents a trailer from us on our property. Needless to say I FREAKED! His victim - a 4 y/o girl. I immediately called my friend and told her "he's a registered sex offender." She said "no he's not." I said "yes, he is. Look him up." My husband said no way was he going to live on our property. When I spoke with my friend again she said she really was unaware of his past. I gave her the benefit of the doubt, as I thought of my rant about Klunder's wife and how 3CK so eloquently pointed out that she probably didn't have a clue because that's how these rats operate. He had told her he had served time in the pen, but apparently did not elaborate that it was because he had sexually molested a 4 y/o. Long story short - he did move out. My friend says she loves him and can't give him up so she spends the week living with him and the weekends at her trailer. Ugh! I literally want to throw up when she told me she loved him and "couldn't give him up."
I'm sure this creep plea-bargained his sentence way down. He only served about 6 years from what I understand. Disgusting. Again, Squeeze, your questions are my questions.....WHY? Why is he even allowed to see the light of day? Why isn't he still locked up? I have a sneaking suspicion he was downloading *advertiser censored* onto my friend's computer. I warned her she could get into a lot of trouble if the feds find out. She said that he was not downloading *advertiser censored*. Okay....I wouldn't believe a thing this guy said. I don't understand her tolerance of him. I guess offenders are someone' son, someone's brother, someone's relative, etc., but why is there tolerance of any kind of sexual abuse of a child????? :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
