          A Predator Next Door

          August 17, 2010

          With approximately 704,000 sex offenders in America, you may bump into them more often than you think – at the mall, the grocery store or the movies. But how would you feel if a sex offender moved in next door or on your street?

           

          Teach your children how to self-protect against a stranger.

           

          A Danger to Society?

          A convicted sex offender recently inherited a house on Susan and Barry’s street. The couple has a 4-year-old son, and they say it’s their mission to force him out of their neighborhood for good. And, when Robert was last on the show, he revealed that his 12-year-old sister, Robin, was raped and murdered by sex offender and serial killer, Rodney Alcala. 

            

          “They’ve given up their rights when they’ve violated somebody.”

            



          Redemption for Predators? 

          Husband and wife pastors Jose and Betsy currently house 11 sex offenders in their neighborhood. They believe that some can be rehabilitated, but they say they’re facing opposition from community members.

            

          “The only way that a sex offender changes is with a bullet in his head.”
