It’s time for trick-or-treating, but going door-to-door can put your family at risk if you stop at the wrong house.
“As a community, we have to stick together because that’s the only way we’re going to be safer,” said a father who wants to remain anonymous. A few years ago, two of his three children were sexually abused and the crime forever changed their lives. During the Halloween season, his fear of exposing his children to strangers is heightened.
Sex offenders are everywhere. According to Steve Vukmer with the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, there are approximately 5,000 registered in Cuyahoga County alone. “There are sex offenders living all around, they’re in all communities, they’re in all areas, people are surprised, I think, when they find that out,” said Vukmer.
This story is ridiculous. Yes, GO with your children on Halloween. But do kids get grabbed and taken into houses? NO. The real risk is they get hit by cars. That’s the facts. Scaring people with trumped up fears of a sex offender on every corner is atrocious and untrue. BOOOOO!!!!This story sucks.
