(Dmytro “Henry” Aleksandrov, Headline USA) In mass groupings and individual abodes, almost 2,000 convicted pedophiles are living across 442 locations in California that are disturbingly close to schools, including elementary grade levels where children go.
These so-called “pedophile dens” all contain at least three sexual degenerates living inside. In some of those places, there may be even 18 convicted pedophiles living there, according to the Post Millennial.
Law enforcement officials said that the current situation is bad for both parties.
“These guys and gals have addictions, and to put them anywhere near a temptation is not serving them and it’s not serving the kids,” Sacramento County Deputy Sheriff’s Association president Nate Seger said.
Some people believe that these places where convicted pedophiles live could only provoke them to commit similar crimes.
“It’s terrifying,” former Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Sam Dordulian said. “If they’re all congregating with each other, it’s just creating the environment for more of these crimes to occur.”
“Even if they’re trying to stay clean, they’re in an environment where they’re around other pedophiles,” Dordulian added. “They’re gonna be talking about children, having child porn available. And it’s just creating a situation where you’re almost sure there’s going to be another offense.”
The problem is that a lot of these “dens” are not located in bad neighborhoods. As a matter of fact, many of these pedophiles live in nice homes in neighborhoods where families live, which means that these people are very close to these families and schools nearby.
One of the people, Ramon Nolasco, 74, who lives next to some of these child sex offenders, thinks that no matter how many times he or his neighbors try to tell the authorities that something needs to be done about the issue, nothing happens.
“This is dangerous for families around here. There are lots of families here, many schools. In the morning and afternoon there are a lot of students walking by here,” he said.
“They should be in other places where there are no families. But the government only talks, they don’t do anything. We feel abandoned.”
Eugene Hargro, 77, the owner of that building, also happens to be a sexual degenerate. He was released from prison in 1992 after serving 11 years. The building is located several blocks away from two schools.
Hargro tried to defend himself and other sex offenders by saying that the building was there before schools were built.
“You don’t just grab people and throw them out because they put a school right there,” he said. “The school is not right in front of this house. Now, it could be a problem if it was, but it’s not. It’s way over there. And I was here first.”
