Who is qualified to participate in Halloween

leave a comment »

A new law in Simi Valley, California prohibits sex offenders from participating in Halloween at all. They are not allowed to pass out candy or decorate, and they have to put a sign up saying they do not have candy. I understand why, considering it is a children based holiday and a lot of sex offenders have committed crimes against children; but at the same time technically they do have rights also. What do people expect to happen in the five seconds that a child spends at a house trick or treating? And if the child is being properly supervised then the chances of anything happening should be eliminated. With that being said though, some people are extremely sick and will snatch up a child in front of their older sibling. I am on the fence about this law, but I think my main view is it’s better to be safe than sorry. What do you guys think?
