Some Points To Ponder

Making My Point

In my book, Eyes of Forgotten Innocence, I didn't just do poems that expounded the plight of the "at risk" child. I included many pieces of information drawn from many reliable sources to bring my point home.

Here is an example of one such point. Remember, I wrote this book in 2004. Now we can check to see how correct some of the predictions by these reliable sources have been.

This is a true fact.

Did you know that many libraries allow people (this includes sex offenders) to view pornography on the library's computers even though children may be seated right next to the pervert viewing the smut

      The problem with letting anyone view porn is the specific library's policy about "privacy". I've even seen news reports about libraries REFUSING to stop people from publicly viewing porn because their privacy policy said they were not allowed to monitor nor interfere. Ridiculous!

      The discrepancy comes from repeat offenders and incidents which the gender and age of the perpetrator were either not recorded or not discernible (you know, he could have been 15 or he could have been 19, I couldn't tell).

      Thanks for reading!

      A number of years ago I found a man watching porn videos at the Redmond Public Library. I informed the staff and they had a staff member hit the kill switch for all the Internet computers. The man was of course confused by why his computer went off along with everyone else. He headed for the door where he was met by a police officer. The Redmond City Hall is right next door. :)

      In most (if not all) states, is it not illegal to allow minors access to porn? Where in this country would they allow pornography to be viewed in full public view of children? It would violate minimum age laws. I can understand isolated incidents that did it illegally, but I can't imagine it being done legally.

      I will need to see documentation before I believe that one.

      I do have a question about your numbers though. It says that 2,062 incidents were reported: 472 by children and 962 by adults. That totals only 1,434 incidents. What about the other 628?
