You’re a mom and dad with 2 kids. Your next-door neighbour is a known pedophile; however, he has (up to this point) never, ever acted on his urges and states that he never will.

Come Friday you and the Mrs want to go to a movie... can’t find a babysitter. But hey, the next-door neighbour offers to look after your kids for you. And, since he really is a nice guy he also says he’d like to take them to the park on Saturday to give the two of you a break and after the park he’s wants to take them swimming at the local lake.

Now I’d like to know (names please) how many here will take him up on his offer.

Yes I would

No I wouldn’t

Basically nobody. So, shoot them in the face, right?

That’s not what I said or implied.

That's where the thread's gone, in case you haven't been reading.

My point is that up until now they are 100% innocent, but they do present a very real (or potential) threat to your kids regardless of innocence. Is that fair? Fair doesn’t count when talking about keeping one’s kiddies safe.

The point is that you don't trust them. Fair, I wouldn't trust them either. I also don't trust the homeless guy down the street to watch my kids for another set of reasons. If you have a point you haven't made it yet, I think it would be helpful to state it plainly instead of being coy.
