Registered sex offender and pedophile, Jerry Garrett seen hanging out at small kids table in the kids section of McCracken county library. Library officials say that they cannot do anything about it and that it is a common problem for known sex offenders to hang in kiddie section gawking at children. State police also say they can't keep them out of there because it is a public place. I personally talked to library staff,police, and three times to wpsd and no one seems to want to open this can of worms. Parents stay with your kids at all times at the library, its no safe haven.

Thanks for sharing, so many things go on with nothing done. Thanks for informing us parents, not that I would leave my child alone but I'm sure some do.

Thank you for letting us know! My kids daycare group sometimes goes to the library but without my presence I won't be allowing my child to go on those field trips.

He's got to leave at some point, wait outside and beat him into a speech impediment and I doubt that library seems too appealing to him any longer

The library has a sign that says that children under 12 are not to be without a parent or guardian upstairs. I would never let a kid go up there alone but I bet some parents still do and think that it is okay as long as they are downstairs. The library, the mall and the movie theaters are not baby-sitters but sadly a lot parents think that.

Question, how do you know who is or who is not? Many of them who were caught before the law took place are not listed. Shall we accuse everyone just because they sit at a table? Does this library have security? Where are the parents??
sure

The library does not have security from what i have seen. The parents often drop the kids off and expect the library to watch.

Pedophilia is a medical/psychological diagnosis. Are you sure he is a pedophile? I don't think you have a clue what you're talking about.

I'm not Dr. Phil, but the sex offender registry says he raped a 4 year old child.

then you don't know if he's a pedophile. Dr phil wouldn't either since it's a medical diagnosis

and it don't mater to me how long ago it was. Some things are unforgivable, worse than murder in my opinion. To take advantage of a small child like that, somebody needs a some stick-time. Pool cue, night stick, perhaps a good 2x4.

you do realize that all sex offenders are not pedophiles don't you? You get caught urinating in public and you will have to register as a sex offender and many people are registered for offenses against adults so lets not classify them all the same.

In your first post you wrote that pedophilia is a medical/psychological disorder and the went on to say that it's a medical disorder that Dr. Phil would know nothing about. Isn't Dr. Phil a Psychologist? But I believe that you are missing the point. I do believe that I would be upset if a man convicted of raping a four year old child was associating with children not related to him in a public place. Right or wrong, pedophile or not, he should have lost that right at the time of his conviction.

I'm pretty sure he means sex offenders as in men or women who engage in sex with minors. Every man I know has taken a pee outside, those r the problem ones. This post isn't about what is considered a sex offender and what isn't.. It's about how there's nothing we can do having one chill at the library while we are with our children.

AND if someone is considered a sex offender because of something they did as an adult then it was either sodomy or rape.. Not someone I want to be around or have my children around thank you very much.

i agree with that but society as a whole automatically classifies anyone that is a sex offender as a pedophile. There are also many innocent people on the registry. All it takes is someone saying something and now days the man or woman is automatically guilty especially in paducah. I would not want the guilty ones around my children either but I refuse to be like the rest of society and label them all pedophiles.

The law should be able to do something. They say they can't because it's a public place but a sec offender isn't supposed to be in a park. Parks are public places and if I'm not mistaken they are not supposed to hang out where kids congregate. Seems like they could do something.
