So, exactly what do all you neo-Nazi's propose to do with sex offenders? Do you want to kill all of them? I understand about wanting to protect your children, but I think there is a different way to do this. It is called: Child education. Is this a totally new concept to you. My 10-year-old grandson knows exactly what to do if he is approached by anyone he feels is strange or uncomfortable. Education is more important than punishment in this particular instance.

However, I guess the prevalent attitude explains why Amarillo is often termed "the arm-pit of the State" by many more enlightened persons.

Oh, and by the way, I forgot to say that I am aware that there is a very important civil law suit occurring in Amarillo regarding this issue. I take that situation into consideration.

Why don't you care about this happening in your own state? Should we just keep under the bridges like you all do?

Well bjr Texan, I guess we need to wait until those with that "armpit" attitudes start fading away. Slowly but surely, they will. They very much deserve the label.

Do you have an alternative place where these people are supposed to live? I hope so, because, they do have some legal protection. Isn't it enough that you notice everyone in your neighborhood of the presence of a sex offender? I know all of you teach your children about "Stranger, danger," don't you? Where, exactly, do you wish to have the sex offender live? Yes, I know -- in prison. But he has paid his dues, and the law says he is free. So, are you willing to take the law in your hands?

And, by the way, I am a mother of three children who grew up in Amarillo.
