I am curious to know, just what kind of a half way house this man was in? Does this place have a Resident Director? Where was this person, when the girl was brought into the house? I have had very limited experience with half way houses. For the most part, I think they do wonderful jobs with helping people. BUT, there are a lot of neighborhoods, and communities that will not allow them. One reason being people are afraid of residents living in them. It only takes one person, to do one thing wrong, and then things are messed up for everyone else living there. It only takes one bad apple, to spoil the the whole batch.

Kudos to the quick thinking cousins that brought dad to the rescue. These predators don't deserve to live and breathe among us. Children are abused and murdered all the time at the hands of these creeps. Dad ramming his head in the wall and choking him is a cake walk to what should have been done to him. But, I give dad alot of credit for restraining himself as much as he did. The monsters are closer than you think...and that's no joke...think about it!

I'm sure it went through the proper licensing procedures. All the more reason not to live in the ghetto. You wouldn't find a half way house in the suburbs.

You need to go back to school. Learn about sentence structure, spelling, and punctuation. Your post makes almost no sense.

I have never heard of a half way house that did not have a director. However, the residents are pretty much allowed to come and go as they please with curfew restrictions. I work for an adult rehabilitation center with the main focus on addiction. We house a variety of types of people, some of which include the homeless and parolees via the court system. The rules are pretty strict...no drinking, drugs, have to work for your keep, live within civil guidelines, abide by curfew and so forth. Most people don't want these facilities in their neighborhoods because of the variety of personalities/crimes and so forth. That's pretty easy to understand. Our center is in the inner city and already in a seedy area. Personal security in and out of the facility is neccessary at all times. Rehabilitation depends on the individual and if you cannot abide by the rules...out you go! I don't know if that helps, but that's my 2 cents worth!(:

You may not find a half-way house, but you sure do have a lot of pedophiles there for little girls and boys. They need to watch you!

There is actually a halfway house here in Medina that houses nothing but sex offenders. I only found this out when I asked the police why so many of the people on the registry share the same address. And it's very close to the fairgrounds. Scary.
oh boy

WOW, I haven't heard them called that since my Dad Archie Bunker was alive. Another day in a paradise called Cleveland. Not surprised with anything that happens there anymore.

That is one lucky girl. No one really knows what would have happened had they not told their father, but we can certainly guess that it was going to be very, very bad.

I do hope no charges are brought about the father. Carnal protection instincts would push me to beating someone if they did that to my daughter too.

Halfway houses are in most every community. Rich or poor, suburbs or inner city. The community does not pre-warn it's residence, but you can certainly find out on line when are where they are located. They are finding that once one is activated, the theft rates increase practically over night. I am aware that there are some communities that are protesting and fighting back. Also, pay attention to the sexual preditor mailers, as many of them are housed at the same location and you can identify a half-way house at that point. Instruct your children to stay away from all strangers, and then emphasize particular areas where pedophiles are housed. I have found that when they are told that a pedophile lives in certain locations, they make their entire class aware of where the location is as well. They are very bright these days on stranger danger.
