“Sex offender Gregory Sean O’Neall of Des Moines, employed as a Costco food sample provider, was arrested yesterday – accused of distributing child pornography on the Internet. Investigators also say O’Neall snapped over 100 photos of unknowing young girls shopping with their parents at the Federal Way Costco where he handed out food.” See how pedos are? You never know when some perv is focusing on your child! Seattle Weekly Blogs has the rest of the story.
Imagine. You’re just minding your own business, shopping with your child and your child is being focused on and photographed by a pedophile. You have no idea that he will keep that picture, treasure it, masturbate over it or even take it into Photoshop and make it pornographic. He will add it to his collection and probably share it with other pedophiles world wide. To me, that is a stomach churning, revolting and infuriating thought.
When my kids were younger I would take them swimming. Many times I saw men photographing kids at the lake. I marched right up to them to ask why and see some ID. Out of the 7 or so men I approached, only one was from the local paper, the rest got very defensive and evasive and when I started drawing attention to them, they packed up their equipment and left. I didn’t want my kids photographed by ANYONE without my permission. I learned that pedophiles like to go where there are lots of children and then take pictures of them.
I didn’t worry about the photographer’s feelings. I cared about MY KIDS more. It’s terrible that we parents have to be so very careful when it comes to our kids. We must protect our children!!
