02/25/2007: The Phoenix New Times has a very riveting story about how a sexual predator–Neil Rodreick, age 29–enrolled into elementary school. Even worse was the complicity of his partners, Lonnie Stiffler (himself a convicted sex offender) and Robert Snow, in this. Stiffler was acting as the “grandfather” for the two “children” with whom he was sexually involved.
This shows the extent to which sexual predators will go to feast on children, and the level of vigilance that parents, educators, and law enforcement, must maintain to prevent that from happening.
Unfortunately, with the epidemic of teachers engaging in sex crimes, I can’t say that the educational establishment is up to the task.
