|Linda Walker, dumb quote talker|
Linda Walker is the mother of Dru Sjodin, who was killed in 2003 by a sex offender and for whom the Department of Justice's National Sex Offender Public Website is named. Too often, sex offenders are portrayed sympathetically while the victims are forgotten, she said. "What are we telling the victims that are still out there and alive when we keep giving [sex offenders] second and third chances?" Walker wondered. She said she sympathized with some mothers, but not when they refuse to acknowledge what their child has done. "As long as a parent feels horrible about the actions of their child, yes, I'm sympathetic toward them," Walker said. "But not toward the ones that continuously keep their heads in the sand."
I'm just wondering where all this alleged sympathy for sex offenders resides because I've seen none. Speaking of mothers with their heads in the sand, this woman has her own head in the sand. With a face that that, I hope it stays there.
