One down, 364 to go

I guess this is supposed to be reassuring for parents:

Paroled sex offenders in the Evansville area - and across Indiana - will be required to attend a meeting during trick-or-treat hours on Halloween.

Dubbed Operation Safe Halloween, the Indiana Department of Correction is requiring sex offenders to attend the meeting to "remove them from the community streets during this traditional children's activity," according to a news release.

There have been so many warnings about the dangers of Halloween that it's probably the one night when kids are the most supervised and watched-out for. So we get the perverts off the streets for this one night instead of the other 364. Sort of like spending hundreds of millions so airport screeners can make our lives miserable while the terrorists are already on to their next tactic.
